My Valentine's gift to my wife (my first ever iTunes iMix)...

When I was in college and was dating my wife, she would make a 4.5 hour trip one or two times a month to see me. At the time, I was heavy into making mixed tapes so before she would visit me, I'd take the time out and make a mixed TAPE for her... that was way before the advent of CD burners and one of my prized possessions at the time was a double tape boom box that easily allowed me to play tapes from one head and record on another. So I'd make a 60 or 90 minute tape of all sorts of music so she'd have something to listen to (and remember our weekends together) while she was driving home.
So for this Valentine's Day (today), I thought I'd do something similar - although it's a heck of a lot easier making a mix CD then it is a 60 - 90 minute tape, let me tell ya!
Anyway, if you like the songs on this list, click the title and rate my humble little iMix list.

-Currently listening to the CD list in iTunes right now...

Those ol' familiar Oz characters...

I'm currently working on a project for CommunityMX where I came up with this (you might recognize a few of the characters). I just finished these on Saturday...

Currently listening to a 4 CD set of 1970s rock music I recently purchased at Wal-Mart for $9.95!

Drawing someone else's creation...

A friend of mine on another forum posted some character sketches of his super hero team. I took great interest in the two characters that were (I believe) fused with watermelon DNA to give them rock hard skin... I have to confess, I really didn't pay too much attention the the origin of the characters. They just looked like it would be fun to add a humorous slant to them.

So I posted a black and white image to the forum and said if anyone wanted to color them, they were free to do so. Another member, Musicaldruid, decided to take me up on my offer. Her color variations are below. She has a DeviantArt gallery and I will post the link to that gallery once I find it in the assortment of e-mails I have backed up.

Anyway, here is the original line art:

And here are the two colored versions MusicalDruid came up with.
