This week's doodle is pretty fancy-schmancy, so I think it is worth making you wait. Ok, not really, but it would make a good excuse.
It was waaaaay too hot, and turning on the computer when it is super hot is bad. Ok, the computer thing is true, but not as much of a reason as it was way too hot in the room where the computer is for me to set foot in there. And believe it or not, the weather isn't even the real reason I didn't do it. The real reason is that Kira left for New Zealand where she will be studying for a semester. And it was too hot!
This doodle was done in pen on a square sheet of paper while watching an odd movie with Kirk Douglas called Ace in the Hole.
I cut a bunch of paper squares to deliberately force myself to make square format doodles. That's about as premeditated as I can get. Even then, I thwarted myself plenty and just made random doodles anyhow.
Never heard of this movie before watching it. Apparently, it bombed on release. I don't know why, because it was well acted and a great story. Ace in the Hole is about media manipulation and exploitation, something we take for granted as the truth now, but it must have been pretty shocking when it came out in 1951. My only objection was the annoying ear worm Leo song (if you watch the movie, you will know exactly what I am talking about). The stupid thing stuck in my head for 2 days. The movie was a bit quaint, but thoroughly relevant.
