So the Funk Summer is over, rather it’s been over. The end was a bit abrupt really and I didn’t have the time to slow down and get my thoughts together in order to express an ending, as I intended to. But that’s alright, that’s ok – that’s how life moves. You can’t put the puzzle together until you’re looking back on all the pieces. Well, maybe that’s not true: You can’t see the picture it all made together until you can look back, with a new perspective. Places change, faces change, time grooves on to its own beat. That’s the way it is. And already I’m in the midst of the new, and it’s been happening, and I’ve been taking it in as I go – improving. So the Funk Summer lived and breathed and ran and grooved and had its highs and died right. Right into legend. So see below, as it were ~ ~
Just click on that link. It’s a photo collection of my end days in this mysterious year. The transitional time, the strangest time, the best time: raw, oh phone grabs and your occasional good shot: not so much the photography, but the representation – what it is. What it is.
So as far as navigating this big mess of a site, if you click that little black icon with the 3 white bars at the top of the page mysteriously titled ‘Widgets’, a drop down menu will appear. If you scroll a little down to Categories, that’s the best bet. Right so:
Chapter 1 is Imagination and Colors. This is early vibey colorful things from when Doofusmedia was first getting started, say Summer 2013.
Chapter 2 is Forces of the Continuum. This era has a lot of odd disturbed notions. Exploring various vague concepts and feeling a bit …..off. Say Fall 2013.
Chapter 2.5 is basically Cold Summer – a mini era of weird empty vibes. It was pretty strange and messy and all over the map and features a lot more photography. Basically December and January.
Chapter 2.9 is exactly what you’d expect. It’s almost Chapter 3 but just not quite. 2014 is here, and we survived the Cold Summer and all the Old Bummers. Trying to find my way down the very unpredictable road of progress.
Chapter 3 is happening now so you can really just scroll back up and see that. I’m not exactly sure what the hell I’m doing with it yet. At the moment I’m leaning towards a continuous flow deal, because all of the sudden I’m questioning categorizing things so heavily. Fucking creative process shit.
Tuesdays are pretty average days, and these are pretty average photos. __ Daily Life __
2/25/14 … This is one of my fish, Champ. Unfortunately I adopted Champ semi-illegally and am probably going to have to return him. Bummer. ***editor’s note, I returned Champ today finally and Zeke And I are gotdamn sad about it, hence the rum.
So this is quickly becoming more of a representation of Tuesdays rather than a literal weekly posting of Tuesdays, but I’m cool with that and I hope you are too. I try to be honest with you guys – you guys being whoever takes the time to view my site – and post real representations of my current life. So here’s 2/21 and 2/22 – a very hazy weekend, and thank God for that, because it was needed. A return to the Rum Diar(ies), a semi-victory of sorts, solely for the ridiculousness that the late evenings entailed. This is Life being Lived. [And, for all of our sake, please note that these are just some iPhone grabs. Technology these days..]
Ok, so it’s not Tuesday (It’s Thursday, or I guess it’s really Friday now) and this picture is from 2/13/14 – Your standard look at the other side of the tracks in Narnia. In related news, I believe yesterday’s high was 64F. Thank God. I’m sorry Aslan.
2/18/14 __ All of these pictures are relatively rad, but this one is more of a ‘hardly rad.’ Going on 5am this morning in my apartment. The hours that have moved beyond strange into that void of vague feelings and stray moods..
Also this one, ‘the corner seat’, because you best believe you’re gonna need some heavy caffeine after those 5am kind of nights. Iced Americano, solo, please and gracias.
