Anime Review: Log Horizon

An anime about people trapped in an MMO. Now where have I heard about that before?

The similarity ends here.

When two things are released in quick succession, with very similar premises, and you know that one of them was good, there are pretty much two possibilities for the other.

Log Horizon is definitely the latter of the two options.

Clockwork Gremlin plays Kerbal Space Program Part 4: The Last Horizon

Kerbal Space Program 0.23 is set for release TOMORROW(Tuesday, December 17), and it’s going to completely overhaul a few things, like how SCIENCE! works.  This will be the last update for my 0.22 LP.  Maybe the next one will go better.

Blizzard Adventure

So, I get up this morning and go to work.  It’s snowing a little, but blowing off the road easily enough.  When I get out of work five hours later, it is to the worst driving conditions of the year.  Ridiculous bad.  Awful.  Atrocious.  And so I’ve decided not to leave my house until further notice.  But what to do with my time?  The weather guys are pretty elusive on when the blizzard-like conditions are going to let up, so I have a lot of time to fill.

So, we’ve been meaning to do a craft adventure for a while and I figure this is the perfect time for it.  Milli and I have decided some time ago that it is time for us to build a cardboard city, then dress up as monsters, and then destroy said city.  We got the idea from www.somethingpositive.net (around year 2010) out of the blue one day, and have been collecting cardboard ever since to save up for our own city.  The monster costumes may be beyond our ken, but we aim to try.

And that being said, I’m going to go take a nap instead.
