conveniently made to forget

i re-read the entire 18 volumes of monster today because i was procrastinating going to shower. the short bit with martin was still the greatest bit of the series, and that is why he's my second favorite character in monster. grimmer still takes the top spot. though, i couldn't help but wonder why my favorite characters tend to die in the story.

eva's conversation with dr. reichwein in chapter 161 is still by far my most favorite.

"people are strange things... sadness fades away with time, and only the enjoyable memories remain. we're built so conveniently, aren't we?"
"that's how we survive."

currently on break from inking page 3 of the gintama comics, and holy hell don't i need an assistant. i need someone who can draw backgrounds and not complain about drawing them. surely i can do them myself, but the process tends to be profane, and at this moment i'm making good use of the punching bag that my sister's friend got her for christmas.

i wonder, too. why would anyone give my sister a punching bag? has she been beating up boys?

recently i notice that when i make plans to go out with people, there is this slight, late hesitation after the plan's been set, and the first thing that always comes to mind is "maybe i should just stay home." this usually strikes me after the plan's been set, and i don't like flaking out, so i usually proceed with the going out. strange thing is, after i come back home, i'll always feel happy and glad that i end up not canceling the plan. it's like i'm conveniently made to enjoy whatever situation i end up getting involved in. i just noticed this recently, but i realized that it has always been this. does this mean i'm getting more and more anti-social? or am i just the kind of person who doesn't usually get excited over an upcoming plan or event?

you tell me.

bloody christmas cards

i finished writing addresses on the envelopes of 42 people who wanted free reborn prints, including my return address.

and i realized that now i will have to lick 42 envelopes. bloody hell.

home shweet home?

the thing i missed about home is not really the good food. while it is true that the food is good, the goods itself is scarce. it might be hard to imagine being home and not finding anything to eat, but most of the time, that's the case here.

the thing i missed about home is rather the existence of clean spoon. while this seems trivial, my roommate and i only have ONE spoon in the apartment in irvine and when none of us feels like doing dishes, eating became quite a problem. sometimes i even had to resort to eating with forks, because it seems like we have one spoon and a million forks. if the forks are female and the spoon is male, i have to say that it's one helluva happy spoon. however, if the forks are male and the spoon is female... poor spoon.

and then, sometimes we even run out of clean forks. it makes me feel rather uneasy to see that a million forks can all be dirty. when this happens and none of us feels like washing dishes, i had to resort to eating with my fingers like back in indo, or just drinking soup.

my laziness is rather amusing.

i'm giving away my AX reborn prints for christmas. i thought it would be nice to make people happy, especially the ones who like my drawings.

and then i realized that i have to write addresses on forty-two envelopes and regretted my decision immediately. at a time like this, an ipplepen, or simply just five arms, would really come in handy.

for mkage@LJ for the awesomely vulgar conversations we've had the past few weeks, as well as sending me her recorded karaoke session in mp3. good blackmail material, i say. =D

for tsubasa_gaki@LJ for the surprise of a box of home-made christmas cookies sent all the way from the land of canadia. they came at the perfect time too, because i was entirely out of munchies.

for tachigonaoki@LJ for the panda socks and the endless gifts she has spoiled me with. a pink shirt, a panda toy, a panda beanie, einstein plushie, taking care of dinner reservations at AX, a pair of panda socks, etc., etc.

for conor mooney for being an awesome editor and always being there whenever i need an input.

that is SANJAY the uglier, hairier sanji. i hope he gives you nightmare. he's certainly going to give me nightmares.

for shiroro for always putting up with the stupid shit i say, and for always inspiring me to draw things that are hazardous to human eyes.

yes, gintoki and madao are in chopper cosplay. and poor hata ouji, it seems like his sole purpose of existence in the series is just so that everyone can yank the living shit out of his antenna.

for SW for being my partner-in-crime in creating visual acid that burns eyes thoroughly, slowly, and painfully. i would never be this far down in the abyss if it weren't for you.

and yes, kondou is most certainly humping the christmas tree, even after he's passed out. yamazaki was actually really fun to draw, and i simply could not resist including typical gintama items such as a roll of toilet paper and a bottle of mayo.

angry brits

british football commentators are always so funny, especially when they're angry towards one of the players. currently watching liverpool vs manchester united, in which the dominant scousers are being stunned by tevez's tap in, which gave united a 1-0 lead. apparently pool's dirk kuyt has been entirely ineffective, and the angry british commentator made his feeling explicitly clear.

20 min: Typically rubbish control from Kuyt when in a good position on the edge of the box. 11 million poundsterlings... scored some great premier league goals this season though...

