|The restoration of Chaulky White to pave the way for 3.3 x 3.3 = S.S. (as post # 669)
18 Sept 2019> R.I.P. Ric O... 1 of the best composers in the biz + by that we mean the way he arranged songs, every riff + fill had it's place. His lyrics needed help tho + weird that he lied about his age. Weave bin duing sum arranging of hour one this week, mustering to get an album to gether for a Dec 24 release... figgered weed put out a record every year on our anniversary, tho this year's will probly be more of an EP. The tentative title is "3.3 x 3.3 = S.S." but onelie if we can get 6 songs (inklooting 2 x ⅓ interstitchals) together. Our beder-½ (the vox of Sound ƒuries) has been in Buddha-pest this week, so maybe we shd inkloot the Hungry embassy in our next microcosmic walk?
On the casalingo front they was sposed to rip a hole in our roof this week to install an axssessible skylight bud there was a snafu w/ UPS so she'll halve to weight til next week. Weave bin restoring sum of our brother's art that we shipped (via greyhound) to ourselves from the west coast. There was 2 pieces that needed to be restored from wear + tear over the years. The untitled piece (all our brother's pieces were untitled) that we call Fe, or Rust, has gone back + fourth between California + NYC a few times + then sum for every time we moved w/in NYC. On at least 1 inner-city move we hand-carried her across Manhattan as she's rather fragile (made of styrofoam + sprayed w/ gritty paint that u ain't sposed to touch cuz she'll come off on u), specially since she's got a convenient bowling ball handle. Here's what she looked like before restoration:
Using styrofoam, glue, toothpicks + a gritty "liquitex" we fixed the broken tips + patched her back together best we could + then sprayed on a fresh coat of paint:
Here's what she looks like now on our wall:
The other untitled piece we call the Shiva log (tho maybe s/he's actually a budding Buddha or Bodhisattva?) was also a bit banged up:
+ this is what s/he looks like now (we took the liberty of painting the sides brown):
Kinda cool to widen our casalingo toolbox to inkloot art restoration + it inspired us to make sum art of our one. Weave been collecting sum things on our walks (like broken mirrors + TVs) but nada weave turned into "art" yet. B-sides the 2 above pieces, we also brought back a scrapbook of our brother's (from the mid-80s), that we took sum photos of + for prosperity sake wheel inkloot hear in it's entirenity.
