East River Fish


George Estreich’s East River Fish was created when the artist was contemplating the life span of fauna in that river. Estreich cut up 30 tomato sauce cans and an equal amount of Coke cans to put this fish together and lost about a cup of blood for his efforts.

Many of the original blood spots still dot this piece, offering a “don’t touch” warning to viewers and a reminder to me that my mother was always right.

The Passing of Stabby the Sailfish


A LOL post about ending a relationship with a sailfish mount that was found in an alley.

I like to imagine Ernest Hemingway and baseball great Ted Williams sitting on a boat together, taking turns on the rod, struggling for hours to land the creature. When the fight is finished, the men bring their prize ashore, and retire to the fishing club to do some shots of Pisco with John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. They would eat Dorado and share stories of love, life, and women. And one day, the symbol of their greatness would find its way into my life, and perhaps onto my wall.

Whatever. Anyway, time to throw this dirty fuckin’ thing into the dumpster.

When the wind is from the west the fishing is best


When the wind is from the west the fishing is best.
When the wind is from the east the fishing is least.
When the wind is from the north the fishermen can't go forth.
When the wind is from the south it blows the bait in the fishes' mouth.
