Well I decided to sign up to Keenspace and see how it goes. The only problem is I have to wait a minimum if seven days for processing. Ack! Oh well, I was hoping to set up the site this week, but I think for sure it will be ready during my Christmas break. I also have to figure out how to build the darn thing too.
Never in my manga reading life have I ever read such an addicting manga. I'm usually a Clamp fan...a prolific Clamp fan. I have most of their works.
But one day I saw an ad in the back of my X/1999 book. I read the summary for Basara, and it was quite intriguing. A girl who has to become "the boy of destiny" and take her dead twin brother's place. She falls unknownly in love with the Red King who killed her village and her brother.
I looked at the cover and it wasn't impressive, but after I finished the manga, I had to buy another and another. Now my wallet is empty and I'm only at Volume 5 of 21 I think. I even stopped buying Clamp for a while to fill my need for Basara. I'm starting to also look at Yumi Tamura's other books like Chicago and WildCom.
Maybe someone should create Basara Addiction Anonymous. I would join.....well.....maybe after volume 6 ^^
The time has finally come. I promised myself to launch my webcomic during my Thanksgiving Break.
I already have inked 30 pages worth, but clean up on my tablet is still needed.
I haven't yet decided whether to launch my own site or go to Keenspace.com. I like the idea of a pre-existing template to post my comics easier since I'm such a novice.
Plus, I'm also worried about copyrights, but will see how things go.
What is the name of the comic you say? Well that is yet to be decided sadly ><, but the "tentative" title My Beautiful Dream. I haven't really found the right name yet. It's a manga inspired, Basara inspired, knick-knack of a fantasy comic.
I might also post on the site my school newspaper comics, Breakfast at Tivoli. Also a short Chinese comic I had in mind called Dim Sum.
So a hodge podge of comics hopefully on the way next week.
Well, after such a disapointing election week and a bad week in general, I really needed a break.
I've looked forward to The Incredibles ever since I heard Brad Bird was going to direct and write it. I love Brad Bird....literally worship. I saw Iron Giant opening weekend when it first came out. Yes, I was one of the few who saw it in theaters. Ever since I watched Iron Giant, I just couldn't get over how important this animated feature was to animation...to film.
So from the get go I had high expectations for Incredibles and I wasn't disapointed.
3-D usually has problems with depicting the human being. They always feel like cold shells and robots, which is why I advocate 2-D animation soo much. Well, Incredibles stuck my foot into my mouth. The caricatures and movement of the characters felt completely human. I didn't feel any mechanics at all in the movie.
It has been so long since I've seen a movie that a really had fun watching. This film is eye candy and contains a great story!
Go see this movie and even more important go buy Iron Giant Special Edition DVD or watch it if you haven't.
Fun fact: Brad Bird does the voiceover for Edna, the fashion guru! Simply perfect and hilarious!
As you can tell I haven't been blogging much since I created this account.
However, when I looked at my comments today I saw that jh posted a comment.
I've always loved The X Bridge site and jh opinions. I'm a little giddy that he saw my crappy blog a long time ago since I view his opinions superior to mine. I'm not worthy!
Many blogs have already posted on this, but I wish to use my own as an outlet.
I voted for Kerry as did many, and it was my first time voting. After voting, I proudly stuck the "I Voted" sticker on my chest. I finally could vote and have my voice be heard. However after yesterday, I just feel so empty now. I couldn't figure out how could the American people re-elect this president again. How could they dissmiss the mistakes in Iraq? The jobs lost and the people lost in the war (Iraqis, Americans, and our allies). Are people blind to fear? Did they forget what's really going on?
People who voted for Bush often told me "Bush was the lesser of the two evils." Lesser of the two evils? Sending thousands to war without just cause isn't evil? The abuse to the Iraqi people isn't evil? Banning the happiness of two homosexuals isn't evil?
I can't tell what's truth or justice anymore. All I am now is just anger. Thank goodness the President can only have two terms.
Thank you blog for being an outlet for my rambles. Now I can get back to college and my hopes for a better America.
