Dangerous Compassions

I’d like a master’s degree in wheatpasting, graffiti, murals, stenciling, street art, and trains.  Yeah, for science, definitely!  Hahahaha!

Oh hey, here’s something about wheatpasting.  Seems a good primer.  I appreciate it.


Ming, two other friends, and I made a collaborative art together.  Guess which part I made?


Yep, you guessed it.  I drew the big-handed bike dude.  I felt pretty psychedelic.  Ming drew the dog-snake.  Yeah, cute and a half!

Then we played a round of telephone pictionary.  It had been, uh, six years or something.  So fun to teach the game to friends.  So hilarious.  This is one I started.

Also I can’t get over how gorgeously Ming uses language.  His weird-ass syntax would giggle me, if only that.

The other friends suggested we go another round, but I was mirthed out.  Social joy had overmuched me, and I needed to depart and wind down, if I ever wanted to sleep again.  But I hope we can play again soon.

If one purpose of a game is to get to know your friends better, this game works like a charm.  And it requires little materials, no prep, almost free to play.  Great game!

There’s some Chilean hiphop I thought you might like.  It’s blowing me away.  There’s a line I heard: this country “gave birth to a nightmare, then abandoned the baby.”  And, “Why kill the physical when y’all can murder the mental?”  Oooo, felt spot on, uncommonly so.

Love to your journey.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
