What's up. It's February Friday the thirteenth. Auspicious. Things are fun. Just had the house vaccinated and the boys have been fumigated. The tides are up and the wind is blowing. I hope all y'all out there are safe and using either your scarf or your sunscreen.
In the news, I went to an opening today for my fellow dude May Izumi.
She is quite excellent and some of her pieces won awards and stuff. So I am very proud, especially cause I got to help work on some of the pieces. it's like watching a precious baby cyclops you taught in kindergarten turn into a monstrous cyclopean horror and destroy a city! So go see this show! (unless you're like a scum-ass dirtbag or something.)
If you don't like monsters and dogfish, then go for the surfers and tree cozys. You'll thank me!
Here's my anyways;
Cousin James Roster FWDed us this "ha-ha FWD message" about our great nation's current economic hurdle...Read on:
"This year, taxpayers will receive an Economic Stimulus Payment. This is a
very exciting new program that I will explain using the Q and A format:
Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.
Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.
Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen.
Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition
TV set, thus stimulating the economy.
Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.
Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by
spending your stimulus check wisely:
If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China .
If you spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.
If you purchase a computer it will go to India .
If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico , Honduras , and
Guatemala (unless you buy organic).
If you buy a car it will go to Japan .
If you purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan .
And none of it will help the American economy.
We need to keep that money here in America . You can keep the money in
America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game, or spend it
on prostitutes, beer and wine (domestic ONLY), or tattoos, since those are
the only businesses still in the US."
I said to myself, you know what this "ha-ha FWD message" needs to do? Tell the TRUTH.
The truth is, everyone out there should go out and buy some AMERICAN ART It's like baseball, prostitution, tattoos, and booze all rolled up into one pretty picture (or sculpture, If that's the way your tastes roll)! What better way to stimulate the economy and keep the money within our country than to support those who represent America with a salmon smoking a pipe, sharing a sundae with a bearded woman in a bikini? Make American artists proud to be American again! or at least proud to make rude social commentary! No one does rude social commentary better than artists!(like any comedians read this blog, right?)
And for goodness sake, buy contemporary American Art! it's not like Jackson Pollock needs the cash!
Anyways, that's my anyways for this month. Stay foxy, lurkers.
