Day 8 ish. Favorite Superhero

What is your favorite super hero?  This is a super hard one for me to answer.  I love TONS of super heroes.  I love spiderman, nightcrawler, green lantern, wolverine, raven, swamp thing, etc, etc.  The point is that to pick one is not easy.  I will say that one hero that has caught my eye for awhile is Phoenix (or Hound (Rachel Sumers/Marvel Girl) depending on which universe we're in).

Here's a challenge for you.  You tell me why I like Phoenix (or why you do).

The Place Where Souls Die



Day 6 I think.  The place where souls go to die.  Bixby Canyon, Big Sur, California.

Day Who Gives A Crap

     So I don't even know what day this is supposed to be for the ol' blog post challenge.  You see, when something attempts to control my actions (especially in the instance of something personal to me i.e. blog) I don't respond very well.
      Anyway... Here we sit.  I'm looking at the end of a long holiday and I've got a lot to say and none of it is worth listening to.  That being said, here's the first ten songs my iPod plays on shuffle with their official music video (if they have one [or if I don't like the video, another video with the same song {pardon the lyrics if it applies (I don't know what's in them, I haven't picked the songs yet)}]).


1. Run To The Hills by Iron Maiden


2. Eet by Regina Spektor


3. I Like The Way You Move by Outkast


4. Celtic Moon by Enya


5. Courage by Alien Ant Farm


6. Easy Lover by Phil Collins


7. Can't Stop Now by Keane


8. Vanilla Twilight by Owl City


9. Beat 8 by Ratatat


10.The Tunnel by The Used


       I'd like to leave you with a few parting words.  First I'm super glad someone found and used my "feedback buttons" under my posts.  Also, the last few post I've put up have had record views.  If you're reading this could you take 5 seconds and tell me what you like to see or want to see from my blog.  
      Finally, if you didn't watch the videos or look up the songs, you're missing a splendid opportunity to understand me.  I know that hipsters claim that music impacts them more than anyone else, but truthfully this sort of uncensored exercise really gives you a look at who a person is.  Say what you will about any song on this list, but every song is on my ipod for a reason.  Every song represents something in me; whether the song reflects my hope for a brighter tomorrow, a forgotten love of yesterday, or my daily self exploration.
     Thanks everyone for your support and always remember these 3 things:
         1. Never use the word 'you' when giving criticism, good or bad.
         2. For you to be saved and me to be brave we don't have to walk down that aisle.
         3. When I get older, I won't remember. Until that day comes, I've got something on you.

The Habit I Wish I Didn't Have


I have a terrible, terrible habit of getting really excited about something and not finishing.  It's currently on of my habits I'm trying to kill off.  :D

This is a sketch from the video game I want to make.  His name is Jeb.

Picture Of Me and My Friends

Well... here's a funny thing.  So people have funny names in my phone.  I think it started as a joke where people would steal my phone and change names, then I just never changed them back.  So Jake in my phone is Pikachu.
Yeah... so that's pretty much the post for today.  Hopefully you like the colored version.  I sure didn't like the method I tried in coloring this time.  :(

Day 03 - A picture of you and your friends

The Meaning Behind Blog Name

How did I decide on "The Ink Golem" as a blog title.  I wanted something that is me.  What better than an animated beast created purely out of ink?  And honestly, if there is any truth to the saying "the pen is mightier than the sword," is there anything more terrifying than an ink golem?  Think about it.

Non-related Reminder: We're all one phone call away from our knees.

The Saddest Post Ever


Here's my life (blurred out so as not to be accused of cheating) for the last 6 weeks.  It's a web crawler.  It crawls websites and indexes the key words.  Cry for me, and the 1,698 lines of code.


Also, since this blog post is sort of a disappointment (for both you and I), I've decided to add a little something extra I got from my sister's blog.  I normally hate these things but what the heck.  It's a 30 day schedule of questions to answer.

Day 1: A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself

This festive halloween picture was snapped by the ever famous, ever present Luke Lewis.  The party was AWESOME and I really enjoyed spending the evening with good friends.

That's the recent picture part.  15 interesting facts.... not happening.  Sorry.  I will tell you this interesting fact, however.  I'm determined to name my first boy Nicolas.  No particular spelling.  I just like the name.  I'm pretty sure that was personal enough to count for all 15 facts.

Comic Con 2010

Well, I feel like this whole event has been kept under wraps quite well, until now.  Here's a taste of (hopefully) more to come.

In case you're wondering what's up, this is Skottie Young, easily my favorite artist of all time (excluding Michelangelo, I'm a sucker for sculptors).

Also, if you couldn't tell, I was a Ravenclaw. Not anyone in particular.  Just a Ravenclaw.
