And I was on such a good streak, too…
I know, I know, I was doing pretty good, updatin’ pretty regular, and then, back to nothing. What happened? Nerd things. What could be more nerdy than liveblogging a homestuck liveblog or liveblogging in english a rom hacked fan translation of a video game only released in Japan? well, this:
Yup, a new edition of D&D, and despite my best intentions, I can’t bring myself to hate it. Fortunately, my initial flurry of hypothetical character building has died down now. Unfortunately, another major nerd distraction looms on the horizon:
I’m not sure if any of the six of you who follow me (and yes, I’m including you, my newest followers xXxMommyTooHottiexXx, PittsburgPumaPussyParade, and TitsSoLowLikeWoooooaah, because you’re totally real people and not just robots dredging the ‘mother’ tag) know what this is, but let me tell you, I’ve been waiting 15 years for that overpriced plastic skeleton pope toy and it is glorious.
So anyway, I’ll try and get some more blogging in between now and when I can actually buy that sucker, but no promises.
Have you heard about Peter Capaldi refusing to act a romantic relationship with Clara? Do you think he'll do well, or be smothered by Moffat?
From what I’ve gathered, Peter Capaldi is a huge fan of Doctor Who that pretended to be a huge Moffat stan until he’d signed an airtight contract, at which point he revealed he hates the direction Moffat was taking the show he loves, plans to systematically undo it to the best of his ability, has been openly mocking and refusing the participate in parts of the script he doesn’t think are true to the character, and insisting that they “won’t chase him off this show,” which is basically saying “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”
I think the new season of Doctor Who is going to be glorious.
Capaldi…let me love you.
I’m not a Dr. Who fan, just reposting this bit here because, if true, it seems relevant to some of Lobacs interests, and some of her complaints about the direction the source material of those interests has been taking in the last few years.
Mother 1, part 3 - Grave Danger
You get to be a zombie! And you get to be a zombies! We all get to be zombies!!!!!
Anyway, last time we left off, I had just finished shaking down the town of Mother’s Day for quest hooks, and come up with three different leads:
- Zombies have risen in the graveyard to the south, and the intrepid Sception’s friend, neighbor, and potential unrequited childhood sweetheart Pippi was last seen in that area.
- Cruel and abusive pet shop owners in the town department store had kidnapped a poor baby canary away from its parents. Having paid the vile lot’s ransom demands, I must now return the child to its family in Canary Village to the north.
- The oppressed animals incarcerated in the local zoo have finally risen up to throw off the shackles of mankind. At some point I must visit to broker some truce, or an all out race war may erupt.
Pretty heady stuff for a kid’s game.
I don’t know where the zoo is yet, and of the two other two plot threads, rescuing Pippi seems to be the most urgent, so it’s time to head south towards the cemetary!
April 5, 2013 (asks) - Wherein Lobac Faces the Music
I don’t really intend to go through all Lobac’s asks. I’ve been skipping them thus far, actually, figuring the time would be better spent getting further in her blog. But I’m feelinga bit under the weather today, and don’t want to bother with a full post, and this particular ask pile includes Lobac’s first album reaction, so I seems a nice enough spot to make an exception.
Plus it also provided a nice excuse to pick up Homestuck albums 1-4 and do a brief album commentary myself. So… yeah. Continued under cut, I guess.
Not That Kind of Mother
Hey, look at that, I mean, it’s not much yet, but it seems like the old notes train is starting to pick up a bit o’ steam again!
And hey, the notes mostly seem to be for the liveblog of my progress through Mother I, aka Earthbound Zero. That’s sorta nice, actually. Now I feel good for starting… wait.
Wait, no, what?
I just… I mean? What?
Mother as in the video game, people, the video game about a bunch of children, not as in ‘juicy mature milf sexy cougar ass’ god dammit tumblr, what the fuck is wrong with you?!
Look, I’m not Christian, so I really don’t say this often, but y’all need to find Jesus, I fucking swear to God.
Mother 1, part 2: Walk About Town
Okok, So in part 1 we learned a bit about Sception’s troubling family history, and saved his home and family from the grave threat of a couple lamps and a toy doll. Time to set out into the world and begin this grand adventure in style!
Leaving home for the first time! Our little man’s growing up! *tear
