Landgraab — Fall 01

- Oceanside Sims, Update


“Keeping Up With The Landgraabs”

Warnings: bribery, shirtless Rocky Kotsomiti, messy Malcolm, sims that won’t take no for an answer, and a naked bum.

Previously on The Oceanside Project: The Landgraabs

Wednesday, Day 10
“Moving On Up”

LandgraabF01 006

The Landgraabs, the wealthiest family in Oceanside, outgrew their tiny condo last season. They challenged builder Fitz Biltmore to create a lovely mansion on Landgraab Lake worthy of a Landgraab yet still befitting the “Oceanside style.” Landgraab Manor was Biltmore’s answer and today is move-in day!

LandgraabF01 083

Vivian Landgraab, town treasurer and banker, is the first inside the new home. She immediately brings infant Tabitha to her new room that she shares with her sister.

LandgraabF01 085

Politician Malcolm X is next with Tabitha’s twin Malcolm Moneywell Landgraab. Little Malcolm has a room all to himself on the second floor.

LandgraabF01 082

The Landgraab’s eldest child, Gwyneth, is free to roam the manor at her leisure.

LandgraabF01 088

Being the social butterfly that she is, Vivian has to be a member of every social club that exists in Oceanside. When she found out that the Garden Club was a real thing she knew she had to do whatever it takes to join. Now that she has the best house in town — with the best landscaping — she knows she will be a shoe-in for the snooty Garden Club!

LandgraabF01 094

While Viv tidies-up the front entry for the Garden Club’s inspection, Malcolm is…
Hey, where is Malcolm?

LandgraabF01 095

LandgraabF01 096

He’s upstairs playing with the remote-controlled car that Viv stole from Oceanside Customs like the man-child that he is!

LandgraabF01 097

Hark! Who goes there? Why, it is the hair-flipping King of the Garden Club, Rocky Kotsomiti!!

LandgraabF01 098

Viv wastes no time dilly-dallying and asks Rocky for a membership straight away.

LandgraabF01 102

Hey, if you approve Vivian for membership maybe she’ll let you live in her old condo now that Noelee moved in with Yasmin?

LandgraabF01 101

Rocky: Garden Club, Assemble!

LandgraabF01 103

Enter the Garden Club Mod Squad of Heaven Gallo and Bruce Jelleff! (OK, Angie isn’t part of the Garden Club. She was just walking by but she looks rad in this shot!)

LandgraabF01 104

Rocky: Let’s inspect this mug!

LandgraabF01 105

Heaven checks out the topiaries…

LandgraabF01 111

Bruce examines the white roses…

LandgraabF01 109

and Rocky — what the hell are you doing, Rocky? You’re not supposed to be swimming during the inspection!

LandgraabF01 114

LandgraabF01 115

Some kind of way Rocky swam to the Landgraab’s boat and climbed aboard to inspect it!
*shit I didn’t know was possible #852*


LandgraabF01 112

Nursing… Like a Boss.

LandgraabF01 122

Gwyneth found the activity table and did a victory dance after finishing her first drawing.

LandgraabF01 118

Malcolm finally greets Nanny Angie Killeen who has been lurking outside…

LandgraabF01 123

and Scientist Achilles Brook.

LandgraabF01 124


LandgraabF01 132

Rocky pretty much just supervises what the other GC inspectors are doing while walking around shirtless and tossing his mane.

LandgraabF01 133

Achilles heads inside to christen the pool table.

LandgraabF01 136

Now that Angie has the future Mayor all to herself she can talk to him about the laws she would like put into place in Oceanside. Laws like hiring a social worker to look out for the welfare of the mistreated children, and making adult/teen woohoo against the law.

LandgraabF01 140

Malcolm: Yeah, that’s all very interesting but did you hear there’s a burglar running lose? Catching her is the highest priority! She might try to shoot us!

