Going to use this as a prompt for a LIST.

This doesn't include every book I kept/bought for it's cover. Just the ones on my Goodreads read list. I have a ton of books in my closet that I haven't read yet, but have pretty covers. Like recently, I bought a book of Poe writings. It's purple with a raven. It's a 50's edition that was probably sold at a gas station or something, I love their covers.

  1. The Opium Clerk (2001) by Kunal Basu. Was in a box of free books. Was good, but I donated it. Pretty poppies.

  2. California Blue (1996) by David Klass. Stole from school in grade 7 or 8. Still have it out of nostalgia.

  3. Fudoki (2004) by Kij Johndon. Bought from library book sale. Fun story, still have it.

  4. Sugar Bush: & Other Stories (2006) by Jenn Farrell. Bought from library book sale and kept, because I really liked it. The design is so good and it's a small book that's about the size of my hand.

  5. The Roaring Girl (1997) by Greg Hollingshead. Bought from library book sale. I really likes the "Rose Cottage" story. Donated.

  6. Ojingogo (2009) by Matthew Forsythe. Was a library book, so I'm not sure if it counts. Anyway, it looked cute, so I signed it out. Took ten minutes to "read" (there are no words). Was cute.

  7. The Orpheus Obsession (2005, but my edition was from 2008) by Dakota Lane. Bought, probably from Value Village. Kind of like Girl by Blake Nelson, but I liked it better. I kept it long after I read it, because I liked Dakota Lanes' photos. Donated.

  8. Little Green Men (1999, my edition was from 2011) by Christopher Buckley. Who couldn't love that cover. Simple, but cute. The book was good, it was hard making the decision to donate it, but it ended up with my sister anyway. Don't remember where I got it from.

  9. Lost Girls (2001) by Andrew Pyper. I got this edition from VAC when a woman who worked there left a ton of books in the lunchroom that she didn't want anymore. Then I forgot I had it and got this edition from Value Village. So since I had two copies, I read the VAC edition and Mar read the VV one. She liked the book better than me, but I wan't to re-read it. I kept the VV edition, though both covers were lovely.

  10. Grimms' Fairy Tales (this 1973 edition) forget where I got it. Might donate it if I get a better one.

  11. The Girls (2000) by Amy Goldman Koss. Another one I stole in grade 7 or 8 and kept for nostalgia. I even did a book report on it.

  12. The Crocodile Bird (1994) by Ruth Rendall. This was another free one. I liked the book until a part near the end, but don't want to give spoilers. Didn't keep it.

  13. A Million Little Pieces (2003) and My Best Friend Leonard (2005) by James Frey. Yeah, I know I know. But who couldn't love these bright lovely covers. The blue one with a sprinkle covered hand. And the pink one with the ashtray. Both were from Value Village and I donated both years after I read them.

  14. The Gathering (2007) by Anne Enright. Another from VV. Was good, but I donated it.

  15. Fly on the Wall (2006, this edition, but paperback) by E. Lockheart. So cute! Library booksale. Still have it because the story was sweet. Gherkins.

  16. The Marriage Chest (1968) by Dorothy Eden. Goodreads doesn't have the edition I had. It was hardcover and the dust jacket had a hand underneath lace. It was a book that my sister was getting rid of without reading and that's probably for the best. It was kind of disappointing. Donated.

Art Exam

So yesterday was my art exam. She had us do a critique on The Vitruvian Man by Da Vinci. How am I supposed to do a good critique on the Vitruvian Man? I managed to write three small paragraphs. I did well on the rest of the exam, so hopefully it will be okay.

So far, I've finished every exam at 9:30, it's wierd. Then I have to sit there doing nothing for another hour.

Maybe I should call TaSha. Bleh.

I don't think I deserve this art award thing. I was going to go with TaSha, but they moved it from the 10th to the 16th, and I've had enough of TaSha. So I'm not going. Plus, I never got my invitation anyway.

Everything about the Beast disgusts me. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to throw up.

Subject change. I'm getting an award for most promising artist, I have no idea why. I don't think I deserve it. There is nothing special about my art, and the only reason I took the class is because my guidance counselor and I didn't know what else I could take. Oh well. I haven't won any sort of award since grade 5 maybe.

