[PD] ernie?

I thought this was a pretty good drawing. It kinda has a New Yorker feel to it i think.

list 2, favorite movies

1. Rushmore. I could have watched this movie for hours. The characters were great and believable even if it was a fantasy. Scott has a theory that any movie with the idea of "if i knew then when i know now" has an instant appeal. Peggy Sue got Married, Ferris Bueller's Day Off...
2. Fight Club. I saw this on a trip to Seattle when i was planning to got to Ikea...
I didn't know anything about the movie except that i had the impression that it was about machismo, that may been a big part of why it made such an impression. You might think it's dark, i think it's hilarous.
3. Henry Fool. Another movie with great characters. You might know people like those in the film but it's not about mundane characters. It's the only Hal Hartly movie i really like (sorry ben) although i have to admit that i haven't seen any of the films he's made since this one.

animated videos

yeah for animated music videos. The Shouty Track (ra) by Lemon Jelly or via iTunes,
Move Your Feet by Junior Senior, and Go With the Flow by Queens of the Stone Age, which i can't find anywhere but iTunes.
If anyone knows where to find a downloadable version, let me know.

circular reference, the start of lists as a theme

now that ben is in another state and i'm on the far side of this one i can talk about how devil's food donuts are one of my favorite foods. Any other donut i can take or leave but there's something about deep fried dough and the crust it forms that awakens all of the flavor of chocolate. Chocolate ice cream, on the other hand, i don't like. (how many people can say that?) It just seems gritty and bitter and wrong. Chocolate is best warm.

Amelia Approved.

Well, it seems that I've found another "Amelia Approved" game, Burnout 3. The point of this game is to crash other cars, and who can't do that? It made allot of end of year lists, including Time's (right along with Katamari Damacy) although most of the lists mention the xbox version. The game seems to have allot load times so i wonder if that's not an issue with the xbox since it has more memory. Amelia hates to admit that she likes it and that she wants to keep playing it. I think she even said that this might be the most fun game ever, but she won't repeat it.

Speaking of Katamari, have you seen all the Katamari links on memepool for Feb. 25th?

[PD] A is for Annie

so, this is different from the way i drew it, but this is what i originally intended.
It's worded badly. It should say something more like "why do so many cute girls have names that start with vowels?" and list more than "A" names.

[PD] Monster Draw

[PD] Drag cars

hm, i mispelled "elementary"


Picked up a Papo cerebus figure today. This image doesn't show how nice it is.

I figured out that i could use Apple's Preview to crop and save an image like i did here.

here's my drawing of the figure.
