Recording Songs

One of the things that can lead to self-attack for me is unfinished ideas. Everyone has at least one. For me it’s recording songs that come into my head. Making them “listenable” tracks for sharing. So the plan is to create a YouTube monetized channel once my first track is finished to share these ideas. What will I call it? Who knows? Maybe “Liquid Electric” which I’ve liked for ages.

Liquid Electric 1



For metal projects I’ve got these ones:

War Beast and DeSoulUtion





And of course as an over arching, progressive, kind of brand:

Archmage Demiurge









It’s all just ideas and that is what blogging is about.

Uni Ball Insight 0.7mm Orange

A great rollerball with very nice smooth writing flow. Ink is legible on white, no mean feat for an orange inked pen, and it leaves a lovely line width. It contrasts well against a good black ink like the Smoothie 1.0mm from Bic. It is light without losing control and has an accurate feel. Like many pens it is better balanced with the cap posted and I found it much more preferable to write like this, yet without the posted cap it was still usable just a little more twitchy. I prefer heavier pens, though, so caveat emptor on that description.

The paper in the sample is a cheap diary from Aldi, cost $2, yet no bleed through. You can make out some lateral feathering from the paper grain in the high-res photo (click on it below) however I did not notice it before viewing the digital image.
Cons: cap leaves a gap between pen body and edge. No contours on the grip part of the barrel.
9/10 – overall a good budget pen.
$2.67 from Officeworks.

Sketching Progress (2 June 2010)

I’ve been sketching whilst on leave and have been quite happy with the results. After doing a very short “blind” drawing exercise it seemed to “unlock” some drawing talent or other and since I’ve been drawing at this level.

I did the one below on my first Sketchcrawl by Big Dummy. It was only a short crawl, or is that ride – sketchride, and I was so happy I took a photo to send to my wife.
