Slow Magic at The Roxy was insane. Opening acts, “Daktyl” and “Kodak to Graph” were great too, but damn. Small, smelly, stuffy venue. I could go off on the FOMOs, Hipsters and Tweens (all ages show), but I won’t talk about it. What matters is that we had a good time and enjoyed the music, I think. I just fought my way through Hollywood-based traffic on a Friday night, fuck you L.A. I’m gonna pass out now, I feel drained.
Let’s pretend you’re one of the mannequins propped on a storefront display; you do your best to look good in front of others, but there’s so much you’re not allowing yourself to do or say. I think many “mannequins” are afraid of tainting the image they’ve spent so much time molding and perfecting just to impress everyone. For What? Sometimes, I forget that some of the people I know exist underneath many fabricated layers. I mean, all I see now are the empty shells they’ve left behind. But who knows? Maybe that’s all that they see in me too.

The problem in social media is that it makes me anti-social.
Does this image look familiar to you? This is my parody of ATLUS 2011 game, “Catherine”. For those who don’t know, my astrological sign is Gemini, associated with “The Lovers” in tarot cards/arcana. I’ve been wanting to imitate this style for awhile now, because I like the modest cover girl.

I played and finished the game Catherine years ago, the summer of its release and I’m not even joking about this part: it ruined some of my friendships. For an extended period of time, I couldn’t look at the artwork, because it reminded me of the unnecessary frustration between me and said people, but I think it’s safe to say that it’s water under the bridge now.
This year, I had a chance to meet the illustrator of this video game, Shigenori Soejima. He was signing posters for an upcoming ATLUS game, but I was hoping to have my copy of Catherine signed instead. Unfortunately, the staff members did not allow me to have my item autographed, so I walked away disappointed that day. I was so upset that I vowed to never deal business with their staff or their company. Only time will tell what happens next.
As much as I like the story and artwork that was produced for Catherine, this game in particular has caused me lots of aggravation in their fictional world and my own life. like they say, “Love is Over.” approximately 10-12 hours spent in ms paint & wacom tablet.
Present for a friend.
Me for the next 35 days
