Hello and welcome to my blog. First of all I can tell you that there won't be a consistent theme throughout all my posts. Most of what I write is dependent on mood swings, current fictional crushes, what I had for breakfast that day, etc. What I can tell you is that this isn't my first blog, although I've contributed to others. I used to run a blog dedicated to horror films entitled Werewolves Beating a Dead Horse. It's still out there, although a bit neglected. Someday I might return to it.
Sooo...you might be asking yourself. Licentious Howler? Why that exactly? Well sit down a spell, pour yourself a cold glass of something good and let me tell ye the tale.
One morning around Christmas time, I woke up with a song in my head that I couldn't get rid of. After searching through the dusty file cabinets in my brain for half an hour I was finally able to figure it out. It was the traveling theme from Final Fantasy III on SNES. I messaged my brother that he had to bring the game to Christmas because I had to play it. I knew not why, because I played it 20 something years ago (borrowed it from him then too) but I needed to play it NOW.
The one thing I remembered (apart from the music) was the beautiful illustrations by my favorite artist, Yoshitaka Amano. But I have to admit - time, along with memory lapses, made me forget a lot of the plot and characters. During my replay, I rediscovered Cyan. I LOVE CYAN. This is Cyan.
Not only did I fall in love with the character but I fell in love with the term 'Licentious Howler'. After playing that scene I wanted to start a band so we could call ourselves The Licentious Howlers. I wanted Licentious Howler to be my screen name for everything I signed up for. I wanted to adopt a wolf baby and name it Licentious Hower. But sadly, I lack sufficient musical talent, changing all my screen names would be a bitch, and wolf babies are not easy to come by so instead I decided to write a blog.
So that's the introduction and the explanation and if you've stuck around to the end of this post you've got a better concentration span than I do. Stay tuned for more silliness in the upcoming weeks.
