Hello, my name is

A better description of myself than my name's actual meaning...   I found my feelings hidden in my name. It's been a part of me since the day I was born. Is it my destiny?! Or am I going to be able to escape it?!

Lyrics - Image Eraser

Last song from this little fictional album. Samples "It's Now or Never" by Elvis Presley and the Philharmonic Orchestra for music and part of the lyrics.   Image Eraser   It's time to break free Hold me in a dream Enter the screen and pull me away From the static to the interference It's time to break free from the gleam   Into the emptiness and away from life I see you there waiting for me Is this a program? Is this a trick? All I know is that I live on the knife   It's time to break free from the falsehoods Come see this through and watch into the night Your eyes know all the ruin that appears It's time to break free and save our livelihoods   (Sampled): It's now or never Come hold me tight Kiss me, my darling Be mine tonight Tomorrow will be too late It's now or never My love won't wait   This digital age has ups and downs but we'll be alright in the rain and shine But we'll be alright   x4: It's now or never and it's time to break free

21st Coffee Breakdown

Time: [4:42 PM] It's Saturday and this is how I'm spending the rest of the afternoon. Coffee, laptop and blasting music. I accidentally spilled a shit ton of sugar in my coffee, but ah well.  I just had something to eat, I made toast with eggs and served this with rhode island sauce and avocado. I'm so sorry for the horrible title, but I'm very quickly running out of ideas here.

Art Chat (plus my work featured in this month's Game Informer!)

It's been a long time since I wrote a blog last, but this feels like a good time to do so. So much exciting stuff has been happening in the past week aghh I have to share it with y'all. Because, y'know, you're all like a second family to me.  Firstly, my work was chosen to be the official logo for this years County Fair in my town. It features the American Eclipse (coming August 21st) and our town is right on the line where the moon and sun will be crossing paths, for the perfect viewing experience  Anyways, here's the logo for that. It'll be on banners, guideline books, and possibly some merch.   And next! (I'm so damn excited about this!!) I was checking out my brother's issue of Game Informer, to find my work had been posted in the fanart section. I sent them my work back in December without high expectations, but I damn near had a heart attack seeing it in there this morning  I'm so happy it got picked, to be seen by thousands upon thousands of video game fans across the world! Keep an eye out for the newest issue!   In other related things, I think for now, I'm not going to college for Art, because I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on it, and what I really need to concentrate on is animation and coding, which I'd much rather put my money into to learn things I don't know over things I do. Also! I'm getting a printer soon to do some prints of my work! Which means some sweet, HD prints of my Green Day drawings *wink wink* And I'm working on sorting out the mess that is the bridge between public schools and homeschoolers. The State Art Symposium is coming up in April, which is the largest art show in my state, providing a wonderful opportunity to get more exposure, hopefully to some art colleges. However... Public schools and homeschoolers hold this ancient grudge against each other, so wedging into it has been tricky. I'm glad my art teacher has been so helpful sorting out all that nonsense, though haha. For now, that's all that's going on in my world.  These days, it's always art related, which I'm fine with, as I now live, breathe, and sleep art.

What is Death?

Is this death? My bones melt,
I drop away from myself,
choking air sticks to my soul,
my life dissolves in oxygen,
and my thoughts off and empty. Is dreaming death? I hide myself in clouds,
body still visible and cold,
my entire being vibrates,
the excitement of one answer
makes me restless and breathless. Is hiding death? The door sings for me,
slow and sweet,
I cannot go back anymore,
nor do I want to, to a life
meaningless and full of phantom pain. Is heaven death? It is standing in front,
on the other side of the door, smile
upon its lips. First friend,
then grandfather, and last
mother. Is she death? She does not open the door for me,
staring at the body I have no longer,
at the thoughts that fell from my pockets,
but she has not words for me,
emitting only hatred. Is pain death? She whispers something that does not reach
me, I near the glass
of the door, hand moves on its own and on this
door it sits, and in that second her words
come: “You are not welcome here.” I fall from the sky and die,
then arise and in an abandoned road
I walk. I think life is death.   Moods: suffering from a migraine since like 4 AM and now it's like 12 AM and I have to read a thing for AP Lit what is life   Stay Dirty -Pari

Lyrics - Loaded Landline

New lyrics. Enjoy.   Loaded Landline   It's all an illusion the hole in the sky the glimmer in our eye A forceful retribution   It's all in our mind that corroded everyone the faint glow of the sun the noise of our kind   Talking on this loaded landline   At our place in time a cold feel mime   All of the lives we trade for lies that degrade   Listening for hours but speaking for years   Talking on this loaded landline

Hermione has been promoted to Admin

I'm so excited to announce that @Hermione has been promoted to Admin. I've only been asking her for several years.   She will join Lone and I in helping to run the forum and make decisions about the team and any changes we're looking into.  Hermione has always been very kind and incredibly thoughtful and fair when it came to disagreements either on the team or when discussing issues around the forum. She'll be a wonderful addition to the admins and I'm very excited to have her helping in this new role. Thanks for accepting the offer, Hermione!

