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: (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.

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?

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)

DRAWME!
though the interpretation part is kind of ruined since i've drawn myself several times and have done (f-locked) picposts before but WHATEVERRR DO IT ANYWAY

[livejournal.com profile] wishwashing stopped by and hung out a few days ago. she gave me loads of skittles because she's a filthy enabler, but it was pretty cool. NOTE TO SELF: show her god hand next time i see her.

... have i done any other neat things irl, i can't even remember. i think i did?? guess it wasn't that important.

WELL, i beat saints row 2 and it was awesome, i love that game. it's funny how gangster games really endear you to the characters and make you really want to hang out with them, despite the fact that they're gangsters. but seriously, they're all so cool, why do they have to kill like 2974289347 people per day and blow everything up (and dress like a terrifying man-stripper when my character is thrown into the mix)
turns out that there were a few throwbacks to the first saints row, but i think they did a good job of being inclusive about them. i'll have to check sr1 out sometime, but that's a little hard to think about right now since i'm kind of gangstered out, haha. i'm thinking i'll try to finish scribblenauts or yume nikki next.

probably the saddest part about beating saints row 2 is that i'll have to leave my ridiculous character i created. no, really, i'm kind of depressed about that, i got all attached. i guess i could go back and get 100%, but all that is is just beating all the mini-games or whatever and that's lame. NOT EVEN THE PROMISE OF HIS BEAUTIFUL (DISTRACTING) ASS ONCE AGAIN GRACING MY SCREEN IS ENOUGH TO MAKE ME BEAT ALL THE MINI-GAMES

switching topics slightly, but i have a very bad habit of hoarding entertainment. i'll see a book i've been meaning to get and i'm all YEAH LET'S GET IT so i buy it and set it on a shelf and never look at it again. i have this pretty sizable collection of games and books that i haven't looked at just sitting on my shelves (and harddrive) just because i'm weird and lazy. anyway, since it's depressing, i've been trying to fix it using a ~new system~ where i am only allowed to get a new game or book once i've finished three. and yes, this means i have to "earn" birthday/christmas lists. might sound strict but i deserve it seriously
ANYWAY, NOW THAT I'VE BEATEN SAINTS ROW 2, THAT'S... ONE. one out of three out of... well, ever. hahaha I'M SO GONNA RACK UP A JILLION POINTS THOUGH WATCH ME

i need more discipline when it comes to art, too (art to-do list literally totals at 454, and that's just the stuff i've written down). every time i miss an art post, i have to cut off a finger. or something. also, photobucket has been really frustrating!! my art will look perfectly fine when i upload it, but i'll check back later and it's turned all blurry for no reason. photobucket stop doing annoying things to push your pro accounts i am taking my freeloading elsewhere
also hahaha i forgot about the holidays coming soon, so i guess i picked a slightly weird time to take sketch requests. WHATEVER.

i thought i didn't have anything to say when i sat down, but now look at this mess

[livejournal.com profile] heydudeicons update.
also, the philippines fundraiser at [livejournal.com profile] supercharitygo is still going on. go check it out.

man, i haven't felt like myself lately. i try to act normal, but it just doesn't feel right, and even the prospect of halloween hasn't been cheering me up. i dunno what's gotten into me, but i wish it'd go away so i can go back to
whatever i was before
an idiot
i dunno

i've been playing a ridiculous amount of saints row 2, which is really fun. i beat all the brotherhood missions and am currently working on the sons of samedi (who are a lot more entertaining. so much voodoo and drugs). even character creation is a load of fun. i thought about making martha stewart or paul reubens, but then i went down a more animu path instead it's hilarious don't judge me goddammit
i put him in a bra and a thong and fishnet stockings and high heels

real life stuff: my step-grandma has breast cancer. they found it really early, though, so it's very likely that she'll pull through just fine. tryin' to think of stuff to bring for thanksgiving, since she's not going to do any cooking. i guess i could make cookies? it's about the only thing i know how to make aside from pasta, which isn't exactly thanksgiving food to my knowledge

also, we've possibly sold our old house. it's been on the market for about five years, just draining us of money and making us clean up after loads of shitty tennants. i'm trying to avoid getting my hopes up since nothing's final right now, but god i hope these people buy it. it would free us up so much.

uhhh nothing else is coming to mind, so, question: am i intimidating/difficult to approach? this is completely unrelated to the rest of the post, so don't think people are coming down on me or anything, but it's just something i've wondered from time to time. be honest, anon's fine, etc.
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."

