I hate feeling sick. I really do. Of course I hate the fact that its because I need to wake up and take Claritin. xP Oh well, nothing I can do about that for awhile. This didn't start till summer rolled in, and being my first summer in Canada I hope that next summer its not this bad. Cause I HAAATE winter and I would really like to not hate summer too.
In other news I recently started watching True Blood. HOLEESHIT! It's such an awesome series. Scott was making fun of me and asking me why every girl has to watch things with vampires. Apparently I am now apart of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Vagina. :/ Regardless, this is an awesome series. It does contain a lot of blood, sex and violence but honestly I don't mind. Being a child of the eighties when I was growing up that was all rated R movies contained. I couldn't wait till I was 18 so I could watch rated R movies too. Then once I hit 18 all the rated R movies sucked bawls. x_X So its nice when shows and series go all out like this. Somehow, I feel like I earned it, having struggled through adolescence to reach adulthood. All of this to watch tits and ass on tv. xD
In gaming news, apparently the guys over at Scrolls of Lore
discovered that there might be two new playable races in the near future. For halloween this year there was discovered two set of highly detailed goblin & worgen masks. And with all the hinting that Greymane wall might open up in the near future the signs are pointing towards these two being released in the next expansion. Of course WoW did put up more masks the next day, but since these masks are super low quality one has to wonder... Source
Also, announced at ComicCon this weekend, Capcom is FINALLY bringing over Ace Attorney Investigation: Miles Edgeworth. SUPER EXCITING!!! I know I've been a big fan of the series for awhile, so having a new game to play is awesome. It comes out February 16th, and you can see a preview of it here
Shocking news coming out of Phoenix, AZ today. Apparently after an 8 year old girl was brutally raped by 4 boys, the parents of the girl disowned her."The girl is under the care of the Arizona Child Protective Service (CPS) because her parents said she had shamed them, and they did not want her back."BBC News
Luckily for the girl, 9 familes across the US have come forward in an effort to adopt her. It's crazy that there are still people who think that way about rape. ( Now for something different! )
Gonna go get all dressed up, since my Scottybooboo is supposed to be taking me to see Harry Potter tonight. I'm so excited!!! ^o^

Been awake most of the night working on graphics for sushi_graphics
. However, this isn't because I needed to get these done tonight, its because I couldn't get to sleep. I tried, and right before I was about to nod off my Scottyboo accidentally woke me. Cruel, cruel world... T.T
In other news, lots of interesting things going on! Valve recently released new information on the new special infected. The "Spitter" will hurl spit bombs into groups of survivors, causing them to separate and ultimately become vulnerable & alone. Definitely sounds exciting, too bad we have to wait till November to play.
The guys over at fortaxreasons
releashed the conclusion to their RDCCDX: Digital Pirates of Dark Water Saga at Otakon this last weekend. Needless to say it was awesome. Head over to their youtube profile
to check out their latest video, and the previous ones if you haven't already.
In sadder news, your iPhones will be made with more despair than usual. A chinese worker who was suspected of stealing a fourth generation prototype iPhone committed suicide."He worked for Foxconn in the southern city of Shenzhen and was responsible for shipping 16 iPhone prototypes to Apple. One went missing. Sun reported the loss, and the company launched an investigation.
Three days later the worker jumped to his death.
Sun's former classmates have told Chinese newspapers that during that investigation he was beaten, his house was searched and he was locked up in a room alone. They say he described the experience in an online chat with them as one of the most humiliating experiences of his life." BBC News
Seriously, how messed up is that? I wonder how bad of a lawsuit Apple will get stuck with when the missing iPhone shows up. Of course I know nothing of the labor laws in that region so they could get off no worse for the wear. I do know one thing though, the Macstapo is serious business. :/
Also announced today was the new World of Warcraft movie. Sam Raimi(Evil Dead, Spiderman, Drag Me To Hell) is set to direct it and Charles Roven(producer of The Dark Knight
) is going to produce it. The movie will be made by Warner Bros & Legendary Pictures, so hopefully it wont be a low budget film. I pray this will be a decent video game movie. I would hate to see Hollywood ruin another franchise that I love. You can read the press release
for more of the gritty details, and with Blizzcon & ComicCon around the corner I'm sure we'll be hearing more about this project.
As a reward for reading this super long entry I have a surprise for you!( Oooooooh wut could it be?!??!?!1 )
Think that's all the news for tonight. Don't worry though, I'll be back tomorrow to ramble some more. Stay classy Dreamwidth!

It's summer time and I have been craving scary stories like you would not believe. I rented a bunch of scary movies the other night, and I think I might rent some more tonight. I may even start playing Fatal Frame again. I'm not sure why summer time puts me in the mood to be terrified, I wonder if anyone else feels that way. On our way out, Scott and I will probably pick up some Tim Horton's too. Maple dipped & honey curled donuts sound delicious... That and an iced cappuccino with french vanilla shots. Mmmm...
Maybe this will help put you all in the mood as well, so I'll post some scary stories for you all to read by candlelight. >:D
There was a hunter in the woods, who, after a long day hunting, was in the middle of an immense forest. It was getting dark, and having lost his bearings, he decided to head in one direction until he was clear of the increasingly oppressive foliage. After what seemed like hours, he came across a cabin in a small clearing. Realizing how dark it had grown, he decided to see if he could stay there for the night. He approached, and found the door ajar. Nobody was inside. The hunter flopped down on the single bed, deciding to explain himself to the owner in the morning.
As he looked around the inside of the cabin, he was surprised to see the walls adorned by several portraits, all painted in incredible detail. Without exception, they appeared to be staring down at him, their features twisted into looks of hatred and malice. Staring back, he grew increasingly uncomfortable. Making a concerted effort to ignore the many hateful faces, he turned to face the wall, and exhausted, he fell into a restless sleep.
The next morning, the hunter awoke — he turned, blinking in unexpected sunlight. Looking up, he discovered that the cabin had no portraits, only windows.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~( More scary stories under the cut... )
Hope you all enjoy the stories, have to get back to work on comics now. xD

I hate setting up CSS scripts for journals, and this one was horrible to figure out. Just couldn't decide on what kind of look I wanted for this journal. Thank GOD for mintyapple
. Gonna tweak it a bit more but I think I'm almost done. ^^;
Also want to throw up a quick video for you all. I know its a few months old but its so incredibly adorable I can't help but post it. Hope you all enjoy!
It's been awhile since I've posted to a journal, its nice to be back.
Lately I've been in a bit of a slump. My creativity is down, and I just feel like watching tv/sleeping all day. It really is a struggle to do anything. I am trying something new, and maybe it will help. Finally purchased a domain and server for the comic I do. Maybe I'll be able to get back into the swing of things if I don't have to rely on deviantart to upload comics. I hate that system so much. I don't mind submitting art, but uploading comics on there depress me. xD
I think the new site will help things though. Also will be reworking the layout for it. Arg, CSI is distracting me. Will write more later. <3
