ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

The Shape of Things to Come

Remember that great song from the kinda creepy, kinda bad 1968 movie Wild in the Streets? Well, in just a few short weeks I hope everyone is going to be Wild in the Streets (in a good way) over the new issue of Pasticcio, the QUARTZ (you'll see!). I know I've been blogging about it for weeks, but it really is almost ready to roll. You can expect to see new work from such fabulously funky and prolific artists as Traci Bautista, Tiffini Elektra, Anahata Katkin and Misty Mawn but also a few we suspect you may not have seen before, like T. St. Esprit, Miko, and Holly Roberts. Above? That's the front cover. Below? Me, ala the jazz cutouts of Matisse, or maybe a paint by number set sans the usual suspects. . .
