Summer hurts

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 4, 2012, 4:09 PM
Ok, whoa. It's about damn time I wrote a new journal. Also, sorry for the absence of new comics and stuff these past two or three weeks.
I'm on vacation (in other words, sweating my ass off by working around our house in the middle of nowhere), with barely any internet to go around. On top of that, my laptop refuses to get over itself and start accepting my tablet's drivers. I'll have to deal with those unruly electronic devices before I can draw anything properly. Until then I've found some older stuff on my hard disk that I'll upload in a sec.


Have I ever mentioned how much I hate summer? Because I really, really do. I can't focus on anything except this excruciating, unrelenting heat.
Here's a nice place we've been to though,




and I've been playing around with some Danball Senki model kits




My brother and I went to see Dark Knight Rises on my birthday. It was a bit of a let down to be honest. A very chaotic movie with a pretty weak plot. It would've been fun watching Bane wreck havoc in Gotham if it wasn't for his voice. The best part about it were two really funny guys who sat next to us, cracking jokes at every opportunity.
The week before that I got to see Spiderman with my friend. Man, those crane drivers! Who even needs the Avengers with those guys around.

While I'm already talking about movies.
Here are some recommendations for all those of you who are currently bored and don't know what to watch:

Mindless fun: Iron Sky (2012), Vampires (1998), Tekken (2010)
For the weird ones: Frailty (2001), Dahmer (2002)
Something between: Brotherhood (2010)


Oh yeah, if anyone wants a commission in exchange for a premium membership thing, I'd be up for that right after getting my tablet in working order.

HOLY MOTHER OF DUCT TAPE!!!! Who's the crazy motherfucker that just gave me a one year subscription!?!?!?
I will find out who you are and when I do, I shall force my love onto thee!

Sparky baby, you need to tell me when you go on vacation next. I'll fold myself up nice and neat into your suitcase.

I'm small enough!

I agree, the Dark Knight could have been better, much better. I liked the original Bane and the accent he had in the Arkham games and in the comic-based animated series.
In my opinion, the people that make jokes about the movie are the best people to sit next to sometimes, especially if the movie is dragged out so long like Batman.

And the Summer, oh goodness gracious. Sometimes my summers burn with intensity of a thousand suns.

Yeah... worst thing they did to Bane though, is when they revealed that Talia was behind it all. Up until then I was kind of able to ignore all the other glaring issues...

I used to think Talia was cool, even in the Arkham games, but then they went and did this and I hated her because she's not supposed to be that evil.
And I always thought Bane was a prisoner at Blackgate and that he was the one born in prison.

Yeah. We're all sweating and complaining over each other. Fun times.

But better than nothing.

God summer should be over already. It hasn't rained in half a year here....

Honestly, I'm not a super huge fan of the Dark Knight trilogy, but I tend to love the villains and I really loved Bane. And Anne Hathaway did and amazing job, but that's just my opinion.

That spot looks gorgeous! Too bad electronics and nature don't like each other, though. That's a bugger dude. The stuff you have posted though looks really good! I feel like I'm seeing an improvement in you, son. :icongoodjobplz:

You ever need to talk or anything, feel free to PM me! I've been on a lot more recently, so I might actually get to read it. Or just shoot the shit, whatever you want!

Glad to hear you're doing alright. <3

Bane was cool until Talia turned out to be behind everything... That was the most stupid "plot twist" of possibly all time... I mean they carefully build up Bane's character, just to trample it down by making him nothing more than a minion.
ugh, I get a bad taste in my mouth just remembering that.

Yeah, I'm doing fine. Heat makes it hard to muster up the energy for sulking and being angry, hah. Thank you for caring C: and for the offer. Being there for people is the best thing one can do.

Was I unconsciously part of that summer?

Well happy (belated) birthday, Sparky! :D

Glad I'm not the only one who was kind of bleh on the Batman movie. I thought it took itself waaay too seriously. 8U

Good to hear an update from you. ^__^

Thank you C:

Yeah... it was mediocre and on a much too large scale imo.
And Talia being the brains behind all of it was kind of a let down.
I was imagining Bane just toying with people to see what they'll do. Like a huge social experiment for no other reason than to rub Batman's nose in it and to enjoy the resulting chaos and watching if somebody will try and do something about it just to trample them back down. Bane just seemed like the guy for it. But being stripped that at the end just ugh...

Yep, definitely felt like a twist just for the sake of having a twist. >_>

I know all of this feel. I've spent most of my summer inside because of the heat. If I hadn't gotten into that car accident and still had a vehicle, I think I might've gone to visit people. But. Yeah. TOO HOT.
And ahhh that looks like a nice place to swim and not give a crap about life ; u ; baman

HOLD UP! You were in an accident!?!?!??! I hope nothing happened to you or the people with you. Jesus...

Seriously I don't see why people choose summer to go places and see stuff. It's cramped everywhere and hot and smelly ugh.... worst time of the year to go see nice places...

There were lots of people there though, I was lucky and managed to sneak a shot when that particular area was empty, but just outside the frame were people grilling on the beach...

Yeah, it happened last December, so it's whatever now.
And I just got slashed up with glass. Nobody else was hurt, so it's all good, but I lost my first car... :C

That's true, but being stuck at the house I live in with roommate's this entire time is KILLING me. I have turned down so many party invites and gatherings because I don't want to use my roommate's car to go to them :C
Well, nonetheless the photos are beautiful and I'm still jealous you got to experience, grilling or not hahaha. All I've seen this summer other than my laptop screen are the 2 conventions I worked at. That's it hahaha XD

Yeah, Catwoman was a completely unnecessary character in the movie. Added nothing to it.
The general atmosphere was fine, but I couldn't get over the Gangs of New York style clash of the cops with the baddies. It just seemed stupid considering they all had weapons. And there were other parts of the movie that just felt illogical or randomly thrown together.
But the movie was entertaining and it certainly wasn't boring at any point.

Why'd you skip Spidey though? Firm supporter of the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man or is it something else?

I LOVED the movie though yeah some parts didn't make much sense but other then that I liked it. The ending was a little too mushy fro me with him and Catwomen. But other then that I loved it. And yeah I loved Tobey Maguire as Spideramn the movie cam out when I was 5 and so I kinda laways saw him as Spiderman nad then the rest of the Spiderman movies came out.
