   Giving my Journal a bit of an update again.  While I've been quite active in maintaining and updating my DA galleries, I haven't really used the journal function here since I started putting stuff up on  There, you'll find most of my entries on the Yusaku Jon 3's Digital Sketchbook.

   The DA journals used to feature random thoughts every month or so, depending on the mood I was in or what subject I wanted to share with watchers.  Though I could now basically do that on Tumblr at Yusaku Jon 3's Random Thoughts, it hasn't been very active since the main sketchbook account is in use.  However, the text blog may be used every now and again for non-art related subjects.
   Which brings us to PC gaming, which I still do quite a lot of.  Yusaku Jon 3's Gaming Blog on Tumblr is actively being used for that, where I'll post the occasional commentary regarding my favorite games and current activities within those.

   This journal entry will now only be edited to bring it up to date with current moods and offline activities.
  • Listening to: Classic and progressive rock collections
  • Reading: My history book collection and a few comics
  • Watching: YouTube videos, NASCAR and NFL football
  • Playing: Civilization 5, Bejeweled 3
  • Eating: Kind'a lapsed back into the old ice cream habit
  • Drinking: Low-cal coffee, soft drinks and lemonade

I like your drawing from the early 90s. I remember the good times of anime back then. I hope you still keep liking anime from back then. I have fond memories of Robotech and Gundam.

Also, do you listen to techno or acid music in the early 90s? and do you remember House Frau (techno channel in 94'-96') or the love parade?

I'm older, so I kind of ignored most music until the grunge/alt-rock sounds started surfacing in the mid-90s.  Prior to that, I was kind of an odd kid who'd be listening to '60s folk-rock and psychedelic, and '70s progressive rock and classic rock while the other kids were into John Cougar Mellencamp, hair metal and New Wave techno-pop.

As for the anime, I've found a couple of streaming video sites which run the stuff I liked (classic '80s anime and a few more recent series), so I'm actually getting to see stuff I missed that was catching my eye back then.

Well Techno and acid surfaced in the 80s not the mid 90s. I remember the 80s very well and it became extremely popular in 1988. This is in European communities not sure if the US experienced the same thing. In 88, techno pop was no longer popular in Europe, it was acid music.

In my part of the States, we called it "New Wave", but most of the kids in my school (I graduated in 1986) were kind of behind the times, so it was Van Halen and Iron Maiden on top of classic Led Zeppelin.  "Stairway to Heaven" was still something of an anthem amongst them.  By 1988, I became aware of Rap and some of the remaining Techno that was still making rounds Stateside.  It seems that the US always  tends to move on its own beat.

Well, I'm not that active. It might also be that I came late to the show.
My tendency is to produce in spurts these days, and since I don't "get
out" in the social media aspect of things very often, it's possible that
I don't receive much attention unless I respond to a post on a forum,
have one of my pieces submitted to a group gallery, or fave and make
a comment on someone else's deviation.
