artist Nayland Blake natters on about art and other things

Sometimes I worry….

with 5 comments

…about not posting enough. The past week has provided two states of being: feeling ill, thus too limp to reflect and type or doing stuff, in which case there is no time to type. The result? A week slips by with nothing. So now finally some time is wrested from the job, which allows for a quick update. here’s some of what’s been happening:
1. I’ve attended three plays Lee Bruer’s new production of “A Doll’s House”, Cabaret, Wonderful Town. All through the great graciousness of my friends who offered me tickets.
2. I’ve spent weekend in bed convulsed by coughing to the extent that I thought I had ripped a muscle.
3. I haven’t played any Pikmin.
4. I purchased two bookshelves at Crate and Barrel.
5. I watched the people’s court.
6. I compiled a list of people I needed to contact, calls I needed to return, projects I needed to nudge forward…and despaired.
7. I had a number of exchanges and attempted to apologize for my boorish behavior.
8. I organized a still life of t-shirts and ribbons in the back room of my gallery so that it could be photographed for an ad in artforum.
9. I’ve eaten BBQ ribs on several occasions.
10. I’ve drawn.
11. I’ve spoken to my therapist about submissiveness.
12. A friend graciously came by and fixed the desktop machine, if by “fix” one means walking me though another clean install.
13. The buzzing, counfounding strains of NPR have woken me every morning, and the self reflexiveness of Adult Swim has droned me to sleep each night.
14. I’ve fretted about my filing system, and the extreme amout of facial hair left around my wash basin.
15. My family hasn’t called, nor have I called them.
16. I have found myself unable to decide between a dead or fake christmas tree.

  1. talking heads 77

    Is such a great album.

    Which reminds me I need to put Remain in Light on my office computer. That album is so ingrained in me it’s like listening to myself talk.

  2. Clean the hair out of the sink and buy a fake tree, decorate it with ribbons and lights, and enjoy yourself. 🙂

  3. Re: talking heads 77

    For me, “RIL” was the beginning of the end, “fear of Music” seems like the most solid record, and “77” the one that thrills me the most.

  4. Curse you and your sensible, compassionate advice. You’re messing up my self pity!

  5. really?

    RIL was the beginning of a lot of things, but not really the end for them. I thought they still had it right up until Little Creatures, which was the end for me (very confused by the kids who love that one; kids who are 30 now).

    My favorite, actually, is their old live one, The Name of this Band is Talking Heads.
