I loved Underdog. The cartoon, not whatever this was. It was shown in syndication in the afternoon and I used to watch it at my grandparent’s house when the weather was too crappy for my grandfather to take dad and I out for boating adventures in the Port Charlotte canals.
It looks like we’re going to check out the s/art/q debut party tonight after all. There’s a post on the creative loafing blog about the screenprinting party and also the genesis of the organization. Jungle Pete and his much better half are meeting us for dinner and art, we’ll give a full report later.
I snapped this picture of Sarasota’s most controversial piece of public art as we were driving by, but I’m pleased to see that I randomly captured someone looking up the statue’s dress. This is apparently a popular past-time (make your own pubic art jokes here).
I’m still reading up on the controversy over the statue. It’s all rather bizarre and probably worthy of a later post.
Yesterday I tried making an iphone video while we drover over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. I did it on a whim, in a moving car, with no way to practice the framing or reshoot so I was especially pleased with the results.
I have so-called affinity license plates. I’m pretty sure the only place you can get valid license plates is through the DMV. I mention this because over the last few months several people have asked me where I got my license plates.
The best answer I’ve come up with so far is, “I made them myself…in prison.”
You may be able to get personalized, legal postage stamps now but I’m pretty sure license plates are like driver’s licenses, they need to be issued from a government agency to be valid. I just don’t think you want everyone to be able to manufacture plates, even if the state still issues the tag number.
