If you look at his website he's temporarily shut it down. I'll take a guess he's working on a total redo of it. I'm not a member of myspace and have no intention of ever using it, but for those that are he left his myspace link.

I sent him an invite. I had no intention of becomming a myspace member either, but I was bored on day and signed up. And all my "friends" are web cam girls.

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the late reply. I have never visited this portion of the site. I had no idea you guys did such a thing.

Ok, I lil more about me. I think it was about 2003-04, give or take 12 months when I came across the Ozzu website after doing a random search for art forums. During that time I quit using AOL as my ISP and unfortunately forgot my password around the same time. :oops: So, I was forced to start a new membership here. I think you can still find old post by me under the name OriginNO.

Fresno, located in the center of California and it looks and feels like it. Hot stacked on top of hot surrounded by high grass lands and dirt. All the beauty of California was saved for the outer edges with the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. 2 hours drive in either direction.

Yes, I am a freelance graphic designer and for the time being it's just part time. The rest of my time is spent going to school ( hopefully to become a full fledge art teacher) and being a father to my 3 soon to be 4 wonderful kids.

Ghetto slang differs from typical slang in two ways. The definition for any given word can change drastically at any time and it may not be a word at all. For example: I bought some iller, made sheezy it didn't have any womp womp on it, put it in a bleezy, got blowed, and washed it down with some Heem. Translation: I bought some weed, made sure it didn't have any coca on it, put it in a blunt, smoked it, and washed it down with some Hennessy. :wink:

My most preferred software would have to be Photoshop CS2, but only because I use it most often. But, I love Adobe After Effects and Macromedia (Adobe's) Freehand MX.

What got me into computers. Hmmm, I would have to say it had something to do with the fact that I was born at just the right time. I can remember what I believe was the first home video game console, Oddessy, with the 6 knobs three for each player. You know, the tennis game with the rectangles and the square ball, lol. And as time passed just seeing how the graphics for each new system was evolving started to peak my interest. I didn't start actually creating my own digital graphic until the induction of the Amiga computer which I had back in high school ('89-91). After '91 the high school high life kinda took over and suddenly I had no time to be sitting in front of a computer. My traditional forms of art sustained me until '99 when I bought my Mac G4.

I am usually very modest and don't really care to be the center of attention, in front of strangers anyway. My reaction I think is typical, I smile, count the seconds 'til it's over, and hope all the blood rushing to me face doesn't make my head explode. :oops:

My life's motto is "Id rather wear a t-shirt and jeans and have money
so when I wake up in my t-shirt and jeans I still have money" -James W. Belk, II (aka OriginNO)

I am an artist. I know now to not even attempt a career change. I tried it and it actually hurts; mentally and emotionally. It was like trying to give up food.

I won a plastic ninja sword at a birthday party which I eventually broke against the side of my brothers head. Not my fault, he should have known better than to sit any where near me while I am watching He-Man and reenacting fight scenes. He was lucky it wasn't a He-Man sword. :)

My mom is a professional singer and the memories of hearing hear sing around the house most of my life is priceless. Music has been nurtured into my personality so now I need it, couldn't live without it. Movies out music stays.

Before I had kids there was a lot of things I would have liked to change or do different. But now I realize everything I ever did, good or bad, lead me to having them and I would not give them back for anything in the world.

My two daughters, who are showing signs of being very talented artist, are my greatest accomplishments.

Thandie Newton, if you don't recognize her, she was in Mission Impossible II. Give me a weekend with her and I am sure I will have to find a new place to live.

Guilty pleasures, hmmm, ok; Squares (cigarettes), grapes (purple kush), heem, and any porn movie with Lacey Duvall. http://media.g4tv.com/gallery/3422_m.jpg //sorry the image was too big to display inline on ozzu!

This past Labour Day weekend Wife and I took the kids swimming and B-B-Qued at Grammies.

A useless talent. Oh yes. I can find the wrong woman without even looking for her.

My best trait, ? , I think I'm to modest to know really. I guess it's ability to make people laugh or feel comfortable around me.

I am most afraid of living longer than any of my children.

The last book I read was Disney Babies at the Farm.

No teeth. I can't smoke with the Hic-Ups

As you can tell by this post I am definitely a night owl.

My 5 pet peeves; (1.) People with a license and still can't drive worth a damn. It's against the law to drive to slow, too. (2.) Grown up's that cant seem to learn from the first mistake. (3.) The phone stops ringing just as I'm about to answer it then starts again after I sit back down. (4.) Standing in a long line with people who want to tell me their life story. (5.) Administrative employees that don't believe in human error.

Mac, the only computer for me.

Next GTKY: Musik

This summer the fam and I went up to Sequoia National Park.

Our current pets are a small colony of red ants that seem to be coming in from under the stove.

One thing about me that would probrably surprise you would be the fact that I am an African American that listens to Pink Floyd. And actually attended their last concert ever, in San Fran.

The meaning behind my nickname. Well, the nickname for the city of Fresno is: the "NO". Origin, meaning; The point at which something comes into existence or from which it derives or is derived. Thus you get, OriginNO. Of course when you say it fast it sounds like, original.

My favorite cookie is the O-R-E-O.

If I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life it would have to be: It's Not My Job by Mac Dre (RIP)

Photoshop? :?: CS2 :?:

I prefer the old Ozzu layout as compared to this one.

5 people with the same first name: My Dad, My Uncle (Moms side), My Brother-In-Law, Classmate in my Art Appreciation Class, and the kicker on my high school football team.

Snakes, plenty in California. Killed a diamondback rattle snake with a wrist rocket (sling shot), steel marble (ball bearing), and a large rock.

Kids? like previously stated. I have 3 and one on the way.

First Love? Thats a trick question for me so I am going to give you two answers. My first girlfriend that I actually cared about I have not seen or heard from in about 14 years. I think I might have to try to look her up. I would like to know what she made of herself. I thought I did but I never new what love was until after the birth of my first child. So, I would have to say my first love would be my oldest daughter. Anyone here with kids knows what I am talking about. WOW

What happened to 37. You can never trust those crazy prime numbers when you get two of 'em together.

Well, thats a lil about me. Whew, I started this at 2 am and I am beat good night yall. Thanks.
