Sloth

Sloth posted links to many wondrous images yesterday. It made for many explorations into fun and possibility for relic-making. Here is one of my favorites:

.

But why is the lady buried alive? It is sad to wonder. It looks like she prefers to be there and is not at risk for death from suffocation. Instead she is safe and secure from the crowds, the angular task-driven wildness of the world above. She reminds me of curled up cat oblivion.

Thank you Sloth, for being such a stellar blogger. I heart you.

Meanwhile, Marcy has taken leave of me. She was an angry vengeful presence, as it turns out. Marcy had much bile to spew at her former classmates, invoked in the ether through incantatory magic.

PS - Sloth's eye, I may have found the perfect adhesive for the glitter - I do not think it will interfere with your purpose-driven ocularity.

This woman is a New Yorker who had to travel to the upper east side too often. She said many times that she would rather be buried alive than take the 6 train in 90 degree weather in the summer. Her friends decided she should be put out of her misery.

Rambling wordless wondering that crushes veins and blocks passageways, mangled for nothing, no purpose. Please self-generate power to change worry and hates and fears into loveliness, purposefulness and somewhat calm, even if it is stimulating, forward-driving calm. I am here and missing something, a hole in the center like a doughnut but less tasty.

PD, I will not allow you to be buried in this way.

sloth said...

The Log of Sloth has a similar function to this pretty lady's burrow. She looks calm. She is happy to have such a thick wall of protection, especially in this scorchy heat.

Art Collector said...

This painting is brilliant. Is it for sale?

PD said...

Although I do not like taking the lexington ave. subway...I am not requesting to be buried alive. Call me crazy...

krixfort said...

that is not unlike the cone of silence.

fairy butler said...

this is a good illustration of taking the 6 train from union square on a day such as this me thinks.

wala said...

thats about how large my living space is sometimes. that skull near her feet, that's my neighbor after too many red bulls.

mountain man said...

I thought red bulls made you peppy, i didn't realize red bull was a skin remover.

mountain man said...

If you would like to, you may stay in my shed for a little while. It promises to be at least twice the size of that coffin.

PD said...

I think Red Bull does remove skin, veins and golgi bodies. It is quite a drink.

ham paw said...

Red bull is best injected into brain hole. This is a hidey hole within the body. This body must be divided into parts. Each part requiring a different drink.

fairy butler said...

Ham Paw, please elaborate on the different drinks for different parts. I am listening carefully.

fairy butler said...

did anyone read the article on meth mouth in the times yesterday? loose toothers.

ham paw said...

head-red bull
neck- ice tea
chest- wine
waist and torso- beer
pelvis and vagina- sprite
thigh and knee- apple juice
calf- grape soda
foot- iced coffee
toe- rootbeer

ham paw said...

there are tiny hidey holes in each section. One must uncover these holes (a trying task) and insert a straw. Proceed with caution.

mountain man said...

I have a straw in my chest for the wines right now. It is soothing.

krixfort said...

I am trying to uncover the toe hole.

ham paw said...

Check under the nail.

ham paw said...

scrotum- coffee

krixfort said...

thank you.

ham paw said...

krix, did you find? Are your toes plumping?

krixfort said...

no hammy because my toe is in use right now. I had to jam into one of the sirs's holes.

ham paw said...

that is a good use, krix. My hope is that your toenail is sharpened into thick point. A sir informed me yesterday that people are poor because they lack initiative. YES SIR!

mountain man said...

Hi Ham. Do you still love me? Do you still want to smear snacks on each others backs?

ham paw said...

I do, MM. Lets smear fruit roll up and fig neutons.

ham paw said...

I'm gonna stick some powder candy straws in your hidey holes MM!!!!

fairy butler said...

thank you hampaw for the body part drink instructions. I am working the straws into my hidey holes today in my pen. I am very thirsty.
