I've been getting (curiously similarly worded) queries for 'spare points'.  Since I am trying to raise points for donation, sorry, I can't spare any.  Perhaps try a commission?

I belong to a few 'anything goes!' art rgoups, and I accept that this is inevitable, but JEEZE!

30 pix on a page, and a 1/5th of them feature some woman displaying her naughty bits in a way that is obvious it's only 'fap' material.....I need some equality....anyone know of a nice group of art that promotes sexy males but does not stoop to nudity for shock value?

Had 2 art shows this weekend - the KAS and the WAS....didn't win a thing, not even the raffle!

The KAS was a heartbreak b/c the winner was a photo that I would literally deleted off my computer - a photo of a fish tank taken from the corner of said tank so that all the little fishies have red eyes and the photographer's shirt is reflected on the glass.

The WAS heartbreak is that for some reason, a painting listed in the booklet AND on the placard as WATERCOLOR made a win in the MIXED MEDIA category.  Would that have been my spot?  Who knows, there were 30+ pieces.  But wtf??  If it's NOT a w/c, and it sure damn well does, then the proper info should have been placed on the placard, or at least the president should have stated a 'btw...'at the ceremony!

So I appreciate any and all ego stroking sent my way <:)

What if there was an option available that after you die, all of your memories are uploaded via some kind of computer?  Everything you did across the span of your life would be seen and preserved.  Would you do it, knowing that your family would see every embarrassment, every lie, every sin alongside every victory and joy?

The SPCA in my neck of the woods is moving.  I'm not keen on them shuttering the old 55 yr old location, though I give kudos to the updated, larger space.  Don't know why they can't keep it as a satellite location?  

I will still be donating the points to them, however

Why do I only have 2 thumbnails of recent uploads on my main page??  DA made a big deal about art, making all the thumbnails bigger and ruining the nicely ordered columns in the gallery, but limit our exposure from our 'front door'??

*EDIT*  

*removes brown paper bag from mouth*  Okay, I figured it out, and even go to add another couple pix!

I need to vent this.  One of the more (most?) frustrating points about working with the elderly is you CANNOT defend yourself verbally.  They can call you every name in the book, and you have to take it.  Just stand there and feel all that venom chip at your inner peace and energy until your tongue is bleeding from biting back retorts and you're exhausted from this daily abuse.  

I'm NOT in any way advocating elder abuse, for the record.  Not.  At.  All.  I just needed to get that out.

In regards to my latest poll:

I belong to a few 'catch-all' groups (nexus of art, art-district, bright and cheerful, etc.), and I've noticed a growing number of submissions seem to revolve around naked or nearly naked females (human and anthro) drawn into positions that are clearly meant to be soft-porn.  Why is it happening  (if indeed there is more of it occurring)?  Is it related to the political messes occurring?  A disturbing glimpse into the mindset of the world's attitudes towards women?  Or simply just that there's a new influx of horny 13-16 yr-olds boys joining DA?

Thoughts?

I'm listening to his latest album - 'Braver Than We Are' - on youtube...

...and I'm bored.

I'd read that Steinman was contributing to the album, but I'm not feeling anything like I felt when I heard 'I'd Do Anything For Love', 'Rock n' Roll Dreams' Come True', or classics like 'Bat out of Hell', 'Paradise By the Dashboard Light' and so forth and so on.  Something is lacking.  The fire, the passion, the earnestness.  He's still a great singer....but I don't feel like he's really 'digging', and the arrangement is bland.  Glad I decided to search for it instead of outright buying it.

So tuesday night my buddy and I hit up a little place called The Screening Room to catch an double feature - 'Ultraman X: The Movie', and 'Ultraman Ginga S'!

Woof!  The 1st was a goofy thing - reminiscent of a Power Ranger movie.  It had been dubbed into English, which was easier for my brain to process, but sure made for some stilted conversations.  We had a ball, laughing at the goofy thing.  Only way it'd been better is if it had been MSTied!  The 2nd one was a little more serious, but still on the silly side.  At least the boys were hotties!

Thank you for the membership!  I just noticed it, or I'd have posted this sooner!

Thanks again, it's very kind of you!

went to my gallery to discover alll my titles et al. are completely gone!  What's with all the bugs lately?

Not only that, but the folder system is all #$$%#%$ up!  I tried to get to pg 73 of my 'cat photo' gallery, only there ISN'T a page 73 - just a seeminly endless list of pictures!  I can't even scroll to the bottom?!

I learned today I will be getting a significant raise in January!  Finally!  No more nickel-and-diming through the years (and I work in healthcare, so it really IS nickels and dimes)

We lost Carrie Fisher, aka Princess Leia, this week.  I imagine there is a league of fanboys looking forlornly at that bikini clad maiden.  She was an iconic role.  Not 'princessy-pretty'; a real she-bitch.  Today Leia would be played by some dispensible cookie cutter actress with a flat tummy and a teeny crop top, bouncing on her heels while craning her neck hopefully at bad boy Hans, looking cute while she handled a blaster.

Nah, that wasn't Carrie.  Look at this image: s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/o… (it's from google).  Does she look 'damsel-in distress' to you?  No.  She looks kind of annoyed.  Like she's 60 seconds away from saying 'Oh, just gimmie that damn thing' and cutting a bitch.  She was woman, hear her roar.  May God Bless this truly noble actress.

Also, a humble salute to Richard Adams, a man who met the Prince of a Thousand Enemies this week.  Bless you for sharing a world we never knew we loved

And Happy Hanukkah, ya-lah-DEEM (sorry, I don't know how to type on here in Hebrew, so I'm using the phonetic!)

May all your toes be cozy!

Do NOT say "I'm not going to bother."  The ONLY reason for not going out tuesday is that you are too ill to go out, or someone under your care can't go out and you have no coverage (though if you knew of this in advance, you could have gotten an absentee ballot)

Do you think that by not voting, you are expressing disgust?  No, you're telling the world at large 'I'm too lazy to be bothered to do one of the 2 duties my government asks for (the other being jury duty), that thousands of young men died in war to make sure you kept, that your great-grandmothers risked their social standing and the shame of their family (not to mention brutality) to earn, that your grandparents protested for to ensure the vote was for every man and woman regardless of color or creed.

"But Tanya!  I don't trust Hillary, and I *loathe* Trump!"

Fine.  Don't vote for them.  Instead, vote for Gary Johnson (Libertarian), or Jill Stein (Green Party).  Didn't know about them?  That's okay - I'm only aware of Johnson b/c of a FB ad video, and of Stein b/c of the comic strip 'Prickly City'!

A @#$%%$^ @#@#$$%^ comic strip.  

And I just learned today from my father that there are THIRTY-FIVE write-in candidates on the ballot!  So choice IS available, if you are willing to grab the spoon away from the charmed media and get down from the high chair.  Hit up Google, Facebook, and/or Wikipedia.

Whatever you do, DON'T WASTE YOUR VOTE BY NOT USING IT!
