so apparently I'm doing these in two month bundles? okay.

* MARIO AND LUIGI DREAM TEAM IS ACES. such a fun game, luigi at maximum cuteness level, very hoo. the yoshis all talk about food constantly, one of them wants to eat the badges in the badge shop, yoshi stop. boss brickle is creepy. there are hoos everywhere who talk in a very hoo manner. peachy has adoring fans and has recovered from her kidnapping (though she might well get kidnapped again you know how it is). the combat is fun and the bposs battles are nicely challenging, there are many collectables in the form of delicious BEANS, did I mention LUIGI yet. LUIGI! he makes the sweetest faces on the lower screen and his snoring is adorable. mario is his bbbff. all is right in the world.

* only one person signed up for my art exchange. which sucks because I was super excited for it. I sent a lot of asks on tumblr to people with fancharacters asking if they'd join or at least promote it but I only got two replies. did they get the asks and ignore them? was it rude? or did they just get eaten by tumblr. I wish I knew.

* Oto got me lots of pokemon cards and when I feel better I'm going to open some packs.

* I'm playing Extrasolar which is good at giving me a reason to get up in the mornings. haha that sounds grimmer than I meant it to. but. accurate.

* my life is not very exciting but my dreams are nice
A few browser-based games, some stories, comics, a rover and a let's play!

Lines of Black and White
And escape-the-room game with a tweeeest. The gameplay is a little too easy but it's a cute concept that could be really fun in a larger game.

Reprisal
Like Populous, but free! You try to lead tiny, stupid people to conquer and build by manipulating the environment and raining fire upon your enemies. I suck at it.

Gunnerkrigg Court
I hope you're already reading this! A comic about a girl who goes to live at a magical boarding school. Really slow burner but consistently good. The art improves!

Vattu
A comic about a girl who goes to live in an oppressive regime. Less dreamy and more grounded than Rice Boy, which may or may not please your surrealism salivary glands.

Cucumber Quest!
A delicious comic about a boy called Cucumber who goes on a quest. Very Nintendo-esque, very tasty-looking art.

Glitch
A MMO game with a cute look and a bizarre sense of humour (you nibble pigs to acquire meat, they like this). Lots of repetitive tasks to do to earn badges and dull sorrows.

Curiosity's twitter
He's still up there, beetling about and drilling rocks. I hear that one of the rocks has a twitter now too, but I think that might be going a bit to far or me.

Infinity Plus Fiction Archive
Sci-Fi stories and excerpts, ranging fro good to terrible as usual.

Let's Play Deadly Premonition
This game won an award for "Best Worst Game" or possibly "Worst Best Game". It is An Experience. There's a more ~official~ SA Let's Play but this one is done by a lady (plus point in my book) and balances humour nicely with shutting up, something not many LPers can do.
In this comic (very jokey suicide warning I guess?) Reginald is basically me. Every so often when I'm just hanging about I'll make a sort of moaning noise, and that means I am remembering my past.

I have been trying to be a better person lately, and do more stuff for the world! I can't volunteer or anything so I've basically just been signing petitions on Change.org and playing Free Rice. Still at least it's something right?

In EXCELLENT news, we finally got a Wii! So I'm going to be KARTING THE NIGHT AWAY with my old buddies from the mushroom kingdom!

Okay so, guys, I am in the process of transferring to dreamwidth. This link explains why, with a big side helping of this (don't read the comments if you're not feeling like a hate brace) plus of course so many other people have moved over, and the community there just seems way more my style. I'm trying to subscribe to people over there and remove them over here, so if you have a dreamwidth-flavoured alternative, please tell me! If you don't, I have one code to spare, plus there's this awesome community: http://dw-codesharing.dreamwidth.org/

I'll probably still keep my lj for a while longer, so I'll be able to see your friends-locked posts, but maybe there's a way to do that from dw? I dunno, I'm not feeling very bright at the moment IB

OH OF COURSE my dw name is pyrrhocorax.dreamwidth.org

NOT FUCKING COOL, AMAZON

This is just crazy. Did they think no-one would notice or something? I really hope this is a mistake or there's a database bug or something, because otherwise...I seriously thought the world was doing better than that.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFffffffffbaaaaaw
So I am very late with this, and you probably won't get whatever you ask for until new year, but CHRISTMAS LIST TIME.

If you want something, just ask and I will see what I can do, call in a few favours, see a man about a dog, what have you. Doesn't matter whether I know you or not, you can comment anonymously if you like.

Plus happy meme from Tcarah!
Rules: For 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day.

THIS I love the original flash, I really really love the song, and my love for Talana is all-encompassing. Oh blue skinned alien chicks, why must you be so ridiculously sexy and cool and badass? YOU WOULD MAKE ME DOUBT MY SEXUALITY IF I HAD ONE.

I love them lolruses more than I should. I mean, they're an internet meme. BUT I LIKE THEM.

Went for a picnic today. It was nice, too cold and wet to get out of the car, but we saw a pair of rooks building a nest and talked about cancer. Oh cancer why must you intrude on all my conversations this is why I can never get a date with a cheerleader.

Going to draw crazy aliens now OH AND I got an oekaki blog thing yo.
AND BY ALL THE COOL KIDS I MEAN ICARUS.

Wedsday Music Meme!
feel free to grab this and repost it.
rules: post a song (or a few) related to an alphabetic letter in accordance with the number of meme post...IE, first post is letter A. second post, B. Third, C...

But! that letter must stand for a theme. you make up the theme, but all the songs should relate to said theme.

So it's not Wednesday. But I keep missing it, so today, dammit, I am starting this. THE INTERNET NEEDS MORE MUSIC MEMES.

A is for Alcohols

Grateful Dead - Brown-eyed Woman OH HEY LOOK MY CHILDHOOD. I actually really like Grenadine :B

Da Vinci's Notebook - Another Irish Drinking Song I discovered this yonks ago when I was just discovering the joys of the internet. Me and Oto were hypnotized, learnt it off by heart, and sang it constantly for weeks. In the end it got parentally banned after we tried to start up a rousing sing song half way down the motorway at five in the morning.

Dropkick Murphy's - Kiss Me I'm Shitfaced FINALLY, A SENTIMENT WE CAN ALL GET BEHIND. My Main Man Mickie introduced me to this.

IN OTHER NEWS This guy is totally awesome. I like Manimali 1 and 2 best, particularly the swan, but the Van Gogh chick is also great.
