"Forced" to do it by [livejournal.com profile] evilsherbear - modified by me, cuz I'm evil that way (italics is text that I added):

The first five people to comment in this post saying "MIKEY IS BETTER THAN RAPH" get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing draw them a picture of something!. In return, they have to post this I would REALLY like it if they would post this or a similar meme (although that is optional) in their journal, regardless of their ability level.


I will draw to the best of my ability! Even Original Characters! :D I can't promise the drawings will be in color, since I don't computer color well, but we will see :D

I'm doing this to get my drawing juices flowing. :] And also to have some NEWER art to fill up my DA Account. I drew zombie Mikey last night and I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure what else to draw. I might ask for more takers if the 1st 5 drawings work out well.
micaturtle: (Importants!)
Blah. I've been feeling really out-of-sort lately. (like this whole last week or so) It's a strange feeling... Whenever I try to read fanfic (something I usually enjoy doing immensely) I get distracted and just don't feel like reading it. :\ I'm not sure what it is... burnout of some sort maybe? (Even though I don't know WHY I'd be burned out, I haven't been reading any more or any different types of fanfic than I usually read.) I've also been feeling that way about my job, like I just don't wanna do it, and also about a lot of other things in my life. *sai* I hope it's just a temporary thing and I can snap out of it. :P

Thankfully, TODAY the "funk cloud" I've been moping around in seems to have lifted a bit. (Again, not sure why, but it's appreciated.) So at least I've felt motivated enough to write this LJ entry. So that's good I guess.

Jenn, Mandy Anne, & I are going to Convergence, a sci-fi convention in Minneapolis, this weekend. :D It's going to be fun (I'm starting to get excited about it, but like I said it's hard with the funk I'm in lately. Which is strange because usually I'm MEGAexcited about cons.)

Jenn, Mandy Anne, [livejournal.com profile] moronqueen, & I are going to do the sexy turtles cosplay again on Saturday XD It's going to be a lot of fun, I hope. I think it will be better this time because since the Con isn't as huge as NYCC, we can stay together as a group more. (It's *TOTALLY* a costume that needs to be done as a group.)

I'm thinking of pulling out my red Loli dress (or maybe my purple one) and just going as a normal lolita on Friday. Hmmm....

Stoopid Spam bots! MY LIVEJOURNAL IS NOT YOUR PLAYGROUND! Argh. I seem to be getting a ton of spam comments lately (they especailly seem to be targeting This entry for some reason.) :p Most of the spam is about cheap "sowtware" (misspelling of software)

Stuff about my upcoming utah trip and mikey commission piccy I bought for Jenn under cut )

PS. Also, just because I haven't said anything about this post doesn't mean I'm not upset about it. I just haven't had time to write anything up about it. (I wrote the majority of the above post yesterday)

I don't know if any of you have read [livejournal.com profile] geaven's "RAPHAEL: The Owner’s Guide and Maintenance Manual", but I added 4 FAQs to it (at the bottom). Clicky here to go read the awesome ficcage

hee hee. I enjoyed writing them so much (esp the one about Raph's eye. That poor turtle can't seem to keep his eyes intact! ;) and now I NEEDZ to write more FAQs for the TMNT. I am enjoying myself WAY too much. ;D

I will update ya'll when I write more :D

((NOTE: I *AM* watching the comments on Geaven's entry, so if you leave a review on there, I *WILL* see it, no worries ;))
micaturtle: (Poke with a Sword?)
Hi All!
I am wondering if anyone has any answers/thoughts/suggestions regarding this question:

Are there any generic personality types that are NOT covered by the 4 turtles? Every "type" that I've thought up is already covered by a turtle (or in some rare cases, Splinter).

Can anyone help me out here?? Please let me know your ideas!


(NOTE: Comments are open to everyone, even if they DON'T have an LJ account!)

