Grunge tales of debauchery...

Walked into the Mecca one night for a pint. Our friend
C. was dosed on A, had a painted blue, smurf face
and had just apparently walked back from The Seattle Center,
where he had been lurking around in the trees, frightening tourists.

We saw many free shows at the Paramount in the 80’s – 90’s thanks to our “hommies” who worked as ushers. Most memorable show was the L7 show, where an antarage of long-haired boys in babydoll dresses, came out and danced around. Did I mention
that I love a boy in a dress?

The Tower is deemed the oldest, tallest building in Seattle. While in Art School, my roommate Ms. Slayer, a heavy metal queen, happened to work as an elevator operator there. One forth of July, after a big keg party at our house, we all were invited to the top deck for fireworks viewing. Unfortunately, the elevators were broken and Ms. Slayer’s manager told her she needed to help operate the existing, operational elevator. Although dressed in a leather micro-mini, spiked jacket & thigh-high boots, she obliged. The view at the top deck was fantastic! We could see both the Elliott Bay & Lake Union Fireworks simutaniously. The bar was closed, but someone had left a 1/2 gallon of Jose Cuervo Gold out for us, so we thought...We finished it off and ran down at least 18 of the 21 flights of stairs.

No Logo - Sao Paulo, Brazil !

A "clean law" passed last year that has stripped the city of all advertising. I stumbled upon an article about Tony De Marco, who lives there, has been documenting the change with an awesome gallery of photos on Flickr.

Black Sunshine...

...which happens to be a great White Zombie tune, also is appropriate for my new, replacement porch sunshine after the nasty thief ripped off my "happy sunshine". This is my protest "Black Sunshine", which will only be on display till Tuesday.

So where ever you are, you nasty thief, the evil eye is chasing you as we speak!

More Beach Art

It is amazing what you can do with a pair of smelly beach sandals and an empty beer can. Just try to use your imagination...

Unexpected Holiday Sightings

Man in the box, Palma, Spain in the Arab Quarter. He was actually in a "manhole". Scary.

Golden Mime in Venice, who handed me a single red rose with a wink

Rant to a very Filthy Thief!

To the drunken fu**s who stole our ceramic sunshine while we were attempting to sleep...I put a fence up to keep as*h***s like you out to begin with.You jumped over the fence, onto our porch and ripped the sunshine off the wires attached to my mailbox. From our upstairs window we watched you and your girlfriend walk away giggling. I hope you got a few pickets in your ass on your trip back over.

I picked the sunshine up in Manchester, UK on my first trip to Europe. I took a day trip to where all of the ceramics are made. It was a one of a kind. The sunshine stands for everything good and positive in life. I will never make it back there again. We will be keeping an eye out for our sunshine and if someone else happens to see it please respond.

Rot in he** you nasty THIEF.
