David Mack [02 Dec 2005|05:23pm]
I have to share the joy of David Mack's art. He's a comic book artist/writer, but is so talented. I've been following his art for about six years now, yet as hard as I strive to create things like him, I just can't.

www.davidmack.net

So take a look at his talent. He uses no scanners, computer programs, etc. He does use copy machines, but that's about it. It's insane.

Until then, I must wait for the Kabuki movie to come out. I am so scared it'll be a disappointment!

Self-Portrait [02 Dec 2005|12:36am]

So this was supposed to be the image for my next painting, however the proportions didn't fit the canvas I wanted to use. Is it too egocentric to make so many self-portraits? This is number...alot.

Shall I Post More Pictures? [02 Dec 2005|12:26am]
[ mood | drained ]

While my Live Journal has been underwraps the past year or so, I haven't done much updating or picture post. Now that Nadine has ventured far enough as to ask me what the URL is, I think I'm going to take it to the next level and have some fun with this. It occurred to me the other day that I'm an art major, yet I don't think there's anything really "artistic" about me or what I do. At least, I don't think I produce enough images to constitute myself as an artist.
SO, I shall stay on top of this blog and maybe it'll motivate me to create art to post for the pleasure of other people. And maybe it'll even be an expression of how I feel.
Let the fun begin...

So I've been procrastinating seriously, but I've finally come to terms that the end of the semester is near and I've almost made it. Until then, I am having a LOT of fun with my project.

Mountain Dew [03 Oct 2005|10:22pm]
So I finally saw Mountain Dew in a clear glass the other day. I seriously had to wonder, Am I really drinking something that looks so radioactive?

It still doesn't stop my addiction to it though.

Corpse Bride [01 Oct 2005|08:00pm]
[ mood | calm ]

I suppose I shouldn't have watched Corpse Bride last night since I've been thinking about friendships, relationships, conflicts, etc. too much this past week. But, I did. I watched it, and I loved it.

It was a complicated situation that was simplified to a minimum. This left me wishing that the movie could have been developed further, but I think it was intentionally left open for interpretation. I didn't know how to feel about it at first, but then I realized what the problem was.

The story is about how a man falls in love with a woman he was supposed to be married to, but ends up accidentally marrying a dead bride. Both women fall in love with him, but his heart is really only for one. Now, normally in these kinds of situations, the audience is lead to route for one of the girls over the other. Both girls have different personalities, and normally one is good and the other is bad. The problem lies in the fact that both girls were good for him. Aside from the fact that one of the girls is dead, both are quiet and shy and something in common with him.

As I watched the rest of the story untangle, I felt so torn. I mean this man had two girls to choose from. They were both great, and they both loved him, yet in the end it was ultimately his decision.

It looked like such a simple story from the outside, but it left me with even more to think about.

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.... [15 Sep 2005|10:52pm]
OK, so I was thinking the other day, how weird is it that two people can just "find each other" in the entire big world - and if you think about it, pretty much the universe? Is it just me, or is the whole idea of finding you're other "half" just bizarre?

I mean, I've met girls who just swear they've found the man of their dreams, but then the boy doesn't like them. Or, there are the people who have been friends for the longest time, and BOOM! suddenly they're...IN LOVE? What is that all about?? But I do understand that you have to be friends first in order to get to know someone before you really see the traits you like about them. My head hurts.

And how is it possible that everyone can be at the right time and the right place to just have everything in place to meet the person. I mean think about this. You're life is busy enough as it is, and I'm sure all of you at one point have been on at least one fantastic journey that has brought you miles from home. Yet, somehow and in someway, you're supposedly going to be brought to this moment in your life where you meet "the one," and EVERYTHING gets turned around. If you're single, this is probably what you are anticipating, but you've probably also heard time and time again is that you should just live your life content being single as if it won't happen, but at the same time, you're supposed to just wait for it to happen. I don't know about anyone else, but this is a bit mind boggling.

I was thinking about it and I think it'd be pretty cool if God actually does have some sort of mathematical equation to ensure that everyone can be in the right moment at the right time. I mean, otherwise, we're pretty much basing everything on chance. That just seems risky. I guess we're technically supposed to base it on faith. (I feel like people interchange those words when talking about this subject though.)

