My Cat Mistletoe

Hello there fellow UG'ers. I got a request from my only subscriberand I thought I would post some more of my pictures. Ok, now a little background info, then on to my pictures. Mistletoe is a munchkin cat. No, I'm not making fun of her, that's her breed. Her legs are shorter than normal. To help explain it, her legs pretty much stop at the knees. You'll see this in one of the pictures-hopefully- Well, she's a bit skittish, but she's finally warming up to me, and I got her to do a nice photo shoot with me. I would get pictures of my other cat, but she's got a cold, and that would be some weird pictures. Also, if I can find the pictures, there should be some pics of my mice at the bottom. These are Egyptian Spiny Mice. I started off with for, but I only have two now. They are very cute though, I have to say, they bite unfortunately. They're still cool though. Haha I got some nice cute pics of them I have a guinea pig too, but I don't have any pics of him. He's pretty big, he's a chubby pig. He likes carrots which is cool Well, I guess I should stop writing a post some pics, eh? Oh, also, cheers to my only subscriber


 




Also, please leave a comment I take my time out to do all this, the least you could do is leave me a comment, so go on, why are you still reading, leave a comment................Now, do it, stop reading, scroll down and type me a comment
And then, if you want to see a funny video taken by me, click the link below. I took this video on that same cruise as the iguana pic. This bird danced for me, and then demonstrated some awesome yoga skills at the end. http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=bj63pz&s=5

My New Guitar :D

Current mood: cheerful

Well, I got a new guitar yesterday, and I'm in love with it:D It is beatiful. It is the ESP EC-1000 LTD Deluxe. I looked at many other guitars, but finnaly came out to this one. I actually saved up the money for this guitar all by myself At first it was quite an experience, but I'll explain that later. I'll write out the entire play by play at the bottom. I got it for cheaper than it should have been, but once more, that will be explained. So without further ado, here is the story:


Ok, I finally saved up enough money for a good professional guitar, so I went to guitar center. I waited for about half an hour for someone to help me. I guess they didn't expect me to be spending a lot. So i get some help, and the guy types in what I'm looking for, and I'm really ticked off and impatient at this point, because i had to wait so long, and he tells me they don't have it, and to tell him if I need anything else. He is still looking straight at me, and I say yeah, can you bring this one down, and I point to it. He just turns and starts helping some other person. So I'm really mad, so I say that I'll go over to Sam Ash where I can get some decent help Then, I go to Sam Ash, and my mood is lightened as I get a great guy to help me. He grabbed me the guitar, and hooks me up with an amp. He then finds some other guitars, and I end up trying out about 10 guitars. Then I decide that I would come back tomorrow, because I wanted to see if I could price match to get the price lower. Well, I left, and thanked him. Then I went home, checked out the reviews, and found a better price. I brought it back and they beat the price. I got the guitar a whole lot cheaper than it should have been. And now I'm extremely happy:D Also if you would like to see it, it may be my profile pic, but the pic is uploaded now. If you want to hear it, just listen to my mp3:D It sounds amazing. I am very happy with this guitar

Photography

Current mood: artistic

I love photography. I love it so much, i feel it should be shared with the great UG'ers. So I'll post a couple of pictures with some good memories, and I describe briefly what happened, and why this picture means a lot to me I'll countdown to my number one favorite picture of mine, that brings back good memories. Also, most of these pictures are taken by me with my Sony Cybershot W-120. If they are not taken with this camera they have been drawn be me using either photoshop cs2 or illustrator cs2. If you have any questions about either photoshop or photography, go ahead and ask me either through private messaging, or just post it as a comment right here.







4. The Iguana
I chose this picture for my #5 pic, because it is beautiful. I love this picture because how calm the animal was, and how it didn't mind me putting my camera two inches from its face. I applaud this animal's modeling






3. One of My Rats Sara
This is one of the very first pictures taken of my rats. Rats have a bad rep to begin with, when you think of rats you think of dirty animals eating out of a garbage can. Well is actually the inverse, rats are one of the cleanest animals, and in my opinoin one of the cutest Sara is pictures here sitting in my jacket pocket, she does this quite often actually, but not as much as she likes to sit on my shoulder





2. Snow Illustration
This is, I think, the first drawing I ever did using photoshop. The sad thing is it's one of my best Nah, its not my best, just I really spent a lot of time on this one, and it reminds me of all the hard work i put into life. I drew this with my pen tablet. And I was brand spankin new to the whole tablet thing. I can remember drawing this vividly, I'm a perfectionist so it had to be perfect, I was shaking like crazy(this is a weird habit of mine, shaking while i draw, I still find this happening everynow and then) but, i finnaly did it, and I love the outcome.






