What is this place? This place used to be a joint blog between my wife and I. In fact I think if you dig far enough down you’ll find some of her original posts. It was a self help, feel good, get life in order, etc, sorta blog. It honestly sort of fell to the way side. In that time period though I discovered something that I like! I like to blog about science crap.
I am not a scientist or even close to being one. I’m a mere designer of graphics, webs, video, audio and whatever else might need designing. Growing up I found myself stuck between two worlds: Creativity and Technical. Creativity won out because it’s just easier to land a job. That hasn’t stopped my endless quest for knowledge.
I want to know how everything works, from myself to the Universe. Don’t get me wrong, creativity and the like is in my blood. In fact, I think it helps me to try an understand the world around me more. 😀
So, I like to draw silly comics as well, which you will see here and there. I used to be a LOT better at drawing. Using a computer to do all the drawing for you really puts a thick layer of rust on illustration. I’m also a bit impatient with hand drawing so I will rush to get it done. It’s ok, as long as the point is gotten across.
Another thing I hope to do very soon are videos. Video production is fun when it’s self-fulfilling and not for someone tapping their foot waiting on you. What will they be about? Things that interest me. The thing is, it seems that a true interest in science is declining here in the states, overall. I think that’s a sad shame. Instead we’re inundated with a media spin on every science story (politics, world destruction, lolcats). It’s hardly ever presented in a fashion of “this is just plain cool”. I’d like to make it what it is: awesome.
Soon this blog will move, along with all relevant postings, to a new domain. I must figure out what it will be called.
