I did a vlog on my graveyard shift YouTube channel; explaining why I no longer draw. That reluctance and general distaste for the act of drawing is why I don't update this account much. If I'm not enjoying the process and I don't have any goals or ambitions for my Art then there's no reason for me to be making it. It's just taking up time when I could be doing something I care about. So I hope this clears up why this account isn't being used. I might put random bullshit on here from time to time that has no real place anywhere else, but apart from that I doubt you'll be seeing me. Maybe I'll start drawing again when I'm older and actually upload it, idk.

Thought I'd compile these Facebook posts I made out of frustration, boredom, and spontaneity. For those of you who have nothing better to do with your lives but read self help from a Teenager. Each little post was meant to stand on there own until I spiraled out of control Endless Jess style to rant and rave while making a cohesive point spanning throughout all of them.
BEGIN
If I wanted the plot summary, I'd look it up somewhere else don't flood your 5 minute review with a bunch of facts with no conclusion. Context is important in long videos sure, but don't spend 2 minutes on something so significant. Also get to the point already!!!
One of the reasons why so many people love the Nerd is the context surrounding the games he analyzes. It's a childhood stinker that's haunted him forever and he finds creative ways to express that. Use the medium of reviews to tell more about yourself not info dump.
What's the point of me watching your video if it's just "meh" to you? All this "fact buildup" with absolutely no point? You should go into a video because you have an idea or a funny concept that works with that game. If you just wanna talk about "this thing" without any real ideas buzz off.
Every piece of Art is different. Applying the exact same rules to every work is asinine. Some shows I like for the aesthetic value alone. Others I love the characters and story. Others are just weird and out there. Does that mean they can't all be 10\10s for being different? No! There's no objective standard for "how to art".
It's important not to get stuck in some trap of doing the same video every time or else people will lose interest. No you don't have to start a bunch of series. You just can't fall into one structure or else you'll become derivative.
Sure your established audience may handle the same crap shoveled down their throat with obedience and consent, but you have to ask how much do you want new followers? Do you want to be a good Artist? Or a hack who never evolves? It's your choice.
As YouTube grows and evolves with more people doing it, there's bound to be a higher standard of quality. The over saturation argument of getting YT Followers only works for those doing crappy content. In 2006 YouTube any terrible AVGN clone who didn't even get his videos could become popular. Now better writing and production value are needed. Marketing, real effort. Don't sit there and whine if you aren't willing to work towards your goals. With that attitude you'll never get anywhere in life.
When I put out rallying cries on how to do proper videos, I then remember I can correct all these problems I have with others. Make the stuff I wanna see and be proud of how much better my Art is by comparison. Lol.
A lot of people give up on Scripting videos because they can't emote their voice properly. Instead of giving up keep trying. When you start at the bottom, through effort there's the only way to go is up. If you like writing and want written content (which is usually better than not anyway) just do it. It takes time with anything. Learn from the masters like JonTron, AVGN, Egoraptor, or RebelTaxi. Do some research on voice acting. Read it back multiple times.
I don't want me critiquing someone's content to sound like I'm being negative. When I explain how to improve, it comes from a good place. I've had people get offended at my posts (even without directly talking about them). I just want everyone to grow and aspire for greatness. Shouldn't we all want that? Don't be a settler!
END
So that was all those posts. Maybe fi I go on another heartfelt rage induced ti-raid ending with me railed to a cross again I'll make another compilation. You may be wondering why did I feel the need to post some Facebook rant on here? I am a really that proud of such a simple thing? Any accomplishment is a good accomplishment. I got out of bed spontaneously to do that. Better than posting anti Semitic memes all day. Logan out!
I FINALLY DID A NEW MAIN CHANNEL VIDEO! [link]

The Daily Frustration
Yeah..... fuck the DA App...... fuck the DA App. I tried post a impassioned speech to motivate those in a similar position to me. It was a fun post, and I considered it one of my best blogs. Either my Tablet screwed me or Deviant Art did. For whatever reason, my Tablet's Wi-Fi was rendered useless and DeviantArt signed me out of my account. I had my post written but I had to sign back in. This ended with me losing the whole journal post, and it was one I had a lot of fun with. Too bad I suppose. No one will ever see it.

There Will Be Nothing Like That Post
It makes me really sad that App had to screw up before that Journal could be posted. I was really proud of it and no matter how much from memory I can recall it's gone. The flow was spot on and the passion and emotion was there. I had never done anything for DA at that level. Those App people need to get their shit together.

Christmas
Christmas came just a few days ago. I gotta say this was a great year for me. I got an Amazon Fire Tablet, Galaxy Fraulein Yuna (in a white VHS!), A Juicer, and a microphone coming in the mail. I also went to see Spirited Away when that was in Theaters as an early gift. The haul was pretty great. I've always wanted a juicer so I was psyched with that one, and Spirited Away was easily the most godly theater experience I've ever had. Haven't seen Yuna yet, but it looks like a cool OVA series with some bad ass anime girls in it. The Snowball microphone was probably one of the best. Even though it isn't here yet it allows me to get into far more high quality content.

