Paintings, Batman R.I.P, and Watchmen

I’m currently in the beginning stages of doing two new paintings. (As you all know, I’m not big on painting at all.)

Obviously these paintings are for class.

The theme I am going to be centering these paintings around will be “deception.” ..and possibly throw in the idea of “sleep” (ya know, like “how” we sleep, “why” we sleep; things like that). Both ideas came from listening to a few episodes of Radio Lab. (You guys should give it a listen, you might like it.) Anyway, I’ll be showing off those in the coming weeks as I become closer to finishing them. (I hope they come out decent enough.)

So I’ve been patiently waiting for my Batman Graphic Novel, “R.I.P.” to come in the mail only to have it take FOREVER! I preordered my copy two weeks ago and it was shipped 7 days ago. I have the tracking number and it says it’s been stalled in Dallas since early morning Thursday! What gives?!

Sure it was a great deal (I got it at, but come on.. I’ve never had a package take this long before. Urgh.

Anyhow, should I go and purchase the tickets for the midnight showing of Watchmen already? It’s gunna be a big event, I think I should. What do you guys think? Are any of you still interested in it since the trailer was unleashed at the beginning of The Dark Knight?

I guess I have been rambled enough for tonight. Seeya around!

I actually don't know what to expect.

Visually speaking, it tickles my fancy but I know how much of a dumbass Zack Snyder (the director) is.. so, there is an uncertainty about it that makes me iffy.

I like the MCR single for the movie so that's good, right? *gulp* rofl
