Oh my gods, tonight I’ll be going out to see Dimmu Borgir. I’m unreasonably excited for this show. They’re just so fabulously cheesy!

Contest: Win one of five PAX Australia day passes!

Well, it’s that time of year again. PAX Australia -- which will once again be hosted at the Melbourne Convention Centre from October 26-28 -- is just around the corner, and thanks to the lovely folks handling PR for PAX, we’ve g...

 
 
 

I went ahead and filmed Panda sleeping for #PandaToid. I hope that's allowed. After all, Panda deserves only the comfiest of naps!


 
 
 
 

Oh, right. It's Tuesday. I guess that means I should post something metal-y! Here's the first single from the upcoming Sigh album. They're one of the more interesting black metal groups out there, so I'm pretty damn excited for it.



 
 
 

Define: Procrastination. Laying around trying to see what websites and services you can access on the web viewer on your Apple Watch. Incidentally, here's what YouTube looks like on a 44mm screen! Shame the video player doesn't work.


 
 
 

Well, I spent this afternoon fighting with WINE to get the Windows version of Steam up and running on my Mac. But it is finally done, and I can now play some completely tasteful visual novels without booting into my Windows 10 partition. Convenience!


 
 
 

Well, I'm enjoying the crap out of Spider-Man. Also, the photo mode is fun to dick around with. Like so!


 
 
 

Hey, you sexy, sexy people. We’re still getting a hell of a lot of spam comments. If you come across any, please flag it so we can easily spot and nuke it. Thanks <3!


 
 
 

Well, my laptop battery started dying on me, so I need to get that replaced. But until then, I’ve found myself doing a hell of a lot more mobile gaming. Admittedly, this is because I got into the closed iOS beta for Old School RuneScape, but still!


 
 
 

Went out to see BlacKKKlansman. It was definitely a well-made movie that was worth watching. I also picked up this:


 
 
 

So I just found out that Dimmu Borgir are touring Australia in October. I may or may not now have a ticket. Kind of unreasonably excited for this one, since oh my god it’s pure cheese and I love it.



 
 
 
 

Not quite #ArbitraryMetalTuesday, but I got myself a ticket to see Therion next month. This pleases me greatly. Yay for cheesy as hell operatic metal.



 
 
 

Well, I got 99 Prayer in Old School RuneScape. Somebody please save me. Help.


 
 
 

Well, my little friend here no longer has to wear the cone of shame, since her stitches were finally removed. She's very much enjoying her newfound freedom, and is currently adventuring. What a fine kitten.


 
 
 

Poor little kitten had to go out and be desexed today. When getting her back from the vet, I was told that she’d probably be lethargic devoid of an appetite due to the painkillers. She did not get the memo. At all.


 
 
 

Yay, this showed up in the mail today <3.


 
 
 

Well, it's now officially Tuesday where I live, so I think it's only appropriate for me to start off #ArbitraryMetalTuesday with some Dan Swanö. Synth-heavy prog/death metal is a thing that I approve of quite highly, as it were.



 
 
 

Aw, hell yeah. Two of the things I've ordered in online arrived today. Volume 3 of Devilman G (which I might have had to crop in my photo because the cover art is boobs), and the second half of Hyouka, which I had to import because licensing. Yay <3~


 
 
 
 

Welp. Found out that Sólstafir are the opening act for an Enslaved concert that I was considering buying a ticket for later this year. That's it. That's enough to make me throw my wallet at the screen. I've wanted to see them live for years, dammit.



 
 
 

We now take a break from my usual metal posting for some prog rock, instead. Seriously, this shit is excellent. Go listen to it.



 
 
 
 

Well, I just did some shopping. Picked up the Blu-Ray box set for the original Fullmetal Alchemist. It came with a goddamn 300 page art book and everything. Good god, it’s sexy. But expensive. My wallet is crying, even with a $30 discount.
