MCM CRAZY!

HEY! i went to MCM yesterday :D IT WAS FUN!
I went with some friends because i wanted to see Matt and Tom from Eddsworld. Also Tom because he is Tomska which is awesome in itself... and of course Bing, Jack and Dean were there and Jamie. Which was AWESOME. And i met Mandy who, though it took me a while to realise it, was the girl is Tomska's video musical suicide.

It was safe to say i had a good day.

We arrived at about half eleven because we got lost on trains (i like trains...) but as soon as we got our tickets and got in i literally RAN to find them all (i just kind of assumed that they would all be in the same place because that does make sense if you think about it). I lost my friends for a few minutes, then they found me, but when they saw the MASSIVE queue's and crowds around the ASDF stall they were like 'ummm.... no.' so i was left alone. But i really didn't care XD i went to the Eddsworld stall first because there were less people and i was always more of an Eddsworld fan, thats how i found Tomska. So i bought 2 Tshits -
Broccoli  and not the face (which i am wearing now)
and then i got a free poster :3
which looked like:
(Eddsworld merch : http://sharkrobot.com/eddsworld )
I got matt to sign that (squeeness) then i bundled my way over to Tom and got him to sign it XD
aaaand i got someone to take this for me :3 :
Me and Tom :3 crappy quality but still SQUEE XD
I moved on to Bing then, and bought  the emergency Top Hat in black. as well as his comic Captain Baculum 1:

I also got him to sign my ASDF books i got last year (Tom and Edd had already signed them) and he noted Edds signature. I got my picture with him too XD:
He pulled a different funny face for every picture i saw him do :P
(Bing merch : http://store.smzv.com/ )
After that, i went to Jack and Dean's side of the Table and bought an awesome wristband
and this got taken:


I also got them to sign my asdf books. Then, when i got bored of wandering around the huge hall, i went back to the Eddsworld stall and got Matt and Mandy to sign my asdf books, so they ended up like this :

and i got a picture (of course)
got into cool discussions and such with people :D (Mandy was really nice)
I made the rounds of signatures again when i got an asdf poster (though Jack and Dean complained that they 'weren't in that one' XD) , and i bought a Desmond the moon bear Tshort from Tom because he said he was 'sick of the sight of them' and there were apparently only 100 ever made. i got one of the last ones and he signed it :3
here is a collection of SOME of the merch i bought:
I bought a Kitten shopping Tshirt and 3 Eddsworld badges as well. I wanted some of Matts Merch but i ran out of money....

If you dont actually know who these people are then i shall show you:

You can find many others through their videos.
I did loads of other stuff too, there were loads of cool Cosplayers, an abundance of free hugs, fricken expensive Tea and comic artists who branded me as awesome!
and drew me a cool picture. he is: http://matthasawebsite.com/ he was really quite nice, i like him :D
i would say more but...
I AM TIRED AND I NEED TO REVISE FOR MY EXAMS THAT I SHALL FAIL!!
so here is a cool picture and proof i didn't go alone:

I found loads of cool Dark room stuff I did in College. I think they look cool XD


They are made out of newspaper and other bits and bobs, in this case ribbon and a light bulb. :D



(my hand XD)

They are really random, but seeing as i was bored i started scanning things into my computer, so here we go XD Too bad i am done for College Art until september, i would have liked to do more because this was really fun. I forgotten what the machines we were using are called but apparantly they have stopped making them and cannot be replaced. So it was heavily implied that breaking them would mean certain death... :)

They all had names though, of the characters from Friends, i got to work with Joey and Phoebe on two separate days, because we took pictures with pinhole cameras as well but i stuck them on my Art sheets. So they wont ever be resurfacing i suppose, they are property of the Art department now :D

So anyway... enjoy.

Argos Value :D

This is an amazing find for me :D I have spent my life plagued with frizzy and curly hair. Not fun i can tell you. And i would spend HOURS straightening it. I have had a few different straighteners in my time. The first ones i ever got were strange, they were cordless straighteners that you would leave to heat up and charge for a few minutes and then use for a few minutes and it was a horrible cycle of disappointment. It took ages to straighten my hair that ended at my waist. NOT WORTH IT. Though i cannot actually remember what brand those straighteners are, my advice for the future is steer clear of cordless ones.

Next i had GHD's and they were wonderful :D they straightened my hair so well, and i completely understood the hype around them after that. No matter what people will tell you they are GREAT value for money, and they are very expensive so that should tell you a lot about them. You get great control over the settings, or at least more control than my charged-up cordless straighteners which, i can tell you, made me very happy.

I broke them.