LandgraabF01 150

Rocky catches Heaven inspecting the ELECTRICAL BOXES! If Vivian gets approved we know it will be because she bribed the Garden Club! Electrical boxes are not landscaping!

LandgraabF01 152

Malcolm prepares lunch for the guests of the manor.

LandgraabF01 155

LandgraabF01 156

I guess money (and the promise of a roof over your head) can buy anything. Welcome to the Garden Club, Viv!

LandgraabF01 168

Malcolm and guests sit down for lunch meat sandwiches…

LandgraabF01 169

LandgraabF01 170

while the girls finish their lunch.

LandgraabF01 176

When mechanic Connor Firestone

LandgraabF01 179

and farmer Owen Goodacre show up…

LandgraabF01 180

Viv thinks it’s a good time to head down to the Oceanside Bank & Loan and check on things.

LandgraabF01 182

She has the royal wave down pat.

LandgraabF01 188

Before she leaves I remember to cash all of the checks she has from the residents.

LandgraabF01 185

LandgraabF01 189

Good job, Viv!

LandgraabF01 191

LandgraabF01 192

Rocky and Bruce just can’t get enough of Vivian. They are the first to arrive at the bank.

LandgraabF01 193

The last customer is reviewer Beckett Graham. Let’s see what he thinks of Viv’s fine establishment.

LandgraabF01 197

Viv tries to help her Garden Club founder, but he still wants nothing of her pushy sales tactics.

LandgraabF01 200

Beckett is concerned, just like the other residents, about the rumored burglar running lose on the island. Even though he hasn’t many belonging in his cave, he wants to protect what little he has. Viv has just the thing for him!

LandgraabF01 202

A safe!

LandgraabF01 201

*Gold Star*

LandgraabF01 209

Beckett: That’s exactly what I need! But I don’t have any money. Can I pay you Tuesday for a safe today?

LandgraabF01 212

Vivian: *rages* What the hell did you come in here for if you’re broke? This is a bank not a swap meet!
Vivian Landgraab doesn’t fuck around when it comes to money, yo.

LandgraabF01 217

Beckett: *writes* She’s soooo mean!

LandgraabF01 227

LandgraabF01 228

Beckett continues on his endless loop of “I can’t find shit” which annoys Vivian and myself to no end.

LandgraabF01 234

Luckily Viv is nicer than I am and continues to help the penniless Beckett with a smile on her face.

LandgraabF01 235

Which works in her favor!

LandgraabF01 236

Of course she picks the money.

LandgraabF01 237

Viv has a customer with an expensive bag!!

LandgraabF01 240

She’s still terrible at the register but rings Bruce up in a somewhat timely manner.

LandgraabF01 244

I guess her pushiness paid off. Rocky is next to be rung up.

LandgraabF01 246

Beckett now has enough material for his column in Oceanside Today. How did Viv do?

LandgraabF01 247

LandgraabF01 248

Woot! All of that yelling at Beckett paid off. Vivian is the first resident to receive a Best of the Best award. Being a Landgraab really does have it’s privileges.

LandgraabF01 250

Vivian proudly displays her award on the wall with her first simoleon.

LandgraabF01 251

LandgraabF01 255

And she earns herself a bronze register badge. Everything is coming up Vivian today!

LandgraabF01 260

After the boys leave Viv restocks and heads home.

Back at the house…

LandgraabF01 266

The pool table has become the Landgraabs’ hot spot.

LandgraabF01 281

Malcolm greets doctor Minka Yomoshoto and Kent Healey. Please Kent, Matisse already lost one man to Minka — don’t you start too!

LandgraabF01 285

Another walk-by — this time seamstress Dawn Lambswool – Malcolm’s BFF.

LandgraabF01 288

Achilles rescues his girl Minka from the clutches of Kent…

LandgraabF01 290

and finally falls in love with her! Too bad she only has eyes for Diego…

LandgraabF01 291

LandgraabF01 292

The twins are stinky and hungry, as per usual.

