@jjg I found "Better Off Dead" in case you want to borrow?
Rant on the state of things
There are so many uppity motherfuckers with misinformation who want to spit on science right now it's maddening. And I might be raw considering my friends are mourning the loss of a great human being and friend. And I know what that's like. I've buried too many friends already. And I don't have time for people's "vaccines bad blah blah" bullshit. I'm done. I'm tired of it too, but mostly tired of them, their uppity fucking shit... All of it. It's exhausting.
After some success with the Tom Servo pic, I decided to do glassware and other still life on black background. I'm still working from internet search pics ... Soon I hope to get one of our black sheets set up, put a still life up and light it with a clamp light, because I'm ghetto in my lighting style.
How are we holding it together here in Neuromantics land? I've been working on art, something that was spurned by seeing both @JasonTiffany and Jamie's Facebook posts about. A visit to Beyond Van Gogh and an incredulous look from my longtime BFF Stephanie has got me moving again. (She literally said "don't worry about the outcome get back into the process." I said I was overthinking my skill and we all know that is hogwash).
My brilliant idea was to learn to draw on black paper. Sketches to come
I took a stray cat in to the humane society, and called about him today. Turns out he was sick, and is feeling better now thanks to being brought in. If anyone needs a pick me up today. I certainly did. In other news the silly kitty I found outside and helped out that now lives with me has taken indoor catting to a pro level. Not only does he trip me, refuse to move if I'm setting down groceries, demand pets while I sleep, he also snores loudly while snoozing on the couch.
@jjg sorry to hear of your uncle's passing. I was at the service yesterday. My dad was one of his good friends.
Something that's taken up my time has been my "help the outdoor cats" project I've been doing since January. The first cat I captured, well he's living in our house with us. The second, an all white kitty, goes to adopters tomorrow. Putting a little good out in the world, after seeing so much sadness, grief, anger, and just plain horribleness. Gray cat "Patches" in our home, white cat "Louie" who is going to his new home tomorrow.
I should clarify it's my friends kid who passed away. It still cuts my soul in half.
Jumping off the work from home theme, this pandemic is utter shit for people. The death of a child still unexplained, humans are utter bullshit about courtesy to each other... Working from home is straining relationships, and there's so much negative in the air.
I started doing things like sending cards to shut ins and taking care of some community cats wandering my neighborhood.
The first one I trapped to get neutered and vaccinated/parasite care died of cardiac arrest.
Send joy, please
Getting a 'worthless' journalism bachelor's in my 40s because I do what I want.
People who like to think about what they talk about.
