The Simpsons

I had my picture taken with the Simpson family while at the movie theater to see Shrek the Thrid, I can't wait to see The Simpson's Movie. Although I am behind on collecting the seasons on dvd I do have the first couple of seasons and would love to have time to actually watch them all, although i have seen most of them up until the later seasons at least. Just thought I'd share my picture with y'all.

New Widget.

I know my blog site is getting a little crowded with all the ads and donation boxes and such but now i added a thing where you can actually have it email you when i have new blogs, hopefully to bring my traffic up to speed with my myspace blogs, because i'm finding that most places don't count myspace as a true blog so i'm moving to check it out..sign up.. and help me out thanks guys.

Blog title generator needed.

Some things just bother me, most of 'em seem to be signs of OCD, such as, I want all dvds in their case if they are not being watched, not laying loose outside the case, or even worse laying on top of the case, It bothers me that we have dvds lining the mantel of the fireplace and not neatly placed on a shelf and another pile laying next to the couch but we don't really have room or money to get a shelf to place them on. I also like for cds to be in their case or in the binder sleeve where it belongs if it is not being listened to. and i guess this all goes for video games also, many other things bother me but i hate to complain about stuff so much..cause life is pretty good to me so far, so i can't really complain about too much, oh and my b'day is tomorrow so an easy way to give a gift is to just click on the donate paypal button to the right there >>>>>>
it's easier than mail and half of y'all never see me anyways..thanks for reading.

nothing better to do but blog

Well , I've nothing better to do so I shall blog once again today. I can't wait for dinner Qdoba is our usual Wednesday night thing due to children eating free and it's yummy stuff. So I'm sitting here listening to the sounds coming from the kitchen, for some reason the kids don't play with toys or watch tv but would rather play in the kitchen, somewhat cleaning but mostly just fighting and making each other cry but I guess the kitchen benefits from it so who am I to argue with them. I guess thats it for now.

Good Morning.

Well, I've been up now and gotten ready for the day. Then headed downstairs to clean up the kitchen that was a wreck, a combination of mess before we left for the beach, mess created yesterday from groceries and mess from this morning the kids eating pop tarts, yogurt, cereal, and whatever else they could find to eat. So I got the kitchen all cleaned up, but the living room is still a mess. It seems so pointless when there are just three little monsters going behind you and messing stuff back up. I feel like mom sometimes almost getting my feelings hurt cause they don't listen, it doesn't matter how many times I say something it's like I'm just going "Wah, wah wah wah wah" so I guess I'll just stop telling them what to do and what not to do. So thats my day so far. I wish Kate(our cat named after my dead grandma) was like her brother and wouldn't put up with being drug around the house. oh well she's too sweet for that.

Almost recovered.

Well we've been back from the beach now and I'm still not fully recovered. Maybe I'll get caught up on my sleep tomorrow. I have to get some pictures posted on here. Thanks to Lisa I have a slideshow on my myspace page. House is a great show, we've picked it up and I've been enjoying it. I've been shopping around on Itunes lately and am kind of let down by the selection of movies and tv shows but I'm sure it will get better. I'll keep all updated.

Well we are back from the beach now and it was a great time. We are all a little sun kissed but nobody is in major pain. We were gone for 5 nights, it was great and I wasn't ready to go home. We got tons of great pictures and I saw some that I would love to attempt to draw, I'll post those later cause I'm sure I'll have time to try that later. I noticed no donations, gotta say that I completely expected to have some in my paypal account when I came back from the beach but we'll see how it goes. I don't wanna come off as a beggar. But send me a buck, it'll make you feel better.

Simon Flipping off Blake

This is not a digitally enhanced photo, it was taken while the television was paused right after Blake's performance of Maroon 5's "This Love", shows what Simon really thinks huh?

Hard to wash a muffin pan

So we are getting near ready to head out to the beach, all packed accept for a few things. So I'm ready for this bargain beach trip, that's what we'll call it because we are all low on cash but we need to go to the beach so that's where were gonna go. It'll be fun and we'll have some great pictures to show. I'm gonna eat some oysters and i know i probably shouldn't because i've always heard not to eat oysters in months with no "r" and if it doesnt' rain alot then the oysters might be holding pollution that didn't get washed out due to them filter feeding, but i want some oysters so i'm gonna do the dumb thing and eat 'em anyways but i'll let you know how that goes. so this is my last blog until i get back from the beach.

if my calculations are correct SLINKY + ESCALATOR = EVERLASTING FUN

(Insert blog title here)

I always have trouble coming up with titles for my blogs. It always seems that no matter where I go I always wind up taking the trash out, whether work or home I always take out the trash, I'm not complaining accept for when it smells really bad then I might complain. But the weird thing is that in high school when I took that aptitude test it said that the ideal job for me was a "sanitation worker" I would love to take one of those tests again to see how I've changed. Anyways I'm out. I guess I'll start ending my blogs with a clever little quote taken from somewhere off of the world wide web.
this one is compliments of Vance's website.

