okay, let's see if crossposting's set up good.

i'm having trouble figuring out how i even want to do this. make a bunch of accounts to back things up on here, i guess? also, do i want to export sir_stache to this account, or get a fresh new start? SO MANY DECISIONS. i'm sort of thinking i might as well get a fresh start, but i have emotional attachments. and doesn't that spam you guys' friend pages?

i like dreamwidth though! it's cozy, and it's just samey enough for switching over to not feel too freaky. once i set things up a little more (icons, layout, etc) i'll feel more at home, but lately i haven't really had the time.

anyway in non-drama news, i have gone from rushing around over christmas to rushing around preparing for guests. i'd like to say i've been a total cleaning machine, but i've been recovering from a bad back lately, so it's more like i'm partly a cleaning machine and then i gotta recline for a while to ease discomfort. but i'm getting there! tonight i plan on finishing up tidying and putting cute christmas decorations in my room, and tomorrow i'm going to do a bunch of laundry and obsessively groom myself and finish doing whatever's left. once everyone's here i'm probably going to be mostly gone, aaaaaaaand then i'll be back in school. so i'm fairly booked, but i enjoy it. i was gonna draw up some christmas gifts for people, but as you may have guessed, those are probably gonna be late...!

there's... a lot i need to catch up on with you guys. i went to europe and i haven't even really talked about it with anyone. i've gotten so used to posting little quick lines of microblogging that it hardly even occurs to me to actually sit down and document things. twitter and tumblr are convenient, but you can't really go back and look at things like you can with a blog, and i really want to get back into not only doing that, but also just being more social in general. i used to really put myself out there and got somewhat well-known in some circles, and i miss having that. i've gotten so RECLUSIVE. i don't really have the time/patience to dedicate to these things like i used to, but i do plan on reaching out a little more, especially artwise.

aaaaanyway i really need to get back to cleaning, i've been taking way too long of a break. i'll talk to you soon, lj/dw.

oh, so THIS is what's going on with lj.

this (and all the things it links) makes a lot of really compelling reasons for moving to dreamwidth, and honestly, that's probably where i'm going to slowly migrate. i just wish that EVERYONE was going there, including all the comms and stuff, because as nice as DW is, it's still pretty quiet and has a bit of a different atmosphere.

but really, lj is just being so creepy right now, and there's something about this round of WE'RE GOING TO DREAMWIDTH threats that feels more certain (maybe because more of my friends are doing it, lmao). my plan is just to back up everything i had on this site, and i guess just use the crosspost feature on dreamwidth until either lj dies completely or everyone reluctantly moves back? I DON'T KNOW

i just don't wanna drift from anyone. for all the opportunities the internet gives you to keep in touch with people, sometimes i can find it oddly just as hard to as real life. when people start spreading out to different sites, it's like when your friend moves away--you might try and keep up for a while, but the frequency of that just slowly decreases until you've officially Lost Touch. i don't want that to happen!

god why am i awake ALSO MERRY CHRISTMAS i had a great one, and to top it off i get to see my gf and my brother/his gf in a couple of days! WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE IN OUR HOUSE i'm excited

(also i turned on custom comment layouts to save people some eye strain here)
backupdump001: (kyle thinking)
IS EVERYONE LEAVING LJ OR SOMETHING

everyone keeps posting their dreamwidths.... uhhhh

mine is absolutecrock?????

and i'll do all of yours!
backupdump001: (for god's sake)
i wish i could inject something into my brain that made me know all the math ever so i can actually function when i'm trying to do it rather than flop around uselessly and get tired after 30 minutes
backupdump001: (miso)
i've been really tired lately and it's hard to think about anything other than school. but if i can just survive one more week, then i'll be on break!

i'd like to do a big art dump of everything i've done since i last posted to lj, but that'll take time, and i'm about to go to bed. so in the meantime, here's that 2011 art summary meme everyone does around this time!

lotsa images )

i think i did pretty okay this year, and i can tell that i'm better than i was when the year started. i'm DEEEEEEFINITELY better than i was in 2010, so that's encouraging! i'm looking forward to improving even more in 2012.

the art summary from 2010, for comparison
backupdump001: (damn)
lj i miss youuuuuuuuuuuu

lj why are you deeeeeaaaaaaaadddddddddddd

i wish i had the same motivation i used to have to post here but it's just like ughhhgh what's the use

i feel like a lot of people are the same way and it's sort of become a vicious cycle now. and that sucks, because twitter and tumblr (and google+) just aren't the same when it comes to actually getting to know people, and i really miss that sort of community.

i think i've also forgotten how to write lj posts uhhhhh how do i share things in not-microblogging ways again????

ART

hey guys, if you watched this journal for art then you should probably watch my art tumblr instead!

http://erendraws.tumblr.com/

i basically never update this lj with art anymore (or at all...) so that is a much better way to keep up.

