Might explain the french house coming from your kids My First Sony

You remember Kid Pix? The early MacPaint for kids bitmap editor created by Craig Hickman in 1989 sealed and delivered grade schooler's ADD right in the classroom. A new program, with the same useless features as Kid Pix, is free on Hickman's site. Beautiful Dorena allows you to paint with an attached webcam and create cellular automata. And just to drive home the crazy, each brush has it's own four to the floor dance track. For OS X.

This guy's fake right? His bio seems meticulously "fun" for a Korean War veteran and recluse painter.

Kid Pix is awesome. My dad still uses the Mac we got in April 1989 (crazy, eh) and every now and then, I turn it on and play around with Kid Pix...I'll definitely have to checkout Beautiful Dorena.

That's Engelmenn's dissertation on his JB Childers character -- Engelmenn is a VCU MFA grad.
