Art or insanity? You decide.

This is a wacky thing. Check out the pic. This is an example of this guys 'art'. Sure art can take almost any form and still be called art. I have no problem with that. This 'art' is pretty interesting. It is unique and makes you think 'what is he going to do next'. Anyway, check out the article and see some more.

Thanks to the Okester for the link.

Ooooh Naughty!

Sometimes things make me laugh out loud and I have to share even if they are a little on the edgy side. Forgive me if this offends you and good for you if it makes you blush! (that was for you DW ;) )

Thanks to HockeyGuy for the pic.

Clariticity Defined

It's official, on the internet anyway, 'Clariticity' is now defined as Clarity.
It's called the Big Word Project and it may just be one of those "Hey, everyone send me a dollar!" internet goofs, but you never know. It could be the next Google or Twitter or... hell I don't know but it does seem a little cool to be able to 'buy' a word and redefine it.

Words to live by...

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”
The immortal words of Dr. Seuss.
At first it sounds a little trite and quaint, much like most of Dr. Seuss' rhymes in his books. However, for me, when I first read this quote sent from DW the other day it hit a deep place in my soul as the last few words rolled off my tongue. It was one of those moments when you know you are feeling pure truth. It sank down into the deepest part of my being. I literally felt it and it hit a place that I haven't been feeling much lately.
My very first reaction to reading this was a thought of, "I am absolutely going to do this." I felt that it was so true that I would just let it all hang out and just say whatever I was thinking and feeling and let the chips fall where they may. If I offend someone that matters to me, they love me enough to let it slide. If I offend someone that doesn't matter to me then who cares.
Of course my resolve lasted all of about 30 seconds when I started picturing myself actually doing this. I lost my nerve as quickly as an ocean wave retreats back down the beach after giving it's all at my feet. I felt weak and wussy. Yes wussy is a word so shutup! (Actually it is. If you're lucky enough to be on a Mac, just right click here on wussy and select 'Look Up in Dictionary' and you'll see the definition. Neat huh?).
I would love to actually put this into action even for a day and see what happens. I am afraid it would be disastrous but what if it wasn't? What if it was miraculous in it's effect? What if Dr. Seuss is actually right? It could be life changing. Alas, my overthinking mind keeps me from pulling the trigger. I have learned something about myself in the last few years. I am the most misunderstood person I know. I say this out loud occasionally and people laugh at me. I am perplexed by this behavior. It seriously does not seem funny to me at all. Ironic. Whatever. That is what keeps from following through. I would be thinking I was performing this grand experiment, a soul freeing act of verbal escape and freedom. I would probably end up getting fired, getting slapped and sending everyone I love running away in tears.
What to do?
