Shameless Plugs!

[font=helvetica]Everyone has a hobby. Some people even have hobbies with tangible results! Show us what you're working on!

Maybe you're trying to blog every day in 2010. (Show us your blog!) Maybe you fancy yourself a photographer. (Show us your flickr stream!) Maybe you knit scarves modelled after Lovecraftian monsters. (Show us your etsy!) Maybe you're exercising every day. (Show us your progress!)

Maybe you designed your mom's book club's website! Maybe you're keeping track of every time Obama uses the word "terrorism" in an official context! Maybe you're trying to collect all the ruby trophies on theOtaku.com!

It doesn't matter what you do. This is a place for you to show off your projects.

As an example (just for you!) I uploaded a few recent photos and put them up on a blog.

I'm working on a spoof story about me and my friend. It also drags in other people we know, and takes place in the world of POKEYMANZ. But I'm not so keen on showing it...:animeswea

My other hobby? I want to at least have memorized the entire numerical list of the first 151 Pokemon. Because I'm a nerd.

EDIT: Almost forgot! I plan to finish that Mr. Maul drawing some time this year... I WILL be posting that when I'm done.

Liking pokemon is probably the least nerdy thing you could do. =p

Still, the point of this is to show stuff off, not just reference it. Can we at least get an in-progress on the Mr. Maul drawing? Or an excerpt from your fanfic?

Come on! It'll be fun.[/font]

It's an inside joke, sort of. The title of the fanfic is ZOMG POKEYMANZ *whatever #chapter*. And fine. But not the Mr. Maul pic. That's a surprise for taperson! [B]Teensy weensy language warning.[/B]

[QUOTE= Chibi's crap fanfic]Skippy's Journal Entry 1

So today I started my POKEYMANZ journey! My best friend Dippy and I set out to Proffesor Oak's lab! Of course, that wasn't so hard seeing as the lab is about 5 yards away from our houses. But our visit to the Proffesor did not go as planned.

We got to the lab and entered with high hopes for ourselves. But something was wrong. The lights were all out. Apparently, the electricity had been cut. This of course brought up the question of how the hell we were able to get past the electric sliding doors at the entrance, but this is the world of POKEYMANZ and we don't pay attention to plotholes we have no explanation for. Aaanywaaay... We took out our flashlights from our travel bags and turned them on. We could now see, though we wished we couldn't. There was a lot of blood and dead scientists all over the place. Dippy whispered, "The Bellsprouts were here..." At this point I turned to run screaming from this hell hole, as would have been appropriate. But Dippy grabbed the back of my squirtleneck sweater and dragged me deeper into the lab. [/QUOTE]

The first chapter is actually a few paragraphs more, but I present to you this tiny chunk. Skippy= Me. My BESTEST BUDDY EVER= Dippy.

[font=trebuchet ms] My friends and I sometimes play trivia. When we were in high school our team name was Editors-in-Chief, because we were all on newspaper together, but now we use Meow Zedong, because I doodled him one day in gov class. Except he has no resemblance to a Chinese man, he's just a cat.

[font=lucida fax]I found out drawing in Live messenger (MSN) is actually so cool and I laugh way too loud over stuff I make there.

And I made the comic cover of my sister's graduation project in it![/font]

That was nice, taperson! You're pretty good with that piano. Out of curiosity, what is the song? I don't recognize it.

As for myself, I guess a hobby I have that I can show off is photography. I'm not that deep into it, just started on it when I went to Japan (had a photography class). Now I have about 10 GB worth of photos from Japan on my computer. lol
Thing is, it's been kinda hard for me to be as exuberant about it after getting back. I've started to renew an interest lately though.

Anyway, some actual photos! Or at least links to them:

Well I guess I am extra shameless since it is plugged by a large banner in my signature but I really enjoy writing on various topics and I'm fairly dedicated to my blog. Click on the banner below for it.

Here's some art crap.....

The first one is a Van Gogh assignment I did in art class using oil pastels...
The second is some junk with a scary, obese kitty...
The third and last are some random Pokemon doodles with a small, angry looking guy with a triangle in his head...

But I know (at least some) webcams record images while acting as "mirrors." So if you took the picture with one, it would explain why the image was reversed.[/size][/font]

Huh. Well, I didn't do that. The picture I used as a reference must have been flipped, because that tree was on the right side when it was handed to me. Oh well.

[COLOR="RoyalBlue"][SIZE="1"]What up, errbuddy?

So this is my first official recording of this, so it sucks, & I messed up a lot because I got nervous (how do you even get nervous to record something? That's jank, man).

[SIZE="1"]I write music. Right now I'm trying to get work done for my band, [U][URL="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ghost-Shirt-Society/184591799551"]Ghost Shirt Society[/URL][/U]. We know a lot of covers and I have some original songs ready, it's just hard to figure out exactly what we should sound like. It's mostly just acoustic guitar and voice.

Here's a video of us playing "The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot" by Brand New. I'm in the TGS shirt.

[FONT="Times New Roman"]I've been working on remixes, and DJ'ing out here in the Miami area, and just jamming with my friends on the drums and bass but that's the boring stuff; right now I've been working on a story that's been kind of just sitting there in the back of my mind, on a whm I decided to start it up again and rewrote it with a heavier scifi motif to it. You guys can read what I've written so far by clicking on the link in my signature.

(As of this post I'm working on chapters five & six)[/FONT]

I'd never shamelessly plug the two Pokemon Let's Plays that I've done/ working on over on the Wrestlecrap forums.



Because that would be completley against what I'm like. Ah screw it.

[color=#4B0082]I make fansubs and I have an odd love/hate relationship with the job of typesetting. It can be fun, it can be agonizing, and it can even be both at once. Here's a screen shot of some complex typesetting that I recently did for Shugo Chara! Party! ep25.
