I do upload things but I'm currently a bit stuck with other shit in life so...
I do return llamas and try to keep up with comments, but anyway...
Have a music video for a change...
So!, where to start, right?
I know I had no updates in MONTHS and that’s unforgettable, but life goes on and finds a way (like Dr.Malcom would say) and you end up not uploading anything on Deviant (or anywhere else) for long months in a time where not posting what are you eating every 4 seconds and what are you doing every 2 seconds it’s considered more like an insult or a irrefutable proof that you are somehow an alien from outer space.
As you can imagine a lot of things have happened, not BAD things, just THINGS, which keep me a bit busy up and all things considered. So why not list them up since we’re already here?, I’ll be quick, I promise.
I got a new cat, we literally couldn’t come up with a better name, and since he’s tiny, his name it’s “Puki” (like a puki-fee doll?, sorry guys, but it’s a fun name and it was the only thing it came up to my mind, lol). He is (as “Loki”) an Oriental (short hair) male cat with “Siamese” (‘seal point’?) color scheme. He was born the same day as ‘Loki’ (my other oriental cat) but a couple years of difference so it’s currently a lovely and very hungry kitten.
I’m releasing a 2nd edition of my book, since the 1st edition it’s nearly sold out (think there are a couple copies left but not more than that so a 2nd run was needed). The new edition will have more pictures, more drawings (hope ‘Dolls for Trolls’ group of haters doesn’t accuse me of “stealing my own drawings”... -again-, LoL). And overall the cover has some extra features and it looks way better. So this will be the definitive Ver. for this book and if I ever need to reprint it a 3rd or 4th time, this will be it. - Now it’s time to take on the random things I have for my 2nd book (new one) and we will see where that leads in the end... funny I was the one who ended up writing books. From all people I've ever knew, I never though it will be "me". lol
Now to my personal life, I will rejoice to give more details but you know, TROLLS from the ‘pullip’ and BJD fandom from my own country bust my balls because they don’t like me (long lost reasons already explained a thousand times), so fuck them, private life was meant to be private right?, so this is the part where I diverse to ‘not so profound topics’ suck as...
Videogames ! ! ! [-*-SPOILERS AHEAD-*-], you have being warned:
Resident Evil 7 was pure shit for me, it delivered nothing of what Capcom promised, and though many people think “it was the best game evaaaa!”, it’s obvious for me, the main villain was a copy/paste from Alma (F.E.A.R.), the family was straight of a generic “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” Z-movie, and the game itself has almost no history by it’s own... and has almost no connection to the rest of the Resident evil Franchise, this is because I highly suspect this is a “reboot” (not a remake, not a new game all together, not ‘a change in direction’ and certainly NOT ‘a back to RE origins of suspense’);
Another game was Uncharted 4, and I will resume the entire experience as “the developers got married and try to justify their pitiful wife’s and kids by make one of the coolest main characters out there (Nathan Drake) get married and retired with a (god know why) super UGLY daughter”, ...just to put a bit of ‘extra dirt’ upon Nathan coffin (I mean, he could have had a good looking daughter, like him and his wife, I don’t know why the daughter it’s so fucking UGLY if their dads are a living representation of magazine models, but there you go...). This is like imagine Jack Sparrow (from POTC) getting actually married, leaving the pirate life and having kids with some “super kick ass woman” (because developers want to make sure they are super happy about their wife’s representing them as a blond version of Terminator 2 Sarah Connor). I had played Rise of the Tomb Raider, and I HATE Lara since the 90’s, and even so, it was far better game than Uncharted 4, at least Lara doesn’t get married and have kids at the end, the whole point of having this “Indiana Jones” sort of characters it’s to see them as eternal icons of never-ending coolness, representing that hero we will never be, NOT “representing the abridge guy we all are”, if we want real life, we don’t play videogames;
