Currently playing: Call of Cthulhu – Dark Corners of the Earth

The first time I played Doom it scared the frak out of me. Now there’s something meatier. Literally, meatier. Well, okay, Doom had a lot of meat chunks in it, but they were alien meat chunks. Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth has human meat chunks. And sometimes they’re not even chunks, just maggot ridden corpses. Now, I don’t play many video games these days, but I know…

The Call of Cthulhu as an animated kid show? Disney Spills The Beans. -Robert M. Price, The Daily Lurker Anaheim, CA – Today, a spokesman for Disney Studios announced that the latest in their long series of family-adapted classics will be H.P.

In my head: What shall we do with the drunken sailor” – Traditional

I keep wanting to blog about how I’m learning to play the guitar, but I’m too busy playing the guitar to do it.  I guess that means it’s going pretty well, but me – the perpetual perfectionist – am unhappy that after my first four days of learning still haven’t mastered the G major to C major transition smoothly and instantly. I know I need to be patient (and fortunately,…

In my head: “I will follow you into the dark” – Death Cab For Cutie

I told myself a few weeks ago that I was going to make it my priority to work on my phone photo book. Obviously I neglected to rank that priority, because it seems to be even lower than taking out the trash. Yup. I’ve done exactly 0% work on it. Well, if you count looking at a couple of the photos I was thinking of including, then maybe it gets bumped up…

Wanna-be, good-for-nothing, amateur hackers with nothing better to do than make life miserable for everyone else can kiss my ass. What I’m refering to, of course, is the fact that my site was recently hacked into (likely through this blogging software – that’s what I get for going free), and after a great deal of trouble was able to restore most of the entire deleted file structure, sans about a year’s…

I hate it when I’ve got something in my head that I just can’t get to come out in art form. For example, I’ve been working on this new piece the last couple of days. Now, most of my digital art stuff doens’t take me more than a day or so. There are exceptions, of course, but this one has taken a bit longer than usual. Originally, I had this idea…

“I have grown so tired of the same old thing” – Jack Skellington

My job is weakening me. Jading me. It’s making me a worse person. I so look forward to the weekends, because it allows me a break from it all, and to recover my humanity. This is a good thing, becuase lately, by the end of the week… I am one mean bitch. It’s an easy thing to become when the majority of the people you get to deal with at work…
