Looks like there is a storm coming - the sky is dark and threatening to rain....

LOL - while I was working on the new painting today we watched a HORRIBLE movie called "Troll 2". Matt actually has Troll (the first one) on tape, it's not too bad. Troll 2 though - GEEZ that is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. And I generally enjoy bad movies. It is unenjoyable on any level. For those of you who have seen it - I have two words for you - the "POPCORN SCENE"!?!?!?

So now hopefully whenever I see this new painting of mine, or prints of it, etc. it won't remind me of that movie.

I know I've mentioned it before, but I LOVE QUORN! Specifically my favourite is the Gruyere Cutlet - it might be my favourite ready-made-vegetarian-meat product out there. Unfortunately it's also one of the least healthy, lol. And pricey.

In summary:

New painting: GOOD
Quorn: GOOD
Troll 2: BAD


******************
EDIT:

Holy cow! I was looking up at IMDB and I was right - Troll 2 really is the WORST movie ever - it has the lowest score on record:

I love those Gruyere Cutlets. I've only found them at ONE store in the Seattle-area. I have the herb and garlic ones in the oven right now with some tater tots.

Thank you sweetie! =)

OH my goodness. A vegetarian who hasn't had Quorn yet? It is slowly spreading down through the States - it comes from the UK and is one of the BEST vegetarian "meats" out there. It is so good it makes my head spin.

I think I remember hearing you guys talk about "Troll." Isn't that the one with a character called Harry Potter? Too bad the sequel isn't any good.

Yep! Harry Potter! The first movie was pretty cute, had it's moments, overall a decent movie. The second one was HORRIBLE. It had nothing to do with the first one. It doesn't even say the word "troll" anywhere in the movie - it mentions goblins, but no trolls. The DVD artwork had a picture of a werewolf on it for no reason whatsoever (not in the movie). The acting was terrible and nothing made sense. It was really pretty funny though - it was SO bad I almost cried from laughing so much.

oh...

whatever it is, I adore it. ;-)

I vary the eyes from piece to piece - I think I stylize them depending on the level of detail and the backgrounds/situations the characters are in, etc.

Thank you very very much!

She's gorgeous! The opening song from XXXholic popped into my head when I saw the butterflies. :D

Your review only makes me want to see this movie, even if it's just to find out what happens in the popcorn scene!

Bad movies are the best. Never met one I didn't like, so I will have to rent Troll 2 just to hate it. ;) That is just too funny, I will look at something from five years ago and think, "hey I watched insert movie here when working on that!" ;)

new mailing list

I'm so sorry to bother you on your LJ, but I've been signed up to your mailing list since I discovered your artwork, and the updates never fail to make me very happy. So when the email came about signing up for your AOL I was all "lead me to it!", but when I clicked the link it told me I had already accepted or declined the invitation. I was hoping you'd know what might be wrong, or if it's just something I've done to make it hate me! Thank you so much in advance and sorry again! (My email address is cobweb_angel@hotmail.com if you have to add it manually, or if that helps at all.)

P.S. Green Eyed Magic is just gorgeous. I think the monochromatic style makes her eyes seem especially bewitching.

I have you on the new list now - just let me know if you receive the update tonight with the two new paintings. If not I can manually un-sub and re-sub you =)
