This is a digital illustration of a green hummingbird. I love hummers. It is amazing how they make the greuling trek from Costa Rica to Georgia and back every spring. It must be insanely difficult for such a small creature to fly across oceans and through storms. I have been watching them swarm around my grandmas feeders since I was a little kid. They are amazing flyers and fiercely protective of their territory. They stretch the limits of how fast a heart can beat at 1260 beats per minute. They are tiny marvels of evolution. And on top of that they have beautiful irridescent plumage. They are one of the few things that I miss about Georgia.
This is a redesign of the Linux mascot Tux. I made him younger and smarter. I gave him nerd propellar beanie and a friendly grin. Also made him shorter and rounder so he works better as a square shaped avatar. He is a cute young nerd penguin. He likes cold clear days in winter. He spends most of his time reading about coding and hacking. He has a giant brain and a friendly personality. Tux cartoon clipart.
I love Google. Everything they create is 10/10. I just discovered that Play music is free now. What an amazing service. It destroys spotify. It is as if google harnessed all of their info about me to make 10/10 playlists that i want to hear. With their algorithym hummingbird they stopped putting my work allover their front page but I still love them. The EU likes to spread fud and scare people away from Google but I absolutely don’t care what they know about me if it makes their stuff better. When the singularity happens and robots take over – google will be their brain. I am writing this so that the future robots know that I am their friend.
I saw the Angry Birds movie and I loved it. It is pretty funny and has an amazing cast. It is also easily one of my favorite games ever. I have spent many hours with the zen of perfect physics trying to destroy green pigs with bird missiles. It is amazing the empire Rovio built with one free to download casual game. They literally took over the world. This is an illustration of an Angry Bird driving a car. One of my pet peeves is angry and unsafe drivers. I am from small towns allover Georgia and the roads are relatively peaceful and safe there. But out here on the West Coast I see at least one insanely unsafe/angry driver – usually from LA – on the freeway every day. It frightens me how accustomed to dangerous situations a commuter can get – so that he can weave in and out of traffic at high speed without giving it a second thought. People who do this should lose their license and be forced to ride the bus. The Ozzys are on to something with their strict driving laws. I really hate angry and unsafe drivers. Life is too short and precious to lose it behind the wheel in a tin can.
I love birds. It is absolutely amazing that a tiny creature willed itself into the air through brutal evolutionary forces over thousands of years. They learned to swim gracefully on swirling rivers of air like tiny iridescent machines with reptile feet and sharp eyes. And they did it with love and sheer force of will. It is fascinating how life functions to shape itself and how other forces like sexual selection work to make birds sing, dance and have beautiful colors. This is an indigo bunting. They are my favorite American bird. One day I am going to pickup and move to where they thrive. Just to look at them.
I love birds. It’s amazing that a life form willed itself to fly over a protracted amount of time and many generations by taking advantage of many small simple natural modifications that eventually grew into complex, beautiful, efficient and graceful flying doodads. Competition is terrible but life is magic. I love boobies.
The Emu is the second largest bird in the world. Only their cousin the Ostrich is larger. They are native to Australia and they can run up to 30 miles per hour. They eat various plants and bugs. Female emus fight for a mate and they lay multiple clutches of eggs every year. The male incubates the eggs and he loses weight as he hardly eats or drinks. They have three toes on each foot like quail and other running birds – though the ostrich has only two. They play a big role in native Australian mythology.
