Futzing around

I realized a long time ago that I have very little talent in the area of the fine arts. But that doesn't stop me from making weird arts and crafts in my free time. (I *will* finish my video clip of Gandolf and the Balrog, someday.) I really love wrapping paper, so I have been trying out the art of collage.* You might have noticed my previous attempts at changing the background to this blog. I think I have it down now, though. Enjoy.

*I think collage won't hurt the copyright of the wrapping paper artists. I hope.

Favorite Graffiti

I wanted to take a photo of my favorite graffiti here in our village, but it got painted over before I could. But the section of fresh paint will always remind me of the message:

"Günther, why??"

You have to wonder what ole Günther was up to:
  • broke up with someone

  • ran over someone's dog

  • slept with someone's sister

  • put Michael Jackson on his iPod

Such a brief message, and yet so fertile for the imagination!
