Art List

So, after doing Art Conspiracy for five years, I missed the cutoff by a few minutes yesterday and don't get to participate. All the 120 artist spots went in 13 minutes. It didn't help that my company's retarded firewall blocked their Google Spreadsheets application form and I had to run around to find alternative means of Internet access. My company's retarded firewall also blocks as "pornography" for some unknown reason.

I can't say I'm entirely disappointed. All my ArtCon pieces have been really pitiful. Painting in sub-freezing temperatures on plywood isn't really conducive to awesome art. A friend and I are considering starting an Arternative Conspiracy in North Dallas -- get it? Because seriously, driving south of 635 sucks. Especially twice in a weekend.

I do have good memories of consuming as much Miller High Life as possible in a 3-hour period as a means of warming up. And good memories of getting to feel like a part of Dallas for a few brief moments. This year they're moving it to October 23, though. So it shouldn't be so cold. Check out the details here.

I'm sure you hate Art Conspiracy -- as only a WeShotJr reader can. What are your reasons?

HCG Gallery

Seriously, just because you have your art in a high street gallery like HCG doesn't preclude your having some kind of web presence. Don't you have a nephew or something that can make a website for you?
