Listening to Digable Planets now. The song is 'art of easing'. As any one acquainted with Digable Planets can imagine, the tune is very chill. I love their music... though I'm sure its dated to some degree. But you know, music ages like wine - unless its horrible in the first place, then it never really mattered to begin with.

We had a yard sale here today at the house. It went well... you meet cool people at garage sales. They're very frugal folks. Its good to meet like minded people. Made some cash, spent a little on lunch at Firehouse subs and then took a nap. Nothing creative happening today. Gotta print tomorrow and do domestic duties at Mom's. Sucks when you get old and can't do things for yourself...

Anyway, keep an eye out for new stuff to head down the pipe. Getting ready to make some new prints. But until then, you'll have to check out some interesting articles from the day...

Well, its another day over. Didn't get to draw much today... just a bit over at the H&R Block. That's a very boring place. I don't know if I could work at a place like that, not that I have to do that per se, but its just a place that seems very boring. Its hard to say that the guy preparing the taxes there today was really into it either. Although, he better be for what they charge!

In other news, a small part of my time online everyday is spent reading news. Part of the news on our local newspaper website is the mug shots section. Its posted right on the front page, usually with a very tragic shot of a person with a strange look. This evening, I found that 10 out of the 36 people on the list of arrests were arrested for drugs.... those drugs, they really keep the MAN busy don't they?

John Doe has been identified as one of those charged.
He befriended ganja. This is not good for his freedom.
Not at all.

Yikes... I saw too many people walking today in our town. If you think things are getting tough out there in the 'economy', look around to see if anyone's walking - unless you live in a big city where walking's a typical mode of transportation. I'm seeing more and more people here on foot.

Used to be in our town, there were only a few people walking -

  • the guy that carries a football helmet and wears the heavy down jacket in the middle of the summer
  • the black dude with the beard and weird walk that yells at himself constantly
  • a family of special people who ride the bus and seem to get off at every stop

One time, I was riding my beach cruiser for fun and was stopped by some people who I hadn't seen in a long time. Turns out they thought I had gotten a DUI or something... they couldn't figure out why I would be riding a bike otherwise. Riding bikes was one of the best things about living in a college town. Gainesville had a such a good vibe for bike riders... it always felt natural to ride a bike there...

Somewhere in southern California, there's a woman very proud of her new chest... the problem is, if she comes out of hiding she'll be arrested. Apparently, she went under the knife under a fraudulent identity to get free boobs. So here's the headline and her image:

Woman Allegedly Steals Brand New Breasts

Has the economy gotten so bad, people are stealing boob jobs? Police say Yvonne Pampellonne (pictured) used a fake ID to get cosmetic surgery.


I guess if you see her, either compliment her on her boobs or report her to the police... somewhere in southern California there's a plastic surgeon unable to make his $12,000 mortgage payment. Wait, something tells me he'll be able to make the payment - and that the $12k isn't that big of a deal.

But today, I have a surprise... its not going to be released here yet. Sometime soon though. I will say that it has to do with my art, but that's all I can divulge at this point. Pretty cool though.

four winds...

This evening is coming around... the sun is setting and I've been listening to a Lynyrd Skynyrd playlist on Seeqpod. If you've never heard of Seeqpod, here it is:

I've been using Seeqpod for almost a year now and still love it. When the company / website started out I thought is was too good to be true - to be free - to be... well, just to be. Even with the expected commercial turn I knew the site would take, I'm still very comfortable with the site. True, they do have little 'buy ringtone' buttons here and there, but its still a great site.

Basically all you do is go to the site, sign up, and start searching for music right away. The cool thing is that Seeqpod searches the internet for random servers that have music listings... and the site also seems to rely on audiophiles that have uploaded their collection of MP3's to the internet (all backups of their cd, tape or record duplications) - I say that for legal reasons.

I mean, the site is great. Did I say that already? But seriously, this is the way things are going. Its just amazing. For instance, a while back after watching the Big Lebowski for the 1000th time, I looked up the soundtrack on to see who the artists were and found Townes Van Zandt to be singing the cover of the Rolling Stones "Dead Roses". So I check out to see if any of Townes music was on Seeqpod.

Bingo! Lots of it.

So, now I'm a big Townes and Steve Earl fan (Mr. Earl by proxy to finding TVZ). Its been a great experience. And yet, I am by no means an expert at using the internet and all things new in technology... but little things like free and easily searchable music as just the coolest thing.

Here's a playlist I'm currently listening to:

SeeqPod - Playable Search

That's about it for now.

I'm confused. This article is confusing... but then, what in today's society isn't confusing. Like, 'where did all that money go?' People can't even understand how much money 9.7 trillion dollars is... graphically, its simply staggering. Most people don't know that a billion is simply 1000 million. So, that would make a trillion a million million. Get it?

That's ok. There's lots of things out there we don't understand. Like this article about a Woman undergoing sex change to become man is pregnant with twins I would rather focus on the simple things in life - like drawing and screen printing. Hey, it may not bring in tons of cash, but its very enjoyable.
