your opinion




So my goddesses, since I respect your opinions above all others, tell me what you think.

Above are 3 pics and tell me which idea you like the best.
I have cut out paper dolls - now do you like the doll alone, or with her friend? and do you like the doll flat to the paper or or or, as in the 2nd photo, raised above about 1/2 inch so you can see a shadow. none of it is done of course, the dolls are not painted much and the background will be a deteriorated collage - but which one so far? What do you think? wax will be applied so the figures when glued onto the paper will not appear to have any seams (the magic of wax). Even if I keep it raised and elevated from the canvas it will be waxed over as well.
what to do. what to do.
Ill be working on it Tuesday morning but not before 9 am so you have time to tell me.

Life Book: Rub On Words

This is uploaded to youtube. Notice the difference.

in a bad. bad. mood.

I put up two videos on youtube if you want to check them out you can get there thru the video link on the RIGHT here in that list over there that says my videos. Ill put them on the channel page.

I am not happy though. the videos I am making now are much much too blurry compared to the videos I did with my crappy pc and I have no idea why. Im about ready to cry.

Im uploading them to blip tv and I know they will be clear at least there. for now this will have to do.
I need to find out what the hell is going on.

check this out

when I leave the house I can put pooh zen cam on. this is a great site. Ive been watching this puppy for 20 minutes now.

Mittsy

whats cool is that we can have live cam and have a chat room too. so its a group experience.


edit.....
My internet speed is not nearly enough. You need 400 and I barely have 100 with the DSL. thats ok. we'll make ichat and aol work.
there is also stickcam right? i have to look into that.

Life is good.

I have a 3 year warranty so no worries right? they will fix it. and then. oh and then. it will be awesome. I dont turn on that computer now because I dont want to unintentionally make the problem worse. I dont want to work with it until I can see video.

so I have withdrawn from all of my classes except the math that I need for my BA. even two weeks to go until the semester ends it is not worth the hassle. I do not want to teach little kids and none of these classes go towards my bachelors degree. (its from another school entirely) Im done, I give up! Im taking my life back!

you should hear my mom on the phone too as she tells me about what she tells her girlfriends. how Im going to work with the handicapped. I did get very excited about it, for one afternoon, but I also got excited about becoming a professional dog washer and moving to Canada. I am an easily excitable girl. Its amazing I havent joined the circus. So I let her be happy and she finally has something to tell her friends she can be proud of. I know she just wants to see me stable and doesnt believe I can be with the art thing. But I do. I think with 2 hour dvd playshops I could make a nice life for myself. and publish childrens books as well. me and pooh sleeping late and drinking yummy hot things. no stress. no running. no more running! I cant do it. its not me. I dont want to be in the rat race. Let the rats win.


I dropped my car off at the shop so they can put heat in it again. mmmm heat.
Tomorrow I begin the rest of my life. All I have is math homework to concentrate on now, which makes it kind of fun. Im on a DIY decorating kick too as I fashion an 'area' for you all to watch during Live Cams. Pooh has a chair near the cam for pooh zen cam, and Im thinking of painting the round kitchen table there red. Red and and then sand it to make it look old. Put mexican patterns around it, small birds in trees.

I take the Mac to the apple store on wedsday so live cam will begin shortly after.

This Might Be A Love Letter

Hello Mr. Steve, I am a former PC user who just 4 days ago switched over to YOUR side of the world, and wanted to tell you a little something. Its a love letter of sorts because WOW this is a beautiful computer. I am an inspiring Video aRt How To Queen whos growing fan base lead me to take all of my student loan money and invest $2700 dollars of iMac LOVE. Putting off paying for the heat I do not have in my car (brrrr....its cold here in Dirty Jersey)... So With no apple stores near me I drove, at night, in the cold, to your beautiful store in Cherrry Hill some 40 mintues away. Someone told me that I should open the imac up in the store, edit, export video right there but I said NAY! I trust this beautiful white apple. And so I bought it, took it home, and opened it there. And so, Mr Steve. It has a color anomalie. reds and fleshtones, anything bright, flickers like a neon sign advertising GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS gone wild all over the video I would like to make. Still photos too. Video is unwatchable.So I call up a wonderful technician on your 1-800 line, he couldnt help me but his boss did, er, tried to. Wanted me to install new updates then call back and he would speak to me. I installed, the problem remained so I called him, but he never called back. Not for 2 days now. I left all of my info on the phone (case number, phone, etc). Im just sayin Mr. Steve, since its your company and all, that it shouldnt be like this. I want to love yr company. I do. Im an artist. I feel like its my right to own a Mac. and Im willing to pay the money for a new processor and whole new system each time HELL I dont mind. But Id like it to work when I took it home. I know you cannot control every nuance of what happens in such a large company, Im a realistic girl, but perhaps whatever caused this ANOMALLY (had to look it up, now I love that word and try to fit it into casual sentences. I think of myself as an anomally. so me and the flickering video and photo lights probably belong together), maybe there is an error in the way things are loaded, I dont know. Adriene (extension 2385 from the california store) should have called me back after I was so nice to him when I probably should have been fuming. I worried because he was working overtime. I encouraged him to get coffee. I bought the best of the best iMacs Mr. Steve. I am a 5'2 inch girl in a tiny apartment with dying plants. I gave you my savings. I shouldnt have this driver problem. I bought a powerful computer with the best of everything. It should have been perfect when I brought it home. At the very least Adriene should have called me back. I wanted to have faith in your company, Hold onto the dream that yes, business could be different, But its just another organization isnt it?With clever marketing.Sigh. Sincerely,Suzi Bluof SUZIBLUTUBE http://www.youtube.com/suziblutube

2 Things

One, Im hacking. a crazy hack and it hurts. I should have bought a decongestant. I got Robitussin DM and it does nothing. nothing. nothing. Im in hacking hell.

What cough syrup/decongestant should I buy so I can endure math tomorrow?

Two, since I cannot right click to select and save a picture on the web, I have not a clue how to do it with the mac.   How do I select?

Oh Baby!

so $2,700 dollars later...

hee
I have the BIGGEST (24 inches. Its 4 times the size of my head)
and FASTEST (2.8 GHz 2 Duo processor) computer EVAH!
so what that I live in a studio using milk crates as furniture,
I am the QUEEN OF COMPUTER VIDEO!

of course there is a glitch, there is a color anomaly ( video and photographs look solarized) but I am assured this is not a big deal and can be fixed. the guy is calling me back.  I have a 3 year warranty in which everything is covered so Im not worried.

SO!
I have iChat now - if youre on Mac.com OR have an AOL instant message name send me an email and Ill add ya as my buddy.  Im still sick and not pretty to look at today but it should be interesting to watch me sneeze and eat bags of cough drops.

this is kewl.
I never have to me lonelysad again : D

ALSO!
I just thought of it.  I could paint live on cam. not to teach or anything but just PAINT CAM. I LOVE that idea. Suzi paint cam.  Pooh cam.  ah  hahahah ha haha  POOH CAM IS AWESOME. although. pooh would have to be in the realm of the cam and its kind of high on the computer. but still, so many possibilities.  if you have art questions we can just chat.  maybe we can group chat? I dont know how iChat works.  

this is so kewl.

These are the coolest hats EVER

especially the ones toward the bottom.

here

Did I tell you I was interning at a Catholic School?

3 days a week.
I have lots to say about it but I shall wait.
mostly it has to do with female repression.
so I am a teachers aid for 3 and 4 year olds and I can
honestly say although I am very good at the job, the job
is not for me.

Lookee at this cute little site. I want to do mosaics very
badly. I decided that while I stay in this apartment Im going
to make it very beautiful. Paint the walls and add things. so
diy decorating is what Ill be obsessed with now.
I love the painted hanger on the bottom. how pretty and delicate.

DIY decorations

ooh and this one looks good too

I admit I feel more confident when I wear make up. I am learning though to feel beautiful without it.

A Devil And Blu

dg1


dg3

Sometimes that which is bad for us appears charming. Devils can be people or they can be caffeine or ciggarettes or watching TV endlessly when you're not enjoying it. This is my interpretation of hell - doing something that is not loving toward ourselves because we cant seem to do anything else. Its hard to break away from old patterns. But we can!

You are so much more than you believe yourself to be!
We all can resist Devils when they come courting at our door!

Suzi Blu art vlog

Well, it uploaded. Unfortunately my mac will not export any more videos so there is still a problem and this quality is nOt good enough for me. too blurry and wavy and crappy. but still, here you are. dont forget about me! suzi needs love! When I do come back for real I want it to look really really great.

Skating Blissfully

Well, if I cant upload videos at least we can watch someone who can. I almost cried watching this. Tascha deserves all of our love.

Blurry images and a bad attitude



Since its so late at night the photos I took look yellow and blurry so that was the ending to my very annoying sunday. Ill need to reshoot them tomorrow in the sunlight. so no auction tonight. along with no video so Im just in a grouchy mood. at this point iMovie refuses to export so I can do nothing.  I made a finished quicktime movie and it plays fine but will not upload. tomorrow I will buy blank cds - burn the movie - then see if my pc will upload it. If that works out then I will do that until I buy whatever it is I need so I can JUST MAKE VIDEOS. I cant even tell you how annoyed I am.  I will spend any amount of money I dont care I just dont want anymore hassles or problems. I want to vlog and I want to post that isnt too much to ask!!!

Deep breaths.

student loans student loans student loans. perhaps they will be in the mail tomorrow.  Then I will go to the genius bar and get whatever they say I need to get.  This situation is temporary. I keep telling myself that.




Update

whenever I watch videos now on youtube - the video stutters and skips frames so something is wrong somewhere. If it were a PC Id defrag but I have no clue how to stop this.


and so Ive tried to upload the various quicktime files Ive made onto youtube, onto blip.tv, but it gets stuck in 'contacting site' and never uploads.

sigh.
I have video. not good video not great video but I have learned the program and next time I can do something very great. but great is not even good if no one can see it.

I will breathe
and be patient.
Ive been bent over since 9 this morning and its now about 6.

Video Finished

and ready to go. Has anyone here exported from iMovie before?

