The colour is autumn.

I work in a traditional sweet shop for one day a week. I asked that we do a halloween display for the window, since we're a sweet shop and i found it weird there was no halloween decorations. My boss got some lame cheap-o shit and asked that I put them up. So I did, and then I drew my own decorations. This started off a new style of drawing for me. Now I can't stop drawing like this.

The sun is shining and the colour is autumn. So perhaps I will go outdoors, maybe cycle to the lakeshore and smell the fish? It might rain, like it did earlier: hard, wet, cold. Does this bother me? Not really.

Eight to a Mile.

I came across this band recently. I can't get over this music at the moment. Not just The Pirate Ship Quintet, but also Mono & World's End Girlfriend, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Blueneck etc.

I have written a few new short stories. I'm not sure where to send them.

Here is the Tree of Heaven.

Burn my Shadow by UNKLE

Extract from 1st oct

Today I walked for three hours, identified the following (new to me) trees: Tillia heterophylla (White Basswood), Tillia Oliveri (Oliver’s Lime), Fagus Sylvatica ‘Purpurea Tricolour’ (Gay of the woods/ Common Beech with variegated foliage), Acer Pseudoplatanus ‘Purpureum’ (Purple leaved Sycamore), plus an Aspenfolia variant of Fagus Sylvatica.

Also I checked on my Noise profile and saw that I got a bunch of medal things (I have no idea what they mean) plus a Curators Choice award. I’m not really sure what that is; but it might be good.

Rosetta Stoned by Tool

Just so you know: Here I will post extracts from my real journal until I grow bored and/or forget I have a blog.

(Extract from Entry: 30 Sept)

Too tired. I love this song:

Rosetta Stoned - Tool [IEM Recordings]

Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
Such a heavy burden now to be the One
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again ...

Strapped down [to] my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Sunkist * and Sudafed
Gyroscopes and infrared
Won't help, I'm brain dead
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said to make me out to be the hero
Can't remember what they said
Bob help me!
Can't remember what they said

[We] don't know, [and we] won't know (x12)

God damn, shit the bed!

Went to Win Green on Saturday:

And to Tim's woods on Sunday:

Dani and I felled a tree each, but alas, there is no photographic evidence. I was too busy chopping a tree down (or two) with an axe :D
