Carpe Inkblot

Someone once pointed out to me that (and I am paraphrasing here) they visited the blog less because they felt I was all over the place, and they just wanted to look at an inkblot for a little bit.  I certainly won't deny the "all over the place" part.  And I did try keeping things on certain days.  Let me tell you my thought process.  I started with

-Many lines of pointless text deleted.-

Instead I will just paste in this line from an email:

It's like a little window in to someone's imagination when you have more than one (inkblot interpretation) for that person.

If I were to really hammer down a goal for this blog, it would be for it to become a haven of temporary distraction. Get in to work a little groggy?  Miss the bus?  Forget your lunch?
Late for school?  The probation officer's corpse is starting to smell?
Then perhaps a quick look in to the window of someone else's imagination can dislodge your focus on the mundane long enough for you to get in to a different mindset.  I know, pretty ambitious, right?

I figure that I should have an Inkblot Of The Day for Monday through Friday, regardless of what else I am spewing on about that day, whether it is a video, or a request for captions (thanks for the last batch) or whatever.

I figure if I do them more, I will get more repeat interpretations.  
I will become a collector of imaginations.

Yes. That is what I am going to do.
I apologize for this massive dose of irony in leaving you with no new inkblots today, but at least there is this video that someone made with tons of their extraordinary tribal-esq inkblots in 2008:

Hensler style you say?  I guess I am just going to have to check that out.

I still need help with the Redemption of Colin B!


  1. I don't really have a problem with the all over the place-ness, but I guess I can really see how others would.

  2. Interesting read. It is abit all over the place but I enjoy the organized chaos so to speak.

  3. Seems like a good goal for the blog to me.

  4. Oh god what kind of music is that

    also i don't think anyone wants to rate me


  5. I love the inkblot. I saw a view looking down at some witches dancing in a circle and stirring up magic. I think you're too brilliant for some folks, that's what I think.

  6. this is still a great blog, nonetheless. :)

  7. I saw a pinguin-face in the midle...

  8. i love watching your inkblots stoned :D
