Woo... art. Should have posted this earlier, but I've uploaded a bunch of my work from art class onto the intarwebs. I'd just link to the photo bucket album, but one of the pictures looks enough like me that I shouldn't post it, so here are a few samples:

(The last one wasn't actually a project, I just didn't in my spare time. The first was a super hero or villain project, the second a CD cover, I made the back too.)

I have recently rediscovered the joy of painting with actual paint...forget the computer, squidge that paint out of those tubes and splodge it around, it's fantastic.

Nope. The one that looks like me is actually traced from a photo so I don't think I should put it up. This one's just a character I've had for a while, or more specifically an evil makeover of the character.

HEY! I heard that!!! :annoyed:
In my case it would be a wine glass in my right hand and a cookie in the left.

Great talent you have there Ubi Kid!!!!!!!!!

[side note pretaining to using actual paints, I fear it's been so long since I've painted, most of my paints have dried out and my brushes have gone bald]

There's some superficial similarities. Pale skin, long hair (her real hair is brown, but has a little reddishness to it) and a bad attitude.

This is a drawing Ashley made about two years ago which she titled "Spheres", which she gave to me. I think it's really cool and I love showing it off! Also, she said she's going to knit/crochet me a Bellsprout, an Electrode, and a Chain Chomp! I can't wait! I love her so much!

As for the drawing, we want to release it under a free license. Right now it's under regular copyright, but she said she wants people to be able to share it and use it for free, as long as they give her credit, it's used noncommercially, and derivative works are under the same license. Also, she wants people to be able to distribute it with CDs, Linux distros, etc. as long as they don't charge more than reproduction costs. Would the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial Share Alike license cover all that? My friend says he's not sure if the Non Commercial part would prohibit the inclusion in collection CDs, so that's why I'm asking.

I watched Logan's Run the other night and it inspired me to write this song about Jenny Agutter:

Jenny Agutter Song

I watched a film
Called Logan's Run
Dystopian vision of the future
It was so much fun

Suddenly a woman
Appeared on my screen
Her clothes were so skimpy
It made me scream

Her body so sexy,
Her face so meek
I watched the film again
Only next week

Now I'm not much of a science geek
I don't read New Scientist every week
But I’m going to invent time travel
Just to see Jenny Agutter’s clothes unravel

OOOOOH Jenny Agutter
You make my heart flutter
You make my voice stutter
You're from another world
OOOOOH Jenny Agutter
Your outfits are flimsy
Bordering on the skimpy
They're almost bound to get torn

I had a dream
Late last night
Chased by a Werewolf
It was a terrible fright

But as I ran
I wasn't alone in my curse
For with me was Jenny
Dressed up as a nurse

Her body so sexy
Her face so meek
Her Skirt so short
I glimpsed a bit of cheek

Now I'm in love
With this starlet from heaven
It's just a shame
she's nearly an Octogenarian

OOOOOH Jenny Agutter
You make my heart flutter
You make my voice stutter
You're from another world
OOOOOH Jenny Agutter
Your outfits are flimsy
Bordering on the skimpy
They're almost bound to get torn

**********************************************************

Sadly someone else has had a go:

Jenny Agutter Song
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

I already posted this in Odd Bits, but here's my crappy troll science comic I banged out in 10 minutes in photoshop.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré
