Walkthrough of sorts

Hello.

Who wants some Absinthe Tea & Nori Pastry?
Just kidding.

I haven't done a Walkthrough in ages, neither here, nor on DA, LJ or any other place(where I used to do so).
Even though I won't really explain anything like in a Tutorial here.
But I love to do that & since they were always well received... eh... *shrugs*
So here it is.

I just wanted to do some abstract modeling. Playing like a child with some virtual modelling clay.

It's so gorgeous to see what you can create out of just one cube.

I love working with these Programmes.

Okay, that one(actually two) needs some nice Materials

The tiny blue Squares(called Buckets) in the rendering process show that I have a Dual Core.

Isn't this nifty?
Well, obviously this isn't a huge thing. It's just to make sure, my fingers won't "go stiff" & having a new Background. (The actual end rendering fits my Screen) :D

Ah, that was nice. No I'll be able to sleep.
Goodnight all you Lovelies.

Yours,
Nokta

Nokta reads... 06/2012

Sh*te, I am done with my set Goal of Books to read this Year. :ȴ
Ah, well... whatever. On to the next ones.

Auferstehung (The Rising) - Brian Keene
★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Since I am a huge Fan of Zombies & all the other undead fictious Creatures, you can guess that I have watched & read almost every movie & book, respectively, that has ever been available to me.
This book would have been a lot better if it had not had such useless & ridiculous Zombies, like the one in the Aquarium(I won't spoil you further, so I won't specify this any more), and if this story would not have been so terribly religious at times.
I want horror, blood & dead people all over the place but not god, heaven, faith & stuff like that.
Such a disappointment.  :ᶑ

Stadt der Toten (City of the Dead) - Brian Keene
★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆
The same friend that recommended the first one to me, also recommended the 2'nd part of this to me.
So me, being as thick as a brick sometimes, I read this against my better judgement  & of course I got disappointed... again... as expected.
It was a tiny bit better than the first one, but that did not save this book from being crappy.
I do not know why I did this to me after the first part. Masochistic much? *meep*

Raststätte Mile 81 (Mile 81) - Stephen King
★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆
*sighs* Oy Uncle Stevie, what is your problem exactly with cars again?
I can not stand those things that much either... but with you it really borders on a Psychosis, when it comes to vehicles.
The main idea was nice & entertaining, but the rest was not my thing.
Felt quite a bit like a déjà-vu to me.

Zombie (Zombie) - Joyce Carol Oates
★★★★★★★☆☆☆
O'kay...!? This one was like a slap in the face.
I really liked it, yet I hate it so much. Hard to explain, so I won't even try, mind you.
Oates did a very great job here, even though I honestly wanted to throw it away after the first 20 pages.
But I did not! :
Ooh, ooh... AND despite the Title, this Book is not about Zombies of the Romero-Type or so, just though you should know.
(only one real Book to snap, 'cause the others I did read via a friends e-book thingy)

In other News, my mother wants to build a new shoe cabinet that will fit the tight space of her 2'nd hallway in my parents flat. I had the most gorgeous idea & already started to create a 3D model, when she told me in no certain words to f*ck off.
I totally flipped because, HEL-LO-HO!?... she has no intuition when it comes to self made furniture these past years. The last one she created with the help of my father & second eldest brother is a horrible & chunky Monster, which stands in the way when you go through the 1'st hallway, 'cause she mismeasured it.
I mean, the woman is 95% blind, for f*cks sake, why won't she listen to me? -It's not like I want to burn a Kur'an in front of her.
Sorry for the rant at the end... hey, that even rhymes? :D

Yours, 
Nokta

Car batteries & valuable Lessons


This week I learned 4 new things about cars.

I. If you ain't going to drive for longer than 2 weeks...
...you only need to use a wrench, size 10 in my case, and loosen the negative(black) terminal form the car battery. Et voilà.
And if you're as lazy as me you will use a ratchet wrench/socket handle.
Also, don't forget to retighten it, before you want to drive again. Else your car won't work.

II. Had I known that earlier...
...my car battery wouldn't have gotten exhausted to the point of no return.
Which means, I wouldn't have had to pay that guy from the Honda repair shop such a horendous price to put a new battery into my little baby.

III. Something that I...
..could have done myself actually.
It is so easy to change a car battery, that even a five year old could do it, if you held them high enough so they could actually a.) see what they do & b.) reach it so as to work.

IV. And if you don't...
...drive more than 25 km's per week, buying a car is utter idiocy.
'Cause no matter what, the batteries will die sooner or later again, because you won't be able to recharge them enough if you only drive a 'tiny bit' around.


That's all folks.

Have a nice weekend and look after your Cars.
No matter how old or ugly those poor Babes are.

Yours,
Nokta
