Blackadder Prince Regent by iwanttorentawombat



This time of the year is always hard for me.  The beautiful chilly winter has largely faded, and the merciless onslaught of Summer is imminent. 

Most people like summer.  If you live in a northern area, it's probably a great time of the year.  But here in the South, it can be punishing.  I don't have anything against heat, in principle -- i greatly enjoy the warm radiance that comes from an oven or candle or campfire on a cold winter's night.  But the heat of Tennessee in late Spring?  That foggy, sluggish, all-consuming humidity?  The relentless buzzing of hatching insects and the siroccos of pollen?  The glare of the early morning sun?  The endless Summer stretch of 99-degree cloudless days?

I find it unbearable.  it's a gauntlet. I stare at my calendar and yearn for October 1st, the most magical of days.  Only five months and 25 days to go.



Everything i said in my last journal stands.  As i continue to (slowly) learn Adobe Illustrator, i have no other projects in mind apart from drawing an entire boatload buttload of characters belonging to Mr. Metamorphaxx and myself. 

And pump out a few more chibis, when i have the time.

And soon, once i get some of those out of the way, i DO plan to attempt some digital paintings.  I have some big ideas in my pointy little head.  All i need is the time.


Now that i'm done with watching The Blackadder series and Code Geass, i really need to get around to seeing Game of Thrones somehow.  I hear it's good.

As for the upcoming summer movie season?

My thoughts are best expressed by the RedletterMedia guys.

Yeah, i'm probably not making it to the theater much this summer.  I miss the old days, when i was looking forward to the next big movie, like Prince Caspian, or Iron Man II.  Seems like a long time ago.

Despite that video, i AM looking forward to How to Train Your Dragon II.

"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.

I made some New Years Resolutions a while back.…

Now that I've got the opportunity to, I want to at the same time, forgive you for the things you said and beg your forgiveness for the things I said.

I can't promise I won't keep making political commentary and I don't expect you to stop yourself. Our opinions are our own and I have no desire to butt heads with you about it. You were my friend before you were a headbutter, and while your art is fantastic and beautiful, it's not why I counted you among my friends.

It would be naive to expect things to go back to how they were, but I'd like to try rebuilding things. It delighted me to see you enjoying Lone Candle and it was heartbreaking when we clashed over something as awful as politics....

So, as an idea, I ask that as a foundation, either we disregard the other's political stuff, or if we do talk about it, we both keep civil, friendly and remember the friendship.

Regardless of the prospects of rebuilding the friendship or not, I want the air cleared and no more ill will between us, bud.

Thanks for listening... and here's hoping.

Yeah... Been pretty cheesed lately. Won't lie. Was angry, was pissed, literally suffering on account of sciatica that shows no signs of stopping. Can't promise I won't write political discourse in the future and I can't promise I won't be pissed off. We're only human.

But I can promise I won't get on your case, defame or denigrate you. To my great shame, I did for a time out of spite and rage.

I've had this sciatica problem since my birthday in December and the mere act of walking brings literally debilitating pain.

And I could have gone back before making this apology and erasing all of the parts in my earlier journals where I bashed you, but it would dishonor the integrity of my apology if I just whitewashed. My shameful words should be held to account.

Come what may, Chron, I'm no longer angry at you. I had thought rage would be a hell of an anesthetic, even for the pain of the heart I was suffering long before the sciatica was a problem.

Whatever you decide, my once-friend, I shall respect it.