58 min: Kuyt has time to pick out a pass from the right. He swings over a superb cross which picks out the guy in the second row wearing a santa hat. 11 million poundsterlings. Kuyt. Waste of space.

66 min: Time for a change for Liverpool -- but not Crouch! Harry Kewell is replaced by Ryan Babel and somehow Kuyt is STILL on.

70 min: A challenging ball from the left goes through the box and lands for Kuyt!!!

70 min: Utterly pathetic attempt. No confidence or conviction, and the ball bobbles to Van Der Sar. If he'd really attacked that ball it was a decent chance. He didn't. Get him off.

74 min: WAHAY! Rafa's finally seen it! Off comes the "legend" Kuyt and on comes Crouch to huge cheers.

poor dutchman.

a bucketful of random

i want to try to get back into the habit of posting actual entries to this blog, and by entries i mean stuff you can actually read and not just doodles.

thursday was a day filled with random surprises. i woke up at noon and started grading about 200 final exams, but since i had received a bachelor's degree in procrastination, i did not really get anything done. by thursday night, i was only done with about 1/4 of the exams.

and i still had about 150 exams more to go.

it was probably a good idea to scatter the exam papers all over my bed. that way i would not be tempted to just flop and not wake up until friday.

plenty thanks to aby and shiro for the surprise birthday present. aby got me a pair of panda socks, which fits my feet really well, and shiro got me a colorful mug that says CAFFEINE: BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS. the mug was bloody huge that it can fit twice the coffee dose i usually have per day.

for those who are curious, i did try filling up the mug with coffee and drinking the whole thing in one sitting. i turned a bit jittery afterwards and decided to not use the mug for coffee, ever.

next to the mug is a box of christmas cookies that i randomly received on thursday. i felt really special because the cookies were made personally by tsuba and was sent from alberta, canada. one of these days i will go to alberta to get a taste of her awesome cooking.

tsuba's special christmas cookies kept me companied all night while grading. by 4am, there was only one cookie left.

i received 2 early christmas card. 1 from tsuba that came with the cookies, and one more from leha.

i don't know if it was intentional, but leha sent me two identical cards. one with writings on it, and one blank. maybe i should be cheap and send the extra card back to her.

around midnight on thursday, stephanie randomly called me and asked if i wanted to get some food. since she went with me on tuesday on my midnight donut run, i thought it's only fair that i return the favor. it was an impulsive decision, but i ended up going to alerto's with her to get some tacos.

two very bright shooting stars split the sky on our way there.

i did not hear any news about there being a shower that night, but 2 shooting stars within the span of 5 minutes was plenty evidence that there might be some sort of shower going on, so we took our tacos and headed down newport coast to stargaze. it was great to finally have someone to go with me to newport coast to look at stars because at night that place is quite creepy, and the lack of street lights certainly did not help. apparently for stephanie, that was her first time seeing shooting stars, so she got excited and unleashed her inner dorkiness.

we saw about seven more stars as i ate my hulk taco and she her enchiladas. that made my night, even though i had to grade about 150 exams when i got back. i finished grading around 7 in the morning and flopped happily.

bloody constants

an e^x and a constant walked into a cave. the cave was dark and scary. out of nowhere, a derivative operator jumped out . the constant was frightened and yelled out "OH NO. I'M GONNA BE ANNIHILATED!" but e^x smiled and calmed the constant down, he said, "don't worry. i'm e^x." so, feeling confident, e^x walked up to the derivative operator and said, "hi, i'm e^x."

the derivative operator replied with a grin, "hi, i'm d/dy."

i laughed way too hard at that.

life imitates art

if you look up at the daytime sky in irvine, it looks like whoever controls nature just got his hands on a YR82 copic sketch marker and is testing it out with an enthusiasm of a twelve-year old when he finds out that internet is for free pr0n.

on a side note, i found out what pen pressure on my tablet is good for.

tC is for total CUCKOO

finally something i will be paying for myself. i will definitely be missing the hum of my 98 corolla, and will forever remember and cherish the memories of all the good, bad, and stupid things i've done with it.

phallic, eh?

i watched mr. bean's holiday a few weeks ago and was reminded why bean was one of my favorite shows when i was little. if you did not like the first mr. bean movie, like myself, check this one out. i went to see this one expecting another awful movie like the first, but left the theater satisfied and still laughing at the scene where he got stuck inside a wooden hut.

and then, a few days ago, chang sent me johnny english. i remember watching this movie and was not too impressed by it, but re-watching it made it so much better, especially after i had forgotten most of what's going on in that movie, even the fact that natalie imbruglia was in it and that she was awfully beautiful.

