This won’t help in the short term but hot can usually be applied to a
girl you’d date, sleep with but never take home to meet your family.
This is very Creative and Mind Blowing Painting.
maybe it’s time for a little old fashioned rock and roll ..
so .. here’s the King!

What are you losers still doing here? You have been officially IGNORED. From what I’m to understand, when Ms. Orlova is officially done with you, you are IGNORED, and are expected to go away, bugger off or whatever your favorite term for that is. Geez, don’t you guys know anything?
Y U so angry?
What are you still doing here? From what I’m to understand, when Ms. Orlova posts a new blog, you are expected to go away, bugger off and otherwise move on. Geez, don’t you know anything?
Ah, Kohler – always one of the more prominent self important asses on this site. You’ve got no room to talk. If it wasn’t for you and that blog needing boob Neo enjoying the thrill of reading your own ramblings, Orlova might have let this whole sorry mess die a merciful death. You’re the Poster Child for her Ignore/Move On/Don’t Look Back Fan Appreciation Program. Just too stupid to realize it. Reply however the fuck you want. I’m gonna start my own ignore program now, I think. Just like all you California Assholes.

Save your Redenbacher for a good movie. I’m not playin ping pong in this dump
[munch munch munch...]
Oh, sorry, Neuroway. Yes, I remember you as one of the latter-day assholes on this site, too. Didn’t mean to leave you out.
oh yes you are 8-)

Is that as clever as a Californian gets??
pssssshhhhhiiitttt… ittttt…ffffff…. tttt!!!!!
So convenient a thing it is to be a reasonable Creature, since it enables one to find or make a Reason for everything one has a mind to do.
RenaRF has several videos of cats to be or which have been adopted (plus she has four or five cats of her own). She just goes nuts with the baby talk to any kitty.
“I support the indigenous people anywhere in the planet.

If they’re in the planet, they’re pretty much toast.
“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.”

Oh really? Let those who have good eyes see. Let those who have good ears hear.
“Transpierce. To pierce through; to penetrate; to permeate; to pass through.”
– The Dictionary
Another winner! Very good!
Piercing eyes can penetrate the appearance of things. Can you hear powerful thunderbolts in static electricity? Can you feel teeny weeny static electricity in powerful thunderbolts? Behind the clouds, your blue sky is just a microscopic little egg floating to the edge of a deep black immense ocean of fireworks.

The funny thing is, when I view the thumbnail of this file in Windows, it’s always the original painting.
Ayayay. Poor immortal geisha. What have you done to her?
Paintings for sale! Well how are you Camp, have a great day!
“Cynicism is the intellectual cripple’s substitute for intelligence.”
- Russell Lynes (1910-1991)
From the looks of things, I think M is going to have to get back to philology if she expects this site to return to its former robust and active self.
i think the key is dependable regularity.
if she want’s the site to return to its former glory, she’ll have to produce videos regular as clockwork. (eg. exactly the same day(s)/week and same time/day) And maybe give some hint of presence.
But, this site was created in the days before twitter and facebook – a bygone, simple age. M probably doesn’t see the site as the hub of her creativity like she did before (assuming she did).
However, twitter and facebook aren’t good for creating a core community (in the way this site did). Then again, maybe she doesn’t see the need for a core HFW community. We don’t know what the actual M has going on. All we know is the created, projected twitter/video M persona, and she aint telling.
So good to hear/see from you again. Sounds about right, Is these newer stuff, this has been on YT for awhile, but as long as it it is at least different for this site, like clockwork, yeah if you want it like before, you got to put the effort, or try your hardest and best to try and get it back on track. Yackety Yack I’m back!
Your own body is a savage jungle, populated with millions of ruthless, barbarous, bloodlusting creatures, dancing to the beat of a strong drummer you can’t control. One day, the fiercest of them will make a move on you. And it will kill you.
“Once spirit was God, then it became man, and now it is even becoming mob.”
- Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
Yes, but is it “occupying” anything?
Oh how right you are. I came up with about US$50,000, which afforded the surgery, chemo and X-ray treatments that finally killed the creature.
Lesson: if you are over 40, get a colonoscopy and save yourself a lot of trouble. It can be done while you are “out;” you remember nothing (at least until you receive the bill).
You’re really from a colon stock, aren’t you? Have you had any troubles with the natives so far?
What’s a “colon stock?”
It’s a stock inhabiting a colony. Damnit, CK. Can’t you understand your own language?
Stock as in livestock?
No. Stock as in ancestry or lineage; antecedents. The descendants of a common ancestor; a family line, especially of a specified character. Damnity… Give me some patience, please…
Well, I don’t have a colon, so it’s mute.
I don’t know if you have seen this, but I really like this video, and it’s one of my own, and I very rarely like my own videos. So have a watch and tell me if you like it too… By the way my film trailer is out and I’m in it! Thats also on my channel (second newest vid) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF64qtvQqHs

