So I tried watching the MTV Video Music Awards last night and felt completely out of touch. I had always heard that the big target demographic that advertisers are after are “Men, 18-35.” I always thought “Weird. I won’t suddenly change into my father at the age of 36.” Well on Saturday I turned 36, and as I tried watching the VMAs on Sunday I realized that I was right about not changing into my father, but the problem was that I hadn’t changed into a hip young kid, either. I am irrelevant.
The whole Myspace thing seems like a place for kids to spend time online–being angsty and putting themselves at risk for abduction. So I joined Facebook and thought, “Yeah. Looks like adults are here. People I graduated High School with. Nice.” Then I got my first piece of “Flair,” and as I looked throughout the choices of flair and realized that I have no opinion whatsoever on either the Jonas Brothers or Twilight, it became apparent that 98% of this Flair thing was not targeted at me. Once again, I’m irrelevant.
So…36 Saturday, VMAs on Sunday. Feeling old. Then Kid Rock came on, and I thought “Seriously? He’s still around? He sucked when he was new, like 10 years ago, didn’t he?” That’s when I realized that I’ve been out of the loop for a lot longer than I previously thought.
Anyhow, the monsterbubbles.com overhaul is complete–go check it out.
Also, I’ve opened up a skateshop kind of a thing. The folks at popdeck started up a print-on-demand service they call deckpeck for getting skateboard decks printed. You can buy some of my art printed on these decks for a mere $50 (plus shipping). So check it out, and buy a board. Please?
Sorry no Grandpa Sex Machine updates–no time to color lately. I’ve got several all sketched out, I just need to color. Once they are up I’m going to concentrate on another project for a bit. More on that shortly.
