How about its due.

What these exercises are to get you to realize is Inspiration doesn't just happen, its created.  There is nothing magical about inspiration, you have to engage with the world for it to happen.  

Exercise 2:

Friday Sept 17 - I was DJing at the After Sunset concert at LMU.  Early on, there weren't a ton of people there, so I wasn't trying to play as intense of a set as I normally would.  This also gave me more time to look around and notice what was going on with this exercise in mind.  The thing I thought was the most funny was the oxygen bar in the back right corner.  It's not like I haven't heard of one before, but actually seeing people... how do you say it... taking oxygen... is hilarious.  First off, it looked like a group of 25 people all hooked up to IVs in the hospital since the way it's breathed in is through nasal tubes.  Second, everyone is just standing there breathing and looking around all bewildered like they're expecting some crazy high to hit them.  I decided to try it for a bit later on just to see what the hype was all about.  Wow, what a joke.  

Saturday Sept 18 - Once again, I was DJing, but this time it was at a pool party on the rooftop of the Standard Downtown.  This was the last pool party of the summer for the company that put it on for the past couple months, and the day before the party, they decided to add a special guest headliner.  It was this girl named Chanel who is the secretary on Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory (show on MTV).  Now, I'm not going to go on and complain about how ridiculous it was that a blonde diva from Hollywood got to headline a show because she thinks she wants to be the next Weezy, but what I did have a wild time observing was the type of crowd that came to the party because her name was on the bill.  I love people watching, and the pool parties (or any club in downtown or Hollywood) has the best assortment of hipsters and scenesters ever.  My favorite on this particular day, though, was a black dude wearing all blank white clothes, some throwback hi-top Nike boots, sunglasses from 2040, and a chain connected to a toy plane about the size of a grapefruit hanging off his neck.  Whaaaat?  I wish I would have asked him why he was wearing a plane, but I don't even know if he would have had an answer for that.  Just another day in the Hollywood life. Yikes.

Exploration 4 & 5:

On my walk from my car to my work-study job on campus today, I collected some objects that I passed by.  There weren't very many unnatural things around which made me realize how friggin well kept LMU's campus is.  I found some listing tear-out tabs, an awesome LA Weekly cover featuring JD Samson of Le Tigre on her new band MEN (see my inspiration forum).  And yes, I said her. The most interesting part of my exploration, however was that out of all the artifical objects that I found on my way that were actually out of place (i.e. litter), three were candy wrappers.  One was a Rice Krispy Treat, one was a Peanut M&M's bag, and the last one was a Milano cookie wrapper.  So in the spirit of the coincidence, I have decided to start a candy wrapper collection for Exercise 5.

Exercise 6:

Picture coming soon.

I finally just brought down my favorite toy collection from when I was a little kid.  My mom never threw them out, and I'm really glad she didn't because ever since I've added them to my room down here at school it's made me feel a little more at home.  The toys I'm referring to are these action figures that I used to collect called "Gundams" from this Japanese Anime cartoon that I always used to love called "Gundam Wing".  Everyone always says, "I like your transformers" when they see them.  I appreciate the compliments, but transformers were boy-scouts compared to these puppies.  I'm a nerd.  I know.

PS - I forgot to mention that I still have all my old Pokemon cards.  Every one except for Alakazam.  Anyone wanna trade? haha.

So for exploration #7, I did something a bit different.  I filled out a 4 x 6 grid of rectangles on illustrator, and then had my girlfriend sit down and randomly fill each one with a different color that she liked.  I then came back to it and wrote the first thing that each one made me think about.

I picked a robot toy that I found at my job.  He sits next to a Santa stuffed animal, a snowman stuffed animal, and a toy skull... weird.  He looks like a toy out of a happy meal from some fast food resturaunt.  I like it, but the whole brain in a robotic body thing isn't as cool as that bad guy from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...

Or Evil Con Carne...

But I still like him.

The toy's fun.  The orange button on the front pumps air into the helmet so his head spins around.  I wonder how he grew eyes and a mouth on his brain in the first place...  The water's only filled halfway up the helmet now.  I wonder if it was always like that, or its just so old that half of the water somehow evaporated.  He has a whole bunch of tubes on the back of his helmet that connect to a backpack on his body.  There are screws on the back of his shoulders.  I could probably take him apart if I unscrewed them.  Looks like he has a voicebox above his orange button.  His suit is bolted right down the middle of his pelvic area, cuz he obviously doesn't need to go to the bathroom anymore.  The bottom soles of his feet are red.  Looks like they may have been painted by someone.  Under his right foot it says "MFG For McD Corp.  China TCB Chine".  And under his left foot it says, "Copyright 2003 Toy Quest".  I guess it was a McDonalds Happy Meal toy made in China.  Surprise surprise.

I am going to take the next five minutes to write nonstop about all the random thoughts that are going through my head.  Honestly, this was the best way that I thought I could go about completing this exercise.  I have way too many thoughts throughout the day to be able to document all of those so something like this works alot better.  I've done this kind of an exercise before and I love doing it because it's weird to just write of a flow of consciousness.  My girlfriend is watching Family Guy, but she just changed it to CSI.  I think it's hilarious how it seems like every time I see part of a CSI episode, it's always a scene where they find some fingerprints on various objects.  This time it was a golf club.  Where is my mind?  I'm completely wiped from the week.  I'm shooting my thesis film on Friday, so that's taking up alot of space in my thoughts right now.  It's my birthday on Thursday.  22.  Not as cool as 21.  It's like the first birthday that doesn't really matter.  I got so many good songs today.  Like 20.  My favorite one that I downloaded was from this artist that I haven't even heard of before.  Searched the name on Google too and couldn't even find him/her/them?  There's this commercial on TV right now about this robot that says different things to you based on what cards you choose to slide into his stomach.  Its for younger kids, but they have this kid that looks like he's definitely over 13 in it.  That doesn't seem right.

