breaking news!

Snoop Dogg was arrested just down the street from me at 7:35 tonight after performing on the Tonight Show …..which is also down the street from me…. which I guess means big stars are down the street from me all the time…..and I suppose they are at Warner Brothers’ studios a lot….which is across the street from my apartment…. hmm…I guess it isn’t that big a deal after all….

okay, ALL the images work in the art gallery now. Also – those five phantom images at the bottom are gone. The history page doesn’t have a pop-up anymore and the link to the last version of this site is corrected. I went to look at the blog’s menu problems… if you guys will load up the site in internet explorer you’ll see that the weird images not loading fiasco only happens in Mozilla…. weird, huh? yes, I know the…

version #9

version #9

Welcome to version #9 of this site. There are some problems that need fixed (i.e. like the menus to the left that don’t work), but I’m going to call it a day since I’ve been working on this all day now. Time for some sleep! There are about 20 new pieces in the art gallery – check it out! -oh and this site I updated as well. Not as exciting…but a new look.

By the way, anyone not from the west coast – next time you see pulp fiction pay special attention to the car scene in the latter third. The wolf comes to a house. Where is that house? Samuel L. Jackson explains to John Travolta that the house is in Toluca lake and that it is “up the street from Warner Brothers studios.” Toluca Lake is an amorphous mass that bleeds into and through North Hollywood, Burbank, Universal City, etc. Alfonso…

The Fountain

The Fountain

This is the best movie I’ve seen in a long time. Darren Aronofsky (who also directed Pi and Requiem for a Dream) used mostly “real” special effects (i.e. no CGI). The story is full of metaphor and open to interpretation and you won’t understand what happened (or interpret it in your own way) until a few minutes, hours, days, or never after you walk out of the theater. Throughout the movie I was thinking “god this music is great too.”…

OSU vs. UM

OSU vs. UM

Okay, so I turn on the tv this morning to ABC, hoping the local station will be carrying the GameDay feed already. They are not, they are carrying the national ABC news. Each segment ends with a reminder about the game and a shot of times square where “tailgaters” are getting ready for the game. SO FAKE! It was laughable how fake these “tailgaters” were. All white of course. There was a fat “dad” character for each team at the…

no, I don’t smoke pot, Dammit!

For the past six weeks or so my eyes have been extraordinarily red. I’ve always struggled with red eyes due to allergies and other sensitivities, however, this was really bad. It was so bad that at an executive council meeting Wednesday several of my peers queried what was wrong with my eyes. Immediately after the meeting I decided to do something about it and scheduled an optometrist appointment for later that day. The optometrist explained that I had mild allergies,…

Mel Who?

Mel Who?

I don’t have cable tv. I don’t really miss it that much. It has been so long since I’ve had it I honestly forget what I used to watch. What I don’t understand is “trash hour” on network tv. This is the hour after happy hour is over and before prime time begins. The news is done so what do we put on? Every network seems to think celebrity gossip is the answer. Except for the one network that airs…

I’ve been quietly amassing new artwork for my next update for this website. Expect a new site up for this and LongImage by January 2007. For this site I’ll be using photo-realism techniques for the main layout for the first time. On LongImage I’ll have a much more extensive portfolio. I have between 10 and 15 new pieces for the gallery on this site as well. I’ve quickly run out of space to store all of this – so last…

as much as I hate the state patrol – Ice Cube was wrong

as much as I hate the state patrol – Ice Cube was wrong

From time to time in a slow news season things like this tend to pop up. I have to weigh in on this. Anyone who takes the side of the “victim” in this incident (and thousands like it) should be committed. Yes, police brutality is wrong. However, every time this happens the victim coincidentally isn’t exactly a Stanford Alumnus on his way to give blood at the local Red Cross before going to work and performing brain surgery at Cedar…
