I enjoy coral, the sky, mythology, and peace treaties.

Who are your favorite performers?

Rad! I'll be busy over the weekend, so make sure to give a shutout about any rules to me.

Ditto about partners.

"But if it wasn't so intense, then it wouldn't feel satisfying." All of my favorite pieces are like that- just short of having pieces of the artists themselves. Typical.

Put up a video of your process sometime. I would love to see how you manage to get your watercolour like that. I'm guessing a lot of tape. I could be wrong.

I have nothing wrong with imageboards. From time to time, I browse 4chan and 2chan just because the cultures fascinate me. What bothers me about images on reddit is that they prefer to make it honest instead of having a story to it. Then when you check the comments, the wide range of them all seem to lack the weight of wit. And the jokes are predictable. Maybe this is what it feels to be growing up.

Yes! God, that still influences me to this day.

btw, I just watched both. Excellent. I have to leave now, so we shall talk about that later. It's nice to know that we share a common interest in UFOs and dark humour.

Good for you! It still feels weird to me, for the most part.

I love your color choices and your use of negative spaces.

When are you publishing it?

This song never grabbed me with its lyrics or melody as much as Wrecking Ball.

I'll take you up on it.

I'm in.

It's just so damn catchy.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

See, that seems to be everyone's opinion on them. I have yet to meet anyone who prefers the prequels that chronologically came after the originals. Yet how can you judge the quality of a censored book? It goes against all reason.

Do you enjoy him before or after his wife died? The way he is afterwards is pretty dark, but I love how straight-edged his comedy becomes. If anything, I imagine that's probably how Mark Twain was on stage. I would give my unborn child to time travel to one of his talks.

    I'd love to see the end result : )

We can talk about the films when I get my comic back!

I have seen Space Balls and enjoyed it immensely. Family Guy isn't my cup of tea though...

I'm more dazed from all of this than anything. It reminded me to see what reddit has become... it was a good lesson.

You are actually encouraged to comment on older posts! You don't realize how much reddit influences you until you are on such a liberating website. It's pretty difficult to seek out some of the older ones to comment on, but insomniasexx came up with a great way to get used to it (the Hubski newsletter). Don't be afraid of creating new tags if you can't find what you are looking for either. People like you here and you won't know if they don't. Ignoring the user is completely up to you.

I earned my first full hubski wheel yesterday and got shocked when it disappeared! I didn't realize how much I was glad to see the damn thing, so I'm back to earning another one for the sole satisfaction of seeing it up there again.

Girls type "boyfriend" and "husband" and boys type "my girlfriend" and "my husband".

Huh.

If not this round, I'd love to be in the next.

You've got my experience here pegged. It's wonderful to slow down, taking the time to share what you enjoy with others, and feel relatively free in what you peruse.

A nice feature I found on accident: if someone already submitted a link before you, hubski warns you before you post it. Whoever programmed that in is awesome in my book.

Welcome to Hubski! I hope you enjoy your stay. :)
