Just posting a journal about things I've been thinking about lately. Probably just going to be me rambling on for a few paragraphs but most of the people I consider my friends I met on Deviant Art so where else would I ramble?
Everyone who's not playing The Elder Scrolls Online needs to start right now. I played it for almost two months straight without it getting old and only barely scratching the surface of everything the game has to offer. Admittedly I haven't played in a couple of weeks but that's not because I got tired of it. Because of some recent injuries it just became very painful to sit in a chair for an extended period of time. As soon as I heal past this problem I am so ready to jump back into it!
My favorite manga, Naruto, is going to end soon. Just in this weeks chapter he and his friends defeated the ultimate opponent of the story. Also, all of the lingering questions the fans have had over the years have been answered. All that's left I'm guessing is a few chapters for everyone to pat Naruto on the back and everyone to tie up a few loose ends. I'm really sad that Naruto is ending. I've read it religiously for almost a decade and I loved it so much I could have read it happily for another decade. Maybe I'm wrong though. Maybe Naruto could do what Bleach did with this Vandereich arch which is time skip ahead a year or so and then have super powered villains appear out of nowhere to cause pain and suffering for our beloved heroes.
Since we are on the topic of Bleach I really need to talk about this recent Vanderreich story. It's been brutal!! In just this arc alone about a 1/3 of the characters in Bleach have been killed! That's a huge and shocking body count. It's like Kubo decided, "well the manga's almost over so now I can kill beloved characters indiscriminately because I don't need them anymore, that'll be an easy way to show off how powerful the new bad guys are!" For the entire run of the manga not a single good guy ever got killed but now their dying left and right! Speaking of the Vanderreich they've definitely had their share of good, stupid and vague powers haven't they? I like Pepe's power. For those who don't know he has the power to make anyone fall psychotically in love with him. So in love with him that they're willing to kill their own friends to please him. I've actually been workings on an OC of my own that had basically the same power. I guess I'll need to scrap him now or people will think I'm just ripping Pepe off. Too bad though, that was going to be an interesting Naruto fanfiction. That bad guy who had "the power of imagination" was a bit silly. His powers were so terribly undefined that I kind of felt his battle with Kenpachi a little hard to follow to be perfectly honest. At least it showed off just how more powerful Kenpachi Zaraki had become since his brutal, and fatal, training with captain Unohana. I think the Quincey who has the power to turn both the living and the dead into his obedient zombie slaves is interesting. It's very similar to the curry zombies I love so much. Though I do think its odd and possibly racially insensitive that everyone he turns into a slave skin turns brown but I'm going to believe that that is just a coincidence. Still though, would it have been so hard to make their skin turn blue or orange instead?
I'm getting ready to do a new round of artist commissions. What would y'all like to see? Another Konoha's Lot vampire? Another Curry zombie, or something new like one of those Bleach zombies? Would it be self indulgent of me to commission pictures of my Shih Tzu beating up characters from popular fighting game franchises? I had one person mention interest in a male Konohas Lot vampire being drawn; would anyone else like one?
I've been really enjoying the Simpsons marathon on Fxx. I haven't really watched the Simpsons for years. Not because I'm one of those people who think the quality has gone down but just because I just kind of fell out of the habit. Also I kind of switched over to Family Guy. But because of this marathon I've been reminded of how much I love this show and I've seen episodes I haven't seen in decades! NOTHING CAN STOP THE SIMPSONS! HAVE NO FEAR THEY HAVE STORIES FOR YEARS!
Well that's everything I can think of to talk about right now. I hope y'all will read and respond.
