A Good Sunday/Kamikaze
A week and countless Kamikaze listens later, I thought I might revise my earlier order of favorites off this spectacular album. They're now, probably:
- Not Alike
- The Ringer
- Lucky You
Though it's getting harder and harder to judge: they're all great. There's just that one song I don't particularly like to play when there be other people in the house. And Normal's starting to feel a bit too normal.
Regarding the winter time shift I still don't have time to spare. If anything it seems I'm sleeping more than before. I'm going to bed earlier and getting up later anyway, and not feeling any more awake because of it. Might be just one of those weeks huh. It's been a bit hectic, with B-day celebrations (two days) and a few other plans that didn't really come to fruition. They're booked in for next week instead. Possibly too little D (vitamins) too.
My revisioning this weekend's gone way better than it did last month though! Fast like a BlazeMint TM.
Maybe because I went through the latest batch in one consecutive session - one post at a time. Maybe because they were better written from the start. Maybe because I'm on a roll. Maybe because I somehow feel a bit more focused than I usually feel like right now. Watched a video on political ideologies just now and I wasn't even phased. Could it have been the Adwords-learning session I had with my boss last Friday...? That required some focus. Why people use that thing. Rhetorical question.
I'm still going with those endless guest verse revisions though... or back to stalling on new recordings while I contemplate how to handle this. Get in better shape. Stop having to breath while I rhyme. I don't know. I wrote a little something about that, though. Also.
Otherwise it's been a pretty damn good Sunday! Blue skies. November sunshine (too low but still lightly). We fixed a lamp post that's been in need of a new light bulb for at least a year, I put up fifteen auctions at campaign price (deadline being today) and it looks like I got myself a new VA role! Thing's are on a roll. Work's a grind but times are good, and this new week's bound to be interesting... maybe more to type about regarding that in another dose of days. :) See you then.
Halloween Carvings III
It's All Hallows' Eve today, so what better time to post a couple of yearly pumpkins? :) They were carved on Halloween, but today's actually the day we really celebrate here, so here you go: two new scenes for 2018.
Have a good day too. Lead the ghosts of beloved ones to a better place; contemplate the past, the ancients, and the future that waits tomorrow...
If you missed that link above these were both carved with this. It's a pretty nifty thing! If you have an account you can share your creations too.
I Just Don't Know How To Express...
I just don't know how to express myself sometimes when I need to be properly different.
Ain't that the truth.
Winter Time Kamikaze Drawing Rounds
Our time shifted today. Summer to winter. As if to make it official the snow swept in against us during both our morning and afternoon promenade, and between those times the sun shone outside; we sat in with cake and a cup of tea, celebrating my sister's 40th birthday.
Happy Birthday Maud!
I've been uploading Inktober submissions to the site today, both old and new, and you'll probably be seeing some more of the new ones in the coming days! They're all drawn via this. Go check it out. It's pretty fun!
I had some other dues I hoped to do today, but alas the weekend's up now, and tomorrow it all starts again. Winter time or no it seems I wake up the same time. I was hoping I'd have an hour to spare. Maybe tomorrow.
I'm listening to Eminem's newest album as I write this, and have been most of today. Kamikaze. I love it. From the first round and all that follow! Favorite tracks right now, in order:
- Not Alike
- Lucky You
- The Ringer
...that last one's just so catchy! Stepping Stones would definitely have been one of those if it wasn't for the Berserk-like bits of it, which just don't fit a bit, and it's a shame about the MGK feud but you can't not appreciate that track anyway. I'm not taking sides. I'm tuned in to both. I appreciate y'all.
This whole album's great though! What a change from the previous! Em does it best without the hype. With a little bit of anger. I think I'll keep this on loop for at least a few days and nights now.
See you soon, with quite a few soon due Inktober doodles.
George Orwell - A Final Warning
I just stumbled upon this, his very last message to the world, and sadly it's as relevant now as ever. Seen in the wrong light it may be hard to see that boot, or to feel it pressing upon you if it starts doing so so ever so slightly, increasing its weight over time, but if you're aware of it then you can remove your face. You can fell your victor. There's billions of us, and there's really not many who trample us down.
Climb the pyramid and grapple that crown. Let the pyramid topple, and of us the lot, all, get back on the ground.
