Done Done

I cannot believe it is true but it is. The paintings left the studio this morning, I was there in the wee hours and then the early hours and then finally they exited. I could not be more pleased and relieved. There has been only one sacrifice in this unholy endeavor and that is my voice. I sound like I imagine Frogs should, I am in possession of laryngitis. You would not think that painting would lead to voice capacity reduction but think again - this is a warning for all you who are considering switching careers. Speaking of switching careers, Corny has an excellent list of alternatives for those of us who are wanting to switch out of the unwholesome bipolar career of fine arts. Here is my list:

1. Tail Grower
2. Device Holder
3. Food Weigher
4. Penis Trafficker
5. Swimming Pool

Krixiebelle!!! How are you today? I think you are a dirty Tinfoil Biter from the great beyond.

krixfort said...

I also meant to say congratulatory things to you MM, like "Congratulations!"

tinfoil biters of yesteryear said...

krix is not one of us. She has not paid the initiation dues.

krixfort said...

MM, hi! I am swell and swelling. How are your vocals chords? are they damamged from victory screaming after the relic completion?

mountain man said...

Pay up Krix! Maybe they will waive the fee for you special-like because you have bit so much foil in your time. It can't hurt to ask.

Thanks for your congratulations. I am repeating same to self in head.

mountain man said...

Yes there was an intense 12 hour long scream into the fires session. I believe there are embers still crackling in my larynx. That is the reason for the squeakies.

lupis said...

Congras MM!! how very exciting. I can't wait to see them. Are you drinking pints of malt liquor sunburnt and on the stoop?

i'm interested in device holding, i think i have experience.

mountain man said...

Lupis be careful with the device holding, you may overuse your holder and grow fur in the wrong spot.

peeds said...

Congrats dear mm. I am looking forward to the hoe down...you ho.
I missed you.

mountain man said...

I am a ho. I cannot help it. It is part of my qualification for Penis Trafficker.

krixfort said...

Device holding is tough Lupis. I am impressed.

peeds said...

Oxy quality controller

Jack Daniels distributor

toad like genital said...

Frogs said...

Frogs is clean, inside and out, clean as whistles blowing in the morning sun. The oily intoxicants are emerging from the pores.

sloth said...

Fck YEAH with the doneness, MM. Can we go to a movie now?

mountain man said...

Thanks Slothy!

mountain man said...

I am excited and almost ready for movie. Must recuperate from pesky voice loss first. Tireds must go.

I am done too...will someone take me off the pit?

mountain man said...

Burnt Kitty you taste delicious. Get back into your bun.

krixfort said...

MMMM, burnt kitty, you are almost as tasty as burnt-up baby. I am liking my fingers.

krixfort said...

krixdork said...

I am also licking my fingers because I like them so much.

toad like genital said...

w.w. said...

congratulations mm! i did not call the ASPCA after the shaved kitty post because i knew you were busy with the relics. otherwise you would be in jail right now. just sayin.

Mountain Man said...

WW !!!! Send me to jail anyway!!!! I want to go. Will you be my warden? We can have an affair through the bars. If you want. Or I could read your cards from my stained mattress as you gaze longingly down the dirty corridor, yearning for a better life. Just saying.

Corny said...

Whats with all this nob-thatchery? You want to go into the Penis relocation business? I got a funny uncle who can set you up good and hard

w.w. said...

i will be your warden. i like things done a certain way. i am warning you not to cross me.

Mountain Man said...

I like this funny uncle corns. Give me his number.

WW, I will not dare cross you, you are uniformed and in charge.

you know who said...

Jeez MM, keep it in your pants! I'm gettin' tired of this, you whore.

Mountain Man said...

I can't help it. It is my nature to be an abusive chum eating whore. Also I am a fan of mustard. My throat is killing from over-perpetrations. I can't tell what's what.

pd said...

yeah, yeah. I've heard it all before. Right down to the sore throat.

you know who said...

oops! I mean you know who. (not pd)

Mountain Man said...

Peeds you meanie. Call me and you will hear Frogs. Or maybe it's Ducks I am not so sure. I am sick as a fly on the windscreen, it is par for the course.

you know it's pd said...

It's a question of lust, hey?

Sorry you are as sick as fly. Have a warm elixir of honey and ginger tea. Good for all that ills you.

pd, that's who said...