Halli Hallo, you, my dear estimated vernacular indigenous native trading partners! How we doin’ today? Good, I hope fer shure fer shure. UGH! Friendoes’n friendaes? Got some gold? WOW! YEAHYEAH! Hey! Guess what! My trinkets are up for exchange! WOWZA! YEAH! U make a bid now!

Here’s Another Canta Cazzo Remix. (Evan Owen will get it fer shure). :-)
I’d like to see someone bid one more dollar on this painting. If only to see if the person who shilled the bid up over a 1000. bucks really wants it. ;-|
so .. you gonna do it?
I’d like to, but, like i said below, i’m a yorkshirman and it’d be against my religion of skinflintedness.
Just to show you how cheap he is, he leaves the e out of Yorkshireman to save the cost of a keystroke.
“A sweetheart is a bottle of wine, a wife is a wine bottle.”

I like to listen to the music of the dead. It kills the immature, barbarous exultation of my inner demons.

There is no rest to be had in this world. The night of your conception was the night you suddenly materialized, walking towards your own death which is already waiting for you at the end of your own road. All the bridges which you cross are demolished behind you. Forward is the only way, so make sure you advance in the right direction; if you are to grow beyond the mental age of a teenager, you are going to need more, much more than epicureanism in your life.
“The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”

Generally speaking, you can’t, else the stock market would be a cakewalk.
Hey there CK! Still alive, eh?
Sorry, couldn’t resist. :-)

New Yorks alright…if you like saxophones
I went there once and found it to be very impersonal. I had dinner in a little diner, and, when I got up to use the can, everything was cleared away when I came back. (I guess that is what you would call a NY minute.)
One feels like one is just another ant in the hill. You might like the excitement, etc., but it is not a place one can call his own.
It’s a harsh assessment, I know.
Mostly an adolescent lashing out at the recent news. Could it be rumor? Maybe, but something in my stomach tells me otherwise.
i love how these videos always direct me to youtube… i hate youtube. :/
What do you mean, “direct you to?” They are on YouTube, so what else should happen?
Excellent work, Marina! Very bold use of color. Its very abstract (I like abstract art) but it still has an interestingly subtle form. Well done. I’ve tried to paint in the past, but its just not my thing. I liked both your painting and how you video’d it being made.
As for my artistic endeavors (of the musical sort), I continue to struggle to find a drummer who can get the part right for my song “The Harder They Fall’. We’ve tracked everything but still need to replace the drums. I still have an excellent engineer lined up and a great studio available. So I’m vetting drummers and hope to get that done this month, and then get all the video stuff done next month, then put it out and up on youtube starting next year. I guess it’s just meant to be dropped at the start of a political year. lol This drummer impasse kind of sucks being that I feel I have a rebellious song that preceded the Arab Spring and the whole Occupy Everything movement. But so it goes… I’m sure the world will still be in turmoil by the time my song drops. And this song is it’s own thing, regardless of the political flavors of the month.
Anyway, not sure what the HotForWords hiatus was all about, but I hope our trusty teach is back and better than ever. All my best, and I’ll keep you posted on my musical progress. Peace and love, Errin
p.s. I have a new, better laptop now that can watch HFW vids without overheating. Yay!
My aunt, who is in Japan, is a fan of geisha paintings. I will send her this link. She buys a ton. I am half asian, not that it matters… heheheh.
Why E-mail the link? As it is, you can E-mail the entire painting to her. M is not hip to a secure method of posting her work yet.

