I picked up a new piece of “art” this weekend. A buddy of mine turned me on to this photographer named Joshua Hoffine, and I love his stuff. Its very dark. The piece I chose is of the little girl and the clown with balloons.
People who know me know that I HATE clowns. Simply loathe them. They are creepy and I have NO earthly idea why our society tries to perpetuate the myth that they are funny and kid friendly. ‘Cause they aren’t.
Clowns are grotesque, evil things trying to conceal their true nature. I mean, hello! Baggy clothing, exaggerated makeup, no talking, handing out gifts, etc…. Ew. Just EW.
A nightmare for me is being trapped at Barnum and Bailey’s Klown Kolledge or whatever the fuck it is.
That being said, I LOVE the photograph I’ve chosen. You don’t see anything but the clown silouette with one clawed hand– and an innocent child looking on. Its deliciously unnerving (as true art should be). Oh, and the title is: After Dark, My Sweet.
Speaking of art: Hello Kitty should be framed at the end of this week. I had to select a new frame for it because the one selected for it was out of stock. The new frame it isn’t the exact one that Kyle chose, but it is totally in the same vein and even MORE over the top. (and more expensive, although I’m not paying any more for it!)
Here’s my rendition of the skeletal art thing- but with the Little Mermaid:
I imagine she tastes like halibut. Or mahi mahi.
NYC Blogger Update:
I’m having weight issues. I’m very depressed today because I’m up from where I was on Sunday. Granted I couldn’t work out last night because of band practice, but I really didn’t figure I’d go UP any. Seriously, my caloric intake is cut to the nub.
I’m going to be introducted as Chunky McFatterton at this thing. Instead of cb, everyone will be calling me “fb” (fat boy).
Oh, and I’m learning that a few of the people that I’m going to meet there are under the 5’9″ mark…. Great. So I’m going to be the giant who has to watch where he sits so that he doesn’t inadvertently smother a fellow blogger.
Fee-Fi-Fo- Fuck it.
I’m bitter today.
