My Theme Song

Anyone ever heard the song "Voices Off Camera" by Rise Against? It's stuck in my head. I'll post a vid with the song when I get out of school. I generally consider it to be my theme song. Here's the lyrics in the meantime:

Can you hear the desperate cries
That are calling out your name?
Twisting your arms, holding out their hands
And tugging at your sleeve
Do you feel, this underlying sense of urgency
Or are you as blind as me?

I hit the ground and I'm still running
But I need a place to stay tonight,
I swear I'll be gone in the morning
I just need somewhere now

I can't bear the thought of losing,
I dread the attention winning brings
But ever since the day I came here
I can stand without your strings
I'm so sick of all these people
But I'm scared to be alone
And if this life has taught me anything
I forgot it long ago

And so I
Hit the ground and I'm still running
But I need a place to stay tonight,
I swear I'll be gone in the morning
I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes
Hit the ground and I'm still running
But I need a place to stay tonight,
I swear I'll be gone in the morning
I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes

The heart is something, you can't control
We either choose to follow, or be left on our own
So we're leaving here on, a less-travelled road
As desperate cries grow louder, I know we're getting close, getting close

. . .

And so I hit the ground and I'm still running
But I need a place to stay tonight,
I swear I'll be gone in the morning
I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes
Hit the ground and I'm still running
But I need a place to stay tonight,
I swear I'll be gone in the morning
I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes…

Komikku

We all know that originally English-language comics made by non-Japanese people who are drawing in anime style and calling their works "manga" irritate the fuck out of me right? And we all know how much "real (American) comic book" fans hate being associated with anime/manga styles, right? Well, I just thought of a word we could use for those English-language "manga" (*gag*) comics.
"Komikku"
It's "comic" or "comic book" transliterated into Japanese. Fitting enough, eh? Either way, it's the word I'm using to refer to my work from now on.

1:56 AM on a Saturday Night

I just spent the last hour thinking up - in detail - the history of a whole imaginary country and placing the three stages of it's development of a map of Europe, all to make my story more interesting and most likely spark a spin-off.
...
Fuck yeah.

:D


Over the last several months, I’ve had many people call my style “mediocre”, “cliché”, and “amateur”, just to name a few – and frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.[1] I’ve wanted to draw anime since before everyone started having a bloody turd about it, and that’s what I’m doing. My style for drawing people is influenced by Lynn Okamoto (Elfen Lied and Nononono), backgrounds are influenced by Jhonen Vasquez (Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, Squee, I Feel Sick, and Invader Zim), and my shading is influenced by Hidekazu Himura (Hetalia). If that’s cliché, then the word has no meaning. Actually, the word cliché is cliché because the dictionary definition of “cliché” is “a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but wiser, or strong as an ox.[2] And yes, I know anime is “generic beauty”, but I don’t really care. I’ll draw what I want. Also, I do not trace. Now stop being douchebags and grow a vagina,[3] you idiots. Thanks~ <3.
