My First Art Show!

I put up a few pieces of my art last weekend, at a public place! *gasp!*

It is my first art showing. I don't even know if that's the right term for it -- it's not really an exhibit, it's not really an event, well it's kind of an event, but it's not really major...? Anyway, I felt that the term "showing" is appropriate because I am... showing you my art!

My art is being shown at Jewel Box Cafe in Northgate. More specifically, inside Thornton Place right across from the movie theater. You can definitely go there after a movie, look at my art, and get you and your date so aroused that you may reach first base. Maybe even second if you nastayyyyy...

I went in last Saturday night at 12 midnight to put it up while they were closing. The people working there are very nice and friendly and didn't question a random Asian dude defacing and vandalizing their walls. It probably also helped that I'm friends with them.

I was nervous at first, but I think my art is enjoyable. It is themed "Seattle and It's Surroundings". Basically me drawing things around or pertaining to Seattle.

The art is up now, you can go check it out. Let me know if it stirs any emotions within you (or bowels). If you're lucky, you'll find me there also -- creeping on people and making sure the art is on the wall straight.

Workout Progress 11/20/2012

Been working out for a while. Always been chubby but athletic my whole life -- made the decision to uncover what's under there AKA acquire aesthetics. I have been tracking progress (albeit sporadically) on another blog of mine that I never really publicized.

I'm not where I want to be yet. In this picture, I'm probably around 185 lbs -- serious, my legs are huge. I'm thinking if I hit around 170 or 165 I'll be in there. The thing is, cardio is insanely boring to me -- it's not hard at all but it just takes time. I've been at a plateau for a while so I'm thinking I need to bite the bullet and do it. I have to accept that I'm an endomorph and pack on weight very easily.

I also changed my lifting program up yesterday so we'll see if that shakes things up.

If you haven't heard from me, seen me out of the house, this is why. This lifting thing, my personal art projects (I have an art showing coming up soon), reading, my family, my girlfriend and doggie (son) and throw in some video games -- this is what I've been spending my time on.

I'm still an extrovert and still look forward to hanging out with you all in real life, it's just that once I get into something I completely immerse myself in it.

I'm weird like that I guess. Gonna go lift now.

If you have any questions about anything, you can e-mail me at arthur.robot@gmail.com or Twitter me at @ayeforarthur

Writing = Alpha?

I read on an internet forum that I frequent that writing everyday can make you more alpha. I'm skeptical (not sure if serious). Fortunately, I already have an established blog that I've been maintaining (albeit sporadically) for 4+ years.

I read that writing in a journal everyday helps you recognize your thought process, learn your own values, and figure out who you truly are. Basically, you're figuring out if your a beta or not.

For that purpose, I'm going to update. I'm just going to spew out words from my consciousness -- I'm not going to delete anything except for glaring typos because I probably have ADD and I hate when that red squiggly line appears under words. It's like a little red worm disease and I'm the only doctor that can cure it.

This entry will be disease free.

I worked today. I work every weekday. Work was fine except I have done everything I can do for all my assignments and projects assigned to me so I'm pretty much waiting for people to respond and give me more information.

That's was a very riveting story -- I shall preserve that memoir and unravel that tale to my grandchildren when the time is right.

I lifted weights today with my friend Emil. We got yucky on dem legs -- squats, lunges, leg extension, deadlift, etc. It was a good workout but more importantly, I got to catch up with a good friend.

I've been secluded from almost everybody I know except for my girlfriend and my dog Nimo. Reason might be because I live with them.

 If we didn't live together, I don't know who I would see. I can't put my finger on how or why I have been secluded lately -- I don't mind. I lied, sometimes I mind.

I would say that I'm an extrovert so sustaining substantial seclusion time feels odd at times. When I actually go out and it's like all that pent up energy gets released and I get on that yucky time. I guess it's healthy to experience both spectrum extremes.

Nimo ate out of the recycling AND the trash today. What a bad (kewl) dog. I get mad at him but he is so cute that I can't get mad at him. I end up just feeling worried and hope that he didn't eat anything harmful to doggies. I know for sure that chocolate and like onion oil (I don't know) are bad for dogs. I don't think any of that was in there. I'm more worried about the discarded coffee grounds. I noticed he drank an abnormal amount of water since I got home -- probably to wash down all that almond butter he licked up.

OK I should stop before I get too worried and calculating because I'm sure he's going to be fine.

I think this entry is long enough -- am I alpha yet?

I actually don't care. Maybe I do. But I feel that I owed it to myself and my blog to write something today.

I Don't Like Scary Movies

Why do people like scary movies?

I don't like scary movies. I don't like feeling afraid. I don't like stuff popping out from corners. I don't like when movies take you into a house and go around corners really slowly. I don't like house appliances turning on by themselves at max volume. I don't like when the protagonist looks through holes or windows. I don't like masks. I don't like potato sack masks. I don't like people that run at you. I don't like seeing muddy footprints go into the house when you are on the 2nd story and home alone. I don't like it when the protagonists look through binoculars at other houses. I don't like alley ways. I don't like shadows. I don't like bathrooms. I don't like bathtubs. I don't like lights turning on and off. I don't like floating blankets. I don't like doors slammed closed. I don't like when the camera is super close to the protagonists face. I don't like baby rooms. I don't like rocking chairs. I don't like when the protagonist doesn't super beat them up when they are lying there. I don't like when the bad guy is 'fake dead'. I don't like basements. I don't like exploring the bad guy's "base".

