I just wanted to make sure that everyone was aware that the JT3 has offered up another free song in their recent post: JT3 performs “I Am The Walrus”

The tune rocks, and if you're somehow not yet familiar with the boys, and you want to hear them in the context of a tune you already know - here's your chance.

Friday night, [personal profile] xtingu and myself are going to take time off from the crazy busy doing-stuff-for/on-the-house schedule we've been working to check out something that I can guaranteeeee will be more than worth it:



The Joe Trainor Trio
joe.TRAINOR (piano, vocals)
kevin.NIEMI (bass)
Mike.DOROFF (drums)

Friday, November 16th
Kid Shelleens
1801 W. 14th Street
Wilmington, Delaware


NO COVER...Starts at 9.30pm.

An evening of original music with a few surprises thrown in for fun.

I would love to see some of you there! (And if it's any of you that I haven't met in real life, feel free to introduce yourself!)

Oh, and while I'm not promising anything - as an added incentive, I may just have my sketchbook with me. If I do? I may just be doing free portraits/caricatures. Maybe.

I'm looking for reviews and information on a couple different things and I'm just wondering where the other tech savvy people in my life go for such things. I know that [livejournal.com profile] boutell was using consumer reports - which is arguably one of the best, but I'm cheap and was looking to do this for free. Any recommendations?

The items I'm looking for are:
Antivirus software (other than Norton or McAffee - since they both consume entirely too many resources for me to be happy about using them...

...and a tablet PC. I'm just shopping at this point and I know that there's a whole new architecture on it's way in the spring, so I'm not soopah likely to buy right now, but I thought that I should learn a little more about what's out there - and you just never know.

Melange Lavonne's video: Gay Bash.

I like the tune. The lyrics are a bit... well, to be honest I think that they're a little unpolished. However, the message is strong and good, and I think that it bears repeating, so I'm posting it here. Thanks to the goodly one who pointed it out.



Next there's the Craigslist Postings for Free Artwork. The following link takes you to something that some of the artist-for-hire crowd are touting as 'great' and 'must reads'. I can't say that I claim the same. I agree that the concept is good and valid. I agree that 'spec work' prepares us all for anal probing of the highest order, but I think that the rant is just that - it's a rant. It has the same kind of blind-faith 'data' that accompanies every AOHELL forward I've ever thrown in my virtual trash bin. I'm pretty sure that it might be just the same sort of 'email gathering bullshit' that they are. So why am I passing it on? Because I expect all of you to be smart enough to not give any information to folks through something like this.

I might just have to write a paraphrased document with some legitimate information. Something that shows illustrators and the like as something more than a bunch of zealots - misguided as well as misunderstood.

So while I'm on the subject of newbs and the intarwebs - I've been thinking. I've been thinking that [personal profile] boutell  's amazing web faq is a great thing and should be promoted. I wish more people would look through the vast array of information there (and elsewhere) on the web and just plain educate themselves. It's really not tough people.

I am currently of the opinion that Facebook is the shit. All of the (worthwhile) shit that basic myspace does (ie- not the music/comedy sections) and more without all the teeny bopper 'look at my annoying animations and bullshit sound files' crap. Just information, comments, groups, and pictures. Data. Good solid data. And the ability to share it. Novel concept that. The closest I would get to complaining about facebook is that it seems like it was built by really slick programmers who could use a hand in the interface design department - but I'll take quality over flashy packaging any day.

So you've probably all forgotten the little experiment that I started back in February.



Well I didn't. It was driving me nuts that I never did finish the portraits that I had promised. I had plenty of steam to do an hour on [livejournal.com profile] lafemmekatia's image.



I slowed down a bit and lost a bit of drive while working on [livejournal.com profile] theseitz's image of Rodney Dangerfield. I sucked it up and worked on him for a little over 1/2 hour. Poor Rodney. You've looked better buddy.



I have just finished (at long last) the image I promised for [livejournal.com profile] anisette_toast. I actually found this one coming together fairly quickly. There was a lot going on here tonight, and while I would think that should be an 'excuse' for why the image didn't turn out the way I wanted, it actually seemed to be the reverse. In just 1/2 hour (ok - maybe a touch more) I felt comfortable calling it a night.

I never would have put the number this high, and I'm not too sure about the method that they use to get their numbers, but it was fun anyway.

It has nothing to do with the fact that it made me feel like someone's paying attention. Nothing at all...

Ganked this from [livejournal.com profile] kevin_b's journal and wanted a copy in my own to add it to my memories. Without further ado:
