yeah, this is another shout out for one of my local friends who owns a small business:

www.facebook.com/video.php?v=8…

there is a back story to this video...basically the short version is this...another comic book store (which will not be named) based on the other side of town (where the money is) has decided to open up a "new" location a mile from my friends store...yeah, pretty underhanded...legal yes, but clearly unprofessional and very disrespectful considering that they intended to keep this very quiet until their opening day but word got out and the geeks in this area who have heard about it are not happy...not...one...bit. 

i'd encourage you when you have the time (maybe three minutes) to visit his website and fave or like the video and then share it with absolutely everyone you can think of...if you're by chance in the area when he's open visiting his store is even a better experience

i'm normally a very easy going person...but when you try to hurt my family or one of my friends that's when the fangs and claws come out...just sayin'

we've set the controls...threads have been sliced
a journey within...turned round on its head
no longer confined ...to shells by the sea
sails now unfurled...between the blackness of stars
beyond yesterdays now
first impressions on hearing the track -it's what we do- from Pink Floyds -The Endless River-

Aristotles-new-hat
just something that came together about a week ago while talking to my cousin -Curiousiris-
will probably see this on a card collage at some point with a few more elements added

if you haven't guessed by now i'm a huge science fiction geek and have been so for a very, very long time...and my preference includes both Star Trek (all the series, books and games) and Star Wars (the same here (yes, including the prequels but not so much for the reedits and new cgi scenes but i can live with them...mostly)... technically this is considered (by some) in the fanboy universe of mixing matter and anti-matter in a blender and saying "oops!" .0000000001 seconds later... not exactly a good idea or positive experience... but as Douglas Atoms said through his Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books "Space is big...really, really big"  so there is room for everyone...many species, many visions and many opinions of how the universe works and who chooses to live or maintain residency there or who might just be passing through on there way to a more interesting and exciting dimension.


while studios and insanely huge budgets can give us glimpses of these amazing and impossible worlds their is something to be said or rather seen when devoted fans can do who have a true understanding of what these fictionalized realities can be when the focus is not on profit but on the true heart and spirit of what these stories can become:

  
this is over 21 minutes long and just part of a larger project...i really like this one
for the vision and style it has for a pivotal sequence of events that lead to the event
in question and how it shaped the course of Federation form that moment forward:


     


one of the earliest and quite possibly the best parody of the classic:





another crossover parody that is just too good to ignore:




have to include this one as well...very silly...



are there others? absolutely...some are good, some need improvement, some need a bit more than that
but there's room for one more
  • Mood: Content
  • Listening to: silence...no wait...what is that?
  • Reading: obscure comics
  • Watching: the blinking cursor
  • Playing: sane
  • Eating: snack related...questionable nutrition value
  • Drinking: h2o
Multi-tasking by ScottMan2th
Multi-tasking
another card for the non linear saga/narrative that continues to develop...still have no clue where or how this story might have start or where it will eventually end

A new and almost exciting update to my profile:
(now less wordy for those with short attention spans)

This is what I look like (I'm sorry for any sudden feelings of nausea this image might cause.) I've been involved in some form of art (mostly photography) for a very long time ...although my skill set would greatly improve if given the opportunity to actually work in the photographic field. i've been unable to do so as of now. I do know a little about off-set printing and print layout techniques (years before digital took over (from high school) ...In addition to photography, I enjoy making collage, writing haiku and renga and short narrative free verse in addition to a new form I've discovered called Six-Word Stories (which is proving to be very addictive) I typically write in the morning when things are quiet and the voices in my head are not so loud. If I see something I like and it effects me in some way... you may get an example of my writing (good, bad or other) When I have the supplies, I also enjoy making handmade jewlery, and would like to do this as well as a means of acquiring the additional photographic equipment i need... however i usually wind up giving the things i make away(mostly for hugs) to friends or sometimes perfect strangers when i feel moved to do so or if i think they're having a bad day and need someone to show them they are not alone... never hurts to pay something forward...it might come back to you down the rode when you really need it.

Since my physical drawing skills (as of this writing) hover just below pathetic... we’’ll move on to other things. I grew up on real classical opera and classical music (Mozart, Bach,Vavaldi the list is long) so my tastes typically lean in this particular direction: I do like other things but I'm very picky... There are forms of music I do not like (I'm being more than kind here), but I’’ll keep the opinions as to what these genres might be to myself in order to preserve the peace and tranquility in the known universe. ( but you are welcome to guess) I enjoy the works created by Vangelis (Blade Runner, 1492) and a few others like Henry Frayne A.K.A. Lanterna. The solo works of Yo Yo Ma by Bach are also among my favorites. There are times when I like soft jazz (and when it fits my mood) as long as it’’s played in a coherent manner and not deafening or the band members are so drunk they can't figure out which side of the horn to blow or begin to intentionally slur their songs because the audience is equally as drunk and would not notice....or would in fact enjoy it even more. But for everyday ambiant sound, I could have Native American cedar flute music playing (very softly) in the background continuously day and night and be very happy. I'd like to travel around for a while... (another long and boring story that I will spare you) but to do that I need adequate funds and a reliable means of transportation which are very absent from my life.

I'd like to spend a few months out West and chase storms (with a professional team...of course) in order to capture better examples of lightning like the ones I currently have in my gallery: 1: scottman2th.deviantart.com/art… 2: scottman2th.deviantart.com/art… 3: scottman2th.deviantart.com/art…
4: scottman2th.deviantart.com/art…
and to document the terrifying beauty of severe weather. I consider lightning to be my personal (and rather dangerous) muse...so it’’s best not to annoy her when she calls you (although she has blown me a kiss before... but I didn't know it at the time...(see link 1) There are other motivations for going out West that would be difficult to rationalize them here, and to be honest they are very impractical for me to even be thinking about at this point in my life...maybe that’s why i feel so drawn to them...

Current Residence: Planet Earth (or someplace very much like it without actually being the actual Earth it could be)
Print preference: for art, any size that would look good framed
Favourite genre of music: Classical (yeah, I'm a geek)
Favourite photographer: Cary Norton, www.theordinary.org/ and many others
Favourite style of art: Depends on medium...however, Nick Bantock and the Brothers Quay are high on the list
Operating System: one that works
MP3 player of choice: paid for, easy to find, steam powered
Shell of choice: one that does not have something living in it to bite my ear off or inject a posioned tindril
Wallpaper of choice: velcro
Skin of choice: My own
Favourite cartoon character: Daffy Duck, Roger Ramjet, Reboot, Wallace and Gromit
Personal Quote: Loose lips fall off

To see what nice thing you've been accused of doing (and who else is being recognized), find the widget by the same name on my profile page!

Helpful hint:  It's above the Stamp Box of Doom!

Have a wonderful rest of your day!
