Talents I Wish I Had

I wish I had some sort of artistic sense. If I could draw even a simple sketch that was beyond the sixth grade level, I’d be happy. When I was a little kid, my drawings were legendary. Stick people with gender: women had large circles drawn on their chest to differentiate them from their male counterpart stick figures. Men and women both had circles drawn for their knees, as well (usually as large as the women’s breasts).

I wish I had some sort of decent singing voice.

I wish I was a little more handy around the house.

I wish I had some sort of fiction chops, as I’d love to write a book, but have no creativity in that area.

I wouldn’t mind being able to see through walls, either. -ram

The more I learn about you, the more I feel we are alike. I always talk about how I wish I had some artistic abilities. I am still stuck at about a junior high level of talent, and don't talk to me about drawing.
I think I may have a decent voice, but if I don or don't no one has ever said anything about it to me. I just make sure not to sing when I'm around women I am dating!

I also wish I was a better artist. My dream job would be actually be working as a Tattoo Artist. Unfortunately my lack of talent will forever keep me from working in this field. Now granted there are tons of tattoo artists in the world who are utterly terrible, but who wants to be one of them.

Fred Durst was able to get Limp Biskit signed by doing tattoos for some of the guys in Korn. He told them he was really good. He admits he lied. I saw a picture of the work somewhere--He definitely lied about his level of talent, but hey it was enough for Korn to help him get signed.

Brant, I've heard that Civ is really good as well. Someone told me that he owns/owned his own shop. Daniel Higgs of Lungfish does tattoos as well he works out of Jinxproof in Georgetown (By appointment only). I love both Gorilla Biscuits and Lungfish and would love to have something done by each of those guys.

I would like to go into Civ's tattoo parlor and tell him that "I can't wait one minute more" to get a fresh inkspot.

I would like to go in and say: "You look really funny bald". Then he would beat the hell out of me and tattoo the word 'MORON' on my forehead.

I have always said that my superhero power would be the ability to shoot flaming evil squirrels out of the palms of my hands.

I don't think I've got the time to list all the talents I wish I had. :P
