Taking a Break

This week I am off from classes. That means lots of nothing to do. I don't have a job. I do freelance design work when I can, aside than that, school keeps me very busy during the week. Its just those few days when there isn't anything I have to do, that I cannot get anything accomplished.

Today I went to my school's portfolio show. Everyone there had excellent work and I hope they all get a great job and find success. After that, my friend Casey and I went around killing time in Dallas. I went to Good Records and got two Jim O'Rourke (of Sonic Youth) albums. I can't stop listening to them. It's always great to inject music into your life of styles you don't normally listen to. 

There is a major stoner metal/doom metal show coming up in denton this weekend. I will be there and I will have copies of VOM.No.4 with me.
Here is a flyer I made for it: 

Right now I'm in the middle of three books:
Narcisa- by Jonathan Shaw
My Custom Van- by Michael Ian Black
and a very explanatory book on Nietzche called "Introducing Nietzche". There is a whole series of books entitled "introducing" that cover a ton of different subjects. They mix comic like illustrations with text, which in my opinion, makes it more memorable.

I've been listening to:
Jim O'Rourke- Eureka
Jim O'Rourke- Insignificance 
Young Widows- Old Wounds
Pygmy Lush- Mount Hope
Isis- Oceanic remixes and reinterpretations 
and the other day I was looking through my cd's and found Worship and Tribute by Glassjaw. Hearing that again really reminded me of when I was 15 hanging out with the best of friends I ever had.

EDIT: i fixed the date for the show.

"Buy more neopolitan ice cream"

I've been very busy lately. I've been sleeping a whole lot, not doing hardly anything, going to classes when prompted, being bored, staying indoors, etc. When I'm not doing that I am trying to get stuff done like creating art or making books.
My first billboard design was put up today.

I finished vomitorium no.4, check it out here.

I was trying to work my smooth David Wain-esque moves on Brika Lyga.

what I will be up to:
• Finishing all my final projects for school this week
• Taking a week off from school
• Not going to accomplish anything but having fun...

Lots of things have been happening. I recently took part in the Fort Worth Arts Goggle. It's a big arts fest where businesses and shops in the hospital district of Fort Worth host multiple artists work at each location. It's one of the only arts festivals i've ever truely enjoyed. This marked my first showing of art work.
