@TheJGG Yeah, sadly enough that's very true. And what bothers me the most, is that I simply KNOW that he's not a bad person, but for some reason, he still lacks the manners, etiquette or presence of mind to respond in kind or at least acknowledge certain comments directed at him. To me, that's highly impolite and sometimes borders on insulting. Oh, well. I guess that once every blue Monday, I'll probably fall for it again, because I always like to believe that people can and will do better with time. Glass half full and all that. There's no other way to live for me, considering my own past troubles.

As for your broken off staple conundrum: I see you already solved it, so I don't need to tell you anymore to use a mini-vac on the pinhole...

@Sunsy You're welcome. Hope you enjoyed your day. And the games, of course.

Today I had little free time and did another boss design. Nuzadin, the Master Genie. He is the guardian of the Vault in the Castle Treasury area. He can't be harmed and his lamp as well. The player must trick him into destroying his own lamp and after that phase the real fight begins!

His design is like a traditional genie from Disney but his appearance will change into sinister demon stuff during the fight!

The process design as well. It was pretty quick! - https://youtu.be/DfuF1BRq4Fw

@Eel No it’s not just you, for me it happens too when I tap the reply button on mobile.

@ThanosReXXX Well said. Anti’s a well meaning person but.. I’m not gonna repeat your words.

Sometimes I fall victim to that as well, thinking people can change easily, they most certainly don’t.

@Zuljaras I’ll now end up stalking you on YouTube even your creative process is inspiring. It won’t draw for me though, my drawing skills are atrocious. I’m much better in graphic design, I’ve done tons of stuff since last year.

Coming up with these ideas though is just awesome. I can’t say anything other than, be proud of what you’ve done and keep on!

@Zuljaras I'm liking the idea, and the upper body part looks interesting, but the rest feels, for lack of a better word, unfinished, or of lower quality. I gotta tell you that I almost feel guilty saying that, seeing as I'm usually so positive about your efforts, but on the other hand, I'd rather give you my honest thoughts than just tell you what I think you might want to hear. Hope you're okay with that.

On a side note: perhaps just slightly more realistic clouds of smoke would be better than those "Windwaker-like" swirls?

@TheJGG Well, it's not that people can't, it's just that some of them won't, for whatever reason. Sometimes, I also think that we need to factor in origins: Western people think and express themselves differently than people from other regions, something I'm sure you've got plenty of experience with, considering your current whereabouts.

P.S.

Too bad you weren't around a year or two earlier, otherwise you would have been able to see some of his earlier sculptures, which were also pretty good already. He did a Sandshrew for example, which was near perfect. Do you still happen to have some pictures of that particular one, @Zuljaras?

@ThanosReXXX It was a good day. Just mostly played the new games, decided to watch Smurfs: The Lost Village and ordered pizza. I'd say it was a good day.

@ThanosReXXX Hey ofc I want honest opinions! And I welcome criticism in all forms! For example I know that the lower part is s**t because I rushed it and I have no problem with you telling me that.

As for Sandshrew I still have him here on top of a wardrobe

Not sure if I saw all of those whenever you posted them originally, @Zuljaras .... I remember some but perhaps missed previous ones! They all look pretty good, although I'm hardly any sort of expert

@Anti-Matter I think you're either reading/focusing on the wrong parts of the comments or you're simply not used to constructive criticism, which is actually meant to help improve mutual communication. There's no hate, just maybe a bit of annoyance and/or some wondering about why you sometimes don't reply when people clearly address you.

The proper and decent thing to do, even if you don't agree, is to at least reply and let people know that you've read their comments. They take time to think about these comments and to type them, so the least you could do is reply. If you don't react or reply, then that means that people will have to make up reasons for you or to fill in the blanks/think of the reason why you wouldn't want to, which in most cases is to form an opinion that you apparently don't like or can't handle criticism, and as such you choose to stay silent or to sometimes even ignore people, where the better thing to do would be to speak for yourself, so that we can hear straight from you, instead of us having to make up some theory about why you haven't reacted.

