Creature comforts

One of my personal favorite creations.  A group of strange little creatures that have formed a band.  The band comprises of an accordionist, 2 flute players, and a female vocalist up front.  :)

Guess I just can't help the fact that I'm really looking forward to Poland/Ukraine this year.  I don't hold any hopes for England progressing out of the group stages though.  I'm such a loyal fan! rofl

Feeling all nostalgic now

Wow!  Wondrous feelings can be obtained if you accidentally find old stuff from the past.  Having not put the effort in looking before, it had been ages since I've seen those old artworks, photos and documents.  These were stored on an old hard drive from one of my first ever PC computers.  I didn't even know I had it still.

It was great to see pictures of old friends from the net that I first chatted away with on my first ever PC.  A very emotional journey I had wading through old folders and files.  I even had old digital artwork that I made during the years of 2000 and 2001.  It's great to see how far I've come in terms of my ability, I've learned a lot from other people during the Interwebz.

Nostalgia rulz!

Angelina Jolie!  One of my first ever digital portraits! Hurrah!

Moving... and other things.

Moving is a bit of a daunting time.  So much to think about, so much to worry and chew over.  After being in the same location over a 11 year period, it's gonna feel really strange starting out again elsewhere.
In the meantime, I have to get rid of a whole load of stuff.  Including things that have been in my life since I was a kid.  The memories I keep, but the objects themselves I'm not so fussed about.  These consist of collectible items such as Star Wars toys and Transformers.  I guess I'm all grown up now, so there's no need to keep them anymore.  Still, I'm a kind of fan of Star Wars but not as much as I used to be.
I really DO hope though that moving can be the start of something new, and fresh.  If I'm being honest, the past 10 years have been a mixed bag of bad and good memories, but mostly bad.  It will be good to put a lot of stuff behind me.

Wish me luck.

How did I allow myself to...

Get into matters of being interested in strange phenomena again.  It's something I used to read up a lot about when I was still in Secondary school and at the age of 12.
I guess there's nothing wrong with that, it's just that in terms of what's true or not, there's so much disinfo out there.  The stuff that can confuse your mind a little, where you get the crazies.  But there's also some really credible information out there too that can open your mind a little.
I think myself, if there are aliens that are visiting our planet.  I would really like to know if they believe in God, or are spiritual (or more so) than ourselves.  It's food for thought.  Since we look up to the stars at night, and we wonder sometimes about our background, or basically how we came to be.  I wonder if they think on the same thoughts?
I guess I would also like to know if they value life more than we do?  We live but once, and we are sometimes so negative.  We build things, then we destroy it.

I could really imagine this scenario where these highly intelligent beings look up another planet which is capable of life through a form of telescope.  Which then they would travel through their advanced technology to explore.  Just like Christopher Columbus did to discover unknown territories.  Then they discover primitive tribes, capable of being influenced.

I guess I read too much of Chariots of the Gods... but sometimes (for me anyway because I know how much people hated that book) some things slot into place.

A New Year

Had no idea what happened to my previous blog entry.  I wrote a short paragraph, but it's disappeared.


A start of a new year, 2012 ... Where there's going to be a supposed Armageddon.  It is hyped up bullshit really in my opinion, designed to put the fear of God into us all.  In reality though, for the world things can only get better can't it?  At least I'd like to think that there's something really exciting, as in the word "progress".
It's crazy, but I happen to believe there's something good around the corner, like some magnificent breakthrough that the world can benefit from.  And no, I'm not psychic, it's more on the lines of being "hopeful".

Happy New Year
