Burn The World

Evening Move-About, 'I've Seen The Future, Baby, It Is Murder', and Shout-Outs

Ended up heading downtown so Di could meet up with passionandsoul and darkboy23, to brainstorm about an upcoming shoot. I think there's a chance I've passed a hello with passionandsoul once before, a couple years ago, as a photo play party she photographed sounds like the one I helped set up, and she DID look familiar...or maybe not, she was very cool anyway. Always good to see darkboy23, he's just a very cool guy. He had a couple ideas in there which I'd LOVE to be the model for...(*hinthint...braaaaaaaiiiinnnnnnsssss*)

After a couple hours chatting, everyone went their separate ways, ideas in head, and Di and I dropped into Virginia Cafe for foodage. Had one of the best Reuben sandwiches I've had in quite a while, but somehow, we got to talking sex and society, which started out as a biology lesson in the physical workings of the penis, and turned into an hour-and-a-half seminar on sex education and why people have bad sex lives...and how to fix it. The end result of all this is that the idea came up that perhaps, if I ever go back to school, I should be a sex therapist. In the cold light of day, I'm not certain how good an idea it is, but it's a moot point...I won't be going back to school anytime soon!

Dunno if I mentioned it, but I did get the confirmation that my recent contract is over! YES!!! Sad part is that you look at this logo, and it's not really anything that should have taken this long or been this hard...but you know how clients are: they dunno what they really want, so you have to GUESS what they want...and your first guess is ALWAYS wrong. When you get it right, there's a bunch of nit-picky things that have to be tweaked...you get the idea. Still, it's done.

Hell, while I'm on a roll, gotta shout out a welcome to some ple new readers: achmanage, whose username is entirely too close to mine ;)...flaminghalo, another interesting Seattle person I didn't discover until I moved away, have we met? You look familiar, or maybe I'm on crack...and dragonsfancy, who came here through the two-fisted duo of bigdaddygoat and nostradomnatrix...welcome all!

Hoping to have a couple new icons done for people today or tomorrow...and speaking of tomorrow, anyone who's familiar with unrepentant's 'Friday Pictures' can bop on over here for them tomorrow, as I'm Guest Hosting it...Go me.

Burn The World

Yep, I Did, Believe It Or Not

OK, so Bug brought home the DVD of "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" a couple of days ago...and I know he's gonna wanna watch it tonight. Now, as may have been mentioned before, I didn't think much of the whole 'Harry Potter' phenomenon...in fact, I was of the mind that it was basically pond scum. However, I try to be, in all things, a fair person, and give things a chance, so, alone and unfettered by distraction of fans of it, I tossed it in and watched it this afternoon.

Now, I have several friends that have been raving about the 'Potter' series, both books and movies, and they have, at one time or another, separately and concurrently, tried to get me to experience it, saying that I'd probably like it, with my gaming background and all. Admittedly, the idea behind it is interesting, so priding myself on my basic fairness, I watched with an open heart and an interested mind.

And there's two more still to come!

I just discovered this concert coming up...

No way can I make it. I've loved Iron Maiden all my life, and they are one of the only bands left on my 'want to see them before I die' list. Same with Motorhead (which I just missed as well). Dio, well Dio rocks. Now I'm depressed.

Oh, Ministry and Anthrax are opening the show...now I'm really depressed.

Oh look, tickets are only $50 for the best seats. Now I'm really REALLY depressed.
