markers [26 Jun 2005|01:13am]
[ mood | cold ]

In keeping with the promise that I wouldn't just stop using this journal altogether after moving to my new one and would instead use this one for art, I come with the first official post as such.

I've always thought I was more or less content with my abilities in the different media I normally work with. I can rock the hell out of pencil, rock a similar amount out of charcoal, own the ass of acrylic, watercolor, and ink. The one medium I've never been trained in and never really focused on working with before was markers. I had one peice of marker art in my ap portfolio, and I basically used them the same as inks, no shading or anything, just lines and white.

Anyway, recently Andrew found a pack of Roseart's from Walmart that I bought forever ago just to write in and whatnot, and decided while watching My Fair Lady to experiment using them the way several artists use Prismacolors or Copics.

The results aren't as bad as I anticipated, but I still need to do a lot more practice with them before I feel I'm even close to as good with them as I am with the other media. (I'm confident that it can be done, at least, because I used to suck some serious balls with acrylics and now they're what I work best in.) I really wish Mr. Dennis had covered markers before he retired. I'd have sooner chocked on them before I'd have asked that twinkie-scarfing bitch of a temp for any lessons with them. :x

I just finished downloading Billboard's Top 100 songs of 1998. Oh man...sweet, sweet nostalgia. I blame you entirely, by the way, which means if there's any song besides Iris you want, it's so yours.

Anyway, on the subject of the 90s, you guys can help me out here. Tell me your top 10 90's songs, because downloading these huge billboard packs takes a long time and lots of space...downloading single songs will be easier. :o

Holiest of Holy Shits. Oh my -god-.

You'll never believe what I just saw on tv. Actually, you probably will because you're not me and don't have the same life experiences with which to appreciate this most amazing of events.

I was just talking last week to Rei about videos from my childhood, and cartoon episodes that I used to have taped and watch obsessively because I thought they were the coolest things ever. My absolute favorite of childhood videos was a vhs of Talespin with parts one and two of an episode where Balu and Louis meet an archeologist chick in the middle east who found the Lost Bells of Tenabula. They get chased/captured by some illuminati-esque mercenary group led by this snake with a metal jaw. Tenabula itself was a city where everything was made of gold, they had cultic worship of scarabs, and posessed a weapon powerful enough to destroy the world. To punish the city for creating the weapon, it was swallowed into the sand, -but- if the bells were rang correctly, the city would rise from the sand again. The metal-jawed snake dude wanted to raise the city to get the weapon, right? But the archeologist girl was the only one who could read the ancient writing as to the right way to ring the bells, hence why he kidnaps her.

I used to play archeologist with my dogs acting out this story, and I guess just reading that it's pretty obvious where my love for stuff along those lines comes from. (Ancient cities, anachronistic weapons, cultic worships, etc. etc. etc.) Anyway, we lost the vhs of it when we moved from our lake house wayyy back in '96. I've always mentioned it in passing with my brother and whatnot when we're on the subject of old things we used to like all, "Hey, you remember that Talespin episode we used to watch all the time with the Lost Bells of Tenabula? Wasn't that just the shit?"

Well, it's been nine years since I last saw it, but all powers that be bless the Disney channel because at 3:30 am this evening Talespin was on tv, and...and...guess which episode? That's right!

For Whom The Bell Clangs- Part One.

I could have died from the sheer joy of it. It was like a dream, really. I know I'm a total loser for being so happy, but really, I thought it was lost forever. Now that I know what it's called, I can probably track down a tape of it again. I even learned another fun fact in the process: Tim Curry was the voice of the metal-jawed snake guy! xD

Oh I am happy. So very happy. I'd dance if my floor weren't covered in dirty clothes and empty water bottles. ;o;

bellydance,etc... [06 Jun 2005|10:02pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Tonight's class was hard, but really exciting. We did fan work! Apparently Onca's been taking flamenco lately, so she decided to make tonight a fusion of flamenco and bellydance, passed out some silk fans, and taught us a bunch of interesting moves. I now know how to open a fan seductively at any point on my body. (Rock on.)

I talked to Onca about her sword dancing classes, and hopefully I'll get to enroll in her next series. I think sword dances are the sexiest of all kinds of tribal dance, so I'm really all into knowing how to do that properly.

They also have a new dvd available of their last show, Secrets of Ashes. I'd especially like to get a copy for you, dear. I think you'd really enjoy it. I talked for a bit to Onca about how you're getting into the dance, and have interests in the design of it. She said she'd be more than happy to send you plenty of resources if you like.

