YOUR OLD MAN'S CADDY


can't go wrong with 24k gold cadillac keys to make earings out of. just get the pliers. Brando gave them to me after I expressed how badly I wanted them when I found them with his owner's manual this summer. He said he was gonna file them down cuz he could see me getting talked into stealing his car, but he trusts me. MAAAAAAAH so cool. they heavy tho.

Hope

Obama promises strong arts policy:

Barack Obama has issued a comprehensive statement in support of arts and arts education in the United States.

His campaign position focuses on nine points: Reinvesting in arts education, expanding public grants for arts education, publicly championing arts education, creating an artist corps, increasing funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, promoting cultural diplomacy, providing health care for artists and ensuring tax fairness for artists.



This was an article from artthreat.net from February 2008. It's all words and promises now, but at least we have a president who is interested in art and culture . . .

CocoRosie


Now that I'm alone I feel the lonely brokenness
Of all the wicked avenues I've ever sold my love on
All these moments of meekness and trembling subsided
I'm the outright abandon of this orphan child
Home is on the highway living on soft bread and solace
I guess I'm waiting for nightfall or a solar eclipse
And to wake up half empty
Only to be filled again with mourning

He's my evil shadow dove
My black Palamito
Can't break him like a diamond skull
I can't seem to do so
Can't just rob him out like the
Mob used to do so
Like memories of porno and tearstains
And tobacco O it's a mini disastro
Bigger than the ice age don't know if baby dinosaurs
Maybe could live through it, like Indians and butterflies
What's crushed is my spirit, Oh I fear it is too fragile
Like fall leaves burn like paper
I always knew I would spend a lot of time alone

No one would understand me
Maybe I should go and live amongst the animals
Spend all my time amongst the animals
And on the tracks I would go they lead to the sea
To be amongst the animals
Oh I'm just a fall leaf something simple and shy like that
That's how my heart lies down beside the sidewalk
Like an empty restaurant filled with perfume and balloons
I sit and entertain the bisarro ghosts of my soul
His name still lingers maybe lactates on my tongue
Perhaps I'm just teething for a foreign fallen destiny
Miserable but mine, I look like his mother
Or Sophia Loren in an old fashioned movie
Slow motion I cling to my child desperate for love
One day soon my brother died, made me remember all the
Subordinate feelings I cast aside
Maybe I had lied when I said I was ok
Just getting along like a little song that stops to sing and say
"Wild willow, windy winter won't you blow through me
My whole eternity"

WAI LIN TSE

speaking of night swimming and dreaming, I love the feeling I get when I look at Wai Lin Tse's photographs and I think about secrets.

Red Tide

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR. i think 2009 is going to be a lot better than 2008. i really like odd years, i was one for 2005 and 2007, so we'll see where this year takes me. oh, to be 19 again. i always hear songs about being 17, but i really liked being 19. anyways, i'm also one for night swimming and dreaming. and red tide. red tide is beautiful at night. i know red tide kills a lot of animals and creatures, but there's something about the crashing waves glowing in the dark, and the sand sparking light when you jump on it. red tide is a phenomenon thats cause is unknown. however,we did have a red tide summer of 2005 in southern cal. CHEERS, to odd years, to being 17, 19, and 21, and to red tide ... just as good as new years eve fireworks. i hope to be able to see it again in my lifetime.
