So had a REALLY interesting weekend...due to all the problems at work. Seriously, my store manager should think twice about leaving me in charge of the store during midnights...especially with all the shit that went down the past three days.

Overview:

☺ Friday: Broke the water line to Frappe machine
☺ Saturday: Broke Cashless software so bad, had to reinstall it
☺ Sunday: Power went out for 5 hours/broke cashless again/BROKE THE INTERNET SO CASHLESS AND STUFF WON'T WORK ANYWAY.

Long entry is long and work related. )

So, that was my epic weekend of FAIL. I'm hoping this coming up weekend will go better and that I'll be faced with less problems.

I really should be sleeping right now, but I'm totally not tired. I'm thinking of just walking up to the bank to deposit my checks/get quarters for laundry. Because I'm not going to want to wake up early to do that and Crystal has to work tonight so she won't wanna drive/wake up too early either. Maybe I'll do that. In before I decide I'm too lazy.

My ankle is slowly getting better though!! I can sorta walk around without any of my braces! Which is a plus because usually, I have to have my "light" one on when I walk around the house. I think I'm going to buy some more work shoes/insoles today or tomorrow too, so that it can keep on this getting better trend. I really just want to walk around like a normal person again...not all gimpified and looking like I need a cane. (although an awesome pimp cane would be nice.)

So...that's about it I think...I'm just rambling now.

Peace,

gonna read some more GW fanfiction and maybe walk up to the bank psycho

Honestly.

Do it. And do it hard.

HONESTY MEME
Step 1: Post this into your LJ publicly.
Step 2: Others will reply anonymously (if they'd like) about what they really think of you.
Step 3: Cry, because this meme is so brutal, and it hurts.


Peace,

bring it psycho

Really?

So, this presumtious bastard decides to make flash games. All is well and good. He wants to sell said flash games. Again, all well and good and captialism and all that jazz. He apparently can't do his own artwork for it. Okay, so he decides to hire some artists to help him out. Everybody wins right? Artists are getting paid, the flash gamer is getting his game, and everybody's happy.

Except what? He's not paying the artists fairly? AND WRITES A FUCKING ARTICLE ON HOW TO HIRE AN ARTIST AND CHEAT THEM OUT OF PROFIT FOR SOMETHING THEY WORKED ON? Hold the fucking train here.

Anywho, read this fucking bullshit. Seriously, this makes me happy that I have no interest in selling my art and just give it away to people I care about as gifts rather than commissions. Less of a chance that I'll be burned by this kind of bullshit.

Original article: Hello. My name is Asshatery.

Stuff I'm peeved as hell about:

How to find an artist:

I recommend looking through art sites such as Deviantart for an artist which suits your taste, or any other site that has a decent art community such as Newgrounds. There’s a few reasons you want to find an artist this way. First of all, they’re cheaper. These guys aren’t used to making a lot of money for their work so they will be more appreciative of the chance even if they are being payed slightly less than what professionals are payed. Second of all, they’re better. The quality of art you can find through this method is pretty amazing, and the vast amount of artists guarantee you will find something that suits your tastes and needs. Unless you have a specific price you want to pay in mind, ask THEM what they are willing to charge for the project. This usually causes people to give offers that are lower than what you normally pay, and will make them happy.

Artist payment:

Make it clear to whomever you hire that they will not be payed until ALL the work is completed, unless it is completed by a predefined date, and unless it matches or exceeds expectations. Sometimes I have an issues getting all of these things, but if you give someone a job they’re expected to treat it as so even if they’re just a hobbyist. Paying prior to the completion of the project is a bad idea for several reasons. Only paying for the finished work encourages the artist to finish their job faster, if you pay up front the artist has no motivation to finish quickly. Similarly, if you pay up front the artist could disappear and you may never get what you payed for!

And a comment that the host of their article likes. Which really pisses me off: Under a cut, because this is getting long.
Fucker. )

Also:
His nick on sites like Newgrounds, Kongregate and Armor Games is xdragonx10. Spread the word about this article. Go tell him (politely) what is wrong about his business policy. Avoid his games if at all possible. Show him that what he's doing is coming back to bite him in the ass and not earning him one more cent.

I mean really WHAT THE FUCK MAN. Spreading the word because this whole thing is absolute bullshit.

So...totally am supposed to be working on the living room, but I don't feel like it. :\ Damn tornado sirens went off at noon, so that's when I woke up since it's the monthly testing day. We have it the first Saturday of every month, and I haven't been able to fall back asleep. Did finally start that load of dishes though, so that's a start? At least I have something to show instead of marking more fanfiction to my list of read...

So at work, have a chick that is coming over from another store for two nights a week for a while, not sure why but whatever, not the first time this has happened. Anyway, she's a lot better than some of the other people they got for us, like that one girl we kept calling Judi II. This one actually knows service and grill!! That's a blessing all on its own. And she knows how to work and doesn't tell m e that if she stands still, customers won't come! I don't care how long she's with us, I can over see good things coming,. Now all we need is for my regular crew to get more hours and I'll be set!! I think sleep depervation is making me more hopefully about this than I usually am. :3

Lets see...anything else to ramble on about....