Another game, DeuxEx Mankind Divided...... it’s all in plain daylight. I can ignore all other things about the game, but the daylight brings everything down to “it sucks”. I have more fun moving on the sewers and inside buildings because I can actually forget there is SUN outside. ALL THE FUCKING TIME. And I really do love Adam J. as a character, that is the only reason I keep playing this game;
And I know it’s not a game per se’ but I finally saw the “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV” movie (haven’t played the game, I kinda’ hate Noctis now so...), and the movie was (suprisingly) good even for someone who have never played the game, now, having said this, it makes a awesome job making you hate the main character of the game (“Prince Noctis”) since he comes as a spoiles brat that complains about problems that hold no grip compared to the rest of the fucking planet problems (on that planet that is). Plus, the main character of the movie (‘Nyx Ulric’) is portrayed by ‘Aaron Paul’, and I fucking loved “Jesse Pinkman” [Breaking Bad], so watching the guy give his life so “little prince noctis” can get a car ride with friends it’s like a serious kick on everyone’s balls. I guest I’ll keep forever waiting for the Final Fantasy VII REMAKE because I kinda’ like Cloud and he’s not insufferable and he actually have some serious shit problems (unlike Noctis) and on top of that, all FFVII characters are simply AWESOME BITCHES!;
So that was pretty much it, I did downloaded and played a ton of PSN free or “digital only” games and some are ‘awesomely good’, so if you see a game for cheap on promotional time (or free), give it a chance. You might be surprised by it. - I hate X-box because I hate Online-Multiplayer (and consoles in general that melt because ‘Bill’ wanted to reduce costs), and I hate Nintendo because I think they can do a lot better, and they just don’t bother since they’re making money out of all the people who, regardlessly of their non existent efforts, keeps on buying their shit. So PlayStation it’s the only option I find “good” nowadays (-not counting PC as a console because computers and mobile phones/tablets are not consoles, period-) and I do have some shit to say about Sony, but not as many as I have to say from all the other ones so...
Now talking about movies, I’m a bit lost on the Marvel “cinematic universe”, so I should get back on track before ‘Thor 3’ comes out, but I’m expecting ‘Transformers (5) The Last Knight’ the most, why?, well... because for once megatron looks like Megatron and has a face..? (and it also reminds me a lot of TF-Prime Megatron design, and that’s badass), and though I’m not super exited about the whole “girl kids power” shit that stink to Disney Channel, as I did with all previous Michel Bay TF movies, I’m willing to ignore the flaws and get the good parts, like Anthony Hopkins, because EVERYTHING it’s better with him on it. - I still haven’t watched ‘Resident Evil the Final Chapter’ (will fix that soon though), but I heard it didn’t got any good reviews, but considering the entire live action franchise sucks, I’m rather only exited for the new (-game universe based-) CGI motion picture “Biohazard: Vendetta” (and the fact that Glenn Arias remind me of Albert Wesker does help...), rather than RE Final chapter. - I did waste my time on a long list of forgettable horror movies. But I also did discover some cool pictures like “The Autopsy of Jane Doe”, or “As Above So Below”, even the new “Blair Witch” movie (#3, direct sequel to the 1st one) has it’s charm... also, “Flight 7500” only roved me that Ryan Kwanten has a serious shit problem when it comes to haunted dolls in every fucking movie he’s in *(‘Dead Silence’ - Jamie Ashen).
So not going to bother anyone anymore over now with this long ass journal, pardon my language, I’m a sailor without the ship, and be cool, c’ya soon!
Linkin Park has died. RIP LP. We will forever treasure Chester's screams and Mike's rapping sounds, all the beats and instrumental clash, and we promise not ever let the "soft-emo-pop-disney-princess-Kiiara-shit" sound you got now (2017) be your ultimate legacy. You will be foreber in our hearts Linkin Park.
Do any of your dolls have a nickname? Is it one they like, or do they dislike it? Who gave it to them?- Star usually call Max “the old guy” or “the old men”, and Doc nickname Max sometimes as “the warrior”. But Max doesn’t know they called him nicknames.
So YES!, Happy new year! I know it’s batshit late, and we are almost on Jan 2nd, but what tha’ hell!, Happy New year anyway!
