Crooked Beauty

Farther along

At least a bit.

I think this one is almost finished.

“The Embrace,” oil on canvas, 8″ x 8″.


Drunk History: Nikola Tesla.

My son sent me this link. I find it hysterically funny.

Frighteningly accurate in its depiction of Edison’s character, too.

Sufjan Spree

I’m not too easily stirred to acquisitiveness, but since I first heard Sufjan Stevens’ Casimir Pulaski Day on Radio David Byrne, I’ve become increasingly obsessed with this man’s gentle, quirky poetics. After weeks of making do with what I could find on Youtube, I knew I needed to buy some CDs. My local record store had only Michigan and The Avalanche (extras and outtakes from Illinoise.) I bought and am more than pleased with both, but was still a little frustrated that I couldn’t find Illinoise.


Imagine my delight when I found it on sale at Amazon for only 5 bucks. It’s the best 5 bucks I’ve spent in a very long time. 22 tracks, including the haunting “John Wayne Gacy, Jr.”, featured in Claire Carre’s Youtube video above. What a deal!

The singing sinks of the Denver Art Museum

Artist Jim Green’s sinks will sing solo, or in the round.

Sufjan Stevens

“The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself in the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience But You’re Going to Have to Leave Now, or, ‘I have fought the Big Knives and will continue to fight them until they are off our lands!'”


Happy Independence Day.

As Sweet as Candy

Nice time-lapse film of a huge mural recently completed in Denver.


Jerry Simpson

 Jerry Simpson is one of Denver’s most interesting artists, and a long time ATC trader. Those fortunate enough to have visited the place where Jerry lives know it’s like stepping into a large, eccentric work of art.
