Yes, I am the LunaYoshi that used to post endless pics of Yoshi fancharacters on my site, Luna's Yoshi Sanctuary, for about 10 years.

For the record, if I don't have you friended, it's because I don't know who you are and I'm very cautious about what I post to the "public" here on LJ.

If I know you or -should- know you based on our interests, please post here and let me know why I should add you to my Friends list. It'd help a bunch. I'd hate to exclude buddies. <3

Also, where you know me from is a plus. Know me from Luna's Sanctuary? Team Artail? Deviant Art? Say as much and I'll probably add you. M'kay?

Anybody have any recommendations for genuinely scary movies?

I can only think of 4 that scared me shitless. The Amityville Horror (the 70s version), Blair Witch Project, The Ring, and Paranormal Activity. Those slashers, like "The Hills Have Eyes" and "Saw" and all those other "horror" movies don't do it for me. It's just a bunch of blood and gore. I want, like, genuinely "HOH MY GOD SCARY" movies. Not movies that startle you, but ones that scare you to the core. Movies where less is more.

Any recommendations?

EDIT: ABBBEEHHHHHH. (Yeah, still watching The Ring.) She's cute in whatever roll she plays, I swear.

So I was peeling this banana, and I noticed the Chiquita sticker. Blah blah, sticker.

... Except Chiquita isn't on it. It's fucking Ai Ai from Super Monkey Ball.



WHAT IS AI AI DOING ON A BANANA. SEGA, WHAT. THE. FUCK.

Though I guess it does make a little sense. Monkey.... banana.... BUT WHAT KIND OF PRODUCT PLACEMENT IS THAT? It doesn't even say who it he is. He's just THERE, staring into my SOUL, DARING me to peel that last strip off and consume what has been undoubtedly cursed by monkey to be deceitfully delicious fruit.

Damn you, Sega. Damn you.

Hey, peeps who have played Final Fantasy 9:

Is the reason it's so universally canned because the characters are chibi, or is it really not that good a game?

7 bored me within an hour, 8 bored me within an hour, but the clips I've seen of 9 look really interesting, probably BECAUSE the characters are chibi-looking.  But I don't want to invest, like, hours of time if the game isn't really that good.

Any input would be appreciated.

I know I say this a lot, but Luna was the name of my parakeet and Yoshi was one cool dinosaur in 1998. The username stuck.

I feel bad watching old Friends episodes because it feels like I'm being insensitive to race or other cultures homehow..I know the epis I'm watching are half-based in London, but... that's it,  y'know?  They go back to NY and that's it. I feel like I'm being socially insensitive somehow. I mean, I think Britons have the best accent ever and all that, but watching Friends past season 4 feels like I"m being a douche somehow.

I don't know. Am I being a stuck-up American somehow? Am I somehow assuming everyone has my accent/language, because I know I do at certain points.  I don't want to offend people, but I'm already assuming stuff as I watch these old season 5 Friends episodes. I don't want to alienate anyone, but it just seems like they do it for me.  I dont' know.

I don't want to alienate anyone. I just.... wanna watch a show.

NiGHTS' ending makes me frickin' cry every time. Why, game? Why you so good? It's so pretty...

Meh, if nothing else, watch it for the pretty 1996 CGI.

Maya 8 is seriously impressing me right now. I know they have a billion options, but because got interested in doing 3D scenery, I looked up some tutorials to no avail. They were all out of date and referenced options that don't exist anymore. Well, figuring it couldn't hurt, I went nosing through the Fur options.

Dude, there's not just effing fur in there. There's grass and clouds and simplistic trees and fire and bubbles and vines and snow and.... snakes. Lol, my attempts with them all are such a mess right now. I gotta figure out how to adjust the color schemes for variety.

What the hell is "rice fiber?" Looks like swirly Qs. ...And they crashed my program, so screw that.

OMG CRYSTALS. UGH. I am going to have SO MUCH FUN with this stuff!

Same I've been for 6 years or so now-- Arabian dancer, as the costume tag says.  Gotta utilize my skinny physique while I still have it.  It just... kinda sucks when Halloween night is RIDICULOUSLY COLD.

Also... purple velvet is win.

(... yeah, I based my character's outfit on my halloween costume.)

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Honestly? I couldn't choose just one. I'd pick every person who's ever seen past my awkward exterior and treated me with compassion and understanding and give them the peace of mind they granted me as I was growing up.  Being shyer than hell, it was easy to get picked on, but a few friends were so kind to me dispite my selective mutism, and I'm so eternally grateful for it, that I'd love to repay it to them somehow, though I don't know how exactly.

I'm friends with quite a few of them on Facebook and I'm still working up the courage to tell them how much they mean to me. It's difficult.  You'd think anyone would be happy to hear they made a difference, but some people get all awkward about it, and I'm scared they'll regret it if I tell them.

Holy shit, this comic is so frickin' awesome.

And the artist never took art classes. Jealous, much? Holy hell.

I hope she's making money off of it.  Talent like that deserves to be recognized.

Also, ... something about the 20s and 30s makes me real melancholy and nostalgic.  It... makes me miss my grandparents, though one is... you know, STILL ALIVE.  Makes me want to ask her about her childhood, though she grew up in the 30s, not the 20s, so it wouldn't be entirely related, but still.  If the comic was in color, I probably wouldn't get so misty about it.  That sepia tone has a very odd authenticity to it.

Sheesh, I've taken many art classes and STILL don't understand comic paneling like I probably should.  How does one know how to box things in properly? I don't get it.  This is why I can never be a graphic artist.  I don't. Get. BOXES.

Also... Mordecai reminds me of my old cat. Sniff... God, I miss him so.  At least I still have my Elwyn. <3

EDIT: I always thought her style looked an awful lot like Candy Palmer's, and it turns out they're friends IRL, so I guess it makes sense. God, they're both so talented.

I use it because... Hell. I've been using worrynet.com's wallpapers for the past year.  They're precious.  Plus.. yay, calendar!

I need to find a better place to put my Maya textures than on the desktop. It gets cluttered real fast.

Also, um... that "topsecret2" folder? Not what it looks like. It's a link to my website files on my slave drive.

Christ, guys, I've been hearing this song on TV, on the Radio, everywhere and can't figure out what it's called because I hardly ever hear the lyrics. I wish I had a keyboard to duplicate the notes, but alas, i'm going to have to go by memory or something like it.

I heard it today during VH1's Skinniest Celebs, and I know I've heard it on a bunch of other commercials. Something tells me I heard it on the ONE episode of Grey's Anatomy I ever watched (the season before's finale? I forget) but it's just this piano rift with lots of reverb that kind of gives you the sense of melancholy, loneliness, or longing without diving into a C-minor key.

With my limited knowledge of keys myself, I can't pinpoint it, but I know it's not C major or minor. It's just two notes, then two slightly flatter notes, then a bit sharper notes, then back down to the flatter notes, and it keeps repeating in this heavenly, hypnotic state. If I had to guess, I'd say it goes "C, C, B, B, E, E, B, B." But then, I'm half-tone deaf and I haven't taken piano lessons in years.


I know I'm being horribly vague, but normally I find my songs via lyrics search engines, and I don't know any lyrics to this song. Please please please help me if you know what I"m talking about?

BTW, I think the song came out semi-recently and is sung by a guy, if that helps at all.
