Been very busy! But that’s okay. But I’ve been busy!
Appeared at Crack Festival a couple of times, twice for stagejuice and freshly squeezed and once as part of a disastrously riotous debate between Artists vs Critics. I was all prepared for 5 minute academic discussion as I was in favour of the critics. However, I had misjudged the event. By the end of it, I had beaten a girl at arm wrestling (HA!), and did some terrible rant about Fred Durst, and dropped a few “new” words in front of an 8 year old, but damn, it was pretty fun to watch. Critics got the last word, and – the way it should be – critics won.
In short, artists have the responsibility to be good artists, the same way that critics have the responsibility to be good critics.
Here’s a poem with incorrect formatting, used for the stagejuice freshly squeezed performance jam, with the right amount of abstract images for other people to take their own ideas from, and… and nothing else! Enjoy!
As a sound breaks in revolution
hitting air particles
A brief flash
a momentary relapse
a question reasked
The same shape
just in pieces
a different colour
Fit a lot in a suitcase
You can hug it but you wouldn’t
And if you would
It fades away
Light a match to see a lip curl
Burn a photo to see your memory turn to flames and see
an echo dissipate
An echo of a thing
– Scott Sandwich
