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.

Since I had the day off I watched a Netflix movie that recently arrived. The movie I watched was The Graduate. I ordered it because I saw Rumour Has It... a couple of weeks ago. Also it has been years since I last saw The Graduate. It was still as funny as I recalled it being.
One thing in the movie that I forgot about, that was really cool, was the montage scene done to Simon and Garfunkels, The Sounds of Silence. It was like watching a music video before music videos existed. After watching that I am not surprised that Mike Nichols got a Best Director Oscar for The Graduate.
Immediately, after watching the movie I searched through my vast archive of cd’s and found Simon and Garfunkels Greatest Hits and like the 59th Street Bridge Song, I felt groovy.
