"Crash And Burn" by Savage Garden

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can't take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can't face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

'Cause there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breath again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

I just don't anymore.

Enter this contest. Even if you aren't interested in seeing Gorillaz live, each person I refer gets me another entry. Which means my chances of winning will be higher than yours, anyway. Just be sure and enter using that link only, mmkay?



ttly wanting to draw the new starters' final evolutions as Chinese warlords. IT WOULD TOTALLY FREAKING WORK. And I don't care if somebody else steals this idea; chances are they can pull it off better than me. XD unfunfunf gijinka

....Be expecting to see poopy little sketches of this idea in the sketchblog. I already have a little Jarooda doodle and he's lookin kinda cool

Con report ahoy!

Ok, I was waiting to do this 'till I could get everything uploaded to my photo album! Here it is:


And I'll do a brief recount of how the con went (or as much as I can remember) before I get on to the SWAG. You know how much I love showing off my swaggityswags.

For one, I actually got decent photos of my costumes this time, yayays. For another, since I was Pokemon all weekend, I got recognized all weekend and LOTS of pictures! :D I'll start trolling forums for myself here soon since I have my own pictures to provide now.

Uhrr... Thursday went pretty smoothly. Riding with Neil and William wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, they were actually pretty chill. When I think about it I dunno why I expected anything different. We just cruised on up to ATL with dork music blasting the whole way, but that's anyone's average convention road trip. Arrived kinda late, and was worried I wouldn't be able to buy my badge, but I got there right before it closed and met up with L right after. Actually, when I got my badge, I turned around and there she was. XD The rest was hanging out and getting luggage up to the room. Yay con hotel room! No long walks to and from the room to drop stuff off/take breaks!

Friday was awesomely awesome. I was casual!Shinx on a whim, and although I don't think the costume was quite cohesive enough for my tastes, people still liked it and I still got recognized a lot. I woke up at like 6am ready to seize the day, but we didn't leave the room until 10. I had a lot of time to myself to be quiet and do nothing XD BUT I LIVED. I was in my costume before anybody woke up D: But once we got going it was awesomesauce. I hung out with L and her buddies, and they were all Soul Eater, and SO IN-CHARACTER, HAHA. I found Whit and Shan around the same time I lost them, so I cruised around on my own for a little while. Bought WAY too much in the Dealer Room at Wizzywig my favorite con store D': and also in the AA. Le sigh. I found a Hetalia photoshoot which Dex insisted I take pictures of. There, I found a Russia with awesome Russia-colored earrings and, when I complimented them, she showed me a tongue-ring with the soviet symbol thingy on it. MY, MY!! After that, a little more pooping around, and then I happened to be with Lira, Atrian and Phe-chan when they went to dinner, so I got to go along as well! We went to this AMAZING Japanese restaurant Lira goes to every year. It was the most authentic Japanese food I've ever had, mmmmm. We all ordered different things, and when it all came out we shared everything. I totally gorged myself and STILL crave food from that night. I GOT TO EAT FRIED MOCHI. IT WAS FREAKING DELICIOUS. But I think dinner was the high point of Friday, deffo. I resolved to spend the rest of the evening watching classic anime but went back to the room instead and hung out with my hotel-buddies, dorking about One Piece and Pokemon and everything else. So nice~! x3

Saturday started out with a bang. I was mostly in costume, once again, before the rest of my cohorts were awake. I left before everyone was up because I wanted to get to the BJD marketplace thing. There I saw sooo many pretty dorries! And I got to introduce my Mizukins to Whit. I also got him a Volks shirt at a discounted price, heckyes. It even matches the pants I got him. But right after that was the Pokemon photoshoot! I felt awkward and out of place because I've only ever done One Piece photoshoots before (isn't that SAD??) but once things picked up it was nice! People asked for my picture and complimented my costume and I kept hearing "omg Spinda! :D" The only thing I'm disappointed about is that, in the big group picture, I'm blocked by Jigglypuff GRRRR. X( Right after the shoot I notice I have texts from Nirs! She's at the con! So I go to meet her! But I have a headache. :C My jaw was hurting a lot on that day but I didn't let it keep me from having fun. :D And Nirs had enough painkillers to keep it at bay. We got to run around and have fun for a little while before the One Piece photoshoot, where she was Bon-chan, Shan was Luffy, and Whit and I were happy to not be in the photoshoot for once this year and just take pictures. XD While I was taking a break and eating lunch after, I met Nirsy's friend Amber, who is awesome and totally related to Crispin Whytehead. :| The evening wound down slowly with more flittering around before dinner at Jock & Jill's with Whit, Shan, Nirs and Amber, then it got sort of confusing. :C Whit and Shan were going to the rave, and Nirs and Amber were going to Yaoi After Dark. I wanted to hang out with everyone so I didn't know what to do. DX So, since I was too tired to dance, I stood in line with them for YAD. Me and Nirs jammed on her ipoop while waiting to be let in. Shortly after, I got a text from Whit saying they were leaving. I wanted to see them one more time so I scrammed. Nirs was close behind because of the ridiculously long yaoi paddle line. XDD So we all got to talk for a little while :'D It was nice to hang out again, but I feel like it just wasn't long enough. LE SIGH. Had some trouble getting Nirs home because she left her stuff in my hotel room and I didn't have a roomkey when her ride came :I;; That sucked. But once I was alone again, I made a small run of the con looking for crap to do without thinking of checking the panels, derp. So I came back pretty much immediately, sat in my room and talked to Dex on the phone. LOL YAY.

