Console wars: Sony vs Nintendo vs Microsoft. Fight!

I was checking down this list of parts for the rev.A TiBook, and noticed an.. unusual entry in the "Misc" section.

If you're in the UK, and are looking for a fun break away from home, austin_dern noticed that Oasis Air is currently offering Gatwick-Hong Kong flights from £75 each way. (I couldn't get the flight search to work, though - kept returning me to the front page) They're intending to run Chicago and Oakland service later on as well.

mycroftb spotted this neat edit: Tony Blair: Should I Stay or Should I Go. Brilliant. ^_^ Not nearly as seamless as Chris Morris' "State of the Union", but great fun.

Somehow, this seems so very wrong.. peanut butter slices.

For a game suitable for children, Animal Crossing: Wild World does have some amusing clothing options available.. I've now got all four characters wearing a bodice (including the boy =:), gas mask, and bunny hood. ^_^

Yay! LJ comments are working for me again. (Yesterday, I had to check my last entry manually for any new comments)
Where did you get the gasmask? :D
Just a little something Mabel and Sable had for sale one day. ^_^ I could order some, if you feel like visiting Bunnyton.

Wish I could find the crown again - I've only seen that once, soon after I started. At 800,000 Bells, it was a little out of my reach at the time, when I was busy trying to pay off the 20,000 Bell debt for the first stage of the house, with little more than shells and native fruit. :-P
There's actually a hat that is even more expensive; the Pharoh hat. It's basically a big gold pharoh face like from a sarcophagus. XD

I've seen it a couple times and the crown a couple times, but not enough money to get 'em.
Really? I'm not sure I've ever seen that - but then, some items are much rarer than others. I've never found the moon for sale, and the Lovely Kitchen only just turned up last week.. wonder if that makes my Lovely furniture collection complete. (I did get the complete Mush collection, though I didn't see much of an HRA bonus as a result - I thought I'd read in one of the guides that would give an extra 30,000 points)

I do have the similar sounding Mummy's Mask, or whatever it's called, which comes with that "curse" of making you fall down while running. (Oddly, neither that nor the gas mask prevent you from enjoying coffee at The Roost =:)

I wonder how you're meant to afford the ultra-expensive items? One portrait (Pelly, ISTR) was something like one billion bells.. if I wanted, each harvest in Bunnyton can net me around 250,000 Bells, but that's still a long way from affording that! Maybe it's just a nod to hackers tweaking the game files.. ^_^
It makes a wierd sound when you put it on, and I wouldn't be surprised if it made you fall down, but I'm sure it was the Pharoh's Hat or something similar.

I've never seen the moon in Nook's shop, but I got one from Wishy the Star. I didn't really want it since it doesn't suit my decoration scheme. Boy did that sell for a lot!

You can make rediddleiculous amounts of money from the turnip trade, and there's Wishy the Star, and fossils, and other things besides the fruit.
It sounds like something different, as this mask was only something like 12,000 Bells. I was amused to notice that if you fall down while on the beach, you do indeed leave a person-sized impression on the sand.. ^_^;

Ahh, Wishy! I should go wandering around at night more, yes. And then there's the occasional balloon drifting by, of course, which I finally realised you need to try shooting down from the "north" of the village.. I'd tried many times before, and even what looked like hits didn't have any effect. I've only seen Gulliver's UFO once since that "discovery", though - but I got an Arc de Triomphe out of him, which contributed to Coco's travel theme. (How does Wishy escape planetfall all the time?)
Apple had so much left over from unsold orange iMacs that they had to work it into the MacBooks...

Me, I'm waiting for the Blue B-

... no, I can't finish that sentence, it's just not right. ;)
I'll have you know I liked the Flower Power first generation iMacs, too. ^_^ But the iLamp was the family's pinnacle - so cute, and highly practical in use. But not quite up to the performance of the current revision.. (what kind of SL framerates do you get?)

I do have a tangeberry iBook as well. Or had, given the PMU seems to've died, so it'll get parted out for presentation on the almighty eBay. It began life innocently enough as a tangerine model, but when I replaced the main board, it was simpler just to leave the lower case of the new one attached. So it's blueberry underneath, tangerine on top. ^_^
Somehow, this seems so very wrong.. peanut butter slices.

It seems very pointless, at least. Pre-sliced cheese I can see, especially after you've broken the wire on the cutter for the six billionth time. But how hard is it to scoop peanut butter out of a jar and smear it on a piece of bread? I'll bet it tastes really lovely, too. But at least it's not quite as bad as putting peanut butter and jelly in the same jar. It'll probably sell by the truckload, though. And if people will buy it, I suppose I can't blame them for making it.
As the Simpsons put it so eloquently before the show jumped a whole line of sharks:

Grandpa: "I'm an old man, no one listens to me."
Lisa: "I'm a young girl, no one listens to me."
Homer: "I'm a white male aged 18 to 49, everyone listens to me, no matter how dumb my suggestions are."
He then goes to the cabinet and takes out a can of food titled, "Nuts and Gum: Together at Last."

Though all that does remind me how good the peanut butter burger at the Corvette Diner down in San Diego was.. just as it says, a good burger, with peanut butter where cheese would often belong. Prime for lashings of tabasco. (Not a hot sauce so much as a vinegary condiment, but it worked perfectly there)

Sony VS Nintendo VS Microsoft: nifty!
I want that Master Chef armor!

Peanut Butter Slices: stupid, pointless and boy does that website scream "happy-wacky-fun-clown-time for kids!!!".

New icon! My most favoritest PS1 games EVAR!!1!!
"Jumping Flash 1" and "Jumping Flash 2".

Going to try your own version of that video? ^_^ Very nicely produced - that's the power of good editing and smart camera angles. (Just wish they were talking about next-gen handheld consoles.. but I've not heard a peep about a successor to the DS (which had better include WPA2 support this time :-P), and Sony seems to have its hands quite full with the PS3 for now, both in tech resources and finances)

Mm, "wacky" is pretty much the single word for the site. It's an extremely corporate look, just as anything involving something fairly dull or miserable like banking will invariably have a couple cozied around a monitor, looking so pleased, image fading to white at the edges, everyone appearing as perfectly made up as possible short of being rendered.

Oooh! I'd completely forgotten about JF! I should see if the ISOs are floating around out there. Indeed, I've got a few titles myself, from my Virtual GameStation days, back before SCEA decided to try taking down Connectix. (I've even got my original VGS v.1 CD, hot off the burner at MacWorld - they were so keen to get them out they were using CD-Rs, not pressed discs!)

Wish I still had my Gex standup, but he went back in San Diego. :-P Such a cutie. So shiny. ^_^ Did you ever see a Gex mascot around? Seems like he'd be a fun one to play..
