Australia
Current Residence: Central Queensland, in a country bereft of common sense, rotten to the core. Once free, now basking in what only deserves ridicule from its neighbours. Its politics cater to the corrupt, the foolish.
Favourite genre of music: Hard to say, really... but I tend to favour the orchestrated, non-lyric variety.
Favourite style of art: A blend between Sci-Fi and Fantasy, mostly. I'm also a fan of watercolour work.
Favourite artist: God. His works are beyond human talent and if you can't see them that's your choice.
Favourite mortal artists: Edmund Leighton, Fredrik Andersson, Jenny Dolfen, Bayardwu, Darren Tan,
Kai Lim, whoever is responsible for the Homeworld series, Wang Lin, & Kekai Kotaki, to name a few...

Personal Quote: Creating something only becomes pointless when you no longer learn or feel anything for it.
Interests
Yeah, because once in a blue moon I like to talk about money. =P

The US economy has strengthened significantly under Trump's watch.  In no way am I resentful of this fact, I was brought up to respect those with wealth, so I'm no entitled whelp.  If I had the means I'd probably by living in America right now because Australia by comparison is a sinking ship.  Our coin nearly equaled the US doallar back during the Bush/Obama years and the Japanese Yen was substantially weaker during that period, too, so buying items from places like Hobbylink Japan was well within my budget.  Not anymore.

Take commissions for instance.  I only accept US because the current exchange rate between countries makes the Australian Doallar look bad and it doesn't help that the government has placed a GST (Government Sales Tax) on most online purchases now so Australians are literally forced to pay more for the same product.  In theory this is not a bad thing because it helps local businesses compete with online stores and so on.  The downside, however, is places like Amazon have pay walls implemented now where Australians can only shop with the AUS Amazon site, which only has a fraction of products available compared to the International site.  So folks like myself are fresh out of luck and have to look elsewhere.

Unfortunately, that's only the icing on the cake.  For gamers, Steam and others like it have been giving a big middle finger to us Aussies and other lesser countries for years now because it only deals with US currency.  Buying a game from such online services is far more costly and this is also goes for when it's merely the middle man during a transaction.  In the case of say, Warframe, if one was to say pay for the costly $200 platnium package, for Austraians the exchange rate according to Steam sets us back by $282 AUD.  Yet here's the thing...

If you log directly into Warframe's site, cutting Steam out of the equation?  $224 AUD.

So... yeah.  This journal is brought to you by some guy who likes to save money. ^^;
