To give a sense of the story I’m working on. Picture this. If it were a movie, with enough of a budget, it would be the most serious flavor of Colin Farrell imaginable, teaming up with Donald Glover. As two idiot, ex-gutter punks who, now that they’re adults, take on the mob in New York City and some how succeed. All with a tone like Lucky Number Slevin. Complete with a tragic back story that connects everything.
Some sketches to get the creative blood flowing again after being down for almost a week. Being sick blows, that’s all I’ll say. So enjoy some grumpy face Crawford while I get back to work.
if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future
because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive
our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.
'Eat your fucking fruit'
'Drink your fucking water'
A lesson by Colin Farrell
Dear Tumblr. This is your daily reminder of positivity and encouragement. You are stronger than you realize. It may not feel like it, but you have ultimate control over how you feel. It may not be immediate, but I promise you that you do. You just have to be patient.
Whether choosing to shift your mood, seeking outside help, or just doing something different. Whether it’s choosing to say something nice when you could have been mean. Or making that call to get at herapist. Or that free hotline for mental help. Or just taking a few moments to indulge in something you enjoy.
If you are reading these words right now, you have the power to change something. To improve things. Maybe not everything. But you are not alone and you are not required to suffer. Putting yourself first for your own mental health is not selfishness. Anyone who says otherwise is maybe someone you should distance yourself from.
Even if it’s just a small change today. It’s a step in the right direction. Even if that small thing is just letting yourself know that at least one person out there is rooting for you. Someone who wants nothing more than to be the best version of yourself.

Hey look. My art in a book trailer. How cool is that?
IF YOU ARE STREAMING, DON’T USE PROCASTER.
DON’T. USE. PROCASTER.
Livestream procaster consumes large amounts of cpu for nothing. No joke, nothing. As a result your stream can become laggy and sometimes it can damage your hardware as your PC has to push itself to keep what your streaming functioning as well as possible.
"But if we can’t use procaster what can we use insteaaaaad?"
Simple. There’s two programs, both that are free, that you can use that uses very little CPU and has more options than procaster. These programs are called Xsplit and OBS. To keep your head in one piece, I’m going to go over how to stream on Livestream with Xsplit.
Under the cut of course.
I just ran a 2-hour test of this. It works flawlessly. Procaster would usually hiccup or bug out every 20 minutes or so. Full-screen video on one monitor that I was broadcasting as my test. Other monitor had Photoshop and several high res images.
After I turned Aero off, there wasn’t even the tiniest lag.
On Procaster, if I shut down everything with a small document in Photoshop only, it lags horribly. So, this one’s a keeper.
After some research and realizing how fucking positive and precious he’s become, I am officially adding Colin Farrell to my list of inspiring people.
