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.

Today, is the first day of Artscape. For the first time ever I bought one of those portable chairs. I am taking it to work with me. I regularly go to Artscape every year on Friday straight from work. As I’ve written before the light rail stops right dab in the middle of it. I bought the chair a couple of weeks ago at Walmart. I got it so that I could plant it down in the grass where the Sun Stage is. Then after my chair is planted down I can safely go about visiting various sites in the festival. I would like to plant it somewhere near a tree. I hope no one runs off with it.
In all the years I’ve went I’ve never seen anyone steal a chair or a blanket. In a way it’s comparable to the chairs that people leave out after they’ve cleared there parking space after a snowstorm.
The only big thing I hope is that it doesn't rain. I would hate that I went through all the trouble to buy a chair and lug it all the way to work for nothing.
Today’s big acts are Isaac Hayes and The Commodores. Yeah, I know it’s not the original lineup of The Commodores but I don’t care. A couple of years ago I saw Kool and the Gang and was shocked to later learn that it was not the original line up. They sounded just like Kool and the Gang. I didn’t know that anything was different until I did an internet search on them after the show. I trust that The Commodores will still be good even without Lionel Ritchie. I wonder if they still have that British guy in the group?
