Death of a Snailsman

idahomarked

Every day you have to wake up and find your own screwed up way to make peace with the world.

Sometimes night comes fast though, and there’s nothing in sight.

So look around, gather what you can from life,

And make a screwed up peace with yourself.

From the notebook, whatever this is.

It makes more sense if you listen to this song.

(It doesn’t really I just wanted to trick you into listening to The Four Tops because you looked like you needed it)

This should be prefaced with an explanation. It’s not. I’m sorry.

Gummi Blare

fuckbook2 fuckbook3 fuckacover

Sometimes I’m sad, but I’m happy I’m sad. I think being able to feel anything makes me one of the lucky ones. Some people can’t feel sad, just empty. Other people have died and can’t feel anything at all. I feel grateful just that I can lift up my eyelids and see things, anything. I know people younger than me who didn’t make it that far today.

I wish I could tell other people how not to be sad, but nobody can. It’s better to listen instead. So that’s what I’m going to do, listen.

Hope you like the fake book cover, like all things it has no purpose.

And hey, I’m moving to Los Angeles at the end of this month! Pretty big deal for a kid from small town Idaho.

You Say Gelato

ICED-CREAM

What am I some kind of new age yuppie existentialist? Nay, I am a pirate, crucified on the pillars of apathy. A fat pacific tuna, drifting through the waters of a french film noir. An anxious floorboard in Ted Nugent’s abandoned Manhatten loft. An enigma. You think you know me, but you don’t, you never will. You have no idea what I’m saying, or why I accompanied this post with an insultingly out of season ice cream illustration. When you are crying in your car on the way to work tomorrow you remember that feeling. Nothing means anything, and so everything means something.

And if today you let a sink in, make sure it’s not that.

Nightcrawler

nighcrawler7MEDIUMSSSS

Nightcrawler was a strange and dark movie, a movie with no good guys and an ending that makes you feel relieved and guilty at the same time. Naturally I loved it, so I made this poster based on the camera used by Jake Gyllenhaal in the film. Maybe nobody saw the film, I’m not sure, but I hope you enjoy the poster anyways.

In Which I Issue A Redaction

I must apologize for a previous post in which I commented on the moral character of those who enjoy everything bagels. As it turns out, my girlfriend rather adores these crispy golden brown rejects.

Not to worry though, I made her this, that we may find peace between our great bagel kingdoms.

Rabitibbar

I drew a rabbit. Then I made a rabbit pattern. Then I used it on a book. No politics, no religion, no philosophy, no humor, it’s a rabbit. If you were looking for something that wasn’t a rabbit, I’m sorry to disappoint you. It’s just a rabbit. It’s not even a well drawn rabbit. It’s a rabbit. A rabbit. Rabbit is starting to look weird, It’s sort of a weird word. Rab, bit. RABBIT. RABBITRABBITRABBIT.

Everything Bagels Suck, If You Like Them You Are A Bad Person.

initiation

I wrote a lot of different things here that weren’t related to each other but then I deleted them. No worries though, I feel that the image above from my notebook pretty clearly describes what I was trying to communicate to you.
 
I also noticed that if I make a typo while writing these posts, rather than clicking back to where the typo is I will just backspace all the way back to the typo, re-write it, and then re-write the rest of the text again. So there’s that.
 
I hope you found all of this educational.

Not An Answer

imstillherefin

I heard these words a long time ago in the movie Treasure Planet and they always stuck with me. I like repeating them to myself whenever I feel judged, embarrassed, anxious, hopeless, whatever. I like remembering my arms still move, words still come out of my mouth, brains still on. Nobody’s taken anything from me and unless they kill me dead they never could. I exist, I’ll keep existing. You can love it, I can love it, you can hate it, I can hate it, doesn’t matter, still here. Still gonna be here. Still enjoying it up, down, sideways, standing still. Still stilling.

Your move universe.

Vicarious

nothingleft2

If you were watching a movie about your life right now what would you want the main character to do? I never thought the answer to that question had to be particularly grand or larger than life. After all some of my favorite movies don’t have any heroes or explosions. In fact I think the only wrong answer to that question has been nothing. The only wrong thing you could ever do is nothing. I mean if I go out and something horrible happens to me, that’s a pretty interesting story. If I go out and something great happens to me that’s pretty interesting too. The only story I don’t want to watch is one where the main character does nothing. That and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Seriously that movie was horrible.

 

So to recap: nothing, or anything that happened in Transformers: Age of Extinction.

 

Now go direct your own movie.

Into Darkness

lookbutdonttouch

Try to imagine the distant future. Don’t just imagine a world with flying cars and faster computers. Imagine a world that is offensive to us, and yet correct. Imagine a world where people possess not things but ideas we’ve never had. Imagine something you can’t imagine. That is the future.
