    ridiculously good Blocktronics 16 Colors artpack released June 28th         
    but it has been done  This release exceeds that on in quantity              
    quality  originality so surely our 6th art release in October will be       
    total shit  A lot of old faces have returned to amaze us this month

    The following by ENZO                                                       
    Aristotle said the aim of art is to represent not the outward               
    appearance of things  but their inward significance  This is also valid     
    for the artist  An artwork allows you to view the world with the            
    artists  eyes  but you re free to interpret and connect it with             
    your own experiences and emotions                                           
    Blocktronics started as a group and now powered by all these amazing        
    artists became a life style  A creative movement made by incredible         
    people passionated about sharing their unique view of the world and         
    feed viewers  souls with genuine  and new  emotions                         
    As Henri Matise once said  creativity takes courage and I congratulate      
    all of you that made this artpack possible  You re the bravest people       
    I know and I feel blessed to be one of you sharing the same love for        
    ANSi art  The Blocktronics dream is made possible by your sincere love      
    and dedication                                                              
    This group belongs to everyone passionated about art and feel an            
    irresistible urge to create or just admire good and fresh artworks  I       
    hope you enjoy this moment as much as we did creating it

     If you hear a voice within you say  you cannot paint   then by all         
     means paint  and that voice will be silenced

    Here are some status updates from Filth                                     
      i know that most people will agree that rocky IV is the best in the       
      franchise  there s a lot to like  80 s us russia propaganda  rocky        
      seeking vengeance  and then rocky bridging the gap between two heated     
      nations by beating ivan drago and winning the hearts of the fine          
      folks in russia  oh yeah  and james brown                                 
      but it seems to be TOO awesome and distracts us of one strange part       
      of the story  i never really thought about it until now  but there s      
      the whole mini story of rocky buying his pal paulie a robot  but          
      really it s more of a cyborg that s capable of understanding spoken       
      commands  and mimicking human emotions  we re so caught up in all the     
      boxing action that we sort of don t bother thinking about the fact        
      that there s an out of place sci fi situation in a movie about            
      boxing  THE ROBOT CAN MIMIC PEOPLE                                        
      i ve hit the three year mark of no booze  however  i ve found that i      
      do go on extreme mp3 and mobile app benders  i ll spend hours on a        
      downloading binge  and wake up the next day with no recollection of       
      downloading things like the first two TLC albums  ahh well                
      i ain t too proud to beg                                                  
      my friends  seven year old daughter explained to me today the reason      
      behind why sometimes when you go into a dark room and turn on a           
      light  the bulb quickly goes out  because there are ghosts in the         
      room and they don t like the lights on  so they break the bulb to         
      keep it dark                                                              
      my first thought was  oh  well now  that s just the dearest thing         
      but on my way home i kept thinking about all those movies about           
      ghosts that talk to children  by the time i got home i had myself so      
      worked up over this  one of my greatest fears in life are ghost           
      children  i almost knocked over the coffee maker fumbling for the         
      kitchen light thinking  PLEASE DON T GO OUT   PLEASE DON T FLICKER        
      OFF WHEN I TURN YOU ON    but don t worry  i m okay                       
      from time to time i still have severe night terrors jolting me awake      
      and screaming from horrendous nightmares about how much Boondock          
      Saints 2 sucks                                                            
      I met Jerome Bettis tonight at work  He shook my hand and said  Woah      
      I like that hair do  Maybe I should try that out sometime   and sort      
      of chuckled  It was everything I imagined it would be                     
      i did something for the first time  ever  today  bought my own            
      umbrella  seems like everywhere i ve lived there was always an            
      umbrella stashed in some closet  so i went all out and bought a           
      super classy  14 99 umbrella  when ya go  ya go big  something            
      else i did for the first time  ever  today  jammed a  14 99               
      umbrella into a garbage can  seems  14 99 umbrellas and kites are         
      made out of the same material  they say you can t see teardrops           
      in the rain  but you know what you can see  some jerkwad fighting         
      a  14 99 umbrella on the rainy streets and losing  being a grownup        
      is hard sometimes                                                         
      you know who probably hates mondays more than anyone else ever            
      the woman in the movie Office Space who had the popular line              
       Looks like someone has a case of the mun days   she most likely          
      heard that quote at every single place she ever went to in                
      public  every single day                                                  
      waiting in a slow checkout line can be a slight annoyance                 
      luckily  i have a little piece of humanity that enables me                
      to NOT let it destroy my life  i can t say the same for the guy in        
      front of me who is doing that annoyed customer interpretive dance         
      that goes a little something like this                                    
      i also have a good feeling he s one of those people that will look        
      over his shoulder to make brief eye contact with me then stare            
      at the floor in my direction and mumble something else about the          
      performance of the poor kid at the register and hoping i m on board       
      with him and his crusade to endure this horrible joan of arc              
      situation he s making it out to be                                        
      i m assuming he and the bag of muddy buddy chex mix he has clutched       
      in his shaking hands have some serious business to attend to

    Wow  this art pack was really huge  Must have taken you ages  Some          
    parts feel a bit too solid while others are bordering on messy and          
    there are a few places that I feel are missing antialiasing  but            
    it s still very good  The nose of the  bin guy looks a slightly too         
    sharp to me  Obviously  you don t know anything about art
