Something of an UpdateSo...went and watched Solo today at the AMC across town. Not a great movie by any means, apart from effects and the visuals. However, that's par for the course where Disney films are concerned anymore so you can't really measure a film's greatness by those factors alone these days. I think I'm in agreement with whomever it was who said the film adds nothing significant to the Star Wars mythos. And, frankly, I think the manner in which Chewbacca and Han met in the 'Legends' continuity is much more interesting. It's a shame, really. The cash-flow formula that seemingly infests films these days is very much at work here. If I had to characterize Solo, I would call it a low-brow, less complicated version of Ocean's 12...in space... The characters aren't that interesting and seem to be cut whole cloth out of some generic guide for character development that you can buy on the discount rack at Wal-Mart. Most of the film is easily forgettable and wont be worth discussing in 40 years time. It'
Something of an Update.I...FUCKING...HATE...the 4th of July!
It's bad enough having to deal with Eastside morons on a regular basis, but then to have to deal with all these stupid fucking fireworks explosions for the roughly ten days surrounding what is supposed to be the 'birth' of the United States... These idiots don't care about the history, traditions, and institutions that represent the best of what America has to offer. If they did, there would be a lot more people screaming for Trump's ouster from office. And, as a matter of fact, he probably wouldn't have been able to steal the White House in the first place. Thus, we would have a leader with solid experience in Foreign Policy and Domestic Policy, who isn't sucking off one of our biggest political rivals at every turn; to say nothing of the fact that we wouldn't be facing the possibility of a tyrannically-fascist, Right-Wing Supreme Court. Now, maybe if Hilary had soundly defeated Donnie Dickhead (like she, in actuality, did) we would
Something of an UpdateJust dropped off the Holter Monitor the clinic saddled me with for 48 hours. Will know in a week or so if anything came of the results. The background here is that my GP at my primary care provider heard my heart skip a beat during a routine blood pressure check almost two weeks ago. So after doing an onsite EKG (which came back with nothing irregular) they referred me to another clinic at the hospital to get the monitor fitted for a two-day observation. Well, now it's over and I don't have to worry about sensor leads popping out every time I go to the toilet or fall asleep.
Went to see The Goonies at Flix with my sister and her girls the other day, as the latest event in their FanFest series. Crazy to think that half of that cast went on to highly successful careers. Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano certainly had careers beforehand but I think their best stuff came later. For Joe it had to be the iconic Cypher in The Matrix. And though I'm a bit biased against police
A Tidbit on Mental HealthWoman With Anxiety Makes A List For Her Boyfriend Of How To Deal With Her, And Everyone Needs To Read It
Sometimes being neurotic has it's advantages. One reason people with mental health problems have such a poor time with relationships is that they don't have the wherewithal or the language necessary to communicate the symptoms of their illness. This inevitably results in an inability of the other party (be it a family member, a co-worker, a lover, etc) to understand and alienation ensues between the two. Clearly, this woman has figured out that self-awareness is key to over-coming the strain of mental illness on relationships and I think everyone should take a cure from her playbook.
For those with mental health problems - don't get stuck in the question 'what am I doing wrong' but, rather, take note of your past failings, analyze what happened and work out how things could go diff
Something of an Update.We'll start with the good news. Went to Flix BH last week to see Spaceballs with my sister and her two girls. It was a rare chance to see a classic bit of satire on the big screen so I took it. Went and saw Avengers IW at the same just today. Epic film with a great cast but the resolution left something to be desired in terms of emotional impact. It's pretty hard to pull any kind of surprise twists when one knows how Disney is playing the long game with these films. Of course, now that they're pilfering the 20th Century Fox Marvel properties in their mouse-eared pop-culture-dictator pirate ship (with an eye toward incorporating those characters into the MCU) you know the inevitable 'reboot' film is coming. I don't know that such a move will dampen my enthusiasm for the Marvel Cine-verse but it's a cheap move none the less. And Disney has proven beyond a doubt that they are willing to do whatever it takes to pander to their shareholders and the bottom line. I refer you to the way
Something of an Update.Genetic testing came back on the cheek swabs my GP took a couple of weeks ago. Didn't really provide any serious revelations except to confirm what I pretty much knew ten years ago - that Paxil didn't work for me. So...back to the medication roulette wheel once again... Frankly, I'd rather die than gain anymore weight...
Sleep doctor's light therapy regimen has me fucked up a bit. I can't begin to imagine how many times I've forgotten to take my meds because his instructions have my internal clock fuckered up six ways from Sunday...
And if the next forty years are going to be more of the same in regard to the last twenty years...I don't really want the next forty years. I may be, as my therapist says, a 'survivor', but that's not good enough. If I can't find a way to live then I really don't want this life...
Something of an Update.Life seems to get worse for me the harder I try to correct my issues, whether it's suffering the horrid side-effects of a medication regimen in an attempt to sort out what meds will actually work for my mental health issues, suffering the fallout of the instructions of my sleep doctor in a doomed-to-fail attempt to correct my sleep patterns, or just generally having to wake up every 'day' and muster the strength of will it takes to face the reality that I really have no future and nothing to actually live for. My love of music is all but dead and has been for over a year now, ever since I packed away all my musical equipment after parting ways with someone with whom I fell in love. My love of art seems to be dying as well. I haven't been to the local art center in I don't know how long and I haven't been able to muster the will to paint for at least four months. In fact, all I've managed to do of late, art-wise, is draw some practice sketches from an instructional book I found at a boo
Prose, November 9th, 2017Am I dying...or am I already dead...? Is that the reason I feel so numb, cut off...so emotionally disconnected from the world around me...? It this merely my body remaining in motion until the proper time comes to drop and become one with the dirt and worms…? Is that the reason I shy away from boredom but have very little will or desire to be anything substantial...because I am already, effectively...dead…?
What will the next four or five decades really be worth if my will to be...anything...is permanently buried in the past…? I can know there is a future ahead, and I can know I will ‘live’ to see it but I doubt very much I will have any serious connection to it or a substantial role in it. An anomaly...that’s my fate...nothing more than an anomaly...sucking up resources until the day I drop… A meager leech taking more than I can possibly give because basic survival is the only instinct I have left...
What do I really love…? What can I re

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
[CLOSED] COMMISSION SLOTSA COUNTDOWN TIMER TO OPENING MY COMMISSIONS
I hope you all are doing well
I'm opening a few commissions slots right now. But as I promised to some of you, they all are "first come - first serve slots". Also, commissioners would be added to my "To-do list" in the order they took the slot, which means that the one who took the slot first would get his order finished first. This time it'll take me from one to four weeks to finish your commission (depends on your number on my "To-do list"). It might take longer as my schedule is unstable ^_^' But if I need a lot of extra time I will definitely tell you.
YOU CAN ONLY TAKE A SLOT WHEN THE TITLE OF THIS JOURNAL SAYS "OPEN"

16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they

NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
