Ok, ok. Hey Bernazky! Where's that week 26 post? It took me forever to post about the big WEEK 26 because I thought I should have made something BIG for all you lovely blog readers out there.
You lovely blog readers who have ask me what week I'm on when I see you and suchlike. You are the best and I keep going on because you are the best.
So, what's to like to be halfway through with this project of mine, you ask? Well, no watching TV has been fairly easy. I'm not into sports, I blackballed CNN from my life after the death of Anna Nicole Smith and I don't have cable. So, I haven't been medicating with TV.
But, Kym, have you taken back your time your eyeballs poured into TV watching?
Kym: Yes. Mostly.
You: Why mostly?
Kym: Because when I give up one addiction - it flips over to another addiction. Movies and documentaries have taken the place of TV. Have I been watching too many of these - probably...
ON THE OTHER HAND...
I have been a busy, little creative beaver. (hee hee - beaver) I have been rolling around in my solo show Plasticland like a pig in.....well....shit. Today, it's been going great. I'm right in the middle of a 4-month residency with The Field. I can see it's happening. I see the show in my mind and it's totally happening.
I was invited to take part in Ann Hamilton's "the event of a thread" at The Park Avenue Armory in NYC. This has been a real savior in my life. It's been fulfilling to be paid and to be the talent for once. The installation is also a real piece of art. It is moving and beautiful and fairly simple. She's folded together all these disparate ideas and they magically go together. It's a lesson I'll be taking with me as I continue Plasticland work. Not to mention, the down-to-earthiness of Ann Hamilton herself. She really loves her piece and wants to be there, living in the dream that she built and swinging all the time.
SO, IF YOU THOUGHT...
Nope. No embarrassing TV relapses.
ONE THING MORE
I am struggling with the weekly project part of my project. My want is to show something tangible that I have done. So, when a week goes by and I don't have an actual thing to show you on my blog, I feel as if I have let you down. Of course, I think I need to be more disciplined with myself about what specific day I write my blog post. (I can make that decision right now - since I quit watching TV on a Sunday - Sundays will be No TV post days. This Sunday - Dec 23 - will be Week 27.) And I have to let go of that All-American feeling of having to have a thing to show you to feel like I've succeeded.
So.....there's that to take apart.
Thanks for your interest, support and otherwise well wishing. I'll keep it going. I have a few things up my sleeve that I'm really looking forward to as the project progresses.
