god i really need to bring more members to [livejournal.com profile] supercharitygo somehow. i really have no idea where to advertise or anything. i was thinking of doing a referral contest with ~real prizes~ but i dunno if i can... do that or not.

i dunno, man. i feel like a lame mod.

also i'm in such a shitty art slump so give me some requests or something, i guess. i can't promise they'll be any good, since i haven't drawn anything for weeks and weeks (not like they'd be good anyway ohhh)
i'll take the first... five. IF YOU WANT MORE/BETTER ONES YOU GOTTA DONATE TO CHARITY (seriously though it's like two dollars)
backupdump002: (louis grin)
without delving too deeply on a public entry, i just wanted to thank everyone for their kindness, understanding, and support. i expected the best out of you guys and i got it, and i think the fact that we're entering a day and age where people like me can actually DO that is something that's really amazing. you guys give me hope for the future. ♥ thanks.

in other news, last call for those dumb valentines. i dunno what i'll do for the unclaimed ones. keep 'em? or maybe just send bonus ones to people who requested? hmmm.
man i need to send the claimed ones out though. when did i get so shitty at mailing cards

so i got a new tablet, but it was all buggy so i'm gonna exchange it tomorrow today.
in the meantime, doodles [7] )

i've been plugging this everywhere, but this article on rape is the best i've ever read. it's extremely informative, has a very calm and clear (yet influential) tone, and is completely fair to everybody involved. it's an important article that everyone should read, so i strongly encourage you guys to plug it as well.

NOW I AM GOING TO BED
backupdump002: (Default)
LJ WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE (yeah i know it's a few hours late blow me)

anyway, i made valentines! since i don't have a tablet, i just used some flashcards and a super cheap set of markers, and it wound up working out better than they would've digitally (aside from occasionally not having just the right shade or something). i love how these look irl, but i'm really disappointed in how the colors look after scanning. even after tweaking, i still can't get them to look accurate. just pretend that the colors in this are like 999x better and more vibrant and stuff

valentines [14] )

anyway yeah I ALMOST DON'T WANT TO SEND THESE OUT (especially since i'm paranoid that they'll just get ripped up in the mail since that keeps happening), but i guess i'm not gonna do anything with 'em! so claim one here and pm your address, i guess (yeah even people who did that before, don't save these things). i'll even throw in a special gift :)

i thought i had more to say but i am so out of it right now omg i'm passing out goodnight

i have so many wips it's crazy

and [livejournal.com profile] dia_aren_marie tagged me! i think i'm supposed to do this on dA, but nobody watches my dA.

1. Post these rules
2. Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
5. No tag backs

can i think of 10 things??? )

i've been trying not to talk about this too much, but... the situation in texas has really gotten a lot worse. both my grandpa and step-grandma have cancer, and now my step-grandma has gotten a staph infection from one of her surgeries. it's so serious that they've had to keep her in the hospital and i think even quarantined, and apparently she only has a 50/50 chance of surviving. she hasn't done chemo yet, and now she CAN'T because it's too dangerous to do when she has this infection.
my grandpa... the doctor said there's a very good chance that they can get all the cancer in surgery, but that's what they said for joanne, so i'm just kinda... waiting for the results. i'm worried about him staying in the lakehouse after his surgery, though, because of the staph; i am really, really hoping that he stays at teresa's house or something until the lakehouse is cleaned up.

anyway, yeah, that's what's been going on over there. we'll just see how it goes, i guess.

edit: oh, god, right, uhh.
please check this out, as a way to triple your donations to the red cross' text donation system for haiti, and please keep an eye on [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti (dammit the auctioning thing is genius why didn't i think of that). i haven't managed to get in a donation to haiti yet, but it's something i want to do. i've been debating whether or not i ought to start up [livejournal.com profile] supercharitygo again; i kind of feel like starting it up so frequently is just going to thin the donations out, as well as turn people off of the whole idea. april seems like a long time to wait, though.
backupdump002: (cool........)

fuckin' amazing

anyway yeah i can type now, so yeah i hope everyone liked their gifts. sorry they were so rushed! i just wasn't really feeling it this year. like i mentioned, i'm probably not going to do the whole big christmas bonanza anymore; will probably just stick to cards from now on haha.

i had an AWESOME gift haul this year. i got a laptop!! i am still so psyched about it
i might have to exchange it though because the speakers are acting really weird (random, loud buzzing and such during songs, which apparently means something got jostled loose), and it also can't stay connected to wifi (keeps saying something about its adapter not working). apparently geek squad was going on and on to mom and sarah about how they mess with all the laptops before they send them out so they probably screwed something up
but yeah I'M SO HAPPY IT'S LIKE 50X BETTER THAN MY DESKTOP HAHA and already got all my spazzing out over twitter so everyone here is spared

also got an xbox 360 adapter from john, so my xbox is hooked to the internet! my s/n is Chump Slamchest so everyone add me
SPEAKING OF SCREENNAMES did i ever say my ro names?? i'm Mr. Saturn, Romano, and Furious Magician. i'm on furious a lot nowadays since he's fun to level, so. try pming me in valk sometime or something! WILL I RESPOND? POSSIBLY! (people on twitter probably have a leg up here)
also i have SO MANY SCREENSHOTS DATING BACK TO LIKE 2007 i need to post them

