Ain't That A Kick In The Head?

Man, I have been having WAY too much fun today.

I don't know what the deal is; normally this holiday bums me out. I've been WAITING for it to bum me out. Somehow, I've ended up in this crazy state of euphoria. Most of which I'm currently attributing to Whitesnake. This is seriously the funniest Valentine's Day I've ever had. I'm barely even gonna mention St. Valentine's Day Massacre like I normally do every year. This year I have Big Plans.

I created a fully-penciled, -inked, and -colored piece of "art" today. Most of this was done while listening to crazy 80's hair metal bands and so-bad-they're-good "love" songs. After I post this, I'm goin' downstairs... I'm gonna fire up the Guitar Hero III... and I'm gonna blast every cheezy rock ballad that game has. Then I'm gonna go to work (not my favorite part of these Big Plans, but whatever). Then I'm gonna get some Chinese food, come home, and watch a gangster movie. The entire time all of this is happening I will have the biggest grin on my face, mainly because I'm dodgin' this guy (as the J. Giles band once said: Love Stinks):



Quoth Cluracan of the Fair Folk: "It's amazing how much one can accomplish in an evening, if one is willing to expend a little effort, and to walk briskly."

Mmmkay.

I wouldn't want THAT dude shooting arrows at me either.

I find it amusing that you should draw this portly, hairy, rather sleazy looking cupid and mention the Cluracan in the same post.

I love his cheesy comb-over, by the by.

There is a simple elegance to 80's hair metal "love" songs.

We can do without all the romance and "drama" poppy-cock. Normally, love is so COMPLICATED. He said this, and she said that, and so and so says that what's her face is angry... blah blah blah. Love needs to be nurtured, and as all guys no, nurturing is a lame chick word that we don't understand.

But in rock and roll, it's all so simple... you just take your love... and you put it in them. That's all. So sweet... so simple...

Just give her your love.

Catherine: My thoughts exactly.

Kevin: I never much liked Cluracan, personally, so it's not THAT odd.

The Ninja: Ewwww.

Kevin said...

Oh, I didn't mean it was odd. I just found it amusing, since the Cluracan is kind of a big sleezeball slut. If he weren't of the Fair Folk, I'd expect him to look like your cupid someday.

This is funny ... ha ha ha!

I had the same weird behavior on Valentines Day myself. I thought it would be totally depressing .. but it ended up being quiet a fun day. Perhaps the planets were aligned in the "fun" house this year? Who knows?
