Me? Oh I've been about. Doing this and that. Writing sporadically. Getting me arse back in school and the like. I'm tryin' to be a learned man ya know?! Gettin' my letters and my figures I will! Make something honest of meself.
I've not seen ya around as much mate but I reckon we'll be changing that. You''ll be gettin' tired o' me mug soon enough I bet. It's for the best though. We got a wee bit of catchin' up ta do.
Am I the bad brother? I daresay I might be.
In the last two days, I've been compared to the Clone. Comparison is the thief of joy or in this case, the thief of ignorance. The first time was over a friend's house. See I just got this tattoo ( and don't you ask for a picture Journ it's not healed yet ) and my friend asks if the Clone went with me to get it.
I snort like a horse. That shoulda been my first clue. My instant and honest reaction to the question. Typically, I screen my emotions with people. I can be out right bored and smile in your face. I couldn't then. The idea that the Clone would be in the vicinity of a tattoo parlor is laughable. Remember? The joyless salaryman? Think of me asking him. I can imagine him looking over his glasses, his face drained of every emotion accept disapproval, not uttering a word in an impossible before returning to his newspaper.
His wife goes on to echo my sentiment. They're completely different. She says. Like night and day. Then he goes, Like yin and yang. And I'm just sitting like, When the fuck did all this happen? Where was I? Am I the Night or the Day? Seriously, I was kinda fucked up there for a second. I mean, I know we're different but are we that different? It was something I would've like to chew on that for awhile Journ but I went to McDonald's in my store.
The girl that's getting my iced coffee, because sorry iced coffee is totally fantasticons, asks me about the Clone. We go through the usual are you twins ( No ), who's older ( Me ) but then before we get to the you two look just alike part, I get, You two are totally different. And again, I'm kinda assed out here Journ because I want to know but part of me doesn't give a fuck.
And let's clarify Journ because I don't mean that I literally don't give a fuck because it's obvious that I do. This niggles me. I know why. It's because I'm being observed and I don't like not knowing who's doing it. It's not like I'm out and about enough for people to really see me so I can only gather that this is from the perspective of work associates and those closest to me. That's precisely why I can't care. If you start giving a shit about what people think Journ, you're going down a slippery slope. The honest truth is people are going to judge no matter what you do. You are never going to be good enough for somebody. That's just the way it is. People think that it's there right not to approve of you and that's complete bullshit.
I'm a pothead atheist that aspires to make comics, anime, and hentai. That's right. Motherfuckin' hentai. Why? Because it's great. Is that something you can judge me for Journ? Sure. Go ahead. But what does that say about you? Are you in any position to pass judgment on someone? Is all of your shit together? Are you on the fuckin' path to Easy Street? Is your game 98% complete? No?
Then fuck you. I'm gonna keep doing me because that's actually working.
And now for some anime because let's face it, I'm more of anime addict than a pot addict any day.
I honestly didn't expect to Rage of Bahamut: Genesis to be that good but it is. A decent story and some great characters. It's ongoing. Find it on Hulu.
See this image? Half of them are dead. Akame Ga Kill is just like that Journ. Characters die or otherwise get fucked up in terrible and inhumane ways. First episode, I swear to Math, fucked up bro....But Seryu needed to die you hear me? Needed to. That's later on though before she does a lot of terrible stuff in the name of justice. The fight scenes are a little DBZ at times but they die and there are no Dragon Balls.
That's Sword Art Online II ....I honestly don't need to say anymore.
Uh Captain, we're on Season 2 of Log Horizon. Shiroe is still the Man. Uh...Akatsuki is still kawaii. And, uh, the story is still great. Keepin' her steady.
Lord Marksman and Vanadis is a good anime. It reminds me a great deal of Record of Lodoss Wor in the fact that there is magic ( Ellenora the Vanadis in question wields wind through her sword ) but it doesn't take away from actual warfare. There are columns of knights to set up still. War machines that are used. Positions that have to be taken for clear advantages. The Marksman Tigre doesn't meet Ellenora outside a tavern like in an RPG. He meets her on the battlefield on the opposing side. It's gets more complicated from there if you can believe it. The light novels they say, reveal more about the intricacies of the plot that the anime glosses over. Even so, there's enough of it in there to overlook the harem Tigre obviously is going to get.
Terror in Resonance is a tragedy and by the time you realize why and how, it will seem all the more fleeting.
This is Tokyo Ghoul. If you've not seen it, I'm a little ashamed of you. It's so good, you're going to want to read the manga because he only gets psycho at the very end. I mean full on loses his shit. Lovecraft lovers will be in heaven or hell if that's what you prefer...
