wow, a little bit of suspension work goes a long way on an R8!
Suspension installed and ride height set. Time for the owner to go put this stunning R8 to use!

when in doubt, listen to The Dark Shadows's cover of Portishead's "Sour Times" and dance. it'll be OK.

Bethesda should have waited until after St. Patrick's Day to fix the Institute's green water bug! this was just a bug in the High-Res Texture Pack, and the previous update fixed it right before this green-tinted holiday.

+Chaz Morris's post brought up something i occasionally like to think about: what music would likely develop in post-war Fallout? it would take awhile, since so much musical tradition was lost and people are working more on surviving than creating art. once cultural change sets in, though, what would new music sound like?

there's some general assumptions i make:
- new music (not just traditional styles, e.g. Magnolia) will develop in settlements and cities, because that's where you're safe enough to do something artistic.
- old music is accessible in these settlements and cities via trade and radio stations.
- this old music is likely to be what was popular pre-divergence; few obscure styles would have survived to become tradition.
- musical equipment will be scarce, from instruments to audio production gear, because it's after a freakin' apocalypse.
- musical talent will also be scarce, and specifically the skills to play instruments.
- musicians will likely be solo or very small bands, because of all of the above.

because of this, i think there's a few strong paths of development:
- electric blues and psychobilly: blues and rockabilly were pre-divergence musical styles that survived to be played on the radio. the rough production of electric blues and old psychobilly would fit with the scarce equipment, and post-apocalyptic life would fuel the typically raw subject matter. this is kinda where Red Eye was heading in Nuka-World.
- 1960's garage rock and proto-punk as a stripped-down styles descended from rockabilly and blues, accessible to small groups with crappy equipment and minimal musical training.
- electro/house-swing and turntablism as musical styles directly built on found audio that can be created just with audio production equipment. much like the development of hip-hop in the poor projects of Harlem, i can imagine some kid messing with audio gear in New Reno or Goodneighbor and turning out a Peggy Lee remix.
