Looks like everybody has fun costumes for Halloween judging by my dashboard. You guys are awesome, and I’m so jealous. Wish I had cool costume pics to post too, but I rarely dress up for Halloween because I’m a perfect storm of indecisiveness, procrastination, and frugality. I never put anything together. The last time I tried I was two years ago when I worked really hard on a mask of the Blue Spirit from Avatar, it was paper mache and cardboard and glue and tape and staples and paint and it fell apart as soon as I put it on because I don’t know how to make things, it LOOKED cool though when it was in one piece.
I digress, I’m not getting dressed up but through the magic of PHOTOSHOP I can wear all kinds of costumes this Halloween!
Here are some Halloween Photoshop Costumes!
An adorable vampire!
An adorable puppy!
An adorable Evil me
An adorable new hire on the Party Down team
An adorable 3 eyed guy
An adorable zombie
An adorable Heimdall
ROWSDOWER!!! (nothing adorable about that!)
Or the man of your dreams ;) (who is adorable of course)
There ya go! :D
On a separate more serious note…
Look… I don’t need to hear about you using my pictures as a masturbatory aid okay? That’s gross. If you’re going to masturbate to my pictures, whatever, that’s fine, I can’t do anything about it, just don’t TELL me about it, please. Not that… not that anybody’s ever told me… or even implied… anything like that to me, but ya know… I SUSPECT that it’s going on. I mean, why WOULDN’T that be going on? Look at that face up there, am I right? You’re probably diddling yourself as you read this. Gross! Okay? Just keep that sorta thing to yourself okay? It’s disturbing and I don’t want to hear about it at all ever anytime never forever and ever for eternity times infinity. Ever.
You know what, FINE, you can private message me about it if you ABSOLUTELY NEED TO TELL ME! Jeez.
Gosh darn perverts.
MERRY HALLOWEENMAS! Eat lots of candy! Watch scary movies! Participate in an active social life! (I wonder what that’s like). Dance! Drink! Cry alone in the bathroom with the water running so nobody can hear your sobs! (That’s a normal activity right?). Have fun and all that jazz. I will not be tumblring on Sunday because I will be doing push ups the entire day and only taking a break to watch the Walking Dead. Then Monday is Halloween and I’ll be taking the little brother trick-or-treating, then watching scary movies, then watching Disney movies to wash the scary out of my brain so I don’t have nightmares. Some times that works, and some times it backfires and I’ll dream I’m being stalked by a zombie Scar. If you don’t know that’s the evil uncle from Lion King, why do you not know that? Wtf? I don’t know how I feel about people who have never seen the Lion King following me. What are you some kinda Al Qaeda or something?
I’m glad you brought up Al Qaeda because I’ve been meaning to talk at length about the war or terror, civil liberties, extremism, and the global atmosphere in general. Let me start in the late 1700’s after the onset of the French Revolution and work my way up from there. See the thing everybody needs to understand is that… oh jeez… I’m doing one of my never ending rambly things aren’t I? Ay yi yi, I’m sorry folks. I gotta learn how to just stay on point and wrap things up concisely. I don’t know what my problem is. I guess it stems from when my father… NO! STOP! I NEED TO STOP THIS! THIS ENTRY NEEDS TO END!
WHILE YOU STILL CAN!
JUST CLICK THE HEART THINGY AND SCROLL TO THE NEXT POST!
You always get these evil villains who want to fulfill the prophecy. Hey, evil guy, I know what the prophecy says… but what do YOU want? What makes YOU happy, evil guy? Besides killing people, of course. When you’re not busy being evil and you’re just chilling in your lair or wherever it is that you live, and all your henchmen are fast asleep, how do you pass the time? What brings you joy? What do you think about when you’re not thinking about dastardly schemes? There’s gotta be more to you than just fulfilling the prophecy. Maybe you’re really into fashion, judging by your elaborate costume. Go into fashion! If that’s what you want to do.
And here’s the thing about prophecies evil guy… who cares about em! What’s so good about a prophecy? Just because some other dude a long time ago said something is going to happen, you have to be bound by it? That’s crazy! Who goes around making prophecies!? That prophecy maker was probably batshit insane, you don’t have to listen to them. Make your OWN prophecy. Yeah, prophecize your own future! Prophecize that you’re one of the world’s most renowned fashion designers. You could totally make that happen! You’re so eccentric you’d fit right in that world, they’d eat you up dude!
