I WATCHED A BIOGRAPHICAL FILM ON BOB DYLAN DIRECTED BY MARTIN SCORSESE FIVE TIMES. WHAT STRUCK ME WAS DYLAN INITIALLY JUST WANTED TO PERFORM, HAD AVERAGE TALENT, WAS A MUSIC JUNKIE, AND HUSTLED PEOPLE OF IMPORTANCE.
HIS CAREER TOOK OFF WHEN HE STARTED TO WRITE AND PERFORM HIS OWN MUSIC AND HUSTLED A TALENT SCOUT THAT COULD GRASP HIS MUSIC. DYLAN WAS NOT SOUGHT OUT BY SOMEONE IN THE PASS THE HAT OFF BROADWAY COFFEE HOUSE AUDIENCES, SAYING “YOU SHOULD MAKE A RECORD”. NO DYLAN BANGED DOWN THE DOOR OF A KNOWN TALENT SCOUT THAT KNEW THE GAME AND WAS RESPECTED. GRANTED DYLAN WAS A FANTASTIC GIFTED INSIGHTFUL GENIUS WRITER COMPOSER ON MANY SUBJECTS, BROKE ON THE SCENE DURING THE PROTEST YEARS OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS, AND THE VIETNAM WAR. HIS TIMING FITTING INTO THE HIPPIE YEARS OF REVOLUTION. IT SEEMS EVERY MOMENT OF HISTORY IS UP FOR SOME TYPE OF PROTEST. WOODY GUTHRIE A CASE IN POINT OF ILLUMINATING THE PLIGHT OF THE DUST BOWL DOWN AND OUT MIGRANT WORKERS AND THEN TAKING ON HITLER. WOODY GUTHRIE THE IDOL OF DYLAN. DYLANS VOICE WAS A TURN OFF FOR ME. I WOULD RATHER LISTEN TO HIS SONGS SUNG BY JOAN BIAZ OR JOHNNY CASH, SO I DISMISSED HIM. BIG MISTAKE.
WHAT IS COOL ABOUT COMPOSING A SONG, IS THAT IT IS INSTANT ART, MANAGEABLE TO PUT TOGETHER AND PERFORM, AND LASTS FOREVER. THE TRICK COMES IN GETTING IT OUT TO THE PUBLIC.
WHERE IS THE HOWLING AGENT I NEED TO HUSTLE? I AM A GREAT BELIEVER IN SPECIALISTS, BEING A SALESMAN IS AN ART OF THE HIGHEST CALLING WHEN DEALING WITH POSITIVE MATERIAL.
I BEING THE POSITIVE ARCHITECT THAT WANTS TO BETTER HUMANITY THROUGH ARCHITECTURE AND HAVE THE SCHEMES AND INTERESTS TO DO SO.
ALL YOU THAT FOLLOW MY BLOG ARE FAMILIAR WITH ME WHINING ABOUT NOT DOING SIGNIFICANT THINGS AT THE MOMENT OTHER THAN MY BLOG. WHAT I NEED FROM YOU IS HOW CAN I GET AN AGENT THAT WILL PROMOTE ME, SPIN THE REBEL PERSONALITY AND DIRECTNESS.
I HAVE TRIED THIS BEFORE ON MY OWN AND HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL. GEHRY WHEN HE STARTED HIS PRACTICE IMMEDIATELY HIRED A FULL TIME PUBLICIST AND PAID HER WELL.
THE STANDARD AGENT WORKS THE EXISTING TRIED AND TRUE METHODS THAT ARE BARRED TO ME. WHEN YOU VENT CRITICISM AT THE EXISTING THERE MUST BE A SYMPATHETIC LISTENER. MAYBE FRUSTRATED ARTISTS, ENVIRONMENTALISTS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, CITY PLANNERS WOULD LISTEN, THE GENERAL PUBLIC OFTEN RELATES. WHERE DO YOU FIND THE EAR FOR THE REBEL? WITH THE YOUTH, AND AS DYLAN CHANTED, OLD IS NOT WHERE IT IS AT. ARCHITECTURE BEING AN OLD MANS GAME, YOU WOULD THINK THAT WHEN ARCHITECTS BECOME FAMOUS AND HAVE FUCK YOU MONEY THEY COULD DO WHAT THEY WANT. NOT SO, ARCHITECTURE STILL TAKES OTHERS PEOPLE MONEY TO PRACTICE.
