Miranda Karla Hall
Artist | Varied
United States
Hi! I'm Mira K. Hall -- that's pronounced MAI-rah and not Mee-rah for clarifications. I was also formerly known as Lady Rumplestiltskin, AKA Rumple-chan, which was a nickname my mom gave me when I was in high school as a compliment to my art skills of "turning straw into gold".

I live in San Diego, California, and I've graduated with an Associate's Degree in Fine Arts under the 2-Dimentional emphasis since Spring 2011. I'm still attending at the community colleges as a part-time student instead of full-time.

I currently live with my sister, echochan (visit her page!), in an apartment we've dubbed "Eleventy-One" or "The Hobbit Hole" due to our unit being number 111 :giggle: Even though we're living on our own and Sis has a job, we still get financial support from our mother, MamaLucia (visit her, too!). 'Til then, just call me a "Parasite Child" ^^;

I Feel Old...

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 12:48 PM

Rest in Peace, Mick...

Just heard on the radio this mornin' that the child actor turned short, cute balding actor seen in various, countless films Mickey Rooney passed away.  It was bound to happen, he was so freakin' old.  However, now *I* feel old, since I've involuntarily seen some of his stuff through Dad and heard some of his voice work elsewhere (Fox and Hound, Care Bears, etc).  Even though he lived a good, full life and would've turned a century old seven years from now, it's kind of a great loss to me, since he was some of the few classic veterans of old Hollywood that I felt I had any ties with the ancient past of said old classic Hollywood movie-dom and such (mainly through Disney and Looney Tunes cartoon shorts shown on TV during the 80s and 90s).  It's like I practically grew up with him, even if he wasn't that significant to me in contrast to others I've idled.

I'm just dreading the day when June Forray, John Cleese or Bill Cosby will follow suit, then I'll feel REALLY old :depressed: if not just as understandably depressed as the Harold Ramis fans are right now (I feel for ya, guys :cling:)

The Slughorn Complex

I decided to use my blood money (medical guinea pig research payment, that is) to buy some new Copic colors I haven't gotten yet before (haven't been up-to-date on that for almost a decade, I think) so I can complete my 358 color chart I printed from the website.  I guess I didn't really need them, since I did pretty damn well with the other 288 Sketch markers for this long, but I have this... thing... that I can't help but call it a Slughorn complex: he likes to collect photos and momentums of famous witched and wizards he's ever met or taught at Hogwarts, while I like to collect Copic Sketch markers whether I intend to use the color a lot or not ^^;  In the short-run, I've found myself deciding to re-do my personal color swatches as well, since my old ones probably still has faint traces of the Curse of NitWit :X and I needed to do SOMETHING constructive while I was splitting up Cardamar mixes into separate tracks and testing them for perfect seemlessness.  Plus, I kind of miss the Copic marker smell; has a nice, pleasant smell that Prismacolor never had for me; it could be good aromatherapy if done right and enough, but I'm speculating on a pipe dream, I feel.  Thoughts? :?

Ukraine As the New Berlin?

I haven't been up to date with the news, save today since I wanted to listen to SOMETHING while I was driving home from dropping off Sis at work (I needed the car for something I had to do that was time-sensitive), but I'm dreading that Ukraine is gonna be split up like Berlin after World War II, giving communism a bad name all over again.  (In theory, it seems to work as a form of government, provided that certain elements are also coincide with the system, like small population, trustworthy citizens, etc., and Russia is neither of those, though neither is Cuba in the trustworthy dept., but it seems to work perfectly well over there).  I was still a blissfully stupid kid at the time the Berlin Wall was torn down in '89, so I couldn't imagine the breath of fresh air the Berliners took after that historic event.  But I bet I can imagine how the Ukrainians would suffer if they were to split between democracy and Russian communism.  This greatly concerns me because Ukraine happens to be the birthplace of many Slavic-based folklore I'm wishing to study for some of my story ideas, since Norse, Egyptian, Japanese and other mythologies have been done to death, and there's barely a scratch in the Slavic folklore in video games or other pop-media.  It was either almost destroyed from human history or severely re-written under various dictatorial-like reigns in Russia along with the plague of Catholicism and Stalinism.

I'm worried because I had hoped to take a tour of some of the Slavic countries for study and research their cultural and environmental details to make my stories more organic if not somewhat accurate.  If the civil war and the likelihood of the USSR resurrecting from the dead continues, soon all of Eurpoe will be added to the no-fly-zone, us 'Mericans will be so scared shitless in starting World War III just by mentioning the sacrilegious idea to the cavemen politics that all people deserve to have human rights.  And after seeing Walter Mitty's wild goose-chase to Nepal and Afghanistan (Ben Stiller's interpretation), just a friendly visit to Ukraine to meet a scholar and potential friend would mean my incarceration for the rest of my natural life on my own homeland soil.

Still, even with all of my personal fear-mongering pessimism, I have NO IDEA what is going on right now in Ukraine or Russia without wasting my time and sanity keeping up to date with current events only to later seek out the comforts of a half-gallon Häagen-Dazs.  So I'm wondering if anyone else out there knows what's been happening there lately, I'd be grateful.  Even a link to contributing to a cause to help the Ukrainians would probably make me feel at ease that something good will happen eventually...