Man, I don't like scary movies.

Fun Day Today

I hung out with two friends that I have not seen in a long time -- probably years.

Yeah, I think years.

We ate dinner at this place called Mr. and Mrs. Wok. They have great Italian food there -- very unique taste. The spaghetti there was called "yakisoba" and the meat balls were flat and came on a sizzling plate and was called "bulgogi". I recommend.

Plus the old lady came and laughed at my pervert jokes. Liked it so much she gave all of us extra candy at the end of our meal. Dum-dums to be exact. She is mirin' my aesthetics (read: admiring my aesthetics). She is also 50+ years old.

After that we got coffee and drinks and chocolate stuff at Chocolati. There we discussed the decline of America On-Line and speculated what was root cause of its demise. We also shared our past AOL screen names -- Jennyl was 'Oh Ship a Scooter' (notsureifsrs, read: not sure if serious), Nga was 'hoochiegirl86' or something along those lines (probs srs), mine was AJ Bingo 316 (I had an infatuation with wrestling at the time which may or may not involve Stone Cold Steve Austin).

I also divulged to them how I got my family banned from America On-Line within a month of subscribing. I was nine years old and it involves Magic: The Gathering. I promise I will write about it in a future blog post. Nga also divulged that her dates like to take her to cemetery's because "it's fun". I think that might be code name for boning (???) because cemetery's have dead people and dead people turn to skeletons and skeletons have bones. Two hundred and six bones, to be exact.

That's a lot of boning.

Nga got a new car called a Leaf and apparently it runs on only electrons. Naturally everybody drove it around the same block to see how it felt. Not me because I am asian and I don't drive very well and I also drive a mini-van.

OK, I'm done.

How Spiders Walk

As explained by FUCKING_BUG_EXPERT...

That's a great fucking question, but not really.
Anyway, when spiders die, they typically curl their legs under them. Spiders don't possess muscles like that of insects and other animals, but instead what some would describe as some weird ass hydraulic system; fluid is forced to extremities, sort of like having eight penises for legs and getting boners instantaneously to walk around. So when a spider dies, its limbs essentially lose pressure and all sort of wind back up. Spiders suffering from dehydration will have trouble moving for this reason and sit in a similar fashion.
What is in the picture is either A) a plastic toy, or B) a spider that fucking drowned because it somehow lost its ability to scale porous surfaces, and its carcass sat their overnight to absorb the liquid.

Today I learned that spiders have 8 penises and get boners and stuff to walk on them. Am I learning right? Please advise.

One Thing My Dog Has Taught Me

This is my dog.

His name is Nimo.

Nimo has taught me many things and continues to teach me new things everyday -- how to pick up poop, how to wipe pee, how to feed a dog, how to give water to a dog, how to walk a dog, how to pet a dog, how to play with a dog, how to dog a dog (wait wut?), how to try to get a dog to attack ducks at the nearby lake but not because the dog would rather sniff trees and pinecones.

Boogers - What are they?

What are boogers?

I could just Wikipedia 'boogers' but I think it would be more fun to just speculate and be curious about them. I also think that today's generation is lowkey spoiled that they have so much technology at their fingertips -- so much that the 'curiosity spark', the catalyst that starts the creativity parts of our brain, is waning. Imagination is stifled!

Chipped Tooth

I have mixed feelings right now -- I am reluctant to write this blog but I feel so obligated due to the recent turn of events. Check it out.

First Official Race - March Forth Fun Run 10K

Ran my first ever 'official' race this morning: March Forth Fun Run down at Greenlake. I signed up for the 10K which is like uhhhh 6+ something miles I could Google the exact mileage but I am lazy womp womp.

I haven't ran more than a mile in a couple months.

Sketch of Louie/Louis

A friend asked me to do a painting of her dog. Usually I don't like doing things for friends -- not because I'm a douche but because I'm afraid that I won't produce something to their expectations. I have decided to look past that and just do as much as I can, no regards if they like it or not (lol maybe thats douchy sounding). I feel that it would give me good practice and at the same time hopefully getting some happy friends.

Keep Moving Forward

I feel I have been making good progress with my personal goals so far -- every day I'm inching closer, just trying to keep pushing forward. I personally feel that I have a strong work ethic and am able to align myself constantly with my goals. But, I still don't think I'm doing enough.

Support Your Local Library!

The published book is slowing deteriorating with the advent of e-readers, e-ink, e-pages, e-covers, e-porn. Libraries are dying, b. Don't let this happen! There is just something about having a real Playboy in your hand, turning musty (maybe crusty) paper pages... You can't replace that.

Seriously though, support your local library! There are many ways to support, here's how I personally did it.

The Handshake Debacle

I want to shed light on perhaps one of the more awkward things that happens amongst young males -- the casual handshake. You won't find many male/female interactions of this nature -- usually those interactions involve hugs (#inthere), kisses on the lips (#mybodyisready), feeling of breasts (#igab), etc.

But I digress, allow me to disect this handshake debacle.

Lost in Tokyo by Mark Bramley

This video takes you on a eclectic 3 minute tour of Japan (wild guess is that its Tokyo) filled with bright lights and acute and obtuse camera angles.

2012 Resolutions

Five super exciting resolutions for me! (not srs) At least I think I'll be able to keep them... maybe.
