I like Ed Sheeran. He is a throwback to when singer songwriters with merit dominated the pop charts. I thought his verse on Endgame was better than Future’s. Both of his albums are great and loaded with classic songs. It is pretty sad how music critics at Pitchfork crap on him. Makes me think there must be some sort of across the pond critic war happening where eggheads take shots at the biggest acts from rival countries.
I hate politics but I love Hippies and their crazy culture. I spent most of the 90s listening to hippie music and reading books about the 70s. One of my favorite performers is Neil Young. He is an incredible song writer with an amazing body of work. He works with an electric guitar like an abstract expressionist works with with a paint brush – he uses it to splatter and drip textured layers of his soul into the air. He laid the ground work for what was happening in rock music in the 90s and is still cranking out amazing music today. Edit: Fixed his nose.
I have been living in and around Macon Georgia for a few years. This is fan art for a great Southern Rock band from Macon. I remember hearing songs like Melissa and Statesboro Blues as a kid and I never knew that they were considered some of the best songs in rock history or that I lived 20 miles from the Statesboro they were singing about. Southern rock permeates the radio in the South and it is background noise for much of what I do. Eat a Peach is one of the all time great rock albums. It took jamming to astronomic heights. I am proud that these guys came from Georgia. I added a moon man to their patented psychedelic motifs. He represents a psychedelic explorer in a Technicolor Psilocybin dream world. The shrooms are sentient creatures that giggle and make fart noises with their mouths and the trees dance back and forth to the electric guitars. And the sun is a giant fuzzy glowy peach that burns your retinas if you look at it for too long.
This is Wilber the Gimp mascot. He is an imaginary animal called a Gimp. He is a friendly hybrid animal who represents the opensource photo manipulation and painting application called Gimp. It is free and awesome. It is every bit as complexed and cool as Photoshop and is basically a toy for making cool pixely stuff for print and the web. You should download it today and start having fun. This is Wilber as a 90s art student with a Nirvana shirt a pallet and two paint brushes. He listens to grunge on his boombox as he paints pictures of dragons and naked girls for his painting 101 class.
