First Friday

No, this post is not about any kind of special religious mass or anything like that (sorry to disappoint). What I'm referring to is the First Friday arts celebration-thing that goes on in Phoenix on the first friday of every month. I can't believe that last Friday was the first time I had ever been! I'm an art major for the sake of Pete! Anyway, wow. W.O.W. It was one of the most fun, interesting, thought-provoking, crazy, and somewhat disturbing experiences that I have had in a long time. I like lists, so I'm going to list (in ranking order) my top fav and not-top-favs of the night. Enjoy!
 *Most of these pics were stolen off of the website. I didn't take many pictures, but the ones I did are pure gold. pure. gold.

Top Favs
5. I love when people get really excited about art -there were a TON of people there, and a lot were dressed up, playing music, painting art ...at the same time.
 
4. It's always a great time when I get to go experience new things with Camaron (It would be really precious of me to have posted this as my #1 fav, but you'll understand why I didn't when you see what I did post for #1)
3. The Scientology headquarters of AZ was there. I don't know why that's in my top 5, I guess it was just interesting to see that it's a real thing -and apparently, the same people who protest at the Easter Pageant also have beef with Tom Cruise.

2. There were some works that were so creative and fun to look at that I got some major inspiration and       cravings to make me some art:)
1. When there's something strange in your neighborhood ...who ya gonna call?



Not-top-Favs
5. No free food. Apparently, last time Camaron went, they gave out free Twinkies.
4. They didn't block off the whole road. Usually they do -I'm guessing for the Fridays in summer, they don't close the whole street because there are less people (because it's HOT but it was pretty nice last Friday)
3. I'm just preparing you for #2 and #1 (on this list -not the other #2 and #1 teehee, but close)
2. Some of the art was completely deceiptful. It would lure me in by looking innocent but very creative and interesting ...so I'd look closer ...and closer ...then it would throw disturbingly gross images in my face!!!! I didn't even see it coming!!! It was like that Dinosaur ride at Disneyworld! You never see it coming!!!
1. My poor poor eyes. It burns, it burns!
