backupdump002: (WHERE'S MY BIRTHDAY CAAAKE)
-forgot to mention, but we went to texas several weeks ago to visit grandparents. they seem to be doing pretty well, actually, which was good to see.
-JUST got back from eureka springs. stayed there a couple of days for mom's birthday. it was pretty nice, haha. have some pics [17] )



i normally hate it when people add their own music to these things, but in this case, it just makes it more hilariously surreal

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.

I NEED TO DRAW SOMETHING
backupdump002: (true patriots)
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

a holiday treat meme
cookie milk scroll


i have a ton of trouble being personal with people (tsun tsun etc), but i'm going to try to do this for everyone. link me your threads.

something about the mixture between a classy r&b song and old people eating BBQ is the funniest thing ever to me
edit: FULL VERSION. the increase in not-hilarious young people is balanced out by the new lyrics.
backupdump002: (tsun tsun)
the holiday post is still open. i also put a "need address" note in very rude bold letters next to everyone who hasn't sent me their address/whose address i didn't receive for whatever reason, so those who have been MARKED better send me a PM!!! or e-mail!!!! or something!!!!!!!!

john and sherah are here. it's been a pretty nice visit. i can't think of a lot of super noteworthy things, except...
wacky stories )

man, i'm really looking forward to the day when people realize that the VAST MAJORITY of what i say--even the more angsty stuff--is playful and not meant to be taken 200% SERIOUSLY, so then decide to play along rather than give me lectures about ~life~ and tell me things i already know and push viewpoints that i already have and generally wag their finger me, thus making the conversation come to an uncomfortable halt while i just go "yeah, i know, it was a joke"
because that's really off-putting and fairly condescending and just tiring above everything else. it seems like every conversation i've had lately just ends with the person i'm talking to going WELL GEE DON'T SAY THAT or OH WELL THIS IS HOW THINGS REALLY ARE or I THINK IT MEANT THIS or YOU SHOULD THINK THIS over the most obviously sarcastic things. maybe these people just don't talk to me enough to pick up on my sense of humor, but goddamn, i don't think it's especially subtle or anything. i like to think that it's pretty obvious when i'm actually being serious about something or genuinely need advice (since i'll usually, uhh, ask for it), but i guess not

on an unrelated ragenote (HINT: SERIOUS), shit like this pisses me off so much. this is why i'm so ridiculously cynical when it comes to just about anything that pushes "family values" since, in my experience, that almost always seems to include keeping kids "safe" (HINT: SARCASM COMIN' UP) from all those filthy gays and transsexuals trying to pollute their minds with their lord-hating feather boas and sparkly thongs because that's all LGBT people are, obviously, and there's no possible way that they're just average, everyday people you see walking down the street or anything. like, i dunno, me. (HINT: TRUTH)

I'M GOING TO BED (HINT: PROBABLY TRUE)

ETA: oh yeah, i still haven't gotten addresses from everyone. and yes, people who have sent addresses previous years need to resend them, since i don't keep track of these things

photos of tv is hilarious. speaking of hilarious, this page about getting a deeper voice is probably the funniest sales pitch i've ever seen.

hey, everyone still needs to comment on the holiday post! also, i still need addresses from everyone.

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.

Click to view my Personality Profile page
ENFP page thing which is basically HUGE OPTIMISTIC SAP and also i'm will smith and steve urkel and bill cosby and regis philbin and the little mermaid (and will rogers fuck yeah)
it's actually pretty accurate though. the page about relationships was weird since it's all YOU'RE REALLY INTO CHEERING PEOPLE UP and it's like OH JESUS i was just talking about that before i took the test. YOU READ MY MIND, MYPERSONALITY.INFO

so hey i have 23847942 youtube links and that's something on my "posts to make" list so why the hell not. more productive than anything else i'm doing right now (WHICH IS NOTHING)

there's some insane backlog going on here, so sorry for any old stuff or whatever )

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.

