A day of doing nothingHey Ryceballs. yesterday marked the day that I did absolutely nothing. I gota admit, the last 2 weeks has been one of my most crazy weeks of the year, there were just tooooo many things going on at the same time that has affected my emotional state. It was like an emotional roller coaster that just didn't end. Not just bad things don't get me wrong, but good things too. And being a guy who try to take as little rest as possible, I came to a point where I just got totally burnt out. I was just exhausted and tired and just felt extremely depressed. It has affected my judgement and logical thinking and it even shows in my polls to be honest, I don't know if people realise but sometimes the topic of the polls and quality of my artworks are affected by what's going on in my life.. but sometimes I throw in a few odd ball polls in there to mix it up so you guys don't think I am personally going through stress, so yeah 'poo flavoured icecream' isnt a thing from experience don't worry!

SAY HELLO TO YOUR THIRD UNCLE'S WIFE'S MOTHER'S BROTHER'S SON'S STEP SISTER'S CAT'S COUSIN'S FATHER'S OWNER'S DAUGHTER'S SECOND BROTHER: Thats me in the middle (Not really) reading a book with a lot of relatives looking at me with their creepy faces. The thing is that all of those uncles has different unique titles, like 2nd uncle, 3rd uncle, 4th uncle. Then it can get more complicated like 2nd uncle's son, 3rd uncle's daughter. Then it can get even more complicated when you have to remember the title for relatives like your uncle's son's wife's mother's brother! And trust me even a complicated link like that has a unique title in chinese, and I am supposed to remember the title... Oh by the way as a duty from the youngest person in the family
Tales of the missing Car Park TicketThis happened two days ago when I had to go to a shopping mall called Westfield. I was there to receive my copy of Zelda Skyward Sword as well as trading in the frustrating Goldeneye Reloaded for possibly Skyrim.Tales of the missing Car Park Ticket4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story begins as I drove to Westfield, got into the car park, its one of those car parks that requires you to get a ticket and if you are only there for 3 hours or less you wouldn't need to pay anything, then they charge you per hour after etc etc. My mind was still deep in thoughts about my grandfather's death that happened a few days ago so I wasn't really paying attention to what's happening around me. So I got into the shopping mall, got Skyward Sword, got rid of the stupid annoying Goldeneye Reloaded and traded it in for Skyrim. I then walked around the mall a little bit, went into Toys R Us and wandered around like a pedophile, I even went into the girls section for a bit (What? I like Monster High, don't judge me.) I spent around half an hour in the mall pretty much,
Post Manifest 2013 (With too many photos)Hiya Ryceballs, so just last week I was at Manifest in Melbourne selling artworks like usual. It was very enjoyable.

When Ry had no pubic hair, when Ry couldn't form a sentence together properly, when all Ry did all day was draw and play with toys... Actually you know what? Ry of today is pretty much the same so no changes there.

Above is a photo of me as a baby after I saw an ugly person. I was fascinated by this statement they claimed, so they told me there was a time when they took me out to meet their school friends, I got along with everyone of them, laughing and having fun with them, except for one person, I got scared and cried everytime I saw him. It was a mystery as to why I was like that to him... and they have concluded that it might be because he's ugly. And yeah I know its rude to define who's ugly and who's
A RetrospectiveHello Ryceballs! So I was looking through my god awful gallery the other day and had a nostalgic moment when I saw some of my old artworks, I am happy to say that I have improved over the 5 years stay here on Deviantart (Thank god...). So I just want to show you a few of my earlier artworks and talk a little about the story behind each one of them. I must admit that the early artworks you see on this list is not REALLY the first few artworks I uploaded on Deviantart, but I have since got rid of my even older ones because I really really dislike them, I don't want you guys to vomit blood ok. If you guys REALLY want to see the ones I have deleted.. I guess I can dig into the abyss of my old computer and find it. Anyways here goes!A Retrospective2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy! Difficulty level where did you go) but I might still one day go back to it and replay it from the beginning just for fun's sake, but then now what..? Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf

PS4 vs Xbox One who wins?If you like videogames like me, chances are you have been aware of what's happening in E3. Everyone's talking about it now. Since a few weeks ago with the whole TV TV TV TV TV TV TV SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS Xbox conference I have been pretty unhappy with things that are going on with Microsoft. You can't play used games, you need to log in to your internet at least once a day to play games, and it feels like you are actually RENTING a game rather than owning it if you know what I mean. OK then at E3 today they announce the price for the Xbox One.. wait for it. $499 USD. Mmmmk alright, I kinda expected it to be expensive.. but here's the part that surprised EVERYBODY, it costs 429 Pounds and 499 Euros. Wait a minute what? So I quickly pulled out my little pink calculator and found out that for the UK thats equivalent of $666 USD (Interesting its also the number for Satan) and 662 USD for the Europeans. Yo WHAT THE HELL? Why do the people at europe hPS4 vs Xbox One who wins?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HATSUNE MIKU!!In 2005,(Way before Miku ever was popular) my cousin Kirumi was going to get a job at CFM (Crypton Future Media) and was looking forward to finally move out to the city and start a new life.I was very excited about her first job as much as she was and that job,no one knew but her and later me,that her first job would bring and make history in J-pop culture.In 2006,the CFM team was starting a project called VOCALOID (1). Kirumi said that it was a software that allows you create songs and interact with the character (later called MMD-MIKU MIKU DANCE but it wasn't called like that before it was called MD-Model dance) The very first character was MEIKO project code_00-0 using the sample voice of Meiko Haigo.9 months later they started the same project but they decided to make a male character called KAITO using the voice of Naoto Fuuga the project code_00-1.The software wasn't a big sucess said Kirumi,the company didn't make as much money as they planned it would.

So glad voting is over ..For all Ryceballs outside of Australia, be happy that voting is not mandatory for you. Ok if you didn't know this, in Australia if you don't vote you'll get fined.

MOVIE RYVIEW: Big Hero 6Ry: Unlike The Hobbit Battle of the Five Armies, Big Hero 6 gets the number right and actually does have 6 heroes. The movie is set in a racism free futuristic city where young Hiro Tamada and a robot and four other teenagers team up together to fight a mysterious villain in a kabuki mask. And like every other Disney film, a box of tissue is required. It is an action packed film with some emotional scenes that makes your heart feel warm. It should also be mentioned that this movie is loosely based off of a Marvel comic book series of the same name, but with a few Disneyfied alterations to the characters to make the film more kids friendly as well as some inevitable storyline changes due to licensing issues, for example the Silver Samurai and Sunfire not being in the movie because they belong to 20th Century Fox. However, I think Disney did a great job balancing its original source with the new spin. TLC?MOVIE RYVIEW: Big Hero 68 months ago in Personal More Like This

It has been an emotional roller coaster for him and this whole event is kinda like a joke now when I think back on it. OK long story short, he was afraid he's gonna be jobless, pretty much he left his old job to work in a 'better' job only to find out that this better job has an even more unreasonable boss bla bla bla I don't wanna get into full details for his privacy's sake. So now he wants to quit this current job and go back to his old job and im like 'ARE YOU FREAKIN JOKING ME?! YOU JUST LEFT! AND NOW U WANNA GO BACK?!' Like how embarrassing would that be right? But he says he has no other options and no other jobs out there, so I told him to look for jobs online and he's like 'Oh nah it won't make a difference'. :I This is coming from a man who doesn't know how to turn off an ipad.
