The saga (dis)continues...(?)

Wow, it's been almost a year since my last post... I guess I just stopped blogging, despite a multitude of posts about how I  intended to continue blogging to keep people updated on things I just well, I didn't. I have failed to keep the promises I made to the people who probably were'nt (weren't? werent?)... were not reading this in the first place. And if you were reading this looking forward to an occasional update, only to be left these helf baked posts... I apologize.

So maybe I will start blogging again. If only for my self.

Or.. then again...

Maybe I wont.

Maybe I'll let people know what I'm doing, or remind myself of what it is I'm supposed to be doing by pinning these blog entries to my forehead (or, more likely and less dangerously, some various sidebar on some UI display on some program that I don't really use). Because in reality I miss writing.

I used to write a tremendous amount. And I still write a good deal, and I share it amongst friends and peers and colleagues and well thats not all true, but I do write some of the aforementioned (aforementioned meaning the last post which was posted nearly a year ago) freestyles and mess around with rhyme here and there. But this is neither the time or the place, or the space (I can't help it, sorry).

So what am I doing these days, there's been a lot that's happened since the last entry. More than just beatnik stream of thought poetry.

I've started a new website for myself and my dad. www.abstraccidents.com so there's that.

I've started my own currency which I call gritcoin, which people can follow the progress of on instagram presuming they have it. #gritcoin

I'm learning programming in order to build a gritcoin website and other websites as well.

I will be unveiling 2 life size sculptures in Rock Hill, NY come June 25th.

Jeeze I should get back to work.

We're also giving away some free sculpture at our property in Ferndale. If you read this you are welcome to come by and pick one out.

(I really like parenthetical statements)

Fast Times.

Well I often keep people in the dark about my general writing habits, but lately a lot of my time has gone into some unspoken spoken-word , some freestyle e-mails with or without editing, some 6 minute spit and write whatever i can think of real quick or seven day wait and gestate and deliberate and decided on what exactly it is I should write all the while writing the occasional surmise of all that I was thinking about before i decided to write something that took way too much time. This is the former, the unedited quickly written likely within the 6 minute window, that explains something of the upcoming stuff that I'll be stuffing into these entries, which is essentially of lot rhyming and rapping, possibly instagram-ing and eventually i will potentially return to the convention of regularly posting all different kinds of things.

Slow times.

I'm doing a very poor job updating this blog.

It'll come around. You'll see.

so for now I'll write a poem about my lack of blogging

Ode to blogspot.

Treacherous typing or fear of the void
a blank page is nothing
if not what we avoid
and you might call it lethargy
hell I call it that myself
but a blog is a bottle
which I can retrieve from my shelf
though it rings of justification
and maybe thats so
but blogging's like business
and the winter it's slow.

end.

Chaotic Blogging Tactics

So here I am at the regularly irregular interval of mentioning how I will blog more consistently due to a clifflike drop in my blog-writing tenacity. The Month  of March saw 11 posts in rapid succession, only to see me disengage with equal rapidity and not blog again until may, where I would post a single blog entry and then take a further 2 month break and not post until now, the first of August.  So it may seem kinda strange and unpredictable that my postings can go from 11 one month to 0 the next and then randomly shoot back up again.... well, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation. Having had a blog for 6 years now I am prone to sometimes feel apt to be very verbose and write a lot or do a series of sculptures and post daily pictures or something of the sort, and then of course there are the natural lulls where I just have no desire to write blog entries. It actually follows a very common and well known pattern of chaos, the sputtering proliferation of entries coming one moment and then dropping off to nothing the next..... but I guess you could really put the whole "chaos" and "randomness" titles on to pretty much anything and justify the pattern found there in.

So to conclude my rambling I will simply say that it seems very likely that a sputtering jump of blog posts may be likely to occur. This month has a lot of interesting stuff in store, including a new 7+ foot tall sculpture, some cool commissioned works, and the Trainwreck art show being curated by myself and my father (or is it my father and myself?).

Up Coming Shows

So I'll be showing new work at two different shows over the next couple weeks including the Andy Kessler Memorial Auction which will be taking place on May 31st at the Picture Farm Pro Gallery in Williamsburg Brooklyn. And I'll also be showing in the inaugural show for the new Chelsea gallery ArtNowNy (alongside one of my personal favorite artists Skinner) which will be taking place on June 7th.

Here's a sneak peek at one of the new sculptures which will be on display at ArtNowNY show.

Well I suck at keeping up with blogging... but free sculptures!

That's right, if you are one of the first 100 people to donate to my project, any donation at all, $1, $5, whatever you get a free sculpture. I know that's not exactly free, but you're not really paying much for the stuff either.

So hurry, cause as of today there is only 5 days left.
