Now that SidekickGirl has its own dA page, all Sidekick Girl related art will be posted there instead of here.

Which means I need to create non-Sidekick Girl art for this page.

So many ideas.

Sidekick Girl is getting its own official DeviantArt page.  

I'll be posting my own artwork still on my page here, but most of the Sidekick Girl art coming out from now on will end up over on SidekickGirl, so make sure it go and watch!

So yeah, you know you've stayed up too late hunched over drawing when you lay back and your breast bone cracks.

It's an unpainful but extremely distrubing feeling.

Yeah. Finally plugged my tablet back in. Apparently it's a lot easier to draw on the tablet on the table top than on your lap. Whodathunkit?

Soon, it will be time to clean out the crap in the gallery. Ugh. Just gotta figure out how to delete deviations.

I've realized two things within the past twenty minutes. One is that, for about three months, I completely forgot that DeviantArt existed. Seriously. It might have something to do with my computer dying and needing a new one and then forgetting to switch over bookmarks or whatever, but that was sure strange.  So if anyone tried to contact me and/or has been waiting for me to respond or accept a request, I am SO sorry. Wow.

The second thing I realized is that I haven't drawn anything in months. Well, aside from the webcomic. But one comic page a week isn't much drawing. And since it's the comic, I feel a bit obligated to draw it so that one drawing a week isn't really drawn just for the heck or love of drawing. So I haven't drawn anything for MYSELF in maybe . . . four months? Wow. This sucks.

So I need to get back into the habit of sketching each day but first I think I need to kick it off an actual finished picture. But what to draw? Any suggestions?

Neat!

I've seen previews for the History Channel's Life After Humans (or whatever it's called). I thought a few times about trying to catch it but I never did. Then I was up at 3am (horray, insomnia) and I caught one. And it happened to be the one about Detroit. Which was exciting and depressing since it's clear most of Detroit already looks like humans have died out. It's true.

But it was still an amazing coincidence that the only episode that I watched (accidentally) was the one on my city.
  • Listening to: On the Rise - DHSAB
. . . is so TOTALLY stuck in my head.

And it's driving me a bit crazy.

The good kind of crazy.
  • Listening to: On the Rise - DHSAB
. . . but I stayed for the love.

I suggest to any webcomic struggling for readership to spend fifteen dollars and advertise on Something Positive or Questionable Content for a day.  Cuz holy crap, the hits are astronomical.

The rules are something like
• Pick 20 movies
• Look up on IMDB, find quotes
• Guessers, please don't use Google cuz that just makes you a big fat cheat-face.

1. "Aw, you brought that tall man some flowers." (KatWylder)

2 "Well you see it's a matter of life after death. Now that he's dead I have a life. " (eggonza)

3. "Ranger Brad, I'm a scientist. I don't believe in anything."

4. "It's always the same thing. It's when you start to become really afraid of death that you learn to appreciate life. Do you like life, sweetheart? (Yes) That's good, because I take no pleasure in taking life if it's from a person who doesn't care about it. "

5. "In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself."

6. "Don't pay anybody in advance. And don't ride in anything with a Capissen 38 engine, they fall right out of the sky. " (Varethane)

7. "I got a full-on robot chubby. "

8. "Dos thus have thou a mug of ale for me and me mate, for he hath been pitched in battle for a fortnight and has the king's thirst for the frosty brew dos thou might have for thus!" (krono0666)

9. "That's the beauty of argument, if you argue correctly, you're never wrong." (krono0666)

10. "Do I look like a cat to you boy? Am I jumpin' around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree? Am I drinking milk from a saucer? DO YOU SEE ME EATING MICE? "

11. "Don't mock me my friend. It's a condition of mental divergence. I find myself on the planet Ogo, part of an intellectual elite, preparing to subjugate the barbarian hordes on Pluto. But even though this is a totally convincing reality for me in every way, nevertheless Ogo is actually a construct of my psyche. I am mentally divergent, in that I am escaping certain unnamed realities that plague my life here. When I stop going there, I will be well. Are you also divergent, friend? "

12. "Good evening Sir, my name is Steve. I come from a rough area. I used to be addicted to crack but now I am off it and trying to stay clean. That is why I am selling magazine subscriptions. " (pyskwynn)

13. "I've been to gold towns, silver towns, I've even been to turquoise towns. But I have never been to a bat shit town. Can't wait to see the women! "

14. "Wrinkled, wrinkled little star... hope they never see the scars. "

15. "Did you know that on several occasions... he touched me? . . .
That wasn't true. Made it up. Shouldn't have done that. Sorry. "
(krono0666)

16. "I know I'm not one of your favorites, and I'm not welcomed in your house, but I could really use some attention."

17. "Look, it's been swell, but the swelling's gone down. " (MonkeyDragon)

18. "Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?" (eggonza)

19. "A peaceful, uneventful day in a town much like your own. Then suddenly, without warning... ATOMIC HOLOCAUST!"

20. "I am your father, Luke. Give in to the dark side of the force, you knob."



I admit, some of these movies are really corny and possibly something to be ashamed of, but I don't care cuz I love them anyway.
There are few things in the world that I hate more than American football.

People always say you should never hitchhike because you never know who is going to pick you up.

But they also say that you should never pick up a hitchhiker because you never know who you're picking up.

So what happens if a serial killer driver picks up a serial killer hitchhiker?  I have a feeling only hilarity can ensue.

I might have to write a screenplay.

I am not surprised, though I think this has a bit a mysogonistic slant.   So "Cool" things are boy things and "selfish and vain" things are girlie thing?  Color me slightly offended here.

I am currently in the process of developing a new, nonviolent method of deer-hunting.

Based on the knowledge of a deer's propensity to drop dead of fright due to a sudden, terrifying shock, Surprise Hunting(TM) would use the miracle of nature as its ammunition.

Instead of training oneself to load ammo and accurately shoot a rifle or bow and arrow, one would merely concentrate on the art of stealth . . . and of jumping suddenly up behind an innocently grazing buck and screaming "SURPRISE!" Of course, certain guidelines must be followed if Surprise Hunting(TM)is ever to be eligible to be considered as a professional sport. You can't just shout out any old sound. Your cry should be a definable word. "SURPRISE!", of course, would be any Surprise Hunter's weapon of choice. However, other words, such as "BOO!" and "DIE!" would be acceptable. Jumping out from behind a birch tree and screaming "GYAAAAARRRP!" is just plain bad form and is to be strictly avoided at all times.

Surprise Hunting(TM) will of course need to be practiced in otherwise restricted hunting grounds. The last thing one would wish to do is jump up yelling "FLAWLESS VICTORY!" behind a deer in the process of being targeted by a lethally armed hunter.

Should this sport become popular, I have absolute confidence that another sport, Surprise Homicide(TM) will be the next big thing on the horizon. This of course will consist of jumping up behind elderly people with heart conditions. In anticipation for the success of this endeavor, I have already claimed the trademark.







Surprise Hunting(TM) of me
oh, and Surprise Homicide is (tm) of me too.