AAAAAAAAND

-HOTEL DUSK 2 CONFIRMED YES YES YES MAN BETWEEN THIS AND PERFECT PROSECUTOR I'M GONNA DIE
-drove for the first time a few days ago. a couple years late, but whatever. it was easy. need to take driver's ed.
hahaha i was perfectly calm the whole time, but mom was all freaked out (at least during the start). it probably didn't help that my reaction to making mistakes was just WHOOPS HAHAHA THAT WAS KINDA COOL
-john had his 31st birthday. looking forward to properly celebrating when he and sherah come up for thanksgiving!
-turns out that my step-grandma's breast cancer is worse than they thought, so she'll have to get a double-mastectomy. she'll still be fine, as far as anyone can tell, but it's a shame she has to go through all that. i hope she calls off the thanksgiving reunion since she really ought to just rest after that, but she's so stubborn. i dunno. we'll see.
-mom: they're not showing "this is it" anymore... i guess now it's "that was that."
-saw "men who stare at goats." it was hilarious and fun, and i kept thinking of psychonauts the whole time.

GOD THIS ENTRY IS CROWDED
backupdump002: (true patriots)
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN BOYS AND GIRLS GATHER AROUND BECAUSE IT'S TIME FOR HOLIDAY GIFTS SINCE I LIKE PUTTING THESE POSTS UP EARLY

old-timers already know how this goes and the new kids can probably figure it out, but just in case anyone forgot, it goes like this:
  • comment with an art request! fanart, original, whatever makes you happy (and it can be anything; there's no theme). everyone who comments only gets one request, BUT there's no limit to how many people can join.
  • ANYONE can request something, whether you're a ~best friend forever~ or a complete stranger.
  • raunchy stuff is just fine, but "pushing R" is kind of the limit. i'm not going to do explicit porn and violence okay this is the holidays my god
  • please don't request anything really complicated! just a few people doing something simple is fine. if you have an idea and aren't sure, just ask.
  • don't be shy i will not accept shyness in this household
  • BONUS: PICK TEN NUMBERS BETWEEN 1 AND... uhhhh... 7000. i am estimating 7000. i have no idea.
    EITHER WAY, DO THAT, BUT MAKE SURE NOBODY ELSE PICKED THE NUMBERS YOU DID. the number-choosing part always seems to throw people. JUST RELAAAX
  • POSSIBLE OTHER BONUS: CARDS!!! in which i take a piece of paper and fold it badly because i can't fold paper, draw horrible things all over it, write some schizophrenic message inside, and mail it to your house!!! your hoooouuusssee
    i say "possible" because i haven't asked the parents/gotten a PO box yet, so i'm not officially all geared up or anything. BUT anyone who's interested can just leave a note at the end ("P.S. WANT A CARD") and i'll get back to you later. i've sent out cards these past few years so i'm sure it'll all go over just fine, haha. also, people in other countries: don't worry about prices seriously it is so cheap to mail cards
  • YEAH YOU CAN HAVE A PIC AND BOTH BONUSES, GO NUTS
  • YOU'LL GET YOUR STUFF ON CHRISTMAS DAY (ASIDE FROM CARDS OBVIOUSLY)

    list/progress )

    THAT'S IT

    GO

    EDIT: CARDS ARE FINE SO ANYONE INTERESTED CAN GO AHEAD AND MAIL THEIR INFO TO BOGSWORTH@GMAIL.COM OR SEND A PM

    backupdump002: (DURR)
    hahaha whoops was i supposed to do an art post
    weeell, the only art-related thing i've done since the last post (aside from [livejournal.com profile] tigerboat and i pchatting WHICH I LOST A BIG CHUNK OF FFFF) is fixing up that pic of gumshoe and edgeworth. the dumb part is that i keep FEELING like drawing and i have plenty of ideas, but i just don't want to put in the effort. someone kick my ass seriously

    SO, i met [livejournal.com profile] wishwashing and her boyfriend a couple of days ago and saw zombieland, which is really really awesome. it was kinda like shaun of the dead, only in america and with less depressing scenes. I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND IT. tallahassee is seriously the greatest character ever.

    this is completely unrelated, but y'know what i hate
    i hate how the ~*sexy*~ look is to just either stare blankly at the camera or look all moody and serious or whatever. just, am i the only person who thinks people are 100x more attractive when they're happy and comfortable and don't look like they want to hurt me somehow

    OH OH OH BEFORE I FORGET i've been meaning to do a link post for ages, but i have so many links and i'm lazy, so i just threw a bunch of stuff all over delicious. SO, JUST GO CRAZY, I GUESS. i haven't even really gone through most of these.
    also, sorry for all the copious amounts of science stuff in the edumacational tag I WAS REALLY INTERESTED IN THAT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER.
    now i can finally check "link post" off my "posts i need to make" list. someday, i might even check off "sanitarium."

