I have this really cool friend. He's full of really cool ideas--some for the money, some for the exposure and others just for the sheer challenge. A few weeks ago I had my own idea about this idea-making machine.
WHAT IS B-REEL FOOTAGE!? Currently, between Christen and I only a few feasible ideas have come to mind--stock footage of animals/scenic views of the natural and built environment and anything not involving people who would have to be specific actors. I encourage any readers to shout out a good idea or two and maybe you can be on the pilot episode of Art O.D. when it all comes to a crashing halt before we get started on the next insane project! This sideshow film footage stuff could be my calling.

By now you might ask where all these negative-Ned brain waves are sprouting from and I'll tell you. Not a day goes by that I don't see or hear some type of artistic endeavor that fails to absolutely blow my mind. Be it painstakingly animated music videos or lyrics to a song that sincerely sound as if they were written with myself in mind I get caught in this funk of flatlined feelings. Does the massive wheel of ingenuity of the world ever stop, sit down and truly enjoy the absurd amount of delicious candy it creates? I guess this is my message to you--take a deep breath of your favorite flavored air some night, dim the lights and go hunt down something off the main grid of web-born mediastreams. Keep clicking and searching, and delving deeper into artspace until you find something that trips you back into so much nostalgic bliss you'll be left to ponder why we ever move forward and why we can't move behind. Posted above is a recent treasure found during a walk down my own path of intermeddling and a personally shot pic (see below) that I feel displays the cosmic oceans of exceptional art that awaits your arrival.
