Hey all, So real fast, I have gotten into designing t shirts. My first batch will be dedicated to fellow paratroopers. I have a couple of them in mind. I just got Serif graphic design software and Gimp2 photo software. I am am just trying to learn them. This week I will role them out to be purchased on TeeSpring.com There will actually be a line of t shirts geared toward paratrooper and the military. I know the first one I am rolling out will be a big seller because I tested it out with the guys I served with in the 82nd Airborne Division. I do paratrooper apparel.
So I need to start writing. Why? Because at my core I am a writer. I know I do not put any effort into it, but none the less, I am a writer. Then after that follows being a filmmaker, painter, all around artist. I look inside mind and there are so many things to write about. That is why I have 3 blogs. So I am making the commitment to write and to write a lot, as well as read a lot. We should all be avid readers. Don’t you agree.
So what here is what is up with me. I am doing research for my film on sex trafficking and combat veteran issues. Why so much research? Because, I want to be an expert on these subjects so that I may speak with authority. I also want to start advocating on these 2 subjects. I am going to be contacting Tampa Police Department to see what they are doing in regards of fighting sex trafficking in Tampa. Which by the way, is a major hub for child sex trafficking. I am just finishing up Holly Austin Smith’s book Walking Prey. I strongly recommend you read it. Especially if you deal with children.
And now something funny from the Boondocks.
Just saw this picture in a Bomb Magazine article of Melvin Van Pebbles. And saw this great coat he was sporting.
I want one.
Hey in case you didn’t know I have two other blogs: the first is My Journey into Film, which is a my film and art blog and then Notes from Outpost 187 which is a social and political blog. I hope you will enjoy them both.
So here in the Tampa Bay area we have the Dali museum in St Petersburg, and right now they are having an exhibition of Pablo Picasso works. It is really good, however I wish they had more of Picasso’s, but none the less it was good. Picasso and Dali were great friends who competed with each other over the course of their careers, so it is really nice to see the progression in each others work. If you are in the bay area or want to take a get away here I strongly suggest you go and check it out.
I am really looking forward to seeing the movie Advanced Style, a documentary about older women who dress fabulously. Just becuase you get old doesn’t mean you have to look or feel it. This documentary come out of the blog Advanced Style, and is directed by Lina Plioplyte
Men you should also take a page dress great when you get older. The older the classier.
Here is a video tip on how to put on cologne from the blog “He Spoke Style”