    NOW TELL ME WHAT CHARACTER I AM OR I'LL FEEL ALL LAME

    man, this week was a really off week for art. i just had zero motivation to draw anything, aaaand instead wound up playing video games, for the most part. it's soooort of come back today, though, so maybe next week will have more.

    anyway, art [5] )

    so, a couple of nights ago the electrical box thing in our backyard blew up and we had to call 911. everything was all right, but it startled the hell out of us since the lights just suddenly flickered and dimmed until they were nearly off and there was this ridiculously loud BZZZZZ noise, and when you looked out the downstairs windows it was just completely white everywhere. then the neighbor knocked on our door and told us our yard was on fire. OH.

    it wound up being a pretty minor thing, though; didn't even lose power (though the people behind us did hohoho). probably the best part was when the manly, mustachioed PSO guy showed up and wrestled with LIVE WIRES (WHILE THEY WERE SETTING FIRE TO THINGS) while making cool one-liners in a grizzly southern accent. the electronics were going crazy while he did that, too. IT WAS SO COOL though i'm glad i turned my computer off when i heard his truck

    tired of my sides killing me when i sit a certain way ow ow ow ow ow stop stop stop
    backupdump002: (WHERE'S MY BIRTHDAY CAAAKE)
    so, i've decided to try and start doing weekly art posts. i'm thinking that it'll (maybe??) encourage me to draw more, and will also help me keep tabs on my ART RIVALS that i eternally battle. watch as i forget about this whole thing immediately

    arts [16] )

    UHH I DUNNO WHAT ELSE TO SAY

    oh, i forgot to mention that i've been to TWO concerts, lately. one was jeffrey porter and skinfornia, and the other was jacob fred. both were really awesome. jeff porter was held at this tiny little liberal art museum that was very pleasant and comfortable, and the displays were like... well, they were all sorts of things, but the ones that stood out to me were the ones that supported lgbt--there were photos of gay couples, a poem about a transsexual couple, etc. it was really, really great to see those things in this city, especially considering that i was reading all this stuff the night before about how terrible lgbt discrimination is here, and how it's actually still legal for us to kick lgbt people out of their apartments/fire them from their jobs/deny them access to loads of public stuff/etc, just because they are who they are. so it was a relief to see some support there, even though it's small. gives me some hope.

    AND YEAH THE BAND WAS GOOD, HAHAHA i had no idea what to expect and it turned out it was tribal drums and stuff. it's not something i usually listen to, but i still really enjoyed it. jacob fred was, of course, great, and a little more up my alley. he just played at a club that was still small, but way bigger and louder than the museum. i felt like both bands tended to drag on a lot, though; i think more concise stuff would've had a bigger punch. but that's just me. i still liked them a lot.

    anyway, memes

    which chess piece am i omg )

    so, [livejournal.com profile] funkicarus started a sort of meme about art supplies and why you use them. i think i'll also borrow from [livejournal.com profile] zarla a bit in that i'll also talk about methods and stuff, since i barely put any thought into art supplies, hahaha
    BEHIND THE MAGICIAN'S CURTAIN )

    and finally, gotta do an anon meme every now and then:
    THE "i've always wanted to tell you" MEME
    backupdump002: (maybe he's born with it)
    for all the artists reading this: do you guys ever show your art to family? what kind (all of it, some of it)? i was just wondering, since every now and then i think about starting a little made-for-family gallery (in that it filters out some of the more bizarre things i tend to draw), but whenever i think about showing what i've drawn to family members (and even certain irl friends), i just... feel embarrassed. i dunno. maybe some of it's just that my family has been so supportive of it and act like i'm this really stellar artist all like YEAH I BET DOX CAN GET INTO ANY ART SCHOOL EVER NO PROBLEM when they haven't even SEEN my art since i was, like, nine, and i'm really just... average, at best. i guess i just don't know what they're expecting to see. i have no idea how i even GOT this reputation for being an amazing artist HAHAHA it's like i just say that i like to draw as a hobby and people assume all sorts of things
    but yeah, what does everyone else do
    (as a note, i'm talking more about extended family than immediate)

    so, john's situation got worse. he realized a while ago that the burglars also took his bag, which contained checkbooks, tax info, and his social security number, AND apparently this morning he came out to find someone had threw a rock through the window of sherah's car, because she accidentally left her phone in there. sherah also mentioned that a guy down the street got shot in the back the other night, and that the police told her that crime's been increasing and hasn't been this bad since the 90's or something like that. someone on facebook mentioned that the area he lives in kind of sucks in general, though; apparently people there have taken to just leaving their cars unlocked so they don't have to replace the windows.

