I Come Home to Find My Roommate Sitting at Our Table Looking Traumatized
- Me: Are you OK?
- Roommate: *Holds Up a Copy of TFIOS, about 2/3rds of the way finished*
- Me: Oof. When did you start reading it?
- Roommate: *starts tearing up* TODAY.
Review of Ace Attorney 5: Dual Desitinies
After a lot of procrastinating, I finished Ace Attorney 5 last night. Before I start, let me say that I was very excited about this because Apollo and I have the same exact personality [or we did] and I was extremely pleased with everything about him in this game.
I was happy to note that is it pretty much like all of the other games, surprisingly so, with a few weird differences that come with the new-ish platform. For instance, there are random anime cutscenes (a la Professor Layton) in which everyone’s voice [except for Apollo’s and Athena’s] is WRONG WRONG WRONG. Everything about this game is more Japanese, which makes it difficult at times to pretend it takes place in L.A. (i.e. There is an entire town based around youkai). It also includes way more anime tropes, making some parts slightly more predictable. It is also rated M; I didn’t really know why until the last case, (JESUS CHRIST THAT CASE) but it’s still mild compared to most M games. Just … out of left field.
After 2+ months of not being able to run (or do any physical activity) I finally got my cast off last Tuesday. It feels weird to do missions on a stationary bike, so I’ve been listening to Radio Mode during physical therapy. It’s given me some »ahem« interesting stories, and one or two times I have laughed aloud so hard that other people have moved away from me.
»I heard the clip where Eugene gives Jack his new cricket bat and I promptly fell to the floor twitching. Sir Geoffrey.
» I am apparently the runner who picks up all the sports bras. This came into play during the runner Olympic thing where they have an event to see who can put on the most sports bras.
Jack: This is dedicated to a certain runner.
Eugene: No runner in particular …
Jack: *cough runner 5, cough*
Eugene: The sports bra relay.
*I also feel this way whenever ANYONE sings “Text Me Up.”
»On that note, Jack and especially Eugene understandably have no idea how sports bras work.
Eugene: They have a clasp, right?
Jack: Um … I don’t think so.
Eugene: (obviously) Pfft, I don’t know!
Jack: Preeetty sure they’re just one continuous piece of fabric.
»”Folding paper airplanes” is a euphemism for Jack and Eugene screwing in the bathroom?
Eugene: In regards to the last bulletin [of two people being caught in the bathroom], I’m glad it wasn’t us they’re talking about. That would be mortifying.
Jack: We’d never get caught!
Eugene: JACK! You’re giving them the idea we would even be in that situation.
Jack: Yeah … we’ve never done weird things in the bathroom except folding paper airplanes. (Hastily) It’s the only place we can do it where Sam won’t glue his hands to his head.
I hate the gym and hope to be up to strength soon. But radio mode is kind of the best.
It’s the NYC Mayoral Elections today, and I bet you, like myself, are unsatisfied with the candidates and would like to be able to choose a “correct” one.
Now you can at least pretend that you did, with these Mayoral Candidate printable badges. Show your pride for the Five-Headed-Dragon party or the Faceless-Old-Woman party.
Happy voting. Remember to vote “no” on turning our fair city into an even bigger tourist trap. Unless that trap is for bears. We have a serious bear problem.
I managed to get one in a vintage shop (called Search & Destroy in NYC). In a completely Night Vale way, I asked where they get the scout uniforms from, and they admitted that they have no idea. “Just some buyer.”
However, you can order actual badges and patches no problem from the boy scout website and stick them on a button-down shirt. They didn’t even ask any questions.
I did order an Eternal Scout badge, but for my work bag, not the uniform. Instead, I made a Night Vale Secret Scout Council patch, the lazy way!
This was Judith’s costume from the Night Vale live show. She was a Strex employee. I’m surprised she’s still alive.

GOOD GOD HAND LETTERING SUCKS. And I had to do it on the floor because I just moved and I didn’t have a chair yet …
Night Vale Boy Scouts have upside-down fleur-des-lis branded on the backs of their necks or their forearms.

I like that I was tagged as “guest artist”
The full Blood Scout cosplay I wore to New York ComicCon (and the Night Vale live show) this year.
Full uniform, shoulder patches, and embroidered bandana. And as per head canon, boy scouts have a branded fluer-des-lis on their forearms (or neck), and for good measure, a Night Vale tattoo on my neck.
Practicing making a shaped burn/wound for the Welcome to Night Vale live show, where I’m apparently going as a Blood Scout. (My headcanon is that Night Vale boy scouts have fleur-des-lis branded on the backs of their necks.)
Not bad, considering it’s the first run. (I will make it less crinkly in the future; I was seriously impatient.) I don’t have the fake blood yet, either, so that will help. But apparently dark lip gloss + black eye shadow makes a bloody bruise.
It’s also removable so that I can make it on my leg or something and then my friend can stick on my neck. I’m also not wearing this to work, so I can make it in advance.
