so weird! sometime last week when i was walking to the apartment in bushwick i came across a cardboard box filled with smashed records? i dug around and lifted 2 clean copies and took one of them home to la with me. i just listened to it and it isn’t half bad, and i have to say that my heart goes out to whoever paid to get all that vinyl pressed :—(
i truly cannot wait to go home to be reunited with my barrage of cheap wine
A dark and tense track by the french composer Vladimir Cosma, much more known for his work as a film music composer on a lot of french comedies than for the gems he has done in the library music area. Patchwork 20 focuses on drama atmosphere.
i am 2 hours early for my flight so i am sitting in jfk, at gate 42, watching the sun rise serenely with a fresh cup of ground dirt from dunkin donuts scalding my hand. this is a morning of mixed feelings.

Anonymous said: You want credit for copying the work of Henrietta Harris? In any other medium it's called plagiarism.
Hey friend! I’ve addressed the same question once before, but let me go ahead and explain myself one more time since you seem so vehement about the subject. I created my glitch paintings between the space of 2012-early 2014. As a lot of people on the internet were, I was interested in all the “glitch” art being produced, whether it be from artists who went into the latest version of Photoshop and scrutinized every last detail before ending up with a final piece, or teenagers on their MacBooks screwing around with photos on text edit to distort clippings of their hands and faces. A skeptic would probably not believe this but I had zero, let me repeat, ZERO exposure to her art while creating mine. I had been experimenting with glitch and distortions of the face long before I ever saw a single piece of Harris’s, and my portfolio’s works integrate themselves in a style that is nothing like Harris’s. I only looked her and her body of work up after another person called plagiarism on me. First of all, I believe that it is unfair to attribute every glitch, smear, and distortion artwork/painting to Henrietta Harris when many people have been making distortion work commercially and non-professionally years/decades before she did, and artists of all calibers will be experimenting with the subject long after her. Secondly, I don’t believe the type of distortions we use are similar, and we use different mediums and color palettes. And finally, if you’re going to say I drew inspiration/”blatantly plagiarized” anybody, let me set the record straight and say that I love Gerhard Richter’s work and I definitely try to evoke the same emotion, dynamism, and color palettes in my own art. You can also go ahead and tell Harris that she’s ripped off Richter; he’s been doing smear art and distortion for ages. I think it would also be a good idea to round up all the artists of late who utilize technology to either inspire or drive the distortion aspect of their art and start pointing fingers between all of us; I’m sure you can occupy your vigilante mind with that. And once that gets stale after nobody but me gives you the time of day, you can start kicking up old bones and sending letters to the graves of old masters—more than 1 person involved in cubism?! They must all be copying each other. It’s a moot point to try and pick two artists out of a relatively recent art style and pit them against each other when dozens, if not exponentially more artists are involved, using the same processes and inspirations. I think you’re riled up because you saw two artists using a similar motif and you struck the student work before thinking about all the nuances of each of our bodies of work. Anyway, that about covers it! Shoot me a message off anon and I’d be more than happy to send you emails of other artists that employ similar distortions that you can harass, and I could even give you a brief history lesson and point out art movements with individuals involved who happened to use the same/similar techniques as their contemporaries. Talk to you soon! :—)
