Some of the first icebergs I saw on my trip out east. It was neat to see the tall and pointy iceberg. I couldn’t help but wonder what the rest of it looked like, but I wasn’t about to go for a swim to find out. Ha! This photo gives you a better sense of scale with the boat and people for reference. I saw icebergs that were way bigger than these while I was there. I was amazed to  find out that they can take up to 3 years to make it here, floating all the way from Greenland.

C&NW 1385 and train passing the Clinton Street Tower on the elevated tracks north of North Western Station. This appears to be a relatively recent photo by the buildings in the background. The residential building on the right with many windows was previously the North American Cold Storage building, which had no windows. C&NW 1385 ran on a number of excursions in the 1980s and 1990s.

Psst…there’s a 2K sale currently happening on Steam right now! Lots of good stuff, like Civilization V, the Borderlands series, and the Bioshock trilogy are all currently discounted; so if you’ve been considering any of these games (*cough* Bioshock Infinite + Burial at Sea *cough*), now would be a great time to pick them up!

Oh, and Dishonored is 75% off and on a free weekend too; also a good game, though I still need the DLCs.

I just thought I would post a heads up for everyone, because I personally recommend these games and if you get the chance, you should try them!

Take care, all! (´・ω・`)

Okay so there’s a normal Freddy and a golden Freddy who are never seen together, plus in the tags on the steam people put Anime so I sketched a thing really quick and…

Please don’t kill me for this:




C&NW passenger trains passing the Clinton Street Tower on the elevated tracks north of North Western Station. This is a much older photo than in the previous posting. The Merchandise Mart is fully visible without being obscured by the buildings that were built later along the bank of the North Branch of the Chicago River. The building on the right was still the North American Cold Storage building with no windows. And the C&NW was still using steam locomotives for its commuter trains.

i gotta rush to work, but ho shit, someone sent me a trade offer: a skull, a strange botkiller, and a regular festive eyelander for my sister’s unusual pyro towel.

8U i-i have NEVER seen this before, i am baffled to even say “no”. i’ll just let the trade offer sit there for a bit.

So, I’m thinking about downloading the demo of Five Nights at Freddy’s, and recording my reaction for all of you.

Now, some of you may be thinking “why do we care about your reaction? you love horror!”

Well dear followers, it just so happens that I have an extremely terrible fear of animatronics….

I literally almost shat myself on the Jurassic Park ride at Universal….it’s terrible……

So, is anyone interested in watching me flip out and possibly pee myself while trying to play a game?
