Frankie At Mod The Sims’ Incorrectly Politically Correct Bumnuggetry

Posted in Uncategorized on August 29, 2015 by themaresnest

If there’s one thing that’s always pissed us off about Mod The Sims, it’s their members’ holier-than-thou smugness in relation to the rest of the Simming community at large and rather overblown sense of proportion to their place in the grand scheme of things. Nowhere is that more manifest than in their self-indulgent love of every ‘right-on’ cause like so many First World libertarian fascists.

Enter Frankie vomiting up that favourite of the Dumblrs, Guardian readers, arts students and the rest of the cappuchino bar set… the ‘gender neutral pronouns’ debate:

The most common variations?

scratchhead  shakehead

‘Common’ gives way to the lie that what is about to follow is in any way familiar, rather than that of a micro-minority unheard of outside of academia.

Wait for it, here it comes…

But what ghasted our flabbers so much was that the very next day, after the above load of PC-onanism, Frankie asks the following:

‘I’ve been hearing/reading woman as an adjective more than ever: woman doctor, woman president, woman judge, etc.’

‘This issue is important to me because I’m a writer.’

A writer for who? The National Inquirer?

Great plumbobs in custard, people stopped using ‘woman’ as a prefix (nb. it is a prefix in the above instances, not an adjective) to any regularity at the turn of the century at the latest – going the same way as the ‘-ess’ suffix as largely redundant for most day to day usage (eg. no more ‘manageress’). Maybe if you’d come out of your basement sometime over the last fifteen years you may – just may – have noticed. You strike us as out of touch – frighteningly so – with that day to day world which you hope to communicate with.

Unless of course the swinish multitudes are not high-brow enough for your highly advanced frontal lobe, in which case go right ahead knocking yourself out over Ne, Ve, Ze, Spivak (Spivak!?!?!?!) and the rest of the ragtag and bobtail of the great global political correctness circle jerkathon, most of whom have contributed the sum total of cuckoo spit to the advancement of learning, society or the world in their whole self-indulgent lives.

Sim Oasis Now Abandoned

Posted in Uncategorized on August 29, 2015 by themaresnest

sim oasis dead

With even Sunny (the Austrian one from Sims Dreams – not the Dimblr one) no longer bothering to post any updates…

sim oasis dead 1

…and AmyLuthian having posted nothing since last November (although she has been spotted since then at what’s left of Garden Of Shadows as recently as a fortnight ago…), we think it’s safe to say the long promised ‘new’ forum will never come.

sim oasis dead 2

Farewell Sim Oasis, a sad end to what had once been a promising forum thanks to members dissipating too many energies across too many other forums thereafter.

An SOS From Zedrael – URGENT!

Posted in Uncategorized on August 28, 2015 by themaresnest

Here’s the story straight from the whisky bottle (old joke!)

zedrael's dilemma

So if any of you have the curved chair or scratching post – heck, if you have ANYTHING Zedrael made, get in touch with him on the EA forum here.

Zedrael has been one of the most helpful Simming modders over the years – now’s your chance to do something for all the extra fun he brought to your game.

And Zedrael, if this helps, here’s the Cardboard Box, Champagne Bottle, Whisky Bottle and Halloween pumpkin you made.

Missa_Sissa Finds It Hard To Bare – Unlike Her Simmies…

missa_sissa's naked truth

Let’s at least be thankful that TreyNutz male Simmies aren’t fond of showing their… well you know!

Blast from the past Phantomflex provided the solution (as if you all hadn’t guessed).

Lilyatwt – Not An Anagram (Despite Her Behaviour…)

Posted in Uncategorized on August 27, 2015 by themaresnest

Another day on the EA forum with another hyperdefensive Simmer having problems.

the saga of lilyatwt

‘I’m a 60 year old woman so don’t you dare insult my intelligence and computer knowledge.’

