A recent posting of the new BATTLES video has made me realize that maybe I haven’t strayed too far away from music yet. You see for the past few years, I’ve taken myself out musically. This really wasn’t something that happened on purpose, but working on our third year of isolation I’ve come to realize that maybe this could help with what seems to be the dark days of the delete.
The visuals in the video are quite nice. As a small ginger, I once tried to fall down an escalator. If it wasn’t for a fur lined hood on my winter coat and a quick grab, I could still rolling on said escalator at the Aurora mall. I guess what I’m looking for is the next fur lined hood to snap me out of my haze. I’ve started illustrating again and will be adding as much of that to the portfolio. I’ve been watching a lot of local news which is hard to do, but I like to put myself in these uncomfortable scenarios for inspiration. Not that I have to stray too far from myself to get uncomfortable, I’ve made a living at that. Hence the few Harmony Korine pieces in my DVD collection.
