Okay. I did it. I got off my ass and did a drawing. Then, I spent my Sunday playing with it in Photoshop to add a little color. Now, these things usually fail miserably and serve only as a reminder to myself that I should never be at the computer when I don't have to be. This time isn't too different, but I'm just glad I finally did a little drawing and creative-type stuff, without waiting until I needed to make something for Meg as a present. The last couple years, those have been the only times I've even picked up a pencil.
I have to thank the fine group (so far) over at otaku*fu forums for helping to give me a kick in the ass by talking about all kinds of art-appreciation-type stuff.
11.22.04: the coolest girl in the worldpestilence
... Can be seen in this picture standing next to X-Play's Morgan Webb and Adam Sessler. Alas, poor Meg, my evil twin, took it upon herself to get a copy of their book signed for me when I couldn't attend the event last week in NYC. She braved throngs of dorks and fanboys for hours, just to come home to one. That, my friends, is why she is better than all of you.
Since I'm determined not to let this become a personal log for all things Morgan-related, I'm going to move on, now. Still, two updates in less than six months. I must be getting more efficient, or more bored.
Things have been updated to the right, and I've been spending a good deal of time hanging out at the newly launched otaku*fu forums and even more time playing Halo 2. Now, since I've instated a policy to leave the confines of my room-pod as infrequently as possible, I have these two activities allowing me to interact with people with whom I share common interests, and kill them. I'll let you figure out which is which. Either way, though, find me online where I don't have to smell you.
06.19.04: not so fastpestilence
I know what you're thinking. It's been over a year since the last time I posted anything, so who the hell do I think would still be reading this by now. Do I really believe that there are people there who will keep checking a site after a full year of inactivity? Not really. But something so cool happened the other day that I felt like I should tell the world about it, and I can't afford to hire a skywriter. Or a van with megaphones built into it. Or just a megaphone. Okay, that I can probably afford, but there's a thing about megaphones. They're kind of loud.
So there it is. More than a year after I sent it to her, Ms. Morgan is wearing one of my shirts. I don't know if the blue lace-up one that the viewers seem to enjoy so much was being cleaned, or the entire wardrobe area at TechTV was raided by surly interns once the G4 buyout happened, or if some crazed Morgan fan stole all her other clothes. Frankly, I don't care. I'm just glad I have proof that they got there (Morgan: You never write, you never call). And, I guess, also that for a few shining moments, at least, they're not being used to dust a monitor somewhere. Info is coming soon on how you too can own one of these lovely pieces of TV history. In the meantime, e-mail me if you're desperate, because who knows when I'll get off my ass again to update.
Don't get me started on how pissed off I am about the new G4techTV being dropped from my local cable line up, though. It's an unending bitchfest once I get going, and I'm trying not to think about it.
Just in case there is someone out there who still bothers to check for new content here, there are a few updated links over in the right column, since this update was less-than-entertaining to anyone who doesn't happen to be me. And while I have you here, let's talk about movies for a minute. The Dawn of the Dead remake and Kill Bill Vol. 2 were so impressive to me that even mighty Hellboy paled in comparison. I'm sure that when I see Big Red again on DVD, I'll be able to give him the love he deserves, though.
