Easy Ornaments: Rum Bottle Roses

Difficulty - 1/5
Duration - 1/5

Let's keep this quick, shall we? I've got a lot of work to be doing and not a hell of a lot of time to be doing it in; exams are this week and most of my time is currently taken up with sitting in the corner of my room rocking back and forth. To distract myself from impending doom for a little bit, I thought I'd show you something pretty I made:

Yup, I wrote all those textbooks.
It's nice, no? And it's as easy as persecuting racial minorities to make if you want one of your own. All you need is a bottle of your choice -

Animal Crossing Is Ruining My Life

The most adorable collection of polygons this side of a Katamari - Ben
It's been a rather exciting week for all involved here in Rhona-land! Went out for drinks that involved some rather questionable shots, went out and got my hair cut at an unreasonable time the next morning (I thought I was dying, I couldn't stop shaking. Stay in school, kids) and I have been introduced to a game that has slowly but surely taken over my life.

Much like the liver disease from this thing. Oh god.
(The shot we have see above is a delicacy available from a bar in Edinburgh and is delightfully called a Brain Haemorrhage. Deeeeee-licious. Other shots include, but are not limited to: Ectoplasm, Flatliner, Devils Kiss and, most terrifyingly of all...a Slippery Nipple! Huzzah!)

The name of that game, dear readers, is Animal Crossing: Wild World. Now I know what you're thinking (well, not really. I'm not a mind reader...or am I?), but this is what I thought about the game prior to playing it: a pointless toy for people who couldn't handle proper games. It doesn't have a real point to it other than earning money and decorating your house and becoming friends with people in your town and stuff; that doesn't exactly tick all the boxes in my corner. I like games that have a point, e.g. save the princess, solve the murder, escape the laboratory and so on and so forth in that fashion. Games that have an actual purpose instead of just kind of dicking about. But oh dear readers, how wrong I was. I was definitely taken off guard by how much enjoyment I was able to derive from this game.

Something I Didn't Mean To Get Invested In But Then I Did - A TV Review By Rhona

Rhona Reviews! Yeah, alliteration, nice. Anyway, today I'm going to talk to you about a TV show I kind of like a lot. It wasn't supposed to turn out this way I swear! Picture this - it's been a long day. I've had three hours of lectures in the morning then a five hour bar shift at the union. I've not eaten and probably not slept because that seems to be something I've decided to give up for some unknown reason. So it's late, I'm tired and starving; I want to watch something pretty easy going to wash over me whilst I stuff my face with pizza. But it quickly escalates from something I watch on my laptop with an episode here or there when I wanted to unwind to something I actively prioritise above my university work because I want to watch it. So what is this TV show?

I know, I know.
Yeah, okay, I know, I know how it looks. You guys are making assumptions in your mind right now about what this show is like but just like, hear me out okay? Yeah? Awesome.

Goat Simulator. Yes, Goat Simulator

"It's baaaaaad."
You likely already know about it. Heck, you probably already own it; but to those poor few of you that are unaware of the recent release that has rocked the gaming world I'd like to introduce you to Goat Simulator. At long last your dreams of digitally emulating bovine life can be fulfilled in glorious technicolour.

I would like to find the right words to describe this game, but I think only the pictures can do it justice. And so, with only the lightest of context and critique, in ascending order from weird and humorous to horrifyingly hilarious, I present to you, dear reader, the wonder that is Goat Simulator.

Film Favourites: Jurassic Park

Even the poster gives me tingles.

The Film

From back in the glory years of Steven Spielberg before A.I. and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ruined his winning streak, Jurassic Park is either one of your favourite movies or you are an evil alien from the planet Killjoy in the galaxy of Funlessness and we must now burn you. With fire.
