I ventured into the waters of Manga style, which isn't really my thing, but every now and then, ya just gotta live on the edge!
In manga drawings, "...characters often have large eyes (female characters usually have larger eyes than male characters), small noses, tiny mouths, and flat faces..."
I've seen many a manga drawing from amateurs that are quite good, and I understand manga comic books are pretty popular. I don't know if I can pull it off so well though, I'll leave it to the youngsters.
But, I had no other inspiration for "Tape", and now I've got something to show I care.
Thanksgiving went off without a hitch, and we enjoyed the food, some Best Buy hordes, and a bit of board gaming.
As I've mentioned, the trek to Best Buy just started out a few years ago as a destination for get-outta-the-house walk on Thanksgiving and has become sort of a tradition. We weren't there for door-busting, just showed up after the fact. As for me, I mainly enjoy the people watching.
It was pretty crowded, but the store set up extra register lines and everyone was just so darn polite. Lots of, "excuse me", "thanks", "after you", "you go ahead", etc as customers trucked huge carts of TVs and such around. Really, people were buying multiple TVs - 4 or 5 to a cart. I didn't even check the prices, but maybe they were deals?
We managed to emerge a while later without spending anything except for Meego, who did get a good deal on a computer monitor. Wolfgang had some things in his sights, but none were on sale. That's the way the Thanksgiving door busters bust.
Meego's monitor is a nice step up from his previous one, which isn't saying much. I oohed and aahed over the resolution and then asked Meego if he wanted to join us in the *smirk* "real outside".
In movie news, Magnum and I watched Moonrise Kingdom, yet another quirky Wes Anderson production. I liked it in a quirky Wes Anderson kinda way.