Uh...that's a big honking no unless you count the fact that I haven't been sketching lately. I think I'll do that later instead of taking a nap. XD Art > sleep yes?

Peace,

up up and away psycho

Did another friending meme, and used a less creepy picture than I did for the other one...I guess no one appreciated bloody!Bakura... Oh well. I'll link it in a minute. I gotta thing if I have anything else to needlessly ramble about...

So, the crew convention was boring as all hell, but I was able to see some of my friends from Woodhaven. Who were complaining up a storm until my store manager looked at them and explained how much easier they had it than our crew. Which shut them up. OH NO. THEY DON'T HAVE 17 PEOPLE LIKE LUNCH/GET BREAKS/HAVE TWO EXTRA PEOPLE THAN WE DO/a bunch of other shit. Seriously, they don't know how much easier their midnight shift is. At all.

After that fun 2.5 hours of complete and utter bullshit (and learning that since it's our franchises' 50th year, we are going to do a lot of promotions. u____________u), went to the mall for some shop-theraphy. My Yugioh collection grew by two volumes because they finally had the ones I was on! Also am buying Shaman King out of order. u__u They never have the volume I'm on and I know the plot otherwise so I don't think it's a big deal. Also started Pandora Hearts because I can. Still waiting for the next volume of 07-Ghost and I need to look on Border's website for my other series. I also REALLY need to do another manga inventory and update my manga post. I almost miss counting how many different series I have/how many volumes I own.

As for the moment...watching my roommate play FFXIII. We've already decided that Seipher and Zell had a kid and named him Snow...because we can and we like making up headcannon crack. I missed having them around. XD

Peace,

gonna read manga and/or doodle. maybe nap psycho

So, lost my pen tool for my tablet. Found the pen tool for my tablet. And for the other tablet. Just don't ask me where my mouse is. Found the mouse for my other tablet...I think I failed epically in that respect. Like to keep myself on my toes I do. :D

Otherwise, nothing much. I think these are the last two days of the meme if memory serves right...meaning that I'll go back to my sporadic updating which may be a good thing. Mostly because this way I'll actually have stuff to talk about instead of droning on and on about my boring ass life. Yay!!

So, on with the memes since I did nothing to merit an entry yesterday/tonight/today. I don't even know anymore. XD Although I did go over my older entries. Sadly, the hatred I've felt towards dipshit has not lessened over the years.

Music!! )

Also, uploaded this song to infect you all with. It's one of my favorite showtunes that everyone either had the "updated" version or live versions where you couldn't tell wtf they were saying. So enjoy!


Depends on What you Pay

My roommates are back! The two weeks were fun, but it's nice to have them back home. I won't worry so much over the house exploding. I always get so paranoid about the stupidest things when left alone... Leave me and my oddness alone. XD

In light of it being 8:56, quick meme time!

Music )

Peace,

gotta run like a bitch psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (prussia-pirate high life)
So...trip and meme. Lets get started!!

Ohio. The state without turnarounds. )

Well, that was my trip. Which was pretty fun considering!! Although next time, WILL NOT FORGET ADVIL AND GO ON MORE RIDES!! Seriously. I'm looking at you Magnum, Millennium Force, and Raptor.

Have three days worth of music...or more. /doesn't remember the part I'm on

MUSIC!! )

There. Now you're all cultured and I'm caught up with the meme. 8D

Peace,

should sleep soon yess psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (what?!?)
So...got NegaTimmy cleaned up and ready for coloring. Still have to create a background for Bakura and work on Prussia...

Today is a day for art. Which means that minimal cleaning is going to end up getting done. And I still have to pack for my overnight stay in Ohio... As I open photoshop. XD

It seems that coloring would be easier in photoshop than in opencanvas. All the tutorials I find are for PS anyway and those that are for OC are for like...1.0 and I have 4.something or other. XD So I guess that I'll just stick to PS for coloring until I play with OC some more. XD

Has some music yes? )

Peace,

hyped for Cedar Point and artsy psycho

My eye keeps twitching and I have no idea why. It's been doing this for the past few hours, so I'm hoping it's just sleep deprivation or something.

Bought a swim suit that will never see the light of day unless it's underneath my clothing. Fat legs, arms, and gut are not appealing. At all. Also bought a knife and already named him Bakura (yes, I name my knives. Don't judge me.) because I'm a fantard. Also got a Chuck Noris shirt! I love Target!!

I'll just leave this here and go lay down... because DAMN is this twitch annoying.



Peace,

omfg this twitch is annoying the fuck out of me psycho

So. Sup?

darkdragonofthenever: (nazi prussia smile)
Got most of the kitchen done last night, but none of the trash out. :\ My ankle started to bother me about two so I had to call the cleaning quits and opted to watch this documentary on Russia's Czars instead. XD And then found out that there's going to be one on how the US states got their shapes, so I'm hoping I'll be home to catch that, because that sounds really interesting.

