Hear The Lamentations of the Women

We partied at Judi's on friday after a screening of "The Wrestler"... We then expanded our minds and watched Conan the Barbarian (1982) on digital cable... I had a major revelation about the films anti-hippie message, but everyone couldn't stop laughing long enough for me to share it... So here it is, it concerns John Milius, who directed the film and Oliver Stone, who wrote it... Stone being a vietnam verteran, and Milius being a bit of a gun nut (the character Walter Sobchack played by John Goodman in The Big Lebowski is closely based on Milius) ... the film's main plot is about a king's daughter who joins a snake cult who worships a shape shifting holy man named Thulsa Doom... the king hires Conan to bring his daughter back, which he gladly accepts seeing as Doom murdered his entire family when he was a child... long story short, Conan exacts his revenge and beheads Doom in front of his followers at his temple... I imagined Stone and Milius were referencing Jim Jones, Manson, etc... and the snake cult representing the "Me" generation of the 1970's... Conan represents the idea of the soldier, driven by a code of honor and service that was derided and demonized in the media, post 'Nam... If Altamont was the slap of reality that ended the 60's, Conan the Barbarian marks the end of the 70's and ushers in a new age of films(Platoon, First Blood, Full Metal Jacket, Missing In Action, etc...) that celebrates the call of duty and elevates the action sequence to new heights.... Or maybe i was just wasted, who knows....

Massacree

Ok, so per Judi's request we had a party last saturday on the anniversary of the tragedy at Guyana... this is the revised invite, it was brought to my attention that my first attempt was deemed "morbid"... it was clear that i missed the sentiment of this occasion, so i made this version that was dead baby free.
Maddy and Peter were first.... they apparently couldn't wait to die.
our make-shift shrine.... don't judge.
get ready for space mac n cheese straight from hollyweird... i heard reports that it didn't work, but it was mostly from skinny drug addicts.
here's Megan getting the mood lighting just right for the sacrifice.
Martin Manly honors a forgotten hero...look closely and you can see that Jim autographed these from beyond the grave!
this was the drink of choice...it should do the trick.
yep, this is the death of the new 60's.... burn your headbands and MGMT records.

Why Did You Land?

Have you ever seen Cruising?...it's the movie that nearly ended william friedkin's career because he turned al pacino into a gay pirate with a parrot... well there is a scene where pacino, a straight cop under cover in the gay underworld, looks himself in the mirror and realizes he's gay... i imagined this cat doing that.

Hell Bent for Viagra

So we went to see Motorhead, Heaven and Hell, and Priest...this bullshit picture cost 10 dollars to download!!!...so i stole the preview from the webpage...still worth it....here's how the evening broke down...
What are you laughing at?
He was laughing at this...our chaperone's.
Big turn out for Motorhead...Lemmy was pretty much unintelligible, but they played Overkill and it was amazing...I even waited in line with bottom feeding mutants for a Motorhead shirt..."Yo, You got Heaven and Hell in 3x?"...It was worth it though.
This is the stage for Heaven and Hell...They are sorta like the metal band for the red wine scene...Dio had a real hard-on about the beach balls...His lady blouse sparkled and was made of velveteen...also they didn't do Neon Knights, they only song he does that trumps the Ozzy stuff...i wanted my 10 dollars back.
PRIEST...PRIEST...PRIEST.....These guys still got alot of juice...Halford sang the new material in a robe...Can't wait for Nostradamus to hit the shelves...Or is it out?, no idea...it is pretty amazing when he comes out on a harley and sits on it for the duration of the encore...He's definitely my favorite leather bear...Alright, PREIST!

Shrimp Levels

Judi had us over to watch the premier of Tim And Eric Awesome Show Great Job...and, being the world class hostess she is, couldn't help herself and purchased 45 dollars worth of shrimp from Trader Joes...did i mention this show comes on at 12:30 am?...did i mention judi has "shrimp" in a foreign language tattoed on her arm?...this info will help set the scene.
finally the meal has arrived and we can start eating!...shrimp make megan violently ill to even think about, so that left me, adam, and jeff...adam remarked he needed a few beers first, which i guess means he needed some courage building before we could embark on this journey.
i think when it was all over, maybe 10 shrimp were eaten between the 5 of us...i wonder why no one wanted shrimp cocktails at midnight?...i wonder how megan kept from vomiting?
this has to be an exsisting fetish...words can't describe the level of queaziness this induces....Thanks for the memories!...oh, and p.s., the new episode was amazing...can't wait for next sunday!

well, this happened last week...i've rooted through hundreds of emails...some of them very nice and some of them borderline insulting...if you do email me about a portrait, it isn't necessary to call me a "caricaturist" or go out of your way to express your dislike for my other work... well, now that thats out of the way... i will share some of these as i frantically try to finish them...peace.

Take The Cash

First shirt i ever designed...also the first time i was censored...it's supposed to read "Quit your job and jerk off"...the moron who printed it thought "jerk off" was to severe, but not an erect penis...so the shirt made zero sense...not a big deal when i look back on it...i have so much rejected work...gotta do something with it one day.
