I am not into a lot of holiday decoration things.. but this little paper-craft project from SwissMiss is so nice, I will have to make one myself. Go to her site to get started on your own.

Lots of stuff been going on out here these days: got laid off, hunted for job, did alotta art work, made portfolios like crazy, got new job, holidays hit.. etc.

Short story is… the Blog has been on a little hiatus. I will get back into posting again.. with this! Also, hope to make some new Rise Industries things happen in early 2009.

As far as that goes, member Tim has been feverishly making his excellent art-zine “I Left This Here For You To Read”, and has brought me on a bit to help out and edit some issues. His first ones are done, and he just sent some my way to distribute in Los Angeles. I suggest you get involved, as that is the best way to actually get your hands on one! The project is really great, and has been getting some press already. He has blogged about it here in his own posts, so I will let those fill you in. Or go to the website for it.

I go this email from my friend Josh today:

“We were thinking last night Obama’s electoral college margin of victory was looking pretty impressive, and given the last couple of elections it is obviously is. But I found this site that shows all the presidential electoral returns in our country’s history, and really Obama’s margin probably doesn’t even rank in the top third (I didn’t do the math). You only have to go back to Reagan v Mondale to find near unimaginable dominance, a 525 to 13 walloping! The biggest margin of victory I found, though, goes to FDR in 1936 over Alfred Landon (You remember him right? With the beard? And the thing?) 523 to 8 (remember Alaska and Hawaii’s 7 votes weren’t available as they were just territories then)! Jefferson also had a landslide victory back in the day (1804), as well as an electoral tie (1800) with Aaron Burr! Cool stuff.

Happy New Paradigm, everyone!
Josh”
