Title: Gilead the seer: I will draw how you'll die
Post by: Gilead on 01 Apr 2009, 05:35
Gather round children, step up to my crystal ball and I will draw how you will end up shuffling off this mortal coil, for I am Gilead Machiavelli, SEER OF THE UNKNOWN!

First up is Andy, her hair grew so giant and thick that it has sucked the life out of her and gained sentience.

Vern (and any other new/lurker forumites planing on posting here) you do realise that it would be kinda hard for tom to draw you considering you've never actually posted a picture of yourself, and no one on the forums know particularly much about you.

(you can tell when I've actually got work to be doing because I'm posting at like 10 times my normal rate)

Title: Re: Gilead the seer: I will draw how you'll die
Post by: LittleKey on 01 Apr 2009, 22:58
I'm not denying they're good; I agree they're delicious. it's just, thin mints are even better.

On a related note, I read about someone who bought five boxes of cookies from the girl scouts, and after walking away he opened the boxes and found out they were filled with rocks. I don't know for sure if this is a true story, but I'm definitely going to be careful from now on.

Take care,

Since last time I checked these threads are not a job and they're instead something I do for fun and to have something new and creative to inspire me to draw, maybe I should work on whatever thread I want.

Ohh I recently got Tom to draw my futile attempts at being punk rock.

There is no rock 'n' roll left in New York. Everyone's playing fucking post-this or math-that. The last legitimate punk rock show I went to was in a public park in Williamsburg, with Tommy, Phil, Tyler, and Huda.

No I lied, I have seen SHAPES (http://www.myspace.com/shapesband) a bunch lately, but I've been coming to their shows as a photographer which prevents me from moshing too much. I did get super into it and was photographing from inside the sweaty, insane crowd (and standing on monitors, dangling off shit to get shots) last time. I posted the results in the Photo Thread (and cross-posted in the photography thread) last week.

Eugene I am sorry but I just don't believe that. I mean, I'll buy that there are a lot of post-math-shit bands around in NYC but shit I refuse to accept that there is no DIY punk scene in fucking new york city. No way. Especially not if ABC No Rio is still standing.

Precious few punk bands left, and even less with any talent. There is a lot of great music, to be sure, but it seems like the appeal of simple music you can rock out to is lost to those making it. Everything has to be pushing the boundaries or creating something new (only it's all exactly the same). Which sucks, cause all I want is a punk rock band. I am a better guitar player than that and I can do more intricate things but it's simply not as fun at this point.

MrBlu, those aren't photos I took, they are photos with me in them. I am the one wearing the checked red shirt (and then not wearing it).

(But thank you)

Gene go to ABC No Rio this saturday. I looked at their website and noticed Hjertestop is playing there saturday. They are just some dudes from Denmark but DC is going fucking crazy over the show they are supposed to play thursday here. They play simple, fun, and catchy punk.

I mean they are a touring band but you might catch a nice local act/near local act there as well.

My band is playing this Saturday, unfortunately.

ABC No Rio is a cool place, yeah. Punk isn't gone, it's just at a bare minimum right now.

There are so many people taking pictures.

Why.

Why can't a thing just exist in a point in time and that's when it existed and everyone is okay with that?

Well, all of the people with photo or video cameras at that particular event (and most of the things I attend) were doing so as a favor to the bands. Bands like photo and video evidence of their concerts! It's great for promotion among other things.

I do, however, agree with you when it comes to teenagers taking portable point-and-shoot cameras everywhere and taking pictures of themselves doing absolutely nothing so that they can go on Facebook and everyone can see how their friends were doing absolutely nothing.

There are very few pictures of me for this exact reason. What is funny is that my ex girlfriend is exactly like that. She has like 600+ photos on her facebook and there are only like 6 that are different.

I have maybe 3 new photos of me every year, on average. Out of those, maybe 4 are different. I don't want to think about 600+ photos.

I've never said I was good at simple math but something about this post makes no sense to me.

I thought he was trying to be clever by saying that his photos are so extremely different it's like there are 4 not 3.
