Finally found a website that satisfies my need for slang
It’s raining like a pissing cow
It’s raining old women with clubs
Those were all different countries’ translations for “raining cats and dogs”
Dressed up like a sore finger!
apparently that means dressed up nice
All mouth and no trousers
(all talk no action)
Eating dried apples
that one means to be pregnant
look at this painting he just left one boob totally hanging out, how is that ok?
Couldn’t sell a statue to a pigeon
isnt it weird to think that the ocean used to have stuff in it?
Make it moo
(put some milk in my coffee)
A Chicago pineapple
The clean potato
(on the straight and narrow path)
(making out! yay i love this one)
(a letter or note from your sweetheart)
(not a bad threesome, just means cold as in you have to sleep between two dogs, which i guess WOULD be a pretty bad threesome)
Mutton dressed as lamb
(an old lady all tarted up)
All his geese are swans
Acknowledge the corn!
(wait i forgot this one)
(i had to google it: By folk tale, attributed to an instance of a man who stole several horses and the corn to feed them but in court only admitted to stealing the corn. thus: acknowledge defeat and admit to a mistake, cop a plea)
Dining room chairs
(teeth. i thought that was pretty clever)
The big white telephone
Have a hairy canary
Take the number 11 bus
(to walk somewhere, legs look like 11 i guess?)
these are fun these are codes people would write on an envelope to their girlfriend:
BURMA – Be Undressed, Ready My Angel
HOLLAND – Hope Our Love Lasts and Never Dies
“alewife” is a really good word in and of itself
LYKAH – Leave Your Knickers At Home
NORWICH – Knickers Off And Ready When I Come Home
POLO – Pants Off, Legs Open
(photo is me driving big truck up to RI and Boston and so grumpy probably not good caption for this, no)
SWANK – Sealed With A Nice Kiss
SWALCAKWS – Sealed With A Lick ‘Cos A Kiss Won’t Stick
so i drove up some crates to Ara to visit him and also

i think that was the first show i got to curate at deitch 2004 or so
they were cranking out the pinwheels as a collector commission

this is polenta fries on steamed mussels
ara collects and restores vintage pinballs
then in Boston had a great time at the ICA!
this is dianna molzan
they had a sorta mini “xstraction” show up
not sure how she fits in
but this makes me think of “Pinkberry”
a chain i am sure is successful because of the subconscious nipple thoughts
they had a great small mary reid kelley show up too
the Barry McGee retrospective
the reason for my etre
the caption for all of these will be “yay!”
the guy was like “oh this is so clever i never actually thought about how these guys carry the paint that they need”

dash was so mad about this photo
