who got swagg? first art trade! by goth-ball

Gianna, as the man who is in here, let me just say that you did an outstanding job at drawing my OC! You copied every detail that you s...

Hello, people and welcome to another one or Ruben's Ramblings: where I just talk and say things that are just generally plaguing my mind or topics that aren't enough to do a whole post on.

Now, the last time I did a post, it was about my father's recent death. And again: I'm fine. I've done all the mourning I could do and I'm at the point of just accepting the pain and coping with the lost. Grant it, it still hurts that I'm never gonna see him again, but what heals those pains are the memories and pictures I have of him, the character I made of him to help me remember, the fact that he's no longer in great pain from his health problems and the fact that he'll always have a place in my heart. Also, I would like to thank all of the commentators, online friends, offline friends, family members; all of you for giving me a piece of love and helping me get through this. I know I'm sounding like a certain green striped shirt wearing (or square shirt wearing) person when I say this, but I couldn't of done it without you. My only hope now is that, if there is some sort of afterlife (Heaven, the Land of the Remembered, or even the, freaking, Overthere), I hope my father's there and knows that I loved him more than I did any other man in my life. And I hope I was as good as a son to him as he was as good of a dad to me :happycry:

And now onto the lighter side of the coin. Just yesterday, PBS premiered their holiday special; Peg + Cat + Holidays. And, honestly, I, freaking, love that title. It reminds me of "Kid vs. Kat vs. Christmas". :giggle: Anyways, it wasn't really that much of a special; it was just a compilation of a few of the P+C episodes; The Hanukkah, Christmas and Penguin Problems. I missed the Christmas Problem last year, so I managed to see it this year. And it's an ok holiday special. It's your typical "Save Christmas" special where Peg and Cat fly off to the North Pole in their spaceship (Which is shaped like part of their house) to have hot coco with Kris Kringle. However, Santa's having a problem: since there's are so many more kids in the world and so many of them want so many stuff, Santa and his team needs to work extra hard. So, Peg, being the kid she is, invites Saint Nick, his elves and his deer to have a break in her spaceship with some hot coco. All goes well until one of the reindeer goes into the control room of the ship and accidentally press a button that causes the ship to go to one of the pre-programmed automatic-piloted destinations. Which one: Not the north pole. So, Peg and Cat has to get everything ready for Christmas until Santa comes back. It was a nice special, but the only thing that really stuck with me was the "One Step at a Time" song, which is soothing and yet, emotional. As for the Hanukkah and Penguin problems, they're also just normal P+C episodes, nothing to really write home about. Except for the fact that the Hanukkah problem guest stars Albert, freaking, Einstein! Seriously! It's about a Hanukkah party at Einstein's house! Honestly, I didn't even know that Einstein was Jewish: the only thing I know about him is that he's smart as balls. And the Penguins Problem is just about helping a few penguins get ready for a Winter Olympics-ish show. You can see all of these episodes on the Peg + Cat video website. You also find an episode called The Flatwoman Problem.

It's a sort-of-sequel to the Arch Villain Problem and the Flat and Narrow Problem. Actually the F&N Problem is the sequel; this is the 3rd part, I guess. See, in the Arch Villain Prob, Super Peg and Cat Guy (Yes, they're superheroes here) are trying to save the city of Mathtropolis from the Arch Villain: a badguy who is so obsessed with Arches that he wants to make every shape into one. After stopping him, Arch is put in a program called the Straight and Narrow where it's his job to straighten and narrow out uneven shapes. At first our heroes think that all of the shape-based crimes around the city are caused by Arch Villain, but turns out it's caused by Triangulo: who is just the P+C Pig in a villainous role. And he's basically the triangular version of Arch Villain. And Flat Woman, the villainess whom he teams up with in the Problem with her name. And if I had 3 things to say about Flat woman it's

A. She manages to be the first thing that can be flat in 2D animation,

B. She's dressed like Cat Woman and has the voice like Yzma, Cruella De Vil and that Animal Control lady for Madagascar 3. Except, whoever's doing this Flat Lady's voice is actually a good singer, unlike those characters.

And C. The romantic sideplot that Cat has with her is the most adorable thing on the show since Peg's crush on that Ramon guy.

However both the Flat Woman and 
Hanukkah problems are focused on shapes and their dimensions so there really isn't that much to say about any of these episodes besides the fact that they're cute and harmless. :aww: 

Also, that "Step at a Time" song, just like the CMC's "Hearts as Strong as Horses", is gonna be playing in my head whenever I go to the gym. Yes, I'm still going to the gym. But the most frustrating part is that I'm not getting any results. :x And the VERY frustrating part is I have a friend from high school who also started working out in the gym in the summer, like me. I ran into him a few months ago and the guy was ripped compared to his pencil-necked from graduation. I haven't seen him since, but I am so, freaking, jealous. I've wanted a muscular body ever since I was...me. It's pretty much my personal fantasy. And the weirdest part is was my dad's younger life, according to my mom. He was the kind of muscle you'd ask to push furniture around. So, I guess this kinda thing is genetic. However, I've been working out at the gym for roughly 6 months now and I'm not even showing signs of losing fat, let alone gaining muscle. Honestly, it's moments like this that make me wish that wishes came true. Because if they did, the first thing I'd wish for would be to have my muscular dream body and the 2nd would be to have the cool powers that Ruben has. What does that body even look like, you may ask? Well, during my research on muscular character drawing in order to make Ruben's current design, I've seen the surprisingly large amount of muscle growth in order to learn how to draw it. I've seen lots of cool designs and styles. But do you know what artist had the style of muscular expansion that was closest, if not, almost exactly to my vision of my dream body?

:iconmindloop:

No, seriously, the guy's style is perfect to my dream. Most muscular people (Both in cartoons and in real life) are kinda weirdly built. Especially the huge steroid sluggers. However, Mindloop's is more of a built of the big muscles and also a big overall body size and therefore is better proportioned. He also doesn't do the thing where the person's body gets big but their head stays small. Or at least he does, and he doesn't shrink it to the point where it looks weird. I'm not saying the guy's the best, I'm not saying he's perfect: I'm saying that if I could get my hands on a genie and wish for a muscular bod, I'd point to one of his pictures as reference. Also, a lot of the growth excuses are growth spurts: the characters are short one day and wake up the next morning as studs. I would KILL! to have that be the case for me when I went through puberty. Hell, I wouldn't mind going through that tonight; going to bed and waking up in my dream body. In fact I wish that happened.

Why am I saying all of this online? Well,

one; let's face it, me wanting a muscular body isn't that much of a secret. :roll:

And 2. I'm a really open kid and I don't really care about what others think of me anymore.

So, there we go: an updating on the mourning of my dead father, a review of a Math Based Christmas Special and my wish to be a muscular bond hunk to the specific design of an artist I like. Par for the course here in Brainstormer623-Land!

Goodnight, everybody! :la:
