Here’s another lizard pic for all the lizard lovers out there in TV land. Unlike some of the recent animal pieces I’ve posted recently, this one veers away from the 1960s faded rainbow color harmony in favor of a more disturbing diseased flesh landscape- a blend of well-worn cowboy face with a mutated cowboy environment. I’ve had a fascination with a sort of necrotic Gaia setting, a corrupt global consciousness succumbing the weakness of the life that defines it, spiraling into a mass unified depression, rivers slitting their wrists while violins play the most minor keys that only the most suicidal of composers can conceive while the thumping collective heartbeat sinks to a mere single beat per minute. The chilling sense of infinity that comes from single point of reference, horizon-gazing, mirroring, rule of thirds, Kubrickin’, macro the micro/micro the macro, etc. and the like- I’m a sucker for all those motifs.

The World’s Second Greatest Detective was the proud recipient of a number of creative and practical items from one of our talented friends. Like me, he likes to cover lighters in pictures and glue, but he also works with a number of other materials. He gave us three light plates, which I brought to Wonder Root. The one pictured above can be found in the rear washroom. The one below can be found right outside the Darkroom.

One of the light switches in the Ceramics Studio didn’t have a light switch cover at all. Luckily the Joker swung in to save the day.

Additionally, there were lighters.

All these very thoughtful gifts were bestowed upon us at our Spring Festival party where we introduced Sichuan Hot Pot (火锅) to our friends who proved themselves worthy of our friendship by eating a lot. We held the party on February 8, 2014 (aka 2/8/14 Green Lantern Day) so the Green Lantern lighter was especially appropriate. As everyone knows, however, Green Lantern stuff is always an appropriate gift, so we ran into each other again last night at a friend’s party. He and his wife gave my wife and I some buttons (not hand-crafted, but hand-selected)-

Yeah, the cat one are pretty cute.

A friend of mine suggested several popular figures for me to depict as pandas. Among her suggestions was NYC mayoral candidate and sexting champion Anthony Weiner, depicted here with his incredibly supportive wife Huma Abedin. If you are interested in seeing more of Weiner, you may want to check out these graphic images of his penis. If you are not interested in seeing his penis, I strongly suggest you don’t click on that link and click on this link instead. While drawing the disgraced politician, the Flaming Lips’ “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song” came on and it got me thinking about the Flaming Lips, no strangers to sharing pictures of weiners, and I came up with a little play on the Yeah Yeah Yeah Song.

(to the tune of “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song”)

If you could write explicit messages to women who aren’t yr. wife,

If you came thinking about me and wanted to tell me about it,

And so we cannot know ourselves or what we’d really do

What would you do?

If you tell the public that you’ve cleaned up your act,

would you do it?

NO NO NO NO, NO NO NO NO

If you could treat the Palestinians with a small amount of respect,

Are you crazy?
