An Amusement and a PLAN *BUWAHAHAHAHAHA*

So you know how it's a big giant pain in the booty to write a bio? How you feel like a tool saying all these fantastic things about yourself, but you have a vested interest in it coming out okay? Well I ran across a solution this weekend thanks to my friend Marjorie... It's a random artist bio generator!!!

Here was mine:

My work explores the relationship between gender politics and UFO sightings.

With influences as diverse as Wittgenstein and Roy Lichtenstein, new combinations are created from both orderly and random dialogues.

Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of the zeitgeist. What starts out as vision soon becomes corroded into a hegemony of power, leaving only a sense of decadence and the prospect of a new undefined.

As undefined derivatives become distorted through frantic and academic practice, the viewer is left with a statement of the inaccuracies of our culture.

Go here to generate your own!

And as to that PLAN!!!!! *BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA*

Plan for WHAT, you ask...

Well, see, TOMORROW is the release date for my second book, The Begonia Bribe... so HERE are the places I've booked to visit on my blog tour! I am writing something different for each, so hope you'll get a chance to visit these fabulous hosts and hostesses.

But seriously HUGE congratulations with your book release and all the best with your most NAKED blog tour!!!!

p.s. my arty bollocks bio is the one that says "ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the moment..."! LOL!

Take care

Jan Morrison said...

I love that crazy site! I couldn't get enough of it and have wasted hours of my precious human life. Also, I know feel like I could write my own obscure and highly irritating artist's statement. yay!

Hope you have a ball with Begonia! I'll follow you about - I'll even be your wing gal at Ms. Snark!

Hart Johnson said...

And you know the craziest thing... never in my life have I had a Sci-Fi idea and I woke up with a well-developed one today. I blame the UFO Sightings in my new bio *snort*

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Looking forward to hosting you on Friday, Hart!
And I hate writing bios...

Teresa Coltrin said...

I will mention you this week on Wednesday, if that's ok?

I'm excited for you!!

Johanna Garth said...

I'm off to amuse myself (waste time). I wonder if I could get away with actually using that bio somewhere...hmmm

Btw, if you'd like to do a guest post for Begonia let me know.

Hart Johnson said...

Awwww---Thank you so much folks that are willing to help! I really appreciate any and all help! I will organize and drop a note--how's that?

Hannah Kincade said...

Cogratulations on your new book!! I'm off to check out that site. Fun times ahead!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Ready for you next Monday!

Helena said...

I've just been told my copy of The Begonia Bribe is in at my bookstore, so I'm picking it up tomorrow! Another fun read from the great Alyse Carlson.
