So, There's That.

Here’s a story:

I actually have been working on Day 10 of the OFF challenge. I had half of my stuff done in Photoshop, and I figured I’d have it up by the end of the day tomorrow.

However, I saved and closed the files, and, when I came back to them, I found that Photoshop had mysteriously saved them in stange, unopenable files. I tried again, and it still wouldn’t save the correctly, so I cannot predict when I can get it working again. So, there’s that.

There is never a time where my blog doesn’t need cryptids in it.
I’m kind of digging the nasty mouths on some of them.

10 Day OFF Challenge- Day 9

9. Favorite books/music/movies of certain characters.

If you’ve read some of my other entries, you might have noticed a certain trend in how I answer these prompts,the trend being that I dodge them. This entry, however, will be… aw heck, it’ll be the same.

I suppose I find it hard to picture OFF characters partaking in any specific music or films because of the ambiguous setting of the game (i.e. I have no idea what time period it should correspond to), as well as the fact that my own selection of preferred media is very small. Maybe if I did some research and broadened my tastes, I could do some character playlists, but for now, I’ve only got these vague impressions to give.

The Batter: The Batter has no interests. He’s a busy guy.

Zacharie: He mostly watches films he finds bad enough to laugh at, but has a secret, genuine enjoyment for soap operas.

Sucre: Club music or ballet. Occasionally both at the same time.

Pablo and Valerie: They really just do cat things, for the most part.

Dedan: While Dedan maintains that he doesn’t have the time for leisure, he sometimes listens to classical music. I see him as the kind of bloke who just sits with his eyes closed, calm and contemplative for a straight hour, then snaps back the moment the music comes off.

Japhet: Nonfiction books, with a great interest in travel guides.

Enoch: Enoch enjoys the challenge of one of those books that requires the reader to make charts to get through. He would theoretically be into theater, but, as there is a noted lack of performers in Zone 3, he resorts to reciting plays alone.

Hugo: Has a small collection of Silver Age-style comic books.

The Queen: Same as the Batter. 

Alright, I suppose I have one headcanon about a specific piece…

10 Day OFF Challenge- Day 8

8. Create a food dish/mixed drink based on a character.

A nice, foaming bottle of meat, right from the fountains. “Refleshing!”

Alright, alright. It’s really a mikshake made with ice cream, red velvet cake, and sugar-based blood substitute. The pictures don’t really get across just how chunky it is.

A thousand thanks to Skvlk for making the label!

10 Day OFF Challenge— Day 7

7. Illustrate/write about/etc. your favorite song from the soundtrack- especially consider the mood of the song.

Well since there doesn’t seem to be a rule about what I’m supposed to write, so I’d just like to talk about why i picked the song I did, which is Panic in Ballville.

I think the placement of it is why I feel the need to talk about it more than my other favorite songs. Zone 3 marked the turning point where the background music became quite dismal, which continued into the rest of the game— if I’m honest, the background music in The Room actually messes with my head a bit. Panic in Ballville isn’t even a very happy song when you listen to it on its own, but after one’s spent so much time getting used to harsh and upsetting BGM, this area’s music sounds wonderfully uplifting. One can even get the same effect when listening to the soundtrack in order (which I do).Not to mention, it’s quite a bit better than it had to be; even though it was only in a couple minutes of gameplay, it’s a well-made and dynamic track. This is one of the few cases when I enjoy having a song stuck in my head.

My other favorites are Unreasonable Behavior, Pepper Steak, and Fake Orchestra, but I don’t think I need to explain why those are awesome.

like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means…

I have nothing to add, save a request for you (as in, people) to read this.

Has Anyone Encountered a Problem Like This?

I’ve had something going on with Photoshop for maybe a year. I usually don’t try to bring my personal problems onto my blog, but now that I’m actually trying to color, this has become rather stifling.

This problem has to do with painting color on certain layers (though it affects the pencil tool as well). Painting does not effect anything on other layers, as it should. However, if I try painting over something on the same layer…

…It passes through the other color(s), turning if white or grey. (This only shows up if they are two different colors, though). It has been doing this for as long as I can recall. I don’t think I ever changed most of the settings from the default.

Does anyone know why this would be?
