Project 313 – Post No. 183

Another quick post . . . and another link to a fun fiction foray into the then Zombie craze.

You know, I’m seriously contemplating dipping my toe into outright opinion pieces. They are not fun to write and the number of people who will even read them — let alone be swayed by them — will be low.

But, I’m hearing such poor presentation of ideas out there that I feel I need to do what I can to spread the few ideas worth sharing. We’ll see if I find the time for it, but if I do, it won’t be in these posts (like I’ve been doing). They will be dedicated pieces; serious pieces because these are serious times. 

And now, the photo:

I like this treatment and I like this gas cap (yes, that’s what it is) although I was never partial to the car. It never quite met my esthetic requirements for lines and curves and the interaction of the two. 

I understand the model has quite the following, as do most of the classic cars. Interesting that, isn’t it? We live in a time when even the most beautifully styled automobiles lack . . . character. 

As for the cartoon . . . 

. . . I actually used to draw on newspapers. I stopped when I was told that was disrespectful. 

Of course, that was at a time when we had a bit more trust in what we read and heard from media sources. Mind you, they were never unbiased, but now they’re blatantly not so much informing you so that you can draw your own conclusions and more into telling you what you should think.  

I mean, I’m not surprised . . . all of our institutions are letting us down. Powerful people are letting us down. Politicians are letting us down. 

. . . but, are they? I think we’re letting ourselves down by listening to weak arguments thinly coated by obvious distortion aimed at making it easy to swallow just about anything that’s presented. Sad. 

This next Doodle is just . . . Too Orderly for a Proper Name.

Too Orderly for a Proper Name

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

    I used to draw on newspapers. Putting a moustache on some socialite who thought she was above the plebs was the first step in social awareness. But I can’t imagine you being swayed by the ‘disrespectful’ tag.


  2. Thanks for the link! I do love a good zombie story and that is a great zombie story! Ha!
    PHOTO: Cool gas cap and you made it look even cooler!
    CARTOON: But, Willy IS on the job! :-D I remember in college, and then in grad, classes being bored, so I’d doodle in my notebooks. I wish I had had a newspaper or a magazine to put mustaches, etc., on people. Ha!
    DOODLE: Oh, my! It IS quite orderly! And purdy!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      Thank you, Carolyn. That was a fun piece to write. Not sure I have that kind of creative juice left in me but perhaps one of these days I’ll return to writing humor.

      Both Melisa and I doodle when on aa phone call, although what we produce is different (as it should be). I used to heavily annotate my engineering books but I never doodled on books.

      You know, you could get a drawing program and write on saved screen captures of your favorite people’s photos.
