  • The best flea market find ever!

    Last sunday I found two oil paintings from flea market. Both are by local artist, who died in 2004. I have seen a lot of his paintings, but these two are just madly misguided works of fan art. I'm still in delirium because of these works of art:



    And if the face of the sphinxes is not familiar, check these out:

        Do the implements have particular ritual significance or are they generic fantasy weapons?

        Eitherway they're great and well demonstrate that kitsch is a strange beast that needs regenerating by mind-blowing injections from Mystic Finnish Lions.

          Of course the implements have esoteric ritual significance. The scale in the right picture is rumored to be exact copy of scale in the City hall building in here. So surely there are some Masonic connections there. And the wand with the D in the left one is surely reference to Dannys nickname Iso-D (Big-D). I don't know the esoteric significance yet... I'm still doing recearch on them.

            I envy you, sir - he's my hero...I was actually honored to witness The Lion himself - aka "The Big D" - in action in June, on a ferry to Tallinn:

            And while we're at it, here's a few more examples of the wide spectrum of his talent & variety:

              Wow, nice pictures Blue Burt. 10 years ago Danny still filled concert halls. I have been fan of the Big-D for a long time. He just oozes kitsch!! Something like 10 to 15 years ago I used "would you like to go to Danny Show with me" as a pick up line once. The girl just loked shocked and mumbled something about old pervert. I still don't know was she talking about me or Danny. But thinking back it's ok, how much bad taste can one take. Not wanting to go to Danny Show with me shows serious lack of good taste.

                Haha, Iso-D on the ferry Tallinn sounds perfect! My mrs met him on a shoot in Greece - D wasn't the subject but happened to be at the same hotel. He does look like a dirty old man in the pictures though that resulted though Great finds, Timo!

                  Risin' up, back on the street
                  Did my time, took my chances
                  Went the distance now I'm back on my feet
                  Just a man and his will to survive

                  So many times it happens too fast

                  You trade your passion for glory

                  Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past

                  You must fight just to keep them alive


                  It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight

                  Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

                  And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

                  And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger


                  Face to face, out in the heat

                  Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry

                  They stack the odds, still we take to the street

                  For the kill with the skill to survive


                  It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight

                  Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

                  And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

                  And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger


                  Risin' up, straight to the top

                  Had the guts, got the glory

                  Went the distance now I'm not gonna stop

                  Just a man and his will to survive


                  It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight

                  Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

                  And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

                  And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger


                  The eye of the tiger

                  The eye of the tiger

                  The eye of the tiger
