I'm an artist, I founded a small Williamsburg gallery, I day-job for a deceased collector's estate, and yet art makes me cranky as hell. But it's okay, since most of my friends tell me that I'm at my funniest, my most vividly alive, when I have a bug up my ass about something.
Do you ever see creative types on this site, and you can't help but think, 'Maybe they make really bad work. Maybe that's why they're single'?
That's not me.
Er, I think that's not me?
I like to think of myself as 'mostly not a dick'.
I give good nicknames. Just ask my friends Moonbeam and Torchy. Or my niece, Eyeball. Or my cat, Cobramouth Marshmallow.
DISCLAIMER: I am not 'really good' at construction, compared to actual contractors. I have lots of art-related skills but I'm more impressed that I can build walls and floors, so that's what I'm leading with. Also, bragging about what you do creatively strikes me as douche-y.
I'm also scary good at identifying obscure character actors. If Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon was an olympic sport, I would be writing this from the bottom of a heap of gold medals.
*granted, this paragraph is not in itself particularly funny. You will just have to trust me on this.
