Trick or whatever

Here is some self-portrait-photo-art. I've never once had a good Halloween, and this year will be no exception. Which is fine, cause the costume I was going to wear was absolutelyridiculous and so were the people I was going to go with.





New Discoveries reveal a real life Da Vinci Code

This is a press release I paid someone to write a few months ago. I thought I would post it for those new to my site/ blog since it explains everything. I never received any responces from it or the other 3 press releases I sent out.. dammit!

New Discoveries reveal a real life Da Vinci Code

June 18, 2007 --

Unless you've been hiding under a pop-culture resistant rock, you've heard about the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, which raised a number of previously-unconsidered questions about the world's greatest inventor, his work, and his connection to Christianity. Today, an even less likely candidate has emerged with a new non-fiction book about the world's greatest genius Leonardo Da Vinci. This one promises to be even more controversial. Derek Bair, a 24-year old aspiring writer and photographer from Lake Forest, California, has unearthed secrets about Da Vinci that he promises will stun even the experts, including Dan Brown.

Babel - Movie Review

Image
I figure I should start doing reviews of the movies I watch. I literally watch like 10 or more a week (Thanks to Blockbuster Online) I used to want to be a film director, and took a few film production classes, but I dont like working with others. So maybe a movie reviewer would be perfect until I can finance my own movies! I think most movie critics are too critical. I'll watch any movie and I try to make the best of it, and can always find something in it to learn from. It takes a LOT to make a movie, and if it's produced then there has to be something good about it.


Last night i watched BABEL. With Brad Pitt and Kate Blanchett.
Derek's Grade= A-

It's a unique movie in that it's really 4 separate stories that are slightly related. I would definitely classify it as a drama and not an action movie. It's fairly slow paced.

The main story is about two American Tourists in Morroco. While on a tour bus the woman is shot in the shoulder. Being stuck in the middle of a d…

Iraq

Got this in a forwarded email, chain thing. I wonder if the reasons for the US really being there has anything to do with oil?

2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization!

Last Supper HD

Image
These are some of the images i've made from the Last Supper. Click here for more information and pictures!
The Last Supper was in the headlines again today! This time because someone took really really high defintion pictures of it. You can see it HERE be sure to zoom in on the hand that's gesturing towards "mary's" neck. You'll see that it's really pointing to an indentation where an adams apple should be. More information about what i've found in the last supper HERE.





This is a comment I got from someone who's been reading my blog. I thought I would post my response here as well in case anyone else had the same question/ doubt. I think he/she might have been confused about what I mean by layers and animations. I dont have the ability/ equipment to see the various layers and what I'm talking about is theoretical/ a hunch. BUT there have been recent scans on another DaVinci painting that supports my theories. My theory is that while DaVinci bui…

Sidekick Slide & LX

Image
This is the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide, comes out this week. It's made by Motorola. There is also the sidekick Lx (3) out today too. Pretty much the same thing with more features, better camera, and refinements.

I have the sidekick Id now, but would gladly upgrade if I had the $. Damn!

Model Down!

This is what i was talking about on my last Blog. wait for it, she falls straight back to the floor!

I love how they just all freak out and just leave her there laying on the floor! I think I would automatically rush towards someone who just fell over, wouldn't you?

"News"

Halley Berry said "That looks like my Jewish Cousin" on The Jay Leno show. They edited it out because it was anti-Semitic. He showed her a digitally altered picture of herself with a big nose. Would it be racist if they showed her a picture of her being white and she said - oh thats what my white cousin would look like? Or if they gave her Asian eyes? Or how about if they showed her a picture of what her nose used to look like before her nose job? It used to be a "black" nose! And since when do people who are anti-Semitic say that they have Jewish Cousins? I hate political correctness, it's so gay! In an episode of nip / tuck I just watched one of the crazy characters found out that she was 1/16th black and was so ashamed that she stole skin bleaching cream (She was already VERY white) and accidentally burned her face! I can't believe there are actually racist people in the world, it's just brainwashing thats been passed on from idiot to idiot over the …

Fire

Image
This is if of the Man made lake in Lake Forest, with the sky being Red from the fires. I'm not worried, I can swim.

