I gave up on the memory card, it's faulty, and I don't currently have another I can play with. So. Here's the end of it.

Apparently, I live in a goddamn cave with shit for lighting. My camcorder won't work, so I've done the best I can with my camera, which is so old it takes floppies.

The finished console in the dark, showing the EL panel under the X-Files cutout.

The sound-activated LEDs. They glow a bit while playing in the dark, but they aren't all that visible, really.

Here's what it actually looks like. It's a flawless matte black finish, but I had to use the flash, and it picks up every speck of dust. I have over 60 hours in just sanding and repainting, so I KNOW it's flawless.

This is the matching controller. It's been painted with a matte finish, the buttons have all been repainted, and the LEDs changed to green. The right buttons are 9mm bullet shells, the exact type Mulder and Scully use. lol

Close-up of the buttons:

I can't do video, but if you are interested, I've got links to more pics, and some worklogs.

This is the latest teaser image.  The quote's from 5X09: Schizogeny.  It's one of the eps that takes place in Michigan, too.  Mulder's climbing a tree, and Scully's just ignoring him by that point.  All the parts I was waiting for came in yesterday, and last night was spent soldering and trying to figure out how it's all going to work.  Pics and more lackwit commentary under the cut.

And that brings me up to July 13.  I'm getting there.

So I'm picking up where I left off.  This is where I am as of June 26, the day the EL panel came.

This brings us up to June 30.  More next post.

Here are the worklogs for Codename: Mulder's Nipples.  It's a custom PlayStation console and controller.  I began it June 20, when I discovered that my PS2 slim wouldn't play "The X-Files" for the original PlayStation.  The project name came from an episode of Californication I'd watched at the time.  In the commentary, David Duchovny was rambling on about how fantastic his nipples looked in the nude scenes, and frankly, it brainwashed me. 

Let me show you Mulder's Nipples... )
