The Sky Was Sexy.


My camera could not capture all the yellow. It was amazing. :)

Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa

Last night I downloaded this game called Bio Miracle Bokutte for the Wii Virtual Console & I have been getting really into it!! Its just so strange out of perspective to most American gamers. Who knows why its called Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa. What does Upa mean?? Yikes!! I know U.P.A. stands for United Productions of America, that was an animation studio from the 1940's through the 1970s.

Here is my lost in translation logic about game title Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa. Ok... Upa is a baby / bokutte that is an biological miracle. Yeah that' pretty much it, no more no less. :) Personally I like the translated title. If it were ever ported to the American NES in late 80's it would have most likely been titled somthing cruddy like. Cool Baby in Magical World. Yeah... nothing speacial.

Maybe Upa is a miracle because he/she never poops.

In the game your a baby and you have a rattle / air pump... that blows up enemies when You press B & the A button is to jump. The worlds are of mostly all made of cake or vegetables. Their are underwater cavern sort of levels as well. Watch the Youtube video I placed above to get an idea of the game play.

Just to let you know if you wondering. This game was made by Konomi & was never released in America, due to the uncool factor, involved a baby as the main character, just stinks! Now If you ask me, I think its a cool game. I played this game for almost 2 hours & was entertained. Now if you ask me what I think of this game in a week I might say something different, like this game blew my mind!!!

Haha, So over all... I love it!! Download Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa... NOW!! It will save you from hours of looking out the window.... ALONE!!

Here is a link to the wikipedia site about this game: Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa!

Have Fun!

PS: I must add that, who the fuck does not want to be a baby again? Heck yes I do & this game opens that opportunity!! Duh!

New Book to Draw In... Yup!

I started drawing today. I drew a few other drawings that I will post at a later date, but for now the cover is what I want to share!!

I would like to Draw... More, More & More!!

Air conditioning is quite a luxury isn’t it? I would say so… yes, but here in the house I live we don’t really use air conditioning. We just seem to put up with the 90 degree temperature’s & yes its hot but it cools down at night & over all I’m not really bothered with it. It might be hot & it can be sticky & sweaty & quite gross, but again I am not really bothered by those things. I get on fine really in all this heat & everything gets done around here. Its just fucking hot…& its really no matter at all & as I said before, I am quite fine with it & to tell you the truth I do look forward to coming home everyday from work & sit and sleep in all this fucking heat. :)

Yeah....

In other news I have been quite happy in the way my life’s been going recently. I don’t really have any thing to worry about for the most part other then bills & bills are shit any way, so I all I care about really is making art & putting on the internet, in one form or another. I have been really wanting to get back into drawing a lot more. I use to draw constantly as a child and to compare those drawings to my drawings of today are quite meek in comparison. Even my drawings just after high school were quite out of this world. Sure yes I post drawing up on this blog & they are good, but they are just not at the level I would like to see them. So what I am getting at is.. I need more practice!!! I want to dedicate afternoons to just drawing & nothing more so I can just grow as an artist.

I don’t really know why I shied away from drawing for so long, but I remember coming to a time just after I got out of college & for some reason the idea of going after a career in animation was just seemed useless at the time. Oh yes I remember now… I wanted to do traditional animation, like how the cartoons of the 1920 and 1930s & at the college I went to all that was offered at the time was 3-D animation. The 3-D animation classes were all fine & I did well in the classes, but it was not what I wanted to do at heart. So after I graduated & went off to work for a life sucking corporate hunk of junk, that I would never recommend any one to associate with.

So if your thinking I'm disappointed with the direction I went... your wrong. I did the right thing for me at the time & I am proud I went in a corporate direction & for the last 10 years, I have made a great deal of good things happen & as for right now I will stop typing about this subject and save the results for a future post.

Ok... so yes I want to start drawing more often & I will be post that development here in good time as well as I want to start posting more blocks of text for folks to read, much like this text that I am just now wrapping up.

Additionally I would like to add a link to a block of text that Albert Einstein wrote.

Thank for Reading:

Smile By The Orchid Pool [Original Song]

I recorded this song on a mobile tape recorder August 14th 2004 at Tasty World. Athens Georgia. The Song was written by Tony Paglia & he is playing piano on this recording. Kimberly Paglia is on Trumpet. Ryan Bousquet is playing drums. Javier Moralis is playing Sax.

We were playing a pretty good amount of shows around this time & I have quite a bit of recordings, that I think deserve posting, both by The Orchid Pool & Bellhouse. So keep a look out for more posts like this one!! :)

Admiral R's!

Hey this video was inspired from a collection of records that Brian Wilson did with some friends around the time when he was recording Smile back in the late 60's. The collection is out & on the internet under the name of... "Psychedelic Sounds Collector's Boot" A good deal of the recordings are of Van Dike Parks and Brian Wilson and others, doing short little skits & vocal rhythmic performances much like my Admiral R recording. If any of you love the Beach Boys as much as I do, this is a must hear for the ears!!! :)

Sloop John B. [ Cover Version 2 } By: Eshniner Forest.

I made everything louder on this version as well as add a better, live drum track that is much louder then the digital drums I had on it before. The vocals could be slightly louder but other then that, its alright to hear. I think it sounds fun overall & I'm pretty happy with the results. Just to let you guys in on what I'm doing... well I'm working on another secret cover album of songs, other wise known as Crispy Toast 2. :)

Kinda Spooky!! Ah!

Hello: I found this drawing.

Happy Fathers Day... DAD!!!

Me and my father went out to the Double Bubble Museum in Madison Georgia a few weeks ago.

Happy Dad Dad across the globe!!

Love like the sun. By Eshniner Forest. [ Original Song ]


I once thought the sun was like a big hot ball of love. So I wrote a song about it. This song is the result of those thoughts. Thank You!

White Fuzzy Bugs In My Trees.

I filmed this yesterday in the front yard. I first found that the entire front yard was covered in the white fur strands. Then after looking at a leaf closely I found that it was a ball of fuzzy white bugs crawling all over each other. Quite strange. I want to understand more about them. They seem to be a kind of parasite, that are feeding off the trees leaves. After a period of time the the leave that these bug are living, become black and dead as if they are eating all that was good from the leaf. The leaves then fall to the ground and the insects then for a brief time eat the grass and make the ground dark in patches. I'm not sure if the fuzzy white stuff or the dark patches are a waist product of these bugs, but I must say we have an active science experiment in the front yard, that will entertain me for many weeks to come. :)

2012: The Year The Internet Ends

I have been watching these guys for a while now on Youtube. They have an interesting story & are from Belgium. This video says it all. The modern Internet as of today is all going to change in the coming years. Site's like my own that just want to communicate my simple art projects, will not get be seen or shared unless you pay a higher price for your Internet provider. You can already see these sort of changes happening on the present day internet. Things are just moving in a more Corporate Controlled direction over all & its pretty disapointing.

Further more these guys are cool & a powerful force on Youtube. They have a gigantic following as well a lot of haters as well that goes with the territory. Athenewins is his channel & you might think it looks like a porn site, but its all a cover up to get your attention. So check it out!!
