    For anyone interested in illustration stuff, James Gurney just posted a video of Dean Cornwell painting an illustration. Of course, with all the Gnomon and Massive Black DVDs available now it's comparatively pretty scant on instruction, but it's still pretty interesting to see an illustrator at the top of his game in the 40's at work.

    MT, if it's not too late, please get a second AND a third opinion on those supposed eighteen cavities.

    Unless all teeth in your mouth are giving you pain every time you chew or drink cold water, eighteen sounds sketchy, and needs to be checked out.

    I have fillings myself, and I'm not scared of the dentist, but I've heard multiple stories from friends (and dental professionals) about not-so-smart dentists recommending way too many fillings, possibly from a profit motive. And I myself have a crown on a tooth because an incompetent dentist put in an unnecessary filling, and did it badly. The "unnecessary" isn't my judgment, it came from two other dentists reviewing the x-rays after the fact. :evil:

    I've had times when three areas of my mouth screamed at me when I drank water, and my excellent current dentist recommended sealant (no cutting needed) on two teeth. Problem solved.

    I mean, I want you to get fillings if they're needed, but maybe you need only half that number, and sealant on a few more.

    Okay, I found my wisdom teeth. They're like five years old, but they're still in one piece. I also have a couple of other teeth, but one of them is broken. Let me know where to send them, MagicToaster.

    Also, Meow, thanks for the words! Ive had horrible experiences with Dentists. One put in a needle wrong and for a long time my mouth was crooked when pronounced certain words, but Im pretty sure shes not making this up.

    So, I havent been to the dentist in like 5 years...... turns out I have 18 cavities.....

    Just got six filled this morning. 744$. And not only that, but if it wasn't for this dentists appointment, I would have been in the sky with Bombardier.

    And it's not even my fault! I have teeth that are just super prone to decay. I am on high flouride toothpaste and shit now.

    I think half of my teeth are porcelain at this point. I had some bad cavities that parlayed into needing root canals because of inadequate flossing over the years. I've always had an unhealthy avoidances of the Dentist, as well. Now I live in San Francisco where there isn't sugar in anything, so I'm not really sure what the state of my teeth are.
    Mars... women are insane, but I wouldnt trade them for anything. What happened?

    I wouldn't trade them for anything either. If I weren't provided with experiences like this, than I'd have nothing to write about. My girlfriend and I have been separated for some time now, with intermittent attempts at working things out to varying degrees. Currently, she had made it clear she wanted to stay separated (for one reason or another) and I had made a miserable time of it trying to respect that and move past it myself.

    But then we ended up getting together last night and having a good time of it, so, fuck-me if I know. Right?

    I haven't been to the dentist in 8 or 9 years, last time I got told showing up
    every 3 years or so would be fine since I've never had any trouble except for the
    chunk of front-tooth that got knocked out by a metal pipe (swimming lesson, not gang
    violence), and then I kind of never bothered, probably should go soon before all
    my teeth fall out or I die.

    SMWN I'm pretty sure that's not an actual song. I just plugged it into finale (a program for writing sheet music) and it was gibberish, unless I put it in wrong.

    edit:

    especially considering there is no way of telling what type of note it is (quarter, half, whole, 8th, 16th etc) if they're all quarter notes, then there are at least 4 incomplete measures.

    Hey guys, my tablet pen is acting like a mouse for some reason. The solution online I found was to change my pen tablet properties, but I can't seem to find it anywhere on my computer!

    It might also be because Wacom drivers are notoriously shitty and like to just check out sometimes. Have you tried restarting or re-installing the drivers?

    Restarting my laptop works 99% of the time for me, which is a giant pain in the butt to have to do every time. I should fix that sometime. If a restart doesn't work for you, you might want to check and make sure the drivers are up to date (just have to go to the Wacom site and download the latest ones for your model).

    I would love to own a smart phone. The only one I have is a pay-as-you-go Razor.

    Apparently you're not allowed to get any sort of cell phone plan in Canada without a social security number, so i'd have to wait till I get landed status before I could do that.

    That could take up to four years. I wonder what my future phone can do by then?
