Pencil and Paper - Artmaking for Real Men

Digital art is for pansies, back in the day, people didn't even HAVE Adobe Illustrator and they drew all their art by THEMSELVES. None of this Wacom tablet nonsense. Lettering using a computer is different, because everybody does that.

Intellectual Essay, Welcome to the NHK

I wrote a new essay on Welcome to the NHK on my home blog. It's an essay on a long out of print book called Welcome to the NHK, which is about hikikomori and their tragic lifestyle. I decided to do an essay exploring Satou's concept of God as villain merely believed in to be hated, which leads to him becoming his own God in a late modernity and consumerist/materialist Japan. I hope I explained my points well enough.

My Star Trek (2009) Vlog Review



My first Nerdfighters response to one of Hank's videos, but somebody only gave me ONE STAR as a rating. TT____TT



Man, the internet can be so cruel. But I believe my view on the Star Trek movie is valid, I liked the movie a lot and I haven't seen many opinions of the movie as Vlogs yet, but my one star rating could have been a result of people who hated the movie. I don't really know.



Anyway, go see it as soon as you can. It… Continue

Callum Park (and I'll never learn to drive in that place... AGAAAAAAIN.... OH NOOOO!)

So here's the epic tale of my Escape from Callum Park, not as exciting as Jurassic Park until you discover that Callum Park is partly an abandoned mental hospital. My Dad being chirpy about finding places to drive naturally insisted we check the place out for a Learner Driver Lesson, and at first it went ok. Sure, it was really creepy seeing the old barred up dilapidated buildings that haven't seen a human soul in years, especially when I was trying to learn to drive. Anyway, so I hit a… Continue

I try out GTA: Chinatown Wars in a joyride



Ok, so this is my first handycam video blog, in which I attempt to play Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. In my opinion GTA games don't make you a horrible person, they help you avoid becoming a horrible person. They're an outlet for the savagery of man. From the dawn of video gaming, man play game to avoid trashing his living room in frustration and dissatisfaction with modern life, and thus he hunts down video games to bring back to his cave. Since feminism… Continue
