Listen. I wouldn’t just fuck an alien. I’d take an alien out on a date, to their favorite restaurant. I’d marathon an aliens favorite show with them. I’d spoon an alien every night. I’d bring an alien little random tokens and gifts to remind them of my affection. I’d help an alien work through their emotional issues and family baggage. I’d adopt a shelter pet with an alien and raise him as our very own son. I’d grow old with an alien, every blissful year of our union reminding us of how much we cherish each other. I’d make love to an alien.
#Look if they didnt want Shep to bang aliens they wouldn't make all of the humans shit now would they
Tourism poster for Mystery Flesh Pit National Park, 1980
“While the rural areas of west Texas are known for their sparse populations, one tourist attraction seems to continually generate a steady stream of visitors around vacation seasons. The titular “Mystery Flesh Pit” has been a wellspring of fascination for geologists, biologists, sociologists, engineers and the general public alike. Guests are advised to book age-appropriate tours and activities well in advance of their visit, though the pheromonal discharges and the overall agitation level of the MFP can vary with short notice. Visitors should be advised to be prepared for changes in schedule & availability.“
#Mystery flesh pit is the American Scarfolk i love it
What do you make of this weirdly remodeled warehouse home in the UK?
Serial killer easy-clean stainless steel kitchen.
Heavy duty spiral stairs.
Hmmm…stainless steel fireplace, but medieval castle doors in the living room.
Then, there’s the ship’s hatch. Submarine? Space ship?
Where are we?
Spacy steep steps leading to the home gym.
Music room? Dance studio?
Hang out room.
This looks like a room in a sanitarium.
And, it’s got the bathroom to prove it- even a giant toilet paper roll, but it’s up too high.
Are those sinks or bidets?
Is that a two-way mirror?
What is this room? Are those sleeping nooks?
This is just weird.
The wall was sealed- would’ve been nice if they left a door to get out on the deck. Just went back to the site and saw the video tour- who the hell chose that music? I had to shut it off, it sounded like you’re trapped and can’t get out.
can’t you see that poor couch is fighting for its life
seeing the couch and its color in the middle of this literally felt like the part in the ending of Everywhere at the End of Time when there’s a brief moment of clear music

#I bet you the builder was pissing himself putting this shit in #The interior designer had a field day. The property owners just want shit to cost less. The builder is installing a metal toilet #The owner is definitely a Londoner for sure
I distinctly remember hearing about a book that was entirely fictitious but book reviewers and book clubs all claimed it was real and that they had read it despite it never being published. Only issue is that I was fighting an ice wraith in skyrim at the time I was listening to this fact, and now every time my brain thinks of this book im instantly supplied with, “the lusty argonian maid is a fake book and everyone claims to have read it” and actually….. Is that wrong? Who has actually read the lusty arginian maid?????
Aliens: [finally contacts with NASA and wants to know more about the human race]
#Lbr we're gonna be like the weird horny space species arent we #Like we'll rock up to some space station and the other aliens will be sitting around drinking orgolon-3 splutsprunt juice all fancy like #And a group of humans will walk in and they'll all be like ah fuck. Here they come. Drinking that fizzy piss and acting like fleshy bimbos
Due to a lull at work, I found myself with some free time.
So I decided to 3d model a furby because I couldn’t find a decent one online.
It came out ok in the end. But the process came with quite a bit of nightmare fuel.
I first did as much as I could without having to touch the hair sim. I had no idea how to do hair sim.
But I “luckily” found a quick hair sim button in blender. So that was looking quite nice. However I was a fool. I hadn’t yet touched any sliders on the hair particle system. And i still needed to add colour.
This should have been my first warning. I had to hide the face plate, so i could remove some of the hair bits that were clipping it. I wasn’t prepared.
Then I decided I wanted to have another bit of light hair on top. simply add a square under the hair and press the hair sim button.
I don’t know exactly how I managed this, but somehow i had made the particle system use the data from the gravity sim to generate more hair.
I made the mistake of zooming out.
and zooming out more
My computer didn’t like that. The hair, It just kept going, but the more I zoomed out the more my computer slowed down. So this is as far as i was willing to push it.
After fixing that issue I put a bit more effort prettying the model up. First I added colour to the faceplate and its different parts, then I cooked up a quick and dirty procedural texture for the eyes.
finally I made a front hair sim for the white belly, this led to another problem. at some point the baked physics started getting…
no mater what I did the hair would just start growing a few frames in.
I tried everything I could! I scrapped the physics bake, I trawled through all the particle systems sliders. I changed numbers randomly. I even did a full uv unwrap, which I had been avoiding. nothing fixed it.
I really didn’t want to end up with something not a furby at the end of all this work. so i kept looking for a solution.
Then i found out it animated.
In the end I just saved the file (I’d realized I hadn’t saved once up until that point. almost had heart attack when it froze for a few seconds while saving), then closed and reopened blender. Of course the old, “turn it off then on again” worked perfectly.
So there you go, I now have a slightly cursed furby 3d model.

Fun fact: This scene is from an art project called Shrek Retold, in which the movie Shrek was re-created, scene by scene, by over 200 artists of all varying levels of talent, and it’s freely available on youtube.
