Yeah. So lately, I posted a journal stating my deviantart account reached over 12k pageviews.. which is actually amazing. Didnt think my shitty art would get me that many views.

Despite all these views, i still only have 220 followers -_-

Which bothers me IMMENSELY, because my parents are very antagonistic and think all my art is a waste of time, no to mention my dad's sexist, a bit racist, and pretty homophobic (including transphobic, transgenderphobic, basically sociallyphobic), my dad just cant comprehend people's sexual orientations and argues saying people with sexual orientations of other statuses dont know what they want and their stupid... 

So. yeah... 12k views and 220 follows bothers me, because i still cant seem to prove anything, even after about a decade of art and over 2 years of DeviantArt...

Ok so this time last year around, I begun doing livestreams and video gaming seeing how art went down the shitter and no one supports my work etc etc., anyway, so seeing how i just dont want to do art anymore and how my friends are all stereotypical white people who dont care about school and they just wanna game, I might as well try to get into what they do... minus the potential drugs and stupidity.

Anyway, so ive invested A LOOOOT of money into my studio over the years, with all my gaming and music (House, Vaporwave, etc etc). Ive set up my SNES, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, two ACER HD Tvs for Dual-Screen Gaming, a pad for my Laptop, a crapton of games ive collected over the years (including: COD Ghosts terrible game, Titanfall series, Halo series, Battlefield 3 - 4), a dart board, posters, gaming chair, gaming RAZER mouse... basically ive spent a lot of money over the last 10 years, and its all part of my gaming studio now. Ive probably taken a week's worth of time to set up the place and trust me, it's not fun setting up all that stuff by yourself. especially when you have a entire stage set including Channel Mixer, two heavy-duty stage speakers, disco ball and stage lights.

So fast forward to about September 2016 and now for some fucking reason my familly wants to do voice overs and stupid shit for movies and commercials all because a friend of theirs sold them on this stupid idea that wont work. They probably got onboard cause my parents are just so shitty and cant seem to do anything worthwhile. 

They think they can make a living out of working with a microphone and working on some dingy website doing voice overs and stuff. Thats all fine with me, they do whatever they want no matter how fucked up it is.

The problem with this isnt that their trying to do this, its that they wont take my advice, their wasting their money, and they clearly didnt think this through.

They bought a 1000$ microphone for NO REASON. Literally, I shit you not, they bought a 1k dollar microphone even though I told them they dont need a microphone thats so expensive. They can EASILY buy a 300$ one, maximum, and use post-production software, that I HAVE to easily make their shitty microphone sound like a 1k microphone. But they didnt listen to me and now they have 1k dollar hole burning in their wallet.

They've needed to buy a new computer because our old one is a Windows Vista, so it needs to be upgraded just to properly run some software like Propellerheads Reason and Pro Tools, which is fine with me, the vista was plagued with bugs and viruses. I shit you not, One day i was on there and Norton Anti-Virus found 16 trojan programs that night ALONE. Its cause my parents dont know crap about their computer, they dont even know how to properly do certains things, and its not like they want to listen to my superior advice that WOULD SAVE THEM MONEY AND TIME...

Them buying a new computer isnt the problem, its that they bought it IN THE WRONG ORDER. They thought they should buy the monitor first! So now we have a 26 inch retina monitor running Windows fucking Vista... perfect. And they complain they dont have money to do what they need to do. Well no fucking shit you dont have money, you blew off a thousand dollars for a microphone you didnt need and now 250$ for a 26 inch you didnt need. They could have easily used the shitty Windows Vista monitor, wouldve worked fine PLUS they would be able to use the microphone RIGHT AWAY instead of wait 2 thousand years just to get enough money to buy a stupid new computer.

And if thats not bad enough, they have ZERO logic. They know they need a recording studio, likely, although they could just take my fucking advice and use post-production skills to easily make it sound like they were recording in an actual studio - and them knowing they need a studio is fine... but the problem is they dont know where they are gonna put the studio even though they went through all that trouble buying the stupid microphone and the monitor.

They didnt plan out shit.

And now they want to set up a recording studio in MY gaming studio, where im working constantly trying to re-organize the shit THEY leave in MY room. I shit you not. They thought id be great to keep an inherited plastic fugly tree in my gaming room that takes up a quarter of the wall and a 20 pound wooden table thats BROKEN folded up in my room, not to mention some stupid tv from the 2000s on one of those GIANT tv tables. And the closet thats in the room is literally FULL to the top with stupid crap, guitar cases, papers, and just... crap in general things we dont need AT ALL. And they always complain saying its too messy when its ALWAYS THEM thats making the fucking mess. We spent hours cleaning out rooms months ago, and then it takes less than a week for those rooms to be full of crap all over again.

