Firstly - Steam in a bottle.

Tab has been kind enough to build me a little steam generator for the violin. It's even better than I could have imagined, and the video doesn't do it justice. My camera's not the best for filming, and unfortunately I jumped quite violently when it went off! If you want steam for any costumes, or just for an exciting household decoration, talk to Tab. It's a Good Idea.



Someone at work found this. Just watch and be amazed by the power of Extreme Sheep-Herding. You will not be disappointed.




Longleat was good, if wet. I got to hold a tarantula, finally, and a Royal Python. The tarantula was lighter than I expected, and quite soft. The snakes were adorable, very active and interested in exploring. There are also porcupines, which are much cuter than you'd expect.

Also, we've pretty much gone through most tracks on World Tour, at least in the main game. We've even unlocked Tool ($8000?!!??), though the second track almost killed me. I was in terrible pain from about half way though, something about the strumming pattern just cramped up my arm, but I couldn't stop. You don't stop the rock unless your arm falls off. Oddly enough, the third track was fine.

I've been working my way through GHIII, largely because I wanted to play Knights of Cydonia by Muse. Having found it and played it once, I think I'll stick to just listening to it. There's something particularly horrible about murdering a song you love. Also - guitar battles? What's with that. I'm quite happy to accept that Slash is a better guitarist than me, I really don't need to go though frantic guitar mastibation to prove a point.

Haha, you can see where you jumped back as it started. That gets me everytime too.

It's the walking sheep that gets me, with it's moving legs. Though the pong is awesome and lovely.

Knights of Cydonia - I know! I never heard the song before I tried to play it, but it's horrible in GHIII. Something about how they've set it up just butchers the song and the fun in playing it. I only played it once, and now avoid it forever more.

It just didn't seem right. I know I wasn't playing it well, but it still felt wrong.

I'll will just listen to it lots on my stick.

Oh man, KoC. I got stuck on that for ages, could not get near it. Then one day I just happened to hang on long enough to finish and then the next time it was easy, like actually reaching the end flipped a skill switch XD

I did the opposite with the Metallic track. I had it mostly going okay, survived the solo, then got back to a bit I should know and fell apart. Failed the song at 99%

That little steam generator is awesome. It should be interesting to see it used in the final product.

You could wear it. As part of a gratuitiously elaborate hat. All the other cosplayers will have less steam-powered hats than you. Then you can mock them for it.

See, with some of the people going, I couldn't garentee that!

No one else should have a steam powered violin though, and Joe will have a gratuitous hat. It has peacock feathers and everythinng.
