a test...

so i'm trying to figure out how to put images up on my page here. any ideas? i understand if i pay for blogger, they'll let me, but that's not happening. paying for blogger is like buying an obese prostitute...yeah, i enjoy the overall activity, but not worth it in the long run.

so far, i've mostly been trying linking to free webhosting joints, like angelfire (which is probably what you see above). but i keep winding up with shit like that, error messages, instead of the pic i want. i've tried several, but bupkis on returns.

so, any other blogspot (the pinto of bloghosts) suckers that have found a way around this, let me know. i don't want to move to another addy just for pic hosting, although it looks like i may have to. and it seems silly to move to a pay site for a blog with zero visitors on which i post once a week, but if that once a week post can include pictures, i may just have to.

eh, deal with it you say. but i'm learning photoshop, dammit! i have a pic of john kerry collecting elephant dung! how can i not want to share my visual genius with the world?

anywho, anybody that knows how i can get pics on my walmart addy, suggestions are welcome.

totally self-serving update: well, i think i got it. just needed to shop around for hosting joints. we'll see if it stays up for a day or two. and how 'bout that piece of art, anyway?


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
