dreamin in Eugene !

oh hay yay ! HAPPY DAY ! lol ! HAPPY BiRTHDAY of COURSE ! ... well ... stuck in a well ... for the internets #HAPPYDAiLYBiRTHDAY ! its your DREAM! #GETLUiCiD and ask yourself ... what would YOU do ?

... well i asked myself ... and on any given birthday i might ... do this !

peep this music video i just dropped ... peep it quick before it hits the ground and shatters !



but that was then ... and this is now ... or a more recent then ... 

the Eugene Dream !:

let start it with the first experienced and then dance chronologically ... right ... hahha SiKE ! ima plop them here in any old way i see fit ... its more bout the story ya kno ... shall we?


^^^
first things first ... (the time machine that has taken me where only dreams go to die) !
ANNA BANANA ! 
finally we meet again ...


^^^
however ... she had a leaky blood line ...



^^^
so i yanked that sucker right out ...


^^^
but now what do i do?
eehh....beats me ...


^^^
now its time to find the sublime !
and feel the shivers up and down my spine !
its river time !
thats right ... there was a river that was only four minutes away from where i was staying !
YAY! talk about the best birthday ever !



^^^
time to explore !
i found a local gentleman's secret spot ... as i was just chillen in meditation and he found me ... seemed like a nice gent ... with some problems ... i always end up being the ears for people ...
complete strangers usually feel compelled to tell me their darkest troubles or current problems or just plan ol joyous life story ... idk ... i guess thats just built into my aura ... a wizard listener ... learning from other peoples experiences so i dont have to experience certain ones ...


^^^
spread out my roots and grow !


^^^
so ... lol ... u see this lil meat man right here ^
as i left my perch and began to continue my exploration this gentleman and i sync up in stride for a moment ... he then shouts a "yo!" in my general direction ... "YYYYAS?" i say ... 
"are you collecting cans?" he asks ...
i smiled real big gave a chuckle and politely told him "no"
to which he responded that there was quite the "cache" over "here"
hahaha i laughed with him ... although i think he was laughing at me ... but i couldnt help but think that ... well if i was collecting cans ... (and knowing myself ... i could have very well been collecting cans lol ... whether for money or for a recycled resource project) ... than i would have been very grateful ... so wether he was attempting to just suggest that i looked homeless or he was actually looking out ... THANK YOU STRANGE MAN !


lol pennies in a well ... back to the grind ... 


^^^
that birthday tattoo grind !



^^^
fresh ink for my man Kyle ! who was nice enough to store my baby Anna Banana !


^^^
peep them details ... and if u want to see more of my work ... click this ... Prison iNK fo life !


next on the list of Eugene experiences ...




OPEN MiC NiGHTS and Musical Thangs!



i rocked two open mics both of which were received well by the majority of the audience except for ONE person at each place ... at the first open mic a gentleman claimed that i was shoving a flyer down his throat and that i was ignorant to the fact that toner contains plastic ... when i was only tryin to start a conversation and continue it later on the interwebs ... he was mostly on a mission to be bully and make me feel bad and hypocritical ... so let it be known ... even when your doing what you can to help out on this silly little temporary planet there will always be HATERS claiming that they're doing it better than you and they WiLL try to convince you that you aint shit ... for what reason? idk probably personal insecurites ... but if this gentleman taught me ONE things its how to use my legs in the future ... i NO LONGER HAVE TiME FOR MEAN PEOPLE ! ... oh well pennies in a well ... 

at the second place the person opposed to my shenanigans happened to be the owner or atleast the authority of the establishment ... he shut down my act in the middle of the second song and i just barely finished that track through ... lol ... he said he liked my music but that he felt other people were getting uncomfortable and that made him uncomfortable ... i think its important for humans to consider the term "projection" as it is real ... ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK YOUR PERCEPTiON ... oh well ... so as a heads up ... if your an experimental performance artist and your doing something a bit different ... 
... be careful "the Cannery" might not be the open mic for you lol ...  


^^^
heres what he looked like lol ... 


^^^
i dint kno they sold balloons in the bathroom off bars in Eugene ... damn ... ill never be unprepared again ... 


 ^^^
yo and then ... and then ... ænd THEN ! 
 i got to see ATMOSPHERE live in concert for the first time ! soooooooo gooooooood!
bought a CD from deM atlaS soooooo talented ... the new wave is coming yo ! positivity is enroute !




EUGENE SATURDAY MARKET !!!!





^^^
was passing out flyers for my new album on the street and this gentleman asked me if i wanted to hear some of his poetry ... of course i said yes !

^^^
this is "lil five points" poetry at its finest ! swell dude ! 


^^^
THiS ... is interesting to think about ... a "free speech zone"
hmm ... at first i celebrated in my head ... but then i said ... y are we only aloud to use free speech at a certain place ... idk ... food for thought ... an discussion is welcome ...



^^^
either way ... look at this happening place for free speech !


^^^
and the art that rotates within !


^^^
this happens to be a the powerful visionary art of Sam Gorrin ... check out his art HERE



^^^
and speaking of art ... 
this gentle man happened to be a crystal/mineral wizard by the name of Tree Fern Gully ...




^^^
and his side kick Archie the Conure realy wanted to make sure Tree was hearing things correctly ... 
lol ... thats right family 40,000 gas masks ... 






gas mask?



^^^
and what a beautiful trade ! gas mask for a Gorgeous peace of fossilized Ammonite .... 
THANKS TREE !


^^^
seriously what a perfect day ! so many awesome beautiful people speaking their minds and contributing to the beautiful madness of it all ...


^^^
still on the gas mask grind yall ... FOR THE KiDS !


^^^
and look what else gas masks can turn into ! BOOTS ... before i even left philly i kept thinking about how i REALLY needed boots for my adventures in the sometimes sunny sunny brae / arcata ! and boom ! ... not only did the boots find me ! but they were being offered by a gentle man who runs in familiar family circles ... David Divtech : talented artist, kind human being, and wizard of noise check out Divtech's Music ! rolling with the Realicide Yougth Records on their tour ... which you can follow HERE ...



^^^
speaking of the road ... ive already hit dat shit ! lol
face first pavement enslavement ... lets go ! dinosaur fuel in the tank !





^^^
i wonder what wacky things we will see ... hahaha like Paul Bunyan and his baby blue ox Babe
