To Be Continued

...continues in Book Four.

Honey, You Look A Bit Distant Today

Beautiful evening gown or straight jacket? Glass half-full or half-empty? There are answers.


And the answers are as playful as they are heartbreaking dependent upon the context you bring into Lisa Rae Winant world. Winant of New Hampshire says of her portraits, "...the human characters seem indifferent to their presence. They are preoccupied with deeper matters of heart and mind." Really? I thought it was me.

Winant's paintings are like single-cell motion pictures played in an empty theater. On a Tuesday afternoon. She depicts only the bare necessities of form, scene, and character. Unfortunately for me Mind Less #2 (pictured) is sold. Else, I couldn't afford it.

Signs of Intelligent Life

Humans have been looking for signs of alien life since like forever. We've evolved into calling it "intelligent life." We imagine what it would look, sound like, and feel like. In the movies our poor, rural galaxy cousins usually look a lot like us, and speak better English than we do. But, sometimes, like car keys or sunglasses, we're just looking in the wrong place. Sofa cushions.


It was under the sofa cushions! I don't know what to call it but Jamie Guggino calls it Awkwardist text and here it is for hours and days and eons of your enjoyment, pleasure, and bafflement. Stop judging.

Jamie's St. Ætheldrytha's weaker (?) blog is brimming with years of...years of, uh... Well, if you figure it out, send me a note because I have no damn idea (and I know him).

Here's an obligatory post sample:

Obsession w/These

I Know

The one thing I'll always remember from my visit to Iceland was that for my entire stay it was forty degrees with a steady wind of around 20 miles per hour.

The flagpoles went: ching-ching-ching all day long.
Today is like that: ching-ching-ching.
Modesty is the
The anchor opposite of
Loathful insanity

That baby broke my focus
Damn baby!
Miniaturization of humankind
[What are you looking at, baby?!]

I know.
Getting nothing yet?
Focus & Concentration
Closing of the eyes...

I don't really mind some aspects of artistic celibacy.

A shop on the corner
The beauty of middle age
A shot of caffeine
To steady the nerves

Only if people were tiny figurines of scale.
It's an exercise
Conquest of agility
For the brain, you know?

I Know!

When sitting feels like sinking...or shrinking

Dudes with arty, overly affected scarves and ambitious facial hair.

Strutting with the confidence of Russian whores at Lutheran retreats.

Buy Buy Buy
Until I'm in the sky
[You make me fucking crazy!]

It's nearly the dead of winter
Flies mean maggots
Maggots = death
Like Bush = lies

I know.
