Fun with the kids...

14:35 Oct 31 2010
Times Read: 1,002


This weekend was our weekend for our pumpkin carving tradition. The kids always enjoy it and it's fun to see how their ideas and artistry change over the years.


They grew some of their own this year - these smaller ones, for their small garden, was the fruit of their labor - no pun intended. So it was extra enjoyable for them. Their mom also bought them a Dremmel pumpkin carver which is a neat tool for doing skin cutouts without carving all the way through.


Unfortunately in the hands of a 10 year old, it just turns into a random pumpkin flinger.


Anyway, the results were fun and interesting...

You should have seen the pumpkin guts... it was incredible.



The one on the left was done by my 8-yr old. We wanted to do a vampire carving, much like last years except he put a little more though and skill into it - complete with cape-collars! The middle two, done completely by my daughter - she's 10, we can trust her with a knife now... kind of... the Frankenstien one, with scars and everything, came out great I think. The far right was done by my 5-yr old. He drew out a three-eyed, four-nosed Eyeclops. Ahhh.. the mind of a 5-yr old.


They also felt the need to buy three large pumpkins at Lowe's, since they had them for something like $2 each...

These were the toughest, stringiest pumpkins I've ever seen...



The far left, again, done by my 8-yr old - he wanted a carving of Buckbeak the Hippogriff from Harry Potter... I told him that might be a bit ambitious; this is the end result. The far right was done by the 10-yr old - she wanted to turn it into Harry Potter himself. Notice the lightning bolt scar and glasses - kind of turned out like Harry Potter and Charlie Brown had a love child, but I think that is just as fitting for the holiday. The middle one is perhaps my favorite; drawn out by the 5-yr old. He just wanted something scary. It looks angry, has scars and the mouth with the inverse teeth.. or... gaps in the teeth.. I told him it look a bit like a hockey player that could eat you. He enjoyed that.


All in all, it was a messy, fun good time.

The part I'm impressed with the most about the big one the 5-yr old drew out is how well proportioned he made everything. It took the other two a lot longer to figure that out and they still don't get it right a lot of time.

...and I've said this to a couple people today, one way or another...


My intention with the previous entry was NOT to pick on the artist in any way, whatsoever.


I'm still not sure what it is... that is just my interpretation of it.


Art is in the eye of the beholder. Like those people that see a canvas with a few splatters of paint and muse, "The color definition really reflects the artist's internal struggle between his desire to create and the pressures placed upon him by the corporate monolith he must conform to... really, it is a reflection of all of us."


No, it's a few splatters of paint. Move along.


Know what I mean?


The artist meant that picture to be a self-reflective image, maybe not of who she is, but who she feels like she is...


...I saw a vulva.


It's in the eye of the beholder. I'm not right or wrong, I just see... a vulva.

Please look at this and tell me I'm not the only one who sees this....


This is some hand drawn art - original work that the user here on VR is using as her avatar. It is stated in the profile "This is a drawing of mine of who I am."

...original art - just borrowing it for this example.  Chill the f*** out.



It is a very interesting drawing... but this is the way I see it...

...and she claimed she didn't know what a vulva was.



I'm not displaying this to pick on or make fun of the user - not at all. I think the expression of original, creative work is paramount to making this site a more interesting place to visit.


But... uhhh... am I the only one who sees this?


Otherwise I'm stuck at trying to figure out exactly what it is supposed to be... those look like insect pincers down there at the bottom... yikes! Know what I'm saying?

yeah, I saw it, too. Only, I pictured it as being upside down. The big white blotch being the clitoris, and the darker bits being the folds of the labia. But your way makes more sense. Maybe.



I suppose when it's abstract it goes both ways.

...my grandfather whom I lived with passed away when I was 14. Although I realize many people never get to know their grandparents at all and even fewer still get to enjoy 14 years of a close relationship with them, I still feel the hurt and disappointment of losing someone so influential to me so early in my life.


He taught me life lessons I will never forget - and more of them in 14 years than I think anyone else in my life ever has.


One important one being, "If you don't have time to do it right the first time, you're not going to have time to do it over again."


A lesson the people who did work on this house surely were never taught... ugh.

I was fortunate to have my maternal grandfather until I was in my late teens. He was a good man, and taught me alot about looking at things, and really seeing them.



He also looked at my parents the day I was born after seeing me for the first time, and said:



"You're not really gonna try and raise that are ya?"

Tonight is Roger Waters, The Wall at HSBC Arena here in Buffalo.


HSBC, although the name of a bank, we call it the Hot Sauce and Blue Cheese Arena.


Morri is a wee bit excited for the concert as we have been looking forward to it since May. I was 10 when Floyd originally toured for The Wall and although my parents went and I begged to go, I didn't get to.


I'm pretty stoked as well. This will be a great show.
