We live in a world overrun by tourists
Tourists - 89 flowers on their back
Inventors of the Accu-Jack
They look at life through a pocket camera
What? No flash again?
They're all a bunch of double drags
Who teach their kids that love is bad
Half of the staff of their brain is on vacation
Mama, are U listening?
We need a new breed - Leaders, stand up, organize ... yeah!
Don't let your children watch television until they know how 2 read
Or else all they'll know how 2 do is cuss, fight and breed

I've been doing alot of this lately. This and working. And I suppose a fair amount of drinking. But more working and this. I feel like life is winding down after my whirlwind December/Christmas/New Years/Early January. I've had enough down time to start making my down time productive and enjoyable. I'm finishing a book I've probably been reading since...it's embarassing, so never mind. I'm excited to be done with it and use that fresh space in my guilty reading concious to re-read some of my photo history books. A friend is also loaning me the "Just Kids" Patti Smith book, which I'm sure I'll fly through given it's photo history connection. I also want to hit "Art & Fear" back up. I've been feeling like I could use a go at it again lately. I feel greatly unmotivated to produce work by the insanity of the MFA gallery scene here. It feels like unless you study under the darlings, the darlings will never let you in their galleries. Or, perhaps they might, but how the hell they are ever going to see your work to even think about it...? Why in your MFA crit. of course....! Sorry to end on a seemingly negative note. Here's better. This is a hold over. Borrowing a friends D-90. Will produce newish digi things now-soon.

Happy New Year.
Time sure does fly eh? Apologies for time away from this little slice of the internet lately. I have been having some of my best friends in the world in and out and in and out of my life like a whirlwind for the past 3-4 weeks. And so it continues on for another week or so. Though last year went out on quite an absurd note, as occurrences can sometimes be, this one seems off on a good foot. It seems full of kinetic energy. And I feel like taking more initiative to get things done. So here's to good friends and good feelings. I hope you are all feeling somewhat similar. Lets go balls deep on 2011!!
