It's raining here today. Raining in a manner of speaking.

Here's a picture from when my dad was getting Catholic.

Bring It On

Otherwise things have been fine. I've been having a week long pity party for myself but enough of that is certainly enough.

Yesterday I was recording a song and I was congratulating myself about not making crackly noises as I was turning the page of music but then I listened to the recording and right in the middle, I hear Boo's tags clinking and his ears hitting against his head as he shakes himself out like he's all wet. Hahaha. I love that young man.

Some photos and random ramblings )

Here is my new belt buckle.


I wish I could should good photos straight out of the camera. Maybe I'll start practicing that... but probably not.

So lately I've been thinking it would be really neat to do art stuff with some kids facing challenges like autism. A friend of mine works at a house where kids who are wards of the state live, kids with autism and Tourette's, etc. Wouldn't that be cool? It seems like a big scary awesome challenge.

Sunday Beth has agreed to model for me; I'll be doing her makeup, prolly some completely bananas thing. Not like regular go-outside makeup. But then again, maybe that's what I should be doing, because Beth never wears makeup and I don't know how comfortable she'll be.

My eyes are weirdly big. I put this up on that one self portraits community and in response someone posted a picture of a lemur, with its eyes being all 1/3 of its face. I'm gonna try to go be friends with that person.

Thank You Apple J

I've been having either a great hermithood or an equivocal one.

My dad is pissed because I don't check facebook enough. I spent all kinds of time photoshopping some power lines out of a balloon shot he took from the balloon fiesta a couple weeks ago, and then the dogs broke the thumb drive so I became frustrated and quit.

On one hand, hermithood has been a failure; I've been in and out of town. I thought I was going to be exclusively in the mountains and never come down and be freezing and starving and people-free. Instead I shot Rob and Minnie's album cover, drank at Eliot's and got all drunk-emotional, and did other business type activities like check into contracting, zoning, and building permits.

But on the other hand, I've been making resin-paintings, taking lots of pictures, making paper-mache antlers, and learning to do metal clay. I'm working on two paintings and trying to learn how to make my own encaustics with 85% beeswax, 15% varnish, and pigments. I hope that goes well. It's nice to be productive.

The only trouble is that I think my self esteem might be worse actually than it was before. Also, I kicked iaaphoto and crimsonglory42 off my f-list because I realized I am happy for those strangers but at the same time something about their lives make me sad. I don't want to be having dreams about their happy lives. I'd rather have dreams about my own happy life and how I can make it a zillion times better. I feel like I'm invisible and like Carissa and Carly and everyone are exhibiting great improvements in their work by leaps and bounds while I wallow and stay the same.

If I yelled out right now, only the dogs would notice. I don't even think they'd wake up, the lazes.

Here are my best boys:

Least Threatening Bite Ever

Dogs are Nice

I'm only going to be hermitting for another week.
