I haven't written one of these in 3 years. I don't have anything to say, I just was sick of seeing that previous one.

DA birthday post

Tue Aug 10, 2010, 11:19 PM

Give this views and favs please:


Hey guys, thanks for the birthday wishes, and the 1 point from murtada-king (lol) and the sick artz from Disceel. And don't be all sad if you didn't get to say happy birthday, I still think you're pretty cool.

And yeah I had a pretty cool birthday... don't worry.

So now I'm 18, "the age that stop being 'good for your age'" as someone once said. I forget who. Someone on this site. And ever since I read it I've been waiting until I turned 18 so I could say it. Exciting story, eh?

So yeah, I'm going to college soon, apparently for "game art and animation". I'm gonna have some art classes, so hopefully that'll mean I'll have shit to upload for you =].

I'mma try to squeeze out one more pixel before I head off, a present that true pixel fans shall appreciate (mostly PJers). Yes I have a plan. Get excited.

PS: I've been hanging out here recently: (4chan/vp/)best pokemon hangout evar. Apparently 18+.. well I guess it's just legal now... But yeah, I like pokemon...

Gonna go see Scott Pilgrim soon... anyone else excited? No... Okay....

OH YEAH, just started a new website, we steal music from people, it's the shit:

yeah so yeah...
think that's it...

also I made this mc chris remix… because he's awesome.

I think that's really it this time.


my life may or may not be taking a turn for the better, I guess we'll find out...


also, the DA in the title is me saying "Da", a corruption of "the", in exclamation; it does not stand for deviant art. thank you for understanding.later. for realz yo.

The voices told me to

Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
- Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
- Post them here for everyone to guess.
- Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
- No Searching/looking at comments/asking people or anything, only things you know off the top of your head. DON'T CHEAT!

So if you know any of these, post in a comment here. DON'T CHEAT!

These are most likely my favorite movies, unless I forgot one. Not necessarily my fav quotes but still good ones.

1.) It's only forever, not long at all.
2.) Have you ever thought about doing things differently?
3.) But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty you need only look into a mirror.
4.) Then I shall prepare something special. Perhaps I'll make you disappear.
5.) Oh, my baby! Are you all right? Are you emotionally tramautized?
6.) I don't want to survive, I want to live!
7.) It's more comfortable for you to label me as insane.
8.) I don't have as much time as I need to see everything, but that is what makes it so special.
9.)Your name makes no matter to me, so long as I may call you my own.
10.)It was a pleasure meeting you, even if you are my least favorite vegetable!
11.)Yeah, but so what? Everybody's weird.
12.)This is a lot harder than it looks on the Internet.
13.)I often wondered if you and my son bonded because neither of you was fond of speaking. You're very kind. You must pardon my manners; I haven't slept in many nights.
14.)You know, I've never really liked paying bills. I don't think I'm gonna do that, either.
15.)I'm not stupid, I know everyone thinks I am, I just don't like answering stupid questions.


I kinda wanna start posting random crap in my journal... hope you guys don't mind.

I just recently decided to start a sonic fan website which has pictures and descriptions of every character from all the different series.

It was good practice for designing and programming.

There is still more content to be added, but it's a kind of site where we'll never be quite done, so it'll keep being updated. But now it has enough content to be interesting so I decided to post here. If your a fan of sonic/interested, check it out.
