Mary texted me last night – and spoiled the show! Mercenary Mary wants a pay day. Don’t we all. But, does she, and we – deserve to get paid for what we do? Am I having a sordid and dangerous affair. Mary could spell trouble.
When I beheld Mary sitting on her bed with her arms in a awkward position I thought of one of my favorite paintings by one of my favorite artists, Edvard Munch, who had been sickly as a child. I almost died of whooping cough.
In the pic of Mary with a ribbon of honor, we see a determined look. She wants to be somebody. Good for her. She insists I go get a job so I can send her – money in a hurry. Does Mary have a job? What doesn’t she understand about the name ‘Beatnik’? I suspect someone (older) pointed out my posts on her, and, they concluded I have much money, but, just don’t want her to have any. I told her I was looking for houses for sale in Coos Bay. She asked me why….
“You don’t have any money!”
This morning I learned POTUS slipped his evangelical buddies seven billion dollars under the table. Mary ended our chat with these words:
“ok I wait for the fast money to go.”
How prophetic. I am thinking about suing the church. But, let me try Mary’s direct approach….I am asking for someone to come forth and give Mary and I a million dollars so we can get married and live happily ever after. She is my Vivian and Muse. Below is an extremely prophetic post on the Wall Street Statue. I want to make a statue of Mary.
Mary, my darling, if your reading this watch the opera La Boheme and get a clue how this is supposed to go.
“We will kiss and there will be a miracle
I will do my best. I am going to send my books and scripts to publishers so they will give us money to get married.”
When I showed Mary a pic of me as a Hippie in a tree, she was done with me – for three days! I think I am Mary’s work. What she is saying, is…….
MUSES ARE PEOPLE TOO!
ok I wait for the fast money to go
My beloved Mary. The famous author, Vladimir Nabokov, wrote Lolita. He taught at Cornell when my ex-wife went there. She was Pynchon’s lover, he too a famous writer. Many people are interested in who Tom had sexual intercourse with, and how much Lolita affected his writing. I have gotten as much as 144,000 reads in one day. Let me go check my readership chart. I think you have become famous – somewhat! I can’t promise you. This is tricky business.
Study this essay and the lecture below. Be sure this is the crowd you want to hang with. It is only fair to warn you.
Lolita statue sexually assaulted! Kong……awakens!
“It was beauty that raised the beast!
Wiccan Conway is accusing Obama of cyber-stalking her boss. Is all this sounding familiar? Belle wanted to go see a show on Broadway with me.
A social media post that appears to show a man performing an obscene act with the popular “Fearless Girl” statue on Wall Street has gone viral.
Today, Congress moved to pass a record-breaking economic stimulus package amid the heartbreak and chaos of the United States’s ongoing coronavirus crisis. Meanwhile, politician Nikki Haley took a moment out of her day to use the occasion to stoke the fires of conservative attacks on government art support.
Specifically, Haley, who served as Trump’s UN ambassador until 2018 and is now a prominent fundraiser and Republican surrogate, shot off a tweet denouncing the tiny emergency funding bumps given to the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and the Kennedy Center as irresponsible.
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.
The busiest day of the year was May 9th with 1,453 views. The most popular post that day was Threat From Alley Valkerie.
O.K. Looks like I’m back in business. My ‘Godzilla Run’ Idea got me in a lot of trouble with my First Flame and the NAACP, but, with the making of new movie that pits Godzilla against King Kong, I can now see my Creative Vision come true! I’m going to make an Art Movie that will blow your socks off!
When I saw on the news the installment of the Girl standing defiant before the Bull, and the brick pavement, I was transported to Kesey Square, and the day I met Belle. Alas, the showdown between Belle and the Beast, the Minotaur of the Labyrinth. What are the odds? Belle’s parents operated a Labyrinth Walk in Eugene. Two years ago I proposed one before the City Council. Then, there is the rumor the City of Springfield (Sparta) wants to capture the Kesey statue in Eugene (Athens).
Before the computer, many artists and writer kept clippings in a file cabinet, sometimes, several cabinets. After these folks become rich and famous, the author’s Wills, will not mention these files. This is because they have no value to anyone – especially ones family – who have to confront the notion this is a test – The Last Love Test! If you truly loved your father ‘The Genius’ you would take these files home and put them in your attic or basement. Are his attorneys lurking about – with a bonus for the most Loyal One?
“Waste not. Want not!”
What I’m saying is, all my material on Belle Burch – is good to go! Belle, Marilyn, and Kenny could have been in my version of La La Land, that might have ripped me off. Not this time, because I am using a Fail Safe, I’m using ‘ Lolita’. This is a heroin that Hollywood would not touch with a ten foot pole – again! When I depict my Lolita as a member of OCCUPY, then, my storyline will be judged as the cosmic invention of a whacked-out guy who took one too many acids trips!
“You’re hallucinating! You have gone too far! No mas! This far – and no further!”
My newspaper ‘Royal Rosamond Press’ will run my script for an art movie as a serial.
Godzilla vs. King Kong vs. Lolita
Opening Scene: Wall Street. A bronze statue of a pretty girl appears before the brass-balled bull of Wall Street. Tourists gather, and take pics.
“Who is she?”
