DIARY OF A BELGIAN HOUSEGUEST


In Germany I enjoyed the indignities of being teased by my host. One time he slapped me on the cheek, and I later saw that he had sneakily applied a sticker there. It read "CENSORED IN AMERICA". The daughter of the household was very strong. She could hold me aloft with one finger.

Was the sticker in German or in English?

Gone Like A Train...

First consciously saw JW's art on the cover of the Bill Frisell CD some years back: I remember that matrix of animal snouts and said, "Oh yeah, this dude's original"...very gratifying to see a blog. Hope to buy one of those paintings one day.
Hey, check out my blog for big Laffs...

Have you ever wondered if you appear in the dreams of strangers? Find out for only $1!

Burn the dollar in an ashtray no larger than 6 inches in diameter. Make certain that the dollar has no holes or tears. While it burns, picture yourself the way you appear to those who do not know you. Go to bed.

The next day, check the last page of your favorite newspaper. Your answer will be printed right there - in the very same ink as the rest of the lies and riddles.

Neat site, very unique.
2 questions
1. What happened next?
2. How are canadians supposed to burn $1 our loonie can stand up to fire. We would need to forge it. Too much hassle.
Go to bed.

Who said that the Germans don't have a sense of humus?

Wow, that's a great new picture. I don't think I've seen a picture of yours in such an abstract style before. Really great, the black background works really well. Two thumbs up JW!

Very far out and psychedelic! Like taking an LSD trip but without the bad aftereffects.
