Sometimes I Wish... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

sometimes i wish you were around me,
because you listened
sometimes i wish you were here,
to look at me with empty eyes

sometimes i wish you were inside,
to quell the daily
sometimes i wish,
you never left 


this christmas theres not hippotopmesses
but within your face im simply missenes
the one
the feeling 
the you that i witness

so simple the looks are
of yours that make me

so amazining the ways i feel
sometimes when you are, just you

with closed eyes I feel you
escape never please upon they open

i watched you sleep last christmas
it kills me now to see you not

Beating Deep Inside... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

beating deep inside me
lays an empty heart with you gone
now only with memory
i must go on


i remember every embrace
and every smile that lit up your face
not one moment goes by
without you


so many days have lingered on
with only me singing you this song
hoping you would come to see
what you mean to me


no matter if i say i do
i know you're gone and we're through
still my heart calls for you
it's true


does the heart lie or is it dumb
or just something that misses someone
can you tell me baby
what to see


tell my heart we are through
tell it that it means not to you
cant you see who i am
a loving man


still no words can i combine
even though i still seek to find
to define what you meant to me
all of me


never will this heart of mine
rest easy without you by my side
just sleepless nights abound
with you not around


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

So Much Time... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

So much time has passed between us
So many things to make us furious
Yet through it all my heart still gives
And no matter what inside you'll live


While we both know that its true
I lost myself while holding onto you
Everytime you said just wait patiently
I held my breath in hopes we'd be


I dont know what to make of all this
You were the one for which I've wished
These dreams now I know wont ever be
But I wanted so badly, you and me


I dont know all about you
But I so wanted to
You became my hopes and you filled my dreams
The one who fit so perfectly


Never in my life have I slept so well,
Then next to you where ever we fell,
I whispered to the camera I'd marry you,
something I wished one day to come true,


I should have followed my heart
Back when this whole thing did start
I could say maybes all damn day
But in the end a choice you made


I think back and cant believe
All the things I did to you baby
Mend them all I know that I cant
I tried so hard and you know that


I wish the scars that we both share
Weren't from the pain we both did bear
Take it all away I'd die to do
And by now you must know it's true...


I remember every embrace,
I recall all the smiles upon your face,
I can see the way you'd look at me,
So many memories go on endlessly...



I felt so sure that I'd found the one... But what was once...is now..undone... 

by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

You Know That... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

you know that i am for real
with our first kiss you did feel
so incredible was every look
from the first thats all it took
with one breath you filled me
with more than i ever could see
simple words are all that come
because never did i meet the one
speechless for once i've become
not until you did i feel i should run
as you came to light i felt fright
because everything in you was so right
lost i became in your presence
and with that i became a nuisance
me i was not with you by my side
only hoped that it would soon subside
i cannot describe what you've done
say can i only that you are my sun 


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

Silence Broken Only... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

silence broken only with your chant
never to your body will mine say can't


slowly tracing your curves are my lips
from your body i take countless sips


your fingers travel gently through my hair
as mine discover what you like where


sleep this night will both of us never
just sweat and motion wrapped in pleasure


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

Why Did You... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

why did you have to go
and leave my heart so cold

for you i hope and pray
to come back to me someday

i know you care for me
but your life it is not free

never will my heart change
forever in my heart youll stay

can someone tell me why
life can be so cold and dry

tell me why it hurts so bad
when you left me here so sad

my heart just aches for you
such a beauty thru and thru

my arms never got to know
how you felt if we were close

your touch is just a dream
i want it so bad to be

the tears while i sit alone
so fresh but they grow cold

i know that with each day
your memory will slowly fade

but always will you be with me
held so close, just never to be

Let Me Wrap... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

let me wrap you in a serpent kiss
entwining your ankles and tracing your hips


behind your knees, my lips never forget
no place does my tongue leave unquenched


smooth satin skin indeed you are pleasure

skin swept kisses from around your neck
end up in places that arch your back


your bodys wishes i am this night a slave
nothing by morning will we let be saved

by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

The Town Is... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

the nights all ours, lets set ourselves free

she and i touched


wonder if she knows that
she already touched me

The Autumn Air... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

the autumn air is now filled only with you,
not much do i know, but feel for you i do,


where to direct this feeling i have inside,
silently waiting for only you to arrive,


with just your whisper my heart would sing,
to only yours does mine wish to cling,


dreams of you cast so far beyond measure,
with you in every one, infinite treasure,


even if wander i must without ever your kiss,
forever you will remain, as my hearts, last wish.


