A kernel quoting a captain

Popcorn is like, the one snack that isn’t horrible for me. It’s not deep fried, you can go easy on the butter, and it’s crunchy. But man, it’s no free ride. For one thing, you need to pop the corn, which is 2 minutes of CHORE and when you want a snack, you rarely want to work for it you know? The second thing is, you roll the dice as to if popcorn is going to destroy your gums or not.

anyways, I guess it’s a nice reminder to floss.

It was a pretty tense situation

Panels one and two describe a situation that happened today. I was walking along and saw a big red “beware of dog” sign posted on a broken fence, and immediately laughed out loud at the joke in my head. Panel three didn’t happen, but I mean, it was a possibility!

I got distracted

There is this fun challenge going around Twitter, and I asked my Scifi club to give me six characters to draw, and here is the result! If I hadn’t started so late, I would have tried to make them all a bit more dynamic. I love the speed racer one myself!

Escapism

You know what, I might spend a week in space chuck updates here! Or something that can add up to a story. I just finished up playing one of my favourite video games and I’m in the mood for Making something With some continuity. story related for the next little while? Maybe. We’ll see.
Stay safe in this pandemic. I hope everyone who reads this is doing well.

Midgar, 500 years later

I’ve played final fantasy vii for YEARS. For about 20 years, actually. Yeesh!

I love this game so much. But I’ve never legitimately beat it. The furthest I’ve ever gotten on my own is to the last boss, but I could never beat it. Back in the PlayStation one days, that’s where the game shark would come in! I’ve bought it on PlayStation one (twice), PC (pre-steam), on the psp, ps3, ps4, iOS and Android, As well as the PlayStation classic. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I saw that they had a square soft sale on, and after the points I had saved up, I could get it on switch for like $5. The switch is the perfect video game console, and I wanted to try it out- I was itching for some neoclassic jRPG. It’s the best version by far! For some reason, It looks better then the iOS one, and the controllers (instead of using the screen) are Necessary for it to feel intuitive. Plus, they have a 3x speed feature, which is how I managed to beat it in under two weeks!

I guess that’s sort of cheating.

LEGO: it inspires even me

I love LEGO. I love making space ships and robots and cool tanks and all sorts of stuff. I make something cool and keep it on my shelf for a few weeks, and then I tear it down and make something cool again. And now that both my daughters are old enough to enjoy making stuff with LEGO, it’s a pretty easy way to hang out with them.

that being said, I don’t always see what they see. But I suppose that’s the point of LEGO, isn’t it? To teach kids how to envision something and bring it into reality, or to allow a real physical structure assume some imagined form? Both and! LEGO is great. I still don’t know what that was supposed to be though.
