i am sure there is deeper symbolic intent here, do you think this might make john bobbit anxious?

I immediately saw one of those pod things that Alien hatches from. this looks to me like something that was quite difficult (technically) to do.

Ohhh! Is it hard? Or is it soft? Either way....I like it.

slothrops statement special, annie
something i see too

nice comment, slothrop. tho I see beauty in it as it is. something also beautiful about survival and the ways that it marks each differently.
The vase reminds me of a lotus pod.
annie- get your mind out of the gutter. you're blocking my view.

Nice bong, you make it yourself?

My first thought was "oh my, beautiful!"
Second thought: "feed me, Seymour." But more like a voracious baby bird/snail hybrid than a plant. Endearing

There is only one true opiate of the masses, and I am embarked on a path of world domination thru mind enslavement.
Please don't tell anybody.
It would frustrate my plans briefly and hurt my precious feelings.
THE WORLD HAS BEEN WARNED!
Think I'll do some black smoke and have a short afternoon nap now.
Ancient texts to read and experiments to perform tonight.

A nice bong Annie.
I'm with the coyote.
But it's one big sucker.

I was told I could find you here.
Good Lord, Groucho. And I thought times were tough. Back into the hooch again, I see. What in the brecht, may I ask, do you expect to accomplish with all this? (And to think that you told Kaufman that my dialogue was too literary and obtuse.) If this is some kind of joke, I don't get it. I'm afraid old age has made you crazier than a loon. (And I happen to have a loon in the small lake behind our property if anyone here is interested in checking.)
At any rate, the occasion that brings me down here (interesting underground crowd here, by the way. Somebody might want to wake Annie up. Her candle is melting) is that, for reasons beyond me, Laura (in one of her less salubrious moments, obviously) would like you to join us for dinner at your earliest convenience. As I'm otherwise obligated to pressing sartorial matters, I have made arrangements for Nathan to pick you up in his new ride and he has guaranteed me that he'll get you here as fast as he can. Just say the secret word.

mildly erotic...Or do I need therapy?
Posted by: ben | Jun 16, 2006 5:12:53 PM | 17
you and me both ben. this is so much fun i became speechless after taking fauxreals advice.
it thrills, the comments. sloth, i didn't know your vocabulary included that word, i am honored, (stunned)
i didn't really make it all by myself. these things do have a way of creating themselves (you know).
carry on, you're doing such a fabulous job i wouldn't think of mudding the waters w/further definition, frankly your guess is as good as mine.

Okay, if not a bong, it's a candleholder at Hogwart's.

Did you import it from Abu Graib, or is it just yr. expression of the twisted wreck US elites have made of what used to be our country, as well as the natural universe we inhabit?

I have found myself coming to look at this over and over again. I find it very beautful and strangely soothing.

I think you mistake the good doctor for me.
I make epic films for the big screen.
We should talk some time.
Yours is truly an epic story waiting to be told.

I want to pick this piece up right out of the photo and hold it. It looks deliciously tactile.
Posted by: Ereshkigal | Jun 18, 2006 12:35:28 AM | 25
I didn't tell you before, Annie, but I also think this piece looks like a stylized fallopian tube..and I mean that in the best possible way..not clinical...flowering.
...if O'Keefe had worked in three dimesions.
I agree it is a wonderful piece that I enjoy seeing everytime I come to this place.

the photo is a tease, this is something one wants to touch and view from different angles, etc.

annie - Sorry to not have been here for the unveiling. My SO said, "WHOAHO, Nice!" and told me to tell you one of your best. It's my favorite too. Communicates on so many levels. Fantastic! YOU have a gift.
