Shake it off, kid!

Sooo, I've shaken off the funk I was having on monday, and am back in the mix. You may have noticed I provided an altered photo of mine very own BBQ, and a giant Guinness. I discovered a free software that does most of what photoshop does (I have an old pirated copy of photoshop, but I would rather practice fair use, thank you very much), called GIMP2. While I am no Dr. Zaius (a photoshop genius if you ask me), I want to expand on my skills in this medium and add a little extra flavor to the ol' attic, after all, it's a little known fact, I dropped out of art school, and the need to create still ...burns, no....smolders? a smidge?? I don't know, but here I am trying it again. In my day we didn't have your fancy "computers", whith their "photoshops", and their "file types", ...we made art by hand, covered in paint and mud! AND WE LIKED IT!!!!!.....no we didn't...I dropped out, I hated just about everyone in my school. Bring me the sanatized anonymous world of digital media friends...I can't stand the filthy humans.

I too, have Zaius-envy. I'm hoping to find a good program on my new Mac to use.

You're way ahead of me. I don't think I'll ever learn. My best friend is a whiz on Photoshop and it takes her 30 seconds to do what would take me an entire weekend. I've got it easy. I'm O.k. with that.

I've heard of Gimp, but I've never tried it. I love your giant glass of guiness!
