The reason David Boreanaz is such a cool guy

But of course he climbed up the chair all by himself!Well, I haven’t met Mr. Boreanaz, and I don’t intend to. I don’t know that he really is cool, but that smidgen of faith in humanity tells me it’s likely he belongs to the percentage of people on Earth that wants nice things to happen to self and others.

Once I’ve gotten that point out of the way, I will say that I don’t have cable, nor do I want to have cable. Most programming is a tremendous waste of time, but I do like Bones. Or used to like it. I used to watch it obsessively, but after a certain episode the behavior of all characters began to annoy me tremendously, and I stopped watching it.

I do find forensic anthropology fascinating. Say you die, and I really hope you don’t, but let’s imagine you do. Say a giantess crushed you, and then she proceeded to hide your mortal coil in a place that made it difficult to find. It’s wonderful that there are people in this world qualified to tell many things about your remains if they happen to consist mostly (or completely) of your skeleton.

Then it might be possible to catch* the bad giantess that hid your body so that the flesh and [what they thought was] all evidence of foul play would disappear. Because ever since I can remember I have always loved it when the bad guy gets it. The bad guy getting his just desserts is the foundation for my childhood fantasy of being either a vampire or sniper or mercenary or contract killer.

David Boreanaz plays Seeley Booth in the show, and when I started watching the show I thought of finding material to create giantess (or shrunken men) collages of both actors, and found that there’s something about the way he poses and adjusts his body in front of the camera that winds up as Google image search results that I have been able to use in several collages. Obviously, that’s his mission in life. 🙄

  1. Well I’ve never seen “Bones”, so I cannot say for the coolness of the show or the cool actor guy you mention. But…I CAN say that you’ve shared with me some aspects of the show and the person whom it’s based upon in part…and in that respect…of what you’ve shared with me…it sounds to be indeed very interesting!

    The collage (Waiting) is wonderful as I’ve already discussed with you. The story *shhhh* you told me, between us, loving and beautiful. Your attention to detail in your crafting of this collage, always as I feel…right on the lofty summit of perfection. Shadowing, the setting, the elements put together with such care and detail so realistic. You do so create such realism, emotion and feeling in your art.

    And what you’ve shared with me about forensic anthropology is indeed intriguing. It’s amazing how science has evolved to the levels it has in terms of being able to solve hidden, unsolved mysteries, whether they be for crime investigation or of historical nature…as with things such as carbon dating, dna testing and other scientific researchical studies (is that a word?…I think not!)…well I’m venturing into territory I know nothing about. I agree with your sentiment though…it IS fascinating technology.

    And the second collage (Shy)…is beautiful as well. Loving and touching, romantic and you and I know of the beautiful story it tells. You have such wonderful artistic talent and I hope you’ll keep on bringing to such gorgeous life, the images and stories you think about!!

    Another absolutely wonderful post!

  2. Thank you!

    Forensic Anthropology is fascinating. While it pulsated behind my posting this entry, what I was thinking about while working on both collages had nothing to do with it, as you know.

    I never get tired of that story that unfolds while I’m tending to layers, applying filters, cutting off pixels, moving selections, doing all that takes me from point A to the point B of a finished image. There’s [almost] always the beginning of a love story, or a tale of lust, or an amusing event that takes place in a minute, hour, or day in the life of a man and a much taller woman that casts a wide shadow over him.

    The short story you wrote for “Shy” was phenomenal, but I’ve told you that before. 🙂