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

What I See... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

what i see, is danger
danger to my heart, danger is what i sought,
infinite temptation
hazard.

sexy is what i see, beauty unparalleled, un...believable,
simply stunned
mmmm.


what do i do, what should i do, what did i do,
listen
quiet.


deep breath, silent wisper, utter no...thing,
my reflection
her eyes.


how do i, what do i, woooo...hmm, i
should do
nothing.


whether i do, whether i die, with or without,
remain still
desire.


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

Driven Into Silence... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

driven into silence my wishes are
another moment spent, one and another

simple torment is thinking of you
thoughts of your kisses, a potent brew

time gliding by, every second an hour
what would i do if i had the power

just a quiet fire raging alone
a day goes another, where did she go

so many questions everyday fill my head
reviewing every second everything that you said

amazing how blind our hearts can be
when all but wishes they refuse to see

soon a moment much like another
will uncomfortably pass without this other

this one who so suddenly swung into my life
only to exit without a goodnight


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

The Endless Parade... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

the endless parade goes on through
while the only one to matter is you

in step and in line with them all
watch my eyes as i begin to fall

an unknown princess of bright light
shinning on me is her every sight

feeling unable to move from this view
within the fever grows that you sew

every step she takes calls to me
every motion from her sweet purity

with your calm gaze cast i shake
closer to my face is all i wish to make

like soft silk and rain she envelopes me
touching just enough to allow me to see

her intoxicating nectar so abound
sleep could i never where she is found

passing through my heart with such ease
aware is she of every touch to please

simply breathless when in her very midst
addicted to forever, left a simple wish


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

Having Tasted The... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

having tasted the treasures of your kiss
left to expect, yet you remain only a wish

looking over my shoulder to before you
seems like hell, why did i have to meet you

stung by your gaze, im left with nothing
just taunting memories of the sweetest being

how to quench the ache within me
to what end is your memory

forever inside your haunt remains
churning my heart with elusive pain

how i yearn for the simplest touch
yet anything from you is simply too much

strive to block these feelings i do
not even begun and yet it is through

silently tearing into my heart
is time for me, while we are apart

erase from me your face so pure
for without you i can no longer endure

someone from me, take this memory so sweet
for with it i fear, never again shall i sleep


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

Teach Me You... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

teach me your ways solitary moon
teach me the secrets of sitting alone

teach me to forget those lost in the fray
teach me to ask never my love to stay

teach me to forgive my tormentors abound
teach me to seek what it is i need found

teach me to tell not what i feel inside
teach me to leave behind all my pride

teach me to temper my feelings with logic
teach me to know that love is just magic

teach me to feel no longer this pain
teach me to how to keep from going insane


by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

I Sense From... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints



i sense from your silence there is discontent
not sure where to wander, questions never relent



a thought turns to wish this day as another
goes on without you, my long distant lover



ferried through waters of hells cast absurd
exchanging each memory for deep soul felt burn



with continued existence my cage in lifes furrow
my solace is found, with every tomarrow



for as my heart yearns for your every touch
each passing moment, another memory, turns to dust

The Maybes Never... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints



the maybes never end
when i think of you
the night that we met
i thought maybe theres a chance

maybe with your hands
i could make anything
with our hearts entwined
i thought maybe we would dance

maybe if you knew me
i'd be your everything
if you could feel my love
our hearts maybe to one would blend

even after all this time
the maybes continue to fall
but maybe with you
the thoughts of maybe would end

Often Wonder Casts... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints






often wonder casts its gaze upon me

a rich interlude forever to be missed

a potential forever lost as i just sit


sweet therapy now exchanged for affliction
just memories left to fulfill my addiction

