E2 Print Exchange

(idea) by mcai7et2 (print)

I like making pictures and sending them to people, if you would like a black and white 8x10 print of one of my photos, please drop me a /msg, I will see what I can do. All I ask is that you send me a picture of the print in situ. Before you ask, my photos are not online at the moment, but tell me what you like and trust my judgement ;).

I decided to start doing this because everyone is already doing mix cds and book exchanges, I thought this might be a little different, also I am horribly narcissistic and like the idea of my pictures on other people's walls.

Some Quotes:
Leonard Cohen: "The reason I write is to make something as beautiful as you are"
Thom Yorke: "White wine and sleeping pills, help me get back to your arms. Cheap sex and sad films help me get where I belong."
Winston Churchill: "Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour."

My Second Ever Node (now residing in Node Heaven, posted here for posterity):

It is a little known fact that during the first world war, pilots on both sides used to use cats as airborne projectile weapons. The cat was filled with molten bronze to add bulk and strength and then dropped from a biplane. The cat's innate sense of balance meant that they always fell accurately and landed on their feet, which would often be sharpened to form a four tipped armour piercing weapon.

Further developments of the same principle involved the bronze cats having explosive slices of toast strapped to their back to produce a long range smart weapon which would speed towards its target powered by this primitive anti gravity device. To target a specific building, the target simply had to be marked with a bowl of catnip and pinpoint accuracy could be achieved from many miles.

Later in the war, aerodynamic techniques had evolved to the point where the cat was unneccessary but the tradition is still kept alive today. A pilot in the RAF is still presented with a bronze statuette of a cat after his first sucessful bombing run.

The sacrifice of the millions of cats who gave their lives is commemorated at a special service every January, held in St Paul's Cathedral.

I just asked CowbotNeal to check my user name on his nick-o-meter, it appears to be 66% lame.

Etymology of my username
It was my login at Uni. The first two letters refer to the University, the next, the department, the number is the year I joined, the next two letters are my initials and the final number is because there was another person with my initials on the course. I use it because it is never taken, so I can always use the same login for every website I visit.

I wish i knew if anyone had ever read this page