1. The Deadly Parrot
This parrot had it in for me. I walked up to the cage, mesmorized by its stunning colors, and it seemed, like the iguana, was going to let me get really close to take a picture. Just as i put my camera almost in the cage and press the button down halfway to focus, then all the way, the parrot squeals and starts attacking the cage, trying to get to me and my camera. I did absolutely nothing to provoke this attack, and I felt bad that the animal was just about hurting itself to attack me. Although it was sad i got a really funny picture out of it:D  And yes, I do see that the parrot is sticking his tongue out at me:D


Thanks for reading my blog on photography. Please leave a comment, if you don't have anything to say leave a comment saying you would say something, but have nothing to say, although its kinda hard not to have anything to say considering you just read a whole bunch of stuff i said

Hero of War

Current mood: Emotional

Hero of War, a song off of Appeal To Reason, the hit album preformed by Rise Against. This song is about Tim's, and most likely the band's, view on war. I listened to this song at first and I, to be honest, really didn't like it. Then I started listening to the lyrics, and my mind was changed. The lyrics talk about how war hero aren't really as glorified as it seems. My favorite part is how he talks about this particular flag that he loves and trusts. I like this part so much not because most of us love our country, but because Tim doesn't name just one flag. This song could apply to any of us. Here are the lyrics, and give the song a listen at my profile

He said, “Son,
Have you see the world?
Well, what would you say
If I said that you could?
Just carry this gun and you’ll even get paid.”
I said, “That sounds pretty good.”

Black leather boots
Spit-shined so bright
They cut off my hair but it looked alright
We marched and we sang
We all became friends
As we learned how to fight

A hero of war
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
And when I come home
They’ll be damn proud of me
I’ll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it’s flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

I kicked in the door
I yelled my commands
The children, they cried
But I got my man
We took him away
A bag over his face
From his family and his friends

They took off his clothes
They pissed in his hands
I told them to stop
But then I joined in
We beat him with guns
And batons not just once
But again and again

A hero of war
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
And when I come home
They’ll be damn proud of me
I’ll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it’s flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

She walked through bullets and haze
I asked her to stop
I begged her to stay
But she pressed on
So I lifted my gun
And I fired away

The shells jumped through the smoke
And into the sand
That the blood now had soaked
She collapsed with a flag in her hand
A flag white as snow

A hero of war
Is that what the see
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it’s a flag that I love
It’s the only flag I trust

He said, “Son, have you seen the world? Well what would you say, if I said that you could?”

Beautiful Moments In Life

Current mood: In Awe

I really enjoy photography, and I recently recieved a brand new Sony Cybershot camera. This is my favorite toy, besides my recently aquired iPod Classic, and it is extremely fun to take pictures of random things. The pictures I just took are of the moon. But, it's not just the moon, there are also these two bright things that anyone would mistake for stars. However, they are not stars, but planets. The on to the southwest of the moon is Venus, now you may say why is venus bigger, well that's because venus is closer to us. That was for you Brooke Jupiter is the bright object to the southeast of the moon. This is just a short blog to show you some amazing things in life.
Here is the picture:

Making New Friends

Current mood: thankful

Making new friends has always been easy for me, but it can also be hard choosing the right friends. I could make friends with 100 random people, 80 would be awesome people, but the other 20 would be different. That's the problem with making friends, it's really fun to do, however, its takes real skill and talent to pick good friends. So far I have been referring to real life, UG is different. Most of the people here are great. I have yet to meet a person I haven't made friends with. Everyone here likes the same things I do, and even if we don't like the same music we have other interests to share. We may like the same sports, guitars, instruments in general, and we hopefully like each other. I have made some really great friends here and I just felt like sharing the wonderful world of friendship with you. If you have read any of my other blogs you would know that most of my blogs have shoutouts in them, so here are a couple of great friends I would like to give a shoutout to:

Steel Skins

Senhin

Zaphod Beeblebr

Florian

Matrix Claw

Breakingxxcore

RhyseOrtiz
