Summer's End : Autumnal Anticipation

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 30, 2015, 3:42 AM

Locations of Site Visitors


This is an exciting time, kind of!  Every since the climate began to shift, we've had these delayed autumns where it stays hotter and wetter longer into the year, and the month of September is soggy and warm and way too similar to April for any sane human...

...but it should be getting chilly soon.  Not today, not tonight, but soon.  You have no idea how much i long for that first chilly wind.  It's like a drug to a wintery freak like me.  

ONLY THREE MONTHS LEFT IN 2015?  Fuck... it's starting to go by pretty fast now.  Sigh.  I had a whole long list of goals and projects that i wanted to finish by the end of the year, but there's only so many weeks left.  I wish i could turn off the idea-generating part of my brain so i could just finish up everything already on my list.

Hey, at least i'm finally doing landscapes.  Those are worthwhile even if no one really likes them because they're not cute mutant babes.


What a lame summer this was.  All i did was work.  I barely saw any of my scattered friends and didn't do anything exciting at all.  

At my job... oh, it's getting bad again.  I foresee a very turbulent autumn there.  We had enough employees for about two weeks there, but now they're dropping like flies and they're scrambling to get all the shifts filled.  And while i like working six days a week, i do NOT like working 16 hours straight.  Double shifts, i hate them.  Call me a wussy if you will, but i need to sleep... like, every day.  I am not a robot.  

I've never appreciated the modern wonder of text messaging as much as i do now.  The Schedule Lady can text me changes to my schedule, instead of calling me and waking me up when i'm sleeping.  They change my schedule every day or so now, sending me to different places that are... well, very different.

If i'm at 8R or the OH, there's almost no work to do, which means i can post up with my laptop and do whatever i want for eight hours.  WHATEVER I WANT.

If i'm at the WC or KH, i can get about 5 hours of my own work done before stuff starts happening.

But if i'm at O or O-SOUTH, then i might get three hours of work done, while sitting in a really uncomfortable chair and fidgeting and grumbling and not really being able to concentrate.  It sucks.

Sigh... i have four O-SOUTH days in my immediate future.  Man, i hate that place.

Every day, i just struggle to get done what i can.  I have so many grand ideas.  And just not enough time.  


There's really no question that the best and boldest new cartoon out there (apart from our beloved Steven Universe) is... Rick and Morty.  It's endlessly sick and wonderful...

....but the next-best new cartoon would have to be Moonbeam City.

...oh, god yes.  

If you didn't grow up in the '80s, you might not understand.  That flat, Art-Deco Patrick Nagel-inspired art style?  It's... beautiful.  This show is what we thought the world of the future would look like back then.  Not like how it looks now, which is crappy.  I would watch this show even if it was in another language with no subtitles.  But it's in English and also very funny, so that's even better.

"A man shitting in a hat is not enough; he must shit in two hats, and then spill one of them." -- Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

"That is most of it, being a wizard -- seeing and listening. The rest is technique."
-- Schmendrick the Magician

"When I was alive, I believed -- as you do -- that time was at least as real and solid as myself, and probably more so. I said 'one o'clock' as though I could see it, and 'Monday' as though I could find it on the map; and I let myself be hurried along from minute to minute, day to day, year to year, as though I were actually moving from one place to another. Like everyone else, I lived in a house bricked up with seconds and minutes, weekends and New Year's Days, and I never went outside until I died, because there was no other door. Now I know that I could have walked through the walls."

-- The Skull.

"The first duty in life is to assume a pose. What the second is, no one has yet discovered."
--Oscar Wilde

“Meaning is not in things but in between them."
-- Norman O. Brown

You're never going to find true happiness, what are you gonna do, cry about it?"
-- Weird Al Yankovic

"What's wrong with running away from reality when it sucks?"
-- Shinji Ikari.

"Life IS pain, your highness. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something."
-- Westley, The Princess Bride

"I'm not in the business of seeing whatever pleases YOU."
-- Master Shake

"This is why i hate middle-aged people -- all they want is attention."
-- Super Milk-Chan

"Comedy is a dying artform. But tragedy? Now THAT'S funny."
-- Bender

"Principal Skinner is an old man who lives at the school. I had to go to his office once because i was dirty."
-- Ralph Wiggum

"The Durions had won the day, but left behind were Bruidd ruins; for the Bruidd had left a Sign, or a Poem, as some would say, and some would not."
-- Stephen Gooch

"He who would break a thing to know what it is has left the path of wisdom."
-- Gandalf.

"The Universe is not mystical in how it exists, but in that it exists."
-- Ludwig Wittgenstein.

"All you need is love. Love is all you need."
-- John Lennon.

"There's no such thing as love. It's just another puffed-up word used by Madison Avenue to sell their skin creams and two-seater cars!"
-- Stewie Griffin.

You! Citizen! Are you still loyal to DeviantArt? 

41 deviants said Yes! I love this place and I will NEVER leave. DeviantArt forever!
21 deviants said Meh. I come here still. But it'll never be like it was in the old days...
8 deviants said Sorta. I like this place a lot, but to be honest I prefer Tumblr, Pixiv, Artstation, or some other site more.
1 deviant said Other (tell me.)
No deviants said Bah. I'm about to give up on this place. DeviantArt is lame now, because reasons.
No deviants said I'm done. Bury this place.
