no, not deadPosted: April 28, 2010
Not dead, but extremely busy. Between working full time, training for a triathlon part-time and hangin’ out in my spare time, I don’t get a lot of sleep.
So… highlights? For brevity’s sake, three updates and a picture.
1. Brown Paper Bag is doing well, and the response is better than I expected. Blogging is hard work! I’m constantly trying to keep it fresh and think of new stuff. Connecting with people across the world is cool too.
2. One of my best buddies, Laura, came to visit me in Baltimore last week. We spent four days hanging out and on Saturday night saw Hot Chip. One of the best concert’s I’d seen in a while. This starts a crazy amount of shows I’m seeing in May/June. In order (after Hot Chip): Yeasayer, Beach House, Wye Oak, The National, The New Pornographers/the Dodos.
3. I got accepted to an artist residency in Vermont. In September, I’m going to spend a couple of weeks in rural Vermont and make some art, listen to artists and writers and generally do arty stuff. Yoga studio on campus. Very exciting. A little concerned about getting all my stuff on a plane, but I’ll figure it out.
And finally, the photograph. What I’m working on. Due May 10. A race against time.
