#1: Currently playing multitude of games - most prominantly from a multiplayer perspective are Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition and SWTOR. Obviously, for SWTOR I'm on the European servers - hit up Dukos if you're on English PvE Europe Empire. Steam username is Valokiloren - send me a message telling me who you are and how I know you if you want to be steam friends.

#2: Have pretty much stopped art production of all sorts for now. Haven't done any sprite work in a long time, nor do I plan to pick it up again; poetry is always hit/ miss and a lot of my... better(?) works are more short stories with odd punctuation choices; actual drawn artwork, ignoring the fact that I don't have a drawing pad nor a scanner, is something I haven't touched for about five or six years.

#3: Still at work; have now been employed for one year at the same job and my position is secure. Company likes me; my colleagues like me; customers like me. Going well there.

#4: Am inactive for purposes of online forums etc. - mainly due to fact that bar a couple of people my friendships with a lot of people often feel somewhat forced by myself in an attempt to go back to the "good old days" some eight years ago (or possibly sooner), of course forgetting that I don't actually NEED to be acting like an retarded immature little hanger-on anymore since I'm now 22 (nearly 23) and certainly not the scrub teenager angsty at the world yet unwilling to fight for himself. Regardless, if you want to chat, message me here - we'll talk for as long as we can hold a conversation together.

#5: If I sound at all like an asshole to you, fair enough. Just leave it be though, don't lecture me about it. Just so we're all aware - my journal is pretty much a venting area for me to blow off steam or pitch ideas. I don't particularly wish to get into arguments about whether or not "The White Man" is to blame for person X's treatment by society, and whether or not I actually benefit from being a white male, for example. So again, leave it be.

Turns out that I've lost my bank card. This wouldn't be too bad if I actually knew my account detail's or had some bank statements at hand. As it is, I don't beyond a vague idea have any idea, so that's annoying. Just got off the phone to the bank; they successfully blocked it and hopefully come the morning I can be somewhat less annoyed and be able to actually request a new card without biting someone's head off beforehand.

Impotent rage at its finest.

Not sure if many people regularly get an "Icarus feeling", as it were, but I constantly flit between feeling down and feeling like that.

For anyone not 100% sure what I mean: I use the term Icarus feeling to describe that sensation or feeling that things are going too well and soon your wings will burn up and then you'll crash and burn, bringing things to a far worse place than you started out at.

I just feel that the way things are going, as far as work is concerned right now, is a high point which is dangerously close to being too good that the negatives are going to be too monumental for me to properly deal with.

That's all I wanted to say, see y'all later~

So, I'm sitting down just wanting to watch some bullshit Youtube video by these "internet comedy dicks and their sexy friend" as they have once described themselves, and I get a pop-up for the new trailer for The Maze Runner. I then check my subscription box and watch the How It Should Have Ended (HISHE) Maze Runner video.

Honestly? It looks just like fucking The Hunger Games to me.

Dystopian future for children: check
Forced into stupid competition for survival: check
Main character will no doubt be driving force to break system: check
Stupidly pointless love problems: check
Have to achieve inane and arbitrary condition to escape: check

For fuck's sake - dystopian futures are the new in-thing, apparently. And I'm definitely feeling my age as I just don't see the appeal whatsoever for either of these franchises. I mean... fuck, ignoring the stupidity of every character in these things, just from observations from one trailer, one HISHE video and watching the two Hunger Games movies, they literally have bad guys with no motive to do these things.

Why the fuck is Evil Adult #1 even doing this simulatory bullshit in the first place? I mean, take Hunger Games. Instead of some sort of idiotic death simulator made for the amusement of "The Capital" and nothing more, why not make it the same goddamn death simulator but for, you know, something which makes sense? Like, a battleground for survival for failing members in your obligatory "Evil Army Training School for Kids"?

I mean, this is ignoring Katniss' literal awfulness as a character. She's not suited for that universe whatsoever - in a world where hunting for your own food is illegal and punishable by death or whatever, a trusting naive girl who isn't ridiculously selfish should get eaten alive, not be the central figure, even if its just as a figurehead, of a rebellion. That's stupid. And I've read the synopsis of the series, so knowing that her love interest (Peter?) is actually even MORE!?! selfless is not an argument to justify her.

Plus, both situations are literally retarded. This is, from what I have gathered, set After the End/ Apocalypse, right? These bad guys want to continue humanity as a species in some form... right? So why oh why do you use children for sport as opposed to adults? Is it the fact that kids aren't as likely to be able to keep their heads in difficult and rushed situations or something? Or is child violence somehow more desensitizing in these futures that its more tolerable than the adult versions of these things? I mean, children have more life to live or whatever, and they can be taught to survive this new world just as easily as adults.

Ugh. Just... just don't bloody tell me that my personal favourite thing, dystopian future, is the prime thing at the box office at the moment. Because that stuff? That stuff is absolute garbage.

Advance Wars New Fighter by e-herowindmaster
Advance Wars New Fighter
So, inspired by some other work on the interwebs, I set about designing my own version of the Fighter unit in Advance Wars. It's made up of Blue Moon, Orange Star and Green Earth parts,so it's hardly a "by scratch" model, but I feel it looks nice and worth a posting. It's been a WIP for about three weeks now - mainly because I wasn't 100% happy with everything. Today, I made (read: worked out) the latter sprite - which is after it's taken a shot since it's down a missile.

I posted it in Blue Moon colours because I felt that, of the five official faction colours, the Blue Moon colouration looked best.

Hey man, my initial username change warranted my own ridiculous nickname which stuck for an age and then some. Only because people forgot/ I changed username did it die out. You though... you kept your username constant, so I always recall the nickname 'cause o' that.
