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, for fun I checked up on how the music career of James Blunt is doing in the States. Also today for the first time ever I watched the video to Youre Beautiful in its entirety. I had no idea that it was slightly morbid in tone. It appears that at the end of the song Blunt commits suicide. Despite this somewhat disturbing imagery I still love the song and feel that there is a strong possibilty that it might make Top 10 on the Pop Charts.
So far his cd, Back To Bedlam has gone gold!! He is number 6 on the US adult contemporary charts with Youre Beautiful! He also has just cracked the Top 40 Pop singles charts with Youre Beautiful! I even heard Youre Beautiful played on the very mainstream MIX106.5 Looks like James Blunt is on his way!!
One interesting gossipy thing I learned is that he has allegedly broken up with his long term girlfriend and is now dating Jessica Sutta of the Pussycat Dolls. I am not 100% sure but I think they might be a singing group that consists of strippers.