Sunday, as low-key as it was, was AMAZINGLY FUN. I resolved to spend the whole day in the AA, so once I got my and my two passengers' stuff loaded into my car, I went back and did just that. Got a biscuit and donut for breakfast from Lira's booth heckyeah thanks Atrian and Phe-chan for feeding me ;0; while showing Lira and Phe-chan all the awesome Pokemon cosplays I saw. Then I went and bugged Mad for commissions and tips on being a COMEECK ARTEEST. She was so damn fun to hang out with. And I found out she loves One Piece and Double Fine just like I do homaigawd. I hope, by some miracle of the interbutts, that I can actually be friends with her. I'm stalking her on DA at the very least. >>;; But after that I sort of got on a roll, going around the AA. Acted interested in any tables that had comics and got into convos with the artists. The people from Cliffside Comics gave me advice, too, and critiqued some of my sketches I had on me. They only had good things to say :D
I FINALLY found Blix's table and told her about how I'd been a fan of Toilet Genie since I found her table the year before, and she really appreciated hearing from a fan. I also got a print from her to support my favorite comic. :D Then I found someone who ACTUALLY works in the gaming industry, and he gave me a lot of really good advice about what it takes to get into my field of choice; game character design. Talking to him was the highlight of my Sunday, I think. Heck, that entire day was a highlight. It really got a fire under my bum as far as arting goes. I really -am- going to start a comic soon, and I'll definitely talk about it here once it gets started. I'm really excited!! Um.... other than that, the weird obscure costumes you see on Sunday are some of my favorites. Someone was dressed as Homsar. Heck yes. And the drive home was just as smooth; I DID get to stop by a QuikTrip and get my orgasmic slushie quota filled. Listened to the music Nirs burned for me on the way back and all was well. :D

AND THAT WAS MY AWA. Gosh, I don't think I ever go that in-depth for my cons anymore. I DID GOOD!


lalalalala derderderp

I just have this to say before I leave for AWA:


Oh and this:


It's almost enough to convince me to hop on the rave. ....Then I think about the lines. I'll be raving in an obscure hallway with my friends kthx B:

And oh my god I'm actually gonna hit the QuikTrip this time. I've already got the address programmed into my GPS. Fuck yes. Slushie heaven here we come.

Edit: okfine I'll tell you my costumes. Shinx, Quagsire, and a new Pokemon costume I've only told a couple people about. I'm hoping to wear it at the Pokemon photoshoot on Saturday. :D~

Oh geez, also, I couldn't find my shirt for Shinx so I'm doing a casual version. I'm actually pretty pumped about it.

Some dealie from my facebook

It's that time again

Less hype but I'm still gonna be there. Gimme a shout if you'll be groovin' with me at AWA, yo. And uh, especially if you have a room I can crash in, eh? More people, less to pay, eh? And if I'm lucky I get to drag Dexter's ass around the con too, which is another good body to make hotel fees less to worry about. Howzat sound? Gimme a hollar.


God deleting all those icons just for 3 new ones was _hard_. .....But so totally worth it D8 2D's expressions in the On Melancholy Hill video are just PRICELESS. Ohgod I wanna hug him. When I first got into Gorillaz (which was, of course, their first video, Clint Eastwood. Who could ever forget those days?) 2D was my favorite band member because blue hair rule. Now he's still got that spot because he's so... so... ohgod... HIM. I don't really care if he's him because of substance abuse either, why does that make it even more endearing!? I don't know!! XD

But at least I also got access to some of the inactive ones LJ put on hold instead of some icons that I pretty much never use at all. ...Which unfortunately some of those were covered in that icon meme I did. WOOPS. Oh well I have no regrets when I look at that derpy face. <3

No, I swear to god, babbling is healthy. It exfoliates the skin. You will literally glow after a bout of babbling, I guarantee. It's how I keep my boyishness!
