Welcome...

...to Intimate Portrait: Reality TV.

Before you scroll yourself down any further, there are two things you should know:

1. Everyone you meet here is drawn from a real, living, breathing person...on my reality TV. Any remote resemblance to any real, living, breathing persons is not coincidental at all...it was fully intended.

2. I did not make these quotes up. Believe me, I wish I did.

This whole thing started because I was bored beyond belief at my previous job tape logging (generating audio/visual transcripts for every tape of footage shot for a reality show...for more information about tape logging and how to pursue a career in tape logging, please email me) for "The TurnAround," a small business makeover/improvement show that aired on CNN Saturday mornings during the spring fever of 2005.

While I was on a break from one of my relentless typing frenzies, I found myself so taken with the eye contact/dialogue chemistry between the '80s mustached small business owner (Ben Morey of Long Beach's finest: Morey Construction) and his big business mentor (Bruce Karatz of KB Homes) that I impulsively grabbed a yellow index card and drew an interpretation of the magic I saw on the TV screen...


...and I derived so much fun and fascination from this exercise that it turned into a compulsive habit that has extended into two other reality shows (Fit TV's "The Gym" and The Food Network's "Barbeque with Bobby Flay"), reaching the exhibit-like proportions you're about to enjoy.

If my wildest dreams come true and I'm not exaggerating your potential enjoyment of Intimate Portrait: Reality TV, please come back and visit often - or better yet, tell your friends, enemies, lovers, The New Yorker cartoon department, Garry Trudeau, Aaron McGruder, or anyone who might get the slightest kick out of my good friends down here.

I cannot end this overlong welcome segment without some thank yous. First of all, mad props to you for stopping by and making it this far. Mad special props to reality TV monarchs Weller and Grossman for employing me in their funhouse for such an extended period of time...and especially extra mad special props to everyone at Weller Grossman Productions who encouraged the continuation of this habit. You know who you are!

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

Amazing...so many comments on your site, but so many of them are spam...pisses you off, doesn't it?

I saw your link form my Cuzzin Ross's blog and thought I'd have a look. I think your drawings are really good. Everyone wishes, at some point, to be able to doodle caricatures of people around them, but you've got it down to an art. Way to go...I'll pop back now and then for an update...
