So, yeah, I went to see Savage-a-Go-Go last Friday with the lovely Miss Z, of Knits by Zoe.
(NB: The next Savage-a-Go-Go show is November 30th; if you’re in Wisconsin–I don’t care where you are–y’all should come.)
It was A-MAZ-ING! Seriously, like whoa. The music was fantastic; there was a nice mix of silly and sensuous and gore (It was a Halloween show after all.). The ladies (and gentlemen, ’cause there’s a few lads) are all incredibly talented and are having a fabulous time.
That is maybe my only complaint: not always being able to track down songs that I really like later. Some I’ve heard recently enough that I can track them down, but sometimes, I’ve only heard them a couple of times.
I WANT PLAYLISTS DAMMIT!
…of course, they could totally be posted on the Facebook page, and I just don’t stalk it enough to see. <–Facebook makes my head hurt a lot of the time, tbh. *should probably go look*
And, a video of one of their other performances!
Okay, so on the squid-art front, I’ve been spinning through just about everything I have to spin that I haven’t already cleaned, carded, and dyed. *sigh* That’s going to be happening soon, isn’t it? *eyes studio warily*
Please, don’t mind the mess. My studio desperately needs to be cleaned
and reorganized. Again.
I also have some commission spinning waiting for me, but I’ve been having problems sitting down to do it (probably because it doesn’t have a due date).
I WILL SPIN ON IT TONIGHT! *is resolved, see my Resolved Face?*
But, that’s because it’s the new Quarter at the ARTgarage Meet The Artist–thingie. So, yeah, I’ll be there demo-ing in my corner feeling kinda meh because, most of the time, people are interested in seeing me spin rather than seeing my art. <–The problem in being a conceptual artist in Wisconsin, yo. *is kinda frustrated*
So, yeah, if y’all are free tonight–and, ya know, in the area–Opening at the ARTgarage from 5-8.
And, since we’re chatting about the ARTgarage, my November Bookmaking class (Nov. 10th and 11th) is running. I think the book-types are going to be insta-book, accordion/concertina, pamphlet, basic codex, Japanese stab-binding, and altered (via folding). What do y’all thing? Good types that can easily be worked from?
Also, because I actually don’t suck for once, it seems like my November drop spindle class is running too (Nov. 13th)!
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE WORLD?
Okay, enough of that. I swear I am working on art, but it’s all in these really weird early forms at the moment that I haven’t taken pictures of. Soon, my precious. Soon.
And, I still owe y’all a poetry post. <–Which may very well relate to my next Quarter’s offerings.