So yeah, now I have to buy a silk fan to practice with, and hopefully a sword as well. *smile*

Now for other random notes of the day-

I'm not going to be able to make those icons afterall. Not because some people would rather I didn't (although I do hold your opinion in high regard), but because I simply don't feel like it anymore. It's mostly that I'm too lazy to find a profile picture of him and then redraw it and all that, but also because I need to be amused to do good work. It's kind of old news to me now, and like all jokes about pop-culture happenings, it's gotten kind of old. Sorry.

I haven't forgotten that I need to scan that magazine, either. It's just that my scanner is being a fuckhead for some reason, and refuses to scan anything.

Oh, and I updated my MSN again. As it was taking me through my settings, it showed me my blocked/unblocked list. I never knew where that was before! Turns out, now this is funny, that Max actually -was- blocked! xD I never blocked him because I didn't even know how. kaizer_vator_ii denies he had anything to do with it, I'm pretty sure Rei wouldn't care enough to have done it, so who actually did it remains a mystery to me. I'm not sure what the etiquette regarding that is. I really didn't block him, but he was for all intensive purposes blocked on my messenger. He accused me of all this shit, I called him a paranoid ass (because I honestly thought my messenger was just -not- working, right?), we had at it. I lost another friend in the course of the drama. Not that I miss talking to either of them, but damn. All that shit over a misunderstanding. It really makes you think, huh? I suppose a valuable moral to be learned here is this:

Always sign out of your messenger service because you never know who's going to block someone drama-prone and start the dramatics up.

catching up...again. [06 Jun 2005|06:24pm]
[ mood | a bit tired ]

Hey, look at this! Isn't that great? Once it's completed, I'll try to go. It reminds me a great deal of the circular clocks of Egypt and South America, not to mention the beautiful stella clock of the Girsu. I could ramble about why it does, but I learned a while back that nobody cares, so I'll spare you. (Hint: there's a connection! Read up on it sometime.)

Alrighty, now down to this tagging business-

from ichigo_neko and some others of you. Jakob and Audrey maybe?-

Rules: Things you enjoy, even when no one around you wants to go out and play. What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level? Make a list, post it to your journal... and then tag 5 friends and ask them to post it to theirs.

x. Singing, especially classical opera songs. I'm not sure what's therapuetic about High E, but there's definately something.
x. Writing songs.
x. Reading books usually about history.
x. Reading magazines usually about fashion.
x. Sleeping.
x. Drawing.
x. Writing novela's, screenplays, etc.
x. Making fun of stupid things.
x. Doing fancy makeup.
x. Ebay.

My tagee's? Whoever wants to do it.

And from splitpea, who asked nicely. :p

List your current six favorite songs, then choose six others who have to do the same.

1.) Mothra's Song- The Peanuts
It sounds like an ancient hymn, and this is supposedly because the first verse was written by an anonymous scholar of ancient Polynesian tongues. It's hypnotizing, beautiful, and flawless.

2.) Papamama ~Nozomare nu Baby~ - Miyavi
The music of this song is fantastic. It's an indescribable mix of a sped up funeral march, hair metal, and alternapop. Like I said, indescribable. Aside from all that, the song is obviously heartfelt, well-performed, and emotionally relateable. While most of Miyavi's music seems sincere, this song almost feels like it's coming from a place he hasn't explored in his music before, and it's that much more enjoyable for it.

3.) Stein um Stein- Rammstein
All of Rammstein's music has always been consistently impressive for how detailed their instrumental compositions are, how intricately their harmonies are carried out, and how well they obviously understand music theory. This song is not only all of that, but like the song I mentioned before this, it's clearly coming from a whole other level this band has never shown us before. It's sincere, relateable, and beautiful.

4.) Oleada- Julieta Venegas
Julieta's voice is beautiful, and her lyrics are always extremely well-written. This song has more of a campo feel compared to the rest of her cd, but oddly enough I think that really adds to the song's emotions. I guess one reason I like this song so much is because most of the time I feel exactly the same way.

5.) Cain- Tiamat
This song will probably always make a favorite song list by me, whether current or otherwise. Perfect, perfect, perfect. Edlund's voice is to die for, the music captures the atmosphere of the song's setting beautifully, it's historically informed and accurate, it's a well-carried metaphor, and I just love it.

6.) Major Tom- David Bowie
Just the name of this artist speaks for himself, doesn't it? I'll just say 'ditto' for all of the strengths I mentioned, minus the sincerity. You know, because...he hasn't been an astronaut. xD

I also tag whoever wants to do this one.


Well, I'm off to bellydancing. That is, if it's not been cancelled because of the weather.