So, we've started figure drawing. Ms B had a boy named David be our model. I wonder if it has anything to do with the three Davids we studied (by Bernini, Raphael and Michaelangelo). The one by Michaelangelo is my favourite, he looks like he's chillin'. "I just killed a giant, what have you done with your life?"

Arts Fest

So I wents to Arts Fest for third period yesterday and today. Everyone did much better today, yesterday they were very awkward, but that's understandable.

So here's what happened (not in order, and I don't remember everyones names):
A girl named Cassandra sang "Beauty and the Beast" (Beauty and the Beast)
A another girl sang "Bubbly" by Colbie Caillat
A group of 3 girls and 3 boys performed "Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx
3 boys performed "YYZ" by Rush, was my favourite performance.
A girl sang "Way Back into Love" (Music and Lyrics)
A bouy named Adam sang "Let it Be" by the Beatles
One of the boys that did the Rush song, also performed "District Sleeps Alone Tonight, The" by Postal Service
A girl named Caitlyn sang "Beautiful Girls" by Sean Kingston. Even though I don't like this song, she was great.
A boy named Moe did stand up.
6 girls did a dance routine.
And a group of four boys (who called themselves the Flaming Yawn) sang a song called "Bus Stops"

Also their was a powerpoint (not pp actually, forget what it's called) of the visual art from last year.

Wow, I am hungry. Must eat. This is why I don't gain weight, I'm too lazy to go to the kitchen.

I got most of my homework done, still some Marketing stuff. It's due Tuesday, but I know if I don't finish most of it today, I'll procastinate and then not do it.

I'm very proud of my sketches. I started doing more sketches in the back of the sketchbook. The page turned out really "girly", because I began drawing dresses and shoes. I even attempted a string of pearls. I had "Iron Man" stuck in my head. So in big block letters I wrote "I AM IRON MAN".

Hmmm.

I found tutorials on the internet that help me more than my art teacher. I'm getting better at drawing eyes and mouths. Also noses, but only from a profile view.

Never thought I'd say that. Art was never something I was good at, but I enjoyed it.

But I hate this class, and the teacher. A mute button would be nice.

We're doing self portraits. Mine doesn't look so bad, but it doesn't look anything like me. Also, charcoal isn't the best medium for me. Then again, I doubt there are any.


Ugh, Cockroach is so fucking irritating. She talks out loud to herself, which is okay, but she never admits to it. She reapeats the same things over and over and over again to herself and others. She also needs a thesaurus. And apparently Paris Hilton was in the National Geographic, so now Cockroach is going crazy.

Veiled Vestal Virgin (1847) by Raffaelle Monti


You may recognize it from Pride & Prejudice (2005). Isn't it lovely?
angelicmobster8: a heart shaped candy saying a.m. inc. (Schmee)
As I promised, here is my picture free post. I also said I would talk about bunnies or Schmee...

I love Schmee! I love bunnies! There ya go.

Queen - Killer Queen

Friday I went to my sisters for the night, it was fun. I wont be able to do that this much this summer because of her work. Which sucks, because I love going there to get away from here. I hate feeling uneasy in my own home.

Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight

Finally saw A Hard Day's Night, and loved it. But it was on at midnight, and I can never stay awake on weekends for some reason. So I kept dozing off, which is annoying. "Are you a mod, or a rocker?" "Um, no. I'm a mocker." Can't choose a favourite line. That's like choosing a favourite song of theirs.

I watched Lady and the Tramp also. Oh, old memories. I used to think all of these Disney movies were from the nineties, but that's probably just because they were re-released or something. For example: Snow White (1937), Fantasia (1940), Oliver and Company (1988), Bambi (1942), etc. And Lady and the Tramp is from '55. It has to be one of my favourites. I actually cry at two parts: the dog pound and when Trusty gets ran over. Aw, Queenie was sniffing the screen whenever one of the characters barked. Ah! Also the art is beautiful. One of my favourite scenes is when Trusty is sniffing his way through the streets. I dunno, it's the texture, man...

Eep!

WARNING: The lovely piece by Luis Royo contains nudity. Just wanted to tell you, because I don't like whining unless it's my own. Ha, just kidding. I don't even like my own, but I can't stop myself from doing it.



STARRY NIGHT by Vincent Van Gogh

I've always loved that painting, but I also love the other paintings that are in the results.
