well thanks to working 2 jobs in the middle of the day i was unable to make it out to the midwest SPE. shame too, it was right in my backyard. one day i'll start getting out more.
on a better note. i finally have an image from this semester that i'm half way happy with. and more to come, i think. i just met some new people who are willing to model for me, though i may have weirded them out a bit. "hi, i just served you coffee and i dont know you. care to model?"
and oh yeah, the abe morell critique was a messy crash and burn. i dressed up like borowiec for halloween and neither of them seemed too amused....until i informed them it was halloween, but by then the embarrassment had been done. who the hell forgets halloween, anyway?
god, if i thought underexposed B+W negatives were a pain to print well, color is like losing a leg. luckily, i brewed a caraf of mexicano beans i roasted myself at the Nervous Dog Coffee Bar to keep me going.
finished up my travel grant proposal for Miami Art Basel 3 long pages of talking about me me me; it was actually pretty easy in retrospect. two birds, one stone, it gave me reason to finally scan the last of my negatives from last semester. i put them up on flickr and gave some images better titles. thank god for that.
oh yeah, Borowiec is selling me his old graflex with 2 backs for $200. i think he misses me.
i cant tell if im rested enough or just too tired to sleep. at any rate, 4 am, in the darkroom, naturally, and i find myself on Brian's site. So why not start my own blog, right? maybe 15 years down the road someone will be sitting in this same spot, looking at my site.
or the color processor will die long before that.
i'm going to want to gouge my eyes out at crit tomorrow. fucking Penny.