Upon Eternitys Wings... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints



upon eternitys wings i fly
restraint never to be seen

my wail calls to conjure
precious pure evergreen

this nameless angel of splendor
face to face i seek to reside

drunk with her shadow and light
dispense never this sleep state

with but her scented kiss to guide
upon eternitys wings i continue to fly

In Her Quest... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints



in her quest for a gentle quiet side by the sea
she finds an ever melting pale moon light

showering her through a bed of floating cotton
is the caressing gentle rain of dreams and shadow

the delicate fingers of a future untold whispers over her face
dancing with her hair to the symphony of life

her silent gaze matched only by the stars
twinkle with crystalline pure elegance piercing the night

to these patrons flow from her the tide of a saline kiss
rich within each sacred tear lie the dreams of a lonely wish

the elemental silence broken only by her shimmering jewels
as they fall to the ground one by one unheld by warm hands

though cast silent and unknown a spell of dreams to her plight
endowed she is from the angels that call to her with a single wish

to ever so slowly, so gently, press upon her lips,
a single, soft, genuine goodnight kiss.

The Circus of... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs - Heart Complaints

The circus of shadows has come, 

All that was good or pure is now undone, 

Say goodbye to your world and hello to him, 

The mesiah of lies and pain, refined sin, 

Rip will he of your sacred holdings, 

To leave you with only burning feelings, 

Pain, remorse these are just a few, 

Of your thoughts, the thoughts that ensue, 

After you dead and gone, 

He will simply carry on, 

To create the chaos, to reveal the pain, 

But even as you hate him, 

You shall go and do the same.

You Are So... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs [Heart Complaints]

You are so beautiful to me,
You are in every way what I wished you to be,

You are so beautiful to me,
You are the perfect one, can't you see,

You are so beautiful to me,
Only loving you makes life worth it to me,

You are so beautiful to me,
No other curves but yours do I wish to study,

You are so beautiful to me,
And just for your smile, I'd walk eternally,

You are so beautiful to me,
The way sun dances in your eyes, and you set it all free,

You are so beautiful to me,
Since the day I first saw you, I love it baby,

You are so beautiful to me,
You always make my heart race, when you look at me,

You are so beautiful to me,
Only with you is my soul complete,

You are so beautiful to me,
For you my love goes on endlessly,

You are so beautiful to me,
I pray for just one chance, to show what you mean to me,

You are so beautiful to me,
No one else on this earth, for with was I meant to be,

You are so beautiful to me,
I love everything about you, that's the truth baby,

You are so beautiful to me,
You've always been the the woman in my dreams,

You are so beautiful to me,
Always, always, my precious baby.

Every Morning I... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs [Heart Complaints]

Every morning I wake and I don't see you there,
I cry to myself and I wonder just where,

Where's my baby gone, why has she gone away,
With you not here, you can't hear me say,

I love you so much, and I wanna hold you so tight, 
Forever and ever through the days and the nights,

Never sadness or pain, will I bring to you,
Can't you see baby what I'm going through,

Everyday that goes by, with you not around,
I wonder where the love of my life could be found,

Is she together with someone or is she alone,
Is someone holding her tightly while I'm all alone,

I've said it before and I'll say it again,
You were not just my lover, you were my best friend,

On the first night I met, you made me feel calm,
And somehow I knew that we just couldn't be wrong,

That first week, when we were apart,
I knew I had found the Queen of my heart,

You have always been the one, the one for me,
And I just hope baby, that you'll listen to me.

-Nathaniel Adam Briggs-

Beauty to me... by Nathaniel Adam Briggs [Heart Complaints]

Beauty to me is what we used be,
And that wonderful smile that you shared,

When I made you laugh, oh I want it all back, 
So that I can show you how I care, 

All the sweet memories and the waiting to see, 
The most beautiful girl in the world, 

Fill my everyday as I hope and I pray, 
That one day I can show to you girl, 

That you mean everything, you're the summer and spring, 
You're in every way my true destiny, 

A future together for ever and ever, 
The happiest man I would be, 

The most beautiful babies and no it's not maybe, 
Together we would always have,

With your wonderful smarts and a touch of my art, 
An army of beauty we would have, 

I'll always think of you, so much I adore you, 
Such a wonderful life we could have, 

With one single chance, I'll show true romance, 
As God is my witness, Forever my princess.

