    This has been something I always used to do and now want to get back into the habit of. I tell bad jokes so people can laugh. Whether you laugh at the joke, or me for how bad my jokes are is irrelevant as long as you can at least snicker(TM). Did you hear about the arrogant trumpet player who always wins music awards? He's always tooting his own horn.

    Episode 9 of Criminal Idol ~~~~~~Lyrics~~~~~~ [Detective] Hareka came to me in private, looking a little uneasy. She began talking about their rise to fame. It was their first show, a charity gig. While they were there, a man named Nori introduced himself to them. [Nori] *clear throat* Hello hello. So you want to know how to get from the bottom to the top. Well, listen up. Here we go. Welcome to the show. By the way - just thought you should know Everything's rigged. Oh oh~ Everything's rigged. But don't you give up hope. 'Cause I believe that you and me if we work together we can change things. This whole idol industry is just for gambling Isn't this a crime against humanity? Take a look. Open up your eyes and see how beautiful this world was made to be. Now, take a look, cast your gaze upon this world in danger how vulnerable it is to human dreams. Some people dream. They dream evil, darling. Baby, they're bad news bad news. They're bad news. Some people dream and seem satisfied but they're not, it's just bad news. Shoot for the sky. I-I-I-I'm with ya 'cause you're trouble for bad news: bad news for bad news. People like you dream dreams that make the world shine bright. Yeeaah~ I've been working on the inside and I've worked with those who run the show, so take this paper note. I've secured your group a spot to perform. And here's the results for when you go. You'll find the scores of each group to be just as I wrote. Shh~ I know that it's all unbelievable but Shh~ stay calm and be quiet. Since, now, you've confirmed the scores to be just as I wrote I hope you'll help me secretly fight it. 'Cause - Take a look. Open up your eyes and see how beautiful this world was made to be. Now, take a look, cast your gaze upon this world in danger how vulnerable it is to human dreams. Some people dream. They dream evil, darling. Baby, they're bad news bad news. They're bad news.

People like you dream dreams that make the world shine bright. [Hareka] (as spoken by Detective) Do you mean it was rigged from the start? She said. Do you think this will ruin my heart? No. I don't need some stranger telling me what my score is. I don't need some vain inflation of dopamine from them. Isn't it the same even if it's all rigged in the end? 'Cause their scores will never change who I am and what I've put in. I don't need some stranger telling me what my score is. I don't need some vain inflation of dopamine from them.

    Friends, While I am not the wisest of people I do believe that we have a wonderful group of people in this community. A group that could be used to create something fantastic. I'm not quite sure what that is yet, but I think we should begin operation Black Static. Our mission, to influence the lives of those around us for good, by any means necessary. I am not certain what this may take the form of, but that's where everyone comes in. What can we do or create to help other people? So let us know, do you need help with something? Is it something the community can help you out with? This is where you seek help and offer your help to others when you are able. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, but sometimes the thing that takes the most strength is reaching out to others for help. This could be as simple as help with homework, or to review an essay, proofread a resume. (Those are things I can do.) But with a community this large I'm sure we can find people who can help you with art, to learn to play an instrument, start a business, learn a language, the sky is the limit here. So, if you want help, or need someone to talk to, or just want something to do. This is where we start. Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    WOW!! This is amazing stuff, @Einjiru Kurosaki!!! I'm super impressed. As i was looking at them, I am reminded of a few different animation studios. You have a great talent and a great style. The fact that it only took you 1-2 hours for each character shows a lot for how much time you've put into your talent as an artist. I hope you stick around and keep posting stuff for us all to enjoy!