IN ARCHITECTURE ANY TYPE OF IDEALISM AND REBELLIOUS SPIRIT IS WITH THE YOUTH. UNIVERSITIES BRING FORTH THE KNOWLEDGE , CAUSES AND THE IDEALISM EPITOMIZED AT THE RIGHT TIME WITH THE STUDENT HAVING NOTHING TO LOSE OF MATERIAL VALUE. PARTS OF THAT HAPPENS IN THE PROFESSION, BUT WATERED DOWN TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE CAPITALIST CLIENT.
WHEN THE STUDENT MEETS THE REALITY OF PROFESSIONAL OFFICES, THAT REBELLIOUS NATURE IS DAMPENED REAL FAST, OTHERWISE, HIT THE ROAD JERK.
A MOVEMENT DEPENDS ON THE COMBINATION OF ALL PARTS REBELLING AND EVOLVING. EDUCATOR, STUDENT, ARCHITECT, POLITICIAN, WORKER, LAWYER, BANKER, DEVELOPER.
I WANT AN AGENT TO PUT ME IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE OF THOSE SOULS. ARE THERE ANY AGENTS OUT THERE THAT CATER TO THAT REVOLUTION MARKET? IF NOT IT IS A MARKET WAITING TO HAPPEN.
THE AGENT MUST HAVE AN ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSION FOR WHAT I AM PROPOSING .
THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF THINGS THAT CAN GENERATE MONEY, OH YES THAT TABO WORD. “MONEY”, THAT IN A CAPITALIST SOCIETY, WE ALL NEED TO GET THROUGH THE DAY.
ALL ASPECTS OF THE LIST ENACTED TO GENERATE A TOTAL ASSULT:
LECTURES, I HAVE GIVEN HUNDREDS OF THESE AND I AM GOOD AT IT. FUNNY, INFORMATIVE, AND WITH PROJECTS OF INTERESTS TO SHARE. THE ORIGINAL GREEN MAN . IF THE BEACH BOYS CAN DO IT, WHY NOT I ? GREEN CONFERENCES ARE HAPPENING ALL THE TIME, ITS BEEN YEARS SINCE I HAVE BEEN INVITED. WHY?
A RESEARCH LAB TO TRANSFORM LA, SF AND NY INTO THE GREEN PARADISE. THERE ARE POTENTIAL STUDENTS THAT ARE ON THE FRINGE OF THE ARCHITECTURAL SOCIETY THAT WANT TO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES IN A REALISTIC WAY AT ALL LEVELS. SOME CONTACT ME DIRECTLY NOW. THIS IS A DIFFERENT FORM OF TEACHING, WITH ME SETTING THE PROJECT TO INVESTIGATE ASSISTED BY THE STUDENTS. I DID THIS WITH THE GREEN MACHINE, TURF TOWN AND JUNGLE THEATER. BUT WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT IS UNIVERSAL SYSTEMS APPLICABLE WORLD WIDE. THE LAB TO LIVE ON AFTER MY DEPARTURE.
MINI CHARRETTES ON ADDRESSING URBAN DESIGN PROJECTS IN A SPECIFIC CITY, SPONSORED BY UNIVERSITIES OR CIVIL GROUPS.
A MOVIE SCRIPT ON TRANSFORMING LOS ANGLES INTO AN REALISTIC EVOLUTIONARY REMODELED GREEN PARADISE IDEALISTIC CITY. FORMERLY THE BIOMORPHIC BIOSPHERE, BUT NOW A REALISTIC APPROACH THAT LEADS ONE FROM NOW TO COMPLETION IN A DECADE. A SYSTEM THAT THE WHOLE WORLD COULD BUILD WITH. I WROTE A SCRIPT BEFORE, BUT NOW KNOW WITH THE PROPER ASSISTANCE IT COULD ALL SEEM PLAUSIBLE TODAY. WHY NOT SHOW A POSITIVE FUTURE RATHER THAN BLADE RUNNER DOOMSDAY?