Life isn't always nice, and people are sometimes critical of each other, and you really need to learn to be able to handle that without getting too sensitive about it, because 9 out of 10 times, people actually mean well by it, trying to get to know each other better and to point out things to improve communication.

Either way, no hate here, so sleep easy.

@ThanosReXXX
Good morning. 😀
I'm eating my breakfast right now before go to school.
Btw, sometimes i'm afraid to reply you as when i try to talk about my interest or explaining something, you might be turned off as you have very different interest.
Usually i replied back the users if we have engaged in conversations, but sometimes after i explained something, some of them just silence whether they were not interested to continue the conversation further or my interest are not something interesting for them and it just like disconnected to continue the conversations.

Oh, yesterday i was really sad when i got news from my friends about my favorite DDR machine DDR A20 got removed from my local game arcade due to a lot of reasons. I know in Surabaya my hometown, Surabaya peoples have less interest with DDR and old BEMANI games, very contrary with Bandung and Jakarta peoples that still have some hype about BEMANI games at Arcade. As years passed by, i have to ready to accept some unpleasant changes including the removal of my favorite things from my life. That's why i started to build my Arcade at home games from BEMANI PS2 + PS1 games, XBOX 360 Kinect games and some of Wii games.
Sorry for late reply.
I have to prepare my bag before go to school.

@Sunsy That's awesome to hear. I've looked at some reviews on YouTube (from guys like SomecallmeJohnny and AntDude) and yeah, it looks amazing. I'm happy to see there's a new Crash game that's more like the PS1 classics as well!

@Eel I like Picross quite a bit too, including the one on the SNES app. It's a nice game to chill out with.

Yup, it's a great game to have when you want to distract yourself for a little while. And that one has that retro charm to it, too.

Also, now that I remember, My Nintendo has the exclusive Twilight Princess Picross game. I wonder how long does that have until they decide to remove 3DS rewards entirely.

@Eel Psh. Who needs a score counter in Snake? It's fun enough just to see how long the creature can get before it crashes!

On the reply fiasco: That happens to me too on occasion. Not enough to trigger my OCD...yet.

@TheJGG I'm very glad I ate supper before reading about the burger stand. XD I love burgers, though I intentionally try to stick with one patty and only eat them as an occasional treat. That double jack slider sounds heavenly, but I'd probably be in the same shape as you after eating one. XD I'd want to hibernate for an hour or two.

Typically my patience relates to my mood and what I'm doing at the time. If I'm in a hurry, sleep-deprived, or REALLY don't want to be where I am, I certainly have less of it. For example, though it must be done, I have very little patience for shopping outside of a really cool game store or bookstore. I prefer to just get in, grab what I need, and get out. My sympathies on the pulled leg muscles; that is NOT fun. I sometimes do that while exercising or sometimes activate a Charlie Horse when I'm half-asleep.

Grandma will still do a bit of local running. However, legally and preferentially speaking, she won't be going long distance anytime soon. Partially due to the fact that she can't stand to be in a vehicle very long anymore. Even the smoothest ride seems to cause her some discomfort. We used to take her to a restaurant she enjoys on Mother's Day every year that's about half an hour away, but she asked not to go a couple years ago due to the trip length.

The teenage stroke survivor was involved in a severe car accident; he wasn't impaired in any way, he was on his way to school and was pulled by some loose rock into the guardrail of a small bridge. I'll spare you the finer points, but he sustained some severe injuries and lost a lot of blood (hence the stroke). His right leg sustained the worst of it; they had to amputate it from below the knee down. Still much better than what could've happened. It's been just over a year. He's doing well and is still undergoing rehab.

I tend to avoid politics in most settings other than with some members of my immediate family. I very rarely discuss them with sources outside of family, but that bubble is very small and is with people I trust, or who at least will listen with an open mind. Politics, in my opinion, only seems to divide people who would otherwise get along most of the time. At least here in the US, with two powerful parties on opposite sides of the spectrum, it seems like it's either/or with little room for an in-between. I think social media and misinformation is making the division worse (on both sides of the aisle) than it really is.

