Utah Art Festival

Utah Art Festival in Salt Lake was pretty cool.  Also, if you haven't heard Fictionist play, go see them.  Their guitarist is out of control.

MGMT is the Problem

"Let's make some music, make some money, find some models for wives.  I'll move to Paris, shoot some heroin and **** with the stars.  You man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars.  This is our decision, to live fast and die young.  We've got the vision, now let's have some fun." -MGMT

Several people have requested, whether through comment, pm, or verbal conversation, to further elaborate on my previous post.  To appease the masses (I like thinking I have masses to appease) I am here, readressing the issue more plainly.

May I start with a personal side bar?  Thank you.  I shall.

I recently have had the opportunity to date (go on dates with) two of the strongest women I have ever encountered.  Not physically, maybe not mentally (I haven't had opportunity to thoroughly test for this ;D ), but socially.  Is 'socially' the word I'm really looking for?  Probably not... but social circumstance is where it manifests most immediately, so I'll stick with 'socially' to save myself the effort of pressing backspace.

This recent development has opened my eyes to a realm of women that either I've never seen before, or (more likely) that I was too immature to notice before.  These two girls require respect and, as a result, get it.

Doesn't that last sentence look funny with the comma after 'and?'  Doesn't that question mark look funny inside that single quote?

This post is too long already, so, to the point!

Girls, if you want to be taken seriously in the dating world (and possibly in the world in general) I would highly recommend doing these few things.  Refuse anything but an actual date.  Be okay with your personal quirks and crazy.  Be educated and well read.  

To contrast, don't be the kind of girl that is being raised by the MGMT generation.  Don't be frivolous and air-headed.  Don't act/dress like a hooker.  And don't pretend that a modern reinterpretation of Ed Templeton's early 90's sketches is artistically 'truer' or any way superior to anything by the great masters.

Thank you, and good night.

Grow Up Girls

I recently was reminded by an article re-posted from a re-blogged article originally written by an author unfamiliar to me (if you didn't understand that you can just pick up reading here) that I hate it when women that refuse to grow up.  Not in the sense that they become overly matronly, mature, or any other attribute that could be used to try and make growing up sound bad; more in the sense that they refuse to let go of childish things.

I'm not going to belabor the point.  If you want a full rant you can read the overtly vulgar original here.  Rather, the short of the story is this: if you want to command respect from your male counterparts, be something respectable.  This goes for all you twenty somethings that insist that you're still in your teens, as well as you any-agers that have decided that your way is the right (and only) way without really exploring the other possibilities (yes, finalized judgement on anything is very childish [who do you think you are? God?  I don't think so.]).

Thanks.  More cheerful art on the way.
If you haven't checked my new mothership page, do it.  I'm posting content on it faster than I can finish the design work for it.

Disneyland: elecTRONica

It turns out that California Adventure Park is AWESOME after dark right now.  Here's what I wrangled up for you last night (all photos taken on my iPhone 4).
