    The world's first POV Greek Tragedy.
    Happenings

    I'm going to be in Japan for most of this week. I'm leaving on Tuesday, arriving there on Wednesday, and flying back home on Saturday. Assuming everything works out as planned, that is. If all goes well, I should still be putting out a Gazette next week.

    On another note I should probably be doing something to celebrate the Gazette reaching 75 issues but honestly I didn't even expect to still be alive at this point so let's just call me not killing myself the 75 issue celebration

    Here's hoping I make it to 100

    A detailed documentation of the path leading to my eventual suicide.
    Happenings

    Got me a new med dosage but even if it works it'll take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to actually kick in so haha hey get ready for more depression for a while.

    Since I stepped back from the ReVise (specifically Star Spirit), I realized the problem I was having with it: I wasn't thinking about myself. I was just writing a story based on technical details that would make a good, coherent read based on the original storyline, and while that's all well and good, it doesn't work out that well for passion projects the way I was going about it. I finally realized writing something that makes you miserable for no actual compensation is stupid and dumb, and from now henceforth, will write projects that actually make me happy.

    One of the main things dragging down Star Spirit for me was that it just wasn't my kind of story. It was turning out pretty goddamn dark and intense, and if you've talked at length with me about my opinions on stories, you know I don't actually have much patience for those kinds of narratives. I've got plans for the basic ideas going into Star Spirit, big plans, but this time, I'm doing it right.

    The first Star Spirit was pure bullshitting with no plan behind it. The ReVise Star Spirit was pure planning with no room for me to write something fun and enjoyable for myself. This time, none of that bullshit. I'm gonna be writing a good narrative, but I'm gonna be writing it my way, grittiness be damned. Not like I really have any readers left to pander to, so I might as well go all-in on doing everything for me, myself, and my incomparable skill as the Tensai Autist.

    Oy vey what the hell is wrong with people and cartoons, mang? Like I get it, the cartoon industry really sucks major ass right now, but jesus christ there are people that unironically get upset in real life because of something a cartoon does. For example, the Ben 10 reboot. Everywhere I go it's just people whining and whining about what is objectively just an okay children's cartoon for a younger demographic. "BUT IT'S RUINING MY CHILDHOOD!" get over yourself mate Ben 10 shat itself long before the reboot came around "BUT THERE'S NO POINT TO IT!" it's making Cartoon Network hella dough that's the point to it right there. It's a cartoon. For small children. It's stupid, but it isn't anywhere near important. Grow up.

    Goodbye to a World (Original Texture)
    By ChromastoneandTabby


    This was the original detailing I had for Goodbye to a World. I decided the space texture I drew looked too realistic compared to the rest of the design so I made the colors for the "official" image a bit more cartoonish.

    Happenings

    I'm feeling a bit better this week, albeit mostly by virtue of distracting myself from the metaphorical (and literal) crushing pressure in the back of my skull. Trying to ignore my problems since I have no realistic method of dealing with them kinda reminds me of the old CaT. You know, before I gave up on ignoring them and was pretty much entirely consumed by them.

    One of my childhood pets died a few days ago. Not the first pet I've had die, but it's still not easy by any means.

    On a less depressing note, Build never fails to make me feel better every week by being a ridiculously well-written show with really fantastic cinematography. If you only watch one Kamen Rider series in your lifetime, it should probably be Build (assuming it doesn't crash and burn at the end like Ex-Aid did but let's try not to think about that).

    You may have read about this on Discord already, but I'm cancelling the ReVise/Renovation entirely. See, I was at my weekly therapy appointment on Thursday and my therapist and I had a conversation that basically went like this:

    • Me: "Alright so I've got this writing project I've been dealing with for the past few years that I currently hate and keeps me from working on other shit I might want to do but I already put too much work into it to let it go what do I do"
    • Therapist: "Dude if it ain't doing shit for you you need to let it go"
    • Me: "But I put way too much effort into this thing already man if I let it go it'll just have been one huge waste of time"
    • Therapist: "Dude part of being human is wasting huge chunks of your time all you can do is stop fussing over it and take what you learned from the experience to avoid that same kind of shit in the future. Going on with something like this just because of the time-sink fallacy is unhealthy"
    • Me: "Wait so you're saying obsessing over something that's actively been making my life worse because I can't handle not living up to my own bullshit perfectionist vision of taking on a project for the sake of trying to keep up a false sense of fake self-esteem is a...bad thing???
    • Therapist: "Yes you literal autist Jesus Christ"

    I mean obviously it didn't go exactly like that but that's what I got out of it

    Brainstorm Fest ends tonight, so if there's anything else you still want to do for it, you should probably hurry that up.

