[Howlitzer] Mr. Raccon Dog?

This one’s a little confusing on how it happened, it stemmed from the Doki Doki Lit. Club garbage, because a certain someone insisted on sharing his experience, so he wouldn’t have to go through it alone. It ended up as absolute garbage with pretty gimmicks/tricks.

A poem featured words, while listening, a certain someone nitpicked, Raccoon, and Night. Then he jokingly said tanuki. Then I decided, WHY NOT?! And after quite a bit of time spent working on it, it happened.

Summary : I don’t know if he’s a raccoon, or a dog, but whatever he is, he exists.

Currently..

Currently…… there’s… nothing really going on.

I lost track of time reading stuff instead of doing what I should’ve been doing, drawing.

I’ve been trying to get a job, but the amount of rejections are piling up.
No credentials, I guess. At least I’m transparent about what I’d be spending money on..

You wouldn’t believe how many entitled twats I can see/find on MMOs, the money is literally tossed away. Especially on MapleStory and El$word.

I’m hoping I’ll have some form or luck soon… at this rate, I’ll have to go with seasonal and see where that goes, even then, that’s just pitiful desperation which pisses me off a little. Employers are always like that, so of course I’d be unhappy.

Otherwise, I’m working on quite a few new projects/huge changes of pace on my end… Hopefully I can pull it off.

I have many, many drawing plans, and without good sleep, it’s difficult. Also, without good food.

My dinner was 2 grilled cheese burger bun sandwiches, 4 hot dogs/buns, and 1/3rd of a cracker/saltless pack, with 3 cheese slices.
recipe : cheese, butter up buns, toast inner buns, flip, apply cheese, toast outer buns while cheese melts, cover if need more cheese-melting heat.Hot dogs : boil 4 hot dogs in water, add a little ketchup for the quickest snack available.
Crackers : Get cheese singles, break into bits, make tiny sandwiches by snapping crackers into as half-as possible shapes.

And that’s how you get a sad meal. Man I’m pathetic.

I should probably eat another bite of something… anything.

Anyways, here’s to hoping for another healthy major upload plan! Hands, do my bidding, brain, ship all that you want. I still don’t know my true motive of art, but by continuing at it, I may find a true passion once and for all.

If I don’t get demotivated by declined and denied applications.

Thus far

So, up to now, not much has happened. My PC keeps giving problems.

Chances are, we now need thermal paste for this crap box.
Everything’s been pretty difficult since Smokey’s passing, unironically almost none of which had to actually deal with him itself, in fact, it’s laughable. Two people over there are unaffected because they don’t care about anyone that isn’t them. You get a fake cat lover, and someone who can’t give a damn about cats unless it’s either her personal cat, or if she’s the one giving it attention.

That aside, chalking up all my mobage statuses.
Granblue Fantasy – zero.
Zero no Sho – I rerolled because I wanted the new dragon man they introduced. Ragiesu, I believe. I can see why romanizing is such a bitch. I mean, really.
Tales of a ray –  NADA.
Fate/Grand Order – NADA. Only.. NOTHING!
Fate/Grand Order JP – I just started, and already, nada. Crap rolls, oh my god.

I still feel sad that I don’t quite have the phone space for Omnia Opera anymore, at least, not currently, plus it’s kind of tedious to progress in. It’s quite fun to play with other people, because it has a 3P multiplayer mode, you can have a minimum of 2 people playing together, so it’s great with a friend if you’re being random.

On my boy’s end…
Granblue Fantasy – every 2 weeks, it feels like he gets a SSR.
Tales of ray – ??? I mean, I guess getting a lot of Tear stuff, his technical favorite waifu, counts. The event’s over now, so that’s sad.
FGO – Jeanne. He didn’t want Jeanne.
FGO JP – He keeps getting his waifus. I mean, really, they are characters he really likes, and wanted. And none of them are 5*.

In MMO status.
Elsword – We’re revisiting it, but KoG pulled another BS move. Voice mods are affected heavily, especially with their 3rd job coming up. Currently, Ain’s data is now a V4. KoG Team MASSFILE V.04 – I can’t find any bypasses, work-arounds, or decryptors. Old voice files still work, the game will still process V.03 files. So, this becomes problematic when they add new stuff. Fortunately, not too big of a deal, except they completely moved SFX, which used to be stored in data069.kom, which is ALSO V.04

So, it’s pretty bad to have fun with it, the English dub sucks worse than their initial April Fool’s joke, the sound/audio is poorly done, they even dropped Eve’s processing, can’t even keep a standard, huh, KoG?

