Nowadays if you are on public transport and not staring into your phone, you are considered a weirdo. So that's what I'm doing. Blending in, adapting.
Our trains are packed with seats that can be adapted to face either way. So when the train goes in the other direction, you can face all seats in the right direction, or if you have a group, you can have facing seats. It’s pretty great actually. None of that standing bullshit.

Anyway, this design lends itself to a fun game of sitting at the front of the carriage and facing everyone and seeing how many people you can make uncomfortable eye contact with.

Also, standing at the doors of the elevator and facing everyone and making eye contact is a fun game too. Bonus points for starting a conversation.

My mother wants us to get a puppy pitbull. I am totally on board with this! Really cool if it comes to fruition. But I basically don't want to look at any picture of prospective dogs we might get until it's more of a sure thing. Reason for this is obviously that I don't want to have feeling for something that isn't going to come to me loving fully.

Is this a weird or normal thought process?

Not exactly a heady question, but here goes: Why do we in the U.S. insist on maintaining grassy lawns of near golf-course quality along roadsides, highway interchanges and traffic islands? Isn't the money better spent elsewhere? Just remove the deadfall and dangerous conditions and let the greenery grow.

And there's my controversial thought for the day.

Because the dum bitches over at home owners association take pics of your lawn then threaten that if you dont cut it they will fine you.

Because pitbulls are amazing animals... and my mother fell in love with my pastor's pitbull when we had him at our house for about a week while they were gone.

I ask because here in Guam they are extremely popular. They make the news now and again when someone is attacked. I suspect much of that is due to how the dog is raised/trained, but I also suspect that some is ingrained in the species. But I digress.

Anyways, thanks for responding. As a cat person, I"m not all that familiar with the temperament/behavior of a lot of the dog breeds

fuck. im so lazy beyond anything u can imagine even if i look like the opposite.
i recently joined an art discord chatroom made by a collective of artists (5 guys i think) that have around 30.000 followers each on instagram. they wanted us random followers to join and chat with them to improve our skills, or so they say.
been there for 3 days and i'm already tired of art, they only talk about art, they eat photoshop for breakfast, their selfies they paint in big canvases, every joke, every meme, everything is about art, to me it's pure dementia. they don't even have a "what are you listening to" thread.
i posted like 3 drawings receiving good criticism but i notice that there's a lot of personality power being displayed and hidden fashionable-cool-not cool inner struggle in their stuff and their talk. add the fact that these people have been studying art in university for 5 years. these people are truly obsessed about it. it's like when i go out with my elite physiotherapist friend who's friends only talk about physiotherapy. actually that's why i don't go out with him anymore.

look i'm not judging them or smth, i'm trying to rationalize what i'm seeing.

no wonder why they are so good and why i'm not yet at their level, but surprisingly, i don't think that my stuff can't compete with theirs.
still, that's why art will always be a hobby for me, or like a personal goal, not "me the artist living the artist life", but more like let's make a cool looking painting.

also wtf, i'm grooving to this shit


at the end life is all about having fun, and if for me having fun is going out, having drinks and meeting girls and people, then be it. if it's about travelling, then be it. but for sure it's not about reaching the elite of painters, because it's driving me a bit insane.
tomorrow, i'm meeting a friend girl, we'll do smth normal at night. need fresh air.

but then at the same time, i know i'll keep obsessing over getting better and won't leave the group, because i know i can't stop.

Art is dead
there's lots of amazing art, you just have to get really involved in the scene (instagram lol) and find stuff that you like.
besides that i left the group with these elitist artists
i left because basically chat was them preaching about stuff, you couldn't really participate because they would have their groupies and basically all that counted in chat was their opinions and so on. but it's also true that i'm very antisocial and i tend to do my own thing so people never like me, etc so perhaps that's something relevant as well.
but i felt i was part of a cool sect, still a sect, and also they thought some of my comments were over the top, example:

  • someone said he felt bad about being so lose on his art, he needed to be more disciplined and straight about it, and i just told him: punish yourself, and linked 2 images of guys flagellating themselves.
  • they created a slow motion chatroom and i wrote, nice, i can be at toilet and slow down here, another small drama about it.
i dunno, even my professor in the academy i was at was kinda attacking me anytime he had a chance, i remember lol, once i had finished a drawing and this super hot girl student came in and she looked at it and said that's so cool, at that very moment he grabbed my drawing and he draw over it, like giving it more shadows and light, and i thought, that's a clever way of making someone think "if he's doing it atm he could have been doing it before".

the world can only love me when they are alone with me.

Art isn't dead as long as artists are doing it out of genuine need for expression, and have a certain integrity, discipline and rigorousness to their expression. One could paint a picture of an object and someone else could paint the same object, but it could be a completely different interpretation of the object. And it doesn't need to have a mass appeal, just like some people like certain music styles over others. Art's subjectivity is what makes it interesting, but everyone's going to find slightly different things interesting.

However, as it has become incredibly easy to access people's art, it has become increasingly difficult to find the artists who actually distinguish themselves.

Hasn't art become just a cesspool of people making political statements? It's like facebook for art students, where they use pieces of garbage instead of a keyboard to communicate. The actual craft of creating art seems to have been toned down.

Art is like mainstream music. Most of it is bad and its everywhere, drowning out the lesser known/unknown but much better artists.

Anyways I find "art" found in nature to be the best. Pure unadulterated, unopinionated, doesnt care about appealing to the masses, etc

I don't know what you mean by integrity Polaris. I search the word and it says: self respect, honesty, consistency uncompromising adherence to moral values and ethics. It's opposite is hypocresy which is basically a false apparence of virtue or goodness.
As I personally see it you don't have to show feelings in your artwork, or appear as vulnerable if that's what you mean, art doesn't have to be an open window for the people into your mind, art is also about problem solving, more than you would think and also about mistakes and finding beauty in some of those mistakes. It can be emotional but most of the time it's within the artist narrative and image to the world. I've also seen some modern artists painting pictures taken by random photographers in Instagram, I guess because these pictures captivated them, but how is there anything personal to the them?. I don't do art because I need to express myself, I do it because I want to be better than others who are better than me atm and show my superiority. Maybe that's also a need of expression. Music seems more pure to me than visual art. Isn't martial arts about defeating your senpai? That's what I think. There's too much cult of personality which is fine, you might have been born enveloped in velvet, and that's consistent with your world.
To me, at the end art is when you do whatever the fuck you want and don't ask permission.

Im currently working in a piece that's pretty fucking baddass. So baddass that I have been having trouble to sleep out of excitement to see how the final product turns out. There's a friend telling me to join him for an exhibition in his town. I'm not sure, I want to be even more solid.

Anyways leaving art behind. One of my old friends is leaving to fucking Germany to work. Jesus. I'm thinking of doing the same thing. I have many proposals and houses where to stay. I just think I need a bit more time.

Its amazing how many people in the world still dont understand the concept "Less is more sometimes"- I guess figuring out when and where it applies is the tricky part.

It still amazes me how in politics illusions rule more than mere facts. I mean politics is more than collection of facts for sure, but daaamn.

I like this political commercial where this politicians was posing in front of prison and started with saying that politicians should be in prison for corruption and stealing. Anyway I was thinking,,,, dude arent you a politician yourself????

I mean this guy was already full of shit right from get go, because he is a shady character with very shady history, but the fact he has the balls to go out there and point fingers nonchalantly is even more schizophrenic.

I mean when it comes to politics in my country there is mass confusion, where everyone has a theory about right and wrong, but essentially no one has the balls to admit that the fucker they are voting for is pretty much regular mafioso with his regular mob running errands behind the scenes trying to squeeze some more out of the states tit.

I mean I never minded the corruption - the stealing, bribery and killing and abuse politicians progressively develope, but cant they at least do a single thing for this country? Apparently not. 30 years since socialism and the country is still going down hill. I mean why worry about African refugees? Soon we will be running to Africa as refugees if it goes this way.

It's very weird. I met this girl like 4 months ago in a language exchange. She's not from this land, she's got a very pretty exotic features and she's been talking to me through whatsApp for like a month now, always late night, maybe at like 12 to 1 am. She asks me so many things, the most random questions, like I'm supposed to know stuff or smth. And I dunno I kinda like her not only for her body but she seems like very positive. BUT
Im leaving for work so no point in paying much attention to it. She's fine af tho. Decisions u never make a perfect one.

No, because if it isn’t “if you can’t beat em, join em” (one of the earliest typical American phrases people in USA hear and learn growing up there inside America), it’s satirical anyway, and just irony. The thing is, though, life is about breathing air, so if you want to impress people or someone specific, you have to say the right thing - not just “anything”.

That means saying either every single thought on your mind, or typing it, or expressing every idea, one’s you agree with and don’t, just to fully “explain” something that way.

So, at what point do you have to just tell people your social media passwords or give them information that helps them, whether Googled or not?

You’ve done similar things an umpteenth amount of times too. If that doesn’t explain anything then you haven’t understood it.

Well maybe I can afford to pay more attention not just to you, but to every thing and body. That’s the thing. Specifically targeting someone for some reason is one way of going about it - and it’s easy to see why groups of people would want to manipulate a social situation to make it seem like the “new normal”, as it comes with the territory. People are forced to do things like a job. Fine - that’s fair. Why not have fun whilst participating? Then again, Fi and Ti are only so compatible.

I am getting reclusive vibes from my brain. So drain from interacting with people. I havent even been interacting with people much. I just get tired so fast dealing with stuff.
My brain is highly inefficient when it comes to socializing.

I had two and half days of no sleep.
