Status Update 2016.6.5

IMG_20160605_162902

It’s been a time since I said or shared anything about myself. While I would say it’s because nothing is happening, something is always happening. I just seem to have lost the ability to care to share what is inside my head as I used to. An odd circumstance I’ve always been meaning to change be looking through my headspace and clearly noting what is there upon this blog. Now is good a time as any. For a bit, because priorities, I guess. Continue reading

40 Days & 40 Nights – Version 2.0

I’m jumping on the Lent wagon again. This time I’m not giving up on one thing at a time, but going cold turkey: everything is going to be dropped. Tired of seeing a shade of myself with just a single piece of me missing. Want to see myself as an entirely different person, without all the vices holding me down (aka giving modest yet short comfort). Plus it’s much easier to pick up a whole new routine than ween slowly into it, because the shock will force the change, and keep it stronger in mind. Or at least that’s the belief me and my roommate have been having for awhile. Better to act a thought than let it lie, you know?

Where I’m at is rather unsteady, but I want to actually be doing something with myself, and bring focus into where I am and going. There’s a factor of falling back into depression despite the medication I’m on (yes, that is a thing now), but let’s pretend it isn’t here for now while I explain how this will work. Prior poss had me talk about how the last Lent challenge went, then talking about what I would be taking on next. Instead, I will now just note when deviations from my Lent occurs during a period, perhaps giving a background to the how and why. To remind everyone of how much of a fool I am, here is everything I’ve given up for a time in the past… Continue reading

Fur Squared 2014 – In Summary

I went to a Furry convention. There’s really no need to beat around the bush, because I honestly don’t think it’s that big of a deal. I went into the den of the great evil! The big, bad, fursuited wolves! And found it to be no different than any other fandom, though I find preference to this than those who enjoy golfing, cars, and other conventions that happen around such mundane topics. I’m no Furry or even a Brony (much as my roommate will say otherwise, dammit, just stop), but I have enough geekdom/fandom/memes/etc. within me to understand that labels are bullshit. This Furry convention I went to is no different than any other convention I would otherwise enjoy.

OH!!! There’s a bunch of sexiness with animals going on! Sorry, not biting the bait of one “perversion” for another. Anime Central has its own bouts with sexiness, my favorite being the call outs of yaoi being sold, and fanart of the shirtless dwarves from the film adaptations of The Hobbit. If you look long enough you find perversion in anything, and while Furry DOES have it, it’s just a portion of the fandom. Anthropomorphic appreciation. That’s Furry fandom in a nutshell (to me at least), and if you enjoy fucking vampires you’re a fan as well, because they are undead bestial creatures. Cartoon animals! Almost everything in Dungeons & Dragons! There’s aspects of anthro in every fandom you enjoy, so Furry haters? Get over yourselves already! Continue reading

Pwning Life: POSITIVE JACOB!

I am not positive and have not been a positive person for some years now. That I’ve had a better attitude these last several months means nothing because the urge to stab sharp shards in my neck still happens. In other words, don’t let the title of this blog fool you. Rather, speaks of an ideally positive Jacob without the annoyance of reality holding him down. More on that in a moment, because let’s talk backstory.

My roommate has attempted to become a mental assist life some months before I had my actual turnaround, to give an ear and guidance under the rule I give some of my own in turn. Uncertain how much use I’ve actually been to him, but the work has actually been great for me. We’ve fallen behind a tad on the things we started up in those beginning weeks, but those starting weeks were damn good. Continue reading

Things Are Happening Places: Chiptunes = WIN – Volume 3

Chiptunes = Win Vol 3 Promo Aug 2014

Chiptunes = WIN is at it again. Continuing to bring you the best of Chiptune in vast quantities of awesome with Volume 3. Mmmm hmmm! Makes me wish I still had use of my computer so I could listen in at leisure. MMMM HMMM!!! But enough sulking, because this is time for celebration. Volume 3 is dropping tomorrow, and it’s a damn good deal to jump in to appreciate the efforts of the fine artists in the compilation. Come with me and hype over the info already released to the world, then get the album the next day!…I’ll pass on that for now. Moneys and means of play stop me for now, but certainly can’t stop me from being excited. EXCITED, you hear!? But really, damn glad to know ChipWIN is still going strong. May it’s rainbow continue to shine for awhile. Continue reading

Things Are Happening Places: Geek.Kon 2014

Geek Kon 2014 Promo

Geek.Kon is happening again. I made my case for this convention last year. I don’t think I need to explain the awesomeness to you again, do I? Good! Now if you haven’t registered already, you best do so soon. Volunteer if you feel inclined. The convention is starting up next month, and making plans of what to do, who to see, and what to wear are very important when going to a convention. August 22-24 are the days to plan for…make this next con rocking!

Things Are Happening Places: Clipstream XV

Clipstream XV Promo

Those who know me are aware of my unhealthy obsession with old school video games and the genre of music that utilizes the sound chips of them: Chiptune. It’s honestly a mess of a genre, which can be seen from research done by an outsider. And in truth, I know next to nothing about it either. I have my favorites whom I connect with, who direct me to others over time, but I couldn’t tell you a damn thing about “the scene” in regard to the major players or what’s happening. So there’s plenty of shame to be had from this supposed fan of chiptune. I keep going by doing the only thing I know that feels right: dancing to the music that feels good to me. Should be enough…right? Continue reading
