“In the fifth grade I was arrested from school and suspended for a week cause I made blueprints and plans and went through the classrooms stealing all the Goosebumps books. I was successful with three classrooms. The way I did it, every week I came home with a certain amount. I had numbers one through 73. Then I fucking got caught. And I was a little smartass, so I was like, What a coincidence! A black youth getting arrested for wanting to read. So I made a list of everyone I thought snitched on me, who I was going to kill and torture.”

Hard Light by Ed Ruscha and Lawrence Weiner

this monochromatic morning

this monochromatic morning
2009

I watched it fade in slow motion
again like a paper cut cuticle
or a texas winter
lucid and timeless
like the way you dream when you dont want to fall asleep.
watching your night again like a technicolor movie
and how true it becomes when it slips
into this monochromatic morning
with no promise of spring
out of context
and out of mind

Young Man - Strangers


New single available through myoldkentuckyblog.


I first heard Young Man about a year ago, when a coworker turned me to her son's roomate's music myspace.  Now Collin Caulfield is signed to Frenchkiss and has an album already available for purchase. Small world. The Strangers ep drops December 7th.
Mad props to my old coworker's son, (and now good friend of mine) Reilly Cleare for the great cover art.

I once read that "life is merely a matter of coffee and whatever intimacy a cup of coffee
affords." -out of context its a line that has stuck with me, Especially when I find myself in accord with the grand tradition of coffee-seeking young men. Do i really want a cup of coffee? I guess not really, but I would like to make conversation in a mutually comfortable environment and have something to do with my hands so I don't make a complete awkward mess of myself. -sigh
I happen to know of a dusty hole in the wall where a cup of coffee cost a little more than a buck and is served by an aging hippie that could kick my ass. He's usually watching a black and white movie on his computer and the place smells like my room. I like it. Its also pretty close to the New Museum. SO- in short,
Would you like to get a cup of coffee on Saturday?

Maryanne Casasanta's work contemplates the exchange between art and commonplace. By offering a glimpse into the inner life of every day objects, her personal living environment is transformed through an ongoing process of recording and annotating space.



Nothing makes more sense to me than the work of Casasanta right now.

“We’re lookin’ at about an hour and a half,” he says.
The old man knows patience all too well although
Patience’s hand has never been stretched my way,
time enough only for these couple of tires,
enough only to waste my afternoon.
And he knows we cant find conversation
So he chooses his own seat and turns to his Bible.
My seat finds me across the floor
And While he finds a passage and begins to read I watch him
because I don’t understand how he does this
so easily. So intently, you can see it.
I immitate his face, and almost smile. but He'll never know.
I open my book

And catch an old mexican woman's gaze and of course she smiles
And Of course I smile back. Most appropriately,
her daughter sits close, and even more appropriately
they dont say much. The younger is involved
in what ever shit was playing on day time tv, I’m sure it was court tv.
I got up and poured myself some free coffee.
I don’t know why because everything free is sure to be shitty,
But I poured in some free powdered creamer
and stirred.
i could feel the old womans eyes again. As i started back for my seat
I thought to offer some to grandpa, but i didnt.

the ol' man had looked up from his bible and was smiling

at the flamboyant judge.

it’s raining thick outside and I so hate the smell of rubber.
