Literature
The Bullied
The Bullied.
He never enjoyed going to school.
He used to bunk whenever he had the chance.
Although he was not one for breaking the rules.
He refused to submit to their ignorant demands.
He told his teachers about his problems.
How he got bullied every lunch and break time.
They said they would find a rapid way to solve them.
Somehow his confessions filtered through the grape vine.
The bullying became more intense and extreme.
He began wearing long sleeved t-shirts to hide the marks.
He knew his parents would only label him as a troubled teen.
But he yearned for their understanding and supportive remarks.
Eventually he tried talking to his dad about it.
But ironically he wasn't best known for his listening.
Besides his home was always too noisy and overcrowded.
He was sure that they wouldn't notice if he was to even go missing.
His only friends were online and on facebook.
Every night you could hear him typing away in his room.
His mother started to wonder how long this phase took

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 17, 2019, 5:15 AM
meowwave by ncfwhitetigress  Hey guys and welcome to LeGrandzilla's Journal!  Stand by for news! meowdance by ncfwhitetigress

First of all, check out LeGrandzilla's eBay auctions to see cool stuff I am selling! 
We have had a lot of flooding in my area, my house is safe but we had to get my mom from her house before all the roads that could get to her were under water!  3 rivers flooded in record levels at once.
I was tagged by my friend :iconrose-hunter:  I am not going to follow any of the rules or tag anyone, but feel free to do the tag with the same questions if you would like!  Here are her questions:

1.  Do you like to read?  and if so what?
Yes, I like most to read comics and monster and kaiju magazines like G-Fan and Famous Monsters of Filmland.  I also like any books about kaiju and King Kong. 

2.  Do you have any pets?
I just have my aquarium with about 10 fish right now, but I also feed several squirrels and lots of birds on my deck every day.

3.  What is your favourite food?
I would say sushi, but I don't eat white rice anymore, so I guess sashimi.  I like seafood in general.

4.  Do you enjoy playing computer games?
No, I don't do gaming anymore, I just would rather do other things.

5.  If you could make one fictional character real, which one would it be?
King Kong comes to mind right now.  But I would want him left on the island with a Kong Kam.

6.  Would you rather win 1,000,000 dollars upfront and taxfree, or get 1,000 dollars a month for life?
Well, at my age it would be smarter to take the million, I would invest it and live off the capital gains.  That would ensure I could stay retired with no problems.

7.  What is your favourite wild animal?
I like lots of animals so it is really hard to choose.  I think today it is the panda.

8.  If you could get rid of one thing in the world what would it be?
Hate and unkindness.  That way wars and crime should be over.

9.  If you could add one thing to the world what would it be?
In line with question 8, I would say love and peace.  If everyone loved each other, there would be peace and people would never hurt each other.

10. What drinks do you enjoy?  (doesn't have to be alcoholic)
I no longer drink most of the things I used to, but I would say now one of my favorites is my Optivia Coffee Shake with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

11. What is your favourite quote?
I have many, but I will share one from Lilo and Stitch that I use when people annoy me:  "Thus far you are adrift in the sheltered harbor of my patience."

12. What do you like to do in your spare time?
Build models and watch tv at the same time!

Okay, now lets do some project updates shall we?

Legrandzilla
Jon LeGrand
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
This is a rare photo of the elusive legrandzilla. The legrandzilla is a solitary animal when he is painting. Furthermore, he is rather camera shy. A skilled camera ninja stalked this legrandzilla for hours before capturing this shot on film. Unfortunately for the camera ninja, the legrandzilla spied her and charged, trampling her and painting a mustashe on her nearly lifeless body with burnt umber acrylic paint. Such are the dangers of trying to capture a buck legrandzilla on film during painting season. When legrandzillas are painting Godzillas, they are particularly volatile, and should be offered a Dr Pepper and a snack before approaching. They can be very territorial when they are "in paint" as it is called, so if you see the legrandzilla with a paint brush in its hand, give it a wide berth, and by no means bump the table. This could prove to be a fatal mistake, especially if the legrandzilla is in the process of painting the eyes on the model he is working on. This rather large, alpha male legrandzilla was seen at his library exhibit, painting a Godzilla toy to be given away in a free drawing later. So, see, legrandzillas can be sweet and nice as well.

I build models and dioramas of giant monsters like Godzilla, I also sculpt and do oil and acrylic paintings. I go to G-Fest, a Godzilla Con every year and enter my work in the modeling and art contests. I have had an article and pics of my work published in G-Fan Magazine.
See me also on art station artstation.com/artist/legrandz…

And see and hear me on youtube: www.youtube.com/user/legrandzi… I have videos showing my models, art and aquarium so far, and more to come!

Current Residence: Omaha, Nebraska
Favourite genre of music: Genres are too constraining. I like lots of music and songs.
Favourite style of art: amazing is my favorite, maybe awesome?
Shell of choice: Gamera's
Personal Quote: All your Kaiju Art are belong to us!