TIGER WHAT THE FUCK

[livejournal.com profile] zarla reminded me that i did this forever ago and forgot to post it, so i'm posting it now! i decided to make this consist mostly (mostly) of serious/well-done pictures, for a change. WHAT KIND OF PICTURES DO I ACTUALLY LIKE

Image Meme: Use any variety of pictures that are already on your hard drive to answer the criteria. They can be drawings, photographs, screen caps, anything you want.
i put a jillion pictures for each question so it's pretty imageheavy )

and...
20: Commenter's choice
what kind of pictures do you want to see? GIMME ANYTHING.

oh yeah, new favorite scribblenauts solve: in 3-2, there's a starite dangling from a rope over a pit of lava, and the only path that leads to it has a tripwire that drops the starite when you walk through it. i was stuck on this stage for ages since i was trying to find something that would catch the starite when it fell, and i just couldn't find anything that worked. in fact, i'm really not sure how i even thought of this, but i decided to summon god and throw him in the lava. since he's, well, GOD, he took a really long time to die (i thought he was invincible for a moment), so that's when i got the idea to just spam god over and over and throw them all in the lava to use as stepping stones.

AND IT WORKED

ACTUALLY I THINK I GRABBED THE STARITE AT A VERY LUCKY MOMENT SINCE I THINK I WAS IN THE LAVA AND IT JUST ROLLED OFF OF ONE OF THE GODS' HEADS OR SOMETHING, I DUNNO, IT ALL HAPPENED IN A SPLIT SECOND
I WISH I HAD IT RECORDED SO I CAN LAUGH AT MY HORRIBLE (BUT EFFECTIVE) PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS FOREVER
also i have no idea how i solved the cow one, i just scared the butcher using a goast and then accidentally wound up scaring the cow using the butcher knife and then i ran into a car and profit??? what was i even supposed to do in that one

sigh saints row 2 needs to stop sitting on my desk and looking so tempting i need to draw
backupdump002: (italies bop)
OH GOD this roach or something crawled into a glue trap in my room, but it just got the front part stuck so it keeps lifting its ass up and snapping it back down so it makes this really loud "clack" noise
and that's gross enough on its own, but
but the worst part
is that this brown recluse spider that's been in there for god knows how long keeps moving every now and then. IT'S BEEN IN THERE FOR WEEKS AND WEEKS I THOUGHT IT WAS DEAD AND IT KEEPS SLOWLY MOVING ITS LEGS AROUND HRNGRH
guhhh how long do they stay alive in the trap UGH I THOUGHT THE SPIDERS LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE GETTING BIGGER OVER TIME AND I GUESS IT WASN'T MY IMAGINATION AAAAAAAGGGHHHDFKJGHSKsdkjfhsdfs man that is so creepy

anyway now that i've grossed everyone out HAVE A SONG POST so i can cross this off my "posts i need to make" list
SONGS )

god, that's a huge pile of links. ENJOY.

oh yeah, i went ahead and traded in saints row for saints row 2! i get the feeling that story doesn't matter for this series, so i'll just go for new gameplay stuff. also picked up scribblenauts, which is a lot of fun. i pretty much just think HMM WHAT'S THE MOST RIDICULOUS WAY I CAN SOLVE THIS for each puzzle, which probably makes it last longer than it ought to, but trying to catch bugs by gluing a net to a pterodactyl is hilarious so who cares
probably my favorite solve so far is when i had to break a pinata for some kid's birthday, so i summoned a harpoon and went at it. I WOUND UP KILLING THE BIRTHDAY BOY WHICH NORMALLY MEANS A FAIL BUT I BROKE THE PINATA AT THE SAME TIME SO I JUST GRABBED THE STARITE AND LEFT
i killed him several times before that, too, one of them being from a wizard i summoned (i... thought he'd see the pinata and use magic to break it i dunno) going berserk and killing everyone at the party for no reason. WORST BIRTHDAY PARTY EVER
actually, i should really just start making a list of ridiculous solves and post them all once i'm done, because this game can get weird and i'm a dumbass which is pretty much a recipe for hilarity

on a completely unrelated note, does anyone remember aicha, aicha

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

BEAT PROFESSOR LAYTON AND THE DIABOLICAL BOX

SPOILERS )
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.

