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.
After my brief and unwarrantedly self-congratulatory 50th post, I figure it’s well past time for some more shameless self promotion.
Have I ever mentioned that I sing for a band? That band is Delta Buoy…and the player below will introduce you to our sound…
Tell me what you think in the comments…
50 posts, wow.
So on June 16, 2007, I started this blog. Totally a vanity project, and still is. Originally, it was a myspace blog, just for random observations and such. Myspace began to get a little juvenile, so I moved over here–coincidentally, just in time for me to make a massive intercontinental move, lose the whole world and gain my soul, and further entertain the handful of folks…mostly from the Denver arts scene and the nappturality.com forums…who were at the time following me around the internet.
Now, I mostly use it as a repository for random thoughts here and there…I literally do nothing to promote or publicize this blog, and never have but hey! we have 10,568 views! Thanks, everybody!
Life has changed a lot for me over the past four years…I’ll probably blog about it at length another time. But, in a nutshell…I’ve opened up a shop here. I’ve started studying here. I make music with Delta Buoy. I don’t do the whole happy Christian dogoodnik act anymore. And I’m just as random as I ever was.
Less meandering after the jump…or more, depending on your point of view…
I’m thinking of writing another book. The title would be Christians Are Weird( yes, that means you too).
I’d push for this photo as cover art:
But I think I’ll hold off on that until I can write such a thing with love. Then again, maybe not. I’m pretty sure a book like that would get *published*.
In other news, I’ve been gigging with some friends under the title Delta Buoy Collective…I haven’t shouted myself out in a minute but our myspace is here.
In other other news…y’all who pray…pray for a sista. Please. Thanks.
