Norway in a nutsack II

the Flam Railway


the coldest stop on the trip


Kjosfossen, the wettest stop


lottsa tunnels


looky-loos


walking around Flam


then we got on a boat to Gudvangen


boat=naptime


it was “bracing” out


the whole landscape was beautiful and wild and intense


i liked to look at the japanese looking


the boat stopped briefly at a no-road-access fjord town where people are supposed to live to super unnaturally old ages
this is matthew barney and his mom getting off there
i wish you could see his face looked 100% just like him


this is what my face looked like
pretty darn excited!


pat


fossens


two fjord trolls


then a long bus


then night falling


then funny candy packaging at the local 7-11

norway!
we really did have an adventure together

Let it be booked with the rest of this day’s deeds

here it is, and here i yield it:


this barry mcgee piece was done a long time ago for a i think it was MIAMI VICE tv shoot, and one of the guys that worked on the shoot kept it and tried to get us deitch to sell it three years ago and we said no because it was semi-illbegotten but here it is at the

NEW YORK BOOK FAIR!
phillips de pury
450 west 15th between 10 and 11 ave

it is free today tomorrow and sunday and then it is gone

i went last night to the opening which inexplicably cost $20
but the money goes to printed matter so i cant complain


book fairs look like art fairs kinda


yak yak yak oh look at this oh look at that


except no celebs and fake celebs with lots of plastic surgery


these distinctions are unimportant
i see brian i see france!


look at Cinders ha ha!
i bought a Misaki Kawai zine from them


look at this thing!
we were really excited to see her, patrick most of all
FTL


this guy interviewed me for his magazine while i was in london

look at their new issue!


it is happening


there was a seperate room behind the bar area for gay zines, which was odd i guess?


got the new K48!
it is on my desk
tomorrow you will get “insider report”


am i missing the sexual pun?
i am missing the sexual pun i am sure i am!


suprise!

patrick chins the DADDY with scraped up knuckles and dash’s butthole posters behind him


dash’s dirty buttholes


etc


$50 if you want one


what what??


dash’s polaroid book was out too
congratulations!
tinged with having wanted to do this book myself for 3-4 years and thinking i would be the one to get to do this book until just now
oh well
life is life


etc
i cant quite muster nice things to say right now


who knows? if i had done it i might have said having 8 title pages was dumb and would have ruined it


thats it i think
except for


the cab
to take P to nice birthday dinner

the kissing

the kissing

the bailing out of jail

the kissing and the sleeping


and the morning commute!

Interlude


that was just me needing to post images online to show during lecture due to powerpoint failure
dont worry, i made those images somehow turn in to an interesting lecture yesterday….

so anyway, pat and ben and ara and i are now DONE with our Norway experience. we passed all the tests. i only freaked out at patrick once. we got black-out style only once. right now me and ben jones and ara peterson are in the lobby of hotel drinking beers and exchanging computer data via USB sticks and camera memory cards. and ipods if we can get that to work.

more tomorrow of some fucking amazing fjord journey we survived today

oh wait:


ha ha!

New York Scenen

og og og got an hour till i have to talk about that to Bergens and am blowin off steam!

hang in there!


ok we did bask in a little sun


en route to the Kung Fu Panda shop


then we did this


look! its the museum


patrick is the worst ever photographer he gets banned from touching my camera from now on


and he a compulsive scribbler


we were making fun of trolls


when we stumbled on this


back to the museum


later


though we needed at least one “pat by the window” photo in this country


so heres three


opening next

The black tulip


splat!


the last piece in Aurel’s show i didnt get to post last time
we had a photo-free opening it appears so if you werent there to see the huge crowd and everyone’s hot fall fashion, then you missed out


you can see meghan’s new supergoth jumpsuit teddy made but that is all you can see


i was so fucked up all night i though i had left my camera at work but then later when i reached “beyond fucked up” i found it in my purse and apparently took photos of things
this is where the night ended ended i think, at the Beatrice Inn maybe 4ish?


the face only a mother could love


these two damaged photos kinda cover it anyway!


time to go to the airport again


pat and i were so nervous we fell for buying novelty neck pillows


although his is kinda dignified i guess


in amsterdam


a cool article on my blog, the blog you are READING RIGHT NOW
WOW


five hours in amsterdam and pat wouldnt buy me the @$%ing black tulips i wanted


whoah where are we now


this is like 24hours after leaving new york we finally get to bergen

i shoulda taken more photos of us traveling with this ridiculous huge geisha wig
oh well
