no eyed deer

October 13, 2019

with all due respect to bull's head 1942   this is no-eyed deer 2019 (58" x 33"x 6"). the bike parts have been kicking around the garage for years and were displayed for a while in a dark corner with the horns sadly drooping down. The gold frame found at a yard sale has been on the wall for a couple years with nothing but dull blue paint within. But this weekend it all came together when the wall behind the frame got some fresh red paint and the no-eyed deer got a couple reflector brackets to secure its horns to the wall in their full and upright position. For the holidays I plan to ziptie on a little red blinky light to create the red nosed no eyed deer. Ask me about shopping days 'til Christmas.

I can't help but think somebody somewhere did this before Picasso in 42 just as somebody may have stuck a fork and a wheel into a stool before Duchamp. But the squeaky wheel gets the grease and the famous artist gets the credit.

I believe any chuffer that has worked in a bike shop for more than six months starts to fabricate things from random piles of bike parts: bongs, one hitters, candlestick holders, cheater bars, can openers, clocks, sundials, slingshots, six pack stackers, wind chimes, stools, lawn chairs, garden gates, compost bins, scarecrows, bird feeders, trinkets, trivets, shrines, totems, alters and tributes to the bicycle jesus. So some sucker somewhere had to have had a no eyed deer on their shop wall long before Picasso showed his in Paris.

Did I see 6-pack stackers on that list? Someone's done it, someone's doing it https://photos.app.goo.gl/6vRaXrGJq5hNPHqJ7

that guy has the GBWR six pack ring collection. I drank a couple of those. It's really great he is keeping all that plastic out of the stomachs of baby sea turtles.
