Instead I said "Mostly high"...
Anywho, late August through September, I'll be on 95.1FM from weekdays 5am-10am or listen online at 95WIILROCK.com. It's half job, half psychological experiment: I'm gonna see if I can develop a fondness for Nickelback by October.
Here's the audio:

So since we had a few hours to kill anyhow-- I bought some cheapo art supplies at Blick and painted a portrait of him.
Portrait turned out nice for cheapo paint (scroll all the way down to see it).
- Get new copy of the book off the shelf at Borders
- Have David Sedaris sign it
- Return it to the shelf. *
Which was a great idea because...
- David Sedaris won't potentially get offended and scold Adam for being cheap
"To Adam. I'm so happy you date girls. David Sedaris"
Besides worrying that he'd now just made the book unsellable, we could NOT figure out what that inscription meant.
I said maybe he thinks you're so cute that he's glad you aren't gay, because if you were gay he'd want to date you but age and distance and other circumstances would keep you apart.
"I approve this
and I was freakin THRILLED.
Two, he wasn't creeped out that I'd painted him in the first place.
**And actually, we later realized that it actually says appove (a-p-p-o-v-e) not appRove. I don't know if he was just distracted or if he's a bad speller.
Either way, I am now officially a David Sedaris-approved (or appoved) artist; maybe I'll drop out of college.
*And, we couldn't bring ourselves to return the book to the shelf. Adam and I are not shoplifters ordinarily (at least since 7th grade) but decided we couldn't put this personalized, cryptic-'glad you aren't gay'-signed book back on the shelf. Sorry Borders, we'll make it up to you.

I love painting.
I'm wouldn't say I LOVE recycling but I'm an advocate.
I also like to be efficient and mix my interests...SO....
I've started painting dead people.
If you know, please email me at KDylewski@Yahoo.com because right now I have 14 photos of Scarlett Johannson with a santa beard.
**And, in the case that you're a dirty bird who stumbled upon this blog by chance after googling"Scarlett" and "Santa" because you have a strange combination of fetishes: you're welcome.
Anyway, after 45 minutes of trials, I discovered the best place to photograph a painting with NO flash is in the bathroom.
Maybe it has something to do with the white shower curtain.
Anyway, here is Scarlett all finished:

LemonAID/Bloomin' Days is exactly how I would like to spend every Saturday for the rest of the summer-- which is -- painting, drinking beer, and listening to little kids play music who are freakishly talented for their ages; felt like some weirdly serene episode of Maury Povich.
Turns out he isn't black. In fact, he's orangey-green with lots of yellow.
Everyone was incredibly nice. I was only confronted by one woman who didn't like Obama.
That was while I was in the middle of painting the face-highlights so I was in too good a mood to argue.
She schooled me on:
- why the media panders to stupid people (didn't tell her I'm a news reporter)
- why the rich don't really get tax breaks
- why George W. Bush really isn't so bad (YES he is)
She also gave me a full, meaty description of what exactly a partial birth abortion is; it involves a lot of instruments and baby brains. She also talked a lot about slaughter.
Anyway, Obama was auctioned off for $200 (to benefit Lemon Street Gallery) and now has a home with a nice woman from Waukegan. I miss him a little but I know he has a good home.
and people from the art community:
Lemon Street Gallery

I'll be one of 40 artists in 2008 Lemon Street Gallery LemonAID Charity Fundraiser. It's this Saturday, June 7th across from the Bloomin' Days Festival in downtown Kenosha. All I know is I'll have 8 hours to paint something and then it will be auctioned off. I expect that by noon I'll be in the greatest mood ever, but by 5pm I'll have paint on my face and be mumbling to myself like a crazy person.
** This event has nothing to do with Aids, proceeds benefit the gallery.
