5 minutes before i get ready for bed...
exiting my car in a parking lot recently, i saw a sedan covered in ed hardy bumper stickers and even displaying an ed hardy sun visor. it was ridiculous. upon seeing it, my very first thought about the owner of the car was: "well, there is a pretty good chance that this person is not white".
so, the show sold out in a half hour...even with getting up at 6:55 (7am being the equivalent to 10am EST, when they went on sale) and repeatedly refreshing the ticketmaster page, i didn't have a fighting chance. it's all the more disappointing because, right before my alarm went off to wake me up, i actually dreamed that i had laboriously, yet successfully bought the tickets online. "didn't i already do this??" i thought to myself as i sat up in bed.
i'll never forget discovering this painting in the art institute of chicago a few years ago. i hadn't gone to art school, i had never figure painted, i had never even heard of antonio mancini before. but i was in love with it all the same...and i hope i get to go back and see it someday.

i wrote this in my journal this morning...my life makes a lot more sense and feels a lot less futile when i read it.
