The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

I hear it got up to 80 degrees today. I didn’t notice. I mainly stayed indoors and watched two movies I rented on Netflix, Fire and The Closet. I returned Chuck and Buck on Thursday. Yes, I’m doing themes! This week it’s queer cinema.
Fire, is a lesbian movie set in India. It’s about these two neglected in-laws who are both stuck in loveless marriages who eventually find love in each others arms. It’s neither racy or salacious it was written and directed by a woman.
The Closet is a French film about a straight man who is about to be fired so to prevent being fired he pretends to be gay. I’m not sure if I should feel offended by the premise of the movie or not. I will say that I did enjoy it greatly.
I have to say that I found Chuck and Buck very disturbing on first viewing. After I watch a dvd I like to watch it again with the director’s commentary to get a better insight about the movie. Chuck and Buck had not one but two separate commentaries! In addition to the director’s commentary you also have the film crew’s commentary. After three subsequent viewings I have gained a deeper appreciation of the film. I practically have a PhD in Chuck and Buck. There’s nothing I can do with it. But I know more about Chuck and Buck than you do!
I believe the next three groups of movies I have in my queue all have an interracial theme to them.