The Secret Alphabet

Hi everybody.  Are you wondering what this means? Keep reading this post: you'll discover it soon. Let's get to the point. I created a secret alphabet. It has a particular characteristic: every symbol of the alphabet is an intersection between the capital letter and the lowercase letter. For this reason I decided to call it "Mesoalphabet", being in the middle between the two types. Now I'm showing you how the letter H is formed: First, we write down a capital H turned 90° clockwise. Then we intersect it with the lowercase H. A new symbol is formed. Now, we have to delete some parts of the symbol to make it less similar to something related to the H and... Here's our new letter. This applies to all the letters.  The complete alphabete: If you are curious about how a letter is formed, don't be afraid to ask.  But now you have all you need, translate the sentence I posted before... Hope you like it!

Camping for Green Day: A Poem Inspired By Last Weekend

There's many ways the write about your first time seeing your favourite band live (Leeds, 05/02/17), an event I've waited for for over half my life. I chose my favourite: rambling, inconsistent poem, filled with references you may or may not get.    cover the streets  in your plastic garb throw your blankets out and run inside rain for cover like a stampede of unicorns know your enemy never forget the fallen king sized hopes and pocket sized regrets the confetti of the crystal maze dreams are made as others crushed time moves too fast what are you waiting for? drunk italians in the night constant changing colours to feel warm again the sleep that evades us all chasing a new high wrapped in foil feeling faint but still alive pinching yourself because you're still breathing shake your fist at escalators tour the world in your rucksack check in check out live on the road buses and trains start another chant we are the unreleased songs the unplayed tunes the stolen tapes we are the cereal bars in the morning the doughtnuts in the afternoon the McDonald's in the middle of the night we are the waiting blue hair running up and down waving sticks mouth is dry feet are numb heroes thanking heroes cursing politicians all we need  is love and positivity and another encore . . . anyway, here's wonderwall

2 weeks of Shenanigans

Time: [12:08 AM]   Justine, (@Billie Hoe) Today is a very special day. Two weeks ago, on January 24th, I found my online soulmate and personal favorite lil shit. I'm Miss Piggy, she's Elmo... There is a lot to be said about our friendship, but it can be described as rage and love and autocorrect. Explaining our ways of communication to an outsider might be hard, but I'm sure many of you can relate to having that one friend who you kind of hate but kind of love all the time. If I could choose one word to represent our entire friendship, I'd choose what. Because we are both very... what... But to end with some honesty; I somehow managed to find this fucking amazing human being in this small corner of the internet, and I'm truly grateful. Juste, making me laugh without standing in front of me right after I've been crying my eyes out is an accomplishment. There are few people who can make me laugh like you can, and few people who can make me forget all my troubles like you can. rage and love and autocorrect, @Billie Hoe   I killed Mufasa

Pi (poem)

Hi guys. This is the last poem I wrote. It's called "Pi" ("Pi greco" in Italian) and it's a hymn to the irrational number 3,1415. The poem has a particularity: every line consists in a number of syllables according to the Pi succession. For this reason, the number you find before every line, is the number of syllables in that line. This means that the first verse will have 3 syllables, the second 1 syllable, the third 4 and so on until the 32nd figure of Pi. I decided to stop here since the 33rd figure would have been a 0, metaphorically, a stop. I hope I explained it well enough. This is the poem, in original language (Italian): Pi greco 3 Pi greco. 1 No, 4 non è un gioco 1 ma 5 un lungo numero,  9 che, come una lettera, invoco. 2 Strano, 6 sta sempre da solo: 5 rispetto agli altri, 3 uguali, 5 tutti normali, 8 lui si vuole far notare 9 ma dato che è irrazionale, 7 lo prendono per pazzo. 9 E lui ci sta ancora più male. 3 Per terra 2 steso, 3 inizia 8 a contare la sua vita, 4 infinita. 6 Nessuno lo guarda, 2 matto! 6 Nessuno lo ascolta. 4 E lui parla, 3 invano, 3 nel vuoto: 8 sta morendo un'altra volta. 3 Le cifre 2 vanno, 7 portate via dal vento, 9 viaggiando su un soffio d'argento. 5 perse per sempre. October 2016 Here is the translation: Pi. No, it's not a joke but a long number that, like a letter, I invoke. Weird, he's alone all the time: compared to others, similar, ordinary, he wants to be different but seen that he's "irrational", they think he's crazy. And he feels even worse. On the floor, lied down, begins to tell the story of his life (in Italian "contare" means both "tell" and "count"), an infinite life. No one cares, mad! No one pays attention to him. And he keeps talking, for no reason, to no one: he's dying again. Figures flies, carried by the wind, on a silver blow. Lost forever. I hope you can understand the meaning of the poem even if my translation sucks...  It wants to say that Pi is the loneliest number in the world. From a poetic point of view, there is anaphora (repetition of "nessuno") and, in the last line, an allitteration ("perse per sempre"). I showed it to my Italian teacher and she was like "you're crazy". Then she asked me: "Do you feel like Pi?"  You can guess my answer... Hope you like it (and sorry for my grammar mistakes).

