Happy New Year!

Goodbye 2018! It’s been so long, but you had to go. You were a little bit better than 2017 even through your darkest moments. Still, I got some series and stories completed. I wanted to get this out a little bit earlier, but here we are.

I will set small monthly goals for myself this year. I will be finishing up some works as well. This time, I will try and get edited and published more. (Hopefully, by a traditional publisher.) I might even try to get a publishing agent. Plus, I will pick up another job as well. So many plans for 2019. Let’s just hope it all sticks.

Happy New Year and may 2019 bring out the best in you!

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays

Ah, Christmas Eve! The time before Christmas itself. How is everyone doing? I am doing great. My septic tank got fixed and I can use the water in my house again. I baked cookies for my grandfather and myself. I got to eat a good Christmas Eve dinner. And I have been busy writing.

I can’t wait for tomorrow. I can’t wait to see the looks on my family’s face when they see their gifts from me. Plus, we are having Asian food for dinner tomorrow. I will be posting special Christmas goodies with my work tomorrow too.  Look forward to it. I will make one more blog in 2018 next Monday. Look forward to that too. For now, good night, wait patiently for Christmas, and…

Tumblr is a Mess!

So if you haven’t heard by now, Tumblr is cracking down on NSFW art. I do not need to go into detail as you have seen it splashed all over Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, here, and all other pieces of social media. Just go and read the post on the staff Tumblr. Why is this happening? The story goes like this: the Tumblr app got banned from the Apple store due to the child porn running a muck on the platform. So now, the Tumblr execs are trying to clean up their act in a rather sloppy way by December 17th. Now, NSFW artists are going apeshit. Granted, writers will be left unharmed by the changes in service terms. (Even though some of them are acting paranoid.) I personally am going to be fine because I am a writer. (It might effect me sharing posts from my Controversial Album Cover display in November. But, I think everything will be sorted by then.)

Everyone in the Tumblr community is pissed. Some artists are abandoning ship already. I’m not mad at all. I’m going to be fine. I just hope Tumblr sorts out this mess that way everyone will calm the fuck down. But for now…

Brexit Sinks Further Into the Ocean

Well, it has happened.

Boris Johnson is gone! He has resigned this morning. Theresa May is screwed. It looks like Brexit might be canceled. I was told no, but it’s just getting worse by the day. I love England as much as I love Japan, but they and the rest of the UK didn’t think this through. They are like a little kid who told their parent that they were running away, but didn’t pack any food, water, clothes, money, or even plan out a destination. I am just over here shaking my head. Maybe they will cancel Brexit or get back into the EU in some way. Who knows?

Meanwhile, you can…

Christmas Will be Coming

Both Christmas trees are up. (My grandmother’s and mine.) I will go Christmas shopping tomorrow. (A big part of it, anyway.) I still have a huge load to work on. My Netflix list is shrinking again. I will be done with this series called Dad of Light  by Thursday. I might finish another one before 2017 is over.

Speaking of which, I will try to get onto editing Steel Prison over the holidays. I am just about done with chapter two last time I checked. I am so close, but yet so far away. I am aiming to have Steel Prison published by next year. I have gotten back into playing Sims again. I missed this game so much. It feels so good to be playing again.

I am still waiting for 2017 to be over so that I can start having a better year in 2018. While I do that, you can…

Is 2017 Over Yet?

I can’t wait for this year to be over. Sadly, we have three more days and a whole month left. I am so bored, to be honest. I feel like I am stuck. I’m still writing, but I haven’t put out anything to publish this year. My job’s getting slow and the edits for Steel Prison aren’t on a schedule. Most of my efforts were spent fixing my web site. (Thanks Photobucket for ruining everything! Not!)

I don’t know. Maybe I just need something new. Maybe 2018 will be better. I do need to make some changes. And I will try as hard as I can. Maybe find something new in the process. For now, I have to get through the rest of this year while you…

It’s Time to Wrap Up Things

Ever look at piece of work and go, “Yeah, it’s time to wrap you up.” I am going to end a draft that I have been working on since 2009. I think I will finish it on Wednesday. I will have see how I feel.

