|#2 You had me at "Rumpus Room," you lost me at "$25."|
|#3 My favorite find of the day, because it meets the "What the f**k?!" level of bewilderment.|
"You know what's missing in the knickknack shopping world?" says the chief executive, "Shell boys fishing!!!"
|#4 Just how I found it at the vendors table. Where do I start? From the company you can trust- "ManStaff."|
|#5 I already have one, but when another appears for $30-|
I only have so much willpower!
|#7 Tis not quite the season for Santa- but it's always Liberace season at the O'Connell manor!|

|A public apology to Stellar Corpses and their fans!|
I've done them a disservice for reusing an altered section of a painting they commissioned for their cd "Dead Stars Drive-In" as an online promotional image for a local one night movie screening at the McHenry Drive-In.
This art is quite important to them and I was completely incorrect for using it for something else and they're completely correct to be unhappy about it.
Even though it was just done as a favor for my friend who puts on the film shows (ie- no $ was paid), I'm still 100% wrong.
I've learned my lesson!
Now please go buy their cd and "like" them on Facebook as I start the process of getting back in their good graces!

|We don't really need any wedding gifts, but if you INSIST, here are a few helpful suggestions.|
#1- A vintage rotating KFC bucket installed on top of our house.
|#2 A motel "Color TV" sign by the front door.|
Only because I like to rub it in the neighbors faces that we always have the
most up to date electronics at the M.O'C Manor!
|#3 Every outfit from the 1959 Fredricks of Hollywood catalog. Keep in mind that Alyson is 5' 10" and 45-25-40 (approx)- so please make sure they're all the proper fit.|
|#4 For Mitch- Since he's a Star, of course he should ONLY be wearing selections from the|
"Lew Magram -Shirtmaker to the Stars" collection.
|#5 Not that I'll need the reminder, but it'll make me even more cool|
among my buddies and result in endless hi-fives.
|#6, 7 and 8 are items I've surprisingly NEVER seen ANYWHERE!|
Start scouring your local garage sales now!
|#9 Do I have to explain how important it is to have a lifesize nude woman table? Really?|
|#10 Next time you're at Wisconsin's House on the Rock, please pick up the "Throne of Passion" for me.|
fyi- it might take 2 to carry it to the car.

|Todays Wall Street Journal has sold out EVERYWHERE!|
Because inside is a M.O'C illustration!
Step #1- spare no expense hiring professional models!
|Step #2- Pencil up the art for approval!|
|Step #3- Deliver finished art!|
|Step #4- Never show them the thrift store $1 figurine they could have used instead to illustrate the article (and have saved quite a big chunk of change).|
Thanks to Pete Hausler, Kris Areche, Ronald Plyman and David Bamundo for the work!

|I love the carnival/sideshow spirit, so I ponied up the 4 bits|
to support an fellow entrepreneur set up at Wolffs Flea Market.
He suggested I photograph the gaff (and tell my friends)-
otherwise I never would have given away the surprise!
|A dollar well spent!|
|I heart the crazy pink abstract fur twirl brushstrokes on this velvet masterpiece!|
|This was Alyson's way of spelling out the good/bad news.|
|Like a solar eclipse, it's huge,|
and you can't look at it directly without melting your retinas.
|Sadly, the Richard half of the "Carpenters" doll couple seems to missing his guitar,|
otherwise it would have been hard to resist bringing them home.
|Satan has started a new line of children's playthings.|
So if you've already named your son Damien, these might be just right!
|I constantly have to explain to the kids that their new fangled ipad/ipod/xbox/imax/streaming/downloadable whatnots can't hold a candle to the exciting games we had when I was young!|
|The upside- you find a painting with strange fanged creatures bitting|
each others heads off while a floating eyeball watches everything.
The downside- it's $6.
Wait a minute- there is no downside!
|Finding that these didn't come in a 32 waist and 34 length was|
probably one of the saddest days of my life.
|As soon as the Gorilla Glue dries under my new hood ornament,|
I'll be driving around town with the windows down and 97.9 cranked up.
Because I'm cool.
People think painting in oils is the only true way of creating a masterpiece.
Well I just proved them wrong!
|After I got home I realized we only have two showers.|
I guess I'll have to live with tension, soreness and frustrations.
|This seemed to remind me of some upcoming event.|
Hmmmmmmm…. I'm drawing a blank.
Give me a minute- it'll come to me!
