Are you shoe about that

Happy 100 Kanga posts!

It's somewhere around there, I can't really tell seeing how I have a few drafts that I never published (what ever happened at the end of senior year? DID RETREAT HAPPEN?! KANGA NO SAY! KEVIN NO SE!!!). But this would be post 110, so I probably hit 100 some time ago.

To celebrate my sexiness (and 100 posts), I have a, uh... picture!

I permanent-marker'd those today (thanks for the sharpies, Kristina!). The face part is pretty much done, just gotta do the sides and the back and I'll be done with my ENTIRE SHOES! YAY! Wait "entire shoes" sounds wrong. Does "entire" only work with singular nouns? Hey "Entire" is a cool word. Sounds like the name of a book about magical cars.

Ehm, can you tell what they're doing on my shoes? (HAHA that question reminds me of my 1st grade journals where I'd draw a picture and ask some random question about it to take up space.)

Today I also realized how much I improvised in my art pieces. Example, I wasn't even planning to add those yellow and orange streaks on my shoes. It just happened. And it looks cool. But that's how most of my art projects go, but I should stop doing that because it usually doesn't end well...


And sorry about using the word "sexiness". I'll try my best to use it sparingly.

Word of the Day: Vacaton

The day returning from vacation is weird - at least for me anyway. It's weird knowing that just a few hours ago I was some place far away doing some completely vacationy thing... and then now I'm back at home adjusting to how I was living before. There could be some scientific name for that... and if not, I'll make up one! Vacaton. There ya go.

vacaton (va-kuh-tone) - the feeling one gets of reverting back to a routine after following an alternative one for a long period of time (usually the secondary routine lasting at least a day)

Example: I got vacaton today after returning from Comic-Con after 4 days of fun.





For now I'll just put up some pictures.

Oh yeah, and it was incredibly fun.

Caterpillar Fat

I just got a Flickr account.

Follow The Lines

I've always dreamed of a place like that, I'm not kidding. I shall go there one day.

Switching gears, sometimes I think it's bad if I don't post in my blog. (I have great transitions!)

Does it mean I don't find life as interesting? Is what I'm doing not worth type a couple paragraphs about it?


But I think if I have any random little events to talk about, I'll just twitter it. HEHE!!! It's much more convenient. I'll type here in my Kanga if...

A) I have a story to tell.
B) I have a picture to show.
C) It's something interesting that deserves more than 140 characters.

Yeah, random stuff I do doesn't need to be blogged... I can just twitter it. Sweet. Also, this is not a place for teen angst, so you shall receive none of that. NONE DAT! That is the Kanga Guarantee! (Disclaimer: I might talk about angsty stuff sometimes... but not a LOT... I mean... I don't know, sometimes people just don't understand me... AGH I just hate life sometimes man!)

Here's a video so I don't get bored with this post.

Paul. Dances.

We were playing WarioWare Smooth Moves at this past Christmas Party. Good times, Pauly!



It is fine.

Got a Macbook, cleaned up my room, animating a lot, swam today, having difficulty following my "skehjool"...


Well a short one. Today I went to an open mic thing at "It's a Grind!" (note to company, it's better with that exclamation mark) to watch Richard Tran perform. He so good! Link to Youtube! Yar yar! GJEEAARRB!

But the best part was the comedian guy. The unfunniest "comedian" I've ever seen, which made it really hilarious. You know it's bad when every joke is followed with a "so ANYWAY... (pause)... (silence)..." At least he tried though, right?

In other disconnected news, tomorrow I'm heading off to Comic-Con! YAAYY!! I'M EXCCCIIIIIITED! I'm more excited than a caterpillar going into its chrysalis, and lemme tell ya, if I were a little fat bug eating my weight in leaves, I'd be incredibly anxious to sleep my fat ass off. Just sayin. so ANYWAY... I'll be coming back Sunday afternoon with books, posters, and swags galore. Tell me if you want anything! Shirt? Signing? Book? I can get it for ya! I can check my email there too! Thas what I get with iPod Touch + Free Wifi! YAY!

See? Fat caterpillar excitement is growing.

A month or so ago she made this really weird post where she talked about loving me.. I don't know what she was thinking cause I am just way too gross.

But I guess I'll return the favor! VERONICA YOU'RE THE BEST!

Aw I love this post so darned much. I could just hug myself and pat myself the back.. AT THE SAME TIME! Ooooh..

Anyway, Kevin out! Hah, I'm so clever.

Snap, man.

That's it for today. This is a silly post.

It'll be made Adobe Flash and be a couple minutes long. I don't put nearly as much art stuff here as I should...

A couple of stuff to look back on today.


My second grade journal I found while cleaning my room.

Every page was pretty much like this, a bunch of misspelled Pokemon all attacking each other. I guess that robot was a nice change of pace from Pokemon like "Catpie". Also, I think I had to reach the bottom of the page, which would explain those questions I asked myself at the end.


