I Will Not Defame New Orleans.

Why Do We Do These Things?

I've been quizzered by me bio-mum in Seattle! Mommy, make it stop! It burns!
  1. WHAT TIME DO YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? N/A. I live life as a series of three hour catnaps.
  2. IF YOU COULD EAT LUNCH WITH ONE FAMOUS PERSON, WHO WOULD IT BE? Stephen Hawking — just because I want to see how he would eat lunch.
  3. GOLD OR SILVER? There is never a place for gold.
  4. WHAT WAS THE LAST FILM YOU SAW AT THE CINEMA? "Blue Crush" or "Wet Crush" or whatever it was called. My extended family dragged me to the lesbian Hawaian surfer movie this summer. It was … "greeeeat."
  5. FAVORITE TV SHOW? Don't watch TV. But my friend Gingi in NY sent me the first season League of Gentlemen on DVD. That was pretty darn good.
  6. WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST? Look around. Help yourself. I'm going back to bed.
  7. WHO WOULD YOU HATE TO BE LEFT IN A ROOM WITH? Some drunk person with halitosis who wants to let me know every four seconds how much they "love me, maaaaan!" Oh wait, that happens every night!
  8. CAN YOU TOUCH YOUR NOSE WITH YOUR TONGUE? Is this a sex thing? I can tie a knot in a cherry stem with my tongue. That should answer the question.
  9. WHAT INSPIRES YOU? A gun to the head.
  10. WHAT'S YOUR MIDDLE NAME? "El Hombre!"
  11. BEACH, CITY, Or COUNTRY? City, with access to the other two.
  12. SUMMER OR WINTER? Summer in Upstate NY, the rest of the year in New Orleans.
  13. FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Not a big fan. All that lactose. "You know."
  14. BUTTERED, SALTED OR PLAIN POPCORN? Air-popped with cayenne pepper and brewer's yeast. Good way to lose five pounds in one week.
  15. FAVORITE COLOR? My favorite color is two that clash.
  16. FAVORITE CAR? That 1940's green thing two blocks from my house that I pass and covet every night on my way to work.
  17. FAVORITE SANDWICH FILLING? I can't think of a more boring, less insightful question.
  18. TRUE LOVE? It's Just Not Worth It!
  19. WHAT CHARACTERISTICS DO YOU DESPISE? Self-righteousness, bad hygiene, stupidity, and people who are audacious enough to be taller than I.
  20. FAVORITE FLOWER? Why, PANSIES, of course!
  21. WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAD A BIG WIN IN THE LOTTERY? Probably go on living just as I am now.
  22. FIZZY OR STILL WATER AS A DRINK? Seltzer with a splash of fresh lemon is good for hangovers.
  23. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR BATHROOM? My bathroom is wallpapered in old Playboy Magazine covers with a stack of them next to the sink. People don't come out for hours!
  24. HOW MANY KEYS ON YOUR KEY RING? 2: House and bike lock. I've never had fewer, and never been happier.
  26. CAN YOU JUGGLE? IF YES HOW MANY? Things, no. Tasks and people, yes.
  27. FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK? Wednesday Punk Rock Karaoke is pretty fun. You should come.
  28. RED OR WHITE WINE? It's not the color of the wine, but the size of the glass.
  29. WHAT DID YOU DO FOR YOUR LAST BIRTHDAY? Threw a pajama party at work that lasted two days, then took two weeks to recover from it.

Time To Shop My Ahhhhht…

Well, that was a long show! In May I was asked by the 735 Club if they could exhibit my paintings. Seeing as I hadn't rehung everything in my house after my last show, and didn't have anything else lined up (lazy buns!), I said Sho 'Nuff.

"We'd like the show to run a month."

Good peeps at the ole' 735. Me like 'um heap big. I'm happy to be involved.

Well, May turned to June, June to July, and July (you'll never guess!) turned to August. Etc., etc.

Finally, mid-October, they've taken down my stuff in preparation for a new show.

Which means, of course, that I need another gallery.

Anyone out there with a suitable space or a contact/fuckbuddy curator friend wanna speak up? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
