I'm back! + UPGRADING MY PC: an update

And after almost 2 years, I return to Blogger... :)

Tumblr I've decided is best for more visual posts, art picks and so on.

Anyway, I have always been referring back to this blog mostly for myself, which is what most blogs are about - they're hardly for other people. It's been like an ongoing scrap book of handy notes and memories, like for my computer for example! Exciting stuff .

My Acer X221W (on the left below) has finally died on me, after I finished an hour long cushy set up this morning for myself (it's my birthday too y'see :3).

The right monitor is a donated HP 2310i which is starting to yellow slightly. Both monitors are second hand, so I'm not too upset. HOWEVER, I would like to update to HDMI monitor(s) soon anyhow (finally!).

In the 2 years I've been gone, I upgraded to a new Asus P5G41T-MLX  motherboard (the other one just stopped working somewhere, somehow - then I resold it on eBay as faulty but the Buyer left feedback saying it was a bargain and working fine! pfft o_o). I'm also on a HDMI ready Radeon HD5670 graphics card (which I also sold as faulty on eBay - might've been the real problem - Think I decided to upgrade both instead of getting an engineer in).

Aaaaaannyyyway... boring.

The real highlight is of the past couple years is my Wacom Cintiq 22HD (center above), which is f**king brilliant and has changed my life almost completely. I just got a bubbly screen protector for it, as I managed to get ONE verrrrry light scratch in the near centre of it. Never again! (hopefully!). I haven't exercised the full use of it yet though - but I'm going to. Just need to get a few publications out of the way first...

Other bits I've upgraded to is a cool Wolfking DK-2588 UH gamer keyboard, bought of my friend Az for £10 (which I don't believe I've mentioned before, as I remember many late WoW nights with it - that ended at least 3-4 years a go). And finally, another gem to mention is my ergonomic Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 - because I am petrified of RSI (also why I got a Cintiq).

Welp. That's it for now. Maybe I'll be back with something more interesting next time... :3

I'm Migrating to Tumblr!

If you'd like to keep up with my work, do keep an eye on http://voxie.tumblr.com

I'll be posting art there in the next few months!

In the meantime, you can also check out:

And of course, the main girl www.voxie.co.uk - which will be updated in the coming months too.

Stay tuned ;)

And most of all, be safe and appreciate eachother! xx (you only live the once)

Here's a song I'm listening to right now, just because.
People by Bad Life

Song of the Moment: Please Please Pris

Found through the recent It Came From Japan podcast. Not a bad song. :)

I haven't touched on new J-pop or rock in quite a while. I think I've missed it a little!

Video of the Week: Murmuration

Amazing. The director Sophie Windsor Clive, captured the magic of this with the music perfectly. The tune is from Nomad Soul, which is also called Murmuration, presumably after this video (download it and donate here).
