The Message is the Massage

Under the Sombrero again

South of the border where fat people pull over on the way to florida is the genesis of my most visited blog post ever, written after a stop in 2008 for an emergency massage.

At that point this blogger thought that he would be some tag laying down proper noun multiplying latter day Richard Burton the explorer or Lord Byron cataloguing exotic lands but the internet is an avalanche and in order to garner any traffic he found that there had to be some gimmick like north of south or south of North or as it goes a wordplay deconstruction of the geography of the locale of South of the Border

But of course the message was the massage as it is a kind of publicly secretive one—

When Donkeys Fly Art Basel Miami Beach 2014- Skitzophrenogenesis, #artbaselnaps, Deitch mistakes Miley for Kelly

December 5, 2014

When Donkey’s Fly image ( Donut at the booth of GióMarconi,  Milan by  Nathalie Djurberg) When Donkey’s fly through donkey donuts, giant rounds of faux icing it is not surprising that the art-world and all of its attendant bling so attractive as well a distraction even to those who are supposed to be doing the summarizing will gather where the punch bowl blazes as it disappears over the horizon, So here/there we were a motley crew; Urszula Abolik, Dr. Barnaby Ruhe and I at the big date the billionaires in track shoes running to collect watever they are going to collect and the famous names; Peter Brant 1, Owen Wilson, Leonardo DICaprio, Diddy (Sean Combs), Swiss Beatz (Austrian time increments anyone?),  Baz Luhrman, Tommy Hilfiger and many more. What was in store? …  And then in the words of Emily XYZ one might have replied with “I am going to the store I am going to the store”, even as Phoebe Legere says “art is not a combat sport”… What do I care?   i who am all washed up with wishes all wished out wish that my photographic memory would have brought it all together with art by doing my part. So of all of the art whats stands out for this coffee fountain is Stanton MacDonald’ Wright’s monumental sychromist canvas L’age d’or (1966-67) for a Million two at Frances Nauman (which also sold a Man Ray of the late actress Ruth Ford red dotted and then shipped off before the events demise) and a couple of works by the amazing Canadian sculptor David Altmejd.                                                        (Daybreak by David Altmejd)                               Meanwhile when it was time to party while drinking Perrier at the Peter Marino opening. as he took over not a piece of the Bass, but, almost the whole Bass.  And you were about to Bass out as the leather master interior designer who really just playing dress while having a wife and daughter stood Lordly in the most far away room of the building as the opening ensued and society types doted upon him. It was a scene from which I had shuttled from the BMW party which among other things offered ceviche and red snapper tacos. The whole place was filled with his art collection, his designs, pictures of his architectural commissions, leather trappings and even a wax figure of him in bondage bar gear. Meanwhile back at ABMB Baz Luhrman and his wife and design partner Catherine Martin co-curated an exhibition wit in the fair itself with Nellie Hooper celebrating the fiftieth birthday of Gallery Gmurynska. I who had missed the Baz Barney’s holiday window opening (for having to stop and zap my I-phone at apple and if they moved that sculptural bovine to the park at the end of the island then the Battery would hold a charge which is something that their 5S cannot seem to do and a die in there they already have a die in their batteries are always dying) suddenly found myself face to face with the sailor shirt wearing Aussie  and told him how I doubled my tips on the double-decker with a little help from his fenetres, and he said he was really pleased to hear that,.  Then I did my imitation of him which I have been working on it is what he says in this video which follows here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HttposHpZpU After exiting the Marino opening while pushing through the large strip of what looks like a discotheques version of  car wash fabric, consisting of black shiny plastic fabric separated like Venetian blinds and made probably to effect the supreme fetishists love for leather, this blogger entered the park where was happening the opening for “Public” an official art instillation sub-show of the ABMB spectacular.  Therein all of a sudden a large crowd under of the instruction of a pied piper type were led to a giant wood construct piece which it turns out had been created by the last assembled group the previous night.  It turns out it was Christian Falsnaes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygKKqusbTVs and yours truly got out in front of the forward marching crowd and as you can see got his rocks off taking an active part. A little later on I  recorded my truth at the truth booth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWbjTLffSys. Though private it was yes just to take on the moment and it was such a blast! i drank so much espresso that I visited the bathroom more time then a bus full of retirees in Atlantic City as I was zipping back and forth on i-95 to the lovely seaside hamlet of Deefield Beach. So the landscape was set out including the work by the conceptual giantess Marin Abromovic set throughout the city, including the one at the  Miami Beach convention center which invited you to just take a load off honey at her #artbaselnaps.  .Not only did she speak at the salon conversations station at the fair but she an instillation at the Beyler foundation booth which consisted of lying down on a cot blanket  atop putting your bags in a locker headphones on close your eyes and nothing designer sensory deprivation.. I needed this time out and saw volcanoes of hot pink from belly buttons spouting out. On one of the shuttles I heard a woman remarking that she saw only one Jeff Koons and indeed there were all types of works mixed in including where Damian Hirst with the pharmaceutical went gigantaform with “Schizophrenogenesis” at the Paul Stolper Gallery, London, United Kingdom  booth it was a lit bit of Nauman whose birthday it was on December 6th while the fair was with the neonscript spelling the name and the honey I blew up the prescription drugs objects,  It was titillating to the passersby Meanwhile it was back to the exhibit Luhrman in tandem had curated to see what he had chosen.   A whole spectrum of modern masters had been deployed from the founding giants such as Picasso and Kandinsky to later greats like Francis Bacon and Cy Twombly. Over at design Miami there was furniture by Zaha Hadid at the King Kong climbing the Burj al Khalifa, which had cordially invited the beast to Dubai.This assemblage is  by the London firm of  LANDMARK.

