My Thoughts Exactly, Dear Anna

To paraphrase one of my favorite comedians, Eddie Izzard... good evening ladies and jelly spoons! And no, that's not meant to replace the usual "My fellow prisoners..." intro, but I felt it appropriate to this here blog post for I came across a video that was so good that I thought it best to virtually dress up for this special occasion. I came across this YouTube channel via Twitter when I followed the awesome web personality that is Anna Creoddity. She is an artists' artist and I believe that this video below sums up pretty much everything I personally despise about the art world and with it, the foolish struggle that modern day artists have to endure needlessly, especially when tools like social media are right at our disposal in this day and age. Basically put... I believe she very effectively managed to put into words just about the same level of frustration I was trying to convey in my previous Art Schmart post (and if you haven't read that one yet, please do so!).

So Anna, I just want to say... thank you for filming this and sharing it.  On behalf of all fellow artists out there who certainly demand a great deal of respect for what they do, I really think this video struck a chord (even if I'm still a bit out of tune).  But kudos to you either way, and let this here humble blog mention be a testament to your genius in the face of creative adversity!  Whatever that means!  For I was just trying (maybe a little too hard) to sound profound with a slight touch of poeticism on the side!  And yes, I know there's no such word as poeticism since the auto correction feature (i.e. red underline) on Blogger told me so!  But it sounds like a near word, so why not assimilate it into the modern day lexicon?  Anyways... enough of my yacking, please watch the video below!

This has been the infamous P.S. Elliott (AKA: Dr. Gonzo XXVII) reporting for the disassociated press, that is... The Gnoyze Guitar Mods & More Web Blog.
