Here’s to disprove all you doubters out there: I got a Portrait of Spam up JUST AS I SAID I WOULD! Self-validation aside, meet Dr. Ikenna Abuchi.

I also do have that previously mentioned, nearly completed Portrait of Spam — I swear, I do — and I’ll have that up within the next couple days.
New Years Resolution: More consistent activity on this c*ck sucker.
Every morning, I check my mailbox in the anticipation of receiving something. Usually it’s a bill, which is pretty lame and not the sort of thing I’m looking for.
