Digitalism interview

A couple of weeks ago I interviewed the electronic band Digitalism, and here’s the interview! Even though the group is from Germany, they seem to be better at speaking English than most Americans.

There will also be a review and a few photos up from their show in Dallas after the holidays (a.k.a. my one week out of the year not spent in front of my PC). I’ll also have some reviews and photos from several of the year’s concerts, such as the Foo Fighters and Broken Social Scene.

Exhibition Opening at Fort Worth Community Arts Center

Starting December 9, my photograph What a Tangled Web It Weaves II will be showcased at the 9 x 12 Works on Paper exhibit at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The exhibit will last until December 28. There will be an artist reception on December 9 from 6-9 p.m. Hopefully I’ll be able to attend around 8 p.m. Hope to see some of you there!


I have joined a conspiracy

No, I’m not announcing my conformity to those “who really shot JFK?” type of mindsets, I’m joining an art conspiracy.

Art Conspiracy is an annual Dallas charity event that auctions off artwork to benefit certain non-profit organizations or programs. This year, Art Conspiracy 7 is raising funds for Musical Angels, which- as the website details- is a “non-profit teaching organization that provides free music lessons to hospitalized children.” Along with more than 150 other artists, I’ll be donating a painting to the cause. Bids will start at only $20, so you won’t have to shell out the cost of month’s rent to buy a piece of art.

The fun starts at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 12 at 511 West Commerce St. in Dallas. Tickets are only $11.50. Local bands Datahowler, The Hope Trust, and J. Charles and the Train Robbers will be the musical entertainment for the night. From the look of things, this won’t be like a stuffy gallery full of yuppies dressed as if they’re at a formal dinner. It will be quirky and fun, (sort of) like me.

You can purchase tickets here if you want to be where all the cool, artsy kids are:

Here are some videos from last year’s shindig. Notice the instructions “wave your hands in the air like you just got your nails painted” in the first video. Gotta love the creative types.

My artwork at a museum? Sounds good!

I’m really excited about this. My photograph Shining Bright (shown below) is going to be on display at the Arlington Museum of Art’s Community Art Showcase October 5- November 13. From what I’ve seen, there’s definitely enormous talent in this exhibition. It’s for local artists, so come by and have a look at the wonderful artwork made by people in DFW!

Short story on Yahoo

Yahoo has published a short story I wrote called Dorm of Doom: A Short Tale of College. It’s mostly a comedy, which is odd for me to write since I don’t usually read humorous stories. I might be doing something similar to this in the future, and hopefully I’ll be writing more for Yahoo as well.

Image that inspired my short story

I’m excited to be expanding into literature, and this will definitely prepare me for the screenwriting classes I’ll be taking. Like most people, I’ve written stories before, but I’ve never published any of them online before.

As always, critiques are welcome!
