I think I dropped like a grand on a 360 + monitor + games + hotel fees in July.

Yesssssir mesh I hear ya. 4 figures goes way faster then ya think it would. Sort of why I'm telling on myself here.

I think I'm gonna live off fried seaweed and coffee creamer for awhile to balance my holiday spending. LoL

Wanna know the worst part? I still feel compelled to go out tomorrow night and buy an extra dualshock 4 since their on sale. I'm an idiot. A guilty idiot. A guilty idiot with toys.

I blame it on Link.


Tattooing this ^^^ next week by the way. I made the tunic too bright and need to readjust that a bit. LoL

You and I HAVE to collaborate one day.
Maybe next game that completely hooks you I'll doodle something for ya. ;P

It seems some PSP RPGs have been sapping away my anime/manga time. From ongoings I'm mostly keeping up with Mushishi and the new gundam shows. Mushishi has been a long time favorite of mine, but I've already read the manga ages ago so I'm not exactly feeling like I'm dying waiting for new eps. For Gundam, I'm not the biggest fan of the "whatever" approach of BF series. Seems I'm more in the G-reco appreciating minority. I kind of get this feeling that it's actually trying to tell a story as an anime show, meaning I don't immediately recognize it to be some vn, ln, manga ad based stuff. Not to say that's necessarily a good thing, but I find it fresh despite being actually ancient. Other than that, I'm mostly watching some kid shows. Catching up with Aikatsu, some Shugo Chara and also Digimon and Pretty Rhythm a while back. Occasionally there are some rather solid seasons that I find just as good, if not better, than the nerd stuff.

For manga, I'm mostly into Toriko right now. It's like One Piece, except with more muscle and food. I always liked my battle stuff to have some beef in it.

I actually understand what you mean. I'm more likely to get worked up and/or misty-eyed over powerful "happy" moments rather than your typical sad stuff. Give me something heroic and amazing and I'm mush. Kill off a character or two, and I hardly bat an eye.
That;s why "You bow to no one" gets me so much.
Heck, think back to the original Transformers movie. I didn't really cry at Optimus death(I came close, though), but what really worked me up was when he showed and just started kicking ass all over the place. That scene, and the accompanying music, inspire me to this day. Heroism. Maybe I secretly wish to be a hero? Or to do heroic things? Don't we all, in a way?

Real movies for some reason don't get me emotional. Only games, anime/manga stuff and music do. Maybe the most I felt was with the original Star Wars trilogy. Not because I felt sad or anything. It was a combination of other things from the sense of adventure to lovable characters to the iconic moments. Tragedies are ok, but for me getting emotional is more about other things that are somewhat hard to describe. If I'd have to say I appreciate things that make me feel full more than things that make me feel empty, though that is a somewhat rare occurrence.

I fired up the ol' SNES and played some Chrono Trigger.  Still a killer classic.  Bringing Crono's friends home to meet his mom never gets old, especially Frog and Ayla.  Also occasionally playing some Chrono Cross- I'm at Fort Dragonia.  And trying to earn some achievements in School Idol Festival. 

But the game I'm most thinking about is the new round robin on this forum.  It ain't quite the " Taressa" one, but it's still loads of fun.

@Dice: There's no "deeper meaning" intended in ME!ME!ME! when everything is presented clearly with the audiovisual storytelling they went with.

Some people not wanting to give the short credit, I take it, is not to fall in the category of being a weirdo.

A past me would agree back when I didn't have the capacity to read between the lines, nor did the past me understand that it's more important what meaning I find in art rather than what the artist may have intended. After all, even the artists themselves may not see or understand all of the themes they themselves are using.

I always wonder this.  Especially when it comes to book analysis, film analysis, game analysis, or even art.
Every so often someone on Deviant Art will say something more profound than I ever could about my own art.  And certainly different art works will have different meaning to some people.  In your case seeing something akin to what the fella in ME!ME!ME! did to someone who hasn't had any such history.  Another fun example is China's somewhat peculiar fascination with the film 'Titanic' that was hard for the creator's to immediately explain.

...but I cannot focus on artwork to save my life if I don't play games. This is an alarming reality given the fact that my career/livelihood is entirely based on my capability as an artist but I've been this way for years.


I'm sort of the same.  I'm somewhat useless in the daytime and I use that to play games or do errands.  I love seeing what else is out there too, I think games, film, media, nature, etc. are one of the things I need to constantly expose myself to in order to keep my 'on the ball' and cognitive enough for art.
