Jam Session: I just don’t know..

This is awesome! Saw this on my FB feed and had to share! Love it when things come together unexpectedly.. Their talent together makes me all warm and fuzzy inside..  like there is still some semblance of good in this world and its through the medium of music. 🙂

Disappointment.

The worst feeling.

It swallows you whole, it tears down your self worth and ruins ones ability to make decisions and feel confident with them..

It’s exhausting.. Saddening.. Depressing.

It feels like one mistake after another and even with blessings to be thankful for, it still makes me sad. Have to fight the feeling I suppose.. This too shall pass..

Oh the things you find and see at ECCC. Nerds.. Geeks.. Gamers.. Larpers… Cosplayers….Merchants, Super Stars.. so many things to see and do and not enough time.

This year we only opted for a one day pass to check out what was going on at this years ECCC. It seems to be getting bigger and bigger every year so its exciting to see all the people that come out to participate. Lots of people really do go all out and its inspiring to see their work and dedication.. I wish I could have rocked my Soraka Cosplay.. but I figured wearing that at Sakuracon or Pax Prime would be more appropriate..

We were at ECCC for a total of about 4 hours.. Our main goal was to #1 – Meet Yaya Han so she could sign the art work she was commissioned to model for and #2 look for any new cool artwork to add to the fold. After those two things, we were free to roam and look at all the cool gadgets, gizmos and people.

We scored meeting Yaya Han (bf has the pic of that) and having her sign the artwork that Echo Chernik had done of her in steampunk. When the bf had bought it, he had asked Echo to add some detailing to the frame that the art was set in.. she took her time and drew in the owl with beautiful detail in gold marker, making an awesome contrast against the black frame.. Once I have it mounted on the wall, I will take a pic of it and replace the picture below.

Now that we had goal #1 completed, we went back to Echo’s table to see what new work she had.. she has many many MANY beautiful pieces mind you and it’s so hard to find something that you don’t like.. We saw two that really stood out so we put them aside and took a walk to see what else was out there.. There were so many things to look out! But ultimately we decided on Svetlana. She reminded us both of the League of Legends character Jinx.. Just a more rough bass-ass version of her. =) All in all it was a fun trip to ECCC.. Hopefully next year we can attend again!

How cute is that? Google honors the “Where the wild things are” author by creating a doodle that plays on the google homepage. 🙂 Happy 85th Birthday Maurice Sendak! That was an awesome book when I was a kid.. wish more books were written like yours 🙂 I hope some of you guys saw it.. was a super cute animation that went from the beginning of the book to the end with a little birthday cake for Mr. Sendak. 🙂

On another note.. Another Monday. Bleh.. Another Run. T-minus 12 days and counting before the half.. Why do I always sign up for self torture. GEEZ.
