July 8 - I made a little flyer for my zine. Well, I have a draft done. I need to redraw it now a little less sloppily and then scan it. The best part of this was that it inspired me to move my zine off of my regular blog and set up a new blog for zine and writing stuff,…

Sayings of Eddie Art (on the state of the arts)

Sayings of Eddie Art (on the state of the arts)

State of the Arts: Decades of blandness and hype



When music starts opposing what rock has become instead of falling into it’s generic molds, then it’ll be exciting again. (and i’ll be impressed.)



Auto tune does for music what photography did for art.



Bar Name: Moonlight Over The City



There is a difference in the arts, between new and exciting and old and redundant.

IZM 2013 Progress

My housemates and I had friends over on July 4th for basically the entire day so I fell a day behind. It's OK though, I'm sure I'll catch up - I can tell you're worried.

Listen to my Warning (Kid's poem)

Listen to my warning (kid’s poem)

Listen to my warning -
the TRUTH this time.

If you slide down the bannister
that floor at the bottom
falls away and you
drop like a stone
to a dark monster’s cave.
Then since you’re gone
the trap closes shut
and no one misses you ….

so listen to your MOM!
