Art, Music, Get-Togethers, and Basquiat.

Friday, January 27, 2006

Not much new to report. Just been locked in the studio doing new projects. I've promised demos to a few European labels, so I'm just trying to finish this stuff and get it out. I'm feeling the 4/4 again, so that's been my focus lately. My approach is a little different this time, musically. Hopefully, you'll be able to hear the results.

Also been doing artwork. I've got a commissioned painting I have to start on. This beautiful lady from London saw the big paintings from my Paris show, went insane, got a hold of me and hired me to do one of her in my style. She's paying real money, too. 2006 is definitely looking up.

No real plans for the weekend. A friend of mine, Jimmy, is having a get-together on the South Side that I'm going to, that's about it. I haven't seen this guy since I got back.

This girl I know in Houston is going to see the Basquiat exhibit down there. That's where it went after it left L.A., of all places.

I'm jealous. Which is a rare thing.

Speaking of Basquiat, Giaxia bought me a copy of the "Beat Bop" record that Basquiat did back in the '80s. They've reissued it with a 2' x 2' poster inside. I remember in the '90s when I used to go to NYC a lot to spin, I would look for Basquiat stuff and people didn't know who I was talking about. It was all Warhol and Haring. Now, his stuff is everywhere.

Giaxia said it best: "His dad must be broke."
