Oh my god. Oh. My. God. Fuck some Photoshop. That took way too goddamn long and I need to remember to like, move. And take breaks. Which is never, ever going to happen, but I can dream.

I'm pretty sure my neck and shoulders have fused together, and various parts of my anatomy keep making ominous crunching sounds when I move, but HA. DONE. SHA-BAM. I want a neck massage.

Red.


Which accompanies this one. )

For the Red Riding Hood chapter of [livejournal.com profile] manipulant's Into The Woods. (An EXTREMELY LOOSE interpretation, I might add.)

There's a slightly brighter version here at my Tumblr. I like the way the brighter red makes it pop more, but in terms of this being a piece for ITW we decided on the darker version, since it fits the mood of the story better.

And holy crap, thank you SO MUCH [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve and [livejournal.com profile] manipulant for the handholding tonight. Handholding and opinions and suggestions and general patience. ♥ ♥ ♥ There is no way in hell I would've sat still long enough to finish this otherwise.

Hey, all you music-types (and everyone else)!

So this morning, [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve and I were awoken by tweets from one of the bands we love, Portugal. The Man (@portugaltheman), announcing that ALL OF THEIR STUFF. ALL OF IT. EVERYTHING. EVERY. FUCKING. THING. had been stolen, including their van and trailer, after they played Lollapalooza last night. They've spent pretty much all day freaking out all over Twitter and it's pretty nauseating what was taken.



The full list of lost equipment can be viewed here, complete with a bunch of serial numbers.
And a non-Twitter version here.

A description of the van can be found here.

And an incentive by the manufacturing company of one of their bass amps can be found here.

[livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve's base tweet for the pawnshop spreadsheet link is here.

So any of you with Twitter accounts? If you'd like to retweet the above tweets, as well as anything else relating to the event you'd like, just to raise awareness and spread the word? That would be AMAZING.

I am offering stupidcomic doodles to anyone who wants to get in on this, even just an RT or two.

For those of you feeling remarkably ambitious, [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve has compiled an open google doc dividing and cataloging efforts to call local area pawn/music shops to provide the establishments with info (we're hoping most have email addresses we can forward the list of serial #'s to). Even if you don't wanna deal with this, maybe you know someone who does, or someone on your Twitter feed will.

If you're super-awkward with phone stuff like I am, we recommend that if you do claim a pawn shop cluster, just use the, "My friend's band had all of their stuff stolen after they played Lolla on Sunday night, do you have an email address we could forward the serial numbers/descriptions to?" script.

OH AND we're also canvassing Craigslist (Chicago and the surrounding areas including Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan as well as the Chicago 'burbs like Evanston and Glenview etc) and eBay for the items, which is another quick way you could take a minute to help, if you're so inclined.

If you don't already have it, I'm @lllookalive on Twitter, and [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve is @okrysmastree.

I've already spammed Patrick Stump (@patrickstump), the Mountain Goats (@mountain_goats with GREAT results ♥ ♥ John Darnielle ♥ &hearts), Adam Siska (@siskybusiness), Bill Beckett (@billbeckett), FBR's street team (@fbrstreetteam including emailing them), Gatsbys American Dream (@gatsbysamerican), and Man Without Wax (@manwithoutwax) with all of this, but KEEP IT GOING! Their accounts are huge, they can handle the spam and maybe that way some of the bigger ones'll see it. Plus, if you think of anyone else who might give a crap. I've just been focusing mostly on local musicians for the Chicago area so far, with the exception of the Mountain Goats, but the more publicity the better.

FBR's street team email is erick@fueledbyramen.com, in case you're inspired.

And now, because I know you're all like WHO THE SHIT IS THIS BAND AND WHY DO I CARE? Honestly, even if I didn't like them this would still have me up in arms. Fucking klepto assholes.
But even if you don't have a Twitter, don't want to deal with all this viral shit, you can still go listen to some fucking awesome music:
This is their YouTube channel.
And in following with events, and also one of my all-time favorites of their stuff, try Chicago on for size.

And, because we are fabulous, we're making this a drinking game. Shot of tequila for ever successful email address! GO GO GO!

(and I wasn't kidding about those stupidcomics, guys I take requests!~)

You guys are amazing, and even if you don't have time to deal with this, thanks for being you. My flist is the BEST flist.

ETA
GABE SAPORTA. GABRIEL. FUCKING. SAPORTA. JUST RT'D AND REPLIED.
Well holy fucking shit.

They just tweeted that the van and trailer were recovered, though they're empty and not sure what condition either are in. Still, it's a lead.

