Let me start with this

Pointed out by Bento. Very sad that someone’s house has burnt of course, but were the inhabitants perhaps more “visibly upset” that their taste in ultra shite art was exposed to the public? No wonder they weren’t commenting. Is Bento starting of 2012 with a “good riddance!”? He says,

“I’m saddened by the thought that there was probably at least one poker playing dogs painting also lost, several velvet paintings of tigers, and perhaps even that one of the guy sitting in the chair in front of the speaker with the lamp blowing backwards.  Such a shame.”

There was also lost several mint condition posters of tennis playing woman exposing arse and an elvis clock, and a brace of bedraggled cat and puppy post falling into toilet. And some minor Robert Junipers. Just think, if this poster hadn’t been dragging down the value of the home, it may have been a $500 000 fire. Via Perthnow.

    $400,000.00 seems a lot to spend for a fire, particularly when all you get out of it is a burnt-down house Why, there are whole neighborhoods in the South Bronx that got that way for free.

    On the bright side, they’ll get to start a new Anne Geddes calendar today.

    Chris Consani brings the heyday of Old Hollywood starpower to life from a dark, masculine perspective. Dean, Monroe, Elvis and Bogie are regulars, while at other times his art poignantly captures the glamour, sentiment, and cinematic appeal of this bygone era. Consani’s movie posters and album covers are renowned in the entertainment industry, and his work has also appeared in the Society of Illustrators, Library of Congress, magazines and exhibits.

    80% non-suspicious? That’s cop for “we have nfi if someone started it on purpose or not”.

    This reminds me of the ‘miracle’ when a house burnt down and a picture of Jesus was the only thing to survive. Thanks, God. How about you stop the fire or save the house next time?

    The surprising thing for me is that the link still goes through to the same photo. No moderation? They must have seen a spike in traffic from one source, surely.

    PS, nice sheep snuff. Tops. Mint in fact.

    You know a Robert Juniper painting would probably be worth more than the house, right?
