Knight Death and the Devil



Please, I address thee to come into me today and focus my mind on the tasks at hand. The tasks that will bring me closer to visionary nether regions in the form of paint marks, large and small. There are 4 biggies that are near completion. Mind, be sharpened by the forces of evil and hands, instruct the paintings to cave to your will. It's a very dark, very very evil business, the business of the shack. I am growing fangs in anticipation.

The quieter you are, the more evil you will get. The paintings will work out better.

take your dagger. fangs cannot complete the task alone. don't give in, don't give up.

i can't stop blogging. i can't stop. i am mad for it. i will drink a tall glass of bile (cheers!) and again make the attempt to face the day.

go MM!

sloth said...

MM, can you use your fangs as inky-pens? dip in ink & draw with the tips, see what happens.

Hope you had a fang-tastic day in the studio.

Mountain Man said...

I believe I am partially on my way towards conquering. It was a rare and good day in the studio....a day of pretty much constant focus, with the exception of a minor glitch that was forgotten with the help of Ham Paw. Thanks Ham.

WW, sometimes I get so into the ether, it scares me. I have to yank my stinking egghead out, put it in some fresh dirty city air, remember that I have skin. The ether can make you feel unfresh, unholy. But it is addicting, I do agree.

Sloth, good thinking. Always looking for creative uses.

My face feels like a coconut donut, crumbly with dried bits. Fried up.

work said...

Sink your teeth into the neck of your work.

Mountain Man said...

Work, I will, with fangs and a snakey poison tongue. It's all about evil. It's all about putting things in the right places, you get me?

The devil works best in the winter. Trade your soul in for his wares.

Do it.

'Tis was the devil who created Jicima.

Sammy No Hands said...

Also, the devil made arugula.

Scrunchee said...

The velvet is coming back to perpetrate.

Listen. I am the lack of brain of MM. He has a studio visit tomorrow that was last minute. He is not ready.

jicima hater said...

He is ready...he just doesn't know it.

Spinach of Doom said...

I know you and I know Shelley Duvall for I am the stomach of cartoon characters with large forearms. I am ready to remove your goiters with Vitamin X.

escarole said...

I love you jicima!!

Smashup said...

I can't believe it.

I am warming to these confusions. I am heated and heaving like a bosom in summertime.

Doomsayer of Doom and what-not said...

It is happening!!!

escarole said...

Please...I have many goiters that need removing.

Citizen of Mourning said...

I am a remover of anything swollen or tumorous. Please call me at my home, any time, I am waiting. I will not quake at the look of your malformity.

Jasper Janx said...

I support all motions made herein and heretoforward. You are delightful.

sheepish pd said...

Moreover, I henceforth declare my love for you.

Juggler from the Woods said...

Everyone is loving today, it is the way from the distance. There is no confusion only straightforward caring and forgiveness. Sheepishness is part of the mental hook-up.

sloth said...

Escarole, I will send Wandee with her goiter-baster contraption, stat!

MM and PD, I hereby wed you on pringle mountain. I do.

Sushi Blameful said...

If this true, many positive lucks tomorrow Mountain. Much sun on your visit. Always ready in mind.

Mountain Man said...

Sushi!!!!! Do not blame me. I am the sun spot on your chunk. Your chunk is the part that hooks your head to your shoulder. You are within and without, in the tragic way of the demons, who are post-naughty, they are gorging on delight.

Sloth. I wed you on your head with pringles and cake with frosting. I love your fur and tangles.

pd said...

I was just thinking of you Sushi--I SWEAR. Welcome back.

Thanks for the nuptials sloth. Please throw crumpled baked cool-ranch Doritos as we exit....

Mountain Man said...

PD, my question to you:

why bake the cool ranch when you can have 'em fried? that's all kinds of f-ed up.

pd said...

MM will shine tomorrow in the shack. If there is trouble, I will head on over with the slicer.

Mountain Man said...

There may not be trouble in the usual format. Just bad touch. No transactions. You get me?

pd said...

You are so right MM...so right. Let's have deep-fried Milkyways thrown at us too.

pd said...

Don't you let anybody touch you MM. I will not stand for it. Beware the chicken fingers.

sloth said...

Sushi, I was thinking of you today, o most beautiful, amazing and egg-mcmatic one... wishing for sushi good-luck balm in the sloth-shaq.

sloth said...

MM, who is going to be in your shack tomorrow? I want to sacrifice something... but to whom/what?

Mountain Man said...

Just chew off some fingernails, Sloth. That will be plenty offering. There is a wizard coming. A unit of wizardry that has been there before. A bug zapper of maybe. I will report on the details in pseudo-puzzler language post-trauma.

Doomsayer of Doom and What-not said...

Even I think it will go well, MM.

sloth said...

MM, did you see the horrible, horrible gallery that called me? I should not show, even in Switzerland or whatever, right?

Mountain Man said...

I wanted to wait for UF's opinion. We think scary maybe. Yeah. I don't know. Anything in another country seems ok but then....maybe no? You are better than this. The website caused brain fits.

Mountain Man said...

You are MUCH better than that. Dearie one.

sushi Blameful said...

Mountain, you blameless and calm. No luck for this handed one. Much sun in ability to block all. Force thought, make think, show self.

Mountain Man said...

SUSHI I obey. Thank you for your true and warming words. What is truth, I do not know, but Sushi is forever.

pd said...

I don't know which gallery you speak of, but MM knows and he gives good advice.

sloth said...

sushi, the sloth-heart swells with love for your mysteriousness.

mm, I was going to email them & say, "overextended right now," or "not a good fit," or something; hate bridge-burning, but... in this case...

Mountain Man said...

Overextended seems less bridge-burning...in me opinion. Sloth, you want the people who will take good and special care of your relics. I try to remind self of this. Better to wait for the right thing than settle in the meantime.....

sloth said...

pd, this is the one... brace yourself:

Mountain Man said...

I love you Sloth and don't want any bads for you, that's all. I could be wrong.....

sloth said...

This just doesn't seem like a good path, MM.

pd said...

The overextended thing is a good response. The site is so slick and your work is in a whole other league. You are much better than that.

What is with the guy looking at the jar on its side?

sloth said...

here is the ONE GUY who seems like he has done a handful of decent paintings, but mostly his stuff is bad, too:

sushi Blameful said...

Sloth, you bring sun and luck. Be self always out.

pd said...

It is hard to tell from that website. It is too slick and flashy to really know. But it seems like a not so good spot.

sloth said...

Sushi, the scorpio nature is so non-out... it's a tough row to hoe.

pd said...

You do rock, Slothy.

sloth said...

p-diddly, likewise with the you-rock!

escarole said...

I second that emission.

Doomsayer of doom and woo hoo said...

Ditto.

sloth said...

Argh! blogger with the time warp... f@&#!

jicima hater said...

I may hate jicima, but I love you!

pd said...

baby, baby, baby you're outta time!