LandgraabF01 295

While a talking Gwyneth demands attention from Connor.

LandgraabF01 312

LandgraabF01 315

LandgraabF01 316

Oh, Malcolm!

LandgraabF01 325

This is how it starts, Minka. Kent has long conversations with you and the next thing you know you’re making out with him! Just ask Matisse and Noelee!

LandgraabF01 338

Malcolm whips up Goopy Carbonara for dinner.

LandgraabF01 340

Oh Malcolm!

LandgraabF01 344

Dawn: The blue hats you ordered for you and Angie are ready to go! Do you need any more? Anybody else joining your fancy club? Like a local seamstress… Huh?
Minka: *totes ignores Dawn and keeps eating*

LandgraabF01 354

Viv is back from the bank however she misses out on the yummy Goopy Carbonara. A left-over sandwich is her dinner.

LandgraabF01 356

Since it was late, Malcolm says goodnight to his guests.

LandgraabF01 362

And puts Gwyn to bed.

LandgraabF01 371

Thursday, Day 11
“One Club Down, One To Go”

While her parents sleep peacefully…

LandgraabF01 002

LandgraabF01 006

LandgraabF01 010

LandgraabF01 015

Gwyn the escape artist roams free.

LandgraabF01 022

LandgraabF01 028

At dawn Tabitha and Little Malcolm awaken and are in need of changing.

LandgraabF01 031

LandgraabF01 030

LandgraabF01 032

A very stinky Gwyneth tries to clean herself the best way she can. Where is your father?

LandgraabF01 033

You did not drop you son on the ground so you could play with the car! Oh, Malcolm!

LandgraabF01 034

That’s better, sheesh!

LandgraabF01 036

LandgraabF01 039

After a diaper change and a feeding, Viv brings Bitsy (Viv’s nickname for Tabitha) to Little Malcolm’s room for brother/sister baby gym bonding time.

LandgraabF01 044

Gwyn needs to work on her friendships!

LandgraabF01 047

While Viv takes a long hot bath…

LandgraabF01 057

Malcolm burps out the breakfast he just made. Oh, Malcolm!

LandgraabF01 065

Soon it’s time for Malcolm to leave for work.
Vivian: Honey, if you get a promotion you can have some woohoo tonight!
Vivian Landgraab. Queen of The Bribes.

LandgraabF01 071

Malcolm drives off in Bullet, the car made for him by Connor.

LandgraabF01 075

Vivian sees Angie walking by and runs out to catch her. Not only can she help her with the kids today, Viv can also try to impress her so she can join the Blue Hat Society. So far it’s not going too well.
Vivian: …and if I join the Blue Hat Society we could play all kinds of games at meetings like Don’t Wake The Llama!
Angie: I HATE Don’t Wake The Llama. Dumbest game ever.

LandgraabF01 080

Viv leaves Angie alone to play a game she knows she likes…

LandgraabF01 077

while she does her chores around the house.

LandgraabF01 082

LandgraabF01 090

After a while Angie pitches in and helps with the cleaning…

LandgraabF01 099

and with the parenting.

LandgraabF01 095

LandgraabF01 103

Minka also stops by for a game of pool. Now Viv can schmooze the Blue Hats and maybe get an invite!

LandgraabF01 105

LandgraabF01 108

At lunch Minka gives Vivian the runaround every time she brings up the club. It’s like her bestie doesn’t want her to be in it. Viv is visibly shocked and offended.

LandgraabF01 116

Viv leaves the girls to talk and takes a quick shower.
Vivian: I don’t want to be in their stupid club anyway. Hmph!

LandgraabF01 118

Gwyneth: Why am I not potty trained yet!
Because your parents have better things to do with their lives than teach you the toddler skills. It’s better you learn this sooner rather than later.

LandgraabF01 119

Gwyneth: *cries in disgust*
There, there. Ask Angie. She loves you.

