If anyone needs me I'll be in Florida

We leave tonight for an extended weekend. Another adventure. Hitting the open, midnight road. Unable to see past what little of the future our headlights illuminate. I look forward to sunny beach weather, drinks with umbrellas, big sunglasses, hot tubs, nightclubs and catching up with old friends. This is gonna be a good weekend.


It's a long ride but we have the effects to get us there in comfort. With three MP3 players between us, the only problem I foresee is a fight for airtime. I've loaded my PSP with enough anime to last me 'till the apocalypse, and just in case I live longer than that, I put some on my iRiver too. Dennis' birthday present from me was Midway Arcade Treasures for the PSP, of which I also have a copy. This means for the fifteen hour drive, some of that time will be spent playing two-player, wireless Gauntlet, Joust, Rampage, Marble Madness and Mortal Kombat 1,2 and 3. I also grabbed us some car chargers so we're gonna be set. Hopefully, all this combined with the bells and whistles of Sean's car means the ride will fly by.

I got some news yesterday that made me both happy and sad. Happy for the other party involved but sad for selfish reasons. I will miss our time together but her future is opening up before her eyes. She steps on a plane Monday, gone for what right now is an undetermined amount of time. This is not a decision at all, there is no "stay or go", there is only go. All of this was so sudden, and there we were behind it, stumbling and struggling to keep up. I wish her the best, this is a once in a lifetime thing.

I'm in an art show! Yes, for the first time in about three years a collection of my photographs will be on display on a wall, in a gallery, and not "teh intarwebs" kind. This is a physical building that you can touch and feel. I'm excited. I haven't felt this in a while. The feeling of putting yourself out there, out on the edge for open critique.

The show is at PGCC, my old stomping grounds, pre-MICA. I was one of about seven artist asked to be in an alumni show. I have five pieces in. It runs from January 17th through February 9th. The cheese and wine reception is Friday, January 27th, 6-8pm.

Anyways, that's it for current events. I'm packed and ready to go.

See you, space cowboy.

So now I can violate your artwork without photoshop? I can use an actual can of spraypaint instead it of its digital analog? Invigorating.