    Dear Friends, I have spent the last 24ish hours reviewing, revisiting, re-listening to all of your entries for this contest. They have all be so fantastic to see as a part of this page and as I see the people who participated. I think you can learn a lot about people from the art that they share and the story they tell. I'm hesitant to do this because I'm afraid if I start with who wins then everyone will leave, but I don't want to give people false hope by starting with everyone who's work I admired, but because I want everyone to be encouraged and to encourage you to collaborate with your other artists on something amazing. To learn and to grow together. I'm going to start with the people whose stuff I enjoyed, but wasn't able to pick because I only game myself three options and I'm broke. First, @kirby157, whose works, don't stand out for extraordinary color, but are instead a view of life perceived. That they are amazing works of creativity, but also just an observation of the prompt itself, from whales to chickens to cubes. So thank you for sharing your wonderful works of art. @Jahotsafits reminded me of the simpler times when drawing was something you could do anywhere with a simple lined notebook and some pencils, pens, and crayons. I appreciate the unique style too. Definitely rocking the spooky Halloween theme. @Viv your detail to your pictures and the perspective you took on both of them were quite interesting, they we're definitely in the spooky category and the time that you must have put into such works is impressive. @Aqilless thanks for giving it a shot with your Kitsune? Person. I didn't realize Cheetos were your thing, but your art definitely matches the prompt and I think it's a really good caricature. It's like one of those drawings you used to be able to cut out and play with and make scenes out of @Kaela MeliusMel and you were worried about what you could post. And then you post a wonderful drawing of a the wizardess? Witch? Sorry bad with words. Luna. I think it was well done and fits really well with all of Inktober keep up the good work. @annaports you attempted quite a feat covering ADVENTURER. And I'm glad you gave it a try at 6 minutes of StaticP voice fluctuations finishing it is a monumental undertaking in itself. And I encourage you to work on it more if you decide. Because as I'm sure you found it takes a lot of practice. And you can make something amazing. @Toasty your voice is incredible. Especially considering all of your entries were exclusive you and not other audio. And from a phone no less. I was supper impressed with your time and dedication to hit so many of those prompts. I encourage you to keep making covers and practicing. @Hailey Hepworth While I'm not sure you considered your cover an entry, but if waving through the window was, it was a great cover, even with limited hardware to do it. So thank you for sharing and we hope to hear more. @Zion Mesa My friend your lyrics are amazing and truely I hope you find a beat to match them or perhaps someone here who can help you to make that music come to life. The words are definitely of you I can not express how amazed I am at the growth and emotion you show in your writing. Which leaves us with the three winners as it were. @Monkerstar had a fantastic cover of Detective Detective. And I mean if you haven't already you should listen to it. I have it posted below. He spent a lot of time working on it. And he even worked with I'm guessing a family member To get the mix right. Which I really hope is something that we all try to do here. To work together to create something amazing. I was impressed because it has all of the play of the original but without the sharpness, which I thought was better with your voice. Anyway props to you! Jonno_Taylor_-__Detective_Detective_-_English_English_cover @Bre the Kitty I am not an artist, I never have been and never will be, but for some reason this picture was the one that really got me. I think it's cause it reminds me of the things we had to color in school, but you drew it yourself. And it fully captures the prompt of the day as precious. (I want to preface this by saying I judged based on art and the ability it had to convey the emotion of the prompt) I think one of the most important things about your post wasn't actually in the art itself. I find that one of the things that encouraged me the most is that you opened up our contest. That the first piece of art, that the first entry wasn't anything other that a precious little cat in a pumpkin. And that I find to be amazing on a whole different level aside from this contest. So feast your eyes on this precious little gem. and that leaves @Matlan, dear friend your writing was fantastic, fo a time I couldn't decide if I should toss it because it didn't stick to one prompt or love it because it hit all of them. And after deliberation I decided you that I never said you couldn't. I thank you for your encouraging words and I hope others find strength through your writing. You told a story with the prompts but the great thing was it's your story. And I will copy his post to this thread. For everyone, thank you for participating. This was a great experience for me and I hope you enjoyed it as well. But please don't let it stop here. @Kaela MeliusMel shared a great drawing with me just last night. And I'm going to move the art to an open thread so that people can comment and collaborate. Thank you to everyone you guys are amazing and I can't wait to see what you do next. If you have questions or want my help with anything, let me know. I'm happy to help. I love you! P.S. please forgive me for any errors in this post or omissions. I've been writing this over the last 72 hours and on my phone as well. Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones

