Aging Pretentious Artist (a poem)

 Middle-aged undiscovered artist.
Bitter.
Angry. 
Still wondering why
the less talented received all the breaks
and they didn’t.
 
Flashback to their twenties.
Arrogant. 
Know-it-all.
Wouldn’t listen to constructive criticism.
Dismissed current popular artists.
Called their work garbage.
 
Years pass by.
Still arrogant.
Still a know-it-all.
Still won’t listen to constructive criticism.
Still dismissing current popular artists.
Still calling artists' work garbage.
 
Bitterness and anger worsen over the years. 
It’s everyone’s fault. 
The world is against them.

Now middle-aged and still undiscovered.
If only the world recognize their artistic genius.
Thinking that and still holding on
to behavior that fucked them in the first place.
 
Eventually dies in poverty.
Dies still bitter and angry. 
Dies a damned fool.

The Booty Pics Month

So far, last month is my biggest moment for booty pics. All of this came as somewhat a surprise. Yet, some folks said it was my reputation proceeding me. All of it happened in Orlando.

First, it started during the last week in November. At The Imperial at Washburn, these two ladies bought my photo and poetry book Three Orlando Nightspots.

On another night, I saw the group Bad Santa and the Angry Elves at The Hideaway. I was hesitant to ask Tushy Elf for a booty pic. Yet, when I asked anyway, she was all for it.

During a photo assignment for Orlando Weekly, a dear friend offered me a booty pics pose. For the record, she’s African-American.

Another night, I photographed in a studio for the first time.

On another night, I attended another Bad Santa event. This was at Will’s Pub. Here, another woman volunteered a booty pose.

Last but not least, another friend volunteered a booty pose at Lil Indies. The focus screwed-up on this one. Fuck it, I’ll post it anyway.

Female Democrats Calling President Trump a “Bitch” and a “Motherfucker”!

One of the things that has always pissed me off about Democrats is that they never talk enough shit. As the Republicans both voice and show their nastiness, Democrats usually play nice.

Fuck that! Things have now changed! First, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) called President Trump “Saudi Arabia’s bitch”. Next, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) called Trump a “motherfucker”. Seeing that Tlaib is from Detroit, her calling someone a “motherfucker” does not surprise me.

It’s about damned time! I never forgot that congressman who yelled out calling President Obama a liar. This was during one of President Obama’s speeches.

It’s time to stop playing nice! Time to take off the kiddie gloves. Time to take off the earrings. Okay, Democrats, let’s get ready to rumble!

Pics of my First Studio Photo Shoot

Last month, I was the second photographer for a fetish shoot. This was for Mister Pierre Fetish Fashion.

As the main photographer photographed the models, I was more of the closeup person. This is why the two models aren’t looking at me.

Being I want to learn studio photography, this is why I volunteered as the second photographer.

Here’s the pics.

Orlando’s Tushy Elf AKA Tymisha Harris

Over the years, I’ve been following Orlando-based group Bad Santa and the Angry Elves. The music parodies rock music with raunchy Christmas-themed lyrics.

During a break, I photographed portrait shots.

The following are two pics of Tushy Elf AKA Tymisha Harris. I was hesitant to ask for a booty shot. Yet, she agreed to it.

Tymisha starred in a one woman show as entertainer Josephine Baker. RuPaul loved it!

Happy Holidays!

Three Pics from Downtown Orlando’s Beth’s Burger Bar

Friday, I read an Orlando Weekly article saying Beth’s Burger Bar was closing its downtown location.

After finishing nightclub photography gigs, I would head to Beth’s burgers.

Over the years, I took the following iPhone pics there.

One night, I ran across my friend Richard (left). He introduced me to John (right). As he may pass for an Anglo, John is a native of Puerto Rico.

He started badmouthing Puerto Ricans born in the States. To John, because they weren’t born in Puerto Rico, Puerto Ricans born in the States shouldn’t call themselves Puerto Ricans.

As I sat at a booth eating a burger, I noticed a fight happening, one that resulted in a knockout. The perpetrator was never caught.

The following was one of two booty pics I took. Both were taken on two separate occasions. Even tho it’s out of focus, this pic is my favorite of the two.

For real, who would not notice a big booty wearing sexy white shorts?

For the record, because it comes across as creepy, I no longer photograph candid booty shots.
