If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.

A Day in the Life of Tim Friday (2013) Dir: Corey Davis Writer: Sean Fahie
“As if Atlanta wasn’t cool enough…
Artist and filmmaker Corey Davisrecently screened his newest film, A Day in the Life of Tim Friday. And it’s definitely worth a watch. Tim Friday follows the main character around the streets of Atlanta, partying, scoring weed, and riding his bike. Misadventures throughout the day lead him to a point of reflection, in which he questions his life. Sound familiar? In short, it’s pretty much a story about a man and his superficial desires.
Written by Sean Fahie, the short film is set against the backdrop of Atlanta’s Afro-punk community, bringing light to a unique sub culture within the city. Shot in and around the Fourth Ward, Fairlie-Poplar district and other famous locations solidify Atlanta as a character in this tale of misadventure.”
“As The City Sleeps,” is a group show that will happen at MINT Gallery on Saturday, May 12th, 2012. Curated by Atlanta artists, Brandi Supra and Sean Fahie, “As The City Sleeps,” has been a show concept developed over a whole year and will feature up and coming artists, Brandon Sadler, Emily Pidgeon, Estela Semeco, Jane Garver, Nikita Gale, and Will Mitchell.
The show will focus on the artists’ interpretations of what “Night,” and life during this time represents to them in a series of different media including interactive installation pieces, photography and drawings/paintings. The pieces will be not limited to showcasing Atlanta specifically, but will also include others.
In addition MINT’s Kitchen Annex will feature work submitted by more artists and will feature a zine made by Hydeatl.
We invite you to view our process in brainstorming, inspiration, ideas, progress, and experiences throughout the next months leading up to our show.

The most promising things happening on Atlanta’s arts scene happen in smokey basement bars. But this isn’t a story about a lonely artist’s alcohol-inspired pipe dreams—it’s about two very smart local artists who also happen to be savvy businessmen and social entrepreneurs. Leroy Basnight and Sean Fahie started The Influencers, a bi-weekly Thursday night meet-up at Edgewood Speakeasy.
Really awesome Q+A up at CommonCreativ right now about The Influencers, a weekly event about discovering talent and artists in Atlanta. Go check it out!
Also, counting the seconds until our redesign. I’m spending all weekend coding away. So excited.
We are excited and proud to have one of Atlanta’s OG's Dres ThaBeatnik as our next influencer. If you are not aware of who this guy is… you need to move out from the suburbs and join us in celebrating.
