yet another journal I haven't touched in over a dog's age

The customary bookmark bit of art.

In honor of the final episode of Futurama airing just 3 days ago.

How I will miss it... until it resurrects itself on a different network again... I hope.

Vampires may call Anita the executioner, but all creatures call you Death. You stopped hunting humans because they were "too easy". You have an apparent lack of morales, and might even be considered one of the monsters. You blend in perfectly with your surroundings, which makes you one scary sonofabitch.

Which Anita Blake Character Are You?

Jealousy and paranoia are a dangerous combo.
The only thing worse than being jealous that the girl you really care for has a new boyfriend is the feeling that she is saying and doing things, flaunting her new relationship to MAKE you jealous.
That leads one to do evil, desperate things.
and rest assured, I am an evil, desperate person.
Ow! My freakin' ears!!

I know not how everyone else feels about it, and I know some folks are probably gonna try and flame me and hurt my feelings for this, but oh boo-hoo, I'll get over it:

I am so VERY sick and tired of all these little cloned wannabe hybrid rock/rap groups!
From Limp Bizkit to Linkin Park to P.O.D. and everyone in between, please, for the love of Gods and Goddesses, JUST FUCKING STOP!!

Listening to the radio last night (for lack of anything else to keep my mind entertained during work), the DJ's had the obligatory call-in vote battle of the bands.
It was Linkin Park (who apparently have been the champions for nigh on 3 weeks now... YIKES!), vs. The Stereophonics.
And not only did 25 outta say, 27 callers vote for Linkin Park, but they felt the need to shout out how much The Stereophonics ( and is some cases "anybody who go up against m'boys, L. Park") sucked. Mind you, these were all bratty sounding suburban white teenagers with snotty attitudes trying to sound "street", but then, I find that that seems to be the fan base for such bands.

The rock/rap hybrid was just another good idea in music gone horribly, horribly awry.

I think that the best way to pull that off is when REAL ROCKERS collab with REAL RAPPERS to make a song or an album.
This all started way back in the day when Run-DMC and Aerosmith got together to remake "WAlk This Way".
The next big one I can remember is Public Enemy and Anthrax reworking "Bring Da Noize".
There was the entire Judgement Night Soundtrack.

Now, the R/R Hybrid is the flavor of the week for every little talentless wannabe newstyle punk and alternative band out to make a quick buck and "get [their] message out to da youth", or every washed up one-trick pony former rapper who wants to put his identity as an industry-wide laughingstock behind him and 'make a new start'. (Not saying any names.)

I say, if you can't do it right, don't do it at all.
If you can't blend two styles of music into something great (or at least GOOD, and with integrity), then don't even try.
You can fool the suburbanites who latch onto fads like a cartoon dog on a Scooby Snack, and yes, that'll make you a quick buck, but that's the problem with fads, even the most enduring ones will only last but so long. Then what?
Now, I won't even lie and say that I don't enjoy SOME of the songs by SOME of these bands...
I've been known to relax by the fire some evenings with a good book, a glass of Wild Vines Blackberry Merlot and the lilting strains of Limp Bizkit's Break Stuff gently wafting from the stereo...
but still, I know a fad and a blatant moneymaking fabrication when I hear one.

They're not rock, not rap, not punk, not gangsta, not 'alternative', not old school hip hop... what they are is an effront to all the previously mentioned forms of music. (Okay, maybe not to "Gangsta" or "Alternative", but so fuckin' what?)

This... cacophany is the red-headed stepchild of the musical world, and should be bitchslapped accordingly.

So, in the last week, I have seen 2 new movies, and will be on my way to see 2 more before the week is out,
I found a good sum of money on the street the other day, went to a friendly outing full of friendly people, got the drawing vibe again, and made a nice pic of a serpent. I think I may be ready to try my hand at a comic strip again. That, and the writer's block seems to be lifting a little. My friend offered me his old laptop, and if I can ever catch up with him, I shall accept.
all that, plus, the things that were bothering me seem to have faded into the background.

Now, if I could just find someone to love, and the ability to fall asleep before 5:20 a.m., I think I would be alright for the long run.
Whoop some Heinie!!

You are the Dragon. In medieval Europe, dragons were considered mostly evil and a generally bad omin. Christianity linked the dragon with Satan because of the dragon's snake-like apperance. However, to the Orient cultures the dragon was a symbol of widom and roalty. It was a benign animal and the fifth creature of the Chinese zodiac. It resided over the east and the sunsrise. It was also said to bring rain and the springtime. The dragon is interesting because it combines all four elements: air, earth, fire, and water. It could fly, had the horns of a ox, breathed fire, and resided over the moon.

What mythical beast best represents you?Take the quiz!

I am growing farther and farther apart from my roommates.
On Purpose.

They seem content to ignore me, so I figure that I'll make it easy for them. I won't be around much. When i am around, I won't talk to them unless it's necessary.
I have been doing everything I can to make their total disregard of me as smoothe as possible.
So, of COURSE, alluvasudden they wanna know what's "Wrong" with me.
Suddenly, I am the center of attention.
Screw 'em.
I've got my own life to deal with, I don't need their shit.