My signature

Hi guys.  I don't know how much you'll care about this, but... Today I was at school, listening to a boring Italian lesson. I had nothing interesting to do, so I started doodling my notebook with my signature. Now you have to know that, since my name/surname is 17 letters, I always sign with my initials only, to do it faster: A and Z. Basically, an intersection between an A and a Z, so that the horizontal line of the A coincides with the first line of the Z. This:   Suddenly, I noticed that there was such a strange symmetry in those lines. In fact, between the 5 triangles formed, measuring angles, I could see that 4 were right triangles, built on the sides ofthe central pentagon, while another regular triangle stayed at its bottom. But the entire shape derives from a larger right triangle. Fuck, I had never noticed that before! Obviously I spent the afternoon building the shape on GeoGebra to see if I was right:    Yes! I know what you're thinking: he's crazy.  But I guess the title of my blog allows me to do that...  Anyway, hope you like it!

My end of the deal

Okay, since @I don't care posted her beautiful lyrics in her blog, I have to hold up my end of the deal and tell you about the Twilight fanfiction me and my best friend wrote a few years ago. ~~~~ A girl called Mel Ann Choly lives with her father Brock Choly in a small town called Knifes. Her mother Phyll A. Delfia remarried and lives together with the gunslinger René Gade. Mel is deep and very sad and her eyes are tragically beautiful. Whenever she's especially sad she visits the zoo to feed the penguins with Kinder Pingui. Little does she know that these penguins aren't just regular penguins - they'e werepenguins. Every day they  turn into humanoids. One of them is Roman Tic, her love interest with oily, shining astral body. He lives in his compound with his parents Ben Evolent and Emme Pathy who adopted him as a wee baby penguin, his brothers Hugh Jabs, who is very strong, and Al Loan, who is a loner, and his sisters Elle Gance, who's a pretty penguin with eyelashes, and Fortuna Teller who knows exactly when the feeding times are. Mel and Roman are star crossed lovers, they simply cannot be. Because beastiality is illegal. Mel's classmate, Fred Zone, is in love with her and very jealous of her destined penguin so he and his friend Barbara "Barbie" Gal make it their mission to make Roman's life hell. Roman becomes fed up with his life and decides to end his life by stealing the infamous Emperor Penguins' (Agatha Power, Mel Efficient and Arro Gance) snacks.  ~~~~ That's not the complete fanfiction but a rough draft of the plot. We did this years ago and it's actually funnier than I make it sound. It got lost on someone's drive years ago and the only thing I had was the names and the .. well, rough plot. I regret telling @I don't care about it in a moment of weakness, I should have known better. Of course she would use it against me.  Fuck you Agnes. You killed Mufasa and my street cred. RIP in peace.

Justine is the ultimate dare-devil

Time: [02:37 AM] have mercy NOT COFFEE RELATED (Fuck you @Billie Hoe) (Justine is literally satan of dares)   So these are some lyrics I came up with some time ago, and they mean a lot to me emotionally, so take some time really reading this guys.   "I think it's time to grab a pair of scissors and cut out a song that is long   There once was a dachshund whose name was Minimax and he had a friend called Sven   And the dachshund Minimax he didn't like salmon but Sven loved salmon and ate with scissors."   If you translate this to Swedish it rhymes (google translate) okay Juste can kindly go fuck herself

