Updating for the sake of updating

I should keep the blog a bit more alive, but other than depression, I don't have much to talk about. And I don't want Miss Dynamite to be a daily depression blog. I took Ratzi to the vet to be put to be euthanized last Friday. I feel kinda guilty about it because had I been in better shape I could have taken better care of him. But there wasn't much else to do.

On a more happy subject, I saw what might be the closest thing to what a Miss Dynamite movie could look like. Crank 2. Haven't seen the first one, don't think it matters. It's low budget, it's trash, it's vulgar, the story doesn't make any sense. But it's awesome. The trailer doesn't do this film much justice. It's like Desperado on crystal meth.

Sorry to hear about Ratzi Sirkowsky, what happened? I don't recall you talking about it.

Sorry to hear about your continued depression and having to euthanize a pet, which couldn't have helped with your state of mind. That sucks.

I saw Crank 2, and I agree with what your assessment of it. I can't say as I thought at the time it would be a good approach to making a Miss Dynamite movie, but now that you bring it up: Yeah, I could definitely see that. I will say that Bai Ling kind of reminded me of Blackie, for some reason.

It could have done without Bai Ling though. That's probably her biggest role for the past 15 years.

So we won't be wishing Bai Ling well?

(Sorry, it just had to be said. The first movie's 'Hulk' was directed (literally) by Ang Lee, after all) 9_9

Bai Ling has had a bigger role in the last 15 years if you count direct to video. But you probably shouldn't.

I don't get the Bai Ling/Hulk reference.

I was just having a little 'pun' with you, Sirkowski. ^_^;

(Bai Ling well = Bilingual)
(Ang Lee = angry - a fitting pun considering the film's title character) ^_^

Anyway, I'm sorry to hear that Life is still 'dirty dancing on your digits'. Unfortunately, I don't know what to say other than you're not the only one feeling the pinch. I'm looking for another job, at the moment (no luck yet), and another of my favorite artists, Naga, is climbing out of his own pit of despair. -_-'

Times are tough all over and, even with the upcoming elections, I'm not sure if they will get any better. T~T

What I will say, though, is that, even after everything Life has thrown at you, you've had the strength to carry on. You are a talented artist and a wonderful storyteller and, although you may not realize it, your entries on this blog and in your galleries have been an inspiration (if not a source of humor) for your readers.

All I've done outside of office work is post a few (clever?) ideas here and there (mainly on Usenet). You, on the other hand, have brought your unorthodox ideas to pulp and animated life.

And you have a graphic novel that showcases your inimitable talent close to arrival on the retail shelf? Sirkowski, my friend, you have more than earned a few 'Congratulations'. ^_^

Everyone has dreams that they try to fulfill and not all of these 'seekers' succeed. I won't tell you how to feel, my friend, but I (along with many others) am *proud* of what you've achieved.

And with your talent, your experience, your unbridled imagination, I believe that you'll find yourself capable of far more than you, or anyone else, could ever imagine.

Whatever you decide to do with your life, Sirkowski, I wish you well.

Sounds like there's a lot on your mind. What's bothering you?

Suffering from depression, being forced to stop working, not taking pleasure in anything, not knowing where I'm going with this, etc.

You have a lot of passion for Miss Dynamite and your art. You see its potential but are not sure how to get there. I think you're putting a lot of pressure on yourself to be successful. It's understandable. Try to take it easy. I think you could use a vacation. A change of scenery. I like long walks myself. And get yourself a new rat. Or a guinea pig. Guinea pigs rule the universe.

I've been there. Hopefully, realizing it early will improve the odds.

That's good I hope they help, but you should still make sure to do stuff you like and relax. Don't just depend on the pills or you might end up with another problem.

Sounds the infameous Canadian National Healthcare System™ is void in Québec.

Perhaps rats weren't the right pets for you, Sirkowski. Most of them generally have short lives and are often kept as food for other pets like snakes. (Another high maintenance pet.) I had a friend who had mice and snakes. Visiting his house was not like visiting a pet store or even pig farm.

Depression is kind of hard to describe. What is known, is that it is a mental disorder that has something to do with brain chemistry. For some people, there is nothing a Zoloft can't fix. For others, hobbies or work. Physical Exercise can help. Basically, the chemicals in the body need to move around.

Think of your brain being like a soda. When you open the soda it makes that "psht!" sound. A depressed brain is like a flat soda. What you need to do is shake the bottle a little bit and make the soda fizz a little bit.

Do something to get the adrenaline going.
