Chrysler, their new ad, and the PT Cruiser

I think Chrysler’s latest model is just as “eh” as everything else they’ve put out in terms of style in the last 45 years but I do love the commercial so very much.

“What ever happened to style?”

When do you the car makers sucked most of the style out of the automobiles they made?

I had such high high hopes for the PT Cruiser actually. It was going in such a great direction and I think it could’ve turned the tide as far as bringing back some of it’s early/mid-century style but alas, the PT Cruiser was nixed after less than 10 years. Why? Well I think they frankly just made it and left it alone for the most part. No additional thought was given to what could’ve developed into an amazing and classic vehicle. Instead they made a modern version of a paddy-wagon and called it a day.

But I digress. When do you think cars stopped being works of art?

five, six, seven, it’s twenty-eleven !

Tho’ I’m sure no one will read this to-day, I simply couldn’t let the first of the year pass without a post to mark the occasion

I’m still in the midst of setting up this journal and making it look as dandy as I can make it. I’ve had a website in the past for my artwork and another for music but difficulty in the logistics of maintaining them was a sure-fire way to sink those vessels quickly. I’ve also had a personal blog or two which also fell into disrepair and eventual demise due to the fact that, frankly, no one cared.

So that brings me here, friends; Hair Tonic & Horse Feathers. At its genesis I see it as part experiment, part art project, part love letter home, part commentary, part depository of oddities and repository of the old-fashioned, part antiquarium, part ballroom, and part magic and mystery. All that being said, I’m going to let it evolve/devolve as it will.

I’ve avoided putting together something like this for quite some time as severe pigeonholing is hobby of mine to a fault. I’ve had it in mind that to adequately display the facets of myself, my interests, and my creations, it must be done separately. I’m literally on the doorstep of 32 with my body of work being meager at best and that’s…well…. simply horse feathers! All my thinking has replaced the creating & the dreaming replaced the doing.

So this is my attempt to unfetter the muse, loosen the tongue, uncork the pen, and emancipate art and let it look like whatever it wants to look like and let it chose its own name.

I’ve been inspired greatly by what Emily is doing over at ‘Inside a Black Apple’. Slices of her creations, snapshots of home-life, links and musings on what interests her and so on. That’s my template for starting Hair Tonic and Horse Feathers and I am interested to see where it will go from here.
