Shit! Has it really been that long? Man, time flies when you're unemployed and stressing about where your next meal is coming from, don't it?
I haven't been around much for real world reasons (see above), but I occasionally like to check in, if only to clear out my messages. I stopped by today because of something I ran across on the web. A blog.
I'm not a very "today" guy. Truth be told, my mind is still stuck somewhere in the 20th century (while my maturity stopped progressing sometime in the 70s). Social media and blogs just aren't really my thing. This may be because my average day bores even me to tears ... why subject what few friends I have left to the torture of constant tweets from my couch? I mean, I use facebook to get photos of my nieces, and occasionally to find out what kind of beer my brother is brewing, but other than that? Meh.
I ran across a blog today that changed my disinterest, if only slightly, and not necessarily in a good way. I was trolling through google (the only search engine my stone age mind can comprehend), and I cam across a familiar image. This one:fav.me/d1ghvmi
Being both vain and depressed, I followed the link of my drawing back to its origin, expecting to land on dA. Imagine my surprise when I landed on a blog. A Boba Blog, to be more accurate. I was flattered that someone had enjoyed my drawing enough to blog it, and moreso that 80 some people chose to comment on it. I noticed that several had "reblogged" the piece, and, being shameless in my need for self congratulation, I followed a few links to the new blogs. And so on. And so on.
Until I found the shitstain who was claiming my drawing as his own. His comment read along the lines of "this is my drawing, but who the fuck colored it?". I followed that back to his blog, where I read only a few of the 70 or so comments consoling this 20 year old fuck on the theft of his drawing! I drew that thing 3 fucking years ago!
So yeah. New journal. Annoyed. I'll survive.