I 10 on any Given Day by Nathaniel Adam Briggs

OK, so why is it that the I10 going to Santa Monica has to be a parking lot?  It never moves!  No public transportation?  Arg!

Just a train? Perhaps?  Maybe double-decker the road?

Value-Based Web Presence by Nathaniel Adam Briggs


What is your web presence doing for your business? Is it producing financial reward? ROI?
I’ve been in this business for over 15 years, and throughout that time I’ve seen a lot of snake oil sales, and empty promises when it comes to “internet solutions”.  Keywords, Search Engine Rankings, Guaranteed Hits, SEO – yadda yadda.  I’ve seen & heard it all.
Let me let you in on a secret no one will tell you. If your Web Presence is created properly, much of the above should be included.

So what is a Web Presence? (how’s this different from a Web Site?)
Web Presence” is the proper manner in which to review your integration within the Internet. Your “Web Site” is simply a core component, and it can take many different shapes depending on your businesses required needs at the time.
  • Are you building strong ties with your customers?
  • Is your Web Presence providing value or is it simply another bill you pay each month?
A Web Presence is a holistic / high-level view of how your company is integrated with the ENTIRE INTERNET.  It is defined by the manner in which you connect with Customers.  How you build Brand Loyalty.  How you are viewed.  How you gain New Customers.
It is a whole host of different components that all are custom fit, and managed to create VALUE for your business.
Simply Put.  “If you build it, they will come” does NOT work.
If your Web Services provider didn’t review your business model, business plan, advise you on it in terms of the web, or by default include integration with Social Media / Networking Platforms (Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, Hi5, Yelp, Google, Twitter…), then you likely got sold a web site, and now you’re sitting on a nice (hopefully) piece of eDesign that likely will provide you will nothing more than a place to send people on the web.
Web Site design houses are all over the place.  Some create design looking sites.  But do they provide Return On Investment?  I’m not here to talk bad about anyone, I’m just a realist with over 15 years in the business of seeing every pitch you can imagine.  I’ve never sat down with a client that with all things set equal, chose “pretty” over “performance”.
Unless your Web Presence is value-based, and crafted with ROI in mind with specific milestones / goals.  Then you are basically getting fit with a wooden clog when readying for a 10K run.  The shoe does not fit.  The solution does not fit.  You are MISSING bottom line value.  Period.
syntheticMagic Advanced Business Services provides full consulting starting from the base level of what your business is, what it does, where it plans to go, and devises custom fit solutions that build your Web Presence…not just a Web Site.  Anyone can build you a “Web Site” – it takes strategy, and experience to build Value-Based Web Presence.
At syntheticMagic Advanced Business Services, we’re actively seeking Phoenix, Arizona companies needing Web Design, Development, Social Media Integration, and most importantly – a Value Based Web Presence.
I want to talk to you!  I’ve been known to give free expert advise… so call me on the horn.

Social Marketing & Web Presence by Nathaniel Adam Briggs


Social Networking. We’ve all heard about it, but what is it really, and how does it relate to you?
Social Networking in basic form is the concept of Internet powered social inter-connectivity.  Platforms like MySpace, Facebook, Bebo, Imeem, Hi5, Classmates, and
a very long list of others comprise a large population of daily users that meet to connect, learn, and explore with one another.  Users utilize communication methods
like Instant messaging, eMail, Wall Sharing, and Comments to communicate, and of course there is the “Friending” (the networking portion).
“Friending” is when you ask to be “friends” with someone else (or they ask you).  On acceptance, your personal social network has just been increased.  Now imagine 500 contacts/friends, or 10,000.  If you post information on your wall, you have a potential maximum audience of all those users within your contact/friends list.
At a high-level, Social Networking allows individuals or corporations to grow close ties to their customers, and build new ones.  Building ties with customers via standard off-line methods can be costly, and time consuming.  Social Networking using the web today evens the playing field in many respects – cost being one of them.
If you are interested in growing your own personal network of friends, then Social Networking (also referred to as social media) may be something of interest to you.
If you are a business seeking to do more business, then Social Networking is most certainly of interest to you.  Less expensive marketing, and customer base increase potential are two very obvious, and value oriented potential paybacks by getting property involved in Social Networking.

