Somebody called me “Bright” tonight.
That's you and the future days...
Brighter is the coming malaise...
Brights Disease is a kidney affliction
It haunts H P Lovecraft's fiction
Slithering old horrors aside
Beware crystal concretions inside
Renal hell defies the red tide
: – )
time for breakfast then
and to get me, and some
washing, out in the sun...
and a reminder that The Bats play Dunedin tonight
Chchch Tomorrow (Sat) at The CPSA at CPIT
(Dux Live still not cleared for opening
- bloody red tape, this town has a bung ticker...)
In our cups...
Start building a retirement wine cellar now.
We just had a RWC,
complete with screwy caps
and sommelier changing rooms
they say it was a bottler battle,
corker! Vintage stuff,
sour grapes and all...
ACT, apparently, is an acronym for Association
of Consumers and Tax payers
A O CAT P has a much better ring to it!
current Govt = reigning Cats n Dogs...
as it were, as u were...
Physical scientists in NZ...
Could be a fund raising calendar in this...
Marketing would be a field day:
"Merry Quantum Physiques"
"Test Tube Babes"
"DeSIRe - A Lab of Love"
"In their element..."
Not so much a Calendar
as a Periodic Table...
the chickens less counted...
there have been A4 exhibitions in the past in NZ
based I think on those early cigar box exhibitions
- there used to be a gallery in Chchch that had an
annual exhibition where all art work was restricted
to the common size of a cigar box lid
and this guy - Ed Musante too
and then there's the Cornellesque assemblages using
cigar boxes as a common starting point... like Spencer Bohren
I like the Alexander Bartleet creations
- plasticscene strata sorta
I'm enjoying your blog Mr Cauchi
and love your line art
(we share a fascination with Mayan Codex it seems)
have you thought of doing an artist's Music Muse compilation
- like this one
and you mention artists books have you made any of these
and I wonder if you'd like to make cards of some of your works
(pin money perhaps - but spreads the ideas)
I ask because I am set up to print and produce
cards and small booklets (shameless self-promotion)
(I Print David Haywood's excellent
Albert the Otter book - The Hidden Talent of Albert Otter )
if you are interested in exploring that idea - email me
(I've reactivated my email link above
- time to reconnect with the world....)
Because I have trouble not doing extensive unasked
research on topics for no reward
There must be a suitable name for that wonderful condition…
More Kissing Key photos...
Cup day photos from The Press, The man is a self promotion machine ..
- I notice in the comments someone was (rightly) outraged that John Key kept talking during the minute's silence for the Earthquake victims!
- he's a classy guy all right...
taking the pith…
Like most pursuits there’s plenty of sayings.
Standardised as A4isms…
Gripe water colours…
…this little tube of a special colour
and then griped about the price
…but then he also painted nude on stage.
Potters are way more fun.
Some are born with the shtick some with the basil.
Raise the bah, lower the boom...
It’s not lazy, it’s realistic….
they only have to stand for a month or two,
and then sit for the next three years.
from poll position
to income bent...
