That's Halloweenie playing. (Dan/Mike 1'42)

10.31.09 Monsters

10.29.09 Table series:

Ove reports some truth from the West Coast:

I'd begin with the meal, if it weren't for dessert.
I wouldn't mind pain, if it just didn't hurt.
I'd gamble my all, if I'd find a sure bet,
And wouldn't mind water, if it weren't so wet.
_

Embracing the present,
I'm facing the future
At peace.

Should that ride be unpleasant,
I'll squeeze into Heaven
With grease.
_

Some decades ago, we went with the flow
And still we don't know where it went.
We followed each trend to the trickling end
Paying NO mind to what would be spent.
_

Our time's running short with irate Mother Nature
By those who think humans could own it.
The profits of poison could cost us our future,
And maybe the world as we've known it.
_

Don't wear a dress on your climb to success;
You'd most likely advance if you're armored with pants.
_

We mention the "skies"
When there only is ONE.
The sun doesn't "rise"
And still waters don't RUN.
_

As Noah prepared to embark,
Two termites ate holes in the Ark.
_

Gather your rosebuds as you may,
But remember they'll tax you for every bouquet.
_

The truth sets us free,
But consider the fee.
_

Freedom of choice isn't death or adoption.
Amend an agenda; opt in for an option.

10.27.09 Too T's.

A portrait by the Fauve Jawlensky:

10.25.09 Zeepo and Mike made a Halloweenie.

10.24.09

10.23.09 Painting.

10.22.09 Buddy in the house. Tommy's old cat.

10.21.09 Cool picture of John Connell working by Charles Rushton from his Aritists Series.

10.20.09 Day of O-VEE-O.

A question that plagued a logologist,
An embarrassed and sorry apologist:
"Could you rhyme the words 'bird-watching?'"
"Well, I've tried 'word botching,'"
Answered a famed "orthinologist."

A note to myself on Dylan interpretations:

Here's hoping a verbal defacement
Won't become an accepted replacement.
A license? Poetic?
The nerve. How pathetic!
What "meds" do you mix in that basement?

("Johnny's in the basement, mixing up the medicine...")

10.19.09 Big new canvas. Washed the dog hair off.

Agnes Martin's paintings are dreamy.

10.18.09 Nada. Four day Nor'easter. Ann's sleepy too.

10.17.09 Buzzards circling for the feast.

10.16.09 All death and destruction this week. Out front:

Maybe Damian Hirst followed us home from the museum.

Damien

10.15.09 The Table series continues.

Guess who from California:

WE CAN

To dwell on a negative facet
Overcomes the desire to pass it.
Take heart in asserting
The art of converting
A deficit into an asset.

10.14.09 Grey around here.

Some Ove to lift the spirits:

A FUMER'S REMORSE

He made his addiction debut
When it wasn't a social taboo.
Though he's only half joking,
He swears he'll quit smoking,
If that's the last thing he will do.

Things stalled for Mark El, he was judged fit to stand trial. It never ends.

10.13.09 We all have our fingers crossed about the hearing today Mark Elliot. If all goes well today things should begin to change for the better. Stay strong.

Piano by Mark Elliot Loesch

10.12.09 We checked out Drexel University yesterday with Max and ended up in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Blown away by the amazingly great paintings there of Maurice de Vlaminck.

10.10.09 The artist John Connell (wiki) was a very close friend of Jean and Hak for decades and had visited Toopine a few years back. We discussed mixed media enthusiastically and I really liked the guy. He died recently and is going to be missed by all who knew him. (more)

'Buddha', wood, wire, paper, tar by John Connell, 1990

10.9.09 Allison and Dan's son Max is being recruited by Princeton University and he and Dan will be here for the weekend.

From the big O: "One for my book 'Verboddities'":

refused rejection letter, dated March 21, 1988:

Dear Professor ________:

Thank you for your letter of March 16. After careful consideration,
I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me an assistant professor position in your department.

This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.

Despite (University name)'s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at this time. Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.

Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.

10.8.09 Hairy dogs, hairballs.

10.7.09 Let's have an Ove for brunch. Ooooveee.

A CERTAIN CRITIC

A spin master, if you mean whizzery,
And cutting edge, if you mean scizzory.
He's wretched and ruthless.
He'll bite 'til he's toothless.
Please put that man out of my misery.

Watch the bananas brown. The Table series marches on.

10.6.09 Knocked myself out with a sleeping pill and had eight hours of dreamless sleep. Weird but it worked. I think that it was getting the Mark El date right that helped most.

10.5.09 No sleep in four days (too much merde in the head). It is hard being human. Mark El trial this week.

10.3.09 Morning and paint beckons but ...we'll see.

Hit the Book Garden (giant shed of used books back in New Egypt) and got a treasure trove of great stuff for $6. I really love that place- even the smell is magical. T:

10.2.09 Mike Geer and the kids in Austin. Geer.

Scenes from the studio- Aloof Man, Metty and the Monster DVD and Mozart.

10.1.09 A fresh one from the famous O hear Ove sing

Regarding show business:

BREAKING IN

With no sign of "Welcome," nor mat,
The front door is locked--that is that.
Make an alternate entry,
Outwitting the sentry.
You'll have to squeeze in like a rat.

Near frost last night- the heat came on.
