I think that livejournal is one of those things that i've organically moved away from over time. Not really sure when it happened or why, but this seems to be the case.
Maybe my life has reached a point where i no longer feel the need to record its events in a long format. Maybe i just got lazy. Maybe i spent so much time drawing pictures that i forgot how to write words. hmmm.

I suppose i'll be checking in from time to time, but if anyone happens to stumble upon this, i can be found blogging or booking the face.

I wish there was a way to consolidate a presence on the internet; facebook is good for social networking/finding people i haven't talked to in 10 years and then continuing to not talk to them/telling the internet when i'm hungry or have a headache, and, while i CAN post pictures there as well, there's something about the contained nature of an art blog that i like. at the same time, there doesn't seem to be much room for ranting about my life on an art blog... except in picture form, i guess. Livejournal's a good place for ranting but without a paid account it's crap for posting images. Oh dang, and then there's Flickr... it's too many places. it's like i've split my personality into pieces in cyberspace!
BAH, The Internet! BAH to you. You are simultaneously divisive and globally unifying and i both hate and love you.

My life is good. Hope yours is too :)

Comicon was hectic and good and now it is over!
Dove back into the work week with necessary vigor.
Posting pictures... later (not too many to post, really).
There are weird smells wafting into my room but they're not too bad.
Man, i haven't updated this in forever. If i checked my last LJ post it'd probably say the same thing :) odds are not much of note has happened since then. pretty smooth sailing, really.

iPod success is mine!
Thanks to Ryan and his super-mad skills, my new pod Hobbes is being pumped full of music as we speak! My old ipod, seemingly in fits of jealousy, has actually been freezing up sporadically for the first time in the several years i've been using it. i'd been trying to convince myself not to feel bad about buying a new ipod when i had one that was working perfectly, but now i'm feeling guilty for making it feel bad?
i dunno. the point is..
... shiny orange ipod!

Actually reading my own livejournal really doesn't provide an accurate cross-section of my life. I don't suppose it matters, as most livejournals are really a place to complain about stuff, or mention good movies people have seen, etc. I just felt like making a note of it.
in the spirit of that, here's a list of things that i do that i don't mention here much:
-i'm knitting a scarf right now from this hand-spun yarn (the best sort of yarn) i found in Silverlake
-i've been going out for coffee a lot, largely courtesy of Randeep who really likes coffee and seems to be better at finding cool coffee places than i will ever be
-i recently bought, assembled and set up a new shelf in my room for cds, which doesn't sound that great but i get really excited about aesthetically pleasing organizing :)
-Jason and i have been doing marathon viewings of Avatar: The Last Airbender, now that i've got all three seasons on DVD (beginning to end, excepting about three episodes that are nigh unwatchable)
-i'm big into retail therapy, so i buy myself random shit; a jacket that makes me look like a stylish hobo, a lambskin rug, several cool looking sketchbooks i don't need, some Beatles cds (just because i don't own any), LOADS of comics that i don't have shelf-space for (although this last one is less of a needless impulse buy than the rest) and etc.
-work's going well
-i'm working on a comic. very. very. slowly.
-i check facebook way too many times a day. that was my concern and the beginning of the venture, and now all my fears have become reality
-i'm going to be traveling a fair bit! San Francisco next weekend, Washington at the end of May, San Diego for Comicon in July, and Toronto somewhere in between. I don't go places much, so i'm excited about all of this :)
-i went to The Edison tonight, so that was fun
-i'm hanging out with Meg tomorrow! + Court's b-day party in the evening.

i'll leave the list at that. that's a better summary of the shit i'm up to, for the benefit of anyone who cares to read it. there's a part of me that thinks that someday i'll look back on this as an actual journal years down the road, and i just want to make sure me of the future acurately remembers what i've been up to.

*THROWS THINGS (and swears a lot)* [Apr. 4th, 2009|04:17 pm]

I just bought a new ipod nano. It's orange! It has twice the space of my old nano! It's super exciting!

And i can't fucking use it. Apprently it's incapable of running on anything less than iTunes 8.0, which is itself incapable of installing on my version of OSX (10.3.9).
I'm so fucking pissed at mac. my computer's NOT that old. i don't understand why they can't make their latest software updates for people like me, who haven't needed to buy a new computer because, somehow, mac actually makes a decent fucking product. i just spent $200 on a piece of hardware, the least they could do is let me run a fucking program that's available FOR FUCKING FREE.
fucking mac and their fucking compulsive upgrades.
fuck 'em.


*sigh*
So yeah, if anyone has any advice, that'd be super. I can get my hands on a copy of Leopard to install, but my computer's too old to properly run the new OS. I might have an old version of Tiger sitting around (os x 10.4.something or other) that i could install, but would that require wiping my harddrive? because i CAN backup all my files and reload them, but i'll lose photoshop, and it all doesn't seem worth it just because the folks at mac are fucking dip shits.
