We're pleased to report that the forces of Satan are holding their own in Paris. Even the relative proximity of The Vatican cannot quell the spread of Nature's pure tentacles into the heart of the city.

But our comrades have suffered numerous losses at the Euro Disney front. Casualties are high as McMickey and his armies make raids into the country side.

$8 dollar cups of coffee bolstered our spirits and we held ground.

The twin pillars of intellect and debauchery are intact.

Behind glass.
A heavy wood table in front of that.
A rope.
A guard.

All that's needed now is an oxygen tank.

A hermetically sealed chamber where visitors look through a periscope to glimpse the painting that everyone HAS to see.

Probably just me.....but that smirk on her face looks a lot like disdain.

Museums are the graveyard of art.


I enjoy life more than you.

There, I said it.

Okay, actually there's a decent chance that we enjoy it the same or you much more than me.

I opened with such brazen talk to get it across that I am indeed one of those happy-go-lucky types. Which, if you think about it, is no small feat for a raging misanthropic nihilist. In other words I'm a momentalist. See me? I'm there. An in-the-moment kind of dude. In other words - Paris, France or London, Kentucky I'm here to have a laugh and a deep moment or two.

But my elitist point is to discuss how books can ruin you or maybe it's mass-culture's fault. Who knows.

Who cares?

I dunno.

The question being can an over-intellectualized outsider artist enjoy Paris? Enjoy it proper the way mom and dad do or a fresh pair of new lovers on a spring day?

Maybe. Maybe not.

Sure I can. Even as Baudrillard's ghost is whispering in my ear prejudicing me aforehand concerning Centre Pompidou and Beaubourgian things that I only vaguely understand.

But enough to make me cringe at Awful Tower trinkets and Lourve Lizards.

Mostly I kind of stumbled around wondering is any of this real?



right now 10:18 GMT.....reporting continues shortly.

If you're around please stop by Friday June 20th around 7pm at The Belgian Cafe in Ramsgate, Kent, UK

It's close to the sea right across from the recently shuttered casino.

Someone informed me it's going to be the soltice so you've got plenty of daylight.

Come see this new painting "The Child Artist" as well as other new stuff.

escapism via sketchbook continues



We haven't talked about the Vatican-Declared-War-On-Satan for a while because events have been happening too fast and well, loose lips sink ships. But we need to head off to Paris for a couple days to meet up with resistance fighters there. Sure, most of them surrendered right away and saved their skins by becoming practicing catholics but a small band have held their ground and we need to swap intelligence and deliver critical supplies like a crate of sterling silver pentagram necklaces and some bootleg King Diamond cds.

Speaking of which - "strict and particular" - we wouldn't have our god any other way!


Okay, back in a few days.
