12/22/07 02:28 pm - immecrazyhead - Fall portfolio

Hey you guys! I'm done with the first quarter of my graphic design program! It's been sooooo nice to have a break--hope you are all getting one too. I wanted to show everyone what I've been up to for the past 3 months, so I made a post of some of the work I did for my classes. I'm gonna try to do one of these each quarter. This one is my Fall 07 portfolio.

Have a good Christmas everybody =)

Where are you from? Singapore.

What are your creative interests? Troll-slaying and all round literary terrorism. I metaphorically steal flags, deface walls, and widdle on their best carpets.

Hey all. Sorry I haven't been posting prompts. I've been incredibly busy/sleep deprived since starting school. One good thing I got from school though is that one of my friends directed me to this website for some good ideas. I've heard that with Miranda July you either hate her or love her, but...I dunno--I just like her assignments. So what do you guys think? Wanna try a few of these? I promise I won't make you do anything TOO hippie-ish.

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain....
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall; But God's always ready, to answer your call....
He knows every heartache, sees every tear; a word from His lips, can calm every fear...
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, but suddenly vanish with dawn's early light...
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above, to give you His grace, and send you His love...

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

Any other poets in the house? I wanna read your stuff! Post anything you want--just something to introduce us to your writing. If you want we'll critique it too. But don't worry--anyone who isn't nice about it will get a royal butt kicking from me. *intimidating face*

This week's prompt comes courtesy of my new friend, ldwheeler, who writes in his journal:

Writing that Madeleine L'Engle post a couple days ago sparked my curiosity. I'd be interested in hearing from the friends-list (or some sizable portion thereof) as well as any kind visitors/lurkers the books that have permeated your lives, that stay with you on some gut-level, or at the very least you just found yourself uttering "Wow" over and over when you finished 'em. Name as many as you like (though you might want to keep it under 20, heh), and feel free to say something about 'em. (You certainly needn't wax as prolix as I do below.) I may learn a little bit about some of you; at the very least, I'll get some learned recommendations of stuff to add to the Read-This-Someday stack before it topples over and claims my life.


So what about you? What books have changed your life? I'm interested to know as well--might even make some additions to my reading list =)

9/10/07 11:16 am - immecrazyhead - THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A TESSERACT

ldwheeler :

Almost anybody who loves books has at least one author, sometimes a half-dozen or so, whose imagery or philosophy or characters or stylings take up residence deep within the reader's being, who become more than just favorite writers but rather contributors to the way he or she sees and/or lives life. Sometimes you'll really be lucky, and a couple of these folks will still be alive.

This year I've lost two of them so far, with the deaths of Kurt Vonnegut and now Madeleine L'Engle.

9/4/07 04:21 pm - immecrazyhead - Idols

Exodus 20:4

You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

A few questions:

1. Am I just imagining it, or was this commandment nonexistent in Catholic bibles at one time? I'm certain I remember reading a version of the ten commandments that excluded that phrase, but the online Catholic sources I've found now read virtually the same as Protestant ones. If the version has changed, why was that phrase excluded and then reintroduced? I'm thinking that it was excluded because it was one of the main forces of the Protestant revolution, and that it was reintroduced after Vatican II, but I don't know for sure. Any thoughts?

2. In light of the age we live in, what else does this commandment entail? The idols of the OT were mysteriously powerful, yet could impose no rule over those who worshiped them. Because they were beautiful they offered tangible awe. Because that beauty was created by man, it discretely and simultaneously offered worship of self. It's the perfect recipe for false worship, constantly aided by man's imagination. It seems the variety of false idols and the mediums that present them are on par with man's technological advances. There are those who believe some of these mediums are inherently more productive, logical, or holy, than others. And there are some who believe that God can be glorified through one medium just as well as any other. What do you think?
