So when it comes to NChick episodes, the ones I end up liking the best are usually the ones I feel genuinely nostalgic for, not just the shit a vocal minority requested so I did it ahem Jem ahemahem. But in that wave of nostalgia somehow I ended up on the “art” folder of my computer. I use the word “art” loosely, as I… uh… well, there’s a reason I do funny Internet videos in pigtails and never went into animation or anything.
But as I was going through them I started showing them to Todd, and he showed me his (let’s just say his would surprise nobody), and he admitted difficulty reconciling the person he knew, pushing … 27, and the “Internet goon” who had made all these wonders. And wonders they are, truly. A cautionary tale! So let’s take a look back, shall we? A look back at:
My Bad College Fanart and Photoshops (and some Easter Eggs)
I recall that my then-roommate Tammy was driving through the Midtown Tunnel when she saw this billboard with one of the x-men folk, or all of them, I don’t know, for X-men 3, and it looked like they were all about to take the stage, or do an interview for Spin, or something. Thus…
We were doing a series of Darths at one point? I have no idea what inspired Darth Guido here, but to think, five years before Jersey Shore…
I find it odd that people say I “hate” Hercules. I was actually a pretty big Disney’s Hercules fan! Well… the TV show. I’d call myself a fan of the TV show. The movie I like to pick apart because it’s so flimsy, but either way the universe Nella and I were completely enamored with in college- a spoof comedy based on Greek Mythology? What’s not to love? Aww look at the three Disney brother gods taking a picture awwww…
Suffice to say for this one, we had this roleplaying thing going on where Elisa was Hades (the historical one, not the Disney one), Nella was Hymenaeus (look it up) and I was Hecate, and Hades had reduced my domain from the crossroads to a square inch of the crossroads. Oh yeah. I drew fanart for roleplay characters, the one goddamn time I ever did an online roleplay. Who’s got two thumbs and goes to the cool school? This guy!
Disney’s Beowulf; coming 2015.
I may have penned a song or two in ode to the snakes, too. Wanna fight, mothafucka?
I… have no idea. Snakes on a plane, man. Snakes.
Well, they are the fates. I guess they would know.
Also, I have no idea who they’re talking to. Persephone, maybe? (“rape” in the CLASSICAL sense, you plebes!)
Or it could just be based on that meme from back in the day. Probably that.
Someday I will make you smile, Spike Lee! Someday!
My friends and I, rather than doing the egg dye thing, developed a tradition of drawing very elaborate designs on easter eggs and painting them. I had a tradition of the Greek god Hades- this was year 2: Goddess of Spring Hades!
Year 3: Greek Vase Hades
Year one, the Hades what started it. Actually what started it was a pin that Tammy got on a Disney cruise that looked just like this; we loved it so much we both painted it on eggs. Mine failed the least.
Past my phantom fanfiction days and… well there was never a point in history where I could art properly, there was a tendency to write Erik the phantom, if not paired off with either Christine or some other chick, well, he adopts some gypsy child and becomes a daddy. Illustrated thus. /genius
You know what that clown needs? Vin Diesel’s fuckin’ head on it, that’s what.
NYU had a “general studies” program for students who weren’t academically… up to par enough to get into the program they applied to, but from whom NYU wanted to extract money anyway. We, the… everyone else, kind of looked down on them.
To be fair, the dumbest chick I ever met was in that program. That makes my broad, sweeping generalization okay.
Besides, we in the College of Arts and Science needed SOMEONE to look down on. I mean, besides Gallatin.
I… Erik needed a motorboat? No not THAT kind of motorboat, pervs…
I’m also quite sure that every phantom phan goes through a Greek mythology Hades/Persephone… thing. At least at one point.
I kind of remember the context for this? I think I was parodying this other phantom fangirl who had like… space lions or something.
Oh, you laughed. Admit it.
Vin Diesel will cut you… and cut his way into every picture!
And look how far I’ve come!
