Mini Derperella is a ‘soft sculpture’ I made. It is of Derperella. The chicken. SIGH, YES I KNOW
Only 3.25” tall, made of epoxy, glass eyes, faux fur, paint.
I really want this for some reason. The reason is ‘chickens’, of course.
This is very, very cool and well done! :O
Farewell To The Fair ground - White Lies
Favourite part of the song:
We’ll head south, just hold my hand now,
I feel like I’m casting off my clothes,
and I’m running through the snow towards the sunset,
and I’m always with you.
First Kakapo Egg Hatching Since 2011
You know what, whatever. Let’s ignore the drama and stress and pain and how awful life is right now.
Because…. A BABY KAKAPO JUST HATCHED!!!!
This is the first baby in a few years, and its hatching brings the population to a grand total of… 125, I think? In the whole world. So this is kind of a big deal.
That made me very happy when I heard about it. Kakapos are so adorable.
Man, all the memories…
That was one eerie soundtrack.
I am feeling very down about Amy Hennig leaving Naughty Dog. I really hope it’s just a rumor that she was pressured to leave because that would taint my perception of this company a whole lot. And of the games.
I found Uncharted at a time when I was really desperate for well written characters, male and female. I was so fed up with the portrayal of women - and then I bought Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune on a whim. And was so goddamn happy because Elena Fisher was/is such a great character and then the credits rolled and I learn that it was written by a woman, too. It may sound cheesy and predictable, but that meant a lot to me. And it still does.
I am conflicted about Uncharted 4 now. Because I had always viewed it as “another game by Amy Hennig, yay!” So now, what…? I hope that she still got to work a lot on it and that it stays true to the other games. I suppose we shall see but I will wait for reviews from trustworthy sources and see wether it will disappoint or please me before I blindly buy it. :I
I watched a playthrough of Golden Abyss and while it was enjoyable, it lacked something I couldn’t really pin down. It’s not written by her and somehow you can tell. (And don’t remind me of the novel that because that one is so out of character, it’s painful to read.)
Meanwhile, I will keep a close eye on where Hennig goes next and what new franchises she gets to create or work on.
Commonly known as Weedy Scorpionfish, Popeyed Scorpionfish or the Purple Tassled Rhino Scorpionfish, Rhinopias frondosa (Scorpaenidae) is a spectacular fish, very rare, but once found, can be easily located again as they tend to stay at the same place unless disturbed.
The colors will vary but they’re generally in red, purple, orangish hues. The specimen shown is purple variation.