Here is the writeup about Saturday!! This is the day we all dressed up as sexy ninja turtles. It was made of AWESUHM! :D
Sunday MIGHT be posted tomorrow, but I can't promise, as I am not finished writing it (okay, so I lied when I said I was completely done with my writeup) Hopefully if I don't get it posted tomorrow, I'll get it finished by the end of the weekend (although I don't know, I tend to be notoriously lazy on weekends)
And *MAYBE* I'll have a sexy girl!Mikey icon by then. I just have to remember to ask/beg/cajole [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy into making one for me :D
Finally, as before, I will reward all people who read thru this posting (or actually, anyone who clicks on the lj-cut and goes and looks) with a fun TMNT piccy! XD

Yes I do! :)

My old car (a 1990 Toyota Corrolla) was named "Mondo Gecko" because he liked to go up on curbs like a skateboard! (it might have had a TINY bit to do with the driver, since Mondo was my FIRST car, but... ;D)

My new car is named "The Mikey-Mobile" (or sometimes Mikey for short) due to the fact it's awesome and orange. Speaking of awesome, I got my personalized plates and put them on. Here's a piccy!!!

My Car - w personalized plates

Awesome, ney? Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy (Jenn) for paying for them. She's my awesome sweetycakes! :D
micaturtle: (Hermes Talks)
First of all, my friend [livejournal.com profile] kaz26 wrote me an AWESOME lil TMNT ficlet for a Xmas present: See it's shinyness? Yay! It's imageverse, and made of AWESOME :D (altho I might be biased since I'm kinda an image fangirl)

Secondly, I am WORKING on my fanfic xmas gifts to others. *beam* got one that's ALMOST complete, but Don's inner monologue has got me a little stuck. Blech. Oh well, I'm just happy to be writing again :D

Thirdly, my paid LJ account expired about a week ago (it was a year membership that my sweety-pumpkin [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy bought for me in 2008 for xmas). I am SERIOUSLY considering renewing the account. I don't mind the ads TOO much (although they are VERY annoying) but the lack of email notifications is bothering me. So is not being able to edit my comments. :p I also miss my notes. :{ I like to be able to mouse over someone and know where I know them from! With the coupon Jenn sent me it would only be $9.95 for the year... what do ya'll think, should I renew? EDIT: WOW!! [livejournal.com profile] kaz26 is AWESOME! She gave me a gift of 2 months of paid LJ for free!! :D that makes me happiness. I really mean it, Thank you kazzy! It helps a LOT having that little money worry no longer on my mind! :D

Fourthly, my mouse at work is DUMB. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. *grumbles* I wants an optical mouse! *grumbles some more*

Finally, I am finishing up making the turtles forever DVD. It took a little finagling but I think I got it. Blech. stupid AVI format. I beat you with stick.
micaturtle: (Default)
EEEEEE! I got a birthday card from Jen's mom on friday. Yay for target gift card! :D Also, I got a Xmas card from [livejournal.com profile] autumndandelion THANKS SO MUCH! ...eeee! IS KITTY!!!! *squeals*


idea stolen from [livejournal.com profile] kaz26
Since I'm trying to write some more (and I'm poor) I decided to offer Christmas Gift Ficcys! They will be little ficlets, unless the muse grabs me and makes me write. I can't guarantee that the results will be SFW :) Also, I WILL NOT WRITE INCEST (Turtlecest OR Elric-cest). Original Characters are welcome with the Ninja Turtle fandom, but sadly, not welcome with the other fandoms. (Sorry those are the rules!)

For theme, you can give me a full idea, or something as simple as a prompting word :D

Fandoms that I am willing to write include: Ninja Turtles, Animorphs, Kino No Tabi(Kino's Journey), & Full Metal Alchemist.

If you want a ficlet, please comment with the following info -

Pairing or Character-centric:
Theme and/or idea:

Here's crossing my fingers I can get these done before the new year! :D

WHOA! I actually WROTE something! It's been a WHILE since I wrote fanfic :D I wrote this for [livejournal.com profile] tmnt_tuesdays but since I don't think there are any rules against cross-posting, I'm going to post it here to my journal too. PLEASE give me critique on it :) Do ya'll think I should write more fanfic or am I a lost cause? ;)

Remember this AWESOME plushie that Jenn gave me for the Mikey-Mobile?

Someone STOLE the Michaelangelo plushie from my car! (either that or it SOMEHOW MAGICALLY hid itself somewhere on the floor of my car. I'm going to clean out the back seat completely when I get home and see if it's there.) There's also the POSSIBILITY that it fell off my window when I was loading clothes in and out of my car (for laundry-doing purposes) at my mom's on Thanksgiving. However, I think one of my siblings would tell me if Mikey was laying on the street in front of their house. Hmmm... nope, I just called my sister and Mikey is not there either. ARGH! *pouts*

I will haffa pull out my other Mikey plushie and put him up, but it makes me sad because my sweety jennifer gave me that other mikey plushie *pouts* I want to post a note next to him that says "dear dingleberry who took my other mikey plushie: Please don't take this plushie or I shall hunt you down and NINJA KICK your damn ass!". Or maybe make up some "Lost" posters and put them up around my apartment complex *G* ;D That would at least make me FEEL a little better. I may do that tonight. hee hee.

