    I think I’ve discovered the meaning behind the lyrics of the song “Peas and Porridge” by Major Powers & The Lo-Fi Symphony, and it’s pretty brilliant. What it describes in its most literal interpretation is a guy or several guys who are forced to eat the bland, disgusting meal that is a dish of peas and porridge after having previously eating much more extravagant meals, and they’re quite upset about it. I think this is an allegory for someone who was in a relationship with a person he perceived as perfect, but the relationship ultimately ended. Then, in his next relationship, he’s with someone who he sees as not as good, and it causes him to be jaded and disillusioned with that relationship and his heart hardens to future ones as well. He ends up terminating the relationship just because it serves as a reminder of how he’ll never achieve the perfection and happiness that he had done before. I find it to be a very well-written, beautiful song both in terms of lyrics and actual melody, so I hope you listen to it and enjoy it too.

Whatever, screw you. I get to be sad today, and you should too. Here's a playlist I've assembled to make you do just that.

The sheer amount of kafkatrapping to which I was subject just for putting a small hammer and sickle on my sketchbook was astounding and ridiculous. The political left may have been atrocious with its identity politics lately, but the political right hasn't improved much since the Red Scare. Seriously, can't a guy be proud of his Russian heritage without being called a commie? There is no part of the Communist Manifesto with which I agree! Marxist-inspired ideology and class warfare are what caused the left to fail on a social level this past year. The liberal ideologies that I like are the classic ones, from Enlightenment-era France. Bring back that "I don't agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it" mindset!
I have strep throat, one of my wisdom teeth is coming out, a PVC pipe was thrown at my head during a tournament where I wasn't put in to participate, my ex just tried to text me again, and the political party I used to like is still falling apart despite knowing exactly how they need to reform to have themselves be taken seriously again. Everything sucks.

I am primarily a writer and secondarily a weapon concept artist. I tend to write my personal philosophies, observations, and general opinions, as well as some short stories based on my dreams. I'm totally open to discussion, debate, and criticism. I occasionally doodle original and inspired weapon concepts, and I do accept requests. You are free to use my weapon concepts, but you must first contact me so the terms can be arranged.

Since you're big into swords and other weapons, can you tell me how you feel about my OC's sword?

Overall, it's a pretty good design. There aren't too many crazy things sticking out of it. I would just make the blade narrower and the guard thinner. Also, I wouldn't have the character wear it on his back, since it would be very difficult to pull out at a moment's notice. The arm can only extend so far. I recommend that he wear it on his hip instead. You can't go wrong with a hip holster.

Hah then the tip would be dragging on the ground behind him since the blade is almost six feet long.

Good point. Well, you could either make the blade shorter, or have him just carry the thing around. That's how they historically did it.