thanks for all the birthday wishes! i had a great one. turns out that the casinos here JUST raised the minimum age to 21, however, so i never did that. they did it because they all serve alcohol now or something. it's really weird to think that i'm now old enough to do like ANYTHING yet i'm still banned from places because there's budweiser around, btw.
SO i didn't do anything special (never do, really), just ordered some pizza and watched the dana carvey show. i am totally not complaining about that, though, because that was awesome. i always feel weird telling everyone what i get as gifts for some reason, so uhhh i'll just mention a few things: i got left 4 dead, which is very fun and i've been playing a lot of it lately. i also got dead rising, which i've been horribly curious about ever since it came out, so i'm very excited about that. got professor layton and the diabolical box, and iiiii JUST started chapter three, i think (twitter-followers are already well aware that i have this, i'm sure). also got san andreas, which is kinda funny since [livejournal.com profile] neutraltwin and i were just talking about that, haha. and... OH
I HAVE A QUESTION
IS SAINTS ROW 1 ANY GOOD? i asked for saints row 2 and got the first one instead, and i'm trying to decide whether i ought to exchange it. IF 2 IS REALLY AMAZING COMPARED TO 1 THEN I WILL
AND OF COURSE i got this amazing picture from [livejournal.com profile] tigerboat, which contains my four favorite Ls in the ~whole world~. i was very thrilled to get this. TIGER KNOWS ME TOO WELL
and, uh, the rest is just books and a pre-order for scribblenauts and stuff. haha, before i turned 18 i groaned in pain over how old it was, but now, whatever. as soon as it hit midnight i was already used to it somehow. NOW I'M GROANING IN PAIN OVER THE THOUGHT OF TURNING 20 IN A COUPLE OF YEARS

in other news, john got robbed. hahahaha what a dramatic change of mood-- but no, he just came home last night and found the back door kicked in and his ps3, two macbooks, and 52" tv were all gone. right now the suspects are these teenagers who knocked on the door beforehand asking for "carlos" and generally acting strange. whoever it is, i'm hoping the police will catch them, since from what i hear they sound pretty sloppy and stupid.
john has insurance, thankfully, but also has a $1000 deductible. i dunno, the whole thing sucks and it happened at a shitty time, since john is working a lower-paying job and is really strapped for cash and currently trying to sell his house. he doesn't need people stealing his crap and wrecking his home on top of everything else. i'm not worried that he won't get things back together--he always bounces back pretty well--but man, his whole situation right now just bites.

uhhh i had more things i wanted to talk about but i'm tired

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

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

UP

ADKFLGH spoilers )

tl;dr everybody needs to see Up right now. I think it's their best. Just prepare for how unbearably sad it is at points; it has a darker tone to it compared to other Pixar movies, which I really wasn't expecting, despite all the people saying that they pretty much sobbed the whole time. It really does cut deep. (But it's very sweet and funny, too.)

In other news, I'm going out of town for three days, so... yes. I still need to pack, hahaha

Please do it, I really like hearing what people think! Don't worry about being harsh or whatever, I can take it

I finally got a state ID a while ago. I am making the exact same face I made when I got a passport, which I got when I was... eight or nine or something. Just this little smirk, hahaha.

