Creative Challenge #1/Weekend

Well folks, I'm back like a bad dream. Had a very relaxing weekend in MD and DC. Mostly MD just hanging out with ShawnQT, Fuzzy, Omar and Derron at my friend David's house. Sorry folks, nothing really exciting. We went to some of the monuments in DC, ate out, shopped and rested.

While we were there I was able to introduce them to Bob Evans' restaurant. They were instantly in love. Hmmm. I miss those restaurants that I grew up on. However while I was there I remember why I moved. The stores were sooooooo far away. It was probably a 10 minute ride to get to the nearest grocery store. I like my one block walk that I have now.

Anyway, like I mentioned in the last post, I am trying to get the Creative Challenge going on my blog. It works like this; I will post a subject (i.e. gum) and the goal is for as many people to create anything with gum as a subject. This can be a song, video, animation, graphic art, picture, drawing, etc. Everyone will have a week to send or post their project. This is not a contest but a creative outlet. No judgements or criticisms. The theme for this week is "Leaf" or "Leaves". Feel free to creatively push the theme's boundaries.

As far as posting, I am still trying to find the best way to have all entries in one place. I know for videos, animations, etc you can post to YouTube and link them in a post. Or if you want to put the images on your own site, you can do the same. For those who don't have the space, I am looking into Flickr. There is a way to create a group (private) meaning that we would be the only ones looking or adding comments to the images. By being private we can be as, how do you say, explicit as we want. The problem comes to be that everyone will have to create a Yahoo account and the process of posting an image requires a few steps.

Those of you participating, please give your input. I will then finalize a way and then we can post. In the meantime you can begin working on it.
