Those are two blogs I posted on myspace in 2006.

December 11, 2008 with a year and a half of college under my belt, I am in the same place. If only I had enough sense two years ago to stay single, keep some money, and do what I want instead of go where church, money, women, and parents want me to go.

I have learned to listen to myself.

I appreciate every lesson I've learned, but I'm not going to pretend that I don't regret every minute of the last 1 1/2 years. Though I regret it , it took Birmingham for me to sprout some wings, grow a dick, and become aware of myself. I don't have any apologies to anyone or love notes to the city. Hell, I am just happy to be moving somewhere else.

I am seeking employment here in Huntsville and I am enrolled in Calhoun. This is to appease my parents. I am actively searching for housing and have applied for more jobs in Portland than I have here.

Everything in my life has fallen through so I expect the unexpected this December.

i dont want to do the typical 4 year at aub . you cant come home twice so why even try. i know it will be dif. poeple will change. my family and parents will change just like they have been for the last 17 years.

i will make whereever i am home. if that means boulder colorado ausome. maui? sweet SCAD oh yeah . peacecorps, mission work . i can deal with that.

who cares if i make 50 grand less than my dad or the guy next door. as long as i'm happy with my situation. thats all i want honestly is to move on and see whats out there.

happyness will come if you work for it. screw watching tv and playing video games . dude go climb a tree. or plant a garden . its easy to find satisfaction in the smallest things. you've got nothing to loose. i'm not running away from huntsvegas or my family and friends i'm just looking for whatever i can find. theres nothing to loose.

Dwelling on this first roll photo I took in 04....

"I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse." - Craig Volk


recently discovered the art of hooping

Olaudah Equiano was brought to Savannah as a slave. In his spare time trading items he was able to make enough money to purchase his freedom. He then wrote an autobiography which influenced the British Parliment to abolish the trading of slaves. Bad ASS.

This may be one of the most captivating moments in world history.

In Beijing in 1989 students began to ask the government for a more democratic society. In thier protests the Chinese government slaughtered thousands. Litterally opening fire on the students. The next day this man (still unidentified) was on his way home from buying groceries and came across a Chinese show of force, threatening the protesting students. Instead of walking around the brigade he kept on his way and eventually stopped in front of the tank. Then he climbed on the tank and told the driver to get out of his city and to leave him alone. On other versions of the tape you can see people grabbing him and pulling him away. He imediately disapeared. Its believed he was taken by the secret police and executed.

The things I try to make unique
are just modified reproductions of what
I've seen. I think I'm done. Or else
I've got to find something so untracable, the closest
anyone will ever get to it is through me.

Art has a few kinds of apeal.

Idealized realistic depictions.
Abstract. Something not readily identifiable.
Realism. Kareoke. Not staged. Pushes limits of common sensability.

Then there are creations. Taking all three apeals and managing to avoid duplicity and acheiving truth by being unsensable, unrecognizable, and completely realistic, and remaining untraceable. And this has the be the goal of the artist.

This may be the ultimate vanity. The ultimate desire to be unatainable.
I wanted to post a couple photo archives but I can't work this mac.
