Spotty Dog

We can dance into eternity, dance into eternity.

Trying to record some guitar playing but the usb ports don't work on this computer and the ancient laptop doesn't want to play. Booger. I posted once on youtube but that must have been when I could plug in the ..oh no...wait. I did it on the camera!

Anyway, I might move to a different webpage on blogger and if I do it will be called "Spotty Dog". The newer blogs have more bells and whistles and I can never have too many of those.

Tight Spot

Thunder, lightning, torrential rain, lights out, shivering, small dog. Mind you it's snowing everywhere else. Not's Vongole night!
This frog has been following me for a week.

Have a glass of Yellowtail (shiraz) while you listen to this.

Red Dancing Shoes

I got red shoes,
red shoes.
To dance, to dance,
the blues away.

Do you want to dance with me?
Choose your shoes,
sure and free.

What am I doing dancing at eleven thirty in the morning? It's raining. It's freezing. I haven't even seen a human for a while...

The above done in Corel Painter Essentials 2. What I really want is Creative Suite 4.0 but it costs like a sqiddley million pounds. It's still raining.

Here's a link to the past..which I stumbled across...that's what happens when you go to art college in Edinburgh.

Red shoes but belonging to somebody else.

Oh, oh , red shoes on my mind now. What kind? What kind?

Still stuck with Photoshop 6.0 which is great, don't get me wrong, but it's not even compatible with brush downloads from Deviant art.

By the way, anyone out there know how to send large music files without having to fill in endless forms, or subscribe or become a member of something?

Guess who didn't know there was a reflection tool in the text maker in Photoshop? I promise to be smarter this year.

I was served raw prawns the other night. Mental note to wear my reading glasses when not dining at home (which is not often).
"Oh," says the hostess, "I thought you just defrosted them and served them with a wedge of lime?"
"Er, you cook them first though," I say.
"You do? We always serve them like this."

Having done a little research on the web I discover that I have narrowly avoided death yet again (toxic poisoning)...the closest possibly being landing upside down in a hot air balloon on a Belgian motorway ...or the time an arabian sheik offered my brother a pile of cash in exchange...for me. That was quite scary, actually.

I have to thank "Timbobig" for completely unknowingly giving me this idea after reading his blog. That's the beauty of the web for me...such unexpected things happen.

Party Season

Artrage 2.5. You can use the glitter tool to make fancy dresses or stencils to put the waves in Maureen's hair and Bryony's frock. Melanie wears a dazzling number bought from the local charity shop. Smart lady. All three are looking for suitors.

Red Shoes

Ultrafractal 4.0 and Photoshop 6.0. I've done the do the music.
Here's a link to Mr Jaroussky having fun.

There's a television advert that was on over Christmas that I cannot get out of my head and it's driving me nuts. A room full of shiny clothing and these huge women going "D'ja wanta bargee doo ya, doo ya, sixty fer a fivaaah, doo ya doo ya, wanna bargee?"
