Bartender, I’ll take the Bosch, please.

it’s a good weekend to create art, write new music & edit videos…the gods Neptune and Venus are smiling down at us. #createart 

We had a successful songwriting/recording session/rehearsal for new spring shows this weekend. I love it when everything flows and starts to come together.

Wolf Moon

Happy (almost) Full Moon. This explains a lot of the crazy, unhinged albeit some of it downright entertaining behavior I witnessed today. It’s the first full moon of the New Year time to plot out magical new projects.

Art Strike

In a time of darkness, does the act of striking and closing the doors of galleries and museums and taking the day to refuse to create art an effective form of rebellion?

I understand the symbolic gesture but I think artists we need to find an effective tool to fight back.
Creating art is a courageous act in the face of tyranny and oppression.

“Such a protest can only help the participants feel good about themselves. It is at best a way of saying “not in my name”, and cannot conceivably do anything to curb Trump or ensure his electoral defeat next time around. Let’s face it: art and serious culture are completely marginal to American life. Trump’s victory proves that. Closing museums is not likely to have any impact on those who support him. With all due respect, they might be affected a lot more if reality television shows went on strike.” Jonathan Jones

I agree, in fact if we all stopped watching NBC, and reality TV shows that encouraged despicable behavior it would indeed have a bigger impact.
