a goodwill just opened by my house wooot

when i saw this record i nearly pooped my pants i was so stoked, check out that fucking cover art

i got it specifically for this song, i love it
(only dailymotion had an actual clip, power through the ad its worth it)

also an original ink spots album, hell yeah

got it for this song, from fallout 3 <3

awe and my mum used to read this to me when i was a kid. it seemed much bigger then.

Moscow's stray dogs getting more intelligent; learn to use subway.

I love this.

ive always been amazed by wild dogs. theres something so beautiful about something so inherently feral, so straight from the dirt of the earth, and the night and moon, and yet something still that has such an intimate understanding of the worlds and societies around them. humans domesticated wild dogs a long time ago, and in return theyve domesticated us, thickening our common languages and giving us unconditional companionship, even love.

There are 30,000-35,000 stray dogs in Moscow right now; thats approximately 84 stray dogs per square mile.

they are brilliant survivors.

science time.

over the last 30 years, the generations of strays have been moving in a less and less domesticated direction, their learned tail-wagging has disappeared, their ears repoint and their coats lose their spots, which is a direct effect of adrenaline levels rising, which affects aggression.

the strays are currently grouped in one of four categories in the hierarchy of de-domestication;
gaurd dogs, beggars, scavengers and wild dogs.

the metro dog is a subcategory of beggar and there are only about 20 or so known to researchers. they know when certain people ride, listen for stops on the loudspeakers, have finely tuned internal clocks and greet specific types of passersby, all the while avoiding the fuzz.

heres a bunch of links if you want to read more about these wonderful dogs <3

i bought this AFTER i read the entire thing, that should say something. This fella Raphael Grampa's linework and angles are mindnumbing, and the details are Geof Darrow status. Its really beautifully done, i gotta dig for some of this guys other work, because its amazing.

so then

folking hell its been a rough week of change of nonstop bombardment, ive been neglecting the joint.

we only have so many hours of clear or even hazy consciousness, and starting on the 22nd or so of august, a huge percentage of mine have been spent at school. yep, i started going to school, something i never thought id do again, ever.

But in the true spirit of transhumanism, ive decided to jump headfirst into the stream of massive transition, linking olde burned off synapses and truly opening up all available ports for the first time in a while. Its very stressful, and ive been grumpy.

yep, im a scribe, currently split between illustration and engineering as a major. it all comes full circle, so bear with me.

Books are a racket, so much so that for the same cost i decided to get this instead:

its a toshiba thrive tablet, solid stable android OS, the stock browser eats ass but so did my fones, i havent really had a chance to fuck about with it and try out new ones though, so im not too worried. works great for ebooks, so everything else as far as im concerned is an extra. so i proceeded to download my textbooks. some i even had to buy, scan and return. fair play i say, information should cost time, not money.

toshibas releasing the kernel source in a couple weeks, so itll be worth rooting it then, to overclock it and remove the stock bloatware. really clean though, and great for working on tribe too, i like it.

im taking a drawing course and a drafting course, as well as math and a film throwaway class(i needed an extra unit to get to full time to qualify for financial aid, which is 12, so im currently taking 14 units, and yes, its busy as fuck)

i honestly havent drawn in almost a month, been busy writing bits for tribe and doing other shit so im rusty as fuuuuck. heres a first day self portrait i had to do, yep im terrible with a pencil AND with realism, which warrants me going to class, yes? anyway my beard is awesome, so eat it.

so enough about school, who wants to hear about that shit anyway?

what spare time ive had has been spent almost exclusively on something ive been waiting literally years to come to fruition.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
robotica at its finest.

the first segment has a trio of unknowns attack sarif industries, the forerunners of the augmented limb industry. adam jensen, an ex-cop turned private security for sarif, is hurled through a bulletproof window and beaten mercilessly by one of the trio. the opening credits feature jensens intense surgical augmentation, replacing his sternum, arms and more with augmented cybernetic limbs.

he barely survived.

the thing about deus ex is that yes, currently, it is sci-fi, but the truth is that we will have to deal with these issues in our lifetimes.

its already in motion. stay tuned for a tech dump in the next week or so. ill show you this new world.

also heres a model of jensens arm from a trade show :drooooooooooooool:

anyways, i felt obligated to explain my sudden absence. it might be sparse for a couple more weeks while i get accustomed to being this fucking busy, but i WILL make time for bonesandrobots, i promise.

this is for rebekah, bump it gerl!
