DIY it already

IMG_1071
i've had this blasted canvas hanging around forever, just taking up space.  it's just weirdo drips of paint i did with a chopstick one day.  brian meares has no time for my attempts at artwork, so he was happy to see it leave the house yesterday.  little did he know - i had bigger plans in store for it.

IMG_1116
this is about the simplest DIY ever -- i'll go through it step by step just because the pictures are pretty, but i realize yal aren't fools, so sorry if this seems pedantic.

IMG_1075
canvas with something going on already, neon spray paint, scissors, some scrap paper, double sided tape and a marker should do it.

IMG_1079
quickly sketch out your letters on paper - it doesn't have to be perfect because you're going to cut around them

IMG_1080
that's what cutting looks like, in case you're international

IMG_1094
tape each letter down - don't think you'll be clever and skip this step because the spray paint will blow the paper up and you'll ruin the whole thing.  you'll never forgive yourself.

hold the spray paint directly above each letter as you spray down, not across
IMG_1107

just get about an inch or so out from the edges.
IMG_1101

IMG_1110
there's the whole shebang painted - then just lift the paper up to reveal your reverse graffiti stylez!

sort of fresh princey, don't you think?

The natural rate of interest, as conceived by Wicksell, is the rate that results in stable prices (or in the neo-Wicksellian version, a stable inflation rate without cyclical unemployment). If price and wage adjustment were instantaneous and the money supply known in advance, presumably the actual interest rate would equal the natural rate without active policy. If prices and wages are sticky, then active policy has to offset changes in money demand to make the actual interest rate equal the natural rate.untethered jailbreak ios 7