I have discovered 6 Ice Cream Mars Bars in my freezer!! .. what do you think of that, you bastards!?
Will you leave them there, or will you stuff them, one by one, in your piehole?
i think the idea of them is better than actually pieholing them. I had one – i kinda sorta enjoyed it .. but not as much as the thought of it.
The rest of em will prolly be a future surprise archaeological discovery.
Are you talking about sex? :-)
lol .. well .. on analysis, all discussions and statements are actually about sex.
time for some inspirational hippy era music

I see what’s going on. It really is a bummer, ya know?
Guten morgen, Amaricans! And Gawd bless yar great, free, brave country (Texas or Amarica I think, perhaps the US, not shure fer shure) and each and avery one of the 400,000,000 of yas (in da limits of da possibl, of coarse). Ya know, friendos (and friendas), I tell ya it is true, I am afflicted by a terribl birth defect since birth. Ah, sorrow! Ah, calamity! Ah, misfortune! I am indeed and effectively colourblind, unfoartunately. Could someone kindly help me and let me know the dominant colours in that fine piece of art please? What colours were used to paint this geisha? Are they well mixed like a fine subtle perfume or detonating like crazy? Also, why do you think the artist mixed them like that? And why were these colours used in the first place, and not other ones? Also, what makes this painting an “immortal Geisha” and not an “old germanic prostitute”, for instance, or why not a “young greek maid”? Why an immortal japanese geisha? Anyone got any idea?
Thanks in advance for all your creative answers! I am dying to read them!
Pimped out horsepower is sexy
I cannot explain the title, however, perhaps I can help you “see” the painting. Be warned that I am somewhat red-green difficient according to the FAA (as are about 20% of males), so this may be a case of the not-quite-so-colorblind leading the completely color blind.
Hmm…. The BN spot next to the GL doesn’t make sense. Are you shure of your analysis? I think it should be GY. And the GY shouldn’t be mixed with the GN. GYGN. GYGN, what is that? It looks as stupid as a NASDAQ ticker symbol. No. I say the GY area should be made larger, much larger, and it should stand alone, right next to the GL, which should be made smaller, much smaller (perhaps around a little tinyweeny spot of BU). And both should encounter each other and mix with a lot of R, which is obviously the dominant colour on the picture. Whatcha think about that? You just opened my colourblinded eyes, CK, and I thank you for that.
Perhaps you missed the part of the legend that explained that / means a mix of colors.

new thread eh?
sooooo … no offence M and us lot here, but, given the quality of your audience, you’d get better results if your painting was made up of your used underwear glued to a canvas.
(good painting tho – but, i’m from yorkshire – and we yorkshire folk never part with money if we can possibly help it)
You are from YORKSHIRE? I thought u were American ( I think everyone is american) listen to my videos, and I always talk about what life is like in England haha
i hope you mentioned how tough life is down’t pit.
Down’t pit? I am sorry, as you know I am from Dorset. I have no idea what you are speaking about.
aye .. even so .. they were in england .. but i suppose you wouldn’t have heard of them – they closed them down long ago and put up castles and stables for dragons instead. You wouldn’t know that if you don’t get up north much.
Darned foreigners! Always doing and saying strange things.
yeh … england has a north too!
It goes back to william the conqueror. The south of england sucked up to the new ruler, but the north continued to resist. The problem was solved by a series of massacres. There’s been a sense of 2 nations ever since.
It’s only been a thousands years tho, maybe time will heal the wounds.
Bah, I believe the woman makes youtube videos for a living, @mijj. She paints like you make youtube videos, actually. Wait… But did you just say that Yorkshirers are a bunch of cheap bastards? Why do you say that? Can you prove it?
You mean like this?
oh .. is that from M’s underwear period?
I really don’t about M’s underwear, nor to her periods (blush).
Easy on the immortal geisha, CK. If you continue gluing underwears on it like this, you’ll be stuck with this lesson for months (perhaps years) and you’ll have to do much more than getting down on your knees to unroll another blogging page. And please do remember that the effective value of this painting is presently US $1,425.00 all right? (less than EU €1,000.00 by the way). