Latest day at the range with the old lady, here’s some of the aftermath. I think the sights on the gun we rented was off because I was getting good grouping but was off vertically. Either way I think she got the bug too, so looks like we’ll have to get rid of some other spending habits to make room for this.
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.
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.
I like having hobbies. Recently I had reached the expensive end of a lot of my current hobbies. You can only go so long before your skills push beyond the simple beginner kits and you start having to buy specialized gear. In the spirit of self-improvement I started looking around for new skills to pick up. Diversify my interests while making myself more valuable during an apocalypse. This is the first target from trying to learn to fire faster and more accurately. A buddy of mine brought out his single action .22 and we rented a 9mm Glock. We ran through something like 200 rounds and I was starting to get the hang of keeping my stance and recoil management. The gun bug definitely bit…
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.
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!
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…
