Thursday Night Open Thread

It was a decent evening. We went to a Mexican restaurant along with our visitor from Australia, and we chowed down some delicious Mexican food, plus Tomala and I had our cocktails that we ordered. πŸ™‚ Then I dug back into some old-school Quake after we got home, plus I took this epic screenshots in-game from awhile back:

A grenade-launching chainsaw Ogre killed a Fiend in mid-air. πŸ˜›

So anyway, we lived for another day.

Saturday Evening Open Thread

It was a decent evening tonight. San_San made us some delicious chicken and zucchini this afternoon along with the sliced tomatoes:

Then I decided to dig back into some more Quake after having some Thai spaghetti that Tomala made for dinner. πŸ™‚ Oh, I found this video from the Late Show the other night where Cartoon Trump and his Toupee-izard challenge Ash Ketchum for a PokΓ©mon battle:

I extremely laughed my ass off on that Machamp-esque Robert Mueller, and his unstoppable move F.B.I. Investigation really cracked me up too. πŸ˜›

Saturday Open Thread + Some Steam Controller Fun

My Steam controller arrived a few days ago. I thought I’d give this a shot by playing some Mortal Kombat X last night after I configured the settings on it. I should probably configure the controller settings for other games like Sonic, Serious Sam and Quake. I like how it has a Gyro setting on the controller so that you can use it to turn left and right, and look up and down in-game. πŸ˜€

Now I can use it to play fun games with Tomala on the HTPC in the living room. πŸ˜€ This is an Open Thread, so feel free to post comments if you wish.

Saturday Open Thread

Today is a sucky gray day. San_San and I went into town to go see the parade this morning, and it’s a lot of fun. πŸ˜€ I got a bunch of candy so that I can share them with my family. My favorite parts of the parade are the marching bands, McGruff the Crime Dog, and people who drive really old cars from the 40’s to the 50’s. After we got home I took a 2-hour nap.

We did have delicious cheeseburgers, french fries and corn-on-the-cob for dinner this evening. That really hit the spot. After I got dinner out of the way, I went on YouTube and watched a couple of videos from the Late Show. This first video is Stephen talking about President Fuckface Von Clownstick and NATO:

Ohhhh my goodness, I died laughing at the Donald Trump book, ‘Fifty Shades of Orange’. πŸ˜› Then here’s this video where Stephen is saying strange quotes while wearing a Big Furry Hat:

I like the one quote that he said: ‘Anyone who tells me to ‘chillax,’ shall be ‘killaxed.’ I thought that was hilarious too. πŸ˜›

Afternoon Open Thread

There wasn’t much to report today. I went to do a couple of chores this afternoon because we’re gonna have a house inspection soon. First one is cleaning the kitchen floor by sweeping the crap up, washing it with a damp rag and some soap, rinsing it, and then drying it off with a towel. The other is brushing the carpets in the living room, the hallway and my bedroom so that Papa Smurf can run the vacuum and hit them with it. I hate doing chores, but they need to be done right away.

And before I go do something else, here’s a random Dorkly video that I was watching a couple days ago:

GMod Testing Open Thread

I have been doing some testing in GMod on our Sandbox server, and so far everything is in good shape. But it’s missing some of my addons such as the Invader Zim ragdolls, Mortal Kombat X characters and playermodels, etc.

Oh, I did take a few screenshots of more stuff that I got from the workshop:

Nicktoons Reunion!

Touhou characters

I used Outfitter to change from Anna to Elsa.

Outfitter is kinda like a tool where you and others can wear workshop playermodels without having to download them onto the server. That will be a lot fun! πŸ˜€ Now I can use Outfitter with Tomala and Yutram to show off various playermodels. πŸ˜›

After Dark Open Thread

Last night I went to a website called Play DOS Games Online, where you look around and find DOS games and old Windows games that you want to play, and I found an After Dark 3.2 program that has various screensavers. Here are some of them that are my favorites:

You Bet Your Head

Bad Dog!

DOS Shell

Rat Race

They’re really good screensavers and so do the others. πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, it won’t work under Windows 7 but it will if it’s running under DOSBox or a virtual machine. I was thinking about doing that one of these days.
