GOT DAMMIT?

Got Dammit?
Got Dammit?

Greetings. There’s been a little work on my banner ad, as well as the site. I updated the image above to include my site name and spiffed-up this page. I was in the mood to code.

Here’s the story behind the banner: one night, I said “God dammit” with a drawl, and it came out “got dammit.” Got Dammit? With a little bit of sleuthing, I found images of the Sistine Chapel and worked on them until I finished my vision. I love instant artistic gratification.

Ongoing Goings-On

For those of you who may be following my work on the Gutterhaunt site and wondering to yourself “Why the hell hasn’t he updated it?”, I assure you I’m still working on it. Like I said, I’m slow on the coding, the images, the updating, but I am still working on it. Sounds like an empty promise, doesn’t it?

Most of my time is sucked up by my job, my free time is spent taking care of a lot of business and pleasure, and by the time I do finally get free time, I’m drained. Sounds like an excuse. I know.

Walk a mile in my Skechers.

I have a dream…

I’m still seeking web hosts with space to rent. I have a few choices, and a set of favorable domain names, but money for setup I do not have. That’s what I get for having gone to a private college for too long, trying to pay for my own car, paying for the privelege of being online, and living the lifestyle to which I have become accustomed. However, I can’t wait to get set up. Wanna make a donation? Let’s talk!

Until later-
Shawn

Ah, the juicy juxtaposition. My best creation yet. Disturbing.

Something struck me earlier this evening. Said “God dammit” with a drawl, and it came out “got dammit.” Got Dammit? After two hours of finding images of the Sistine Chapel, cropping them, pasting them together, and hammering out the final image, it’s done. I like it.

Gutterhaunt‘s site is coming along well. I’ve finally got an idea of where everything should go and the general feel of it all pretty much set in stone. I’m setting a lot of stuff, but I’m a little slow on uploading them. I prefer to just wait until things are ready. I’m a perfectionist – sue me. :)

I’m desperately seeking out web hosts with space to rent. I have a few choice hosts, and a set of favorable domain names so far. I’m now saving up for the big setup expenditure. I estimate it’ll take between $150 to $200 to get set up. I can’t wait. Wanna make a donation? Let’s talk!

For those of you who remember The Farm in its past glory, I’m not sure if I want to bring that back. As fun as it was, and as much time as I put in it, I don’t know if I want to make much ado about nothing. Not that your work was nothing, nor mine; I think I’ll not have much of that “community” stuff and have more “me” stuff. This is my 3 megs of webspace, and I would like to make it about me. Email me with comments.
