i guess this will count as a reverse friends cut, too. if you don't wanna follow me to the new journal, there's no hard feelings.

god i really need to bring more members to [ 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)

everyone do this, even lurkers and stuff. i'm always kind of curious about this sorta thing.

GETTING TO KNOW YOUUUUUUU...this is a meme to let us get to know each other better! Even if we never talk, you can still fill this out.

backupdump002: (Default)
[ profile] supercharitygo has started again! participate and pass it around! you don't have to do a lot (i'm just doing sketches lol) but doing ANYTHING is still totally awesome. regardless of what you do, though, passing it around will help out a ton. we need more members, haha

this isn't what i want for a final team (TOO CUTESY, GET OUT TOGETIC) but it'll work for now

oh yeah, as a heads up, i'm gonna switch over to [ profile] sir_stache eventually since i want a fresh start (inb4 dox when are you going to stop switching LJs). go ahead and add it, but don't take off [ profile] doxinator yet because i'm trying to decide whether i want to finish sanitarium or not and i don't wanna carry it over because that's not a fresh start and i don't know why i think about stupid things like this because it's ridiculous and silly but SHUT UP
chances are i probably won't finish sanitarium, but who knows. I'M JUST SO TORN OHHH
-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
backupdump002: (holly sup)
i'm gonna do that 30-day writing meme, except i don't actually want to do this for 30 days, so i'm just gonna answer it all at once.

this is insanely tl;dr and probably won't make a lot of sense (i swear to god i'm going to talk about my characters someday) )
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.

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

do it or i'm gonna feel like a moran
have i done something like this recently? i dunno PROBABLY but just... do it anyway!!

sketchbook doodles (17?) )

MY LIFE HAS BEEN LAME LATELY UGH i can't think of anything noteworthy i've done lately (what do you mean lately dox obvious joke)
have crying wife

backupdump002: (where am i going)
tablet's broke. laaaammmeee. i got about 5-6 years out of it, though, so it was a good one. i feel weird without it though.

uhhh in the meantime i've been doing sketching, and i've still been plodding through drawing on the right side of the brain. i really wanna make some cheesy valentines, but since my tablet's broken, i was thinking i'd just do them on flashcards. i could even mail them that way too hahaha if anyone's interested. if i do that then i'll probably just do them all and post them and people can pick which one they want or something since i dunno
watch as i do nothing etc

song meme )

OH YEAH and sup new guys
backupdump002: (nice)
no more heroes 2!! i got it on the first day and would've beaten it sooner than tonight but the final boss is bitch hard
but yeah! honestly, i wasn't really feeling it untiiiilll about the middle-to-end part of the game, when things started sinking in and the bosses start to get more detailed etc, and then it was pretty cool! not that it wasn't cool before, but i guess the nmh "spark" just hadn't hit or something.

ds is still... different, in ways i can't place. maybe it's because it's supposedly more "serious"--which worried me when i first heard that since the last thing i want is for nmh to take itself seriously--but i dunno, while ds was still insane and i didn't notice it being THAT much more serious than the first game, i still feel like there was a change of attitude and style that made me sort of miss the old game. a lot of people are complaining that the bosses aren't as fleshed out, which is something i definitely noticed and was annoyed about, but when i thought about it, it kind of makes sense; travis isn't a rookie anymore and is also being fueled by a lust for revenge the whole game, so it makes sense for him to just claw his way through the ranks without really caring about who's in his way. which is something that would hit harder if we ever actually saw inside travis' head, but as it is, i think that sort of makes for poor storytelling, y'know? the game pretty much just slaps someone in front of you and goes THIS IS THE NEXT BOSS, FIGHT
or maybe it's just because there's more bosses this time around or something

but it's a great game and a worthy sequel, and i definitely appreciate the fact that they trimmed off a lot of fat that the older game had; santa destroy is just a map, and you no longer have to pay for the next ranked match (although you still have to pay for other things, like the gym, but the 8-bit minigames are fun and you can get shittons in one round). i hear that suda51 wants to make one more nmh game, but this is the last one starring travis. who is the next star???? HMMMMMMMMMMM

spoilery stuff )

in other news, i keep wanting to switch ljs since i hate the old entries and also the thought that people still relate those old entries to me, but for some reason i'm all weird and indecisive about it. i'm just attached to this journal or something, haha. but i'd like having a clean slate.
tryin' to think of an awesome name hmmm

My Valentinr - doxinator
Get your own valentinr

+joanne's out of the hospital
+papa's surgery went well
+have FINALLY started reading drawing on the right side of the brain, which pretty much every artist ever swears by. shoulda read it years ago, but better late than blah blah I'M EXCITED
+this shirt
+nmh2 comes out soon oh god oh man
do i want to buy it right when it comes out though?? so expensive. same deal for the edgeworth game.
+for a while it seemed like everything was going wrong for just... everyone, but i think things are lightening up now.
-apparently they might've found something else during papa's surgery. won't know until later today.
-other family issues that i don't really feel like getting into.
-conaaaannn wahhhhh
-I'M SUCH A SISSY UUUUGH i don't wanna talk about it but i just hate it, i'm supposed to be tougher than that.
?dad's talking about going up to lake haven for a while to help out, if my other relatives haven't taken care of everything. i'm thinking of going, too.
?dad's going to retire in the fall. my parents keep talking about moving somewhere but have no idea where. mom wants to live in europe for a year, i think.

man i could totally do another art post but i'd have to scan things and i'm tired meh
backupdump002: (jacket)
we finally sold the old house!! this is such a load off hahaha

art (7) )

i have so many wips it's crazy

and [ 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 [ 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 [ 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.

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.

hey mailing christmas cards tomorrow wooo
i'm pretty sure i can just get a new key, so if you wanted to send a card in return then go ahead and use the return address

so happy 2010 etc etc. i like how easily 2010 just rolls off the tongue.
we tried to go to a balldrop in town but got there RIGHT AS it was dropping. we were just a block or so away and walking towards it as everyone was counting down. just sort of stood around for a little while and left, after that. EXCITING
i tried running towards it as they were counting down because i guess i thought i could i could run a few blocks in ten seconds

turns out that the laptop i got for christmas was defective, so i exchanged it. this one works perfectly. I AM TYPING ON IT RIGHT NOW ON THE LIVING ROOM COUCH
i have no idea how i went for years just using the desktop, because having all this freedom is tops; the thought of sitting in the same spot just sounds depressing now. ~~FREEDOM~~

Your Personality Is Like Marijuana

You're laid back and easy going, so much so that taking a shower is often too much trouble for you!

Nevertheless, you're quite popular, and many people enjoy your company. You're rarely turned down.

You're prone to giggle fits, paranoia, and forgetting where you are exactly.

At your best: You're relaxed, mellow, and without a care in the world.

What people like about being around you: You're accepting, non-judgmental, and often quite insightful.

What people dislike about being around you: You can be a little too spaced out and apathetic.

How addicted people get to you: A lot, but they're having too much fun to notice.

true except that i shower daily AND THAT I'M ADDICTIVE?

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
