1. yup, although not with any consistency. but I do keep the stuff around, and every now and then I get the urge.

2. I don't think scrapbooking in of itself is lame, but I do think there are definitely aspects of scrapbooking "culture" that are lame. For example, spending $20 on supplies so that someone can copy the *exact* layout (colors, wording and all) they saw in a magazine -- that counts as lame in my book. Especially when they then go on and on about it is such a "creative release" to "create art" like that. smiley - erm

3. Definitely. smiley - cheers

4. Personally, I find some of the stuff out there useful because they allow me to achieve a better look than I would ever have the time or patience to do by hand. For example, using stamps or stickers for letters. I do think it goes a bit overboard, though. I've seen people spend more than $30(US) on the materials for a single page -- buying paper and vellum and printed ribbon and foam cut-outs and metal dies that will only be used for that page alone. The cost in of itself is a little nuts to me, but what seems to bother me more is how many people seem to feel like they can't make a nice page without buying all that stuff -- either not trusting their own creative abilities, or feeling like they need to do what "everyone else" is doing for their scrapbook to be "right".

5. I *definitely* think scrapbooks have that potential, and there are many different ways you can go about it -- and that, in of itself, is interesting to me. I've seen subversive quilting, too, but I think that might be too daunting of a project to tackle for a senior project.

What else?

smiley - cheers

Hi Mikey! my latest batch of smiley - sillyness is a "space-entertainment programming sitcom & drama epic parody/satire" thing that I have been putting together with some of the folks from the Beta RPG as part of a parallel "game within the game."
I did a write up of the lifestyle & culture to the planet where my character who's an alien actor is supposed to be from.
Please take a look @ : A8965849
Do you like it?

I haven't seen any online, although I don't think I've ever looked. But I have seen some examples at local quilt shops or quilt shows. In the beginning, the well-known AIDS quilt (that travels around the country) was actually considered quite subversive within the quilting community, from what I recall. But I've also seen normal-sized quilts that were more intentional in their subversiveness. I saw one quilt that utilized a lot of hemp-based fabrics and had what looked at first glance to be traditional patterns, but actually included a marijuana leaf motif, etc. I've seen a quilt that used fabric with licensed children's characters (Disney, probably) in the form of appliqued dollar signs that almost (but not quite) crowded out the "Dick and Jane" style fabric underneath. I've heard of a quilt that looked like a floral sampler but actually depicted positions from the kama sutra, but I've never seen it, so it could just be a myth. I saw an interesting quilt once that clearly was doing something intriguing with some very clearly feminine vs very masculine fabrics, but I wasn't quite able to grasp the intent behind it. I've seen the pattern of a traditional wedding quilt altered to make it clear that it wasn't a "traditional wedding" being celebrated.

Find a quilting-specific fabric store, and wander around -- the possibilites jump out at you. smiley - cheers

That's odd, the 'd' I'd punched in to the "do" up there must have glitched or something to have simply disappeared...

I don't have much help for you with the table commands -- I don't use those much myself. It seems like there are a few people here on hootoo who are awesome at it, though. There's some useful stuff here about tables and badges -- A2673353 -- but I think a lot of it comes down to using the test thing in the URL to check the guideML someone used when you want to be able to do something like what they did.

smiley - cheers
