Greetings to those who may stumble upon this. I am in the process of making this a daily habit, an online journal, and hopefully the basis of a book someday. If you’re interested in anything at all, you’ll probably dig this, as my musings are quite varied. Enjoy.
…with Kevin on the new Montgomery ledge, but before that we went out to Lori’s and I had Chili Cheese Fries and a Coke. I am getting soft in the middle. I talked with Tizz today I’m so very excited that she’s coming to visit me here in San Fran. I read a lot today of the Borden Book, re-set up my accounts at hypermodern.net and looked for more jobs. I got about 5 leads and tomorrow I’m headed out to Ripon and I’ll get footage and things, then work all Monday & Tuesday.
Performance art acts as a memory the moment the performance is over. The user takes a memory away along with pamphlet, but in the case of “Free memory” The user takes away a physical memory which they can continually interact with.
Things are getting better people are dropping out of classes, Betsy gave me a ride up to campus today. Big digger skateboarding and same elbow, then SF Jam on the doggie. P.S. got modem installed, need phone card.
Checked out some contemporary art Moca Schlammer and Performance 1949-1979 then called people on the phone. Talked to Mr. Deneault, DB Tried Natalie W got to talk with Carlan and also Francisco and Katie & Sarah Pierson and left a message for Les.
I met a guy who skates down the hall Kevin, he gave be an old desk but it’s ugly and white, I may get rid of it. Anywho, I talked to him a bit and baked bread. Tomorrow I’m watching the Simpsons with Becky and her BF and some other dude. Tomorrow I’m gonna hit the ol farmers market. Today I almost at a worm. NASTY.
Pretty early night, but they have been busy days. No class today because there was no lecturer this weekend. I went to the color photo orientation session and took care of email in the morning. The problem is, I have to still do the Black and White tutorial and I can’t do that till the next Friday. I got my other books today and was disgusted at what they cost.
I met up with the first person I met here (the nurse from Ireland) and we chatted for a while about my plan of action and what I was/am planning to do. I also read today and took notes as well as wrote tizz a letter on a typewriter (in the SFAI Library). Something that I don’t think I’ve ever done.
I also went to the gallery and talked with Eirik the photo major, second year. We have talked before and I may help him paint the darkroom later this weekend. There was one piece that really struck me at the gallery Donna Rocke Pache (?) in Neon basket weaving. Also the gloves / american flag piece, very striking.
I talked with Magnolia today as well and got invited to the student union Thursdays noon to one, and on the 10th of September there will be a “town meeting” sot of thing. She recommended that I talk with Larry Thomas, he’s acting as the interim president and academic affairs vice president. I’m going to calm down this weekend, organize my thoughts and get an appointment midweek, and If I don’t get I know I am someone who will mobilize students. I did computer training and skated and met Colin, an undergrad film maker from seattle who skates. Talked to Tizz and called Betsy if she wanted to dance, but no answer. Was asked If I wanted to go to third street to get a drink but I don’t have a good way of getting there. Rides=bad idea.
I started my day with a nice breakfast and went to the library at the end of Market Street. Very striking interior. I went up to the 6th floor after I got a new card (from a women who had the biggest midsection I’d ever seen. She was incredible and helpful and I looked at Thrasher and Track & Field news. I checked the U.S Nationals, I’ve jumped against 4 of the competitors. C. Clinger, N. Leaper, T. Harris and D.Olson. Leaper won at 7′ 7.5″ or so. He’s 25 which makes me wonder if I could still get in the game. I would need to find a coach again and a place to work out, but it’s so tough to give up something you love. I hate even writing that down….”give up”. I love high jump and I was to be part of the track and field community, but I’ve not work out for nearly a year. I stopped last November.
Anyway I went to 3rd street via 7th, 16th and 3rd it’s fretty fast. I was extremely disappointed to find out that class has 38 students in it we spent the entire time working out when we would have review. I am generally upset that SFAI has given so many half-truths not even the teachers know how big their classes are going to be.
