      FWIW- I work in construction design, and some of the most infuriating customers by far are engineers that draw their own plans.

      Rocky 2 isn't bad. 1 and 4 are kinda the pinnacle of those movies. Creed is a pretty good continuation of the series, and I'm likely gonna rent Creed 2 on PSN next time I'm in the mood for a movie.

      edit

      Either that, or the DBS Broly movie.

      More replacements flew into the office from Dallas this week, ready to pull my hair out.

      Next Friday is the last day.

      Can we talk about peanut butter crackers? We would get my little dude Austin PB crackers as a school snack, they were delicious, nice and crispy with sweet PB. Then they changed from round crackers to square and it totally ruined them. Less crispy and less PB to surface area. So we had stopped buying them until yesterday when I bought him Ritz ones with a round cracker, 1000% better.

      so TLDR, round cracker good, square cracker bad.

      Funny you say that, I sorta settled into that kind of art in high school. I wasn't doing tribal tattoos, just, solid color shapes that kinda wrapped around like that and a lot of people said "Oh I'd get that tattoo'd on me!"

      I'm glad to see a few people are receptive to it, because I don't think this is art that needs to be explained, nor does anyone have to be special to "get" it. I think if you're 8 years old, or 98 years old, you can enjoy some aspect of my work.

      Plus, it's all based off of music. Each piece is actually 1-2 albums worth of me just listening and painting without any real plan.

      I'm reading more and more on current fine artists and man...their manifestos, or bios, or whatever are just SO obnoxious. "Jills work explores the space between the mutable relationships between space and the space between human space"

      Well, good for Jill.

      Yes, it is. It has no rips or anything but is very dirty.

      Not my problem anymore.

      Art:

      fun part of it is it's not even an original...the orig was "lost" and by lost used by the maintenance guy to shovel the walk and never returned.

      Yeah. What the hell does that even mean? I dislike most art because the artists are highfalutin windbags who think they're better than everyone else because they're artists.

      I'll take your art and point of view 10x over.
