Hi, my name is Patty and I love art. I was known as "keirajo" over on Fur Affinity, but I have chosen to leave that site permanently as of April 30, 2015. About my username..."Keira-Jo" was an Echidna female I created for a Sonic the Hedgehog fan club back in 1996. When the fan club disbanded I used her in fan-fiction I wrote. She's been a big part of my life for a very long time, so I often use her name or image as my avatar when I am online anywhere.
I just got "Adventure Time" season 7, which came out on DVD this past week. It's shorter than the past couple seasons.......back to the length of the earlier seasons. I am a little sad that there's no commentary track, yet again. I watched seasons 1-4 with the commentary tracks once and they were a lot of fun. It was Pendleton Ward (creator) and his crew talking about the episodes and you heard some neat little facts about how they came up with things they did. Ironically..........I've seen many of the episodes of this season, this was the season that must've been on when I was caring for my mom before she passed away--I watched a lot of t.v. when I was taking care of her.
Oh..........and I just watched the newly released to DVD in the U.S. "Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimentions" movie. I actually rented it from the Library, because I wasn't sure I wanted to buy it. I wasn't a fan of the previous films (just as I was not a fan of the t.v. series)....and for the most part they were usually an hour of Kaiba and Atem/Yami Yuugi dueling in each film. So tiring. But I saw a trailer and I saw Ryou (Bakura) in the trailer..............so a part of me wanted to see it, just to see Ryou. Then I found out that Kazuki Takahashi wrote the script and designed the characters for the movie...............and it made me think that maybe it might be good. AND IT SURPRISED ME BY BEING GOOD!!!!!!!!!!! :o Kazuki Takahashi actually continued the storyline from where the manga ended.......and he paid attention to characters, just as he had in the manga. He didn't cater to secluded fanbases, as the t.v. series did. And there was a lot more Ryou Bakura than I was expecting--including the origin of how he got the Millennium Ring (which was never completely covered in the manga). rubs back of neck I think I may actually go buy this movie when I have a few extra bucks................! And now...............I kinda want to re-read the manga. XD
Wordless graphic novels.
I don't know how many of you out there have ever read one, but there are really good ones out there. A few years ago I picked up some "Owly" comics at a comic book convention..........then I picked up one called "The Saga of Rex", which was really good. This past week at the comic shop, I picked up one called "Petals"--which was a beautiful and bittersweet story. Ironically it seems like I've only read ones with..............animals or anthro animals??? XD I think to be able to tell a comic book-style story without words is a real amazing gift--it takes real skill. Check out your local Library and see if it has some of these great independent comics/wordless graphic novels.
Please tell me when summer is over and we can stop being hot and humid! XD Of course, then I'll be complaining how cold it is and I wish the snow would go away..................................!
What about you guys? Are you all up to new and exciting things? :)
