Copic markers

Anyone else having fun with these? I've got them for free and thought they were quite useless... but on typewriter paper, because they are alcohol based, the pigment can be erased or blended after drying. I think that's how it works. Here's my results on the day I was really bored at Intonation: htt...

I've just returned from a show The Magnetic Fields put on in Chicago at the Old Town School of Folk Music. It's a very attractive place, getting there about an hour before the show I had an escorted tour of the premises. They have some interesting murals, friendly people and thick folk song books. W...

Heh. It's a fairly good little film. Forgettable enough. My friend really loved it though. Can't shut up about it. It'll probably become somewhat a classic, like Waiting for Guffman. We went to see a screening of it last Monday in Chicago. They gave away t-shirts with 'lygers' on them as well. I can...

Livejournal users: if there's a sadder bunch of people who are not into furry fetishes, I've yet to meet them. Of course some of them are. Seriously, even Craigslist is less pathetic--where as, there, pedophiles post "I like Muppets a lot, let's meet", Livejournal users write erotic fan-fiction feat...

Hey son of a rich[ie], Well, the comparison to 'Annie Hall' is obvious. Speaking of which, my favorite of Woody Allen to this day remains 'What's up tiger Lilly?'; it's not better than, say, Manhattan, I just like it more. As for Airplane, I find it funny, though it's shame that most people haven't ...

The film didn't seem all that promising to me at first, but after hearing some of you gush about it, I went and saw it tonight. Jim Carey managed to: impress me. Kaufman can: write clever dialogue. As for the film: well, I liked Annie Hall better. Again: it is a very clever remake. The trend of: fra...

'Shaolin Soccer' is, appallingly enough of me to say, one of those films that would have withstood a 24 minute cut. But, I say that not as Stephen Chow fan, but as a film geek. And though, yes, it is good, it doesn't compare to Chow's previous endeavors, not even to 'Fight back to School part III'. ...

I don't have secret pleasures really—everything I watch lately has some element that can be counted against it. I have no qualm about recommending the films though. Hmm, my earliest have been the Airport films; George Kennedy is a genius, an unrecognized genius. He's a goddam academy award winner. T...

My girlfriend alerted me to this post. It made me return from my self-imposed exile.

Congratulations, Hope! Did you move yet?

It wouldn't be in gigs, or in any other serial-based computing unit. That's how the human brain is engineered. The closest technological comparison you could draw is parallel computing. Our synapses are actually very slow, much slower than gate switches in processors, but because there is such a lar...

Yeah, I’m not to crazy to go through with the entire progress; but, some, sure. I’ve already posted this. I think it’s just the stages where things are messy that I try to hide. The pattern I’ve gotten from k10k, but perhaps I should replace it with my own. I’ve added it through Photoshop; you know ...

Hey, what are you some kind of a narc?

Drugs are so subjective, I hope I'm not the only one here to think that all things are alright in moderation. And, if I am, then you are all squares. Squares that haven't studied Socrates, to add.

I haven't made much progress from my last entry here, only a few pages; I can't seem to find the time between drinking and drugs and leaving graffiti on this board. But I'm determined to finish this, dammit. Also: Some sketches I've cleaned up; I'll follow the same format as before, the light from t...

Thanks for asking, it's like you DO care. The day was insightful... yet strange. I took up the task of digitizing our family albums, some going back to when photography was first invented. Among them I've found pictures of Solzhenitsyn in a prison cell, a tank being buried and Stalin's right hand ma...
