I am...
currently recuperating from my recent, contractual engagement at a local theater in New England. I play a supporting role in the re-creation of the 1995 movie Jumanji. I play Grumples the magician's gardner.

I might change my name to Umpanki Sawdust if Nancy Grace goes off the air. You bloggers and your empty threats!
About my artwork
Like rascals, I have no faith in them.

We have an ongoing off-putting bromance.
Artists I like
Nicole Duennebier, Becky Brandt, Hilary Irons, Matthew Ritchie, Carl Fudge, Mary Kelly, Sophie Calle, the Singh Twins, Jane and Louise Wilson (The Wilson Twins), Gilbert & George (TWINS!), Jenny Holzer, Ana Medieta, Paul McCarthy. Mira Schor, Giselda Pollock and Polly Apfelbaum are pretty good, too.

And a desert wink to David Wojnarowicz.
Uncle Knuckles (also known as poorpillowhead@gmail.com). He's a man that visits the library all day and can be accessed much like Google. His only joy in life is to reference.

He left a can of Pringles in my car, aarrgh!

Also, the group dynamics in the gay-identified aa meetings at the 1st Cong on Robles.
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
Anything at the Boston ICA!

Also, I enjoy watching Uncle Knuckles licking the tips of his fingers to answer his emails in a timely manner.

LTRs Behind Bars

Because so many of you have asked, I will be posting a photo of Unkle Knuckles/Grumples soon. Before I ask him to meet me, I want to know what everyone wants to see him doing. He enjoys cereal, Everybody Loves Raymond's Mother Figure, when the dog bites, and watching teens play candlepin bowling.

This will be our fourth time meeting in a seven-year engagement so please know his patience for such things is brief. He's also trying to write a manifesto re: TGI Friday's being an… Continue

Uncle Knuckles and Grumples

They are one in the same depending which cardinal direction you face or have faced.

Today I had to return(ed) linoleum knives for Grumples (UK: Uncle Knuckles? East/West). He also wanted me to try and return lottery tickets to the Nevada State Lottery Commission.

I gave both a good, college try!

Grumples Organizational Skills-Out: The Library Does Not Impress Melivil

My lungs are Dew(e)y.

I was contacted via text by Grumples. He wanted all of the cords to his computer monitors in a specific place in his storage trailer. The last box he sent has become a nest for the mice that were once living in the lower part of insulation that has fallen from the ceiling. It is yellow and looks like the great beast's fat. Gristle.

He did help me find some clip art of doctors smoking and videotaped Nancy Grace for me last… Continue

I like your zen zaniness, and, beyond that, the radical composition.
