as you may have noticed, this is a painting-less post. why? well, i live in LA now! i moved here about a week and a half ago! it's been a pretty big/crazy/cool change. i'm here with just two suitcases and my guitar waiting for all my stuff to get shipped here. i set it up so that my paint was separate from the rest of my crap and would arrive here a few days after i did. when i got here, i did a bulk order of 100 canvases. i had it all figured out. plus, i made sure i had a backlog of paintings so i could keep posting once a day until my paint arrived.
my paint has yet to arrive :( it got returned to sender for some reason. so i'm here with 100 canvases and my paint is on it's way back to Pittsburgh. i thought i did everything i needed to do to give you uninterrupted, Free Painting service. turns out i was wrong. so i apologize. as soon as my stuff gets here i'll start arting for you again!

i've expressed my hatred for portmanteaux in the past. sporks are physical portmanteaux. it's so fitting because the way a spork makes you feel is also my reaction to this literary device. you just want to sip your soup and you get stabbed in the tongue. or you want to pick up your chicken but you can't stab it deep enough to stop it from falling off before making it to your mouth. it's just all around annoying and uncomfortable. uncomfortnnoying.

in the intro of Tom and Jerry cartoons, Tom is pictured inside an O and he repeatedly stretches his neck upwards to tap/smoosh his head on the surface above him (see image below). i remember watching as a kid and thinking it was odd. i wondered why the animators made him do that. now i know.

this request made me think about what it would be like if pickles were a movie snack. then i thought, "nah, that wouldn't be good because they're crunchy". which lead me to... how did popcorn end up being THE movie snack?! it's super noisy. come on, culture! it should be angel food cake or cottage cheese or crustless peanut butter sandwiches or something.
