Strap in and hang on. I have little time to write this and I’m coming in hot from an aggressive day. There will be random switchbacks and high-speed non-sequiturs.
This week? Serious this week. Stop it. On so many fronts.
Recontextualization is my favorite artistic tool. Has been since I first learned the name of what I had already been doing for fun (that was a 1 credit studio art discussion class in 1994 btw). Thanks to the New York Public Library and my mounting sense of displeasure with politics in my nation, I bring you this!
On Monday a coworker started a conversation with me about Pink Floyd. They seemed genuinely both shocked and intrigued at how many opinions I had on the topic. Today, all I have listened to has been Pink Floyd. I’m growing in the opinion that “Obscured by Clouds” is one of their best works and that “Dark Side of the Moon” is overrated.
Kiddo came down with both pink eye and strep throat this week. My back freaked out last Saturday and is still giving me trouble. I’m including this section because I am honor bound as a Minnesotan to at least mention the current maladies. I’ll save you the mention of climatic conditions and their impact on people you have never and will never meet.
Did you know the “E” in Chuck E. Cheese stands for “Entertainment”? Now you do.
