WEB SITE ANNOUNCEMENT

HOORAY! HOORAY! I AM UP AND RUNNING A WEB SITE OF MY OWN CREATION. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CRITIQUE.

http://www.thomasjohntaylor.com/?alt_id=M3QN0-GA179-8Q3&ts=1291179978081

I am completely self educated on all things because I like to figure it all out through a process of trial and error. I eventually get it. Now all I need is the equipment that is neccessary for fullfillment. I desperatly need a Great Digital Camera Like That NIKON SLR 300 and A Large Format Printer with refillable ink pots and able to print on canvas for the thousands of Images I have created Digitally and My Photo's. I also need a Gallery and am willing to Man The Store until I Establish A Client Base and Raise The Capital Neccessary To Afford Some Staff People For The Large Public Performance Projects I Have In Mind. I Want To Be Able To Express My Creativity To Its Complete Potential.

MEMORIES OF 1968 IN EUROPE

I ENTERED LONDON UNDER THE WEATHER AND STRESSED BECAUSE I HAD JUST EXCAPED CUSTODY OF THE U.S.MARSHALLS WHO WERE TRANSPORTING ME BACK TO THE U.S.A. WE WERE STOPPING IN LONDON FOR 3 HOURS AND I WAS UNCUFFED AND ALLOWED TO USE THE FACILITIES TRUSTING MY WORD THAT I WOULD BE GOOD. LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE AS I DOVE OUT THE GROUNDFLOOR WINDO AND ROLLED A FEW FEET UNTIL I WAS UP, AND RUNNING ACROSS HEATHROW’S RUNWAY, CLIMBING A FENCE, AND HAILING A TAXIE THAT DROVE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD. THE CABBIE WAS LAUGHING AT MY CONDITION EXCLAIMING THAT HE HELPED MY GET A WAY FROM THE MOB CLOSE BEHIND…HA HA HA WE LAUGHTED ALL THE WAY TO PICCADILLY CIRCUS FOUNTAIN AND I PAID THE MAN $10 U.S. AND HE GAVE IT BACK SAYING HE WAS ONLY TO HAPPY TO HELP A BLOKE LIKE ME…I DIDN’T HAVE A PASSPORT OR I.D.AND ONLY HAD $40 U.S. TO MY NAME. I WALKED AND FOUND THE LOCAL FISH AND CHIPS AND THEY CHANGED MY MONEY INTO POUNDS AS WELL. I TOLD THEM ABOUT THE FIX I WAS IN. I HAD BEEN CAPTURED IN STOCKHOLM AND WAS BEING TRANSPORTED TO THE U.S.A. WHERE I EXCAPED TODAY FROM HEATHROW AIRPORT, YES THE GUY ON THE NEWS THAT GOT AWAY.I WAS AN AMERICAN “DESERTER”. THEY COULD EXECUTE ME AFTER MY COURT MARTIAL. THEY TALKED AMONGST THEMSELVES AND GAVE ME FREE FISH AND CHIPS AS WELL AS A FEW HUNDRED POUNDS TO HELP WITH MY JOURNEY AND THE PHONE NUMBER OF THE LOCAL CHAPTER OF PROTESTERS OF THE VIETNAM WAR AND PEACE INTERNATIONAL WHO SET ME UP WITH MR. JIM HAINES OF THE CREATIVE LIGHT LABORATORY ON DRURY LANE. IT WAS A GROUP OF THESPIANS, DANCERS, MUSIICIANS, ARTISTS, POETS, AND THEIVES…A WELL ROUNDED GROUP CREATING EVERYDAY IIN LIVING THEATHER WITH THE FIRST VIDEO CAPTURE AND UNEDITED EXPOSURE OF THE HUMAN SWARM THAT SHOWED UP EVERY EVENING TO EAT DRINK SMOKE HASH HAVE SEX AND SLEEP IN THE LOFT WHICH WAS A LARGE ROOM COMPLETED WITH 20 LARGE MATTRESSES AND COVERS AND CARPETS IN A PRETTY CLEAN ATMOSPHERE.I PLAYED GUITAR LIVE AND SANG AND DANCED EVEN NAKED SOME NIGHTS.IT WAS WHEN WE WERE YOUNG IN THE 60’S.WELL, THE BOBBIES

SHOWED UP ASKING ABOUT ME AFTER 3 MONTHS, I WAS STILL A CELEBRITY AND THE COMMUNISTS WITH THE SOCIALISTS GOT ME PAPERS TO TRAVEL THEY WOULD GET ME TO THE SOUTH OF FRANCE ON THE TRAIN. I WAS GIVEN FRANCS FOR MY POUNDS AND U.S.DOLLARS AFTER GOING TO THE HOME OFFICE FOR MY TEMPORARY VISA WITH MY PICTURE ON IT. THE FELLOW TRIED TO START A CONVERSATION, BUT I FEINED A CROOKED TONGUE LIKE IDIOT SPEECH THAT EMBARRASED HIM INTO STAMPING AND DISCHARGING ME IN AN EXPRESS MODE OPERENDI.I WAS STAYING WITH WONDERFUL PEOPLE THAT BESTOWED MORE THAN GIFTS AND SUPPORT MONIES, THEY SAVED ME FROM THE BEAST THE ILLUMINATI THOSE MURDERERS THAT WERE CARPET BOMBING CAMBODIA AND THEY WEREN’T EVEN AT WAR, WITH THEM. SIMILAR TO THE AFGANISTAN AND PAKISTAN DILEMMA. I WAS A PACIFIST AND A DESERTER FROM THE VIETNAM WAR. AND THE U.S. ARMY WHOM WAS A FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN DESERTERS COMMITTEE I FELT LIKE A MARTYR READY TO DIE FOR THE CAUSE, BUT I DECIDED TO PURSUE FREEDOM AND LIVE MY LIFE WITH ART, MUSIC, DANCE, THEATER I WAS HEADED FOR PARIS WHERE I WOULD CREATE GIANT MURALS ON THE SIDEWALKS NEAR CHURCHES AND BASILICA’S WITH LARGE CHALKS AND PASTELS.”THE MADONNA AND CHILD WAS THE MOST GENEROUS IMAGE PROVEN BY THE MONEY COLLECTED IN THE BEGGARS BOWL PLACED ABOVE THE SIGNITURE.I WOULD SIT IN A CAFÉ OR BAR CLOSEBY WHERE I COULD KEEP AN EYE ON THE BOWLSO AS I COUOLD RUN OUT AND COLLECT THE BILLS DEPOSITED IN THE BOWL PORTRAITS FOR 20 FRANCS SITTING IN A BAR OR CAFÉ IS A WORTHY ENTERPRIZE.I USED PASTELS AND EVERYONE LOOKED LIKE A CLOWN, I HAD A GREAT TIME CONVINCING EVERYONE THAT THEY LOOKED LIKE THAT TO ME.
