I don't know what to put here so I'm gunna write some quotes that made me chuckle =)

* Brain: "Listen, you're about to have sex with a goat, I'm going now" - Robin Williams

* "I'm a little teapot short and stout, here is my handle and here is my.. Oh bugger I'm a sugar bowl!" - Stephan Fry

* "Save your breathe mate; you'll need it to blow up your girlfriend!" - Russell Howard

* "How many fingers? That's right, two, fuck off" - Hugh Dennis

* "Have you got a pen?" "Yeah" "Then get back in it love" - Justin Edwards
Interests
  • Reading: Blue World - Dennis H Bloor
So, My friend has written a book!

It's a Sci-Fi book based around a painting he did back in his youth of a Blue World (hence the title). The painting itself is pretty damn good - its a shame I can't upload a picture with this entry - and then he wrote an entire book around it.. his mind amazes me.. anyways here's the blurb:

"Escaping from the Tekkan Empire, Kaellan and his band of rebels find themselves on a strange blue planet in the middle of a struggle for power.
The peoples who survive on this planet do so because of a symbiotic relationship with the Virosa, giant floating mushrooms, which during the cool of the evening float closer to the surface where they will drop millions of spores on warm living flesh; flesh that then becomes a host for new Virosa. To complete the circle of life in the strange relationship, each tower has an elite team of pilots who fly solid fuel powered single man flying machines. Their task is to drop the mushrooms into the salt lake where they disintegrate to enrich the nutrients, which then feeds the life within it. The people then live by what can be caught from the lake (including algae used in the production of fuel) and what can be grown in their giant arboretums.
Once in possession of the Agaric Baramass Lorr's lust for power becomes evident as does his lust for Rachel, the daughter of Septimus.
Baramass, who has now proclaimed himself president for life, has everyone he considers a threat arrested and sent out to face the Virosa, apart from Kentath (Rachel's husband) who he tries to use as collateral in his attempt to make Rachel his consort by offering to keep him alive if she agrees to his proposals."

If anyone is interested it's on Amazon, pretty cheap. It's a good read! =)

Hey Jess, after all that time I finally got round to properly using Deviant, and this is the new, and slightly better account.

Hope things are going well and such! :D

Hi Jess! My name is Marta, I'd say I've been
seeing your gallery and I think you're a great artist. I think
everyone should see your drawings to see how good you are!
