The Oath to Order the Moon

I like to look at the moon.

When I am waiting for the bus, or walking at night, I just like to spend a few minutes gazing up at it.

When I first played though the Zelda game Majora’s Mask, I heard the musical piece Oath to Order for the first time, and to this day it is still one that stands out to me as being beautifully produced.

Now there is a particular remix of Oath to Order that I think is brilliant to listen to, a dubstep version by a Youtuber under the name Mike Vader. And this is the version I enjoy listening to when I gaze at the Moon.

There is something about the calming ambiance of that particular piece of music, combined with the glittering beauty of the Earth’s Satellite that I just find so calming and relaxing.

Something I find fascinating about the Moon is just how bright the Moon appears to us, almost a bright white, despite its actual colouring being an almost asphalt grey. Of course there are scientific reasons for this and it can all be explained one way or another using various hypothesises and scientific knowledge.

And I acknowledge this.

I actually really enjoy looking up and researching things I don’t know, simply to find them out.

In fact, I found out its very easy to fool people into thinking you are smarter than you are just by knowing a few facts on various different subjects, not only does it allow you to always have at least one thing to say no matter what the conversation, but you may wind up learning something that the others don’t know, and that can be very impressive.

Needless to say, I try to take full advantage of this.

I guess the point of this is that I, for some reason, suddenly started to see an undying beauty in an object that we all see most nights. (and indeed, often during the day too.)

Someday I would like to write something revolving around the Moon. By which of course I mean write something set either on or near the Moon, not write something and then launch the paper into orbit.

Though I admit the latter would probably get me in at least one newspaper.

Until next time.

Rambling Racist Erotic Doodles

This post will contain none of the things listed above.

I only call it that because a friend of mine jokingly said he would not look at this site if it contained any of those. And as of yet, it doesn’t.

I acknowledge quite openly that I ramble, sometimes I have nothing to say at all, yet at others I can talk for hours, sometimes without actually saying anything.

Part of what makes this so great is I can keep on typing, not having to worry about word counts, not having to worry about deadlines, I work at my own speed, setting my own pace, and thinking about what I want to. And what makes it even better is that even if someone does winding up reading this, I have already spoken.

On this page, my word is law.

I feel like I want to clear the air slightly, while I know full well that I am by no means racist, and have no intention of ever being so, the anonymity can sometimes work against me, as the people out there don’t know me, so for the record, I am not.

And while I do like to doodle, I always carry my notebook around with me, after all, you never know when inspirartion will strike, none of the doodles I have done have ever been Erotic (and nor for that matter, are any of the pictures I drew with intent)

Most of my doodles are story related, I get an idea for something I am working on, and if I think it will help to do a quick diagram to help me remember, I will do so. I have maps of various lands I designed, drawings of buildings, aircraft and even a couple of dragons jotted about. Although these days my focus is more on the tails.

One page in one of my (many) notebooks is just coated in pictures of human faces, as at the time I was experimenting with different hairstyles for my characters and wanted to try to help visualise them. It seemed no matter how hard I tried to draw a female face, it just ended up looking like an effeminate man, though still distinctly male. So when I took advice on how to make the face more female, they just ended up looking like weird transvestites.

In the end I gave up.

Bleach inspired swords with wings, designs for airship/helicopter blends, drawings of rooms, anagrams, my notebooks are just overfilled with the most confusing drivel. I attempted at one point to convert all my notes to newer and less tattered notebooks in a more organised manner, that fell though pretty quickly when I realised copying over sketches wasn’t going to work.

Anyway the picture below is the Bleach inspired doodle I found in one of my older notepads. I cant remember what I named my zanpakuto, but it will probably come to me eventually.

I lied in the first line.

Coin

I have a particular coin that I like to keep close by when I write.

I’ve had it for quite some time now, though I don’t fully recall how I wound up with it. And based upon a little searching I have done I get the feeling it is a Ukrainian Currency, which I think is pretty interesting.

On once side it has a picture of an aircraft, or, more specifically, an Antonov, AN-140

I’m not fully sure what it is about it, but I’ve liked the study of aircraft for as long as I can remember, so having this coin by my side whenever I write just makes me feel more creative, and more at home while I do so.

Anyway this I is just a short post until I can think of something more long winded and more of a series.

What I would like to do is talk about something meaningful, but until an idea strikes I guess I’ll just keep posting random gibberish

Words

Sometimes I wish I had something interesting to say.

Seeing how I have never blogged before, I have no idea what things I am supposed to put up here, am I supposed to say something that will intrigue? That will fascinate? ¬†Because if that is the case, then I’m in a really bad situation, because truth be told. I’m not all that interesting.

Something I have always known though, is that inspiration can strike in the strangest of places. For me, i happened the other day when I watched both ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ and ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ for the first time.

I was very late into the game of actually watching these, but nonetheless I was blown away by how astoundingly brilliant they were. I don’t even care that people would think me too old for films such as these, I practically fell in love with the both of them.

For me, finding inspiration is important, I like to write and create, (Though I am more of a storyteller than a blogger, as anyone who reads this will probably figure out) My main problem is I find it very difficult to stick with one particular idea, I find it incredibly easy to get sidetracked on an entirely new project, and by the time I manage to make it back to an older one, my style has changed so much, and I have come up with so many new ideas for the older projects that I have to start almost from scratch.

When I was younger I did attempt writing a story about Dragons and the like. It didn’t get very far, but I still have a lot of the notes and designs I created stored away in a file somewhere, just waiting to be opened and reused.

Something I like to do when I am writing is listen to music, the issue falls into that if I listen to music with lyrics, I wind up attempting to sing along, regardless of what it is. Instead I listen to soundtracks and orchestral pieces. The Gravity OST is a personal Favorited to listen to, but I am definity adding the HTTYD 1 and 2 soundtracks to it, as they are amazing.

I’ve gone off on many tangents in this and not really said anything. So I’ll try again when I have an actual topic or something proper to say.