[livejournal.com profile] supercharitygo


i just wanted to remind you guys that this is still plugging along. i think most people are either done with finals or are about to be, so if you could consider doing some commissions or throwing in a couple bucks then that would be great! if you can't do either, please at least spread the word.

i am tired of this stuff sitting in my main art folder and wanna get it all sorted, so

art [13] )

i'm on summer break now, so i finally have more time to draw what i want.
backupdump001: (kyle)
[livejournal.com profile] supercharitygo started.

once this round is over, i'm going to offer ownership to someone else. if nobody responds, i'm just going to shut it down.

it's just a mixture of the fact that i'm busier/not as passionate, and just that it's really discouraging to see how it seems to get gradually less attention every round, despite my efforts. but even if it started booming with popularity, i think i'd want to give it to someone else.
backupdump001: (CAN DO)
QUICK TUMBLR NOTE

http://dumbledoresballs.tumblr.com/ <-- i turned this into my main/reblogging one
http://adumbassdraws.tumblr.com/ <-- and this is now my art one!

(and as some other reminders, how's your father is for me and mattie's games, and super charity go is just where i'll post scg updates but will not actually move it off of lj)

i barely post on lj anymore, so it's best to follow me there (and twitter). lj is kind of just turning into a place for me to crosspost art, make rare locked stuff, and look at what my friends write. aside from that, i've been sort of migrating away. i still check up! but, uh, yeah.

ok read this


due to the catastrophe in japan, i'm considering starting super charity go a bit early this year, but am not sure if there'd be a ton of point to that since scg starts in a couple weeks anyway? but aside from that-- i'll still let people donate to whatever charity they want, BUT i want to strongly encourage people donate to japan, and libya, and egypt-- all the places that have been going through hell lately. thus, i need to gather some donation options for people, specifically for those causes.

SO PLEASE, spam me with charity links. all of them. even the ones you think i'll know.
backupdump001: (adachi)
firstly: if you guys could start calling me "eren" instead of "dox" then that would be cool! i'm still getting used to it, but i think it'll be for the better.

secondly: man, another unproductive month for art. kind of a mix of not feeling like it, and then being too busy when i DO feel like it.

art [11?] )

cool news: [livejournal.com profile] supercharitygo now has a tumblr! it won't move there or anything, but it will get updates there so as to give it another venue to hopefully(???) attract more people. the lj community itself also underwent a makeover to get rid of that lame default layout. i'm thinking i'll tweak the icons/profile a bit to make it more matchy. ALSO, i made the profile more concise so it's less intimidating for newcomers. ALSO ALSO, people can now do smut because nobody actually cared about that rule (i was just worried about like real people posting their webcam tits or whatever, and i don't know why i didn't think of just going "hey don't do that" in the first place).
backupdump001: (hmm)
ahh you know what i'm just gonna ask everywhere

i'm really bored of my music right now, so please help me out and give me some song recs! (would greatly prefer downloadable links rather than youtube vids or whatever, if it's not a hassle.)

i'm not gonna be too picky about genres, but i will say that musicals, metal, and slow/quiet songs are generally not big hitters with me. i do go for rap/hip-hop, pop, indie/classic rock, mashups, and certain types of... electronica, i guess, i'm a bit bad with techno-y genres (but think "daft punk," "naked ape," "chromeo" if that counts, this though that has a lot of elements but you know). AGAIN THOUGH, i'm not gonna be real picky if it's not one of those.

help me out here
backupdump001: (Default)
OH YEAH

"How's Your Father? Games"

me and [livejournal.com profile] tigerboat started a game-making tumblr! we're gonna use it to dump concept art/ideas/etc for the games we come up with (either together or by ourselves). we talk about making video games a lot, and it's really exciting to have a blog for it. you should check it out! (most of the art i put in there won't be reposted anywhere else, omg. and mattie's contributing art too, obviously.)

you may have noticed i go by "eren" over there rather than "dox." i'm flip-flopping on this a LOT lol because i've used dox since i was like 14 and have gotten attached--which i know may be a bit silly--but at the same time, i'm starting to connect with eren more and am kind of feeling... embarrassed? i guess? with using an internet name? i keep going "but nuhhhh" at the thought of switching (and i'm sure the people who've known me for ages are going oh my god are they switching again), but there is a growing possibility that i will.

haha i didn't realize i kinda missed lj until i started writing this. sorry i've been so bad at updating this thing, guyyys

so how 'bout dat blizzard

art [8] )

aside from a few other sketches that are crappy and i don't wanna show, that's about it. january was an exceptionally bad month for art.
backupdump001: (Default)
i feel like lj is dying

what're everyone's tumblrs and twitters?
backupdump001: (CAN DO)
oh i guess i'll post resolutions too

Read more... )

i wrote a big rant because i was feeling "hmph" after my sister acted like a negative nancy all new year's ("i don't care about new year's at all it's just another day this is so pointless!!!" she's like that with basically everything), but decided against posting it. however, i still want to make this clear: if there is one quality i cannot stand, it's cynicism. please do not be cynical. it's not the same as being a skeptic--a dose of skepticism is healthy, and more people could stand to take things with a grain of salt and form their own opinions. but i grew up around cynicism, not just from my sister, and not once did i see the benefits.
(to be fair, i guess, my new year's party(?) was depressing in general.)


on a nicer note, this is SO COOL and makes me think of futurama
backupdump001: (oops)
haha i hate myself for doing this instead of sleeping

art summary of 2010 )

i think i improved a lot this year!

either way, it's at http://dumbledoresballs.tumblr.com/
