Matthew used to think love was as easy as 3.14159, but Linda was rapidly proving him wrong. He loved Linda, sure, just like he loved his dog Einstein, but he loved mathematics the most. Linda ...
let's play pretend
until the end,
whenever that will be.
we'll dress in gowns
and dance around
and jump into the sea.
we'll float and fly
straight through the sky
in our hot air balloon,
and then we'll race
to outer space
and steal ourselves the moon.
let's make believe
and never leave
our own fantasy land.
we'll sing love songs
now wouldn't that be grand?
and even though
inside we'll know
nothing is as it seems,
as long as we're
who needs reality?
sang my lyrics over wirrow/gwen's amazing song. um... i hope this isn't terrible. <3 be sure to check out metaphorest's song for these lyrics (resourced) - it's the cheerful version. this is the melancholy version...
my most ambitious REmix to date, to illustrate the breakup scene from A Mathematician's Approach to Love (http://hitrecord.org/records/185877 if the link doesn't work)... my goal was to make a realistic 3D composite image using 30+ image REsources. did i succeed?
for background info, please check out the story! (link above and in resources)
some of the stock photos i used were self-taken; if you can't find them in the REsources and would like me to upload them for further REmixes (i.e. the desk, the light, the math books), please let me know.
many thanks to all of the incredible artists/photographers whose work i used!
& if you are curious about the process, or where certain REsources appear in the image (it's hard to find some of them), feel free to ask away! : D
What does it mean to be rational?
Fact: Two rational numbers can never be adjacent, as you will always find an irrational number between them.
Proposition: Two rational people...
People are put into the ground when they die.
Seeds are put into the ground to be born again.
^ the tiny story I wrote earlier
I had this idea that when the heart stops beating, it is planted into the ground like a seed to bring forth more life even after death. Let's keep our loved ones alive, again by heart -- RECord, RECord, RECord. <3
"You're too complex," said Pi.
"Don't be irrational," said i.
"Come on guys, be positive!" said 22/7.
"Oh look," said i grumpily, "the voice of reason."
-- it rolls. Down, down, down, crushing the dead earth in its path until it finally settles at the bottom of the steep mountain.
i wish you all a very happy, safe, and healthy new year. may twenty ELEVEN bring you nothing but genuine smiles and happiness. <3
thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this community. i'm proud to say it has made me a significantly happier and more confident person. it is magical. WE are magical. i cannot say thank you enough, but here goes: THANK YOU, again, by heart.
p.s. apologies to the city of chicago for butchering your skyline...
this started out as a digital art challenge to myself, to expand the bridge to infinity... then it became a piece inspired by sfdetroiter's tiny story, "i keep walking into pictures."
dedicated to my favorite heartninja, the sneakiest, stealthiest of them all - miss metaphorest! hiiiiYAH! pow POW! kaaaaZAM! <3
i feel like this needs a story... for some reason when it makes me think of a post-apocalyptic world with only one human survivor... but maybe i'm crazy : D
an album cover for Burn On (Stereophonic) and a tribute to Dan <3 uploaded at 11:12 AM because I am kind of a ditz... :( featuring the teeny tiny silhouettes of Joe and Jared looking up at the sky on a starry night to see fiery flames reminiscent of Dan.

Sorry about the title... I figured "A Mathematical Counterargument to a Popular Tiny Story by RegularJOE and moonbug" wouldn't sound very exciting...
This was made purely for giggles, and also because this was one of the first tiny stories I ever read on hitRECord, and I have secretly been horribly offended on the behalf of circles everywhere for almost a year now.
moonbug and Joe, I hope you find this amusing :'D no hard feelings... but watch out for the circles while you're sleeping, they're pretty mad.
so i was playing around with saintmaker's amazing photo & somehow a scary red wolflike demon with a conveniently wide open mouth emerged subtley from the background... surely a sign from the photoshop gods that i'd gotten a chance to redeem myself for that last LRRH REmix i did. hope this serves as an interesting poster for our little red collab! <3
featuring a fractal KOCH SNOWFLAKE in the background (with a boundary of INFINITE LENGTH!!!!)... i keep accidentally typing "kock" instead of "koch" because unfortunately my intelligence and maturity levels are not quite on the same level.
