Headed down to Auburn with Mom around 1:00 today. Off the Record has relocated to a lot just a few stores down from where it originally was. It's smaller, but oddly, it has more CDs now.

I picked up Peter Murphy's Deep (that man's voice is DIVINE), The Knife's Silent Shout (AMAZING album), and the Sneaker Pimps' Becoming X (also very good). I'm going to rip them onto my laptop so I don't have to worry about transporting CDs up to Oregon.

I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER. I can't believe half of my break is already over.... Argh. But! - I feel better, and that's what matters. Spending the first week and half (almost) just drove me nuts.

SO! Last night, I introduced my good friend Dez (doom-weasel of dA) to VNV Nation. The first song I sent her was "Epicentre", one of my top favorite songs of theirs, and a top favorite song, period. I was playing it off of my Brainsick playlist... which is playing again right now. (We'd been discussing Brainsick a bit prior to my mention of VNV Nation.)

Her reaction (after "MOOOOOOOORE"):

If we by some miracle both become lesbians someday Jill, we are getting married, and we are playing this song at our wedding. >=[

XD!!! I was laughing HYSTERICALLY after I read that.

Dez considers herself asexual as I do, but hey, who says that means we don't have a (strange) sense of humor? I love Dez. <3 That almost tops our "I CAN HAS CHEESEBURGER?!" conversation from a couple months back. *grin*

We both love Massive Attack. She wrote that, when she learns how to use Flash, she wants to make an opener to Brainsick with "Angel" playing in the background. HARDCORE AWESOME.

I'm talking with Alex right now. <3 Much less than three! We're geeking out over computers and such.

I've been frequenting lately. Tonight, I learned that Golfrapp's "Strict Machine" was apparently inspired by lab rats... and, as i reread the lyrics, I thought, My God, no wonder this song is on my Brainsick playlist!

Mom, Dad, Cammy and I are going to Bodies Revealed in Sacramento tomorrow. Exhibits of real human bodies and such. It'll be awesome for photo references... I hope photos are allowed!

Veeeery early this morning, after Dez went to bed, I sketched a scene with Finch and Anne in my Brainsick sketchbook. It illustrates Anne's mind games, and Finch's intense fear of physical contact with his superior.... "You might like it" is Anne's statement, soothingly purred - as Finch shudders in horror. Her advances are not strictly sexual, but they terrify Finch nonetheless. She prefers psychological abuse over physical abuse.

Getting emotion down with my characters is crucial to Brainsick's further development. Finch's relationship with Anne is extremely uncomfortable.

ANYWAY. Back to my sketchbook!