PANELS AND TALK SHOWS, I AM AT EASE IN THIS WORLD AND ADD SPICE TO DULL SITUATIONS.
WRITING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY, I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR TWENTY YEARS AND HAVE A TON OF STUFF AND A FOLLOWING OF 1500 A DAY ON MY BLOG. SOMEONE THAT CAN SPIN THE RENEGADE ARCHITECT TELLING HIS STORY.
THE BIG ONE OF ARCHITECTURAL OR URBAN PLANNING COMMISSIONS. THE NORMAL WAY AN ARCHITECT EXERCISES HIS ART. THE ULTIMATE. DESIGNING AND OVERSEEING THE CONSTRUCTION OF BUILDINGS OR COMPLEXES. TO ME AT THIS POINT IT IS PICKING AND CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROJECTS. ANY ARCHITECT CAN FULFILL THE PRACTICAL NEEDS OF CLIENTS, BUT THE HERD IS PARTED BY THE ARTIST ARCHITECT AND CROWNED BY THE ARTIST ARCHITECT BUILDING WHAT NURTURES THE EARTH AND ALL ITS INHABITANTS.
I KNOW THERE ARE PUSHY ARCHITECTURAL SAVY SOUL MATE AGENT TYPES THAT WOULD ENJOY AND PROFIT FROM THE ADVENTURE SPINNING ME AND A MOVEMENT.
THE AGENT RECEIVING A MAJOR CUT IS NO PROBLEM, GETTING THE MESSAGE OUT IS THE OBJECTIVE. THE REST WILL FOLLOW. A FINANCIAL SUPPORT BASE MAKES PRODUCTIVENESS EFFICIENT .
GO FOR IT OR REFER THIS CHANCE OF A LIFETIME TO THE RIGHT SOURCE. AS ZOBO THE GREEK SAYS ” I’VE GOT ENOUGH FIGHT IN ME TO DEVOUR THE WORLD”
lets see some work in progress. They just gave some awards for animal architecture (they mean a biomorphic living architecture (that I an linking to your site)
WORK IN PROGRESS? MY WHOLE ARCHITECTURAL CAREER IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.
YOU A BELIEVER OF ALL PEOPLE KNOW THAT.
HELP ME FIND AN AGENT THAT BELIEVES IN ME.
DOES NOT THIS BLOG MAKE SENSE? AND WHERE ARE THOSE BELIEVERS IN ME THAT CAN ADVISE ME ON HOW TO PROCEED TO FIND AN AGENT OR WILL ASSIST ME TO DO SO? I AM TRYING TO BE CONSTRUCTIVE ON HOW TO COME TO GRIPS WITH THE OBVIOUS. HAD MY 74 BIRTHDAY LAST SUNDAY AND FEEL GREAT.
This blog is your megaphone. See if you can’t figure out as many ways to pull people from other parts of the web (interacting and critiquing on other blogs and sites in a manner that is both genuine and self serving, but in a good way) as well a generating as much interesting content as possible here. Try a daily concept or something that people can read a few times a week. You have such a spirit of positivity. Shine that out there and try to figure out as many ways to bring the web to you, and to have a presence in as many forums as possible as often as possible. A well thought out Glen Small comment on another Arch blog with your digital signature will benefit you more than you think, The web crawlers will add you to google searches every time you post. That is how blogs and sites move up in the search engine cues. Also think like a cross promoting whore… Incorporate things you like (like Bob Dylan) in your posts more often. The web is vast but patterns arise, so why not manipulate them. Be the architect of your publicity or hire a few web savvy interns to help you with it. You could be phoning in a blog post to a voice mail… Have some kid type it up and be on speakerphone building a model for a visual aid all at the same time. Then you have the kid post the picture and do all the web part for you. In trade you could mentor or just be Glen. I’m sure there are people who would give some time under your instruction in trade for wisdom. Delegate. Be as creative and short deadline driven as you would if you had a billion dollars and cancer. The problem I have in being as prolific as possible is getting bogged down by the how and not looking at the other fun questions that will inspire and bring out the hope you have to offer.
