So finally feeling normal after Hurricane Irma. Even though my area was not hit dead on, there was a lot of damage around town, mostly downed trees and fences. Power was also out for nearly a week. I feel bad for the Caribbean because they got hit HARD by Irma and just now Maria. Look at the before and after (This is ONLY after Irma):


St. John, more

I am rewatching Twin Peaks and picking up on small nuggets that I can appreciate having seen the ending. Being in this certain TP group on facebook really gets many theories and ideas in everyones' heads that helps me feel better at times. There really is no explanation and I know it was Lynch's intention to not have to explain anything as we are to interpret it how we individually choose to. It's in our nature to have reasoning behind everything but some things we cannot and that is life and that is what TP was likened to. Life, and how it doesn't always add up. I've been doodling a Twin Peaks tattoo idea because I've wanted a TP tattoo for years and I'm getting the itch again. I have a $100 tattoo place gift certificate that's just burning a hole in my wallet. I hope it didn't expire because I won it years ago.


My mom had to go to the ER due to an allergic reaction to a generic medication. She does fine with it if it's name-brand but what the hell filler did they put inside to set her off? It looks like there are fleshy tea-bags under her eyes now. I know they will take over a week to go down. I had a reaction once and got one bag under my eye. It seemed to only affect half of my face, but it took a while for that to look normal again. I will spare her her dignity and refrain from posting a pic.

I'm getting the itch to start drawing portraits. We used this method in a portfolio class I had in high school in which you overlay your image of choice with a grid and then transfer it to a larger piece of paper with a larger grid to scale. Basically you draw one square at a time instead of being overwhelmed by the whole picture. I'm thinking some Twin Peaks related characters or maybe horror movie related things. Mine from high school was pretty good, it was black and white paint. I am not really at ease with paint but I may give it a shot once the basic sketch is done. But, it's not like photoshop where I can delete mistakes, so there's that. I also want to get my TP bracelets made again, I have two new 3d charms that were made from polymer clay that will be awesome lookin'.

I'm reading No Death, No Fear by Thich Nhat Hanh. It was a gift from a friend because I'd expressed I've dealt with death anxiety. The book can apply to life so it's worth a read even if you don't worry about death/dying. This is a quote that really hit home for me:
“When conditions are sufficient, we manifest. When conditions are no longer sufficient, we no longer manifest. It does not mean that we do not exist. Like radio waves without a radio, we do not manifest.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

I've always like the spacesuit analogy which is basically just like this one with other terms. We are not our bodies, we are within our bodies, like a car or a space-suit. What are your thoughts on this?

I am also reading a book called The Book Collector by Alice Thompson which I actually heard of from a dream-friend [personal profile] beautyizdead via Goodreads. I'm digging it so far! It's a short one so hope to be done today or tomorrow, time permitting. This is getting TL;DR so consider this entry at a close.

I'd love to have all of these as posters... This artist was creating these during the TP Return.

Both of my Twin Peaks charm bracelets have sold! When I get my ducks in a row, I will reorder the charms I need to, and will be adding a new one... Jacoby's coconut! It's made with polymer clay, and I'm also ordering new cherry pies from the same artist:


I think my goal is to slowly make the charms more detailed and colorful rather than all silver plated. I may even get to the point where I make my own charms.

I plan on doing some more wood burning on the log slices, but I probably won't get those in for almost a month. I'd like to either make ornaments or pendants. I'd also like to get smaller ones and perhaps burn in runes for a set of runestones :)

In the midst of making Twin Peaks jewelry, I decided to list them on an etsy store. I've never had one before but I threw a few extra things up, as well.

Check it out :)

A musical artist from very close to where I live had a shitty concert ending when a suicide bomber hit the venue and killed over 20 people; many of them children, and many still missing. No news of any affiliation with terrorist organizations at this time, or motive, but the fact remains that it happened and pretty much renders any "reasoning" behind it null and void.

I rewatched part 1 of the new Twin Peaks and it is definitely worth repeating this episodes after going through once. It gives perspective and makes this a little less bonkers (if that is possible of a Lynch film). I plan on watching the rest of the episodes as time permits.

I have been reading books less than 100 pages to help keep up with my challenge on Goodreads. Do you think that is cheating? I mean they are books. Those among them are:



That about covers it; two of these are still in process. Not sure what to move onto next. What are you reading?

Still absorbing; I watched all four hours of the new Twin Peaks with a free Showtime trial. My heart was literally pounding before it started. All I can say is that the first four parts of Twin peaks were like the moment before peaking on LSD, the peak, and then the evened out come-down. I was very put off during the first episode. It went right "out there". It comes together and things start to ground themselves a bit.

The charms in my Twin Peaks bracelet shopping cart so far:

Silver plated chain charm bracelets
Silver plated jump rings

Charms:
Owl • Diary • Black mug • Donut • Venus De Milo • Traffic light • Cherry pie • Mountain range (resembles twin peaks) • Wooden "log" slices that I will be burning the owl cave symbol into • Broken heart halves • Queen chess piece • Jack playing card • Blue rose • Guardian angel • Motorcycle • Pine cone • Saturn

Still shopping for:
White/black chevron & red satin ribbon, Trout?

Most of these are silver plated and I'll be accenting them with enamel paint. Please let me know if any items come to mind so I can add them to my shopping cart!

I have gone completely bonkers all of a sudden by trying to gather charms to use to make my on Twin Peaks inspired charm bracelets to sell. I am having a good time looking, but it's also getting a bit expensive. I have found some for very cheap for bulk charms (around 2-10). I could get deep into it or just be vague. I will also need to make my own owl cave symbol



I did find a little mountain charm that resembles the above smbol / twin peaks mountains without the triangle emphasized in the middle, and I am having trouble finding a simple charm with the black and white chevron pattern. I'd love to incorporate a red curtain somehow, too. I am open to ideas! Also if you know where to buy bulk charms besides etsy and ebay, let me know :)

I will have to get creative here, or end up charging more than intended for these bracelets. Charms I have in my shopping cart so far: coffee mug, Venus de milo, diary, traffic light, cherry pie, owl, broken heart halves that read "forever", mountain range that resembles twin peaks. Charms I would like to add: owl cave rune, black white chevron patterned item, blue rose, a donut, pine cone, motorcycle, log, native american headress, and I am sure I can dig up many more.

As you can see, it's getting ridiculous.

I'm sick for the second time this year, which is unusual, but the germs just become germier until one day we cannot stand.

At least there is a NEW Twin Peaks teaser showing some of our favs 25yrs later. I'm pretty stoked about the whole thing, but unless I go to my mom's to watch I won't be able to see it until the next day.



I'm reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. It's simple to read, and entertaining. It's also not long as hell, which I appreciate. If you love Norse mythology, definitely read it.

So I'm trying to acquire a taste for black coffee. It's bitter and whatever but when you concentrate on it to find other tastes, it isn't too bad. I just hate the bitterness that lingers.
If Special Agent Dale Cooper can do it, then so can I!

This graphic designer/illustrator Rinaldo Zoontjes is amazing, especially if you're retarded for Twin Peaks.