one thing i've been paying close attention to lately, is movie soundtrack. johnny english surprisingly had a pretty good soundtrack, but among the seven songs that i like from the soundtrack album, the two that are worth mentioning are the following:

1. robbie williams - man for all seasons

2. abba - does your mother know

read the lyrics, you might find them as amusing as i did.

robbie williams included two sexual innuendo in the lyrics: one was very obvious, "Send the villains to Hades, a hit with the ladies, // a stallion, in the sack." but the other was one subtle enough that i didn't notice until i paid careful attention, "So charismatic, with an automatic, // never prematurely shooting his load."

and then imagine rowan atkinson having the attributes described above. the thought gave me a splitting headache.

abba's song isn't a lot less disturbing. check out the lyrics and tell me if you also think it's talking about a horny underaged girl flirting with older men. i was at panera eating my french onion soup with this song playing in my ipod when the verse "I can read in your face that your feelings are driving you wild" came around and made me smirk a little. then the next line came around "Ah, but girl you're only a child" and i almost spat out my soup at an old couple sitting across from me.

i don't know if i should be amused or disturbed.

whoever thought up personalized google page has got to win an award of some sorts.

not only it comes with useful stuff that you can stick on one page, it's also TABBED, which is probably the greatest thing ever since microwaves with cooking time preset on the keypad and an "add 30 seconds" button. the useful stuff are actually useful, even if i never use them, but the most amusing part of it is the random quotes i get everyday.

the following is some of the best, most amusing quotes i've ever got on my google page.

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.
~ G. K. Chesterton

Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff.
~ Frank Zappa

When a thing has been said and well, have no scruple. Take it and copy it.
~ Anatole France

I want to find a voracious, small-minded predator and name it after the IRS.
~ Robert Bakker

I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am.
~ Joseph Baretti

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
~ Benjamin Disraeli

i vote google for internet domination. if they haven't done it already.

noodle splash

i went to eat at mitsuwa with stephanie yesterday and ordered a cold udon with salmon egg and baked salmon. i received the receipt and proceeded to an empty table. i sat down and looked at my receipt.

i ordered WHAT?!

you see, i know the word "bukkake" for the meaning they use in japanese porn films. i never knew that bukkake was originally a way to prepare noodles, and not what crossed my mind when i saw that word on my receipt.

from wikipedia:
The word bukkake is often used in Japanese to describe pouring out water (or other liquids) with sufficient momentum to cause splashing or spilling. Indeed, bukkake is used in Japan to describe a type of dish where the toppings are poured on top of noodles, as in bukkake-udon and bukkake-soba.

i wished i had known THAT before i learned about the bukkake you see when you type that word in google images. i forever blame the internet for this.

the time machine

is the worst. movie. ever.

i procrastinated watching this since it was first released in 2002. i should have procrastinated more; it's one of the very very few movies that made me wonder who died in hollywood and hired people to work on this movie. whoever was in charge and put guy pearce as the main character needs to be banished from the movie industry and left to die on a raft in the middle of the pacific ocean. guy pearce looks like a fucking monkey. there, i said it.

two highlights of the movie:

1. the time machine itself. steam powered and full of bullshit, but well-designed. it's full of details and very elaborate. if there's a miniature replica of the time machine, i wouldn't mind having one to put on my shelf.

2. sienna guillory. too bad she died early in the movie. twice. silly deaths, too. a quick googlesearch after the movie returned an info that she played jill valentine in resident evil: apocalypse, so it's no surprise that her name sounded familiar when i looked through the cast list. she certainly looks better as long-haired blonde than a short-haired brunette, though.

lots of mayonnaise, no mustard

i seem to have developed some addiction to sourdough bread.

recently, as a part of my effort to cut down my cost of living, i have been buying cooked ham/bologna/salami/turkey slices from albertson's, as well as some bread to eat the sliced cooked meat with. it started sometimes early july when i bought 3 loaves of bread (multi-grain, 12grains, and wheat) because they were on a discount. not long after i got home i realized that there is no way i could finish all 3 loaves before they started growing mold even if i eat one or two sandwiches a day, so i decided to eat a sandwich everytime i felt hungry, and ended up eating about five to six sandwiches a day, with 2-3 hours of time interval between sandwiches. but even with this eating habit, i could only kill the multigrain and the 12grains, and was forced to throw away the wheat since i started seeing green hairy stuff on it.

