my friend andi told me about the maria bamford series. maybe you already know about it?
when i watched the first episode, i was all
because this is what it's about, people.
to make good art, you have to embrace the mental, but not let it destroy you. a very, very fine line. i've been walking both sides of it for as long as i can remember.
so have a lot of other cool people i know.
while i don't want to make generalizations that are too sweeping or unsubstantiated
(YES I DO.)
it just seems like
to make art,
you have to know how to work the continuum of normal to freaky really hard and well.
does that make a modicum of sense?????
(NEW NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION: LEARN TO WORK THE CRAZY REALLY HARD AND WELL.)
so, here's your saturday goal:
watch an episode of the maria bamford show.
totally attainable goal.
*** i know "crazy" can be an offensive. i've searched for an alternative, but haven't come up with a good one: "mad" is too hipster, "insane" is too crazy, "kooky" too frivolous & perky, & c. what's the word that means: fun, stupid, sad, manic, depressed, staying in bed all day and staying out all night, crashing and soaring all at the same time?
