Pinhole Camera Update

I have painted the inside of the box black. Unfortunate, I don't think the paint is holding any good. I picked the box because it already has a hole on the side of the box. I figure it would be one less thing to do. Now I have to go back to square one. It sucks.

Being Semi-Productive

My current project is building a Pinhole camera for my Photography class. I am looking online for intrusion on how to build one. Hopefully, I can work on it tomorrow.

Here is the box I am using:

Today was a semi productive day. Filled out another job application. Hopefully, this one may work out. Then went to the antique mall to buy some vinyl albums. I been eyeing The Beatles album for about a few months now. But my greatest find of the day was Queen’s News of the World album. I been wanting to buy all the Queen vinyl's to go with my Queen CDs. Here my finds for the day:

More Snow Expected

Great, more snow expected in this area again.  We got quite a bit of snow this same time last week. I just saw we are under Winter Weather Advisory until midnight Saturday morning.  I am getting tired of snow. I am ready for spring to be here.

I been working on my hemp jewelry. My goal is to build enough to sell at Hillybilly Days in June. I am thinking about building a website to show off my different works. I found a hosting site for the site. I am just looking for a name for it right now. The only name I got so far is Hippie Gnome.

Another side project I am going to try to do is making homemade Bath Salt. I got the stuff to make it the other day. Within the next day or two, I am going to try out the recipe for it.

Job Search Update

First off...I feel like a job searching whore. I walk in a place and pray to Baby Jesus that the place is hiring. It wears a person out. Granted, I had no plan of attack. Just walked into places. I forgot how many applications I have filled out over the past few days now. It was a lot though. Now I get to do this all over again. Yay me!!!

No one can deny that General Larry Platt created the best water cooler moment from last night's 'American Idol' auditions. If anybody in the Atlanta crowd deserved 15 minutes of fame on national television, it was Platt.

The 62-year-old, who took part in the Civil Rights Veterans Movement in 1963, gave Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell and Kara DioGuardi a comic relief after a long day of auditions when Platt sang his original song, 'Pants on the Ground.' But we're loving all the remixes that have hit the Internet.

The song that we been singing for about a week now:

Current Project

My current project right now is cataloging all my DVDs. I spent years working at a video store and have dvds movies to show for it. I want to get them in CD Book like this:

By doing that, the cases will not take up as much space as it does. By organizing them, I know what I have. It is amazing that I have found movies I didn't know I even owned. I am building a database using Microsoft Excel. I want to keep the list in ABC order but when they are put in the books, I plan name the books like Book A slot 1 to help find any certain title.

I am not sure if I should log in my VHS movies in the list or create it's own list. I have a bunch of VHS movies too. You can find them so dirt cheap now that if you watch them once, you got your moneys worth. Any suggestions on that issue?

My dream is to one have a home movie theater. I would love to have a basement to turn into the home theater. I have tons of movie posters to frame. I would want friends and family to come over and enjoy the home theater too. Right now, it just a pipe dream but who knows.
