I came across this video on the website of a fellow blogger. Since then I've been listening to it nonstop. Its a beautiful song sang by a beautiful person. You might recognize her as the lead singer of the 90's trip-hop band Morcheeba. Enjoy!
Im enrolled in Art 102 in order to complete my art minor at NIU. We're working with Photoshop a hell of a lot which I am not very familiar with. So far we have done 3 projects. Im just now finishig up my 4th one and this Thursday I turn it in. I need an "A" in this class, but so far my grades have been all across the board; a "B" on the first, "A" on the second and then a "C" on the third (sadly). So as you see, I need to get an "A" overall. Im posting them. What d'ya think?
For this project I had to creat post cards that represent my school(NIU) and town (DeKlab).
I got an "A". I was trying to be funny. Dekalb is known for its corn and terrible water, so I thought to play with that a little bit.
For this one here I had to show contrast between life and death. For example Tomatoe- Ketchup bottle or Snowman- wet spot. I procratinated on this project. We had 3 weeks to do it and I ended up doing it the day before it was due :(
He could tell it was half ass and gave me what I deserved: a big fat "C". If you cant already tell, mine depicts the death of a forest for toilet paper. CLEVER....not!
For this one I have to mix text with images. Pick a letter and things that begin with it and play around. I picked "O". O is for: Obama, Owl, Orange, Ocean, Ornatment and Orchid. Im not very satisfied but this the best I can do with my limited skills.
Ok, thats it for now. Ill tell you what grade I got on this last one here.
Sometimes I get so sick and tired of hearing about peoples problems. Deal with it, Ok!? I hate wallowing in self pitty and the pathetic searching for a reason to be unhappy. There is so much to be grateful for. I have stuggled too, with depression and Im trying hard to push past it. Im pushing. I am pushing!! Im not claiming this damned disease any longer and neither should you. Lets pull our selves up by our freakin' bootstraps and be adluts. Im not saying adults can't be sad, Im just saying being in a constant vunerability and rollercoastery (is that word?) is not healthy or progressive. Lets change <3
Sydney sent me a link to this video. The artist is Santogold. Shes a black girl from Philly (which is cool). Her styles include New wave, Psychobilly, pop...lots of stuff. I dont know much about her yet, but Ive kinda got a crush on this song. The video is a tad bit disturbing , but the lyrics are good. scroll down and listen without the video if you must.
