Another quickie for today because, well, it’s just been that kind of life lately.
It occurs to me that most art is simply the act of finding something so beautiful/powerful/transcendent/important within yourself you have no choice but to share it with the rest of the world, and in doing so, transform a bit of it. Like I said in a song once, it’s loving what you have so much you have to give it all away.
And some art is simply the act of filling your own world so thoroughly with the products of your own imagination that it starts to leak out onto unsuspecting passers-by.
It really gets interesting when the two collide.
Peace, beautiful people.
P.S. NONE of what I wrote up there explains why on earth I thought this was the epitome of genius for five minutes when I was 16.
So wow, did I ever have a wild weekend. With the intention of meeting up with lots and lots of old friends, I went from church to the Cinco De Mayo festival downtown to the Denver Art Museum to Mad Greens to a very gay bar to a slightly less gay bar to my favorite jazz club into an extremely unfruitful midnight search for brownies to the shower at my grandma’s house to a different church to Popeye’s Chicken to an extremely awkward family gathering.
It was very weird.
Thing the first; Remember the soul singing wannabe whose Blair Witch-style video I posted about back in July? Well, apparently, she’s read my(and several other people’s) blog wondering what her deal is…and her response is…um…interesting…(Warning; extremely bad language…)
Well Alrighty Then.
Thing the second; I haven’t written a blog for quite a while now. There’s a few reasons why.
Number one; I forgot the password and hadn’t bothered e-mailing for a new one yet, figuring that sooner or later, I’d remember the old one. Lo and behold, I did. Unfortunately, it’s later rather than sooner.
Reason number two; I’ve moved, and don’t have internet access where I’m living now.
Reason number three; general malaise. Life is pretty good, I just haven’t been feeling that great. I’ve had an extended case of the blues that occasionally deepens to a nice navy hue that makes it difficult to see past my own nose, never mind the route to the computer.
In any case, I’m sorta back blogging regularly again now. I just don’t have much that’s coherent to say.
Moving on…I’ve been really into strong visual images and ideas lately. While most of my creative energy is expressing in the forms of word and sound lately, I have a deep appreciation for the visual as well. And to me, this music video is one of the best mixtures of the three…
