About

This is what it could look like when one completely deconstructs a life as one knows it, and how to build from the ground up. Alternatively, this is a fresh look at an old story. The fine art of falling apart.

35 times

One of the things that annoys me the most about myself is that none of my ideas feel like my own. I'm inspired by music, other's artwork, a conversation, a long drive in the middle of Northern Ontario with music blaring and cigarettes burning. Living inside my head is so murky, most of the time.

Yes, back to topic. That's the thing that annoys me the most. I feel unoriginal, pretty much all of the time. Except maybe when I'm painting.

New topic. I took the boys for a ride today, Marble found a piece of forgotten rawhide in the car and spent the entire journey guarding it from Buckley. We're in my bed now, while it snows outside. I'm half watching Eternal Sunshine etc, and writing out an entry. It seems so long ago that I felt the need to update. It must have been a Blurty thing. Miss Blurty.

35 entries here. Feels like 10 or so. Not even half as much as I've listened to some albums. I think it's something like 3 more days of this sort of isolation, before I head to London and maybe back to my 'old' life.

G, you're not all 'there'. I know, I say, I've left pieces of myself all over the place. Close my eyes and forget what's there.

I'm so dramatic.

p.s E, go read someone else's journal. You're dead to me.

    I know what you mean. I find that it's fairly difficult to come up with a genuinely unique idea, but even though an idea may not be entirely ours, we still manage to add our own personal twist on it. There's nothing wrong with being inspired by someone else's work. It's the little bit of yourself that you incorporate into your art that does make it original. top

    The Boys? Since when? E-mail me.

    P.S: Sounds like you got spammed. Destroy #1 message (not acrotide's--just a piece of advice). top

    Not those boys, dad. I was talking about Marble and Buckley.

    I didn't get spammed, not really. It's just someone trying to make a point, when they can't possibly understand that I couldn't care less.

    Thanks, Bill. I was wondering if you lived through the weekend. top
