Behold the lone mantis of the Apocalypse
darthkenshin
So I had this weird thought that if I had to be an insect I'd probably want to be a praying mantis or a dragonfly because they're both badass and colorful I'm wondering if my friends had to be bugs what they would choose to be if they had to choose. So completely off topic I have a grand I got in a scholarship this summer waiting for me at SFSU bursars office that I plan on getting processed and done with tomorrow. I think I'll get a computer armoire from staples with it so I can have some vertical room in my room. Maybe pay the rent or payback a loan and put the rest in one of my accounts. I got two movies today a hammer film version of Dracula with Christopher Lee playing the Count and fellow Star Wars Alumni Peter Cushing playing Prof. Van Hellsing. The other film is academy award nominee for best foreign picture about Genghis Khan called mongol. I admire Genghis Khans strategic mind and insight and his ambition,not necessarily his way of accomplishing it what he did was actually quite amazing he created one of the largest empires the world has known stretching from Mongolia in the east all the way to Austria in the west and as far south as Thailand and India which I think is quite impressive. So fleet week is done I didn't see much in terms of the airshow due to week but I did however see the jeep carrier USS. Bonhome Richard or better known as the "the Bonny Dick" thanks John Paul Jones we needed you...anyway I'm pretty sure it carries helicopters and marine harrier attack aircraft but it was still neat to look at. In terms of video games I finished Force Unleashed which was badass, I'm think I might get Dead Space the latest survival horror game to soon come out on video game consoles I'm not a huge survival horror fan but I do like a good story and I do like the SciFi genre so I think i might give it a shot.

fleet week

Well its fleet week, which usually means the Navy's flight demo team The Blue Angels are out and about above the Bay doing really neat aerobatics and stuff but this time they are accompanied by the Canadian flight demo team the Snowbirds who are equally awesome to watch but they differ in that they're 9 plane flight as opposed to the angels 6 and they fly slightly slower aircraft, I find myself sad I won't be able to watch them this weekend, I haven't really seen either team fly in several years the blue angels more so than than the Snowbirds but as fleet week in SF is annual thing every October there's always next year I suppose, I wonder if anyone would want to watch the angels with me next year ? Anyway I have rumblings in my tumblings and I need to fix so cheerio to all. For your aesthetic pleasure, behold coolness 20ft off the surface of bay at at near or over mach 1 and they share the same colors as the Cal Bears no less.

Well I did mediocrity at its finest for my Quiz I expect nothing more than a C because thats what the paper deserves. Today we talked about NeoClassicism and Colonialism in Art History to which I kinda yawned through. I am Jack's complete lack of surprise when it comes to those two periods of Art take a military history class that focuses on the Napoleonic era of warfare and you'll find much of the same messages that we covered today. Napoleon like the Romans and so many others before him liked using art as propaganda. Colonial artwork was slightly more fun as it usually portrayed things that celebrated Europe's intrusion into Africa and Southwest Asia you had picture of things like harem girls and Turkish harems and concubine bathing with each other etc.....like these.......the first being an example of Napoleonic NeoClassical propaganda and the second image is that of Colonial Art and they where both done by the same artist Ingres who was student of Jean David another famous NeoClassical artist. Cheers all
