Christmas thoughts 2023 December 16

I have a backlog of painting requests but am slowly remembering them….please email me if you want to see if I’m alive…and if you still want your request..I appreciate them all….

happy holiday..

im not on instagram….never had twitter…..I was on Facebook long enough to get death threats ,so I deleted it..I’ve never used ‘lol’…..if you use ‘lol’ I’ll be inclined to not talk to you again..

I favor the Jews…they make great Bagels…Dylan is a Jew…maybe in name only…he made a Christian album….Jesus was a Jew…..Raquel Welch was in the Jewish army…

In 4 or 5 years American Pro football will only be played online…as a video game…but you will still be able to bet on it….Sports Betting is the permanent social crack….The NY Giants will still suck even as a digital only team..don’t get all dreamy just because they won last week…

The Grateful Dead …. I made a Jerry Garcia pillow and 2 Jerry Garcia coffee cups…I can’t sell them because they will sue me…

What did Timex say to Rolex…?…hey buddy, got a minute..?

Reborn or just less lazy…nov 11, 2023

It’s November….after that big art show a few weeks ago, I was knackered…out…still am..

I know some people believe that I paint everyday and take great joy in it….and am constantly shipping off stuff..

I wish  that was true…..I’m just tired….I paint but in spells…I feel that maybe a new spell is comin on…

I know a lot of you get disgusted with me…I’m sorry..but I can paint good when my mind lets me..and my body is willing .

my dog Kenny has diabetes now and I have to feed him some special food and give him an insulin shot at 5 am and 5 pm…it’s no fun for either of us ….he’s not looking much better..can you imaging me giving you a shot with a needle, twice a day..?……..

how about the Alabama LSU game …?…talk about a low life…Alabama scum….they  sent big number 15 in to hurt or incapacitate the LSU quarterback……I hope they are happy….the poor guy’s  in the hospital with a brain injury and probably will never play again,..way to go Alabama….true sportsmen, you are..

 

If you can find a Los Apson cd…or better yet….a cassette tape….get one….they were great..they sang top 40 songs but in Spanish….but still somehow made them rhyme….which is not easy when you think about it..

Movin on…… like Hank Snow

Thank you all for a tremendous art show in Oxford last week….!,..I’m still tired from it….in a , you know, good way..
tonight i’m rewatching William Hurt in Moby Dick on Prime…he’s very good in it… the whole movie is great…!!….very good.!!.

all I brought home from the art show was a bob Dylan and a Churchill downs… I really like the Churchill downs  and it got no attention at all…none….. C’est la guerre….

I might do the show again next year…if

a. I am still alive.

b. I can think of anything new to paint , that people might want..I’ve painted for show and I’ve painted for dough…. the secret lies somewhere in between.

the Lowly Jets  beat the Giants today…the Giants should just quit…

NYC has the worst sports teams in the USA…

The worst airport.

the worst traffic….

they do have good hot dogs…I wish Memphis had a good Jew deli…I’d go there everyday..

shot or not shot , I’d go…

tip to Eli and Peyton,… if you’re gonna do Monday night football on TV, get a makeup person to fix you guys up… you both have 6 tones of flesh color from bright pink to a languid yellow… and get some hip looking clothes…you look like old Polaroid photos from 1964….

and set out a couple of tall cans of beer, for atmosphere, like Dizzy Dean  and PeeWee Reese did on baseball broadcasts…

you both look like 2 guys just in town from Indianapolis for the weekend..instead of sports legends..

Spruce it up some…,!…do some online betting, live on tv..!

and there’s no need to regale us with long tales , spoken thru a whole series of downs, that go nowhere ….just use ‘well, that sucked’ a lot…to describe unfortunate play calls.  people will like that…

a little set design couldn’t hurt either..

just sayin,,,..

Oxford motel art show oct 21 2023

here’s just a few things of the many that I’m bringing..I make really bad photos..I think these are all 16 x20 framed art boards, so they are about 20 x 22 framed. The numbers are mostly rubbed off on my yardstick.


I’ll be there with a lot of new paintings….

you might like them , you might not…I used to do the show every year but I got tired..

im having to rent an Uber Bus to get me there this year , it has a bed and bathroom in it.

Each  artist has their own room….they can decorate them…each room has a bathroom too…and a bed and a tv,,these are real motel rooms. .. Bukowski would have stayed at this motel..

I usually  just buy an old chenille bedspread to put over the bed in my room, because if you even touch the bedspread that’s there in those rooms, you could get any disease known to man…!

there will be other artists too..  I’m not sure what all they do..there’s like 10 or 12 rooms with a different artist in every room..in my room you get a  beer with every purchase….offer good until supplies run out.

Taylor  Swift is set to be in my booth , signing things, etc…..hanging etc….please do not bother, bug or become a pest ..

refreshments and finger food in the parking lot….

Art show starts at 5pm and I’ll be there there from then till about 8 pm then I gotta get back on the Uber Bus..

I can take ….cash or Venmo or PayPal….if you want to buy something..

if I can’t sell anything , I’ll just walk home.

there is no home football game this weekend so don’t worry about giant awful smelly crowds…of UT or State  fans….

I don’t have any channels to watch college football on…I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict That I don’t have any idea who will win…..probably Georgia….Trump might end up as their   Coach…

It’s summer 2023

Jackson square… New Orleans..

I am painting about a million paintings of, for now, old blues guys…they make me happy…

I have maybe a dozen done , shooting for 100…maybe not all blues guys…

my yard sale plans are now for mid October..weather then is generally real good here..in Memphis.

and as far as I know I will be in Oxford, ms for the motel art show in October too..I used to be very popular there but times change…don’t they.?

tv viewing…I watched the BBC tv show Celebrity Antiques Road Trip…I think I watched it for  a whole week..

im watching Mrs Maisel , now ,a lot…great dialogue , sets and characters…I love shows about New York Jews,,,

I’m looking for a place to play my music….locally…in places that are unlikely to be shot up …if any exist…bring back Amy Weirich… !… Old 60s songs..some Dead stuff…lots of Dylan..and if nobody is there just play Django instrumentals…I play 2 hours… that’s enough for me..all this business of the 4 hour gig needs to get somewhere..!…
