~STEVE POWERS . . EARL IS TODAYS VICTIM !!
SYRIA’S ANTIQUITIES – ARE TODAYS VICTIM, SUMMER 2015.
THE TRUTH – NEVER GOES AWAY.
DESTROYING ARTWORK FROM CENTURIES AGO – SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE (SORRY) STATE OF OUR WORLD – AS IT TURNS, TODAY.
EARL, such a great name, right up there with ELVIS, what happened to it ?
Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl . . . sweet harmony, of oppressed peoples, USA – console me.
well, at least we have photos – of those ruins, but nothing beats the real thing, for a real good time travel, not to mention real time commune with fellow artists from way back.
it’s war on art and civilization, not jest religion and politics.
what else is new. I’m so distraught.
tell me, Banksy didn’t call it – boatloads of migrants and all . . DISMALAND, in-deed !!
he should have had a 2,000 years-old artifact crushing station, or ride, whatever.
replica key chain: lost ancient temple, Palmyra, Syria, $10. and it’s yours. to cry over.
so I actually ended up scoring that piece . .
‘EARL IS TODAYS VICTIM’ – a riot, or what !!
turned out this yellow background, metal sign format – was an important prototype for the kind of signage Steve was going to put up at DISMALAND.
the coloring is based on authentic retro New York City – street signage.
I considered myself very, very . . lucky to acquire the piece, it’s about 22 inches square, metal on a frame base, unique. for the grand total of: $250 !!
basically: zip !!
but still, every friggin’ cent I had to my name – but, hey: CA-CHING $$$$$$!!!!!!
STEVE was handing out these stickers for free.
so, YOU LOOK STUPID – if you don’t have at least that, a sticker give-away by ESPO !!
you can always make up for stupidity & lost opportunity – by visiting Steve in his ICY STUDIOS – and see what you can wrangle, he’s usually up to whatever you have – you get something. though his prices must be up there for any thing substantial. at this point.
damn, he’s prob even charging for the stickers, now. ha. he’s a hustler, very fun guy !!
so don’t be . . more stupid, than YOU already are. get your sorry ass up there.
I got your number, don’t worry !!