Oh my god, this weekend has been insane, art-wise.

[livejournal.com profile] manipulant IS AMAZING. I HOPE EVERYBODY IS AWARE OF THIS. (For many, MANY reasons including the one listed here, I feel it's necessary to point out.)
She made me an ALL-CAPS promo post on her journal and I've been getting friends requests and comments and

HI, HI NEW PEOPLE! Welcome to the party! Feel free to comment, say hi, spam me anything but Justin Bieber OH MY GOD some people think they're soooooo funny, don't be shy. Thrilled to have you!~

Now for the stuff you actually might care about.



Maybe I'm aging, I like how that sounds. )

Which brings me to

HELLO. I AM NOW ON TUMBLR!~

I created it this afternoon and have spent all day bombing it. I've never actually used Tumblr EVER, okay, so bear with me a little if I'm blundering around like a moron over there. For that matter if I do something stupid or whatever, let me know over here, okay? So I can fix it? [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve spent most of today on Twitter with me, walking me through it and barely avoiding a couple major meltdowns when I couldn't figure out (still can't) how to reply via reblog. Fucking kill me, I swear. I'd rather you correct me than just continue looking like an idiot.

A side note to that, I've got Vices & Virtues: It Came queued up to post one-a-day for the next week or so, starting today. In case anyone's wondering why only Ready To Go is up there so far.

Finally, OH MY GOD, EVERYBODY, YOU ARE ARE SUCH MAGNIFICENT ENABLERS. YOU'RE WONDERFUL.
Never stop.
lllookalive: ([MCR] x-o-x-o-X-O-X-O!)



Ugh, this has taken me long enough.

Hey, [livejournal.com profile] manipulant, I hope you love me with all of your bourbon heart, okay?

You throw the attic window open and I throw myself all around you )

Bigger, shinier versions here, at my Blogspot.
...Maybe someday I'll even have followers. And like. triple-digit pageviews. Lol.

lllookalive: ([Beckett] A very specific kind of plague)
Apparently the world was supposed to end this evening? I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but I guess the rapture's running late, so this seems like as good a time as any to harass LJ.




WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL BITCHFACE PARTY POST.

Bring the spam. Make yourself at home.

This is in no way limited to DD/FBR.


You wanna know what I love? )

Starting out with the classics...
lllookalive: ([PATD] This mirror isn't big enough)
So pretty much [livejournal.com profile] reni_days rocks my world.

This has been gestating for like, a week or so, after a conversation we had about Brendon Urie and his truly remarkable use of subtlety in metaphor. By which we mean, his utter inability to engage it.

It was worth a try, right?


Don't get it? This might help.
Oh no, I seem to have forgotten my bathing suit. Oh, my goodness. You're so wet.
lllookalive: ([misc] Dream big.)



ARTSPAM! 8D

Rise if you're sleeping, stay awake. We are young supernovas and the heat's about to break. Drift through the streets, walk between the cars. Newborn sons and daughters spat forth from distant stars. )

And a SUPER-AMAZING bonus piece that kept me half an hour late at work today. That's right, because today is May 4th and I work on the psych ward staffed by a bunch of Star Wars nuts, I got paid like, $7 to do this. Well. Okay. Do this and then bum around a bunch basking in my own glory, teasing Denise and figuring out my Sith name. Whatever. /hands/
Just call me Raphael of the white board, baby. )

So first there was this:



And then there was this:



Now, who the hell would I be to disappoint?






(Yeah, I'm aware that Spencer is the one who ends up in the actual Lederhosen, sorry. The universe's need for a cartoon of Brendon Urie in Lederhosen just felt worth the artistic liberty.)

And this is what the inside of my head looks like right now. )

Oh, and-

1. If you're totally over this shit and would like a little less spam on your flist, just let me know. Total amnesty, no hard feelings, I'll just take you off the filter. ♥

2. On the other hand, if you think this shit is supermegafoxyawesomehot and want to bare witness to a version of anything (or everything, including the bigger stuff) that isn't some lameass teeny-weenie LJ image, again, lemme know. I can just email them to you or something. This especially goes for those people whose, uh, original material is being viciously abused here by me and my apparent newfound penchant for creative liberty. I'm just posting under a filter so I don't make the civilians on my flist hate me, I pretty much don't care if my stuff gets reposted, just so long as you credit and let me know so I can go and bask in the epic validation this provides.
Holy shit, guys, 70 fucking comments on that first one? ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


...I need to get off my ass and make a website or something already. For serious.
