It was my birthday last week and I could not stop celebrating. To put an end to the occasion, I just have these few remarks:
On turning 17 again.
I promise to obsess ever diligently, more than before if possible. I promise to veer closer to the edge of inanity. I will keep pouring over the image of man, many of them with visibly large dicks, but its not important. I want to be demented. I promise awkwardness and increasing instability if ever I happen to cross some slick possessor in the flesh. Behold! Composure dashed like pottery on marble steps. Rebuilding, refashioning. Doing it again. Cliche as a preordained condition for services rendered. Please God mold thy servant. This insipid filth I've been peddling, may I peddle it further? and may it one day burn super brilliantly in hell.

Hey nerds. I'll post an update for your wandering eyes to glance at. I've been a tad busy.. first of all I work now, which is a major life adjustment. For those of you who work, I salute you. It really does eat up a lot of time. Gosh, I'd estimate about 40 hours a week.
Even so, there is much fun. Memorial Day was a couple of weekends ago and it was just lovely. I was piss drunk starting from about 11am on, drinking French wine in Christian Dior out of on the veranda while nearly expired veterans marched by firing blanks, as well as scads of Shriners moving along in those hilariously small toy cars. There are some pictures from the household holiday observance below.
Then, what was it. Oh yes, I am showing work in a great big group show in New York called Mixed Messages, organized by the amazing Visual AIDS group. John Chaich curated, and there are 40 or so artists participating. Its a really wonderful show of text works, with much content and a sympathetic point of view. Its truthfully very humbling and a tad too real to be included in a show with so many artists that I admire. I am very grateful for the experience.
