Vampires don't sparkle
Vampires don’t sparkle
Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight
Right, at the time of writing it has been a while since I actually read Twilight, but currently my friends are also discovering the books and I seem to be the only one who hates it and actually knows why. Therefore I’m actually expressing my opinions here so I don’t have to repeat myself over and over again.
One thing a lot of fans might be wondering is “if you hate it that much, why don’t you ignore it?”
Well, I can ignore something I hate. However I can’t ignore something I hate that gets thrown in my face everywhere I go every single day.
--The Meyerpires.--
For starters, I am not THAT opposed to the entire sparkling thing. Yes, it’s stupid to the point of retardation but there are far worse things to be found in the bowels of this book. Most fans try to justify the weird properties of the vampires with “vampires are not real, Meyer can do with them whatever she wants” and other

Last Train to Squeeville
Take the last train to Squeeville
And I'll be at my workstation,
I'll be coding 'til 5:30
And I'm feeling exultation, don't you know,
Oh, no, no, no,
Oh, no, no, no.
I'll be back here in the morning
For I must write code again,
Seems I'm coding night and day now
And my friends think I'm insane but on I go,
Oh, no, no, no,
Oh, no, no, no,
And I don't just code at work, I code at home.
Take the last train to Squeeville,
And I'll be at my workstation,
When I take a break for coffee
Code will still pervade my conversation, oh,
Oh, no, no, no,
Oh, no, no, no.
Da-da-da-da-da-da, etc...
Take the last train to Squeeville,
Now I must hang up the phone,
'Cause I must be writing code now
While I sit at my workstation all alone
Just writing code,
Oh, no, no, no,
And I don't just code at work, I code at home.
Take the last train to Squeeville
I'll be back at my workstation,
I'll be coding 'til 5:30
In a state of geek elation, does it show?
Oh, no, no, no,
Oh, no, no, no.
Oh...

Journal
Hunt for Deliverance - A Writing OCT
Escape. To flee from the problems that torture the mind, body and soul. It is a dream many desire to make a reality and few, if ever, achieve.
But...
What if one was offered a chance. A chance to finally escape.
You have dreamed about escaping too. Perhaps it is an escape from boredom. Or maybe an escape from misery and sorrow. No matter what the reason there desire is there. It burns inside of you like an unquenchable thirst that is slowly driving you mad, isn't it? That is what is being offered. A chance to escape. A chance to find salvation from it all.
Freedom.
You receive a letter hand written in neat, precise lettering:
Salutations,
My name is Gallows. Who and what I am is of no consequence. What matters most is that I offer you what you desire most: a chance to escape. Your heart is full of this desire and yearns for it almost painfully. It is something you desire most of all. This I know without a doubt.
I am a man of power. And I have the means to set you free. Perhaps you

Literature
Goodbye, Twilight, Goodbye
Not so long ago,
Maybe yesterday, or so
There came this new thing they called "Twilight"
They said it had thrills and romance
So I thought I'd give it a chance
I figured, at the least, it'd be all right
But this book, it just didn't please me
All that it did was make me queasy
The writing was beastly
The characters were sleazy
What a most unpleasant surprise
Had to use Windex to clean my eyes
And I made a vow, there and then,
To never read Twilight again
So, bye-bye
Goodbye, Twilight, goodbye
See you later, alligator
You are out of my life
We don't need you to pollute innocent young minds
I say, this will be the day the craze dies
This will be the day the craze dies
Tell me, Stephenie Meyer,
What is it with these sparkling vampires?
That just sounds completely dumb
Anybody with half a mind
Knows these guys don't sparkle and shine
They just sizzle to a crisp in the sun
And why should a girl be called Bella?
Why should she fall for some dead fella?
Seems such a tragic waste
Oh, some peop

So for the past little while I've been getting ready for the Fan Expo in Regina this weekend and made sure I updated my websites and whatnot, completely forgetting to update my dA page!  Long story short, I have a booth at the con. :)  I'm at A199 in Artist Alley (the name on the table is Lion's Share Press).  I've got a 5' tall Nightcat and Raphael posters that make it easier to spot.

The con is today and tomorrow, and the first day went really well.  It's my first time getting a booth at a con so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect.  I'm really happy with the turnout of people at the con and I want to extend a special thanks to all who stopped by the booth and said hi and/or bought some books.  I've been to a dozen cons before, but never behind the table.  It's pretty exciting.  And really, without the support I've received over the years, I wouldn't have HAD a booth.  So thank you all for everything.  The watched, the favs, the encouragement, all of it.