    Now on a topic that Joe literally knows nothing about. It's Inktober!!!!!! Which I guess is just a series of prompts for art, but which since I can't draw, I consider stories and pictures and music (I mean why not) applicable. If you have to put pen to paper to come up with a work. Go for it. And because I want people to try and what not. Let's sweeten the deal. Every day for the month of October submit an entry, here, or in the written area, or the music topic. And at the end of the month I'll pick my favorites from each category; art, writing, and music. I'll get the winners a month of Silver membership here on the website, which includes free downloads of all StaticP and CDVNL songs to-date, early access to music, as streaming content before the music hits full release, access to an exclusive chat (maybe, it's listed as coming soon), and lots of other stuff. Also, bragging rights. so anyway, hop to it friends. I can't wait for the wonderful things you will create. Keep being awesome. Also, before I forget, here are the prompts. You can back date for the one on the First, but going forward try to have them done the day that is listed

    Sooo... I’ve never done a cover before. If it’s bad I apologize, I haven’t been very motivated recently so I was kind of really lazy with my voice, vocal technique, etc. Also, my voice is quite a bit dead so yeah. I also apologize for parts where it might be hard to hear my voice, you must realize this was all done on my phone because that’s all I had. Anyways, let me know what you think! My_Song_2.m4a

    So I can't draw well enough to hold a candle to some of these people. But that's because I'm a lyricist not a visual mediums artist, I guess. So day six drooling. I wrote half a song about it. Hope you like it. This is hard, writing about these random topics. The smell of dreams just beyond my reach It drives me crazy want to be Oh so many things I think just maybe wanna scream Because all my fears Hit almost daily But it's all so tantalizing And I know that's why I'm stay be Cause I'll change the world If I only get a shot I keep on looking at the future And I give it all I got Can't really tell you what it is But I can tell you what's it not I chase the rainbow for the colors I'm not looking for a pot I don't have much money or a hype boy I'm just the wacky black teen With the high voice It might be easier to fly boy Like why try but I just want to live a life that I can die for If it's not to your satisfaction That's too bad then I wish you found it more attractive This is my passion I remember back when I used to patronize People till I realized It's a waste of time that part of me's A has been I got a lot of people always tryna fool me While others say I'm Hoping on a fools dream I don't listen only focusing on two things Where I am right now and where I could be Drooling cuz I'm running for a dream I can taste it put a side Every unimportant thing I'm a make it Find myself often wondering What they'll say when I'm done with my cooking I'ma give you all a plate friends

    @slightlyaboveaveragejoe @Tef_Baanow @Princess_Yellow @HighlyCorrosive I'm wondering if you would like a chibi static with flowing hair, majestic sparkles, and a thumbs up for approval ... as a kind of combination of the three? I'm also wondering, though... I wish we could make more because i feel like if there's a chibi Static... there needs to be a chibi Jesse fro... since he kinda runs the show. @kirby157 actually, yes please. I'd love a chibi princess. Also... meow

    Dear Friends; This fairly similar to other post on being overwhelmed, but lets go from an optimistic/positive side. If you've ever tried to complete a puzzle, especially a very complex one. You have to realize one important thing, the objective is a long term goal. You don't start close to the goal and in fact everything you have is in pieces, and if you've ever tried to complete a puzzle without having the picture to go off of you realize just how hard it can feel to put together something with no plan. That's a lot like how life can go. You have a bunch of pieces and you aren't quite sure where they fit. You have skills, but you don't know where they go. You have talents but you don't see what they're for. The thing is those talents and skills are important they are a part of you and will make a great difference in both your life and the life of others. In the same way when you are making a puzzle you don't know where each individual piece fits by only looking at the piece and sometimes you have to try a few places before you find out where it actually fits. But you know what, that's the exciting part about life and puzzle making. Puzzling would be boring if you knew where everything fit right at the beginning. Now, to you negative folks who are thinking "That's all well and good but I don't have any pieces, any skills or talents." I say to you "lies and deceit good sir/madam." Perhaps, have forgotten some pieces back in the box, since you haven't pulled this puzzle out in a while. Or perhaps your pieces are upside down. In the same way there are skills that we don't know about, that we haven't found out yet. Or perhaps you need to be reminded of those skills. But they are indeed there. You just have to pull out the box and start working on something. You see puzzles that are already completed are called pictures. Its why you can look back on your life and see "the bigger picture." And I assure you that once you complete your picture you're going to find that you had a lot of talents, and they fit into all the right places, but it sure didn't see like it at the time. So friends, don't give up on that goal you're pursuing. Don't stop trying to be the best you there is. You are on your way and it is going to be something grand. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    Dear Friend, Yes you there looking at this screen. You are an incredibly strong person. You're strength is so great that many don't have the same strength as you. For currently, right now, at this very instant, you are alive! The pulse that you have and the breath in your lungs itself is a miraculous thing. It means you can do some much more than those who do not draw breath. If you think that you aren't strong, well you are wrong. Take for example the energy that you use. Studies have shown that just for existing, in any given day your body will burn roughly 1800 calories. Just for existing! That's more energy that it takes to run four 5km races. You do that. You do it everyday. So if you think that you can't do something, just remember you are already doing something much more strenuous just by existing. Whatever you have planned ahead is relatively simple. You are ready for it. You can take the world on and those friends of yours, they're pretty strong too. So take heart you slayer of dragons, you player of games, you musician, you office worker, you engineer, you artist, you student. YOU... are stronger than you think. You can do this. I believe in you. A Slightly Above Average Joe

