My friend Troia sent me this pic a couple days ago. No idea where it's from. Think she was being sarcastic? Naahhh...
Saw Man of Steel
Sunday night. 6/10 would not bang. It had some good ideas, but the execution was poor, the editing choppy, and it was visually bland - like someone lowered the color saturation of the movie by about 50%. And, of course, the plot holes and the casual indifference he seems to have toward "collateral damage"...
Had some fun last week finally
getting around to making a collar inspired by Gaige's from Borderlands 2
. Despite my nerdiness, I frequent and sometimes DJ industrial club nights, so coming up with edgy but geeky
stuff to wear is kinda fun. The easiest way to make one is to buy a spiked collar with spikes that are easy to remove (many just screw in). That way it's easy to expand the existing holes to make room for the nuts and bolts, which are only a few bucks at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. Anyway, here ya go. Looks much cooler on, as it gets rid of the kinks:
