Like some others I am a bit late to the call. I am actually surprised that I caught this as soon as I did, I'm usually very slow on the news uptake, only a chance glance at a Facebook post clued me in. It's weird you know? I didn't know Monty beyond being a fan of some of but not all of his work, never met him, didn't really follow him either besides an appreciative nod to his talent when I saw his name attached to something. So it is a bit odd that I find myself feeling loss at something I didn't really have, about the same sense that I had when Robin Williams died even though I had a greater nostalgic connection to Williams. Perhaps an appreciation of Oum's art which brought me enjoyment more than a few times throughout the years. Maybe it's because just because of a brief tribute video I for a moment got a glimpse into how many lives his energetic and driven personality touched and inspired. The very unexpected way of his death definitely plucks the strings of awareness for my own mortality, not at my own hands or another's but from something as simple as an unknown allergic reaction. In the end though his passing is tragic and more affecting to me then I would have thought Monty left behind a legacy of inspiration for many people that will drive on a new generation of artists in their goals and dreams that will bring new beauty and creative process to the world and that is a precious gift for us all. No one reads these so I think like many others I am writing it for myself to help work through what I'm feeling. Why here? Because this is a concrete hub of my online life, pretty dusty and not visited often but still holding a special place in my memories and heart. I love all you guys that have shared positive memories with me. My prayers go out to Monty's family, his fans, all the people that are in need of comfort from his death, for all of us. So cheers Monty Oum! May we meet one day if that fates will it! Thank you for all of the happy memories, few as they may be they are still more precious then you will ever know. Goodnight.

It is almost betable fact that when I say I'm going to be more active that I will lapse out again for months. It seems this time it was for 4 months.... I'd like to say I am very sorry to all my friends, and especially my friends in rps. I'm sorry everyone.
If there is no center for the madness of this group to be gathered and fermented in then the true power of this group will remain unrealized. Thus I Ralph Nader from the fifth and a half dimension do declare this vat open for business! If this attempt fails utterly then I can post a link to that particular group about Cam. Although how you can fail at being yourself is a little odd.
For the opening statement: Once upon a time there lived a young boy named Ralph. He was a lonely boy who lived with his grandparents. For he had no parents to love or take care of him. For Ralph's father had gone off to war and had been killed by a pet Irish Wolfhound while looting a graveyard. When Ralph's mother got the news she went straight to church to pray for guidance. It was night though and on the way she was pulled into a dark allyway and was never seen again. Ralph's grandparents did not want him in their lives and usually ignored him. This left Ralph plenty of time to explore the surrounding countryside, and one day he found an abandoned quarry, and in this quarry he found what looked like a cave. So Ralph wandered into the cave, and this is how our story begins.

I leave for college in the morning. If anyone still pays attention to me, thank you, and I am sorry I have not been the best of friends too you. Will my nomadic cycle continue and I will return back here one day? Only time will tell. Good life to you my friends, I hope that I was a positive contribution to your lives, if only a tiny one.

So I would like to announce that after being distracted by some random cartooon made in Denmark, I am ready to give my semi important news. Yesterday at 1:16 AM I became legally able to vote. (After I register.) Many of you may not think this is very wonderful, I am one of those people. Meh whatever I'm 18 now and I ate crab for dinner so I'm happy.
So happy belated birthday to me.
P.S. Thank you for the mods people but heartfelt/sarcastic/random comments means more to me then the points.
(Now if we still had the old mod point system and we were talking hundreds then... Then I'd still want the comments.)

Ladies, gentlemen, friends, random people who I talk to every now and then, and of course the people who are watching me (Blarg!) I have returned from my two month (or however long) leave to tell you all something. Something that is very important to me.
Read the spoiler first before scrolling down.
I am getting married!!!
Did you read the spoiler? Ok good cause now I can tell you jk. No really I am very happy for everyone who does have that special someone, but I have not found the one for me yet. I actually graduated from highschool tonight. Yeah I know it isn't that unqiue, but I felt like sharing with all of my buddies on RVB, who I can never quite let go of forever. (Despite all of the counseling. JK I love you guys, and gals.)
Class of 2010! Take that middle schoolers I can vote for the next blasted man who is going to end the world in 2012! (Or woman. I don't actually buy it. 13 though is a different story. Hobbit fans get it.)
Firenomad: Let us stroll into the abyss together and be happy that there are no more taxs.
