I stumbled upon this interesting website a bit ago & thought I’d share: WeFeelFine.org. Self Described as an exploration in human emotion on a global scale, this web app essentially crawls the social web searching for emotion based statements. They are all pulled out & compiled in a nifty little interactive interface. I’ve taken screenshots of a few statements that I loved, but there were zillions more to look through. You should check it out.
Oh hey. Anime Boston 2011. Convention was held at the Sheraton / Hynes Convention Center in metro Boston. This was my first anime convention and I was blown away by the sheer creativity and enthusiasm. Aside from what seemed like 5 miles of walking and navigating through extremely dense throngs of people, the most fascinating part of this experience was hands down the costumes that people wore. We’re talking full riot gear, i’ve-been-making-this-costume-for-over-a-year, decked out to the max.
I took photos! Lots. I had some technical difficulties in the form of dead batteries and at one point had to resort to iphone snaps– But I feel the need to release these to the vast great internet anyway, because it’s amazing what people are making and doing.
Photo snapped in Rochester, NH.
The tree is up! I can’t believe it’s December & so close to the end of 2010. Seems like this year flew by. I’m planning to start (and hopefully finish!) my Christmas shopping tomorrow. :-)
Some interesting flickr finds for your holiday:
If you’re in need of a last minute pie recipe for your Thanksgiving festivities tomorrow, I can vouch for the tastiness of this recipe: Cranberry Apple Crumble Pie. (I cheated & used store bought pie crust – but it was still a crowdpleaser.) :-)
Last week I…..
Cut a bazillion sheets of wall decals…
And shipped them all out:
Bought some new tubes of watercolor paint. (I’m currently getting reacquainted):
Was the recipient of a pretty bouquet of flowers:
Also, I didn’t take photos but, I visited the open studios event at the Salmon Falls mill in Rollinsford, NH. I covet the artist spaces in these buildings – large windows, paint splatter floors – it reminds me of art school. There were many talented artists exhibiting this weekend & the building holds open studio events twice a year, more info at their website: millartists.com
A few more photos from my trip to New Orleans last week. The signage in the French Quarter is amazing – lots of neon and flashy slogans, but there’s also lots of interesting little shops sprinkled throughout this area that have hand painted signs. Something about having a hand stenciled sign just really adds to the ambiance of a shop selling voodoo dolls.