Let me tell you something about yourself evil guy, despite being all evil… you got a lot going for you. You’ve got amazing drive, you set goals and work towards them unwaveringly, that is great dude, I can’t say the same for myself honestly. I set a goal, then I’m like “Yeah I’ll do it later, right now I’m going to download and catch up on Archer and Sons of Anarchy.” and after I finish doing that instead of getting to work on my goal I remember I have to catch up on Dexter too. So, I’m just saying, it’s really impressive that you’re so dedicated to this prophecy thing, shows real dedication. You’ve also clearly got great leadership skills. You organize and motivate a legion of other evil dudes to do your bidding, that’s exceptional. I’m telling you right now, I would NOT be able to convince even one dude to go do my bidding. I’ve tried, they’re like “Fuck you, do it yourself.” See, you have a skill, few people have it.
What I’m trying to say is, forget this whole prophecy business and put these skills to good use doing something you love that’s not also evil. You could go far in life. Live in a nice house, have FRIENDS, not just underlings but true friends who actually care about you. You might meet a nice lady (or man, I don’t know what you’re into). I’m telling you man, if you stay on the course you’re on… you’re going to get decapitated by a magical sword, or turned to dust, or thrown in a volcano… or something, it does not end well for dudes like you. There’s no future in trying to fulfill evil prophecies, trust me.
Just something to think about. I hope I made a difference, evil guy… that I made up in my mind.
What is wrong with me? Is this how schizophrenia begins?
For Halloween I take my little brother (who is 7 going on 8) trick-or-treating, then we watch Halloween movies until he falls asleep. Then I have a horror movie marathon (sometimes alone, sometimes with friends or family). I watch all kinds of stuff, from obscure cheesy old b-movies, to the classics, to current stuff.
If you have non-obvious recommendations I’m open to them. Ya know, old, obscure, indie, foreign, etc. Don’t bother if you’re just going to say Friday the 13th or Night of the Living Dead or anything like that, that everybody knows and has seen.
you can dance if you want to....you can leave your friends behind. you have any musical guilty pleasures?
I never feel guilty about pleasure, except after I masterrrrruhnevermindthat…
Er, anyway, hmmm, I think everything I listen to, but a few things a lot of people might disagree with…
Linkin Park. I don’t own any of their albums or anything, and I know they’re considered kinda lame amongst my peers, but those are kinda fucking catchy to me. If I hear that “In the End” song I will not be able to get it out of my head.
I really like theme songs, Full House, Duck Tales, Chip N’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Sesame Street, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Mr Rogers, Pokemon, so many others, I will put these on my ipod and listen to them without irony because I just love them as songs.
U Can’t Touch This by MC Hammer. I loved it when I was a kid and I still love it now.
I also love this song, it cracks me up every time, definitely not something you want to sing to yourself in public or anything though.
My dream job is probably… someone gives me a couple million dollars and complete freedom to make one of my dream projects, however I want to make it, with no interference. This would be either be an animated show or film.
Which would you find more challenging? Giving a full body massage to someone who was morbidly obese or someone who was morbidly hairy?
"Morbidly hairy" that made me giggle. This guy is so goddam hairy it’s KILLING HIM!!! That’s a LOT of hair!
I don’t know how effective of a massage I could give to a morbidly obese person. Too much fat between my fingers and their muscles, right? So I guess I’d massage the hairy guy, it would be unpleasant, but hey that’s what soap, water, and antibacterial gel were made for. Might as well give him some pleasure before he dies of excessive hair.
I had been talking to this Korean girl for weeks. Just innocent flirtation. She wasn’t exactly my type, kind of boring to be honest, but she flirted with me… and I liked that about her, I think flirting with me is a good quality to have in a girl, one of the top things I look for. Anyway, I told her one day I was eating Shin Ramyun spicy noodle soup. She informed me that it was very very bad for me because it contained a lot of MSG, she added that it was as bad as eating McDonald’s.
One day you wake up, and you look at your life, and you ask yourself “How did I get here?” It seems like you barely recognize your life anymore, everything’s so different. Too different. You realize this isn’t your room, or your house, then you see a newspaper has the date March 1st, 1929, and you realize that’s somehow you’ve been transported back in time. Whoa… what the fuck?
