the boy from chernobyl
2013 seems to have been an atrocity for a lot of people, but for me it's been pretty great. I definitely accomplished my new year's resolution of having more sex, though the coffee table I broke on new years day was to be the only coffee table I would break all year.
*Co-wrote a sitcom pilot (although it did not win the contest for which we wrote it. If anyone wants to produce a sitcom about a trans guy and a genderqueer in an English village full of hippies, please contact me.)
*Wrote a three act play (although it did not win the contest for which I wrote it. If anyone wants to produce a play about lesbian flapper ghosts and what it means to be an artist, please contact me.)
*Began work on a chamber opera. (If anyone wants to produce a chamber opera about a lonely cosmonaut which draws a parallel between starlight and memory being both persistent images of that which no longer exists, please contact me.)
*Started painting/drawing again (after a hiatus of about eight years, so this is kind of a big deal.)
*Began or continued work on three separate Tarot projects (The tarot deck I started working on ten+ years ago, a space opera themed deck I plan to do in water colours as soon as I figure out how to paint in water colours, and the selfie tarot, which would consist entirely of pictures of me.)
*played music in front of actual people.
*composed an experimental 16 movement piece of generative music on the magnus, some of which will probably be used in an upcoming independent film by some kid I met on Tumblr, which looks fantastic based on a few stills and the synopsis he sent me.
*I'm seriously almost done with The Land Below.
*Have been in a (non-exclusive) relationship for over a year, which breaks my personal record by about ten months (And it will likely continue until August, when she moves into a cabin in Oregon and goes full Walden.)
*Two threesomes in one day (both of which were slightly disappointing, as threesomes often are.)
*94 followers on tumblr, one of which is a Gelert Grindelwald RPer. Check out http://darkartsandcrafts.tumblr.com/ if you are interested.
*Rediscovered the Symbolists.
*Made some new friends and reconnected with some people I'd lost touch with, though keeping in contact is still a struggle.
*spent over $100 on art supplies, so I can't stop painting even if I wanted to.
*went to see the Bowie exhibit, including most of his stage costumes, in Toronto, which is somehow much larger and more awesome than I expected it to be, though I had been there several times as a child/adolescent.
2014 accomplishments: I am currently drinking Prosecco.
I don't spend as much time here as I used to and haven't talked to most of you guys in a while, but even though we're not in a writer's group or a band or the same city anymore, it would be great to hear from you.
