This is the National Videogame Museum in Frisco Texas.
This is one of the most incredible places I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. As you walk in, the first thing you see is a giant pong console set up waiting for you to test your skills. After you’ve had your fun and start to look around, it starts to sink in how much video game history you’re actually surrounded by.
The museum is set up in different “stages” much like a video game would be. Starting at the “time line”, you’re greeted with home consoles of all sorts with oversized controllers that let you control TV screens which display facts on each console. From there, you walk through and see numerous rarities including one of a kind prototypes, competition cartridges, and even previously lost consoles that have only recently been discovered. At the end of your self guided tour, you enter an arcade with dozens of arcade cabinets to choose from. The museum is even kind enough to give you 4 free tokens with your ticket so everyone gets to play.
The Museum is a result of 3 collectors pulling their collections together plus a few donations. It’s great that this truly one of a kind collection is available to the public.

A one shot I created out of Crys’ anon’s amazing imagination that started here, continued here, then here and ended here. I know this isn’t as amazing as Crys’ heaven sent, refined and intelligent writing, but I can’t help it, I had to take this off my mind and idk, I wanted to try writing with this plot, really interesting. Also, I’m not a pro at this genre, but I a badly want to try writing this out, since I can’t always go with the fluff. Enjoy!
“Whoever is by that door must die.”
You gritted your teeth as you
hurriedly ran out your room and head to the main door of your apartment. You
were in the middle of your nap after a stressful day in class. Who wouldn’t nap
after taking a hundred question exam that requires you for numerical solutions?
No one, and no one should mess with your precious nap because of it.
So whoever this person who made you
get out of your cosy bed will definitely get a proper beating, no excuses.
Or there is.
“What?!” your voice a little louder
than your usual.
The man in front of you could only
chuckle, and you were left by the door, looking across the wall, with uttermost
annoyance towards your friend slash the
man who will forever ruin your inner peace.
“What’s up, cereals?” he asked as you
tried to calmly close the door and walked towards him in the living room. Yup,
he just called you cereals, that is your favourite food and will you ever get
tired of it? No. It’s basically your next
staple food to rice.
“Have you even received my message?”
you asked him with your arms crossed as you stood by the couch where he is
He gave you a light smile as he
nodded, “Yeah.” And widened his eyes as if he realized his mistake, “Holy shit,
did I wake you up?”
“Jeon Jungkook and his acting.”
You clapped your hands as you slightly leaned forward and gave him a sarcastic
Jungkook is basically your definition
of I didn’t choose this life, this life
chose me. The both of you knew each other since five, where you and your
family just moved in a new house in Busan, and across that house is Jungkook’s
residence. Every afternoon ever since you moved in, both your mothers would
have an afternoon tea in your place, where Jungkook is always with his mother,
and you, well, always tugged by your mother to socialize. The moment Jungkook saw you, he never stopped pestering
you with playing with him, which is a good and a bad thing altogether. Because
one, the boy had this huge collection of Yu-gi-oh cards that you’ve been asking
your mother to buy you, second, Jungkook isn’t a bad playmate himself, but
third, he’s a kid who loves pissing you off a lot. He may be the friend who chose you rather you choosing him, but
having him as your friend
was one of the greatest thing you had.
The both of you are now in college and
are in the same university in Seoul. You were taking up finance as your major,
while Jungkook took performing arts. You knew Jungkook was born to be famous,
for his looks, and for his drive to become an actor. While you, you weren’t
really sure yourself, taking finance was your parents’ suggestion, so you hate
and not hate it for some reason.
You stared at Jungkook as you sat
beside him and purposely pulled the hair near his ears and he winced. The huge
frown on your face went back as soon as you finished laughing at him. “I told
you not to pester me during the afternoon, and just come here for dinner. Why
are you so stubborn?”
“You can always go back to sleep if
you want to.” He grinned, “You know how quiet I am.”
“Oh, really?” you raised a brow at him
and sighed you felt how sleepy you still are. You placed your palms on your
face and asked, “How was your class?” Since you really had no choice but to
entertain your everyday guest. He would always come and visit you after his
classes to talk to you or just stay in your apartment. You weren’t really
annoyed with the fact that he always visits until today, since you were really
exhausted from that exam that squeezed your brains out and you needed to take
out the stress from answering the exam.