Other than that, I don't even know what to think of any of it. My head hurts trying to comprehend how complex the entire process is, but that's when I trust God and just realize how little I am.

You are a Dreamer! [14 Sep 2005|05:54pm]
(Submissive Introverted Abstract Feeler)
You are a DREAMER (SIAF)— reserved and imaginative. You are basically the shy, silent type. You don't have much interest in facts and figures or most of what's going on around you, but the internal worlds you build for yourself are rich and complex. Luckily, your creativity and strong heart mean you have a deep personality evident to anyone who gets to know you. It's just that not many people do. Talk to yourself less, other people more.

I'm not so shy and silent, that's about all that's changed for me. I just don't like crowds, or people. Is it bad that I want to have more alone time, but feel like I just haven't been able to?

Hopefully I'll write something coherent [09 May 2005|10:04am]
[ mood | irritated ]

no pictures today. In fact, probably no pictures for a while. It's seems my procrastination has caught up to me and I wonder if I'll pass this semester.
I guess my thoughts and worries of the past weekend have overwhelmed me and I realize how little I feel in the world. I mean, honestly, how much change can I make in this world on my own. I can't even control the relationships in my life.
I don't understand friendships mostly I realized. I wonder if its because I have not really ever cultivated close friendships that I was willing to sacrifice anything to keep. Perhaps I give up too easily? I don't want to put so much into my friendships that I feel burned out though. And hurt mostly.
When can you sever a friendship and not feel like you gave up too early?
My main problem is that I will joyfully cut off a friendship and know that I can still be on good terms with the person, but this doesn't work if the feeling isn't reciprocated.
I guess the reason I wonder and write is realizing that maybe I'm the problem?

I don't think it's possible for a bride not to be beautiful. I think I am satisfied with it.

Winter Sucks [20 Jan 2004|01:07am]
[ mood | sad ]

Depressed. Don't know how to fix myself.


I wish something would happen to take me out of this cycle. I don't care if it's better or equally depressing, as long as it's not here. It feels like an eternity of purgatory.

List A [30 Nov 2003|08:41pm]
1. The Tomb Raider Soundtrack is rocking my world.

2. I watched Interview with a Vampire last night. I realized that: (a) in order to be a vampire, you can't be scared of vampires, (b) it's a real commitment to be a vampire, and (c) Louie (Brad Pitt) talks exactly like Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller).

Finding the "Happy in Winter" [17 Oct 2003|03:02pm]
[ mood | distressed ]

This year my goal is to find the happy in winter (who wants a slice?!)
So far this my list of things to do to keep me happy:

:\:ONE:\:

Ice Skating in the Mall at D.C. Fun Metro Ride, Outdoors, Nice Scenery, and COFFEE! (or hot chocolate for the anti-latte people)


t.w.o Snow Tubing Fun car ride. $8 for three hours. Cool machine to take you up the hill. And Cracker Barrel on the way back home.

Th.REE Spy Museum So it's $15. You get to pick an alias that you keep through the rest of the tour. Videos that teach you how to be a great spy. And all the info on the mafia you ever needed to know.

four Work At least you're getting paid....

FIVE Hibernation Sarah's suite, a million people, 80's movies and cartoons, and a whole lotta sleep!

6IXDRAWING. I don't care if you say you suck at it. Anyone that wants to draw/paint with me, call me any time!

7

Bubble Tea

Nothing beats a Raspberry Milk Bubble Tea. When the drink is all gone, the straw is an awesome bubble shooter. (Just don't shoot anyone in the eye)

EIGHT Baking: I have new ideas on cookie experimentation. Rocky Road Cookie bars, and Toffee bars. It'll be a fattening winter...but oh so good. Eventually I'll stumble upon a recipe for the Orgasm Cake from Matrix 2.

Alright, so I'm out of ideas now. There's got to be some more things to do in winter right? Anyone want to add to this list?

I know that you love me and soon you will see,
You were meant for me, and I was meant for you."
