    It's Saturday night, and we are open for venting, incoherent shrieking, Proclamations and furious masturbation while speaking in tongues and firing yams out of your bum. And if you don't have any of that, tell me your name, show me your face, and tell me what you want.

    Speak, hordes.

    My name is Chris.

    Here is my face:

    I want stimulus. And stimulants. I drink Lo-Carb Monster, but more is needed.

    Well, I guess I can tell you my name. I'm rarely around these days. I'm Jon Munger, and sometimes I look like this:

    I want to get this page of pencils I've been struggling with done sometime in the next ten years. In the proud tradition of Do It Yourself, I figured the best way to get artists interested in me was to draw my own webcomic. It's turning out pretty well, definitely in the upper web comic realms and lower print comic realms so far as art quality goes, but fuck my eye Christ I'm slow. I need to figure out some shortcuts to my 'crosshatch until my hand falls off' style. But I really like how it looks.

    Story wise I'm kicking ass, because I realized that science fiction isn't about lazer eyes and robot arms, but about the social and human consequences of technologies. When you look at it like that, you can use the tools of the trade in a much wider range of setting.

    Just proposed two new tech article ideas to my contact at a tertiary magazine that I seem to have begun regularly freelancing for. Will only find out if the editor's cool with them by Monday though. A tad bit plain as far as updates go, I know, but these are potentially pretty fun articles and I always get excited about stuff that I have a keen interest in writing, instead of stuff that simply pays the bills.

    No, no real venting today. Sorry. As for that goofy mug of mine:

    Yes, I do seem awfully cheery for 5 AM local time, I realise. I suspect my body's running on a completely different time zone again.

    Yes, Cait and Cherie are crazy.

    My name is Huw. I usually go by Lem because apparently Huw is difficult for most ordinary humans to comprehend. Especially Americans, who just stand there saying "You?" back at me.

    Whoever the fuck put "Does not need a release agent" in the remeltable mould material I bought needs to be dragged through a field of dirty syringes.

    It's a silly, petty problem, but it does mean I've spent most of today pulling apart failed keyring mould attempts because the two halves have fused together.

    Tomorrow will be better. It'd better be because I'm really losing the will over here.

    We're having a writer play date with our buddy Mark Henry.
    And crazy or no, we are getting LOTS of work done, thank you very much...

    I've got some friends in from out of town and we're going to lunch in a bit. One from Japan, the other Iraq. This should be pretty interesting.

    Me at home.

    I'm Alex. My girlfriend has gone to Rome for her best friend's wedding but she's having a lousy time with the bunch of Prada-wearing, Louie Vuitton swinging snobs that make up her friend's circle and I just saw Miike's Visitor Q, so I am feeling kinda edgy as a result...not to mention the fact that Boris Johnson won the mayoral elections!!!!!!!!!!!! I am trying to not think how that's gonna affect London...

    At the same time, I am working on my PhD, reading like a maniac and trying to give my thoughts some sort of coherent form...oh well...

    Listening to some really cool music though:

    Asva - What You Don't Know is Frontier

    Zombie Zombie - A Land For Renegades

    Secret Chiefs 3 - Book of Horizons

    Boris - Smile

    Kayo Dot - Blue Lambency Downward

    @ fauxhammer that picture reminds me of the cover of new fast automatic daffodil's 'pigeonhole'
    yesterday i had a great day on my blog -- best ever in fact and pushed over the 4000 hits mark skullcull
    and my myspace blog topped 13,000 hits so i am feeling pretty good
    also had some new members on my writing site writers, prizefighters, and caffeine inspired all-nighters

    i started writing a manifesto of sorts which should see the light of day very soon

    a rant? maybe a micro-rant:

    my wife: do you have any bags we can use for our groceries?
    sam's club employee: this is sam's club we only have boxes

    this information was delivered in the smuggest tone like he was proud of the fact his company has a retarded policy, oh well.

    Another Saturday Night and I ain't got nobody.. well, that's hardly true this time. My wife is home for the first time in months (she's in college and actually lives on campus, so I only get to see her on holidays and summer breaks), so even though I'm exhausted from going down and packing her up and bringing her back, I'm quite happy to not be living alone for the next couple of months. And I suspect that tonight may involve a great deal of nakedness.

    I've been terribly unsatisfied with "The Job" of late, but that's probably more mid-life crisis than anything tangible. I need to beat away the beast known as procrastination and stop letting job stress derail my writing if I'm ever going to accomplish anything.

    The summer film project is more or less on track, but I'm rapidly losing confidence in some of my co-conspirators. Something may have to be done. Car batteries and jumper cables may be involved.

    Looking forward to the Sunday Stomp this week. My dear friend Elana has been playing with Garage Band and she has an amazing voice, so look for wonderfulness from her tomorrow.

    Now, I want cookies.....

    Huw is my middle name, and when people ask me what it is, they do that irritating "Who? You? Me? Who?" skit which isn't funny or clever at all.


    I hate how I have no self control. And I want self control, I really do, to be able to assert something over myself, like, if I want to lose weight, I want to be able to do that. But I can't. Because I have no self control. Which is a bugger.

    Meet the new face, same as the old face.
    Mr. Hat

    I've owned that hat for 20 years, btw.

    My hair is much longer now, almost down to my nipples. I'll get a new photo soon.

    What do I want? I'll tell you what I want. Some goddamn validation, that's what I want. But I'm fresh out of yams.

    We just got a new vacuum cleaner in the mail today from her grandparents, and I couldn't stop vacuuming. I love it, and would use it on my genitals if it weren't so powerful. We haven't ruled out having children, and I sorta like my dangly bits.

    Finally had the chance to drive my 1992 Honda Accord around, as opposed to my wife's 2008 Honda Fit. I missed my non anti-lock breaks oh so much, and a car that I didn't mind scratching up a bit.

    Must convince the wife that I need beer, and lots of it, tonight. I feel the art sickness coming on, and alcohol is my gasoline. She'll probably make me choose between Beer and Iron Man, but I've seen a shitty cam of Iron Man already, and can wait another week to see it in the theater.

    I'm going to go outside and take a picture, just for you, Warren...

    I'm halfway through day 1 of 3 for finishing up the painting for my big group show in NYC. I've moved on to oils and it's on its way to looking fabulous. Though it will probably go up wet, I don't particularly mind.

    I won't change out of these clothes til Tuesday and I'm already in full on disheveled mode. By Monday night I expect to have gone mad.

    But oh, it will be beautiful. Every moment.

    I'm sort of tempted to say that I want more time, or that I want to not need to sleep or something like that, but I have a feeling it is one of those things where whatever I've got I'll always be filling up and so more might not ever feel like more.
    I definitely want lots of time in a life span sense, though. I want a great many years yet to keep doing ... all of it.

    Two pictures from a day or two ago:
