thank you!

I've been considering painting a series of musicians in this style.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  31 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: "The Drummer" (new painting)

Oh yes, completely. Kandinsky is easily my favorite artist.

Haha, I figured you'd like that bit!

Happy to create with you again

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  32 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: "The Drummer" (new painting)

Thank you!

It's pleasant to hear that a painting is so well composed so as to be mistaken for digital work.

very happy to keep this alive

(1st track with bass, 2nd isolated bass)

lately I've been wildly into the intersection of Indian classical music and Western classical

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  170 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hi Hubski! What are some of your private rituals?

I've noticed that the quality of my paintings significantly deteriorate when I'm drinking.

I've also noticed that I was abusing marijuana when painting in that I was using it to keep myself awake much later than my body wanted to be awake.

On August 30th I committed myself to one year without the devil's lettuce. I'll let you know how that goes.

Before taking psychedelics, I place my hands over the substance and send forth as much loving energy as I can muster. When the feeling is right, then I ingest.

Recently I've started adding another aspect of the ritual. After ingesting, I sit in meditation until I feel the substance taking effect in my body. It's a very nice way of becoming aware of how my perception becomes altered.

Much love! This one is on a while other level.

I live in the Kansas district mentioned where funding for advertisement has been pulled from the Republican candidate. I'm okay with this.

Wooooooooooooooweeeeeee

elizabeth and JackTheBandit, I just learned I've got a few gigs:

Wednesday, evening, Lady Sass Ship art car

Thursday, 11pm, Center Camp

Friday, 8pm, Marching Band March Off

I'd love to see you at any of these :)

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  562 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

will do, thanks for the heads up!

I'm so excited to see you at the Burn! I have...items...to share if you'd like :)

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  562 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

Oh wow I wasn't aware of regional burns outside of MidBurn and Afrikaburn. But now that I think of it, obviously there are burns around the world.

Found it!

I wonder what the Brazil burn is like...

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  562 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

The Hubski Regional. We should hold it on the moon. Or one of Jupiter's moon. Definitely a moon though.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  562 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

haha I hear that, no mongolian yurt in my pocession in the near future

My basement is already fairly pimped out, friends have painted murals on the walls. We've hosted loads of concerts there already.

Are the concerts only beta in one city?

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  563 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

I wonder how similar the AirBnB concerts are to what HomeDitty is doing. I'm not a fan, because a host doesn't receive any payment from hosting. But it's certainly interesting.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  563 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

I'll look into the volunteer opportunities, thanks for the heads up :)

Ah, gotcha, wasn't sure if it'd just be you. The bathrooms are for everyone, there are just some that aren't advertised with the blue lights. That does result in them being the cleanest. Folks put locks on them, which I don't agree with. I'll give you the combination when I know it ;)

Yeah I think I'll be hanging at the POC camp a bit this year with JackTheBandit. If they get their structure built I forsee a fiesta happening.

I think thenewgreen and mk would be happy to know there will be a Hubski Burning Man meetup

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  563 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

I'd like to go to midburn one year.

How did you already sign up for Artica shifts?

Do you have any interest in camping with us at 315 and Center Camp? If so I could see about getting you in. We have unadvertised bathrooms, electricity, and quiet hours. Our camp gives preference to musicians, if you have anything you could contribute. Otherwise I could put in a good word. My tent is so large I've been seeking a companion.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  563 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

My first two years it cost me about 1100. That includes the ticket, gear, and cost of gas to get there and back from Kansas City.

I have a tab going for this year, I'll post again after it's all said and done.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  563 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

Yes definitely! I meet tons of people from Israel at the burns.

Where is Borderland?

On the BM website, before you're able to do anything else, a few questions/prompts pop up. One is to remind people to be present in the moment and not connect with the default world via phone is possible.

BLOB_CASTLE  ·  563 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Burning Man 2018: Who's Going?

There is. I learned that's been around for about 5 years.

However, I put my phone on airplane mode the whole week.

I do preload music charts on my phone for the jams at the jazz cafe, but aside from that I don't use my phone. I bring a watch for time and disposable cameras for photos.
