Another Burner Burned – The Sad Tale of Gohliad And Eirflower

Posted in Uncategorized on March 17, 2017 by themaresnest

If there’s one certain rule of the internet, it’s that if you carry out a completely one-sided vendetta against an individual, sooner or later it’s going to come back and bite you.

Today’s example kicked off – where else? – at Sim Secret, which has been to the Dimblr section of the Simming community more trouble than it’s been worth:

Yes, because Simming community burn books have such a habit of working out for the best don’t they, as KawaiiDulce/Gatorade3 aka Jamey Durrant found out back in 2013.

Now granted, their target in question is a graduate of the Donald Trump school of tact and diplomacy…

But anyway, there was certainly enough dirt being dished out, albeit in such a badly presented slapdash manner the reader was left trying to piece together the pertinent points themselves half the time: the main one being their lack of manners towards a community they went begging for money from shortly after.

Now having burned their boats under their old name, they decided to publicly do one last bit of diva-ing before changing their name, but not it appears their behaviour:

From Gohliad to Servobride, old whine in a new bottle:

Now that last part on February 28th was what appeared to have been the tipping point behind all this ire, for a mere five days earlier…

Not helped by this:

Suffice to say this went down like a lead balloon, and was responded to in much the same way as before:

But back to Sim Secret, where a certain FloweyTheFlower had a lot to say for themselves about these matters:

Someone whom had only first appeared on LiveJournal (where Sim Secret is stored) the previous day of 3th March:

One week later, and it all backfired – big time!

Now the strange part was that Sim Secret had one of their having their cake and eating it moments – refusing to publish it in that week’s list of secrets, but having it in the unpublished section, under a frankly unbelievable excuse:

But hang on Prah2010 – only a week earlier you thought it perfectly okay for someone to post up a link to a Dimblr that did nothing but crucify an admittedly nasty piece of work. What the plumbobs did that have to do with the Sims?

Incidentally, although the author of the yellow Dimblr was quick to deny Eirflower was behind all this, the reaction to the revelations…

…was rather telling!

Hardly surprising, as with it being them of all people the hypocrisy was astounding:

That ‘buy me a coffee’ linked straight to this:

After a few days of radio silence, it came back up with an ever increasingly implausible series of life disasters to account for their absence:

So they’ve had their laptop stolen, been in hospital, and when the sympathy wasn’t forthcoming they played the trans card, for all the good it has done them:

Meanwhile in the middle of all this, the Gohburnbook continues.

This, best beloved, is a story that is not going to end well…

Not Kev Hopper Again!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 13, 2017 by themaresnest

Sorry, but we’re morally obliged to mention this one after spotting it by chance:

He’s gone and uploaded today the entire of the remaster of his 2015 album for everyone to hear and see if they want it.

If you want to get it, or individual tracks thereafter, you can go to his Bandcamp page.

(There are of course ways of copying tracks on Bandcamp down as MP3s, but as you can choose how much you want to pay for it there’s no real point, is there?)

First listen through, one of us likes it since they’re in an experimental music mood brought on by excessive listening to old Creatures CDs they acquired after their full blown Siouxsie and the Banshees back catalogue freak out from last year after their shenannigans at London’s Horniman Museum (long story, but to be concise one of us is involved in a quest to find the legendary lost statue that fronted the ‘Juju’ album, which may – or may not be – still buried in their basement archives thirty six years after inspiring one of the most influential popular music albums of all time… yeah, so much for that being concise shit, eh?!).

Your humble narrator however thinks Kev Hopper’s done better: it sounds too much like 1970s British TV drama incidental music.

‘Music For Main Character Walking Along Street Where They Encounter Something Interesting’…

‘Music For Housewife Making The Kids Dinner Awaiting Their Return From School When She Remembers Something Little Johnny Said At Breakfast That Causes Her To Have An Epiphany About The Way Her Loving Husband Has Never Forgiven The Next Door Neighbour For Winning The Church Raffle’…

‘Music For Housewife Wanking Off Geoffrey From The Gas Board Coming (Literally) To Read Your Meter’…

… whoops sorry, straying into Robin effing Asquith ‘Confessions Of’ territory there.

Blame it on listening as this is being typed to Belle And Sebastian’s Dear Catastrophe Waitress album – the point where nice Mr Born Again Christian Stuart Murdoch banged his head and decided cheesy early 1970s sexism and objectification of women was what The Kids wanted – from the ‘babelicious’ artwork to the utter cringefest videos for ‘Step Into My Office Baby‘ (Orchestral Manouevres In The Dark were crucified for less for ‘Tesla Girls‘, for plumbob’s sake!) and ‘Wrapped Up In Books‘ (wrapped up in boots and a mini skirt more like it. Little more than a B&S nerd fap video for Alexandra Klobouk – who started appearing in just about everything the band did mediawise at this point for no other reason than as eye candy. For the love of plumbob Bookygirl and Gitte2001 don’t watch it or you’ll not get anything done all week!).

Anyway, have a listen to it and see for yourself – and thank you Mr Hopper for being good enough to let us all have a free listen.

P.S. For the person who asked, no, Alexandra Klobouk is not the same girl who starred in the famous Elton John video for ‘Nikita‘ (which had much the same impact in Warsaw Pact nations as the Beatles earlier ‘Back In The U.S.S.R.’) – she was only two years old at the time! – although yes they do look very much alike now you come to mention it.


That girl was Anya Major, also famous for starring in the very first TV commercial for the very first Apple Mac. Every day a school day, eh?

Caught In Print: The Guardian Newspaper’s Epic FAIL! (Get ‘Em, Manul The Pallas Cat!)

Posted in Uncategorized on March 11, 2017 by themaresnest

Yes, nothing to do with Simming, but there’s no way we at The Mare’s Nest of all places could allow this open goal to pass us by:

‘Caught on camera, the elusive snow leopard.’


Suffice to say whilst the online edition was corrected swiftly enough, the print version could not so easily be recalled.

We’d be a bit kinder to The Guardian (the former ‘liberal’ newspaper which now merely exists to instruct bleedheart lefties and social justice warriors what is fashionable amongst the pseudo-intelligentia to ‘think’…) if it wasn’t for its habit of trying to intellectualise the shittiness of online trolls, ‘oh the poor dears have problems needing resolved’. Nope, there is no difference between today’s trolls and yesteryear’s poison pen letter writers. They do it because they can get away with it mainly without repercussions (not least of all not being thumped!), and in the case of the internet because they get to gloat in viewing the unhappiness their handiwork causes. End of.

That and the fact you have to be really bloody stupid to be unable to tell the difference between a tiny Pallas’ cat and a big old snow leopard.

Okay, one weighs up to one hundred and fifty eight ounces, the other is an Ounce!


So without further ado…
