yesterday i was sitting in front of sacred tattoo in downtown oakland, admiring the sun, and a whole army of dildos roll by on their segways. these weren’t just any segways either, they had different colored wheels on them. the wheels were also knobby for what looked like the off road adventure that they would never take. they were a few dumb white kids, and in the pack was 3 local suits. the suits ties were flapping in the wind as they rode triumphantly up broadway. they tried as hard as they could to look tough on those things, but trying to look tough on a segway is like trying to eat a banana and not look like you are preforming a falic gesture.i couldn’t stop staring, i couldn’t believe my eyes!!!

last week a client of mine asked me to draw an octopus thrashing around in water. i busted out the sharpies, said alright russle have a seat. i tried to freehand the octopus on and started to sweat. i wasn’t familiar enough with that design, so i told him after drawing on him for fourty minutes that we needed to reschedule so i can have the time to draw it out. plus, the octopus design was a half sleeve and russle is about six foot two inches. at home i busted out the sharpies again, this time on paper. i was able to have complete time to find the proper reference in my library, and do the design based off shapes how you would on the skin, but i was able to fly through it, this is a japanese style design, and i was not familiar enough with them to try to freehand it. i finished the octopus drawing, and was laying in bed looking at it. i was really happy with it, but i got an idea for a second that really exited me. the idea i had was a design that i absolutely love. it was a skull with snake tail like tentacles, thrashing around in blood, and wings at the end of the 8 tentacles. i immediately got up to tape a piece of tracing paper over it, and take notes of my idea so i could start drawing it the next day. the next day i drew it using the octopus a had drawn before for a template. today i had a consult with him to make the tattoo appt. and brought the two drawings down to sacred. i lay the designs out, hoping that he picks the one of the skull. he walks in and i show him, i say “this is the octopus(more straight foreword), and this is the skull octopus with snake tail tentacles,thrashing around in blood”, he says “i like the skull one, lets set an appt. for next week”. FUCK YA!!!

its been about a year since i’ve worn my hearing aid. i know that i should have, for my balance and all, but putting that thing in my ear everyday truly made me feel like an old man, but i started again. a while ago while riding my tricycle, i ripped off the handicapped placard on the basket, stopped using my cain, and rarely brought up my incident. not because it was painful, but i am sick of being disabled, and i am trying go back to the way i was, but a lefty now. i started to think that way when i had to ride my tricycle to wallgreens to grab my anti seizure medication. i went inside to pick it up and stood in line for about an hour. i come out to unlock my trike and before i could unlock it i yelled FUCK THIS!, ripped it off the basket, and threw it away. i already had my meds in my hand, was unlocking my trike, and was wearing a hearing aid. i also stopped wearing the hearing aid because i wanted to pretend. i just recently started to wear it again, because i figured that my equilibrium will never repair itself.
