So this happened last week.
Beauty is Embarrassing, turns out I have been a fan since I was little, watching Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Beakman's World, and many others. He came to speak about his life and his film and it was amazing. One of the things that really struck me was his absolute love of art and his passion for getting people to do art, and do what they love. Specifically, he said
"The world is dying for stuff made of love, and that's what artists are for."
This applies to everyone in my opinion, because the world would be a much better place if everyone had the courage to just do what they love.
And as a side note, I this person really epitomizes that sentiment.
So that's the latest and best update from my little corner of the world. More to come eventually? We'll try, but I can't promise it will be quick. So go, as Amanda's husband would say, "Make good art."
