so.. here's the most recent installment of work doodles.
i just kept staring at the paper, but nothing happened. . . so i decided to just draw a bunch of random crap to see what came out, and it sorta evolved into this cuban/vampire looking guy.

still having ink in the blue bic pen = awesome.
heheh... today, we got so many calls i didn't even have time to doodle though.. i started getting really impatient, and grabbed a brick of sticky notes, and started animating some stick figure figures beating the STICK out of each other. i think this is my new favorite thing to do at work...

there's gotta be a program that works like a flip pad on the computer where you can create your own animations.. right? people?? cry for answers??? too much fun.

other random news - i tried to do a back flip.

i snapped my head back, right on to the carpet, which is lovingly spread over a slab of CEMENT!! wow... i felt like there was an entire floor pressing on my head for a few minutes.. and the next few days i felt a little more dazed than usual...

i will do a back flip. i swear - it's physically WAY easy to do, but the mental commitment to do one demands 100%... i think life is full of mental back flips too, but they work the same way - if you're not 100% committed to making some kind of choice, nothing's gonna happen. that, or something really bad'll happen. success=commitment.
which makes me think... since success=commitment, even though my back flip sucked all sorts of racial profanities, if i was 100% there mentally, would i have still landed on my head?? maybe. maybe not.. reminds me of a quote from like, some inventor or something.

"That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do - not that the nature of the thing has changed, but the will to do has increased."

if you could perfectly acquire a talent or ability the very first time you tried, trying wouldn't be as meaningful then... would it. you in essence would have no will, yourself, if that's how life worked for everybody.

hmmmm..... interesting.

Majin Mario: The Red Kamehameha

Mario is freaking INSANE!! i've always sorta had this funny story line in my head, where Mario pretty much just loses it, and goes on this violent rampage throughout the mushroom kingdom universe. here's a glimpse of his madness.

it's kinda like a Majin Buu or Majin Vegeta thing, if you ever saw that part of dragon ball z. or kinda like Ryu's dark hadou thing, if you tried following street fighter II, after the... ummm... original street fighter II. so yeah... like that, but Mario.

more secret photoshop moves welcome (*coff* Kory! *ahmm*) - i played around with all that jitter stuff for pen pressure. AMAZING. anyways - anybody got any quick/effective ways to digitally ink stuff? so far, my best move is adjusting levels after i scan my pencils.. that's about it.

as for life, it's good.. i'm back in this cycle of death where i stay up late, wake up late, and miss out on doing lots of little important things.. and feel like i'm not progressing as a human soul... but then my will meter keeps building up and up, until all my will-fluid howls and blasts out of my veins, and i'm able to ride this wave of gushing will for a splurge of time. being so obsessed with free time, now that it's constantly sucked up by work motivates me to do what i want to do, but if i sit still for too long, my eye-lids get heavy, and the only thing i want to do, is just help them tuck my eyes back into their sockets, and have a deep... deep... nap.