In other (good) news, my birthday is tomorrow! :) I will be 29. Jenn already gave me my B-day present, I got New Super Mario Brothers Wii! :D It is MADE OF AWESOME! think Super Mario world layout, but with lots moar goodies and MUCH better graphics! :D My mom also gave me my present too! :D A new pair of jeans! Yay! I needed thems! ALso, I am so *PROUD* of my little Jenn-gurl! She went BY HERSELF and asked an employee at Shopko for my Mario game! Wow! I know this doesn't seem like a lot to many of you, but Jenn is a bit socially phobic, so it's a BIG thing for her! *sends snuggles to Jenn-Jenn*

Gah... there are a lot of b-days grouped around mine! Happy B-day [livejournal.com profile] anticia (Nov 30th)! :D O_O Happy late b-day to [livejournal.com profile] reijiro75 (Nov 26th?) & [livejournal.com profile] hamato_kameko (Nov 28th) And happy EARLY birthday to [livejournal.com profile] sneefee & [livejournal.com profile] jeegoo (both the day after mine, December 2nd)

Also, I watched the 1st of the 3-part Turtles Forever on saturday. THEY EDITED IT EVEN FURTHER!!! ARRRRGHHHH!!! *grumbles* Damn it!

Regarding the Turtles forever homemade DVD. I will make 3 copies, one for Jem, one for robina, and one for geaven. *pokes [livejournal.com profile] reijiro75* Does you wants edited copy, rei?? Nyar? Hopefully this eventually comes out on REAL DVD with the deleted scenes back in it. :p *crosses fingers*
micaturtle: (Nyar?)
Okay, this is the question. I know I promised DVD copies of Turtles Forever to some of you. Those that I can remember are [livejournal.com profile] geaven, [livejournal.com profile] robina1984, [livejournal.com profile] jem0000000, [livejournal.com profile] engelina_c, [livejournal.com profile] lindentreeisle, [livejournal.com profile] reijiro75, & [livejournal.com profile] cynlee (sorry if I forgot anyone, LET ME KNOW! ;)

Anyway, my question is this. Since ppl have posted Turtles forever on You tube, and also there are torrents of it available, do you all still want a home-made DVD of it, or can you wait for them to (hopefully) release an official DVD? (which will hopefully be un-edited) I ask this because the one they showed on TV *WAS* edited for time, and I'm not a big fan of distributing non-complete versions of things. Please let me know what your wishes are.

Also, I am going to be DVRing the TMNT Forever the next 3 saturdays and see if MAYBE they don't edit the movie when they split it into 3 parts *crosses fingers* If they don't and I get the full movie that way, then this post is moot and I will be sending out DVDs.

On another note, Turtles Forever ROCKED. As someone said at San D Con this year "It's like a love letter to the fans!" I love it SO much! ;D
micaturtle: (Default)
Okay, I've had some time to absorb the news from yesterday, and here is what I think.

Everyone keeps freaking out over the new transition. RELAX, IT'S NOT BAD!!

It's kinda like GW's comparison of the parent's (Kev & Pete) divorcing and the wrong parent getting the Kids. It's like all of the sudden the "kids" (the TMNT) got yanked out of the parent's custody and placed in an adoptive family's home. It doesn't matter how wonderful the new home is, or how badly the Kids were being neglected, the knee-jerk reaction is sadness. However it is what is best for the "kids"!

