I have a son



I got up real early, farm-like, at 4 a.m., woke up my son (my new son!!!) that I grew overnight in a terrarium. We made this bread bear together and are eating it with loads of jam. I love my new son! He looks just like me and is so well-behaved.

In other news, I must report that I am in total complete belief that even if I do not sell my relics I am still a great great artist for the world of my mind. It is ok. I will plod ahead, the delusion quotient is ever so high. Today I will venture back in the studio - I am thinking of ancient tortures performed in the primeval woods, in hopes that my landscapes will become more menacing. Or more hallucinatory. Or just basically better and more exciting. YEAH!!! And then I will try again to make other people love them. If they do not or will not due to 1. they don't like my work, that's all or 2. they don't like the way I smell and it carries over to their feelings about my work, it doesn't matter, I will forge ahead.

Also I must find some more teaching jobs. If anyone is looking for a competent and "quirky" 7 ft. she-male with skin disorders to teach art to college students please give me a call.

mm, i am so happy to hear about the final days of teaching! it sounds like it has turned out well after all the orneriness. Congrats to you!!

And poops to the people who did not pick up the mm relics. poops on them i say. i never understand this stuff but I AM CONVINCED that they are excellent, beautiful relics. many people with monies don't know what they are doing. dealers don't know what they are doing. the market makes no sense.

the crap that people buy. the crap that people celebrate. i am going to be doing some blogging today (I hope..... thinking is happening again. trying to avoid the dark side.

Fairy, I know. It is so random and I was so addicted to reading all the blog coverage, hearing about everybody selling I thought some of it would rub off on me. For the life of me I can't figure out why they didn't sell. I thought they were modestly priced, very very loved and worked on madly and intensely. I fear I am just one of those peeps who is on the slow slow ramp to mediocrity. Which is fine I guess. At least I am still making relics after all these years. I sure do love to.

Mountain Man said...

Fairy you are so cute, you remind me of a noodle. I hope you don't take that the wrong way.

fairy butler said...

It makes no sense mm. Goddammit!! But your attitude is most excellent and I love the relics. Oh, the pink one!!

I have been reading a bit on the blogs too about the miami thing - trying not to feel like a loser since i had no part in it. I must say my favorite thing is martin's gursky post. love.

fairy butler said...

we should have some champagne mm in that we are still making relics five years out of mfa world. it does mean something, right? even though i am tormented most of the time about my 'life' decisions?

i am reading the dekooning bio - it is spurring on dangerous thoughts. i will need to blog on it today.

Dear MM,

You know your relics are wonderful treasures. You don't need the sales to assure you of that.

xo,
PD

Oh, and the birth of this son....does this mean you will ignore your soon-to-be born son, Felix, that I am carrying in my womb???

fairy butler said...

hi pd, congrats to you on the little felix! so you know it is boy already?

can i be the first to get felix a toy? a tiny, platic deli-slicer perchance?

postmoderndebunker said...

Yes! Fisher Price makes a great deli-slicer for tots.

fairy butler said...

i believe it comes with a full assortment of deli meats - pastrami, cornish beef, prosciutto, etc.

And special blades for slicing menacing "suits."

krixforts said...

hi cats! as I said in the poof post, congratulations and cheers to the end of the smester and your first teachin' gig!! and congrats on your new son. Does he look like the bread bear?

PD, did you create a baby registry yet for Felix? I am short on gift ideas. I saw "my little nuclear reactor" but I wasn't sure if it was age appropriate.

I have to go back to the murderator now. See you in a couple of weeks after I have finished my executions.

MM! Don't doubt your relics. Stay strong and keep making the wonderful. Sales never determine worth. Don't let the outside invaders steal your joy. Your relics are beautiful treasures.

sloth said...

MM, you and your relics have a very bright future; the love and smartness and quirkiness will carry the day.

sloth said...

P.S. Your new son has an outie - or is that the umbilical nub?

mountain man said...

Thanks for the kindness and sweetness. I know it's all a crap shoot. I go back into denial, it's the only choice. Time to make some more, time to get better at it. There is swellness all around, I will put on my wine skin goggles and the truth will be clear to me.
