Rasslin' the Rascally Beasties Painting DAY TWO


Tillerson called the idiot a moron and my spirits are up!

why that is, I cannot say because next at bat would be nikky hailey and she is loving the trumpian stepping stone to gale carnegie type diplomatic success and making a name for herself. so far, she's the yes girl. 

anyway, still don't have on the news so I got into the studio early which is good because the coffee is still surging through my veins and the energy is high.  this painting feels right in…

Rasslin' the Beasties!

So a few months back I wrote a post where I whined and complained bitterly about a painting I was going to tackle because my BFF asked me to do it AND there's no saying "no" to the BFF which might explain why the exhusband found sanity, sobriety and a lifetime married to her - she will have what she will have and that is that, end of story.

but damn if I wasn't…

Throwing in the towel

PIllars of Creation*

I have to check out of politics for a while. maybe I'll write bad poetry or even worse prose. Every day it gets harder and harder to see the world fall apart and I cant stand it anymore.

single payer in the time of the idiot

so we have come to the point where the idiot is so desperate to sign SOMEthing, ANYthing meaningful and really real and legislative, something that smacks of law, something beside his executive orders, elaborately finished with his giant signature (which seems to me anyway, to be getting bigger and BIGGER as time duly marches on) (a signature which one might liken to a large hunk of wilted parsley on a really shitty sandwich in a really shitty restaurant), that it's possible any bill that…

The W.C. Fields School of Television Journalism

I emailed one network to tell them watching their reporting this week was so ridiculous it reminded me of every comedy skit where a storm is depicted by someone off stage flinging heaping buckets of water or snow at a person onstage.  

the storm coverage went from heroic during harvey to idiotic during irma.  apparently there was no news…

in defense of melania

shoes?  really?  we're talking about her shoes and hats?

so lets play LIMBO - and see - how LOW can you go?  apparently, no depths are too low to plunder, particularly when it comes to women.  FACT - she is not the president.  she's just the lady wearing the haute couture. 

the fact that she manned up and accompanied her husband to a disaster area in the midst of a mega storm eludes.  I'm not going to dump on prior first women because before Melania first ladies…

poor sad "violent" nazi guy

is this the same guy?    Mr. "“I'm carrying a pistol, I go to the gym all the time, I'm trying to make myself more capable of violence.”?

doesn't he want to try out his well honed testosterone and muscle with some down and dirty in your face, pol-icey violence?

rebranding Nazis & Racists as "ALT RIGHT" = rebranding Rape as "ALT SEX"

marketing at it's worst - making the lowest of the low palatable.

the good, the bad and the fucking ugly

I mentioned in amy's blog that right now I'm totally self involved and yes I am and it feels farking good.  I'm painting again - had stopped really putting aside time for it for a few years - packed up a house, broke myself doing that and other things, then unpacked a house and gradually started feeling an awful lot of pain because there's nothing quite like being an old lady getting thrown around by a horse or two and then falling off ladders and landing on radiators plus having a history…

Art and ROSIGAMI and her Great Doodle Project

(or working it until there's nothing left to be said)

Some time back, the lovely Rosigami, artist extraordinaire asked for volunteers to doodle on some coasters she had penciled guidelines so we'd fill in the areas as we liked and they could all be put together into one giant collective image of a Picasso bull.   As the project moved along I asked if she needed more done because I was enjoying the way I worked when I did them.  It brought me back to something I've often fallen into…

LIVE BLOGGING: America going ballistic

Our presidental cartoon figure is on tv right now, carefully reading his teleprompter.  What he's saying goes in one ear and out the other - it sounds like it's being read on the "moron" setting of google voice - I hear the word "fantastic" during this statement and I'm not at all surprised.  just further saddened that this is what speaks for america.

God bless them all.  God bless you.  God bless America.  jeeze louise, he sounds sedated.

What happened out…

DEAD BLOGGING: the elfen AG speaks!

I'm in such a lousy mood.  I watched that first cabinet meeting and I can't help but feel our national self esteem is at an all time low if there are even ten people in this country who don't want to get out the pitchforks and torches and storm that white house!!

I HATE THEM.  the world watches and laughs at our clown president and at us for electing him.   we have a tinpot dictator, not much different from the tinpot dictator in north korea.  lots of happy happy/joy joy - may you…

LIVE BLOGGING: our Global Village Idiot Dances a Quick Step For the Press

As Comey had his say, so shall the First Dipshit.

I'll work hard to keep up but I'd advise you, if you've got a TV close by to turn it on and catch the nuance. 

He's not especially subtle or nuanced, but he's dumb as a stump and wont to saying something so ridiculously self incriminating, your mouth drops open and while you gather your druthers, he says something entirely contradictory!…

LIVE BLOGGING: Hoping Comey Can Save America From The Crazy King DAY!!

First up - I need to say I am not particularly fond of Brian Williams and his smarmy lying self.  I don't know why he's on MSNBC but he is and because he is, we have to swallow our bile and tolerate this relentless instruction as he narrates to us - calling down to the great unwashed from his high up in the media clouds pedestal.

okay.  that's done.

Ya'll (love the poorly chosen new…

deposit returned! :::FIST BUMP:::

Got a call from the AG's office yesterday, asking if I had received a check yet.  It was next explained that she spoke with Sotheby's RE office last week and they said they were sending - via certified mail - a return of our deposit of $1000, which in fact they did.

My buyer agent contacted me last week mentioning he had gotten a call from the seller agent who said he never advised his client (after he had told my agent months ago he had ) to not sign off on returning our…
