My Speech/RSD

Tomorrow I have to speak for the February Opening on Art Walk night in Carrboro at the Carrboro Century Center Gallery. 7 PM.
The speech of January 9th can be seen some on Transcendian. This opening speech must be shorter. There will be changes made to the show before the opening is done.

All right I must thank you for being here. I am trouble and demanding of late.
We are going to take the opportunity to change some of the show, and I think I will add “The Last Fucking Duck”. This Duck, is something other artists have made bigger or stronger, and I was supposed to play with the duck. There is SR71 to go up as well. These are toys. They are comforts.
You can’t get the rubber duck anymore because it turns out to be highly toxic, especially when new. It was one poisonous toy. Don’t touch it.
The SR71 is the fastest airplane ever. It is the thing to use, or something like it to bomb people with toys and flowers, since otherwise the good action of Pro Active Civil Demonstration will produce unintended consequences. I used to think Clowns in Balloons would be a good why to spread cheer and international tolerance and understandings, but after my divorce I recognized there is no joking around in hostage situations.
I am an artist now. I’m a professional artist. This is my 4th or 6th show. Originally I was a poet, photographer, and I did drawings dreaming of movies I wanted to make. These became cartoons. I worked with steel and wood in my career as labor, and am used to handling it. I got some great wood from Aventine to work on. It does have the advantage of being able to be hung without being put in a frame. Some pieces would benefit from the right frame, but I am not expert like Mary Earls in that, the thing of framing.
Churchill, Hitler and my hero Grant did some paintings and watercolors. I have striven to use the best materials more and more in my work as an artist. I do desire to be a successful artist beforebecoming the great political leader I am forced by my vision to become.
The questions I set myself to answer: How to prevent the apocalyptic riot may be more important than the vision. The questions came first. The vision helps me affirm the correctness of the answers I have developed for Transcendia, the grand work of conceptual art separate from these paintings, drawings, wall sculptures about balance, and photographs.
Yeah, I’ve got a grand ambition and infrastructure of ideals and precepts of governance, but I just made these works of art to be good company.
You are encouraged to buy my books.

    Poor Buzz & Stories from Warnings for my Daughter

was what I did last when I was going around in my circles. I have impressed myself with it, and characterize it as a jazz composition of a book.
Okay, We will be changing some things. You are encouraged to ask me questions. You can ask me prices.

About Russell Scott Day

I come from sailors and priests. My aim is to prevent apocalyptic riot, better known as nuclear war, when I was growing up. Creating a nation of airports will create the peace enough environment to prevent apocalyptic riot. I had a vision due to a period of boredom and bliss like the Aleph of Borges. That is the story I learned and was made up and happens.