“Oh, it was fine.” Jungkook smiled as
he looked at his friend with enthusiasm. “There’s this new girl in class,
her name is Hyena.”
hot, isn’t she?” You gave him a mischievous grin.
mouth twitched before he leaned on the couch and turned to you as he copied the
grin you had on your face, “I was supposed to tell you that she reminded me so
much you.” He said, “But yeah, she’s hot.”
what?” You said, crossing your arms against your chest again, “That we were
like twins, and she’s the attractive one that will give you boner?”
laughed at you. Since the both of you have grown up together, you grew
comfortable of speaking your minds without getting the other offended. You guys
know your way with language.
wore the same jeans I gave you on your birthday, remember that?” Jungkook said
with a groan, “Her thighs looked heavenly, I wonder why you never wore that?”
scoffed, untangling your arm as you slightly hit he back of his head, “Because
my thighs aren’t heavenly, pervert.”
on! That is the reason why I bought it for you.” Jungkook whined. “I think your
thighs are amazing, you know I had a thing for your thighs.”

You asked and you shall receive!! This is probably going to be a series so stay tuned for part 3!
AN: Thank you so much for the overwhelming support and compliments omg! Warnings: more fluff. Did you really expect no fluff from me? I also didn’t have much time to edit because I have to go to work in 30 minutes!
Though it has only been a few days since we have met, you have never left my mind’s eye. The way that your eyes light up when we touch on your favorite books leaves me breathless. The way you smile leaves me helpless. And when we touch, I feel electricity flowing through my veins. My heart longs to see you again.
While we have exchanged numerous letters to one another, would you be so kind as to allow me to see you again? I will be in town today with my mother as we need to acquire writing materials as well as food. My wish is that we could possibly meet, even if it is in secret.
I have been thinking for a while about the older artwork that Ishida did, the one with numerous hands. There are some good theories about it alredy but I am gonna throw my two cents about the matter too.
What fascinates me the most are Kaneki’s own posture and the hand that covers his mouth. As you can see if you look at the art more closely, Ken seems to be hugging himself. His expression is also a bit troubled. I think what this posture is trying to suggest is that Kaneki might, in his current position, feel uncomfortable. Maybe this is a reference to his role as the new king? With the recent chapters it seems that Kaneki is doing well in his new role, but what if he is conflicted inside? This arc seems to parallel with the Kanou’s lab raid arc, and there it also seemed like Kaneki was calm and collected about his new role. But people around him noticed that in reality he was in a point where he could break at any moment. Maybe something similar will happen this time too as Kanekk realizes how much the crown weights on his head. All of the hands might symbolize the people who he promised to take up this role and the pressure and hardships it means. Even in the recen birthday art that Ishida did about Kaneki in his king unifrom, he did not seem particulary happy.
Now, about the hand that seems to cover Kaneki’s mouth. At least I think it is, since the other one on the left seems to be his own and he seems to be leanning on to it. Many people here are speculaiting that it is very likely supposed to be Eto’s and I agree. The bandages around it is a very Eto thing and the object in her wrist could be a clock. Eto was surrounded with clocks in one scene and talked about being old, probably referring to the passing of time. Now with this in mind, I think it’s quite impotant that it’s Eto’s hand that covers Kaneki’s mouth.
I think it means that Kaneki is not speaking “himself” or expressing his own thoughts. The OEK deal was pushed by Arima but most actively by Eto. She passed on a talked about the legends of old, wrote a book about the OEK and basically asked Kaneki to become one. So by Eto’s hand covering Kaneki’s mouth, Kaneki is not expressing himself but a role wanted and written by our best selling horror author, Eto Yoshimura.
Kaneki is acting out a role where he was putten, just like the stage play he was chosen to act as a little kid.
Also, a few of Eto’ fingers seems to be bloody. This could indicate the horros she has commited or gone trough, or that by talking and acting in this new role, Kaneki has chosen(or was made to take a role that is) an bloody and violent path.
