Found Art Friday 148

Caution: today's Found Art Friday was hijacked by some "food" packaging
that has caused Art Ranger to bust-a-rant /rap of excessive indigestion
(We don't think this is popular in other countries)
Note the bold, sunny presentation - green grass, blue sky ....
We do love our country 'tis of thee but ...
Here in America we want to cut the legs off our cake and eat it too
We got charge cards so Rich & Creamy that NOW is whatever we want right now
We got the Rich & Creamy Wall Street cats of fat-free fat
with their own banking backing
system lining their own fat pockets with dough while the
 regular work-a-day donkeys get sand in pockets
that pour through seams of sagging back feeling
Really Bad outfit + Donkeys used as tanks - really
Used Regular Joe and Used Regular Jane with their Rich & Creamy 401Ks
built over years get siphoned off even before you blink or think
Due to the bigASS too-big-to-failers building a faster fatter fiberoptic artery
For their money hoses
caution to the wind - she is ranting again
And we've got our Rich & Creamy FAT FREE debts to fiction bubble priced homes
POP! Which cause people to need three jobs or live on the street
Gosh yes, half of half of the half is surely the FAT FREE half 
and a sugar-free, ice not, cream not, cookie not, cake not fake but
packed with chemical additives and brand new tasty words like ersatz fats
and plenty of salt so that finally our carb soaked bodies still crave actual FAT
( evidently our brains are made of it)
But no trans fat and no time for this or that poly-un-saturation, because we are too busy being busy
 STOP!
Another Rich & Creamy Fat-free HALF and HALF element
of our have-it-all win win work work culture
 is the steep increase in children diagnosed with ADHD
 and prescribed methamphetamines (with pasturized names)
so they can survive/ game the public school and standardized test prisons
Quote from our graduating senior:
"What I learned in high school was how to be bored and not go crazy." 
How would kids be doing without all this trumped up need for speed
manufactured by the predatory big-pharma profiteers?
Zombie Bunny Lollipop  -  got a 4.735 GPA and still was not accepted at Stanford
 More Rich & Creamy FAT FREE ultra-pasturized moments
  in the sanitized-for-your-protection universe 
We see people spend their lunch $ on venti triple carmel machiato double espresso soy nonfat lattes
and pretend to be nourished while other people don't have a shoe
  Ultra-pasturized to the point that guts have no guts left
Why should food last for months unless it's a jar of pickles made by Aunt Ruth?
Another Fat-free rich-and-creamy-ultra-pasturized fact/farce
How our culture worships youth to the point that ladies with wrongsideout faces
wear ageless cancelled out grimaces of shiny erasure in Whole(Paycheck)Foods checkout line
Filled with fillers in the furrow of the brow -  Owww  -  where's your pain, brain?
Faces unallowed to frown, probably trapped in a Chucky Cheeses maze of decay anyway
Now that's a face! photo by Rolf Bach: (at Whole Foods Peru?)
Rich & Creamy Fat-free HALF and HALF so removed from its whole 
Phew! we don't have to buy it
We're hauling home some raw heavy whipping cream instead
Brave listener you deserve a badge!
 STOP her NOW
Easter Happy to you - what would a Jesus buy or trade or say at your grocery store?

Found Art Friday 147

Dear you and you too,
Today's Homeland Inspiration inbox was feeling the warm fuzzies of life being stranger than fiction:
Sent by Wick Alexander: Best Painter in entire USA - check out some of his work!
Burned Water
framed
 by Man named Wick
 Flash Flood
Lonely crucified shoe ...
Whew - surely a heroic gesture is afoot
We're betting the dame is only alive because she ditched her shoe

Now this:
From Richard Anthony - he bought these especially for us to see.  There is sure a lot of mopping up to do ...
The W word next to ERROR makes us think Dubya.  Is some Errrrasure what he is trying to accomplish by "painting"? Make cute little distortions, sefies and doggie paintings to innocently divert attention from his hand in helping to nearly destroy the world?

Really? Are you buying into the murk of selfie-reflection?
Naive and flat with a very limited, milky, homogenized palette, lacking full understanding of perspective - mirroring his world view perfectly.  ((There appear to be some amazing hacks hacking? W's painting story as well: Wow: "out damn spot" how can I ever get that blood stain off?)).

Let us now look at some bath tub art that endures:
Pierre Bonnard, 1941
Phew - alrighty then - we're all relaxed and centered now (thank you dog) for calming the floor and helping us forget Dubya "I'm the decider". 

As always, we look forward to your found art contributions to this Homeland Inspiration enterprise - send to FAF@homelandinspiration.org.

Found Art Friday 146

Dear Ones,
Last week, the Artist was at large and wishes to share this precious Sky Mall moment with you:

Luckily, Friend in the Bay Area graced the Art Ranger's inbox with two more finds from a series of altered/ repurposed street signs.
Yes - compassion stretches us in both directions
Art Ranger heartily approves this message and this unusual clandestine activity involving napkins.

Speaking of streets, here is one from Gentlemen Jeff:

Why did the turkeys cross the road?

Because she did.

Close your eyes and imagine a world without food coloring.  Is this the peeps version of guys strutting their stuff?
Surprising items get snuk (is that a word?) into the mother's grocery cart.

We hope you have a lovely day which includes time to wonder ............. or even to collect fodder for: FAF@homelandinspiration.org.
