(oh also by the way in case you missed the post last night, comments on the blog are acting the way they should again and not being dumped into the spam folder behind my back–seriously, I just thought nobody was commenting anymore ;_; )

So, guys!

Anyone here on Facebook? Any of you play Hammerfall?

You should probably be aware that it contains a whole hell of a lot of stolen artwork.

The creator claims all the artwork in question is either under a CC license, or he asked permission to use it.

Yeah, except, uh… not.

So now that he knows people are onto him, he’s locked down the Photobucket account where people have found the pilfered artwork to make it harder for people to find pilfered artwork, and now he’s changing filenames around to evade complaints.

So if you are a fantasy-type artist on dA, you might want to check the list and make sure he’s not stealing your shit.

Well, I played Mama Kills Animals, and I have two things to say about it:

1. It makes me want to go buy the real Cooking Mama, and

2. If you are putting feathers in your giblet gravy, you are DOING IT WRONG.

  1. Go to store
  2. See packages of two little skewers with four bite-size chunks of bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin impaled on each skewer: $4
  3. Decide that gyudon sounds tasty tomorrow and these little chunks would be awesome for that

Next day:

  1. See that rice cooker pot still needs soaked and washed
  2. Decide cooking rice the old-fashioned way sounds like too much trouble
  3. Decide to use noodles instead
  4. Grab a package of somen noodles
  5. Make gyudon
  6. Throw handful of somen noodles in
  7. Make faces at somen noodles, wish you had gotten soba or udon instead
  8. Pick out delicious onions and meat chunks, scrape lump of somen noodles off into trash

Fuck along, now.OMG IT SOUNDS LIKE DRUGS

Seriously. Seriously now, Kim. Sensationalist journalism and FUD FTL.

I love my binaural shit, I play it under whatever music I’m listening to while I’m writing or arting or whatever. But as far as it actually reproducing the effects of various drugs…

HELLO, ARE YOU STUPID, IT IS NOTHING BUT NOISE.

Amusing passage from the readme from a set of these files I found:

“And as for the equivalence with drugs, no. I still cant believe what idiot would fall for this shit. They could very likely have psychological effects, look up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_beats, but to say that these wave patterns have the same effect as these substances is ludicrous.”

And as far as I’ve seen, this is the truth.

tl;dr: RESEARCH, MOTHERFUCKER, DO YOU DO IT

Guess what HPD “lost” $50K worth of! Go on, guess.

Nope, not cash. Or drugs. Or guns.

[ETA due to linkdeath: sex toys]

Long story short: on Neopets, I just pissed away four 100 Dubloon coins, six bottled faeries, and a Christmas paintbrush (not Petpet) on a trade in which I wanted a Darigan or fire paintbrush, because I am an idiot and did not notice the word “Petpet” in between “Darigan” and “paintbrush.” And, as it turns out, of course I have no Petpets that can be painted Darigan.

And I know both of those full-blown pet brushes are worth hell of bank, and Christmas paint brushes are not all that hot a commodity, and nobody who didn’t just happen to have one of those brushes lying around gathering dust and really needed the Dubloons for whatever would have taken it, and this was still not a horrid deal. It’s my own fault, I should have double-checked, and I get the impression that this was an honest mistake and the dude was not actively trying to deceive me, and he gave me phat NP as well.  And it’s just pixels, and I can make it back, but still: duh, hurr, orz.

I am looking at you, two people who stood at their U-scan while a line seven people deep was waiting to check out, you whose U-scan-using procedure went something like this:

  1. Scan one item
  2. Tell lengthy anecdote about relative to companion
  3. Put item in bag
  4. Listen to lengthy anecdote told by companion in response to your lengthy anecdote
  5. Scan another item
  6. Repeat steps 2 through 4 several times
  7. Look up and notice “15 items or less” sign
  8. Look at your basket of approximately 10000000000000 items
  9. Giggle, go “Oops!” and laugh at people behind you
  10. Repeat steps 1-4 until done or world ends or mob of people waiting for you to get the hell off the U-scan rises up and runs you out of the store on a rail, whichever comes first

One of the other three U-scans was taken up by a person who kept disputing every single price on every single item she scanned. Another U-scan kept going “OMG PROBLEM, PLZ WAIT FOR EMPLOYEE LOL” at its poor user every time she scanned an item (I don’t blame the poor lady for this one).

Those first two? They were still there after I had scanned my armful of items, paid for them, unzipped my reusable-shopping-bags-what-fold-and-zip-into-wee-squares, and stuffed all my shit into them.

Yeah, I’m finally on the reusable shopping bag train. Not so much out of OMG LUV 4 TEH EARTH as for practical reasons (grocery loads don’t always fit in my backpack, especially if I’m hauling the laptop that day, and reusable bags hold up a lot better when dangling from my handlebars). I have a few canvas ones, but I hadn’t used them much. Hauling them around and pausing to remove them from my backpack was kind of a pain.

So yesterday I went to Target, because they have some neat snacks and things the normal grocery store does not, and I realized halfway there that I had forgotten to roll up my big canvas shopping backpack and bungee-cord it to my package carrier. Crap. Oh well, I thought, I’d just buy a cheap tote bag or backpack or something if it came to that.

Well, right inside the door, there were reusable shopping bags. $1 each. The traditional kind, and these neat fold-and-zip ones. I just about swooned. Oh, convenient fold-and-zip reusable shopping bags, where have you been all my life?

I got a handful of them. Now they stay in the little side pockets on my backpack, so I can whip them right out and unzip them and shove shit in them as needed. Several of them could also easily be stuffed into my purse.

I also went to the Toys R’ Us next door to the Target and found this.

This was exactly what I didn’t know I wanted. In a nutshell: it is a cookbook that deals with using silicone cupcake cups to cook things. All kinds of things. From cupcakes to eggs to little mini-lasagnas to rice to quiche. Yes, it’s sold as a kids’ book, but how perfect is that for us bento-packers? So I decided I might like to try making some scalloped potatoes in a cup. Slightly different recipe from the book, but same general procedure.

Well, I got organic half-n-half and ham and cheddar and asiago and garlic. Notice what is not on that list. >_<

Oh well. I didn’t need to make them for lunch tomorrow, as I still have half of the chicken lo mein I got today in the fridge. I am going to bake up some pasta, though. Or maybe make a ham-n-cheese noodle bake or something. nom.

Finally, there is a tiny update over in 100 Candles-land: a new splash and a new preview.
