Re: FML and GMH

I know from personal experience that bitching about my life on the Internet can be therapeutic. It's a cathartic release to get all that garbage out. However, I feel like sites like FML take it too far. Yeah, it's good to get that stuff out, but there comes a certain point where that stuff just isn't fun to read anymore, especially for depressive types like me. I mean, I'm pretty miserable in my own life. I can sometimes derive some sick pleasure from the misery of others, but I can only read so much of other people's suffering before the sympathy kicks in and I can't enjoy it anymore.

So, I recently discovered GMH. It's like FML, but instead of bad experiences, it's a collection of things that 'give me hope'. It's a sweet idea, and corny as it sounds, reading just a few off the front page each day can be really uplifting. For a guy like me who had lost almost all faith in humanity, these kinds of things really warm my heart.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share that. If you're a cynical prick who enjoys hearing about others' pain, give FML a try. If you still have a shred of humanity in you, I'd suggest reading some GMH. If both of those sound like you, well, you're not alone. Bookmark them both just in case.

I still had a few questions after the finale. Apparently I'm not alone.

Today, May 20th

Someone had the audacity to create a holiday called Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. The idea is to show defiance against the threats of religious fanatics by publicly breaking that doctrine that says you're not supposed to depict the prophet Mohammed in any way. This is obviously an emotionally-charged issue, and I want no part in the drama that would ensue from such actions.

On an unrelated note, I recently started drawing again. I have to practice for an art contest on TinierMe. I started off with a simple doodle, which you can see below:

Now, I know what you're thinking: this isn't a very good drawing of Santa Claus. I know, but it's my first try, so I think that's pretty good all things considered. I still want some more opinions on my drawing abilities as they are now, so I'm going to post the image to Facebook as well, and I encourage my readers to share it with anyone you'd like.

That's about it for now. Take care, my dear readers. Blessings and peace be upon you.

Re: The Marmaduke Movie

I can't begin to express how much I hate Hollywood right now. I can't find an outlet for my writing, but a fucking Sunday paper comic strip gets a live-action movie? Seriously, just put a bullet in my head now, so I don't have to keep watching the movie people rape the collective consciousness of America.
