I had started writing a rant about the Web Blackout vs SOPA / PIPA bills, but thinking things over the bills are going to fail but not as a result of Blacking out the web. I think the entire idea stands as a ‘this is how shitty things can get’ but as usual it won’t get that shitty because there’s one person at the top paying attention. And it’s not because people were moderately inconvenienced today.
Anyways if you want some lulz from this I highly suggest checking out @herpderpedia and read all the fail that has resulted.
P.S. I’ll probably re-organize my thoughts and write them up for some more shits and giggles when the full fallout from today happens.

I think the biggest and boldest problem affecting me is that in recent months is I’ve not been getting to do the things that really challenge me. I think I’ve become too comfortable doing virtually nothing hard, which is terrible. Overall I think there’s a lack of conflict which I can turn into something creative.
The source of this? I hate my job. It does take a lot of time and energy from me, but I don’t think that’s a good enough excuse. Like 110% of everyone hates their job at some point. I think there’s also a lack of anyone in my life pushing me, someone special. I probably need a muse, or a girlfriend.
Still, can’t be looking at excuses. The other day I did stumble on a website that houses a collective of artist work which will make perfect fodder for my ‘Artist Talks’ since the website doesn’t go into much detail or much of anything. So I guess I can shine there.
Probably what I really need to do is finish some old projects before I start some new ones. Also axe the ones which are no good. A shame, but I can’t toil on things which will go no where. Speaking of which, no where is where that one final pigeon is.
Lets start with that.
And I’m away.

Been a long time since I’ve written one of these, but today would be as good as any. Today marks the day when my (now ex) girlfriend moved out of our place after a month and a half of awkwardly living together. Things did not go so well or so smoothly, but I don’t regret what has happened. I gained my full independence that day and haven’t looked back.
A lot has changed in those 365 days. I’m not going to lie and say it’s been all totally awesome, as with everything there are ups and downs. What matters is how you handle the ups and downs and ride out any potential bullshit, or that’s at least how I feel business should get done. Really there wasn’t much I could do but go forward.
To look at some positives, I’ve been way more social with my life. Hell even done some things I never imagined I would ever do or be doing. I got to meet my first floor neighbours and they’re hella cool peoples who I party with on the occasion. I’ve made great new friends and dated some awesome people. Hell, I did some pretty cool things with my artistic aspirations and taken things in other directions.
The time living alone has also given me some perspective on who I am as a person and the kind of things I want to do and get done moving forward or every day.
I guess I can’t be a hater on today. I am still a bit sad, but that’s the nature of the incident. There’s no point holding a grudge or ill feelings it’s done and done. I was unable to change things when it happened nor can I change what happened now.
So as much as this is a Hate Monday, for today I put the hate away and think back on the good that’s happened to me instead.

So one of my photo projects / ideas has been put on hold because there’s been a lot of confusion on the policy about taking pictures on the public transit. According to the nice people in the offices that handle this matter, as long as I’m not doing this for commercial usage (which I’m not planning at this time), I can go ahead and snap snap away. However the nice people at the stations have been told I cannot do any of that since I do not have a permit. And at this point, having a permit would save me a lot of problems going forward.
So that’s that. I’ve done some work, but it’s going to be a big project, but I’m thankful I’m doing some of the bigger pain in the ass places and realistically it’s only going to get easier.
My pigeon project however will soon becoming to a close. I’ve posted up here and on my projects page so take a look. The reason it will be coming to an end is that I have the final images I need to finish it and get on with something better / cooler.
But whatever, it’s summer and it’s time to get out and enjoy it before shitty winter decides to set in again. And now for a filler pic.
