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 spent Christmas Eve at the Owings Mill Mall sequestered in their movie theater. The movie I saw was Capote. Philip Seymour Hoffman rocked! I loved how Hoffman handled the shades of grey in Capotes personality. I felt that Catherine Keener was under whelming in the role of writer Harper Lee. I do not feel that this was any fault of Keeners. Its just that Harper Lee was not known to have a fire cracker of a personality. In real life she was kind of dowdy and retiring. Overall, the movie was good.
For me personally, it seems as though every Christmas eve I find myself in a movie theater fresh from shopping with various newly bought bags of gifts around me. I do not want to stop this personal Christmas Eve tradition I have started. In past years I have seen Lord of The Rings and the Harry Potter movies in this fashion. I dont know. To me nothing says its Christmas Eve, quite like being in a movie theater carrying a dozen packages while trying to balance a soda and a box of popcorn.
