Dentist Dread

I had my dental appointment today, and went to see Dr. Tobias, D.D.S. He found my gum bleeding "curious," and seemed really intrigued by the whole thing. I felt incredibly bad – he had to clean up five years worth of muck and awfulness that is the inside of my mouth. He could tell I was nervous, and made it…

Justin Gets Things Rolling

I woke up early today, around 8 AM, and logged some hours in on fine tuning the rough interface for the radio station project (Warning: Requires the Flash plug-in). I got the basic mechanics working with blobs of color. The game is a "matching" game, where baby pictures of radio station DJ’s (that’s jocks, if you want to use the…

Rob’s Opening, Better Late Than Never

Elissa has been calling me the past few days, and we’ve played phone tag, trying to coordinate a time where we could both visit Rob’s gallery and see his work. Rob, along with his good friend Jake, share gallery space together. They both wrote up separate "Artist Statements", and I thought I’d enclose snippets from both: "I use simple tools…
