The Hybrid Theory of Y2K

Music has been a huge impact on my life since I was a child and when I saw that these MadPea CDs (from their MadPea Y2K Game gacha set at Rewind) each had their own original music or voiceover clips, I greedily had to get my hands on them and play them all! With these CDs (10 total) working like they do in RL by popping them into the portable CD player as well as the disc tray of the computer, both items played the sound clips. Personally, I love the portable CD player because it functions exactly like my first CD player I ever had! You pop open the CD player, insert the CD into it, close the lid and hit play, watching the disc spin round and round through the window of the CD player as it reads the disc.

MadPea Y2K Retro | Mine & Yours

FYI – The MadPea Y2K Game gacha has a little surprise interactive activity if you collect all the CDs and use them in the computer (Rare). You also get an achievement from it for those completionist MadPea fans!

The MadPea Y2K Game gacha consists of 26 Common and 1 Rare items in this set. Only part of the set is shown above in my blog picture. Not shown are the full set of 10 playable CDs with original music and voiceovers, 3 different colored portable CD players, 3 different colored headsets, and 4 different colored desk lamps. Also, the modem plays the oh-so-nostalgic dial-up tone we all know and love when we all connected to the internet to chat on AIM, check our emails, or download music. It is amazing how much technology has changed through the years.

Special shout out to the real life talent of the following people who made the variety of CDs possible!

✄ Original Music by: Aitolda Cooljoke, Harter Fall, Pandagroov Windstorm, Stefan Hansen, and Waghorne Truss

✄ Voiceovers by: Krow Ames, Sarai Wise, Oobleck, anesphitia, Mayafayy, Jigzzz Hazelnut, iAmTheMadHatter, Veruca Beck, boldmiss, and Kaylahny

I’d Pause My Game For You

I’ve been slowly working on my man cave (keyword: slowly) which is pretty much half a gaming/entertainment room and half a sectioned off red room. Despite my man cave being catered to just me, I still like having Livvy there with me. I have a gaming chair for her and a gaming chair for me, though now that I think about it, she really doesn’t need her own dedicated chair because I just have her sit in my lap anyway. She knows that if I am in the middle of a gaming session, she could plop her sexy self into my lap and my full attention would be on her right away.

I'd Pause My Game For You | Mine & Yours

Stockholm&Lima made this nice Subtlety pillow that has found its way permanently in my game room. That is the cushion pillowy seat that I am sitting on with my beautiful love. The pillow serves as a sleek cushion with 12 outstanding singles and 9 bento couples animations:

12 Solo (non bento) animations male/female mixed
4 m/f bento cuddles *exclusive*
5 m/f bento adult animations (in the adult version only) *exclusive*

Ladies and gentlemen, let me take a moment and highlight Stockholm&Lima for a sec. I’ve been a longtime fan of Surrealia Anatine’s work for ages, dating back to when she owned ANA_mations. Talk about blast from the past, right? In fact my earliest items from her dates all the way back to 2010. You might be saying.. Damn, Caleb. Obsessed much? Well tell you what – Surrealia’s animations are worth being obsessed about because I know she makes quite a few of them on her own.

Her animations feel so natural and fluid, and are so well made. She is one of the very few creators I know who make their own quality animations to put in their products. Now, she has created her own bento animations! Though the pillow only has a few bento cuddles and bento adult animations, these are so well made and natural-looking. The face, the eyes, the hands, the fingers, and the body all move in a single animation – AMA_zing! (see what I did there? …. do you see it? lol I make myself laugh sometimes)

Anyway, check out a corner of my man cave gaming room with the Subtlety pillow actually nestled in my bigger gaming chair below.

Oh! I’m going to mention it in the credits, but I also wanted to actually note it here too, you’ll see Ariskea’s [Press Start] Vintage Girl Game[DVA] in the background and you’ll probably notice that your version is not the same. That is because I modded mine. I flipped the outer texture to showcase Ariskea’s original art for the arcade machine of D.Va. I also added my own title texture for the game since it didn’t have one and the rest of my arcade machines had a name to them. So I made up my own, playing off D.Va’s name with a taunt she would use in the actual Overwatch game. I also used the coin slots from Stockholm&Lima: Arcade Machine’s to the Ariskea one just for that retro pay to play style that I am used to.
