if you are in the GTA, you can see SKID for real @ magic pony till august 2, 2009. Walk on by!
"Ghetto" is no longer an appropriate word to use. apparently. (even though I live half a block away from a 'ghetto'). I am now using "SKID" instead.
For example, one of the windows at my house is missing a screen. To prevent annoying flies from coming in to bug me, i put up a SKID screen made out of tutu tulle. It is held by green painter's tape. Now that's SKID!
pinnipeds cut out from rescued National Geographics. Pinnipeds are seals. Pinnies and pennies
a rusted can found on road. I rode by it for a few weeks before picking it up. I thought about it alot when I wasn't riding past it. I might need to frame this Self-Portrait.
BOOKS: Sweet Valley Highs (not worth reading), feminist theory texts: The Female Eunuch w/ most horrifying cover art - almost as brutal as the cover of SYBIL, Backlash by Susan Faludi...uh...women and confidence, self-confidence and women. Look. I tried to read these tomes and i AM a feminist but i dont have time to read 300-pages of academia. I'm too busy writing my own book (on these matters). It will be far more accessible. Rest assured.
Black Stallion (obsessed with movie as child. 'In Love' with Kelly Reno who played The Boy), Watership Down (never felt inclined to read this book. saw movie. disturbing and dark) et cetera
I've never been much for sacred cows. I rarely do things i should. Even though there are a hundred shoulds i put on myself daily. & that's plenty enough.
books became small mountains become circus tents with red flags/warning signals.
A Lake: flaxen-haired arian-looking girl/dutch-ess creating protective gate for a hamster (sonic youth album reference). stevie - a real lady! - grows from her head.
a pile of broken toe shoes.
toilet paper rolls
