I am a girl-person who likes nerdy-person things.
Still have no computer and my grandmother just died so whooooo yeah that just happened.
theworstbear Yeah thanks for that! I referenced that prebuilt for some of the specs actually, and have looked around on Newegg about things.
I’m wobbling between building one or not. Everyone says it’s cheaper and very rewarding but I’d have to put so much time into it and I’m so very afraid of messing it up. I think if given enough motivation I could do it (I dabble in all sort of things whoo!), but I tend to procrastinate. I’m also leery of getting parts that turn out to be incompatible and have no idea how to properly set up a tower that can cool well. I’m very concerned about overheating, I had a few heat-based crashes with my old laptop.
I’m definitely getting my accessories from Newegg regardless. Mouse, keyboard, headset and the like.
If I do build I’ll probably reference pcpartpicker (there’s a lot of information about different things) for proper build things and get my stuff from Newegg.
Still really eeeeeeeech about the whole “build your own PC thing” but I am looking at what PC parts to use because that’s important regardless of whether I get a prebuilt or not.
Here’s some vague specs so far amassed from my little brother’s tech savvy friend and the internet (thank you internet). My formal apologies for my ignorance:
CPU- Intel i5 processor, i7 works too
Power supply- Corsair 500W but must research more?
RAM- “At least 8 gb” This means a 64 bit system. Or something.
Cooling- fans (liquid looks badass but super hard to install, if I buy a prebuilt I’ll go with liquid if I make I’ll go with fans)
GPU- Nvidia 700 or 800? Nvidia.
Hard Drive- A lot? 1TB? idk
A DVD/CD drive because I still use those
Obviously a keyboard, new mouse (a proper gaming one), and a nice monitor. These will be bought separately. And in the LED color blue.
I am missing things but this is a process.
Aaaahahahaha computer has bitten the dust and im off to join quazar in the land of people sans proper tech.
Well, I may have wasted a whole day being angry, but at least in times of strife, I can always count on one thought to bring me joy:
Noble Dead college AU
I really did not need to start thinking about AUs of TNDS.
Fuck me sideways my computer’s display driver is starting to go all wibbly and now I have little pockets of glitchy shuddery stuff on the edges of my screen and sometimes it goes totally black to recover GOD HELP ME NO STAY ALIVE COMPUTER YOU CAN DO IT.
THIS IS BECAUSE I WANT TO REPLACE YOU ISN’T IT.
the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.
A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.
A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.
The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.
Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.
But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well.
Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.
Reblogging over here. French animation tends to do better with diversity than Disney does, hahaha.