What the Hell is this series any way, Logan?
I just wanna practice my writing through minimalist opinion pieces about whatever is going going. I wanna up date all you lovely folks on DeviantArt what content I've put out (I have so many accounts at this point i don't blame you for not keeping up). I also wanna get into little diatribes about stuff I've been doing or watching that aren't enough for a blog or video but too much for a tweet. You'll be updated on most things here with these Journals. 

A Whole Playlist of Everything on YouTube I Did
Instead of me linking everything I did this month and giving it catchy, exclusive descriptions (only my patrons get that treatment ;) ) I decided to just link a whole playlist containing anything I did this month and before. I've since privatized the majority of my old content so this is the only way to get that stuff if you're interested. I'll update the playlist whenever I make something or guest star on a show.  www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

My Patreon
As a freeloader who desperately needs money by way of screwing over his fans, I've finally a "proper" patreon. There's an exclusive blog post on there right now that was too bloody for Deviant Art (or anywhere). Pretty funny stuff just very offensive. I need money to uhh survive whenever i get out my parents house, and I wanna make a living off my YouTube videos (someday). Patreon helps me reach those goals, and it's completely optional. Hopefully, I will one day gain a passionate enough viewer base to become a professional shill. Watch my vlog on it if you want my stance on the site. www.patreon.com/loganromkey

The Urge To Work Constantly
Lately, as a newfound Anime guru I've been working on videos for that very subject. Through passion my passion for writing (as bad as I may be as demonstrated here) has only grown stronger. With the posting of two new vlogs yesterday and the inspiration by several creators "the feels" are strong. I've been working on a few scripts, and I'm VERY excited where it will go. I just wanna keep working and working and working until I become THE BEST.

Perfection Isn't Real
I talked about this in that post that's now gone, but being perfect is a goal you will never reach. The reason why I became such a sad sap at times was because I tried so hard to reach a vision that was impossible to capture. Instead of chasing impossible odds and punishing myself for not reaching them, I should be having fun and embracing the fact I got something done. The more prolific I am the more happy, the more happy the more work that gets done, and the more work that gets done the more practice I get in. All of that in something that's fun... making me happy. While I may be depressed now that post is gone forever, it's message remains true. You gotta keep the grind from grinding you. Effort is important and you're gonna wanna punch a wall sometimes. It's an emotional elevator of loving the process and feeling terrible in the work. Chasing perfection only adds unnecessary stress.

The Life This Month... or week
All I've been doing is working towards my goals. Gotta become a successful YouTuber then be ahead of the game in that. After that success, animation. After that success? Gonna finally learn guitar through all of this. All I care about as of right now is pursuing creativity and my passions. There's School too... I guess, but that's not helping me at all. I just wanna get that done as soon as possible. Work, work, work.

So yeah that was a rather boring pointless post I hope you lay awake tonight knowing you wasted your time on me when you're slowing dying every day.

I only recently started Deviant Art with the intention of EVENTUALLY posting my Art. Also to follow Dan-Zigg aka Dee Zee Dog. So many of my favorite creators on YouTube also have DA accounts. I'm kind of a weirdo when it comes to following every social media a creator has. I gotta see the whole story. I want to be intrinsic within the narrative of their work. New weird ass Journal post with no point? My body is ready!  

It's also a new space. I can put more random things here knowing no one will see them. That's a good feeling. I love publishing things in weird places. That's why I love having multiple accounts for multiple things. Graveyard shift for vlogs, bandcamp for music, wordpress for written stuff that's not good enough for video, and DeviantArt for drawings. There's a certain catharsis when posting a new thing online even when no one sees it. In fact, one of the best feelings i can have is making something solely for myself. All these accounts help me relish the idea of me being prolific. So much stuff in so many different places is my thing. It's fun! It's as if you're on an exploration to find everything I've made which I fucking love.

So how do these Journal Entries play a factor? In essence, this is a place to post whatever the fuck I want. If there's some weird esoteric essay I make that no one will understand DA will get it or if there's something so bad it can't be published anywhere DA gets it. I plan to start up written series exclusively for DA. Maybe a blog series where I talk about my more inner, personal thoughts. I like having sub sections within my own narrative. Multiple accounts for multiple purposes. Deviant Art is no different. I wouldn't start a new show on a new channel if it was just more of the same. There needs to be a nice level pf nuance to it.

For those of you who have found my Deviant Art I hope this leads you to a better understanding of what it's for. Hopefully, when I have more time and have put in enough hours I'll finally have a presentable drawing. Unlike writing I won't just publish everything. I have thousands upon thousands of drawings never to see the light of day. I'll get there eventually. 
I did a vlog on my graveyard shift YouTube channel; explaining why I no longer draw. That reluctance and general distaste for the act of drawing is why I don't update this account much. If I'm not enjoying the process and I don't have any goals or ambitions for my Art then there's no reason for me to be making it. It's just taking up time when I could be doing something I care about. So I hope this clears up why this account isn't being used. I might put random bullshit on here from time to time that has no real place anywhere else, but apart from that I doubt you'll be seeing me. Maybe I'll start drawing again when I'm older and actually upload it, idk.