    Oh and Aaron released the final episode of his current series. Go read it or something.

    (That's the closest we're getting to Featured Article for a while lmao)

    Editorial

    Alright here's some common internet etiquette that some people don't quite seem to understand: if someone posts something, do not immediately post something of your own over it without at least acknowledging their post. Ideally speaking you would wait long enough to give people a chance to comment on the original person's thing (like at least five-ten minutes depending on the community), but if you absolutely have to post something right away, at least let the person you're posting over know you're not intentionally ignoring them and trying to divert attention away from their thing. I'd be lying if I said this hasn't annoyed me on a personal level a good few times, but since it happened to Aaron in the Discord earlier and he got annoyed about it, I have a chance to talk about this without sounding like I'm complaining about a problem exclusive to me.

    I'm still hyper-depressed and yet I fear the void so I'm just kind of stuck here suffering for eternity hahaha

    This past week was my last week of work until August (for those unaware I work at a school, so I get summer break along with the kids basically), so now I have a lot more free time to spend doing absolutely nothing of substance because of severe psychomotor retardation (it's a depression thing look it up).

    Editorial

    People on Tumblr and the like who glorify depression and autism like "this is who I am and I'm proud cuz it makes me unique yet fragile so the world must bend to me UwU" piss me off like no others. If these assholes actually suffered from these problems like most people, they wouldn't be proud of it, they'd be searching for a cure every day of their goddamn lives. Demonizing people with depression and autism is a horrible thing to do, but encouraging people not to seek treatment because having these disorders makes them "le unique" is equally horrible and could get someone killed.

    A redesign for Blyte from Tech 10: Rebooted.

    Ben 10 News

    The 300th episode of the Ben 10 franchise, Past Aliens Present, has aired, and...I mean, it's pretty decent. I like it. The reboot's writing is getting a lot better, but it is really held back by the art style. Granted, there is one really well-storyboarded scene where XLR8 gets tossed around by a steam robot and the animation manages to convey a good sense of slow-motion impact on a tight budget, but that speaks more to the skill of the storyboarders than the quality of the animation style. I'd like to see what this crew would be capable of on a show with fewer restrictions.

    Happenings

    I've been obligated into writing this issue by my therapist for the sake of getting me off my ass and forcing me to do something. Take that how you will.

    Surprise surprise I'm still really depressed and I still build up a resistance to my antidepressants faster than any normal human person. I'm going to meet with my psychiatrist to discuss changing medications again, but in the back of my head I'm worried that I might eventually just build up a resistance to everything and be completely screwed.

    I'm still working on my projects, albeit way too slowly for any of them to be done anytime soon. To be honest, I'm really struggling to make myself care about them at this point. I know nobody else really does, and I can't help but resent them for sucking up so much of my life in pursuit of making a mediocre final product. I hate them so much. Especially Star Spirit. Words cannot even begin to describe how much I hate Star Spirit. Every other series at least had a goddamn point to existing in my life. OG Tech 10 was made because I was a bored introvert with no friends and nothing to do who needed a fantasy outlet to express himself. Rebooted happened because it reflected my emotions and helped me work through my own personal flaws and depression. Not Applicable happened specifically so I could start improving my writing skills again. Star Spirit existed for literally no reason other than I just kinda wanted it to. There was no purpose behind it to begin with, and there's no purpose to it now other than my own obsessive depressed personality not being willing to let go of something that's clearly had a negative impact on my life because I poured so much time and passion into it that I can't bring myself to just cut my losses and end it already. Writing the ReVised version is a miserable experience because I know I'm technically making something good people would enjoy reading (which isn't even accurate since nobody would even give enough of a shit to read it to begin with) but I don't personally enjoy working on it. I hate it. I hate it with a passion. I hate it beyond words, but I can't make myself let go of it. I'd ask what's wrong with me but I know exactly what's wrong with me, I just don't know how to make it stop.

    Okay jesus christ I wasn't expecting to rant for that long going into that but welp there's that out in the open now I guess. I know nobody's actually going to give half a flying shit but hey that's just the story of my life in a nutshell.

    That new "Thundercats Roar" announcement sure is blowing smoke up everyone's asses. I don't like the look of it, but I've just given up on expecting anything new or unique from Cartoon Network at this point. Like I can understand having your panties in a twist about it to a point, but man, it's just a cartoon. I've seen people attacking and defending this shit like their lives depend on it all over Twitter and it's absolutely ridiculous. Then again, maybe that's my fault for expecting anything other than mindless screeching from the absolute hellsite Twitter has become.
