Next month's show is "Opulent Decay" featuring Joshua Petker, Shawn Ferris, and Alice Tippet. Here is one of Alice Tippet's macabre little watercolors...

I figured I'd better cram some animal goodness in here- so without further adeu...

Here is a cat eating a hot dog.

Here is a cat about to eat a different kind of dog. I'm guessing there's going to be a short shrill yelp here any minute.

I don't think I need to tell you what this is!

If you are bored at work you probably should look at this excellent list of the 100 Greatest Monsters of All Time. Includes sleestaks, Vampira, Mothra, Tor Johnson, and the Killer Klowns From Outer Space among the usual suspects.

Saatchi's 12 million dollar Damian Hirst "art piece" of a shark in formaldehyde is rotting. I find that strangely amusing comment on the bloated high art world.

This dog was sitting in a car outside the gallery. I think this dog definitely needs it's own website.

Words and terms I need never hear again:

1. "Snark" God that word is old and busted
2. "holding court" How hackneyed can you get?
3. Anything with "Hilton" attached to it. Just hideous.
4. (art term) "The New Camp" wtf does that even mean? Atrocious.
5. Blank is the new blank, said in an ernest manner. Repulsive.
6. "jumped the shark" WAAAY too VH1.
7. "Awww, HEY-ELL no!" (Usually said in a Will Smith movie, or one of Jerry Springer's guests) Ghastly.

and finally...
8. Cankle - Which should be a word I love, but don't. Carbuncle is still ok.

I'd just like to say this is possibly the best sentence I've read in a long time:

"In an unfortunate turn of events at last night's Golden Globes awards ceremony, Paula Abdul's right breast slowly became sentinent, oozed out of her dress, turned feral, and ate William Shatner."

Here is a page of links for the "womanly arts"- cooking, sewing, crafts, and gardening- all turned on it's head and reclaimed by hip chicks. Completely awesome.

The "Burnout Network" opening was a big success. There was a big article about the show in Saturday's Seattle P.I. Pix to come....
