Hello Again

Ok, I'm back - in a manner of speaking.

I have now surfaced from my thesis writing fury. I have written the entire thing (Yay!!!!), but I am still working on revisions and formatting (which is a big pain since I have 100+ figures that need to be included and any time I alter a line enough to move a word, it messes up my images. Woe is me). However, I am going to try and get back into the groove of posting my critques again! There are going to be a few changes...

First of all, I think I am not going to allow myself to be tied down to any real list. If any of you know me at all, you know I hate being put in a box (which is why I just got rid of my facebook page), even though I know this puts me into a certain box, I like that I'm the one sharing on this more than creating a certain perception of myself. Anyway, right now I am working on putting all of my books, movies, and comics into an excel sheet, and it has inspired me. I own so many AMAZING works that I think I want to share some of them. Now, keep in mind, not all of my stuff is always good - some were gifts and I have been known to impulse buy some pretty bad items. However, I am going to work through my own collection of movies and comics and why others should own them too!

I am also going to try and post twice a week like I was doing, but we shall see how long that lasts for me (hopefully for a good long time). I will probably also be posting some of my artwork as well - stuff I've been working on or randomly made or painted to give away.

I am going to leave you with two things though before I go: The first being this amazing website: - you can stroll through museums and get close up views of the artwok! I love love LOVE it! Plus, the best of the best, you can set up your own collection of your favorite works of art! It makes me want to go visit the museums of course, but I love being able to see the Uffizi, which I've never gotten a chance to see in person. Plus, they have one of my favorite museums of all time on there: the Frick! So good! Defintely, go check it out.

The last thing I will leave you with is a little picture I created for a friend who is in love with Poe's "Annabelle Lee." This image was supposed to represent the end of the poem (the whole poem is beautiful and you should read it - http://http//
Sorry it is a little blurry and fuzzy. I'm including two close-ups as well -

That's all I have for you today. Hopefully, I'll be back Tuesday night!
