So I'm like... Thirty now. Am I supposed to feel more adult than normal?
I don't even..?

Comicon in Manchester was awesome!
I met some friends for the first time, in person!
I met Robet Llewelyn!
For those who may not know, he's Kryten in Red Dwarf!
Such a funny chap and down to Earth in person!



Yes, the picture is shaky because I was fan-girling so hard. And hungover.

Also, Billy Talents new album dropped on Friday. It's been on repeat ever since...
Highly reccommended!!

Go grab Afraid of Heights!

So ends another years E3 convention.
And while I haven't kept on top of it, I have been watching back a few highlights.
For those who may not know, I'm a massive video game geek.
A few things piqued my interest, such as this, and the next Quantic Dream game, Detroit: Become Human.
This track was featured in the trailer for Death Stranding, the upcoming came for Hideo Kojima.









Also. Cigarettes after Sex.

So apparently yesterday the new Paul Simon album, Stranger to Stranger dropped.
Anyone got this? Haven't decided if I should get it or not. :la:
So far it's sounding pretty good.
I was expecting another 'Graceland', so this might take some getting used to. :smoking:


 

Also.








And, seems like Androids really do dream of Electric Sheep.

And in Video Games

And thank you so much to lunaticofsilence for these ones.
:iconlunaticofsilence:
They're incredible.








:iconlunaticofsilence:

WordsHaunt me
Haunt me like the moon
The glowing ghost face in the sky
My guardian ghoul
The facade has slipped away
Not a vestige left
of the vessel of a poet
All I am
All I ever was
Is a mystery to me
I'm done trying
to make my words pretty
Into poetry
Let them tumble as they may
Like the seeds of weeds in spring
Bloowing in the breeze
Drifting endlessly
Like dandelion seeds
Wished on by those
who put their hope
in simple things
Does it really matter if
anyone's listening
Every mask in this masquerade
Is losing its shape
Its form
How was this darkness born
From light
Cradled by the night
Let the cries of those
Locked in silence
Be your lullabies
I can beat meaning
From this breaking heart
But how can I put silence
Screams
Severed sentences
Into words
Can not contain
Can not retain
Can not remain
Formless
Must create a shape
fashion a voice
from this sadness
This void
Must make sense of chaos
Lost in the madness
Of my own making
Lonely
Lonely
Aching
But I'm in love with the feeling
I spend
What what whatIf I drown
in illusion
will my death
be a lie?
If I drown
in silence
will my suffocation
scream for me?
I'm sorry;
the number
you never
reached
was never
in service.
I'm sorry;
I am sorry
I am sorry
I am
I
I'm sorry I am I
I'm sorry;
the numb
you are feeling
is not a feeling
because numb
is the absence
of
(I can't stop)
I can not stop
I can not
I can
I
Be still
Do you hear the angels talking
through the static?
Be still.
Do you hear the angels
too?
Be still.
Do you hear the sound
of starlight
in your sufforcation?
Dear title that alludes me,There is a star underneath the sea.
Dear God,
People are always asking
if you're real,
and I'm always asking
if you're real.
But maybe I've been asking
all the wrong questions.
Am I real?
Maybe I should question my own existence more often.
Dear sky,
I don't know why
but I've been thinking about you often, lately.
I don't have fantasies of flying
but I dream about being a cloud
or falling but never reaching the ground. Thank you for being blue.
You are something I can count on.
Every day I sink a little deeper
and that's not nearly as morbid as it sounds.
Dear silence,
You told me to shut up
but why are you even talking
if your name is silence?
And why should I shut up
if even silence speaks?
Hmmmm?
Dear words,
You make me feel
so many things.
I can write
about anything
and that makes me feel
like a king,
not really,
but I needed to rhyme so...
Oh, words....
You make me feel like God.
But I am not God
I am dog
and I am proud to be.
It's funny how God is a writer too.
He wrote the bible

<Pointless entry. Move along. Nothing to see here> :meow:

I know the majority of my friends here probably won't be into this kind of thing, but I'm super excited for this. The next installment of the legendary Metal Gear series. Looks like Kojima has been a busy boy, what with Project Ogre, the Fox Engine, and Metal Gear Solid 5 also on the slate, as well as a movie.




I also wanted to share this. Stumbled on this band, because I was searching Youtube for Murder by Death... You know, that film that brought all the big detective names together to play the murder mystery. One of my favourite films. :lol:
"Ahh... This room filled with empty people!!"
I must watch this again soon... :O




Anyway, Muder By Death:




While I'm here, I could share some other channels I found. One is Vsauce and the other is Numberphile. I'd never have pegged myself to be watching these channels, but both are really interesting. :D

Regarding my uploads, or lack thereof... I got nothing. :D
I keep buying magazines to find some inspiration, but nothing. I'm just lazy. :sleep:
I have so many things I want to do (Big list...), but lack the drive to see them through. At least I have the want to to something now...

What's been taking up that time..? Dragon's Dogma... :XD:

Nothing much new to report. I am now on break from work for the week! :happycry:
What to do..? Not that anything I ever plan happens. Video games it is!! :lol:

Also, a few nights ago, I went raking through some cupboards, because I knew I had these. I was given them a long time ago, but I put them aside because I knew there was little to no chance of finding film, and even if I did, finding someone who will develop it will be hard/expensive. I would love to give these a try though. Kodak Instamatic 133, Kodak Brownie 127, and this box camera, Zeiss Ikon Box Tengor 54/2. But I need to track down some 126 film, 127 film, and whichever film for the box(I think it's 120 film..? :B)
First I should really clean them, and check everything appears to be in working order. Anyone with experience with any of these?




