Hey guys, I just realized I'd better leave this message for you since I'm not going to be on full-time for the week.

Going back to Wildwood, New Jersey to spend a couple of days on the beach and boardwalk just as we did last summer. Probably gonna be seeing a lot of the same sights and doing the same things we did last time, lol. If you've never been to or seen Wildwood, please look it up sometime, it's a really cool place. :D You don't have to go all the way to Florida or Hawaii for the sparkling beaches. Remember that next time anyone makes a crack at New Jersey, lol. 8-)

That said, I will be scarce during the afternoons and evenings. I can probably work off of my cellphone as usual but it's a LOT harder to reply to messages on a cellphone screen, so don't be surprised if I take my time on that. I'll probably have a room signal at the hotel, hopefully better than at the hotel we stayed at last year. But don't count on me being readily available until after the day's done, okay?

Should be back by July 4th, I imagine. Then it won't be such an issue. Probably will still be in Jersey though with my folks for the holiday before we come back home. Maybe this year I'll actually catch a fireworks show on Independence Day, lol. I know the Wildwood boardwalk holds several shows through the summertime, and I recommend that to anyone who actually is able to get there. :nod:

So that's all, I just wanted to be sure you all knew what my availability would be this week. If I don't see much of you during the day, then I will when we're back in the room for the night. I'm checking in tomorrow, I hope you guys have a swell week. Please stay in touch, okay? :wave:

Hope you all had fun, because I don't know when or how I'm going to pay off another just yet. I hate that you have to pay for what these things offer, just let us have those features by default. Those were fancy additions that weren't that fancy, just let us have those full time too. I don't see why you can't have shoutboxes and polls whenever you like, or heck just the simple convenience of displaying multiple deviations at a time in your gallery or favorites page. I would say that that's backwards.


Guess I'll just have to deal with this later. Sorry for any inconvenience.

EDIT: Looks like I'm good to go for another three months! Special thanks to my pal :iconcqmorrell: for the extension. Thank you so much, man. :)

You guys fire away all you like on my shoutbox. :XD: While I try to find out how to make use of my polls again. :sherlock: :shrug:

Tell me about it. I can't even tell what a deviation looks like in a group message when only the title is shown. -_____________-

You know what? These group messages being in their own separate box is tedious and COMPLETELY unnecessary. Sorry DA, but you suck at cosmetic changes. :unimpressed:

R.I.P. James Horner 1953-2015 :(. The world lost a famous score composer.

Rest In Peace, James Horner. You and your talent for music will be severely and intensely missed. The music world has lost one of its greatest living legends. =(

People post pictures of their bare penises and boobs, and no one bats an eye. One person draws a cartoon character with big yet covered up body parts, and suddenly it's a problem.

So apparently Leonard was a last minute decision to The Ridoncolus Race because they wanted a magician character but figured he was just as good.

Pretty goddamn stupid choice on their part considering how much it's blown up in their faces.

I don't know if it truly has "blown up", but that explains a lot how that came about.

Well, most fans were against it as soon as it was revealed but finding out that it was last minute (which does indeed explain a lot) is just gonna make things worse. While I didn't want Owen back either, at least I can somewhat buy his return considering he was the original fan favorite even if his popularity has taken a small nosedive as of late. All Leonard's return and the reason behind it did was show me that they've still got quite a ways to go before I legitimately believe that they're trying to improve and learn from their mistakes.

The Stepbrothers have also been officially revealed, they sucked in the first episode and their reveal further cements how awful they are. They're literally described as sucking at every aspect (aside from wanting to tear each other apart limb from limb) and are basically a rehash of Amy & Samey except of a different gender and not of the same blood.

On a lighter note, I saw Inside Out earlier today. Pretty good movie.

Time will tell I suppose. Where did you receive this confirmation?

Yeah. You know I'm still not ready to trust them again yet.

Oh, good grief.

That's good. I gotta see the movie soon then.

So it looks like contestant reveals are gonna be more prominent from here on. They're also still revealing new backgrounds as well.

Now, it's the Goth's turn and... We still don't know anything about them. Crimson's still intriguing though.

Some suspect they'll be villains, but I'm kinda hoping they aren't. DipDap mentioned that either way these two are likely gonna surprise everyone with what direction they decide to go in.

I also state right now that while Ellody has one of the best designs of this cast, I'm not going gaga over her like a lot of other people on the Wiki which is currently split into two camps when it comes to her: You love her or you think people only love her for being "Scarlett with CIT's voice".

I'll believe it when I see it. I'm not speculating.

Okay.
