Well, I have a new journal, but no new art yet. My projects have been consisting of working on these Nerf guns and getting them painted and whatnot. Sadly, our deck is covered in broken glass and it's very cold out right now and so I haven't been able to do any new painting in the past month or so. Guess I'll have to wait until the snow and wind are gone before I can start up again. I managed to get one mostly done, but I gave it back before I took a decent picture of it. I have another Maverick to do though, so there will be pictures eventually. If any of you guys have any suggestions as to what random odds and ends could be glued or otherwise attached to any of the Nerf N-Strike guns, I would greatly appreciate it, because I don't need to do that outside. Hahaha!
Anyone who lives in the same house as me (as well as one or two others) know that I've been pretty ecstatic lately. No idea why that might be, but I think it might be the fault of
and her wonderful sharing nature. Or maybe
and her adorableness and love. Or either of my other roommates who doesn't have a dA account. I'm not sure. No clues. Really. I do know that the two of you are amazingly fantastic. Amaztastic. Ya, that's the one.
I've been missing my island friends a lot lately too, though. All of them. Every single one. My heart breaks that I don't get to see you all as much as I would really like to. My Christmas this year is going to be expensive in travel costs but if I plan it right, I should be able to see everyone for at least five minutes.
Ok, now onto sharing for this edition of randomness that comes from Step's brain. I adore these two bands. Ludo (who, if you go look at the gallery for
, you can see some awesome fan art of) is amazing. I saw them in Seattle in October and they were every bit as good live as they were to listen to regularly. No... better. So energetic. In any case, everyone needs to hear this song because it's the most freakin' adorable song on the face of the planet. www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvHeYa…
The other band was one of the openners for the Ludo show. They're very, very, very awesome and I want everyone to understand how wonderful they are because I want to help them build their fanbase. They're called Tommy & the High Pilots and they are very nice guys. I had the chance to meet Tommy and the drummer, Matt (who also drums for Ludo) at the show a nd they were super sweethearts. www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9CplY…
I love their music and would have loved to see them live again, but I was sick that day and couldn't drive to Seattle again.
