Ah, VHS, the technology that will never die in the hearts of kids growing up in the 80s and 90s. Early Sunday mornings, waking up to see He-Man, playing videogames … all that good nostalgia. It was easy to dream of playing games that looked like our favorite animated shows, looking at game adverts and projecting all those cool illustrations onto crude ZX Spectrum and C64 pixels. It was all the same in a 10-year-old’s eyes.

Narita Boy feels like all of those feelings compressed into one, and it’s even more powerful in motion:

It’s just a concept for now, but it’ll become reality by the end of 2018 (or well, you know, sometimes after that) since it’s been successfully funded on Kickstarter. 

There’s still time to get in on the action though, this being the last day of the campaign and all. Go check it out here.

Tumblr Staff needs to address Spammers for Creators

If #tumblr #staff can stop people from sending you links in questions then #tumblrstaff can stop people and bots from adding links to your creative content. It pisses me off when someone adds a porn link or any link for that matter in a effort to detract from your work.There is never a good reason to add a link on someone’s work. This issue needs to be resolved quickly. Stop making new freaking stickers and work on the issues that people want resolved. People do not have time to file grievances against these spammers and bots.
No one should be able to add links on content that they are did not originally post. PERIOD.

Happy 30th Anniversary, Final Fantasy

I may or may not have a little piece to post sometime today. I’m working on it now. If I don’t finish it today, I’ll put it up sometime this coming week. 

Here’s to the game that started it all, without which none of us, whatever our favorite title, would be here celebrating. If Final Fantasy, in any of its many forms, has changed or otherwise affected your life for the better, take a moment to remember the original, even if you’ve never played it. 

Open call: what has Final Fantasy meant to you, and which ones affected you the most?

A few things I am thankful for on this fine Saturday:

Dracaena Lemon Lime (Dracaena Deremensis

aka Snake Plant, unofficially. A new species I haven’t featured yet on my blog before!

I first bought this from Kroger, both crammed into one single pot. After I brought them home, they initially were really struggling and dying down and I wasn’t very happy with my purchase. It was hard to love a plant that was gaining streaks of brown and dying away and refusing to grow.

However, over time one of them recovered and has been growing more and more new leaves! The second one (in the top photo) has been recovering a little more slowly but it has stopped dying so that’s something! This species is so sensitive to change that it’s taking a while for it to get used to the new place with new light sources.

Hope you guys enjoy this new species!
