Icon Meme

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than twenty icons, post them all. If you have between twenty and fifty icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, and what significance it has.

Well.. back in a bit. Must go outside in the dark to try and find a dark messenger bag. Wish me luck.

New albums, and some wallpapers I drew.

Well.. first... the albums. I love Jill Tracy, and if you like Amanda Palmer, The Dresden Dolls, Voltaire, or Nicki Jaine, you'll probably like Jill Tracy too. Until Halloween, her album Into the Land of Phantoms is on sale at CDBaby for 9.99 for the disk, or 8.99 for the MP3 version. At 125 Records you can get a signed copy of The Bittersweet Constrain and an unsigned copy Into the Land of Phantoms for 23 dollars. Which is what I got. I had bought The Bittersweet Constrain off itunes the day it came out, and knew I wanted a physical copy of it. This is the first song off that album.
Into the Land of Phantoms is a score composed for the 1922 film Nosferatu and is all instrumental, it's lovely, haunting, and just a bit creepy. A great album for Halloween. Since Nosferatu is available for download and public domain, you could download it and show it with the album playing. Which is kind of what I plan to do.
I drew some wallpapers last week if anyone is interested.
This Little Light of Mine Playing with some text effects.
The wonder of it all Just messing around, but E really likes how this one turned out.
Peace symbol I realized I hadn't drawn a vector peace symbol yet. How silly is that? Fixed now. I have one in vector format and did this with it. Blues and greens
Peace symbol 2 Same thing, just a bit greener.
All images are 1280x1024.
Just for fun, I animated the peace symbol into a small tag.


Well.. I posted about Mike's missing bag on craigslist. And I'm going to make up a couple reward flyers to post in the neighborhood.
Truth is.. if you knew me 15 years ago when I was making mix tapes.. Jill Tracy is one I would so put on the mix tape that got the most circulation. If you knew me way back then, you might remember the one I'm talking about? It had The Tattooed Rose and Bright Lights/Black Leather on it?

Duct tape, ipods, and creative children

Yesterday, I hollered at Mike when he crumpled up gold shiny foil from chocolate to throw away. He knows better. Today, E told me it was a good thing she had gold foil paper from chocolate.

We walked up to the yarn shop where I spent entirely too much on yarn, but I also picked up some roving for the wet felting she wanted to try. The problem is.. I'm not sure if I need to pick up Dawn. I use Myers or Bi-o-kleen dishsoap because they don't make my hands break out. There's a spinning class at the museum next month I need to look into.
