Getting back + sharing is caring.

I'm back from my trip. Currently trying to put my house back together as now a boatload of inherited things are now sitting in my studio which is also technically the living room of my tiny house.

diarrhea glitter or, thoughts on art

What do people expect from art anyway? I've been on a mental digestive tract for a few days now. Mulling over ideas, shitting them out, consuming them again and excreting them from my mental pores.

The presence of the the other

I've been listening to lots of videos of and about George Carlin today. What I'd like to talk about is this video especially where Louis C.K. honors Carlin (skip to the 3 minute mark if you want to jump to). What interests me is the creative process that's revealed here. I've always been interested and... Continue Reading →
