Originally posted image by image on tumblr, but reading backwards sucks.

The following clips are raw footage excerpts from Alex Kralie, a college friend of mine.

In 2006, Alex was in the process of shooting his student film, entitled Oregon Trail. Over the three months that this took place, his film crew complained of freak weather, illness, injured oxen and poor fording decisions.

Alex and his crew vanished without a trace, but these images came into my hands. At the time I was too unnerved to look through them, and eventually forgot about them.

A few days ago I found them filed away in the back of my images folder.

Shoes, dresses, hats and sundry other clothes!

I SHIP TO ANYWHERE! (Although international shipping costs more than local.)


The longer version: I'm clearing out my wardrobe, so there are loads of awesome deals at my Ebay account, including shoes, dresses, hats and all kinds of other clothes.

All auctions are starting at 99p (US $1.60), and most of them don't have bids yet, so run over there and don't miss out!

What is this thing I am doing.

Step 1: Be given a character of one's own and a friend's character. Shuffle music and declare the first result their theme song.
Step 2: Repeat until you have ten songs.
Step 3: Derp passionately.
Step 4 (optional): Plan to make a pretty cover, but realise that you're still procrastinating on work.

Incorrect: "Anytime" -- which is an incorrect adjective model to the tune of "everyday" (which is, in fact, an adjective, not a propositional phrase)

Proper: "Any time." (Which is a prepositional phrase.)

WRONG: "I wear these clothes everyday."
RIGHT: "This is my everyday look."

Originally here. Sometimes anonymous makes me so happy.

I should maybe start following the -secrets comms again, because both times I've stuck my head into them recently I've discovered something cool. But I won't, because if I do I'll emerge weeks later, blinking in the sunlight and wondering where all my time disappeared to.

As I was writing this, mouette_lunaire linked a beautiful, wonderful website which corrects mounds upon mounds of common errors. I... I think the site and I need some time alone right now.

According to the laws of irony, there will be a grammatical error somewhere in this post.

VITAL EDIT: Please take a moment to enjoy the antics of that friendly creature, the Alot.

You open your bedroom door and unexpectedly spot a housemate in the hallway outside. Do you:

(a) Say good morning, let her past and continue on your way?
(b) Jump and startle loudly enough that she notices and gives you a weird look, then say hi really awkwardly and retreat back into your room?

If you chose (b), then you're probably just as clueless as I am as to why, but sup bad reactions brother. /fistbump of shame

Because I'm just cool that way. New layout. New banner, even, though it's a redraw of the same concept I had up before.

Oh Slenderlamb. I wish I knew how to quit you.

So you know how the game Logical Journey of the Zoombinis is infamous for not running in Vista? Okay, maybe not, but just trust me on that one if you've never tried getting it to work.


I am a genius, etc etc.

Well, it mostly involved googling around for patches and programmes, but there was also a bit where I had to work around some incorrect instructions and also that stupid Quicktime problem where the game refuses to work without a version about half a dozen times older than the current one. And then in the afternoon? I got my laptop's sound recording problem straightened out.

I'm more happy with this than is likely to be proper. See, most of the time I'm shit with computers. BUT NOT TODAY.

In the name of triumph and nostalgia, here is the intro to Zoombinis. It's basically a string of logic and reasoning puzzles dressed up as fancy frog rides and pizza-making challenges. For the record, the Mudball Wall level is still the best thing ever.

This is a trailer for a game. I have no sodding idea what the game is about besides zombies, but I have been moved, puzzled and highly entertained. Why not experience these emotions for yourself by clicking on the play button presented for you here?

In honour of friending a new friend onto my friends-list. Sup, agapi42.

I should really start posting here again. And update the links section. And sort out the icons now that my paid account's expired. And maybe update the layout? I dunno, it depends on how table-breaking an embedded video turns out to be. (Fake edit: Cocks. At the least I should widen the entries a bit.)

This journal is now about things that are awesome.

mouette_lunaire did a (highly spoilery) play-by-play reaction post to Amnesia: the Dark Descent and informed me that I needed to do the same thing. And since I'm a cheapass and I'm frightened of Penumbra, it's time for a freeware adventure game!

In which I display a talent for crashing helicopters that aren't even mine.Collapse )

...You know what, let's make this a to-be-continued kind of deal.
