I ate'nt dead. Despite my best efforts, however, when a couple of my neighbors decided it would be awesome to play music and talk at 3 AM at volumes you could probably hear two levels above and below, I was unable to set them on fire with the power of my mind alone. They didn't even have the decency to talk about or listen to anything interesting!

So I think I'm going to post some links to gorgeous fanart.

Pretties will make me feel better. )

Hokay, Squeem, here's what I could find on Youtube! For some reason a lot of the film clips have the speaking parts in French, but the songs in English. I'll provide translation where memory serves.

WARNING: Spoilers. This is also a pretty bloody movie, as well as being a bloody pretty movie from time to time. If you can't take violence on the level of, say, Kill Bill (that is, highly graphic but incredibly exaggerated), I'll recommend you skip a few of these clips.

EDIT: Frick, I forgot the opening credits! BAD NANO. Fixed now.

At last, my post is complete again! )

Also, here is a fic rec!

Rats Gone Home to Jesus

A handful of vignettes portraying various characters from Mrs. Lovett to Benjamin Barker to Johanna to those entirely unexpected. Very creepy and well-characterized.

And some arhts!

Rebirth

It took me a moment to work out just what this picture was actually about, and then I went, "Ooh," which is always a sign of quality. Now I'm surprised nobody else has done something like this.

And there's this series of pictures, which are sort of halfway between cute and disturbing.

Enjoy! And now I MUST GO PACK AUGH

it hurts

So it's pretty much a given now that I like snarky thieves, right?

I have finally found what was missing from my previous love, and it is this:

Snarky thieves, snappily dressed, in awesome hats. With grappling hook umbrellas.*

Now you people are going to play the Chzo Mythos games and you are going to like them. (Unless you don't like gore or mindscrew or adventure games or anything like that.) Trust me. They're free and only a couple of megabytes each, and if you're that much of a fraidy-cat there's walkthroughs for all of them online.

5 Days A Stranger: Trilby climbs over the wrong windowsill and into a deathtrap, with four other people. Someone among them is a murderer, but not quite in the way they expect.

7 Days A Skeptic: Almost four hundred years later, there's a spaceship. And the spaceship finds a box that should never be opened. Which is all fine and dandy, until somebody opens it.

Trilby's Notes: Wherever he goes, trouble follows, and the hotel is obviously trouble to begin with. It adds up to a great stinking load of trouble, along with hallucinations, pill-popping, druidic ritual and other wasteful habits.

6 Days A Sacrifice: It all comes together in more ways than one.

*Hah hah, just kidding, Garrett till occupies a disturbingly large part of my headspace. It's just he has to share with a fastidiously-dressed green-eyed gentleman thief who made the unfortunate error of breaking into the wrong house.

I wonder if I can make them fight.

I'm broke! I'd almost forgotten what that was like. I'm tempted to adopt an impression of someone elderly, shake my fist, and complain about all them yougin' bahstids comin' here and stealin' our jobs. It may help dissuade me from buying the Heroes Season One DVD box set next payday.

In lieu of actual content, I think I'll link to things. Most of them will have to do with gaming, and LGS-related gaming at that, but I'll try to make them as interesting as possible for those who do not, in fact, care.

Ready?

Right!

The Illuminated Ones

An interview with Jordan Thomas, who created Robbing the Cradle and far-and-away my favourite level of Bioshock. He talks about light, how important it is, and the various techniques he uses in his work. You may find it deadly boring; I found it fascinating.

Free Radical - By Shamus Young

So, how many times have you visited ff.net and rolled your eyes at the latest 'novalization' of your favourite game? They tend to suck, right?

Here's one that doesn't. It's based on the original System Shock, though it expands quite a bit upon the story and has a very different ending. It could be a reasonably good quality cyber-punk novel with interesting text effects (alas the audio links are long-dead), and even has a few moments that made me giggle (along with one moment that I thought was awesomely cool). It is, for the most part, very well thought out. If you're looking for someway to waste time, there are worse places.

The Complex and Terrifying Reality of Star Wars Fandom

It's funny because it's true.

Zero Punctuation

A British guy who lives in Australia reviews games very fast into a microphone while little photoshopped images flash up to facilitate his explanations. Cruel and hilarious. I even like the Bioshock review, dedicated LGS apologist that I am.

And finally, from my favourite game journalist...

Brain Pies!

I don't know.

*kicks internet connection in the head* I! Want! To! Upload! Gay! Rrrr. I'm not sure if it's because the connection sucks or because my brother is on in the other room doing whatever the hell it is he does on the internet, but it keeps randomly disconnecting and telling me things don't exist. Which is a problem when you're trying to upload Guilt Is A Useless Emotion. I'm sorry, Squeem and anyone else who might possibly want that song! I'll have to try it some other time when the wireless is not being a sillyface.

On a less infuriated note, man do I love the music from The Overlook Manse, in T:DS. That whole mission is probably my favourite out of all the ones I've played. It's got such a unique mood. Like a tragic play or something. It makes me want to make a music post about Music What Is Sad And/Or Spooky And/Or Makes Me Space Out.

Also, forget my recapping of the plot of the first two Thief games: this is how it really happened and I will completely ignore anyone who tells me different.

I am working on the second installment of My Adventures In Vietnam but the aforementioned connection silliness is messing with my photos. Damn my brother. I'm sure this is somehow his fault.

Baco! Here are the recs I mentioned!

Most of them are for fandoms that aren't Final Fantasy, though. Is that all right? )

I have more, but I'm going to have to relocate the links. I hope this helps!

EDIT: Yaaaay! The connektshin appears to be co-operating!

SQUEEM. Here it is. Guilt Is A Useless Emotion - New Order

IT IS TIME FOR RECS!

YAY, RECS! )

And also a Music Post!

YAY, MUSIC POST! )

...Man, I'm a html NINJA. I ninje away into the...daylight. But still. NINJA.
