Korra Anger.gif by Hofftits

Shock!tober continues unabated!

Just a few things...

I. I'm digging Book IV of The Legend of Korra, although... i really think the other shoe needs to drop soon.  I admit, i'll be a little let down if this season, the final season of the Avatarverse ever, comes down to Korra fighting a determined dictator who wants to reunite the Earth Kingdom which was... already united before.  We need something bigger, right?  Something having to do with Raava and the spirits and the existence of the Avatar and all of that?  Something that pulls it all together?

I guess we'll see.

II.  I'm currently frantically turdpolishing my 2012 works before moving on to my 2009 works.  I didn't think... they needed... much help, but some of them do.  Not much help, but a few tweaks here and there are making them look more solid...

Acaciathorn's Evergreen Zoel by Chronorin Alexis Kingsley: Rise of the Queen of Scales IV by Chronorin Murk No More by Chronorin Scourge by Chronorin Psilocyber and the Ash Rat by Chronorin Zoeldome by Chronorin Catgirl by Chronorin 
...yeah, you can tell these look a bit better. 

III. I'm a bit ashamed to admit that i don't really know who Ultron is... he appears to be some sort of wonderful mechanical man?

IV. Reading about :iconvanheist: VanHeist's plans to get serious with his Bomangoverse, move away from DeviantArt, get paid more, and quit his day job... are making me really think long and hard about what i'm doing.  So far, i'm still kind of mired in loserdom, a journeyman with no professional destination.  I have to get from here to somewhere else although i'm not entirely sure how. 

V. Today, i'm thinking about the East Coast Liberal Elite... why?  Well, when i hear NPR in my car on Sunday mornings, they play a show called "Says You!"  It's a show of wit and wisdom, bluff and bluster, don't ya know. It features two teams of recurring panelists who answer incredibly tricky word game questions that require quite a bit of education.  They play for "points," although these points hardly matter, and are often rewarded for shows of verve and humor.  It's all so... fancy.  You can just see the sweater vests and corduroy jackets with leather patches on the elbows.

You know what kinda questions they ask?  This is the last one i remember...

"Preposterous. Gigantic. Cephalopod. Monopoly. Sophomore -- which of these words does not belong?"


...tricky, right?  

But after a few minutes of mulling and musing, they get the answer.  "Gigantic" does not belong because the other four are all oxymoronic if you examine their parts; i.e., Pre(before) + post(behind), Cephalo(head) + pod(foot), Mono(one) + poly(many), Sopho(wise) + more(fool).

...ain't that something else?

I kind of sigh when i hear this show.  It is... a rare glimpse into the fancy Boston east-coast liberal world of Harvard and Yale, of large patrician families like the one that Ralph Fiennes belonged to in that movie Quiz Show, its big family Christmas dinners followed by wassailing and brandy, it's old family money and charity luncheons and regattas off Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, it's your dad explaining that he voted for Romney instead of Obama because, well, Mitt let him copy his Lit notes that one semester.  It's mittens and crossword puzzles and coffee and handwritten letters and girls named "Phoebe" and sweaters and encyclopedias and all that stuff.

Oh, what a world.  We're taught to fetishize Hollywood and New York, but what about the old elite empire stretching across Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, New Hampshire, and Maine?  Can't you just see these people?  Enjoying the brisk autumn air, sipping their pumpkin spice lattes and wondering where to summer next summer?  Listening to "Says You!" on a Sunday morning?


I sometimes wish i could have been part of that world.  It's not a world you can enter, you kinda have to be born into it. 

Me, i'm still stuck in Shitville with the asshole losers.  I graduated with honors from Fuckface Academy.  

It ain't the same, Charlie.  It ain't the same.

Sometimes, i just wish i had some other life.

....anyone here belong to that world?  Anyone here know what the hell i'm even talking about?

"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.

I seriously cannot stop watching this scene:… 

3 deviants said Oh, that's a classic right there. Love it.
3 deviants said I'm too young to know what that is?
3 deviants said What, did you have a few drinks this morning before posting this? I think you did, didn't you?
3 deviants said I don't need any dildo jokes, in fact. You're not the guy.
2 deviants said I'm Canadian, so John Candy = National Treasure.
1 deviant said Mmmm.... comically-large pancakes...
1 deviant said Hey, i don't have to take any shit from you. Do you know who i am? In the field of global web-based art communities, I'M A GOD!
No deviants said Clowns are just evil, they just are.
No deviants said ...i want you to click your mouse, and get outta here.
No deviants said Chronorin is so boring, he makes me puke.

I just thought of a song you must hear!…

There are lots of versions of the Sephiroth theme, but this is one of the best.  It's bonkers.
