I am trying to get away from using a pencil and paper for my art projects. There are many tools for the artist out there like the iPad, Surface and Dell XPS 18. Now along comes the Adobe “Project Mighty” connected pen. This pen might just revolutionize the way we jot down our ideas and expand upon them. The future is not quite here, we will have to wait a bit more. I will get in line for one of these pens. I will miss my pencil sharpener.
When you need subtitles on shows where English is the first language of the person in North America, you have to conclude that there are may many dialects of English. Linguist Rick Aschmann amassed information on North American English dialects, based on pronunciation patterns. This is a hobby of his and with careful analysis of his site, one can get some interesting data of the movement and history of the people who migrated to those areas. If you are into linguistic history and culture this site is a wealth of information.
“This is just a hobby of mine, that I thought might be interesting to a lot of people. Some people collect stamps. Others collect coins. I collect dialects.”
George Carlin the romantic? Here is an example of a love letter written to his wife (Sally Wade aka SALLYBURGER). And who said comedians were not were not lovers. George’s stuff might not be Hallmark material but this is as classic as any man’s love a woman.
If you took THE NUMBER OF SUB-ATOMIC PARTICLES IN THE UNIVERSE and multiplied that number times itself THAT MANY TIMES; and then added the total number of MICRO-SECONDS since the beginning of time, times itself; and then added 803—you would STILL have only the tiniest fraction of A BILLION-BILLIONTH PER CENT of the amount of love I HAVE FOR YOU.
your candle partner,
the romantic Mr Carlin,
your eternal flame.
Here is a hairdo that the Jolly Green Giant and Little Sprout would be proud of. The ripe tomato hairdo is hot in Japan, it will take a bit of time before it will ketchup in America.
“The style is called “Ripe Tomato” (“kanjuku tomato” or ?????). It was done by a stylist named “Hiro” at an Osaka salon called “Trick Store”, which is located the city’s hipster youth district, Amemura.”
Everybody has a Paradox dog at one time or another. Matthew Inman’s unique dog Paradox tale garnered over 700 000 likes on Facebook. If you fell for his feline escapades of, How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You, then you will fall in love with Paradox. Being a dog lover myself, I found the hilarity of Paradox to be true to my own two dogs. My Dog: The Paradox: A Lovable Discourse about Man’s Best Friend will a great addition to any book collection. Matthew Inman is the Charles M. Schulz of the 21st century.
“We will never know why dogs fear hair dryers, or being baited into staring contests with cats, but as Inman explains, perhaps we love dogs so much “because their lives aren’t lengthy, logical, or deliberate, but an explosive paradox composed of fur, teeth, and enthusiasm.”

Pete Goldlust loves to carve pencils. I love the intricacies of his designs. The only thing I could do with a crayon and a sharp blade is get a wasted Sunday afternoon in the emergency with paper towel paper wrapped around a bleeding finger or two. I will leave such tasks to experienced individuals. My thumb is still throbbing from my last mishap. Somewhere in Vancouver there is a totem pole wishing it was blinged out like these carvings.
Talk about a blatant rip off. Awful Animals is copying the success of the Ugly Dolls line. This is what happens when your products are made in China. Manufacturers will knockoff your product at a lower cost. Imitation might be a form of flattery, but this is ridiculous. I can hear Kevin O’Leary leering in my thoughts about mass producing products such as this in China without proper copyright. At one tenth of the cost of an Ugly Doll, the Awful Animals seem like a bargain. This is awful!

Google Doodle celebrates Edward Gorey’s 88th birthday if he were alive today. He checked out in the year 2000.
“Fifty years ago, in 1963, Edward Gorey published a trio of books in an olive-colored, hand-lettered slipcase entitled ‘The Vinegar Works: Three Volumes of Moral Instruction’. The three books were ‘The Insect God’, ‘The West Wing’, and ‘The Gashlycrumb Tinies’. All three books would eventually define Gorey’s style, and ‘The Gashlycrumb Tinies’ became his most enduring work.”
