Thatʻs a ridiculously long subject line =)

So as some people have seen (and many have tweeted/emailed/texted me) my epic Twisp and Catsby recreation in Minecraft made the front page of penny-arcade.com *girlish squeals of delight!*

And I was going to postpone posting this till I had finished my pset but I guess thatʻs not happening till I get this out of my head. I basically spent this ENTIRE PAX sitting in BYOC first crafting Twisp and Catsby then crafting my masterpiece. Iʻve got pictures of both and video of the second so have a gander =) OH, and I won a bunch of computer parts for the Twisp and Catsby (along with a medal!) so I guess Iʻm building myself a custom gaming rig this summer, and with a 1200W powersupply itʻs gonna be epic!

So yes, behold my obsession:

International Space Station Minecraft Sculpture
Saturday's Sculpture - 15 hours to Build with the wonderful contre and enzoid doing a ridiculous amount of menial labour to get it done for me =)

I call this a not-to-scale replica of the International Space Station with chunk of earth beneath =)

So yes, two days at a LAN party and I spend the whole time playing Minecraft =) I was atleast able to rope a couple people into my insanity, and Iʻm inordinately pleased with what I produced in a short amount of time with absolutely no forethought.

Yay! Those are awesome things, I'm glad you won an award :)

I started Minecraft recently; I love exploring in Peaceful mode but haven't gotten into building things yet.

yeah peaceful is my favourite to play in =) Though on my own game I donʻt build either, I just mine. I want to make a flat world!

the break was sorely needed! though of course i still managed to get the PAXflu :P But it seemed to be just a basic chest cold this year instead of the swineflu so that's something
