Human by ScottMan2th
Human
three quotes (among many) to consider:

1: Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.
    Without them humanity cannot survive.
   
    Dalai Lama

2:  You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean;
    if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
 
    Mahatma Gandhi

3: It has become appallingly obvious that our technology
    has exceeded our humanity.
   
    Albert Einstein


and here's an absolutely brilliant animation (posted two years ago on vimeo (by someone very clever) that details how that happens: The innovation of Loneliness: vimeo.com/70534716

Solution-84135165
not sure what Solution 84135165 is or what it does exactly but it's nice to know that Research and Development grants were of sufficient quantity that allowed them to finally get it right...

-tech specs-

made on a heavily modified playing cared that was separated from its back then dyed using tea and the edges burned. the additional images came from various comics (one being a preview) that had been damaged...the text came from an ad of some kind while the high number came from a shipping box...the background was sourced from a scrap booking collection that i had custom cut locally

and just a reminder, i do not own the actual images that were taken from the comics

i'm a bit of a geek in many respects (well, some might say it's deeper that that) especially with things that i like, and insanely detailed stop motion animation happens to be one of my obsessions. that being said, early this morning i watched the latest trailer for Laika studios Kubo and the Two strings...it looks absolutely stunning:

   

and yes, you are in fact hearing an amazing samisen cover of George Harrison's classic song
While my guitar gently weeps in the background... beyond epic
  • Mood: Content
  • Listening to: tinnitus in my right ear
  • Reading: stuff
  • Watching: this trailer for the tenth time
  • Playing: the part given me
  • Eating: something
  • Drinking: h20
Outsourcing-compassion by ScottMan2th
Outsourcing-compassion
maybe i'm cynical but i'm convinced this sort of thing takes place in board rooms every day


made using scrap booking paper/cardstock, news print and random business chart and image from an old comic book which was drawn by someone with far more talent than i

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
Favorite genre of music: Classical (yeah, I'm a geek)
Favorite photographer: Cary Norton, carynorton.com/ and many others

Favorite 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
