      This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

      • I didn't realize he was 93! He sure lived a long life and saw many interesting things.

        RIP Mike.

              • Elizabeth Catlett died on April 2nd and I didn't see it mentioned above. I always liked her sculptures and printmaking but her life story is interesting as well.

                • Thomas Kinkade is hanging out with Bob Ross now.

                  • Bob Ross, at least, got people interested in painting and helped teach them the basics of various techniques. I respect that, despite his show and his paintings being a bit silly.

                    Kinkade, on the other hand, pandered to the artistically unsophisticated by supplying them with whatever luscious, over-sweetened eye candy they wanted. Worse still, he marketed his kitsch as though it were great art whose prints were somehow worth the hundreds and thousands of dollars he charged for them, when it reality, it was just glorified Christmas card art. I respect his ability to have pulled off a ruse like that, but that's about as far as my respect for him goes.

                    I hope they're not hanging out together.

                      I was watching a thing on him on the Today Show the other day. They talked about his struggle with alcoholism and how at one point it led him to... hold on now.... pee on a Winnie the Pooh statue. Just the voiceover guy's delivery was priceless. Like that was just so unimaginable. The worst thing that you could say about a man. He besmirched a likeness of the Pooh.

                      • And right on the steps of Disney World, at that! (IIRC; maybe it was Disneyland.) He did work for Disneycorp after that.

                        ... I reckon I'll think about happy little trees now.

                        • He might have peed on Pooh but if he'd pooed on Pooh, I'd really be pissed.

                          • What is a really sad is there are probably thousands of people out there who bought his "limited editions" who secretly hoped this day would come, as they thought their "art" purchase was a "good investment".

                            • Hell, If I woulda known he pissed on Pooh right at Disney's gates then I'll take one of each thank you very much. That is exactly the kind of behavior I expect out of my artists no matter what medium they work in.
