I ran my first game of a Star Wars RPG the other day and so I'm been browsing the internet for various star wars things. In my travels, I was surprised to learn that there's an Aunt Beru action figure. I really can't imagine this was a big Christmas seller
Yes, for $6 on Amazon, you can own this figure. And while you're there, have a look out for Uncle Owen too. Recreate that scene where Luke is angsty because he wanted to go to Tosche station to pick up some power converters but has to do chores instead Star Wars: Power of the Force Flashback Aunt Beru Action Figure
|Karen as Edward Scissor Hands, Violet as Margo Tenenbaum, me as Robin Williams Movies|
In 2012, I wasn't Robin Williams for Halloween, I was Robin Williams movies
for Halloween. It's a pretty easy costume as far as lazy costumes go. I mostly put it together with stuff from the thrift store. Links below go to amazon pages for each movie (some like $3 or less) or to products similar to the ones I used.
: Pans and thrift store sweater (no joke, by the way, I got it for 80 cents and there was a $50 price tag still on it,
Good Will Hunting
: A letter (hard to see) saying "it's not your fault, it's not your fault"
Obviously you could do other movies too. Like One Hour Photo
if you have some old negatives lying around
Anyhow, I hope that helps if you are looking for obscure, funny, or clever costume ideas. I figured I'd put this up now so I get all the Google hits come October.
Here is is in the year 1900 and here he is today. He was born in 1832. Go read about him:
I've been listening to a few episodes of the Smart Passive Income
podcast and, for the heck of it, I'm trying making an amazon affiliates website. And so, I introduce to the world, Board Games For... (Board Game Reviews)
which is a quick website where I write blurbs about board games with the intent of redirecting them to the Amazon page for those games where I would get a cut of the money if someone buys it.
We'll see how it works out. I've got to generate all the content for the blog now, but the main goal is to get people onto the site and over to Amazon.
So let's say you're Taylor Swift. I'm sure all the time fourteen year old girls say to you, "YOU GET ME, TAYLOR!" and "Your song meant so much to me! I did
know that he was trouble when he walked in! Your music really helped me get through a hard time! I told him we were never ever ever getting back together!"
But I wonder if you are other musicians if anyone is just ever like "hey so at work I spend a lot of time filing TPS reports and doing HR duties and I like listening to your music when I do it.
Anyhow, in case anyone was looking for a good set of songs to do mortgages to, here is mine. The key is keeping things pretty fast paced. Enjoy all of my both good and/or embarrassing songs!
Ironically, lyrics may not be safe for work on a few of these.
[A mashup a Jay Z and Radiohead. NSFW]
This song except the extended
version. From Attack on Titan [Hulu Link]
which I watched in like 5 days while feeding our new baby in the middle of the night. If you think this is nerdy, wait until a few songs down
I've always found the video kind of obnoxious but the song catchy. It's a Far East Movement
Here are a pic from browsing imgur.com on my phone
I'm posting from my phone and am curious to see how this looks later.
And I'm sure this would only be in certain cities and blah blah blah but still a very sci-fi sort of idea.
Before and After visual effects on the set of the Great Gatsby. Special effects.

Someone made a game about developing games. That game got pirated. So, to fight back, the real life developers made it so that if you were playing a pirated copy of the game, your in-game game company would go bankrupt from piracy: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-04-29-game-dev-tycoon-forces-those-who-pirate-the-game-to-unwittingly-fail-from-piracy
