this is liz mcgrath. she is my favorite artist. I like her dark unique style. Its seems to me what Tim Burton would do if he was a homeless punk girl in LA. You should watch this because it is awesome. I've been a fan of Liz's for a couple of years now. I really enjoy her limited edition low priced items. For a while she was selling one of a kind meat cleavers for like $20 and they came in really cool custom designed boxes. If you have time you check out her website. .

In other news, I tried something I've never done today. I found a listing on for an audition for a student film. So I said fuck it and went for it. I'm pretty sure my audition sucked, but I'm really glad I did it. There is so many things that I've always wanted to try, but never did. Now that I'm out of school though, I've just had this urge to try things that scare me, things that I wouldn't normally do. So I did it. I don't know if I got the part and I really don't care. The fact that I tried is enough for me.
I think the fact that people are affraid to try new things is the reason that our society hasn't progressed beyond the capitalist television culture we've built. Why try when you can watch Anthony Bourdain do it? We, as a society, are just giving up. I know I've given up many times. It's time that we just say "fuck it!"

Fuck it.

I'm gonna try more. You should to. I'm going to try to meditate even though I think it is hippie bullshit. I'm going to poop in the toilet sitting the wrong way. I'm going to walk around the block walking backwards. I'm going to tell my Dad that I think he was a terrible Dad. I'm going to tell a homeless person that I just don't want to give them money. I'm going to cry in front of someone. I'm going to write something really meaningful on a bathroom wall. I'm going to write the IRS and ask them if its cool that I don't pay taxes anymore. I'm gonna try.
