Well, after reading a book entitled “Iconoclast“, I’ve come to realize that I am one. And via this web portal, I intend to take my iconoclastic meandering to the next level…
An iconoclast is basically a person who observes the world from a unique vantage point and isn’t afraid to fully embrace the experience; relentlessly defining their existence according to this unique vision, regardless of the consequences.
The end result of such behavior is generally: loneliness, incarceration, untimely death, or revolutionary success.
And while each of those prospects holds a certain appeal, after a decade of starving artistry and limited dividends, I’ve re-assessed my situation and have begun to re-think my approach…
Privacy and anonymity are things I’ve always held dear.
And publicly promoting myself as an “artist” has never really appealed to me.
But I’ve come to the conclusion that entering the public realm will be necessary in order to take my projects to the next level.
Networking is not my strong suit.
And I don’t traditionally “get out” too much.
But I want to connect with people who are into my ideas and will help me bring them to life. A blog seems like a good place to start working towards this.
Just what is old Gary Lachance all about?
Well, he enjoys dreaming impossible dreams and throwing himself into weird/hilarious/risky situations; documenting as much of it as possible along the way.
He has many stories to share and plenty of unusual ideas to proffer, running the gamut from new humanitarian movements to guerrilla DJing to jumping off high things.
Whether these are the meanderings of a crackpot or something slightly more inspirational remains to be seen…
In any case, it’s going to be an interesting ride and you are invited!