Saturday, November 24, 2007

something something soon today

1) iBook 2004=I uploaded video-deleted it-emptied the trash - yet it doesnt go back to the original 19 gig that I had its staying at 17. I havent put any other files on it - so the question is: tell me all the places where files can hide.  


I know I know, go to the genius bar. I will tomorrow if they have an open appointment.

2)Since I am between editing programs at the moment I will make a vlog for you today.  Something small with the Mac. Hopefully my student loan check is in the box today and I can upgrade and get newer editing programs! YAY!

3) so I will see you kitties later today.

BIG KISSES!
XXXOOO
little kisses
xxxooo

A little Mac Help


Anyone have a 2004 iBook? I want to know how to save video that I am importing onto an external drive. When I do I get the message:

that the disk is responding slowly it may not be fast enough for your movie. if you have a lot of audio clips you might try muting the audio tracks to see if it helps playback speed. I unchecked the little boxes but still it wont upload.

Nov 23 National Buy Nothing Day

Join me and BUY NOTHING tomorrow! Think about it - do your loved ones really need the gifts you are planning to give them? Seriously. socks? again? a CD. a friggin nother bathrobe? Think about what you are buying and dont be mindless and buy because its expected of you. The stress. The malls. For what? 2 seconds of ooh gee wiz thanks for this thing and then a lifetime of forgetting it. If you want to get holiday presents for loved ones stay home tomorrow and make them things instead.

Ideas

Home from my parents

Just saying goodnight to my babies

shhhhhhhh
sleeepy time.
goodnight babies =^_^=
sending you kitty kat kisses
and dreams of clouds that slurp
and churp.

I have the most hilarious things to shOw you OMG
some thIngs my brother found at a flea market recently so perfect
serendipitious for sure for the next vid
of which i cannot tell u about yet. but its good.
but right now my eyes are so heavy Ive been up so many hours and I want to SLEEP and DREAM and curl up in red blankets with pooh.
Tomorrow I shoot and dump video and play with my little white box of love for the
1st time.

Boy that will be good.

Beautiful Christine



She agrees we should have an Artist's Way Video Group. When Im better we will make that happen.

I have a fever.
boo.

THANKSGIVING SPECIAL

It just doesnt get anybetter than Davis, and he's from Jersey too!

Im sick and I didnt know it!

I dont feel terribley crappy but I looked in the mirror this morning and gee my cheeks are kinda red. then I realized, yeah I feel a bit cold and hmmm Im sniffling. OH I must be sick YAY an excuse to lay around!

which I need. winter break has officially started and so has my new life of stress free leisure.
today me and pooh wait for the darling ups man to bring my wonderous new computer. pooh can barely contain his excitement but puts on an amazing exterior of kitty kat kalm laying on his back with his white belly up. He looks sleepy and relaxed but I know his insides are dancing. With Miss Blu's new dedication to all things art and video he knows whats coming:

1) Ok so I wanted to be the divine queen of diy yourself godddess crafts but coming up with worthy projects every week is a lot tougher than I thought. so Im going to stick with what I know and perfect that - art journaling videos - and inbetween when I think of something very interesting to break it up I will add that. I thought maybe goddesses would get bored of journals but every day I get an email from a new one who has just bought her first book to work in. so there you go.
2) While pooh lives we truely nEEd to see him with a green screen behind him - flying perhaps? over wine gardens in tuscany? Pooh needs adventures. so there will be that.
3) and with my new open schedule of only night classes I can dedicate all of my love and time to all of this. and that makes pooh happy. I wont be gone so much and especially early in the mornings like now - he likes to lay next to mommy while she stays home and paints. a painting mommy is a happy mommy is a happy pooh.

so we look out the window.
and we wait.
and I think I want pancakes
with drippy syrup
and hot tea
and I have a dvd of EDDIE IZZARD
and that will be
my wednesday morning.

almost there

so the divine miss EM says SUZEE come to the dark side I want to be the one to take you there scream in ecstasy. Give up your formal life and let me show you the wayyyy!

Miss Em is sending me an ibook laptop. shes taking me from PC land to MAC land.

(squeal!)

I have to learn an entire new system Ive never so much as breathed on a mac before but Im excited. So new videos are not that far away.

So while we are waiting Im hoping you can help me with ideas for shows that will catapult me into goddess crafter divinity. I want glamerous gaudy non-useful items we can make JUST CAUSE. can be anything. give me ideas. It will be a good opportunity for me to try everything Ive always wanted to try. like mosaics with polymer clay.

any ideas you have at all. I love my blogger ladies.

Im at school. time for behavior management and a power bar.
c u tomorrow

Its kind of lame when you take the batteries out of your vibrator and put them into a pencil sharpener but that kind of says it all now doesnt it.

and it totally sUcks not having a computer.

