Content and Screen

I would like to personally move towards something like ‘Content-less Fridays’. A full day would be great, especially in conjunction with ‘content-less’ extended periods of time every day.

No screens (except as needed solely for work). No mindless feed-scrolling on the phone. No TV. No streaming. No checking CNN. No TV-on-in-the-background. No Facebook. No nothing.

Also, no radio, Spotify, no consumption of any media whatsoever.

No music, no reading, neither books nor magazines.

You may look at nature, or art (in person only, not online, no instagram, no pictures on your phone).

 

You may interact with yourself, your friends, family, strangers, pets. You may look out the window. You may engage in your day. You may be alone with your thoughts.

 

 

 

Dolby Mapfumo

I always think I’m looking for ‘Screen Kiss’, by Thomas Dolby, which is a fine song in its own right, but really what I’m looking for is this: The Flat Earth, also by Thomas Dolby.

Be advised it’s pretty nerdy post-new-romantic keyboard stuff.

 

In other news, I bet the Lion of Zimbabwe is feeling hopeful right now. Hit this tune to get your body and soul moving.

Portlandiaa

As you know, (my two readers) “I Love Every Little Thing About You” snuck into the background of a scene in “Portlandia”, for a micro-second, (Season 6, Episode 4 – “Weirdo Beach – Oregon’s School For The Deaf”) behind a ruminating janitor who looks suspiciously like Cliff from “Cheers”.

It’s an oldie at this point, but in actuality my all-time favorite. You can own it, and if you live in the Portland Oregon vicinity, I’ll deliver it to you personally for free.

Head to My Art Scout to find my individual page, and while there, drill back to check out all the other great art shown in seasons 5 – 7!

Roll on Portlandia

Because they are all around cool people, Art Scout and the Portlandia Organization are selling the art seen in the last couple seasons of the show, and that includes one of my paintings!

Buy the art! Support the artists! Look for the sale, staring June 9th – the 28th (or something).

More to come.
