June 6, 2011 was the first official day of LGW. I recruited Alexia to help me film / act in webisodes, MsStayPuft (formerly known as shortbus) to help me blog, and some of my friends to help me spread the word (before they had ANY idea what I was doing). The ideas came at least 5-6 months prior to the launch and filming started 3 months early.
Why did I do this? Well, in order to answer that question I have to reference my first 2 influences.
I used to watch adult swim off and on over the years. Space Ghost coast to coast, The Boondocks, Anime, etc. I was upset when AS started introducing live action shows. One day I ran across Tim & Eric and was like…???…but I liked it…so I watched another episode…and other…and other…aaaannnndddd I became a fan. It was a mix of dark humor, anti-humor, amateur acting, and uncomfortable situations. I was like “Wow, they’re literally doing WHATEVER they want…and they have a show on TV…that they’re getting paid to do it”. One thing I respect above many other things is ANYONE who can make a living doing whatever uniquely defines them…regardless of what it is. It inspired me to be me no matter what / that I could create a world of my own that could one day be self-sustaining.
Chris Guillebeau. An artist friend of mine posted a link on FB to this blog. Everything I read from this site encouraged me to seriously consider and begin my La Guardia World Website / Blog journey. There was a lot of encouragement and resources for artistic entrepreneurs. It was a marriage of Insanity (T&E) and Sanity (CG).
I use to separate the passions I had: Art / Music / The silly ideas that constantly ran through my head / The deep side of me. These 2 influences (along with a few others) motivated me to combine everything into one world. Every journey begins with a first step, so my first step was to channel the hidden insane part of myself that hadn’t been fully tapped into…and it’s been some of the most fun I’ve ever had. It also lead me to realize my passion for creative self-expression.
This new season will be one of balance. The site won’t only be a place of insanity and humor…it’ll now become a place that truly is LGW…a balance of everything I am and what I’m involved in. the silly and the deep. Stay tuned.
Design. Music. Ideas.
John LGW Fans,
I am moving. My new address is 123 Pinterest Lane. I update that site almost daily and you will still be able to find 'That Brief Moment' on there as well. I hope to see you there! Or not... totally up to you. No pressure. None at all... it's not like I stare at my laptop and click refresh every two seconds to see if anyone is liking my post or anything... nope. not me... but LaGuardia does on tumblr... all the time... so sad... you should go visit him so he'll stop hugging himself and repeating 'Forever Alone'.
Happy after Monday LGWers!
I have an important message from the band 85:
”Sunday June 10 we’ll be providing each of you with pure free music download. We decided to layoff the majority of our 85 band members, we cut down our 85 tracks to 5 (since we’re only releasing an ep) and after an intense 85hr meeting (no bathroom breaks) we decided that each track would be edited down from 85 min to 3-4min each. 85 waves goodbye.” - 85 band
Happy Monday Night LG World readers (aka…me)
We’re about 3 weeks away from the year anniversary of LG World (June 6, 2012). After the anniversary we’re gonna be taking the summer off to plan / rebuild, but you can still keep up to date with us on our many many social networks! This 2nd half of the year will bring a variety of changes. LG World will begin to stabilize. We’ll still maintain our insanity, but you’ll began seeing a greater variety of posts dealing with madness, deeper topics, and entrepreneurial things. You’ll also began to see links to other allies and projects we’re involved with.
Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks and continue to enjoy our pasts year of posts!
Stalk Ms. Staypuft!
