hey batter batter!!!!

mixed media and found objects on altered postcard (for shaun)

took a swing at the 60+ los angeles art openings over the weekend. i'm afraid we're amateurs, as we only poked our heads in about 4. quality, not quantity as i always say. first stop was the george billis gallery in culver city, to finally lay my eyes on carol es's buttery creations..i informed her that i'm stalking her, but i don't carry a gun, so not to worry. that goes for you, too mat!

oh, did i mention that steve buscemi was there?
but, honestly, the art was the star at this gathering.

on to bergamot station in santa monica, where we took in the art of bill barminski at the berman/turner projects. this is visceral painting at it's best. the iconic graphics pulled me in, but i lost all sense of time and space gazing at the markings, paint strokes and endless layers upon layers of textures. we were fortunate enough to speak with bill, as one of chuck's friends just happened to be there and know him.

was feasting my eyes on greg lamarche's collages in track 16 across the complex, when the light's flashed on and off. last call for art...probably just as well, as my brain was on auto pilot and eyes glazed over from all the stimulation. and i only had ONE glass of wine last night, what the hell? i better check my temperature..

ooooooooooo. i'd love that!!!!!!!! anytime!!!!!!
i'm still not 100% sure how to get around this town...but, with you in the navigation seat???? we'll give it our best shot!!!!!! you can SO stay with us!!!!

i was JUST talking with chuck about your travel show idea yesterday. he was thinking you might be able to get some kind of pilot or sample show shot on public access TV. (do you have that in s.d.?) and then you would have something to pitch. he also said there might be some kind of a convention that scopes for new TV material. if i get more info, i'll pass it along..

EEEP! please do! kevin and i have been researching grants, pbs (..which is wher emy idea originally came from - i'm obsessed with rick steves & globetrekker!), travel guidebooks, etc!

i'm not sure if we have any public access stations, tho? (not that we've found?)

i'm having such trouble getting a concrete idea together tho?! i figure, i think, that the best way to go about it would be to actually DO a pilot show, and then work from there. the only problem is, we dont own any video equipment, or know anyone that does. and kevin can do sound, and i'd be great with the hosting/planning, buuut..

yeh! i'm gonna be the "rick steves" of the NEW generation!!!! ;) any help would be greatly appreciated! :) :) :) :)

hang on..i'm doing a bit of research myself, but i don't wanna speak too soon.
even though chuck's in video, i don't think it's the right type of equipment you're looking for. i'm such a geek..i don't know much about all of this..but, if you're just looking for a video camera? well, i've got one of those. but, i think you're looking for something higher quality. like TV quality.

that's why i think the public access route might be the way to go. they'll have all the equipment you need. let me get back to you, probably via email..but, if you're in a searching mood..and i know you are...there's adelphia cable access in santa monica, CA, i believe. maybe you could find more info online.

i think it's a VERY good idea and you have such charisma and energy. you'd make a GREAT host!!!!
