This is certainly not what you expected:

Hello to all you readers, from wherever, I would hope you are all happy and Well, But reality enters the situation once more, so I’ll just say maybe we’ll all be much better tomorrow.  I came upon some truly disconcerting crap last week that I’d like to think was just nasty  rumors. But the first was all too real and will be difficult to explain; however I’ll give it a try any way. I was going through my newest Microsoft Surface  Pro 4, when I noticed a set of two sort of dark yellow papers with some mysterious writing on it. On the right page was a circular emblem I am remembering they had  a mythological look to them, but they might have been characters from one of those stupid games. I can’t remember too much about the one on the left but I think it  was written stuff about being positive. But it was no doubt one of those subliminal (slip it into your consciousness upon occasion.)

When I got the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 I had agreed to be part of a group of people they were trying to change our behavior, or attitude. But this was the Surface Pro 4 so they were still trying to do something of a psychological nature. Although I  was not part of the Explorer program anymore. Well, that doesn’t seem like such a big deal now, at the time I was disturbed. AS I am not too pleased to have my brain exchanged.

This is the more problematic situation. I was told that to have my painting on “Lady of the Highway,” on the record cover it  had to be part of the “creative commons” organization. Search this on Wikipediai:CreativeCommons. Basically this means any one can use this “CC’ image for any purpose  be it to make money or whatever other reason if they desire to do so. But there is a whole group of applicable rules to this. One of those rules where no one is allowed to deface or degrade the image; an example that I had to deal with : Some comedic individual thought it would be amusing to put the face of a dead cat on “The Lady of the Highway.” So, having broken those rules, I was upset enough to Call Amazon, where they were selling copies of this image with and without  the dead cat face.  It was my right to put a stop to this as the Artist.  However, then I go back and see what they are selling. No more Lady of the Highways (they listed it ,but said something to the effect as- ‘due to some problem they could not sell this’).  However. they decided to sell copies of ” The Dust Mite Diary” Which was NOT OFFERED UP AS A CREATIVE COMMONS work. Not only that but I did not notice they were paying me anything for any of my work and it was not their right to sell this. I worked long and hard on this one, I was thinking of offering them up as very elegant note cards of some thing. My Point here is They (?) are all out to use you so watch out. And Amazon; follow the rules, the only Creative Commons work I have is’ Lady of the Highway’, which you may sell, but not the one with the dead cat face. All of the other works are off limits.

OK, then; This is the big one I was told that Microsoft sold my Trade Marked Domain name “KayBuena” to a Movie producer.  This I really hope is the nasty rumored one but when I get this cleared up I will give notice of a change, because this is almost enough to pack it in, hire a really slick lawyer, and sue the world. Shut down my site. And take the next flight outa’ here.
