Viva Cuervo!

I will be entering this a lot. Simply cause it's so easy and a hoot. You should too. I just uploaded a drawing from college, Buh-Caw:
but I plan on doing a tequila related piece or two for it.

This has gotten me thinking about tequila at 10AM. Which I suggest you do often.

I kept forgetting to post this, so, instead of being asleep like I should be at this hour, I'm finally putting it up. Do click on the image to see detail.

This was a hand drawn character taken into Illustrator and traced. Then, I added texture and some other stuff (like her shadow) and ta-da! There she is. I love her dress.

I'm ready for...

iPod love.

Thursday, September 11, 2008 at 4:37 PM
So today I was looking for songs by Laura Love on my iPod and I discovered that I have 823 songs with the word, album, or artist including the word "love" in it. Since I never let things concerning my iPod rest, I decided to do a little math.

I have 13,169 songs total. This means if I calculate the percentage ("love" songs divided by all songs) then I get .0643177, or about 6.43%. That's a lot of love, considering everything you could possibly write about. My friend Carly has 1,343 "love" songs and 22,033 (Jesus!) songs total, which makes her love song percentage a pretty solid 6%.

Because I'm at work and bored to death, I decided to go a step further. "Love songs" don't necessarily have to have the word "love" in it, so I compiled a short list of words that are synonyms of love and how many are on my iPod:
  • passion- 30 songs
  • marry+marriage- 7+14=21
  • heart- 247 (I mean, christ, people- can a brotha get some original lyrics?)
  • romance- 10
  • sex (generalizing)- 58
  • erotic (again, generalizing)- 1 (can you guess which song this is?)
I of course went through and tacked on a "-1" for songs with more than one of these words in it, Frank Sinatra. Accounting for the Minuses, which were -52. So, 823+347-52. That leaves me with a total of 1,118 love related songs- of course, this is only by title, so I guess this would be uncreatively titled love related songs, right?

My iPod thusly has a 8.5% uncreatively titled love related song ratio. What does yours have?

Me: I'm thinking of buying a Vivienne Westwood shirt
Carin: a mens top?

Really, people? Am I that gay now that it's not hard to believe I'd wear women's clothing? Although, that dress does look pretty nice on Hong up there...

La vida es hermosa, y así que es NY

I found a blog this morning, we could grow up together, and the blogger's photographs make me want to move back to New York. Being in Manhattan in the summer is one of those rare experiences that is fantastic even if you have no money. Just walking around leaves you with memories as vivid as the image above, even if you don't have a camera.

Me: When life gives you lemons, you paint that shit gold.

Andy: When life gives you lemons, you eat a miracle berry and then eat the lemon
Andy: It is delicious

No, but really.