    LONG STORY SHORT, JOHN IS TRYING TO SELL HIS HOUSE MORE THAN EVER AND IS NOW THINKING OF MOVING OUT OF SEATTLE AND TO OLYMPIA. he's been thinking of moving out of seattle for a while now, actually, and since he only goes into the office twice a week and sherah's college is in olympia, it'd work pretty well. we shall see.

    UNRELATED:

    i meant to post this before everyone on the internet had already seen it, but it's still incredible.

    Comment and I will comment back with a picture of the fictional character that most reminds me of you. Then post the same in your journal.

    I SUCK AT THESE THINGS BUT UHH SURE

    ahhh balls, i've been getting off my sleeping schedule. i've been off the melatonin for... most of this year, actually (and considering how much i depended on it since MIDDLE SCHOOL, this is a great feat), but maybe i'll go back on for a LITTLE while so i can actually wake up in the morning and shit. i'm tryin', man

    i want the new layton so bad! why does the tv have to keep playing commercials for it, dammit
    also why are the people in those commercials always drinking margaritas
    backupdump002: (i'm ~free~)
    COOL THINGS:
    -visiting [livejournal.com profile] wishwashing (and her new kitten)! funny people was weirdly depressing but i'm not an adam sandler fan so i managed just fine but it had MANY LAUGHS as well, so good stuff. i meant to bring no more heroes for our video gamery, but wound up leaving the disc in the wii at home, hahaha. ran all over the place in half-life, instead.
    i loved the fact that all the other birthday cards people gave her were really nice and had butterflies and puppies or whatever, while the one i gave was just an old guy in a thong

    -going to a paul mccartney concert! that was actually the first concert i've ever been to and OH GODDD SO GOOOOOD I CAN'T BELIEVE I WAS IN THE SAME ROOM AS PAUL MCFUCKINGCARTNEY OH GOD IT WAS SO AMAZING AND I REALLY REALLY WISH I BROUGHT A CAMERA BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE DID DFGKHSKDFHS
    the stage shot fireworks during "live and let die," which scared the crap out of me, oh god. i love it when he does that song, though, because he just looks like this complete madman on the piano. that's kind of a lame video, though. HE ROCKED OUT A LOT MORE AT OURS, HE STOOD UP
    he's such a ham, haha. he also wore a light pink shirt and white suspenders under his jacket which i thought was hilarious for some reason (everyone wooed when he took his jacket off and he was just like YEP THAT'S THE BIG COSTUME CHANGE FOR THE SHOW)
    so cool. i want to give him a hug, he's so charming.

    -apparently david sedaris is coming back here, and is going to do a performance thing rather than a book-signing. need to get tickets!

    okay first of all BILLY MAYS
    NOOOOOOOO
    JEEZ IT'S DAVID CARRADINE, ED MCMAHON, FARRAH FAWCETT, MICHAEL JACKSON, AND NOW BILLY MAYS
    THIS IS THE WORST MONTH EVER

    i'm sad about billy more than the rest, though. i just saw him on conan! i bet the shamwow guy secretly threw that suitcase at him as REVENGE for that scorching SHAMWOW MORE LIKE SHAMPOW burn
    i actually looked up some old billy mays infomercials out of SORROW and found this. before i would've cracked up, but now it's just depressing ;_; why, billy mays
    though a cool thing that happened when michael died: like, 10-15 minutes after hearing it, we decided to go out to eat, and drove past someone on the corner of a busy intersection all dressed as michael and doing different dances he did. i guess he was an impersonator? though when we were driving home there was like A GROUP that was taking turns dancing and wearing the michaelhat, so i guess anyone could join in. too bad i don't know shit about dancing or i would've jumped in HAHAHA
    (i guess i'm sort of late posting about this, but i didn't really feel like posting earlier, haha)

    guhhh i have no motivation to do anything. i have been so bad about doing art for this past month or two. it's not really art block since i HAVE ideas, i get them all the time and i get excited about them, but then i think about actually having to work on them and i just... don't want to. or i'll doodle something for a while and get bored/impatient, and even just mustering up the will to do THAT much takes effort. i guess it's just some kind of... productivity block more than anything (and some art angst mixed in since my art is crap, fffff), but i want it to go away, jeez. i guess the only cure is to just MAKE myself do art until i eventually get back into it, but hnsdfkgjhks

    oh man i'm so hungry. also this song is really addicting wtf
