imo though the other games in the series (esp tides of destiny) are noted to have a more conceptual range for background music in their ost, the original is still just as impactful and worthy of praise with how they can still keep a serene sound subset to the dungeon/town/opening mood even when the track parallels an accurately placed adrenaline or heartbreak tone.  tbh that takes a lot of skill to do that and continue to give the rest of the series irreplaceable osts from the beginning, and i feel a lot of the series taken for granted focusing only on a select few songs or lyrical AMV-esc openings.

  • person: how can you keep that in your ROOM? it wants to kill and eat you!! it's vicious!!
  • my snake: (balls up because I wiggled her feeder at her)
  • my snake: (balls up because she saw a paper towel)
  • my snake: (balls up because she saw her reflection)
  • my snake: (periscopes too high and falls over dramatically, balls up and peeks around like "WHO DID DAT")
  • my snake: (hides in my bra for warmth)
  • my snake: (puts her own head under a running faucet and sits there for ten years) (it feels nice I guess?)
  • my snake: (rubs her chin all over my hand until I scratch the itch)
  • my snake: (gets stuck inside a paper towel tube, balls up when I free her from it, immediately goes back in)
  • me:
  • me:
  • me: totally agree

And she’d be standing next to me [x]

(Woo! Leslie actually did some semi-finished artsy stuff!)

Did you sold your soul to be this talented? Your art is unnatural. It's almost SUPERNATURAL.😅 I love you.

LOL thank you

and if soul-selling was involved i feel like there would’ve been a much bigger jump in ability around like, the age of 16

i feel like 16 year old scout would have considered it

Scout, I have taken your sagely advice and have been listening to game grumps playthroughs while painting. They are so unbelievably funny :D What else do you listen to while you jam draw?

i love listening to comedians!! a lot of them have their comedy albums on spotify. i suggest starting out with aziz ansari and john mulaney

i also recommend

  • Will You Accept This Rose
  • Welcome To Night Vale
  • and i’ve heard good things about My Brother, My Brother, and Me (i’ve seen some of the show, and it’s hilarious)

i also like to listen to albums that have cinematic-like themes and such to them, for instance:

  • Muse - The Resistance, The 2nd Law
  • Gorillaz - Demon Days
  • TWRP - Ladyworld
  • Rasputina - Oh Perilous World
  • The Presidents of the United States of America - These Are The Good Times People, Freaked Out And Small

these are just a handful of examples, but when i listen to these albums when working i feel like i’ve watched a whole movie. i don’t know if this is a common feeling but it’s super satisfying! (AND i’m super late to the party with this one, but i’ve been listening to like, exclusively only Twenty One Pilots for the last week. Blurryface and Vessel are super great albums)

The Death of Savannah Hardin

Little Savannah Hardin (9) of Kenowah, Alabama, was a bright and vivacious child who was the top of her class despite a fractured home life. Her parents were separated, and for much of her early life Savannah was shuttled between homes and caregivers. In early February 2012, Savannah was living with her grandmother Joyce Hardin Garrad, in a detached trailer with a big back yard. Since she began living with her grandmother, Savannah’s teachers noticed welts and bruises on her legs, and she was losing a lot of weight.

On February 10, 2012, Savannah accepted a candy bar from a friend as she rode home on the school bus. When Garrad found the chocolate wrapper she became enraged, as Savannah had a bladder condition that made her sensitive to caffiene. As punishment for eating the candy, Garrad ordered the nine-year-old girl to carry an armload of sticks and run non-stop circles around the yard.

This is gruelling exercise for a young child, and after forty-five minutes Savannah begged for a rest and a glass of water. Garrad instead shouted at her to run faster, and refused to give her a drink. Savannah’s stepmother was present the whole time, but did nothing to stop the abuse.

A neighbor of Garrad later said that Savannah was forced to run for over three hours before she collapsed. During that time Garrad screamed at her granddaughter to “keep running until you’ve learned your lesson”, and laughed when Savannah began to vomit and cry. When the little girl started to seize on the ground, Garrad pushed her inert body with her foot and demanded she get up. It was only when Savannah’s face turned blue that Garrad called an ambulance.

Savannah was rushed to hospital and put on life support, but tragically she died two days later, from dehydration and heart failure. Her emaciated body was covered in half-healed bruises, and she weighed just 63 pounds.

Joyce Hardin Garrad was charged with murder, and tried to defend her actions as “strict discipline”. The judge disagreed, and in 2015 Garrad was found guilty of capital murder. She is currently awaiting a hearing that will determine if she will recieve the death penalty.
