New Picasso paintings!!!

271 Picasso pantings and drawings just turned up, worth 75 million! Unbelievable! I'm so...happy. They look great!
"271 Picasso works that were never seen, never inventoried - that's just unprecedented." It's a great, albeit shocking day for the art world!
For my world, at least.

What do you think? Were they stollen or were they gifts?

My good friend Kyle hooked me up with a pet corn snake, Dr. Sheldon! My house, "Witch Mountain" is extremely happy to adopt Sheldon. I had a pet corn snake growing up so this is all super nostalgic.
Tomorrow I have a show in Kansas City. I am decorating a law firm's holiday party. Over 300 lawyers, judges, and art lovers will be there!!! And saturday my sister is getting married!!!

Drunken Noah and the curse of Ham

Wait, let me get this straight. Slavery was religiously justified in America because Africans, as the decendents of Ham, were cursed to suffer after their ancient ancestor saw his father naked? Wiki Curse of Ham.

I googled that famouse biblical scene and collected some of the images.

Men clearly have issues.

After Noah's three sons populate the earth, young King David defeats the giant! This is one of my favorite scenes. by Dore

Jonsi in St. Louis

Jared with Jonsi and Alex.

Zack, Leigh, Ulfur (aka Klive), Alex, and a member of Mountain Man.

I'm not quite sure I fully comprehend what happened last night. My housemate Jared, who pretty much lived with Jonsi and Sigur Ros in Iceland while studying there for a semester, invited Leigh and I to meet Jonsi at his concert in St. Louis. We went there, met Jonsi before the show, hung out with him and the band, enjoyed the show, wow what a show!, and then afterwards drank, danced, and partied with them. Just us. We didn't get home until 7:30 AM. Not to brag, but Jonsi flipped out over my magic tricks and even kissed me goodnight. What!? I was so impressed with him and his partner Alex (also in the band). They are both vegan raw-foodists, beautiful, nutty, totally human, no super ego or anything..it was amazing. We also got to meet their opening act: a three women folk vocal group Mountain Man. Turns out one of them loves Ken Wilber, zen, and Gempo Roshi's Big Mind Process...we had a lot to talk about.

"I see you're colourful
I see you in the trees
I see you're spiritful
You're in the breeze"

May all beings be Free and in Love.
