More of the same [Feb. 8th, 2003|01:31 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Guess what I'm doing today? Yep - that's right, I'm painting. All day. I think I might finish the 48"x36" commission today (depending on how distracted I am). I also am working on some sketches for a new commission. Hopefully I'll finish those today as well. First of all though I am going to do some photo re-prints for Amber (she got her photos back from the photo shoot from when she earned her black belt). Rather than pay for all of the extra wallet-sizes, etc. she's just having me scan them in and make photo prints - considerably cheaper!

Bleah, it looks cold and yucky outside. EBay is having some sort of server problems where newly-listed items are only showing up half the time.

I have MSNBC on the television right now and I hate all of the news. It's like watching a train wreck. I especially dislike it when countries are referred to as if they were individual people with pre-determined opinions (ie: "The United States wants such and such", "Iraq told the United States", "France disagrees", etc.) Who are these people speaking for me? I don't like being lumped together with everyone else in this country with only one spokesperson who I didn't even vote for. I especially dislike the use of "Good" and "Evil" being thrown around so much (particularly in Bush's speeches). People don't do things because they are "Evil", they do things because they think that they are right. Ok, I've got that out of my system. Bleah.

Conspiracy

I personally believe "they" tell you only what they want you to know. They think the "masses" are stupid, and for the most part, they are...those who think for themselves can see they are being manipulated.

But remember, it's not about oil...it's about gasoline!

I agree

I had exactly the same reaction to the "good" and "evil" stuff.

Nice entry...can't wait to see the commission up on your website (if you post it) ^_^
