Thursday Threads #43: Bo Peep, Rex, Hamm, Slinky, and Wheezy Silhouettes

I love the full cast of Toy Story. In the three film franchise, I think the only character additions that I haven't loved are the bad guys (ahem, Lotso, sending shade your way, bro).  I love all of Andy's original toys, I thought the additions of Mrs. Potato Head, Jesse, and Bullseye were perfect, and… Continue reading Thursday Threads #43: Bo Peep, Rex, Hamm, Slinky, and Wheezy Silhouettes

Manga Monday #43: Aozora Yell, Chapter 38, Part VIII

Uh, woops.  Didn't realize that I never uploaded this yesterday.  I'm having a rough month, apparently! A lot of talking, a lot of translating, but I did it!  And I even fully edited all the sound effects on the last page.  Which, okay, wasn't hard, but hey, why not pat myself on the back for it,… Continue reading Manga Monday #43: Aozora Yell, Chapter 38, Part VIII

Freebie Friday

Freebie Friday #42: Eeyore Watercolor

Almost a century since the world first laid eyes on the Hundred Acre Wood, Winnie-the-Pooh has since become a fixture of childhood throughout the world.  A. A. Milne's venture into children's literature was inspired by his son, Christopher Robin, and his son's toy bear, pig, tiger, kangaroo, and donkey. For a writer to sit and invent a… Continue reading Freebie Friday #42: Eeyore Watercolor

Thursday Threads #42: “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”

There's those moments that, when you're watching a movie, words are spoken that just stick with you.  For me, there's this feeling of, "I've got to write this down, I've got to record this!"  Mulan, which I watched about a million times on the old VHS with my sister, is a film that holds several… Continue reading Thursday Threads #42: “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”

Watch Wednesday #41: 4 Shows I’m Currently Watching

I sometimes confuse my husband with my many-a-shows at once thing.  I'll talk him through my excitement of one show ("Then they went to the school dance..."), only to run him through my devastation of another the next day ("...and then he died IN SPACE."), and often leave him wondering what the heck kind of… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #41: 4 Shows I’m Currently Watching

Tuesday Tunes #42: Linda Chung’s “Sacrifice”

Have you ever sat through an entire series and thought, "Why did I do that?"  Yep, I did that.  Thank goodness for one good tune that sort-of-kind-of got me through it. Linda Chung's "Sacrifice" All That is Bitter is Sweet is a 2014 Chinese period drama that centers around an apothecary that is shut down after the… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #42: Linda Chung’s “Sacrifice”

Manga Monday #42: Aozora Yell, Chapter 38, Part VII

I actually had three pages done for today, went to watch Dateline, only to return to my computer to see that it decided to update itself--and I had only saved the first completed page.  Well, fudge. So, um, don't get too excited about the one page for today?  Especially considering the fact that I couldn't… Continue reading Manga Monday #42: Aozora Yell, Chapter 38, Part VII
