at loss.... by derkert at loss.... by derkert
....or just plain dead. Could not find a proper title for this one.

Haven't been around much on DA lately. I have been at loss with css and xtmls codes. Not yet dead though. By and by I am getting the grip of the coding. Very logical; not my cup of tea...but I think I can make a buck or two from it.

This is disturbing O___O He really looks dead. And the happy baby blue in the background makes it even more eerie.

Yeah, that's why I'm weird like that, haha. I guess, I just see it as a corpse that's in a "better place." Like it's just been dropped into a new world or something.

This makes me think of preserved death.
A big cold world with a man turned to ash-paper from social effects.
Crunchy and dry from lack of needed human touch and support.
I like the colors and damage. It effects my stomach.

That is just what it is!

A man found in a glacier. dead for hundreds of years, or even thousand!

Take care of stomach. Dont look at pictures like this!

I get a womb-like feeling from this, and I don't know why. The cityscape is not exactly uterine. But the person is sort of fetal. Maybe it is the sense of floating helplessness.

looks tired and lonely, but much more alive than the rest of the city there. perplexing dichotomy.

Hm! Really. I thuoght about calling the piece "death in the city" – but it sounden a bit banal, so I was at loss, maybe ciatta morte. Could be italian for dead city, maybe?

"oh, photoshop - that's the thing where you can mix two pictures, right?" --- aaaarrrrrggggghhhhh
i wish you could write me some code to change all the idiocy around me into chocolate. i'd even pay you a buck or two ...
this one looks like the man with the pig nose crashed through the window of a greenhouse with dirty windows. why doesn't the gardener clean them? dignity! that's what it all boils down to. people are scared to lose their dignity. when it's more dignifying to clean others' toilets than to follow the rules of a brain-amputated headmaster, just ask alice when she's ten foot tall.
otherwise, all's well on the eastern front, i am losing my mind from working, in my mail there's forms from the tax people, my bank account is collecting dust from all the emptiness and i have just two bottles of beer left. hooray. thank god tomorrow will be friday. any questions? no, i thought so.

Oh Dear. Kat no beer here either on the northern front!
Thank god it is friday. Fpr me it just another day.

I guess dignity can be what values you want other people to see. I f you are a king cleaning toilets would be real embarrassing but if you are a king in spirit cleaning closets would not be that bad. I wish I were a that kind of king.

No questions. we talk later this evening. I aqm not ready with my carrot poem....

love

Coding is the most logical thing out there. Its frustrating how one ";" can make or break your whole design but that's also why I love it.

This seems quite logical too! Love organization of elements and bordering and light textures. :D

Wordpress is great too! I'm attempting to use it on my site but I don't know how to implement it on anything other than a blog...I need to figure that one out. Good luck!