I got Sims 3 the day it came out, had to wait due to needing more RAM, and now I have to wait even more due to crashing problems. I'll play for a while and it'll either crash to desktop or restart the computer. Loads of other people are having the same problem, regardless of what kind of comps they have. I get the impression that this means it's a bug, though some people have been able to work around it. I'm a little afraid to test out a bunch of different "fixes," though, because I'm scared it's screwing up my computer akdfhgk. I really wish EA would give us some feedback on this; I haven't officially heard anything about them working on a patch for it, everyone's just kind of assuming that they are

so fffffffffffffffffffffffff

i fell behind on artslam and don't really feel like catching up. I've also been repainting the ceiling in my room, gonna make myself finish that today or tomorrow because I'm tired of having this room all messed up. It looks so much better than it did before, though. I also got a mass cane plant (corn plant?) named Paula and I'm gonna put her it in my room once I'm done painting, since it probably wouldn't appreciate the fumes. I HOPE PAULA GROWS UP WELL AND THAT THIS ROOM GETS ENOUGH SUNLIGHT FOR IT ;_; I'VE BEEN LOOKING UP MASS CANE CARE SO I HOPE I'M OKAY
PAULA ALL I WANT IS YOUR HAPPINESS!!!!

--wait, the care tag thing says that mass canes need a lot of sun but now these sites are saying they need little I SET PAULA ON THE SUNNIEST PART OF THE DECK WHAT AM I DOING

Uhh, I removed a few people who haven't updated in, like, years, and also some people I never talk to, buuuut anyone who wants back on can just comment, no big deal. I'm pretty chill about these things.

Hey, everyone needs to do [livejournal.com profile] artslam! It's pretty much an art challenge for all skill levels, where you draw one sketch per day for either 1 month, 2 months, or 3 months. It's kind of to help develop characters/worlds and stuff (as well as art skills, of course). Even I'm doing it, and I never sign up for anything. Agents!!! spam coming sooooon

I'm getting really excited for Desperate Struggle. I hear it'll have a "darker tone" than NMH, so I'm kinda wondering what that's gonna mean in-context. It looks like it's going to have plenty of goofiness, though (throwing ladies wtf).

Sims 3 is so close I can taste it. I need to plan out some more characters.

Edit: OH, I like doing this every once in a while, so...

Tell me something. Post it anonymously.

A story, a secret, a confession, a fear, a love: anything.
Something about you, something about me, anything at all.

Post honestly. Post as many times as you want.

Hey, don't forget about [livejournal.com profile] supercharitygo! We're already halfway through the month, sooo go put up your thread/donate/pimp/etc. I'm sort of thinking of extending the donation period through June, since now that I think about it, cutting it off at the end of May seems goofy. I DUNNO I'll have to ask everyone or something

I'm having these really bizarre computer problems, in that certain sites/things I do will just start spamming ads. I've been trying to just tough it out until this freakin' support forum responds (it's been a week, dammit), but the last couple of times I tried logging into the SCG mod account my browser just gets so bogged down that it stops responding. I was able to log in yesterday to update Current Commissions and there weren't any ads, but in its place was ridiculous lagging. It all goes back to normal when I log in this account, though. I dunno what the problem is. Spyware/virus scans pick things up, but they just come back. Things are still functional, at least, so it's not this horrible emergency or anything, but man do I wish these people would reply

ANYWAY I BEAT KILLER7 THE OTHER DAY

SO AWESOME

I'm amazed Suda51 doesn't have a bigger following, because from what I've played (the... two games that I've played, shut up), his games are really unique and awesome. It's weird, it's like... K7 and NMH are so completely outlandish, but they have these moments every now and then that are genuinely eerie, or even moving. They'll just throw all these bizarre characters at you and then show you a glimpse of something more human and it's like I don't even know what to think anymore, bro
But yeah, K7 had a much more serious tone to it (some parts were just disturbing, actually. Curtis and Pedro, goddamn), and was chock-full of interesting symbolism and psychological stuff. The plot is really complex and difficult to piece together at points, since a lot of it is told through these strange ghosts who can't seem to think in a straight line; I had to read a plot analysis later to get a lot of stuff. Or maybe I'm just a moron. EITHER WAY, it's really amazing, severely underloved, and definitely something I would recommend. I'd do a big rambling spoiler post, but I'm lazy and forgot everything I wanted to mention. I'M JUST GONNA DO SOME FANART

I've been getting too lazy to eat, lately. I'll be hungry, but the physical act of eating is like... tiring or something. What the hell.

So anyway are these the faces people make when they're looking at penises