I think if we had gotten a LITTLE pre-warning like even a post saying "Oh yeah! Something big might be coming up! So keep your eyes peeled!" last week or something, the fandom wouldn't be in such a giant frothy ball of anger, confusion, and angst right now. (although, there would be some of that, but hopefully not as much) But that's just more of Peter's strange way of interacting with the fans and mis-handling the turtles. Which is MORE REASON why we should be GLAD they are going to a new, more posh, home. :)

Think about all the things Nickelodeon can do for the TMNT! It's gonna be so awesome. I'm all squeally just thinking about it! :D Not to mention, Nick is prolly the BEST corporate entity to get control of the TMNT that I can think of. They tend to LISTEN to fans, and I'm happy they are in good hands! :D


I hope now that some of us have had some time to digest the news that most of the fandom will settle down and realize the awesome potential of this move! :D


EDIT: Also, take into account the fact that Nickelodeon owns 3 (that I know of) stations that show cartoons! Nickelodeon, The N, and Nicktoons Network. And since they paid so much for TMNT, I doubt they will let them sit dormant. YAY for awesomeness of re-runs!
micaturtle: (Oh My)
Wow. For those of you who don't know yet, Nickelodeon just BOUGHT TMNT for $60 Mil I don't know what to say. I am just completely stunned.

Does Global rights mean that Nick now OWNS the TMNT? Do they own all the old stuff or just stuff from now on?

Also, did ANYONE in the fandom feel this coming AT ALL? Am I the only one who didn't even KNOW they were TALKING to Nickelodeon? I wonder if Nick approached Mirage or Mirage approached Nick... ? Gah. There seems to be an egregious lack of information out there, with most news stories just repeating and/or rephrasing the reuters report. Am I TOTALLY out of the loop here, or did this hit any other die hard TMNT fans here it came outta left field?

I am so confused. I am in a fog. My chest feels tight and I know I am as close as Mica ever comes to speechless right now. I'm going to busy myself with work. I KNOW I will have more to say after I have some time to digest, but right now I'm just floored.

My friend [livejournal.com profile] thegreatmandyii drew this for me:

Mikey is astonished... AND NEKKID! ;D

click here for Michaelangelo Tattoo Goodness! (and pics!) :D )
micaturtle: (Default)
Well, I am planning on getting my ninja turtle tattoo very soon. (sometime in the next week or two) Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) is planning on getting hers at the same time. She's getting a Leo, and I'm getting (predictably) a Michaelangelo. :) I want to thank you all for the advice you've offered. We found a guy who seems to do awesome work, and he's even a ninja turtle fan of sorts :) Jenn's been agonizing over exactly how to get her Leo, but I think I'm going to get my mikey to look sorta like this:

Awesome mikey

I got this pic from a japanese ninja turtle site that has since disappeared off the face of the web :p
I will print it out and do a lot of messing around with it first probably. I want it to be PERFECT, and there are a few things I want to change. I should make a list (I like lists):
1) darker skin tone
2) Move the foot so it doesn't look so funky (maybe move it around so the name is in front of him, but the hand is in front of the words somehow, maybe have the body end into the words)
3) make the background colors a little more primary, less sunny
4) open up the other eye

Damn, I keep having second thoughts. Like maybe I should get a more realistic looking Mikey tattoo... But I've seen so many of those and I think I want a more abstract type tattoo. That way i don't have to worry about it looking old if a new "style" of turtles comes out. Also, if I keep it more abstract I can make it smaller. Then maybe I can get another mikey later on if I want something larger and more realistic. hmmm...

GOD! I KEEP WAFFLING!! BAD MICA! *pout* For those of you who have tattoos out there on my f-list (especially those with ninja turtle tattoos) How did you choose exactly what to get tattooed and how and why? Is there anything you've regretted since then? PLEASE SHARE WITH ME! I APPRECIATE IT!
micaturtle: (Poke with a Sword?)
Argh. I couldn't sleep last night. It sucked eggs. :p I should have posted this meme last night, but I got distracted playing pogo crosswords.

and of course, I don't think it needs to be mentioned, but the fandom I answered this for is Ninja Turtles, of course! ;D

Which of the 7 deadly fandom sins are you guilty of? )

Hmm... so I'm only 70% fandom evil ;D Heavy in Sloth and Vanity. Yeah, that sounds like me. ;)

EDIT: Wait a minute, I think that mean that I think I'm a shizzat but I'm too lazy to do anything about it! .... *blink* AWESOME! ;D
micaturtle: (Shiney Donnie)
Hee hee. I got this daily strip in my email today and it made me chuckle:


(try this link if the above link for some reason doesn't work. ;)

I *ADORE* the shadowing on Raphs(?) face in the middle panel. I might use this strip fro reference when I ask Dan Berger to do me a commission next time :D

Also... Raph has alligators in his room? *blinka*
micaturtle: (ARGH)
