The Les Mis Fortune Cookie Game

Instead of adding “in bed” or “on the toilet” to the ends of fortune cookie fortunes, add “24601!”  Credit to Jenny (peachy00keen).

the blob: do you collect anything? if so, what & why?

Nothing too seriously.  I do still collect foreign coins, but I do not go out of my way to add to my collection.  I suppose I could say I collect physical copies of video games and albums since that is no longer really the norm.

mothra: what is something dangerous that attracts or fascinates you?

Fire :D

werewolf: if you could change into any nonhuman animal and back at will, what animal would you change into and why?

Probably some sort of insect—resilient and able to fly.

sharktopus: what is something you’ve done that was ridiculous or a bad decision?

Screening Iron Sky between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.  We completely forgot until the event had already been scheduled.  As the sole Jewish member of the executive board, I feel particularly bad about that mistake.

robot: what is a habit you do without thinking?

Picking at my nails.  I am trying to be more conscious of that habit and put a stop to it.

Two: I intend to cosplay Once Upon A Time Rumplestiltskin in the morning since the make-up is easier to put on quickly before classes (and I enjoy playing characters who are chaotic evil on the surface), and then I will change into male!Elphaba later in the day.

I was initially going to be the Wicked Witch of the West all day, but I watched OUAT as part of my “research” and realized how much fun it could be to play Rumple.

so what IS your tora-costume? -annoying anon

I am not sure yet.  I still need to finish making my Halloween costumes!  I am considering Tron or a borg, but I have not decided on anything yet.

// I tripped over my words attempting to say “Tora-Con costume”.
Derek: Did you just say “Tora-Costume”?
Me: Is that what I said?
Derek: Yes.
Me: Why have I not been saying that all along?‽
friend: says something that vaguely references song lyric
me: PERFORMS ENTIRE SONG

3D modeling would be so much easier if humans did not have fingers.

But then how would we manipulate the keyboard and mouse controls?

Also, Skyler already made the same joke on Facebook.

The last Twilight movie comes out this month. It’s time for a Robert Pattinson Tumblr roundup!

aplacecalledorange:

I think we should all celebrate by taking a moment to appreciate Robert Pattinson’s attitude and I’m laughing so much right now.

JUST ALL THAT HE IS.

After various setbacks, I finally got my ADT-1 (Android TV dev box) to where I physically am. Here are some of my initial impressions:

  • The box itself is gorgeous. I wish every game console and set top box looked this sleek.
  • The gamepad feels subpar compared to, say, an Xbox 360 controller, but it does its job.
  • Initial setup was annoyingly painful on the RIT wireless since the device cannot connect to a WPA2 network that requires a username and password and lacks a web browser for authentication on the unsecured network.
  • Android TV feels very responsive, but the fact that I have to navigate using a d-pad means I will never fully love the experience.
  • The number of Play Store apps I can use on Android TV is disappointing. Android has had d-pad support from the start!
  • The games that officially have Android TV support play well, though Google Play Games services appear to be broken.
  • For the moment, emulators seem to be the best way to play the greatest variety of games on Android TV, but hopefully that will change.
  • I am genuinely excited to try to port some of my games to this thing.
  • I am also excited the gamepad can be paired to my Chromebook, and it works with the HTML5 Gamepad API!
