Ahh, classic Spenard Alaska summer fun.
Archive for June, 2009
I’ve set up a gallery page for the lino prints I’ve been working on. Five nice 4×5 inch images. And two tiny blog card images. Like 2×2,5 inch tiny. These images cut fast. I’m glad I went for many small blocks as aposed to one big image that takes me 2-3 weeks to cut.
And I haven’t cut my hand open yet.
In The Box for the next two days. Wish me luck if you see me coming out for air.
That I take prescriptions to keep heart and brains functioning is no secret.
Nor is a secret that I find all these Rx’s overwhelming at times.
A new page, I Must Believe in these Pills.
Mmmm, not bad. I think I’ll keep it this way.
One more day on the job, then I have three off. Today I was in The Box. Getting up at 5 am sure cuts into your social life. Yeah, is there life in Spenard when you work weekends?
Ha! Made you look. LeRoy is my bike of course. All my bikes are boys.
I hadn’t showed him any love at all (ex. some lube) for weeks.
Ohhh, pretty, shiny, LeRoy.
The head badge I made for him is hanging in there. The human bones are tougher than I thought they would be.
The shop at work has been really busy. So I did him at home.
Working on a new block. But it is way too late and I’m too tired to be playing with sharp pointy things.
Steve’s into baseball, my friend Will is also.
What I notice is guys wearing weird shoes spiting chew all over the place. Balls are thrown at some dude wearing a Hanibal Leticter mask throwing gang signs in his crotch. So here’s a way to make a strange game even more weird.
This Baseball factoid has been on the frig for a long long time. In Fact, by Louis R Biro 1999. Brother Bruce said that Doc got called the ‘spaceman’. I wonder it there was an after game interview some where. Bet that was fun.
I have been told by both Steve and Will that “The Spaceman” was one Bill Lee who played for the Boston Red Soxs. I therefor dub Doc Ellis, Doc ‘Acidhead’ Ellis. No word yet if Bill Lee was into LSD.