This 2017 I’ll be getting the 2nd edition of my book so I better work fast because of the deadline I have to deliver the additional material, more pictures and drawings and things I wasn’t able to include the 1st run cos’ of the lack of time...So that’s my first priority this new year and then we will see what the world brings
Not gonna' say what I got for X-Mas... but I got ball jointed dolls.
(and a fashion doll, and some Transformers toys, and two PlayStation-4 games from my dear friends <3 lol, and a couple bucks because yes, there is always a family member who gives you money because they have no idea what to do with it....so...guessing it will be "doll money" too, either for printing books or buying new dolls)
So something's telling me the 2nd book it's gonna have some new characters...
Please don't forget this upcoming next year (2017) I'll be presenting my "1st book (2nd edition) +plus" on the "International Book Fair", at "Buenos Airess", Argentina. - Of course it's the 1st BJD themed book in my country. Over 400 pages and illustrations inside all made by me...
I'm actually seriously considering making a raffle or a giveaway of some sort for the "second edition" (”2nd run”/”2nd print”) of the 1st book. - Like 'win a BJD' sorta' thing..?, ...I know this dolls are extremely rare and the prices for the cheapest company (or even a recast) can go BANANAS on the Argentina market "just because", so many people end up not having the chance to get a BJ-Doll by their own means, and I have so many of them by now... I think I'll have to sit and think what I'll do and how. But I'm totally in for it, the only downside it's if the doll it's won by some asshole who will instantly put it on sale for profit on the market... I would really hate for that to happen. ...guest I'll have to take measures to prevent it.
And finally, I know I promise ya' all this last (current?) year 2016 I will be focusing on the English translation but I got trapped by the 2nd book and it's development rather than just go over the 1st one again. It's still something I will do (at one point or the other), but might not be as quickly as anticipated. Sorry. Totally gonna’ work on that one... :/
Oh!, and almost forgot!, I also got another NECA Alien for my "alien rainbow", now I'm waiting for the green one that glows in the dark and some other pre-orders... but I'm missing a ""really blue"" Alien on my rainbow (let's hope the next movie brings more colors and designs) and a really black alien (I don't want to repeat the same model, so I'm not getting the "Genocide black warrior" since I already have the red one), I felt totally tempted to buy an Albino alien and dye him hot-pink... but this things might be cheap on the US, but are crazy expensive here on Argentina, and I'm not sure about going the way of super hot colors because I know there is NO TURNING BACK once you get FLUO.
So that's all for now, do you guys think I should do a a raffle or a giveaway for a bjd? if so, any ideas?, I'll take replies by inbox if you don't want to post them here (some of my readers are just shy, I know... lol)
Bien, no voy a tomar demasiado de sus tiempos. Yo vivo en Argentina (es el sur de Sudamérica), por si no lo saben aquí es verano y hace un calor tropical que no es nada grato (en especial con las subas de las tarifas de la luz/electricidad como un %400 o %500 porciento y un servicio que sigue siendo deficiente y que te garantiza pasarla a oscuras y sin siquiera un ventilador a mano). - Pero no es eso de lo que vine a hablarles. - Generalmente no me importa demasiado la navidad mas allá de los regalos y la fanfarrea de dichas festividades (aun teniendo en cuenta que este Diciembre del 2016 fue el año con menos espíritu navideño que vi en décadas). - Me encanta realizar regalos (y como a cualquiera, también recibirlos). - Este año fue el primer año de un gobierno que prometía grandes cosas, cambios para mejor, y yo, en lo personal, siento que no tan solo no han cumplido sino que la calidad de vida de todos los que conozco bajo tanto que si quisiera explicarlo no podría. Le apostaron a la esperanza, y la esperanza nos arrojo como bolsa de ropa sucia por una escalera... a un sótano frío, donde quedamos tirados. Olvidados. Nosotros, la clase media, la clase trabajadora, la clase que esta navidad no descorchara champagne ni comerá medio lechón asado con canapés de caviar. La clase que no tiene propiedades en Puerto Madero, pero muchos fallan en ver que es la espina dorsal de toda la sociedad en su conjunto, porque