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Did I mention how beAUtiful you look today darling?

well so!
tonight the wonderful Nancey B is lending me her tech husband over the phone to give my computer much techy phone love. and maybe I can be back up soon. typing at the library is very overated I cant seem to think over all the 10 year olds sitting next to me playing games and IMing their friends.

bad news first
even if I do get up I have to fix my computer problems. I am not an irrisponsible girl. I am always five minutes early to wherever I go. the reason Im late with my vids most times is that I have to defrag several times in the middle of making them. so what should take an hour will take 3. and editing takes 4 hours so you dont need to understand sadistics to do this math.

it takes quite forever.

bad news is that I am going to wait until I get my student loan money (begining of december! not far away!) and Im gonna get my baby computer ready ready to do some real things! Put photoshop on it, a real editing program, mucho space and memory. There is no need to continue to make things hard, you know? why live with so many obstacles. why dont I just do it right if Im going to do it.

so the good news is that in a few weeks suziblutube will be back EVERY WEEK AND ON TIME and also will have dvds to sell (cheapie - 5 episodes on 1 dvd plus EXTRA footage for 5.00) as it is now I have to delete them as soon as I make them because I have no burner to put them on. and I dont want to have to keep deleting all my work right?

In the meantime I will use a friends computer and keep up with you all. I will also be posting journal art lessons thru photos so that will be fun.

IM NOT LEAVING YOU...I will come back even better. but I must take care of the computer and make it right. Ill be putting up a lot of art in the coming days cause I need computer cash so there will be a lot to choose from if you are looking for interesting christmas gifts.

please keep writing to me so I dont feel like my goddesses are leaving me.

much love,
Suzi Blu

Ill still get my BA in psyche cause Im one class away but Im putting education on hold. shhhh dont tell my mom. she was finally happy about something I was doing. Next semester I am putting my desires in a basket and hoping up the multi-media highway of love confused yet?
Next semester I am taking 1) DESKTOP PUBLISHING
2) INTRODUCTION TO MULTI MEDIA
3) and one class of my choosing for the 3
credit elective for my BA

No education classes no clinincs, nothing but my dreams.

Book of art and poems by stellan to be released Valantines day.

This Morning I Have Been DIVINELY TOUCHED

Thats it Goddesses, I am starting my own religion.
Lets make a religion dedicated TO ART.
yay?
And to start off with
as your Pastress of Pink Paint and Butterfly Wings
YOU ARE NOT A SINNER
Ok? do you hear me? No matter what youve done - you did it with a messed up head. You are not to blame. Seriously. Listen to me. When you do f**ked up things its cause you are thinking f**ked up thoughts. You would do better at the time if you thought you could.
You are not a sinner
you are a goddess
The universe loves you. always.

I think a religion to art would be Tre' Kewl. We could make up rituals and have altars ooh ooh ooh! and wear funny hats. and have songs. Its so needed. More so than anything I endured listening to this morning which was all god has a penis and Im a bad person.

I must write a paper on sexual scripts for my marriage class then I will be back with art from yesturday.

lalalala LA!

Sunday sUnday

Disclaimer:
Talking about issues is a good thing even when people disagree. The problem with the world is that people think just because they take different sides of an issue they need to not like each other. conversation and debate is always good, always. And in this blog I would like people to say exactly how they feel as long as it is done with respect and without personal attack.

As far as culture and the fear of loosing it - my opinion - this is like DNA mixing. Eventually everyone is going to sleep with everyone and we will all be one color YAY! Although I appreciate and love different cultures I do not fear them mixing. HOW WONDERFUL MY WORLD IS that I can eat chinese food, mexican food, go to an ashram and learn buddhist secrets, have a cannoli for lunch, and I am all the better for it. My life is mixed media. All blended together. I can make mexican crafts and pretend I live in Mexico I can make mosaics and imagine I live in Tuscany. What is the difference if I am from there or not?

Have you seen the movie Gangs Of New York? When the second wave of immigrants came the first wave felt threatened. They called themselves 'natives', these were Irish right? I forget. They felt like the new immigrants were taking their jobs intruding with their culture, changing America...as if America represents one place in time like a snapshot and thats how it should be ALWAYS.

But if there is a definition of America then it is of mixed peoples, and at what point do you say Okay enough cultures we want just one...what, yours? Not any one culture defines America, that is the point. That is the whole reason it was started. But that doesn't mean we have to cling to our given culture. Yes they are going to blend yes time passes and the way it is now is nOt the way its always going to be. Stop grasping. You are clinging to an idea only out of fear. Your culture does NOT define you. How limiting! Its like putting peas on one side of your plate and the mash potatoes on the other OH MY GOODNESS DONT LET THEM TOUCH.

I say - make a mess! Let there be food mixing culture combination CHAOS.

Anywhoo


I have to go to church this morning and idontwanna! (whine).
For my world religions class I must give a presentation weds, I chose a Baptist church.
I actually like church in that it is otherworldly. I like catholic churches because of the pagentry and incense and DRAMA. I would lik to go and confess in a little booth. I havent done that since Ive been, eh, hrm. 12? what sins could I have possibley had at that age? I didnt even know what a blow job was.

No but really. I dont believe in sin. Still though, I like church. It would be nice to be caught up in something this morning. I wish I knew a church in which people were prone to speaking in tongues. That would be an interesting morning.

Church or skewl or foodshopping its hard to get me out of the house in the morning. I resent it. I want to linger over tea and answer my plethera of unread emails. I want to pet pooh who is acting strangely I want to show you what I painted all day yesturday when I turned off the phone and SAT THERE and worked.

