There are few breaks in life as a parent, but i’m currently enjoying a short one as Heidi & Naish are up North in the wilds of Minnesota. Since’s Naish birth, my home office (studio?) has become a dumping ground of bills, broken electronics, unread magazines, and anything else that comes along. While it’s gathered a very nice “patina” of artistic clutter, it’s also just becoming an unworkable, disorganized craphole. So much so, that my 5AM wake-ups to “work” usually just involve trying to find space to put a cup of coffee down.
Highlight of last weekend was joining my brother and company to be witness Charleston’s fifth Kulture Klash.
Like an adolescent rave with instillation art, the event took place in a dilapidated warehouse in North Chuck just outside of the artsy neighborhood of Park Circle. Break-dancers, techno, bmx stunts, couple hundred drunk art students, day-glow paint and beer. Made for a pleasant highlight to the weekend in the low-county. Especially dug a few of the art pieces, in particular a chandillier made of bike wheels and the painting to the left. If I had a camero, I’d want this stenciled on the hood!
Week three in Charleston? or is it week 4?
Got co-opted into my younger brothers kickball team – AWESOME! Nothing like drinking a few beers and pulling out a quad kicking a stupid red rubber ball! We found out last minute we made the “play-offs” (pretty sure everyone makes the playoffs) so team super-bad took the field for one more attempt at glory. good times.
Also had my first going out in the Chuck-Towne downtown; Not too shabby for a random Tuesday night. This could probably grow on me….
as a footnote, the new job is an ass-kicker, which is good! and I’m still talking to myself as according to wordpress the site has 0 traffic, which is actually more coforting than one would think….
This past August, I was fortunate enough to visit the Galapagos Islands and hike the inca trail to Manchu Picchu. There is so much more about it I can say, but not in this post.
