Woot! Got a new job. As of February 4th, I'm part of the Unix Sysadmin team for a well-known software company. This one isn't in the Fortune 500, but maybe that's a good thing? Certainly won't miss the bureaucracy of the old one.
The downside is I'm going to be really busy for a while. Apologies to those whose comments and favs have not been responded to. Between looking for work, interviewing, and starting work, I haven't had much time for art.
After eight years with the company, I've been laid off. They did an across the board cut - even in groups that were *making money* (like mine). Shit. Worst economy since the Great Depression and I'm looking for a job.
Know anyone who is looking for a Unix SysAdmin?
Woo hoo! Can't hide my pride in my country. After eight years of having a President who was both an embarrassment to the nation and a threat to the world, it will be so nice to have THIS man in the White House. Will everything be different on January 9th? Nope. We'll just be starting-out in the right direction.
Barack Obama is bright, well spoken, and has shown excellent judgment. Best of all, he knows what the word diplomacy means.
Hopefully he won't waste any time in putting an end to Bush's illegal domestic spy program.
Once again, I've had burning pumpkin photos moved to the "pumpkin carving" category... which is under... culinary arts??? WTF? I risked my life (literally!) to make these photos and, now, they're grouped with a bunch of stencil-cut squash!?!
My images are NOT about fucking pumpkin carving!
I've burned dice for photos. Should they be under culinary arts?!?
I've burned words. Should the photos be under pumpkin carving?
Last year, the moderator(?) was nice enough to move them back into Horror & Macabre. This year nobody's responding. I've just moved them to "Photography, Abstract & Surreal, Surreal", because the theme fits the photos better
Woo hoo! Come see my Burning Pumpkin photos at the first annual Hallowe'en Bazaar! The Bazaar happens on Saturday September 27th in the Fright Town courtyard beneath the Memorial Coliseum.
This is SO cool. I've always wished Portland had an event like this! They've got an impressive vendor list and six full hours of events.
Here's their (I am so sorry, but) MySpace page:
And here's the soon-to-be revamped homepage:
If you're going to be in Portland on the 27th, please stop by. If you're not, then get your butt in the car and start driving! ;)
