Very old and silly pic of early Julie... who honestly has not changed much in the 10+ years since I doodled this...

Pinned post

It's been a while since I did an introduction post. (CW for length) 


I'm Julie. The cartoon Roo what goes SQVEAK!

I play a ton of videogames and pinball, and I've had a love of them since the 70s... like, arcades were my happy place when I was growing up, so it's kind of obsession-levels...

I also have an obsessive love of cartoons, and that includes a lot of the really corny ones... old HannaBarbara goofy characters, FleischerStudios rubber-limbed black and white 'toons... love that stuff.

I also love weird. Bizzare. Freaky... but still fun.

I draw as a hobby. Sometimes I draw things for others, but it's not my profession, I don't take commissions, and my output is very linked to my depression, which I have a lot of... so a lot of my doodles come from my emotional high points and hedonistic places.

I ramble a lot about introspection and observation. I talk through my depressions, repressions, and agressions. Sometimes it's theraputic... sometimes it's spirally.

I draw naughty things... cartoony weird things... alt-gender things... inflation things... chompy Pac things... furry things... video game character things... anything I doodle like that is behind content warnings, and unless I'm following you, it won't show up in your timeline.

If that's an issue, I get that, but I'm definitely a weirdo. This is who I am and what I do, so it's what I'm gonna keep doing.

Do you have gender?

It's ok. Many of us either do or did at one time. It's a somewhat common thing, really.

Did you know that you do not need to keep your current gender if it's not working well for you?

You can have more gender... less gender... no gender... all the...

... well, no, you can't have all the gender. I mean, save some gender for others that may want some...

Point is, you get to choose how much and what type(s) of gender you want, and you get to choose how you want to express it.

Yes! You do!! Yes, you!!!

... because the club vampires are judging me... and I know it...

... which means, I need to design more clothes that I want to wear.

Me... fucking get to work!

Show thread

I need, NEED, more goth-club clothes... all my old ones I am far too pudgy for, now... HotTopic caters to the thin-freak, not the plus!-sized one.

I need to remedy this.

The cheat, BTW, is to not fire at all on the first stage until all the aliens are in formation, and then destroy all but the leftmost two bee aliens (bottom and next up row), and let them continue to fall (dodge them both) in their drop attack pattern until they both stop firing (roughly 5 minutes).

After that, the byte that controls the number of shots fired, per round, goes over it's 255 limit, and breaks to the point that no firing will happen for the remainder of the game.

Ships can still be captured, and the score will break at 1,000,000, so if you want to put in your initials, you have to stop short to allow for the points you will earn at death.

This only works on older arcade chipsets. I have not gotten it to work on any emulator.

Show thread

I'll call this a good night... got the no-fire cheat to work on a Galaga arcade machine (right chipset for it to force the stack overflow to make the aliens stop firing for the entire game), and got 999,880 points on it... cheating, sure, but it resolved a lifetime frustration with getting the high score on that machine (2 arcade owners in this area knew of this exploit for years, and their initials were on EVERY machine in SE Wisconsin).

I'm now very happy!

The cards had no heart to believe in, tonight... absolutely nothing on two consecutive A-5 off-suit hands... and those were my best pockets.

Ah well... drowning my loss in techno, now!

Wait... we're playing poker, tonight?

(Yeah. Raccoon is to sore to do boat, and needs rest...)

Well, crud... I'm not dressed for poker!

(You're fine... you don't need to dress for poker, Julie)

But I made the Minnie-Pearl hat with tea bags and poker chips and everything!!!

(No, you made nachos, put tea bags in them, and then tried to pour the plate on your head... that is not the same thing)


I am not capable of type-talking in all lowercase letters.

... I am old, and it hurts my finger-brains.

Sloshes home from the bar...

... sloshes in the shower...

... sloshes in the basement to do some laundry...

... sloshes as shi unloads the car...

... lotta sloshin'...

Today's show very much made up for the last two poor shows... we still are a bit behind what we had initially hoped for these two months, but this is viable for Raccoon to pursue this full time, if that's how she decides to go.

... not sure if my back can handle it, though... these shows take a lot out of me, and eat up all of my work vacation time, and she may need to hire out for some of the shows... I need rest.

Show done, Julie's spent, very home, possibly bar for food and sloshy!

Ooooooooh... Julie is sooooo sore in the lower back...

Show today was very busy, and we ran out of a number of outfit sizes, but it's over in about 20 min... then tear down... then food and home and rest...

Dark chocolate chai was a mistake. My blood pressure spiked pretty hard. Looks like I have to stop having that now, too... which, I mean, fair. It was very good, but also VERY strong.

When I can feel and hear my blood pressure high-pitch shrieking in my ears with every pulse, and my neck and arms are tingling tight... that is not a pleasant sensation.

Show is set up for tomorrow.

Already sold one cremation tag (unused).

Food acqvired.

Dark chocolate chai acqvired.

I get to have full rest and relax for the rest of the day!


Just met Billy Graziadei from Biohazard, at lunch in Milwaukee.

There is a metalfest in Milwaukee happening this weekend, and we stopped at a random place for lunch after setup, and he came up to us asking if we were in town for the show, because we look the part regularly... and he may stop at our spoop show, tomorrow!

So... I'm... just a little excited and vibrating, right now!

Raccoon is home, and Raccoon is safe.

Still angry and hurt over Monday's violation, but home and safe, and that is what is important.

I have, once again, listened far too much to the news while at work, today, and it has, once again, affected my mood...

... I am not learning my lesson...

I am home, and I am ANGRY. (venting, cops, violations, no injuries beyond emotional and psychological) 

I am home, and I am ANGRY.

Just got done with a 45 minute phone conversation with Raccoon, who drove to Detroit by herself this morning to see her mom, because she was somehow profiled by the cops there, pulled over with 3 cruisers, was searched, had the car and all her belongings torn apart and tossed all over, had drug dogs, and was essentially violated for having done nothing beyond having the cruise control set at 3mph over the limit.

I don't know if they confiscated her insulin pen. I don't know if they confiscated her testing kit. I don't know if they confiscated any of her other meds. I don't know if they broke anything. I don't have a single bloody clue why any of this happened, and neither does she.

... I mean, beyond ACAB.

I know she's safe at her mom's. I know the car is driveable. I know she's upset for DAMN good reasons, and I can't be there to hold her, right now. I am VERY angry, and venting, because that's all I can do, at the moment.

They did not give her a ticket or citation. She did not get their names or numbers because they did not give them. There is no incident report that she'd have access to, at the moment.
Just a bunch of thugs 'protecting and serving' by threats and abuse...

... and the cold reality that, in the world we are living in, if she wasn't white, this could have easily been far more devastating with no further reason needed, despite having done nothing wrong other than existing.

... and I am angry.

((Also, I walked to and from the bar. It's ok to slosh-walk))
