I didn’t say it was Art; what I said was that Reuters reported it as Freaky Art; at least one person in that infamous nuthouse has a sense of value and humor however rare it is for one person to have both.

Any cash buyers?

 It appeared in the Headline story today [Wednesday, January 25, 2012 run date] of my most loved financial columns which in turn is owned by Media24, a name you will recognize from a previous Blog.  In other respects, but excluding my respect, they represent the big guys that you find amongst investment bankers, weapon smugglers, con-artists and  other Politicos and the general Crook-in-Chief schmucks that we see in Davos every year.  Oops, I almost forgot options, derivative and future option dealers, the rich guys stealing from the poor.

 Let me not distract you any further.  Quote Reuters [verbatim from Fin 24]:

 FREAKY: “Orange Sports Figure” by Jean-Michel Basquiat at a contemporary arts exhibition in Doha. The painting is estimated to fetch between $4 680 000 and $4 240 000 when it is auctioned off in London. (Reuters)

It’s yours [the painting I mean] if you have a spare 5 million USA dollar bill once the Bama has done with you.

 And for my old friends, you may note that something shocked me out of my recent state of paralysis; with your love I shall improve; or so I hope.

    Hello Ike,

    It’s the way the world is nowadays – quick scribbles, quick fixes, quick bucks. Nothing long-term, except from our patient foes. Sure signs of a coming awakening, I hope.

      Thanks JM

      I am back from the hills; trying to compose an email to friends that worried about me when I came across this. I must exit my state of paralysis but it is a battle. However the foolishness of the Reuters article provided me with a reason to smirk and I shall work on the problems that have caused my absence, or should I confess that I have to do it because I am the reason for it? Does that make sense to you?

    Happy New Year Sir Ike although it is almost February. Very pleased to hear from you my friend.

    Hope all is well.

      Thanks Lady BD

      I appreciate your visit and the words but I am battling. Ole Rip helped but even he is to calm for me these days. I shall get that email ready for everyone and try getting it out to you. I have seen better times.

    I shoulda’ NEVER signed the intellectual property rights, over to that French guy..BUT I shall admit, it wasn’t one of my better works. It is best not to drink and paint! And yes, I still see flecks of paint, between my teeth. 🙂

      Thanks oh Great One.

      Your humble servant does not deserve your fine presence; I therefore thankee thee for the great kindness and the honor of your visit.

      That you convey your feelings with such fine humor makes me feel even better though I am trying to get out of the darkness of evil. Do I see the likeness of one called the Bama in the artwork?

    Ike, I saw his likeness on a toasted English muffin last week.
