Command Central

Cleaned up my desk a bit. Thought I'd post a picture since it's such a rare occasion.

Playing with Saints Row the Third Initiation Station

Steam added Saint's Row The Third's Initiation Station program to their lineup last night. Had a little fun with it making a Candyace character.

Looking forward to getting this game!

Final Fantasy XIV beta fun

Candy Ace has decided to try out the new incarnation of an old bad habit: Final Fantasy XIV. Overall, I'd say they have a ways to go before releasing at the end of the month, but I'm having some fun.

One little problem I hope they fix:
Yellow named mobs are supposed to be even or challenging to beat. This little yellow fella whacked me for 4x my total HP.Thanks Spiny Dormouse!
More to come later...

Simon Tofield has released another of his 'Simon's Cat' videos. Once again, this video hits cat ownership dead on.

I first saw this clip yesterday and it had around 1200 views. This morning, it has over 300,000. Lots of cat people out there on the internet.
If you haven't seen the other Simon Cat clips, click here and here.

Crom! This guy is big!

I met the big guy today, the King of Aquilonia. Conan finally felt all the ability to summon an Atlantian god warranted a little face time. The first thing I noticed when he walked up to me was: Wow! This guy is BIG!
The other thing I noticed while he talked was he never seemed to open his eyes all the way. He kind of had the Rocky thing going like he was about to fall asleep. I guess I was boring him. He gave me a new ring that was marginally better than the one I got 20 levels ago, but what are you going to do? Conan also gave me a task where if I finished it, maybe I'd get to join his elite guards, The Black Dragons. We'll see.
When we were done talking, he just stood there and let me take his picture. I took a couple and noticed he wasn't really paying an attention so....
I relaxed in his chair for a while. A gal could get used to a big chair like this! Just needs some big guys with feather fans on either side.

Nature Show Animation

Everyone loves a good nature documentary. Getting a chance to watch animals go about their daily business without having to actually go out and watch the real thing has its appeal. I mean who really wants to go out and watch European Water Shrews? They're so small and fast , you may miss the things that really go on. This clip slows down the action for you. Enjoy!

Where's Candyace?

I haven't posted much this month at all. I've been a little more involved with other projects. Not all of these projects have been all that productive since a friend has loaned me a pile of DVDs to catch me up on my Asian Cinema. One of the things I finally got to see what Studio Ghibli's "Whisper of the Heart" (or 'Mimi wo sumaseba' - If you Listen Closely). The story revolves around a young girl's resolve to challenge herself to follow her dream.
I can relate to the bookworm main character's attempt at writing her own story and the huge difference between reading and writing. I read all the time but only recently started writing my own material. It's very difficult to have something to say and put it into words for others to read and enjoy. Even reading some of the posts here, I cringe at the way I wrote out what I was trying to say. Like the old shop owner tells her, your talent is a rough stone that requires cutting and polishing until you get the gem you seek. I've got some pretty serious cutting and polishing to do myself. Hopefully, one day I'll have that shiny gem to enjoy.
This clip shows the main character Shizuku singing the theme song that many people will recognize even if they don't speak Japanese.
