  This livejournal account will NO LONGER BE UPDATED and is now DEAD. 

  I'm not sure what the procedure is but I think accounts here get deleted after a while for inactivity.

  It's time for you all to visit me at MY NEW BLOG THING HERE from now on instead. The catch-up posts of every_demographic will end in a while, and after that I can focus on more new ones and everything will be back to normal only better. Surely you are now thrilled beyond your wildest dreams.

  I've started my blogspot now. Do you rike it?

  Until I catch up via updating daily to where every_demographic is now, I'll still be using this livejournal.

  every_demographic should be getting its own website soon though.

  I EMailed somebody. The same somebody who brings you the wonder that is bowonbirdo and Back of the Cereal Box. It concerned my use of graphics from Super Mario Bros. 2 / Super Mario Bros. USA as inspired by his work;

  Hey man. Thanks for the email. I'm flattered that you liked my piece, and I'm always happy to hear from other gay people who play video games. And no, I don't think your piece constitutes plagiarism.

It's actually especially odd that you're in Otago. My dad is from New Zealand and I've been many, many times. I think I have family living in Otago, actually, though I'm not out to them and am not especially close. But I was in NZ just last January for the whole month. So, yeah, it's remote but not that far off.

What's it like being gay in New Zealand? Whenever I got, I spend most of the time with relatives who live in smaller towns. And I hardly saw any gay people the last time I went through.

All the best,
Drew

  I should make the move to blogspot soon.

  Money this week has gone to mostly screenings of Evangelion 2.0, and Fair Trade chocolate.

  The idea of doing volunteer work overseas is appealing to me more and more. I would probably be terrible at it. In photos this week, is this lovely girl who gave me free coffee for free, for some reason, at the local Trade Aid store. She was so soft spoken, and bewildering. I thought that it was a shame that I'm homosexual but even if I were attracted to her in particular I'd probably fail to live up to her standards, whatever they are.

  Even though every_demographic is not set in our world, I'm thinking Sai should be of Indian descent in appearance? Or maybe from the Pacific Islands. It's concerned me that I haven't made her skin really, really dark. Though it's been getting darker. Also, the main setting should look more like somewhere that is not western. Maybe.

  Oh hey look.

  I have discovered this and this which is based on this. I also found myself at the Blue Oyster Art Project Space thanks to a few friends which lifted my mood due to the obscurity of the whole event. There was a small 'mountain' made up of shaped vinyl records, which made sounds when you interacted with the needle of a record player fastened onto the wall.

  Then there was a room filled with dirt and some photography of related urban decay on the walls (I missed the part when the dirt was actually getting thrown around). It got us talking about human mating rituals. I'm not sure if that was the intention of the artist but that's what happened.

  I don't want to be in love.

  I think it's over.

  A friend of mine who's fixing my jeans ran up to me in the street yesterday. She and her friends were 'running away' from fashion school to go to the park despite the fact that they had an upcoming checkpoint to have work done for. "This is the first time we've been outside in days!", she exclaimed. I would make a comic out of it, but I won't.

    I can hear you now all thinking "Oh geez he's doing something akin to a short storyline". Deal with it. I'm trying to learn things here. I mean, all my images are so dense. Pixels of varying size. Hard outlines. Hand written text. Videogame font. I'm trying to figure out how to fix it all together. CHECK OUT THE CONTINUITY ERROR.

  EDIT: Fixed the continuity error and have now designated Phantos as representative symbols for alcohol in general.

  Listen to this. Or this is you wanna' feel a little happier, like I do sometimes.

  Higher quality link. Though that particular scan is a little askew.

  I should mention that Dead Claus and Chrome Gadget Zone both sold for NZD$49.00 (Roughly USD$.) and NZD$99.00 (Roughly USD$70.00) respectively, and that all my works were given a highly commended award as a whole. It's nice having space back on my walls in the absence of paintings. As for the sales themselves, they were bough by an arts lecturer. I wonder why she liked them.

  I'll be happy the day that my stuff is bought by some popular hipster with lots of friends or something.
