"I'm a slacker wandering through the streets, and from my buzz I don't know anybody; from my buzz I can't get my mind straight, I'm a slacker wandering through the streets" - Márkos Vamvakáris (from old Greek Rembetika song called " Alaniáris" (thanks DAR!)
"Not for P.M."
Ode to a College Girl
The sight of your thong above your designer jeans makes me sick
Your lower back tattoo might as well spell out "I'm an imaginationless lemur"
The conversation you're having on your cell is as dull as the music on you ipod
Your boyfriend gives away his homosexual tendencies by the posters of male athletes on his wall
Half his frat brothers want to fuck you the other half him
He likes it when you wear sweats and flip flops because his friend Kevin does too
Speaking of your sweats and flip flops - fuck off.

My friend Priya just got back from
India where she took this photo.
She noticed the resemblance and was right on the money! It's my half-brother Karl!
Karl, call Mom. She's worried sick about you.

There are times when one can't help but ooze pretension - like this past week - I was compelled to not only mourn the loss of Jean Baudrillard (though maybe the simulation will proceed more smoothly now?) but I was also neck deep in curating an art show. In other words (said with highly affected self-important voice) I'm sorry for being so busy pondering a high brow left field PoMo French philosopher while curating my own show featuring cutting edge digital art. In other words, what have you poor slobs been doing? Eating McDonalds in front of the tube watching American Idol or NASCAR? Chuckle chuckle chuckle. I'm sooooooooo special!
Anyway, things look nice. There were some inspiring studio performances. "My Dear Disco" is a great band to see either in a video studio or a sleazy club and last night shenanigans.tv put on an awesome video/performance/music extravaganza. Glad to be a part of it all.
We will resume our usual nonsensical programming this week.
The Robot finally gets his moment in the sun.
(Glass case is to protect patrons not sculpture)
My Dear Disco rocks the performance space.

Good news. It looks like we won't have to wait too much longer for another mass kool-aid party or a burning compound to roast weenies in. This here snazzy dresser says he be Jebus:
O you followers of Truth! Do not be decieved by others. Inwardly or outwardly, if you encounter any obstacles, kill them right away. If you meet the Buddha, kill him! Do not get yourself entangled with any object, but stand above, pass on and be free!
My friend David is reading the Icelandic language version of The Lord of the Rings. Meanwhile I've been having trouble making it through the funny pages lately.
As most know, it's real hard to make a living as an artist. I'm keen on diversification as a way to make ends meet. Lately I've been doing some free-lance writing developing marriage vows for people. Here's a random sampling. (my rates are very reasonable!)
I swear I won't ever do anything to ruin your dining experience
I won't laugh too boisterously or critique your make-up
I shan't pinch the waiter's ass or hit on your mom while you're in the loo
or breathe garlic in your boss's face while telling a dirty joke
If we have children together I shan't kill them or conspire with them against you
No actual registered poisons shall ever pass between us
I won't dance on your grave
If we ever have sex on tape I'll try my best for your father not to see it but I can't promise it will never be on the internet
Even if it's true I will never say or imply in front of your friends that you suck in bed
I shall never throw your belongings out the window or change the locks while you're gone unless a restraining order calls for it
I won't try too hard to change your taste in music
I promise never to refer to you as my "significant other" except in moments of self-conscious irony

We in no way, shape or form condone the message contained in this photo sent to us by "Timmy K"
Sorry for the lapse. We've been suffering through a self-inflicted technological gun shot to the foot.
Maybe this stellar piece of filmmaking will make up for it -
