Oh the neverending cycle of laundry and having to clean out your orafices... can't i just come with a self-cleaning device? The various possible gods couldn't figure that one out? We just HAD to have tiny organisms crawling on us ALL the time? Not that i'm one of those kindsa OCD, since i realize we are entirely composed of tiny organisms, but they die, collect, rot, and thus smell. And having a bad smell is pretty much worse than thinking you don't look good. Not that some people can control that either, but some can.
The kitty loves being outside. Since we let her out a little, the back of this "new" place me and Jen are at (we moved in together around october? did i mention that here?), she meows every morning when we wake up to let her out. We keep the doors wedged open enough for her to fit, and she socializes with (growls, yowls and hisses at) the local kitties that come by, because she's never really interacted with other cats before. Just one annoying little dog who left with the trainwreck that owned it. And the neighbor's cat who i swear must be related to Skittles who isn't afraid of her. Skittles runs away, and this thing is a scrawny "pre-teen" kitty who has very little muscle strength yet, and soft claws compared to Skittles' adamantium blades (my hands, OH! my hands...), but Skittles'll yowl and start quick paw-ing the air at Callie, then run away. The little kitty just follows her, "Where ya goin, now?" Skittles will often now check the house for other cats, paranoid. Oh well. Callie doesn't hurt anything, and she's a sweetie.
I don't have a subscription anymore, but i don't notice, thanks to handy dandy adblock plus! Haha! You guys get it, then you won't have to wait for dumb commercials on videos either! No, i'm not being paid to say that. It's a free download, and doesn't slow down your browser at all.
I really like the new KMFDM album, Kunst, although the cover and the song named after the cover are a bit embarrassing, hehe. I mean, you'd think i'd be all over the imagery of a topless girl chainsawing down a cross, but even i know that's not for the cover of KMFDM, they had a little more class than that. I mean, yes there was side-nip on the Naive covers (it had 2 versions)
Still probably won't stop me from wanting to make a BBW version...
But the album is nice and trippy, and fun and heavy and just pleasant for my brain to consume. Every KMFDM album has a few songs i find unlistenable, this album is not excluded: "Pussy Riot" makes me cringe ("An army of tits" - just awkward), and I Heart You - i'm just not a fan of listening to a woman crying. I mean, if it was real, i'd use that feeling to try and help her so she doesn't feel sad, so that i don't feel sad, but to just listen to it on a recording every time before a song, it's just uncomfortable. There's a retro mix of the song that's WAY better, i found on a KMFDM download pack.
"Albuquerque" by Weird Al always gets me to laugh. It's just a really long nonsensical story set to music, and he just hits the right degree of exaggeration to just get me to giggle in spite of myself when i'm paying attention, hehe. "So why don't you just cut my arms and legs off while you're at it!?!?! ....So i did."
I'm reading a Star Trek Voyager book. "The Eternal tide" by Kirsten Beyer.
I just saw it in the store (Coles) and thought, "I did enjoy that series and am attached to a few of those characters... i got some extra money, buying books anyway..." (also picked up Piers Anthony's "Knot Gneiss" and "Star Wars: The Rise of Darth Vader" by James Lucena, plus a couple sweet bookmarks: one of R2-D2's "face" and "chest" design- that one's in the Star Trek book, ku-huhuhu -and one of Batman)
It's kinda odd because there are quite a few things that have happened between the show and this book (other books, obviously). It exposits pretty well, but there are still some characters i am not yet attached to. Some Eden women, and a guy named Cambridge? And Janeway's dead. From another "scarier than the borg" species that took the Borg over and whatever happened in that story...
But there's talk in the Q continuum of bringing her back -one of the Q being the spawn of Janeway and the Q most of us know, an episode i vaguely remember- even though her death is one of those things that happens in every timeline conceivable by the Q, and the attempt to change that in the past has lead to major universal upheaval.
But at least i've met the Doctor, Kim, Paris, B'Elanna (who was always hotter than Seven), Neelix, Chakotay, and i even appreciated Seven's presence. She was a good character underneath all that "space-girl fetish fan-service" that completely misses most of the marks my brain would require to be as attracted as the average star trek fan.
Besides, Klingon women are where it's at. (well, maybe not for little me, i'd be broken in the first minute - give me a full-hair Dianna Troi, or a Jadsia Dax, even Kes - damn she was beautiful when she had longer hair...)
Anyhoo, i just don't know what to create anymore. I have drawing ideas, video ideas, i just don't have the unquenchable desire to draw like i used to. Maybe it is just the body strain of a more physical job, and the contentment of being with Jen.
I won't stop creating altogether, i don't think i could... well, i could... but i don't want to. Guess there comes a point when an artist feels the work is done. There's nothing i can really expand upon now, and there's nothing else i'm really good at that i enjoy to equal proportions in the same way. Other than video games and arguing against religion, haha. And cuddling and watching Roseanne and Buffy and Who's the Boss and Big Brother Canada (there are some to really root for, i am surprised it's just as good as the US one - i only watch survivor and big brother: the most basic of templates, and it's fun to root for the nerds), and Nostalgia Critic and Crew videos, and youtube videos... consume consume consume...
Gotta create, can't just consume...
