  • explore visual artistic spaces in textual spaces
  • highlight excellent San Antonio music and art (also bands and artists)
  • discuss songs, albums and bands (not specifically from San Antonio) in an imaginative manner
  • provide a space to publish my poetry and the poetry/writing of others
  • provide a space to publish my visual art and the visual art of others
  • link others to badass articles/media/art on other sites that I support/patronize
  • discuss, with the intent to create meaningful dialogue, select philosophical/theoretical/cultural topics and observations
  • discuss, with the intent to create meaningful dialogue, educational theory and practices
  • to, generally, be another creative and critical voice that (hopefully) makes is its own argument for its necessity
Considered broadly and un-stictly speaking... the above items explain the reason for this blog's existence. It should be made clear, however, that some of those things are gonna happen more than others and that at least a few of them depend on the participation/love/patience of you the reader (assuming you exist). I write this blog (damn... I hope it's only coincidence that I first typed 'bog' instead of blog) in the hopes that people, including myself, will eventually benefit from its existence and upkeep. To all the blogs/sites that I have listed as my 'Inspirations'... you truly are. It is ya'll who have shown me how (like the best types of mossy and breathingly atmospheric electronic music) the online universe can be authentic, organic, truly creative and human in its imperfect graces. I will contribute what I can to what I see as an occurring and enlarging dialogue towards a new kinda transcendentalist mindset in the American artistic and intellectual community. In other words... I’ll be doing my best to say whatever I want to say.

I should mention... I will be using graphics/images, culled from various places on the web, as starting points and/or visual symbols (banners?) for thoughts/creations/etc. If you see something that you created and do not want exhibited in this particular virtual room of the net-mansion... let me know and it will be immediately removed. On that note, if you feel called to contribute ANYTHING- insights and objections in the form of e-mails and comments, artwork in any post-able medium, original writing, questions, money, booze, music that really moves... anything at all...

get at me.
