Mothra Faulkner

MothraFaulkner.jpg

I just remembered that I had this floating around in my Photobucket page from last year. I was driving home from Lit class, and it hit me - I had to come straight home and make this image, because if I didn't, who would? I've been using "Mothra Faulkner" as an expression ever since, but I didn't really have any place to put the image before now. See, this is why blogs are cool - if you hadn't been reading this, you never would have been introduced to Mothra Faulkner. Unless you live in Japan, where I imagine he flies around from town to town, telling everyone about the American South.

Someone sprayed some tags on the sidewalk in front of my house. I put a frame around it in sidewalk chalk, wrote "(neighborhood name) Art Museum" above it, then added a small label at the bottom describing it as an example of neo-classical post-gangsterism. Hope they like it.

Also, I found a bunch of old shirts from 7th grade that still fit. Maybe it's a little creepy for a twenty year old to be wearing a shirt from the local junior high, but hey...I'm too broke to turn down free clothes.

A weaver of Southern Mothic tales, I think his most notable works are "The Round and the Furry," a treatise on the asthetics of southern women, and his autobiography, "Go down, Mothra." He was the first macro-organic-mutanoid to win a nobel Prize in 1949.

Don't forget his tour-de-force, "As I Slay, Flying", in which his caterpiller children cross the country, taking his cocoon to his old home-town so that he can be hatched with "his people"....But, seriously, I think you win on the merits of having used the phrase "macro-organic mutanoid". :goofy:

I did something similar a couple years ago when I found some old photos of me at one of the last Christmases at our old family home in the late 1980s, and discovered I still had some of the same clothes in my closet. Naturally, I thereupon resolved to wear them again at our next Christmas gathering. When I informed people that I was, that day, wearing exactly what I had been wearing precisely to the day 16 years previously, the response ranged from bemusement to indulgent nods. No one else seemed to realize that it was something that had to be done.

I still have a pair of pants from 1971, but frankly, I'd have to catch a terminal abdomonal disease in order to loose enough weight and waist to get into them.I love your idea for the local street art. A neighbor had a white van which became graffiti painted with "Bitches from Hell" and was totally pee'd off. I suggested something similar, suggesting he add a sign that said, "Freestyle artword donated by the girls living at ......." (They knew the girls and the address). He declined, opting to have them pay for repainting the vehicle instead. Oh well.

He also wrote some little-known erotic tales, such as "Soldier's Lay," "Hags in the Lust," "Python," and "Intruder of the Bust."
