JUST a few potato shots of how I crank out my ‘art’ (and things that pretend to be Art).
‘Crank’ being the operative word — ‘mixed media’ would be the preferred artistically pretentious description, but a helluva lot of in-between shortcuts and cheating might be a more realistic one. ‘Crap’ is perhaps more honest.

I’M not really one for naming anything that breathes at night, but it’ll do this time.

TOMORROW (19 Aug 2013) is the fifth anniversary of The Naked Listener’s Weblog on WordPress. Not more than half an hour ago, Life handed me something that most people in their right mind wouldn’t think of as a gift.
This broadcast is based on actual events.
Yes, folks, it’s a TL;DR rant. Skip it if you want. I preferred it if you didn’t though.
You could just as well call this post The Naked Listener’s Top 10 Lessons Learned From Family Members — because it’s that ‘deep.’

PICTURES of my folks from way back when — time known, place unknown — before things really become unknown in due course.
‘The Pisces’ with her Omega wristwatch, 1950s
‘The Pisces’ in a Hong Kong-style cheongsam (not a qipao), 1950s
36–26–38, so I’ve been told
‘The Pisces’ in Edith Piaf mode, 1950s
‘The Pisces’ and ‘The Gemini’ over drinks, 1950s
Them people had odd hair, odd shirts and thick eyebrows them times.
