cross the sea by dourdan
cross the sea
I've been looking in the strangest places,
To find the source of my strength,
And even though the outcome never changes,
Still I search endlessly,
But no more wandering around in circles,
It's time that I cross the sea,
Now I'm trading in my cozy corner
For the bigger mystery

new song by ginny owens

:icondragonfire53511: turned me on to the series Toriko, with "they should incorporate Toriko moves in to the next Monster Hunter game."

to which i said "what is Toriko?" 

and then he let me see his dvds (the first 50 episodes)

it's a show about superheros who power up by eating rare foods. and the rarer foods always come from strange, hard to aquire animals.

This pic is not of Toriko. This is my favorite character Sunny. surrounded by my favorite animals of the series.

He is not the main character of the show, but his unique look and obsession with all things "beautiful" remind me of Vega from Street Fighter.

long story short --
once upon a time there was a food master who figured out that if you ate animals that ate a certain jellyfish you could get super powers.
he had 3 diciples;
-a powerfull nomad with a kind heart, who is now an old man and very helpfull though out the series.
-someone who grew up to be the main villian of the series
-and someone who grew up to be the future president

The president choose 4 diciples, 4 little boys who he adopted and raised as brother and friends. In episode 1 they are all in their mid 20's, and working on their own.

-Zebra- no clue who that is other then he is the one who is in prison. On the wiki it seems like he is not a bad person, and when he is back with the team he is a loyal friend.

-Toriko- the main character of the show. he is seen as a loner, but a legend among hunters. He is befriended by a chef who seeks to learn more about where food comes from- and this relationship teaches both of them how to be better people.

-Coco- a poison master and a fortune teller. he is also a loner, but he claims it's because his skin is poisonous (at any given moment). This seems to mostly be in his head, because he seem to have good control over his powers.

and Sunny- he has hair powers; hair that can grow up to 300 meters, lift things, attack/block, and unlike normal hair-has a sense of touch/taste.

I really like Sunny because although he starts out like Vega (arrogant, vain, etc) he becomes more open to being a good friend and teammate.

Although the team went their separate ways, they still loved and respected each other, because in the near future they would need to gain strength and skill as individuals, then be willing to work as a team in order to succeed.

I feel it's a really inspiring series and hopefully i can find a way to see the other episodes.
all I need by dourdan
all I need
"Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one night stand
But I still need love, 'cause I'm just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don't want you to leave - will you hold my hand?

Oh won't you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain't love, it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me"

sam smith stay with me

a pic inspired by the russian mafia of the movie 'Equalizer' (as opposed to the russian mafia of 'taken3' or 'john wick'- 2014 seemed to be the year of the russian mafia) and my own novel that is currently only 13,000 words. and not posted anywhere.

long story short it's about a mafia guard who falls for a college student with a tragic past.
This is how we roll by dourdan
This is how we roll
"We light it up with our hands up
This is how we roll
This is how we do
When the world turns ugly I just turn and look at you"

I have seen the hunger games movies (but not read the books) and i am a huge hunger games wiki fan and Finnick is a source of life inspiration.
which seems to be the point of his character; he won his Hunger games title at the age of 14 and suffered mental and physical abuse ever since.
The main character, Katniss is always waking up screaming, but in the latest movie we see that Finnick has PTSD as well but he has had more years to learn how to hide it.

with the famous quote 
"It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart." that he says to Katniss in a moment of fear and sadness- he shows, he is brave, he is kind, he is comforting, and in a world of evil events and evil people- he seems to represent a genuine friend.

and for the face of Annie I used eva of the youtube channel mylifeaseva. she is sweet, pretty, and athletic.…

i am repeatedly mad that the movies continue to not mention who Annie is.

i guess if he does die in the next one they will finally mention that she is his pregnant wife. 

anyway this is my funky a finnick/district of water tribute with a "background" of waves and randomly colored fish. (seriously, i picked 2 colors at random for each fish, then made an invert color scheme- just to see what would happen.)

the waves were put in to cover and mistakes lol.

Darren Shahlavi tribute by dourdan
Darren Shahlavi tribute
on jan 14th the amazingly talented Darren Shahlavi died at the age of 42.

Darren Shahlavi played Kano in the mortal kombat web series.

this is kind of a redo of the pic i made when i first saw him as Kano.…

persian-english, with Hong Kong martial arts stunt traing- he revolitionized the character.

video game kano- normal assassin/ american mafia character.
movie kano- trevor goddard was a sexy, aussie Kano
Darren Shahlavi kano, was a bond villain Kano who was cleaver, smart and funny.

he deserved so much more.

may he rest in peace.
