Klea McKenna - “Slow Burn, 2010 is series of contact prints of landscapes shot on film that has been cut, folded or damaged prior to exposure. Where the film has been altered, it receives light as a three-dimensional object rather than as a flat surface and renders the wound visible.”

How I feel this month.

Drawing by John G. Berry johngberry.com/

One of my favorite possessions - this little framed drawing has been leaning against the back of my drawing desk for years. John is a friend of mine who I’ve not spoken with in a while — we met while I was in grad school at Indiana University. We’d go out for drinks once a week and talk about the music industry, films, the East Coast, and teaching. John’s a great painter. Link above.

derekconnely said: Hi David, I must express my profound appreciation for your art. It speaks to me as I too aspire to create music to which people can relate. Heavy Ghost came to me as an otherworldly obelisk. Your monumental, inspirational album was a catalyst for friend Omar and I to connect, and eventually collaborate musically. Both hugely infuenced by your music, we'd love to cross paths with you - perhaps opening for DM Stith or The Revival Hour? My band is High Waters, and his is Eraserheads. Kindly, Derek

"Otherworldly Obelisk" — a shake in the old thesaurus dice-cup — "Supernatural Shaft." 

Can’t believe the legs that album has had — love hearing that it’s been involved in such good memories for you and your friend. Introduce yourself next time I’m in your town. 

Thanks, Derek.

tumblr did it! I designed the little header, but it’s just a tumblr preset. No big.

Anonymous said: Hi there - I'm listening to your music on Pandora and love it so much I want to buy it! Thanks for your beautiful songs. I'm in NZ though and don't want a CD mailed (I don't have a cd player even) - I've emailed Asthmatic Kitty 3 times to ask if they offer an electronic purchase of your stuff but had no response at all. Amazon have electronic versions but I'm geo-blocked from buying it. Can you please tell me how I can buy your music?!

Geez! Golly and Gosh!! Just read your message. Sorry that it’s taken me so long to get back to you. I thought we had distribution in NZ, but apparently we don’t I’ll do a little investigating and get back to you. Message me again with your email address and I’ll write to you personally. 

I made a poster for Shara. Go see her tonight at Bowery Ballroom in NYC!
