what do i feel?
what is it?
what isn't it?

I just watched the movie Bomb the System. I really liked it. It is an artistic film about graffiti writers. There is a good plot and Bones Malone from Bone Thugs and Harmony is in it. He was also in one of my favorite artistic films of all time- Slam, a movie about a slam poet/rapper/weed dealer. I recomend both Slam and Bomb the System

we've been having these unusually warm days, where it is like 65 degrees farenheit but then it keeps getting cold and we get more snow
 
i was playing with the turntable and gizmo was playing in the chair
 
helllllooooo
Oh, and while i was without the computer for a couple weeks i did some cleaning and found some of my old art.
the first two are of ani difranco... or at least based on her. i did them both in 1996/1997, and since i am seeing her next week it seems appropriate to start with these
 
1. both hands 1996-1997  2. out of range 1996
   
3. sunset lovers 1995   4. graduation stress 1996  5. reflection 1995
 
6. chucks and baggy pants 1994/95?  7. face 1994
 
8. brick 2006  9. sun goddess 1996

I really like the graduation stress artwork.

The photos are amazing - as usual. I smiled at the cars, still driving around with heaps of snow on them. I guess it's a waste of time to clear them off when it's only going to get snowed on again :)
You look different ... i can't pick it - something in your face ... have you lost weight? You look strong and healthy and awake. Sometimes in your photos I can see your tiredness but that's what I don't see in these photos.

Love them!

thank you. graduation stress is one of my favorites
its funny cuz that one is done with tempra paints which is the really shitty paint you give to little kids

i've been resting a lot and then trying to get out more too. thats probably why i look rested or something, thanks. i'm glad you liked the photos. yeah, its too much of a hassle to clean your car all the way off. just stop quick at a light and it'll all just fall of. ha

I thought you looked a bit different in these too (as in "better-different"). :)

Love the art - "Graduation Stress" is my favorite too because I like abstract art best, and I thought the way you used colors here is amazing.

thank you to both paragraphs.
i think people are noticing that i'm a bit better. i'm happier now. i feel like i should be doing so much more, but i don't always see the changes in myself so it's nice to know.
i'm sorry i havent commented in your journal in a while. it had been so long since i commented that i was nervous that if i commented now you might not want me to so i'm glad you wrote.
peace

No, I'd never NOT want you to comment! I know some people are weird like that, but I think people should comment as often or as seldom as they want. I'd never think anything bad if someone doesn't pipe up often, lol - I suck at leaving comments myself. I think LJ should be fun, not stress. So - no worries! :)

cool. i appreciate that. i feel the same way but there's so such drama on lj. i try to stay away from it, but sometimes i unknowingly just happen upon it when i thought everything was fine so sometimes i tiptoe around people when i don't know how they'll be.
anyway. thank you again. how are you?

Ugh, I know! LJ drama, how I love it - lol!

I'm doing good! I'm glad you got a chance to get some rest, like you said. I should do that too. I was sick for a week or so in January, now I'm burning the candle at both ends again. But all is well, if lack of sleep is my biggest "problem" I figure I'm very lucky! :)

i hear ya. i'm glad things are going well. yesterday my aunt said i look good, and i was like, yeah, i tjhink i'm doing ok. i want to be doing more...but considering how bad the past few years have been, this is the best i've felt in a long time, without crossing over into mania, so thats good. and i'm still *somewhat* young, so i can and should be taking my time right now...
anyway. i'm glad you are good

I love graffiti.

Sorry again for not being around. I ended up bruising my ribs from hacking so much. So basically now I am pretty much over being sick but i can't really do any bending or lifting or much of any movement because my ribs are fucking hating life right now.
Anyways, keep in touch. I should be unbroken someday, haha.