LandgraabF01 120

Angie and Minka: *besties!*

LandgraabF01 122

Vivian: *grumbles* Fuck those bitches.
Vivian! That’s no way for a lady to talk!

LandgraabF01 126


LandgraabF01 128

Malcolm: *struts* I think I was promised woohoo if I got a promotion, ahem!

LandgraabF01 137

Still pissed off, Vivian begrudgingly says good night to Minka and Angie.

LandgraabF01 138

Malcolm puts Gwyn to bed…

LandgraabF01 143

LandgraabF01 144

Then it’s feeding and bed time for the twins…

LandgraabF01 156

then Malcolm gets his reward.

Friday, Day 12
“The Mayor’s Ball”

LandgraabF01 019

LandgraabF01 021

LandgraabF01 027

In the wee hours of the morning Vivian begins teaching Gwyneth how to walk.

LandgraabF01 034

Sorry Beckett, no one cares if you are their friend or not.

LandgraabF01 040

At breakfast Vivian brings up an idea that she’s had all season. She really wants to have a housewarming party and show off their new mansion to the neighbors but she would like to do something more fancy. Malcolm loves the idea and they both decide to throw a ball at the house and to invite the whole neighborhood.

LandgraabF01 045

Then he proceeds to fart on his wife. ~Classy~

LandgraabF01 051

The couple takes a nap before their big night tonight…

LandgraabF01 055

and call Angie to watch the munchkins.

LandgraabF01 060

See, I told you Auntie Angie would help potty train you! She’s the only one that cares.

LandgraabF01 076

LandgraabF01 079

LandgraabF01 081

It’s almost party time! The elder Landgraabs pick out their finest formals for the event.

LandgraabF01 082

LandgraabF01 084

LandgraabF01 087

LandgraabF01 095

Viv takes a little bit longer to get ready. She has to pop all of those pimples before meeting her public.

LandgraabF01 101

As the guests arrive a certain unwanted guest is among them.
Sadie: Did you really think I would go anywhere without my Flour Sack Baby!?
I had really hoped that you would’ve left him at home.

LandgraabF01 102

Culinary hobbyist Paragon Barrett finds his teenage love, newsie Frankie Cloak, and gives her a huge hug.

LandgraabF01 105

Heaven and music and dance hobbyist Edwina Goddard are both quite appalled at the ass-grabbery from newsie Calvin O’Gill and tinkerer Abbot Moulden.

LandgraabF01 113

Priest Becca Goodacre seems to approve of cashier Cindy Lou Larsen and Angie sucking face.

LandgraabF01 115

Achilles flirts with Frankie right in front of Minka hoping to get some kind of reaction from her, but Minka is more concerned with Sadie’s mental well-being.

LandgraabF01 116

LandgraabF01 117

Vivian finally emerges with a chip and dip platter for her guests.

LandgraabF01 118

Connor and his wife, teacher Selena Firestone, sneak a quick kiss in the dining room. Watch out — it looks like Beckett is creepily watching you two.

LandgraabF01 120

Even though their relationship is a mess and they are barely on speaking terms, Matisse Troubadour goes in for a kiss with baby-daddy Diego Bossanova!

LandgraabF01 129

She is categorically denied!!

LandgraabF01 133

LandgraabF01 126

OK! She is making out with your man right in front of your face! Achilles should just pack up and move back into his cave. There is no love coming from Minka’s direction.

LandgraabF01 130

Natural scientist Yasmin Onnen and “roommate” driver Noelee Andrews have been all over each other since the ball started. Of course that doesn’t stop Kent from thinking he still has a chance with Noelee.

LandgraabF01 135


LandgraabF01 140

Even though things didn’t work out with Diego, Matisse feels they can still patch things up. Maybe even be friends again — at least for their daughter Cyan’s sake.

LandgraabF01 145

She’s still at it — which amuses chef George Lambswool and Paragon to no end.

