Oh my my my. I am such a Gen X’er today. When I am by myself quietly working on art I take a secret jouney back. ABC helps me with this. They have been putting up a new episode of My So Called Life online each week and I look forward to watching each new slice of time. I can’t say my life was exactly like Angela’s, but man, it’s eery sometimes. I had a Jordan Catalano in my life and sometimes, whew, it’s like reading my diary. The clothes, the music, the hairdo’s, the awkwardness. I love this show. I did when it came out and I still do. I guess it’ll go on a wishlist sometime.
How many other X’ers can relate to this. How many of you had a Jordan Catalano? How many of you can guess who mine is? No don’t answer that, seriously. I love John Hughes films but I was a little kid when those teen-agers were around. MSCL is my memory.
I guess I’ve been thinking alot about “memory” and “the familiar” as I work toward a new body of artwork. Fuel for the fire,eh?
