end times



Endings are in the Log-air these days: the end of Daylight Savings Time... the end of a certain era for Slothy... and, 2 nights ago, legendary rock gods Lesion played their last show after 9 years of genius creative output, much to the sadness of their devoted fans. The turnout was huge, the crowd was jacked up on beer and candy corn for the sendoff, and the band kicked out a BLISTERING set. But first they screened 2 of their hilarious movies, one of which has bit parts for Slothy and Mr. Sloth. Both films are great, but "The Sucking" is my all-time favorite, with Dr. Hurtz in a dual role as himself and the bloodthirsty Dr. Mufungo. Watch the trailer and listen for audio werkz by DJ Dekker.

We were given the task of videotaping the entire show, which prevented us from doing a lot of jumping around. Here is a video clip of my personal favorite song, "Giant," taken with our little Canon Elph. Apologies for the poor sound quality; the footage from the fancycam has yet to be edited.

Last night the fabulous Jakkee (seen here as Charlene from "Designing Women") threw an Everyone Loves Halloween party; I was originally going to wear my formal 'tard helmet and seatbelt restraints, but they're at the cleaner's. So I resurrected an old Land O' Lakes spokes-squaw costume and picked up some maize from Gristede's for a Corn Maiden effect (sorry for stepping on any corn toes out there...)

Word on the street is that pink is the new black, up is the new down, and beginning is the new end.

Speaking of, off I hither to NIPS...

SHEEZIT, dubzy, next time you MUST TELL THE SLOTH!! You know I would crawl 10 miles over broken glass to hear your gorgeous pipes...

yeah, that's delilah-man, the multi-faceted Dr. Gustave Hurtz. Ain't he cute?

The end of a Lesion era. I remember the early days when they had a female bass player. Some of their memorable tracks included "Certified Medical Illustrator," "Amputee Coworker" which segued beautifuly into "Stump Love," and finaly one of my favorite of their songs, "I'm GOD!"

hi peeds! yeah, the dreaded day is almost over thank god.

Corn Maiden is an okay costume, but nothing will ever equal FB's gym teacher brilliance last year.

You look great as a corn maiden, much cornier then I could ever hope to be but where is the box of butter on your chest that flips up to reveil the the Knee-tits?

i know, slothy. i am humbled but will try again. maybe tiny dancer?

Dubz, if you sing Tiny Dancer, I will sing the saddest EJ song ever (which is not I'm still standing by the way.) It's Daniel. Then we can hold each other and wipe back the tears.

tears of laughter, that is.

can't wait.

What? Couldn't do Philadelphia Freedom? I am so disappointed Dubz. Reasons why:

1. The song is dedicated to Billie Jean King
2. I am from Philly
3. You are Elton

i dunno peeds. it was just too hard. i fucked it up. god, it was awful.

krixy, you do daniel... tiny dancer's not sad enough. howsabouts i bring us back from tears with burn down the mission? or somethin?

hi dubz. do you need an 'oke intervention? Now you "just happen" to be eating dinner at that Thai place next to winnies, what a coincidence! Methinks this is getting out of hand. And look what happened, you got spanked by the Oke! It's not all highs my friend, there are prices to pay

too true Corny. First you're riding the high, then you're breaking into Winnie's after hours, then the police are dragging you out, hogtied with the microphone cord. I've seen it. It's not pretty.

corny i got back on that oke horse and rode that motherfucker into the sunset ok? i immediately fought back with some steely dan. then i finished off with ventura highway by america. i think a few people managed to stay awake.

Hi, off-topic I know, but I'm bringing a group of NIPS inmates to NYC on Saturday for a gallery-crawl and studio visit with a certain paintrix. Anywho, I'm looking for some good shows for to fertilize their lil minds with. I know Lisa Yuskavage will be up at Zwirner... anyone have any other suggestions? xoxo

is the fred tomaselli still up at Cohan? there's more that i am overdue to see. let me think...

Oh, that's a must-see... thanks, fb!

I'm back at Log early this week; a fire in the NIPS basement yesterday closed the school down for 2 days. Sprinklers went off and they have to be re-set, so the building is off-limits to inmates and staff. It feels weird to be here on a Tuesday, but I'll make the best of it... s'posed to be 70° and sunny today.

I hope you get to bask in the garden today, fairy.
