At the risk of sounding cartoonishly melodramatic, I actually pondered giving up art for a bit when I saw this piece yesterday:
I haven’t made anything this superb, well, ever…but actually–and more importantly– I haven’t made anything I’ve really liked in probably a year. It’s so depressing. I just feel all locked up creatively. But last night while I was lying in bed thinking about things, some ideas–ideas that actually excited me–started to bubble up. I may not go all emo ex-artist on you yet.
Check out this gallery. It is just…breathtaking. To me, anyway. It’s just that her stuff is right up my alley. It speaks me to me. Actually, when I look at her work I liken the feeling I get to being punched in the heart. It just knocks the wind out of me, in a great and terrible way.
In other news, ya know how I know Another Kiwi loves me? He sends me shoes!!! Check this out:

THIS IS AN OPEN THREAD. WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND? I DEMAND THAT YOU TELL ME OR I WILL CONTINUE WRITING IN ALL CAPS.
One thing I can’t figure out is why so many alternative/indie outfits have male lead singers with the most annoying, insipid voices. Seriously. It’s a problem and it’s one of the reasons I don’t download more stuff in this particular vein. Also…jesus…why do so many indie and electronica artists have the most buttfuck-ugly album covers?Is it a rule or something?