I'm Tom Brokaw, bitch! [05 Jun 2005|10:08pm]
[ mood | entertained ]

There are seriously people who don't know about the Sucko le Cemu loser?

Being that I'm so kind as to save your eyes the trouble of reading a long, serious report on the matter, let me give you an extremely breif explanation:

Daishi is stupid. Stupid Daishi did meth. The Tokyo police were looking for druggies. The Tokyo police caught stupid Daishi doing meth. Now stupid Daishi is going down! xD

Well, ok, it's not actually confirmed yet that they caught him doing meth, but they took him downtown anyway on charges for it. While I guess some people would want me to make a big, bold, flashy statement that it isn't confirmed, you can't arrest people without warrants, evidence, etc. You can't just arrest someone because you kind of have a hunch that they deal with drugs, you'd have to either see them make the transactions, find it in their possession, see it in the bloodstream, etc. (Although really, they didn't need to see him do it or any of that as far as I'm concerned. He looks like a frikken crack addict in person, and if you haven't seen him up close, don't argue with me because I have.)

To expand upon the story, now countless retards are quite upset. Some don't understand that drug use in Japan is a major felony, some are worried that the band's sucking days are over, some are just dumb and want to fight the hand of justice at work by sending him one thousand paper cranes. Whatever their reactions, they're all pretty firm on one pretty dumb point; they "support" Daishi.

Support what, exactly? The world might never know. It's been speculated by some that they support his choice to do drugs, or support his choice to jeopardize his career and the career of those around him, or even support his decision to support a cartel who funds international terrorist groups. Most experts agree, however, that it is far more likely that indeed it is none of the above that they truly wish to express support for, and instead they merely wish to support are their ongoing fantasies of laying him one day.

So there you have it.

Semi-relatedly, would anyone like an icon of Daishi doing meth ala the iPod design that says 'iStupid'? I've already got my iBum, and iStupid would just be too many duotone icons for one userimage group. It'd be fun to make, though, so yeah...if you want one, just ask.

you really need to shut up. [03 Jun 2005|03:42pm]
[ mood | pissed off ]

I am really sick of people always saying that Miyavi is either a. retarded or b. a drug user. Considering these sentiments come from people who 100 percent of the time speak no Japanese, thus having nothing to go on, they assume these things from what means? That he smiles a lot? That he dresses weird? He actually *gasp* does things the slightest bit differently from what the other cookie cutter "rock" stars are doing? God forbid someone be happy and original without drugs or a mental disease, oh no, we can't have that. It would throw off the balance of the universe, thus plunging our existence into a dark, menacing void for the next period of eternity.

What the fuck is wrong with these people?

Just because you're too stupid/uneducated/ill-read/lazy to understand the things he says, the references he makes, etc., doesn't mean he's like you...stupid/uneducated/ill-read/lazy oh, and a drug user, of course.

Go to hell and take your collective IQ of 7 with you!

music and whatnot [01 Jun 2005|05:32pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Here, have some randomly addicting Spanish music that I haven't been able to stop listening to recently~

Most of you guys would probably recognize their genres to be just hip hop, but the first is kumbia and the second is reggaeton for those who know the difference. They're both enjoyable, though. If you miss old school rap music from the 1998-2001 era (you know, before it all sounded the same), you'll probably like these songs.

That's like...not even 1/5 of his collection. You should see his room. You'd have to see it to believe it. x_o

Hey, don't a few of you on my list like that Ryuuhei Matsuda guy?

Interview Magazine's special this month is on Japanese pop culture's cutting edge (designers, photographers, artists, musicians, actors, etc.) They have an interview with him, as well as several other people which might be of interest to some of you. From what I can remember...Asano, Utada, Rip Slyme, Guitar Wolf, etc. And of course, being that it's an American magazine, all of the interviews are in English.

We have a subscription to the magazine, so I don't know if it's out in bookstores or whatnot yet, but look out for it~

Oh, and check out my new icon. General Greivous is so damn cool.

And hey...wow. Today was my last day of high school. :D How weird-feeling yet joyous. (At least, I think it is. My chemistry teacher hasn't called to tell me otherwise.)

Guess what they're making a movie of? The Decameron! That makes me really happy. If you don't know why it does, look it up and you'll see immediately. What makes me unhappy are some of the actors. Mischa Barton and Hayden Christenson? Aye. But...hopefully it'll be good anyway.

Speaking of things being good, my scanner has finally decided to start working again. This is great news for Mega Electro Jesus as it means I can color and tone my concepts for her finally. But while I was scanning, I thought you guys might enjoy this.

