now it is clear

this was my "art statement' for my recent exhibition at art park in byron bay, australia. i find that these diagrams work a lot better than trying to write one of those term papers. that said, nobody said anything about it, we just talked about some of the drawings, which is the best way, really.


i made a tour shirt for my vetiver buddies.

music tapes letters

while trying to organize the endless boxes of crud in the basement i came along this little artifact of summers' past. it's a letter from julian koster to me when i was living in muncie and trying to book his band to play at the yard sale/art sale (YART SALE) we were putting on. that postmark says march 18, 1999.

pre-email address communications, right here. i met julian very briefly at a neutral milk hotel show in ohio some months before and he was really into the idea a tour that involved playing people's backyards. he did come to muncie, but he ended up playing my buddy chris' parents house in indianapolis. i don't know where i was or why i did not got to that show.

i think i sent him a tape and a letter and being stoked to get a letter back. somewhere there is also a tape of a really funny answering machine message he left for me at my mom's house. people tend to romanticize the pre-internet age sometimes, but you know some things were special in a way that's gone now. let's think on that.

x-d out

we went to a thrift store and found a couple photos of the same family a few years apart. both photos had the same woman's face blacked out. i wonder who did that and i wonder what she did.
