I should do the same...maybe a drawing per week

365 PAGES AGO I HAD A VERY SILLY IDEA. Draw a page everyday for one year. Each day I spent around 1 hour on the page, sometimes more, sometimes less. There was never any planning or preparation, I would just go at it whenever I had a spare moment in my day and had something I needed to write or draw. Some of the drawings are observational and some are just plain weird. Monsters and things seem to crop up a lot (robots too). I have no explanation for this and don't really care because its my book and I drew what ever I wanted on that particular day.

My DIY projector screen

Mark, Billy, and I built a screen for my projector last weekend. It's 16:9 and 92"x42". We bought and sawed wooden planks at home depot to build the frame and then used blackout cloth to wrap it. Its pretty similar to preparing the canvas for a painting. It's sick. I'm pretty happy with it.

Often, the "correct" way is not the best way.

The gathering included a discussion of how early computer pioneers used LSD for inspiration. Douglas Englebart, the inventor of the mouse, Myron Stolaroff, a former Ampex engineer and LSD researcher who was attending the symposium, and Apple-cofounder Steve Jobs were among them. In the 2005 book What the Dormouse Said, New York Times reporter John Markoff quotes Jobs describing his LSD experience as "one of the two or three most important things he has done in his life."

What is there to know?

All this is what it is

You and me alone

Sheer simplicity.

I was just about to write an entry...but I think I'm going to go play football instead now. Oh well.

Its been a while since I've had a chance to blog. The past 2 weeks or so has been hectic as can be. I had an exhausting holiday, not a vacation or break, an exhausting holiday. I am probably more tired now than before the holidays started. I guess now is the time to recuperate as there ain't anymore holidays until next Thanksgiving/Christmas =/
I begun 2006 as well as wrapped up 2005 in Hong Kong. Going home was much more than I expected. Maybe I just expected too much of myself, but my 10+ days stay was beyond what I could grasp. It felt like I was thrown into the wolves. My mind was juggling ten emotions at a time and if anything, i probably just ended up overwhelmed and depressed.
I didn't quite make it so obvious, but I was glad to see both my family and friends.
