Kinda funny that a domestic animal would be considered "exotic", but...

Peanut doesn't have the wheel that came attached to the cage anymore- it was too hard to clean and he likes to pee on his wheels. So he has a free standing wheel. It's kind of awkward given the set up but it's a lot easier to wash, which we have to do almost daily.

I'm going to apply for the hedgehog later today. I'm very excited! (We won't be buying one for a few months, we need to save up for the the start up stuff, and it might just be easier to wait until I move in in march.)

Heels cost extra, or something. These shoes are so absurd it's amazing.


Before this, I wasn't aware that heel-less shoes were even A Thing. According to Google Images, they are apparently A Thing. o:

My favorites are probably still the Alexander McQueen "armadillo" shoes.



One of my friends has a theory that haute couture is an elaborate practical joke, and I'm inclined to agree with him.

Perhaps 'exotic' wasn't appropriate, I was more referring to 'exotic' in the sense of something rarely consumed in the country.

People have always reacted that way to mention of them consuming deer meat but not that you mention it 'exotic' isn't really an appropriate word.

I have a free-standing one from when Fievel was in the aquarium tank and it's made of metal wire so it squeaks like a mofo. I am very glad to have this one the cage came with!

Hedgies are so cute.
They call me Sonic...

I'm thinking I'm going to make his cage out of wire storage bins and plastic sheeting. That way we can customize it better. I don't plan to put it on the floor if I can avoid it - I'd rather just buy a cheap card table.


I'm going to be dyeing my hair tonight/tomorrow morning. I'm not sure what color I want to use though. I like the idea of multicolor hair. Maybe blue and purple...

What I'd really have liked to do was put together an aquarium tank set up that has a latching wire lid that gives Fievel several levels to move around on. But they're hard to find and costly.

I like blue, and purple. So my biased is to totally do it.

With a 850$+ price tag, I think the joke's on the customer at this point :/

So there is a chance that Sega might shut down my channel, as they have been doing it to youtubers with Shining Force videos, and I have Shining Force 2 on mine.

Time to remove tags and change titles? Hopefully it won't be a problem to begin with. It's ridiculous to shut down whole channels over copyright issues like that though - the most they should be able to do is remove or block the problem videos.

Rename your videos "Some game that's nothing like Shinning Force".

These kind of creep me out because they look like lobster pincers on your feet. D:

It probably is a really elaborate practical joke. I can't see any other logical reason for it, really.

So far Sega has banned like 5 people and made a few remove all Shining Force videos, one guy had to delete over 200 videos.

I should also point out that most people that have been hit are members of another Shining Force fan forum I also go to. We made a little campaign a while back basically being like "We love Shining Force and we would like to see a new game", I guess this is Sega's response.

With copyright, if you have audio commentary or something else that you did yourself, they have a hard time getting you. I think that's why I've been safe so far.

It always baffles me when companies crack down on fan video play-through's because there is very little they could do to generate a worse public image.

If a video is done as a parody or otherwise has something like a 'face cam' included on the video or as you mentioned, voice overs, I believe the video is protected as original content.

However, youtube has never been one to follow copyright rules as anyone who's ever done a parody can tell you.

The problem is, the way Youtube works, someone from Sega just has to flag as many videos as they can youtube will be like "OOPS STRIKE THREE YOU'RE OUT"

The one guy who got hit DID have audio commentary in his videos, Sega just spammed the fuck out of him and youtube just assumed Sega was right because they are richer than him.
