8-Bit Decor wanted.

The move to the new flat is happening very soon.  Renovations have begun and according to Pao, there's a huge chance that the place will be all ready by the end of the month.  It is very hard to explain how excited I am for this! 

One of the biggest things I want to find a way to do is to have 8-bit decor somehow in the house.  While the easiest way to do this is via posters or to actually paint the walls, part of me can't help but want to find a way that such decor can be either interactive or adaptive.  With my Egg determined to have a whiteboard on the wall (think The Big Bang Theory!) I feel very tempted to search for 1x1 colored magnets to use as "pixels" to create myself some pixel art.  Sadly, I have no idea of any place that sells magnets in that size and color for cheap.

Another part of me is tempted to create a plastic-covered wall on one end of the house, then either have numerous plastic sleeves where the paper pixels could be slid into, or have the plastic "whiteboard marker" friendly to be able to have drawings and the like done on it.

Gah! The ideas!  The dreams!
I can't wait!

One thing is for certain:  Egg and I are definitely excited about this chapter that is slowly coming into focus in our lives. 

Gonna keep you all updated, my friends!


  1. Are you moving into Pao's building? Is it pornished or non pornised?

  2. Let me know if you guys need anything.

  3. Not furnished yet. In my dreams, me and Egg find TETRIS and LEGO furniture to use.



    Frankly, Egg and I have been tremendously flattered by the outpouring of support and willingness of our friends to help us in our move. Definitely gonna celebrate with you all once we're settled in! THANK YOU!

    No doubt about it, this is all meant to be!

  5. if you really want the magnets & metal wall, then i suggest you check out True Value or ACE hardware, they have packs of magnets in different colors but they get kinda expensive. you can also order magnets cheap from ebay, we use really strong neodymium magnets for our armor and stuff and a pack of 20 small magnets only cost P500. then you can paint them any color.

  6. According to Jovan, "everything is possible with craft foam."

  7. Tobie, you owe me a rendition of Careless Wizper

  8. Basta as soon as you move in, HOUSE WARMING PARTY! :D

  9. Sige will look into that possibility.
    The cheaper the better of course.

  10. OOoh! Sige, Paul, gawan ninyo ako ng DUYAN!!!!

  11. OMG! Hahahhaah!


    Or Dancing?


  12. Definitely! We might be forced to host around five nga eh.

    One of the O bar girls.
    One for the geeks.
    One for Rocky's groupies.
    One for my family.
    And one for his family.

  13. Singing or dancing whichever you like but you have to wear...red bandana

  14. 8-bit decor? first time ko madinig yun ah... but based on context clues, i think i get it... worse comes to worse, you can use post-its till you get the real thing LOLz

  15. eto ba yung mga nagtitinda ng roses sa labas?!

  16. weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh
    yun lang masasabi ko for now
    pero syempre sana magawa mo
    lahat ng dreams mo sa bagong
    place mo... hehehehehehehhe
    oo nga pala, whats 8-bit decor?

  17. No, those are the rOse girls.
    The O Girls are the girls I hang out with sa O bar.

  18. But those, long term, get messy! The sticky stuff leaves dirt.

  19. Ooooh!

    Sadly, I am not willing to pay.
    Tee hee!

  20. Basically, decor inspired or based on the 8-bit games such as Super Mario Brothers, Mega Man, Castlevania, etc.
