Cur1yJ Platform Launch Guide + Notes
Tuesday, December 3, 2019

So, I've spent the past little while building this platform, Cur1yJ.

The "L" is a ONE (1). Prounounced CURL-EEEE JAY.

Cur1yJ is me.

"Titan" is the little creature that you see.

I'll be live streaming a lot of painting, discussion, visual art, tech, etc. here, before the end of the year. Just have to run a couple test streams. And it's connected to Twitch too, if you're into that.

Journal entries/news/blog info is in the News section.

Journeys are where you can follow along in a more personal, specific, detailed way. Some are in progress, real time. Some have evolved, or "completed". Like when I was doing my oil painting study.

The Gallery is where you can check out my visual artwork and tech/developement projects.

Streams is for all your video-viewing pleasure.

Store is where you can support and purchase gear (currently an Etsy shop).

When I'm not actively live streaming, I host other channels/music/art/good juju. You can watch/listen/chat using the video player while browsing the platform.

Please, use the sidebar and chat with us... You can also ShareFollowSubscribe, Donate, View the Schedule, and quick Explore all of the most recent content in one place.

If you sign in to your Account, you can unlock exclusive Titan Avatar .svg rewards for taking certain actions on the platform. You can download them, use them, print them, and do whatever you like! ... I won't tell you exactly what to do to get them all, you'll have to explore (I'll expand more on that system in the future).

In the footer, you'll find Social Links, Contact Info, and Newsletter Signup.

And from here, we grow, together :).

Welcome to the Jungle <3.

Studio 38, PCK, Yopoh & Vibe City Reflection
Friday, December 1, 2017

Years ago, I co-founded a Non-Profit project for the community and arts based out of MA called Vibe City. Around the same time I was pretty involved with Section 17 and managing (I hate this word, it really was way deeper and more meaningful than that) Planetary Circus Kingdom (Soundcloud, Youtube), then Yopoh (Bandcamp, Facebook). Over a span of 4 or 5 years, I worked with a team of amazing supporters, contributors, friends and artists, focusing on the the advancement of independent art, creativity, positivity, love, and the success and sustainability of community, and the role that we all play in these important fields; both current and past members and their creative and passionate endeavors. I still carry on that spirit with me.

We hosted numerous events and seminars with artists looking to expand their consciousness and follow their dreams. It's a wonderful DIY community. I wore many hats during these inspiring years. I collaborated with PCK and Yopoh directly as they were involved in every project. We built a studio (Studio 38) that's still a haven today for artists to create, record, and practice all forms of expression and creativity through sound and art. I built a live streaming service to broadcast our activity and maintained some form of web presence. Purchased more music/art equipment, lighting, event gear, decorations, building materials, and studio tools than I can count. I helped manage, coordinate, plan, and execute all of our events. We organized a series of art and music showcases around New England. We completed numerous paintings and recorded multiple albums during this time. I'm so grateful for that time of my life. I was able to evolve and learn together with a growing, caring collective of people.

A look at the art/music studio we built in the south coast of MA. Poured my spirit into this place. One of the hardest parts about moving West was leaving this place's energy.
