Leaving for work in a minute, and @ 40+ hours a week I just know i'm going to struggle with commissions, so i'll probably close them tonight... can't take anymore! Also I pulled a muscle in my left armpit area, so that coupled with my right elbow (one that broke) isn't TOO SMART for a warehouse job XD Oh well!! Maybe all the straining and stuff will do it good!

In other news, ferrets rule.

I SHOULD POST MORE

Sep. 19th, 2009 | 01:35 pm

This is one of the many many journals where I say "I should post more.", yet, never do.

I got a twitter anyway, which is easier and much more post-modern and hip cool :3 http://twitter.com/magferret

I'm starting to dislike my FA username a LOT. I just can't really change it seeing as I have my reputation/fanbase/stalkers/whatever in that account :( Maybe one day when I have a much more solid following, I can change over to something better.

People think I'm a girl. It's because Mag wears a pink scarf. :( It's weird though, I've never had this problem until now, I'm surprised I've not had people thinking it sooner.

I got a new sketchbook, this cute small one, recycled paper... of course. :3 First thing I drew in it: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2809825

My arm is getting better, slowly. I had moar physiotherapy on it on weds, was painful, but helped a lot! It seizes up sometimes and it still won't extend fully, but generally it's fine. Just doubting I can get my arm extended fully ever again, which is more than likely.

Uhhhhhhhhhh that's about it I think. SUPER FRAGMENTED JOURNAL :3 I shud post moar, but I know I wont.

P.S I have more flu!!!! <3 I'm a man so it's MANFLU which is very very serious!! I need hugs and pawrubs to get over it :(

parents

Aug. 28th, 2009 | 10:41 am

So my parents came up to visit me for a couple of days. It's been a long long time since I've seen them. I didn't realise how much I've actually missed them until they got here. They've been through a lot of shit the past few months, but they're still chirpy and happy like always. It was really good to see them, and I almost cried when they left. Being away from them for so long really got me to appreciate how much they've done for me the past 20 years, I wish there was someway for me to show them how much they mean to me. They really treated me while they were here, took me and Stu out for a meals a couple of times, bought me some new jeans (since mine all have holes in or are wrecked at the ankles), all with money I know they don't really have. I really wanna go down there and visit them for a while, it'll be pretty tough since it'll probably be the last time I see the house before it's sold but it'll be worth it just to spend some more time with them when they need me the most. It was really good to see them again, though. I love them both so much.

Best/worst day of my life.

Aug. 4th, 2009 | 03:59 pm
mood: soresore

ignore any poor grammar / spelling in this post, i'm typing with one hand. no i'm not fapping. let me explain.

i went into manchester yesterday to see owen pallett aka final fantasy live. i met up with flint a few hours before to hang out and shop / drink coffee, flint went for a bus home and he had to run to catch it, i was following behind. a guy came from nowhere and pushed me to the ground, shouting 'fuck off' trying to start a fight or something, i had no idea what was going on, other than arm fucking hurts and i need to get away from this guy right now. i got up and ran, catching up with flint who had run ahead not noticing i'd been pushed over. the guy thankfully wasn't following me, soi said goodbye to flint and i walked around the bus-stop out of my way to avoid the guy, since he'd probably try doing something else if i went near him again. i managed to get away and back to birdie.

anyway, at first it just felt like a pulled muscle, so i didn't think anything of it, i couldn't move it much without it hurting. we went to the venue and it started to get worse. i asked for a bandage to make a sling from, and the medic guy strongly reccomended that I go see a doctor, but i couldn't miss this show, i've waited years to see him. opening guy came on and during his performance i had a massive panic attack because i started to lose the feeling in my fingers. after the guy had finished his set, there was a 10 minute switchover period, so i just went outside and calmed down. the feeling came back and i went into the final fantasy show. once he came out, the pain faded a lot, i was mesmerised by him, it was enthralling and i was literally squealing in joy (to myself)

anyway, after the show, we head home on the train, get in and i try going to bed. i'm in too much pain to sleep, it's pure agony to even move it... after calling nhs direct a couple of times, i let birdie pay for a taxi to the hospital (i wouldn't let him cause it would cost too much, but i gave in eventually). we got there, took about an hour for someone to see me, got it checked, took some painkillers and got it x-rayed. sat in the waiting room again for abour 3 hours waiting for the doc to see me. turns out my arm is broken at the elbow. awesome. i get a sling (they didn't cast it which sucks, i could do with one) and get a bus home, getting in at about 8:00-8:30 am, been awake for about 24 hours at this point. i've slept for 4 hours and here i am now.

also it was my right arm, so that pretty much fucks everything since i'm right handed :(

I got this in the mail today...



It's addressed to INDIE PAWS. How cool is that?

