I want this rug
It's in the clearance area of Urban outfitters. I just don't know if I want to spend $100 on a rug.. even if it's a super awesome rug.
Oh as I write this B gives me the thumbs up on it. OK now I need to buy it cause it's so full of awesome.
I think my favorite part of adulthood is the accumulation of nice stuff. I'm hoping by the time I'm 30, my apartment (soon to be condo) will be fancy and awesome... just I can only buy one part of it at a time.
I've only recently thrown out the milk crates and beanbag chairs.

Last October I got it in my head that I wanted deer parts. I started some and I didn't like them. I used the antlers from that initial try in Hunting season.
Then I wandered around with Fade looking for deer parts recently but I didn't like anything I found. After a day of searching I figured it would be easier to make them, so I started making them again from scratch. Untextured I didn't like them. I was like meeeeeeeeeeeh.
But then this weekend I popped on that posing stand that had the ears to work on a bag and I was like heeey wait, these sculpts aren't too bad. And I proceeded to procrastinate finishing my bag by finishing the deer parts.
Long boring story. Yes. I know.
These have some animation, but not a lot. Click the ear and it twitches, type and they wiggle, do /32 sadears and they go sad. The tail just wiggles.
They come in 3 colors and they are L$250 a color (includes ears, tail & antlers).

XD is basically Barista without the hat combined with my RL hair on my head right now... just maybe a little shorter and thinner. I has a lot of hair.
I'm never taking this off my little pixel head.
It's called XD because I wanted to name it after something to do with me IRL and my position at work is as an XD. Which is a stupid abbreviation for Experience Design. Also I drive a Scion XD. And XD is the emote I use the most when talking to Bill while we are at work.

The Penthouse in a mag
Although it's not credited/mentioned or acknowledged in any way, My Penthouse skybox that I spent a shit ton of hours texturing and drawing the city line for was in ROLE Magazine.
Check it out.
Look at this fucking hipster

I need to find a prim scrubber that targets only my old retexturer scripts and not my toaster scripts. The one the retexture thing came with deletes everything.

If that man made a movie, he's get like 90% of the credits.

New Scripts... coming soon
I got the final complaint about my current texture change scripts*, so now (hopefully this will happen) I am commissioning new texture change scripts for my hair and items.
I have a new hair built and ready to be scripted, so that will be out this weekend. I also might try to make a non scripted hair this week if RL doesn't get all complicated.
I remade my hair textures slightly and all hairs from this point out will be made with them. Same colors though. While redoing every color I have (this means my regular colors and my streak colors that I don't normally sell) I realized that I have enough variations to do 3 packs of hues for Red, Blonde, Brown, Blue, Purple, Pink, Green, Black/white. This is just for the hairs I made with the newer non-tipped textures.
So here is the question, how much bitching do you think I'd get from people if I started selling 3 packs for +$L30 to their original price? That would mean my L$130 hairs would be $L160 and my L$150 would now be L$180, but you'd get three shades of a color. MOST people only buy Black and blonde to be honest, so even thinking that a customer would be like "YAY 3 awesome shades of Blue" who isn't me (I love blue hair right now), is kinda of.. not going to happen. Transaction histories prove this.
The Pros and Cons.
- Save prim space.
- Save actual vendor space.
- The textures are already made
- I think I have all my toaster scripted originals
- I have to retoast my SRU scripted hairs anyway
- More colors! Even if I'm the only one who gives a shit!
- Everyone only buys black, Blonde, ash & sometimes Rusty.
- That's a buttload of hairs to repackage, extremely time consuming.
- Chances of me fucking up vendors or scripting increased when I have to do it over and over and over.
- Every nightmare I had toasting past hairs will be repeated.
- Complaints from people who bought the hair before I did this. (although, I do have Cobalt.)
- I'll actually be losing $L by grouping.
- Losing $L makes getting sim eventually more distant.
Any thoughts? How many people out there who have already bought my hair think they will be pissed to rebuy it for more colors?
*Since this last one came from someone who didn't even own the item they were complaining about, that was a great indicator that I need to change my scripts. As much as I hate re-scripting things, I hate being IMed about this stuff more.

I haven't been able to get on much in the last week. Mostly cause I has shit to do. <--extremely important person. That Adult swim cartoon commentary isn't going to watch itself. no sir.
Here are 3 of the like 10 Venture bros inspired shirts I made myself in the game. These are my favorites.
Henchmen 21 in the shirt.