I say you will be all fixed up by tomorrow night. Then you can have a black celebration.

Mountain Man said...

Peedee I am picturing you in a hair apron serving me this soothing tea. You have altoids on your tooths.

Mountain Man said...

I'll drink to that.

Mountain Man said...

Come here, kiss me, now.................

peeds said...

Yes, booze rots your teeth!

I am wearing only the hair apron (and back braids) and altoids. It is my special outfit.

peeds said...

Kizza me....

Mountain Man said...

Oui Peeds. I kizza.

How are your paintings coming along? Are you all finished for your show? The lilting loveliness is emanating from LIC, I bet.

pd said...

Ready. All small ptgs. a go. One of the medium ones has a red that will never dry! So may have to nix that one.

The shack was fun today. I listened to some bad music. It was truly the shack of shame.

Mountain Man said...

What were the tunes?

I miss oil paints sometimes but what I don't miss is the drying time....can't wait to see them, Meatlover.

pdf said...

Are you ready...The Boys are Back in Town, by Thin Lizzy, for one.

You gots to come see the big ones. I am sad that I will only be showing the little guys.

Mountain Man said...

PD after my opening & I move the studio I would like to come over. Very much.

Mountain Man said...

The Boys are Back in Town - I feel like you put that on a CD for me once maybe....

pdee said...

Where you movin?

Mountain Man said...

I found a really cheap studio for 6 months in Williamsburg. I can save some money until I find something better in the fall. It is really tiny, not the best, but I didn't have the time to really look. I have to be out on the 15th!

pd said...

Oh, I thought you at least had until the very end of May. Those F*&%$$#ers
The plan sounds good. You will probably be in PA for a good part of the summer too.

vapor eyes said...

There is a guy in my studio bldg. who wears surgical covers on his shoes (you know those surgical paper covers for your feet) when he paints. He freaks me out when I see him in the hall.

Mountain Man said...

Don't let that slimer near your ganoush, if you receive my meaning. He might circumcise you.

w.w. said...

i like steely dan.

Mountain Man said...

I like to be kicked in the nuts.

sloth said...

eye will volunteer to kick you in the 'nads, MM. I have been practicing on the babies, and your plums beckon so sweetly.

Mountain Man said...

I don't want to brag but they're more like lemons. Sloth. Please kick them, I deeply saturate your offer.

sloth said...

mm, if I kick 'em real hard we can surely make lemonade out'n them lemins. country-tyme.

sloth said...

see what happens when you blog too late???? you led me down this dark path to badness, MM!!!

Mountain Man said...

Slothers it's a light path to goodness. Yes. Violence in the groin is for the betterment of humanity. At least this is my feeling. Lemonade is leaking onto my night-trousers. (sorry).

Delights in the night to you Sloth. Pet pet, night night.

sloth said...

pets to you too, ems. happy dreams.

whore bearing toads said...

good night and thank my lonely angel wart that my genial disease isn't spreading to you .

krixforts said...

the sleeps are evading. good morning people.

fairy butler said...

congrats mm - i am looking forward to next week's hodown triumph! i took the motherbutler to chelsea yesterday for just a little while. it was not a wise decision.

The Gaylord Rehabilitation Center said...

Wo ist der kunst?

Mountain Man said...

Gaylord, email me at doodlebug666@aol.com, I will send you the info. I no have your email. Yes? Yes.

The Capt'n said...

YAYYY!!!
CHAMPION!!!!

All the best and love and celebratory congratulations to you, friend. Gree C. and Gaylord are the lucky ones who get to go to your opening. I am sending them as messengers to say hello for me. That is their sole purpose in life.

Your new career choice should be champion of the world.

Mountain Man said...

Dearest Capt'n, you are the dearest person, I was missing you like crazy, wondering if you had been lost in a vortex between the low countries and the west. I hope to see your ambassadors Gree C. and Gaylord, but I certainly wish I could see you there too! I hope Team Shredder heals soon from the sinus disasters. For myself, I am magnetically attracted to my bed and I will not leave it until I am ready. My beard has grown so long it wraps around my toes and I am accepting the cereal that the invisible monkey spoon feeds me. Do not worry, I assure you this is real.

The Capt'n said...

As long as the monkey make nice, it's ok with me.
