2013

by on Jul.17, 2013, under Contemplative

So I haven’t posted anything here in quite some time it would seem. The site is still up. The content creator just hasn’t fully committed to what to do with it.  I really wish I had a proper workshop to develop projects in, I think that would make life much easier.

At any rate, I have a couple of projects I am working on that I would like to post about but they are also gifts so I don’t want to spoil the surprise until they are delivered. One of them will be talked about soon. The other is still being built but should hopefully be finished in the next couple months. That is all for now.   –M

I’ve updated my resume and will try to update some other details or links. Possibly a story idea.

Updating

by on Oct.04, 2010, under General

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.

Drawing

by on Jan.23, 2010, under General

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 Haste, running home

In Haste

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.

July

by on Jul.23, 2009, under General

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.

Four sentence bio

by on Jul.01, 2009, under General

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.

Old bad habits

by on May.19, 2009, under General

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.

Concerts

by on Apr.23, 2009, under General, Travel

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.

Mercenary work

by on Apr.23, 2009, under General

I think I’m going to try my hand at some mercenary work when I return to the states. By that I mostly mean freelance writing, hopefully using a couple of online job sites. I’d have started already if it didn’t require a phone confirmation during its set-up process. I’m a bit rusty on some of the writing but with this site, a writing contest, and job inquiry I feel a bit better about it. There is a performance tonight at the Grimsby Institute that we’re going to attend. It may be one of the last times I cross paths with the people there as I’m headed back home Sunday. It’s been an interesting trip all through. I wish it had started a bit smoother but that makes a more interesting story anyhow.
