Just a simple 'How To' on an OCR technique for anyone who might be interested. let me know if you have suggestions for simpler ways to do this -
Something of an Update.Life seems to get worse for me the harder I try to correct my issues, whether it's suffering the horrid side-effects of a medication regimen in an attempt to sort out what meds will actually work for my mental health issues, suffering the fallout of the instructions of my sleep doctor in a doomed-to-fail attempt to correct my sleep patterns, or just generally having to wake up every 'day' and muster the strength of will it takes to face the reality that I really have no future and nothing to actually live for. My love of music is all but dead and has been for over a year now, ever since I packed away all my musical equipment after parting ways with someone with whom I fell in love. My love of art seems to be dying as well. I haven't been to the local art center in I don't know how long and I haven't been able to muster the will to paint for at least four months. In fact, all I've managed to do of late, art-wise, is draw some practice sketches from an instructional book I found at a boo
Prose, November 9th, 2017Am I dying...or am I already dead...? Is that the reason I feel so numb, cut off...so emotionally disconnected from the world around me...? It this merely my body remaining in motion until the proper time comes to drop and become one with the dirt and worms…? Is that the reason I shy away from boredom but have very little will or desire to be anything substantial...because I am already, effectively...dead…?
What will the next four or five decades really be worth if my will to be...anything...is permanently buried in the past…? I can know there is a future ahead, and I can know I will ‘live’ to see it but I doubt very much I will have any serious connection to it or a substantial role in it. An anomaly...that’s my fate...nothing more than an anomaly...sucking up resources until the day I drop… A meager leech taking more than I can possibly give because basic survival is the only instinct I have left...
What do I really love…? What can I re

A Moment of Poetic Inspiration 7-9-2017My arms feel heavy, as if they have borne a great weight and must now rest. Yet there has been no weight and rest aplenty. The ear hears the sweet harmony of ten-thousand maniacs as I despair at this disconnect from reality. I can only manage a minute or two, a dozen brush strokes at the most. Work is laborious despite the relative ease of it all. And not only in front of the canvas. Showers become impossible as well. Arms and legs struggle under their own weight as I attempt to wash away the grime of the tedious hours, grime that comes so cheap. I struggle to scrub the itch away as upon my head I spread an even cheaper grime. Will it ever truly fade, this itch...? Will I ever beach this disconnect, bridge this divide that leaves me as a museum piece, motionless and hardly regarded as the world moves past, ever faster, increasingly disinterested? Is there any hope for the future...? If there is, it keeps silent in my company, so silent as if to scream silence into my brain; quietly lau
5 Years - What Will The Scraps of Tomorrow Bring?This is just a selection of lesser pieces from my scrapbook that I've posted here on dA in the past five years. I'm feeling as though I'm entering a more productive phase thanks to the medication but I don't yet know what will be posted in the coming months. I do hope to have at least three new BIG pieces done by years' end though. For now, enjoy these almost arts...
I only joined dA in the first place to see more of the sexy art of :icongb2k: but my love of art has sustained me through these five years, through all the trials and errors and all the ups and downs my life has seen, and especially through the nausea that caused me to give up on that OTHER social network that caused so much hassle over the minutes and seconds during which I endured its loathsome effect on my life and society...
That said, my thanks to all my wonderful dA cohorts for a great roller-coaster of five years, but especially let me recognize :iconsambeawesome: :iconcanankk: :iconpitnerd: :icononeeyedneko: :i
New Tee.Had to replace a tshirt lately so I opted for another design by my compatriot :iconsambeawesome:
Though it's a chibi, I make exceptions for the 'no cute' rule when it's something for which I have interest...
Fuck Republicans, Fuck ConservativesSo I've just spit a fair amount of well deserved venom at my 'elected' representatives in D.C. - Chuck Grassley, David Young, and absolutely least, the bread bag bitch herself, Joni Ernst. Hope I get a nice, polite but secretly condescending form letter back that basically ignores my concerns as a voter...

"You and your slimeball cronies in Washington have been itching for a chance to swing your political dicks in the direction needed to remove the best piece of healthcare legislation ever in the history of the U.S. and you deserve every bit of venom coming your way for it. It's bad enough that Governor Dumb-stad screwed the pooch with his idiotic Medicaid privatization plan in the first place, but now you fuckers are going to screw over even more Iowans, who have benefited for the first time ever with the provisions of the ACA, than you liars purport to relieve with whatever stool sample it is that manages to get regurg

Gimme Drawing Ideas I'd like to get back into making full on story illustrations for my NextGen stuff, not just messy doodles. So I'm asking you guys to help me come up with ideas! Perhaps there's something in the story I brought up once or twice but never explored in depth that you'd like to see. Perhaps you'd like to see a favorite Pandoraverse character of yours get explored more. Or maybe parent-child interactions? Friend interactions? Shipping? Drama? Slice of life? Oh and if you could, please be as specific as you can, for example, "I'd love to see how X character got their cutie mark", stuff like that. You can propose a new shipping, bit of headcanon, drama....heck if you sell me on a cool idea you can bet your patootie I'll prolly draw it at some point. Ya'll have the floor, tell me what you'd like to see from me!
also i hope this goes without saying but please don't ask me to draw your ocs
Alright, revealing the next reviewOkay, since it has been awhile since the last time that I posted a review - three weeks at this time - I thought that I'd reveal the next reviewer. It's coming up soon. If you're wondering if it's the big secret thing I was planning; no, that kind of fell through. It sucks, but sometimes that happens. Ideas don't always pan out. There's not much you can do about that. When you've got a ton of ideas. Not all of them are going to work out. I don't want to spoil exactly what that was, as I might be able to refine that idea later on.
So... the next animated atrocities review will be...
Fame and Misfortune... yes, that one from Friendship is Magic season seven.
Like Legend of Korra, this is another thing that I debated long and hard about wanting to review. Even ignoring that it's a little awkward going back to Friendship is Magic with a negative review after so long, I understand that this is another episode that's... a little controversial within the community. As in,
