Scientific Delirium Madness
I found some old poems I wrote…

…They were math poems and probably literally the only poems I have ever written in my whole life. I’ll admit, I don’t have a knack with words. They don’t come naturally. I wrote these up in one night after I finished my homework and rewarded myself by watching Detective Conan on Adult Swim at 3:00 in the morning.

They were for a poetry contest my high school was holding for “Math appreciation month”. Which is in April, apparently.  I wrote three poems and they each won something. I’ll save e the contest-winning poem for last (I didn’t win anything neat for it, but a long-ass column with my name attached in the school new paper)

The first one is a calculus limerick I made up! This limerick was so badass, the school literally MADE UP A WHOLE NEW AWARD for it. I got a FRAMED CERTIFICATE for this bitch. It was called the “Mathelete” award. Check it. Accuracy.

The integral from zero to pi
With respect to the variable y
Of the function, sine
Plus a constant, you’ll find,
Is two plus that constant times pi.

The second one won an honorable mention for its subtlety. (hint: count the syllables)

Gauss,
Klein,
As Well
As Einstein:
Mathematicians
Who had achievements quite divine,
But more notable than those three, I’m sure you’d agree,
Inspired this poem to a degree, was none other than famous Fibonacci.

And last, but not least, is this beast! It’s a cumulative poem inspired by and parodying the children’s song, “The Little Old Lady Who Swallowed a fly”. (Youtube video for the unfamiliar).
 Two additional notes:

1: Yes, I know it’s not perfectly accurate. I was in high school.

2. I took some really funky creative artistic license in verse 8, with the word “Lebesguity.” which is not a word. It’s so far from word, it yields NO Google search results except for forcing you to looked results for Henri Lebesgue… Whose last name I used to create the word. And as far as I know, has nothing to do with the type of fractals I was thinking of when writing that verse. I don’t even know HOW I knew about this mathematician considering I don’t even know anything about him or his  work now. I’m calling bullshit researching on past-Connie. I wish I could change that verse

.In any case. Here’s the first verse. The rest is behind a cut because this post is already long enough.

There once was a point,
It was fixed in its place,
It had no volume, nor area,
Dimension, nor space
Changing Dimensions…….

Hey, y’all. I know some of my followers would enjoy my uncle’s horror book. It just went on sale! I would recommend not eating while reading it - that is, unless you’ve already got the hankerin’ for some human leg.

Flesh: It’s What’s For Dinner. Ghouls are overrunning Chicago. With an appetite for the dead, it doesn’t matter if it’s road-kill, bodies from the morgue, or the recently buried. For Tucker Smith, life is now scarier than the horror novels he studies. He soon discovers that low-budget horror movies, reality TV shows, and cultural sensitivity collide with family secrets.

I made Geddy a path mule in my Animal Crossing crossing game and he looks pretty good in a Sailor Moon cut out.

Oh, I’m also editing this to add that I had a dream that I found an old VHS hidden in my house. It was of the entire Les Miserables movie (which I have not seen nor actually know any songs from). There were random songs cut from the movie and replaced with a video of Geddy sitting on a stool in an empty room in a spotlight and mocking the singing. Much like the bird in this video.

Artist Shintaro Ohata Seamlessly Blends Sculpture and Canvas to Create 3D Paintings

When first viewing the artwork of Shintaro Ohata up close it appears the scenes are made from simple oil paints, but take a step back and you’re in for a surprise. Each piece is actually a hybrid of painted canvas and sculpture that blend almost flawlessly in color and texture to create a single image. The cinematic figures are sculpted from polystyrene while the backgrounds are made from traditional painting techniques.

Here are some more ideas for the Rush quilt blocks. I still have Caress of Steel, Hold your Fire, Snakes and Arrows, and Clockwork Angels. But I’m still struggling on how I can do those with only triangles and squares. If anyone has any advice, send me a message. It would be greatly appreciated :)

 And, of course, I still have the debut album, which is sketched out. It’s based off of  this person’s tutorial

In any case, the mock ups look a little silly now, but they’ll look super awesome with the appropriate fabrics and embroidering. I have no idea how one would get started on such a big project and without much of a fabric stash…

I’m thinking about making a Rush quilt, but I can’t decide if it’s silly or not. I wanted to do kind of abstract blocks for each studio album cover by simplifying the images down to just squares/rectangles and triangles. Then I would arrange them sort of like the first picture.

Here are rough versions of three of the albums I did today using some free quilting program that you can find from this website. They wouldn’t be cut and pieced exactly like the lines imply in the pictures I just couldn’t figure out how to erase the unnecessary ones..

Most of the blocks will be 30”x30”, the two center ones will be 50”x30”, and the Starman (Which would actually be red) will be 50”x60”. So the total quilt will be about 15’x10’. 

It would be an ambitious project and would take a long time to design it and create it. Like. a block a month or less What do you guys think? Should I give it a go?
