Re: Inspired by Vampire


I loved this song from the moment I heard it, during the movie Juno

"I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I have lost my fangs"

Cute. I thought about doing Tree Hugger, but I didn't think anyone would get it.

I'm a Christmas Unicorn! In a uniform made of gold, with a billy-goat beard, and a sorcerer's shield, and mistletoe on my nose!

I thought about doing a lot of songs from that soundtrack. They're very evocative lyrics. Sadly, taking the unknown song/creative shirt option appears to have been the incorrect choice this derby. I'll probably get over it. ;)

It certainly was. No one in the top 10 picked an obscure song.

Yeah. I think I'll live, as my coffee plunger, with some adjustment, might do well on threadless in 60 days. It is no surprise that the voting public goes for names instead of creativity (of course, once you hit the top 10-20 you're getting both name and creativity). I'm starting to get the hint that my art isn't really derby-appropriate, though.

Patch, you have skill with the vector that I sorely lack. I think you're awesome, how's that?

Most of the songs I really wanted to do were obscure but I tried going for the middle with Jack Johnson and bombed. Glad I didn't do Ladies and Gentlemen We are Floating in Space or Endless Shovel (only because I really hate spending hours on a design for a handful of votes).

True story! It's painful to work and get nothing. I'd scoffed when some of the regulars at the top had whined about spending hours for nothing, and finding any way to spend less time per design; after a win, though, it bites to be ranked around 100th. Especially since I like these better. Meh.

Sweet! I win at something! Thank you, sarcasm gods!

Seriously, though, I've just moved back to the US from living in Australia. I was living with my girlfriend of almost 4 years, the first two of which we spent doing the long distance thing. Now we're BACK to the long distance thing, for an unknown length of time. For extra fun, I'm waiting to hear back from the government about potential employment, except it's the government and bureaucracy, and I'll be lucky to hear by July. I'm in a cranky mood and enjoy spreading that fun to everyone. I think most depressing posts is a wonderful award for me.