Inside was this:



A CD from a band called Polynya and for some reason they sent me a screen printing thing. I don't know why, but there you go! They asked me a few weeks ago for a mailing address since they wanted to send me a physical copy of their CD. I was like suuure :D

Now to actually listen to it. I have nooo idea what they're like. I've not even researched them :(

Confuzzled 2009

location: home
mood: artisticartistic
music: Medications

I attended Confuzzled this year with Flint, Roarey and of course Birdie. It was FUCKING AWESOME. Like seriously, I had so much fun there.. and I'm comparing this to MFF. I think it's mainly due to there being around 200-250 people max, you actually see the same people dozens of times each day, rather than hardly seeing the same face twice like at MFF.

I spent most of the weekend buzzing around the lobby chatting to people, getting drunk and having a really fucking great time.

Day one was the opening ceremony, chatting to people and getting used to the venue, which wasn't too big (excluding the floors with rooms), but I feel was a good thing since it kept people together in one place a lot of the time.

Day two had a few events to attend. I tried to get a go at Guitar hero to totally show off my skills with the game, but I couldn't even get close since it was sort of busy. I saw the fursuit olympics (furrylympics or whatever) which was kinda cool. I got given a piece of a big puzzle which fursuiters had to find from the audience, so that was pretty cool, though I gave up my piece pretty quick :(. The dealers den was somewhat of a letdown, there was only a hand-full of decent artists there, but I still did get a disgustingly gay and pawsome commission from milligramsmile who was one of the best artists there (he is very very good :o). I spent the rest of the night getting drunk, hugging everything in a suit/that moved and throwing plushies around and all kinda of groovy stuff. I actually went to the night dance, although only spent about 15-20 minutes in there. I danced like a crazy robot with Birdie and probably embarrassed him a lot but it was too much fun.

Day 3 was a bit slow, I think mainly since everyone was ultra tired/hungover from the night before. I felt really sick in the morning and the bus ride over was like a trip through hell, trying not to throw up. I wasn't hung-over, since I drunk lots of water the night before. I think it was some kind of anxiety sickness mixed with not eating much the past two days and a lack of sleep. But I'm fine now, it was just a pain having to sit around feeling like shit for most of the morning. I didn't really do any of the events today apart from the fursuit parade. It was really sunny and I was sweating throughout it, so I can't imagine how hot it must have been in-suit. It was a good laugh though, though someone in a horse suit tripped and fell down a big hole in the grass. He was alright, it was just a bit scary haha.

I got to know a few people quite well having chatted to them for a while. One of them asked who drew my badge, pointing to the one i drew for myself, which looks like this btw:


and he said he's seen my art before on FA I guess, which is a really weird / nice feeling. He actually later wanted to commission me after Birdie showed him some of the pics I brought with me in my sketchbook etc. I'm considering it, I ust don't have any confidence in my art :D We'll see though...

Overall it was a fantastic, fantastic weekend and I had sooo much fun. I'm 100% going next year, and if by then I'm still drawing/much better I'll probably get a spot in the dealers den since I was up to the same kind of standard as some of the artists there XD It was definitely a confidence boost. Also I'll get a room at the hotel there since holy shit it took so long to get there some mornings.

Anyways, I've probably written too much, so I'll wrap this up by saying thanks to Flint/Roarey for letting us spend the night at their place and if you read this and were there/spoke to me or whatever, thanks for making the weekend so awesomely awesome!

MUCH LOVE!!!! xoxoxoxo

Silent Hill 5

mood: shockedshocked

Birdie and I have been playing Silent Hill 5 together (him playing the action etc, me doing the puzzles (I'm smrt)) and we've finally beaten it today. Without spoiling anything, there's one part in the game which is the most disgusting, vile and horrifying moment I've ever witnessed in a video game. Fuck Manhunt games, they're nothing in comparison to this.

Vinyl Exchange purchases

Mar. 5th, 2009 | 12:48 pm
mood: bouncybouncy
music: STUFF

Yesterday I was in Manchester with birdiegryphon  visiting flintgf and we went to Vinyl Exchange. It's a fucking awesome record store. Every thing's soo cheap, I found a bunch of CDs I wanted, Grammatics promo stuff, I Was A Cub Scout (for £1) and I found the Sea Wolf EP, still sealed for 50p. Fifty fucking pence. They also had his album for 50p which Flint bought since I already had it, and he also got the EP, which means he got the entire Sea Wolf discography for £1, haha.

I noticed on the wall they were offering a 40 random CD album goodie bag for a whopping £4. So naturally I bought one.



Some of the stuff seems pretty cool, but there's some really funny shite in there too. I took some pics of the more lol-able ones: (hit the jump for piiix)

Read more...Collapse )



Spasmband? Wut.



A man walking barefoot across burning coals, what does this have to do with the music? (also you can't really tell here, but the image is all stretched and pixelated, lol)



Yo



This guy is more pimpin' and moar richer than the last guy. (Millionaire, of course.)



This one is more about the music on it than the cover. I was thinking the music would be some kinda electronica stuff, but turns out to be teen love pop shite. Ughh.

Overall it did have more interesting stuff than shite stuff, a handfull of them were even sealed still!



Oh, and I was surprised to find a promo version of an album I already own.



That's Menomena - Friend and Foe in case you didn't realise :D (one of my fav albums evarrr).

I say this every time I post here, but should use my LJ moar often. Ok bye.