Be back tonight with pretty pictures of art.

video is done and nearly 10 minutes long. I had to find a new place to host it and it will take a few hours to upload so now we are looking at tomorrow morning.

I made a smaller one for YT that I was going to let you see but Id rather you see yours first. you know I make special longer videos for my bloggers dont you? I dont even like making the small 3 minute YT ones anymore but its great exposure. Its so much more FREEING to make the longer ones. I rattle on and on about this and that its awesome.

so I do apologiz, but it is done! and its long! its got pooh and fairies and new songs and silliness. It will be worth it. come back to see me in the a.m.

goodnight darlings.

Miss blu

Its Coming!


I locked myself out of my computer for most of today, messed up my password setting and had to take it to Best Buy where for 31.00 and 2 minutes later I was password free.


Editing. Video will be up tonight.

Ok I have a project for ya

I am wondering if someone would like to make a cool new banner for me? The one I have above is too small but I wont have photoshop again for a few weeks (computer thingy problems). I could send you dig pics of artwork and me and you can make me something good yes?

anyone who has time and the inclination let me know. Id sure appreciate it.

Look Im in a Zine!


The Wondeful Miss Kira interviewed me so pick up your copy (affordable!) today. Learn all you want to know about Suzi Blu! Well, a lot. If there is anything else you want to know just ask me. i.e. I prefer Hanes undies over anything else and my car floor is litered with protein bar wrappers. See arent you glad you asked. There is just a WEALTH of information I have yet to lay on you. All in good time.
In the meantime - pick up her zine HERE

The LOVE Angel


So I curse a lot, you know that right? You can tell I know... you can tell ...people can tell from looking at me that I probably smoke and curse and do a lot of drugs but I actually I just curse and Im better than I used to be I mean, I havent cursed hEre much have I? And its a dilemma bcz young people watch my vids but do I have to censor myself on my blog too? And its not about cursing really but more subject matter and how tame do I need to be? Do I want to be looked on as a roll model.... well, yes. I think Im good for young girls in a way I encourage them to be LOUD and FREE ahh but Ive done a lot of crazy shit they dont need to do, but they'll prolly do it anyway huh?

I had something to tell you but Ive forgotten.

I think I want to be the internet DIY queen what do you think? Not just art journaling which we will do but there so much out there. I'll be for the people like me who cant afford cable or a proper diy channel. Ill be crafting from the trailer park how hilarious would that be. Id get me a pink flamingo and have the darndenest troll garden this side of wherever the hell the coolest troll garden is. You hear stories tho about the types (scary men) that live there drunk and raping their neighbors dogs. so I dont think its safe for little free spirited me who would befriend every interesting shabby person she met.

but what was it I wanted to say i hate this.

eh, Ill remember tomorrow

LitTleGirlBlu

Thank the lovely sweet Melissa for making me videos <3

Check out her channel and give her LOVE here

She is a wild wild woman who needs a blog! Tell her to start one.

sOOkieBLu

Look what eM made me!

I would like to do THIS for my next video.
What do you think? yes?

Someone mentioned that they can't afford cable so they cant watch the DIY channel and I cant afford cable and I cant watch the DIY channel so I thought...hey. I'll make a DIY channel but do it mY way. yay?

That would be entirely fun.

Thursday is thee DAY

Let's say that THURSDAY early evening will be new video posting day and then we can all get some sleep! Wednesdays are working out very well for me to paint/shoot but here it is 10:30 and Im not nearly finished editing. so let it be thursdays from now on. This gives more people time too to email me photos of YOUR PET WEARING CLOTHES which makes me happy.

I want to talk a little bit about the art for the next video as well. I made a painting 12 x 24, pretty big took me most of the day. i lub it very much. But just because i did it out of a journal does not mean all of the techniques cant also be applied inside a book. So what I want you to do in preperation for tomorrow nights video, is to gather your collage papers and think about houses (for that is what I made). Pages of text, patterned papers. Think about the colors of your favorite home or the home you wish you had. You could also write about 'home' on a piece of lined notebook paper and use that in your collage. Glue it as the roof, as a door. You'll see more what i mean tomorrow.

Now in my painting since I am collaging outside of a journal I covered my painting in wax. Not something you want to do inside a book because after much handling if the wax is too thick it will crack. What i have done though in the past inside my journals is this: Melt Soy Wax chips with a quilting iron over a journal page. let cool. Then, take something like a plastic ruler and scrape it all off. what is left is a micro thin coat of wax that seals collage papers nicely. try it. and tell me what you think.

Here is a link to the Quilting Iron

In my video you'll see that i cover my collage with Beeswax.
The book in which I learned this technique is from Claudine Hellmuth and is called
Collage Discovery

hope you had a happy day.
c u tomorrow
=^_^=

BLU

Take pictures today or your babies (whether they be from your womb or covered in fur) in a halloween costume and I will put them all together, along with pooh, and make a GODDESS BABY SLIDE SHOW.

ok off to paint and film.
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
EAT MUCH CHOCOLATE!
Video will be up either at Midnight or tomorrow after math. Im pretty sure it will be midnight though. Im feeling productive.

happy happy day!

Pooh is sO excited!