    It had been a while since I listened to "A Message To Pop Culture" and I had forgot how awesome it was! It really does have a great message to it- especially nowadays, it's more prevalent than ever for people to think for themselves, and not be controlled or influenced by the world that tries to manipulate them. What a great message to put into a song! Keep up the good work, Joe!

    I wish I could say my first song here would be a Static-P song. but with the amazingness of others covers. I can't find something I will be satisfied with. It's a bit because they mean so much to me that I want to do them the justice I don't think I can. But maybe I can get there if I post something. As the common idiom goes, "songs are never perfect. there's always at least one wrong note in there." So, here's a most certainly not perfect song. It's just mostly me playing around with singing it. Yet this is the baby step I hope that will get me to actually release songs I try to sing. So without further written procrastination, here's my cover of Photograph.

    Aww, thank you so much! You guys really are the best! The thing is, my work style is complicated... Much like with my work, I don't know where to begin, so you may have to sift through my little rant to glean any kind of important info... I tend to work on my own, sometimes with a bit of help, but I always work infinitely slower than other people- i'm always the last person out of class, my assignments are incomplete or late, I just don't work well on other people's schedules.... I usually work on my computer at home at the dinner table, alone when I can, though my parents eventually come home later. As I said, I have ADHD, (Well, i think it's just ADD now, but still) So even with my meds, it can be hard for me to sit down and understand what I need to do next. I have honestly tried many different things, and I still have trouble sometimes. If it's something like math (which I honestly couldn't care less about (as it infuriates me to no end- one tiny mistake ruins ALL of your work) I have trouble finding the desire to actually sit down and do anything. And when i DO end up doing something, I find myself wanting to get up and leave to play video games rather quickly (when i'm at home, that is). I just feel like I don't work well, and I couldn't care less about how I work. I never know where to start, and it's all so confusing. I just don't think in the same way other people do, and it's frustrating. I see people sit down at a computer with little instruction, like "write a paper about your experience with a place" and i never know where to start, i get stuck, and frustrated, and it's just a cycle that's nigh impossible to break out of, but if i'm given free reign, and i'm passionate about the topic- like psychology- I can go for days on end, writing about things because it's interesting. I believe you've also seen this in my response to the "Can you guess the bomber?" thread- It's interesting, intriguing, fun, and a logical challenge for me, comparing scenarios and figuring out what makes the most sense. Because i'm passionate about Ryan's music, and the mystery feels so obvious, yet the evidence and circumstance is so contradictory. It's fun, and i'm curious, and I actively want to know more. I was able to sit there thinking about the evidence for a fair amount of time, all in one sitting, and make progress on the topic almost nonstop! I'm not sure, but my problem isn't exactly a desire to be lazy, or not work- It's that I just don't know how to get past these frustrating roadblocks in my way of completing things- my head fogs up and I have trouble thinking straight, and there's so much I might need to look at, or do, I don't know what would be useful and what wouldn't- I just can't work past problems very easily. If I don't understand one part, or something gets me stuck, I just can't get the rest of whatever it is... All i know is that when something is interesting, and I genuinely care about it, I can do incredibly well. If I don't care about it, no matter how much I tell myself the consequences of not working, or why it's necessary, I just don't know where to begin or how to work. I need exact instructions, and even then, I get bored and annoyed and eventually frustrated just doing the same boring thing i'm told to do. I hate being behind, and I feel like my grades in school aren't reflecting my abilities because of it. Sorry for the wall of text- This is how I think; picking out details and the like isn't my thing...

