Heads

May 31, 2005

So I'm looking through this big box of photos and I come across this one.

I didn't think it was that great of a pic so I tossed it back into the box. As it was falling down I saw something strange. It picked up the photo and looked a little closer.

Yes, it was just as I suspected.

You'll see it under the table.

That kid with the banana in his hand has a second head growing out of his lap.

Yes Virginia, there is a devil.

Wesley Willis

I was wandering around a flea market when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned to see my friend John holding out this photo to me.

"Here's Wesley. I thought you might like it."

Awesome.

This Friday the 20th, Nick from the The Boat Lullabies and I will be doing a show at the Hideout 1354 W. Wabansia in Chicago. It's part of the the Gapers Block 2nd Anniversary Party. Come on down and you'll get to experience our zany first-ever found photo slide and story show. We'll have an old school slide projector showing some images on a screen. You get on the microphone and tell the stories to go with the pic. It' should be a good time (or a complete train wreck, it's our first time doing this). They'll be prizes and much wonderment. Even more wonderment than usual. The event starts at 9:00 and goes until midnight. We'll be doing our thing somewhere in that three hour window.

Hope to see you there.

Joe 40,000 Murphy

May 07, 2005

Well, I'm finally getting around to selling my collection of Joe 40,000 Murphy photographs so I thought I'd post a few here before they find a new home. It's some of the best outsider photography I've ever seen. Really amazing stuff. I'm sad to see them go but hey, I got rent to pay.

If you're not familiar with 40,000 Murphy, check out Bill Swislow's site Interesting Ideas. (check out all six pages on Joe)

40,000 Murphy was also featured on the cover of the book Create and Be Recognized. It's and excellent book on outsider photography.

You really make me happy just by being here.
Thank you!