It's a little-known fact that I spend most of my school day drawing pointless things. It's an even lesser-known fact that what I draw is almost without fail one of two things. A) A pointless manga which will never be finished. B) Fashion designs. I even went so far this semester as to give my fashion designs a label to fall under...Machiavelita. I had my notebook upstairs with me today and decided to scan what drawings I have in it (which isn't many since I just got this notebook last week), and share them for no reason in particular.

I'm so bored.

Earlier today I had the great pleasure of seeing Mothra on tv for the first time, well, the ending of it anyway. I loved it! It seems like all Japanese movies are so damn cheap these days...but Mothra, man, you could tell money went into it. And the song those chicks sang? "Mothuraaaa~" So pretty. I'm not much of one for cosplay, but if I ever do cosplay anything, it'd definately be one of those girls. I looked up some old posters of it, and they had the greatest captions like "MIGHTIEST MONSTER IN ALL CREATION!" and "RAVAGING A UNIVERSE FOR LOVE." Were those girls his lovers or something? They seemed like preistess', but like I said, I only saw the ending. Searching under the Japanese title 'Mosura', I found some really weird websites featuring pictures like this one:

That's just begging its way into icondom.

So yeah, I watched Mothra, and then later we went out for Mexican and to the movies. We ended up seeing Episode Three again, and it was just as awesome (if not more so) the second time around.

I really need to get my eyebrows done. Wearing colorful eyeshadow with thick brows makes me look like a drag queen. *o*;

Atlantis and Edgar Cayce...riiiight. [16 May 2005|09:38pm]
Ugh my god, I just saw the worst thing ever on tv. Digging for Truth is a fairly new series on the History Channel which features this really annoying guy who likes to play archeologist/scientist/botanist/whatever the hell he feels like for the current episode, and come to his own "inspired" conclusions on what the truth is. I say inspired because this guy is obviously thick as a the Great Pyramid of Giza which was the focus of his show tonight.

I tried to watch it, really I did, because I was bored and not yet ready to go upstairs. Being that I'm very openly biased when it comes to which ancient cultures I like and dislike, watching something on Egypt was already a stretch for me, much less the most over-commercialized Egyptian landmarks of all. However, the show was supposed to focus on a less popular idea of how old the Pyramids are, who built them, how, etc. and being that I'm all about them dating to at least 10,000 BC, not being built by humans alone, and what have you, I figured I'd watch it.

It started innocently enough. A few shots of Giza, some fun facts on the pyramid's basal acreage, an overview of the popular and easily disproven history people learn in school. Then the guy rides a camel out to them to meet with some guy who he describes as "definately not an archeologist". I'm starting to stand up as soon as I hear that, right? Even if he were an anthropologist it wouldn't be in his line of work or expertise to date any sort of construction, much less say how it was made. I say this all the time, but really. Anthropologists are not archeologists; archeologists are not anthropologists. Stick to your disciplines, people!

It turned out much worse than I feared. I figured, "Oh fabulous, an anthropologist playing archeologist with a total loser." Instead, this man turned out to be neither, but instead an avid follower of the 19th century what the show called theorist Edgar Cayce. If your what-the-fuck-ometer's not shooting through the roof at that name, let me help it out. Edgar Cayce was a famous psychic during the height of automatic writing, ouiji boards, and general occultism among the bored Victorian aristocracy. He believed that the Pyramids were built by the people of Atlantis as monuments to their lost empire. The man the show's retarded host was meeting with was going to prove to us how the people of Atlantis built the Pyramids.

Atlantis is not my area of expertise, so I won't comment on it's existance one way or another. However, I will say that you simply cannot base a legitimate historical investigation based on a culture you can't even prove existed. Until we have artifacts, locations, writings, and all the other good things that constitute proven ancient societies, it's just stupid to base a study of one culture on the premise that it was built by another ancient society that may or may not have even been real, you know?

So yeah. I'm not about to watch some idiots chasing Atlantean ghosts in the Pyramids because some psychic said that's what went down. Aye aye aye.


Aside from that, I've had a typically boring day, and I feel like I'm getting a cold. I ended up buying The Cave by Saramago last night. What a surprise that a small southern town's Barnes and Noble only carries the Noble Prize winner from my list of desired books. (Ha.) I'm pleased with it, though. Saramago's a brilliant writer. He seems to really like his protagonists being accompanied by stray dogs. In Blindness there was the dog of tears, and in this book there's Found. I wonder why? Maybe it has something to do with a comparison between human's and other animals.

Oh my -god-. Ya'll, look at this shit that Tracy found.