after that first experiment of living off sandwiches, i realized that it's not so bad living off sandwiches. all i needed to do is put 2-3 slices of meat and microwave the sandwich for 30 seconds, then take it out and toast it with a frying pan for about 5-6 minutes. put in some lettuce and stuff it with mayonnaise, and it's good to go. it's not very time-consuming, it tastes decent, and it does not cost much. so with this new eating habit, i started trying out different kinds of bread from albertson's.

one that caught my attention was the sourdough.

the name, "sourdough," peaked my interest. i wanted to find out whether or not that thing is really sour, so i ate it by itself, untoasted. the result of this experiment was the realization that sourdough bread is not really sour, but it does taste awful when eaten as is. i had already bought a loaf, and i would feel bad throwing it away, so i toasted it and ate it with my sliced meat.

to my surprise, the awful taste of it disappeared. toasted sourdough bread is very different from regular sourdough bread. i have no clue why, but since that day, i've only been buying sourdough bread from albertson's

i'm also running out of the kewpie that aby got me. i should pick up a large bottle the next time i go to mitsuwa.

yawn of the dead

end of july is really something worth celebrating. on the 30th there was my dad's birthday, which was celebrated with a two-and-a-half hour drive to a city which normally required nothing more than forty-five minutes to travel to. and until now i still have no clue what caused that fifteen-or-more miles worth traffic jam. i got him a beatles anthology set of 8 VHS tapes. i hope he still has that dinky VHS player at home.

i also drew him a last minute christmas card. last minute here implies that it was not well-planned, but hey, it's always the thought and the effort that counts. not the end result. click to enlarge.

we had a good dinner at the elephant's bar. the food was pretty decent, but maybe i should've gone for the salmon instead of the chicken.

also to celebrate this end of july is the release of awesome DVDs. 300 is out, but i have yet to pick that up. i like the movie, but i'm not so sure about owning the dvd. the thing about owning a dvd is that it has to be a movie that i'd want to watch over and over again, and if not the whole movie, then maybe parts of it. 300 was amazingly brilliant, but i think watching it once was quite enough for me.

the number 23 is out too, so i picked that up since i missed out watching that on the theaters. probably not a movie i'd want to watch over and over again, but this one got picked up for the simple reason that i've never seen it and tv-links hasn't got it. i've always been a jim carrey fan, though, and thoroughly enjoyed his performance in 23. it's got alternate endings which i have yet to check out, so maybe the dvd is worth having anyway. alternate endings always peak my curiousity. only zarquon knows how many cats i've left dead because of that.

side note: this has always been bothering me, but when they say "curiosity kills the cat," i wonder why no one has ever asked "whose cat?"

the highlight of the end of july, however, is the release of HOT FUZZ. i bought fuzz on tuesday and re-watched it right after. not only that, but the dvd is DEFINITELY WORTH HAVING. the bonus has a 20-minute video on edgar, simon, and nick's tour in the US for the fuzz's screening, and it was hilariously brilliant. there's this bit when they had a phone interview, and out of boredom they just decided to strip down to their underwear. then after 15 or so calls, a lady came in to tell them that it was the last caller, and the look on her face was just priceless. the deleted scenes were even more hilarious, and the outtakes were mind-blowingly awesome. it's just amazing how much these british cuss. fuck, cunt, bollocks (what is that, anyway?), shit, motherfucker, and all sorts of other words i never even knew were cusswords. i guess they probably realized that they cuss too much, so as one of the extras in the dvd, they included a "MILD TV VERSION" of some hotfuzz scenes.

"police work is not about proper action or silt!"

"he sounds like a good bloke."
"actually, he was arrested for selling drugs to students."
"what a clunt."

"hey, watch this---- AGH MY EYES"

"you're a doctor. DEAL WITH IT."

the motherhugger part i'll never get over with.

to top off the whipcream with a cherry, this afternoon my SHAUN OF THE DEAD DVD arrived on the mail. funking brilliant. what could be better than rampaging through town smashing zombies on the head with a cricket bat? i have yet to see the extras, but i'm sure they'll be as delightfully smashing as the extras on fuzz.

it's almost 2.30am. i'd better go to bed before i exacerbate matters.

just a practice on monta's face and smoke effect using white ink.

note to self:
1. water + ink on sketch paper = BAD. never again.
2. for smoke effect with white ink, DO NOT OUTLINE.

