sugar smackdown

I am suited up and ready to duel; the weapons-grade Viewmaster® has come out of storage, along with my joystick-controlled Tank Chair. Clipper will be MINE.

log decor

I need these paintings for the log... they are in somebody else's house, but maybe Deiter could liberate them for me.

rockit from the crypt

You know lil' Slothy likes to drive... well today I was jet-propelled homeward from the frozen Beansicle, rackety musix blaring, ice crystals all a-clinky in m'beard. Yep, I have grown a long, taliban-style "face bush" as an homage to MM, but of course it's a pale imitation; masters of the follicular arts are born, not made.

Adding extra machs to my blowhole was the dangling carrot known as Skylab, DJ Dekker's weekly gig Thursday nights at Sputnik! Come & help spread the practice of AdHocism.

frosted danish

Click here to see a discussion of the source images for John Currin's recent porn paintings. I'm fascinated by the places where the paintings are different from the photos.

Also have been thinking about Currin vs. Lisa Yuskavage... in discussions with painter-friends, LY's work has been characterized as "misogynist" and "self-loathing," while Currin has been characterized as "self-mocking." ...this was also my reaction to their respective shows. But if their genders were switched, would the perception of their work be different? I'm trying to figure out where Yuskavage's anger is being expressed, vs. Currin's humor...