Oh yummy, a nice juicy granny! ***rings dinner triangle for the Jazz-Handers***

Igazor and TadOlson did their best to help:

the saga of lilyatwt 1

The strange part is that if she’s been having problems with her game, she’s not been exactly very forthcoming about it, having been registered on the EA forum since June 2011 and posting certainly since that December:

the saga of lilyatwt 2

For those wondering about her name, it’s not an anagram of Lily Twat, but a reference to the old US TV series ‘As The World Turns’ character of Lily Walsh.

From what we’ve researched, she’s a bit of a ‘special’ sort – think MadameLee when she hits her 60s and the doctors have given her enough happy pills to make her civilised without being gaga.

She actually has a WordPress blog called Sidewalk Movement that she abandoned back in 2013 – our favourite line (concerning her dog walking-training battles with her sister was this:

the saga of lilyatwt 3

This could be the Barbara Woodhouse the 21st century demands and deserves!

Although this one about her feud with her sister’s husband was equally illuminating:

the saga of lilyatwt 4

You see Bookygirl, you thought you were foul mouthed but really you’re just being retro!

the saga of lilyatwt 5

When it all gets too much for Lilyatwt, she likes nothing better as you can see than popping pills before spending time preoccupied with her clematis, admiring when it has grown to its maximum and posting photos of it and its surrounding bush on her blog.

Ah well, it takes all sorts we suppose!

Fear The Walking Dead? Fear The Pissed Off Vidkid20 More Like It!

Posted in Uncategorized on August 26, 2015 by themaresnest

On the EA forum, SimsLuvr90 has been trying to start discussions on the spinoff prequal to everyone’s favourite late night whilst getting pissed On Demand bingeathon…

… okay, okay, along with Game Of Thrones, American Horror Story and True Blood.

simsluvr90 on fear the walking dead

As you can see, save for Kiwi_Berry_Mangp, she’s not had many takers.

simsluvr90 on fear the walking dead 1

Which if Viddie’s reaction over at Vidkid20’s Sim Lair is anything to go by is hardly a surprise, as it appears it’s the scripts which are undead rather than the characters!

simsluvr90 on fear the walking dead 2

Yes folks, it’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer time all over again – ultra successful show develops spin-off syndrome in the bit to squeeze some more return out of the initial investment at the behest of the advertisers, but the public vote with their feet and despite ‘special guest’ appearences the new short flops.

As Viddie put it, it’s all down to a manner of not treating the public like morons who will back anything lying around the studio dustbin so long as it is plagerising the original.

Inna Minnit Is The Giddy Limit

Posted in Uncategorized on August 25, 2015 by themaresnest

Oh wonderful, a brand new bumnugget trying to tell Simmers in the Sims 3 section of the EA forum that Sims 4 isn’t a whale of fail…

inna minnit is the limit

Moonandsixpens gave a very good broadbrush overview (dodgy spelling of rabbit aside…) of what makes Sims 3 stand out from its woeful ‘successor’.

inna minnit is the limit 1

The strange part is that it was only after IreneSwift and SimKeats elaborated on the points Moonandsixpens touched up….

inna minnit is the limit 2

… that Inna Minnit only chose to pick up on their posts, largely ignoring what they said for pedantism.

inna minnit is the limit 3

IreneSwift was not going to let our last wannabe flame warrior off so lightly:

inna minnit is the limit 4

Once again, they ignored finding their arguments being torn to shreds and instead decided to try flaming the less patience Windely:

inna minnit is the limit 5

‘And I just see the riding in the car as another loading screen.’

manul says what is this FAIL above me

Cue a most elegant rebuff from Moonandsixpens (did they have three Shredded Wheat this morning or something?):

inna minnit is the limit 6

bravo  bravo

Along with Sindocat and JoAnne65 sending our wannabe flame warrior packing.

inna minnit is the limit 7

‘Really? So, how’s school?’

slaplol  thumb

Yes, this had all the hallmarks of some kid bored already with being back at school taking out their frustrations instead of getting on with their new term’s homework – but well handled by all!
