The most intense, controversial episode of the K-TOWN Reality Show just came out today as a belated Christmas present for the viewers, old and new.

SUMMARY: “This group is freaking hopeless.” – Young

      After being pulled out of a cat fight with Violet, Jessica gives Joe an ultimatum — he has to either choose her or his friendship with Jowe — but Joe is unable to give her a straight answer. Their intense arguing lights a fire to the tensions within the cast. Steve attempts to salvage Young’s bachelor party until Jasmine accuses him of kissing another girl at the bar behind Christine’s back. Frustrated at his friends’ inability to get along, Young threatens to walk out and cancel the wedding.

    Sorry for the belated meme post. I had to make them very quickly before I left for my four day road trip to Florida with Mike. I just got to The Sunshine State a few hours ago and settled in with the in-laws.

    If you haven’t already watched Episode 4 of K-TOWN Season 2, don’t miss out now! See it here:

    SUMMARY: “Who takes their shoes off during a strip?” – Joe

    The Bachelor Party From Hell: Part 1 (from season 1): http://youtu.be/WAPhFpbUnN0

        The cast heads to Busby’s for Young’s second bachelor party only to find the club empty. Despite Steve’s screw up, everyone makes the most of it and still has a blast. Steve and Jowe attempt to hit on some girls at the bar while Scarlet surprises So Young with a lap dance she won’t forget. Everyone’s fun is cut short when Joe’s girlfriend Jessica picks a fight with Steve and then Jowe and then Violet, which quickly escalates into an all-out brawl on the dance floor.

      It’s that time again for gift exchanging! This year, Mike and I have both been so busy that we couldn’t really decide on what to get each other. So we made a deal to buy each other some clothes and be done with it.

      But I lied to Mike, haha. For a while now, I had this idea in my head of customizing the exact throw pillow from one of our most favorite shows 30 ROCK. I thought it might look cool in his living room or the back seat of his car.

      In Season 5 Episode 6 “Gentlemen’s Intermission,” Jack Donaghy had scolded his assistant Jonathan for not being ambitious enough to be his mentee and then pointed out his throw pillow with the embroidered quote: “Ambition is the willingness to kill the things you love and eat them to stay alive.”

      Screenshot of the throw pillow from the 30 ROCK season 5 episode 6 “Gentlemen’s Intermission.”

      Color me shocked when I found out they weren’t already selling them on the NBC online store!

      So I used the printing website CafePress to make the pillow. While the design options on CafePress are few (you’re limited to only a 11″ by 11″ space on the 18″ by 18″ square), it was still a bargain compared to other printing websites that would have charged nearly $80 for a friggin’ custom pillow.

      I played around with the design on Photoshop Elements 8, which Mike got me last year. Because the background color is limited to black or white, I had to change the original design color from dark brown to black.

      The font is called Savoye LET and I made sure it matched exactly like the one on the 30 ROCK throw pillow.

      As it shows up on CafePress as a preview.

      And it arrived 7-10 days later. Voila.

      Came stuffed in a box.

      OMG, so soft and poofy.

      The border is a little thicker than I’d like. But overall, it looks really amazing.

      P.S. He liked it.

      Her birthday was about a month ago but because of school and a lack of sleep, I didn’t get a chance to make her a card.

      I made it out of paper, a small postboard, several Sharpie pens and a pair of scissors. I would’ve used my acrylic matte medium (my favorite non-sticky substitute for glue) but I didn’t want to clean my brush after.

      Man, I found a whole new love for cropping — in which the main image covers over letters or a secondary image.

      I pasted another strip of paper behind her image to hold it up.

      Here are some photos of my parents snowshoeing in Canada, including a photo I used as inspiration for the card.

      I would’ve drawn her snowshoes as well until I realized I drew her boot too close to the edge of the paper.
