Dreams Can Come True

This is the miracle shredder.

A number of years ago, I went through my old bills and tax documents and bank records and medical records and all manner of personal documents, and I thinned the herd.  I took out all the old stuff I could take out.  And so I had a grocery bag full of personal information that I needed to dispose of, that I needed to shred.  I looked up document shredding companies and maybe I was overwhelmed by my choices because I never settled on one, but I took the heavy bag out of my house and put it in the back of my car where I would look at it every time I opened my trunk for over a year, maybe even longer, I lost track.  It could have been 3 years.  It was in the trunk for a long, long time.  Sometimes the trunk would leak, so the paper would warp up, and I found mildew on some of it.  The bag eventually tore, but it still kind of held the papers in one area of my trunk.

My cousin had a shredder, but he lived in another part of the world, and I didn’t want to sit in his house office for 2 hours, making a mess, shredding papers.  I looked at it and thought, “Wow, It would be so great to shred my trunk documents.”

I used to have a document shredder, but it was mostly useless, a small, heavy waste of money.  You could put up to 1 document in it at a time, and it constantly jammed.  I think I put it out on the street for some masochist savoring misery.

And then, miraculously, about three months ago,  somebody on my block left a document shredder out on the sidewalk for grabs, for free, voluntarily, with the capacity for 9 sheets of paper at a time.  I could feel the weight of my document bag lifting.  It was nice, a nice feeling of relief.

I’m not sure how much point there is to shredding documents what with huge internet security breaches in companies like Equifux and Bunk of america, but I feel that the beehive, the cosmos, Allah has blessed me with a miracle, providing me with this document shredder.  And I’m telling you this story to give you hope for the miracles that you want to happen in your life.

As Your Candidate for Citizen

Ever since I started running for the office of citizen, I realized that I have to tell people what I think because people like it when their leaders say things about problems in the world.

I think that donal trump is a loser, he is lost, he no good, I just read an article, an editorial that said the same thing, and I agreed with some of it.

I think he lost because he badmouthed a man who called him out on his reluctance to condemn racist violence in Virginia, the state in the united states that's part of the united states.  who does that?  somebody calls it like they see it, and then trump don't even address the charges, he just change the subject to drug prices because he know that's a subject changer.  but trump, he still a loser, reluctant to condemn racism, like when david duke supported him in the election in 2016 and trump said that he knew nothing about duke when in fact previous interviews with trump showed that he knew quite a bit about duke.

I think trump loser because he friends with Steve Bannon, spoiled white mannish boy who think he got smahts because he knows how to dismantle gubmint.  well I don't know anything about bannon, 'cept he worked for goldman sachs and was editor for the breitbart propaganda website which is about as trustworthy as my blog.  Goldman Sachs mony people think they so smaht because they can make a ton of money.  yippee, a ton of money, so f#ckin' what.

Trump do so many other things that stupid, that I lose track which help him ruin things if I lose track.  He pretend V. Putin some kind of good guy, but putin afraid of the truth, all his corruption and that of yeltsin before him.  he in so deep, he such a thug.

trump praise phillipine shitwit leader, duterte, who promote extrajudicial murder of drug addicts and dealers.  so sad.  trump praise this. trump promote hostility to journalists.  trump promote hostility to muslims.  trump hater. 

if we don't use our political power as citizens against trump's stupidness, we will end up with a stupid country.  so we must tell our minds to people and get organize and think how to make country good in spite of shitty president.  I bin planting no flowers, but I made drawing of flowers.

so this my speech I say to you as your candidate for citizen of usa.  please vote for me or I go somewhere else.

Paulette Writes About Her POTSU Art

Symbols at work.

Paulette made paintings that are of the current president of the United States of Amerigo Vespucci.  They are unflattering and biting and punchy and seek to tell some kind of truth even if they exaggerate and possibly fail. 

The top one of the orange hood with flyaway hair is an important work of art because it is so clear, it tells it like it is.  It doesn't mince words and it's really poetic, metaphorical and similitudinous and vacuous and incisive and links the potsu with hate groups who are afraid of people who are different from themselves.  A term being bandied about is ethnic nationalists, and this ethnic nationalism don't sit quite right with Paulette who says, "Them ethnic nationalists live in places where they don't see so many nationalities, or at least why don't they know that there's lots of good people from all over, and some people ain't so good, but Euros don't got no monopoly on the gooduns, so why you want to say they do.  Callin the kettle black, it looks like that's what's happnin.  Y'all need to get outta your bubble too.  Mebbe we get a travel day so's we can see how others live in the other places we don't live in.

Look at the lovely power couple.
The potsu and his wife smile for the camera.  She was a professional model, so she knows all about cameras and looks and appearances.  He's no stranger to the camera either, posing and acting on his tv show about firin' people before he got into his potsu role.  Such a brand making man.  Image is everything, or is it?  Don't look past the surface.  Don't ask too many questions about what's really happening or you may get past the veneer, the façade.  Again, the painting asks the question, who are these people?

Strop Conspicuously Not Invited to HSB 2016

The Band Strop Oakland.

Oakland's favorite band, Strop, did not receive an invitation to play at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2016, and they are deeply hurt and feeling unloved by the event organizers.  Says Paulette, one of Strop's members, "Neither Mark nor Mark nor I received any invitation to play at the festival this year.  They pretend like we don't exist, and we work so hard and sacrifice so much and are so well loved by Americana and Roots Music lovers that it's obvious that festival organizers are going out of their ways to not invite us."

Paulette's San Francisco Art Show Opening Aug 26, 5-7 p.m.

This is a picture of Paulette wearing sunglasses.

Paulette has been doing a residency, residing, making art at Hayes Valley Art Works in San Francisco since May of 2016.  She has new paintings that she will show at 456 Laguna St in San Francisco starting August 26, 2016.  The opening is from 5 to 7 p.m.

Our sources obtained the following promotional words about the show.

Paulette will be showing paintings of dogs, the Hayes Valley Artworks lot, and two presidents.  Also shown will be production art from the Jeffrey Vallance Interview Film, a painting of the Los Angeles skyline, a painting of a liquor store in Oakland, a painting of 22nd street in San Francisco, and her painting of a Thomas Kinkaide painting.  The paintings are a mixture of studio work and plein air work, done in oil paint.  Paulette hopes to show beauty in the things she paints, regardless of how unpleasant a subject may be.  For instance, she painted a stuffed dog that isn't really beautiful, but the paintings of the dog are beautiful, portraying it favorably like when you get the pimples taken out of your high school senior year photos.  She hopes that her paintings are lies that tell some kind of truth, like Picasso is quoted as saying except in different words.

The show is curated by Tanya Gayer and made possible by Emma Spertus, two of the Bay Areas top art people.

The title of the show is up in the air as this article goes to press on a big printing press that will print over 10 billion copies of it, but it, the title will be something like "Gemalde Plein Air y en el Estudio" which translated from German, French and Spanish means, "Paintings Inside and Outside."
