Rescued From The Abyss (1 in a semi-continuing series): Art Supplies and CDs!
These were stashed in a few boxes up on a shelf in a closet in the house, and some were in a box by my bed. I've got here, resting on a Size XL FanimeCon 2008 T-shirt (I'll fit into it by the end of this year, or beginning it next!)....
* ADV's domestic relaease of the Spriggan movie soundtrack. (Yu Ominiae -- Because we can't all be like Arnold Schwarzenegger....)
* Konami's import release of Dance Dance Revolution 2nd Mix soundtrack
Favorite tracks off of that disc set:
** Have You Never Been Mellow [The Olivia Project]
** Kung Fu Fighting [Bus Stop featuring Carl Douglas]
** That's The Way I Like It [KC and the Sunshine Band]
** Butterfly [SMILE.dk]
** My Fire [X-Treme] (Seems to be an interesting remix of Dan Hartman's "Relight My Fire")
** Little Bitch [The Specials] (I have the full length track in my music collection, and, ironically, I've performed it at karaoke)
** Boom Boom Dollar (Red Monster Mix) [King Kong & D. Jungle Girls]
** Smoke [Mr. Ed Jumps The Gun]
** Boys [SMILE.dk] (Don't give me grief about liking this song - Don't judge me. ^_^;)
** Stomp To My Beat [JS-16] (Got the full track of this as well. ^_^;)
** Dub-I-Dub [Me & My] (Believe it or not, I sang this song at karaoke.... Yeah, I should be ashamed, but I can hit that vocal range.)
(For the record, I'm a disaster on two feet when it comes to DDR - I can only do a handful of songs from 2nd mix, and even then on 2-feet difficulty. I'm still a bit too heavy for DDRing... I need to get a decent metal pad like my friend Dominic/DJ Sandman, and every release of DDR for the PlayStation 2)
JVC's domestic release of the You're Under Arrest (Taiho Shichau Zo!) OAV soundtrack.
And my initial collection of art supplies, including an assortment of Copic markers, a few other random markers, metallic pencils, a Tachikawa brush pen with a couple refills, and one Tone Hera (spatula for transferring comic tones to comic paper), a pen holder and assorted nibs (including maru nibs, spoon pen nibs and G pen nibs), a few erasers, including a kneadable eraser and a refill for a Pentel Clic eraser, and a full set of Copic MultiLiner markers. ^_^;
I also found a mostly blank sketchbook, but I'm looking for the one that's got my writings and the semi-decent sketches in it.
I'm getting closer to returning to my roots, I guess. ^_^;
I've freed up three cardboard storage boxes!
I also know where most of my "How To Draw Manga" books are, as well as my Hogarth's "Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery" book. Still need to find Hogarth's "Dynamic Anatomy" and Jack Hamm's "Drawing The Head and Figure" reference books.
(Update 2009.11.1: Found my Jack Hamm and Hogarth books. Life is fine. ^_^; )
I also found 6 volumes of Kimagure Orange Road manga, and... J. O'Barr's 'The Crow" collected volumes (4th printing, but hey... I found it!!)
More buried treasure excavations Wednesday night and most of Thursday.
Off I go, however, to brush, floss, and sleep. (And possibly shave with Occam's Razor , saw the legs off the Periodic Table, and other quixotic endeavors...)
