good evening ~

How is everyone?

Okay, so in my first blog, I was talking about how I need a new way to spend my time (mostly so I don't waste my whole life on Facebook and Tumblr) and that there was a ~*~secret~*~ creative outlet I was going to try.

The good news is, I'm on my 3rd little sort of.. project? Yeah, I guess that's what you call it when you're actually working to accomplish something :P I like it but it's going to take a lot of time for me to get really comfortable in it. We'll see how it goes, but for right now it's looking good :)

In other news, a couple nights ago I spilled a Rockstar in the corner of my keyboard. Well, my cat did. And now tab, caps lock, ~,1, and 2 are all sticking. I haven't yet found the courage to test the escape key…

Anyway, boredom creates pointless rambles. I hope anyone who happened to read this far enjoyed it, though, or that it at least killed some time. And I hope you're all having a ***fantastic*** day!

Yank the keys out and clean it?

Yes, it's time to apply occam's razor.

Well, I thought about trying to take the keyboard apart but I asked Shaq about it and now we're pretty sure that, with the way my computer is built, the keys will probably break if we do that. :|

And.. okay. I have had no creative outlet since I basically gave up writing a couple months ago. (I was in an abusive relationship with it.) And I've considered like a butt ton of other things but never liked or was good at any of them. Then last week Shaq cajoled me into watching Indie Game: the Movie and when they showed the way they were making their sprites and everything I decided I wanted to try it.

SO basically I'm trying to pick up pixel art as a thing.

And I made this:

So.. yeah :P

Wtf is occam's razor?

a philosophical theory that basically states "do the easy shit."

I have no idea what Rez is talking about though.
I'm guessing he doesn't like your solution.

hm it would appear ive made no sense. I thought it meant the easiest solution is the right one. thats the last time i apply things i heard in LA noire to real life.

this is a good start, nothing to really critique with a piece this simple though.

Hey, what happened to your avatar again, steven?

Out of curiosity, how did you come up with the username you have now?

Well thank you! Yeah it's nothing too huge, and neither are the other things I'm doing. I'm just trying to get the hang of it before I try to do anything in-depth. I still don't really even know anything about it other than "don't use too many colors," but I'll get there :)
