artists evolve. RIP Guru.

Yesterday afternoon I learned of Guru's passing and send love and respect to his family. RIP Guru. Listening to Jazzmatazz and considering Guru's legacy  and eternal art that influenced hip hop in all sorts of fresh ways - I started contemplating art in general and the way it evolves. Every Artist, whether using music, language, film, paint or any of the artistic mediums (there are far too many to count) will improve with time and...

wait. i think i’m learning stuff.

As expressed through some pouty blog bitching... I've been struggling with editing the anthology. Usually the roles of Writer, Editor, and Publisher involve different people - unless you're a disgruntle Writer like me determined to overthrow a system that doesn't toss out free favors. Shout out to all the other Indys doing their thing!! I finally printed off a hard copy of my book yesterday because the only thing I dislike more than editing is...

I dreamt of laughter. Wearing A pulled down hat nearly...

what’s written down. what’s thrown away.

I spent many years as a strictly ink Writer. This was actually a silent protest against publishers, critics, and pretty much the rest of the world. You see, it was critical that I wrote for mySelf and no other. I still believe that once you start creating Art for other people instead of as...

and then i got plagiarized

I kind of figured that once I started posting work all over the Internet I'd get plagiarized sooner or later. The other day I was having a read of other 'Writers' that I've come across since starting my wordly mission back in September. One of the 'Writers' has been posting work over the past few weeks with exact phrases from some of my pieces recently featured here.
