Hitting the Chelsea Forest with FB






Andre Ethier. This show was good that we laughed our way through the whole thing. He seems to be having so much fun making these paintings, it's infectious. I predict many imitators will be spawned in the coming months. We felt strongly that Derek Eller should open an Andre Ethier museum on his premises so his paintings could be on view permanently. What is it about dirty pirates, shrunken noses, strippers and Jews that work so well together?

yes derek eller, if you are out there listen up. you must open a second floor when you move that will host a permanent selection of the a.ethier relics at all times. then when chelsea forest makes me sad and deranged i can always stop in for a quick pick me up.

i feel we should also shout out to gary peterson (@ michael steinbergs) and ellen alfest's plants @ bellwether. all over the forest was not that forbidding. much good painting to be had.

MM, I was thinking about our live commentary tv show. it would be part bevis and butthead. what color will our matching sweat outfits be? Please allow me to carry the clipboard. you can carry the whistle and the stop watch. or maybe the scoring cards.

This is a great show. I saw when he did the project room there last spring and fell in love with his work. I would like to see what he could do on a larger canvas.

Yes I will carry whistle and stopwatch. You can have the clipboard FB. Your sweatsuit will be lavendar and mine will be brown in case of accidental emissions.

I think you are right, a shout out to Ellen and Gary is next on the list. It was uplifting to see some good painting out there this time.

Painter, I agree about Andre going bigger, but he is so good small, that if it never happens I will still heart him deeply.

Also there must be extra padding in the ass area to make getting in and out of the galleries more problematic, more helter-skelter. The show will be all about physical comedy, biting insights, and puerile yucks. We must come up with a name. Sometimes we can wear headresses, sometimes we can tattoo the star of david on our spare tire guts. Well at least I will on mine, for you are graced with a spare tireless tummy.

More on this fabulous upcoming talk show later. Who wants to be Best Boy? Who wants to be Grip?

Andre Ethier just got traded by the Oakland Athletics to the Dodgers for Milton Bradley - fuckin' weird names-in-the-news coincidence.
