    Talking So what else are you good at?

    (I'm bored, sue me)


    We are all artists here. Some of us better then others, with professionals and enthusiasts making up everyone who posts. But i wonder... what other talents do you posses?

    Being an artist gives us a leg up with a lot of other walks in life which we can apply to almost anything; be it music, or all the way over to automotive repair.

    So spill your guts, brag a little. What are you talented at besides art?

    For myself:
    -Creative writing
    -Drumming
    -Billiards
    -Snow boarding
    -Breaking down complex social problems that my friends need help with.
    -Philosophy
    -management
    -and lastly.. video games

    probably a lot more too if i think hard enough.

    Martial Arts, been doing it for 15 years since I was 8 everything from Kendo to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to Aikido to Muay Thai.

    Also, sleeping, I could sleep during a humping session and wake up and ask "are we done yet?".

    HAH! Surprised the girl puts up with it.


    Just opposite for me though, if a girl want to interrupt me drawing.. it can only be for sex.

    I'm good at:
    -pissing people off
    -being a social ogre

    other interests:
    -play the piano
    -origami
    -camping
    -leatherworking, metalworking and blacksmithing. This is something that I haven't started yet but its on my "to-do" list as something I really really want to start.

    there is more, but I'm lazy right now.

    I have a vast wealth of utterly useless knowledge about obscure subjects that know one cares about including me. That and the ability to write my name in the snow with my urine WITHOUT the use of my hands to aim.

    a. are you a girl? Because then I would be really impressed.

    b. if not, how do you account for the lag time between hip twist, appendage lag and trajectory of urine? And also, do you take into account the word:bladder fullness ratio?

    Thank for answering.

    Having a full bladder helps. You can comfortably apply more force and get a straighter shot. Also, I have to write in cursive because the angular print letters are damn near impossible unless you want to mess up your shoes. As for lag, really only practice can help you with that. Practice often and when your bladder is empty, you can practice by squeezing one of those bicycle water bottles between your legs. You may want to try with a garden hose but a hose can't successfully emulate proper flow volume and force.

    Awesome...but how is the line quality? I tend to get really sketchy feathered lines and it looks really gnubish. Also, have you dabbled with cross hatching?

    I tried once but was arrested for god knows what - between you and me, I think its because I'm Asian.

    I have really good clotting time.
    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed, The world in arms is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross."

    ...I have a sketchbook?

    im pretty dece at whatever I do, as long as it involves computers in some way.
    Im only really really good at three things:

    1) playing with my baby:
    So what else are you good at?

    2) pwning bitches
    mainly at super smash bros (the first one) , i think the picture broke.
    So what else are you good at?

    3) I could show you a picture of it, but it would probably get me kicked out of CA, or possibly even arrested. think about it.


    oh, while i was looking for the pic of my Warlock, i uncovered some pictures of my final project for my FormZ class. I was pretty dece at modeling, methinks.

    i've been playing piano for over 13 years and consider myself quite good at it.
    i have (imho) a very good sense of rythm. i annoy the hell outta my sisters by drumming around on every surface in reach.
    better at listening than talking.
    very good at whining and sarcasm(sometimes).

    Memorizing useless trivia from movies, books, radio, conversations, or anywhere else. Then dragging them up later and berating people for not knowing what I'm talking about.

    Being lazy.