Myspace celebrity.

Well today at work there was a so called "myspace celebrity" she claimed that she had had over 1000 friends on myspace, her profile had been deleted and she started over and had another account shut down for that same reason but the deal was that she had actually met most of hier"friends" in real life, so Ricky the manager at GAP had ran across her and just added her just for kicks and now the guy shows up at the GAP and Ricky recognized her and says "you are shorter than i thought you'd be" so i thought that was kinda creepy, for this person to just show up like "hey i'm your friend on myspace, and i'm staying with your friend. anyways..

This is a piece that I did on our family craft night where all of us did a painting. It is acrylic paint on canvas board.

Nice to have comments

Even from strangers it's nice to have 'em, I love to know that somebody is reading my thoughts and looking at my artwork, I guess I need to start popping out the paintings for all to see. Thanks guys.

annoying parent at the park.

Well we went to the park with Drew today and this lady was following her child around insisting that he go hit the bells when clearly the child did not want to hit the stupid bells, he wanted to climb and slide and do boy to make things worse Drew fell and hit his head which in turn made him bite his tongue and he was hurt so he was crying, so the mom uses that to scare the kid from playing on the slide.."Look he's crying, he fell, he's hurt, I don't want you to get hurt". I felt like telling the little boy he could slide if he wanted to, c'mon lady let the kid have some fun. ugh..that's my gripe for the day.

Working at GAP

Great American Product, Gay and Proud, whatever you say it stands for It really stands for the GAP that they supposedly bridged between the generations, clothing for all the generations anyways... it's an alright place to work just annoying sometimes with the mall security and all coming and knocking on the door and telling us to stop doing what we are doing and come sign their little paper saying who is there, well crap i bet they didn't make all the mall walkers sign in, and if they don't want everybody coming to work without their permission then why the crap do they unlock all the doors? anyways, and another thing, our shipment always gets there late, every day we get there at 6 and the shipment is supposed to be there at the most at 7 but it's always there about 7:45 or 8:00 and that isn't so bad when we have a small shipment which it has been for the past couple of times anyways i'm done griping and would like to paint some more now so i'll see ya'll guys later.

Tonsil Stones

Well I have tonsil stones, they are little white particles that get lodged in your tonsil's luckily i only have one but it drives me nuts, it feels like i have a little piece of chip lodged between my ear and my throat and i cannot get it out i've poked at it and poked at it and gargled and it's just frustrating i need some tips on how to get rid of this thing so if anybody has any ideas post a comment i need some answers.

Helping a brother out.

So i have hopefully hooked up a couple of buddies today by sending them some tracks that they had previously worked on and recorded, hopefully something good will come out of it for 'em I think I'm going to start painting more often if I can find the time cause I'd love to finish that set for Lisa and photograph it and post it for the world to see. so i gotta get busy.

Well it's nice to get comments..I'm glad somebody did..I wish the other 15 times the page has been viewed somebody would have left some comment even if it is just a name just so i know who is going to look at my page. I'm curious about that and want people to want to see what i have done or what i have to say. I have another painting to post. I did it last night during a little arts and craft time here at the house, it was pretty fun.

Final project.

This was our final project we were to find a well known painting and then make a parody including ourselves in it somehow. so i took one of Pablo Picasso's and just put my face where his was and yes my eye is supposed to be cloudy like that.

This is my self potrait that turned out good as well and looks like an old baseball card but thats cool to me, i think it looks alot like me and was pleased with how it turned out.

This was our first real still life it was two brown paper bags pinned to the wall on top of a blue curtain and a red curtain and we were to choose an interesting composition and paint it as we saw it. This was is a really good one if you ask me so tell me what you think?

White still life.

This was the hardest painting we did all class. It was a whole lot of white stuff and we were to paint it as acuratly as possible, believe it or not that is a head of a cherib sitting on a bucket with a large golf ball below.

Bright Still life.

This one was really bright and I chose to focos on the flower in the foreground with the inflatable shark in the background or bird if you are Lisa ha ha..either way it turned out great either as a still life or as another abstract piece, but I was impressed with how well i matched the colors to the actual still life.

Playing with paint.

This was our first project and the assignment was to just play with the paint and get used to using oil paints with the linseed oil and mineral spirits. An abstract piece where if something started to arise from the mess we were to smash it. I believe i acomplished this goal.

Green Still Life

This is my green still life painting. it's Oil paint and the instructer said that I was being ambitious trying to paint the entire still life while the other classmates just picked specific parts to paint. This painting turned out well and matched the kitchen great.
there are more to come as soon as we get 'em up so that I can photograph them.

just a doodle.

This is just a simple design I came up with in my spare time using Illustrator, coming up with logos for different things is always a pleasent challenge.

This is a still life that is of a skull and some draperies in the background, done only with a piece of chalk on black pastel paper. Turned out really well.
