linds came over for a visit, we talked for awhile then both fell asleep. steph came home from her "eCamp " thing so we went to steph's dad's sports night fundraiser thing. steph got a wee bit smashy. i got a wee bit smashy. we danced, they danced. an older lady hit on me, steph danced me away from that horrorshow. i spent the morning excavating my back yard. the greenery had overrun most of the fixtures and platners. there are brick steps, various cinder blocks and wood planters that were all but obscured from the jungle of crap growing since who knows when.

drawing night

drawing night is wednesday, went to ssu cause it's the most convenient way. you'll see on the left there are 2 new drawings. so im not going to bother linking here. so in the past 7 days i have done 4ish drawings. that's a lot better than 0 drawings which was my average right after graduation. got good news from smova this morning. actually any news is good news they've been pretty tight lipped. found out form chris later on (he drove to smova) that we will get info on our stuff (what it went for, how much, who bought it etc.) "in several weeks" also i never got my "award/prize" for getting an honourable mention. i'll have to call or email carol to find out what's going on with that.

you may notice

over the last several days i have modified the site pretty heavy. the gallery now emails me when anyone comments, i wrote up some code (with logic help) to display the 5 most recent drawings, all pages have a unified look, changed webcam page, changed front page, moved log archives to the bottom of this page. what do you think? the plan is to move the drawings to the right, vertical, along side the blog, tomorry. it's 10p and i need some dinner :) if anyone wants the source its right here, and here is the test page (also useful for mobile viewing)

During the LA riots, back in the early 90's, the tv was full of images of destruciton and chaos. It meant something to me, but not a lot. I didn't quite understand the signifigance of it, the people participating or the actions they were taking. I remember that guy that got pulled from the truck and smashed on, i remember the people running around.
One day my mom couldnt take it anymore and she went outside and started crying. I was confused and didnt know how i could help. Most of all she seemed non-responsive to me or to anything. I feel so frustrated right now. Frustrated and ineffectual.

john wayne crucifix

friday, worked, 2hr meeting with pres. turns out our accounting prgram has a form which will save us a $22k-33k rollout. after work steph and shawn and silvaniecame over and we then went to see jasper's band, JOHN WAYNE CRUCIFIX. it was too loud and peopley, we left. i started illustrating funkathrusta's story, here's the illu. yeha, hope to have that done by sunday.

john wayne crucifix doesnt have a website, if youa re looking for them. they play with the rum diary at times. the rum diary can be found here and they will be on a comp put out by substandard called "Translation. Music. 3." the cd relase for that is oct 4th 2003 @ the tenderloft i doubt you'll find me there.

worth looking at

props to cops. had a very strange entry in my logfile (i tail -f for entertainment) - - [12/Mar/2003:14:57:13 -0800] "GET /dmblog/ HTTP/1.0" 200 10938 "-" "obidos-bot (just looking for books.)"

im certainly glad i saw this. onfocus has feature bloat, but it is inventive and refreshing. very nice to see a blogger who doesnt merely modify a set-package. I have tried to get my 5 recent pictures from my gallery above my blog here. i failed but mebbe i need to solicit help, whether its O'reilly or O'Beggy in origin.

funny enough, onfocus creator and oreilly are both in sebastopol (20min drive(if that))

poor steph

we were supposed to go to the legionne today to se the poland thing. steph woke up too sick to go. this was a slight relief because i was tired of "going" for the weekend and sdidnt feel like burning my precious precious expensive petrol to drive there. 87 octane was $2.12~ last i bought and im gonna milk this tank for all that its worth. esp. now that cheney's company got the contract to scoop up iraq's oil.

holy crap

went to will's show @ roshambo, was ok. we were not cool enough to blend in. it looked like a juxtapoz magazine exploded in there. later on we went to smova for the auction. when we got there (when it opened) someon had scribbled a line on my bid form. so we finally figured out what had happened when we asked someone who worked there. i had valued the drawing @ $75, they upped it to $100 and someone "PBI" had bid on it (opening bid) for $375. this is the drawing i had in at the auctioni was pretty giddy. drank their wine, drank their coffee, ate their food as it goes. after that we drove back to my house and stepha nd silvaniewatched movies while shawn and i drew. we need to reinstitute drawing night.
