Sorry for the sudden torrent of activity...for those of you that are still here.
So, in my last journal...over two years ago...I mentioned that it's been a while since I last did anything with my dA account. I dunno, man. I just got the whim to start using this thing again.

So, what'd I miss?

I haven't uploaded any artwork in a while, have I? Since what, last year? I need to get back on that. I'm still somewhat active in the chats, but need to get back to focusing on the "art" part of "deviantART" (even if all I've been drawing lately are doodles of Marvel characters), especially since the 10-year anniversary of my dA membership was back in September.

Maybe I'll start up the "Month of Mario" again. That might be fun (albeit more work than last time because of all the games that have been released since then). I'll try to get started with my comic projects, too. Like Weird in a Can (for real this time) and adapting The Adventures of Feelgood & Longbottom videos into graphic novel format (might do that one first since all I have to do is rewrite it and draw it).

As for outside of dA, in the past year I moved in with my other aunt for five months, then got my own place back in September. It's pretty rad, finally living on my own.

So, that's what I've been up to (now to get started replying to comments and other messages). How are you guys and gals doin'?

And, as always, if you can't find me here, there's always Facebook, my Tumblr and Skype.

Not really, though. How could I, after spending nearly ten years of my life as a member?

But anyway, yeah. Here I am. Gonna try to be more active on dA. I've been in a major creative rut as of late, and looking back through my gallery and journals reminded me of how much more creatively fertile I was in the past (what I lacked in skill and talent, I like to think I made up for in ideas and enthusiasm). Then again, it could just be the ol' nostalgia-powered rose-colored glasses at work, too.
Nevertheless, I cleared out my dA inbox, unfollowed some folks (none of you guys), got sad from the number of folks that have deactivated their accounts, and am ready to start being deviant again.

That said, outside of my creative endeavors, my life's been pretty eventful. After five years of searching, I finally got a job. I'm a Walmart cashier (after a very brief and unpleasant stint as a Retail Representative for a marketing company).  I've got a long-distance girlfriend in the form of All-Da-Pretty-Horses. Also, my comic collection has grown considerably, and I bought a Wii U and a 3DS.

And, as always, if you wanna contact me outside of dA, there's always Facebook, my Tumblr and Skype.
So, that's where I am right now. How are you folks doin'?

I make turn this into a series if enough people like it. Of course, keep in mind that this is the first one, so I've still got some bugs to work out.

A while back, I made a Tumblr dedicated to the original Lupin III manga.

Do you have a Facebook account? Great! I'm in a contest to win two free tickets to a local comic convention.
Just head to this link: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… and hit "Like". I'd really appreciate it, even if you don't actually think the pic is all that great. Understandable.

Also, I'm still reviewing horror movies over on Tumblr.

Hey, folks! Remember how, last year, I watched a horror movie every day in October? Well, I'm doin' it again. However, I'm also posting on Tumblr my stream-of-consciousness thoughts on each movie as I watch them.

Do you like horror movies, old and new?

Do you like reviews with a dash of humor?

Do you like me?

  • Playing: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Yep. Still offline. I'm writing this post sitting outside the local library (I can't go in because they're not open today)

However, during my time without internet access, I've been playing a lot of Skyward Sword. Here's some general thoughts. I'm currently in the "Fire Sanctuary".

    Zelda is adorable. I hate the word "moe" and the subculture surrounding it, but it seems like the only word to describe how cute she is.

    Due to how miserly I am with Rupees, and how much time I spend cutting grass and collecting bugs for Stritch, my Link seems to be motivated not by a desire to save Zelda/the world, but by greed and a love of gardening

    Link, Zelda, Ghirahim, and Fi (as well as Pipit and Karane, to a lesser extent) seem to have been designed in a different style than everyone else.

    On that note, I can't help but feel that if Groose was as handsome as Link, Zelda might've tolerated him more. Lots of single guys in Skyloft, but none were designed as attractively as Link. Is the game making some kind of implication that attractive people are the only ones worth falling in love with? I mean, I'm sure Peatrice isn't supposed to be seen as beautiful, and in order to complete her sidequest, you have to make her fall in love with Link, then dump her. But I'm no doubt just reading too much into this, as Ghirahim is designed in a similar style as Link & Zelda, but he isn't a good person by any means.

    So, the birds seen on shields and logos since Ocarina of Time are Loftwings? Wow.

    Fi is very irritating, especially whenever I'd have Link solve a puzzle then have her tell me that I just completed a puzzle. I'd rather have Navi (not that it means much, as I actually liked Navi. She was cute and helpful)

    I love Gossip Stones. They crack me up every time. I especially like the one that helps you find the baby rattle ("But what do I know? I'm just a stone.")

    Either this game is easier than the others, or I'm getting better at Zelda games. I'd say it's probably the former.

    I noticed at the beginning how Gaepora mentioned that this is the "25th Anniversary of our fine institution." I see what you did there, Nintendo.

    Gorons have always been my favorite race of beings in the series. I was very happy to see them here. I love running into Gorko and seeing what he's been up to.

    That Sacred Shield is a ripoff.

    My cousin and I refer to Headmaster Gaepora as "Professor Crazyeyes"

    I've got a good feeling Scrapper's not gonna get anywhere with Fi, and I feel bad about that…until I actually talk to it and see that it's kind of a jerk.

    The Lanayru Mining Facility is probably one of my all-time favorite dungeons.

    …although the Silent Realms were a lot of fun, too.

    Every time I ask Fi for help, I imagine Link yelling her name like a little kid would call his mother for help.

    How do you pronounce Fi's name. I've heard it pronounced as rhyming with "lie" or "die", but I always pronounce it as "Fee". Fee fie fo fum?

    The Imprisoned was a very fun boss fight, I felt like a total badass.

    Fi seems to have a fascination with Bokoblin underwear.

    I once destroyed a Deku Baba with Link's face.

    Thanks to Awkward Zombie, every time I get a Gratitude Crystal, I imagine the person coughing it up.

    I really miss Ganon. He's my favorite character in the series, but he appears to have not even been born yet, with this being a prequel and all.

    Best part in the game so far might just be having Link say "Am I late?" That was just AWESOME.

So, I probably forgot a few things, but this should be a rundown on my thoughts on the game thus far.

(As an aside, The Dark Knight Rises was really good. Not as good as it's predecessor, but a fitting ending. Also, thanks to toukon10176 for the subscription!)

Hefujageber. The Avengers movie. It was flippin' amazing. It started off great and got better from there. Exciting, funny, and emotional. Loved every minute of it. And that stinger midway through the end credits...I dropped a more profane version of "holy crap" to the guy next to me. I definitely can't wait to see where it goes from here.

Yeah, Gozar and 6dollarcookie's podcast. For some reason, they thought I'd be a good guest star. We discuss the third episode of the new Lupin TV series. No offense intended to any Goemon fans.

I got to go to my very first con, the Lexington Comic & Toy Convention!

It was great! I got to meet the actors who played Bulk & Skull on 'Power Rangers', got a comic signed by Bob McLeod, and my brother got punched in the face by Batman!

But, I'm back now (for the most part).
