Day 1 of installation started today

Day 1 of installation started today. We dropped off a giant SUV full of tools and tape, then went to Home Depot to buy 80 feet of lumber and trim. Files are going to the printer in the AM and then we start making the Stuart Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens a lot more colorful in the front window area.
Here is the info – I’ll post it again with some photos, but mark your calendars for Sunday August 13, or anytime before December 3rd.
The Sturt Haaga Gallery’s final exhibition of 2017 is titled ELEMENTAL | Marking Time and it will present the works by contemporary artists who are working with specific focus on this aspect on time as an essential component. There are time-based art forms such as performance, images moving in film or digital, and music that act only through a temporal unfolding. Other artists foreground their own intensive labor in creating a work, or sequences of related work or works that are produced through long term processes or even set out work done in explicit temporal gyrations (through repetition and permutation) in order to create for the viewer an almost time-lapse perception of how their work comes to be. As we engage with these artworks, time is being marked off much in the same way a garden grows in cycles, and it is only over the course of time that one sees this evolution and the artwork is completed. ELEMENTAL | Marking Time invites visitors to consider the moment by moment, step by step, mark by mark of an additive process that marks the passage of time, whether in the life cycles of the Gardens or in the process of art making. Artists included in ELEMENTAL | Marking Time are: Nancy Cahill Baker, Jim Campbell, Russell Crotty, Megan Geckler, Peter Greco, Kate Johnson, Nancy Kyes, Kristi Lippire, Sandeep Mukherjee, Alan Nakagawa, Joan Perlman, Pat Pickett, Joan Tanner, Samira Yamin, Jody Zellen.

At times it feels like with Trump, we aren’t so much leaping into an unprecedented future as doing a rapid rewind of the past, going backwards and hitting all the hits in doubletime. We’ve flown through Jackson and now are reaching Jefferson, second inaugural: “During this course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety. They might, indeed, have been corrected by the wholesome punishments reserved to and provided by the laws of the several States against falsehood and defamation, but public duties more urgent press on the time of public servants, and the offenders have therefore been left to find their punishment in the public indignation.”

True West: Sam Shepard on the greatest generation (H/t Jeremy Kessler):
“My dad came from an extremely rural farm community . . . and the next thing he knows he’s flying B-24s over the South Pacific, over Romania, dropping bombs and killing people he couldn’t even see . . . . These men returned from this heroic victory . . . and were devastated in some basic way . . . that’s mysterious still. . . . Those Midwestern women of the forties suffered an incredible psychological assault [as a result]. . . . While growing up, I saw that assault over and over again, and not only in my own family.”

I was going through some files when I found a LOT of artist-designed stamps including John Baldessari, Deborah Flynn, Eileen Cowin, Cecelia Conduit, Jerry Crimmins, Bart Parker, Ken White, Rebecca Michaels, Eric Renner, Robert Warhover, Elisa Tenachel, — they must be around 20 years old. Anyone know anything about these? I am all ears!

Malia,
Thank you for telling me how useful and helpful and everything that I was from conception to birth, but the truth is baby, it was you that made it all so smooth, magical and manageable.
I love you. I have never been happier in my entire 36 years on this earth, and the reason why, is spelled Y-O-U!
Love,
A very happy new daddy and hubby

Malia: Hi Daddy

Malia: Hi Daddy. It’s me Cash. I love you and I hope you are having fun with my big brother this weekend.
MJ: I love you Malia. Thank you for being so flexible with things, and for being so sweet.
Daddy loves you and thinks about you all the time Cash. I’ll see you on monday big guy!

You know you live a different kind of life from most, when your ex wants to take your kid to a child therapist, and this is 1 of the 7 planned emails…

You know you live a different kind of life from most, when your ex wants to take your kid to a child therapist, and this is 1 of the 7 planned emails that is going to be sent to the therapist, on my behalf, and I have not met or spoke with this person yet.
To make things worse, they also sent this doctor screenshots of her arrest records, liens, eviction notices, judgments, and back tax issues, to see if there will be any issues in the treatment of my kid. Again, I haven’t even had a chance to talk to this person yet. The friggin child counselor is going to need counseling after all of this.
Note 1. If you think this is bad, I wish you could see the pre-written jury selection type of questions I or MJ2 is supposed to ask this lady.
Note 2. I changed the name of the Doctor and replaced my son’s name with +1. (I want to make sure I don’t violate any divorce/custody agreements.)
Dr. Playgroup,

MJ: You guys sure as shit better show me some love after the stunt yall pulled on me at the hospital, when the twins were born

