It's been a while since I've made a journal entry, hasn't it?


As it stands, I'm in the middle of a job hunt right now, and as I could use the income, I've decided to test the waters of Deviantart's print selling service by putting one of last year's pieces, "Snow Queen", up for sale as a print. If you like it and want to take home a copy, click the print button on the side of the screen. Hang a nice piece of art on your wall and feel good having supported an independent artist. And thank you very much. :)
It's a flop...

It's a dud...

One's a bandit.

The other's a shoemaker.

And when they get together, it's WACKY ZANY HIJINKS!

Fred Flintstone is late to his own birthday party...but with the bad jokes, the ice skating routines, and Jabberjaw and the Hair Bear Bunch, he's not missing much.

Anyone who lives in Lawrence, KS or its vicinity, visit a little place called the Lawrence Percolator (in the alley behind the Arts Center downtown) where for the month of February they'll be having a "Make More Love" exhibit featuring artists from around the community giving their takes on love and emotions.

Including me--I've submitted a piece of character art from my Nachos Con Carne project to the show. It's the very first time I've ever had something hung in a gallery before, and it's a very proud moment for me to see it on display with other talented artists from around the region. In fact, the print came out so well that I'm going to see about making more of them, maybe putting them on sale.

The Percolator is open weekends from 12-6pm. Go on down there, check it out, and support local artists.
Merry Christmas from Pop Culture Vomit Bag!

Here's a piece of holiday fruitcake for you - a 2000 Yuletide train wreck of a TV special based on a novelty song about a dead old lady. Fun for the whole family!

No one will be seated during the Carmen Miranda musical number.
The motion picture you are about to witness may startle you.

It would not have been possible otherwise to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers.

Dungeons and Dragons is that drug--a violent narcotic--an unspeakable scourge--The Real Public Enemy Number One!

Its first effect is sudden, violent, uncontrollable laughter; then come dangerous hallucinations--space expands--time slows down, almost stands still...fixed ideas come next, conjuring up monstrous extravagances--followed by emotional disturbances, the total inability to direct thoughts, the loss of all power to resist physical emotions...leading finally to acts of shocking violence...ending often in incurable insanity.

In picturing its soul-destroying effects no attempt was made to equivocate. The scenes and incidents, while fictionized for the purposes of this story, are based upon actual research into the results of D&D addiction. If their stark reality will make you think, will make you aware that something must be done to wipe out this ghastly menace, then the picture will not have failed its purpose.

Because the dread RPG may be reaching forth next for your son or your daughter...or yours...or YOURS!

This Halloween on the Vomit Bag, Harry Potter will do battle with witches, wizards, monsters and supernatural magic!

No, not THAT Harry Potter.

It's James Bond and Sarah Connor versus Mother Nature in that OTHER volcano movie from 1997!

You know, the one that DOESN'T take place in a city near a strike-slip fault.

Secret agent 007 James Bond and his female companion Vesper Lynd match wits with criminal mastermind Le Chiffre in CASINO ROYALE, now to PCVB!

I come from a basketball college town in Kansas City, a place notorious for blues music, barbecue, and quite recently, really bad football.

So you can imagine how pathetic I must feel when I hear that HE makes the big game while the Chiefs haven't been in FOUR DECADES.

Oh well, while you're pigging out on nachos and beer, check out Pop Culture Vomit Bag's review of the 1994 Peanuts special YOU'RE IN THE SUPER BOWL, CHARLIE BROWN.

On the latest PCVB! update, we'll take a look at the 1962 public domain horror classic CARNIVAL OF SOULS.

Made with pride in my hometown of Lawrence, Kansas, a progressive town on the Kansas River with a population of 87,000 people sitting right smack in-between Topeka and Kansas City, both a mere half-hour drive in either direction, with a historic downtown area and a thriving music and arts scene, and also home to the Jayhawks of the University of Kansas, a school in the Big 12 Conference with a beautiful campus and one of the best college basketball programs in the country!
