Seen on a forum: “Life is short. Art is long.” Yes. After you’re long dead, that painting will still thrill, if it isn’t junk.

      Well, I don’t know. When I was in Germany the guide talked about all the old Roman statues that were pulverized for chemicals to put on the farmer’s fields, in the middle ages. And that gate in Aachen I went to, I forgot its name—it was actually an old Roman lookout tower that was going to be torn down except that a monk lived in it, and was an advocate for its continuance.

      And don’t forget all that art that the Moslems have destroyed, the cliffside Buddha, for example. And all the art that the Christians destroyed. And all the art that the Nazis and Communists destroyed.

      Caravaggio, Monet, Bosch, these are a few of my favorites. Modern art is laugh out loud funny since it celebrates lowest common denominator degenerates.

      Me and Ant, our canvases are the lithe naked bodies of young sheilas, mostly young anyway. Now they are trying to make them cover up and censor our art.

      WE MAKE BODIES BEAUTIFUL. What is wrong with that?

      Thom, there is no danger of the body-painting at Fantasyfest being done away with, especially since the wife of one of the high officials had me body-paint her. She walked about Fantasyfest, wearing nothing but bodypaint. Nobody recognized her. She told me that the experience was “electric.” Don’t pester me for her name; I am sworn to secrecy.

      As far as modern art—some is, and some is not.
