Totally, completely & utterly disgusting!

Last night I headed to the Logan Arthouse & Cinema to watch a friend and his band play. I kinda get nervous going to these kinds of things, they just aren't my thang ... I feel uncomfortable and awkward, like I suddenly don't know how to act. The only other place I feel like this is at dances. But this is all besides the point.

While there, I couldn't help but notice an art exhibit. And by "couldn't help but notice" I really mean it ... because they wouldn't let us into the theatre just yet and there was literally nothing else to look at. :)

So, essentially, if I was choosing to have my eyes open, I was being forced to look at this exhibit ...

I really didn't think much of it until it was brought to my attention the reasoning behind the name of the exhibit, "Blood Works" and how most of the paintings were done in hues of reds and browns.

Do you smell what I am stepping in? Because, that still meant nothing to me. It had to be point blankly stated, "He painted this exhibit with his blood."

Yes. His freakin' blood.

Are you as totally, completely and utterly disgusted by this as I am?

Here are a couple more of the paintings I saw ...


Sometimes, creativity turns into complete creepiness and being that "creative" is a curse, no? It's in moments like these that I don't mind my creative juices don't flow as fluidly as some. Because my blood will remain off canvases and in my body. And I ... I am okay with that. And I hope you are too.

P.s. I am currently surviving a massive blizzard. And if you live in Utah you know how much hype has been made over this storm, which you also know that for a snow storm to make news in Utah it must be a BIG DEAL {like me}. Truth be told, it seems like a normal snow storm in Utah to me, so I am not so much impressed. Buuuut, then again ... I did get out of work early to "prepare" for the beastly weather, so I am not complaining. :)

That is nasty. I don't know why anyone would ever think that was a good idea. Ever.

Enjoy the snow. :) We're not getting much snow up this way, just lots and lots of cold.

Gross. That gives me the chills just thinking about it.
And this crazy hype about the weather...you would think it was the second coming. Everyone was at the store buying flashlights and wood. Crazy.
Thank you for the threatening motivation to update my blog.

That was disgusting! I can't believe that they are actually having a showing with it!

We got sent home too and didn't even get a portion of the snowstorm you guys got. That is definitely disgusting.

Yeah, I saw those painting there too, but didn't make the connection. That's weird, but interesting. But weird and gross. The paintings are good though, so there's that...
