I'm basically finished with this poster (11x17) until they give me the final phone number and any comments/critiques/criticisms.  See for yourself.

Ethan wanted to play Baldur's Gate II as a drow, so he asked me to Photoshop him a custom portrait for his game.  Ta-dah!

1 - Go to wikipedia, on "random":
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. I got Danco Island.

2 - Go to Random Quotations:
The last three or four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. I got "Nothing is easy to the unwilling." - Nikki Giovanni

3 - Go to flickr and click on "explore the last seven days":
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to mix it all up. Post it.

And here you have it, my album:
jackshoegazer: (Jack/Glasses)
Jacquelyn is at book club and Ethan is hunting through Halo2 for The Golden Warthog.  I'm trying to relax, but feel like I should be working, which is odd, since it's usually Jacquelyn who can't relax when there's nothing to do, and I who has no problem relaxing.

I've gotten as much work done on my drama project as I can.  The PowerPoint is almost done, the script is pretty much done.  (Here is the first slide.)  We have one more meeting, tomorrow evening, to make any changes, add anything, rehearse the timing and slide cues.  One of our members, Ben, still hasn't done anything or shown up for a single meeting.  I should feel a little sorry for him; he's a paranoid schizophrenic (for reelz, yo), obviously smokes too much pot, and is unable to afford the book for the class (or any other class from what he says), but shite man, we reached out and basically did everything else.  All he had to do was a little research and show up.

Otherwise, it should be fine.  I'm a little nervous about the presentation, well, actually just the in-front-of-everyone-acting part.  The easy bit is that I'm playing myself and I feel pretty comfortable with my other group members.  Steven and Greg are especially intelligent and funny.  I would even hang out with them outside of class if such a thing presented itself.  Imagine that.

On Friday night, [personal profile] brdgt and [profile] strangedasein came over for dinner.  Bridget brought an excellent ziti (/drool) and Jacquelyn made a salad with arugula, garbanzos,  red peppers, a special dressing, and much yumminess I can't accurately describe. (Probably because there was quite a bit of wine flowing at that point.)  I had a really great talk with Joel about.. umm, well, stuff.  Important self-knowledge, place-in-the-universe stuff.  It's sometimes a challenge to find a common vocabulary since Joel has approached what I will loosely define as The Mysteries from a philosophical perspective, while I've tackled it through a sort of psychological/spiritual lens.  It's nice to have someone I can talk to about these things; this spot in my life has been vacant for a while now.  I will definitely be picking up some more philosophy, especially Nietzsche, very soon.  My philosophical teachings have been very limited, mostly obtained by references through other writers.

Tomorrow morning, I have my follow-up for my wisdom teeth removal and a cleaning.  Afterwards I have to write an extra credit paper for psychology on Orwell's 1984, then work some more on the drama project, and eventually head uptown to Michaelangelo's for the rehearsal.  I think I have some "wimmin's work" to do in there somewhere as well.  Egads, when did I get so busy?

Playwright Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize in 2005.  This is the transcript of his acceptance speech.  It is chilling and beautiful and true.  It is your duty as a citizen, as a human, to read this.

I was doing some internetting and miscellaneous esoteric perusing and realized that my four main intellectual, psychological, and spiritual influences are bald white dudes.  Thus, I couldn't help myself but to make:

The first seven people to respond to this post, will get some form of art, by me. I make no guarantees about quality, type, or timely delivery but I will assure that I will give it good effort.

The only catch, of course; as with most memes, if you sign up, you have to put this in your own journal as well.


I've upped it to SEVEN.  We're at six as of 4:24pm CST, so I have room for one more.


Ok, we're full up!

New on my profile page...  Thanks to everyone who submitted quotes for the "back cover."

jackshoegazer: (Kermit Betta Recognize)
In physics, a quantum (plural: quanta) refers to an indivisible and perhaps elementary entity. For instance, a "light quantum", being a unit of light (that is, a photon). In combinations like "quantum mechanics", "quantum optics", etc., it distinguishes a more specialized field of study.

The word comes from the Latin "quantus", for "how much".

Behind this, one finds the fundamental notion that a physical property may be "quantized", referred to as "quantization". This means that the magnitude can take on only certain numerical values, rather than any value, at least within a range. For example, the energy of an electron bound to an atom (at rest) is quantized. This accounts for the stability of atoms, and matter in general. But it cannot begin to account for the update I just did for the [community profile] iconomicon.

An entirely new conceptual framework was developed around this idea, during the first half of the 1900s. Usually referred to as quantum "mechanics", it is regarded by virtually every professional physicist as the most fundamental framework we have for understanding and describing nature, for the very practical reason that it works. It is "in the nature of things", not a more or less arbitrary human preference.
jackshoegazer: (Aboriginal)
Beneath the altar in the temple of Jerusalem there was believed to be a passage which led down to the abyss of the world, where the foundation-stone of the earth was laid. In rabbinical cosmography the abyss is a region of Gehenna situated below the ocean bed and divided into three or seven parts imposed one above the other. In the Kabbalah the abyss as the opening into the lower world is the abode of evil spirits, and corresponds to the opening of the abyss to the world above. In general the abyss is regarded vaguely as a place of indefinite extent, the abode of mystery and sorrow, and sometimes I update the [community profile] iconomicon.

Jacquelyn is going Friends-Only for various personal and professional reasons and requested a friends-only banner made to look like a book jacket.  This here is the result.  Feast your eyes, but not too much, for my rich graphics are high in sugar and fats and I don't want you to get obese eyeballs.

jackshoegazer: (This Icon Was STOLEN)
No one was quite sure just how old their monk was, for he was the Castle's unofficial historian, and did not tell of himself what he cheerfully reported about others, but he did update the [livejournal.com profile] iconomicon.
jackshoegazer: (Calvin & Hobbes Laugh)
For decades, two heroic statues, one male and one female, faced each other in a city park, until one day an angel came down from heaven.

"You've been such exemplary statues," he announced to them, "That I'm going to give you a special gift. I'm going to bring you both to life for thirty minutes, in which you can do anything you want." And with a clap of his hands, the angel brought the statues to life.

The two approached each other a bit shyly, but soon dashed for the bushes, from which shortly emerged a good deal of giggling, laughter, and shaking of branches. Fifteen minutes later, the two statues emerged from the bushes, wide grins on their faces.

"You still have fifteen more minutes," said the angel, winking at them.

Grinning even more widely the female statue turned to the male statue and said, "Great! Only this time you hold the pigeon down and I'll crap on it's head."
This joke has been brought to you by the [community profile] iconomicon, which just got updated.

A man walks into a bank, and after waiting for 20 minutes in line, he goes straight to a customer service rep. and says, "Hey, lady, I got this here check for deposit and I'll be goddamned if I am going to wait my ass on line anymore."

"Please", says the woman. "I won't have that kind of language in this bank."

"Well excuse me, but this fuckin' check ain't drawing any goddamned interest with you yappin' away about my language."

"Sir, I don't have to take this abuse" she says.

"Well then let's get the fuckin' manager okay? I mean what kind of shit is this I have to take from you?"

The manager is summoned, and says "What seems to be the problem?"

The woman says, "This man is using vulgar language and I won't stand for it."

The man says "Hey alls I'm trying to do in this goddamned bank, for Christ's sake is deposit this fuckin' check for 15 million dollars."

The manager looks at the check and then at the man and says "And this fuckin' bitch won't help you?"
