Confessions of a flake

    0
I wouldn't say I'm a notorious flake, but there's a half and half chance that if we make plans I'm never going to see you again. Honestly, I've just accepted this as a part of my genetic makeup.

I always feel odd when I refer to myself as an artist. Has anyone figured out a way to do that without pretension? Now to be clear, I do it anyway. Because when in doubt there is one thing I for sure have in common with that class of dreamers: I look back at my early work and shudder.Sure some pieces elicit a deep sympathy...

Specifically, it was the idea some artists have that they should wait around until they are inspired before creating. I know I have been guilty of this. I've let distractions keep me from focusing on the work I want to create. Distracted from the life I want to...

The reviews of Random Acts of Flyness took their time making their way to me. When they finally did they were glowing. Revolutionary was the general sentiment. But not one for hype, I went into the first episode with measured expectations. Y'all.To say the HBO show blew my mind is an understatement.
