that's fantastic, really, i'm so pleased for you, you finally did it, you made a website, and now what? you have some works you want people to see? that's nice (no, really, it is, and i think they're interesting) so, what's the best way of doing this then? drop down menu's off the cards, this is hot-glue not square space, strictly DIY, so hyper links then. and in what order? does it really have to be chronological, or anti-chronological? i thought about arranging everything in a circle, making it super spiritual ... and what ... purpose ... hm, good word, but better leave that for now. you've made the first step, well, second really, you made a website, made it all nice, and then decided you hated it, it repulsed you, it made your skin crawl like those thoughts that hound you, pretty placid thoughts really, only vigorous and heavy images of your desktop, your second mind, so it repulsed you and you decided that the time isn't going to be your enemy, but your friend, and that you had enough of the product-making website and really, what's the big deal about that. sure, i've got flickr, twitter, facebook, instagram, the whole bunch (not that i use them), all the sociable social medias, but you know why they're not here? because i hate them bloody icons and the last thing i want is for my brain to go kaput because the goddamn images just don't gel, they just don't gel, and the whole thing doesn't gel. But i wanted to do this, i want to do this. Want to do the whole website thing. wanted to show myself, wanted to show myself off, hell, even become vulnerable, become a part of the website-crew, the machine. But to be honest with you, my favourite websites are the anti-websites, the 404 Page Not Found websites, the websites that use other means, other ways of displaying ,showing, evoking ... And I'm happy to at least attempt to be a part of those, to fill the page with text that is as much me as my art - my tag is @ngalicae you can find me on most networks if you search hard enough - to emit these free wheeling thoughts and anti- anti- anti- rambles that disconcert me only because I am to please monsieur and don't you? I mean madame (I'm female by the way, cis-female, sometimes non-binary, or always, depending on how you define it, pretty femme, definitely neuro-divergent, occasionally bleak or desperate (or despairing) but always cheery, especially at work, I work in a kitchen and on the floor, recently chopped my hand nearly off, the nurse was sweet, called me beautiful, a little soldier, gave me stitches). It would be nice to go on: as I was saying i had a website and now it is gone, and in its place is this, this text, this thing ... and i've chosen black and white as my theme, simple, easy, would you like to hear some poetry? i'll try to find a way to wire it to you down the line, the internet bamboozles me, last thing i want is to get into any sort of trouble, but if you want to hear some please invite me to a reading or something, i've got lots to say just no idea where to put it, you know what i'm saying? Sure, sure, I get you. You think I'm having a laugh, doing this as some kind of joke, a bit of fun, don't you know there's all those people out there tryna make it, doing the right thing, making themselves an online presence, biting the bullet and just get get getting themselves out there, cos you gotta put yourself out there to succeed kid, don't ya know that? you gotta graft, gotta do something goddamn, can't just sit on your lazy arse and wait for the world to come to you. so then, where's your work? your lifetime of output, your residencies, your carefully collected and selected exhibitions, your extra curriculum vitae that gives you even more of an existential crisis headache because it infiltrates into your life so you live it less and live this more, live this documentation, but hell, you're not documentation, you're Divine creation! you're it baby! 100% real fully certified human being with a spark of the pizzazz Universal energy and don't you know it! Don't quote me, it's common knowledge, uhuh, yeah, yeah, whatever, look can you hold on a sec I got a phone call coming in on the line? I'm currently the proud owner of a samsung 360 it's sleek and does the job right, only thing is when i attach photos to send to myself via email i have to do it one at a time, man you cannot imagine what a drag that is when i have a handful of juicy snaps to send to yours truly! are you still there? yeah, sorry about that, important person, they wanted to offer me a job, they don't know anything about me, other than my name, i was born angelica plus van clarke, but the combination makes me reel so i never fully say it, unless i have to, so its just angelica to you, and if you want to know my middle names they're rose and evangeline. Double angel, yeah i get it, but i like to think of myself as fallen, you know, like the Preminger film? I'm really into those femme fatales, they're fucking with the patriarchy they are. I'm off to bed, it's time, hurry up please, you'd be better off doing the same. alright, thanks for passing by, I'll be seeing ya.
