Test



This is a test of the Collage System to see if my blog has been cut up into little pieces, never to be commented on again. The comments were not working so I am performing a Hanna Hoch test to see if things get back in motion. Test test.

Thank you, Hanna for fixing my blog.

ds said...

MM, you just needed a little lube; you know, it's actually "Butter is the superhero that makes all things good." I believe this has a broader reference, and thanks for quoting the whippersnapper is such pretigious context.

mountain man said...

Your whippersnapper is the oracle and superhero of Brooklyn. I know you are proud.

Bob Bernathy said...

The whippersnapper is right. I love butter. However please don't try it as lube.

whippersnapper said...

Mountain Man, you are "sameular" to the gods.

mountain man said...

Hi Whippersnapper. You are sameular too. I thank you.

USB said...

Dear MM:
this image looks like a refugee from the fashon runways..talk about a test pattern...

Corny said...

MM there was foam, rivers of foam. but there was also FRIED MAYONAISSE!!!!
WD-50:
It isn't great but it isn't offensive.

MM said...

She is beautiful this collage lady. I am beginning to get it. Collage, fragmenting and reassembling, surgery performed on high and low culture to create Frankensteins. Coherence and purity fade in favor of juxtaposition, disarming comparisons...there is an equalizing of ubiquity and transcendence. Maybe.

Corns, WD-50 - the collage restaurant? Fried mayonnaise? Did you have to eat it? Gag reflexes are coming.

sloth said...

MM, it is good, this slice & dice via Hanna... otherwise things can become homogenized like the Tropicana.

I would like to shuffle my own deck: interleaf the meat-coil with some 2-dimentional elements; add some spherical found objects; duplicate some stuff; increase or reduce sizes of other parts. Throw some bits in a blender and press "mangle," and garnish.

regi said...

My blog has been f#*ked up too. And thanks to the person who marked my blog as offensive I cant post my flickr photos to it either.

pdelicious said...

WD-50 freaks me out. Only went once--it's so pricey. But all the weird frothing and the food was compositionally challenged. I just want tasy food with less fuss.

(But I am available for reviewing restaurants here in exchange for free meals)

Corny said...

MM again! Can your descriptive abilities and super-human powers of analysis be any more on? You are the sheriff with a six shooter packing enlightment, I am a cactus in the desert.

I might have said "Coherence and purity is stomped out like an used cigarette" instead of "fade" but thats just me.

Corny said...

Seven seals of the apocalypse:

1) Great earthquake.
2) The sun turns black.
3) The moon turned blood-red.
4-5-6) Blablabla

7) FRIED MAYONAISSE


Compleatly sickening to even think about right now. Agreed Pd, less fuss, less foam, more flava.

MM said...

You are too funny. Christ almighty, blah blah blah are the surest signs but FRIED MAYONNAISE. I agree, it is demonic.

I am in fits with this collage stuff. It's great, I'm all excited, but see, when I get up in front of the kids my powers of description wane, I become all...."um, so, like, this is a collage??? and stuff?" I need to teach correspondence courses. This standing in front of eye-rollers who yawn taxes my sense of self. I think to myself, I know, you're right, I don't want to be here either. Can't we just agree to agree and make the best of it? But I think I am suppose to inspire them or something so I get all flustered.

Me = retarded

MM said...

I need to pack fried mayonnaise with me to inspire me. However, listen up everyone Jess and George Herms, John Heartfield, Mimmo Rotello - these guys are intense. More later. Got to finish this shit up.

pd said...

MM, that is so totally random. I know you dazzle these chumps in the end.

MM said...

Thanks Pdelicious. You are kind. Today I am going in with big excitement for collage. Collage can be random and radical so maybe it's just right for 20 year olds.

sloth said...

MM, collage = radical intervention, subversion and fracturing of pictorial space. Violence, drama. They will get it, you will be great. Take those beta blockers, banish the self-doubts. Bring a big book along -- an encyclopedia maybe -- and slam it down on the desks of the yawning ones. Best of lux, mm.

McFarland said...

Dude! I am a freshman in collage right now--it's rad and random all in one.

krixfort said...

those chumper kids. They don't know a good thing when they have it MM. you rock the house.

MM said...

Thanks Slothy, you are sweet and knowledgeable. (Not to mention nicest fur, first prize).

Thanks Krix too. You guys are very good to the MM. There will be payback in the form of a hot dog log cabin. It's going to happen.

sloth said...

Log cabin! Wooo-hooo! I'm gonna live in mine down in Battery Park. I'll have campfires every night -everyone's welcome to come visit & fry the meats.

sloth said...

HFP just yelled at me - supposed to be leaving for beige, blogging instead... total addict. There IS a computer at beige, after all...

meatroll said...

What?

Corny said...

You= totally NOT retarded.

Would it help if you didn't have to look at them? Could you set up a curtain to shield you like the wizard in the Wizard of Oz?

Just ask'n?

MM, HERE"S THE SECRET:

They HAVE TO act like they dont care because they need to be impressing eachother with their jouissiance, because at that age apathy=sexy, right? But in secret, behind listless slumped bodies, your words penetrate their spongy little brains are hungry for what you have to give.
it's true.