He cant wait for mommy to add just a little bit extra material to his halloween costume so it can fit around his big cat head and fat cat belly. Then, oh then, he can parade around suburbia in style. mommy on the other hand does not yet have a costume and will run to the store and find something cheap and ethereal.

pooh in his little hat.
oh so cute

We've had a few field trips for school recently where we toured facilities we might be assigned to intern at. Todays trip was to an Abilities Center where those who are mentally challanged (and others) learn skills to work in the world. OMG Can i tell you! As far as a day job as far as something to pay bills while I work on my fairytale and art...i want to teach art to the mentally challanged. Absolutely. much more than teaching to children. I practically cried when i was there. everyone was so happy and everyone showed it. big huge smiles and everyone happy to do their little jobs that they were learning. I would love to teach these people to collage and learn about picasso and matisse, have them make their own paper cut outs and JOURNALS oh good lord can they keep a journal? I need to find out.

I must get a job with these people ; )

Am I annoying yet?

In a department store there are 120 customers, 90 of whom will buy at least one item. If 5 customers are selected at random, one by one, find the probability that all will buy at least one item.

Now I know that I must subtract the probability of the 90 from 1. but EH? why cant I do that?

the answer in the book is 243/1024 but it does not show how it got there.

yay math love!

Math Test Tomorrow

Ive been studying like mad so Im getting more comfortable with stuff, but this one problem is making me batty.

A newspaper advertises 5 different movies, 2 plays, and 3 baseball games for the weekend. If a couple selects 3 activities, find the probability that one of each will be selected.

They dont want to know all the different combinations that can be had (which I am now good at) they want the probability of each but then what, multiply that together?

5/30 * 2/30 *3/30 no that doesnt work. what do I do? what is the formula for this. Im looking thru the book and cant find one explanation. BAH!

D'Blogala

site for amazing art journal love.
this chick knows way more than I do about journaling.
CHECK HER OUT

Boo Bots

Now I understand why people dont put their email addy's on their blog.
Ive taken mine down.
I sure hope the bots stop soon. is there anything I can do?

Fishboy and I are publishing our own fairytale!
How amazing is that?
Im sO very excited.

more about it later. Ill scan in some sketches Ive had. Ive wanted to do this for yEars but it was so overwhelming to do alone. His dreaminess will be absolutely perfect.

yay!!!

Art Playshop with Suzi Blu: MANDALA



You can buy a beautiful purple bracelet from Arlan here


I'm excited that I can make longer videos now, I wasnt sure how big blip.tv would let the file size go, look its over 4 minutes! I will keep this in mind next time and make it even longer. I wont feel so harried when making it anymore either YAY!

Also - I would like to fill the borders of these two journal pages with the internet love goddesses that I've met. If you'd like I would lOve if youd send me a pic of you to my email and then Ill print it out and glue it in. Like a record of our experience here.

and also...look how the white wall looks behind me. not so great. web tv doesnt like white walls Im going to have to change that next time.

suziblu@gmail.com

I cant see my video although its there...can you see it?
I think this is the link

Right now video is 150 MB and doesnt have music yet. Im going to finish it and make it a full perfect video and see if blip.tv will upload the larger file size. If so happy happy I will make longer vids from now on and make a shorter one for YT.

But right now I have to go to math.

Be back this afternoon. If blip works I will have the longer video up here pretty soon, and then cut it back for one for YT. It sucks bcz I have so much to say I hate cutting things out! I like to talk and stuff needs explaining.

be back later =^_^=

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Late late late

Yes yes yes I know.
Its all shot though!
Im editing now, and doing statistics inbetween.
Tomorrow babies!
Tomorrow there will be video.
clear video with the new blip.tv.

ok
promise princess ballerina swear
XXX OOO
suzi blu

so what do you think?

At current my dvd burner doesnt work and all around my laptop is on the rag (yes I know we are supposed to love our moon cycles, but periods for me are worst than lonely saturday nights) so I can do nothing until student loan money comes thru...few weeks....

but so when it worked I burned a copy of my video to sell along with that weeks painting. I only have time for 1 video a week so I want to do the art playshops instead right now but so, maybe I should have the videos available for sale? very cheaply. Like 5.00 and have them extended in length? I can put more talking on a dvd since I dont have to worry about file size, what do you think?

Or I can also do that plus put a few episodes all on one dvd HMMMMM....that is something to think about. I have no patience. cmon loan money!

Ok time to make a video.
i just made a fabulous taco salad.

OMG GOD LOOK


I nEEd Pullip dolls!

Any Math Lovers out there?

I am stumped on this problem:

The probability that a student owns a car is .66, and the probability that a student owns a computer is .72. If the probability that a student owns both is .48, what is the probability that a given student owns neither a car nor a computer?



BAH!

Sunday

reach1

Yay the weekend is over. I survived it by painting all day. I now have carpel tunnel but its a good pain. Can you see I spelled yOUre wrong? ha. I have to fix that. I am not sad today. Its just a tired/saturday night thing. Its good though, it shows me the areas in my life that need work. where I feel empty is where I need to devote some attention. A girl cant be an island alone! You can appreciate life all you want but you need friends to share it with I dont care how enlightened you are. and its true, I dont have any chicks in my real life. I know some dudes, but its not nearly the same. and as much as the dudes dont understand. I am girls kind of girl. and its been a long time since I had a real best friend. long long. long long time. and why should I be without that? i dont care about marriages and baby showers and buying a bigger SUV which, unfortunatley, is what the women talk about that I have met. so I just dont try.

