“What Does ‘CRYPTO-ART’ Mean to Me?” by Richard F. Yates [Really long ass post…]

I’ve made “BAD” digital art for a long time…in fact, since I got my first Apple IIc back in 1983 or 1984. (Back then, it was all VECTOR graphics, and I used Basic or Pro-Basic to write programs that would make these little “lines” move around the screen. It was exciting and new (although someContinue reading ““What Does ‘CRYPTO-ART’ Mean to Me?” by Richard F. Yates [Really long ass post…]”

“Very Very Very Short Stories (A Rehash)” by Richard F. Yates

About 150 years ago, I had something akin to writer’s block. It wasn’t your standard writer’s block, though, where I couldn’t get anything down on paper. This was a weird case in which I was CONSTANTLY writing, starting story after story, coming up with great characters, crazy plots, bizarre mysteries, horrifying monsters…but I’d never FINISHContinue reading ““Very Very Very Short Stories (A Rehash)” by Richard F. Yates”

“Monday is Upon Us (And We are Skeptical)” by Richard F. Yates

[Posted yesterday, 19 Aug. 2019, on my Steemit blog, but I think it’s still relevant, if for no other reason than I still like the drawing! —RFY] Greetings folks, it’s Monday again… (Seems like this happens every damn week.) And it was a busy weekend… Saturday, Mariah (the “Wife”) and Frankie (the “Older Daughter”) andContinue reading ““Monday is Upon Us (And We are Skeptical)” by Richard F. Yates”

“The DUCK Speaks” by Richard F. Yates

A few weeks ago, Mariah and I went to a Korean barbecue joint for a birthday party, and I spotted this stained glass duck image in one of the restaurant’s windows. To ME (maybe not to everyone) there seemed to be a look in the duck’s eye that might be anger or even disgust… Thus,Continue reading ““The DUCK Speaks” by Richard F. Yates”

“Read a Damn Book – 153: The Goon – Bunch of Old Crap”

It’s been over two weeks since my last book review, and I apologize for that! So today’s review, Eric Powell’s The Goon – Bunch of Old Crap, was sent to me by a good friend, Mark Counts (who can often be seen on my various sites doing “remixes” of my artwork—AND Mr. Counts is also aContinue reading ““Read a Damn Book – 153: The Goon – Bunch of Old Crap””

“George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ The Oregon Zoo, 10 Aug. 2019” by Richard F. Yates

[All the photos for this post were taken by me with my phone camera. We are hoping, someday, (maybe once the kids are all moved out), to be able to buy a “REAL” camera, with which Mariah and I will take many wonderful pictures. For now, we use what we have! —RFY] When Mariah andContinue reading ““George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ The Oregon Zoo, 10 Aug. 2019” by Richard F. Yates”

“New Crypto-Art! (Responses to the Times) [Warning: This One is a Bit Edgy]” by Richard F. Yates

[This piece was originally posted on my Steemit.com blog on 7 Aug. 2019. I post on Steemit EVERY DAY. No skipping. I haven’t missed a day in something like six or seven months…] [Editor’s note!! Steemit.com was purchased by a dictator, so I use HIVE now. It’s a decentralized blockchain controlled by the users!] HowdyContinue reading ““New Crypto-Art!

“Jake the Alligator Man’s Birthday Celebration (3rd Aug. 2019) in Long Beach, Washington, USA” by Richard F. Yates

[This photo, like all of the images in this piece, was taken by me. It’s an event poster for the Jake the Alligator Man Birthday Celebration, and it was in a shop window on the main drag—that ONE road, which is the heart of Long Beach, Washington… It’s not a big city… But I forgotContinue reading ““Jake the Alligator Man’s Birthday Celebration (3rd Aug. 2019) in Long Beach, Washington, USA” by Richard F. Yates”

“The Long Beach Pre-Show!” by Richard F. Yates

[What follows below are the three fairly short bits that I wrote building up to and during my and my family’s recent trip to Long Beach, Washington, USA. These little slabs of NON-COM, which include artwork and weirdness and complaints and possibly even some primitive humor, originally appeared on my Steemit.com blog on these days:Continue reading ““The Long Beach Pre-Show!” by Richard F. Yates”

“Leap (Plus Banter)” by Richard F. Yates

So!!!! Today is Monday, 5th August, 2019—and I’m making this DAY ONE of my PRODUCTIVITY PLAN. I’ve been…SLOTHFUL…as of late, but I’m done being slug-like and instead going to be much more erratic and buzzy, like a drunken hornet with tons of energy and only a vague sense of direction. (I think this will payContinue reading ““Leap (Plus Banter)” by Richard F. Yates”
