After seeing the full set of HOU, I must say that it looks like a great set. One thing that I did notice about it is that the set seems to have an unusually low creature count at rare for a modern small set. It has 15 creatures at rare and 27 noncreatures. AER has 20 creatures and 22 noncreatures at rare, EMM has 30 creatures and 17 non creatures at rare, and OGW has 24 creatures and 18 noncreatures. I know this doesn't really matter, but any insight as to why HOU's ratio is so skewed?

Destruction requires more noncreature slots.


Episodes 19 to 22 with Moemai! I rarely play anymore so I can’t post those very often, uh! Every time I find a cool outfit for her the game force me to buy new stuff, how annoying is that

Rare Snowfall Blankets Dunes in The Sahara
An amateur photographer in Algeria captured beautiful images of a rare phenomenon this week: the red and white swirl of snow dusting sand dunes in the Sahara.

On Monday, a rare and beautiful thing happened: There was a dusting of snow on the red sand dunes of the Sahara.

The snow fell on the northern Algerian town of Ain Sefra, which is known as the “gateway to the desert.”

Karim Bouchetata, an amateur photographer there, grabbed his camera and took a number of photos before the snow melted later that day. He uploaded them to Facebook, where the surreal images quickly went viral.

Sandy Story: I found my sandygast (Thank you Mod), and it was level 22. I gave it a rare candy and added it to my party. Thing is, I was about to go into the Lusalego fight. I gave it rare candy after rare candy, and trained it. It was level 37 by the time I got there. My Decidueye Arro Dyna was level 53 by now, and my Ninetails was 51. So it was vastly underleveled for the time. ... The Sand swept Lusamine's Bewear. My level 37 sand beat a level 50 bear.

Soon all will know the true power of Sandygast..

super rare interview

Layne Staley made a phone call to Rockline on June 22, 1998, when his Alice In Chains bandmate Jerry Cantrell was the guest.  

Host: We have a call right now from somebody I believe you know, Jerry. This is Layne Staley from Alice In Chains. Layne, how are you tonight?

Jerry: Blanche!

Layne: Doin’ good! Hey, what was the words to that song? “brown stainer”?? What is that?

Jerry: Yeah, thats right!

Layne: I like that one!

Jerry: How ya doin’, man?

Layne: Alright!

Host: Hey Layne, where are you tonight? Where ya callin’ us from?

Layne: Um, I’m callin’ from my home, in Seattle.

Host: Oh you’re up in Seattle, oh ok. Alright, now what was the nickname you used there, Jerry? Blanche?

Jerry: Blanche.

Layne: Oh, Blanche.

Host: Now Layne, is that a cool thing or not?

Layne: What’s that?

Host: Is that a cool thing for him to call you that or not?

Layne: Uh, I guess…I..I don’t even recognize when he calls me Layne anymore, so…Blanche is it! That sticks!

Host: Oh man…

Jerry: He used to call me “Satan Hoof” along with many other things.

Layne: Satan Hoof, yeah.

Jerry: That still sticks. I’m sitting here with my shoes off. It’s pretty bad, too.

Layne: Then you guys know what Satan Hoof is.

Host: Well, this might be a good thing that I’m in Los Angeles, and Layne’s in Seattle, and Jerry’s in Cantrell..ah, Jerry Cantrell is in New York…

Layne: Jerry in Cantrell…

Host: Cuz Jerry’s got his shoes off. We might be luckin’ out, Layne, we might be on the better end of things here.

Layne: I think so!

Jerry: I think you are!

Host: Lemme ask Layne very quickly here…what’s goin’ on with you? What’s up with you these days, Layne?

Layne: (in a joking tone) A bunch of stuff! Yeah, huge things, yeah. (normal tone).  Um, nothing right now.

Host: But it’s a really BIG nothin’! Really gigantic nothin’. Have you heard Jerry’s album?

Layne: Yeah, mm-hmm.

Host: (with these loud chomping noises in the background) Okay, be honest, do the review while Jerry mixes his Corn Nuts together or whatever he’s doin’ back there in New York City. What is that, Jerry?

Jerry: I’m just chewin’ on some ice.

Host: Chewin’ on, ah, chewin’ on ice, okay. What do you think of the album…

Jerry: Actually, I don’t wanna tell you what I’m REALLY chewin’ on…

Host: Yeah, okay, yeah, we’ll just pass on that. I’ve never heard him make that kind of noise before. Yeah, uh…what do you think of the album, Layne?

Layne: I love it. I mean, you know, it’s Jerry. It’s um..you know, I’m used to the sound and it sounds like Jerry and I’ve always loved Jerry’s songs, you know, so…I like it.

Host: Thanks for callin’ and thanks for being on tonight. And good luck with whatever it is that you’re up to these days.

Layne: Oh, you’ll hear about it REAL soon.

Host: I have a feeling we will. Hey Blanche, you’re welcome on Rockline any time, too.

Layne: Alright, thanks!

we all think that life is gonna take us till we’re 85 with a husband/wife and grandkids galore. but life holds no mercy. situations come without any warning. we can be 22, slammed by a rare form of cancer that has no survival rate. you never know. hold the ones you love extra tight, everyday. live like today is your last day because we really don’t have tomorrow promised.
