"units of revelation" - love that phrase
Tough to lose a job on short notice.  Mind goes to familiar places.  Wonderful not to work, terrible to be unemployed.

Great to snare a job for the moment.  Mind goes to familiar places.  A job is a drug like any other, that's for sure.
Back in a poverty cycle.  Mind goes to familiar places.

nonentities entertain such things nonsense nonentities entertain;
noiseless voices known only under oceans
say arrows in narrows harrow even the pharaohs
...and oysters and emeralds sufficient as frontispieces

quick bolt

So I've got the TV on mute in the background as I'm working over some music on the computer...  I've got it set up so that when I mute it, the closed-captioning starts in.  Anyway, this is the scenario in which I suddenly realize, you know what?  They don't closed-caption the phone sex commercials.  Bolt of truth.  Makes total sense.  You could just take that and bottle it.

Now here are some pictures of volcano lightning:

gonna do some drawings...

here's one: used paintbrush program with the angle brush on girlfriend's laptop.  no mouse, just fingertouch pad; so would you consider it fingerpainting?  angle brush, though...  so it's kind of like calligraphy.  fingerpaint calligraphy.  yes.  and so that would be something you couldn't do very easily in real life.  well, maybe with a fingernail you could.  i'll have to try that...

next we have Rep. Peter King, who's gearing up for his Islamic Radicalization Hearings.  i added some decoration to the eyes area and also did a li'l skin-flap flip'o'the cheek for added emphasis.  also added eyelines in addition.  thanks to newscom, S.J. Ferrell.

here's a fun li'l guy.  i call him the snow ranger.  follow the rules!  made it with the 'spraypaint' tool.  started with a 5X7 size--a good size for mantlepiece.  nice colors, for winter and spring.

observe 'coinage4':
paintbrush circles tool and paint bucket wash. is it flat like a coin?  or do you see it with depth, like glassware?

now, this has been fun...

My final entry: gastro pyramids, which playfully handles themes of pyramids and abdominals.  does 'x' really mark the spot?  pencil tool, line tool, and paint bucket.

see you next time %)
