Above the CloudsOn my recent, short trip to Kentucky, I had to do a lot of flights in a short period. In Omaha and Chicago, it was dreary, cloudy and gray for much of the time.Above the Clouds2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Waiting for boarding and looking out on the tarmac, as many people around here do, I wondered when the cold and grey would finally give way to spring. We are expecting snow today, and more next week!
Anyway, my musing for today is about how though it was gray and cloudy on the ground, it is much different once above the clouds.
At first, there may be turbulence, and as you get higher and actually into the dark clouds you can't see a thing. Its all a fog, and often it is a bit scary as you bounce around at nature's mercy.
But then, you breach the clouds as a happy whale breaches the sea, and you see a whole new, wonderful world.
It is a sea below you of pretty cotton fluff. The sun illuminates the cotton candy fields and makes the shapes of the formations seem solid, like you

Background of Luke Mitchell caseBackgroundBackground of Luke Mitchell case2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Jodi's mother said that Jodi had been "grounded" for skipping school and smoking cannabis. Out of the blue, on the afternoon of June 30th, Mrs Jones decided to lift Jodi's punishment. A series of texts between Mrs Jones' phone and Luke's phone was exchanged between 4.34pm and 4.38pm (Jodi's phone was broken, so she was apparently using her mother's phone.) These texts, it was claimed, were making an arrangement for Luke to meet Jodi later that evening.
A secluded path, around a mile long, running from Easthouses, where Jodi lived, to Newbattle, where Luke lived, was to become central to the whole case. A stone wall bordered one side of the path (the other was flanked by a corn field) and Jodi's body was discovered later on the night of June 30th behind that stone wall, in an area of woodland around 20 feet wide.
Three claims were made: that Jodi had left home at around 5.30pm to meet Luke, that she was expressly forbidden to use that path on her own, and that she was believe

3 Years AgoIt was 3 years ago I lost my Dad. I go to see mom at least once a week now, usually on Wednesday, which is today.3 Years Ago6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have had like 3 very realistic dreams of my Dad since his passing, in all of them he would not talk to me and glared disapprovingly at me. It is weird...makes me wonder if he really feels that way even now.
He and I did not get along well when I worked for him from the time I was like 11 until the year after I graduated High School, it seemed like he was always calling me stupid or something like that. But I see now it was mostly he was scared about providing for us, and he relied on me a lot to help him make money painting, roofing and fixing houses. He mellowed out more as he got more sick, and I did not feel like he was putting me down so much, but I never felt validated by him. He just wasn't the kind of guy to do that...
Anyway, a little tribute to him. I will try to validate him instead.
Dad, you did your best,

Set for $98 Million Weekend
By Maane Khatchatourian May 17, 2014
The King of the Monsters is also king of the box office.
“Godzilla” obliterated the competition with a $38.5 million Stateside opening on Friday, the largest debut day of the year. This includes $9.3 million from Thursday night screenings. At $6.2 million, the creature feature also earned 2014′s biggest Imax opening.
The Warner Bros.-Legendary Pictures reboot of the Japanese classic is on track for a much-higher-than-anticipated $98 million this weekend, which would be the best opening of the year so far.
This also means the tentpole could top the openings of “Captain Ameri

Socially AwkwardI like the internet, but I acknowledge that it's not perfect. The ability for everyone to be the invisible man allows for a lot of injustice, bullying, harassment, and stalking to take place. This is slowly starting to change, however, thanks to every website gradually forcing people to link to their facebook (or other social media equivalent) accounts. No one wants to lose their personal social outlets as a result of the stuff they were doing elsewhere on the web, if you know what I mean. But... with all good things there are some bad things.Socially Awkward2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting really creeped out how by how much everything is getting connected these days. Nearly every website asks me to post about stuff on facebook or twitter or reddit or whatever. Many websites don't even have personal accounts anymore and just have you link your social media accounts instead. And all of them want to update everyone on your every move 24/7.
And that's what's bothering me. I don't want every

I've always wondered why some artists disable their comments or hardly ever communicate with their watchers/followers/fans/etc. I like replying to every single comment that I get and I still thank everyone individually for watching me but by now I can totally understand everyone who doesn't respond at all anymore.
1) No, my work is not photoshopped pictures. They are paintings, not photomanipulations and no matter how many times you will tell me that they are nice photos but certainly not painted that still doesn't change the fact that they are, will and always have been paintings
How to make a Godzilla movie, step-by-stepHow to make a Godzilla (or any kaiju) movie:How to make a Godzilla movie, step-by-step1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is a pattern that I noticed in nearly every, single, Godzilla movie.
1. Introduce minor characters reacting to strange events or anomalies that can't be logically explained.
2. Slowly reveal that the strange events or anomalies are the result of kaiju (giant monsters).
3. Unleash kaiju to wreak havoc upon a densely-populated, major city. Like Tokyo for example.
4. Bring Godzilla or main kaiju in to kick some butt and take some names.
5. Beaten kaiju eventually recovers and/or recruits an ally.
6. All of the kaiju fight again and cause a massive amount of collateral damage to said, major city.
7. Godzilla / main kaiju wins.
