New books and music

By August 13, 2009 March 28th, 2013 Art

I LOVE getting packages in the mail.  It doesn’t have to be a surprise either.  I ordered a couple of books online last week and coming home to see a BIG box sitting on my porch fills me with such excitement.  In fact knowing what was in it this time even made it more exciting.  Adding now to my currently 449 art book collection are these books (amongst one other that I ordered):

LOL… I can not express how inspirational Watterson’s work is to me.  Perfectly illustrated.  Funny.  Smart.  I know a lot of artists feel the same way.  It is a great day to finally get to say “I own that”

Speaking of inspirational … I was in the theater waiting to watch a movie called “Moon” (great movie by the way) when, in between two horrible country songs I heard what I thought was a song by Radiohead.  It turned out to be a group called Muse.  A song called “New Born” off their album “Origin of Symmetry”  … wow.  I was riveted to my seat and almost forgot to whip out my trusty iPhone and tag it with Shazam… later on that night I had the whole album.  The next day I lost track of how many times I let it play through.  Great music.  I will be making my way to the record store this weekend to pick up their entire discography.

    Im sure many of you are like me and one of the first things you do in the morning is head here and check out the new post. Along with seeing the new posts, I’m also always checking out the blog roll rss feed and watching them grow, or shrink sometimes. In one of my past …but all in all excellent site. Keep it up!

    Just wanted to drop you a line to say, I enjoy reading your site. I thought about starting a blog myself but don’t have the time.
    Oh well maybe one day…. 🙂
