Literature
everydruggy's a .victim.
sometimes i feel i should rant and rave
misbehave and toke and choke my own life with smoke
i look at all my friends that broke themselves on addiction
because they think life is fiction
there is no honorable mention in the darwin awards
and all these people end up walkin through rehab doors
and some a' still robbin' stores for cash
hopin' that 5 minute high will last a lifetime
not thinkin of the fines it takes not in cash
but on your body and self
they disprespect themself
and make fools of themselves because they want to delve
into adventurous things
let me explain what addiction brings
all the bad links in your life get stronger
and that want for a high is a damn warmonger
itll take you over and you arent you any longer
you think PCP makes you stronger
makes you superman
a bullet wound lasts longer than crack cocaine can
and you think your the man
cause you can be anything you want
you go and flaunt your crazy ass where everyone can see
thinkin your the only thing anyone'd want to

I finally got DSL at home!!! So now maybe I can get back to doing a little socializing around these parts. (^o^)

For those who haven't been keeping up with my doings, outside of dA, it might interest you to know that I've been furiously writing Western Noir novels. I've published the first drafts of said novels on my website at KaiStarr.com, and now also have two of the "Desperado" series novels for sale in print edition! Check those out on the bookstore page.

I hope to get back to making more art, soon, and to start myself off, I've just added a new sketch of the star of my "Desperado" series, Joshua Love, in which he shows off his fast-draw shooting technique. Hope you all like it!

Heya! I'm kinda sorta still around. Right now, though, I am stuck with a 26k internet connection, so it's really hard for me to make it to all the sites I used to frequent! I'm hoping to get broadband, sometime in the next few months. Then I can be Mr. Social, again. :P I do miss looking at everyone's art and talking to folks!

Hiya! Life is kinda...meh. Music is on hold, until I can get a place set up for recording again. Got to get that done, soon, though! I want to do another album for RPM Challenge, this year! How are thing with you?

Aww, sorry to hear life is being meh :( :hug:. Are you not doing music-for-fun while you wait for a chance to record? What's RPM Challenge?

My life is hectic. I'm working too hard, studying to hard, sleeping too little, and missing my ex-boyfriend. But apart from that, it's good :) I'm playing much music, drawing too little, and I got to see Natalie Klien play 'cello on Wednesday, which was awesome!

Heh Oh well. I go through lots of "meh" periods, in my life. Most of it has been "meh," in fact! I'm not in a place where I can easily get to my instruments, either, so all I've been able to do is poot around in GarageBand and play with loops. That's not really making music, imo.

RPM Challenge is like NaNoWriMo for musicians. You write, perform and record a full album of music (10 songs or 35 minutes of music) during the month of February. I've won it, the last two years in a row. I'm trying again this year, but things will have to change FAST for me to get my mini studio set up, again! It's at [link] Just in case you want to sign up for it and play along, put in Kaichi as how you heard about it, so I get recruitment credit. :P

I guess a hectic life is, in some ways, better than a boring one! Sounds like you're staying very busy, at least. I'm sorry you're missing the ex; that's never a good feeling. :( *great big ol' hugs*

I do have a new book out, though! [link] I should blog about it, but I'm having trouble accessing the dA site, right now. I'm surprised I got this far, this time!
