Greetings!  I'm Elie but you can usually find me lurking around the internet under the alias of Farlist or PiccadillyL.  I'm a young whippersnapper, born and raised in Chicago (It's a cool city, you should visit.)  I am an admitted nerd of a girl and a self-hating hipster.  I am a HUGE video game fan and flit around various fandoms that almost all contain sexy guys in them.  I am a a big Disney dork and have a major soft spot for animation and cartoons.  I also have a hard-on for history and pretty clothes.

I am also an aspiring student artist who hopes to one day get into the challenging and thrilling world of concept art, as soon as I figure out Photoshop that is.  Anyways, this is my humble little place for fandom spazzing, rants, life, and art.  Basically me being my big old serpy self.

Unlike this journal's previous incarnation, it is entirely public!  EXCITING!  While it is not necessary for you to friend me, I won't mind AT ALL.  You don't even have to ask though, it is always nice.  Hell, lurk if you want to.  Comment out of nowhere.  The more the merrier.  If you do friend me, there is a damn good chance I will do it back.  A few more personal entries may be friend-lock so if you want in, you know what to do.

Enjoy yourself and I warn you: I abuse ellipses...

Sorry WoW but I have a new game to be a whore for...

Oh sweet Jesus I want this bad.  It looks gorgeous and no monthly fee.

The question remains though, can my computer actually run it?

I need to find a new layout.  This one likes to cut off posts but it also covers those nasty ads.  DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE LJ. 

My hair is so ugly right now.  Why did I have to dye it blue?  WHY?  I'm usually the logical one with these decisions but the art school vibe is rubbing off on me.

WHY HAVE I NOT WATCHED THIS?!

This has to be a quick post since I am getting carpal tunnel in my right hand and it really hurts to type and draw. 
Life has been good and somuch better than expected.  I've made friends which I honestly didn't think would happen at all here.  I'm not miserable for once and instead, I am just so...happy.  I still miss home and all my pals back in Chicago but I am so greatful that I have manged to adjust and enjoy myself for the first time in a long time.  Let's hope it stays like that for the next four weeks *knocks on wood*.

I will try to post some art tomorrow but sadly I do not have direct access to a scanner.  I can't wait to sleep in since a combo of homework and my medication has completely fucked up my sleeping schedule and I have been tired all day.  Plus, I really need my hand to feel better.  ONE CANNOT DRAW WITH A CLAW-HAND.  It is really painful right now, why am I typing?

Homework and potluck tommorrow, shopping Sunday, and my friend Maria has convined me to pull a Nia and dye my hair blue.

Boring news but good news.  And that is sometimes the best sort of news, when life just feels to actually be going in the right direction for once.  It makes me smile.  So does BRODYQUEST.

WHAT A TWEEST YOUR MOVIE SUCKED
Persona 4

I just have to say it but....

FUCK YOU TO HELL M. NIGHT SHYMALIDONTGIVEAFUCK.  THANKS.  THANKS FOR RUINING ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SERIES AND I HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN YOUR PIECE OF SHIT MOVIE.

I LOVED AtLA.  It was captivating, well written, funny, beautifully animated, had an amazing universe, and fantastic character development.  I just adore it and screw you for raping this incredible example of a cartoon.  GOD.  I am planning to see it and think I just want to HBIC Azula on screen.  That and my man Patel who shoudl have been Sokka not Zuko damnit.  GOD.

On a lighter note, I bought cowboy boots, the Toy Story 3 art book which is AMAZING OMG, and a fricken bowtie. 


Have some music... 



Boring Updates

It's nice and quiet here in the the dorms.  I just finally started my illustration major today and we got out about an hour and a half earlier.  FUCK YEAH ALONE TIME.  It was actually really enjoyable and rather nerdy.  Nothing is quite like talking about how the geometric shapes in the character designs of Batman, the Joker, and Kingpin from Daredevil reveal their inner personality.  I have to read Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud which I'm looking forward to and I also have to read Molly Bang's Picture This and create concept art for a fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm.  It turns out that I have really got it easy when it comes to the homework load.  Our floor is full of fashion majors and they are swamping to the knees with projects.

Life has been good if not a tad exhuasting.  Classes are six hours long but go by rather rapidly and there are fellow dorks in my class so all is good.  I also have to draw two contour line drawings using positive and negative space and find supplies for my design class.  I also have to research some blogs.  Everything just seems...nice.  I am being sent an Ethernet chord in a few days which will help with my internet connection.

I get out early tomorrow so I'm going to try to post some art.  For now, I'm watching a painful episode of Full House.  I WANT TO SHOOT MYSELF.

Yes!  I'm back FINALLY.  I did arrive in Providence on Thursday but I didn't get a chance to use my computer until yesterday.  So, my college tour.  My ~wonderous~ tour through a variety of New England schools.  Here is a quick rundown of my views of the places I toured.  I doubt any of you care but hell, I want to tell so I will. 
New England, it's full of clams...and lobsters...and chowderCollapse )

I just came back from seeing Toy Story 3 and might do a mini review tomorrow.  It is 10:30 here and I am not exactly in what one may call a "typing" mood. 

I probably will be a bit quiet until next Thursday and I have good reason.  COLLEGE ROAD TRIP.  Yes, as my family makes way for Providence which will become my cozy home for six weeks, we are stopping at some colleges along the way.  Let's see, there Skidmore, Bard, Carnegie Mellon, and Cornell.  Doesn't help that I am so absolutely sick of these but I need to do some interviews.  Yay.

Wish me luck!  We leave on Sunday.
