Fuck UMD, fuck UMD, fuck UMD. This doesn't mean I hate Duluth, or that I'm having a shitty time. I am having a shitty time when I visit UMD. So far, I have gotten 3 parking meter tickets (8 dollars each) and have been kicked out of not only the painting department and the photo department but the art department as a whole. Now, granted, I am not a student. But shit! It has really debauched all my plans.
I finally completed my what will end up being probably 60 pages graphic BOOK (entitled, "Life in a Northern Town") and now need to do some major scanning and reorganizing/assembling but there is no such scanner available to me. Of course UMD has the perfect scanner for what I am doing and but not only can I not use it but y prints wouldn't be able to be scanned anyway seeing as it was not photographic material..... Kinkos charges probably somewhere around 40,000 dollars per square foot to use their oversized scanner so I'm stuck. I started the project in August of 2007 and the illustrations were completely as of February this year. Now I'm stuck.
Plus, I have this gigantic canvas sitting in the foyer of the house half painted and stinking of paint thinner. I know it's pissing the roommates off but what am I suppose to do without of a fucking room (Noble move out)? 2. more. days.
Madi comes over everyday and with Austin about 75% of the time. They showed me the drive that is Highway 61. I drove it today by myself for almost 20 miles. I listened to the Queen is Dead on repeat and started to think about stinky things. I didn't like it. Volleybonk was cancelled because Kate got another job at Perkins. Aside from Corey coming to visit today bummed me
out and tomorrow will too if Corey decides not to come.
Started to size up the road trip this summer with Malin. I realized that I have to drive from the Grand Canyon to Florida. There's no way out of it. The trip makes a perfect loop this way but theres 26 hours of pure south in between the orange valley and Lloyd. The last stretch is New Orleans, Southern Mississippi and Mobile to Tallahassee. The mother fucking Bayou. We know noone in Albuquerque, W. Texas, Dallas, Baton Rogue, Mississippi or Mobile so this will be interesting. Fuuuuuuuuuuck.
