Holy shit, everyone... I made it! I didn't die of dehydration, I didn't break anything, and I made it through the fire and flames of Missouri (AKA: The Armpit of America). I'm officially a combat Engineer in the U.S. army. Yay?

Overall I had a ton of fun, and I'm ready for the next adventure. Guess what that is? I'M BEING STATIONED IN GERMANY!!! So far, I've heard nothing but good things about being stationed in Bamburg- I hope it lives up to the reviews.

I don't know about much painting coming in in the near future, but you'll probably be seeing some photography once I get my new laptop up and running (I bought a Mac... YAY!). As of right now I'm enjoying (well, [i]enjoying[/i] may be a bit strong, I'm [i]dealing with[/i]) my leave and I'll be shipping off to Bamburg on the 26th of this month.

Wish me luck on my flight. :fingerscrossed:

I need to find a fresh pack of cigarettes...

Anyway, I've been going through a serious dry patch with my art since getting out of school, and since I've come back from Tucson, AZ I've been feeling a lot more inclined to draw and I'd like to start a painting again. Although, with me shipping off to basic training in less than a week I don't think I'll have the time, but I'm going to give it a shot.


This has nothing to do with the subject of this Journal, but I just want to say 'Violent Pornography' by System of a Down is one funny song. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard... (Mikey, if you can find a file of the song on the web, you and Tre have got to listen to it. I think you'll both get a kick out of it.)

I've been pretty busy lately. A while back, I went to a temp agency to see if they could help me get a job- before that, I'd been applying everywhere and no one would hire me. Finally I got a little fed up, and just said, "Fuck it."

Anyways, I went to the temp agency (called Career Concepts if anyone's curious), filled out the application, and ended up sitting in the waiting area for a very long five minutes. After that the, guy taking care of my paperwork came out (Mike was his name), and asked, "You want a job today?"

I was a little stunned. Eventually, though, I found my voice and said I'd do it. It wasn't what I'd hoped for, but they were paying me. I ended up working for a plastics company called accudyne (I think that's how you spell it). I worked there for six days before I got laid off. They gave me just long enough to get used to working second shift before they dumped me- and all the other temps working there- out on the streets. Apparently, the company was hemorrhaging money and had to cut employees.

Waking up to a phone call telling you you've been laid off is NOT a pleasant way to be greeted. In the end, though, everything worked out. Mike, after breaking the news to me with all the subtlety of a blunt axe, told me that he had another job for me if I wanted it. And that's where I'm at now. I've been working first shift (7:30am to 4:00pm, Mon. to Fri.) at Plastek for about a month now.

Overall, it hasn't been that bad. I'm in better shape than I've been in ages (carrying boxes for eight hours a day will do that to you), there's no more homework to worry about, and I still have the weekends off.  And this job is by mo means permanent. I'm just killing time until June. Then I'm shipping off to Basic Training.
Also, I have some cash saved up and I'm trying to see if I can fit in a college class or two before I ship out.

Unfortunately, the painting I was working on was a complete flop. It kept throwing a new problem at me every tinme I sat down to work on it. Finally, I just got disgusted and trashed it. I'd like to try something a little more bold and iconic, rather that one of my opinion pieces, but I don't know if I'm going to yet. We'll see what happens.


With all the extra time I've got, I've been able to do a lot more reading. And I've gotten into some great new books. Well, they might not be new to the market or anything, but they're new to me.

-On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King
*I've just started this one, and it's one of the coolest things I've ever read. I figured I'd put this one up here because some of my watchers are also damn good writers and I think they'd get a kick out of this book. It's not just them I'm suggesting it to. Whether you like to read and/or write, I would recommend this book. Because along with Mr. King's views on writing, the first half is an autobiographical account of his life. To save time, I'll put it simply: That dude's been through some rough shit. If you want to know more, borrow it from a library. Personally though, I suggest buying your own copy. That's what I did.

-Confessor by Terry Goodkind
*I finished this book just before starting 'On Writing'. It's the conclusion of Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. You'd have to read your way through the rest of the series to understand the whole thing, but even if you don't, it's still a damn good book. I liked the whole series, and I think I've said this before, but a few of my favorites from it were Wizard's First Rule, Temple of Winds, Faith of the Fallen, and this last one Confessor.

