A Paprika life

I watched the movie Paprika again recently. I've seen it once before I don't remember being too impressed with it then. Maybe I didn't appreciate it's awesome artisticness, or maybe my inner self was already colorful and the movie was nothing new to me. This time I saw it was like "that was me!" The freedom, the control, the color, the movement!. I had my own Paprika.
I think reality has dulled my mind.
Possibilities are no longer endless, the color is gone, my mind is not free anymore.
WTF happened to me?
I'm listening to the opening song trying to recapture my dream. Here is the opening credits for the movie, you might want the sound up on this one. there are also videos featuring the whole song on yt also.(there is also a really good one featuring Kaito the vocaloid's voice)

It's been a while

Gotta love Linux. I did a system update not too long ago, then last night I decided to work on a picture and wadda ya know? It had installed the newest release of GIMP! I knew 2.8 was out, but I hadn't gotten around to installing it yet. ^_^

Maybe exploring the new features will help me shed my artblock! Playing Pokemon seems to be helping

I haven't been on the O except to check comic updates. My inbox is full of birthday alerts and I owe requests to challenge winners too!

Life! Y U so demanding?!?!

As for here having housemates has it's ups and downs.
The water is out because the well pump died. It is a breezy -40 outside, like it has been for the last week! I'm worried if I get the water running again, if I can't keep the house warm enough the pipes will freeze and burst. I did buy and have one of the guys install Pex tubing, that stuff has a bit of expanding room if it freezes, but I never got around to putting in the heat tape and insulation. So yeah, sorry about the ranting. I've been kinda mentally exhausted, so even when I have time I don't feel like doing much.

I think at some point since last winter I traded anime, video games and art for watching tv :S

eBay stuff for sale!

Hey everyone! If you are into buying anime and video games on eBay I thought I'd let you know that I am selling a few things!

Mostly games, and a lot of it has a Best offer options too! All of it has free shipping to the USA, but it'll be slow. All international shipping is $5.00 usd and will be shipped USPS economy international mail(also slow). Right now I am only accepting PayPal.

Here is the LINK for my item page.

I am trying to set it up so that you can use a promo code and get a 10% discount!

Right not it is not set up, but if you type Otaku into the 'message to seller' area( instead of the promo code area) when paying I can give you a 10% refund. This applies for any item bought!

You can also PM me here if you forgot to add it, just let me know which item you bought.

Holiday time break!

Alright! I saved up leave time at work enough for two weeks off! So from the 15th to Jan 3 I'll be free!

Hopefully even with the holidays I will spend more time here! I am behind on tons of projects; comics, fanarts, gifts, challenges challenge prizes >_< I was also planning to make some paintings to sell on line. I'm glad I don't have a whole bunch of other sites to keep me tied up, other than here it's mostly Gaia, Facebook, Youtube and Ebay. Even then I mostly just check them rather than actually doing anything.

I'ts cold out there...

...And I go outside without a coat!
No sweaters for me! Just my tee shirt, jeans and work boots. Throw on my gloves and hat and bring in an arm load of snowy logs for the furnace! All morning I was shoveling snow at work, now only my toes are still cold. At work (about 15 miles form my home) the temperature was hovering around zero, here it is -18!
Today I actually took a picture of it!

*EDIT* Ok it's about 2 1/2 hours later and now it says -22 but it feels waaaay colder than this afternoon when I posted this. Either 4 degrees really makes a difference or my thermometer is broken...