LandgraabF01 151


LandgraabF01 152

Malcolm is worried about Sadie losing it at the Mayor’s Ball. This is supposed to be the lady that protects everyone from the evil burglar!
Malcolm: Do you need me to shake some sense into you! How can I promote you to a police officer if you’re carrying around a sack of flour and calling it your baby?! Sim up!!


LandgraabF01 154

Kent: You sure do look hot in that dress Noelee… Mmmm-hmmm!

LandgraabF01 155

Noelee: Would you mind getting the hell out of here so I can make out with my lady?!
Yasmin: *lol*


LandgraabF01 162

Calvin: Don’t feel bad. I’ll make out with you. *wink wink*
Kent: No, no, I’m good. Thanks.

LandgraabF01 164

LandgraabF01 166

LandgraabF01 168

LandgraabF01 169

Noelee: This fool is not going to try to hit on me again… is he?

LandgraabF01 173

Yep, he is.

LandgraabF01 177

LandgraabF01 178

I just love seeing mailman Lars Shadow in his formal wear.

LandgraabF01 184

Dude! Seriously?

LandgraabF01 186

Noelee: Look Kent, you were fun to make out with but I. DO NOT. WANT YOU! Go find your girlfriend and LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE!!!!

LandgraabF01 192


LandgraabF01 190

Sadie straightened up a bit and reminded herself she was at a party with her main squeeze Fitz. Hopefully that sack of flour is gone for the evening.

LandgraabF01 199

Vivian: *giggles* Malcolm is cooking the dinner for everyone.
Matisse: Oh no! *giggles*

LandgraabF01 202

Vivian: Let’s hope he doesn’t burn it like he did that oatmeal!
Matisse: *laughs*


LandgraabF01 214

Matisse finally makes her way to her boyfriend, rescuing him from Noelee’s wrath in the process.

LandgraabF01 229

LandgraabF01 237

I’m still really creeped out how Achilles and Paragon keep passing Frankie back and forth. Ick.

LandgraabF01 241

Even though Kendrick is the musician in the family, Matisse looks very elegant tickling the ivories during the party.

LandgraabF01 245

Malcolm begins serving dinner (which he did not burn, TYVM!)

LandgraabF01 253

However Vivian soon realizes that the food will run out very quickly. She orders buffet trays and sets them out on the back patio.

LandgraabF01 248

LandgraabF01 256

LandgraabF01 259

LandgraabF01 261

Minka hides away in Malcolm’s office to eat alone when someone else comes in to sit with her… Can Minka and Brodie have a civil dinner together?

LandgraabF01 263

Heaven and other GC member Tiara Hough are also anti-social and eat in the Tea Room.

LandgraabF01 271

LandgraabF01 276

Selena is so nice. She tips Matisse’s horrible piano playing even though she’s not there anymore.

LandgraabF01 281

What the heck do you have against Selena, Beckett?

LandgraabF01 283

Finally! The first annual Mayor’s Ball was a success!

LandgraabF01 290

LandgraabF01 294

After the party Malcolm attends to his poor, forgotten children.

LandgraabF01 298

And Vivian happily cleans up all of the mess.

LandgraabF01 005

Saturday, Day 13
“Transition Day”

LandgraabF01 006

LandgraabF01 011

LandgraabF01 013

Malcolm is the first to rise and starts potty training Gwyneth. Boy does she have a long way to go!

LandgraabF01 018

Malcolm studies in his office before work.

LandgraabF01 019

Creeper Frankie peeks through the window as she delivers the morning paper.
Frankie: *sings* I wish I could be part of your wooooorld.

LandgraabF01 020

LandgraabF01 023

LandgraabF01 034

Vivian calls all of their friends and toddlers together for the twins’ birthday party.

LandgraabF01 051

Gavin Biltmore, Antonio Lambswool, and Aria Mason-Troubadour bust a move with the radio!

LandgraabF01 052

I… I don’t know what to say…

LandgraabF01 053

Malcolm’s grammar is about as good as mine. Better put it through the word processor!