Sisyphus said...

As secret support for the Mountain, Corny, you provide the rock to roll. It is a slow and subtle accumulation. Truer words are rarely spoken. The MOUNTIAN IS HUGE, and it must be climbed. Pebbles along the way, slumped if you will, are no match for the penetrating power of MM. Anxious=Alert=most probably, the best Professor the little sponges will ever have. Suck it up little ones, this may be all you get.

Regi said...

MM
Was it you who wanted a supply of fukitol.

The Capt'n said...

MM, those selfish little takers don't know how good they have it to have you. But I think Corny is right about their feigned nonchalance...inside they tremble, secretly. What's that candy bar that's crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside..?

fairy butler said...

i really like the behind the curtain oz-master idea. booming voice. however, the feigned nonchalance would probably still persist. it is inescapable.

maybe i could phone in a bomb scare or something?

MM said...

Hi you guys are so nice to encourage. For some reason my confidence level dwindles in the hours pre-teaching, I over-prepare - I think it's just that I am still getting used to it. I tried to remember what Corny said about them being one way on the outside and that information and ideas still get through...I know it's true. But wow when you get your 160 image collage presentation together and get all excited about the potential of this medium and then you look out and see people with their heads on their desks not even looking...time to slam that big book like Sloth said.

All in all though I think it went well yesterday. Poor Bud has noises in his head that he can't articulate. Just sounds. He said that he is sure it's a real language and that maybe it's the way he would communicate if his tongue was removed in a horrible accident. Maybe these unpronounceable sounds would become real words. All I could say was "I really hope you don't lose your tongue" which made me feel like a pervert.

postmoderndebunker said...

MM, next week you must hire Frogs to take your place!

fairy butler said...

Yes, Frogs! Oh, mm, that would make me crazy to look out and see kids sleeping on their desks. I am sure you're doing a super duper job. I want to take your class.

Frogs said...

Frogs is learning about Scientology, that's me, I am Frogs. For instance, I am over-run pre-clear with my R3R. This is the religion of Xenu and the Thetans. I am clusters of Thetans that is the description and the reason. There were volcanos and H-bombs 75 million years ago. Now that I know this I may owe $250,000 or die.

Please visit www.xenu.net for some serious fun times.

fairy butler said...

is that xenu stuff for real? or joke?

Frogs said...

It's real FB. Entertaining for the betterment of us. The scientology website will tell you nothing, but this xenu site is revealing the goodies. Just picture Tom and Katie crying together as they attempt to banish the Thetans and painful traumas from previous lives. They are on a cruise ship called Freewinds, they are weeping and holding each other, saying OMG now we can fry bugs. I am sorry you were once a clam.

fairy butler said...

at least i'm not a scientologist. i can feel good about this.

MM said...

Yes you are not a member of any cult, this is positive, something to be happy for.

postmoderndebunker said...

I'm losing my religion. Bit by bit, I am becoming a heathen.

fairy butler said...

i am 100% hater.

Mountain Man said...

100% haters are 100% good in my book. PD, remember the heathens who lived next door in the nude suits? I should repost that picture. I should do a lot of things. I should run for city council.

postmoderndebunker said...

Oh, bring back the nudies. I think you should run for governor

Mountain Man said...

I'm going to be the next funky president, like the James Brown song. He is the mayor, the governor and the funky president. He is inspiring with his ambitions. "We need to change some things around here." Just like the man said.

Mountain Man said...

Actually I don't think I will be able to run for public office due to my intense drug and candy habit. I am unfit.

fairy butler said...

nudie suits for everyone! matte or shiny, 3quarter length sleeve or cap-sleeve, control top or low-rize.

god, i cannot get anything done at beige. cannot focus here or on regular life. who's got the adderal?

pd, it is sad, i actually have work to do for beige and updates to my ole website (sorely in need of a major overhaul that i keep putting off in favor of studio, drinking, watching this cop show taht i can't turn away from, the one with forrest whitacker, etc.) so many things i cannot do - like get a new job. f'ed in the head.

postmoderndebunker said...

I know what you mean FB. Just this weekend I chose painting over shopping for food, cleaning my apartment (it is gross right now) and doing my taxes. It's awful. At least I still manage to bathe. Which cop show do you watch?

fairy butler said...

the shield. i have no idea what channel it is on. last night was the season ending special so i had to tune in. i always watch it completely by accident. it must be on a lot. repeats.

yes, and the taxes. looming over my head as well.

pd said...

I always wanted to watch that, but forget when it is on.
I just sent a baby gift to a baby that was born in october! A little behind, yes. One of the things I liked about that Life in Hell thing Sloth posted was the afternoon lottery fantasy. Mine is starting early today.

krixfort said...

PD, do not feel badly. I have not sent x-mas gifts to the mixforts. I told mixfort that I have my own calendar which I follow for these things. soon litlle mixforts, soon.

pd said...

That's good Krix. I want to follow your calendar too.
This day is dragging.

krixfort said...

hello M & M. how are you?

randy said...

Mountain Man rules the ether....check out fabulousness @
Go MM.
