I found a neato little community today ([community profile] book_memes ) and decided to try this one...
(Oh, I need to tag some people...lol!  So, I pick [personal profile] alleliua and [personal profile] engram !)

-- What book are you currently reading?
Deja Dead, by Kath Reichs

-- How far in are you?
I'm over half way through the book. (I think I'm at page 380 or so and the book is a little over 500 pages.)

-- What's it about?
It is the first book in the Temperance Brennan series. 
Brennan is a forensic anthropologist, working in Montreal when the bones of a woman are found on the grounds of an abandoned monastery.  As the story progresses, more bodies are found and Brennan becomes convinced there is a serial killer on the loose.

-- Are you enjoying it?
Yes I am.
I am a big fan of the TV show Bones (on FOX) and really wanted to read the books that inspired the series.  The book is much, much different and it did take me a bit to really 'get into' the books.  However, now that I have, I look forward to my reading time before bed!

With the weather turning colder and the leaves changing color, I decided it was time to make some autumn/Halloween themed icons.
I hope everyone enjoys them.

Please remember:
1) I would appreciate a quick comment if you decide to use any.
2) Please no hotlinking.
3) I take no credit for the actual photos, I just found them on Google.

5-10 Autumn Leaves
11-18 Movie Monsters

You have entered the realm of the Halloween Legacy!

All rightie, thanks to [personal profile] engram 's suggestion, I created a community for our little project!
Find it here: thehalloweenchallenge.dreamwidth.org/

I am working on making it look a bit better, I promise and I will work on getting everything transferred over there!

Anyway enjoy and I look forward to seeing those founder submissions!
(I've started working on mine!)
cpowellscircus: (Default)
Well, I appreciate all the comments about my Round Robin legacy idea! (I'm so glad I wasn't the only one that found it interesting.)

Now I do want to say that I am not a horror movie buff either...lol!  Depending on the generation I get, I will definitely have to look up character names, too!  Honestly, I'm not all the crazy about horror movies, but I still love Halloween! :)

Anyway, here is a list of people that are interested in participating...
(This is not the generation you will be working on, it is simply a list of people that are interested.)
1) cpowellscircus
2) Alleliua
3) garnet812
4) 6akalaka1
5) xxevermore
6) engram
7) zombiehale (xhale)
8) daysofoursims
9) Joedy_76

So to get started, we need some founders submitted!
Anyone can submit a founder and we will all vote on the one we want to start the legacy with.  You can make your founder as crazy and monster-tastic as you want!
Here are some links to different skintones:
1) community.livejournal.com/wcif_sims/213695.html
2) community.livejournal.com/wcif_sims/213855.html

--I know these are default skintones, but where there is a default, there is usually a regular skintone, too.
--Of course, these are only some suggestions.  Use whatever skintones you want.

Now all I need once you make your founder is a head shot and the name of the founder.
(For naming the first generation, ignore my first post!  You can name your founder from any horror movie that is NOT listed in a generation.  For example, please don't name your founder sim Carrie, since that is a character from the 10th generation movie.  But, feel free to name your founder Sidney, from the movie Scream.  Hope that makes sense!)
Please send me the picture using DW messenger, LJ messenger or email me (carebear_81@mail.com)...
Just remember, you will need to be able to package your sim and send it to the person in charge of the first generation.
Founder Submission: Please try to get ALL founder submissions to me by October 3, 2009! 
The poll will open and be open for 1 WEEK!

There was also a suggestion by engram, to have this Round Robin legacy hosted on DW...
I have no problem with this, except for the polls.  I can't post polls on DW, so all polls will be hosted on my LJ.  Otherwise using Dreamwidth for the Halloween legacy is fine by me.
[personal profile] engram  has also offered TWO codes for anyone interested in participating, that doesn't have a Dreamwidth account and I will happily request some codes if more are needed.
Now I will leave this up to those that are participating...
Simply post a comment with either, yes, I want to do this RR legacy all on DW or no, I want to have to hosted on both LJ and DW.

I do have one question...
Now, with the RR legacy, only the first THREE children are eligible for the heir spot....
(So if someone doesn't know how to package a born in-game sim, please let me know.)
My question, is when you get your heir sim, you can move them into any house, right?
And do you only get your 20,000 simolens to start, right...
(I'm assuming that is how it works, but I just wanted to double check and unfortunately, I can't read Laridian's journal.)
---No one has to worry about answering this...I finally managed to get my computer to cooperate and I could access 'adult' LJ!  YAY!

Well, I think that is about it for now!
We could still use TWO more people that want to participate, so feel free to volunteer to be part of the legacy!

I've had an idea floating around my head for a legacy challenge (and possible round robin) theme...
Since Halloween is fast approaching (and I must admit, I really enjoy the holiday), I was thinking about doing a Halloween themed legacy.