Lyrics - We All Live On Channel Z

New lyrics, partly inspired by The B-52's. Enjoy.   We All Live On Channel Z   (sampled from The B-52's "Channel Z") Getting nothing but static Getting nothing but static Static in my attic from Channel Z   Getting nothing but static Getting nothing but static Static in my attic from Channel Z ------------------------------ It's time to resist in fires we remiss Holding onto the ashes of the bodies we have burned   It's in the air that you breathe It's in the mouths that you feed Pay for the service you could only believe   Chorus: Won't have me dying for greed or the moments I receive Transversal in the afterglow You all already know We all live on Channel Z   But now I'm...   (B-52's sample)   Open up the radio and let the rhythms flow Sleeping in the cold of the starless night   In the comets that remain streaming errors that have slain Rumble in the foundry now and the citadel around   (Chorus)   Televised wars Terrorized Scores Uphold the law or tell it to me raw   This is how it always was! The answer is "because"! All we fail to achieve was broadcasted on Channel Z   Where we're...   (B-52's sample)   (Chorus x2)

Minori-tea

Time: [11.02 PM] Earl Grey Raspberry & liquorice I've been in a major post-concert bliss/depression today (some strange combination of the two), so I've been in bed listening to Green Day while drinking tea. The show was perfect, there is no other way to describe it. They nailed every single song. I had seats (sadly) and I was in such a boring section. Everyone was just standing there, all quiet and still (they barely clapped, I swear to god) while I was jumping and screaming every single lyric like a fucking madman. I wish I was in the pit, but the show was great either way. The person they brought up on stage during Longview was really good and also had this amazing blue hair. Someone also handed Billie a Swedish flag during KFAD. This is to not mention the fact that Billie got to borrow Björn Ulvaeus guitar. I've been an ABBA fan since I was born, practically, so to say that I freaked out is an understatement. I cannot remember the last time I felt this happy. The moment I walked into the arena, and they were playing Should I Stay or Should I Go by The Clash, I felt so at home. I cried when I entered the building. I bought some merch, too! I was in such a rush that I didn't have time to properly look at everything, but I got the black t-shirt without anything on the back and the "No racism, no sexism, no homophobia" one. Overall, this was probably the best night in my entire fucking life and I can't wait until Gothenburg.

Bachelor of Illegal Arts

This semester in our Photography class we had to photograph our Campus and how we personally see it. I chose the topic Illegal Arts and photographed all the small messages I could find around the campus  I'm still not exactly sure how to operate a camera because my professor sucked at teaching us, but I like them.  #1 - "Don't validate me." #2 - "No Human is Illegal" #3 - "Color in a Dark Place" #4 - "Morons of the Underground" #5 - "#Onkomm Goes Trashcan" #6 - "That Only Just Made Sense in My Head" #7 - "You can be a nazi, but then you're simply shit." #8 - "Helpful Advice" #9 - "Done For Today" #10 - "The World Owes Me" #11 - "Fuck" #12 - "Irresistible Curiosity"

4.09 In Your Coffee(maker)

Time: [4.09 AM] See the pun? Chocolate milk flat white (Now we're moving on from chocolate milk to chocolate milk coffee.) You wanna know what's underrated? Coffee with marshmallows. Yesterday I was going home from the dentist and I had a coffee with marshmallows and whipped cream. Delicious! Pay special attention to my #aesthetically dirty boots. Note: You can most likely expect two posts today, as I will try to find something coffee-related to post about the concert (you have no idea how much I'm freaking out about this!).

Got student debt/a mortgage? Pay it off with this trivia app

No, I promise, I didn't get hacked... I just wanted to put out a little PSA for anyone who has student debt or a mortgage and a smartphone (which, let's be real, is pretty much everyone in the U.S.) about a free app that I've been playing that awards daily cash prizes to pay student loan payments and mortgages. It's called Givling and it's picking up steam. Check out this Business Insider story. You get one free play per day, meaning you can win money every day without paying anything. If you want to play, join using my invite code and you get a second free play on your first day: AW972977 Currently 10 people are in a funding queue to have $50,000 of their loans paid off. Once those are paid, another 10 will enter the queue, four selected randomly. Queue people can also get $25,000 toward a mortgage if they don't have any student debt. Let me know if you decide to join and what you think of it. Good luck!

How is this Happy

Kind, smiling eyes, bestowing happiness on blackness
of soul and mind. Basking in your light once more, just
as if you were never gone; here now, here forever.
Hold my hand and I am home, free from the evil
of the void; the emptiness that grows and grows.
Eyes burn and I do not know why; why
do I cry? Why do you cry?
How is this happy, for I was once
positive it would never arrive. Yet here you
stand with me, playing of flowers
of flowerpots and dew that glistens
upon them. Trembling, trembling, trembling. Shaking
awake in despair, distraught and disheveled,
wailing into the empty night sky that pours
from inside the void you have left me. Nothing
to hold in comfort but the memory of
the dead I dream of at night. How is this happy, for I was once
positively so, and then I lost
you.   Stay Dirty -Pari