Friday, July 27, 2007


this was originally a practice on drawing sena's face. then i kept adding more and more stuff in, but i never had the intention to color this... until i inked everything and realized how much wrong this could be.


so much wrong that i felt obliged to color this. here's to all you shinxsena fangirls.

here's one for the father

it's kinda odd when your dad emailed you and asked "how come your blog hasn't been updated for awhile?" it's not a nuisance or anything, but i'm just quite surprised that he reads my blog.

well, dad, i'm still alive and well, and no, i didn't forget that your birthday is coming up.

i found a tree branch on the way home today, and could not help myself from picking it up. so i took it home because i think it made a perfect reindeer horns...

and it did.

ode to odacchi

publishing a doujinshi next year. these two will be in there.

the joke isn't too funny, but at least it was a good practice on sincity/frankmiller kinda style. sketched in my sketchbook and inked straight on, using shiro's method. pretty fast, but didn't leave me with a good final hardcopy, so probably won't be using this method ever again.

still on the food joke, but this time back to my clean-lines, tiny-details style, which is still my favorite style. drawing thousand sunny on the 2nd panel was very enjoyable, as well as all the debris that came out after the gigant pistol blast. and drawing the kitchen on the third panel was fun. thank you odacchi for the great references of thousand sunny in volume 46.

i'm still in my post-AX slump period, but i'm finally over my AX fatigue. what slump, you ask? i was practically living together with eight awesome people for five days, but now they're all gone, scattered across the continent once more, and i have to wait another year before we can group up again. if that doesn't deserve a long sigh, i don't know what does.

now, some people have expressed interest in buying over the net some of the prints i was selling at AX, so here's the info:

send me a PM (don't reply here), indicating which prints you want, what size, give me your address, and i will reply with the total cost. serious buyer only.

it's simple: you send me money, i get the money, i send you prints. buyer is responsible for shipping cost. how do you send money?
1. paypal is preferred.
2. sending cash via snail mail works, too, but if it gets lost in the way, i am NOT responsible for it.



available in 2 sizes: 4x6 (postcard size) and 8x12 (approximately A4)

$5 for EACH of the 4x6, $25 for a whole set of 6 (that's buy 5 get 1 free)
$10 for EACH of the 8x12, $50 for a whole set of 6 (also buy 5 get 1 free)



available only in 12x18

** PRICE: $18



available in 2 sizes: 8x12 and 12x18

** PRICE: $9 for the 8x12, $15 for the 12x18



available only in 8x12

** PRICE: $8


some people have stopped by my table asking for prints of these, but i didn't have them, so if you are interested in purchasing the following, let me know, and i can get them printed whatever size you want them.

** PRICE: depends on the print size you want

shipping cost is fixed. COMBINED SHIPPING IS POSSIBLE.

any 4x6 prints (up to 6): $3 US, $5 INTERNATIONAL
any 8x12 prints : $4 US, $6 INTERNATIONAL
any 12x18 prints: $5 US, $10 INTERNATIONAL

combined shipping example: if you are buying a 12x18, and a set of the 4x6 skypiea recap, i'm just going to stick the set of 4x6 skypiea recap along with the 12x18, that way you only pay $5 US or $10 international for shipping.

i have a lot of the 4x6 skypiea recap in stock, so those will last quite a while. however, i only have very few 12x18 and 8x12 left. once i run out of those, i don't think i will get more of them printed out.

thank you for your interest. i love serving a (relatively) small fandom like one piece. it made me happy that most of the people who stopped by my table during AX (regardless of whether or not they bought anything) are people who truly understand what one piece is about and are capable of holding a good conversation regarding the series.

or you can go big and get the 8x12 size of these, which are sold for $10 each, or $50 for a set of 6 (again, buy 5 get 1 free)

the following will also be available for purchase.

zero runs like a little bitch

eggy arrived here sunday evening. we are still alive now and have not tried to kill each other, surprisingly enough. initially i thought it would just be non-stop work to get shit done, but this turned out to be some sort of vacation thing. let's hope we can actually get some shit done before AX actually starts.

zoro postcard is done, by the way.

nami and sanji-usopp postcard are in coloring stage, while chopper and robin postcard are still in sketching stage.

eggy finished 3 sketches for samurai champloo postcards. no large spreads are started yet.

smelly feet

my sister said to me today that she can't live without having her friends around her, so i gave her a bit of a pep-talk. here's how the conversation went:

e: that's kinda sad, you know? people who isolate themselves from the society are kinda sad, but people who always need someone else to be with them all the time are just as sad.
sis: how so?
e: have you ever heard of the old saying "for every hot girl, there's always an ugly bitch hanging out with her?"
sis: .... no.
e: well, now you have.
sis: that doesn't apply to me and my friends. we're all hot.
e: see, the hot girl knows that the other girl is uglier than her. but the ugly girl will always think that they're both just as hot.
sis: ...............
e: so which one do you think you are?
sis: i hate you.
e: i know.

another heartfelt talk between siblings.

and i finished a postcard-sized print to be sold at AX.
