eBay Shennanigans

Good Lord, this is one horrendous painting of Big Red's face...

The real question is: Would you throw down $275 for this original oil painting of whoever this is supposed to be?

"Took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip..."

"The colors and background are all fabricated by my imagination. My inspiration was listening to the Phish's last live show over and over as I was painting the piece."

His imagination is not actually a part of him, it is a separate entity that fabricates things. This time colors were fabricated. Next time, maybe he can fabricate a better sentence.

It'd be much better if it depicted a Big Red original O-face-on-heroin, a la every show post-2002. The most accurate part of this "work" is probably the green button-down. EB

Coventry?! No wonder it's such a shitty piece of work. I'm surprised the finished product isn't a giant turd holding a guitar.

Trey looks like he's wearing one of those rubber penis-noses like Dan Akroyd wore when he played Judge Valkenheiser in Nothing But Trouble.

"Essentially I interpreted and converted the sounds I was hearing into colors and shapes. Wether or not I was successful is really up to the viewer."

He interpreted AND converted, essentially. I believe whether is normally spelled with an H. And no, singlefin79, you were not successful. Go back to your day job at Garden State Brickface and Stucco.

"The painting was originally commissioned as a gift, but the recipients chose apiece from my gallery"

Meaning, when the recipients saw what a piece of shit this was, then went into the gallery and removed the toilet from the bathroom instead.

Trey is about fifty three years old in that painting.

MattyMac - when are you working this week and does the Pour House have Golden Tee Live? Is there any Don Henley on the jukebox?

I am working Thursday and Friday night this week. Feel free to come in whenever. However, if you can make it on Saturday night, when I can drink, then the booze will be free. I can't drink when I am working, and I am not bartending this week, so I can;t hook you up when I am working. But feel free to come in any night. If it's Saturday, drop me an email and I'll give you my cell #, I plan on drinking heavily Saturday night anyway. And, if you'll be around Saturday night, there's a pretty big party that night too. If you'd like to join you are more than welcome, we can pregame at the Pour House.

They have not 1 but 2 Golden Tees, one of them is the Live one. There isn't a jukebox, they use iTunes with about 20,000 songs on it. I am sure they have Henley on there. I will try to find some and get it on there if there isn't.

I realize that you guys are totally kidding about the Don Henley thing. But, for some reason, I have been listening to the Sad Cafe by the Eagles over and over and over again like a retarted 8 year old.

It makes me want to smoke a doobie...

with a glass of red wine....

on my back deck....

in Colorado....

naked....

What? No. I never had a back deck. Nevermind.