This one below... Taken on HTC One X, and run through an app called Pixlr-omatic by Autodesk. There's also a browser based version for you to play with. Should I add this one as a deviation? How do you feel about "iPhoneography", and should it okay to upload it here? (I haven't actually added anything that isn't "iPhoneography" yet... Need to work on that... :paranoid:)
But in the last week or so I've seen a few articles about iPhoneography (I can't remember where now.) mentioning about how camera phones can almost rival point-and-clicks. If you don't like the sound of that, you could take it to the next level. :lol:



I haven't listened to Edguy in such a long time, and this song is awesome, so I thought I'd share it. The video is also pretty funny. Tobias Sammet... ♥!! If you haven't heard anything Tobias Sammet, you're really not doing yourself a favour. You must check out some Edguy, and Avantasia!! ♥

Second time writing this journal because Firefox is a bitch... :smoking:




I never thought I'd see the day... :happycry:
I don't believe it's deserved, and it's definitely not exemplary. However, it's given me a motivational kick!
Thank you so much DpressedSoul!! :heart:

So for the longest time I've been demotivated, stuck in a rut, and otherwise out of ideas. And I'm really out of practice. I was thinking about trying to find my old Photoshop work, and linking it here, to gauge interest in whether or not I should return to the dark side. Very rusty with Photoshop, and even more-so with my camera. However, this last week or so I've had a few ideas floating around in the back of my mind. I just lack the means to put pen to paper,  or so to speak. I just can't get the ideas out. :stupidme:

So just a few questions. What inspires, influences, or motivates you? Music? Emotion? What makes you decide what your work will be, and what it will look like? I feel that because I make myself hold no convictions in anything anymore, and try to keep an open mind, there are too many things just to settle on one idea. Or like Ronnie Corbett in the chair, telling how he took a course in decision making, and when he'd finished, he couldn't decide whether to stay on or not. :lol:

Do you feature? Would you like to see your face in this space? And would you like to see me start doing features? My thought about doing them might also help me along and inspire me. Make me look for new ideas, new things, forge a new path for myself.
Another question for you, if you do feature: How do you choose? Do you choose(like above) by music or emotion? Lyrics, or poetry? It's just a suggestion that I do I guess, but being a bit more pro-active might be helping myself in the long run.

Off I slink, back into the shadows.
TL;DR :smoking:


I had to wade through some likes on Youtube to find this! Hope you like!

This case against Remy(InnerDepravity) has been on for quite some time now. I'm only linking it here, as the English version of Bloody Blow was uploaded earlier today, and I thought it in good spirit to share. I don't have too much to say on it, as it has been going on for a long time, and I haven't been keeping abreast of the news. What is your opinion though? Is it right to persecute this man for his style of art? Should he be censored and imprisoned?

The original journal can be found here, and his website, RemyFx.
It is also possible to follow up on Facebook.





I also just found out where it's possible to view Instagram photos via your browser. I always thought it was a little daft to be able to take and upload photos, but not able to see them online. Look up Webstagram. It allows you to log in, with your Instagram account and browse through the photo feeds. It's a lot easier than just on an iOs device. And there's also news of Instagram being ported to Android soon. And a recent update to the Hipstamatic app, which allows uploading directly to your Instagram account, which is pretty awesome. Do you use either Instagram or Hipstamatic? What are your usernames? Do you use a lot of mobile or smart phone photography apps? Which are your favourites?

My Instagram can be found here.

So I've been here for a few years now. I've left several old accounts. Left Deviantart itself for a long time. This is coming close to a full year on a new account. But I spend very little time here, unlike I used to. I've uploaded nothing. So why am I here?

I met a lot of people, made a few friends, who I missed. I used to love checking out the art and things that were going on. I wanted to learn from other people. That didn't happen. I found a lot of things I loved, and held these up on the pedestals where they belonged, wishing I could produce something that great too. Because I put myself in awe of the works I loved, I felt I could never achieve the same standards, and didn't try because I knew I couldn't do the same. I don't remember exactly why I left, but I remember seeing much hatred in places on here, and I felt I couldn't cope with it. A lot of things have happened, and I've changed. For better, for worse? I don't know. In short, I started my "short break" from dA, life, and many other things a few years ago, and I'm still on it. It feels like it will never end...

I don't upload anything here, because I have nothing to upload. I'm empty and drained. I kept deleting my files because I was never happy with them and now I'm left with nothing. I'm hoping that this will change, as I'm taking another break right now. Hopefully I can gather some thoughts, and inspirations. Hopefully I will be able to pick up a camera or Photoshop soon. I'm years out of practice, and I wasn't very good to start with. I still have a lot to learn, but I have to start learning, by doing.


On another note, and one that is important to me. Today is the tenth anniversary of the passing of a great man. Spike Milligan, Hero, Author, and Raving Lunatic. Writer, creator and one of the stars of The Goon Show. One of the fore-fathers of alternate humour, without him, we wouldn't have had so many great comedies over the years.
Humour is the only thing that has kept me running for a long time, and I feel it's all I know. Without his humour I'd probably not be here.



"I'm a hero with cowards legs."
"I'm not afraid of dying, I just don't want to be there when it happens."

If you have a favourite Spike moment, please feel free to share it.

Love, Light and Peace. :heart:
