Miercoles Pictures

Evil birds fighting over my lunchtime crumbs.

Shoving it up where the sun don't shine. Yeah baby, reach really deep mmmm and poke some of that chocolatey bits and undigested corn kernels. I ain't shaking his hand though.


Rodin's Porte de l'enfer being installed.

Modigliani, Rodin, G.L. Brockhurst, and A.R. Middleton Todd all in one place at the same time. What do they have in common? They've all worked with beautiful models. It's art imitating art. These guys are lucky to have exquisitely captured the nude female form with their art.

The best way to get a beautiful girl out of her clothes? It begins with the magic words "I'm an artist/photographer", then look deep into her eyes and say "You have the most amazing bone structure....."

Trust me. 99.999999% of the time she will show up at your 'studio', naked and smouldering, ready to be immortalised with a click of your camera or a flick of your paintbrush.

Of course, if you are like me, have some ice ready in the fridge and be prepared to get whacked on the head by naked girl as you bring out your, tadaaaa! - 4 megapixel 3x Zoom point and click Nikon Coolpix camera. (Worse if it's just a disposable film camera. That's three punches to the head and a kick on the nuts.)

Normally it goes "You're not a photographer, you're a pervert." Punch. Kick. Punch.

However should you manage to survive the initial blows the next magic line is "It's not the size of the tool darling. It's how you use it."

My knee. Drinking afternoon tea at the Royal Academy of Art, watching the girls go by, and Paco de Lucia on my mp3 player. This is the simple life.

Skyflakes. Goes well with extra-cold Guinness.

Have you heard the trio with Paco de Lucia? It's amazing.

That's the actual Rodin piece? Shit!

I don't know how many paco recordings are out there. I guess lots.

The original plaster cast of Gates of Hell is at the Musee D'Orsay in Paris and there is a bronze cast at the Rodin Museum. This one is from the Kunsthaus in Zurich and cast by Alexis Rudier. I don't know how many bronze casts have been made. It's a beautiful piece. It has all the major Rodin sculptures in one body of work.

mmmmmm... a guinness.

Welcome back from your Eva Green vacation.

LOL at the guy with his hand in that girl's pants. How long did you ogle? haha, thanks to you that romantic moment is immortalized.

The only Rodin sculpture I could identify is The Thinker. Lame am I.

And BTW, Kris sends her regards. (She's claiming you as the dad of her baby... Start wearing canary yellow to impress the biyenan)

I've actually met Tita Cory. And I have to hand it to her, no matter how she's been eeeevil to those farmers at hacienda luisita, she does have charisma. Kristeta? Well I wouldn't touch her with a 10 foot pole. I heard she's naming the baby 'Oprah' if a girl. No Hermes scarf for her then....