I hate myspace

Image
It all started when I was born on a big mountain, next to a Lake. I never knew what I wanted, but I always got what I asked for. I started to ask a lot of questions and heard a lot of lies. So after 20 years I ran as far away as possible, but then flew back too soon. But I learned that you can't run away from yourself. Some time went by before I fell into a black hole, and thought I had it all. Yes, a heart can hallucinate. But then I lost it and learned that sometimes you have to go fucking crazy before you can find your sanity. Finally who I was meant to be, and who I was met and started writing. For over a year they fought and learned that you have to die a thousands times before you know what life is. Now I'm living between a little Lake and a Forest. I try really hard but hardly ever enough. I've tried to give up, but enough is never enough. I tried to give in, but I don't know how. I think i'm waiting to grow up, but maybe it's only the young that can sav…

The Sky Is Burning

So Southern California is on fire. I could see it makingn the sky red last night and there is ash in my back yard. People are being evacuated in the cities around this area. People seem to think it's a big deal, and i'm sure if your house was going to burn down it would be. But, but, what it makes me think about isn't a fire, but how spoiled we are. It's like everyone is "oh no, FIRE!" and are scared that they might loose their homes, or in some freak accident die. and it's just a fire! I'm almost kinda glad it's happening, it shows people that the world isn't perfect and safe, and the people in charge are in charge of everything. In a day, our entire world could change. Ignorance is not bliss, in that case is it? But hey, we'll worry about it after it's too late to prevent, right?

Maybe now we'll get a small glimpse into the lives and fears of people in Iraq who live everyday in fear of bombs and bullets! It's not a fire, but a…

Mona Lisa's Eye Brows?

Image
She has eye brows now doesn't she! Itsjustlife.com for more

Yet again the Mona Lisa is making Headline news, why? This time a scientist guy said he thinks he might have found eye brows and eye lashes that could have been there. I guess he took really detailed images of the Mona Lisa and saw places where they hairs should be, and he thinks they just faded away over time.

I actually talk about the lack of eye brows in my book. But what's really interesting to me, and yes frustrating haha is that this makes the news, headlines no less, and yet my stuff - does not! hahaha After a year it's just really amuzing to me now.

I found a painting that goes over the Mona Lisa perfectly. And a whole buch more (which you can read about and see here) and yet I can't do anything about it! hahaha

I need to finish up my damn re-write and try harder.

I just saw the Transformers movie, Wow! I really really want a robotic alien car right now. That would literally solve all my problems!

Sick

Image
I think everyone in the world is sick right now. I think the cold medicine companies send out viruses to sell cough syrup. I love nyquil. I've been in vegas for a wedding, which was really really awesome. And then passed out with a slight cough, and lots of cough syrup.

This was on my screen this morning. It's a sign, supposidly.

Good News

Image
I actually saw something in the news that didn't involve death and disease! This Golden Retriever hadn't had puppies in 18 months but once it saw the starving kitten she started to lactate again! Thats like, really endearing and scientifically cool at the same time.

Lactation is weird anyways, did you know men can lactate? this one guy got himself to lactate by the power of suggestion. That freaks me out. That's an interesting question, if you were a man would you nurse your baby if there wouldnt' be any huge boobs or sagging involved? It would make sense that men should be able to lactate. What would a man do in the wild if the mom died at child birth? How would he feed that baby? Maybe he would start to lactate as well?

Learning to love, yourself.

Last night I realized something, i'm totally insecure - at least half of me. Emotions are stupid, but when you try to understand them - they just become even more stupid. It's like you can think about literally anything in the entire world, but we'll sit and worry about the same things over and over and over. WHY?? It's like we're expected to be sad and dramatic. I don't want to be like that anymore. I want to be positive and optimistic. I want to laugh a lot. I want to figure out what the hell - "Happiness" really is!

Sometimes I just get so panic'ed for no real reason, and then i start thinking: "What the hell do i really have to be afraid of!?" Then you watch the news and tv for 10 minutes and it becomes clear. It brainwashes you into being afraid of everything, big boogy men, murderers, terrorists, bombs, spiders, carbs, drugs, and pretty much everything in the world gives you cancer!

I just dont want to be afraid anymore. It's an…

Top Chef Finale / Dancing with the idiot

Image
VS
VS

I've watched the whole season of top chef, some of the - most of the episodes more than once. Whenever they have those marathons i just kinda end up watching the whole thing. I really like reality tv, especially when there is a competition. I think it's like watching a nature show but with humans intead of animals. You get a glimpse of how the "real world" and "real people" actually are, most of the time. Honestly I dont know anything about food. I couldn't tell you which of them "should" win, it is a cooking competition and the viewer only has the judges responses to go off of, and maybe how it looks. THen there are the guest judges that everyone idolizes, who i've never even heard of, and really couldn't care less about. Besides that Rocco Despirito guy, i like him for some reason. But I mean, come on, they aren't gods, they cook food- Big Deal. I hate food, I hate eating. If I had the choice to just never eat again, and be…

Madonna with the Yarnwinder stolen?

Image
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071004/ap_on_re_eu/britain_stolen_leonardo

I just read in the news that Leonardo Da Vinci's painting "'Madonna with the Yarnwinder" has been recoved - I didn't even know it was stolen!

In the news last month I read that they had done scans on that exact same painting and could decode the order da vinci painted each stoke - when did they have the painting to do that if it was stolen since 2003? hmm You would think you would need the real - actual - painting to do that. So when did they have it if they just recovered it recently?

