... I do need to be more productive I think, but it's so hard to find the time, being always busy with work and the social live after that.
But if I want to turn the 30.000 page views into 50.000 I will have to do some creating here :D It's not that I don't do anything, it's just
that for starters my Nikon D80 is broken :( . And the drawing doodles I do make (on an iPad!) I don't upload for some reason. Maybe I should...

Not too long ago I made a portrait of Damon Albarn and I managed to let the man himself sign it - he even doodled a little figure on there
as well. A joined artwork? I could upload that ... I'm also working on a joined artwork with Roelles ... not sure how that will turn out, if I like
it I could upload that. I could, I could, I could... or not ...

I did manage to upload a new Deviant ID and the album art Photoshop experiment. So yay for that.

Meanwhile I'm reading a very interesting book called "the great animal orchestra" - by Bernie Krause. It's about sound, and natural soundscapes
en the influence they got on us, on our rhythms, tonality and such, how we with our noise change natural soundscapes in a big way and how
nature may sound like a lot of noise to us, but different species use different frequencies for their vocalisations in order to be heard by their  
relatives. It all fits together nicely ... the question is, how can you stand out (operate within a frequency that isn't used yet) in a big group as DA,
with the constant bombardments of visual input (noise)? Would you stick out in this absurdly busy corner of the internet? Or... should one take
the other approach and upload a crazy amount of imagery (in other words, be like the fighter jet flying over the jungle, creating more noise than the
jungle below, effectively muting all other sounds ... only to be quickly forgotten)? Who knows... Maybe I shouldn't be comparing sound to vision/images,
or maybe I should. There could be something there, something interesting perhaps, something worth writing about.

I could, I could, I could...
