the outlined-in-green plastic lid is new;
its counterpart… a new long glass “pan”…
is on a part of the counter (to the right
of the frame) not seen here. the milk carton
is not an endorsement as such; i picked it
up today at the spanish grocery near the
park-and-ride around the corner from living-
ston and brice: “LALA leche entera con
vitamina D” etcetera etcetera. but LALA
certainly has a pleasant ring to it and
who can disagree with a mother-and-baby
(even though they appear to be having
the time of their lives being swept away
on some tidal wave of milk or something)?
the mouse is the mouse. the egg-flipper
sharing the foreground with it is first
of the lot; the fourth-best is next to
the mister-natural-doing-dishes poster
(yay, crumb!) over the toaster at right
hiding the handle of the pizza slicer.
the vegetable oil in the jar under all
that was used in deep-frying yesterday’s
churros
.

the other shot? well, any beginner ought
to be able to spot chris ware and steranko.
if you know the kurtzman book, you’ll know
that there are plenty of other greats with
work shown on that one cover alone. ditto
the u.s.~mail thingum in the frame. you’ll
maybe be able to guess the painter for the
(also u.s.~mail) sticker next to the frame.
the drawing in the *box* with the sticker
on it is by me (of a statue in the IMU at
IU bloomington). oh, hey. vincent, of
course. that thing on the side of the
cabinet with all the covers on it has lots
of cool art, but even i can’t name any now.
(i’ll be looking it over later on tonight.)
once i tell you that _empire_
is in there, you’ll find it easily enough
if you know it. but i think that’s about
it for artists having the property that one
can point at the photo here shown and say
“that’s so-and-so, and i can tell you how
i can *tell* it’s so-and-so”. could be
i’m wrong. a post this long *always* has
mistakes in it… i’m *bound* to be wrong
about *something*. got counterexamples?
