The Practice: Discovery Green Flea By Night

The very first posts of this blog were philosophical in nature.  More recently the entries have focused on nuts and bolts of the day-to-day practice of being a metal artist in the 21st Century.  First of all, there is a subculture of individuals who think process shots are fun. They like looking at videos of art being made as well as gigantic anchor chains being forged in a factory.   It satisfies a certain curiosity.

Discovery Green by Day.  

I have packed my van and I'm all ready to go to Houston for the July 17, 2017 Discovery Green Flea By Night, with a few minutes to spare.  I want to pause for a moment to meditate on a civilizational shift in  consciousness that happened about 500 years ago.  It did not happen at once.   It did not occur for all people at the same time.  It was a shift from a priori reasoning to empirical reasoning.  I'm not going to belabor this point at the moment, but the blog and my work are a reflection of that shift.

The Fab 40 returns to Discovery Green to perform The Beatles’ recording of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band 50 years after its earthshaking premiere launched the Summer of Love. Compucycle will be onsite from 11am-3pm. The first 100 people who bring electronics to recycle with be given access to a VIP seating area. Limit one wristband per person. 

Oops! Here I am philosophizing and its time to leave.
