prepare to be mesmerized. this is brilliant. thank you Penpal James! you are the best.
PS. I have had many, many, many penpals over the years and James is King Penpal. NO ONE can compete with him. There have been times i have received 3 or 4 pieces of mail from him in ONE WEEK. (a decade or so ago he cleared shop in berkeley/shutdown a zine distro 'wow cool' and sent me 10 boxes of zines & records & things). That was...a scene from a movie...like a good version of 'reality bites'. Plus he sends presents..like 'Sonny Angels'.
We've never even met!

i could fill a gallery with my love for PSYCHIC HEARTS by thurston moore. that's my occasional anthem. Sampled: 'live your life the way you love'/what the hell/summer spell/losers/*ssholes/SUCK ALL THE LUCK/Out of the world the world for you
If i can get it back to you i will etc. (i'm writing this in chalk on my wall)
Phone convo (see 'work face'/not hot foto above feminist thurston):
'Ok so you want this bunny guy sent out? He's ready. You're at your Singapore address? ok michelle. roger that. he's going out tomorrow STAT with lynx fur capelet'.
"Your heart is ripped now wrapped in fur"
i have a real potato chip on my shoulder...i mean, a fierce bunny eating a ripple potato chip on my shoulder.
*Michelle is one of my top bunny collectors. she sends me messages via iphone & we hash out the details. Custom. Pimpin' her ride. She's great.
PS thanks Kerri Reid for
reminding me it was YOU who said I reminded her of the best coast girl. vice versa vice. sometimes. i forget. and thanks lyndsay sung for comments...and always SUZY!!!!

here's some ART. buddy shary has a huge show at the AGO. GO if you are in the toronto area (it will also be in vancouver and montreal later in time).
and here are images from lucas soi's new blog ARTAFTERMONEY (i love the name). He's documenting shows in and around vancouver. ya lucas! bring that!...so yes...also photographs from SEA CHANGE which is a group show he curated with work by me and other artists who are female.
the bichon frise is really my friend nadiya's alter ego.
i'm in robot mode. Tweekie's in the shop. Tweekie (sic) is the real robot and my own peronsal Personal Assistant. When Tweekie returns to work he will have an inbox from hell (not unlike obama's day after inauguration).
PS my friend james sent me a link to this Best Coast video. It's silly and adorable. i think someone said the girl reminded them of me. when ppl say things like that, the inclination is Go Check It Out. i guess i can see that if i squint my eyes. she's a cool girl so that is a nice compliment. Also, I like the name of their band. Good name.
