Dominoes or How Computers really work

DOMINOES

(inspired by an illustration by Jessica Walsh)



I finally understand

how computers really work.

the button that you push

is the first domino.

And behind the facade

it pushes yet another,

and that pushes another

and so forth down the line;

until at the end

you've issued a command,

which trips another

row of dominoes

to fall down in line

to finish the task.



Want some proof?

Shake your… Continue

"how to be a Lolita"?

So during my daily EGL stalk I come across this. This blog post will basically be my two cents based off what I've read (on the link previously mentioned).

I am thoroughly annoyed by the Lolita community's intolerance towards…

how to ~ easy hime (princess) hairstyle

Works on wavy, straight or mildly curly hair, and requires soft layers. It can be worn with or without bangs (fringe) both straight-across or side bangs can look good. Hair must be longer than shoulder length (extensions can be used). It probably works on wigs, but I haven't tried it.…

Quatros - collect them all

QUATROS



half opened

half closed



drawing - painting

classical - romantic



particle - wave

mass - force



some people row

some people drift



in my dreams

I can fly



What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning.… Continue

Return of Quizzicals

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

Bear with me on this - it rambles. A scientist, in 1900, took some chicken wire and a board and made a maze to test the smarts of his lab rats. You've seen a thousand cartoons on this with every variation. Sooner or later some have humans in the rat race. But this is no science question. The scientist based his maze - it was an exact copy - on a formal garden, that was indeed for humans. Name the garden.



IS,… Continue

Set of Self Portraits

Dear Musea Readers,



Self Portraits

Decades of drawing and painting have given me the ability to draw and paint out of thin air – that is I can make it up and it looks fairly real. OK so far. But I notice that when I do a male figure, it seems to always turn into someone that looks a lot like me. Here is a set of self portraits.…

Box of Art (Why Mass Market Paintings - pt 2)

Box of Art (Why Mass Market Paintings, Part 2)

Part of Postmod Art, or the revolution in painting, is the mass production of paintings or gliclees” on canvas. They can be made so exact that you could line up 4 copies and the original on the wall – all of them in the same frame – and no one could tell which is the original.



Let painting join the other mass marketed arts: lit/books, film/dvd, music/records. Then it too will become as popular as books, films and… Continue

Full of ideas (and actually WORKING on some of them!)

I am full of ideas for zines right now. I'm writing them all down to make sure I won't lose any of them.

And I am working on my first ever zine. It will be about my weekly four to five hour train rides. I'm almost done with the text but I'll need to take some photos this weekend.

I've never been so close to actually completing a zine. Pretty exciting :)

Junk Drawer Workshop

Junk Drawer held the first ever Junk Drawer Workshop.  It took place at CHIPRC, the Chicago Publishers Resource Center.

I talked a little about the history of the Junk Drawer zine.

Then we passed around a junk drawer stocked full of pre-selected odds & ends, and everybody found something of interest and wrote about it.  People brought in their own junk drawer objects too, so there was a bit of…