-The Transall Saga by Gary Paulsen
*If Gary Paulsen sounds like a familiar name to you, it should. He wrote the books Hatchet, Brian's return, Brian's winter, and Nightjohn. You may have had to read one of these in middle school. While I didn't particularly like any of those books, the Transall Saga is one of my favorites (that's why I've hung onto it for nearly a decade). And yes, it is written for younger kids, but it's still a good story. It's just be a quick read.

-Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
*I haven't read this book yet.  But I was wondering if anyone else has.
Hey guys, I don't know if you've seen it, but I (as well as 4,486 other deviants) would really appreciate it, if you's at least check it out.

Excerpt from the petition:

"Dear DeviantArt Administrators,

We, the DeviantArtsts would like you to:
1. Bring back to the old democratic and simple "number of favorites=amount of fame" system (at least for the browsing, as an option!).
2. Give users an option of a CHOICE between the new "FairExposure" and old " Popular". Perhaps make them as separate categories on the frontpage.
3. Update/fix the new "FairExposure" algorithm so that it addresses all the problems in the following list:

1. Promotion of obscure categories or miscategorization:
While this might be good and we can see things like poetry on the front page, this is also bad as it nominates art that shouldn't be on the front-page, such as poorly drawn art that only jumps there since its nominated by the "lottery"
Examples of this are:
Digital Art > Pixel Art > Text > Non-Isometric
This promotion goes so far that TWO artworks from the same category are now on the front page (example Photography > Still Life > Dolls and Figures)
Promotion of odd categories such as 'desktop screenshot'"

Please take a couple minutes and check it out (and hopefully sign it). I'd be cool to have the really good art from this site on the front page again.

Here's the… .

Okie dokie. It's been a while since I've produced anything art related, but I do have a few things in the works. One of the will definitely end up in my gallery within the next week or so. As for the rest, eh, they'll probably feed the fire. I haven't felt very driven lately, art wise, and that piece will probably be the last painting for a while. I'm just tying up lose ends. Getting all that school shit I was bitching about in my last journal (or the one before that, I can't really remember, and I'm not going to take the five seconds to check) has really taken its toll. But it's taken care of, and I'm finally finished with that hellish experience. I graduated Wednesday, January 16, 2008. Now, I'm just killing time until June when I will be shipping off to basic training. In one of my other journals, I said I was going into the Marines. That's not happening. At the last minute, I decided to compare my choices instead of going for the first thing that caught my eye, and the Army is giving me a better deal. I signed my contract a few days before I graduated. I'll be shipping off to basic training June 11. In the meantime, I'm getting a job working third shift at a local convenience store and I may get the chance to do a little demolition work gutting the McDonald's in the local mall. What I'd like to do is start a little informative writing- you know, journalism and stuff. Maybe even a few short stories. I've had a few ideas kicking around that I started fleshing out about mid '07, but due to an overwhelming workload, I didn't have the time or energy to complete them.

I think I've said this to one or two people but I think I'm going to just lay it all out there for everyone as long as I'm typing this journal up. Joining the military is a really unpopular decision with most of the people I know. And it's even more difficult doing it by myself. The hardest part was signing the form designating who gets my assets in the event that I'm gunned down/blown up/killed in any miscellaneous ways. I realize that I can't rely on others all the time, but considering this is such a big decision, I could use something a little more encouraging than things like, "What the hell do you want to do that for?!" and, "You know we're in the middle of a war right now, right?" So if anyone has something negative to say about the military or my decision- please, do me the courtesy of keeping it to yourself.

On a more positive note, I finally know where I'm headed in life and I feel really good about that. I'm set job wise for the next four years. And I'll hopefully get a chance to help people. Plus, it's a guaranteed paycheck and full medical. Once I'm finished with my nine weeks of basic training, I'll be off for job training as a Combat Engineer.

Okie dokie. First off, never- I repeat: NEVER- leave Pink Floyd playing on your stereo/CD player when you are planning on going to sleep. Waking up to the sound of all kinds of different alarm clocks from the beginning of the song 'Time' is highly unpleasant. Especially when there's no actual alarm clock to punish for the harassment.

