Okay, so, wow.
Back in 2008 I submitted sample reviews for a certain professional anime website (a big one), and the editor praised my work, but told me they already hired somebody for a position recently and they'd keep an eye out for me. A couple of years later in 2010 I received some token assignments for the site, and assumed I was on my way for a more permanent position (albeit, still a part-time review position, but I wanted to get my toe wet in professional writing), as I was assured just that by the editor. Time passed, and I largely dropped the matter, knowing that the editor knew who I was, interacting with him on occasion on Twitt
So, yeah, I'm just going to use my DA account to store as many of my old sprite comics as I can. The site they were on went kablooey.
I may, at some time this year, return to doing them. I know they're not great, but I enjoy doing them, anyway.
Meanwhile, check out my NationStates nation (yeah, that's still around): http://www.nationstates.net/nation=penguin_union_nation
I haven't written an entry here in forever, though I still upload stuff.
2011 was not a good year for me. I went through a lot of mental trauma for several months. For a while, I didn't think I'd live to see the holiday season. But I'm slowly regaining myself and getting back to work on sprite art.
So here's hoping your holiday season was great and that you and I both have a happy new year!
Right now, I need a drink. Of water, of course.
(Rum and Coke for New Year's Eve.)

Once upon time, in the magical land of Toronto, Canada, a young man named Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) played bass in a band called Sex Bob-Omb. He also dated a high school girl named Knives Chau (Ellen Wong), lived with a cool gay roomate named Wallace Wells (Kieran Culkin), and tried hard to get over Envy Adams (Brie Larson). He's a got this manchild charm common of slackers of his age that happen to wear X-men patches on their coats and smile at the word "lesbian", and despite his sn
I just got back from watching Scott Pilgrim vs The World. It was fan-fucking-tastic. I haven't seen a movie I so thoroughly enjoyed in quite a while. Anywhoozle, until I write a review, I'll just go into my experience in the theater, because I think it's worth talking about.
So, generally when I go see a movie in the theater, I saddle up with a cherry Icee, and maybe some popcorn or a box of Sour Patch Kids. Today I was rocking the popcorn. But the Icee machine had broken down, so I was stuck getting a big Coke. I was fine with that. Pretty exciting story thus far, huh? Thrill at the stupendous adventures of Michael at the food court! But ju
