I hear people say all the time "I keep my circle small". Well, I don't know who hurt you. But fuck that. Make friends. Make lots of friends. Make hundreds, if not thousands of friends. Surround yourself with good people. It'll make your life a lot better. That's about as deep as i'll ever get.
Haven't taken a family photo in a while. Really happy with my selection. Two Hofners (the violin and the club), tricked out Fender Precision with Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder pickup and Leo Quan Badass bridge, Ibanez GSR190 with Dimarzios, completely tricked out Fender Squier Bronco set up like a Musicmaster and a GTX that I've redone three times now. #bass #bassguitar #hofner #fender #fenderbass #ibanez #ibanezbass #gtxbass #seymourduncan #dimarzio
An old friend of mine got diagnosed with leukemia and is having a very difficult time finding a donor match. After reading about bone marrow transplants I've come to the conclusion it's a fucking travesty people die in America waiting for a bone marrow transplant match. It's about the easiest thing you'll ever do. They don't drill into your hip anymore. It takes pretty much zero effort. Seriously, go to @bethematch and do some research. Go to their website. Order the cheek swab kit. ZERO effort. Do. It. What the fuck else are you gonna do with your life? #bethematch #bonemarrowtransplant
28"x28". 19,881 beads. As I'm making this I think "I'm only making mega pieces from now on." Then I go to tape, flip and iron and I think "Never again." There's a couple creases in it and a horribly ironed spot where things got over ironed because the beads around that spot wouldn't fuse at all. But either way it's mercifully done. #perler #perlerbeads #hamabeads #jimmorrison #thedoors #portrait #mancountry #hedgewoodnorthwest
Current WIP. Just started a pretty big 5x5 boards portrait piece. (I need to buy more boards) It'll be 141x141 beads. 19,881 total. My 2nd biggest piece ever. Unlike my biggest piece (the infamous Kurt Cobain "Shattered Dreams" fiasco) this will be made all at one time. Next pic will be around Thanksgiving weekend when I hopefully finish it. #perler #perlerbeads #hamabeads #portrait #mancountry #hedgewoodnorthwest
About ten hours into an epic perler piece and I realized I needed the smooth sounds of @finallysomeaction to keep me going. I've listened to this gem probably 100 times over the last year or so. It's my go to when making outrageously time consuming pieces. #perler #perlerbeads #hamabeads #finallysomeaction #mancountry #hedgewoodnorthwest
