The Resurrection

The Jesus/Larry Bird year is officially over. But as Dearest Cupcake pointed out, if 33 is the Jesus year, then 34 is the Year of the Resurrection. I'm back! (Let's just hope it's not the Len Bias/Reggie Lewis Year as well)





And to kick off the YOR, I sold two paintings in the last 24 hours at my show in Lynn. Best YOR ever.

Reggie Lewis was #35 so you have one year left.

Dan said...

uh ... thanks ... So, this is my Paul Pierce year? Does that mean that I'm going to get stabbed 20 times and have my talents wasted through mismanagement and lost opportunities? I think I'm getting a stress reaction.

ribs and beers at Redbones tonight if any of you parents and parent-to-be's get a free pass. It's Belgian Tom's last night before baby lockdown (might be your last shot too dewy24).

Congrats on the sales. I'm excited to see your show in Lynn in February. I looked at buying a loft in that neighborhood. Then I realized that I am not an artist nor a gay bachelor and therefore couldn't muster the nerve to buy a loft.

Which paintings did you sell? I'd bet that you didn't sell the "cheese-snack-retard dance" painting. Although as your manager, I would rename it "American Idol Audition" and get you a lot of money for it.

How long is your B-day party raging tonight? I'm peddling Spring Break until like 9ish tonight - are you doing anything this weekend?

Dan said...

I think I'm officially renaming that painting the "cheese-snack-retard dance". If I paid you $100, would you hang that in your living room for a year?

I sold the Johnny and June Cash and the Ani DiFranco paintings. Clearly, painting people that people know is a wiser strategy than painting pictures swiped off of myspace.

Probably midnightish. I'm pouring beer at a beer festival on Saturday. One for you, one for me, etc.

I can't make it tonight but there will be no 'baby lockdown' for me. I don't care if my kid is just in her Robert Parish year, I promise a michelada or makers mark to all visitors.

Dan said...

I should be broke in a couple months, so I'll be visiting on a regular basis.

I'm going to get a chicken parm sub and I'm going to watch the Curse of the Pink Panther. Ah to be unemployed in my mid thirties. it's wild.

Dan -
You're talking to a girl who drove around in a car with a Clorox Mop advertisment on it for 3 months for $700.00. Of course I'd hang CSRD in my living room for $100 cash. Are you delivering it or should i pick it up?

Dan said...

would you pay me $200 if I let you destroy it?

Carpetman said...

now you have to post cheese-snack-retard dance

Dan said...

it's this one. Kristin just can't differentiate between double-jointed people, half mollusk beings, and retards.

marshall said...

That one? I always thought that one expressed your latent desire to be a quilter instead of a painter.

Kristin said...

Since I opened that link and saw "Cheese Snack Retard Dance" in all it's glory it's brought back a lot of emotions. Most of them angry. I've been writing, erasing, and re-writing this post for about 40 minutes. GOD DAMNIT that painting pisses me off.

Jim said...

I was going to write 34 nice thigns about you....But all I could come up with is your kind.. Happy Sweet 34th Birthday......

lc said...

I'm confused. Is today Good Friday, then? I'm not eating meat just in case. I hope your birthday (Holy Thursday?) was ER free.

Dan said...

I quilt to kill the pain in my head.

Dan said...

Kristin, I'm going to paint you into that picture.

Dan said...

thanks, Jim. You're kind and you do a mean tollbooth dance.

Dan said...

it was a holy thursday alright. it was holy full of ribs and beer.

Kristin said...

Painting me into that picture would be the meanest thing anyone has ever done to me. It also sounds like the start of a Stephen King book.

Dan said...

it's tempting...

Sean said...

Everybody knows the crustacean-human creature is throwing its vagina, not doing a dance. Jeeze.

Dan said...

or its heart, smart guy.

Sean said...

The chimera's vagina is clearly not where it should be. Yeah, sure, it's clutching its arm to its chest, but my money's on vagina.

Vagina, vagina, vagina.

Dan said...

well, if that's your interpretation, then according to the picture, I think it would be vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina.

no?
