Ceci n'est pas une personne.

Who knew The Beach Boys were so angsty? I heard this on the radio this morning:

I Just Wasn't Made For These Times
Irving Music, Inc. BMI
Brian Wilson/Tony Asher

I keep looking for a place to fit
Where I can speak my mind
I've been trying hard to find the people
That I won't leave behind

They say I got brains
But they ain't doing me no good
I wish they could

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong

Sometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)

I guess I just wasn't made for these times

Every time I get the inspiration
To go change things around
No one wants to help me look for places
Where new things might be found

Where can I turn when my fair weather friends cop out
What's it all about

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong

Sometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)

I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times


Doesn't it make you want to run out and start an emo Beach Boys cover band?!?!?!

The first set of pictures of my sister modelling for me. Are pages two through 4 here:

As usual, these are straight from the camera and unedited or filtered. I'll be doing the editing later, and share the results as usual.

I need to do 5 pictures for my final assignment, so I'm trying to recreate vintage posters. They ideas so far are:

  • Loose Lips Sink Ships
  • The argi-art you would see on the lables of fruit crates.
  • Car ad.
  • Absinth ad.
  • Rosie The Riveter.


The car idea is a bust, as thew car I was going to use is gone today. But I might do a sun dress ad with one of the spares from the agri-art pictures (all I have so far). The rest I will do tonight. The sun will be down, so I can have more control over the lighting in the "studio".

Okay... I got the rest of the pictures done. I'm going for an almost noir look, so the images are intentionally dark, but the color balance is off, but that can easily be fixed in photoshop. The first couple are for the "Loose Lips Sink Ships" poster, and most everything will be removed except the mouth area. The next few in the dress are for the absinth advertisement, where the back ground will be removed and she will be made to look like she is leaning against an absinth bottle. And the last few are for a "Rosie The Rivetor" (or is that "Riveter?) poster. Look at those muscles!

Anyway in the same ablum as befreo, but starting on page four and going to page 5. http://adam.ddns.sightworks.net/coppermine/thumbnails.php?album=465&page=4

Tomorrow I start the editing. For now, it's beddy-bye time.
