What's up, blog?

I haven't been here in a while. I dunno why, it's just kind of the way I go with web-things.

My website hasn't been updated in ages, either.

Anyhow, here's some neat shit to check out:

I haven't been this excited about an Amorphis album since the first time I heard Elegy back in 1995. Put this high on your gotta-hear-it list.

This is a bit pricey, but is a fantastic resource for any fan of Tim Powers. Not only does it feature an in-depth list of all known published editions of his many novels - complete with pictures of the covers in all sorts of languages - but it has never before seen drawings and poems along with huge sections from rough drafts and unpublished novels - all with Powers' own handwritten notes.

Nothing new here - they've been around since forever. But I never had one before so I didn't know how huge they sound. I have two now. I feel like a fucking king with them stacked on top of each other. Now I know why bands play in front of huge walls of them. Even if they're not plugged in, they're pretty nifty to behold.

Here you go:

I've gotten into my head some sort of crazy scheme for a painting. This is what could be the first step toward achieving some kind of something else. In order to complete the scheme, however, I should probably learn what the hell I'm doing when I'm slapping paint around.

Here's a charcoal sketch and the underpainting (which consisted of simultaneous build-up, painting wet-into-wet in some spots.)

Finished Tree

There is another post a few weeks back about the tree painting.

I think it's finished, so here are some pictures - one of which features my fancy new easel.