Wonderful photos! I need to get into the habit of taking scenic photos around here again, now that I'm venturing out more for work. I'd definitely need to cover up with protective clothing and sunscreen if I were to ever visit the Middle East or anywhere close to the Equator though. XD

...I suppose in a sense, influencers are artists. I agree with you on trying to sell your life as perfect; nothing in this world is perfect. Stuff like that is clearly a front and is why I'm not one for much small talk; it feels like I'm wearing a theater mask (the grinning one), going through well-rehearsed and adapted to pleasantries without expressing the real me. I also dislike social media; if it isn't sanitized, it's polarized. I do have Facebook, but barely use it outside of Messenger. My parents don't have the best reception at their home, so sometimes it's easier to communicate with them that way. A couple of groups I'm in also use it to coordinate events, and it is sometimes the only way I'm even connected with people. The only other popular social media platform I have an account for is LinkedIn, but that was mainly to get my name out there when I was job searching a few years ago. The first part of this paragraph reminds me of "Perfect Life" by Red. XD

I tend to recommend mid-range PCs and laptops the majority of the time. I tell people never to go with the cheapest option since there's often a reason why that's the case lol. I don't mind giving computer advice and going crazy over specs on occasion. I'd like to try building my own PC eventually, but I don't have a huge need yet. Besides, GPUs are insanely expensive right now....

You reminded me of another song! "White Rabbit" by Egypt Central. I'm late as well, so we're even!

I was admittedly never that interested in racing games other than in passing, though there are a couple of arcade racers I enjoy (California Speed and Hydro Thunder). With Nintendo consoles, I missed out on the N64 and GameCube. As for handhelds, I never really delved into the series on those either lol. That said, I do like dipping into the occasional race or two in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe if I'm in the mood. I don't play it for hours on end however, nor do I participate in online play. Not sure if my blood pressure could take it lol.

I will tell grandma she has received more b-day wishes from the internet. Thanks! ^_^

@ThanosReXXX I've been on ferries, a cruise ship, and riverboat replicas, but I don't believe I've ever been on an actual one. While I'd be curious to go on this particular one just to say I've been, I'm not as sold on the casino aspect. XD

On Mario Kart: I've only properly played two MKs: the original on the SNES (Well, on my SNES Classic and the 3DS VC) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I've at least touched Mario Kart Wii, but only in passing. No N64 or GCN access back in the day, though I admittedly have less of an excuse when it comes to the handheld entries. I haven't played any of those at all. I opted to jump straight to MK8D when I decided to give the series a proper chance as I've been told it's the best one.

@Sunsy Hope it was a good one! Play those games until you beat them!

@Anti-Matter I just wanted to mention that I enjoyed those pictures of the abandoned building a page or so back. I like photos like that; nature taking over civilization! There are actually people out there who document abandoned buildings, vehicles, theme parks, and other objects with photography.

There's actually a state park here that contains an old, abandoned observatory that a university's Department of Astronomy once used. It closed in the early 1980s after operating for about twelve years. I intend to hike to where it is at some point, but the site is a decent drive from where I live.

@Tyranexx
Ah, i see.
Btw, how could the wild plants grew so quickly when the building being abandoned ?
I oftenly see the weeds grow taller and quickly taking up the path within 6 months.
Also, i noticed there is always like wild tree plant started to grow on abandoned buildings. Within 1 year, the small wild tree become a tall tree.

And here i took a photo of turkey birds that i found near of my school neighborhood. It was an unusual situation for me to see turkeys walking around the house complex and eating wild grasses. Turkeys are never founded in my country unless if someone just let them swarming around on the street.

Ahhh... my phone's finally been upgraded. My old phone, an iPhone 7, has been losing significant battery performance, despite the battery itself being fine. It's began to bulge in the middle, making the screen pop out. I got a second-hand iPhone X instead; and despite that seemingly like an illogical choice the battery performance is just fine. They're generally not that good on Apple products so... that's life.

Untitled

Now I'll be able to go out without lugging a battery bank around like a backpack. The camera's pretty darn good on this thing too, you can make out all the small blemishes on the medals. Can't wait to develop my photography skills.
