Time for an obligatory "I'm not dead, I'm still here" post. I'm not active on DA because work wears me out. But I do check here every day, so if you wanna talk or have a question for me, feel free to drop a comment or send a note. My eyes and ears are open.
Now, for what's new in South Park...
The new season starts this upcoming Wednesday. As I'm typing this, I don't know what the episode is gonna be and we won't know until late tonight.
I'm sure you've all heard there's a new game coming called "The Fractured But Whole" (the fractured butthole!). We don't know when it's coming out. I just hope it doesn't get delayed as many times as The Stick of Truth was.
Now, for my favorite bit of news, there are new toys coming! Kidrobot is making some more figures. There'll be a 6-inch tall AWESOM-O figure:
It looks like you can take his helmet off to reveal the starving Cartman inside! I've seen him go up for pre-order on Amiami and Entertainment Earth, and he's going to be expensive. X( Like, $50-$60-ish.
Kidrobot is also making a new blindbox SP series called "The Many Faces of Cartman." These are figures of Cartman in a bunch of his different outfits over the years:
I like the pirate one the best!
Time to talk about real life:
I started my first job back at the end of January. I work as a kennel attendant at a nearby vet. It means I get to take care of the pets that stay with us (feeding, walking, cleaning up after), and do lots and lots of cleaning. It is very physical and takes a toll on my body. I hurt my back in a sledding accident when I was 11 and have dealt with chronic pain ever since. Work has led to an increase in my back pain. When I get off work, I'm so tired that all I wanna do is sleep. So, that's why you haven't seen much of me. :<
I've been passing the time by watching TV/movies, playing my 3DS, reading comics, taking care of my sugar gliders, and coming online to window shop and look at fan blogs. I haven't done any artwork at all, and I haven't been doing as much charity/humanitarian aid as I like to do. =/ Been spending a lot more time with my heating pad and needing my prescription pain pills more than just once a month.
Here are the comics I've been reading:

Waiting on the fall season to start so the Fox toons and assorted primetime dramas and sitcoms come back. I'm especially waiting for Empire (Fox), Better Call Saul (AMC), and The Americans (FX) to come back!
