Interests

  • Drinking: a never-ending cup of coffee
Just a silly random thought I had... I always think I know people really well. Like friends on deviantart or message boards... other artists that actually work in the business. In some cases I actually do, in others it's mostly like "... yeah. i totally replied to a couple of his/her drawings. we're totally best friends." Silly right? It kind of occurred to me at a couple of conventions recently (recent-ish I guess). I'd walk up to other artists and say "HEY! I know you!" and introduce myself. People would actually kinda sorta recognize me or my name, but I would have absolutely NOTHING to talk about with them... I tend never talk to talk to people online. I don't connect with other artists very well at all unless they reach out to me (it's hardly ever the other way around). I don't know where to start usually. I talk to maybe 3 or 4 people on a regular basis that I've met through art communities. If you met me in person, I can play the part of an outgoing person, but it's definitely not me... which is weird. to me. I dunno. 

Maybe I should try to fix it? This kinda ties into my last post about relying too much on validation. Sometimes I do things for people who I think hold me in the same regard I hold them and it often isn't quite the case. 

Does that happen to anyone else? It seems like a lot of people on here just come right out and say anything and everything that's on their mind (sometimes to a fault) but end up building stronger bonds because of it. I've never quite been able to do that. 

Not sure why this has been on my mind. 

Anyway... go back to what you were doing! go on! shoo!

Hey, Beamer-san. I was just wondering if you've played(or at least heard of) Super Robot Wars. :)

Ha! Of course man!! I've only ever played the OG saga stuff though (or any western localizations). I liked the anime too despite it being super cheesy.

Well just recently, SRW: The Moon Dwellers is coming out in Asian markets with English subtitles. So I'm wondering if you're planning to import it.

Now that I've looked up some info on that, I remember reading about it. I didn't realise the release was so close!
