V.C. Andrews and Arthur C. Clarke and Clank have tickled me in such a manner that I have neglected my electronic journal. To All of my readers I apologize and hope to assure you that I will get back to my earlier serious electronic journalistic schedule.
Thank you in advance.

I want to hurt you just to hear you calling my name...
Alice Cooper, Poison, 1989.
The opening guitar loop is lyrical and mezmerizing. Alice's vocals at the beginning invite you into a world of confusion and heartache. I would consider this one of the great stalker songs of all time, comparable withQueensryche's Gonna Get Close To You and Sarah McLachlan's Possession.
The frame of section A has been completed... The bolts are still relatively loose, to allow for final leveling and detailing... Next the frames for section C and B must be completed, then the decorative shade-enhancing girders will be placed.
I have been rather disappointed that Bob Larson has chosen not to include a SPIRITUAL FREEDOM CONFERENCE REPORT from his Portland Oregon appearance at the Emabassy Suites Hotel. I had, quite honestly, hoped to insinuate myself into his fold by my presence at the exorcism. Perhaps I will have to stay tuned and wait for his next appearance...

I believe that the comic was called Icarus-Flagship of the Interstellar Rescue Foundation. And yes, the style of the artist, Dave Cooper, had influenced me a great deal. I had copped his 'circle-matrix' style in a great many drawings during that era. Looking back at these covers I wish I had not left most of my comic books in my parent's basement. I may have to go to my local comic book retailer and see if I can find copies of these.
The funny thing is that in researching this post I just realized that I had become a fan of Cooper's more recent work, having copies of both Overbite and Ripple, without realizing that it was the same artist who h…
I've been feeling rather melancholy as of late; As part of some sort of attempt to cope with this feeling I have gone through my original works with the intent of 'cleansing and completing' them. I do this every year or so, taking the raw images and reworking and polishing them until an official version comes to fruition. The images are then moved from the 'draft' archive to the 'completed' archive, where they become an 'official plate' rather than a 'master sketch'. I hope you enjoy this image, 'A Vision Of Heartache Through Teenage Eyes', master sketch c.1988, official plate 2006.
I began work on my album of spoken verse today, re-exploring poetry written at a younger age, words that reflect a lost feeling, a lost life... Moods of Golden Love Talk