MJ: You guys sure as shit better show me some love after the stunt yall pulled on me at the hospital, when the twins were born. These shit heads(that I love), set me up good after Malia gave birth to the twins.
My ex-wife had scary postpardum depression, and the knuckle heads who did the MJ love posts today, had Malia act like she had horrible postpardum. Long story short, Malia went fake postpardum depression batshit crazy on me at the hospital, and scared me half to death. Not funny! (It is looking back on it now though.)
To Kevin: You are to kind my friend. I always enjoy when you visit, and the old “MJ The Terrible” house looks great doesn’t it? It looks completely different after the whole house makeover inside.
To Malia: Are you sure I’m an amazing husband baby? Gotye may disagree. (Ha! Ha!) I love you to the moon and back baby cakes.
To “The BABs”(BABB and BAAB): You two sure do make it easy for me to look like a genius with all of the cutting edge, game-changing things that you do, and give me the credit for. (SHHH! Don’t tell anybody that you guys are secretly the brains of the operation, ok?)
To Chris: No apology necessary. I know what happened. Dubs told you she told you we were sleeping together to make you jealous, so you would pay more attention to her. Don’t worry about it Chris. I know Dubs is the modern day Madusa. I love you man! It’s like you said at our appointment with Dr. T the other day- “We have different birth mothers, but we have the same rebirth mother. We love you birth mom’s and rebirth mom!
Dr. Deb, I decided that I do want to see the accelerated brain function mortality curve chart. I guess it is better to know what to expect, then to be surprised if something happens. If the test doesn’t show me living until at least all three of my kiddos graduate from high school….I want a retest!
To Dubs: I didn’t re-up for 5 more years because I was forced to. I signed up for 5 more years, because I want to lock you into the Walmart Royce City Rumble Rematch! Before you told everybody that you were old and bitter today, and likely going through a witch midlife crisis, a lot of Masters of Money fans wrote in, saying- ” I can’t believe you took a swing at that beautiful little girl.” Now they know you aren’t a beautiful little girl, so I think that right there alone is enough that we should have a rematch. Before everyone thought I wanted to hit “pretty little Brittany”. Now they know I would never hit “pretty little Brittany”. I want to hit bulldozer beast Brittany. Big difference.
Side note- I would never hit a woman, but Dubs is like that WWE wrestler Chyna. A woman, but ou know what I’m saying.
Dubs, in all sincerity, I need you. I know you care about me and my family. I have gone back through a lot of the pictures that I took and that were taken of me over the last 5 years, and you are in the background of a lot of them. You are always there. I want you on that wall! I need you on that wall!- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hopNAI8Pefg
Side note- Dubs is just like the Jack Nicolas character, and may or may not also have a penis, just like the character.
To all of you MJ love posters from today: I have accepted the fact that we are all one big dysfunctional family at this point.
I owe you guys my life, and I am so grateful that you are willing to share yours with me as well.
Love,
MJ

I am not going to be the only one who doesn’t say at least something

I am not going to be the only one who doesn’t say at least something.
MJ:
I am sorry I beat your ass in the parking lot at Walmart in Royce City.
Thank you for letting me relive my 20’s through all of the pictures of me in my younger days on the internet.
As most of you know, throughout MJ’s divorce, I posed as his mistress, to throw everyone who was trying to dig deeper into his life off, while he was recovering at Malia and his house up in Bethesda.
To this day, I can’t believe Gotye never tried to track me down. She would have found out you were one hell of a husband and father. I was prepared to tell her everything. I was kind of hoping instead of her wanting to know more about our fake affair, she would take a swing at me. I would love to ground and pound that evil bitch. Not a threat Gotye. Don’t mess with MJ over this. Of course, if you ever wanted to take a swing at me, I am okay with it though. :)
You would figure she would have tried to look for a smoking gun against you, but I think she thought she had you by the balls without it. No one likes her MJ. You can be an asshole sometimes. She is a bitch all the time.
Here is me today and me from 1999. I have done my best to protect you and keep you out of trouble MJ.
It breaks my heart we dropped the ball when you and Malia got jumped at the BQHACRA pool. If Malia would have lost the twins, I don’t know what I would have done. Probably died of heartbreak.
In the coming years, I promise I will give you, Malia, +1, Cash and LIz, my best.
Dont let MJ fool you when he acts like he hates me. He just signed a deal that keeps me on his off body detail for the next 5 years. You better not try to claim you were forced to do it either MJ!
MJ is like the genius younger brother I never had. I get to pick on him and protect him at the same time.
Love and respect,
Dubs (My real name is not Brittany either. I don’t know where MJ came up with that name.)

Chris(MJ2): I don’t know if this is MJ love, but I’m sorry MJ

Chris(MJ2): I don’t know if this is MJ love, but I’m sorry MJ. On Vday 2015 when MJ’s subdural hematoma ruptured, I was the cause of it, not MJ’s little boy.
I thought MJ was sleeping with my girlfriend at the time, the one referred to as Dubs on here. I found out later he wasn’t, but the damage was already done.
MJ was coming back through the tunnel under his house, and I hit him in the head multiple times with Gotye’s metal Tae Bo workout stick.
The tough SOB/loving father that he is, he got up, got a shower in the make shift shower under the ground floor double oven at his house, and went upstairs to play with his boy before he went to sleep that night.
Everybody thinks MJ’s boy hitting him in the head with the toy firetruck in this picture was the cause of the rupture, but it wasn’t. I was the reason MJ’s (SH) ruptured and caused all of this.
I was wrong about you MJ. I know I was the cause of your divorce and everything related. I am very sorry for what I did.
I don’t know why you never said anything to opcentcom. You could have gotten me fired, but you didn’t. Thank you.
Forever in your debt,
Chris