todo rey y toda corte de nobles, necesitan que la clase media trabaje y les lave las prendas y les mantenga el hermoso castillo donde viven. - A causa de esto vi a muchísimas personas luchando para comprar un regalo a sus hijos así fuera de un valor mínimo. Y no pasa por ser materialista o no, pasa porque para los más jóvenes, Navidad tiene que ser una época de alegría, no de clichés en películas familiares de otro país donde te dicen que “podes vivir pobre y abajo del puente pero eres feliz porque navidad es estar con tus seres queridos”, no, no, así no funciona el mundo. Los niños merecen un regalo, y uno que les guste, y los padres no pueden dárselos. No porque no quieran, sino porque no tienen el dinero. ¿Y saben porque no tienen el dinero?, porque tuvimos uno de los peores años en materia económica que recuerdo en mis 34 años de vida, lo cual es mucho. MUCHO. - Así que esta navidad, y teniendo en cuenta que no soy de ninguna religión en particular, tengo un solo deseo, que a ningún chico le falte un juguete. Y no hablo de África u de lugares exóticos que salen en la Nacional Geographic, no, no, hablo del nene o nena que vive al lado tuyo, el que no va a recibir ninguna ayuda de nadie porque según la sociedad “esta lo suficientemente bien como para que, aun estando mal, nadie le de una mano”. Porque es así, nos ocupamos de los enfermos en los hospitales, les regalamos cosas a los de países lejanos, incluso le donamos a las villas miserias u asentamientos precarios, pero al pobre pibe clase media que este año va a abrir con suerte una pelotita de golf que el padre encontró en la oficina, a ese, jamás le damos ni la hora porque “es clase media, y va a estar bien”. Es hora de que los tarados mentales se den cuenta de que “ser clase media” generalmente significa pasarla mal, y no que “zafamos”, porque las clases mas bajas tienen todos los subsidios y donaciones, las clases mas altas no necesitan nada porque se van de viaje a la otra punta del mundo, pero y las clases medias que..? - No es mucho pedirle al mundo un juguetito debajo de cada árbol de las personas que mas estudian y mas trabajan en esta (y cualquier) sociedad ¿no..?, si, seguramente habrá otros en peores condiciones (siempre los hay), pero teniendo en cuenta que un solo ser humano no puede ocuparse del mundo entero, pues entonces me ocupare de los que veo aquí a mi lado. - En lo personal tuve la suerte de saberla remar todo este 2016, porque estoy curtida de los “desastres económicos” en mi país cuando asumen presidentes que uno no sabe si son muy tontos o muy inteligentes (para su propia conveniencia). - Pero estas son fiestas negras... para muchos mas que antes. Gente que se desloma trabajando y que vive en un área gris a la que nadie ayuda. - Esta navidad, si vas a donar algo, si vas a ayudar a alguien, aunque sea solo por este año, elige a alguien de la clase media, que son seres humanos también... Gracias y Feliz Navidad.
I want to assure everyone out there I will address the subject of a specific guide on how to make your own BJD but you guys need to give me time, ok? Easies said than dome as they say, I started writing the books for my enjoyment and I still do it for that reason, I promise future parts of the book saga will be detailed and step by step on how to make dolls at home, but that requires a different type of work than tales and novels, is like spaghetti and lasagna, they’re both technically “pasta”, but it’s not the same.
I’m almost out of books to sell too, didn’t print too many due to my budget but I think there is 2 on different comic/book stores and then I should call the Editorial to confirm if they have any left and if they do how many of them but I think they won’t be many since I’ve being asking them to hand me over some extra books cos’ I already had them sold to different costumers (or is it “readers”?, I never know ). So next time will be a digital version (spanish) and so far the extent of the story will be covered into at least 3 books. I don’t plan to publish more since I think the span of 3 books it’s just the right of pages I need for closing the entire story/saga.
I hope during the times I have the time and inspiration to make some more drawings about the characters and at very least slowly translate to my very primitive English some of the stories/pages from the 1st book. But I’m not making any promises I can’t keep right?
Agradecemos muchísimo a todos los que se acercaron al stand esta Feria Internacional del Libro y ojalá estén disfrutando de la historia!
