other people's art


THIS photo (sorry..ART)  made me laugh! Let's get random. I love the styro foam he's using like wrist rests..and that he's propped up on work horse-whatever-those-things-R w/ boxes of sh*t underneath (AWESOME) and every other obvious thing about it that is hilarious (a single magenta croc (double gross), the poorly faked amputated knee (we can see that it's bent), cucumber fingers? sezza whatta?). Outstanding. bravo bravo.

this image is called 'crystal swallow' i think. I like it. ..to temper that sick other image is the great Simone d. Beauvoir (a quote of hers is the crux or nucleus of a current book project. How obvious is that?) and some more art. I found that art here...stumbled upon it while i was looking up  (one of)  the only galleries i like in Toronto.

My eyes are sore.
I'll snap out of my sarcasm like an elastic band listening to Elastica.
Just give me  5 minutes.

and lastly (it's hard 2 believe that word exists. it seems wrong but i'm using it)

IF NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINES ARE THE 'YELLOW PLAGUE' THEN BUILD ME A CROUP TENT OR THROW ME IN QUARANTINE FOR 24 YEARS! FINE! NO PROBLEM! NO MORE NGMs! please!

(as much as i dearly love them).

Yes. still at residency. still sorting.
xo
ps. tried zumba today. no comment.
Alright. Comment: i have mild dyslexia and i can only move to my own moves.
it was alright. the music was awful so that made it a drag. Over produced processed latin beats? NO THANK YOU. fix the music and i'll reconsider.

YES! I love the internet. I remembered TEMPER, TEMPER today when something came up that was totally unrelated, but slightly related, at work. (I'm friends with Donna, the artist formerly known as Muffie in Portland, and she gave me a copy in 1999. You had improved the cover with marker and signed the inside. I still think it's dreamy.)

Then I came home and scoured my bookshelves and yanked it open. Hadn't seen it in over a decade, I google ye and here you are! Excited about your upcoming books! (And dang jealous of your residency!!)
