I messed up the outside of this with carvings, but I liked how the face turned out in the bottom of this cylinder.
I will now let the Simpsons lull me to sleep as I pass out on the couch.
Goodnight.
SONG: Total Control - “One More Tonight”

I haven’t felt like drawing. 

I started the new handbuilding session tonight with my teacher practically begging me to “step out of my comfort zone” and make a saucer or plate.

I only want to make small figurines. What is so bad about having a comfort zone? Maybe I want a comfort zone. Maybe I don’t want to have a dumb dish lying around my house when I could have a plump night sky rabbit wishing me all the comfort it can afford.

SONG: The Spook School - “I’ll Be Honest” Click HERE for song.

(Inspired by QFEguy. PLEASE: Watch this video!
( freckledspace​​ and my goal is to give him 1000 views! Help!)

This is great. It is. Just 700 more views to go. 


Well, I feel sort of like shit now.
Remember this hula hoop guy? I had thought I would boost him (with zeichenwege’s help), and maybe let him know there were people watching. I had gotten curious to see what the number count was today. (It had gotten up to 500 views last time.) I checked his channel only to see that he had deleted nearly all of his videos.
I don’t know if he was forced due to using copyrighted songs or if he was ticked that people were watching.

Sorry, Hula Hoop Guy.

I had Tan My yesterday, and I crave it again.
Someone, please, trot over and get me #40. My stomach will thank you as my hands claw it out of your hands.

Tonight was the last night of classes for this handbuilding session. I’m returning to the next session, but really tried to hustle in order to make up for my horrible attempt to DO IT this session. The guy will fire, and I added a Jungle Gem glaze for his hair that hopefully will burn beautifully and not bleed down his face.

As we were cleaning up, our studio owner who lives next door and who had left for the night, re-entered the studio to tell us about Robin Williams’ death. It just had that heavy feeling of knowing that someone couldn’t take it anymore, and decided to leave the world. 

I’ll owe many things to Robin Williams’ performances, and I always will watch Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society when they’re on. I do remember the eerie blowjob scene in The World According the Garp, but I’ll just leave that be.

Bye bye, Robin. Sorry you were sad.

I watched Guardians of the Galaxy last night (go see it!), and after I saw Yondu’s arrow zip around killing like a deranged border collie to his whistle commands, it made me miss archery. I feel bad for my sad bow that is underneath my bed, and I’m now wondering if I can just shoot it in my backyard without having to wonder if someone will call the police.
I’m also really tired. YET, I would like to let you know that on my way back from San Antonio I finally stopped at Buc-ee’s with Goldie. I am a huge junk food nut, so this was like an instant homerun. I am currently filled with jerky and a cherry limeade icy. Happily pushing POST now…

Every day while I’m at work, I listen to The JV Club. I feel my mouth sort of fall open in a fascinated way as I did as a kid watching cartoons. Now I do it as I hear Janet Varney’s spitfire high energy embrace of each of her guests as she asks all questions pertaining to the worst times that makes or breaks us - our teen years. 
She normally only interviews women, but during the summer she has been interviewing all men. At the end of each interview, she asks the male guest to sing or hum or mangle the song “Boys of Summer” by Don Henley, and it always makes me laugh. Paul F. Tompkins and Howard Kremer both belted their song out of the park.
It also made me realize what a great song it was, and how I always have mumbled the lyrics…until I got to the part, "AND I CAN SEE YOU. YOUR BROWN SKIN SHINING IN THE SUN..YOU GOT YOUR HAIR COMBED BACK…SUNGLASSES ON, BAYBEE…I CAN TELL YOU MY LOVE FOR YOU WILL STILL BE STRONG…AFTER THE BOYS OF SUMMER HAVE GONE" (then it fades)
Enjoy.

I lied. 
I skipped out on nearly all my pottery sessions due to my dumb car accident, stomach bug, creepy goon thug, and my capacity to feel bad for myself rather than bucking up and doing a job.
These were semi-finished.
I signed up for another session, so I will crank out at least one more piece. I feel so bad because everyone else is really producing things, but I’m slow and distracted.
p.s. I want to punch nearly everyone featured in this song clip because they look so miserable at a show, especially that blonde girl at the front. Ugh. Stay home. At least Blue Shorts is moving his leg…doing SOMETHING.
SONG: School Girl Report - “Rebecca Bingley”

"I’m sure it’s not any wish of mine that I’m born with inclinations for better things. If I could be born again, and had the designing of myself, I’d be born the lowest and coarsest-minded person imaginable, so that I could find plenty of companionship, or I’d be born an idiot, which would be better still."
— Miles Franklin

SONG: The Fall Outs - “Another Fad”