Things have been going to slow at my job. I’m hoping that it picks up again. I’m still fixing the pictures on my site. I need to fix the pictures in this blog too. The progress is moving along, however. I am just about to finish fixing up the main pages on the main site. I still have to work on the smaller sections, but I know I can do it. Edits for Steel Prison is coming along nicely and I think I like Taylor Swift’s new song. (I don’t really care about her, but the song’s good in a way. I’m using it to write a chapter for my story, Devil’s Scandal, tomorrow.) I can’t wait to write more for my Wasteland 2011 project this week. I get to start on the D.Gray-Man section this Thursday.

That’s about it for now, I think. You will see more of the City Lounge: London soon next month. For now…

I Need Some Recomendations

I am feeling lazy again with my watching things. I did start Inside No. 9 last week and the first episode was quite interesting. I might go back to it when I’m not so lazy. Fixing the pictures on my site is going well. It’s still going to take me a long time to change those pictures from Photobucket to Imgur, but the Chrome extension, Fix Embedded Photobucket Images, just made it a little bit easier for me.

Meanwhile, I’m waiting for American Horror Story: Cult to start up in two weeks. In the meantime, I am looking for something new to latch onto to help break my laziness and get me back into the rhythm of watching my backlogs again. Anybody have any ideas? Comment below in the comment section. While you’re at it…

Rant Corner #6

I’ve been sitting on this for close to a week, but it just has to come out. So here goes.

Ever since 2004, I have used this picture storage site called Photobucket. I just uploaded my pictures and hot link the to my web site to save space because I am so broke at the moment. Everything’s been going go.

Until this month.

For some reason, some “genius” decided to stop allow hot linking to third-party sites. This blocked out pictures with an image saying you need to go to this link to upgrade your account. In order to have your pictures back on your site/forum/blog, you have to pay up to $400 a year.

Are you kidding me?! This is a joke, right?! NOBODY WANTS TO PAY $400 TO HOT LINK THEIR PICTURES! What makes it worse is that Photobucket changed their terms of service without any warning whatsoever. People are pissed! There are many complaints on their Facebook and Twitter pages. I even signed a petition for them to change their policy back. Photobucket has done nothing to address their problem or fix it. Now, I understand needing money to keep the site open, but $400 is not a reasonable price to charge for ANYTHING online. $50 or lower is reasonable, but not $400. It would be one thing if Photobucket said, “Hey everybody, we’re going to be doing this” ahead of time. But they didn’t even do that.

I’m on Imgur now and will have time fixing all the pictures on my site. (Even more so since the files on Webs won’t load and I can’t get the upload function to work. I keep asking for tech support to help, I haven’t heard anything back from them since last week. I might go into that for another rant if nothing changes.) I even have my pictures backed up on various CD’s. But the problem is figuring out where the hell everything goes on my massive and forever-growing site. Argh! Photobucket and Webs keep creating more work for me and tech fail that are driving me crazy! Can I just have one day without tech fail and have my web running and functioning how I want it?! Is that too much to ask for?! IS IT?!

R.I.P. Pinky

Christmas 2008- February 15th, 2017

That’s right. Pinky has died. My first laptop has decided to stop working. What exactly happened? Was it the hard drive? A virus? Nope. The cmos battery holder came off. I kind of messed with it a year before just to get o the CMOS battery out to change it. I tried to super glue the holder back on and change the CMOS battery, but when I booted it back up the laptop, it said “Time of Clock has stopped”. Yep, it’s dead. I took out the hard drive to get the data off, but I don’t have the chords to connect to the new laptop. Speaking of which, I am using my new laptop (Which I have named Celty) and it is sweet! It has more space and the downloads on iTunes are much faster. Plus, the battery lasts longer than Pinky’s second battery.

It’s funny, Pinky lasted through the whole Obama administration. Oh well. I guess I figure out to fix Pinky one day and the other external hard drive. But for now…
