Fakes, frauds, and grifters

I’m not gonna call anyone out by name, so we’ll just say “Z” for the apparent generation of the one who inspired this rant. Z is a video content creator. Nothing wrong with that. Z tells people she’s an artist. And she paints, so sure. OK. Z seems to...

New shade tree, new fountain, new comics, etc.

Finally getting the summer heat, meaning I’m on daily watering duty now. I did get a tree planted a week or so ago. I think in the last blog post I had just planted a baby silk tree, but I decided to move it to a new spot closer...

Properly introducing Noah, plus some tree planting

Well, when I last wrote I still had a hoarse voice from being sick, but that has now gone back to normal, so come Monday morning I’ll be back at it for The Nick White Show. About all I did for Nick this week was write a couple short...

Sickness and the start of that leprechaun sculpt

Well, I guess the short version of the blog is “I got sick and did nothing all week other than cough and complain.” But that’s not quite true, of course. I came down with flu-like symptoms on Sunday afternoon which got worse through Monday. Tuesday I woke about 30%...

Tree plans and not-yet-organized chaos

Almost forgot the Saturday blog… it’ll be a short one this week. The heat has arrived and that means watering duty is back. My dad’s been helping me rip out weeds, but there is definitely a need for me to get on track with laying down cardboard and mulch...

Back to our regularly scheduled Saturday random updates blog

Which I meant to start up again last week but got sidetracked. Whatever. Woke up with this song in my head: Which in a way fits what’s been going on, except it’s all old shit when you consider that I’ve decided to just focus on painting and that goes...

Lame “important” art vs. fun fan art

So, I saw a FB post from an art magazine showing some installation where someone (presumably a humorless art school prig, though I know my first reaction was to burst out laughing) printed a bunch of blah blah blah slogans about barriers and inclusion in foundation year of art...

Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Marilyn Manson set list 1995

I mentioned the story of this early Marilyn Manson show I went to in 1995 and the poster I got and got a couple signatures on. Here’s the set list I got at the same show. It was at guitarist Daisy Berkowitz’s spot on stage and that would be...

Ch-ch-changes… probably…

So, the flower headers are gone, replaced with some random pics from my rock memorabilia collections. Seems to me when I updated the blog in 2020 and I was painting more, the headers were my art. Then in 2021 I swapped it to my garden as I tried to...