In Mabinogi, things are going way too well, I’m making gold pretty easily because I keep getting good gold making things, and on top of that, we have so much Saga abuse. Every EP10 clear is 30k, multiple by – AT LEAST – 10 characters minimum, across our two accounts. That’s a minimum of 300k x 2, 600k a day. Bank fees can be covered on either Wednesday, or by using an extra 2 characters, depending. Gold bags also end up as a personal refund of 4,900 gold per. I have much to buy, still. I’m such a fashion whore. Also working on getting us both Dan skills, which is a pain. Firebolt was a bitch to clear.

We haven’t touched PSO2 or LaTale in a while.

Aside that, it’s mostly been.. I dunno, combined with drawing, and I had a little music fun here and there.

Plus, we have an actual copy of Tales of Destiny : Director’s Cut, now. Fresh from Japan, apparently! It’s the premium box, too! The glorious art book!

We also plan to attempt to go through Zestiria and finish up Berseria… but they’re both god-awful boring… The progression in both is also somewhat identical, which is disappointing…

I also looked into voice files for certain games, like Fairy Fencer, and PC Cold Steel. I don’t think we’re going to buy this third version, but it has additional clips that are marvelous. Besides, if they make a new PS4 version, I’m hoping it’d be identical to the currently superior PC version. I have VERY BAD MEMORIES with PCs, okay?!

Also have Extella extracted. I feel bad for pirating for files for personal fun. You’d think I’d actually play what I download. Well, a damn shame.

Anyways, I still have many files to sort out, many voice clips to extract, lots of things to delete, but, so far, my drive recovery has had some decent progress. I’m happy I didn’t lose my Rockman music collection, though, or the whole Eiyuu Densetsu 6 to 8 stuff. The evolution discs are a pain, but less of a pain than the original games!

That about sums up every little thing we’ve been doing.

I also need to finish Ys VIII, which I find amazing, and far more fun than anything I’ve played on a computer recently. To top that off, I can honestly say, the PS4 and Vita have so many differences, that it’s a nice experience to even go through both, if you like Adol and his adventures, anyways.

Rest in Peace (Side – Howlitzer)

9/23/2017, 8:00 AM – Now Resting in Peace. ???? ~ 2017

This is a tale of what I know about a magnificent loyal animal that died recently.
Perhaps it was from old age, perhaps it was from poisoning, perhaps it was from other causes.
Regardless, he’s gone.
There may or may not be a Side – Grimmelkin, it’s up to him, really.
I just wanted to share my thoughts on our plot of land here.

Originally, I wanted to put this off for Monday or somethin’, to reminisce…
But, I’ve decided to do it now because I’ve got to go through with quite a few plans for the time being. I’m behind in everything, and on top of that, my boy needs a break.
That cat was more or less, his cat, and well, it’s like we both lost a friend.
There’s no time for pain and grief just yet, but at the same time, I can’t feel sad, I only have happy memories.

This cat is dubbed Smokey, also spelled as Smokie.
This isn’t an ordinary cat, and I can’t say anyone even owned this cat.
I only knew this cat by chance, to begin with, but I feel sad because I saw it often, compared to my boy, who lived with this dear old cat for most of his life up to now. From his elementary days to now, actually. That cat saw him from Elementary up until he graduated High School!

He died, mostly in peace, but from what I’m told, the previous few days, he meowed almost as if he was in pain, or perhaps wanting attention. I know not, but it was the sounds I heard over Skype, if only for a few days… I saw the cat previously before that, and he seemed to be doing fine, with the exception that he didn’t quite eat as of late.

We know this cat’s been around, and he was in his 20’s when he passed. We estimate him to be about 24~26, give or take. Which would make him 199? ~ 2017.

Howlitzer Status 2 / Rant

So, with my main hard drive more or less up and running/repaired, I ended up with a new problem.

The retard I denounced as family, I brought up needing a power supply due to things being problematic.

