Buffy Sainte Marie

Found a Bell Box with Buffy Sainte Marie on it.

I know I had this song in another post. It is my favourite Buffy song ever, with outstanding performances by all. It is one of my very fave songs, top 10!

4th Try was a Charm

I thought this was a well done piece, but there was a big ass vehicle parked.

I couldn’t get a straight on shot, and ended up with demented angles. Those are interesting, but I just wanted a straight on.

I tried everything… reflections…

Next time was even tighter between the vehicle, and the art.

Took pics of the cute motorbike. A Harley or BMW is a motorcycle.

The time after that, I was impressed with how close the vehicle was parked to the wall, without knocking off the rear view mirror.

Then it happened on my 4th time walking by.

There was an old, low car there, and I could take head on pics.

So loving the decals!

Lightening Eyes

When it is strikes close to home, lightening can be dangerous, terrifying.

Powerful enough for your heart to skip beats

Blinding

Numbing

Incongruous with the morning’s sunshine

… and we all know what comes after lightening

THUNDER

Every trick in the book,

All that he can find,

To make you laugh so hard you cry, and blow your mind,

Yet, just when you think you have his hysterical humour number down, he dazzles you with: a serious in depth book, movie, music, artist, video game or sports review!

I, the Queen of Hearts, hereby charge the esteemed editor of Professional MoronMr. Wapojif, (aka ‘Oron, so nicknamed by Resa & ‘Olly – ‘Ouse of ‘Eart)

with recipe crimes involving Marmite and Bovril!

Don’t let his charm and smooth talking ways make you pick any number, say a two,

He’ll always have an Ace up his sleeve!

You never know what you’ll find in an alley. Look, I found a paste-up of a promo shot of The Beach Boys taken in Manchester Sq. London, 1964, a mere 4 hours from Manchester U.K.

‘Oron, don’t go anywhere! In honour of this startling happening, ‘Olly has selected this Beach Boys song, especially for you.

Scheheraholly

Just because I’ve walked through an alley 1000 times, doesn’t mean I won’t find something new.

…and so, out doing errands, I take the alley…

… and find Scheheraholly.

Frida Kahlo Mash Up?

I became very confused when I found this illustration of Frida Kahlo in the street.

You see, she’s wearing a daft punk t-shirt, and has tattoos. Did she have tattoos? I don’t think so!

What’s a daft punk? There was no shop or restaurant nearby, that was named daft punk. Good thing, because how dare they use her image to promote themselves!

Turns out daft punk is a band. Also, turns out that the piece is by an artist named Fabian Ciraolo. He does illustrations that mash up old and new pop culture. I’m not sure what I think, but I am provoked.
