mysterious, dark

mostly notes to self but if you share my tastes in media feel free to take this a recommendations

Currently Watching Schedule

- Monday -
uh ... nothing
- Tuesday -
nothing, again
- Wednesday -
Mythbusters - Always, man. Always.
Pen and Teller Tell a Lie - Just awesome, seriously.
- Thursday -
Un-Go - This is great. Crazy, but great. It's been a long time since I found a new supernatural detective show that was any good.
- Friday -
Young Justice - Not really thrilled with the fact that they want to bury us in teen romance, what has happened to my action show? Though they keep adding in little bits of awesomeness that keep me hanging around.
Persona 4 - Delicious animation. I'm behind right now but it's so pretty to watch.
Kung Fu Panda: LoA - What can I say, I like these characters. It's dorky but charming with fun action.
- Saturday -
My Little Pony: FiM - Would you believe this is good? I didn't at first but it is. It's hilarious.
- Sunday -
Hunter x Hunter - This is the new version. I love the clean animation and faster pacing. Plus, it's the same old awesome story, so how could this ever be wrong?
- any old day, I record this and watch when I'm bored or inking -
Dark Matters - Twisted in the best way, and all true, yay.

- Recently Caught Up On Comics -

Young Avengers - Absolutely fabulous. I am waiting for the latest issue of Children's Crusade right now and all hyped up about the big cliffhanger from the previous one.

Batman - Specifically, Streets of Gotham. It was good, full of complex twists and very grim, as I like my Batman stories to be. But I don't like Manhunter so those parts couldn't really grab my attention as much as the rest of it.

- Need to See -

Neverland miniseries (December 4th and 5th) - As if I would miss this! If it sucks, I'll be sad, but I have high hopes for it because I normally enjoy these sorts of re-imaginings. Even if they don't pan out the way I want them to, there's always at least some parts that I really enjoy or even get inspired by.

In non-media news, stuff is getting sent off to Dark Horse this week. Took forever to get it just right but I'm really proud of it. Only time will tell if that pride is misplaced.

Other than work, I've been able to do a little something cool. That being, be on a new podcast called Geekademia. It was fun. Interesting topics, which is a big plus, and would certainly like to debate and discuss various geeky things with these guys again. Would be a lot more active with that entire thing if I actually blogged/hung around forums like that, but given how often I update THIS thing I think it's obvious that I don't.

Next con is ...
Momocon, march 12th. I want to go, even though it's never that big of a deal. Hopefully I'll have my Un-Go cosplay done by that time too. And I miiiiight see if the guys from Geekademia want to go there.

OH, and I finished all 50k of NaNo in 10 days and am going to keep writing on the story sporadically through the month because there's more to tell. When it comes to marathon writing sprees, I'm awesome.

I don't expect anyone to read any of that. It's there for my own use later. And because, well, tonight was lonely and kinda suck so I needed to just be introspective. Tada. Now I'm gonna go back to hunting down Young Justice fanart, because that is awesome.

Hmm, real stuff. I hardly ever updated this journal for real because there's just not much going on. Publishers need to get back to us Hourglass Comics folk already. As do new artists because this sucks. Working through motorphobia slowly. Okay it's not quite that but there's no fancy word for what it really is. It snowed again, just a little, which was nice. Taught myself a new art style because MouseGuard is my new comic obsession and I had to learn how to draw proper fanart for it.

Making plans for MTAC, praying to god nothing goes wrong this time. Note to self; get fabric for new cosplay. Probably can't go to Momo because ... no one to go with. That's just how things are.

So, related topic, no birthday party for me. Which is nothing new so blah whatevs, will just go see my mom and watch a movie with her. And make cupcakes. I make awesome cupcakes man, you don't even know.

Oh, and it's almost Valentines Day. This year, say it with zombies.

NaNo storage

I'm going to keep my NaNoWriMo attempt here. Doing Kei and Ven's story in Ay, so that I can get a prize on Aywas if I complete a decent amount. Will be writing elsewhere and updating here just to keep it somewhere.

By the way, this is rated M. Yep, so, don't read it if that's not cool with you.
