(Live from RRC William/Princess Campus Library) I really don't need to be here. I'm done for the day. This place is too damn comfy. I need to start hating this place. I figure that'll kick in when I'm actually doing a full schedule of classes. We'll see!

Do yourself a favour and pick up a volume(or two!) of American Illustration from your local library(or buy one...It's worth it, I think). Some of the best talent that illustration has to offer is collected in these books. Breathtaking and inspirational work in every one.

Did I mention that RRC's Graphic Design program has some really hot girls? No? Well, now you know.

I messed up on that last post. I was trying to show you the site of this jerk. Yeah, I know. Freedom of speech. That doesn't mean I have to like what I hear(or in this case, waste time reading).

(Live from RRC's Mac Lab) I missed Graphic Design class due to a scheduling fuck-up. Not happy.

(Live from Centennial Library)Checking in from the library sux. The terminals(most of them, it seems)are filtered by the Bess system. That means, I can't visit sites like, or any of my usual message board haunts. I'm gonna try to use the school's computers as much as I can from now on.
For school purposes, of course. Ahem.
Anyway, yes, I'm back at school. It feels good. But that's probably my day off talking(Tuesdays until the end of March!). At any rate, I still have work to do(sketchbook studies of strangers in common places)...later y'all.

(Live from Sarah's House)
What up, y'all? Howgozit by you? Good, I hope. Disconnected the web at home. Feels good. Just got back from Montana's, my favourite chain restaurant. I'm pleasantly full. Living there would be heaven on earth...I'd wake up to the smell of rotisserie chicken every day! The only thing better than that would be waking up to be greeted by a harem. And the smell of rotisserie chicken.

Mr. Lif has definitely become one of my favorite emcees.I Phantom is an incredible album, and is so far getting better with each listen. The concept behind this album is clever, too. And if you're having problems following along, Lif breaks it down track by track in the liner notes(reading is fundamental, yo.). Right now, I'm listening to "Live From the Plantation", which every wage slave can relate to(with dope prodution by Edan). The one big surprise of this album is producer/emcee Insight. I've never heard of this kid before, but I'm loving what I'm hearing now! He rhymes on two of the track he produced, "Status" and "Iron Helix". On the first, he gives an account of Lif being thrown out of a club, and comes with a relaxed flow. But on the second, he's filled with passion as a "primitive" being corrupted by Lif as an evil spirit of some sort. That track is ill...and brilliant. The following track, also produced by Insight, entitled "Earthcrusher" is a frightening look at a nuclear holocaust. It's kinda chilling, since we haven't been this close to nuclear fuckery since the Cold War. I have faith that cooler heads will prevail, but it still makes you think. I'm gonna be looking out for Insight in the future, f'real.
Highly recommended.

Happy New Year, y'all! Yeah, I'm still connected at home. I'm a hopeless addict. But never mind me, check Tirades by Ronnie..."Ronnie" being the super-talented Ronnie del Carmen. Damn it, I'm sick of being jealous of other artists! It's a new year for fuck's sake! I'm gonna storm outta the room!

(storms out of room)

(sheepishly returns to computer)

Sorry. Do yourself a favour an check his blog, and his portfolio site(which is right here). The New Year's turkey has made me tired...and pissy. Later.
