Post "I saw a cat that was a ruin of a cat"
I found gothling a few weeks back, and someplace local seemed more attractive than other 'Net spots I've been. I've lived in the Cities since '97, but haven't explored the gothy bits, much.

Sometimes I'm an artist, but not often enough. My latest scribblings have been furniture designs. This Fall I'm heading to Southeast MN to harvest some barn wood and build some odd cabinets for the many too many things I collect (books, toys, surgical tools, a mummified cat, etc.). After that, it's back to some drawing and sculpture.

I like a range of music. Today it was old Black Flag, last week Metallica, and last month I was yelling song titles at Suzanne Vega from my seat at the Fitzgerald Theater. And I live just blocks from where I saw this event in '79: http://www.kissonline.com/archives/phot ... index.html

I look forward to reading through some of what I've missed... over several cups of murky coffee.

Hello, everyone.

You can see my pussy for $25. :)

Welcome Veinsplasher. :) Hope you enjoy your stay with us. You can check out but you can never leave. . . .

My sister had a dead cat once in her freezer for a year. She was making him a coffin and it was so ornate it took a year to do.

And we don't live too far apart, I don't think. . . .

So why do you have a link to dark twin cities but not gothling on your site? Eh? Eh?

And whyfore a dessicated feline? How did you procure this most docile creature?

Gothling's link is next... the rest of the site is incomplete, as well.

The cat spent years under a house... resting. The house was built around the 1870's, so who knows how long that nap lasted. I acquired it from a renovator who found its hiding place.

Old... so very old. The kitty's sad, peaceful image tugged at me.

Hmmm.

Reminds me of this crow wing my sister found.

Not as interesting as a cat, but still kinda cool.

We kept it until we were forced to throw it away. .

Welcome!

Once, at band camp. . . .

Um, actually I grew up in the country and my little sister and I once discovered the remains of a dead horse. All it was was the skeleton and we lugged as much of it home as we could. Mom wasn't appreciative and the skull really freaked me out after a while so we put it back where we found it. I was maybe ten at the time. . . .

After growing up in the mountains of montana, I had seen many a dead animal. When we found the rusted hulk of automobile: now <i>that</i> was fun!

A paradise for the mind.

I'm not much into the building, yet. As soon as my uncle vacates the ancestral farm, I get to grab as much old wood as I can ferry from tumbled farm buildings. My brother has a wood shop, with lots of power tools, and together we're going to do a lot of "measure twice... cut once" this Fall.

All designs, until then.

Ya know, Splashy, (is it okay if I call you Splashy?), I myself have been on a long and arduous quest for some time now.

I've been looking for an artist.

I, myself, am a writer, and while not completely laking in the scribbing arena, I am not exactly a Masamune Shirow, either.

So I've been looking for someone with decent artistic abilities to help on this project I've been trying to work on.

So, I'm wondering, when your not designing furniture, what are your styles?

You can call me "Splashy"... sure. Better than "Veiny", I guess.

I'm not sure if I have a style yet.

I like some of the simple work these folks do: http://www.yumfactory.com/ I have no experience with manga. My favorites fall more in a horror or scifi category.

Your work is truly beautiful, Splashy.

Horror and sci-fi is mainly what I do. With great huge splashes at humor.

Well, I try to be humorous.
.
.
.
.
.

I guess I'll have to leave the humor up to the interperation of the audience.

Actually, your work kinda reminds of this one style I was experimenting with for a while. . .

But anyway. .

Do you know of ANY free artists?

I'm beggin ya.

You've got to know someone, or at least know someone who knows someone!

Oh well, I guess I'm just getting a little desperate.

I apologize.

Your work is awesome, though.

I'm not sure whose work you mean... but it isn't mine.

The link I quoted belongs to others.

mmmm, power tools..... happy thoughts.

measure twice, cut once. lol - my dad always told us that when we were kids.

im not very artistic - all my furniture is very basic and plain in design. the curio cabinet was the most complicated thing ive made so far. and glass is expensive. my artistic abilities are more along the lines of if you design it, i can make it.

what kind of furniture are you designing?

I'm torn between building something completely functional or something functional and bizarre. Here are a few photos of other people's work I posted on my site to share with my brother:

Functional.

I like Bizzarre, but it will eventually get really old, while something purely functional you can look at for a long time, and then just stop looking at it once your bored with it, and just use it.

A Bizzarre object commands continual lookage.

You don't want that in something you've gotta use for years on end.

I want all my furniture to be the same style and colors and materials as the very bottom right hand picture.

And then invite all my stoner friends over.

I wouldn't mind a few simple pieces of furniture, but one good nightmare of a cabinet to disturb visitors, yes, that'd be good.

I want a whole house of it. *heh* Imagine. If one piece can fuck with someone's mind, a whole house will simply melt it. *grin*

i like the chests with the different size drawers (trippy on the eyes)
and the funky twisted curio cabinet thing. looks like something out of a funhouse mirror.

I really want an odd office/art supply cabinet, with removable trays and custom-fit drawers for things like markers, paints, mailing supplies. The exterior could have drawers of many sizes, drawers that aren't drawers... so many options.

The current tenant will soon leave the land my parents just purchased... and then I can start gathering old barn wood to build these things.

Yes, secret drawers and compartments... for condoms, Schedule II medications, firearms, campaign literature, etc.

Ninja...Ninja.

the plural of ninja is ninja.

whatever...

Furniture is fun...but my expertise in woodworking ends at the lathe. I make some awesome pens and stuff.

Wow...that sounds lame.
