Shikinami Asuka Langley (Jersey Ver.) by Alter

February 26, 2015

Assuka. Yes, that extra ‘s’ was intentional. The most asstastic Assuka figure there is. There are many figures that highlight this asspect of her, but none are so well sculpted in my opinion. This pose also manages to achieve the trifecta, face, chest, ass, all in one angle, though her jacket kind of ruins that […]

Makinami Mari Illustrious (Plug Suit Style) by Kotobukiya

December 5, 2014

My first figure review in almost two years, Makinami Mari Illustrious Plug Suit Style by Kotobukiya. This is mainly an excuse to finally unbox her due to self-imposed rules that for some reason I refuse to break and I’m tired of unopened figures strewn about my living space.

4.293: Time Lapse at Spencer Gorge Wilderness Area

October 21, 2014

The last time I was at Spencer Gorge Wilderness Area, it was a surprisingly warm day in the middle of winter. I took my motorcycle and Tsuru no Yakata’s Horo figure there for some photos. People thought I was a bit nuts riding my sport bike in the winter, but hey it was 11°C! Kind of similar this time around, except it was much warmer, not winter, and I spent hours there capturing sunset. Oh and there were leaves on the trees! I guess the only similar bit was I brought Horo again (and Alice) and rode a motorcycle.

Colorado Trip #4.6: Photo Recap + Bonus

October 10, 2014

While in Colorado I encountered a number of problems some severe, some not so much. One of those problems happened to be poor quality monitors with even worse calibration (if any). As such I spent a lot of time trying to figure out if the post-processing I’d applied actually looked good or not. Ultimately that’s subjective anyway, but never the less I’ve reprocessed the photos and added in a couple extras as well.

Colorado Trip #4.5: Time-lapse

September 6, 2014

Earlier in the week, when the weather here was nice and warmer, I hastily decided to try my hand at a sunset timelapse with Horo and Alice. And while I generally feel I failed to achieve what I intended, I learned a bunch about the process.

Colorado Trip #4.4: Weston & Guanella Pass

September 4, 2014

Yesterday was an exciting day. I once again crashed my bike, did I mention on here I crashed before my trip as well? Well if not, I did. I decided to tackle Weston Pass again, this time the hard side first. That was a mistake.

Colorado Trip #4.3: Loveland Pass

August 30, 2014

I don’t think there’s been a single time I’ve ridden over Loveland Pass and had it not rain at some point. This is mainly because by the time I end up there it’s the late afternoon when all the storms are rolling through. But I checked the weather, and there was only a 25% chance of rain, so I took the opportunity to try it out once again!
