HandMade

What's up with all these haters on PostCrossing not wanting handmade cards? 
Lame! 
They're just going to have to take what I give them!

This dog Dixie farted near me tonight and, I believe, released a demon into this world as I have never smelled something more foul than that. It hung in the air, forever. It was kind of amazing.
Oooooo, I watched Exit Through the Gift Shop last night. Loved it. I was working on a bunch of drawings and was so inspired that I couldn't go to sleep! Note to self: Do not watch inspiring art docs before bed. I want my studio back & I want a warehouse. Who's with me?


Another great doc is The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.
These people are insane, for realz.
Also, it's just great to have a follow up to The Dancing Outlaw!

I love these covers. 
Thanks to DeeJayKate for her awesome music recommendations!

This is a cover of a Chumbawamba song. These people deserve a medal for taking such a terrible song and making it beautiful!

This is a cover of a Fever Ray song. I like it better than the original, even though I enjoy the original song, it can be a little too dark/gothy for my taste. The lighter folk version is super cute. Love it love it love it.

Sorry I've made so few posts this month! 
I'm working on a secret project
;)


Yeah, that's a space peanut. 
I'm watching Joe Dirt!



Also, I had to post this. My friend Kate runs OkStoopid, she found this comic in the internets and I can't stop giggling at it.

I'm back!

Chicago was freezing! 

But I got to meet my new nephew!

And see my puppies!

And be in a Christmas Family wonderland!

But, now I'm back to my little home called Santa Barbara. Not missing the 14 degree days in Chicago, but I am missing my family. It's hard being so far from them all the time. But, I've tried living in Chicago. I put in over two years there. It just isn't my cup of tea. I want palm trees and beaches. Not Vienna beef and binge drinkers. Different strokes for different folks.

Newest Design

This design looks like a late Henry Matisse cut out that was given a makeover in the 80's. More colors below.

On a different note:
Has anyone seen this on UrbanOutfitters.com?
Looks like a giant double ended dildo to me!

PostCrossing!

Iceland

Love it!


Belarus
If you sent me this beautiful card can you message me on PostCrossing with the code so I can register it? Way too much work has gone into this postcard for it to go unregistered! And thank you for sending it!

I cannot even begin to describe how much I love the Death Metal Rooster!!!!

Crest

I'm not exactly sure what to think of this design. 
I started off with the intent of making a paisley print.
Somewhere along the way I got lost.
Kind of getting that "tattoo" vibe. 
Don't like "tattoo" vibe.
(I have many tattoos, just don't like the whole Ed Hardy, 
tattoo art on everything, rhinestones & skulls. Barf.)



More colors coming.

I'm heading to Chicago in the morning! Have to visit my fam and see my brother's new baby, born last Friday! 

How about some Jon Lajoie?
My favorite is the Canadian Guy!

Really!?!

Can't believe the movie channel Starz.
They recently cancelled Party Down and Gravity due to "poor ratings."


And you kidding me?


I don't own a TV. The shows I love I watch online! 
As do most people I know.
Why the fuck are these companies following such an out of date process and canceling quality shows because of it?
You gotta be kiddin' me!

I want answers!


Anyway, I'm always curious to see what categories Netflix has chosen for me due to my ratings. 
Currently they are as follows:



Dark Dysfunctional-Family TV Shows


Steamy Movies based on real life

Comedies

Quirky Documentaries

Cerebral Movies

Ortega

Iz You Tweakin'?

A friend of mine posted this a few months ago, I still can't stop watching it.
The reason this guy has so much chick drama is because he dates 14 year olds!
(Also, that bedazzled sweat shirt is amazing!)

Entrophy

I had my astrological birth chart done recently.
It had some interesting, funny & insightful things to say about my life, feelings & general persona.
Since I'm the only one who cares what my birth chart says, here are the highlights:

She is a Fighter


If fame doesn't come when living, then it will come posthumously


 Likes liberty, wants a life that is out-of-the-ordinary


You are uncomfortable in any position in which you must "take orders" from someone else.


Scorpio rising people value their privacy so much, it can border on paranoia.
