I’ve updated my resume and will try to update some other details or links. Possibly a story idea.
I haven’t touched this site in a while and I should have if for no other reason than to try to scratch my way back into practice of writing. I will be typing up some things I’d been thinking about soon, but it is midnight and I have work tomorrow so I’ll adjourn for this evening.
My sister made a crack about me not being able to draw around Christmas time. Sometimes I think she may be right but I occasionally dabble anyhow. This is a digital doodle from this evening. I suspect I was playing with it for about three and a half hours as that’s how long the dvd I was half watching ran for. Comments are off but if you want to say something about it and are in my Facebook list feel free to respond to the post about it there.
In other news driving a different car now which so far seems to be doing pretty well. I think I only traded down on engine size and storage space, the comforts seem to all be there plus a few newer gadgets that my seven years older car didn’t have. Tomorrow I think I’ll try it on its first longer drive and run out to West Liberty to see Eulenspiegel Puppets current production. That is about all I have to say at the moment.
Grin + minion = grinion
The grin of a ones minion as they mindlessly go about their tasks or the signs that they actually enjoy their assignments.
Hiya anyone that happens to still check this with its long absenses of update. This is primarily a quick test shot of a sub account that I can use to log in at work without exposing my main passwords to someones network. Things to do on webpage:
-update redirect from shawkdesign.net to point to current site
-update splash page
-post new content
and off we go, end of day in minutes and drive home.
Tomorrow, I shall try to write something either here or elsewhere. I am out of practice and continue to avoid doing it. I hope to hear something by Monday from the job people or I’ll be starting over on the hunt. Been an interesting day over all, didn’t do much but was contacted through various means by three people I haven’t heard from in a while two of which want me to visit and the other I already have and its my turn to return a favor. So over all yes it was a pretty good day.

Morgan Beary designed and built the puppets for this performance. He has been asked to make many strange things before but these may be among the largest and strangest things he has created. More information on Morgan can be found on his website www.shawkdesign.com.
It didn’t take long to fall into the old bad habits. I need to get more focused on projects instead of wandering back into time wasting activities. Not sure where to start on that.
Went to a concert that was part of some degree requirement for a pair of instructors. The performance was quite good, though I don’t think I properly appreciated the white-Brit boy rappers. They seemed to have established the whole gesturing and strutting thing with the wardrobe but I think they need a bit more practice on the diction and synching. Otherwise for the other groups the instrumental work was good, lighting was passable, video playback was clever, vocals good (though couldn’t understand the rapper guest spots), overall audio for the setting was about right for the save of space and the clarity was pretty good.