I don't know how or why but the wire exploded off the straighteners once when i was using them, sparking there and at the plug on the wall. I was not impressed, it meant that i couldn't straighten my hair for AGES. That there is some teenage drama for you ;)

So my mother bought me some Tresseme hair straighteners that were ok. They did the job
I think they were these ones:
Philips HP4642/27 Tresemme Ceramic Hair Straightener

They are quite good i have to admit, but for some reason would always allow my hair to have a FLICK to it at the bottom. I thought it was just the natural wave of my hair defying all that i could do to cultivate it. Don't believe me? Here is proof:

...
Ok it,s not a PERFECT representation but in my defense, that's because i often either didn't take a picture of my annoying hair or spent longer or a LOT more effort straightening it if i wanted to take a picture.....
Anyways i broke those ones too, surprise surprise, one day it just suddenly tripped the fuse in my room (luckily my room has the fuse box in it so it wasn't too much effort to fix XD) the fuse in its plug was fine so i perceived them as being broken. I didn't know anything about thermal fuses so i decided to go on ebay for some new straighteners. And here is the tale of the ones i found. The CHEAPEST ones. because i an a stingy..... person.

Argos Value hair straighteners. Yes. Here they are:

Who'd have thought? :D
http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4430243.htm

And believe it or not they are the BEST ones that i have ever used, what is this madness? I straightened my hair with them yesterday in about 5 to 10 minutes and it looked as good as when i used to spend at least an hour doing it with my last ones.

This is a win if you ask me, i am most likely going to break them again because technology happens to crumble around me, but that is fine because they were so cheap :D and came in a couple of days. Never before has my reluctance to spend my money on expensive things been so profitable for me. This is a good day ^^

That's all i wanted to say, these Value straighteners are MORE than worth the money i spent on them, i can't believe they are not more expensive to be honest!!

So CREEPY >< SCP- Containment Breach

hahaha!

My friend at college was playing this free game on his laptop. IT WAS SO WEIRD XD
It surprised me how much it freaked him out, he's the kind of 'macho' person and is going n to join the marines, so his reaction was even more hilarious.

This is the game:
http://scpcb.wordpress.com/

Basically, you are a 'classified personnel' in this containment centre and your initial job is to part of three people to keep and eye on a euclid:
SCP-173 in containment

who acts like the Angels from Dr Who. It can only move when you are not looking at it,
(more info: http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-173 ) and you have a blink meter at the bottom left of the page showing you when you HAVE to blink.

Basically, at the beginning, something goes wrong and the power cuts out, the Creature kills the other two people in the room and you panic to leave through the door at the end of the room. I do panic by this stage because it seems as though i am easily scared by video games. oh well, it adds to the fun.

There are random Items you can pick up as you go that may help you get around, but for the most part i just run and close all the doors behind me. Otherwise i am afraid the creature might chase me XD. Here are some game features as shown on the site:

Game features:
  • Randomly generated map – every playthrough is different
  • Main focus on SCP-173 and puzzles built around it
  • Blink-meter that forces you to blink after a while
  • Items that you must use to get out of the facility…
  • …or to find out what is happening
  • Random appearances of SCP-[REDACTED] and SCP-[REDACTED]
  • Surveillance cameras and monitors that may help or harm you
  • Keter-difficulty with permadeath – if you die, your save is deleted
  • Euclid-difficulty with normal saving

It really is randomly generated, so every time you play the game the map will change, so you can't memorize it and it's always a surprise... great :P

I have only played it a little so, although there are probably many more monsters to witness, i have only encountered one other one:
SCP-106, mid emergence
This one is creepy, it has different rules surrounding it as well. You can blink, you just can't touch. Or, surprise surprise, you'll die. Sounds simple but it's not. He's so hard to get away from , i assume that's why you have a running bar as well, so quicker escape but also impaired bu your characters fitness. Damn :P
Here's more info on him too: http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-106

He does look creepy.

There are a few really annoying bits, like the area after you run away from the first Euclid there's a corridor that spurts black gas at you that you can't see through. Yeah, that's fantastic when your afraid of blinking in case the SCP finds you. Then you manage to get through the smoke (with help of the gas mask otherwise i think it hurts your eyes) it might be on the other side. Scream. Panic. Run backwards hoping you don't have to blink.

It seems as though this game doesn't actually have a purpose yet, apart from to survive, so it is potentially endless. This doesn't matter though because the game itself is so much fun to play. Your Adrenaline is high while you constantly scan the screen for a monster that threatens your life. Open a door and it might be there, look at a computer screen and it's there on the other side of the camera.
I love this game i really do and, if it ever happens, if it becomes a proper game i would SO buy it. Then waste ALL of the hours i need to revise for my exams. So worth it.

Here's a little video.

Enjoy :D

Too Beautiful.

This is such a sad but beautiful song, almost made me cry :'(


Being in an abusive relationship is never ok, if someone truly loved you then they wouldn't do that to you. How could they? how could you cause the one you love so much pain...

It reminds me of another song that covers a similar subject.



It's like an angrier version...
What is the saddest though is when this abuse is directed towards children, the innocents that just can't stand up for themselves. It breaks my heart when you hear of stories like this.


Don't forget that this happens, it's not OK and needs to be stopped.
