Music Tag

I was tagged by the talented Simkea! :)

"You can tell a lot about a person from their music. Hit shuffle on your Ipod, MP3 Player, etc. and put the first 10 songs! One rule, no skipping! Tag 10 people and pass it on!”

My iPod wasn’t nearby (and I’m lazy) so I went to my iTunes library and hit shuffle: 

  1. Sleepwalk - Santo & Johnny
  2. New Amsterdam - Elvis Costello & The Attractions
  3. Sugar Magnolia - The Grateful Dead
  4. Learn to Live with What You Are - Ben Folds
  5. A Side Wins - Sloan
  6. Modern Nature - Sondre Lerche
  7. Walking on the Moon - The Police
  8. America - Simon & Garfunkel
  9. We’re So Starving - Panic at the Disco
  10. Girl on the Wing - The Shins

I’m tagging the first 10 people that show up on my dash! - darkdagon, cyberqueen13, pixeljackpot, thenoisyneutron, roseoftheoakmoonsims, mmmcheezy, aikea-guinea, tiptoesims, laudestudio, and aminovas. :)

1. Morning coffee and berry-picking. Gotta make some money somehow.

2. Sam does some stand-up in Oasis Springs. No tips (I don’t think his skill level is high enough yet), but he did get some laughs.

3. Dance break! Arlene is giving her dad some serious side-eye.

4. Sam attempts to get buff, or at least work off some of those chocolate cake calories. (Although all he really needs to do is keep digging up crystals and fossils, and he’ll hulk out eventually. :-p I’m glad they’re working on a fix for that!)

Arlene making a silly face, contemplating the meaning of orange juice, hugging Blarffy the Bear, and eating chocolate cake for breakfast with her dad.

I made my first starter in TS4! And it was a bit of a challenge. I had to delete some of the landscaping just to purchase a toilet. :-p (Don’t ask why I didn’t buy the toilet before I started landscaping…my priorities are messed up).

Anyhoo, I’ve uploaded it to the gallery if anyone wants it. This is where Sam Wyatt and his daughter Arlene are living, so it has two bedrooms and was decorated according to their personalities. Also it was based on a vintage 1920s house plan so it’s a bit outdated - although it obviously got a new coat of paint on the outside since it’s tough to make anything look old and weathered in TS4. :)

You can find it under my Origin ID silrosse or the hashtags jenba or wyatt.

Single dad Sam Wyatt and his daughter Arlene have moved into Blythe Harbor. Sam aspires to be a comedian but currently works part-time mowing lawns (thank you, plasticbox’s Teen Careers for All Ages!). Arlene is a bright and outgoing girl who wants to make friends with frogs (and people, too).

OK, the neon signs do NOT work for scaling up. *lol*

aurna:

Decided to try have some fun with TS4 Roofing - it resulted in a rather large but still quaint cottage.  Did I mention how much I love the look of the plants in TS4?  Just need a proper ‘moveobjects on’ now.  Created this for my cardigan loving, romantic bookworm Sim - Mabel Quigley.

Spring Blossom Cottage

Type: Residential on 30x20 Lot
Value: 117,809 Simoleons
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1

No CC used.  Both the full house and individual rooms are available in the TS4 Gallery under my Origin ID: Aurna or tagged #aurna.

Aurna, this is beyond adorable! I love it!

This is kind of a weird little abode, but it’s based on an actual house plan. I built it for a slightly snobby, ambitious couple (a writer and a programmer) and a sibling who is “renting” the second master suite. It’s in the Gallery under my Origin ID “silrosse”, but you can also search on the hashtags “jenba” and “southernsun”.

Features:

  • Open concept kitchen/living/dining
  • Chess table, TV, stereo, easel, violin, multiple computers
  • Bar and game room (small, but the card table fits!)
  • Two bedrooms (master suites) with bathrooms
  • One additional bathroom on the lower level
  • Courtyard with patio
  • Sprinkler system
  • Playtested for at least three Sim days

More pictures here, here, and here (they were work-in-progress pics so the lot might look slightly different from the one I’ve uploaded). Thank you to everyone who left feedback! ♥