Tell me that's not the most retarded fucking thing you've ever seen! The whole "Japan is the land of cute animals, bubbles, and light happy time" is especially rich. Manga hair gel? I mean, wtf, which marketing genius thought of that, because they need to be shot. Like right now. By me.

I think I'm going to make something equally ridiculous like Nascar perfume and offer a free trip to Darlington, SC. It'd have a marketing ploy similar to what follows.

In order for it to work, you need to listen to Lynard Skinnard in your head. Any song will do, although Sweet Home Alabama is most appropriate.

I am SO bored lately. Utterly bored, and entirely unmotivated. You know how much that -sucks-?

Anyway. House of Wax was highly entertaining, and I'd recommend it to you all, especially if you dislike Paris Hilton. It's rare that I enjoy a horror movie, and though not at all scary, this was an enjoyable film. Its characters were believable, its scenes were well coordinated, and actually *gasp* had some character development! I'd even see it again, and that's really saying something.

Oh, I almost got hit in the head with a bat in gym today. This was mostly my fault as I don't pay any attention to what's going on around me...as in, at all. I was walking towards the bench, reading a book, and completely oblivious to the guy batting. He swung too hard, and the bat -flew- out of his hands, whirling at a billion miles per hour about a -milimeter- from my face. x_x Had I been walking just a tad faster, I'd probably be in the hospital, disfigured, blind or otherwise useless.

Nuetron died. You guys remember him? He was the sweet goldfish from chemistry who I was so thrilled to have in the classroom. I used to love watching him swim around, and would talk to him before and after class. He was sick all last week, and Mr. Jeffords said he finally "passed away" on Sunday. I guess he knows how sensitive I am, because otherwise I doubt he'd have chosen those exact words. I really want to do something to commemorate him. You know, some ancient cultures believed that souls were elevated by thoughts, care, and concern for something, even if it were no longer alive. Should that be true, though I'm not big on religious superstition, I'd like to at least give him something material for people to remember him by.

It's not been a good two months. Not even considering losing someone important to me, how fucked all of April was, dying fish, and flying bats, it's been pretty bad. Nothing seems to interest me anymore. Everything I hear is something I've already heard, and everything I see is something I've already seen. All of my music is old, all of my interests I've researched, and really, well, about the only things I really can seem to feel enthusiastic for lately are singing and makeup. Speaking of the two, I might update with a little of both later...maybe. If I feel like it. (Which chances are I won't...)

sick, sad world. [05 May 2005|10:31pm]
[ mood | sick ]

I just found out the most awful thing in the world tonight.

Ok, like, there's this restaurant we have in the Carolina's (I don't know if you guys have it elsewhere or not) called Hops. It's mostly known for it's specialty beers and burgers. This is of little consequence to me, however, seeing as how I don't drink beer, and I've been a vegetarian since I was seven. My family likes it a lot, though, so we end up eating there at least one or twice per couple of months. Anyway, to cut a long story short, having eaten there a regular basis, I eventually came to like a dish composed of nacho's with black beans and rice. Purely vegetarian, right? Now, you vegetarians will recognize the following conversation as it always follows any menu with black beans.

Me: Miss, do ya'lls black beans have any meat in them? Like do you use meat to flavor them or anything like that?
Waitress: I don't think so, but I'll go check with the kitchen.
Me: Ok.
*She goes and returns.*
Waitress: They don't.
Me: Are you sure?
Waitress: Yes.

So for a few years now I've periodically repeated this interogation, just to be on the safe side. Each time, I've been reassured that my meal would contain no product or by-product of a dead animal, and each time I've ordered the beans as a side dish.

Tonight, I have the following conversation with our waitress.

Me: I'll have the nacho's plain, with a side of black beans and rice.
Waitress: Honey, are you a vegetarian?
Me: Yeah.
Waitress: Our black beans are made with bacon grease.
Me: o___o
Waitress: I'm a vegetarian too, and I was shocked to find that out.
Me: But, but...are you...so many times I've been told...
Waitress: I'm really sorry, sweetie.

The manager came out and applogized for my prolonged deception, and gave us free deserts, but I still feel sick and dirty. I don't want any sort of corpse rotting in my stomach. Eating something that was once filled with a soul feels just...unspeakably horrible to me. Vile, primitive, disgusting, etc. The grease is just as bad. What a horrible thing to find out, but at least I won't order the beans ever again.

...

Other than that, today was pretty uneventful. I won for having the best satire in English class, and the prize was a copy of Oscar Wilde quotes. I like Oscar Wilde a great deal, so that made me happy.