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

backupdump002: (hey man)
sarah's birthday was cool. the fact that it was on labor day made it kind of a hassle since most of the restaurants were closed (i even jokingly suggested eating at a gas station only to realize that the lights were off), but we wound up going to this mongolian grill that was really neat. they just handed everyone bowls and let them go through and put whatever they want in them, then the chefs cooked it up. kinda like yogurtland, only everyone was handling raw meat instead of reese's pieces

one of the things sarah got for her birthday was a leopard-print snuggie. i am predicting snuggies in my future as well. speaking of which, i guess it's officially after midnight! i'm a legal (and i do mean ~~~legal~~~) adult, what. brb gambling/smoking/getting laid/buying a house/going to war/suing people/getting sued/voting/watching porn/buyin' dildos/calling infomercial numbers/WHATEVER ELSE I CAN DO NOW, WHAT CAN I DO
i actually AM going to a casino tonight i think HAHAHA birthday people get $10 free so wish me luck
i'll also go uhhhh sign up for y!gallery or something stupid, i dunno. it's so weird to think that all this time i've lied about being 18 to look at mature stuff and now i don't have to do that anymore. it's also weird to know that i've known a lot of my flist since i was twelve. (haha, "kuro")

so i've recently gotten into Everything is Terrible, which is basically a collection of really bizarre and hilariously bad clips from obscure VHS tapes. it's pretty much exactly the sort of thing i love. it's a huge account so i haven't gone through everything yet, but so far i've learned how to get huge calves, that godless hearts are delicious, and also that Richard Simmons looks pretty good in drag. AT LAST, I HAVE DIRECTION

i'm probably late, but omg phoenix wright musical. i want a subbed DVD of this so bad, it sounds hilarious. also hahahaha, 4:43. jesus christ, edgeworth

PROFESSIONAL GRUNTING

this is really sweet, though it's pretty sad to listen to the lyrics and think about how michael wound up as an adult. i guess his life is a pretty sobering subject in general, though.
speaking of which, has anyone noticed that joe jackson looks just like a piranha? i noticed that while watching the news in california. pretty fitting, considering what a sociopathic asshole he is and everything.

I SWEAR I'M WORKING ON ART

~*~i'm back~*~
actually i got back yesterday afternoon, but ehhh effort

ANYWAY, I HAD FUN. i went to branson, i don't think i mentioned that. i went there as a little kid and i remember loving it, but don't actually remember anything ABOUT it (aside from the cousins and i hanging out in the condo, and also riding go karts/bumper boats), so it essentially felt like a new place, haha. it's kinda ridiculously corny and hokey and everything--pretty much the sort of place for little kids and old people--but whatever, i had fun. i'm too lazy to do a big pic post right now, though.

... so here's a meme

the WHY AM I MOE? meme


ALSO


EERILY ACCURATE
backupdump002: (jammin')
Hahaha I keep throwing stuff on Twitter and then forget to put it on here.

-Went to a book sale at the library, which had RIDICULOUSLY LOW prices. Hardcover books for $2, some books were 50ยข, things like that. It was actually sort of crazy dkfgjhs it had like, nothing but old people attending it, and you had to take a number to get in since they could only let so many people in at a time, and as soon as the doors opened everyone just FLOODED IN and started piling books into boxes as fast as they could. Apparently last year this group of people came in and threw a tarp over a whole section and claimed it, so this year they had a police officer guarding the whole thing. WTF.

-Picked up Half Life, pretty excited about that. I'm trying to catch up on all the ~classics~ I missed out on as a kid, haha. Also got Killer7 which I've been playing a little. I'm still only at the very beginning, but it's already so bizarre, what the hell. THE FACT THAT SUDA51 MADE THIS IS NOT SURPRISING IN THE LEAST

-HAHA OH YEAH I saw license plate at Target that said "Bradley." I-I FINALLY FOUND HIM~~~

-Drove outta town yesterday to go visit grandpa (and some other old relatives, but mostly Papa), had an okay time. It was mostly just the old folks talking to each other while I kind of... stayed silent, haha, I had nothing to say and I tend to get kind of quiet around adults in general for some reason-- but I liked seeing everyone and everything. Everyone mostly hung out in the breakfast area at the hotel. At some point--freakin' broad daylight, 2 or 3 PM--the most obvious prostitute I've ever seen walked in the lobby and asked to call a certain room. She had a ridiculously short dress that showed part of her ass, these long black boots that had giant heels, one of those leather biker hat things, might have had leather gloves but I can't remember-- this real dominatrix look, just needed a whip or some spikes or something. What the hell.
So that's kind of a weird thing to see while visiting elderly family members.

