So blogs are a phenomenon, which began, as killbunnie23 quoted on her blog in 2005,
"BLOGGER: Term used to describe anyone with enough time or narcissism to document every tedious bit of minutae filling their uneventful lives...
BLOGGING: If minds had anuses, blogging would be what you mind would do when it had to take a dump."
But now I'm arguing that there's blossomed another shoot with a lot of artistically relevant material in the stupid-sounding-named blogosphere. I don't think I'll get a lot of argument there. But I'm not satisfied with this material getting overlooked for the next hot link in the ADD playground we call the internet.
In a super-duper cool article I read on the web, whose author or whereabouts I can no longer remember or find, this guy was talking about how studies are showing that the internet has invariably served to broaden the field and complexity of thought concepts people can kick simultaneously hold in their minds' field of awareness, but at the cost of reducing the depth those concepts are allowed to comprise or show.
Of course, it's all about practice, though isn't it? So I want to take the blogs out of the machine, where they become dead little animals, just like if you plucked a starfish out of the sea, put in in your purse, and hung on your mantle. Dead little animals, you can look at forever, as long as your kids don't break it. Or your abusive husband. You can study dead little animals and learn more about living animals!!
And that's my new art project.
Please support me by watching for my shows and buying my work.
Thanks for watching!
