This blog is both a written and a photographic/artistic journey of the Generation X experience.  This blog is somewhat of a digital art museum of different forms of media that I have used to create Gen X art.  For example, fiber optic lights were big in the 1980s, so you'll see regular and time-lapsed multi-colored fiber optic photos on my blog.  Flannelgraphs made from felt were big in the 1970s, so you'll see different colors of felt in the background of many of my photos.   

Most of the photos on this blog were taken by me.  The only images you'll see on the blog not taken by me are 1) when I embed a YouTube video - in that case you'll see a static image that is part of the video 2) the rare occasion that I use someone else's photo 3) if I take a digital photo of an old photo from my Gen X growing up years. 

I like to do a lot of photos of nature.  Generation X feels like in many ways that they didn't get to experience nature growing up, or that they miss experiencing nature in the present because of all the demands of modern life.  Even if these are only digital images, hopefully these can be windows into the beauty of the world around us that is not confined by four walls.

The Blog Soundtrack
Some blogs provide background music when you open them...  

This is tricky since people have such varying tastes in music.  While this blog doesn't play music when you open it, if you want to fully connect with this blog's aesthetic when you are reading do the following:

Use Pandora (free personalized internet radio)

and create a prototype station based on the musician Ulrich Schnauss.  From here, you'll get music from Boards of Canada, Solar Fields, Tangerine Dream, Working for a Nuclear Free City, Brian Eno, and others.  Based on your town taste you can choose which songs you like or don't.  This will give you your own tailored background soundtrack and at the same time, it will put you on the right wavelength since this is what I listen to when I write.  Whenever I am in the process of writing and I hear a new song online that seems to be intrinsically on this blog's wavelength, I'll go and look up who wrote the music - inevitably it is a Gen Xer. 



If I quote someone on this blog, it does not mean that I agree with all of their ideology.  Sometimes I might like one quote that someone has said, but I may disagree with many other things they have said.  

As of 2015, any recommendation of any products on the blog is only done to explain or to refer to something - these are all uncompensated.
