aurel wanted to do the show in a space she rented so she coudl avoid the pressures or expectations of gallery drama

and fucking drama-d the shit outta my life for ten days and were out

Bertie got dressed up
we had a great time
i wanted to say something during the everyone say something period but what everyone else said was so perfect and made me teary and no way i would ever speak in public while teary

 photo IMG_3166_zps47e0bda2.jpg
i had wanted to tell everyone the story of how Ben and Christina met because it is so happy making
whatever the opposite of disappointment is!

 photo IMG_3180_zpsbca908fc.jpg
The short version is that Christina came into Ben Jones’ solo show at Deitch Projects in Feb of ’08 and told me that she loved the art so much, it spoke to her in some deep way, that she wanted to go on a date with whoever made it

 photo IMG_3183_zps1d53c098.jpg
i said what if it was made my a little old lady? what if it was made by a deformed troll? she was undeterred

 photo IMG_3167_zps7ed147c3.jpg
i think what it is is that so many artists make work not literally to attract a date but to put something of themselves out there so that someone might see it and feel them and be drawn to them, and then to have that happen so literally is so moving to me

 photo IMG_3175_zpsf6767dfb.jpg
i dunno maybe i am in a “weakened state” when it comes to emotions at the moment

i’m not sure of all the negative human feelings whether disappointment isn’t perhaps the worst one

when things don’t live up to your expectations

 photo IMG_2667_zps6347ef8b.jpg
when you realize things are not as good as you thought, people not as wonderful, the future not as exciting

here are some details of Kasper’s burned paintings so you can see up close how interesting

 photo IMG_2681_zps0859557f.jpg
i also don’t want to let on that i am completely pancaked with disappointment because i don’t want to seem weak

 photo IMG_2677_zps05477baf.jpg
this disappointment does not have any element of revenge, it is not a disappointment that wants attention or pity
it is one that just wants to be left alone

 photo IMG_2682_zps45bd8974.jpg
also i don’t like giving the sense that i am at all disappointed in anything going on at the gallery because that is all so great and positive and happy making especially with our two new shows that opened

 photo IMG_2683_zpsdc5630d0.jpg
i guess it just wants the people who have let me down to just… ARGH!

 photo IMG_2688_zpsc5e0b86a.jpg
it’s a fine line with expectations. you have to live with hopes, but if your hopes are unrealistic you will always be disappointed

joe insists he just “takes life as it comes” with no expectation from others but how long can you interact with someone before some sort of expectation is created, not from promises just from actions?

i like that expression, misreading it so that love as a cultural construct is really what has let you down, its promises empty, its hollowness sounded

I like to tell the puppy that it is made out of puppies

i like to tell it it is made from other puppy’s puppies

dogs unfortunately are mirrors and amplifiers of our bad behaviour

 photo IMG_2578_zpsa79a8315.jpg
the dog will grow up disfunctional and only other people will be able to see why as only other people can see my faults

 photo IMG_2579_zpse733b063.jpg
i am completely oblivious to my own faults

 photo IMG_2580_zpse52a97c3.jpg
however i AM aware that that is one of my faults

 photo IMG_2582_zps620cd009.jpg
so how bad could i really be?

so many people stop me and want to pet the puppy and ask me a million questions

what kind of puppy
a pomeranian maybe mixed

 photo IMG_2585_zpsd0ff8c17.jpg
how old is that puppy
he is six months old

 photo IMG_2586_zps25bedde1.jpg
what gender is the puppy after i already heard you say HE and i am looking right at his peen
this is a male puppy

 photo IMG_2587_zps2bf615e2.jpg
will the puppy get larger
i assume the puppy will indeed get larger

 photo IMG_2588_zps2db5bbd6.jpg
where did you get the puppy
a shelter in oklahoma

 photo IMG_2589_zps63dcd312.jpg
omg can you believe somethign that cute was in a shelter
yes i believe it because i am the beneficiary of it

 photo IMG_2590_zpsf867451d.jpg
you must get this all the time
yes i do

 photo IMG_2593_zpsd87c28bd.jpg
he looks like a bear!
he looks like a koala!
he looks like a little fox!
oh that is so interesting

 photo IMG_2594_zpsa2ba3e46.jpg
im just kidding i really like how happy the puppy makes strangers

 photo IMG_2595_zpse3e383ea.jpg
but i am going to start wearing a sign around my neck that just says
this is a six month old male pomeranian puppy who will probably grow bigger and is from a shelter in oklahoma and looks like a bear and yes you may take a photo
