by Accidental Bear

I am shaking in my boots over here with anticipation. I am in love with this full figured power house. You rock me on my gym head phones, Beth you rock me on my walk to work, my train to school. You Beth Ditto are the wind beneath my wings. And im heading toward 200lbs , so you better be so damn strong winds. March 7th is marked on my calendar and I will be ready to embrace your solo project like no other.

What Would You Do with $17 million?

by Accidental Bear

What would i do with$17 million? A boob job, brazilian ass lift, nose job… wait a minute  ( car screeching to a halt) I’m not a tranny! So, I would get calf implants, life time supply of steroids, lazor hair removal and a spray on tan ….wait another minute (car screeching to a halt) I’m not a professional Bodybuilder!

Ok, honestly though. I do love to spend a pretty penny  on art work and admire and have been inspired in my life by Andy Warhol ( In early 1990s covered everything in my house with tin foil to look like the Factory. True Story). 17 million is outrageous. Think of the good you could do. But I will never have to struggle with this decision. Because I am  much closer to  $0.17, than $17 M. What a burden that would be.

The red-and-white silk-screen ink-on-canvas shows Warhol with his hand over his mouth. The self-portrait, one of only 11, was purchased Wednesday, according to auction house Christie’s, and was previously held by a personal collector for the past 37 years.
