I am, principally, an artist. I've been a guitarist for seven years, studying a variety of forms including classical, rock, blues, and jazz. I've been writing fiction since I can remember, and I am currently studying film as an undergraduate at Berry College. As such, I have a great love and appreciate of art. With this comes also a bitterness and angst about art done badly. This is, essentially, an outlet for both manifestations.
Some of you, I imagine, lie awake at night searching for meaning like I do. Perhaps some of you have the distant glimmers of a dream that might make life everything you ever hoped it could be, and everything you knew it could be.

Both will occur here. I have an appreciation of art well-done, of a truly well-crafted film or an album with real passion behind it. Contrarily, I hold deep bitterness about these things done poorly or lazily. However, there is an equal chance that this blog will serve as a forum for any of the random things that might cross my mind.
