Rainbow
Rainbow
When it starts raining-it always pours
I'm trying to find an open door
I'm lost in the dark
And I need a spark
Of inspiration
To wipe away my tribulations
And I know this will pass
But how long will it last
'Cause I need a rainbow now
I need a sunny day somehow
I need a sliver lining
If don't be minding
I'm sick of all the rain
So I'm changing lanes
Going down a different road
Shifting to a different mode
Looking for my pot gold
Before I get too old
Here I go
Searching for my rainbow
Felling like I've been flushed down the drain
Has the world gone insane
Who should I blame
For all misery
Someone set me free
'Cause I need a rainbow now
I need a sunny day somehow
I need a sliver lining
If don't be minding
I'm sick of all the rain
So I'm changing lanes
Going down a different road
Shifting to a different mode
Looking for my pot gold
Before I get too old
Here I go
Searching for my rainbow
I know it's out there somewhere
And I'll look everywhere
Won't give up, no
Till I find my rainb

Literature
Bound to Get Better
Your sayin' the world's got you down
Is that why your sporting that silly old frown
So the war you fought
And your heart was caught
The battle lost
And you paid the cost
Now your feeling oh so low
Kid, don't you know
It's bound to get better now
Don't ask me when or how
But it' bound to get better now Every gray cloud has a sliver lineing
Soon the sun will start shining
Again, don't go insane
That's how it's played, life's crazy game
It's up and it's down
Goes round and around
So it's bound to get better now
The path that you've paved has hit a dead end
And your wondering how your heart's gonna mend
If you just stand still
It never will
You've got to move forwards
Head on towards
The future, yeah go
Kid, cause I know
It's bound to get better now
Don't ask me when or how
But it' bound to get better now Every gray cloud has a sliver lineing
Soon the sun will start shining
Again, don't go insane
That's how it's played, life's crazy game
It's up and it's down
Goes round and around
So it's

Sad Song
I see you looking back at me from a dirty, old picture frame
My feelings are still the same
Since before
You walked out the door
My heart has stopped like a broken clock
I keep waiting for you to knock
And come back into my life
Relieve my strife
At night i cling to my teddy bear
Hoping you still care
Like pages from a ripped up journal, my heart's been torn
For our lost love I still morn
The pain is sharp like toothpick
And it's making sick
But like a crystal chandelier
It's obvious and clear
You've moved on
And I'm singing a sad song

Literature
Whatever I want to
Whatever I want to
Look at them with their nose in the air
And they toss, toss their hair
And I wonder why they even care
About me, how could this be
Their saying something's not right
Hey I don't want to fight
But I'm not gonna play make believe
With the rules of some teenage drama queen
And I hope you don't mind
But soon you will find
That I rather do enjoy being me
Cause I'm taking the road least traveled
And where it unravels
Nobody, nobody knows
But I'm gonna go
To the end
I'm out on a limb
Trying hard NOT to fit in
Cause I don't wanna be
Anybody but me
Not you, so I'm gonna do
Whatever I want to

Literature
I love you
My days were dark and gray
I was sad and blue
I'd lost my way
Didn't know what to do
Then you came around
And I knew that I had found
All my life, what I'd been missing
Every night, on every star I'd been wishing
For someone to love
Someone like you
Then from up above
All my dreams came true
I can't get along
Without you now
Your the melody to my sweet song
And I know somehow
That we were meant to be together
You and me forever
And all the joy to me you bring
With every thing you do
Makes my heart want to sing
I love you ..

Literature
Internet Killed the TV star
I saw you on the small screen back in eight two
I’d mimic all your moves dreaming to be like you
Practicing all your lines hoping to be a TV star too
Oh a oh
They took your lines and said them miserably
The acting so poor, and they claim it’s reality
And now I understand the problems you can see
Oh a oh
I met your children
Oh a oh
What did you tell them?
Internet killed the TV star
Internet killed the TV star
You-Tube came and broke your heart
Oh a oh
And now we meet in an abandoned studio
On my iphone we watch reruns of your show
How it seems like so long ago
Oh a oh
You were the first one
Oh a oh
You were the last one
Internet killed the TV star
Internet killed the TV star
On my laptop in a free wifi coffee bar
Can’t press back, we’ve gone to far
Oh a oh
Oh a oh
Internet killed the TV star
Internet killed the TV star
On my laptop in a free wifi coffee bar
Can’t press back, we’ve gone to far
You-Tube came and broke your heart
Blame it all on the DVR

Adobe Photoshop has recently started a contest to find the next Photoshop evangelist. A Photoshop evangelist is basically a guru who promotes Photoshops through, presentations, tutorials and such. As a professor in graphics at PSU, I use Photoshop on a daily basis, and it's one of my favorite software as well. Naturally when I found out about the contest I knew I wanted to be the next Photoshop evangelist.

The submission video could only be two minutes and had to be over a "hidden gem" in Photoshop. I thought about some ideas that I could present on, and in the end I choose to talk about the Kuler panel and creating Actions. Technically I could have submitted more entries, but since I was short on time I only submitted the two presentations.

I would really appreciate it if everyone out there could help me win by liking my videos through Facebook at: on.fb.me/ytyuB2
