squirrely hate rapper

well the squirrel is still squatting in my bedroom.

hate rap. i continue to not get it. is it meant to build self esteem? over compensate? or just display stupidity….reason why i bring it up yet again is because another hate rapper was projecting some fine rhymes as loud as he could during our walk this morning. the mutha fucker this, mutha fucker that, n-word this, n-word that, blow your head off with my 9, smack that hoe, etc….is he trying to scare people? i don’t know, he just instills animosity in me. ……you know, i don’t go around singing iron maiden, i must be secure in my manhood.

…john, who’s working on the documentary is across he hall shooting in the studio. i’m in my living room watching seinfeld with rommel. i keep my apt and studio doors open because they face each other and the animals can go back and forth when i’m working…my cat the jo, who’s an idiot, and dog rommel, who’s a field marshall…so jo comes slinking around the corner of my couch.

all low and sketchy, i’m assuming it’s due to the presence of john. i get up to get something and out of the blue a squirrel comes darting across the kitchen floor, that’s what the jo was weird about and that’s what rommel is oblivious about….i want to keep it that way too. i’m on the second floor of an warehouse building, the huge ones with 16′ high ceilings, that squirrel scaled the sides of the building and plopped his ass in my place. for almost 6 years i’ve never had a squirrel guest, a few birds, but no squirrel. so i chase it as quietly as possible into my bedroom…if rommel got wise all hell would break loose. i got him in there and it’s pretty scared, i have the window open but it just doesn’t get it, out through the in door…well he’s there as i write this, i’ll leave it alone till morning, if it’s still visiting i’ll have to go to plan “b”, which i don’t have a plan b….i don’t kill animals so that’s not an option…i have other animal problems too, my turtle pool will not shake the algae bloom, no mater how much water is changed and how much medicine is used, the water becomes almost opaque green in three days…lets see, i have a blind bluegill that has started to freak out and bang into the glass out of no where, and i have a large crappie that hasn’t eaten in three months….and the jo is an idiot.

ok…me and my pal Sasha went to see the new GODZILLA in 3 D tonight..now i’m an old school Godzilla man,  raymond burr, rodan, monster zero, smog monster, mothera, the 60’s and 70’s Godzilla movies …the stuff you’d see on hoolihan and big chuck, the good stuff, so i’m a traditionalist….not like the Godzilla flicks in the 1990’s and 2000’s. THIS Godzilla we went to see tonight is really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, good. none of that shitty matthew broderick Godzilla stuff..that wasn’t Godzilla, that was a rapture….tonight’s was Godzilla and it was really. really, really. really, really. really, really. really, really. really, really. really, really. really, good……for real

so…a car just got broken into about an hour ago around 2:30 pm (east coast time), right out front of my building on a bright sunny day with weekday traffic going by which is a lot…..that’s totally un-defendable…he was in and out in two minutes, that’s how long she was gone from her car…unbelievable, well actually after 5+ years here it’s totally believable. i think shelter thugs should be tazed on sight, no questions asked, they are all guilty of something…they just need someone to get the ball rolling and make it a socially acceptable thing to do…you know, i can roll a ball pretty good.

i can’t wait to move…i will be in my new place in euclid ohio by august 1st

8 tracks “8 tracktion” drop at noon

the batch of eight track tapes of mine go on sale at 12 noon east coast time. it’s a good batch, the feature image is one of them, click on it to check it out, and click HERE to see them all.

so i’ve had some drawing block going on, mostly on the playboy and eight track tapes. i’ve been doing fine on the music sheet pieces like this one HERE, and the pen, ink, acrylic ones like this one HERE, doing ok on the music magazine ads too, like this one HERE which features godzilla because it’s one of blue oyster cult bigger hits. the only problem with the rock magazine ads is the color i’m working on…for the most part. i’m writing this because i did a pretty decent playboy last night…check it out HERE, now hopefully i can build some momentum on the playboy’s. i’ve been doing good 8 tracks too like this one HERE, but they’re sporadic. i guess quality is better than quality when it comes to art.
