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.

VIRGIN FESTIVAL DAY ONE
The Beastie Boys looked like nice clean men. Loved the suits. They looked pretty classy. As I was walking around the grounds I could have sworn I saw a man who looked a little like Kirk McKuen formerly of the 98 Rock Morning Show. Everytime I go to events like this I find myself looking around to see if there are any other people of colour around. I saw a couple. So I was not the only black girl there. I also saw a man who looked like Kirk McKuen. I guess it was OK for him to be because in truth the event was sponsored by Virgin Mobile not 98 Rock who advertised the concert adnauseum. Also WTMD was promoting as well. It was not the HFStival. Which I believe McKuen was spotted at several years ago. The HFStival was a concert festival that was put on by the legendary now defunct WHFS.
I hope that Richard Branson, the crazy billionaire that owns Virgin, decides to hold the concert again next year in Baltimore. However, next year I hope its held in September like last years concert was. I do not recall the weather being so brutal last year. Or perhaps they could hold it in May like the the HFStival was held.
Overall best dressed band goes to the Beastie Boys. I was not sure how I would be let in for the next day because I bought a two day pass. They just give you one ticket. Sadly, I had to miss my new favourite group, The Fratelli’s due to fear of heat. When they hit the stage the sun will be at maximum strength. Also missed the legendary Cheap Trick. I have a couple of their songs on my iPod. I have Surrender, The Dream Police, and I Want You To Want Me. I have no plans of ever downloading their wimpy power ballad comeback song, The Flame. I’m not that sensitive of a chick. Remember my all time favourite band is The Clash and The Clash never did any wimpy power ballads. All their stuff is uptempo.
