that bit when Munch started fucking with the first camera he owned and created art.
I do find this fascinating. There are a number of artists (obviously) who were around when cameras started becoming easily available to the general public and I've noticed that whoever they are, even those that you might think of as fairly conservative or traditional, they almost immediately start fucking with the thing, doing double-exposures and putting the film in wrong or whatever to see what happened. I've seen quite a few bits and bobs exhibited as curios in a side room when you have a retrospective of some guy's career. To me it shows how endlessly inventive many artists were in that I'm sure such a thing would have never occurred to me in years (or not deliberately) but anyone good is into it in a few seconds. I believe in fact Munch may have been trying to recreate the effect of an injured eye that he had sustained or perhaps that is someone else, whatever.

Holidays are such a time of melancholy, disappointment

It gets built up people want perfect days and don't get them, or they're so hell bent on perfection it causes conflict

Or the nostalgia of past dates

Or an image of what the day is supposed to be, warm and candles and loved ones huddled around

Holidays me and my mom would always clash, growing up. Not because we were spending more time together stuck together than usual, just because she wanted, pushed for, things to be perfect, the things stop being fun and casual you know

We will spend it with my family who all live local, there will be 8 of us. And then on boxing day we see my wife's mum and her new boyfriend

Fillet of beef, roast spuds, limit on £ spent, films, actual sleep

New Year’s day is clan/Tribe gathering, the point is to make the midwinter period relaxed, not stressed as fuck wanting to kill

we're heading back to Massachusetts to stay with my sister for six days. always pretty relaxed at this point, since there are no kids and we're all just happy to still be alive.

want to avoid crowded trains, so we're renting a car. when you don't own a car, the occasional long-distance drive is fun. first you battle the city traffic to get out of the area (Waze is your friend), then kick back and cruise a straight shot up Route 95. the wife is tasked with figuring out how to sync the iPhone with the car stereo system so we can listen to the Dissensus compilation along the way.
