But instead I’m trying to put together a Visual Reference File on Modern art styles (post T-L and M) and it’s driving me mad because I’ve managed about three paragraphs all day. I swear I need Ritalin sometimes.
In response to my call for models feralmoggy (?) wants to know if the poses/ pictures will be tasteful.
Absolutely. I aspire to something like the gorgeous nudes of Domai.com (gorgeous, but nude, so NSFW). I’m an affiliate now, so if you click through and sign up, you’ll be helping me out as well.
So far I have only asked one person if she’d pose naked for me. As it was her idea I figured she deserved the right of first refusal. She used it, which is a shame.
Replying to my work rant from yesterday, Emily suggested that there are bike related tax breaks for employers/ employees. Personally, I didn’t believe this, but a little research finds that employers can get tax relief on bikes they supply to their workers provided the main use of the cycle is getting to work. They can also get relief on free breakfasts for workers on “Bike to Work” days. they also get exemption from Class 1a NICS(?) for bike parking. There’s an FAQ here.
Want the perfect library for any occasion? Get a personal book shopper. The article has a number of top ten book suggestions, so here goes-
Microserfs, Douglas Coupland
Out of Control, Kevin Kelly
The Tale of One Bad Rat, Bryan Talbot
Moby Dick, Herman Melville (Okay, I haven’t read this one. It’s on my list of 100 things to do.)
Overlord, Max Hastings
Stupid White Men, Michael Moore
The Dark Knight Returns, Frank Miller
Watchmen, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
Eight’ll have to do for now, I guess.
It’s time to challenge myself again, and pump up the Amazon referals whilst I’m at it. In the spirit of previous song-lyrics-as-post-titles weeks, it’s cultural-references-in-posts week, with links to the book/ album/ whatever at the end of the post. I’ve been doing it in about a quarter of my posts recently anyway, I just have to pump up the linking.
