No Talking Tuesday # 61

The List:

all your controller talk made me realize i forgot
to tell you i'm leaving for s.f. tomorrow morning

i'll be back monday night

obscenley early

i'm taking a cab

some packages will likely arrive for me in the mean time
just bring them in

i would be worried that you would mistake
the boxes for recycling but since you never
take the recycling out it wouldn't matter

No Talking Tuesday # 60

This Tuesday found me stalking the halls of a Toys R Us. I thought it was blasphemous to my childhood that I should now live right near a Toys R Us (Which would have been something I would have only dared dream as a child) and that I've strayed so far from my roots, that I don't even care.

So I went in prepared to stock up on all the lost favorites of my childhood:
Don't Break the Ice, Connect Four, Monopoly, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Yo-Yo's, Jenga etc.

Like so many of my wistful adult expeditions to return to the glory days of my youth, I no longer saw the glittering bright, colorful towering isles of toys rush past me as I drove in a mini race car whipping around isles sending flustered soccer moms shrieking. Instead what I found was a cavernous, dimly lit warehouse full of licensed I.P's like Star Wars etc, and baby gear (strollers and whatnot), scaffolding and dusty tarps lightly muffling the sound of hammering and construction, apathetic employees slowly stalking the isles like necromancers roaming the wastelands.

Still, Toys R Us was always about content, not cosmetics. So I held out some vestige of faith appearances not withstanding. Until I found to my horror many of my favorite games have since been re-cast into some awful, often more curvy plastic laden, gaudy new design. And what wasn't malformed no longer existed.

Toys R Us does not carry Yo Yo's...

Truly the world has reached a low point I hadn't yet imagined possible.

The List:

It would be hilarious
if I made a rule
modification where
I could speak but
only like Beaker
with varying inflections
and tones of "me"

I think I may have left my
black back pack in the juice
bar yesterday. Has a
backpack turned up in the
lost and found?

One carrot/orange/apple
juice please - small

Now at 10
before at 9

I'm doing a new series

the things I draw to
present w/ the drawings

out a bunch of cool
d.s. games and loaded
on mine. Hopefully I'll
find the time to play them

I don’t know

Polaroid/Drawing Series

I’ve decided to get the most out of my dwindling supply of Polaroid film
by starting a new series where I take a Polaroid of the subject I have drawn.
Specifically the more refined brush pen/wash drawings I’ve been doing recently.
The idea being I present the drawing and Polaroid together.

The drawings are to be done in my sketchbook,
though I’m still trying to decide if I want to present them that way,
with the Polaroid pasted on the opposite page,
or to present them a little more deliberately.
I did a little experimentation with the first one in the series and tried both approaches:

No Talking Tuesday # 59

A historic night.
Obama becomes president and i'm forced to question my cynicism about America.
I wouldn't have thought America was ready for Obama, luckily I was proven wrong.

The List:

I think everyone should vote
it's the most important thing
we can do to make a difference
in our government

California is going to Obama for sure
so it's less dire than if I lived in
Ohio/Florida etc.

Also I believe everyone should vote
for who they think would make the
best president.
(regardless of party/who is in lead etc.)
which for me is Ron Paul,
which of course would
be pointless for me to vote for.

But mainly I'm uninformed
and rendered jaded by
behind curtain influence of
world banks, the ease of manipulated
voting fraud of electronic voting
machines etc.

Luckily I have the luxury of
living in California where people
have enough sense to not choose
to encourage the very real danger
of Palin becoming president
(if Mcain dies during term)

I thought it was just o.k.
until it opened up, then
I think it was good
I think your voice could
stand to be a little
smoother from that point on.

Oh hey i've been meaning to
ask you; one of my old books
has come apart (the outside
from the bound pages) would your
new found glue making skills
be of use to re-secure it?

The most straight foreword tea please

I oscillate between
libertarianism and
socialism. Both semi
extremes have very nice
outputs but both only
really work when done
uncompromised, which
isn't really realistic