Some good senior year fun. It's the chipple video.

Old Kevin Life vs. New Kevin Life. I'm not sure which one I consider more normal.

Happy Fourth of July!

Have you ever had those moments where you're sitting in a car on the freeway, and you see all the other cars on the road and just think to yourself "Hm. I know where I'M going... but I wonder where everyone ELSE is driving to..."? Have you ever thought about the fact that there are more than 6 billion people on Earth, and more than 6 billion people all have different destinations? Are you ever curious as to where they're going or what they're doing?

BOOM Twitter.

I have a confession of sorts to make! I've been scared. I've been scared to post on my blog. Every time I wanted to, I wanted to make it something GOOD, something SPECIAL... cuz I always like making my Kanga posts awesome. To do something deep and philosophical, I'd have to be in a deep and philosophical mood, but then when I am, I'm not in the mood to post, and then and then, if I'm not in a deep and philo mood, then I COULD feel like writing something, but then I didn't feel like it was worth posting.

But yknow what? Screw that! Screw writing something deep! Imma do whatever I like, yeahhhh. Screw that like one of the following: A) a womanizer! B) a light bulb! C) a kid who didn't study for a math test! Or maybe screw it like a womanizer unprepared for a math test screwing in a lightbulb!! TRIPLE SCREWED!!! HUHAH!! Okay I forget what I'm talkin about.


I was cleaning out my Legos and figured... "Hey. Maybe I should keep some around, not just put ALL of them away in storage." So since I had those nice Star Wars display stands, I chose three Lego people! SWEET! Unfortunately, I could not find Boba Fett, Luke, OR Han Solo, so I replaced them with these guys.

My question is... Who would win?

---Spiderman with a lance?
---Harry Potter with a revolver?
---A McDonalds employee with a lighsaber?


Personally, I think the McDonalds employee would win. You can't beat a lightsaber. Here's how I see it going down: They're in an arena with a few places for cover. Spiderman is swinging everywhere while Potter is running around to find employee. Employee is traveling from cover to cover so Harry won't get a good shot. Employee runs by. BANG goes Harry. BANG! He runs by again. BANG! BANG! Now Spiderman is observing from above and tries to web Potter's gun. He gets his hand! But before Spidey can yank it out, Potter aims it at Spidey and the webslinger retreats behind a pillar. BANG! Potter misses.

Suddenly, employee emerges from behind a metal crate and runs toward Potter. BANG! BANG! One bullet hits employee in the shoulder! He stumbles to the ground. Potter smiles. He walks up to the injured man, the grimmace growing wider and wider on his face. Spidey observes from a distance in fear. "Well," the wizard cacks, "looks like this is the end!" Potter aims the gun at employee's head. -click- What? -click click!- Potter ran out of bullets! He frowns. "The end... for YOU!" SZHWAHP! Employee whips his lightsaber upward between Potter's legs, slicing him cleanly in half. Employee smiles. "Tea and crumpets THAT magic, mother f***ker." The wizard's body falls both to the left and right (haha) while employee is left on the floor.

Spiderman sees his chance. Employee is still injured from the bullet in his shoulder, so Spidey blasts gallons of web at employee's body. TZS TSZ TSSZZZZ TTSSSSSZZZZ!! Employee deflects some webbing with the saber, but some wrap around his shoulder. "You fool!" he shouts from the ground, "you just gave me a web-bandage!!" All part of his plan. "Dang it!" Spiderman curses.

Employee gets up and is ready for the final round. Spiderman throws his lance at employee's abdomen, yelling in strength. "AHHH!" Employee is clipped on the side, but it's nothing serious. He runs towards Spiderman. SZHOO! SZHOOO!! SZHWAAHHH!!! Spiderman dodges every swipe employee deals. WHACK! Spiderman nails employee in his non-webbed shoulder with a solid punch. "STOP GETTING MY SHOULDERS!!" employee yelps in pain with a now broken shoulder.

He's back on the ground while Spiderman jumps up for the final blow. While suspended in the air, Spidey forms web boxing gloves so his final punch will be both devastating and really icky. "AHHHH" he yells some more in strength. Spiderman comes raining down like some sort of water in a waterspout. Really fast water. Employee panics and holds up his lightsaber.


They're frozen on top of each other. Both of them are like "uuhh... uhhhhh..." so it's like you don't know who won yet cuz they both have a shocked look on their faces. Then Spiderman becomes limp. Employee had pointed his saber straight up into the body of Spidey. "uuhh... Spidey sense THAT... mother f***ker..." Employee pushes the dead superhero to the side and stands up.

"I WON!!!" Employee screams! Then he goes home.

The end.


So who do YOU think would win?

(Oh god this entry is horrible.)