That Avengers trailer made my eyeballs fill with tears. I’m not saying that in a hyperbolic sense, I literally got misty eyed watching it. It was super weird, because it wasn’t even the first time I watched it. I watched it over and over yesterday, nerding out like the nerdiest nerd to ever nerd, and getting goosebumps every single time. Then this morning I put it on my ipod so I could watch it more while I ran my morning errands. I started watching it while I was on the bus, and after already watching it like a handful of times, I just felt something and suddenly the tear ducts were open, and I was kind confused by my own emotions, like “Whoat, what? Am I about to cry right now? Did I yawn without noticing it? What is happening?” I did not understand at all why I was suddenly having this reaction. I wiped the tears and you know… manned up and stuff, because there were other people around and I don’t know if you know this but if you’re a man and you cry in public it’s completely legal for people to stone you to death, you can look that up in the book of laws.
But the reason I got emotional for a moment, was not because the trailer looked so fucking badass, well maybe that’s some of why, but it also triggered memories of me being a much smaller nerd back in the day dreaming of an Avengers movie. A lot of people call themselves a nerd/geek nowadays, and I’m not one of those pretentious nerds that has a problem with that, things change, terms evolve, and I’m glad “nerd” or “geek” is something people can say with pride and is pretty mainstream. It’s definitely better than it being purely derogatory like it was when I was growing up, and very closely associated with being an outcast. I have vivid memories of being picked on and ostracized for being a “nerd”. There were a lot of recesses where I sat alone reading comics. I was always a huge Marvel comics fan, and I remember being a kid writing down all the names of any actor and actress I could think of in one column (which took a while with there being no internet to rely on), then writing down the names of Marvel heroes in one column, and then drawing lines to who I thought could play what character. There weren’t even really any Marvel movies back then, so I just had to imagine them all in my head.
So for a moment I guess I was just overcome with “Wow, this thing I obsessed over as a kid is happening now that I’m a man and it looks fucking GLORIOUS!” and it’s so cool that superheroes aren’t my private little thing anymore, this is a highly anticipated movie not just for people who deem themselves nerds but for everyone who likes cool movies. It’s so cool to see the whole world sharing my excitement. It’s hard to not feel a sense of pride and ownership.
I feel so lame that I actually got teary eyed about it, I’m the least cool person on the face of the earth. Whatever though, I can’t wait to see this movie. Even if it doesn’t live up to the hype, just the fact that it exists and all those characters are going to be up on the screen together makes it automatically awesome to me.
Something for Intro to Illustration. We had to choose two stories from the New York Times and do some editorial work on it. However, for editorial pieces, I don’t think mine were very effective. Regardless, I had fun.

I don’t usually reblog on this blog, but I’ll make an exception to highlight a talented artist not getting enough attention.
Something a little different this time, instead of posting about a recording artist like usual, I thought I’d post one of mixes from 8tracks. I like making mixes with weird nerdy indulgent themes, this one revolves around Dragonball Z, which I loved growing up, and still do. This is the most popular of my mixes on there, which I found surprising.
Obviously I could never know if Goku would like these songs, him being a fictional character and all, but I think 80’s rock songs about fighting for what you believe in, being optimistic, never giving up, and general being determined…ness, really ring true for Goku, who pretty much lives all these songs. I feel like he’d get a kick out of them, and perhaps listen while he trains in increased gravity. Eight tracks including music by Joe Esposito, Paul Stanley, Survivor and others.
Hope you enjoyed today’s daily music post, if not that’s okay, perhaps you’ll dig the next.
Instant turn-off #5,612: A girl who doesn’t enjoy Michael Jackson’s music at all.
Thriller? Beat it? Billie motherfucking Jean? None of that is doing anything for you? At all? Nothing? Ah… I see what this is. Nice try. You thought you were just going to come to this planet, masquerade as a female human being, and mate with unsuspecting males to produce offspring that can eliminate us? Is that it? Thought you were just going to copulate with me and transform into a weird Giger-esque alien creature after you’d received my seed, and puncture my skull with your tongue? Guess what, I’ve seen the movie Species and I’m onto you. Should’ve done your research and found out that normal people from the planet earth who have souls think the music of Michael Jackson is undeniably… undeniable. CAN’T BE DENIED! Don’t deny it.
I’m sorry, but if you can’t get into one of the greatest recording artists of all time then you just can’t be the The Lady In My Life.
