  1. Doctor me up, Thumbs

    Are you making all your motions from the wrist or fingers? Try warming up with loose motions that come from the elbow or higher and see if you can incorporate that into your painting. I get death-grip aches when I write too "tightly," i.e. controlling the pen entirely with my fingers/hand/wrist; part of learning Spencerian and other hands was to spend some time trying to break that habit (it didn't completely work).
  2. I Had A Random Thought...

    I get Channing Tatum and Carol Channing confused all the time.
  3. Making friends?

    "hey, video games" only works if you're approaching jake.
  4. Life

    in the nonprofit 'ecosystem' by and large it has the same proportion of assholes as the for-profit world, everyone's just paid way less.
  5. Life

    It was a substance abuse treatment nonprofit and the director regularly screamed at employees. Even I couldn't see any positive in the place - and y'all know I have a skill for making the best of a bad lot - so I got out as soon as I could.

  11. San Francisco Residents!

    It wouldn't be fair my answering that question; I'm an expat Brit. SF and other conurbations on the ocean-adjacent edges of the country buck the USAian stereotype quite handily, replacing it with an amalgamated population of liberals, hipsters and immigrants (where "immigrant" might mean from Asia, Europe, or Portland). Compare NY/SF with somewhere more central, e.g. Peoria, and NY and SF will have more in common with each other. In conclusion, America is a land of contrasts.
  12. The threat of Big Dog

    Imagine waking up and all your eyelash mites have been replaced with those magnetic micro-robots.

    £30-40k, or $30-40k? If the latter, prepare to live out of a cupboard or something.
