I'm pretty bad at keeping art up in my home..I hope to change that. Major part of this the cost of framing. I don't mind hodge-podge framing, I just never find frames I enjoy enough to try to use them, or rather I don't function in a way that extends my brain into seeing the potential of any given frame other than plain black. Once someone else uses that frame that used to have a velvet jesus on a raptor they found at the thrift store, it all makes sense. But only after.

Whatever.

There are three main things here.

1) Amazing decanter given to me by my sister after we found it at the month swap meet / trade day in Scottsboro, AL (my granddad sells honey there. Shit is TASTY!)

2) A tiny piece of screen printed / letterpressed art my sis gave me as well. This is one of the billions of things I need to frame...not the least of which was part of her Festivus gift to me this year...two packs of RAD DUDES trading cards (circa 1990) ( http://cache1.bigcartel.com/product_images/1660395/rad6.jpg )

3) A photographed I purchased from my friend Bob Miller (plusbob.com) of this dude from his hometown. If he has this image online somewhere I'll CLAME it later. It's so symmetrical and off-putting in a way....I completely love it. Completely. The dude in the photograph is called Jay. He apparently plays various organ/piano style instruments.
