Also I’m working on a new en devour of learning to steal. Not physical theft which would land my ass in some jail time, but the other more accepted kind of stealing of intellectual. See a friend of mine posted up this link to this really good article and what caught my eye was ‘How To Steal Like An Artist (And 9 Other Things Nobody Told Me)‘, and Mr fellow artist Austin Kleon (who also has this Newspaper Blackout thingie he does). Anyways, in the spirit of stealing like an artist, I’m basically telling you all about it like I’ve found Hesus who was hiding behind the gardening shed instead of work on the second coming of my garden. And also I plan to follow some of the things he happens to say since they are good ideas. And I’m an artist in need of ideas. And more money.
Not fully sure what I will be stealing / borrowing / being inspired by, but I am a resourceful fellow (in my mind for sure, practice maybe not so much) so I should not be in want for ideas much longer. There are some nice graphic design books at work I plan to gander through and see what’s in them. I still want to do the projects I’ve outlines before in a previous post as well as continue on with my time-lapse project (which I have yet another idea and several locations for). I still think one of my bigger challenges in doing my projects is doing it alone / on my own. More than likely an ego / Ozymandias thing, but I think I get bothered not being able to really talk to someone face to face about what I want to do and the feedback that comes from small talk like that.
Other odd developments have been in relation to my love-life and romance, which are going fantastical. Some things have been highly unexpected, but I’m not going to hate. Hell, even the weather has been odd and fantastical, turning from near 20 degree weather to snow. So I shall count my fortunes and be happy with what’s happened as complaints will get me no where. I am also doing my manly best to cook for myself more in attempts to also impress the lady folk who can’t resist a man who cooks and speaks well of food. Nothing scientific to back this claim, but I will not be deterred from believing it to be true.
And in tragic news, my Skullcandy TI headphones lie in ruins. I completely fucked up the arm band (cracking it in half) and instead of doing the smart thing after fixing it the first time and leaving it alone, I did the dumb thing and made it worse by breaking the crack and severing the wires. Thankfully I’ve managed to get two replacement pairs for cheap via ebay, but I had to ship them to a friend in the US who will redirect them to me. In the mean time I got a pair of GIs which I’m renting from Best Buy (return policy FUCK YEAH), so a review of those is on its way into my blog soon. Other than that, I only await some warmer weather to help me out and work hard stealing me some art.
