Incohesive post

I have to admit I'm not feeling as blogtacular as I normally do. Currently, I'm on a don't-have-a-helluva-lot-to-say kinda mode. Although it might be more of an ever-since-I-got-back-from-vacation-I-can't-focus-for-shit-and-there's-good-stuff-in-my-brain-I-can't-seem-to-get-to kinda deal.

There's been work stuff going on both exciting and medium exciting but who wants to hear someone talk about work right? With that said, in no particular order here are some random musings from recent weeks:

I noticed on Heckasac today that there was some disappointment about lukewarm attendance at the recent Ancient Sons show. Not to simply reiterate the sentiments suggested by others on a neighboring blog but Chris, if you're out there reading this... I wouldn't take the low attendance personally. I say this because for the last two days I've been non-stop rocking thee new Makeout Party cassingle and King Tuff both of which I purchased at thee under-attended Makeout Party show at Luigi's recently. In listening to these two albums over the weekend I keep thinking, man Sac missed out on some stellar live music and djing and most folks who missed it would cop to that fact. In short never let one show be your guide, shit happens.

Speaking of shit happening, I was a little foggy at the show because a. there was the obvious beer factor and b. I didn't know it at the time but I had pulled my back out earlier that day while shaving the dog. To repeat, I pulled my back out while shaving the dog. I'm sure there are lamer ways to injure one's back but that feels pretty dorky to me. Following Thee Makeout Party show I barely got out of bed for a day and a half and stunk like analgesic balm. At the time I thought it was those concrete floors that were the culprit but I should have known something was up when I could barely stand up straight by the time we left. Although, I suppose that's where the beer came in.

Saturday night the Verge was featured on the KVIE art auction and I made an appearance as our designated "art expert." I got to meet Kermit and I used the word sexy in reference to a piece of work. I feel great shame about one of those last two statements.... I'll let the reader decide which one.

Today I spent a bunch of time cleaning my studio and actually found a piece that I don't remember making from about five years ago. I'm not sure if that's a milestone or not and if it is whether that's good or bad. I also found the receipt from the day I entered the State Fair's Fine Art competition from the year I took top honors. It's seems strange to me that I could have moved studios four time since then and still be discovering stuff. I don't want to think about what that means, although it might mean that I am el puerco, which I already knew.

I went wine tasting yesterday which was cool. Am I boring anyone yet?

Now for super non-sequitur time...

When you google image search the words "incohesive post" this shot of the Ganglians is the third thing that pops up... no lie.... Corti's homemade salad dressing is like crack cocaine, I could do shots of it straight and eat it on almost anything... pink pearl apples are beautiful freak fruit but tart as hell... I wonder what Dave Smith and Skipper are doing RIGHT NOW while simultaneously wondering how long OMF's fascination with Phillip Garrido will last... really annoyed about what ignorant shitballs all over the country are saying about Obama's death panel, seriously people even if he was that evil he's in his first term, call me crazy but it seems to me that a death panel would really kill one's shot at reelection... pardon the pun... stoked that the pool installation at PS1 will still be up when I visit in January and that I will be able to catch The Americans in LA later this month before it's gone.... speaking of gone...

Fin!

I just got out of teaching my last class for the day. I have no idea how to be "on" all the time. Contrary to popular opinion, and I'm sure you and Skipper noticed, I hang out by myself a lot.

I still have 2 hours before I can leave work. A student thought I might be bored so he gave me a copy of "Benjamin Button" to watch which I will. youtube doesn't work on my school computer so I can't catch up on Korean music.

You should watch this by Crying Nut. I've seen it and wish I could watch it right now.

Liv Moe said...

That exceeds all expectations. Wow!

This just in OMF is talking about the Garridos RIGHT NOW. ha

You're right about being on all the time. That's a hard thing to do. Sometimes when i can't build in down time I'll get weirdly anti-social at unpredictable moments.

I haven't seen Button yet. Let me know if it's watchable...

smitty said...

Right now there is a salesman, I think, standing behind me in the faculty room. The vice principal just dropped off some grapes on my desk. In Korea, you don't eat the outside of the grape because of the pesticide. They're good grapes. His secretary dropped off a duk(sp?) some kind of rice cake with beans and fruits. I never know what's going on around me out here.

So far, Button is ok. Sappy and predictable so far. Okay, now the guy is handing out seaweed. I'm getting used to eating seaweed but it's not my favorite. OK, he's a seaweed salesman. Crazy, man, crazy.

If it makes you feel better, I threw out my back washing my hands at work. Embarrassing.

smitty said...

I take that back about the movie. It gets worse as it goes on. I'm only watching it because 1), a student gave me a pirated copy; and 2), there's a mid-50s Triumph and an Indian Enfield motorcycle in it.

Oh, I'm just doing the fill in project managing at the moment and working a bizarre schedule that starts at around 2 or 4pm and runs into the night. That's been keeping me busy during the week while I wait to move into my new place this Sunday. Paying the equivalent of $450 for three months or until the end of November when we all have to move out for the building to get renovated.

Going to the market now for dinner crap to make for my temporary roommate. We'll see what kind of meatloaf I can pull off here. Maybe I'll shove some canned peaches inside it รก la Gordon. You remember that don't you Liv? That delicious Gordon Bleu in Prague?

beckler said...

Watch out for the Bavarian meatloaf. It tastes like HOT DOGS.

I threw out my shoulder once playing pinball. I threw out my hip shoveling two weekends in a row at the community garden. Guess I would not make a good farmer.

Liv Moe said...

Mmmmm, Gordon Bleu....

I think maybe I've had something similar to Bavarian meatloaf... Skipper? Is that what you made at Stan and Ann's BBQ? I thought it was good but really rich and OMF said it made him sad because it was made with baby animals.

These freak injury stories make me question how I'll throw my back out next.... prior to the dog it was hauling rocks and before that it was painting a floor.

Did you buy the seaweed Smitty?

smitty said...

No seaweed for me. Last night I ate angler fish. It was pretty good. I even had some more bugs.

Liv Moe said...

what kind of bugs?

skpr said...

Yea, that's what I made at Stan and Ann's. I found out afterward that Morant's just uses pork in theirs, so it pretty much is hotdog loaf. It probably tastes better here because it's still made with veal, hence the name veal loaf.

Haven't had it yet along with too many other German things that I want to eat again. Still just enjoying the cheap cheese and bread. It seems wrong to get three full bags of groceries for 25 euros and the most expensive thing being my cigarettes.

Liv Moe said...

Yes! I forgot about cheap Euro cheese!

smitty said...

pupae. Or, as it was explained to me, "baby butterflies".

skpr said...

pupae. sounds vegatarian.

My friend and I were recently talking about how technology has become so integrated in our day to day lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes less expensive, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about every once in a while.
