My First Professional Music Video!

 Two blog posts within a day of each other? You can't be serious!

For last semester I had to produce a music video for one of my classes. I collaborated with my friend Jordan Lawrence and used his song "It's Done." The production process took about 2 weeks. This is definitely one of the best things I've ever been a part of, check it out!

Listen to more of Jordan's music:

Consarn Those...Unicorns?!

A new patch came out to coincide with the release of The Sims 3 Town Life Stuff. It has a nice long list of fixes. Haven't downloaded it myself yet, I plan to install it when I get TLS (probably tomorrow).

But wait!

What's this? A huge chunk (possibly all) of coding related to Pets was included with the patch as well? Eyup. A ton of stuff we didn't know about the expansion is contained in the file DeltaBuild0.package. A full list of the new stuff can be read here:

My favourite things to come out of this:
-Ice cream trucks and vending machines? Awesome!
-Unicorns are the new "creature." Didn't see that coming, but I think they have potential, especially with their magical abilities. Funny thing is, if I didn't start watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic I probably would have reacted badly to this (seriously, that show is actually really good).
-The variety of small pets is easily the best the series has seen so far. Hedgehogs?! HECK YEAH
-Looks like there's new singing interactions for sims? 
-Country and RnB may be new radio stations.
-Sims have to actually ask permission to ride another sim's horse. It's the little things that make The Sims more believable. if unicorns are in this game, then that means we can create something similar to...

Looks like the exchange will become about 20% cooler.

The 50th Blog Post, Really!

I first had to write a blog for one of my journalism classes at Sheridan College. After I graduated I saw my journey to Australia as a reason to continue! 

My first post was on June 8, 2010. Now my latest is on July 18, 2011. Over a year of blogging!
Sure I didn't update consistently, but at least for the new year I'm making an effort to blog at least once or twice a week.

Now with the sentimental blog reminiscing out of the way, it's time to talk about the present and the future! 

So the big 10th episode of Aussie Life is out...
What's next? Well, the door has now been blown wide open for expansion with all the new faces that appeared in this episode....
