The exhibition has naturally come to life since the venue, Bar Vinyl has a history as a special music venue having nurtured many DJs, musicians and other people in the music industry, which certainly has owed much to the area of Camden in which it is based.

Things are getting better. Moved and no one bad knows where I moved to and changed my phone number. Starting to feel healthy a bit. Spent $50,000 on crack in a year and it took a tole on my body. But in good spirtis and staring anew. Thx John


I apologize for laying all that on you but I was in a very bad place at the time. Very inconsiderate of me. Had to tell some one and you are so disconnected distance and life I felt safe tell you. You are a good man and do not deserve my problems. L John


bad shape Blade. off the dope but had to run thrupgh every cent I had first. Feel the fool,seriously considering suiside.I wish I hasd someone to send my prints and paintings to before. Addiction is a horrable thing. They say it is a desiese then treat you as a degernerate. In a real bad place right now. Few options. Hope the job is going well for you. I am quite lost. John

Merry Christmas to you too. Sitting here snorting hydrocodon and oxy powder, sure mellows out a christmas. I am excepting the fact I am a true dope fiend and will probably be for life. So big deal. At least I don't have MS like my buddy.Have lined upa few scrip writing doctors so I don't have to hustle for it on the street. Am getting excited again about life and have started working on my house. And hopefully will start creating images again. Have excepted that woman will always use me for sex. The curse of being halfway good looking and well indowd (big Johnson). I have married women that call me when their husband leaves the house so they can get some. Better than nothing i guess. It is a strange life I live. It would have killed most people but I am stronger thatn most. best to you and yours this Christmas.