After all chasing around with the shark in the shark cage is nothing compared to the sharks who are sharking out here after all we have to save the dolphins with porpoise and all the porpoises ostensibly otherwise tensabarriers, weighted overhang bars, diving armor, spear-guns and becoming a submerged trophy hunter will never be enough to fight off thin linen wearing money men trading commodity in the form of abstract conception baby! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dswPW78FYBI inflatables are debatable Sandwiched in with what is non-equitable On the Road looking to find the next big bad art piece to get all upset over Schmutz: I say it is Schmutz! Schmutz, Schmutz, Schmutzie goodbye! Not since the advent of the first mixture of cream cheese with jelly! Not since the invention of cream cheese and jealousy! Its a tour speech in a garden which cannot be heard on the closed circuit microphone out amongst the surrounding flowers; tiger lilies or orange orchids but you go out to talk to Joan Rivers who is there all dressed up in black and white and that old comic killer Phyllis Diller and the artist Collette who would be emblematic of the blossom on many a night Thats because engine roaring i was motorcycling through a ring of fire in a previous stanza which disappeared to come back blazing within burning cliche language appropriated by plastic artists to exclaim a new proclamation on a variation of the very same thing Welcome to an art world or a world of art already filled with ready made victims and some victimizers ready with ready-mades or ready to make ready-mades Everybody ready, gentlemen start your search engines Inside the proverbial Trojan Horse A Chia Don’t kick a gift mount in the mouth Except that he is not my steed, Fetish objects, Are there any objections, to a fetish for objects insatiable for inflatables Goo-goo for marbles I will give you all the muster I can muster for luster and then I will give you some bluster Is there anything wrong with some solace with a fetish before committing a major crime? Object lessons in objectification Subject lessons in subjectification Where the subjects are subjects Subjectify my lust It all started with a plump posterior a round ass out in the suburbs whose curvatures would have been as if a dangerous road looking to handle turned around becomes an invitation to please You blindsided me with schmutz, Toots! Here comes the Rabbi, there came the Rabbi Back when it was even better than the real thing And years later he wanted to know Why Koons had to be so self-effeminizing But the congreagants purchased him a Pousette-Dart I should not have blown the way I did at you misdirecting rocket fire onto you from Gaza But then you got me with your words like we as if we had shared some long drunken evening @ the Plaza—- And now I am allover schmutz heralding some false biennialist Just because I got pissed and you had to find some way to take advantage of it Gem warfare its a Baby Jane Holdup I am happy to be offended Out of shape bended To make sure that the never ending Has never really ended Dead vacuum cleaners play docents Save your life raft A slap from 100 percent pure crap One hundred percent pure crip one hundred percent pure blood the inflatables, the incredibles the never ending never endables If I can buy a visual spoof for 25 million and sell for 35 I am certainly game but if I get stuck with the lark there will certainly be someone else to blame Jeff loony Koons Claes Oldenburg and Coosie Von Bruggen’s looming spoon Balloon scriptures Another looming Koons My eyes lost in a sea of objects laid upon the sparking golden lame mardi gras tablecloth: lobster shell crackers, water glasses, antipasto platters, water glasses and so on and so forth Skull and balloons The sacred heart of Jesus The Sacred Heart which believes in us Yeezus! They’ll tell someone else to ban you from the house but still take you for a drink at the bar inside of it downstairs The ever changing face of commodities and their transfers therein In a pawn shop I have lots to offer for sale but gold coins turn to chocolate and get eaten so the only thing the house wants is the the endoscopy video screen and cam for which they are willing to pay $375 And in expecting this dreamer experienced subdued joy But when the recompense arrives it is but a single hundred dollar bill and ten tickeTS for a big bus lines double decker tour in London, England to which there are mot plans for me to fly-Ali Blah blah blah! It is the only problem I know of where the solution is ignorance Book 2: What Matadors to you does not necessarily Matador to me Afrozen, a portrait artist says that you are fat and attempts to flip a commission Stop eating the Italian bread Or rainbow cookies in its stead Universal slut What that Matador was out the door Before David Bowie released the video for “Pity She’s a Whore” A mat and a door, a matador not a toreador Shalimar You arte gonna be a big star You are gonna go far You’re never gonna die Riding the the stainless steel Jeff Koons, Jim Beam train They are all so Matadorable No Koons for many moons? A Donkeynado is what you get When a huge sudden storm cannot get itself together properly with an animal in a dream And when Donkeys fly they are far more lethal than sharks There is a mule which has an island in the Southern chain off of and which is part of the State of Florida, Don Key Donkey Donuts! Ha ha ha Ha ha! Giuseppe Veneziano, Do you think tha the is speaking English Veneziano, do you think that he has been speaking English all along?
