The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

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.

It looks like Im on time this morning. The only reason for this is because I took a cab down to the light rail station. I was not sure if I had enough money to pay the cabbie. Luckily, the driver was African and he asked me up front how much I wanted to pay. All I had was five dollars. I said five dollars and paid him when I got out the cab. He asked if I was heading for the airport. Which was logical as it is the day before Thanksgiving. I told him, “I was going to work in Hunt Valley.” Unfortunately, he did not offer to drive me there for the five bucks gave I gave him. The train arrived slightly earlier than usual. I think the main reason the bus did not arrive at its usual time is that most likely the regular LL Cool J looking driver took the day off.

I did not watch anything last night. I spent the night adding entries to my blog from October. Basically, I write something everyday but am slow to upload it because I like to look things over before I publish them to the web.

I can say that I plan on watching Pushing Daisies and either Life or Dirty, Sexy, Money in real time. I can do this because I have tomorrow off due to Thanksgiving.

As far as other shows go I am now two episodes behind on Everybody Hates Chris and I have not watched last nights episode of House,MD. To the best of my knowledge there is no show currently running on Wednesday night at 9pm that I want to watch.

I think the main reason my TV viewing has picked up is because I have only recently realised that I can watch TV on my computer. The main reason I do not watch regular TV is because I am busy at night either working on my art or writing.

Last fall I kind of got into watching Greys Anatomy but as weeks weared on I found myself drifting away from it. The main reason being was that I would get caught up in doing something then forget that I was supposed to watch Greys Anatomy.

It was only recently that I discovered that I could watch TV shows on delay on the internet. Heck, I watched an entire season of Doctor Who on th internet. I watched episodes the day after they originally aired in the UK. I also watched two seasons of Life on Mars on the internet. So I was aware of who John Simm was before he was cast as the Master on Doctor Who. Over the summer I watched early episodes of Heroes that I missed. I only started watching Heroes when Christopher Ecclestons episodes began airing in late January. So I had no idea what had previously occurred on the show before his arrival.

Then this season I got the idea that I would comb TV reviews to see what shows would be good to watch. From this I decided to follow Life mainly because of the brilliantly talented Damien Lewis, Pushing Daisies because Anna Friel was in it and it has a whimsical feel. Moonlight, got horrible reviews but I watch it anyway because I have a thing for vampire detective shows. I have to admit that the pilot episode of Moonlight was horrendous but felt that the show would eventually pick up because uber talented David Greenwaldt was hired as the show runner. Greenwaldt, previously was show runner for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Sad to learn that he had to leave Moonlight due to a catastrophic illness he is suffering from. Moonlight as I predicted with the Greenwaldt infulence has substantially picked up.

I started watching Journeyman because at first I thought it would be a cheap knock off of Quantum Leap meets Life on Mars but soon fell in love with it. Journeyman is a great show but NBC does next to nothing to promote it.

I watch Dirty, Sexy, Money because it looked like it would be tongue in cheek soap opera fun. However, Im thinking about dropping the show. Main reason being I do not understand the motivation of Blair Underwoods character, Simon Elder.

Today, I have on a brown mock turtleneck, blue jeans, New Balance 653 shoes, and a black cardigan sweater.
