Does anyone know anything about monitors? I'm getting tired of my tiny low-res laptop screen and thinking of buying one. What should I be looking for?
was Preacher vol. 2 supposed to make my skin crawl this much
i think talking to my grandmother is going to be difficult for a while
Glenn, you ever got my message?
So yeah, I've been very worried over Venezuela's current state. Our infrastructure, economy and productive sector are in shambles, our currency has just been severely devaluated and some reforms are expected, and so far the acting (and soon to be actual) president has only shown that he'll keep applying the same practices of band-aid intervention and scapegoating when things get really bad which is what got us here in the first place, and that he's a goddamned bouffon of memetic proportions (I'd elaborate, but frankly, it's embarassing). Besides that, nobody really knows what he'll do once he's settled in power (he's never governed anything, has only been a suck up and is now laying being a Chávez clone) and nobody likes him anyways, he's only a candidate because Chávez declared him his successor. The government has been going all out using all its advantages to get him to win by as high a margin as possible (it's a given that he'll win) so they can keep that keep that image for longer...
Fuck Chávez and fuck chavism. Leftists, you're hard to like.
@Lai: Yes I did. Just haven't had the time to listen to them yet.
Fuck you, Rathalos.
I got you, but still.
lol wrong thread
I really need to buckle down and write more. I want to write something that can talk me off my current path in life. Something that will give me a break. Some people focus on school, and getting their major and being responsible. Others focus on their creative passions, regardless of lucrativity.
I'm doing neither, and it makes me feel like a loser.
Transferring files to my new computer. Taking a while.
I know the feeling. I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels.

He's now exclusively pumping out individual callout vids. What a wonderful world it is.
Also, heard this gem: do you like Star Trek? Coz I'd give you a 7 out of 9.
You know, apparently somebody did research, and it turned out that an Apple fan's brain reacts to an iPod in the same way as that a religious man's to a symbol of his faith.
You mean people associate brands they're fans of with the same positive mental associations as icons of religions they believe?
I'd expect that to be also true of fandoms.
I don't know about fandoms, but the article I've read says nothing of that sort happens around Cola, or anything. Just Apple. Which I guess puts hipsters in even worse light.
So long as it's a hipster lighting, I don't think they'd mind.
But if it's one of them dirty mainstream lights.
I made a Twitter account.
I've fallen so low.
I made one too, but only to follow people
So, for my final drawing project, we can do whatever. I decided to do something based on nightmares, memories, and monsters. I chose four monsters:
Slenderman (A modern monster)
The Yellow Man (A monster from my nightmares)
Werewolves (A classic monster)
Stalkers (A real monster)
All four also have to do with a loss of control:
-Slendy affects his victim's memories and slowly drives them to madness
-The Yellow Man, in my nightmare, stalked people, taking them if they were along, causing the conditions required to be considered alone to be more and more restrictive until somebody needs to be looking at you at all times, else you vanish forever
-Werewolves are a loss of self control, not knowing what you're going to be doing
-Stalkers slowly take control from you, filling your life with fear of this obsessive person
One of the pieces to do with Slendy is a journal detailing the guy's descent into madness. Any suggestions?
It's a 160 sheet notebook I'm using. Only one side of each sheet will be used until he really descends. So far the plan is that the first 20 are normal, him talking about this man in the suit that haunted his dreams once as a kid, but mostly day to day stuff. Then it gets a bit more obsessive with the man around pages 15 to 35. Then he starts getting paranoid, slowly devolving into madness for another 20 to 40 pages until he just flat out goes all "operator" and fills it with increasingly bizarre pictures, with the pages starting to get burned, torn, wet, muddy, etc.
I got a Twitter account a while back to follow developments in the Wisconsin, Tunisian, Egyptian, Syrian, etc. protests.
Attendance of World Pillow Fight Day: 150 people
Attendance of a demonstration for an independent East-Turkmenistan: 25 people
This says something about the current state of society.
And apparently bringing a helmet to a pillow fight is considered cheating.
To be honest, it's pretty hip obscure if I don't remember ever having heard of it.
Xinjiang, a.k.a. East Turkestan, is a semi-autonomous region filling out the northwest corner of mainland China where it meets the borders with Mongolia, Russia and Kazakhstan. The region is the main hub of Islamic society within China and it's had a secessionist movement for as long as I can remember, although obviously it doesn't get nearly as much international support as the whole Free Tibet thing...
Let's not make a religious issue out of this. It's a national issue: The majority population of Sinkiang is Uyghur, a Turkestanic people related to the Uzbeks. Hence also Uyghuristan or Sinkiang Uighur as names for the region. While, yes, they're Muslims, it's an ethnic, not a religious conflict. And, just as in Tibet, the PRC has (successfully) tried to make them a minority in their own region by mass settling Han Chinese there.
