There is no word good enough to describe the relief you get from using this stylus. After 20 some odd years of drawing on a slippery hunk of plastic while you look at your screen – away from your hand – like a momo – using this to draw on your screen is the best feeling in the world. The amount of resistance as you make a mark, the way it feels in your hand – without a big rubber grip that gets stretched over time – the way you finally get to see your mark and your hand as you make it – it all just feels right. There is also a massive relief you get when you throw away your giant intuos medium that hogs your bag with its massive usb cable that tangles around everything. Finally you get to carry just your laptop and your power cable and nothing else. Granted this is probably really about how much I underrated my yoga 14 because of the lame stylus that came with it and the driver conflicts with my old tablet. I mean I am now aware of how amazing the screen that came in my yoga 14 is. You can look at it form any angle and the contrast and color is perfect. The resolution is high for a 14 inch screen too. Screens have gotten much better since 2010 when I bought my last lcd. Even my $2500 cintiq had crap viewing angles and terrible color because it had a crap tft screen. Plus that thing was too big and heavy and hot. It feels so good to have an art device that is perfect. I have waited for this for along time. And I had this thing for a year before I realized it.
Baristas hate me and I don’t blame them. My anxiety causes me to act weird when doing something simple like ordering a coffee. Just talking to a stranger causes my stomach to knot-up and and makes it hard for me to breathe. I know baristas are nice and they do a tough job – but this is how I see them. Black barista with braces.
This is one of the first memes I remember. It is a green troll from the internet ether. I have no idea where it came from but I love his design. He has big yellow orc tusks and yellow horns that curl.
This is UGa coach Kirby Smart. It is hard to believe that Kirby crafted the Dawgs into a machine that can stand up to the meanest team in college football and kick their ass after losing to them only two weeks ago. It certainly looks like Georgia made the right call when they hired this guy and Alabama might have lost the soul of their team.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is such a great movie. It is visually amazing and it has aged very gracefully. I love The Mayor with his two faces. One worried – one happy, and both neurotic. Really captures the fundamental nature of politicians.
I love F-15s. They are such a beautiful design. It is cool how the most capable fighters are the most beautiful. This thing is highly maneuverable, very fast and it has the radar and weapons systems to shoot down every jet in the sky and it is 40 years old. It is incredible the amazing things smart people create.
This is a fat guy with his shirt off standing in his underwear. He also has a pulse oximeter. It measures your blood oxygen level by looking at the color of your fingernail. It shows that his blood oxygen level is at 89 percent. Anything 92 or below gets you an oxygen tank to roll around. He has interstitial lung disease. It is a little understood lung ailment that causes your immune system to attack your lungs with scarring. The scarring makes your lungs less effective at putting oxygen into your blood. Eventually you suffocate as it is an untreatable disease. Life expectancy is 2 years from diagnosis.
I love the idea that we evolved from great apes and at some point our species was much closer to our ape ancestors than it is now. I am shy with a skittish personality but I also have an explosive temper. It is obviously a remnant of some wild personality trait that people needed to survive in a world ruled by predators like saber-tooth tigers. It comes from an old part of the brain that regulates our fight or flight response. I also have Celtic genes and they are one of the few European peoples not beat into submission and tamed by the Roman legion. I know my father had it. He had a placid personality but he was quick to anger if wronged and he would go nonlinear if he was pressed. This is a cartoon caveman with a club. He is living somewhere up there in my head.
This is a digital painting of Kanye made to look like natural media. I made a fake painting look like a real painting because I refuse to be constrained by the presumptive authority of the past. These are pixels. Deal with it.
