well lakshmi n saraswati go into a bar
no
they dont
why would they?
lakshmi the goddess of fortune
saraswati the goddess of music n art
if you ever get those ladies on your side….
what do you have to do to get their attention….?
imagine this supernatural guiding light
the gift
the masterpiece
the esteem
the kudos
the grace
the knowledge
i wish i wish i wish i hope
perceive the singularity approaching
tiny differences cause huge deviations
artists are born and made
look carefully
listen hard
go soft
watch out
easy
now
goddesses in some imaginary heaven
whose to say
bestowing their favours willy nilly
the money and the art….oh wouldnt it be nice
it doesnt work like that does it
its like
this
you take these ideals
fortune and art personified
and you focus on them maybe at first
breaking thru into fuller realizations of what they represent
let them in let them in
listen if they say something
its a subtle tongue they will talk in
you have to disengage yer mind
concentrate
but dont concentrate
wait
wait
patience
wait for patience to come
ponder the levels of interconnection
unlock it for yourself using the keys you found
ask the goddesses for help
it cant hurt…can it..?

    popped into jasperinas exhibition today n had a quick look …there was no one there….was very very proud to see the little red dots next to many of her paintings
    her work is very orange and red and is very uplifting
    magic collagey warm stuff plus classic drawings of nudes…a weird juxtaposition…
    hey jasperina
    youve done well!!!

    Great blog, a little bit of education too!

    With October being the festival month of Lakshmi, I hope she has seen fit to bless you and your family as she is also a household goddess for prosperity and well being of the family. With her four hands representing righteousness, desires, wealth and liberation from the cycle of birth and death, she really is one to have on side.

    You MUST already have Saraswati on your side – Goddess of knowledge, music and creative arts? She is also called, Vak Devi, Goddess of Speech, and judging by today's offering, it certainly seems like you've got her blessing!

    hello steve…been swamped lately. had a lot of catching up to do this morning. loved the blog about fame…fun, scary, addictive, and sickening all in one.
    i didn't get to make my silly rock list…so here it goes.
    in no particular order:
    1-david johansen of the new york dolls in his ridiculous "buster poindexter"…feeling hot hot hot days! really…??? tuxedo silly…

    2-morrissey dancing in any video…always with the button up shirt…way too unbuttoned! and his james dean obsession! and all of his clones in the stop me if you think you've heard this one before video…get over yourself silly…

    3-nirvana on mtv awards…good band but…bassist throwing his bass up in the air trying to be cool? only to get hit in the head with it on the way down. i think he suffered a concussion…grunge silly…

    4-liam gallagher and kayne west…for being liam gallagher and kanye west…egotistical silly…

    5-the new album resistance by muse. the most overblown band in the world. they want to be queen so bad they can taste it. there's a psuedo social, political revolution there, but based on the ridiculous lyrics you can't figure out what that is??? they just say they'll overcome and be victorious a lot…everything but the kitchen sink silly…

    take care steve…and everyone else
    mark

    If Lakshmi and Saraswati really exist, they obviously like U2 and REM more than they like you.
    So fuck em.

    Forgot to comment on the blog here:

    Maybe lakshmi n saraswati need to meet the gods of "chance n luck" n hook up with them to make that happen, lol.

    Yes, it NEVER hurts to ask for help, but if its for greed they may not answer, but if its for heatlh and not wealth they usually answer faster, maybe? I've never prayed for wealth because I would take health over wealth anyday…health is worth it's weight in platinum any ole' day!

    Again, guess those goddesses have to meet up with the gods "chance and luck" before they work it out ya know.

    …maybe those goddesses are too busy giving everyone their 15 minutes of fame nowadays with all the reality programs and such out there ya know!? They're both workin' overtime with people that do not deserve it instead of concentrating on the talented artists that do deserve it!

    Cheers!

    So I have scored a live bootleg of the Forget Yourself tour and I have to say that Cantaliver is fuckin' mind-blowing!

    On the IL front this Sunday we are
    getting together to drop an E as a band, our singing never has done it. Hmmm, looking for something to inspire us in a new way. Fingers crossed it goes well..

    Lakshmi loved Vishnu. Buddha, Krishna and Rama are incarnations of Vishnu. Hindu Gods would defintely like Sk more than Bono and Micheal Stipe because the latter two are bloodthirsty carnivores and Sk is not !!!

    Steve, chuffed even feeling a bit red in the cheeks to imagine you gazing on all my artwork far out… so hey thanks..and writing a bit of a review as well. The juxtaposition mmm always loved drawing and especially drawing the human figure and the paintings are my dreams world. I am compelled to do both.

    As far as the goddesses go I imagine I am holding hands with one on each side of me… who's leading who? I don't know but the journey is a truly magic one.

    mmmmh,

    I think I've found the meaning of life and no it's not 42.

    1.Read a certain panthers mangy blog once a day
    2. Take one dose of no certainty attached.
    3. Put on church Tee for funds to Boston Autism Society
    4. Book Tickets to SK solo show with Ricky M (must take credit card for merch)
    5. Book tickets (done) to Perth Bellview Amplitheartre in Dec for Church dose (must take crdit card),

    Cee now I know it all plus I'm standing and sucking air – it doesn't get much better than that.

    Cant wait Killer
