Looking for a housemate
Well, I figured I hit up Facebook and other place, I prolly should hit up Livejournal too. I've been lurking here reading posts now and then, but not actually posting. Hell, I wonder if I should see if I can rig this up to grab my Sketchblog's RSS, too....

But anyways, I am here to post:



Two Geeks With Two Cats Looking For Housemate(s)
Master bedroom in a 2.5 bedroom apartment available for long term sublet.
Located in Medford, near Tufts, just over a mile walk from Davis Square.
(On Main St. near Frederick Ave.)
Convenient to 101, 96, 95, 94, & 80 bus routes.
2nd floor, 1100 square foot apartment (plus approximately same footage of
unfinished attic, easily accessible for storage, activities or studio
space). One bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, sun room and
balcony. Washer and dryer are in the apartment. Fully furnished kitchen
(with dishwasher) and living room. Shared living area has room for desks
and bookcases. Master bedroom has a large closet. Space for one car in
driveway, and lots of on street parking. Front and back yards.
(Space available for sublet is negotiable.)

No smokers.

We are both night people, and have been living with a couple of morning
people without problems. Our indoor-only cats are very friendly with
people, and reportedly low in allergens. Another cat would be welcome if
you have one (previous housemates’ male cat got along well with our male
cat, but avoided or hissed with our female cat). We like to occasionally
host gaming nights, movie nights, and costume parties.

$800/month (plus $150/month for utilities: heat, hot water, electricity
and internet) and $700 security deposit

Please provide references.

Paint spots, continued
On our way down to Dr Sketchy's on Sunday in Mike's car, I kept my eye out the window, and was able to keep track of the spots as they continued down JFK, on the bridge over the river, towards the stadium. But then I lost them again.

And on Monday on my way home, I picked them up on Summer street where they turned up Porter St. I found one end. On the sidewalk, in large white spray paint (and smaller in the gray green paint mostly illegible) it said:

This is the path I'd take every day just to see you

I don't know if I need to see the other end; it seems a personal message. But I'm curious what's written there, and who lives at these places.

Current Mood: appreciative

Paint spots
There's a trail of paint spots on the sidewalk through Cambridge and Somerville. I have yet to find the beginning and end. The spots are gray and light green, making them show up well on almost any background color. They're mostly along the western sidewalk of Massachusetts Ave (and under the heavy foot traffic on Mass Ave, many are harder to spot now), and farther apart than walking stride. I first noticed them a few weeks ago, and each time I'm in their vicinity, I try to follow one end a little bit farther depending on my destination. I've followed the southern end as far down as the Staples in Harvard Square, and the other end up past Porter Square, where they take a turn up White St, and meander up to the corner of Cedar and Summer (in some places they've been over-sprayed by a white spraypaint). Today I didn't feel like continuing following them in what would be sort of a backtrack from walking in the general direction of home, so I may just take an alternate route sometime next week and see where on Summer I can pick them up again.

Siddharta
Some years back when I still read 3D Total a bunch, they posted links to some nifty music videos for a Slovenian rock band, Siddharta. The videos were awesome from an animation standpoint, and I really enjoyed the music too (the two linked were "My Dice" and "Napoj"). I've gone back to their site regularly over the years to listen to some of the music via watching the music videos, as for a long time there didn't seem to be a good way to import their CDs, and there wasn't another way to listen to their songs. I overplay those two I originally heard, as well as "Rave", "Male Roke" and some others.
When I last checked their CD import prices, I stumbled upon their MP3s for download (finally) on Amazon! But it's Amazon.co.uk! ...Which means I can't buy them. I think it's rather silly.
So I'm stuck deciding if I should pay an outrageous amount to import and album or two or wait out their MP3 availability. Like many bands, I enjoy a few songs from one album and a few from another. Buying songs individually would be ideal.
Backup plan, I convince one of my UK friends to buy them for me. ;p

If you like rock music, check 'em out (especially if foreign languages is a plus).

Current Music: Siddharta - T.H.O.R.

Printy print?
I think I'm going to proceed like this: Big 10x16 prints unmatted - 10 copies each (but 15 of red), small 8x6.25 prints matted to 11x14 - 15 each (20 of red). I think this seems doable?
I haven't decided how I want 'em matted. When I was doing my last prints, I thought it'd be cool to leave in the edges of the paper under the mat, and you could look under and see them. So the signature is on both the print and the mat, so the numbering and title would show. Mat closed / Mat open
I could do that style again, or I could do what I've seen other artists do by leaving a small (say 1/4") border of paper beyond the image with room to sign print and not bother unnecessarily signing mat too. Exhibit B
Opinions?

Damnit, who was I talking to at Jake's party who said they knew a good place to purchase stainless steel rings?


In other news, who is going to PiCon this year and would like to split a room many ways, in which I can share a bed (only with someone who's the right kind of friend..) or sleep in a cot cheaply?

Printy print!
I'm making prints of my dragons! I haven't decided how many to do, yet, though. I'm going to do some at 10x16 (actual size [but it seems much bigger to me])unmatted, and some at 10x6.25 matted to fit in 14x11 frames.
I was originally thinking of doing 15 each, like last time, but assuming these might actually sell, unlike last time. But maybe only 10 each of the big ones, might be better, so I don't end up with too many? And maybe it would make sense to make more of the red dragon than the other ones, knowing people like him more?

I still have a bunch of color correction to do, and do my first trial large format print to make sure 266 dpi will be sufficient (I'd been hoping for 288), or if I'll need to do a reshoot.
Once I have all my prints make, I need to pop by my local post office and get info about shipping rates, and then I can start that Etsy store I've been planning. I'm also gonna have t-shirts!

Sarah's Sketchblog
So, I started a sketchblog on my own website: Sketchblog! Check it out. :)
I think I'll try and post at least weekly, if not more.
Steve and I are still working out the bugs, and tweaking the layout. I want the thumbnails for previous entries to be up on the right if I can, for example.
