Back from the brink it does appear. I have a mess of stuff to update you on. And I also got some spankin’ new farm pix for you to gawk at.

Note the rustic look in above photo. The old farm house was in it’s death throws with it’s electricity and wireing, even worse the the big surge a few weeks earlier. We enlisted the one of the best electritions in the area, just in time as it really began going to pot. No good light to see to shave, etc.

Changing a breaker was beyond what was needed it turns out. A few decades of incompitent wireing and most of our outlets needing replaced. This computer even stopped working, turns out just not enough current was going to it.. too many room going onto one breaker didn’t help things either. Mind you our stress was at full tilt.

The man who worked on the house, last week, was on “Rockstar” of a electritian. He was confident “Don’t worry we’re gonna figure it out”. He works with his wife, and older couple well into their 50’s. Replacing the faulty light fixture in the main dining room during a tornado warning, with the braker is still HOT, isn’t “Rockstar” status, then I don’t know, what is? He then rushes out during that and the flood, and get washed away, figuring he could run to town to get a part at Lows.

We’re lucking to be on high ground, the floods here in Tennessee, this weekend are ledgendary. I think a few roads may still be out.

I heard that the Cumberland river levy broke and flooded the Grand Ol Opery Hotel, in Nashville, even. A friend let a flood victem stay at her house, while she is working in Iraq.

During all of this I recived my own donation, in the form of a second work computer, from my “High Buddies” partner Jason Mainella, of Spliff Tube and Xsessive Designs out of Montral, CA. new Wacom Bamboo tablet to boot and chalk full of CS4 Adobe software.I’ll chalk it up to good Karma, from when I donated a friend a extra PC, last year. I’m very behind in projects, never mind the web comic strip, this so helps me out.

Thanks to who all called me up to check on me during my “Technology Sabatical”. I’ll post the sketches I made to keep myself sane during all of this ordeal.

Oh, other good news I learned today is the return of Madhouse Radio Forums! is MH Live to far behind? Getting my high speed is next on list.. right after a hair cut.

Recap and Intropection

May 14, 2009

I’m fighting with myself about just how much I should share with what goes on off the interweb here. you know the privite life that has nothing to do this the art or the things related to it. You people like the farm photos, but I ponder with how I should make public when it comes to family events like birthdays, graduations, holidays and the so on. A lot of that has been going on that has divided my attention the past week or so. I make a picture journal, with the intent of how I’d present it in a blog entry at the time. Yet… I catch myself that I don’t want to pull my family and privite life into the blogs of your.. that nobody will find interest in anyway. Everybody’s facebook and twitter account is bad enough. I get a little parinoid too.

Bottom line is, I want to keep this site focused on the public art and this buisiness goings on. I should keep the personal relationship drama out?
Am I shooting myself in the foot by even bringing it up her in the first place? .. yes..

There are things bubbling art wise.. though alot of crazy stuff, I’m not yet ready to reveal yet. I mean it’s all good . And do find myself putting it ahead of everybody else to a point. I’ve always been that way.

Anyhoo.. enjoy the fun videos.. the comics.. the Dr. Who and other crazy art and country pix.. ok?… cool! laters on!

A visit from the Tribe!

January 4, 2009

100_1021-1Tequila Joe’s in Jackson housed the big show with Muck Sticky and local favorite Taco & Da Mofo’s on Jan. 2 2009. I took my reclusive non ass out there and had my first person to person meeting with Muck and the Sticky Tribe.

me-muck-momma

Momma Sticky, Wood, Muck and even Cookie, really made me feel like they were more excited to meet me, even more then I was to meet them. It is true everyone is crazy over the “Stay Lifted” comic. Muck and I know that we have to get out gears in gear and go back to work on producing more as soon as possible. The out pouring of the feedback in the past few days has been amazing!

100_1036-1I guess everybody got the psychic memo to wear black. Look Cookie is their biggest fan!

The good times crunk could be right down and dirty.

April 22 1923 – Dec 11 2008

With deep personal sadness I must announce that my dear friend and client Bettie Page passed away at 6:41pm PST this evening in a Los Angeles hospital. She died peacefully but had never regained consciousness after suffering a heart attack nine days ago.

She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality. She is the embodiment of beauty.

SPOILER ALERT : Supposedly this is Bettie at 80… strange it was posted somewhere, being that there was such a mystique about wanting to be photographed in her later years.
(Sorry for the nudity but there is nothing offensive about this dames body!)