Now I am quite horrible at actually finishing a legacy challenge, so I thought maybe doing it as a round robin challenge would be a good idea. (That and I would really love to see what others would do with it.)

I'm not much for a lot of rules and there are all ready great rules for the legacy challenge (by Pinstar) and the round robin aspect (by laridian.livejournal.com/)...
I certainly can't improve on them and I wouldn't even try!
My basic idea is this...
--Our legacy founder (which anyone can submit a sim to be voted on) would be created using some sort of supernatural skintone, eyes, make up, etc. (Werewolves, aliens, vampires, etc. are encouraged!)
--The founding name would be Halloween (or something cooler if someone can come up with it).  I know I'm not overly original!
--Each generation would be named after horror movie characters...
   Each generation would have its own movie.
   (Example: Generation one--The Exorcist, Generation Two--Alien, Generation Three--Dawn of the Dead, Generation Four--Halloween (1978), Generation Five--Night of the Living Dead, Generation Six--The Shining, Generation Seven--A Nightmare on Elm Street,  Generation Eight--Psycho, Generation Nine--Friday the 13th and Generation Ten--Carrie (1976))
   You can use any character name.  It just had to be a name from the movie.
   I know the first generation is the founder...
   I got a bit carried away with the movies...lol!  I just thought narrowing down the field of names out be easier this way.
--With each generation, you are encouraged to turn the founder/heir into as many supernatural (in game) creatures as you can.
--You may create townies and make them supernatural (monsters), to marry into the family. 
   You just must still follow the legacy rules of only marrying in townies and NPCs.

Well, I think that is about it.
Would anyone be interested?

Now, I know that I'm having trouble accessing my livejournal, but I can still see my friend's pages (I do have trouble if anyone's page is rated 'adult').  So, I may need a little help when someone updates and I can't see it.  (Basically, I just need to know the legacy has been updated and I can add it to a collection post, so everyone will know about the update.)  I can cross post all updates from my DW account to my LJ and I can read comments made on my LJ, so everything should still run pretty smoothly...

Anyway, I would just like to know if there was any interest...

Howdy everyone!
A couple weeks ago, I decided to attempt the asylum challenge with the sims 3...
(The rules I followed can be found here: sims3challengesfavs.blogspot.com/2009/07/sims-3-asylum-challenge.html)

I took a ton of pictures!
(Over a 100!)

Anyway, I thought I would share the first part of the challenge with everyone.

Lots and lots of pictures, general silliness, numerous crazy sim antics and my own special brand of humor!

Howdy everyone!
Hopefully people know me from my LJ (of the same username).

The reason I have started a dreamwidth journal, is the fact that I can no longer access my LJ.
I am not able to login to my account and cannot post, nor comment...
I have contacted support, but haven't heard anything back.
I have also tried clearing my cookies and cache, I updated my version of firefox and I even tried using IE to get onto my LJ. None of that worked.

So, here I am!
I discovered the wonderful import tool, so my entire journal is now here!

Anyway, this will still be mainly a sims site, with a few personal moments thrown in!
I hope everyone will still enjoy my ramblings and pictures!
cpowellscircus: (Default)
Found this on several journals and just had to make one for myself!

Cheerleader-Pulverizing, Orphan-Wracking Enigma from the Legendary Labyrinth

Get Your Monster Name

I also wanted to post that I am having trouble with livejournal.
I am able to post, but I cannot get my journal to load when I am actually signed in.
The only way I can view my journal (or my friend's journals), is by not being signed in.
(I don't know if I will be able to comment or not.)
I really don't know what is wrong, but if anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate them.
(I have tried clearing my cookies and cache.  That hasn't helped.)

It looks like a good day for a Plum family update!
(I've had these pictures sitting around for at least a week; I need to get a move on!)
Without further ado...

Lots of pictures, possible adult language/situations, attempts at humor and other various simmy silliness.

Where are THOSE pickles... )

The Plum Family is now here for everyone to enjoy!

If you any questions about uploading/installing TS3 sim, please check out THIS
This is the important part, because it is how I uploaded and packaged my sims...

"Thanks to SSChan and linuslover30 for doing the testing to make sure this method works.  This eliminates all of the idiocy related to the Sim3Pack and the Launcher.
To export a sim, go into CAS and find the options dots as described above.  This time, select "Save to Sim Bin".  It will do it's saving thing.  When it's finished, go to your My Documents\Electronic Arts
\The Sims 3\Saved Sims Folder, and pull out the .sims file.  Zip or rar for upload.
To install, simply unzip the flie and extract it back to the Saved Sims folder.  That's it!

I was a little bored this evening and decided to make some icons.

Please enjoy them!