    Hey I don’t know how to start this so uh hi I’m Mat. I’m a college student currently majoring in journalism. I like poptarts, my girlfriend, and long walks on the beach. I love Static’s music (duh) and now that I’ve heard cdvnl, I think he needs to drop some more fire, as the kids these days say 👀 I love taking care of children and work in a daycare in my spare time. They’re all too precious for this world On a more serious note, I was diagnosed with PTSD when I was 12. It makes me have weird tendencies sometimes or I’ll get frightened by unusual things. That’s just who I am. There’s no ignoring or getting over it. Yeah, it can be annoying at times but because of it I’m more empathetic, understanding, and aware of others. So I guess what I’m getting at here is turn something you may see as ugly and use it to help people and build yourself. Don’t let it knock you down 💙 little bit about myself ✅ some inspiration ✅ my work here is done

    An Epic... about life being an adventure. Lyrics~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm an adventurer! The adventure calls our name. What will we do? Where will we go? Who will we become? Young child, go forth, find your place, he said, in this world full of danger and pain. Have heart, take courage, and dare to be brave Whether merchant or knight be your fate. A hero is someone who fights while afraid not knowing each step of the way. A hero is someone gives from their heart sacrificing in order to save. Somewhere there's a place both near and quite far where I am sure to belong. Somewhere in time I'll know where I'm called but where am I meant to be, right now? Will I find my way when I don't know who I am? Is this life like a gift to unwrap and behold? Will I find my peace? FIRE! FIRE! My village has fallen to waste. When I came from the fields 'twas naught but a blaze. My memories of this place: like a flower in bloom at the foot of a grave. And don't we all have days like these? And don't these things make the stories ring? Somewhere there's a place both near and quite far where I am sure to belong. Somewhere in time I'll know where I'm called but where am I meant to be, right now? Will I find my way in this land I barely know? Is this world like a gift to unwrap and behold? I must venture forth. Wonder, mystery, world yet unseen. What lies before me? Stories longing to be. Wonder what's out there waiting to teach me about me. Adventure calls me. It yearn for me to be part of this world- be part of this world as to change it forever 'cause I touched this land with my own two hands. Reshaped and will never be the same because I was made. because I was made. After the image of my own heart, unique to me alone, I have made and become a part of this world and what it holds. Each gift I have, including my life, is a gift for one and all. And though there is pain and strife, I gladly heed my call. The adventure calls our name. What will we do? Where will we go? Who will we become? (Will I find my way) Somewhere there's a place both near and quite far where I am sure to belong. Somewhere in time I'll know where I'm called but where am I meant to be, right now? Will I find my way? Though I ask I need not worry 'cause this life, yet untold, is a gift to behold; an adventure to behold.

    Try, try, try, try, try, try, FAIL!! Try, try, try, try, try, try, FAIL!! Sometimes that seems to be how it goes for us. We have something we want to do, or something we've been assigned to do, and we just cannot seem to get it right. Ugh! Frustration sets in, and if we're not careful, we can let that frustration turn into discouragement. If we sit there in discouragement long enough, we may just throw our hands up in the air and quit! "There! Forget all this junk... I'll give up... That'll show 'em." Somehow we got infected with the belief that if something is difficult, then we weren't meant to do it. If I don't have a perfect reverse side kick on my first day as a white belt, I must not be equipped to do martial arts. If I can't pick up a guitar and play like Buckethead or Yngwie Malmsteen before my first lesson, I better not buy a guitar or sign up for guitar classes. What a load of garbage. If you want to be something... Be it. If you want to do something... Do it. Henry C. Link said: "While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior" Don't be afraid of mistakes--they are the very things that take you where you want to go. Don't be afraid of being terrible at something the first 20 times you try it. Most things that we dream of doing are hard to learn. It's ok. Just keep at it, and you may just amaze yourself at where you will go!

