Re: [BOAT] Show off your new shit

Owning a house is both amazingly satisfying and continually frustrating. Even with a new house, you never know when something expensive is going to go wrong. In 15 years, I've replaced the front of mine (the stone was put on wrong and allowed water to get behind it), the A/C unit, the furnace burner, the water heater, and the washer & dryer, and the dog. And none of those were low-quality items to begin with. Except for the dog.

Warning: I'm probably rewriting this post as you read it.

The market here is a little tough to get into, so we're quite happy to be in at all. The location is good, and I think we've done ok - it's livable, comfortable, and anything we do to the property will increase the value, even doing nothing.

Re: [BOAT] Show off your new shit

My birthday was back in May. I asked people for gift cards to PetSmart so I could start a fish aquarium. My sister was instrumental in helping me set up and I got a lot of advice from my Dad as well. I started off with five zebra danios at the beginning of May, and just got five more and a couple of panda corydoras.

Naturally, right after filming and posting that, I got another decoration and rearranged a bit. Ah well.

Re: [BOAT] Show off your new shit

Very nice, dude.

Also, I kind of want a ten-minute loop of that first shot, cropped into a digital picture frame. Then I'd have my own fishies. Flat frame fishies.

Or, you could shoot an hour, and I'd double up six ten minuteses on top of each other, for six times as many fishies.

All of those fishies. I need to get more panda corys, they prefer to be in larger groups but all the store had was two, so I'll wait until they restock. I've considered getting a third species, a more colorful tetra, but tetras are harder to maintain and die more easily, so I may just keep getting more danios as well. Get some nice shoaling going on.

Vapes actually commented on the second one I did (below) saying it'd be a good loop, too. Remember when he was active on here for like a month? Damn kid, gotta yank him back in here.

About that shot - GoPro on a kitchen timer. Said timer is in the shape of a camera lens and has a flat top for the camera to rest on top of. This hodgepodge was then set atop my too-nice-for-this-setup Manfrotto tripod.

Now I want a fish tank. Very, very cool. (Also, stop making me want to play Mass Effect again, I don't got time for that.)

If/when I add another species of fish I'll do a new video to a different ME cue, just for you.

Re: [BOAT] Show off your new shit

Once upon a time, I had a Swiss Army knife. My dad bought it for me when I was around 10, back when we went fishing from time to time. It was an amazing model called Cybertool with lots of screwdriver capacities, scissors, pliers, stuff. It was a series made for computer hardware work, but it allowed you to do everything a regular SA knife could, and more. Since then it had never left me, and despite losing some of the detachable elements along the way, it held true to the saying that a Swiss Army knife lasts forever.

That is, until the shooting for my graduation film. By some misfortune it fell from my pocket, and I never found it. I was a bit heartbroken, because I always used it, had it for almost 15 years, and as you can guess, I had great emotional attachment to it.

Well, to mark the occasion of my studies being over, my mom told me to get something nice that she'd pay for. So I jumped on the occasion and decided to stop being Swiss Army knife-less. After taking a good hard look at every existing model, I realized that I had no choice but to get a Cybertool again. But better than the previous one.

Introducing my new best friend for (at least) the next 20 years.

My first knife had 34 tools, this one has 41. That wood saw does NOT fuck around, lemme tell you.

Oh yeah, and the website I ordered it from had a nice engraving option.

Basically, I'm happy. It's a little thing, but I was so used to having my MacGyver pocket toolset with me all the time, that I really felt like shit when I lost it.

Now to get a good sharpening stone to make sure my knives are always ready to cut some saucisson slices.

My name will last 20 years. My phone number and email address probably won't. I'd rather have a customized SA knife that will stay valid forever, even though I completely see the point in having a contact info in case I lose it again.

Re: [BOAT] Show off your new shit

Halo 5 edition Xbox One. Been meaning to get an XBone for a while now and seeing how pretty this one is finally made me cave. It'll be a while until I start any LPs with it, and even gaming (aside from Halo 5 itself next week), though I may test out how extensive its back category is with its faux backwards compatibility.

Edit: Oh and the LED backlighting for the TV. All sorts of effed up but it's great for a bit of extra cool factor playing different games and watching different things.
