Now, my hood, the Co-op is the first choice, followed by Safeway. Prices roughly the same, although Safeway sells the spicy Thai chilies at $1.00 less than Co-op, still too expensive, $3.00 for 50 grams of chilies and a whole lot of extraneous packaging.

Am I supposed to eat these or snort them?

You can buy the same at Save-On Foods for around $10.00 per pound, which works out to about 80% cheaper - more or less, but Save-On is a bit of a drive away and I can't eat THAT many chilies to justify the gas.

But today, up in the NE, stop by H&W Produce, and - WOW, I've grown too used to being fucked over by Co-op. 98 Cents per avocado, and some are even ripe. At Co-op, $2.50, $3.00 per, and you're buying futures, they're so hard they won't be ripe for weeks. Field-berries for $1.28 a package...Habanero Peppers for $7.00/lb, beets $1.27/lb, I could go on. 

Suffice it to stay I'll stick with Co-op for trivial, non-green-grocer things, but for produce it's H&W all the way. I saved - VS Co-op - easily $12.00 today - on a $7.00 purchase.

Spotted this in a thrift shop and had to share:

I think it's Jesus. Probably it's drawn very true to life, I wasn't there, but it could probably benefit from a bit of restoration...

The art shredding incident...

I started this blog post on my phone the day it happened, then it got blown up all over the media, so there's really no need for me to mention it, but it was a very clever stunt. And I'm pretty sure the auction house was in on it.

Spotted this in a thrift shop. Fucking amazing. I should have bought it...but I'm kinda glad I didn't.

I mean, look at it...it's amazing. Clearly the artist is trying to say something Oh, yeah. And that isn't wine she's pouring. 

The canvas, it's not the angle of the photo, that's the angle of the painting. Look at the painting again, ignore the lack of talent, it's all about the symbolism The expression on her face, the "gimme just another drink and we'll go to bed...". The streetlight. The manyfold bottles. The armpit hair. The red top/bustier/negligee, the streetlights....

Who is the subject? What is her relationship to the artist? What is he/she trying to say? What does it all mean? There's just enough talent there you can read all the messages...

Fucking amazing. Only I don't want to send it on and be obnoxious and so I let it sit...
