Considering that, among the podcasters I follow, there is one that is making a comeback after three years. Having been off the job through the new years, macworld, and a whole boat load of craziness that has transpired since then. Its been quiet, literally! When I started the daily blog for the SEA SHOW back in November 2008, <it is combined with an archived personal blog> I opted for as they happen alerts on breaking news stories, in a number of different topics, art and otherwise, that interest me.

Needless to say,  I was sifting across a number of links in earnest, trying to lower the growing total of unread messages in my inbox. I have an art vlog, and two to three other video projects, being a daily blogger is no joke but I’ve tried to give it a good run. :->

Since some of the unread mail is some left over Art Basel coverge from December that I had to sort through, there were some cool blog posts with a lot of photos. I really enjoy blogs with lots of photos, and of course if you’re going to critque art at least make a semi-rational and thought-out argument. I read a lot of “reviews” that don’t give me anything, but the ones I do find I enjoy, so I like to include them for you to peruse.

Maybe its because I am playing more games, love colorful things or objects that don’t appear to be art upon initial inspection, but a series of images with paper and art made themselves noticable to me in the process of skimming over articles, deciding which were from art websites worth keeping in my bookmarks or simply something strange on a blog will stand out to me, even if its somewhere you wouldn’t expect to find it, like a blog that may be based on something other than modern art – but may still yet be very interesting to look at. Others I visit, and just happened to be entranced by a particular image or a pleasant feeling I enjoy while I am exploring a cool new art website.

I found this image above in one of the articles that was tagged ‘basel’ and sent to my inbox. Its a bunch of pictures of art show and gallery parties in South Beach, definitely the sort of Miami Art Basel coverage I am interested! I’ve been keeping somewhat of any eye on things despite the lapse in my daily musings, and Art Basel is slowly making its way into the news. It seems like its an item of interest all year round! I could use

Either way, it was really good to get back into the groove at things in the art world, coming and going.  Keep it tuned, and we’ll try to do our best walking on the edges of art. In the future, I’ll try to do more daily posts.

They won’t be as extensive as they used to be, but I’ll continue to do what you enjoy the most, learning and commenting on contemporary art, and this is the place you will come to learn about quirky tidbits like the a strange new niche I have blogged about previously that just keeps coming up, that being Obama Art. Try a search on the SEA SHOW blog and see what you come up with when you search for Obama!

I had a busier night that usual since I wasn’t glued to my computer yesterday. It was a most relaxing evening nontheless. This morning was a little more of a challenge, I ate some marinated food yesterday and when I woke my stomach hurt. Rolling around to find a comfortable position only the pain worsening, resulting in me ending up in a sweaty ball on the floor of my bathroom. I should have gone with my instinct in my initial dislike of the marinated olives. Better now, but I felt bad about missing my daily art blog post. I have part of it saved so I will post that tonight for you to peruse at your leisure.

Free Sheep Foundation – Hallway . From 11.26.2008 SEA SHOW SHOOT

This is an introduction to a new facet of our daily blog. We hope to start releasing 1 to 2 short videos a month. Since many of these are part of longer pieces, can be multicamera shoots, its difficult to manage releasing them a lot, but we will strive to include some of these. In the coming days you will see video for this week’s show, and a preview of what you can expect to see more of this Thursday night, when the painter Dr. JohnnyWOW! gives us another installment of his talk/performance art.

If you haven’t visited our youtube site, please visit or sign up and become a subscriber and know the instant I upload a video. Chances are, it is 6am and you are still in bed when that message hits your mailbox. Better yet, subscribe to my RSS feed and get my blogs the moment they happen and cut out the middle man.

There is so much energy at artwalk each month, I’ll be glad to get back into it this month. In two days, I’m excited to visit 619 Western and say hello to Dr. JohnnyWOW!, who will debut the latest incarnation of his artistic approach.There will of course be a recording of this, and we’ll be showing video of the artist giving his talk earlier this month that night too. Video everywhere. Too much fun.

This blog will be part local adventures in emerging art forms, part news commentary. I still don’t visit any site with regularity, but my small numbers are steady day to day, so as we increase our readership and I get better at making sense and choosing good topics, you’ll see things improve.

The first vlogs you will see are works-in-progress for recent shows and upcoming events, like the one I’ll be showing video at and taping at this Thursday, December 4th. After that you’ll see more segments of 28 minutes episodes I plan on submitting to SCAN TV. The next four weeks will be crazy, but I think it will be fun to watch & read.

next things I have planned:

Catergories (You can see lists of blog entries group by subject)

vlogs

Links to Seattle Art Grants

Links to Art Blogs / News

Giveaways (Sorry, no dates, just freebies)

Advertising

Whether you’re a new subscriber, just found this on a search, or have been quietly watching us for months, you will enjoy this blog.
