... contributes to my procrastination.
I had this grand idea of doing this cool video drawing for the XBOX I am giving away but never got around to doing it, but was set on only posting the results by video, and it had to be a cool video. So that is my reason and excuse for not revealing the big winner... literally BIG winner.
I really can't believe it actually. The winner of this thing has been a wise guy about it while everyone else for the most part have kept their typing to a minimum. With his every post I chuckled and thought to myself... its going to be really funny if this guy wins.
You freakin won it. I laughed out loud when I pulled it out of my satchel. Yup, satchel. I printed off everyones comments, ONE comment for each person and crumpled them up and threw them in my man-bag only to pull out Bryce Perica.
Ha. Congrats my friend! Shoot me your address through email and I'll send it out monday:) Your persistence persuaded the universe.

This was for a great group of guys locally from Colorado. This is some of the art I did for them recently. A snazzy little poster/album design/photography.

M.I.A. Big time.
Blogs take work for sure. They take dedication, something I once had but this blog pulled it right out from under my feet. I lost my balance but I think I just caught myself and am squeezing with my hands and pulling with my arms.
I miss writing and am gearing up for letting a whole bunch of stuff out. Let me start with this.
Introspection is the self-observation and reporting of conscious inner thoughts, desires and sensations. It is a conscious mental and usually purposive process relying on thinking, reasoning, and examining one's own thoughts, feelings, and, in more spiritual cases, one's soul.
I would like to think that 90% of people now a days are tricked into outward thought. Everything from television to movies to the internet plant seeds of "tangible realness" (what I'll call it).
"What you can see is what is real and it is apart from you but you need it in hand to make you feel whole. So, you do what you need to do to get it!"
This is what I see everywhere, in everyone, even in myself at times, most of the time. It makes me sad and angry. We've been lied to and its too easy for us to eat those lies up. Its easy. Its like fast food. It will kill you. It will kill your family. It will kill your relationships. It will kill the only thing that is important, your soul and if it kills your soul then it kills my soul. What you do affects me and what I do affects you.
Turn off your cell phones, your televisions, your I-Pods, smash your computer screen (well, just visualize that one).
It's about time you connect with your inner self, with WHO you are and WHY you are.
When everything is quiet. Listen to yourself. Listen to your mind. Listen to your heart. Realize what IS important and what ISN'T important. Then make changes.
This life is passing quickly. Our lives are on a downward slope. Busyness ignites velocity. Slow yourself down. Take a walk alone or with a loved one. Talk. Talk about what is going on inside of you. You are worth it. We are all worth it.