Uhh I could have sworn I had something else I DUNNO WHAT ELSE TO SAY
Have this:

I don't really have anything else to say, so here's some dumb links:

[livejournal.com profile] zarla linked to some videos of a goofy Japanese video game reviewer who is terrible at video games, and while all the videos are pretty adorable, I liked the one where he plays a dating sim for girls the most. Thirteen hours, goddamn.

guhhhhhhh boredddd
man, last night i was just sitting on the computer when i suddenly got this MANLY RUSH and spent like four hours grunting and lifting things
i have no idea where that even came from, but at least I have a clean closet, now. haha, the more I clear out all the old stuff I don't want anymore, the more I realize that I... don't have a lot of new stuff at all. Everything is so barren. I just spend all my money on games and books above anything else these days, I guess.
Also, I found my Bob Marley t-shirt! I bought it and then immediately lost it and couldn't find it for months--I thought Sarah stole it or it was buried under dirty laundry or something, but I couldn't find it no matter how much I dug around. Turns out it was in my dresser. Oh, okay.

Sanitarium soon? Sorry I've been so bad about updating that thing. To be honest, I haven't felt like doing SCAs at all. :T Haven't wanted to read them, either. I dunno. I'm thinking of hanging it up for a while once I'm done with Sanitarium (hopefully I can finish it dkfghk errors).

OH YEAH ALSO THIS THING:
Comment here and I will give a brief honest assessment of what I think of you, with no sugarcoating or holding back, bearing in mind that my opinions are only based on personal experiences exclusive to me so it's not worth taking for anything more than the value of only one person's opinion. Do not comment unless you are willing to possibly hear bad things as well.
hahaha I guess, I'm kind of a wuss about dishing out COLD HARD HONESTY unless I'm really angry with someone or they do something awful. And neither things are true with anyone, so. ~gentle honesty~
Also uhh put "meme" in your comment or something so I know you wanna do that and aren't just commenting on the entry or whatever. That'd be kind of bad; someone just wants to say a few words on a video and I'm like HAHA YEAH
OH BY THE WAY

Thanks to everyone who suggested books! I'll have plenty to read, now.

Looks like LJ's gonna be fine, so I went ahead and bought a paid account. LOOK AT MY ICONS AND MY LAYOUT

I keep forgetting to mention this, but Spoony finished his Let's Play of Phantasmagoria 2 :D That has got to be my favorite LP I've seen so far, oh man. Spoony's so great. His whole site is gold, actually, you guys should really check it out. His review of the latest Indiana Jones movie is pretty much just him nerdraging incoherently and eating Wendy's and even that is awesome.

Speaking of Let's Play, Psychedelic Eyeball is so crazy. Crazy AWESOME. Wish showed me his videos, and they leave me nearly crying with laughter. GO WATCH. Go watch.

And in case you haven't seen it already, how could anyone ever bring themselves to eat these?! I want exact plastic replicas of all of these so I can put them on display and admire them forever

Ahahahaha I know everyone has probably already seen this, which I found ages ago and kept forgetting to post, but it still cracks me up. This makes it even better.

Oh yeah, I've been making lots of sculpey stuff lately and need to paint a bunch of things so PHOTOS SOON? I've also been drawing, so there's that.
I'm so tired. I THOUGHT I HAD SOMETHING ACTUALLY USEFUL TO SAY TODAY BUT I GUESS NOT i'm just gonna leave
