It’s June, and I’m finally dusting off the blog. Here are my obligatory apologetic first two lines. In doing so, along with purging e-mails and a glass of beer, I’ve come across a few gems of ideas and more importantly a few lists in some e-mail drafts.
List 1: Tattoo Country
My concept for a tattoo has long been the same: Get a tattoo for each country that I visited. The idea is that it will evolve along with me. The more I travel, the more ink I get. Currently I only have 2 of 9.
Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Niger, Burkina Faso, United States, France
List 2: Set List from Spiritualized Concert at the Wiltern in 2012:
cop shoot cop
ladies & gentlemen…
to the mountaintop
shine a light
lord let it rain on
she kissed me
i am what i am
born never asked…
stay with me
so long you pretty thing
List 3: species surrounding homo sapiens
List 4: Words in Relationships
malaise, fit, relationship, intimacy, love, touch, tenderness, conflict, pain,
confusion, separation, partner, happiness, time, passion, heat, sweat, heart,
loins, sweatshirt, commitment, purpose, goals, time, compatible, together,
distance, growth, dreams, desire, weak, raw, convoluted
Tattoos. Music. Biology. Relationships. These make the sandwich of e-mail drafts that turned into sketchbooks.