Christine Sefolosha (born 1955) is a Swiss painter. Born in Montreux, Sefolosha has created works that have been shown at numerous one person and group exhibitions, including at the Cavin Morris Gallery in New York, American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore and the Galerie Polad-Hardouin and the Halle Saint-Pierre in Paris. She lived in South Africa for nine years.
Christine is the mother of Thabo Sefolosha, member of the Atlanta Hawks basketball club and formerly of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Chicago Bulls clubs.
She founded the studio Quai 1-L'Atelier in 2000 within Montreux’ train-station waiting room
had spent a few days angry over the fact Jesse hadn’t told him about
the exchange student he was secretly seeing, but eventually let it
slide after Jesse introduced them. Hanzo was around again after the
two had finished seeing a film together, and Gabriel had taken it
upon himself to cook for the two young boys, and easily whipped them
up something to eat in a short amount of time. Hanzo was taking
numerous classes, music being one of them, and had carted his violin
around, after his lessons with his teacher, with the two of them.
He’d taken it up to Jesse’s room with some coaxing, and some
insistence from the wannabe cowboy, Jesse being desperate to hear him
play and join in with his guitar. Gabriel hummed and tugged his
sleeves up his arms as he grabbed the oven mittens and pulled the
tray of food out of the oven. Plating the food, he continued to sing
his little song, and then grabbed the two plates, ascending the
stairs towards Jesse’s room.
Row 1: his presentation in on-stage costumes seems to be getting more and more explicitly feminine as time goes on? Look at the last picture standalone. Without knowing who he is, you’d assume this was a female character, wouldn’t you?
Row 2: he does not have a flat chest, and this is explicitly highlighted in numerous shots, especially the one on the right from ep. 7. He actually rather looks like he’s wearing a compression shirt, not a binder!
There are several types of noun word formation, and today I’m going to tackle only one of them. General type. When we combine two (or more) roots of different words we get a compound word. Lighthouse, blackbird, airport are the examples. Combining more than two words is very rear in Russian, so let’s take the two-word model. The first part can be a stem of a noun, adjective, adverb or a numeral. The second one is usually a noun, an adjective or a root of the verb, which functions as a noun here and it defines what part of speech the whole word is.
But to combine words it’s not enough to just put them together. To form a compound word, we need to cut the ending of the first word if there is one and add an infix -e or -o before the second word. For example, if we take the character from the Nickelodeon cartoon CatDog, into Russian it was translated as Котопёс. Кот - cat, пёс - dog (a he-dog) and there is this little o between them that connects them.
Snowfall has the same structure in Russian. Snow - снег, fall - падать. But as we use only verb roots + we need to add an infix, a snowfall is снегопАд in Russian. Airplane is a combined word in Russian, but the logic is different. For Russians, an airplane is something that can fly itself so it consists of a word сам (oneself) and летать (to fly) - самолЁт. Ice-breaker = ice+break. Лёд+колоть = ледокОл. These were the examples of a noun-verb formation. ГромкоговорИтель (a loud speaker), тяжеловЕс (a heavy weight) are adjective-noun variants.
Where the stem of the first component ends in a soft consonant or in ж ч ш щ ц, infix is -е. Dormitory is общежИтие, that consists of общий (collective, common) and житие which is not really a word but has this “жит” root, that means live, life etc. The infix is -e because it stands after letter щ. Пулемёт (machinegun) has soft л (е makes it soft) before infix, so it’s -e. Пуля - a bullet, метать - throw, dart, shoot. As the second word is a verb, we leave only a root as with the first word (the first word is always only a root).
Some names of professions or occupations have a common root. Like a specialist in literature is литературовЕд, in cinema киновEд, where the first component is a branch of knowledge, and the second one is an old verb ведать, which is to know (but we don’t use it anymore).
More examples of compound words: пароход (пар + ходить = steamer), вертолёт (вертеть + летать = helicopter), новостройка (новый + строить = new building), мореплаватель (море + плавать = seafarer), бензобак (бензин + бак = petrol tank), нефтепровод (нефть + проводить = pipeline), книголюб (книга + любить = book lover), водопад (вода + падать = waterfall).
