It's Hard to Imagine That Nothing At All Could Be So Exciting, Could Be So Much Fun

Here is yet another post from me this weekend. I really am trying to make them short. Right now I'm doing the Saturday Scavenger Hunt pics. The word this week was paper. I thought I'd again bring up the fact that two years ago I promised to do a little multi-media piece of this photo I took of Coadster at the Bloomington St. laundromat when she was seven or eight. Of course, she was unhappy to be at the laundromat (like we all are) and didn't like getting her photo taken - giving her the perfect attitude for this picture.

Part of what I was going to do with the piece, was paint the background on a canvas, but using the beautiful seventies orange and gold of the dryers, instead of the black and white of the photo. Then I was going to use some awesome paper my friend Sara helped me buy to draw Coadster cartoon-style in black ink over the white paper and paste it over the dryers. This photo here, is one of the experiments I did when my friend Sara was showing me how to work with ink and handmade paper.

So, even though I've been drawing different cartoon versions of Coadster and planning that damn thing out, I still haven't actually finished it. Maybe once I'm done smoking the most addictive Japanese crack that is Beautiful Katamari. If there was any way I could shoot a video game into my veins, even at the risk of losing everything that I hold dear, I would do it for Beautiful Katamari. From what I hear, having a real life is highly overrated anyway.

First of all let me just say that Fear of Music is one of my favorite albums also containing a song called Paper. So there.

Secondly - holy crap do I love that friggin' game. It's so very addictive and pretty pretty pretty.
I hear that music in my sleep.

Also the word verication I have today says TVTV - so that's what I'm going to go do.

Lady,

I know. I'm seriously going to need to enter a 12 step program to kick me of that jones.

Evil-E,