Its like my parents are hoarders or some fucking shit...

With all the crap they dump in my studio, less than a quarter of the room is actually available to me and all the rest is full of stupid crap ive been trying to make them move out. Amongst that junk is my old drumset when I was ALMOST a drummer for a metal bad called Drink Some Liquid Bleach. Ive had the drums for a VERY long time, but nowadays i dont use them, so I decided to take them apart and move them to make more room. But OF COURSE my parents get furious and they want the drums to stay in the room -_- even though Ive told them about 100 times why they need to go. I mean id keep them if we moved things around and soundproofed the studio, then id actually play my drums and my metal bass guitar and stuff...

Anyway... so now my parents want to EVICT me from my studio so they can follow this bullshit dream of theirs and their recording.

They wouldnt have to do any of this if they just listened to me and helped me clear out the room so they can have room of their own. I shit you not, they could EASILY clear out the closet and everything inside soundproof that and set up a wall and a door and there you go. Its big enough, simple enough, and wouldnt cost that much. Wall doesnt need to be fancy, neither does the door...

Whatever..

  • Drinking: Not my Smirnoff Vodka, thats for sure.
So last week some friends and I hung out together as we normally do. Ever since we turned 18 a long while ago, all my friends, or at least the ones I hang out normally with, have always felt entitled to drink. Mind you, they've been illegaly drinking while underage for, from what I know, over a year - but now that they are legally allowed to drink, they've always felt it was obligated to drink whilst hanging out. Every time I hang out with them, oh look there's a bottle of fucking Captain Morgan. It like they suddenly stopped realizing that they dont need alcohol to have a good time. I remember the old days where we used to use our money to buy Coke and Doritos, but now that's all been lacking since a lot of our money, or at least my friends' money, has been being used to buy beer and stuph - so all the Coke we used to drink and the Doritos have all begun to disappear...

And speaking of disappear, alcohol is really expensive. One of my friends uses all his money to buy rum... I mean, i would assume so, I never hear about or see him buy anything other than alcohol and every time I hang out with him I always see a bottle of sum stupid stuph lying around his house..., Like, last time we hang out, we went out to the store and bought Palm Bay which is, I guess, like Crush but with 5% in it and some Smirnoff Ice Vodka. The total was around 20 dollars, not that expensive but not that cheap either considering the fact that you could get 2 two liter Coke Bottles for less than half that price, not to mention you cant get drunk off of Coke...

Obviously the alcohol didnt last all that long. I personally drank two Palm Bays in over 2 1/2 hours while my friends drank 2 Palm Bays and a Bud in less than 2 hours. So I guess you could say im not the most enthusiastic drinker, if any... To be honest, I hate drinking. I just find it a waste of time, health, and money. I mean, look at all the things bad people can do while inebriated. My opinion, drinking isnt worth your life. I once went out to a Sports Pub with my friends and hustled some pool and darts., Im actually quite good at playing darts, contrary to what my sarcastic father would think seeing how he would think I throw darts like an idiot... - I had a tall rum and coke. That ONE tall Rum and Coke took me over 3 hours to drink HALF, and the whole time both my friends and my father were trying to get me to chug the rest of it and take off my clothes >_>
Yeah... Meanwhile they had about a Bud an hour, or if you're your my dad, youd have likely twice as much in that time frame.

And goes to show too, that both my friends and my father, both have problems, some of them more than others. Those Palm Bays and the Buds they had? Those were all gone in around 2 maybe 3 hours. I went to bed that night without even having any of the Smirnoff Vodka I bought, however I woke up to find that about half of it was already drank by my friends. And if that wasnt bad enough, my parents found the Vodka too later on that night and began literally smuggling vodka. They took the vodka I bought and kept it to themselves without my permission even after telling them I was rightfully mine, seeing how I bought it, they still kept it and drank the whole thing themselves practically instantly, I was pretty furious.

I found them the next day with another Smirnoff, just like the one I bought for me and my friends. I asked them if they were drinking the Vodka that belonged to me. I thought they bought me another Smirnoff seeing how selfish they were and how they wanted to make it up to me., but rather, they get mad and tell me the Vodka they bought that day was also just for them. So not only did they take and drink the Vodka I bought for me and my friends, they DID NOT go and buy a new one...

I still to this day, have not gotten the Smirnoff they owe me.
