Digital Eccentricities

My little corner of the Tumblrverse, where quirk is king.

Who am I? Probably too old to have a blog on Tumblr, that's who I am. But mostly, I watch a lot of anime. A LOT of anime. And for some ungodly reason, I felt like setting something up to blog about it on here.

Here you'll find reblogs and random musings of anything and everything that strikes my fancy; mostly anime and weird Japanese stuff, but science, odd technology and the weirdness of internet culture take close seconds.

(Or thirds, or fourths, or wherever.)

Yusuke Asai Paints Sprawling Earth Art Murals From Texan Soil

at Rice Gallery

Japanese artist Yusuke Asai just unveiled his latest immersive mud art masterpiece right in the heart of Texas. Like Asai’s other artworks, his new sprawling Yamatane installation in Houston’s Rice Gallery is made from locally-sourced soil mixed in with other natural materials. His versatility with the medium is astounding—although Asai started with just ten pigments, he managed to create no less than 27 different shades in his mural.

So yeah, I’ve been busy.  

Blogging has kind of fallen by the wayside, as has anything even remotely non-work related - right now I get a day or two off every few weeks, so my time has been limited, to say the least.  

It has its perks, though.  A new office, new clientele, and new learning experiences every day, which, to me, only sweetens the paycheck.  

I’m not really a believer in concepts like “dream jobs” or “the perfect job.”  To me, whatever’s there is largely defined by what you make of it yourself.  

I think there are a lot of people out there that are so focused on finding a way to do what they love for pay that they never get a chance to love what they do for pay, if that makes any sense.  Destination and journey and whatnot.  

That said, a decent paycheck never hurt anybody, either, so there’s that. 

I’ll never get rich with what I’m doing, or be able to afford ALL the things, or come away at the end of each day totally satisfied with everything I’ve done over the course of the last nine hours (or ten, or twelve, or fourteen…).  

But maybe I can keep myself going for a decent while, find a good place in the world for myself that helps other people out, and enjoy what comes along the way.  

That’s as much as anyone can ask for, really.  

Also, anime.  Legitimately purchased and licensed anime.  

Ah, that’s a lovely feeling.
