I am a phoenix…

Posted in site news/maintenance on March 7, 2014 by reccaphoenix

So, it’s time for some reinvention and revision.  I am a phoenix, after all, and this is what we do.

I’m cleaning up to remove some IP that does not belong to me or is not properly credited.  I am at the same time thinking of turning this blog into something else or giving it more focus.  If you see posts or images missing, this is the reason.

I am still not likely to update this blog frequently…or at all…but who knows what the future may bring.

When I started this blog and Latin Baby, I had a lot of time, few friends, and the wide-eyed ambition of a young college student with too many creative hobbies and not much focus.  Becoming an adult and going to professional school has taken away a lot of free time, but also focused it onto the things that I did not have when I was younger: love, friends, a career path, and my health and fitness.  I noticed that I rarely write in my diary anymore either.  I think that the real world has largely come to fill the space that my diary and web activity used to, and that’s a good thing.I could not have imagined that I would end up in a non-creative, non-artistic field, but here I am, for better or worse.  Also, my copy of Photoshop stopped working and I have not blown the $70 to get a new one.  So drawing doesn’t happen much anymore.

To all who love(d) this blog, I thank you so much.  I hope that I have contributed something to your life, however small.  Who knows what the future may bring, and I may post again someday.  Keep me in your hearts and your RSS feed…just in case.

Much love,

Your humble narrator,

R. Phoenix

P.S. I totally just found out that there is a real company called “Reccasoft” now so there goes my ideal game company name if I ever decided to make video games.  LOL.

John Lennon Manga Ch. 2 UP!

Posted in site news/maintenance with tags , , on June 13, 2010 by reccaphoenix

John has a pretty awesome mum...

Hey, everybody!

After a long pause in translation activities, Chapter 2 of the Astro Boy John Lennon manga is up and running, fully translated for your viewing pleasure.

This chapter covers John’s life from elementary to middle school, and includes the epic moment where he discovers the magic of ROCK N’ ROLL for himself, courtesy of Elvis and pirate radio.

Enjoy!  Here’s the link.

Some silly comments:

-This artist really makes some people look much better than they did in real life (especially John and Yoko during their hippie period….)

-John has a pretty cool mum.

Update from beyond the grave circumstances of being busy

Posted in cinema, merchandise, site news/maintenance on December 30, 2009 by reccaphoenix

Hullo everyone, Recca Phoenix here again.  Gee, this year has been busy.  I’ve had almost no time [or interesting things with which] to update this blog, and Latin Baby is suffering even more.  But I have some exciting news.

1. I finished another film.  A real one.  An experimental film.

2. Said film is to be shown at a prestigious film archive as part of a student film show.  I won something and I feel like a legitimate artist now.  I cried when I heard the news, I was so happy.  Said film may or may not be posted online somewhere for your viewing pleasure in the future.

3. I have a twitter account now.  Allow me to provide the appropriate classic rock quote: “and I’m waiting for you to follow me” (-The Who, “I’m Free”, Tommy)

4. My main store should receive an update sooner or later.  The other stores are also overdue for updates….

An issue with the images….

Posted in site news/maintenance on October 21, 2009 by reccaphoenix

Hey, everyone…

You may have noticed that some images haven’t been loading recently, instead just displaying a villagephotos “image not found” thingie.  This is because of a bandwidth issue that I will definitely resolve once my usage resets next month by uploading everything to a different website for hosting.

The changes will be taking place ASAP.

Halloween Report and New Theme Banners

Posted in artwork, cinema, clockwork orange, rants, site news/maintenance on October 31, 2007 by reccaphoenix

The actual run of my much-discussed Clockwork Orange costume went fairly well.

But I digress…  now that Halloween is over  , I needed a new theme header. So I made a winter one of me wearing my favorite crochet project, my kitty-ears hat.

Yes, I like winter because it means legwarmers/scarves/crocheted things/hats season, all of which are some of my favorite clothing items. Look forward to an upcoming December header for everyone’s favorite invented winter non-religious holiday, 47 RONIN DAY.

New Site “Theme” (Header) for Halloween.

reccaspriteIf you take a look, I’m starting a new theme-thingie: seasonal headers. And the first one, in honor of HALLOWEEN, one of my favorite holidays….Recca in her Clockwork Orange costume (click for full size)

Yes, I do own a bowler hat. Yes, I MAY ACTUALLY do that for Halloween this year….except it’s sort of a girl-Alex deal because my white suit has a skirt with it (not pants….white pants irritate me >: P ) But did you know this?

Members of The Rolling Stones proposed filming their adaptation, with themselves as the ultraviolent gang, before Kubrick acquired the project. Other, unrealised versions supposedly contained miniskirted girls or old people as the gang.

(from Wikipedia)

How about that? Oh, but the Stones would make such an unintimidating gang…..

Yeah. All I have left to buy is the fake eyelash and a tolchoking cane of some kind.
