Budapest, Hungary - part 2

The cold broke, and the slight warming was enough to make the first week very comfortable, though still much colder than we ever experience in sunny southern California.
The trees were bare, and the stone and steel chilled from within.
The freeze had ended before we got there, but the snow had not yet melted away.
Unicum, the worlds most alcoholic cough medicine. And a symbol of solidarity.
A view of the haunted mansion across the street from the Ernst Muzeum.

We had started the cluster, but there was so much work to go!
Laci and Matt, two local skaters, were busy hanging the Sleepers.
A few topless bathers make the day pass smoother.
Budapest is great in summer.
A passed out museum guards view of the early installation.
Deanna, can I get a leg job?
A photo of Matt B, that is not even in the show, served as the poster. And yeah, Kevin came to get more footage for his film about the lameness of his employer leaving Toy Machine behind to go to Eastern Europe and hang art shows.
This reporter, Hanna, came to the museum for a interview, and upon arrival produced these photos from 1992 when she was a young girl. That is a 20 year old me, and a 14 year old her. This was the TV days, before Toy Machine even started.
She had a photo of Deanna too! New York hat?
This photo she took in Munster, Germany at the Wolrd Championships, 1993.
And both Hanna and me now.

I met a guy named Gabor, very sweet man.

Congrats, Ed
and yeah ( like a lil john yeah ) a Jacket!

Guess that´s what an opening audience expects from an serious artist.
It made me think of beeing always quiet in the museum, like beeing in a church, don´t know why.

Do you feel you have to communicate your work differently when the audience is maybe not informed about all the aspects of your life and where that art comes from? And is the jacket part of that language?
Like eastern europe has still a more traditional or conservative look on
how art and culture is communicated and excecuted including also the expectations how the artist presents himself?

Won´t you tell us a little about your impressions.

I got like a few feet of snow, -2 degrees the other day. not to mention most of my school doesn't have heating.

Can we hear the story of this haunted building?

First photo's spooky.

I've been spending a lot of time on the Juxtapoz website, it's really cool. I think I'm gonna get a subscription.

I love that painting with the DP action:

I'll give you 500 for it. I'm not joking.
Or maybe a copy of it,for less. Like scan it or something.

DP porn is pretty gross. Imagine finding a really nice girl, then she tells you about a time she was gang banged. That would ruin it for me. Plus being naked around another dude, slappin' sacks.

Stone and steel. Almost Morrissey lyrics.

World champino 1993. I wear pants like that at work. You know. some levi's 505.

The year I formed inside my mom. Cool.

Buda,tan pestoso.

Kevin must have been like "I'm in Europe,bitch." So that means all those posts that were made, he had to suffer with slow-ass internet? It's not 2005 anymore.

So,Deanna filmed a sick line at MACBA,right? Nollie tre Yo flip down the four. BO.

I've thought about getting a Juxtapoz subscription. but never really looked at their site. But,uh, I would go for it,john. Some inspiration,whatever.

I LOL'd at dan's button observation. Didn't catch that.
