way back when

when: adv. : during the time at which; while.

The Salivation Army, back when zines were cool and the kids could still read and write. before the...

oh, fuck that old line about 'oh the world of sell outs hiphop and zines and rock music suck now cause everything is about the money, and even raves are not cool anymore'.

cool shit is out there. you can find it. sometimes you can even make it, write it, and hold big fat drunkfests to promote it. text based gaming is -not- dead or dying, 8-bit is still where it is at, and V-fuckin-R is in the wings and I can't fucking wait for it. and saying FUCK is still cool, even if it isn't. fuckityfuckfuck mano.

so, the search for employment continues, and once again I grow weary of the dance. resumes sent, interviews had, waiting for callbacks, bullshitting people who are bullshitting you. all a pile of doublethink. sarah should never have let me start reading 1984, it will ruin my brain. oh yes. oh baby baby baby, fuck me, slow and gentle until we both end up weeping, dripping sweat onto ikea sheets in the humid air. remember way back when, hiding in a basement sharing something forbidden and illicit? never has a shower felt so good as with you.

[ 01/02/05 ] Inversion of the grid

grid n. an electrode placed between the cathode and anode of a vacuum tube to control the flow of electrons through the tube.

Yes, the learning fun never stops here at Marcus Riedner - Art 321! New words, old words, new strange definitions. All the fun of a root canal without the anesthetic!

So, pretty sure I have the initial concept for my site down. I am basing it off a series of drawings I did in my fourth year. I did three small drawings a day on rice paper for about a year. I am thinking of using torn rice paper squares as the back-drop for my primary interface. Haven't quite figured out the logistics of all that, but I can see it in my minds eye. It will keep a nice mono-tone state and a minimalist feel. I hope. I will have to experiment a bit to see how it all works.

As usual, when I work on things they tend to change and alter a lot as they go along. I shall have to see where this idea leads.

[ 25/01/05 ] - Epiphanies for today.

[b]e•piph•a•nies[/b] [i]n. pl.[/i] - A Christian feast celebrating the manifestation of the divine nature of Jesus to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi.

Ah, the joys of non-common definitions of commonly used words.

Epiphanies for today:

1) I have the ablity to start a cult, sect, or religion.

2) People do stupid things because they are scared of death.

3) Entropy can be fought 1 row of desks at a time.

[ 20/01/05 - 1:20PM ] the Trinity of web design

Trinity n. - nuclear test location in New Mexico, United States of America.

All righty then, here is the location of my website for Art 321. If you are wanting to take a look at things over there, feel free. I'll post a holla when I change things. Usually. At a later date if I have the space I may shoot it over to a full website URL.

(Universal Resource Locator, Ultimate Redirected Link, Uber Reichsdad Liberator.)

Oh, and for anyone who cares, some friends and I are working on a new shooter. We call it the Klitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang. (Named after this girl my nephew knows. She was cursed with the last name Klit.)

Anyhow, the shot is:

1/3 Red Sourpuss, 1/3 Vodka, 1/3 Gin or White Curacao