LandgraabF01 054


LandgraabF01 056

Vivian makes sure Bitsy is clean and fed before bringing her down to the cake.

LandgraabF01 057

Minka finally has a chance to get Diego all to herself. She wastes no time letting him know how she feels. Diego is ecstatic.

LandgraabF01 062

With Malcolm still at work Matisse pitches in and brings Little Malcolm to the cake.

LandgraabF01 070

LandgraabF01 073

LandgraabF01 075

Then it’s Bitsy’s turn!

LandgraabF01 085

LandgraabF01 090

LandgraabF01 091

The celebration ends with a fancy dip kiss by Minka and Diego.

LandgraabF01 092

The toddlers are, of course, oblivious that two new members have joined their ranks.

LandgraabF01 102

Stop ruining my toddler OTP Heath Biltmore and Cyan Troubadour-Bossanova! You two are meant to be together!

LandgraabF01 107

Matisse and Dawn head to the hot tub.

LandgraabF01 110

And George tosses Gwyneth up into another atmosphere.

LandgraabF01 113

Time for Little Malcolm’s make-over!

LandgraabF01 119

LandgraabF01 120

Malcolm Moneywell Landgraab is an 8-8-6-6-7 Taurus with high interests in the paranormal and sci-fi (oh boy!). He shares a passion for fitness with his Mom. He’s a social butterfly like his father and a hopeless romantic like his mother.

LandgraabF01 124

All of the excitement from the day has left poor Malcolm all tuckered out. He collapses on the girls’ rug.

LandgraabF01 125

That Faith Goodacre is always smiling. Her sister Eve is still chewing on her fingers, I see.

LandgraabF01 127

LandgraabF01 130

Minka and Diego cannot keep their hands off of each other. I really don’t know what I’m going to do about these two!

LandgraabF01 133

Tabitha’s turn!

LandgraabF01 134

LandgraabF01 142

Tabitha is a 1(ouch!)-4-10-10-10 Sagittarius with high interests in sports, school and animals (and absolutely no interest in politics. Guess she won’t be filling her father’s shoes!). Her true hobby is nature. She has a good sense of humor like her dad but she’s a snob like her mom.

LandgraabF01 139

Yes! After those first two seasons of absolutely no promotions, Malcolm gets two during this one!

LandgraabF01 145

Malcolm: Is the “woohoo if I get a promotion” deal still valid?
Oh, Malcolm!

LandgraabF01 146

LandgraabF01 147

LandgraabF01 148

I’m not quite sure if the toddler guests are having a good time or not.

LandgraabF01 154

Sadie: I know Flour Sack Baby is having a good time! Aren’t you Sacky-wacky?


LandgraabF01 155

Oh my! I guess the offer was still valid.

LandgraabF01 157

No worries. The Bank of Oceanside can stand to lose a little one day. Let’s not make this a habit.

LandgraabF01 160

Bitsy seems a bit unsure of having her first huggle with Heath Biltmore. What would her parents say?

LandgraabF01 162

Oh, what the heck. Huggle away!

LandgraabF01 161

Even with the woohoo? Still a snoozer?

LandgraabF01 164

LandgraabF01 169

Bitsy looks a lot like Vivian.

LandgraabF01 170

LandgraabF01 176

Viv puts Bitsy down for a nap.

LandgraabF01 177

LandgraabF01 179

While Little Malcolm eats the girls’ dolls.

LandgraabF01 186

LandgraabF01 189

Viv’s mind is still on the Blue Hat Society. She can’t stand the fact that there’s a club she can’t get in. She needs to figure out some kind of scheme in order to become a member. But she’ll think about that tomorrow.

LandgraabF01 199

Because tomorrow is another day.

LandgraabF01 236

Notes: I meant to have a Welcome Wagon get-together and totally spaced. Will do on the next Landgraab update. Thankfully all of the woohoo never led to chimes… Woot!

Thank you for reading! ^.^
