They’re driving through the south to set a World Record for most performances performed in 24 hours! They’re shooting for 8 concerts in 8 cities. 5 cities in Mississippi. Hope they’re not too tired by the time they reach us….It’ll all be streaming live here. Leave it to the Flaming Lips to try something this crazy.
I hadn’t mentioned this on tumblr, but I’m going to grad school! I’m headed to Athens, Georgia this fall to study at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at The University of Georgia. I couldn’t be more excited. Honestly, I didn’t think I was gonna get in! So I’m more than thrilled to be a candidate.
I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for years. After waiting for the right time - the time is now. Hopefully the post-undergrad years have allowed me to mature and hone my skills. I’m glad I didn’t rush into it.
UGA has an amazing program and is one of the best in the southeast. I’d be one of around 100 grad students in many different areas. I’ll be studying Drawing and Painting in a brand new 40 million dollar building complete with state-of-the-art facilities. Let’s hope I can still paint a few toy paintings, but who knows what I’ll be painting! I hope at least paintings with pop culture references. Just wanted to let all y’all know… - Allan
