General Update

Well, it’s been over a week so I suppose I should post something. Don’t want to get into the political side of things too much… but let’s just say that I told myself I would only drink last Tuesday to numb the pain of a particular VP nominee getting elected… and I remained sober through the evening. Nothing against McCain. I like him actually. But I LOVE Obama and what he has to say… and Palen is evil. Biden Kicks Ass.

Ok, enough of that.

Went to the Gene Autry Museum weekend before last to see my sister-in-law in a play entitled Salvage. If you are in the LA area I highly recommend that you check it out. It’s the tragic story of a family living on an Indian reservation and what happens when they get caught in a “Rez War”. As well, you have a lot of internal conflict. Religion vs. Reality, The Old Ways vs. The New. Honestly, I was expecting some cheesy message about how we need to “go back to nature” and “be one w/ Mother Earth” but that wasn’t in it at all. Josh pointed out that it seemed to be about the author’s own struggle with her personal faith and her own doubts about religion. Again, excellent play.

Art News:
Finished the next piece in my “Joy of Sex 2150” Book and almost immediately launched into the next. I am having so much fun drawing these. I can’t wait to move on to the next and the next… Wishing I could work on it right this very moment.. but I can’t. Hopefully this evening… if I’m not working on “another” project. (wink)

And finally, the geek moment:
I bought my GLaDOS shirt last night from Valve. I am so excited. I can’t wait to get it!!! EEEEE!!! Yes, in case you haven’t noticed, I’m a bit obsessed with robots at the moment. During my lunch break at work I’ve been looking up pictures, reading books about them (got Philip K. Dick on my list of books to read next.) Looking at my Sorayama book at home, making a compilation of songs that I know of / have that predominately feature a synthesized voice and are about robots. I can’t get enough and it’s wonderful!!
