a few things

smooth sailing so far with the move. the folks at pets’ general transfered my fish tanks over to the house about an hour ago, one of those is a 150 gallon monster..what a pro outfit they are. pets general is a family owned and operated pet story in lakewood ohio. the dad, two sons and the daughter. i will continue to go out of my way to shop there.

pictured above are the turtles on their way of to the turtle sanctuary. below are pictures of rommel in his new vintage rush “fly by night” shirt, then there’s rommel and the jo…the jo’s an idiot…and last is another version of the rose in a vase. i should have some available for purchase soon.

one problem solved

shout out to leo…leo is involved with a turtle sanctuary pictured above…i guess a bunch of turtles over the years have been relocated there, the water is landlocked so no turtles can get into any other ecosystems, which is always a concern, you never know when something can be considered an invasive species..and i know redear sliders aren’t native to northern ohio.

the native north american fish / world war II aircraft pieces keep coming along. 1xRun out of detroit is going to do an online sale like they did with a few other things of mine in the past. the goal is to have 20 to 30 framed pieces and then let them go with it…stay tuned on that one.

how about this rose? even comes with it’s own vase…still figuring out what to do with it / them.

moving sucks, but in the end i’ll be far away from this trash ass place the dreamers call a neighborhood….you should have heard the animals last night screaming and yelling back and forth across the street, peeing in the doorways etc…this place is reverting back to how it was when i got here…and i haven’t even left yet….it’s like i’m pulling out of iraq and the bad guys are taking over again. i was the only one in this building that did anything about it….good luck

ok, i can’t not write about this anymore…first off, i have friends who have beards..which they just grew in over the last year..that being said..guys, go to a barber and have them remove that from your face. some may think it’s fashionable, but there is a fine line between fashion and hipster..ever notice how many of these beard-o’s where their sister’s pants too? idk, maybe people are trying to emulate their hero’s…duck dynasty ;) i know a good barber if anyone needs one.

turtles need a good home

ok…i have my redear sliders that are looking for a new carrying home. they come with their turtle sanctuary too. i’m moving as some may know and i just don’t have the room for them. the turtles are large and will become larger. the pen is custom made, 6′ x 4′ – it is rigged up with a container filter, baby pool, one end flips down to access the baby pool which makes for easy cleaning….many pictures are in this update, email me with any questions you may have. 

there is a freight elevator in my building…it’s heavy.

i have more of my fish / WWII aircraft pieces up in the original archive gallery. i’ve talked with 1xrun 

in detroit and we’re gonna get a fair amount together and have an on line sale for them later this year. if there is one you really want i’ll take offers, other than that they will be exclusive to the 1xrun machine…i’ve done several on line sales and had an art show not to long ago in their gallery. class act.

4 things..very cool, very cool, very dumb, and something pretty cool..in that order

*ok…first off…a big thank you to commander Stephens of the third district, i complain / ride him a fair amount about what goes on around the building and i sure it gets old at times. my latest bitch is about the bad guys on e 22nd between payne and superior. i’ve wrote about it more than once on this blog, so i won’t go into detail today…well rommel and my walk always take us down that stretch of cleveland. today the police were mopping up something, i’m gonna assume whatever happen ended up with an arrest…things have gotten better on the block, people still lurk, but not like the used to..big thanks to the commander.

*ok….second off…anyone see the cover of todays scene? the scene is our weekly entertainment free paper, which started publishing around the same time wmms took to the airways in 1973..anyway, about the best cover art i’ve ever scene on scene today..they have a black and white photo from WWII of a soviet SU-122…i have one pictured above, thank you scene, it’s better than any cover i’ve done for you..rivals anything graphic designer pants has done for you as well..unless pants did this one, if that is the case, it’s the best one he’s even done. artists, add a WWII tank or plane in everything you do and you’ll go far.

*ok….third off..more about hate rap. ever notice the blare of hate spewing from their cars waiting at a traffic light or even better at a gas station with their car door open while refueling? they, they hate rap enthusiasts, won’t look at you in the eye when your by them at either those times? well i have, i always look at who’s responsible for sharing such lovely rhymes. they won’t look at you, they expect you to be afraid, but maybe they feel dumb when folks stair and they’re in it too deep at that time to turn it down..gotta save face and all don’t cha known...iron maiden earth dogs will look you in the eye, for their’s is a righteous cause.

*one more before me mates in iron maiden.. i have a new native north american fish morphed with a WWII plane piece..this one is 3 sheepheads combined with a b-25…..original archive gallery.
