This week seems to be going so slowly. I don't know, it seems like it ought to be Friday by now, but it isn't. Seemingness is a filthy, dirty, lie.
I have decided that I hate MTV now and forever. It is the worst channel ever to be created. I would rather watch the History channel than MTV. I can feel myself getting painfully more stupid by being in the presence of a TV playing MTV. And whenever I am in the room, I am forced to be in the presence of MTV. It is horrible. I will detest it for life. Any show on MTV is automatically a show made out of poison.
Joyously, I did not have any art classes today. A water main burst yesterday, and I guess that vast amounts of water were lost, because today there was no water whatsoever in the Arts and Architecture Building. So I got several emails from several teachers informing me that the entire building was closed and I should stay away if I valued my health and happiness. I guess that without any working toilets the building was not a good place to be. They claim that it'll be open again tomorrow, but I can hope, can I not?
I have an art project due sometime soon (next week? the week after that? I dunno, I'm bad with dates) that involves varnishing a bunch of clay fruits which I have built. But I must varnish them with a coat of candy wrappers, see. So it makes a hideously angsty comment on American eating habits and how we horrid Americanfolk prefer all our fruit 'candified' and such. I know it's lame and terribly cliché, but I couldn't think of anything else in time that was practicable. I am sorry. In any event. I had to go out today and purchase a great many bags of candy. It being almost Halloween, this is thankfully easy to do. For once I timed a project properly.
So now I just have to dispose of the candy somehow so that I may utilize the wrappers. My hall is being very good about helping me with the project. I've got people all over the hall coming in to eat candy and then give me the wrappers. Even the roommate is lending a helping hand. Kevin took an entire bag of those little Hershey's chocolate bars and ate them himself, which was scary, but very helpful for the artistic cause.
I was going to bring in the candy and make my CFC class eat them, but we didn't have class today, so that wasn't a-gonna happen. Although I did see two of my art school buddies over in Stockwell today (Heather and Emily). They both live there, I was just visiting with some other Mojoers for the purposes of lunching.
Today whilst wandering about campus I came across some graffitti which said "$ eats your soul". I almost laughed out loud in the middle of the diag. Because, you see, that's almost exactly something that I would say. I highly approve of whoever wrote it. Woo yay for things eating souls!
I had my handwashed turkey away message up today, and it confused Kate. So I made her go to the link I just posted right there so that she would know what I was on about. I don't think she understood any better after she had seen the animation, but really, anyone who doesn't appreciate the gloriousness of Weebl and Bob is a bad person.
Some folks on my hall are selling their Ohio State v. Michigan tickets, and they want me to make a flyer for them so they can advertise this fact all about campus. They're assured to get buyers pretty much no matter what I do with this flyer, because people are foaming at the mouth to get their hands on Ohio State tickets, but I figured I ought to try to be at least a wee bit interesting. So the flyers say
WHAT IS A BUCKEYE?
Don't know? Don't care? It's OK, no one does. But you still want to see the game of the year, right?
GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!
And it's also got a straightforward graphic I made of the evil Ohio State symbol versus the Michigan block M. And contact information. Lookit that, I've already started learning from that heinously boring digital class. I made the flyer in Illustrator. Wow I am so very learningful.
Two tattoo designs, one dragon for a kid's room, one football ticket flyer... what the dickens, people? I am not a professional tattoo artist/illustrator/graphic designer. Why do people think that I am? I am at a loss to comprehend.
Dinner summons me. I go to eat souls. Ha HA!
or at the very least some mushrooms over pasta. good stuff, that.
