About Me

My photo
I'm an artist, an educator, Pastafarian and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I like unusual juxtaposition, but I love my wife...and beer. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while. Oh, and I mispell alot.

KEY PACKET TUTORIAL
http://folioolio.blogspot.com/2015/07/key-packet-tutorial.html



My wife sent me an amazing article about these new age ways of using wind power to make electricity.


They wiggle.

That's it. They stand there and wiggle and each time it does it makes power. They are small enough to fit in an average backyard. Here's the link:

Okay, he's old news I will spare you in the future.

Quand le street artist Combo s’amuse avec la brigade anti-graffiti de Paris.

I think they are making fun of people who paint someone else's wall without permission.
I'm not really a slave to the almighty dollar (note key packets) but if something is worth doing, one should get paid. If no one will pay you, then that ought to speak volumes to your art's worth.
I like many of the things I come across. I really like creative ideas that I have not seen before.


And I do understand the allure of young kids sneaking around doing their thing to stick it to authority.


But scribbling on walls is for children.

Grown men and women should have something to say, and in my opinion stylishly writing your name or whatever is just childish.


If you do this... Fuck you!
That's Three Rock Mountain - Dublin, Ireland.
Way to go you prick... Ruining it for everyone else.

That does not mean that free art in abandoned places is a bad idea.

I just don't like laziness and stale, overused cliches.

Look, I know I'm not up on all the facts, but the way I look at it is that all the coal, oil, natural gas, uranium, etc that comes out of the ground belongs to all of us. I don't mind corporations making a profit, but I do resent them making a killing selling your and my finite resource that can't be replaced.
But there's ALWAYS a counter-argument.

Then there are the different kind of skills like these next two young ladies...



And I am going to go ahead and commend Keith for his ability to garner hatred from so many people.

I don't like when they use "late" to describe a deceased person. It's like give a guy a break on his attendance. He's dead already.

I mean, holy crap! This gives me a headache.

Here's a close-up.

I do not read music, but I know there is somebody out there in the ether who does. Question: Can you decipher that? And, no, I don't want you to explain it, I just want to know if you could look at that and understand what it is you are supposed to do.

These things cause more problems than you can imagine. As I understand it, you can hunt as many as you want, but the meat is tough. Anybody know if I was told that by a bullshitter?

Porta Nigra, Trier Germany
Completed 200 AD by the Romans

Trier [Tree-air] was only a couple of miles from where I was based in Germany. Back then the main road went through those arches. It was a tight squeeze and the blocks were permanently scarred by scrapping rearview mirrors. I remember thinking that was a disgrace. So apparently they rerouted the road...which is nice.
On a side note: In the late 60s it had a lot of fat letter graffiti, which I also thought was a disgrace.

I can read music, and as far as I can tell I'd need to be Kali to play that piece. It would require about four more hands than I happen to have available.

I would risk to call bullshit on the Trier side note;
I know you don't like kids who write their thing around and can't/won't distinguish them and their motives, but I highly doubt there were fat letter graffiti in the 60-es on some German monument, when that type of vandalism was invented in the USA in late 60-es, become popular in the 70-es and even then took a few years to get adapted here in Europe. I would believe if you said there were some "John was here" type scribbles, but if you put that, the rock defacing idiot and the graffiti/mural painting guys under the same hat, then it's useless to write anything further... BTW some (most?) of the murals you like to praise and present as good art here on your blog are also painted by "fat letter paintin' kids" and that's a good thing.