Second, I'd like to apologize profusely to anyone who has a message of any kind sitting in my inbox. I have been all bogged down with all kinds of unnecessary bullshit from school, and I'm trying to get that mess sorted out. Unfortunately, that's cost me much of my free time and my dA messages have fallen behind. The way school is going right now, I won't have a portfolio prepared for college, so instead, I'm going to go into the Marines, and take advantage of a military funded education. Plus, they need war illustrators. There's no promise that the position will still be open once I finish my twelve weeks of basic training, and whatever other job training they give me, but I'm hoping. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I'm trying to make sure I think this through entirely, because I don't want to lose heart halfway through, and get my ass shot off. The only reason I'm trying to get all this crap sorted out now is becasue I got a credit check late last week, and they said I've got enough credits to graduate now if I want.

Hey guys, just a warning about these phrases/sayings/whatever you want to call them (I think I've said it before, but I'll say it again for the benefit of new eyes). They're not meant to be offensive. I just thought they were either funny/cool and figured I'd share them. If you choose to read on, please try to view them objectively. I don't want anyone popping a blood vessel over these.

Also, everything in parenthesis is borrowed from somewhere else. I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to claim these as my own ideas. I think I have one or two that I thought of, but it's possible that someone else had the same idea, and I just haven't run across it yet. If that's the case, then, eh, I dunno. I'll think of something when I'm less tired.

Random Fact: When I was outside earlier, I was shivering so hard that my earrings were clinking together.

Oh, one last thing- I've tried to copy down where I read each one, but I've slacked off on that. If I do any more of these kind of journal entries, I'll try to be a little more diligent on citing where they came from. If I forgot to credit anyone, I'm sorry. Feel free to throw rocks at me.

...Seriously, THIS is the LAST thing. I promise (mayhap). If anyone has any quips, clever idioms, or anything else they'd like to share, I'd love to hear 'em. :peace: :shamrock:

I found some really cool operatic rock by Patrizia. And you can listen to her here. I'd start with 'Fury'. It's the best one there.

I found a really cool site where you can download free eBooks called If you like reading, I'd check it out.

first, this site is dedicated to eliminating world hunger and improving english vocabulary. it's called It's a pretty cool site, and everyone should really check it out.

All she's asking is that you download a small word document. It takes like, five seconds. I downloaded it already, and my computer didn't blow up or anything.  Project download

UPDATE: I must live in a hole in the ground because I keep running into music that's been around for a while, but I had no idea it existed. First, the amazing creepy-cupcake found me some Therion. Which, if anyone else lives in a hole or under a rock like I do, is a symphonic heavy metal band. Birth of Venus Illegitima is pretty damn good. Give it a listen, or not. Whatever milks your cow.

And second, the pyromaniacal firestarter678 introduced me to Rammstein, and I got hooked on their song Sonne.

Eh, I'm done for now. I have a painting due at 3:15 in the afternoon tomorrow, and I've barely got it started. That, and I'm pretty sure that a few of my fingers are frozen solid. I feel like death warmed over, here.

     Hey, guys and gals. I've been bogged down with all kinds of work lately. Hence the lack of deviations and whatnot. I'll upload some stuff as soon as there's a break in the metaphorical clouds.

     Along with trying to juggle seventy billion projects at once, I've been nearly killing myself trying to get my hands on a copy of the song "Hey Pachuco" By Royal Crown Revue and I can't find it anywhere. Besides that song, I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting tunes. Mostly, I listen to rock (Any kind of rock) but I also like classical (heavy on the string instruments- cellos, violins, pianos... Stuff like that), and swing. There are a couple other genres that I like, but I have the memory span of a goldfish and can't for life of me remember what they are. One thing that I just drool over is opera sung to rock music (I'm talking soprano sung to electric guitar or something), but sadly, I haven't seen anything like that. If anyone knows of any bands/groups/whatever that carry a similar sound, I would love you forever for enlightening me. But that's just what I listen to. If you listen to something different, don’t hesitate to post! I'm always open to new music. And I kinda’ hopeother’s will get a little something out of this as well. Maybe try checking out some other people’s music.

EDIT: Oh, just a random thing here... My brother (<-- No, unfortunately that's not a typo) bought a thong. And tried it on at the store. This is my family :no:.

1) I am so freakin' tired you wouldn't believe it. But I'm not the least bit sleepy. Yes, there is a difference.

2) I could really use a cigarette right now. But my fingers are so cold that I don't think I could hold it, or even work the damn lighter. Yes, I am having a difficult time typing.

3) I've decided that I want the button on my computer to say 'destroy' or 'annihilate' instead of 'delete'. I think it would be much more amusing. :evillaugh:

4) Rum-soaked pineapple sounds awesome right now. Too bad I don't have any rum.
