This shows how much I update this. Well I change interests about as much as I change socks, but I think I found something that is keeping my interest. I've been doing some tutorials and started drawing. I'm never was able to draw, but I never took it serious. Since taking it serious I can't seem to put the pencil down. I think I'm liking it better than writing, just for the fact that I keep getting writer's block. I've been doing pencil drawings for now since if I mess up it's easily erased. I'd be too pissed if I started an ink drawing or marker drawing, put alot of time into it and then messed up. I might eventually move to other artistic avenues such as colored pencils and stuff, but for now I'm content. Please check out some of my art and leave some feedback. I do enjoy constructive criticism and praises, just as long as it is in good taste.
If I wrote "not too much to say" I think I would be defeating the purpose of joining a writing community. There are so many ways we can describe ourselves, but yet I always find this difficult. Do I really know myself? Without getting all philosophical, I could just write the following:
I joined the Elftown community to get inspiration and help inspire. Also, this site will allow me to keep my writing more organized. There's nothing like the feel of a pen between your fingers, but sometimes its more convenient to type. I just got over a long bout of writer's block by forcing myself to just start writing and it worked. I have an idea now and it has developed and grown more than I imagined. I've started writing it, but I need to get it on some kind of electronic form.
I'm done getting side tracked, but if anyone needs some ideas or has some ideas or just wants some kind of help, contact me.
**Recently written poem**
Twisted images of an imagination unknown
The dreams of a life forsaken
Shattered memories of a forgotten past
Sanity is but a crumbled page in the book of my life
Distorted images tell the tale of what once was
Followed by what has not yet been written
A glimmer of hope shines upon this novel life
Darkness cast aside into obscurity
Set free to start again this act of mindless self-indulgence
************old stuff that I felt I should keep for some reason************
It's rare that I update this place, but I felt it was due. A few things have changed. I have my 84 Camaro and no it doesn't come with a complimentary mullet. I saw some homies back in Michigan. A lot changes in 3 years though. I should visit more often. But would they even want me there more often? I'm going to try and get some new PICs up soon, but can't promise anything.
I'm 22 and I don't care for 15 year olds messaging me saying, "waz up" or "hi" please! I beg you, don't message me unless you have something coherent to say. I wish I had one of those "Take back Elftown" banners. I would sport that. I'm not much of an artist when it comes to drawing, but I love writing. My grammer is not always perfect, but I try.
I need help with this place; it lacks art. I need some wicked cool drawlings. I like evil stuff like, demons, dragons, wizards, and other demonic looking stuff, but beggers can't be choosers. If your willing to help me out let me know, I may be able to repay you in some way.
I'm jealous of all the people with a bunch of things on their page. I wish I could be as creative, but no, I'm deprived when it comes to creativity. Only ever so often does it show in my writing. I try with the guitar, but can only seem to play other bands' music. Am I cursed? Am I lacking the part of the brain responsible for such art? I truly do envy all those to which it comes with ease. Never take it for granted!

Ozzfest 2005! A time for heavy metal and partying. I bought my ticket and my friend's tickets back in May. We eagerly waited for 2 months for what was going to be a badass show. We had everything we needed (except for sun block). We even bought a 12 pack of Budweiser to catch a small buzz before entering, because we knew from the beginning things would be expensive. We even drank in front of police as they busted the people next to us for smoking pot. When we got in we realized we were wrong, things were more expensive than we thought. Cheap a$$ beer from Uzbekistan was $6 a cup and miller was $7.50. Lets just say money went kind of fast. What made it even worse was the fact that I dropped 1-½ beers (equal to burning $9). Before I get into more negative things let me talk about the good times I had while I was there. The second stage was awesome or at least what we seen of it. We were a little late and still had to drink a 12 pack before entering. The bands we did see though were
good. I won’t forget the look on my friend matt’s face as he was lifted up to body surf in the crowd during As I lay dying’s set. The headlining band for the second stage, the one and only Rob Zombie, kicked a lot of a$$. I can still hear More Human Than Human playing in my head. As Zombie finished his set we turned our attention to the main stage. At the time my friend matt and I were feeling a pretty good buzz from the few beers we did get down. This is where shit goes wrong. Being drunk and stupid, matt and I went down towards the pavilion where the more expensive seats were. There was a ledge that separated the back row of seats from the general admission seats (lawn seats). We decided to hop up on it to get a better look at Black Label Society. We were immediately warned to get down. So we did. This is where the average person would stop and go sit down, but hey I was drunk. So being stupid and thinking I was clever I waited and watched the security guard. When he looked away I sprang up and jumped over the ledge and sat down. Matt tried to yell up and warn me but it was too late, because there in front of me was the security guard. He grabbed my arm and started to escort me towards the stairs back down to the lawn seats. At first I didn’t realize how much trouble I was in, I thought I would be let go and given a strict warning. I was wrong. When I realized where he was taking me I pleaded and begged to be given another chance. I said please don’t make me miss Ozzy. He just looked back with a grin on his face and said, “Nope, shows over for you”. I thought about breaking loose and running since the grip on my arm wasn’t that strong, but he already radioed me in and if I would have ran I wouldn’t have got to enjoy the concert. I would have been in hiding and could have got in more trouble. So as I was walking through the parking lot back to my car I was in disbelief how a day that was supposed to be one of the highlights of my summer could be ruined by being a little stupid. After the $50+ I spent on their expensive shitty a$$ beer and over priced merchandise, this shit happens. I wasn’t only pissed because I ruined the concert for me; I ruined it for my friend matt and veronica. They came out to the parking lot, as I laid there sprawled out on the top of my car. I didn’t know what to say to them. They weren’t pissed, but I could see the disappointment written across their faces. This was Veronica’s first concert and I messed it up for her and that made me feel real shitty. I went home that day and slept for 18 hours and when I woke up I was in pain. It seems that remembering sun block would have been a good idea, especially since we were due to be out in the sun for over 7 hours. My face was extremely sun burnt as was my shoulders and legs. Matt didn’t get it to bad because he has long hair and it protected his shoulders and some of his back, veronica was extremely burnt on the face. I didn’t want to wake up and face reality after a day like that and even worse was the burning pain on top of the extreme guilt. I was really depressed for the next couple of days. I don’t know how long it would have taken me to get over it, but I had a brilliant idea. I got on the Ozzfest website and checked the tour dates and in September they’re due in North Carolina for their second to last stop on the tour. I immediately got on ticket master and ordered 3 tickets for $40 each. There is no way that I will miss Ozzy again, because I fear that this is his last tour. So I will drive the 300 and something miles. I will not mess this time up and I will see Ozzy.
Ozzy had me worried there for a second. He has missed a few of his shows on the tour due to a cold, but he is back on and rocking again. It's funny though how I missed ozzy, but the night I missed him he announced he wasn't feeling that good and that the set wasn't going to be very long. Now I have a chance to see him at his best. Also velvet revolver starts the tour to replace iron maiden in some of the later dates of the tour. No offense to Iron Maiden, but I'd much rather see velvet revolver. This ozzfest is going to kick ass, as long as I keep matt and myself out of trouble.
Ozzy did kick ass and I almost did not get in. My friend, Matt got arested for pissing in public and got his ticket taken, but I pulled a rabbit out of my ass by finding a scalper and getting Matt another ticket. Concert highlights are as followed:
-Up close to Rob Zombie.
-Painted tity chick rubbing her tits in Veronica's face while she was passed out on the grass. You should have seen her face when she woke up to that. (kodak moment)
-BLS (enough said)
-"In this River" live performance.
-Velvet Revolver doing "dead & bloated"
-To much to possibly list...
All in all a great concert!
