More Photoshop Fun

by Scott Cimarusti on July 31, 2009, no comments

I couldn’t resist…  Since I had so much fun with my last Photoshop experiment, I thought I would try one more–this time, though, I added the same photo of Megan Fox to a snapshot of me wearing goofy glasses later on at the same wedding reception. This time, I compromised attempted realism for humor.  Now […]

To Tattoo or Not to Tattoo

by Scott Cimarusti on July 30, 2009, no comments

My new neighbor across the street is a very talented and accomplihed tattoo artist, and my wife–who’s been considering getting a tattoo for quite some time now–is suggesting that she and I both get one from our new neighbor.

New Blog Title

I think I’ve finally found a title that I’m satisfied with–after having the blog for almost two years now (first on Blogger, then here). I never liked the word “mental” in the title–to me, it conveyed lunacy or instability.  Whereas the definition I found on dictionary.com for “cognitive” seemed to be closer to the meaning […]
