On iTunes USA, there's a single release that's apparently the UNDER:COVER 2 version of Burnin X'Mas. It just has a photo of Takanori from Inazuma 2011 as the cover...

My neighbors have been jackhammering all weekend.


On Labor Day Weekend.


Yesterday me and my mother went to the beach to escape it. It was really nice; not that crowded. We both got the shit kicked out of us by the waves. I haven't been to the beach in 3 years, heh.

Then we came home to jackhammering and hell started all over again.

Also, here's a shout out to Judo. You have my prayers for you and your family.

So as it would seem, summer comes to a close in a few days.

I have mixed fgeelings about it, I suppose. On one hand I feel like I should have done more this summer. While I may not miss the heat, I'm going to miss the sun and the ability to lay about as I please. This year is going to be so busy. No more sleeping all day and what not. It's time to get down to the nitty gritty!

But I think I can handle it. I've managed to stop doubting myself...getting my haircut and starting my new exercise routine has instilled something resembling confidence and I'm not as intimidated by this upcoming year as I was before. But I'm going to miss just hanging out with people and, you know, being a lazy ragamuffin teenager.

Still, I'm looking forward to the upcoming fall. The change of weather's going to be great...plus I love the change of scenery around here. Not to mention my birthday's coming up! =D

Ah, well. Just a little update, I thought. Felt like typing something (usually all my updates say the same thing...).

And, as you can tell by my subject header, I've been listening to The Cure. Feel free to shoot me for being a faggot.

I know it was a few nights ago, but.

I absolutely have to tell you all about the Pet Shop Boys concert.

It was one of the greatest things I've ever seen. It was so fun and energetic! Everything about it was amazing. Neil's singing, Chris' playing, the choreography, the set design, everything was great! And because they were in New York, they played 'New York City boy' for us! They also did three songs they haven't performed live in over 25 years! (These being 'Two divided by zero,' 'Why don't we live together?,' and 'Do I have to?') It was great fun. They had 4 back up dancers/singers: two white girls who were twins (they were so cute!) a black girl (she had a really, really nice voice) and a black guy (who was fucking gorgeous). At the end they did this giant bombastic version of 'It's a sin' complete with strobe lights and confetti canons, and then they came out at the end, Neil wearing a giant black feathered hat and Chris wearing a hat that looked like a potted plant, and did 'Being boring' (during which I almost cried) and 'West End girls.' It was the COOLEST FUCKING THING I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! Also, Neil said we were fabulous. <3

tl;dr I'm a huge queen and I had a good time.

To give you a taste of the show, here's a clip of them doing 'Two divided by zero' and 'Why don't we live together?' recorded from one of their festival shows in England.


Oh, how I love those men.

Well, Saturday was my grandfather's birthday party. He turned 83 on Friday. It was...mostly old people. And I think some of my dad's extended relatives. And those extended relatives' son and his girlfriend.

Everyone was absolutely fawning over my new haircut. It was kind of embarrassing, but I enjoyed the attention, I suppose. Everyone confuses me for my brother because I look older than he does. I'm more social than he is, so I guess it comes off as older...? I don't know.

He started college yesterday. MY LITTLE MAN IS ALL GROWN UP ;___; well, sort of.

PSB tomorrow. I'm both excited and worried...I don't want to go trampled like I did at the VAMPS concert. Though then again, it's the Pet Shop Boys, so I suppose the crowd will be mostly old gay guys. Haha.

I start school next week. I'm actually looking forward to it. I did shitty last year, so I anticipate the prospect of working hard at getting good grades to make up for the shitty grades I had last year. I'm also looking forward to Drama Club again. Since I'm going to be a senior this year, me and my friends will probably have a lot more say in what goes on in Drama due to the fact that we have seniority now, so it'll be nice to have more of a hand in things than I did the past two years due to being younger in a club dominated by older students.

Though then again, the thought of being a senior also worries me a little as well. I still have so much to take care of regarding colleges...it's scary. I'm sure I'll be able to get help and support from my teachers, though I'm sure a lot of it will have to be on my part.

It's so cool now...the weather's looking up. It didn't rain yesterday. I hope the weather stays like this today & tomorrow, I have cleaning to do and tomorrow's the Boys.

Summer's almost over...g'night (or morning? lol idk) boys & girls!

I can barely get an internet connection anywhere in this house. It sucks. Plus I think the heat is coming back. D:

I just want fall to get here...is that so much to ask? A little cool weather? Gawd.

But, listen to me, babbling on and complaining. I haven't slept much tonight. 's Probably what it is.

I want some new music to listen to. I'm so sick of japanese music...none of the bands I like have anything new out right now. Or if they do it's completely unaccessable (I'M LOOKING AT YOU MISTA ASSAKURA)

I tried drawing The Endless siblings from Neil Gaiman's The Sandman today. I really like those characters and that book. Give it a look if you're ever in a bookstore.

Yesterday was my grandfather's birthday and today's his party. 8D I'm not sure how old he is, though. Either 83 or 84. God bless 'em.

