whim wonders [Nov. 22nd, 2010|03:30 pm]
Further Inaccuracies
It seems like having a child would drastically change one's motivation for making art.
Or, if I were to have a child, my motives for creating art would be put into a very different perspective, if I am being honest with myself.
What I'm getting at: there's a ton of overlap between the two, and the progeny route is much less flail-y, or so I am led to believe. Or I anticipate. Or you get the idea.
One wonders. Ask a parent you know.

unlike writing [Oct. 22nd, 2010|11:57 pm]
Further Inaccuracies
The act of blogging has become so very unlike the act of writing in that I can't seem to think of the content of blogs being divorced from some reflection on the medium itself these days. Or feelings or something. Is that the name of a record, "feelings of something like it"... I dunno.

physically still confusing [Sep. 18th, 2010|09:27 am]
Further Inaccuracies
My two morning rituals consist of a.) bathing b.) eating, not necessarily in that order. There's a very special day of the year on which I do neither or those things (today, Yom Kippur), and even though I've done it, oh, 15 times, it's always extremely notable and probably the best way to set the day apart. Violation of a 364-day (more or less) expectation.

But it's hard to know for sure. Pretty killer anyway.
Amazing how each successive version of iTunes seems worse than the last. Must have been a pretty darn good program to begin with to have successfully suffered so many downgrading. V 10.0, huh?

elders being wise [Aug. 18th, 2010|06:07 pm]
Further Inaccuracies
Gotten a few unexpected votes of confidence from respected elders recently, along the lines of, "well, you know what you're doing, so a.) I'm interested in hearing what you have to say b.) you can take care of yourself/help others". What a sweet thing to hear. Not unlike Horselover Fat being told "you're the expert", but without the development of VALIS as a background.

feelings might be facts [Aug. 7th, 2010|12:08 am]
Further Inaccuracies
In the increasingly less wild frontier of the internet, I am amused and generally not in agreement with the idea of stylish venue for content trumping content. Look at my website and you'll know this is a belief I hold. I respect that people don't want to blog in the style of this place as it was when it was abuzz in, say 2005. That is cool. I know that I appreciate the opportunities afforded by having several digital proxies (this is my other blog), exclusivity of format is unnecessary. I certainly understand people who are tired of updating digitally all together. I also am familiar with the creeping exhaustion current trends in the web afford - I lasted like a week on Twitter, and il face book wears me down a little more every year.
I know that this format has done nothing wrong to me in six years.

I am also a man who still has no idea (nor interest, I think) in finding out what an RSS feed is and likes my internet decentralized and needing to be manually rechecked. I love information that needs to be animated by you, as opposed to the domain of animated information. So here I am, writing this, for myself to enjoy as well as any one reading. To you: please read on.

This crotchetiness is totally uncalled for and achieves nothing. I suppose my desire is to say that in fact little has changed and I find the illusion that anything has changed mildly pernicious. I go to check the thoughts of the ten or so blogs I follow every other day or so and am bummed when another one drifts away after six months of productive time (I recognize the probable positive development in one's life when one is too busy to blog), and I feel that as a loss in this digital world of staying close while staying away... another person you haven't really been that close to gets farther. So I'm just trying to stay floating around an unspecified periphery just often enough that I stay in view.

With partial cogency,
Dave

From the Donut Shop in Park Slope comes an exciting development indeed: the coconut apple donut. Coconut on top, apple inside. Holy shoot. Where to begin?

challs [Jul. 25th, 2010|12:55 am]
Further Inaccuracies
I'm no lover of concert halls. I think music is ideally heard a.) while you're spinning in circles (ie at a roller rink, on an amusement park ride, etc.) b.) as part of a marching band or a parade (which you are always able to follow if you've got the time & inclination or it can be just perfect for the moment it passes you by) c.) on a subway platform of similar construction, with similar transient properties.
I just had a long conversation with two friends about how much we all dislike concert hall ritual and manner. It made me realize that I'm actually doing something about it and trying to stay the hell away from concert halls (I went to one tonight for the first time in two months). I hope the seed's been planted in them as well... grow little idea-dude*, grow.

*I mean dude in an ungendered sense, just like, living idea object thing