I will just keep doing what Im doing and have faith that opportunities will appear. Perhaps if I get to mOve out of this tiny tiny cloistered apartment and onto a FARM oh my mood would lift. I know good things will come. I will keep my heart open to their possibility.

making yams and carrots. i have no idea how to cook. ha.

mood swing

Oh its saturday.
you know how I feel about the weekends.
:(
Its funny right how everything is a blur and you are so busy you cant breathe and then all of a sudden.....it all stops.....and you still have a lot to do but you dont do it cause YOU JUST CANT LOOK AT ONE MORE MATH PROBLEM...and the cars drive by and you have the red light in the bulb and you just sit and wait to get tired enough to sleep.

a lot is going on, yes. I am selling paintings yes, oh but I sure can feel sorry for myself cant I. Its an easy trap to fall into when Im tired. and.
so no I dont know a lot of people in fact I dont know many really in life, isnt that ridiculous? that a person can be so busy she doesnt meet anyone. ever? crazy.
and normally its fine but eh...I do wish I had a gf to watch bad movies with.

patience. I know. I am grateful I have my lovely art friends here. thank god for that. or Id be half in a bottle of xanex by now : ) No, no, I have been sober for...May 5 was a year, so like a year and a half. I dont escape anymore. Just tea and art supplies and the occasional indie flick.

its just when its quiet like this I feel so very far away.
do you feel like that too?

I always think everyone has a cooler life than me. that I am behind somehow. that even though I do all of this creative stuff, ahhh...so much is missing from my life. It is balance, I know, something I am not good at.

It is 8 pm and I cannot edit anymore! Video will be up tomorrow afternoon after my math class. Here is a little picture to get you going and wondering and dreaming of me tonight <3

Lookee

Suziblutube bumperstickers!
try refreshing your screen if the bumpersticker logo looks small. an older picture keeps showing up for some reason but when you f5 it the new one shows.

I will put up prints of paintings here shortly.

Video up tomorrow, wednesday, around 9 pm. Are you ready for the love. Materials? Well, it is collage but of course, you can add any elements. I show the basic idea and then we all take it from there. I will use a bit of paint as usual. Im also going to do it out of a watercolor notebook cause my moleskin journal is at the end and is also very small. Its time for suzi to buy a bigger journal!

Oh babies....someone made me very sad tonight, and I got very mad, and Im in a pissy mood. I have to breathe and remember, all is well. and I learned a valuable lesson for next time right?

Pink love coming coming sooooon. and possibley longer video??? downloading a new codex so we shall seeeeee.

are ya bubbling with love yet? blow some my way =^_^=

Sunday Paintings

This is what happens when I get a little bit of attention. Now youre just enCourAging me. Ridiculous will ensue. Dont say you havent been warned.

Proof of Life

I am here I swear! 4 new paintings will be up on sunday and that will be the new schedule. I need to have some kind of order because with everything Im doing....its chaotic! Sweet little shabby folk art coming your way very shortly! 2 more days! Look for the first one at noon.

Sunday I am going to film a Civil War reinactment. it has absolutely nothing to do with next weeks lesson. that would probably be funny right...art journaling, then all of a sudden cannons and red coats falling to the ground. I live in the area where Washington's troops successfully killed the Hessians. (sp? eh who cares) so its a big deal round these parts. I think it will be interesting.

Be Kind To Yourself

Post your journal pics in the Journal Discussion Area

I'm thinking the video will be done around 9:00 rather than 8:00 since its 7:15 and Im still editing. Things always take longer than we plan them isnt that true? why why why is that?

It shall be finished tonight though!
Get your crayolas ready!

The Mr. WInkle Reality Show Episode 1 ; The Patient

Monday Art Love ^_^

Dear Fabulous Diving Journaling Goddess Ballerina Princesses, and fish boy - ( its not like boys are not allowed, its like Maya Angelou says to men when they ask her why her poems arent about men, "Honey," she says, "You gotta write your own poems." )

Journal Assignment 5
I don't know about you, but I need some art healing love.
What I would like you to do do from now until WEDNESDAY evening is this:
1)Right a letter to me and tell me who you are. Not just name and hair color but who you are when your make up comes off. All the things you DO, your talants, your smile, the body parts you love best. I want good things. This is not a letter of faults but I want to know why you are lovable YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY YOU ARE LOVABLE. Pretend I am blind and cannot see you for myself. and tell me things no one can see. Your hopes and dreams. and not lists of reasons why you cant do them. NOTHING NEGATIVE GOES INTO THIS LETTER.
2) Staple this letter, even if its long, into your journal somewhere. Doesnt matter where. This is especially good to build up pages that you may not love or seem sparse. Staple it though that it can be opened up and read easily so dont staple it closed.
Part Two of this assignment will come in a VIDEO on
Wednesday 8pm EST
wEdnesdAys will be the new video day because it makes my schedule easier and allows for exercises like this that come in two parts.
Materials for Wednesdays Class:
crayons


Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's sizeBut when I start to tell them,They think I'm telling lies.I say,It's in the reach of my armsThe span of my hips,The stride of my step,The curl of my lips.I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me.I walk into a roomJust as cool as you please,And to a man,The fellows stand orFall down on their knees.Then they swarm around me,A hive of honey bees.I say,It's the fire in my eyes,And the flash of my teeth,The swing in my waist,And the joy in my feet.I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me.Men themselves have wonderedWhat they see in me.They try so muchBut they can't touchMy inner mystery.When I try to show themThey say they still can't see.I say,It's in the arch of my back,The sun of my smile,The ride of my breasts,The grace of my style.I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me.Now you understandJust why my head's not bowed.I don't shout or jump aboutOr have to talk real loud.When you see me passingIt ought to make you proud.I say,It's in the click of my heels,The bend of my hair,the palm of my hand,The need of my care,'Cause I'm a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That's me. Maya Angelou

A New Day

Its quite impressive how Im begining to feel all this warm love from women I have not met (yet). I am absolutely convinced we have something here. So many of us feel a void that all of us can be there for each other to fill. Like a little tribe of wild women (and fishboy too, of course).

Posts are removed to protect the innocent, although they do not own a computer nor does anyone they know have any clue about what I do. All is safe. Still, not all words should be left to linger on their own. Feelings are transient. Especially for me. My lesson will be boundaries.

I want so much and you know, Im going to believe it is going to happen. I want a space. A retreat. Women's circles and drums and art and love and tea and beautiful indian rugs to lay down onto when it all gets to be too much. I want a victorian house where everyroom is a different art class or an old farmhouse or HELL a mobile home with 2 pink plastic flamingoes by the front door. I want a place where you all can come to. A big giant revolving women's retreat of love and art YAY!

I have to write a paper and tonight post a new painting. I must make a frame for it. Then buy underwear. But I will be back.

oops


Um, so...uh....I got a ..... 65 on my math test. I got a D. yup. First D I've had since 11th grade when I had two gyms and stayed out 3 periods for lunch. Except for 2 questions where I did not know what I was doing, the rest were calculator errors. which is inexcusable. Pressing numbers quickly and not double checking my answers. Many, many, errors like that. I guess I was so nervous I didn't notice. i have time to make this up, its just one of several tests. But still it was like.......when I get a bad grade or get in trouble in some way, I often feel like I am bad in some way. That the badness rubs off onto me and I am then only worth a D. I dont know what that is. All my life I have internalized the consequences of my behavior. If people gave me praise then I was worth goodness....if they put me down...then I was down on the ground.
Its a struggle to stay balanced in the face of our behavior, and to other's reactions toward us. We cannot be blown apart by every wind. YOU are not the sum of your actions. YOU are not WHAT YOU DO. Although when we do well we want to feel like what we do is who we are, but its not. Like wearing clothes, good deeds, bad deeds, they are actions. Who we are underneath all of that has nothing to do with how we behave. We are always good. There is no sin or 65% D grade to tear away at our authentic selves. We are still as innocent as when we were babies. we are. sometimes though, we forget that. Thats all it is.
So today I remember who I am and love myself even though I get scared and rush through math tests. The world wont crash if I try my hardest and fail at this class. I dont think Ill fail. I will slow down and be better prepared next time. There is always a next time.
NEW VIDEO TOMORROW. There is a wonderful girl who has a journal site and I wanted to help her out, so we have another assignment video tomorrow (friday).
Ok, I must do homework.
Have a great night,
Suze

Get Your Journal On

Join the community and post your journal pages - or just meet other students in the class at:

Brr is it cold in here? Better take off this WET BLANKET

a wet blanket it a person who pees on your parade. pee-pee blankets I call them. They say, You aren't going to leave the nose that way are you?" and "You need to shade more by the cheek. "I am not talking about an art teacher giving instruction to a student who is ernestly trying to understand portraits, but 'friends' back when I first started drawing. happy I was with just rolling graphite around paper I didn't ask or want advice! But there it was - with the message:
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE MAKING ART? if you are just starting out in art you might experience pee-pee blankets in your life. People who do not allow themselves to create therefore dont want you to either. so down the pee-pee will come on your journal, your portrait,
whatever fun and free things you are doing. But keep this in mind: they are scared. Instead of getting mad have compassion and be an example they can look to. Someone convinced them
when they were young and small that making art was only for special people. Great masters like Rembrant and Michaelangelo. Not for little them. Or little you! with your crayons and curls!
Your making art confronts their fear and they will tell you "This isnt REAL art you are doing by the way." but you will let it bother you none, right? instead, you will think of me, and my messy art room shelves, and the laundry that needs to be done, and my lack of real furniture or a husband and a job. AND YET
oh and yet,
i play and create and it is wonderful.
you will make art
and this is your statement affirmation:
DONT PEE PEE ON ME MAN!
and then make a face : P
and say "La la la"
and go about your art.
Assignmet 4 coming tomorrow morning.
suplies needed:
cheapie acrylic paints
colored pencils
OR
anything you want!
