Otto Dix


Today as I was walking from the bedroom to the bathroom I wished someone would make caverns and holes in my face and swell it, pinken it like in an Otto Dix painting. If I had my way I'd be the guy on the left. I know it's wrong. I just want to see what it would be like to have a hose coming out of the hole where my ear once was. Head shaved, stubble growing in patches like an unwatered lawn. Red and toothy, all puffy-like. I'd play cards with my foot too. I'd yuck it up in the dark with booze. It is like a vacuum sucking at your face and head in order to reveal your true character.

Anyway. Glitter and Doom: German Portraits from the 1920's at the Met, up until February 19 is an amazing show. Just saying.

The thing is that you disappeared so no one will know if you come back. If a tree falls, etc. etc. You suffer from a variety of impairments. Lack of understanding of reality can be considered one.

Hi and hello to you guys. I am not scared, I am just filled with puddin'. I have thoughts to share. Hi! I am zooming in on the molecules of destiny. I am one and a half times less pathetic than I was an hour ago (lie).

Dubz you gotta see this show. If only to honor the portrait of the nude red-headed dancer whose name I forget who died at 29 after stopping her cocaine and opium use. She was debauchery incarnate. She seemed friendly if fogbound.

Hey Tumbleweed, just roll with it. Reality is overrated...and generally non-consensual.

Wind on the Dustbunny said...

Who are these non-consenters and why won't they consent. What is reality but bunions on my toe.

Manfred said...

Bunions on the toe of the wind on the dust. This is so sporty I don't know what to do.
