design, graphic & interior.
the intersection of philosophy & sociology.
emergent gameplay, of the videogaming variety.
deep fried everything.
making lists, including this one of my life's ambitions, and these of things on my mind at the time.
i took a trip! read about it here.
evidence of my lame yuppie side on my (gasp!) house blog here.
I considered prefacing this thing with some mumbo jumbo about how I often end up in weird corners of the internet for no good reason, but somehow I have the feeling that’s not necessary. Anyways, on one of my recent trips down the information superhighway (remember when people still called it that?) I stumbled across this pretty chick and her utterly arresting makeup tutorials. Not only is she able to use makeup to transform her race and ethnicity, like in her Angelina Jolie tutorial…:

She also has a pet owl named Dumbo, which makes me green with envy…
… aaaaand she has nerd cred. Here’s her Kitana from Mortal Kombat look:
Dig around her channel, and you’ll also find tutorials for other scifi and videogame looks, as well as other weird stuff (Lil’ Wayne?!). Careful tho’… it starts with one video, and before you know it, you’ve watched ‘em all.

making it into the mob again yesterday, but having the one take the $$ (again).
being the 5th best player in the crowd, yet coming in as the #3 winner of that day’s arcade game (marvel vs. capcom 2), and how that might be possible.
