I am usually filled with almost unending anxiety when other people drive me. exceptions include chris teti, my sister Anthea, elise, and john robison.

oh, is that the whole list?

loling. HEYO! EAT IT KYLE! 

Bummer news: I am stepping away from Mt. Home Arts. This is a toughie. I have gotten to work with Matthew Van Asselt on some project/label/collective/thing for the last 5 years. He is an incredible partner and has pushed me in ways that have been so formative to my ideas about art— and what it means when that’s in your hands. Unfortunately the whole ‘3,000 miles between us’ thing has proved really difficult to manage. I have been less and less active as a partner. It’s no good.

Being in California is hard. It’s harder still when I haven’t found a community that gets me super stoked. While bummed about this these last few days, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what these communities mean to me. If my idea of DIY is geographically specific, is that still true to the ethic? Isn’t the beauty of this scene, this community that it can be transposed and transplanted, moved around and adapted? I think so. Even if it isn’t immediately obvious to me, I know these shapes change and have been changing the whole time. Matt said “I think ‘home’ as a place has to be malleable.” Mt. Home isn’t home, it was an outlet to articulate my artistic ideas for the last few years. It’s a shell. It’s a means of expression. Your good stuff will always follow you, because it’s yours. It gets gooder with friends. To trap that idea within a specific space and time is damaging to the livelihood of this ethic we care about. It’s damaging to your potential as a creator.

I’m scared and excited. I’m scared to lose something I care about and I’m scared to shift my idea of community. I’m excited to be working on GRASSTRONAUT and to be having these conversations and I’m excited for what comes next. Let’s talk. We’ll see. <3

While “Don’t quit your dayjob” is still the favorite thing to say from dads everywhere to their kids starting DIY projects, grassroots arts funding will remain an issue. The cash sources are limited: Door money is awesome, but often is just enough to…

The Ché Café Collective has made their home at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) for the last 34 years. Turns out UCSD is really, really not good at playing House.

Some brief history: Since UCSD students formed the Ché Café Collective in 1980,…

I started a Tumblr for my blog and a website for my *trails off until eaten by the internet*

…but yeah this post is an important update about all the shit happening to the Ché Café in San Diego. if you dig any stories that are happening on Grasstronaut, help share them on Tumblr. Thanks dogs!!!!!!!!!

is this a way out?
I think that is what you’re asking but
I don’t know how to answer
you either see it or you don’t
when I was 19 you were 35 and I was learning about you
my generation is not stoic or serene
“I’m gonna make a lot of money and I’m gonna quit this crazy scene”
you are filled with resistant memories
a conscious revolution of the envied
I came alive in your essence
in the model you built
but it’s all changed, now we fall in love with our former selves
over and over again I have always been able to give you
the benefit of the doubt but it’s forever all about
all about you
well I can not be a part of your delusional pursuits
i can not support you if you just want to be used
i can not help it if your plans are falling through
and i can not love you like I used to
you always did have a knack for this
we are products of our raising, I am sad and you are unfit
we just sit in these old houses while the walls fall down around us
the ceilings crack and crumble
the basements fill with water
and I am stuck among all these people
I don’t know who only talk to me about you

i like my music with a bit of joni references in it.
