Don’t worry this post won’t self destroy in 10 seconds, and no, Tom Cruise will not come and rescue you before your crappy laptop blows up. Even if you were in danger, he is probably super busy skyping and counseling some confused gay alien that’s trying to leave the mother ship to come down and party-hardy for Pride week.
Actually this lil´post is about tonite’s amazing experience. I went to the SALON night for The Cheaper Show #9 . To be honest I was very, very nervous but at the same time, massively excited.
I got to meet some funky-sexy-artsy-smartsy artists from all walks of life. I thought these artists would be nerdy uptight asses, the type of artists that , when you ask them something about their art they would be all like ” you don’t ask questions about my art, you just stare at it and let it be…fuck…..” or the typical ” There is no explanation for what I do, I just do it when it needs to be, because when I do it…. it’s been done and has been, and I did it, cuz I’m real, you get it? ” uh…..well….uh….
But this WAS NOT the case AT ALL. Artists were SO friendly! They even wore pins that said “I’m an artist” , how cool! is not an everyday thing that you get to mingle with them. This was a super rewarding experience AND it really proofs that, nowadays everybody can have access to art. There are so many resources that are inexpensive and that showcase great talented people from all over the place -whether it be social media, blogs, websites, market places or an open house – you can have access to all of it, supporting up and coming young talent.
Anyways, I’m pooped, I walked like 1000km today. So as proof of a successful night I give you this:
My green rug, full of business cards that I got from people at the show, a bag of pizza and of course, my own personal Cargoh planner. Thank you Cargoh! if you were a mechanical bull, I would ride you everyday!!!
PS By the way my blog is called Gbox, not Gspot, (you know who, you dirty bastard)
