I met Chris Flemmons while I was living in the college town of Denton, Texas. He’s a talented singer and songwriter. He has a band called the Baptist Generals. He’s also a filmmaker. He was Director of Photography on a short film I made called “Kung Fu Teenage Bigfoot” the trailer…and he also did the voice over.
I’ve always liked Chris’ demeanor. During this conversation, he mentions he sometimes feels like a crotchety old man, but the thing is, he had that vibe even in his twenties…he wears it well, it suits him. Anyhow, I always get a lot from his point of view. I hope you do too.
Lisa Rawlinson is making art again after a twenty-year break. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to catch up with her. When I met her, she was one of the many talented artists in the Good/Bad Art Collective in Denton, Texas in the 90s. During the twenty-year break, Lisa did stuff like get married, have kids, get divorced, have a career in publishing, you know, life.
Then a few years ago I noticed that she was sharing a ton of new and interesting artwork on social media and it really struck me that she was another person out there struggling to express herself in this new reality we all share.
I’ve uploaded some of Lisa’s artworks on to this podcast’s facebook page or you can find her work at lisarawnlinsonart.com (and I’ll paste a few below) Whichever way, I suggest you take a look at some of her paintings while you listen to this if you can, I think it will make it more enjoyable.
Note: There’s one part where Lisa and I were wondering if gravitational waves could travel faster than the speed of light. I googled it. It seems the answer is no, but there are other factors that can cause light to reach us slower than the gravitational waves.
