Day 270 - MisterSeth and Monsters! - 9/28/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is a drawring I did of myself in my MisterSeth getup, playing guitar!







I drew this for a music video/slideshow set to music for the Scared Monster song I wrote. When I get enough scared monsters drawn, I'll make the video and put it up!




Look back a couple days for some Scared Monster Pictures!

Day 268 - Another Scared Monster! - 9/26/2015

Today's Thing goes with yesterday's!






I added a tune to yesterday's poem and now it's a song! I plan to make many different monster pictures to make a video for it. I won't subject you to all of them as Thing-a-Day Things, but I might put one in here and there as I make them.

If I do get the video made, that will most likely be a Thing-a-Day Thing.

Until then...

Day 267 - Scared Monsters (a poem) - 9/25/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day is a would-be MisterSeth song!





It's all about monsters being scared.



Here's a better picture of the monster.





Here are the words:


When Monsters get scared
what do they do?
Do their eyes tear up?
Do they cry Boo Hoo?
Do they growl and grunt
and get ready to fight?
Do they bare their fangs
and take a bite?
Do they hide their eyes
and cover their head?
Do they cower in the closet
or dive under the bed?
Do they shiver and shake?
Do they quiver and quake?
Do they get a sudden stomach ache?
Do they run away?
Do they scare you back?
Do they spill their salty monster snacks?
Do they laugh and say "hey that was neat!"?
Or trip over their stinky monster feet?
I'd like to know what a monster would do.
So the next time you see one yell out a "Boo!"





I hope to add music and make a song some time.

Day 266 - Tired Little Ghost - 9/24/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is a new Halloween song!





From youtube:


A new song for the 2015 Halloween season!

Lyrics:

A tired little ghost followed you home tonight
It's resting in the corner of your room.
Not that you would notice if you looked for it
It makes the walls a subtle shade of gloom.

A tired little ghost followed you home.
A tired little ghost followed you home.

It's leaning back, relaxed, silently watching you
as you go about your daily life routines.
It followed you because it finds you comforting
and the rhythms of your life calm and serene.

A tired little ghost followed you home.
A tired little ghost followed you home.

ooo...

The ghost has decided it will stay with you
until your living days come to an end.
And on that day it hopes that you will notice it
and spend the next eternity as friends.

A tired little ghost followed you home.
A tired little ghost followed you home.

ooo...



I'll put it up on bandcamp sooner or later.

Day 265 - How I Feel - 9/23/2015

Today, this:







How I Feel


I feel like
I don't know
how I feel.

If I knew
I'd tell you
but...

Today's gone
it's way
and there's not
much else to say.

I feel like
I feel.

I still don't understand
the appeal of professional sports.

Day 264 - Look at that dog! - 9/22/2015

Day 263 - Church on Sunday (Green Day) cover! - 9/21/2015




Today's Thing.

From youtube:

Here's a cover of Green Day's "Church on Sunday". I kept the first take because I pretty much got all the words right and played most of the notes correctly!


I like the song a lot. I hope you like covers!

Day 262 - Pack-Man! - 9/20/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is Pack-Man!





I did not google this idea before I made this. I'm sure it has been done before, but I have not seen the search results of the people who have done this before me.

Please don't send any of them to me.  I prefer to remain ignorant.

Talk Like a Pirate Day!




From youtube:


Back up vocals by Princess Melawesome and Jobean!


Lyrics:

Talk like a pirate!
I just might.
Talk like a pirate!
Okay, all right.
If you insist
I just may
talk like a pirate
today!


Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!








Day 261 - Company and Conversation: A Drive - 9/19/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing:





I've had this idea for a while now, to make videos where I talk to the camera like it's a friend of mine. Short < 5 minute videos. Calm conversation. Nothing too exciting.

The idea is that people could watch it when they're feeling lonely or blue or just need something quiet and kind. Like a Bob Ross video.


I'm testing it out. Here is the first video. I have a few more planned.

I'm putting ads on these videos. I hate ads on youtube and the internet in general, but I do like the idea of making money off of something I make.

Shares appreciated!





Day 260 - Napkin Doodle! - 9/18/2015

A Thing-a-Day Thing for yesterday!





I was bored this morning and doodled on a napkin. I started by writing my name. Then I drew the little guy. Then I added a hill. And finally I turned the hill into another guy.


I quite like this doodle. I think I'd like to use it professionally some day.


Maybe it could be a bookplate or something.

Day 259 - At a Loss in the Supermarket (an original song) - 9/17/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is an original song I wrote about ice cream:





Lyrics:

I'm standing dumbfounded
in the frozen aisle of
the grocery store.
Surrounded by ice cream
except for the flavor
I'm looking for.

I can't quite remember
oh, what was the
name of it.
It was Ben and Jerry's
I hope it hasn't
been discontinued yet.

I'm standing dumbfounded
in the frozen aisle of
the grocery store.
Surrounded by ice cream
except for the flavor
I'm looking for.

... Oh wait, it's Karamel Sutra...

Day 257 - Halloween Spider (a poem) - 9/15/2015







Scary spider, spun your web

over my pumpkin patch,

The summer season's on the ebb

you watch over this batch.

this batch.

you watch over this batch.


Your solemn guard you stand.

'til Halloween and pumpkins picked

May your web stay strong, each strand

and all of the insects tricked.

'sects tricked.

and all of the insects tricked.


But are your intents unscrupulous?

Your form a fright to see.

I don't mind you being poisonous

if you stay off of me.

of me.

Just stay the fuck off of me.

Day 254 - Turnip Jack-o-Lantern - 9/12/2015

I've read a couple of places that the original Jack-o-Lanterns were made of turnips and other more-common vegetables than pumpkins.

So I made one as today's Thing!







I read that it's better to cut the bottom off than the top, so I did that.




I scooped out the insides with a teaspoon. It smelled very earthy.





It ended up smaller than I thought it would.




I set it on a tea light candle.





But the more I put the turnip around the candle, the less oxygen it got and it started to go out.




I think it turned out pretty cool for my first turnip Jack-o-Lantern. The site I read said that it will only last 3 to 5 days.

I was hoping it would last until Halloween.





Day 253 - the Moat Twins! - 9/11/2015

Yesterday's Thing, made today is the Moat Twins from Eureka's Castle!

Day 251 - Wayward Little Soot Sprite (a poem) - 9/9/2015

Today's Thing:







Wayward Little Soot Sprite
Floating near the roof
darkening the corners
and giving me the proof
of other things out there
of which we're unaware
behind the ceiling fan blades
and underneath the stairs.

It's gently floating downwards
and wafting about my head
filling me with wonder
excitement and some dread.
For Soot Sprites only stick around your house
if you're not good at heart.
To mock, bother, and torment you
and tear your house apart.

But it just keeps on floating
and bobbing up and down
tapping up against the texturing
and skimming o'er the ground.
I guess it just wants to hang out
take a break, relax
nestled on the Couch
and eating Soot Sprite snacks.

I quite like the little guy
and our time, together spent
I quite like his company,
but wish he'd pay more rent.
