Now long story, feel free to skip and write "Too long; didn't read." it makes you look cool and smart.
Past Thursday I had my first free day in a month after non stop stress, intense life lessons and severe selfdoubt, but it was finally over.
Hahaha, man, that's the awesome thing about having a bad time in your life, when it's over and things pick up again it's awesome!
And not just one day but 2 and a half days! Animating, videogames, napping, eating crazy food, finally recharging!
No words can describe how awesome that is.
So yeah, then the phone rang. My uncle died, was appearently accidently killed by his doctor, then the phone rang again, I made a mistake with my administration and have to make some phone calls and pay extra bills. Then the phone rang again, a person was coming over to my house that day unexpectedly to continue the activities I was taking a break from, so bye free
Remembering Neil Armstrong: 1 year anniversaryThe Dryden Flight Research Center will be renamed to The Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center...Remembering Neil Armstrong: 1 year anniversary3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to rename a NASA flight research center after the late Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.
The resolution, which late Monday (Feb. 25) was approved unanimously in the House, calls for NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in southern California to be renamed the Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center. The bill (H.R. 667) also renames the surrounding Western Aeronautical Test Range after Hugh L. Dryden to continue honoring the aeronautical engineer.
"Not many people know the relationship between these two men," said Congressman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee. "Dryden was the visionary behind NASA's X-15 rocket plane and the Apollo program. Neil Armstrong was the one who flew the spacecraft Dryden envisioned."
This is at least the third time since 2007 that the House of R

Art Blocked? The Anatomy of Art BlockA brief edition, 7 years later, as this article is still receiving attention.Art Blocked? The Anatomy of Art Block8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
AS a webcomic artist who has now produced over 1,000 pages of work with no hesitation, I should amend this article with the following summary:
Art-block is caused by a lack of creative purpose. Purpose is the best means by which a vacillating artist might finally become motivated again. Whether it's as simple as the need to capture a beautiful image, like a sunset with a loved one, or as dire as the need to communicate an imperative revelation before death, this purpose is the key to allowing the feeling of importance, which will allow artists to undertake as great a task as making art.
Avoid irrelevant information.
Understand your own desires.
Feel no shame.
We all get art-blocked at one point. "I don't want to draw" or "I don't feel like drawing this..."
By understanding what art-block is, we can take steps to avoid it in the future, and pos

Anyway, just a head's up to let you guys know I might change my username sometime soon! Apparently typing in the original username would redirect you to the new username, so there's nothing to worry about there, hopefully!

KyotoI've only been here a week, but it feels like so much longer. I feel like I should say something about it... but where do I start?Kyoto2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I learned tonight that I can effectively communicate with taxi drivers, so that's a start. Also, whenever I do stuff with my American friends, sightseeing, shopping, and so on, I'm pretty much the only one who knows where to go (good sense of direction + good sense of general layout of Kyoto), what to say, etc. and so I'm starting to feel like a tour guide... except I've never been here before. It's kinda fun, though. XD
The language school is great. After a week it's getting easier to keep up with my teachers talking in Japanese all the time. They're pretty fun (there are three who rotate irregularly every few days). Today's sensei was kind of odd... very funny and energetic, but he had a balloon inflater toy that he would use to pump balloons and threatened to shoot them at students if they didn't answer a question quickly enough.

"I gotta find him." He says.
Red hops off the table and runs out the nearby door.
But the beast is already waiting, a werewolf. The scent of blood makes it berserk. It dashes at Red while snapping its jaws, hot saliva leaks from its mouth. The creature slashes it's claw forward, Red backflips. He lands and aims his fist at the monster. He shoots it.
No gun, no fireballs.
The werewolf snatches Red in its grip. The beast lifts him off the ground and and yanks off his head--causing oil to gush from a metallic stump.

Kate Daniels"As Raphael passed Kate, he leaned to Curran and handed him a paper fan folded from some sort of flyer.Kate Daniels4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Curran looked at the fan. "What?"
"An emergency precaution, Your Majesty. In case the lady faints."
Curran just stared at him.
Raphael strode toward the Pit, turned, flexed a bit, and winked at Kate.
"Give me that," Kate told Curran. "I need to fan myself."
"No, you don't."
I edited the scene slightly (from first to third person) to make it easy to understand for those of you who haven't read these books. Just so you know, Curran is madly in love with Kate, and if they didn't need Raphael, he probablly would have just ripped him to shreds. Quite literally. Kate loves him back, she's just a smart mouth and enjoys teasing him.
To give you a better sence on the Curran/Kate relationship:
"Kate short-circuits my brain. In my head we always have these clear coherent exchanges, but once we meet, what comes out it is, "Kate, do what I say or I'll kill you." Her default reply is, "Fuck you!"
Soul Calibur IV Customs, and MigrainsSo, 2 bits of news as of late.Soul Calibur IV Customs, and Migrains3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, me and :iconzap717: have been playing a bunch of soul calibur IV lately (which you can download on xbox or ps3) and if you arn't aware, this game has a character customization feature that I say is pretty impressive. There is an arsenal of weapons and fighting types to choose from, and even though body and face types are a little limited, it's easily made up by the flexibility in outfits and armor, and you can even edit your character's voice and select what they say. Anyway, I thought this was a great system to recreate some characters, like Rei, Zap, Midas, and Zin. (Zin by :iconwizard11:, of course.) Rei even uses a bow staff, which i think is uber amazing. I was thinking that I would record them facing off with each other and upload it to youtube, just for fun. Would you guys like to see it? I may even make a few more characters, first.
