Light-Fast-Low
Or: Trying Hard to Stay Rad and Find My Self

On August 30th, after a year of being in NYC, I made the call. Keano, the pervasively-subway-advertised-psychic-medium, answered. I told Keano that I wanted to make some paintings and proceeded to ask my free question:

AF: ..so, yeah, what should I paint?

K: I’m sensing from your voice and from your energy that you should use earthtones. Do you know
what those are?

AF: Yes. I‘m familiar

K: You need to use earthtones- you have to release your spirit. Earthtones will free your spirit!

AF: Oh- okay- wow- hmmm well, I'd like that- to free my spirit, I mean. Can you tell me more- like what to paint? Is there an image or something?

K: I’m very busy and must go- but I told you already, earthtones will free your spirit. Start with earthtones.

I’m trying here, but quite obviously have yet to free this damn spirit of mine. Several weeks after the call I purchased a STAY RAD/ vaporwave velcro patch from Amazon.com’s ‘Recommendations for You’ section. I can only assume that this suggestion, based on my previous search and purchase history, is an algorithmically perfect reflection of my self.