He decided to install Windows 10 on the old hard drive.
What does he do? Since he’s a retard, he ended up not unplugging and installing Windows 10 onto my E drive. A DRIVE THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN TOUCHED.
IT SHOULDN’T HAVE EVEN BEEN PLUGGED IN.

He, being the genius he is, thinks that his new fancy PC parts will be all nice, sleek, and better. Oh, new motherboard that uses DDR4 ram! LIKE I CARE.
I have my PC with interchangeable parts with someone important.
Anything happens, we’ve got each-other.

What does this retard do, though? Doesn’t confirm any problems and installs Windows 10 as the genius he is, because 10 is “better”, and “starts up faster”. I DO NOT CARE FOR START UP TIMES.
HELLO? I GREW UP WITH GAMES THAT REQUIRED LOADING TO BEGIN WITH.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE PS2 GAMES IS NOTORIOUS FOR IT’S “LONG LOADING TIMES”. ANOTHER ONE IS ALSO KNOWN TO HAVE “LONG LOADING TIMES”.

I play many types of games, and I’ve put up with many types of issues. Sonic ’06? I can genuinely say most people who didn’t play it and sheep over it, don’t know shit, like a retard I know. How can I say it? Because I’ve played it in several ways, and forced myself to see the mess through to the end.

Do I care about long loading times? Slightly, but does it actually matter? Not really. Why? Because in the end, I’m going to be doing something, right? Why cry over 3 more seconds if it’s a fun game?
To begin with, I’ve faced all sorts of loading issues, even old hardware causing loading problems. What is 3 seconds on something that WORKS?

So, yeah. I was supposed to be looking for a job, and now what do I have to do? I HAVE TO LOOK FOR ALL THE DATA I LOST DUE TO A RETARD.

Okay, so here’s how it’s been for the past week.

Last week – PC crashed. I had to do a lot of research into the problem, and the incident started due to my slowly rotting power supply.

I asked the idiot that built this PC to replace it, but as you know, that never works out to what I want. Of course, I’ve been having occasional shutdowns forever.

Okay.

So, here’s what I ended up doing to resolve it. We tried reverse-cloning, apparently that didn’t work anyways.

I ended up finding out it’s a common permissions problem, because chkdsk rewrote permissions. Of course, any data corrupted to begin with would happen due to sudden shut-offs.

I’m risking my data but I backed up almost everything important to me, fortunately.

However, I’m worried of using my third drive since  if I’m super, super unlucky, a dying power supply can fry everything.

However, I’m probably going to continue onward anyways.

Regardless…

Last Wednesday, it went down, we double checked the hard drive health over the following 4 days, on Monday I asked/brought up my PC, of course my woes were unheard. I’ll bring that up later, for now, I’m much too happy and much too tired.
I’ve also began YS VIII VITA and feel choppy after enjoying YS VIII PS4 for a short time.
I may go back to Celceta and actually finish that, though. I don’t want to get too used to Ys VIII’s mechanics.

So, for now, I’m pretty happy things are back the way they were last week.

I have no idea what else to say/feel/think. I actually need to sleep, I’ve been lacking it since I’ve been worried over this hard drive. It’s a long story and has value.

I’m how many weeks behind schedule?!

I really need to get back into the spirit of things!

I shouldn’t even be having blank periods, so while everything is as it is, I’ll try to get myself back into gear and get a drawing done.

Scooby Doo – A.. pocalypse?!

Apparently………. there’s a very… hardcore take on the series… It’s not a fanfic, but it sure as hell sounds like one. This is an official Scooby Doo comic, courtesy of DC comics.
I’ve no idea what to think about. I was going to call it quits until I saw this beautiful piece of… somethin’.

RCO003_1488988381.jpg

From snippets I read, Velma ended up creating nanites that more or less, caused things to happen.
Shaggy looks beautiful. I’m afraid of the new Scooby, he also has a more steroid induced build.

I’m a little confused on how one can think of these things, and I kind of want to see an animation of this. It’d be very wrong with the current recurring voices they have.
And I’d feel even more sorry for Frank Welker, who has to do a double take as is, but then has to take it to new levels if this were ever to be animated in any form/way.

It’s out there. It’s much like evil… it’s out there.
