This goes out to one of my friends here on dA, the creator of the fabulous Ashley & A-Hole comic, the amazing :iconashleykat: I would like to thank her for being by my side in a particularly difficult time. Thank you so much.

Well, in case you were wondering what I've been up to, I'm working on an essay documenting the post-Holocaustian alienation of Sol Nazerman in Sidney Lumet's 1965 feature film The Pawnbroker.

The stress surrounding this essay deals with my ability to "nail it" or not - should the professor consider that I was on the wrong track and should have written more about, I don't know, let's say the father-son relationship between Nazerman & Jesus Ortiz (you'll have to watch the movie in order to understand), in that case my whole work is blown to smithereens.

And yet, the only thing that keeps me going in this case is that inherent sense of justice that I'm doing something right in this world by merely writing the essay, an essay that, combined with many others, helps us gain a better understanding on how the world functions, impacted by history. There could never be enough essays written about the Holocaust, in my opinion, as long as in 2014 there are still antisemitic idiots out there who keep denying it.

Which reminds me that I could tackle another large scale tragedy in my final thesis. I could write about the impact of 9/11 in the structure of the American urban environment, or perhaps how it prompted many Americans to vote for republicans.

Again, the possibilities are boundless, I just have to decide whatever the heck it is I want to write and stick to that to the very end. To me, that's the hardest part.
I honestly think that this is the best thing I've heard this year. Let's just say it's the seductively ethereal tones of Sufjan's voice and we need not add anything else. 

Ironically, the first time I heard it was some months ago. Didn't give it much credit. Second time around though, I was like WOW. Wow! Wow.

Sisyphus is the latest project of that awesome dude Sufjan Stevens, who delivers a lot of random stuff via his music (he seems quite a tripped out oddball at times) but when he doesn't deliver the weird shit he creates masterpieces. He is, quite simply put, a genius. And like all geniuses, difficult to label & categorize.
Here is the place where I will be doing most of the writing. You might have noticed that I have been on a long hiatus here on dA and well, the sad thing is I hardly have enough time to write or draw. I am, however, devoted to my blog, therefore I'll grow it from scratch.

Hey, I sort of know you!  Thanks for the fave!

I suppose I should try to make an attempt to follow your blog...  but as this site is really my fill of being on the computer, I'll watch you here in an effort to remind myself.

Thanks for dropping by on my profile and for following me! Even if I don't usually practice nsfw style in my art (and some haters might add that's it's way too infantile) I have a lot to learn from an artist such as yourself. Therefore I'll follow back.

The only reason I summon people to my blog is the fact I've kinda abandoned dA from lack of inspiration and I don't want them to get bored or whatever.

Ah, the only thing you can learn from watching me is what people are paying me to draw.  My own art is usually based on my simple-minded notion that being surrounded by beautiful, sexy, naked women would be entertaining.  Still, I appreciate the support.

Actual inspiration is hard to come by, I think.  And then when you do have it, it needs to fuel a fire that lasts long enough to see something through to completion, which is the harder part for me.