“What is she?”
“Who put here?”
A group of Japanese tourists push their way thru the crowd, they sensing a photo shoot of a life-time. A gentleman around forty, breaks out in a wide smile.
“Ahhhh! Lolita! This Lolita.”
A large pushy celtic wiccan woman shoves everyone aside!
“That’s not Lolita! That’s Little Belle, The Belle of Ken Kesey Square.”
Taking out her beloved red OCCUPY scarf, she ties it around Belle’s neck. She then raises her fist, and shouts!
“OCCUPY! OCCUPY!” and many join in.
High up in her tower, beautiful Melania Trump, looks down on the gathering crowd.
“The Lolita of OCCUPY!” says one Japanese man, who sends her image to his friend who is a reporter for the Tokyo Times.
Meanwhile, a Bohemian Scholar, Herbert Herbet, has gotten permission to snoop around in the old shed at the Kesey farm. He notices a book case that looks familiar. He sees a strange light emanating from a crack. He gives the bookcase a tug, and…… a whole new world opens up – like Pan’s Labyrinth!
Herbert gasps! Here are Ken’s lost filing cabinets. On an old table there lie a book. Herbert walks over and picks it up. He dusts it off, and reads the title……’The Last Acid Trip’.
Suddenly, Herbert jumps back! Something caught his eye. There is someone in here with him, some………thing!
“Show yourself! Who are you?”
“It was beauty killed the beast.”
The Weekly ran another Save the Square charade that suggests Dan Egan is out to “steal” the Kesey statue. I posted on this three days ago, then, took it down. The next day I made a video, I have yet to publish. Then, appear the image of the defiant girl of Wall Street.
We Liberal Bohemians can capture this beautiful girl. Is she a Kesey?
“Teach me to read!” is the new BRAND.
The PPS consultants said, “We’re going to call it Kesey Square,” and so should we officially and soon. Rumor has it that Dan Egan, of the Wildish Community Theater, is actively conspiring to steal the Kesey name and sculpture over to Springfield.
Why The ‘Fearless Girl’ Statue Is Kinda Bull
Don’t be seduced by Wall Street pinkwashing.

It’s impossible not to feel something when you look at her. The sculpture of the slender little girl in downtown New York is as defiant and fierce as advertised: her little feet firmly planted, hands on hips, head lifted upwards. She’s bravely facing off with one of Wall Street’s most masculine, powerful symbols: The Charging Bull.
Significance to the Occupy Wall Street Movement
At the height of the Occupy Wall Street Movement in Lower Manhattan barricades were put up around the statue to protect it from protesters. As the Charging Bull represents, to some, financial prosperity and capitalism, the act of barricading it symbolically protected these values against a movement challenging those ideals. Once the volume of protesters decreased the perceived threat to the statue was reduced and the barriers were removed.
Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture of a defiant girl by Kristen Visbal, installed on the Bowling Green across from Charging Bull. Placed there on the eve of the 2017 International Women’s Day by the State Street Global Advisors, Fearless Girl is meant to both “send a message” about workplace gender diversity and to encourage more gender representation on corporate boards of directors.
The sculpture’s installation is meant to be temporary, and is expected to stay in place for at least several weeks.
the Minotaur (/ˈmaɪnətɔː/, /ˈmɪnəˌtɔːr/; Ancient Greek: Μῑνώταυρος [miːnɔ̌ːtau̯ros], Latin: Minotaurus, Etruscan: Θevrumineś) was a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man or, as described by Roman poet Ovid, a being “part man and part bull”. The Minotaur dwelt at the center of the Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze-like construction designed by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus, on the command of King Minos of Crete. The Minotaur was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus.
“It was beauty killed the beast.” King Kong’s iconic closing line, used both in the 1933 and 2005 versions, was cheekily rewritten by many film critics to comment on Peter Jackson’s remake: “it was bloat killed the beast” and “it was overindulgence killed the beast.”
In the years since its release, those criticisms have grown all the louder as they’ve bounced around the internet echo chamber, ultimately condemning the 2005 rendering as a misinterpretation, if not a complete destruction, of the original film.
Oddly enough, film buffs forget that Jackson’s film was actually well-reviewed at the time, holding an 84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Now, as the positive reviews for the quicker-paced Kong: Skull Island have hit (some of which are taking swipes at Jackson’s film), it’s high time to give the filmmaker’s journey to Skull Island another look.
THE BIG bad boy is back!
Yes, that’s right true believers, the King of the Monsters returns to the silver screen to again trample Tokyo into dust in “Godzilla Resurgence.”
The pivotal scene in the film showcases Anne Darrow (played beautifully by Naomi Watts) performing her vaudevillian routine for the mighty ape. Even more than using the scene to define those characters’ relationship, Jackson is masterfully informing us — the audience — how we should view his film: not as lumbering and mindless, but as majestic and mesmerizing.
Every frame of this film is designed to lure the viewer anew into an age-old narrative and capture a fresh sense of a classic story’s excitement, which in the 21st century is no small task. Indeed, more than 80 years removed from the 1933 original, the modern moviegoer has become very much like the guests in 2015’s Jurassic World: unimpressed with anything that they’ve seen before and constantly demanding something trendy and new.
