GJ Willis' Art Notes
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.

TRYING TO CHEER MYSELF UP
Anyway, Dr, Horrible’s Sing Along Blog is a three part musical staring Neil Patrick Harris. By the way, I think Harris is really funny on How I Met Your Mother. The other actor in the movie is the star of Firefly and Jason Bateman lookalike, Nathan Fillion. I really liked him as Joey on One Life to Live and as Captain Mal Reynolds on Firefly. The show also has a female alum from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Felicia Day, as the love interest.
The movie comes in three parts. I watched the first two parts today the last part comes out on Saturday. Then after that it will only be available as a download for sale on iTunes. All in all its 45 minutes long. The three part web episodes are each just 15 minutes long.
Overall I have nothing but love for the movie. I found myself rooting for Neil Patrick Harris’ geeky loveable bad and hissing Nathan Fillion’s jerk of a good guy.

MORE DEATH IN THE FAMILY
I have a possibly crazy theory. It seems that every year that a Batman movie comes out a member of my family dies. The only exception I can think of is when the first Christopher Nolan directed Batman starring Christian Bale came out. That year no Willis died.
Its stupid and silly but it seems to be eerily accurate. Off the top of my head my mother, and my Uncle Stanley, Cousin Guy, and Aunt Gloria all passed away in a year that a Batman movie came out. Its like whenever its a year that a Batman movie comes out its an almost guaranteed lock that someone in my family buys the farm. Sadly, this year three Willis’ have passed away. Overall, This is shaping up to be a bad year in the Willisdom.
Despite this eery occurrence, Batman is still my favourite comic book hero. I will probably see the movie as I have the other Batman flicks.
A side note my father never liked the 60s Batman TV show. He felt it was too cartoonish. He preferred the more serious version of the character that he read in the comic books. I do not know what his opinion was of the Tim Burton or Joel Schumacher or even Christopher Nolan versions as I never asked it. But I would wager that he loathed the Joel Schumacher version and would have praised Christopher Nolans recent efforts. Dad liked his Batman to be straight up serious and no joke

For now on I will try to get to work at my usual time of 7 instead of my new start time of 7:30. Im starting to feeling too anxious and like crying. I almost broke down as I was lookin for my glasses this morning. Luckily, I found a pair of my old glasses that have not worn since the 90s. So I have those on.
