good news vs bad news

with 3 comments

bad news first.

the front cover of The Daily Mail warns

“you are fatter than you think!”

no doubt,

i was shaken to the core.

but yes, there was good news…

today’s horoscope was all hopes and affirmations..

and i quote…

Gemini:

The bottom line is that that you are the brightest star in the sky right now

and the person by your side is the luckiest person on the planet.

Your creative energy and emotions will be enhanced, but with insecurity.

It will be possible to follow your dreams if you have trust.

you’re also the best photographer i know.

(i may have added that last bit)


in unrelated news,

this is what i look like in a video game.

what’s a pinko?

sometimes a clever notion.

1.2 million hard copies of these were handed out in the triborough this morning.

someone put in some effort.

my favorites are…

“maximum wage law passes congress”

and

“public relations industry forecasts a series of massive layoffs.”

all this hope is going to be the death of us.

enjoy.

florida is a place.

leave a comment »

man o man.

is it ever.

florida has reaffirmed my love for the fifty nifty.

in a time of doubts and finger pointing,

in a state poor and dysfunctional,

my life has been saved.

and let me be clear,

i am no nationalist.

in fact, i’m about as disgruntled as it comes.

but i will admit that this last week has been a revelation.

…cowboys swamps applepie cowskulls milkshakes neon highways rodeos airboats budlight pickuptrucks monstertrucks mud…

proof is in the pudding.

10 best things about America according to Canepari

florida-331

1.  australia can kiss my star spangled…

cowboy steak.

grilled.

boom.

florida-37-21

number two.

that’s right.

they are for real.

florida-22

number 3.

camp.

kitsch.

quirk.

self-destruction.

excess.

neon.

weight issues.

pastels.

that may seem like eight things but it is really one thing.

it is elvis.

fried peanut butter sandwiches and speedballs were his vice…

what’s yours??

florida-1541

4.

the middle.

the conservative right.

those that voted for bush.

those that carry ak-47s in their F3500.

those that think luxury is new mudtires and a case of bush beer.

they are weird and fucked up but without them,

there would be no dialogue.

and without a dialogue there is no elvis.

and if there is no elvis,

then i would probably be working at a bank.

i love you conservative right.

florida-151

FIVE.

a guy feeding chicken to 14 foot aligators is so awesome.

i’m sorry

but it is.

florida-1321

6.

halloween.

it’s ours and ours alone.

and

2 plastic pumpkins for $3

is a steal.

consume.

newenglish-603

just like the conservative middle…

‘i notnot you not possible’

ask martin parr.

florida-141

numbernine.

brag.   bluster.  boast.  crow.  gloat.  grandstand.  hotdog.  prate.  puff.  showboat.  rodomondate.

(special thanks to thesauraus.com)

we do that.

in fact, it is one of our most favorite pastimes.

“bodacious. in your face..”

florida-18

and number 10.

two days ago i would never have written this post.
