Category: Catch-All

Misc screenshots

I’m probably becoming a little bored with FFXV again, even Anseling. After a while I feel like everything screenshot-wise starts to look the same or something. Would help if I played more story sections perhaps, or used more NPC mods, but constant swapping of save files, mods, and cheatengine tables becomes annoying. I’ve already taken a lot of story screens anyway, but they were posted in the old Imgur folders instead of this blog (linked to in the page headers up top).

Catching up with films/TV and running through Amazon finally looking for bluray’s of fave films. When VHS was a thing I bought tons of those (still have most in storage boxes) and bought a fair number of DVD collections, but I’ve bought very few bluray’s since I now typically stream vs. physical media. Noticed 4k blurays are cheapish these days, perhaps it’s time for a 4k bluray player.  Or wait 8-10 more years for 8k. You know it’s coming.  A few “8k” tv’s already exist, but there’s no actual 8k content so what’s the point, yet.  But an 8k, 75+ inch TV + 8k versions of Aliens or Terminator 2 or Lord of the Rings or some animes … I might never leave the recliner. Or go to a theater again, ever.  Not that I go to theaters much at all, already. We’re getting close to buying a new main/living room TV – it’ll be at least a 65-incher this time. That’ll be fun to occasionally game on (might inspire me to buy the new gen. Playstation).  Lately I want bigger and bigger screens. I’m seriously considering chucking the 43″ 4k TV that sits *on* my desk and mounting a giant 4k TV on the wall behind my desk for PC use, instead.  Super-size me.

Red bottomed soles

I’ve been spending a lot of time on YouTube lately, watching film reviewers, “people reacting to something” videos, and linguist/accent analysis videos. Also, plenty of entertainment stuff like SNL skits and talk show snippets. I came across a short interview with Adam Driver on Stephen Colbert’s show (Adam is a cutie btw) and in the middle of it all of a sudden …

I laughed hysterically almost immediately, because you know what it instantly brought to mind?  This:

I had a pic of all the bros camping where you could see the red soles, from the ol’ forum-thread posting days, but I couldn’t find it in my 2,349,104 files so there’s this other old one instead.

Garuda summon sky (scenic)

Garuda summon creates a huge dark/cloudy sky box. It’s rather pretty in a muted way.
If you look at the top center of the first picture, the black dot is Garuda. 😀

Also … Happy New Year.

I went to the store last night and bought two random bottles of cabernet sauvignon. I almost never drink (maybe once or twice a year at most) but was in the mood/it’s a holiday right. I know absolutely zip about wine, but I can confidently say that the difference between a $50 bottle of wine and a $20 bottle of wine is …. thirty dollars. 😛  After initial tasting I then “ruined” both by dumping a mix of 7-Up and diet Mt. Dew into them for a strongish “wine cooler” effect. All alcoholic beverages are much better tasting when you can taste a lot less of the actual alcohol.

Many happy returns and all that.

This is not FFXV

Paul Rudd can do no wrong.
It’s an old video but I still watch it now and then and it always makes me grin. That snapping arm swinging dance motion he does at around 5:15 in the video? Super sexy. Don’t ask why, I can’t tell you. It just is.

Also, since I was a teen in the early and mid-80’s, Rudd and Fallon’s MV recreations are so awesome. 😀 Rudd does the singing, too.

I wonder if I should install/start a “stuff I like/makes me laugh etc” review/ruminations blog.  As bored as I am in the wee hours, I might post to it quite often these days. I used to do “it’s my life” semi-journal blogs in the way past – I’m no longer interested in that sort of thing. Writing about entertainment thingies that I like (or dislike), however …I might get into that again. Plus it’d be a way to keep all such things in one place, for myself.

FFXV vine+memes (making chrs. do silly things)

Not my video. A lot of short bits using animated ffxv characters (the same models that are used in many MMD’s) compiled together. The funny is hit and miss (language warning for anyone sensitive to such) but the very last one (starts around the 5 minute mark) had me ROFL.

I remember the “kitty cat dance” video it’s based on, from years and years ago – having the usually super-serious Ignis mimic it was utterly hilarious.

I always love it when you take stoic chrs. and mod/meme them into out-of-character actions. Which is what I did a lot with poor, tragic Boone from Fallout:New Vegas, back when, like in the below video (I made a few serious FO:NV vids too but…).  Oh man what I’d give for a dance mod for FFXV.

Comment form should be fixed

I had to uninstall then reinstall an updated version of the comment plug-in I use, but it seems to no longer conflict with adblockers.  Also, unrelated, I think you don’t have to use the IMG tags to insert a linked image into the comment field anymore. If you simply cut-paste a direct image hyperlink/url, it automatically displays as the image when you hit Post. At least with .jpg extensions, didn’t test anything else.

And since it’s not a pic-blog without a pic …
