It Burns

May 19, 2010

So apparently today is the day that I’m one year closer to the day when I can be legally incarcerated everywhere. Looking on the bright side, it also means I’ll be able to legally drink in more places as well. Pros and cons. For some reason I find myself wanting to learn how to knit. My family will be proud to know how manly I’ve turned out to be.

I’m going to let myself slack off today, and will probably post the Saya no Uta review tomorrow (unless I finish it in the next couple hours, which could happen). Seeing as I want this post to be more than just the little I’ve said, I’m going to post some Sekien no Inganock art that caught my eye. I really love whoever draws these, it’s a great break from moe-blobs.

Here’s to hoping that 19 candles still isn’t enough to burn a cake.

Double-click and copy that blank line and then paste it in front of your text to write backwards.

It’s not Lupus

June 6, 2009

Alright, so…

Doing my final project for my anatomy class. A case study, for a particular illness. Inspired by Dr. House, I chose lupus. Doing my research, I come across this:

Lupus

Note that SLE refers to systemic lupus erythematosus, known simply as "lupus".

Now, I dunno about you, but I barely understood a couple of the words in that. And I’m taking this course. I suppose that’s what happens when you consult medical texts for information, but… damn. That’s some heavy language. Tell me what you think.

I Can Has Arting?

June 2, 2009

After a far too large amount of time, I successfully was able to complete my first vector drawing. I can’t speak for others, but my vector “art” is really just days of tracing in Adobe Flash. Basically it’s art for a moron such as myself that can’t actually draw but has lots of time on his hands.

When we consider the fact that nowadays hanging a chair from a roof with a board nailed through it is considered “art”, I guess calling vectors the same isn’t that inconceivable. I’m pleasantly surprised at how it turned out, but wouldn’t mind learning how to digitally color things nicely. Methinks I’ll put the lineart up for download, so anyone that wants to try (and teach me :P) can do so.

Here’s a picture of the new b’dass sunglasses, by the way.

Spiffy, eh? The things are so light sometimes I forget they’re there, which is bad considering I’ve almost lost them already.

Judging by the weather outside I’m going to be playing tennis in the bowels of Hell yet again. Let’s hope I don’t melt.

Wish me luck,

Soviets Win

May 31, 2009

Soviets are officially made of win. Not much to say today besides the fact that I got new sunglasses (pretty b’dass ones, too. I’ll post a picture later) and that I’ll be going to some random collectibles convention later today. Hope I find something worth buying.

Late Return

May 30, 2009

Aloha good folks!

Some random hunter dude cut open the bears stomach so I could get out, so here I am a couple weeks late. That and the fact that I’ve been extremely lazy since I got back, and have had a bunch of stuff on my plate. Anyway, first down to the trip: it rained every single of the days we were out, save for one where it rained just a little, then was actually clear. NOT sunny, though. On the way back home, we were all basically looking at the ball of fire in the sky like cavemen exclaiming “WTF IS THAT!?”. I also got a haircut on the trail. Well, if you can consider me sawing off my hair with an X-Acto-like blade a haircut, then it is.

The knife at the bottom, the blade(s) I used in the center, and a mechanical pencil for scale.

The knife at the bottom, the blade(s) I used in the center, and a mechanical pencil for scale.

At first I was using the whole knife, but then I realized I could use the blade more efficiently alone. Why did I do this at all, you ask? Well, when you’re wandering around in the bush with half your weight on your back, the last thing you need is for your stupid bangs to get wet and in your eyes. Which happened on the first day. Alot. As soon as we had a fire going I sawed off about an inch of my bangs, and some from the left side of my head, tossing it into the fire when I finally finished. What made it even better is that we cooked some b’dass steaks about 20 minutes later, and those steaks were quite possibly the highlight of the trip. Nothing beats steak cooked over an open fire. NOTHING.

As a final note relevant to the Nitinat trip, while we were doing our last 2 hour canoe venture across one of the lakes, we ended up talking about what we were going to eat first for all 2 hours. A & W Uncle Burgers won by a landslide, which we eventually ate as a huge group when we had the chance. I also had a Mozza Burger.

If you ever have the chance to do a part of the West Coast Trail, I really recommend you do it. Although I admit I would have much rather preferred having sun and wonderful weather, I still had a blast. Make sure you take reliable dry bags, though, because I’m pretty sure they saved my life. I didn’t take many photographs thanks to the weather, but I’ll see about making an online album or just posting the few I have on LoL.

Good to be back,

Memory Fail

April 29, 2009

So there I am getting some hiking/camping gear downtown. God knows what the total amount is, all I can tell is that my wallet is feeling pathetically thin. Anyway, I end up grabbing some slices of garlic cheese pizza (damn good pizza, btw) while waiting for the bus, and eventually make my way out of downtown to the area in which I reside. I get off a couple stops earlier than normal, deciding on a whim to get some lip balm to take with me.

To hell with Burt and his Bees: the store had me fork over $5 for the little stick of lip balm no bigger than my pinky. What makes matters even “better” is that upon arriving home and commencing to pack my bag, I suddenly realize my little crapstick of balm is nowhere to be found. The only thing I have left witness that I even bought the thingis a little piece of the box that it came in, that somehow survived while it did not.

I’ve successfully checked off every damn thing on my list of stuff to get, minus sunblock and a knife, but it still drives me up a wall when I lose something right after buying it. Actually, to be honest, it bothers me if I lose anything at all…but I guess that can be said for many people.

Is this the human form of pedo bear or something?

The guy looks worse than pedobear...

Anyway, this post is really just an excuse to post this picture:

Don’t even bother asking me wtf this is, because I don’t really know. Click on it to get the full sized image, and also see if you can find the not-so-hidden “easter egg” of sorts.

Well, apparently it is a “creepy parody” of My Neighbor Totoro, and that information was supplied by a complete weaboo pro link-spamming friend of mine that REALLY NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. That’s right, you heard me, I know you’re reading this (or will eventually)! xD Anyway, thanks as always for knowing the information to everything and anything, and you really should just type a sentence instead of drawing crapics or linking me all the time :b.

Bye for now,
Tamart.