Do something like 30 things that could improve Los Angeles in thirty days. With a different problem being addressed and the most fluid quick way of developing the concept in to something that can be communicated. The rest will follow. More ideas and more posts. That is the best way to bring in attention and thus money and then hopefully snowballing success until you are terraforming the moon!
Forgot to mention to post links with your digital signature. You know just a comment, your name (or small at large), and a hyperlink for the web crawler to follow.
AN AVALANCHE OF POSITIVE IDEAS.
YOU WENT ON AND ON WITH ADVICE. MANY OF WHICH MY BLOG MAN TIM BARNES HAS BEEN PUSHING ME TO DO. IT IS TRUE I CAN GIVE ADVISE AND CRIT, BUT WHAT I REALLY WANT TO CONTRIBUTE IS TO DO IS CREATE POSITIVE SHEMES TO SHOW THE WAY. THAT IS MY TRUE TALENT. I LOOK AT THE URBAN DESIGN SCALE TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL. FOR ARCHITECTS AND PLANNERS THERE ARE TOO MANY PARTS TO OVERLAY AND CONNECT UP. YOUR ADVICE OF FINDING THINGS TO GIVE A QUICK DESIGN SOLUTION WAS INTRIGUING, BUT GIVING THE PEARLS TO THE SWINES. IS ONE OF MY FAULTS, GIVING THINGS AWAY TO THE WRONG SOURCES. WHEN IT HAS WORKED FOR ME IS TO IDENTIFY THE CORRECT SOURCE TO GIVE IT AWAY TO THAT APPRECIATES THE IDEA AND RESPECT MY IMPUT.
MY NEXT BLOG IS ON MY TWO DAY JURY AT SCI-ARC RECENTLY. THE BIG POINT FOR ME REALIZING I NEED BIG TIME ASSISTANCE TO CONVEY MY IDEAS WITH THE MOST PUNCH. THE AVERAGE STUDENT HAS MAJOR COMPUTER SKILLS THAT I NEED TO MOVE FOWARD. THEREFORE I AM PITCHING A RESEARCH LAB.
IF THERE IS A COMPUTER NUT THAT CAN ASSIST ME CONTACT ME TO DO THE THINGS AARON
SUGGESTS CONTACT ME firstname.lastname@example.org
KEEP CLOSE AND KEEP ADVISING ME
Forget the agent Glen. Agents dont do shit.
Keep designing keep drawing keep posting keep it up. It all gets out there.
talk about the new project. talk about the green machine. talk about Managua Park canopy and how it relates to Jungle theatre and Biomorphic Biosphere. Also you are a good critic. Try posting on archinect
YES! I’ll be your part-time AGENT/Publicist for the projects we both like with timely synergies we can pinpoint and broadcast.
I have a HUGE international opportunity for you Thursday Sept 22, 2011 from approx 10am – 1pm. Together (phone conference call) we can promote your BIOMORPHIC BIOSPHERE. I can get you a turn to pinpoint key features to activists, media, bus/mkg power brokers, investors, architects, bureaucrats, and more, etc.
Glen, I would work for/with you to capture key international profile repeatable iconic opportunities. Like Christo, who is so out of the box, that no itemized CPA business plan can make $$ sense to old school public city bureaucrats. I’ll show you how we can build a team and do it together.
Also, I have 3-4 very high-profile opportunities that we can build on in a few days.
Call or text me asap and email me!
All my best,

WAITING FOR YOUR REPLY WITH INTEREST.
Your old fans & rookies can see the preview I already wrote on you (and Frank Gehry interview scheduled to broadcast nationwide on NPR Radio Thursday, Sept 22, from 11am-noon EDT). The preview and more is on my websites, below <– Your fans can reply with questions or comments on how you and I and Gehry could move mountains as collaborative advocates rightsizing gorgeous green sustainable sculptured urban cities, inside and out.
You can start a new Blog page with this info if you like.
All my very best,
This article is very interesting. Thanks for the analysis. PBC architecture.