I really really liked this artist's style, so I decided that I wanted to uncover his "mystery".  What do these pieces mean?  What is the purpose of his art?

What I found out was that it was actually a team of five guys that made these pieces.  They go by Team Macho, and this is what they have to say about themselves:

"Team Macho is a collaborative illustration and fine art effort composed of Lauchie Reid, Chris Buchan, Nicholas Aoki, Jacob Whibley, and Stephen Appleby-Barr.  They currently occupy a large studio in Toronto, Canada where their joint efforts are divided equally between illustrating for very fine clients and preparing gross quantities of highly imaginative artwork for galleries in Canada and abroad."

So. Cool.

After my findings, I decided that I was going to try and do the same type of thing.  I am going to start an art piece, and then hand it off to my friends who are also artists to eventually come up with a collaborative piece that contains ideas from a number of different creative minds... so stay tuned.  I'll post it up on the inspiration forum once it's done.

Tonight I made one of my favs: Rice-a-Roni

The flavor was Fried Rice, and I decided to go out on a limb because of this exploration.  I added some chicken and egg into the mix.  First I poured the rice in with two tablespoons of butter.  I sauteed until the rice was brown.  At the same time, I defrosted a frozen chicken breast.  When the rice was nice and golden, I added 2 cups of water and the special seasoning.  I then took the defrosted chicken and cut it into thin, bite-size pieces.  I poured the chicken into the mix as well, and let it all get to boiling.  Once it hit a boil, I covered the pot and turned the heat to low to let the rice soak up the water.  I got two eggs and mixed them up until they were blended pretty evenly.  After about 15 minutes, I uncovered the pot, poured the eggs over the mix, and mixed it all up.  I cooked it a little longer on medium heat to let the eggs settle in, and then it was done.  I shared it with my roommate and we ate it all before I even read this exploration.  Hence, the lack of picture.

For this exercise on altering my experience, I decided to keep my mouth open as long as possible.  Its really weird, don't know how I thought of it, but it's made me realize a bunch of things.  First, we produce a ton of saliva, and when mouth is dry it produces even faster.  I've been having to swallow like every 30 seconds now since I started this.  Second, our mouth dries up uber fast when we keep it open.  Go figure.  My lips were the first to dry up, then my cheeks, now my tongues getting there, but I'm gonna stop before this gets uncomfortable.  So I guess the last discovery is that I can do it successfully for about 7 minutes.  Lame.

Kyle's room reminds me of a place where work and play collide into one sufficient space. Located in the center of his room a Portuguese flag hangs from the ceiling over the bottom of the bed. Posters of various different arts collide to provide a fine eye candy if you are to sit in the room for a long enough time to gander at them. From monopoly themed shoes to vintage spiderman posters show the amount of influence that go into his daily life. A large closet on one side of the room seems to hold anything from soccer balls to dj equipment and his whole clothing collection. There also is a desk that has his computer, printer, and studio reference monitors where i assume he spends the majority of his time at home. Overall a very cozy vibe that has been instilled into this not so fancy apartment.

Yesterday morning, I woke up to 103.5 playing Christmas music.  The first thing I heard as I awoke, was the radio DJ talking about when Bing Crosby and David Bowie got together to sing The Little Drummer Boy / Peace on Earth collab back in the day.  I was really tired so it took me awhile to get up.  I put on my gym clothes because I had told myself the day before that I would go to the gym that day.  I got to work at TV Engineering a little bit after 9, so I was late, but my boss wasn't even there yet so I was safe.  My card to open it didn't work, so I had to wait until another guy could let me in.  At work I did a huge post on Shifty about the event that I DJ every tuesday night, along with some new music that I put up for download.  I made sure to post it all over social media platforms, and by the time I was done with all of that, it was 1pm and time for me to go.  I went to the lair and bought a chicken salandwich, an odwalla, and some gummiworms.  I had acting class after that, at 2, and didn't do anything the entire class because my scene partner was already gone for thanksgiving break.  After class, I went home because I was too lazy to go straight to the gym.  I worked on my new DJ mix for a bit, and then forced myself to get back to school and do my thing.  I went back, went to the gym, and then hit the editing room in the film school to start work on my new music video that I just shot.  I edited that for 5 or so hours, and then went over to my friend, Mo's house, because she was having a pre-break party.  I hung out there with all my friends for a bit, then drove some peeps home, late night, then went home myself.  I brushed my teeth, and passed out.

So I traced the outlines of some stains I found around the apartment and then cut them out on different colored pieces of paper, and arranged them in a collage, like the exercise said... made a cool face I guess.

The other day I went to Costco to get food with a buddy.  When we were waiting in line to order, I decided that I was going to talk to the person in a New York accent and see what happened.  When it came my turn, I put on my best accent and said "Can I get a dog?".  The cashier looked at me all taken aback, and said "I'm sorry?".  I said, "A dog".  The lady said, "OH a dog!", and went to go get it.  Now I know how it feels to be from the Eastcoast and misunderstood.
