I'm a broke homeless starving artist. I've lost my car, my apartment, my job. I’ve been clean and sober for over 20 years, so it’s not a drug or alcohol problem that got me here. This economy just got the better of me. I’m from Hollywood, CA, the movie business crash made me bankrupt and was hoping to get a job here quickly, but it's been a slow process. and decided to move to Houston because they say the economy is good here, but it's not that great. California was supposed to pay me and a million others unemployment, but they're bankrupt and turned us all down. There’s a big class action suit lawsuit forming against the state.
Please help me out. Please Paypal me even just a dollar at "".
I'm just too proud and embarrassed to beg on the street. I spent two nights on the streets of Houston The first night I was near a drive by shooting at a Starbucks and last night I slept in a Wal-Mart parking lot and had to chase away a potential mugger. I never ever felt like a loser in life until last night.
I'm a really smart guy, high IQ, I'm an accountant/computer tech/commercial airplane pilot/script writer/music producer. Also I could use some work in any of the mentioned areas or manual labor. I'm a power lifter and quite capable of doing manual labor.

Good Signs for Obtuse Artists

The Contemporary Art Museum's curator Valerie Oliver just handed out the Sondheim Artscape Prize in Baltimore over the weekend and the 25 grand prize went to sweet collective Baltimore Development Cooperative! BDC built a geodesic dome on the front porch of the Baltimore Museum of Art and made a crap-ass cardboard crane covered in messy cityscapes. They beat out Jessie Lehson, who built an adobe wall in the grass and exhibited sand paintings as well as Leslie Furlong, Ryan Hackett, Molly Springfield and Karen Yasinsky. BDC member Scott Berzofsky sez: "I think the jurors were attracted to the socially engaged nature of our work," which is a good sign for the continued upward trajectory of collaborative and collective artwork like the bourgeois-skewering "Yacht Shop" at the CAMH by Benji Mason and Zach Moser, Dan Havel and Dean Ruck's architecture-destroying "Give and Take" in the same show, Thriller-mocking Performance Art Lab and crowd-sourcers everywhere. In the same spirit I'm lifting these pics despite the BMA's claim to copyright, they can come down here and take 'em back if they wanna :)
