From The Daily Diorama

Sometimes I get motivated to post a daily photograph of something small. These are my visualizations and my innermost thoughts.

It’s time to leave the capsule if you dare…

Where does the heat go, when I turn on my tinny little baseboard heaters, and my electrical meter is spinning mercilessly.  I am just so cold.  With the expensive heat vanishing, so goes my motivation.    But someone who embodied creativity and art and fashion and music died,   And that was enough to encourage…

Hiding in Plain Sight

Even when you look around you and see calm and serene forest,     there is a black cave somewhere nearby with some wild creature watching you,  waiting for you to turn your back and bend over, so it can pounce.   I wouldn’t get too comfortable, if I were you.

Ultraviolence

I hope my head stays with me,   and never is it severed accidentally or on purpose.     But, it would give you a chance to look at yourself from an entirely new perspective.  Do you think if you could see your self in person, from a short distance,  but not as a reflection,…

Aliens and the Art of Shitting Bricks

  A few years ago,  I participated in a local group art show, called “The WEE Show” .    My former coworker/friend Marjolyn,  of Box Studios,   down on Franklin Street in East Vancouver,  was curating the show.  It was the first time I had even been in a show like that,  and it was…

The Afterworld

” The Afterworld, a world of never ending happiness.   You can always see the sun, day or night.  So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills,  you know the one “Dr. Everything’ll Be Alright”.  Instead of asking how much of your time is left, ask him how much of your mind, baby.…

Flocking Christmas

Christmas is a time for Tacky and Kitschy Christmas crafting and I am prepared to take every free moment to flock something up. I found these really campy DIY putz houses on Retrorenovation.com and decided to take a stab at this Mid-century house.  Very cute, and a very quick and easy project, with well thought out…

Quaint as all Hell

Christmas is just over two weeks away and I have a lot of growing up to do. Those two things are not related, just things to consider.  

Ripping Off Martha

I’ve never been a fan of copying someone else’s work,  but the cover of the Christmas edition of Martha Stewart magazine was way too christmas Kitsch cute to *not rip off.    The instructions in the magazine were rather simplified and stupid,  and I feel compelled to pass along my own tips on this ridiculously…
