I’m going through and organizing old videos and photos from phones and cameras of year’s past. One of the first stylus type touchscreens I owned afforded my girlfriend the opportunity to doodle and save the image. Check out some of them.
Recently I drove downtown to check out the local Dick Blick art store. I’ve always liked going to art supply stores. The mix of potential and inspiration swirling around with the rewards of consumerism. It’s a good mix. I picked up a new sketchbook because they were half priced but this new one pushes me out of my comfort zone. I’ve stuck to a 4″ x 6″ hardbound sketchbook since my freshman year of college but the price of this full size 8.5″ x 11″ hardbound was too good to pass up. The only problem is I’ve never liked drawing bigger sketches so I’ve let it sit for a while. To try to kickstart some inspiration I’ve been going through and organizing all the different…
If this weren’t California this stuff would be even stronger!
To all of those people who said I waste too much time on facebook, I have a guide to punching them in the face and dropping an elbow lock on them. I responded to some code thing and they sent over this sweet little 2011 collection of top fights and behind the scenes stuff from UFC. It’s cool because it’s a pre-release and was free ninety nine. Let the Brodown begin!
I’ve been in a solid relationship for so long my bachelor instincts are all but gone. Don’t get me wrong. I’m still a virile young buck; I’ll catcall women until my throat is hoarse and bloody. I just don’t really remember all those simple 30 second microwave recipes I used to survive on. These days if my girlfriend is away I just stare at my pantry and fridge and wonder what madman invented so many close-to-but-not edible products.
Recently I took the girlfriend out to see a movie. If you’ve ever heard me talk about movie theaters you’re well aware I can’t stand them. We chose a relatively small theater well away from any major college and tucked in a strip mall. The idea was to try to find something outside of the radius of bored people and closer to moms who would complain about messy seats or bad projectors. It paid off and the overall experience was tolerable. We decided to check out Drive. Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring a pretty cool cast: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman, Oscar Isaac, and Albert Brooks. I was pretty excited to see another Refn film. Being a fan…
Hey everybody, it’s your host Ari. A few words about the two episodes we owe you. I’m sorry to the fans who are waiting to hear me complain about stuff and yell at my co-hosts but some small issues popped up. The CouchIsland crew went on a small road trip to get some perspective on life and get the new CouchIsland wheels up and running. It was a little too busy to get an episode recorded and put up for you so we decided to delay until we could get a quality episode out for you.
