Thing a Week 7: Reviews

Thing a Week 7: Reviews

For this week of Thing a Week, I have posted a review of Dying Light by Techland, and Soul Veggies – a nerdcore album by Mega Ran and Storyville.

In addition, since the bi-annual Copenhagen Burlesque party is this weekend, I thought I’d share a project I completed a few years back. I present to you my red LED goggles on a top hat:

Soul Veggies review

Soul Veggies review

A few weeks back, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a review copy of Soul Veggies, the collaborative album from rappers Random (AKA Mega Ran) and Storyville. Since then, the album has been my constant companion whenever I’ve had the option of listening to music.

Thing a Week 6: Duct tape holster.

Thing a Week 6: Duct tape holster.

For this week’s Thing a Week, I’m getting ready to go to the bi-annual Copenhagen Burlesque party.

This event requires a costume to get in. This year, I have decided to go with a mix of previous costumes to create a Steampunk Huntsman costume. To this end, I am getting a plastic axe to modify to go with my costume.

The first time I went to the Copenhagen Burlesque in a steampunk getup, I painted a Nerf gun (the Maverick model) to fit in with the aesthetic.

Even though my main accessory will be the axe, I still want to bring the gun.

I’ve made a rough holster for the gun out of black duct tape. At the moment, it still needs some fixin’ – at least if I want to be able to draw the gun easily.

The final big change to the holster will be a strap that runs through the holster, and around my thigh to hold the gun in place. I have decided to wait with that until when I am actually putting on my costume, though.

I am also finishing up my first video game review for the website – I’m reviewing Dying Light! I am mostly done with the text, and am currently editing together a video, so people have their choice of reading the review, or listening to it.

Thing a Week 4 slash 5: Revenge of the Site Updates™

So, I missed my Thing a Week last week. Things were busy, and having one of my girlfriend’s friends crashing with us wasn’t really conducive to making nerdy things.

I’m still working on the horror’fied Lego figures from a previous Thing a Week, and if all goes well I’ll be able to post an update on them in the next few days. It’s not really helpful that this week and the next 1-2 weeks are some of the busiest at my work, either.

I am trying to do stuff, though. Some of it I can tell you about, some of it will have to stay under wraps for a bit yet.

First off, I’m trying to set up a useful RSS feed to follow gaming and nerdy news so I can get on a regular schedule of blogging about that. Next up, I am currently playing Dying Light on the PC. I will be posting a review of that in the near future!

I have another review on the way, but I cannot say anything about it until a specific date in a couple of weeks’ time.

Lastly, I am still working on my D&D 5e campaign (I finally managed to snag myself a copy of the new Monster Manual). Due to my fellow Nerd Essentials members being in the campaign, I won’t mention specifics…But I am currently in the process of drawing up a world map for the campaign, and doing some world building. I hope to be able to post about that in the near future, as well.
