Through the layering of digital prints, printed cloth and paint, this work in progress seeks to capture and explore the intricacies of identity in a Caribbean context. The use of collage is a means of acknowledging and examining the complexity of being.

The top image is on my inspiration board. I LOVE it.

It’s Friday! Time for another ’tru-ish’ tale about Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#43)! This week: A Question of Priorities… or YES, I DID ANOTHER COMIC STRIP THAT TAKES PLACE AT THE LION’S LAIR.

The World Famous Lion’s Lair… No frills space for a beer and a shot. The bar has been there for years (I hear various stories, but can be traced back to the 50’s or 20s [as a dancehall] depending who you ask) and to me, best represents what Colfax Avenue is: barebones, down low, dirty place full of stories and awesome characters. 

This was also one of the first bars I found myself in when I finally moved to Denver (living only a couple blocks away also helps). Not only had I been hearing about that place for years (even before I started visiting the city), but at that first night there was able to see one of the best, most welcoming (at least to me) events after I’d only been living in the Mile High City for less than a month. If Denver was some sort of communicable disease, I got it that night from the sheer press of the crowd around me. Yes, it was Slim Cessna’s Auto Club show in such an intimate setting. 

Yes, I used the word ‘intimate’ which in all ways seems wrong. It kind of brings to mind singer/songwriters strumming on acoustic guitars, singing about their lost cat by candlelight… which is totally not the case if you’ve ever set foot in the place. The size of the Lair is so small that you can be punched on one side of the bar and still hit the wall of the other, likely hitting a half a dozen band stickers that have been placed there over the years (I can still find the sticker of a local Philly band that I saw many times in the 90’s among the collection of band debris scattered over the Lair’s walls). That first night, and most other nights I’ve been there for shows are cramped, beer soaked, rowdy, near riots. People yelling for drinks or at each other; booze being tossed onto the floor, over the patrons, and down their gullets; shoving matches that could be called dancing or drunken stumbles; and music blaring over everything, demanding some attention. Events that have to be experienced to be believed. 

… so there it is. (I’m sure I was at that show as well.) 

… Ready… Set…  Musical Accompaniment… and GO!

SHARE AND ENJOY!

I had a little temper tantrum today. It was productive though.

I discovered that I am alone in this world. 100%. I also discovered that I am going to be a vet tech and move to Portland this summer.


Roll over Bukowski

No one will replace my father
So FUUUCK YOOOU!!!


Sitting in my driveway. The sky is nice tonight.
I watched the documentary about Kathleen Hanna on Netflix and got called a cum dumpster tonight.
I’m angry.
The revolution is coming.

Courts keep striking them down, yet states keep passing 20-week abortion bans. Mississippi might be next.

I have no desire
I can’t feel a thing
I just want to make him happy
Daddy’s little girl
Daddy’s little girl
Daddy’s girl don’t wanna be
His whore no more
Food
Shelter
Love
I need to hold my tongue
I need to hold my tongue
Didn’t know I’d have to lose so much
For Daddy’s love
Didn’t know I’d have to lost myself
For Daddy’s touch
Listen!
Listen!
Listen!
Daddy has something to say
He has something for you to do
And he wants it done right now
And he wants you to do it his way
