I wanted to try my hand at painting, and I figured the first thing I should paint should be a logo for Random Art Wednesday. For those interested in such things, this is tempera paint on black canvas with a mix of tempera and acrylic for the letters.
If you’re like me, you’ve encountered more than one reason to segregate your dice on game night.
I stumbled on this little hack while messing with fidget toys.
The rectangle works just fine, but I prefer the diagonal corner configuration. It’s far more useful.
Faux + Lego = Legaux. Lego knockoffs were hard to come by back in the day, but you can get them anywhere now. These are from Dollar Tree, and the advantage over Lego is that I can buy all the green and red I need to make Christmas ornaments without blowing a whole paycheck on sets full of pieces I don’t want. And they’re cheap enough to give away as presents… which is exactly what I did! Click the pic and check out what I came up with. I’ve even included tips to help you build your own if you’d like. Ho ho ho!Continue reading “Dollar Tree Legaux Christmas Ornaments”

Quentin Baker absolutely killing it on bass. Me on lead vocals. Elden White on guitars, organ, percussion programming, and generally making Quentin and I look bad. All three of us screeching and hollering near the end. I’ve gotta say, I really fucking enjoy this song.
The inspiration, like most of the ridiculous/awesome things I do, was a girl. A girl overseas, stuck in the Netherlands where I couldn’t get to her. In a fit of childish petulance one day I blurted out, “You know what? Fuck the Netherlands.” As soon as I said it, the song started writing itself in my head. Since it was born of childishness, I decided to be as childish as possible and take advantage of every opportunity to be puerile the song offered. It was a love song with the word ‘Fuck’ in the title, so I decided to work the word into the lyrics as often as I could. 122 times. That’s gotta be some kind of record.
Then I decided the most childish thing to do would be to mock the Netherlands greatest accomplishments and historical figures, so I started doing research. It turns out the Netherlands has contributed an absolutely unimaginable number of awesome things to modern society. So much that I had to cut FOUR full verses out of the song because it was just too damned long. The Netherlands, much to my surprise, is pretty much an all around bad ass country. I had no idea. So I used their accomplishments against them, and that was pretty much that.
