On This Day In The Life Of Elvis

(photo info at the end of post)

January 03, 1956 Elvis performed at the Von Theater, Booneville, Mississippi at 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. Elvis was advertised as “The Folk Music Fireball.”

January 03, 1964 Elvis went shopping for clothes at Lansky’s.

January 03, 1967 For a little while now horses were very popular with Elvis and the boys. They only rent out the Memphian for movies four times this month. Almost everything had to do with horseback riding these days. During the next 2 weeks Elvis would not only purchase his own favorite horse, which he renamed in Rising Sun, but he also bought a horse for his father.

January 03, 1968 Elvis complained to RCA about the mastering of his new single Guitar Man. According to Elvis the sound was different than the sound he had achieved in the studio, where his voice was more integrated with the band.

January 03, 1970 Elvis spent over $3,900 to remodel 2 rooms and a bathroom in the basement of Graceland to be used as an apartment for Charlie Hodge.

January 03, 1974 Due to a toothache Elvis went to the dentist.

January 03, 1977 Elvis flew Ginger and her family to Harrison, Arkansas, to attend the funeral of Ginger’s grandfather.

So I’m this close to dropping Lost Light but if I stick it out here’s how I want them to find the Knights.

Step 1: remodel Luna-2 into a new Rodpod
Step 2: have Rodimus draw the map again
Step 3: use Censere’s time travel tech to stay a step ahead of Getaway at every turn
Step 4: park the new Rodpod in plain view where Getaway can’t help but notice it when they find the Knights
Step 5: teleport his crew and the Knights to Cybertron before Getaway actually gets to them and make his entire journey a colossal waste of time and energy


Queue-ing this one up because PlumbBob knows when I’ll be able to upload it if not! Belladonna Cove Public Library, my entry for the Totally Maxis Community Lot Remodel Challenge

Before pictures on the left, after pictures on the right, and some interior extras.

I always loved the concept of this lot, but thought that there was still room for improvement. The exterior got some subtle changes and I kept the feel of the original the best I could, and the interior… well, the restrooms are still there xD Really, they could have just called it a bookshop instead of a library and it’d be still on point.

Got rid of the “secret room” (because if it has wall-length windows that can be seen through by the entrance area then it’s not so secret) and added more space for books and sitting areas, also added some computers on the other side, for research, and a front desk for a librarian? The chess tables and even more bookshelves are now at the brand new 1st floor, along with a nice seating area with some armchairs and plants.

Don’t ask me why the social bunny bust, but yeah, social bunny bust :P

Things I want to see in a new Animal Crossing game:

1.) Easier remodeling (like in HHD)

2.) Gender/name changer in-game

3.) less gendered things (like sabel can’t say ‘oh that’s from our men’s department but ig it’d look ok on you’. Idk i feel like it would upset some people and I just want everyone to enjoy ac ya know?)

4.) new villagers (maybe some of the rejects?)

5.) Couple villagers maybe? OR siblings/friends! (with some m/m, w/w, and nb/nb relationships of course)

6.) longer spaces for greetings/sayings

7.) being able to be gone for longer than a day w/o your villagers all moving away

8.) and on that note, villagers won’t leave until they talk to you first (maybe?)

9.) more QR space

10.) shelves that can be used as storage (like a closet)

11.) Maybe on mainstreet there’s an apartment where all the workers live after the stores close? (give Isabel a house dangit)

12.) The ability to grow all super fruit even if it’s not the native fruit

13.) Ability to go visit old villagers (outside of just seeing them on mainstreet)

14.) more public works projects

15.) Maybe a mini game where after you help Gulliver, he takes you to the place he was traveling to and you can do fun stuff there?

that’s all I can think of right now but yeah! 


Totally Maxis Residential Remodel Challenge

244 Hillside Pass Road- Desiderata Valley

This is my second lot remodel for the Totally Maxis November Challenge- there is something very satisfying about taking a not-so-attractive Maxis lot and making it into something pretty for your Sims.

This Maxis lot caught my attention because I liked the lot size and thought the front porch with the overhang was nice- I kept it and expanded it to the side of the building also. I knocked down all the interior walls and set up new rooms- good sized living room, combo kitchen and dining room, bedroom, bathroom and a spare room which is set up as an exercise/dance room, but could easily become a nursery down the line.