    Indeed the requisite needs for establishing a solid grounds for any criminal investigation include three main components. Means, Motive, and Opportunity. The easily identifiable components are opportunity and motive. In regards to opportunity, the only characters with the opportunity, to commit this crime, based on the evidence that the bomb was planted in Star Blush's Baggage. Are the Star Blush Girls themselves, and any other character with access to their baggage prior to arrival on site. This probably being their teacher and any possible friends. In terms of Motive you would have to break it down by those character's who you think have the opportunity and what would compel them to light off a bomb on the competition day. Aoke: It seems unlikely that Aoke would have a motive, and provided that you believe her defense in episode 5 it would appear that she would be the most unlikely of the girls to commit the act. Bee: Also seems very unlikely, given that her aspirations are to help her friends, and preoccupation with the difficulties they are currently facing. It seems unlikely that she would be involved. However, if she thought the bombing would contribute to helping her friends, it is conceivable that she could conduct this attack. Hareka: Her goal to "Inspire the world is one of the few goals that doesn't directly conflict with the idea of bombing the idol competition. That being said with a goal of that it would seem unlikely that her actions would contribute to destruction. Additionally, Hareka is struggling internally with something that she wants to tell people, but can't (Speculation from Dream On) Keiko: Her goal is to be an Idol. So anything that would risk that would again seem unlikely. Kanesaki Hyudou: He's lazy, he doesn't want to do anything, and he's forced by his sister to be in charge of an idol group. How to not do anything? Blow up the idols. (See Detectives comment on whether or not the Star Blush Girls were the target.) Kariko: She wants to be a successful idol, Eliminating the veteran talent would make their success easier. Morime: She wants to help her friends, on the same thought as Bee, if she wasn't thinking properly she could consider the explosion to help one of her friends? Furuto: Wants to have lots of fun. Generic, but again, if her fun is gained through injuring people its motive enough Means: Truthfully this would be the hardest part to decide with the information we have available. Mainly who would have access to dynamite, could plant the bomb, and detonate it without anyone knowing. Without additional information this would undoubtedly lead one to conclude Kanesaki Hyudou, The Genius, as he would be the only one with seemingly enough knowledge to manufacture the nitroglycerin compound necessary to create the explosion. Other people with means, would be anyone with the ability to purchase or get their hands on Dynamite in the first place. (Again this would assume that our detective knows enough about explosive composition to correctly deduce the weapon used in the attack.) But again for this particular set of posts I am trying to post items that are more factual and less supposition.

    Have you ever been caught in the trap of comparing yourself to others? I would imagine every single one of us would say yes if we were honest with ourselves… The whole world seems to be set up in a way that almost forces us to do this. We’re trained through the media to think that we should look like supermodels, live in trendy homes and drive the newest car possible. They tell us that we'll be happy then. WRONG! The truth is, we are all individuals. Each of us has a unique life with unique relationships and circumstances. We have different sets of flaws and struggles to handle as well. The person who thinks they're better than someone else is just as misled as the person who thinks that they're worse. Each of us has infinite value and dignity, and no one can take it away. “There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Now, I certainly don't agree with all of the philosophies of Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, but I think this statement gives us a big key in how we look at our lives. The point is that each of us is having a one-of-a-kind experience on this planet. You simply cannot compare one life to another--doing so would be grossly unfair. Our job is simply to do the best we can with the life we’ve been given. It is a priceless gift, complete with joy, pain, beauty, love and a countless myriad of complications. Every single one of us has gone through hard times… They’re just different. When we see one another, rather than look with the torment of comparison, we should look upon each other with grace and understanding. With that, some of the deepest wounds can be healed.

    You only have the Admins to blame for this Pun-ishment. They let me on here. Anyway, did you hear about the kid who made friends with everyone at school by bringing soda? Yeah, he was pretty pop-ular.
