Reality winners

One is a Photoshop and the other pencil on paper.

Wow, these are great, esp the pencil drawing.
Actual reality winners.

The pencil of Jennifer Lawrence is a master level work of art. The only way you can really judge that it's a pencil rendering is to zoom in close and see the pencil marks themselves. Beyond that, it is nearly indistinguishable from the real thing. Some daresay may say that it is actually a better interpretation of her beauty than the real subject.

I think that's a real avocado.

Being colorblind I had no idea that the top photo was supposed to be an avocado. I thought it was a police badge or something.

The lower picture - my son does those, too, only better. Seriously.

Didn't know you were colorblind, Sixty. I picked up a book @ the help yourself library stand in our townhouse community yesterday. It's called The Legend's Club written by John Feinstein. The book is about Smith, Valvano and Coach K. One reason I picked it up was to become more familiar w/ Tobacco Road b-ball before I go to Tobacco Road. I'm only ~50 pages into in but I like it so far.

A woman at market Saturday was talking about that book. She was a State grad, and so she was a huge Valvano fan. I have a lot of stories about basketball in this area, if you haven't experienced it first hand you cannot imagine the fervor.

I have had the good fortune to attend 4 games at Cameron Indoor, and that is like going to mecca, only with more crazies. I would like to be able to offer you tickets to a game there, but fuhgetaboudit - they are very hard to come by.

And for the record, John Feinstein is an unmitigated, unrepentant, irredeemable scum sucking son of a whore. He never apologized for proclaiming the Duke lacrosse players guilty, even after they were exonerated by the rat bastard AG. I think he might be the father of Crystal Gail Mangum's latest progeny.
