 so

the holiday season

is upon us

and so i feel it appropriate

to bring up a subject that has been bothering me

for a very long time

and we’re talking like

fifteen years

anyway here it is

you know how

in final fantasy 7

the name of the resistance group

is

AVALANCHE

that name has always bugged the SHIT out of me

like

why is AVALANCHE always written in caps

is it an acronym

what could it possibly be an acronym for

i have no idea

but if i had to guess

i'd say it stands for

A

Virtuous

Anteater

Loves

And

Never

Crushes

His

Enemies

i don't know what anteaters have to do with ff7

as far as i know

there is not a single anteater

in the entire game

maybe it's symbolic

and like

barret is the anteater

or something

i think that might be racist though?

i mean

it's pretty fucked up to call a black guy an anteater

and another thing that's fucked up is

AVALANCHE is a terrorist organization

that bombs nuclear reactors

to further an environmentalist agenda

this somewhat contradicts the whole

"love and never crush your enemies" bit

but you know

japanese RPGs

particularly ones from that era

are known to borrow concepts and ideas

without ever really researching them

just because they sound cool

and they often get shit completely wrong

like

in final fantasy tactics

they have monsters all based on zodiac signs

but

the sign for scorpio

is a big fat naked dude

and in xenogears

after god kicked adam and eve out of the garden of eden

they built giant robots and kicked his ass

and

i’ve never played persona but

i think in one of the Persona games

you can make adolf hitler your anime waifu

so

maybe that's what's going on with this whole AVALANCHE clusterfuck

i dunno man

video games are fucking weird

like the other day

i was playing this fucking game called earthbound

my dipshit fucking friend james was like “dude you should play this game it’s so good”

and then his little brother ran in and kicked him RIGHT IN HIS ANUS

fucking lifted him like an inch off the ground

it was crazy as hell

but i digress

anyway

earthbound, right

i played for like five minutes

and one of the characters in it was a girl

i was not prepared to deal with that level of bull shit

so i went down to the gamestop at my shitty mall

(which i have discussed elsewhere on this website)

and i was like

“i demand a refund for this fucking reprehensible trash”

and the guy was like

“the cartridge has stains on it”

and i was like

“yeah that’s barbecue sauce”

and he was like

“what the fuck

how do you even get barbecue sauce on a game cartridge”

and i was like

“will you just take the fucking game, i didn't come here to fucking haggle with some pencil pusher”

and he fed me this fucking corporate bullshit line about how

“we don’t take games that were made in 1975” or some shit like that

so i got pissed

and in a show of civil disobedience

i went over and put it on one of the used games shelves

 

and the guy was like

“take that game off the shelves right now”

so i threw a copy of Mini Ninjas at him

and anyway

after i was escorted from the premises

i started walking around the parking lot looking for change

and i found 36 cents

and i threw the game off the overpass on the walk home

it smacked some dude’s pickup

and just fucking shattered everywhere

it was sick

Super super SUPER god damn late (ugh seriously it's so embarrassing) commission for :iconcombinecommando:! He wanted his character Felicia with the lovely Cerebella from Skullgirls.

I generally avoid getting this close to Cerebella, since it usually results in me taking like 7k, but Felicia here seems to be fine. Those invincibility frames are just OP. mike plz nerf

Tried to do the smudgy coloring thing again. Was fun doing some more Skullgirls stuff, it's been too long.

Hope you like it, dude!



Man, Skullgirls AND yuri AND cyborgs. it's like everything I think is rad condensed into one picture

Cars practice
Felt like getting out of my comfort zone, so I drew some cars.

When I was in fourth grade, my school had a contest for artists - you had to draw a picture with a "water" theme.

Other kids made stuff like paintings of mallard ducks in the water or whatever. I submitted a comic strip in which a robot gets a bucket of water dumped on him and he rusts to death.

I did not win.
