Telltale Cribs!

[I Accidentally posted this in Forum Games an hour or so ago, but I figured it would be easier for me to just repost it here than wait for a moderator to notice and move it. So yeah, there's a thread in Forum Games that needs deleting >.>]

"Cribs" is a word we hip folk use to mean habitat. Just to let you know.

So, we've got a desktop thread, now it's time for a thread where you can post your actual desktop so we can see where you all fall on the ten-point-slob-rating. Just post pictures of your room, home, office, whatever.

If you want, you can post a video of you walking around and awkwardly saying stupid things like "um, so, uh... this is, like... my bed... um... it's kinda warm, I guess". People did that on another forum I used to go to a couple of years ago, it was pretty funny.

Without further inane rambling, here's my room:

crib1.png

This is my desk.

1. I use an HDTV as my computer screen as well as my TV screen. It was only about £30 because the audio jack was broken. Little did they know, I wasn't planning on using the audio jack! Muhahaha!

2. This is where most of my food goes.

3. Incidentally, this is where most of my drink goes.

4. This is the laptop I use as a computer. It's pretty awesome. If by awesome you mean terrible. I also have the whole multi-monitor thing going on at the moment, but I don't usually use that. It's too much hassle to set up (did I mention my computer was terrible?).

The view you'd get if you walked in on me trying out my invisibility cloak. Aawkwaard.

1. This is my chair. I use it for sitting and spinning. Like most of my crap, it's had one previous owner.

2. I blu-tacked a load of notes on my wall for the psychology course I'm doing at college. Hopefully this will mean I don't fail too hard.

3. A Megaman X poster.

4. This little wooden guy doesn't have a name. Name him! Name him or I lose your respect!

5. This is where I keep hefty amounts of crap. At the moment, there's the pen for my Wacom tablet, half a milkshake, two remote controls, my wallet, a stapler, a hole-punch, a kazoo, some scissors, some loose change, the plastic vacuum pack thingy my headphones came in, a super important top secret letter from the government and a screen cleaner.

6. Yeah, my laptop is a Compaq. Meh, it get's the job done. Really badly.

Where I sleep.

1. This is my window. It's not usually an ominous pool of light; I think that was the camera's doing.

2. Yeah, I have a Stylophone on my windowsill. Sup.

3. The patchiness of my wall makes it look like I'm living in the midst of some sort of warzone. I'm not. I'm, like, 60% sure I'm not. I don't look out of the window very often.

4. An empty coke bottle. Why not?

5. Various DVDs, books and ransom notes.

6. A pile of various pieces of paper and other crap I should sort out.

7. A USB cable. Again, why not?

8. An invisible Pelican lives in my bed. I kid you not.

9. My radio alarm clock makes all manner of crazy ass noises while I'm trying to sleep. I've tried all sorts of things to shut it up. Well, I actually haven't tried anything... maybe I should?

crib4.png

The most cluttered, un-lived-in corner of my room.

1. I wear a green hoody pretty often. If you ever see someone wearing a green hoody, it's probably me.

2. I got this little dinosaur toy in a Happy Meal a couple of weeks ago. Its head spins. It's probably the coolest thing I've ever owned.

3. I have all sorts of crap pinned to my wall. Don't really know what any of it is...

4. Socks!

5. There's a wardrobe right opposite this pile of clothes. Hmm.

6. I still have quite a few videos. Remember videos? Videos were awesome.

7. More unsorted paper. I thought everything was supposed to be digital these days?

crib5.png

The least interesting part of my room.

1. Narnia.

2. The exit.

3. My radiator makes super weird noises. I'm pretty sure the solution is to kick it relentlessly.

This is the view from my window. What a pretty garden.

Let the posting commence!

  • A lot of you guys have pretty cool rooms. If I ever get the desire to clean up my apartment, I'll contribute! lol

  • I was going to resurrect the prints thread for this, but I liked this thread as well, and the Paper Mario was the deciding factor. So now that I'm done putting things on my walls and have electricity for some lighting in here, here's a couple more pictures of my room.

  • I see you haven't fixed your frames. I admire you so.

  • Is that whiteboard dedicated to anime?

  • @Avistew said: I see you haven't fixed your frames. I admire you so.

    There's no possible way that I can make the frames work with the stripes. So they're spaced evenly along the stretch of wall I have available, between my bookcase and the corner.

    @Avistew said: Is that whiteboard dedicated to anime?

    Nope. At the time, it had a list of games I was working on, games I was planning on playing next, and a game wish list, as well as a diagram of the parts I needed for my BLU Spy costume. Here's what it looks like now.

    Largely the same on the right, mostly unused on the left. And the crazy number of comics on it is starting to get on my nerves.

  • @Nintomster said: I'll post mine later. If I can be bothered.

    And, er, after a year, here are the pictures!

    Yeah. A wall. Just showing off the MI Art Wall. The top part of the wall is empty, I plan to fill that up with more posters. TT ones preferebly.

    [ATTACH]2710[/ATTACH]
    Here is my setup. More posters, and other TT merch. Also: Catbus! There was no space beside my TV for the Wii, so I just put it on my desk.

    [ATTACH]2711[/ATTACH]
    The bookcases are the end of my computer area, and are home to my collection of Simpsons, Futurama and Family Guy boxsets. At the top is my manga, web comic etc. collection too. And below are the TT DVDs. I've got empty shelves just for the time I need more space for the books or DVDs. Which may be quite some time.

    [ATTACH]2712[/ATTACH]
    My gaming corner. It's rather tiny now that I think about it.

    [ATTACH]2713[/ATTACH]
    And lastly, my bed, with more posters. Oh, and a fez. Because they're awesome! Just at the foot of the bed is my cupboard. Sliding doors, with mirrors. The view out my window isn't great, infact all I can see from my chair here is the side of a house.

  • You guys have such large rooms!! :O

    My room is literally, 2 beds (with ladders), an overflowing wardrobe, a chair, and a desk with a TV and computer.

    jl5js5.png

    There is literally no room to move in there!

    I share my room with my little bro you see, so its even worse! XD
    (Two full grown people sharing a small room. And one of them basically lives in there! (not me actually (I think it gets too hot in there))

    I may take some photos later, but basically my gaming layout is:

    - Living Room that has the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3 and Laptop
    - Kitchen has a PC, that is really out of date, (and glitchy)
    - Conservatory that has a Arcade machine standing next to a broken fridge! XD
    - Me and my little bros bedroom, which has the Snes, Mega Drive, another outdated PC, and another PS3 (this one is for DVDs and Bluerays)

  • My room is 8x9. lol I have my PS3, PS2, DVD player, laptop, CD shelving, bed, dresser, 2 TVs(32" and 18"), night stand in there. I tend to sit on the floor. My PC is in the basement and my neglected wii is in the livingroom(DVDs are in my basement.....umm I have....too many). My bedroom is an entertainment multitasking wet dream :P

  • I can't take good pictures of my room because it's too small, so I'm so close to anything I want to take a picture of that you only see a portion of it... But I'll try making a video sometime next week probably.

    Here are my brand new CA digs- or at least the bedroom. I'll show you guys the whole place another time. I share the apartment with only one other person, and I swear the closet is bigger than my room back home. (Even my Japanese apartment was bigger than the space I lived in at my parents' place, and I lived in freaking Tokyo.

    I'm still in the process of decorating it, so don't mind the mess.
