Let it be said here that my friend Meredith has good ideas. A few weeks ago, one of her ideas was to mod some My Little Ponies, and ever since she mentioned the idea, the tiny wheels in my brain have been turning.
I still have most of the My Little Ponies from when I was a kid. Even that one that the dog chewed up that time. And it was that sad, chewed-up pony that I decided would be perfect to turn into Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite.
Here’s what I did.
First! I removed her mane. (Her tail was already long gone.)
Then! I made her hair, skirt, and choker using polymer clay.
After that! I baked the whole mess at 175 degrees for 40 minutes.
And finally! I painted my wee Liz pony.
I’m doing Songbird next. Stay tuned.
Over the past week, two different people, who I believe are not part of a conspiracy of asking me eerily similar things, mentioned “not really enjoying shooters” but wanted to know more about BioShock Infinite and other shooting games.

The other night I killed the quarians. All of them. If you go looking for quarians, you won’t find anybody, just an empty patch of space.
The Mass Effect universe is filled with big decisions. Who to put in charge of things. Who to trust, who not to trust. When to hold ‘em. When to fold ‘em. When to walk away, and when to run. You know… But until I destroyed the quarians, I never felt like my decisions made that big of a difference. I was just going with it. Continue reading
Hey, I have a really great idea for a movie, and I’m looking for some producers to help get it off the ground. So, let me know if you want to invest. It’s like this. I wrote a script based on the LEGO Lord of the Rings video game. I know, right? It’s all of the action and drama of Lord of the Rings, but it’s LEGO guys. So, it’s like the game, except it’s a movie, so all you need to do is just sit there and watch the LEGO action, rather than interacting with it. Doesn’t that sound like something you want to pay $13 to watch while you eat a $7 tub of popcorn? I posted a tiny excerpt below. Continue reading
I recently came across this glorious Tumblr: http://simsgonewrong.tumblr.com/
It reminded me of the time my Sim, Elena Buttface, went into labor but refused to go to the hospital because she didn’t want to stop playing video games and slowly pooped herself to death.
When it comes to console gaming, there is one thing that doesn’t get a lot of credit… Continue reading
