Hey I wanted to let people know that I have started my own blog. I am sick of the MSN groups and I wanted something that feels fresh and new. I knew I was going to be doing this for a few weeks now. Funny thing was, I was going to post 4 final band pics here and then let people know. I stirred up some decent drama so it may seem like I reaction to that or some sort of retaliation to stuff going on here of late. It's not.

I have been getting into so much different visual media and artwork lately that to force a 'group shared' blog to be subjected to it. I personally felt was unfair. To me and to them. I will still post here and the cool thing is I can really go more into detail with stuff, post more art and photography, and the mixed media work I have been doing over there...and not feel like I am pulling things here in some sort of odd direction.

It's basically a replacement for my MSN group in reality, and will tie in with (not online yet)

Here's the link: artshake

I'll definitely check out your blog, I always liked your posts here.
A friend of mine once went to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Mars Volta was the pre-show band. He didn't like them, but the pieces you did of the Mars Volta are really good. (It might be a silly point, but it's all I got today ;))
You know, every time you said you couldn't post on the blog anymore, the updates on the Wildstorm blog were far and between. But you always posted sooner than expected about great visual subjects. And I liked every single one of them.

Thank you Rich, good luck with your own blog.

Like your stuff
Keep us in the know regarding Stormbringer and Wetworks.

You stated,"I stirred up some decent drama so it may seem like I reaction to that or some sort of retaliation to stuff going on here of late. It's not."

-Don't understand what you mean, but keep things simple and let your talent show. Best of luck with things.

yeah the MV live can be a hit and miss affair.


I've seen them 3 times live. Once was great(actually 2 times), and one time wasn't bad but it was opening for another band and that's not the best place for them to shine.

I saw some video footage of them live and it was really awful. The were running around like maniacs but the music and vocals were a mess.


batgirls-itch maybe I phrased it wrong..I have wanted a little spot of my own for a while now. So this blog 'artshake' is just going to be a more in-depth and personal version of me here.

Like I mentioned I am not stopping posting here.

I am just going to be more in depth and maybe out of the box on my own blog.

I wrote a little reply over there where I broke down some of my goals and reasons for creating the place.
