Category: Stand Alone



Old photo from Moorpark. So I understand the teams to play in the super bowl are set for this year. I didn’t care, and like usual I likely won’t care enough about the game to watch. For anyone else into that, I have no problem with you enjoying it, because there is no rules saying what you can or can like. If it makes you happy, and not causing problems, then it’s all good.


Keeping Steady

From Moorpark. Now and then the schools head officer would set up this little game. Put on this pair and beer goggles, and see how well you would walk along the line. I tried it once and didn’t stumble around because I knew it was just an illusion. I got called a cheater but we still had a nice little laugh about it.


Activism Art

Awhile back while in Moorpark, for some reason the college decided it wanted to do a theme for that school year, The year of Science and Religion. I have no idea who thought this, or why it needed to be done, but I hardly cared. A fellow graphics student saw the poster, who like me, wasn’t much a fan of religion, stole it, decided to make something with the poster and added his own protest to it making use of the same imagery.

We were stunned to discover the poster was returned in a modified fashion but at the same time, we all thought it looked cool still.


Street Fruit

Awhile back I came some idea some people have posted around about helping to make it easier to grant access to food to these who have trouble affording it. The idea is to grow fruit trees along city streets so people can pick them and have something eat.

This idea might not be the best because it could attract certain pests, and create a mess with fallen fruit. But another upside is it can help fight pollution.


Lego Shark

I think I had a nice christmas this year. But one thing that stood out to me most was the lego. I used to play with it all the time as a kid, because there was something about creating your own world to help escape the reality of your own that made you so miserable. Maybe it was being involved with the creation of something I just enjoyed more.

Might explain why I liked Sim City as a kid, and the World Editor in Warcraft. What I ended up doing with the lego I had as a kid was sell it to a friend for her kids. They wanted some themselves but it just cost so much. She got a lot, for cheap, and I was totally ok with it too because otherwise I would have just sat there and not get played with at all.

As for this, I’ll just put it on display. That’s all I can think of on what to do with it.


Snow Capped

Taken awhile back from my adventure at Pyramid Lake. I should make some time to go up there again if there is any snow there because I need to got shots like that again. That and hopes I could get a snowy Castform on Pokémon Go.


Link Gif

Back while at LA Comic Con, I met this one guy hanging at a friends booth. We talked for a good while and he asked if it was possible to take a bunch of photos in his cosplay performing an attack like Link does in the Zelda games, then turn it into a gif. After two months I finally got to it. That’s what happens when you don’t have a computer for a while and have a lot to go thought, and play a lot of Warcraft.

But what’s more interesting is that I just discovered I didn’t upload my photos on here from day 3 of LA Comic Con. Well I will fix that soon.


It’s Here…

After months of having no computer, I have one again, and it’s beautiful. A 21.5 inch iMac, like the last one (because I can’t afford a 27 inch), retina display, same size hard drive as before, 1TB, but a fusion drive (which is kind of a hybrid of the old style drive and solid state), and a whole lot more power.

What makes me happiest is the oddest of things. That is doesn’t have the newest version of the Mac OS. The reason is I learned last month that version, will not open any Adobe program before Creative Cloud. That means I can still use CS6, so I won’t have to figure out some hoops to jump through to open it up again. Oh the joy.


RIP Hollywood Superman

I learned about this last night. I met him 12 years ago and believe this photo was form when we officially meet. I was always a fan of Superman and I already knew about the guy before hand. Something else I also knew about the characters on Hollywood was they do take tips so when I took this photos, I gave him a little cash. It’s the proper thing to do.

Eventually I learned he came across some problems like how he was beat up and became homeless, which I didn’t find out about till after he got the help he needed so I’m glad that recovery happened, but never really checked in on how he was doing which is a problem of mine. I did see him one last time a year or two ago on the Boulevard, in a nice looking costume too. We talked shortly because I had some place to go but it felt nice to see him again. Hollywood isn’t going to be the same without him. Now to wait for some local news outlet to mention this, because he was a local celebrity.
