Welcome to MMXX

Oso mentioned Peter Hurd paintings the other day and I checked him out. Interesting guy who moved to New Mexico and painted the shit out of it. Ever since Mr Chumpo got busy with other stuff and left a giant art-shaped hole in our blog I’ve missed our art posts. AoS and the WSJ have occasional art posts where the painting is discussed in terms of the painter, the times and the symbolism involved with it. I never had to take an art appreciation class in college so a lot of this stuff is over my head. For the most part I know what I like but when I take the time to read about a particular painting or other artwork I often appreciate it far more than I realized on first glance.

What do I have going on?”   Then Pat ended up in the hospital.  But I put my priorities in order, pulled up my big-cis-girl gender-conforming panties, and got to business.

Although not their first album, their popularity started with this song:

You’re all Tools

 

So, last Friday was Toolday: the day Tool fans from all around the world had waited 13 long years to arrive.  The. New. Album.  And some people just walked around like it was a normal day.   Oblivious to it’s greatness.

Behold the “unboxing”   of the limited edition. Yes, I have it. Unlike everyone else who didn’t pre-order.

BBF

Welcome to Big Boob Friday. Well, we’ll see if I get booed out of the room for this one or if this gets pushed down like whoever gets in the way of your mom at the all-you-can-eat buffet.
So I saw this video:

(There’s a pretty good metal version of a Britney Spears song that I like better than the original)
And I thought, “Self, those dancers are pretty hot, they gave their Instagram addresses, I bet that would make a decent BBF post.” So here we are.
