Talera v Materialism

Posted 9th May 2011 at 12:57 PM by Talera

I’m not what I consider to be materialistic. I do not need the latest and greatest items. If I need an item to do A, B and C I will buy something that does that and not see the point in getting one that also does D, E and F if it costs more.

Yet I own a lot of ‘stuff’. This tends to be things that look like crap to everyone else but mean a lot to me, for example, I have an origami dragon made from dragon print proper origami paper which was made by a good friend when I was in college....

It's been a while since I've posted to my blog but I'm feeling like I need to just get something off my chest so I'm going to take this opportunity to have a huge vent/whinge.

I have a twitter account - well one does exist - but I forgot the password one day, then I forgot the name of the #tag I was using, and that was that for twitter.

Do I miss either? No not really.

I sort of miss the games .... must check my farmville crops and see...

Talera vs the Void

Posted 21st April 2011 at 01:43 PM by Talera

So I have been absent, I fell into a ‘void’.

What did my void consist of?

Well I got sent out of town for work, and it flooded there. Then I went away a week and it flooded there. Then I went back out of town and it flooded there. I returned home for work and it flooded at home. Now I’m not making light of the whole flooding in QLD issue, I was lucky in that my residence only sustained property damage, the goods that were damaged were not essential (though they were...

Posted 21st April 2011 at 05:34 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)


You're still here reading this? I applaud your tenacity. I've been far too busy lately with work/life/world domination to post a proper update lately.

Well, here goes.

Managed to pick up the following games off of ebay:
I may be forgetting some others, but I've not had great luck lately in scoring complete in box versions of games in halfway decent condition...
