I'm with Steve on this. The "pencil sketch" looks a bit like a scene out of a "A Scanner Darkly". Just my $.02.


Yeah, I agree. For some reason, every time I do one of those, my beard---which is pretty much white---comes out like heavy 5 o'clock shadow gray. Still learning.

But the other one I think I'm going to be using for a while.

I laughed at this. You probably already know there's a photographer who already uses this moniker. He published a book on gargoyles with an intro by Stephen King some years back.

But thanks for the compliment.

Just so you know, I can't see it on my tablet, tried at two different times on two different days, and nads, zip and even not a dammed thing.

"Nads, zip and even..." :shock:

Ouch. That sounds painful. :oops:

Seriously, though, it's showing well on my iPad. Anyone else having issues?

It looks like a dying hand searching for liquid life. Nice.

Great column, Mark.

I have recently been lamenting a couple of gigs this last week at a place that "experimented" with bringing in live music -- my wife and a piano player -- only to do everything they could to show it wouldn't work.

The bar was quite loud with conversation at one point, yet the owner came over to me to tell me -- rather emphatically -- to turn the music down. It was barely audible, so low that even before turning it down Cris had trouble hearing the keyboard...right next to her. One particular table was talking at a level which was effectively drowning out all other conversation, so it wasn't the band making too much noise it was the patrons. (Arguing that they were trying to hear each other over the band assumes that the band was audible in the din.)

To make matter worse, the table at the far end of the room was actively listening to the music, applauding and talking excitedly whenever Cris announced the next song ("Ooh, I love this one", etc.) When the sound was turned down I saw their demeanor change and they left in short order, likely costing the bar some revenue. As they were leaving they made a point of walking up and tipping the band, then glaring over at the table making the noise.

As you note, some people play music without really listening.
