Some people get upset when friends go off on sidebars on their posts. They want everything on the post to be about them. I guess that’s fine for some people. Me, I don’t really care if my friends—or even members of the general public go off on little sidebars. I’ve always been a reactive artist. I feed off of stimuli going on around me. I overhear something on a train or see a newspaper headline or look at graffiti on a bathroom wall and I react to it. I try to turn it into some form of literature. I may post a half-hearted gentle reminder to folks leaving me behind on my own post but I won’t have a temper tantrum or unfriend them. I do issue a caveat though: You would do well to copyright your thoughts if you place them on my post. I will steal them shamelessly if the spirit so moves me and I find a way to crystalize it into what I would like to believe is art.
