Friendz 4-evah?

Though Scott Brown’s Wired Magazine article on Facebook “Friendonomics” is almost 4 years old now (published in 2012), it still rings true. I was recently “found” by an ex whom with I parted amicably almost 30 years ago. She wasn’t looking to re-kindle, just to catch up. (It turns out, BOTH of us are happily married.) We had a flurry … Read More

A Hefty Dose of Reality

I was so inspired by this image, that I rebranded my blog and nabbed both .com and.net domains of the same name. They’re mine, suckahs!!! But really, who cares? And actually, I was just thinking that I should have taken it a step further by registering nobodygivesaratsassaboutyourblog.com…

He was also serving a season-long suspension for the famous … Read More

My good friend, Billy Fern (Rest in peace, buddy) had the martial arts bug long before me as his father had begun studying karate. (Billy often sneaked out of the house with his dad’s nunchucks, allowing us … Read More

I, Computer

An original song by my old two man electronica outfit, Burn Like Nero. The lyrics were once called “a bit naff” by a UK reviewer. After some initial outrage and indignation, I realized he was right. (I blame my inspiration: The movie adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Lawnmower Man”.) Can you feel the raw sexual energy of two nerdy 30 … Read More

Most of these pieces were created (from photographs) in Corel Painter, with a few done in Photoshop. Digital Auto Painter was used in some cases, as well.