Value-Based Web Presence & Social Networking
The Internet boom of the 90s showed a wide range of uses for the internet, however the primary fault, and subsequent reason for the boom turning into bust was because so many developments, and business models were not seated with actual performance.  In basic terms, they didn’t make any money.  They were not value-based.
Today the Internet landscape involves a tremendous amount of inter-connectivity. Connecting an account from one Social Media Platform to another (Facebook to Twitter, etc).  This interconnectivity helps brings together people from the various platforms, and communication delivery methods which if operated properly, can produce a tremendous amount of bottom-line / ROI value.
Each day with our multiple web accounts, social networking pages, and blogs, we all are building what is called “Web Presence”.  A web site for example is simply one component of the Web Presence.
When strategically organized into a direction based effort (leveraging social media), Social Networking / Media, Web Site(s), Reviews, etc all can help build a very powerful Web Presence.
Adding it All Up
Social Media, Social Networking, Web 2.0 – all of these more of less refer to the same movement which is the digitizing of human communication.  There are many flavors, and even more specific features per platform, however they all have a place in value-based web presence creation, and should be explored for individuals, and corporations seeking to gain an edge on their competition, expand customer relations, or just get started with very little marketing capital expense.

How To Select a Contractor 101 by Nathaniel Adam Briggs



Your project is a part of you, it’s your baby! So when evaluating potential contractors look for signs they understand this because that’s an indicator of quality, and customer service.
Cuz, it’s YOUR baby!
No one expects bad results, or poor communication.  We by nature have the best intentions, however if this always was the end result, the world would just be a different place. Right?
So, prepare a basic check list of items when reviewing contractor candidates:
1. Did they ask a full spectrum of Why, When, What, etc?
2. Did they mention Customer Service at all?
3. Did they communicate concisely HOW they can help you AFTER you spill the beans?
4. Did they talk about return customers?
5. Do they have a plan beyond the initial conversation to gain details of your project? Is it concise?

My late grandfather long ago told me, “Son, the biggest problem in the world is communication.”  At the age of 16 it meant very little to me, but at 37 I completely understand the experience, and wisdom that comment embodied.  Communication is required for both you, and the contractor to be on the same page, otherwise your “baby” may come out with three arms or worse, one.
Taking it a step further, the substance of that communication is an indicator of their project handling, and organization.  If they this is not their first rodeo, they have worked out methods of obtaining information concisely to ensure the handling of your project will be as smooth as possible.
You should feel as though the contractor is holding your project with the same care as you do.  Any feeling less than that will certainly be a ripple now that becomes a wave later one.

Maya Collared Cloth Shirts by Nathaniel Adam Briggs

** AUTHORED IN 1999-2000 **
 


Build the curve cage of co-planar with the vertices snapped to each other respective end.
* Expiriment outside of this exercise with different types of curves for more detail and shaping of panels

 



Build the shirt cage.
Note the shirt was built symmetrically so mirroring was a fast process.

 



Build the collar portion.

 



Here both are placed together in the scene.

 



To create panels for the proceeding the garment, we select a nSided cage and select [Create Panel]

When starting the seaming process, begin by choose a start panel and select [Create Garment]

 



Then Seam the panels to one another, creating a seamless mesh

* Note: By switching the Surfaces Pick Mask to the off position, selection issues are alleviated.

 



Complete the seaming of the collar first...
Attach to the shirt neck regions.

* Note: If you get twisted seams, backup and re-examine your seam work flow.

 



Here you can see a partial seaming.

 



The completed garment.

 



To build the sleeve fringes, enable History and select the cloth edges and execute the crvOnPoly.mel script.
Select degree 3 and a curve with history relations to the cloth edges is created.
Built a profile spline, translate this to the initial curve point and Extrude with the settings shown.

 



The completed garment with sleeve and edge fringes.

 



The final garment shielding "Jackie" from the elements... is motion tested for a look at the deformation
