Sunny Day Girl by Wayne Newton

I had the singular pleasure of seeing an honest to goodness Wayne Newton Las Vegas show in the early 80s.  And wow, what a spectacular treat.  His opening song was Comin' to America, by Neil Diamond.  As a surly Gen X teen, I tried to resist enjoying the show which was clearly meant for an older crowd and full of loungey songs like Danke Shoen, but you know... Wayne Newton is just so uniquely fancy and unironically amazing.  He won me over by the end.

Here's a link to a quick video I made, where I was putting some finishing touches on my painted 45.  https://youtu.be/Btm3loWBB5c

Painting this record brought back Vegas memories and gave me reminiscent joy.

Black and Tan

There are a few regular image searches that I do for design purposes on Google. Very pedestrian and tame, like flowers and paisleys, and certain geometric shapes.  One particular clip art vector design comes up all the time and I see it, recognize it in its usual blandness, and then move on.

This morning, I did my regular search (first one of the new year) and found The Bland Floral Paisley again.  Imagine my surprise when I saw that this time, it was a huge tattoo.  And not just a huge tattoo.  A huge butt tattoo.  Covering the entire cheek.

I'm not sure whether I've somehow underestimated this design's power, or whether someone else has.

Happy New Year.