I'm going to...attempt to sleep. Attempt is used loosely here.

today's such a shit day. it's rainy and cool but I can't open the windows and let the cool air in :|

my brother's trying to sign up for college classes...honestly, the sooner he's in school again, the better. boy needs him some socializing and whatnot.

I similarly am eager for school to start up again. I wanna start getting back on the road with my life...

'm also excited for drama club to start again. now that I'm a senior maybe I'll have some full reign...crucible ftw.

last night I hung out with ashley & her gaytarded friends...something about hanging around the kids in my neighborhood makes me feel both vastly superior (in terms of intellect that is) and both angry. but, whatever I guess. I have my life, they have theirs, etc.

I took a hot shower, and I think I'm going to go into my parents room, shut the lights off, turn on some new age music with sleepy time tea and a candle lit.

keep on truckin', boys & girls ♥

Howdy, boys'n'girls!

Jesus fuck it's been so long since I updated this thing. I'm terrible at keeping an LJ. /shamed

Anyway, uh, I suppose I should bring you up to date on my meager life. I got a haircut approximately a month ago. My hair used to be down to my upper back, but now it's completely short. I've got this kinda faux-hawky thing going on.

Here's a picture!

Isn't is fab that I can look so completely menacing with only a slight tip of the head? I just love my weird-ass triangle face sometimes.

Anyway, I've also been exercising and trying to eat better (out of luck if you want pics of that) and I've generally been feeling more mellow. I've kind of made my peace with a lot of things that used to make me angry, so I guess I've just been happier. C=

Also, HOLY FUCK PSB NEXT WEEK. I am so fucking excited! This is, like, my first big-name act that I'll be seeing.

...well, I did see The Who at Maddison Square Garden a few years back, but I barely remember it.

Still, really excited.

Also, Judo is the most amazing woman that has ever walked the face of the earth.


:'3 love you so much.

Another day, another sleepless night, another morning delving into an afternoon spent with a mother hounding after me to fold clothes and clean, a hunched brother with wide eyes and too much time on his hands, and a ticking time bomb that can only barely be called a man.
What am I going to do with my life?

I really should get a job, or something. Denia’s an apprentice to some artist downtown. Kaitlin’s going to SCAD for one whole week in July. And meanwhile, what am I doing? I’m up at 3 o’clock in the morning, listening to obscure folk rock bands and typing blog entries that nobody reads.

God, I really do live a whole lot of life, don’t I?

Ah, but that is the fate of the artist, I suppose. To toil in obscurity forever and ever. Heh. That joke never seems to get old to me. But that makes me feel bad, too. Aside from those crappy life drawings I did a few days ago, I haven’t drawn anything worth while at all. I feel like such a failure sometimes, but then I have to remind myself that I’m young.
And then colleges. Oh God, colleges. I have no idea what I’m going to do. They’ve already started calling my house and they’ve been sending me emails. I look around me and I feel like all my friends and everyone I know is so much more proactive than I am. Kaitlin’s all over the place calling about internships and whatnot. My mother keeps pressuring me to get a job, but what could the world possibly offer someone like me, at this point in my life? Cleaning the toilets out at McDonald’s? Yes, everyone keeps telling me that I shouldn’t care what it is that I’m doing, only the fact that I’m making money. Well, what about dignity? Or is that something people my age aren’t permitted?

And, once again, this weather. God, I really wish the sun would come out. I’ve been dying to use my pool. But you’ve already heard that schpeal, haven’t you? Hehe.

This summer is looking so bleak already. Despite all the bullshit I have to go through in school, in a way, I’m looking forward to it more than ever. It was something to do with myself, I suppose. I also feel I didn’t work up to what I can do this year.

And I miss my friends, I really do. Everyone’s just so busy lately, and I feel like no one has the time for me because they’re all to busy living their lives. Everyone’s off improving themselves somehow, whether it’s Kaitlin with SCAD or Denia with her apprenticeship or Eddy with his excersie regimen or the seniors graduating. Meanwhile, I’m sitting here bitching about how I’m not doing anything in particular.

All right, that’s it. No more of this foolishness. I’m going to do something with myself…

…though I don’t know what it is yet.


Keep on truckin,’ everyone! I’m off to achieve!

Hopefully maybe!

Do you ever wake up just feeling good about life?

I sure as hell did today. I had trouble sleeping, so I woke up, got on DeviantArt, and did some life sketching. Mostly nudes. I just feel so...I don;t know how to describe it. Empowered? Optimistic? I've got a Mountain Goats album playing, drinking coffee, and it feels right. Almost like I've had a revelation of some sort. I feel like, for once, everything in my life is going in the right direction. It's a good feeling, and I hope it lasts and that no shitty weather will be able to pierce it.

This summer, I am going to make a difference. I'm going to get active with shit, and suchlike. I've decided that I'm going to read more, and watch more movies, like I said in my last post. I'm not going to do cartoony sketches for a while, I'm going to work on things from life. I also think I'm going to do some experimentation with other media, too. Things like pastel and paint, maybe. Anyway, here are some of the sketches I did today. All are in pencil, one is colored pencil.


Keep it real, guys!