Been practicing with my tablet tonight, although nothing really came out. Have a few cool concepts for art to try out on a later date, but nothing really OMG MUST SHOW OFF/FINISH THIS!! worthy.

Going shopping for stuff for Cedar Point tomorrow. Put in the hotel reservation tonight because my friend and I are going right after she gets off work (she works midnights too) so we decided we'd better just get a hotel for the night so that we come back to Michigan alive. Would be nice right? And she might let me drive which...uh...haven't been behind the wheel in 3 years...so we'll see about that. I doubt she will but she keeps mentioning it so I'm not so sure. I really hope not. I don't want anything to happen to us/the car, because knowing my luck, something will.

I'M ACTUALLY GOING TO GET SOME SUNLIGHT TOMORROW!! It's such a shock! I think the last time I was going to get this much sunlight was last year when we all went to the Renaissance festival. I don't remember if it was last September or August, but I know it was awhile ago. I just can't wait to ride all the roller coasters! Like the Gemini. Every time I go I end up riding that thing like, 7 times. And the Corkscrew and Millennium Force and Top-Thrill Dragster and The Power Tower and... I'll just stop. XD I've been looking forward to this all month so I'm really excited about it!!

Anywho, lets get to the daily meme!!

Hey Mr. DJ turn up that song I wanna dance with my baby )

Peace,

going to doodle some more psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (awesome sauce)
I finally finished DRRRR!! Excuse me as I celebrate the completion of another series and a loss of something to take up my idle time with. XD Maybe I'll fill it in with another Gundam Wing rewatch. Because heaven knows I love that anime WAAAAY too much.

I'd say lets get a group for this, but knowing me, I'll end up getting bored/remember stuff I have to do. We'll see how thrilling this idea sounds with some sleep and actual cleaning accomplished. I still haven't done half of my list that I got from my roommates and they're due back I think Sunday or something. And I'm going to Cedar Point on Wednesday so there's an entire day gone... I need to haul ass the next two days!!

I was going to rant about work, but I really don't want to. However, I will say that people need to learn to have some fucking compassion. Because there's no way someone who's been there for 3 months is going to be as awesome as someone who's been there for 7 years. Just saying.

Hit me with some music baby )

Peace,

might doodle a little instead of cleaning psycho

So, trying to watch DRRR and megavideo decides that I'm not logged in when it turns out I am. And it's just not registering that I am. And youtube doesn't have the episode I'm on. :\ I'll look tomorrow when I have time after work. I have 5 more episodes damnit!!!!!!!!

Work last night was...interesting to say the least. Had a guy from Allen Park come over, because we had a call off. At least he knew enough service to make last night bareable. :\ I was stuck in back booth which isn't a hard position, but it is when you're trying to manage shift. Not something I recommend. Tonight SHOULD run smoother. Should. Or I keep on hoping.

So...have a meme!!

Music!! )

Peace,

gotta feed the cats and go to work psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (bakubaku)
Last night at work was not fun. The other Southgate store lost all power, so of course, that meant mine was busy as all hell. And then factor in the fact that one of my crew's diabetes was acting up.... And before that had a tornado apparently touch down like, 2 miles south of my house. Again. Oh Downriver bubble...why aren't you protecting us now?

I'm glad I'm home.

Watched the Hetalia dub before I went in though, AND OMG EXCITED CAPS LOCK FLAIL!! Seriously, totally looking forward to the dub coming out. September can NOT come fast enough!!

Speaking of fangirling, totally back into my Bakura-fan stage. Even a part of an icon community and everything! [livejournal.com profile] dnfwtf if you wanna watch! My actual update is here!!.

Anywhoo...meme time!!

Last day of the Hetalia Meme! )

Music is a 2fer! )

Peace,

darkdragonofthenever: (do you know)
So...bought another tablet.........

I swear on my interwebs that if this one doesn't last AT LEAST 6 months, I'm done with them forever. No joke. I'll just have to get really good friends with my scanner/camera and that will be that. And maybe buy like a $5 mouse for coloring. Because I can't color with my touch mouse on my laptop. XD

Seriously. Because if 3rd one's not the charm, I don't even know what to do. Although so far, so good. First thing I draw? Bakura. Click me for a teaser! I'm working on him right now...and his ring is flippin' harder than it should be. XD

Otherwise, dyed my friend's hair red today...from blonde so it's REALLY red now. XD I wish I had my camera to take a picture...but I let my roommates borrow it so they could take a lot of pictures of them and their family. :D

Have some memes:

Music! )

Hetalia )

Peace,

has good music and some inspiration psycho

yeah...

Jul. 20th, 2010 10:39 pm
darkdragonofthenever: (bakura first impressions)
Kinda bored/hyper. I'll just leave these memes here... and I already know that I'm gonna regret the first one...oh well.

We may know each other but do we know each other? Here is your chance to ask me any question you want and have me answer it honestly! Seriously. ANYTHING.

Music )

Leave me a lot of interesting questions!