I was just looking for a picture of the painting to include in this post and I found a version of it made by Giacomo Salai! Da Vinci's lover, who most of my book is based on. I never realized he painted a version of it. Interesting. He's pretty good. I'm about to start re-re-writing my book soon enough. I have it planned out, i just have to modivate myself to actually write.

360 - Josh Hodge

Josh Hodge is my new favorite artist. He's on myspace and isn't signed yet, but tours with Elliot Yamin. Here is his myspace page http://www.myspace.com/joshhoge He just got some kind of deal with Geico. He's awesome.

Karma is a big fat bitch. That's why I try to be good, then she stays on my side.

So that's the way it is
you can just go and find someone else
and let me go like you dont owe me a thing
well i can handle this
i've been through it all before
and you'll get yours and i'm gonna bounce back again
you can tell someone that you'lll be there
and then walk away
like you don't care
i'm not saying this cause i'm mad,
i just want you to understand
one day, it's gonnna catch up with you

what goes around comes around

and before to long it's gonna get done to you
and you might think you got away
played me for a fool
but you'll know
360 it's coming right back to you

you must be sitting on to…

Screw the Iphone

Image
For some reason I dont like the Iphone, I dont like Ipods. They are annoying. I don't like macs either. I think microsoft might have brain washed me at some point in my development on dos, playing reader rabbit or something. Whatever it is, I will never buy an apple product!!! Something always breaks on them, the battery doesn't work right, and you can't upgrade them.

But this phone, by LG. I would buy this one. It has even more features, and best of all - which I must have in a phone is a full qwert keyboard underneath. Once you have a sidekick (i've had version 1, 2, and 3) you can't really go back to one button texting. It just takes too long. Although I must say, i'm kinda over that whole manic phone upgrading compulsion that makes you want to trade in your "new" phone every 3 months.

December 4th 2004: Jesus hates my car:

December 4th 2004:
Jesus hates my car:

If not him then it must be little forest people, or neighbor hood kids, or chance. Hmm
First I went out to my car a couple weeks ago and there is a dent in the hood, no scratch, just a dent – random.

Next I’m helping __ roommate jump start her trasy van and I guess we hooked up the wires wrong, they started smoking, melted, and the places where they were touching my car, also melted. Thanks so much. So now my front bumper has like 5 melt marks, the head light included.

This was before bottoming out and scratching up the whole front lip! Garrr

Moving on, a couple days ago I went out to find what appeared to be an egg having been throwin at the side of my car, further reflection led to the eggs coming out of the trash can when it was being emptied, so that made it my mom’s fault, but I guess the forest people could have put them in there to, or Jesus.

So I’m thinking, fuck, my car sucks I want a new mustang. But no my car doesn’t suck it’s the forest peo…

My Special Mom

“My special mom: My mother is the most wonderful mom in the world. She is as pretty as a rose. She weights 100 pounds and she’s 6 feet tall. Her favorite fod is corn and her favorite place to eas is at the ocean. In the good old days when my mom was little, she used to play. I think my mom looks funny when she dressed up at holowen I wish my mom would ie a new car with me everday! I wouldn’t’ rade my mother for.”

March 20th 2005

A little kid just came up to me and said: “You’re a teenager?”– Um no I’m not. “You’re a parent?” – Um, no, I’m in between. “you’re a kid?” – um, I don’t know what I am so I don’t know what to tell you. “so you’re nothing?”
That little guy brings up a good point~ Just what category am I in? I’m 22 so technically I can’t be counted as a teenager.. but that doesn’t mean someone my age couldn’t be counted in that category, but even in the teens there is a huge range.
I guess I’m in the undecided college student “what do I want to do with my life” lump of people although we range from people who have graduated to the people just starting. It’s been hammered into our heads ever since Jr. High that we have to go to college or else we’ll become a hopeless loser on welfare. So we subscribe to that and base our lives around it and forget the endless possibilities that are available without college. You can work your way up, you can start your own business and without college you get paid the who…

Sfumato Gallery

Image
I just uploaded my next book Sfumato Gallery to print a test copy. It's 250 pages and mostly pictures and basically a summary of Discovering DaVinci's Daughter with a ton of pictures. I have to see how it looks printed, and it's easier to edit and check for errors that way. It'll be available in the next few weeks. I'm also working on a printed version of "Why Weight?" and of course the updated version of my main book, which I can't seem to even motivate myself to look at. But i'll go a few weeks doing nothing, then a couple days writing non-stop.

Life's actually the best it's been all year. I'm so glad to be home. I'm so glad to be over the bullshit that was holding me back.

I've also been going over all my old personal journals and decided to put some of them up on my web site.. I still can't believe how much I used to write about pretty much nothing.
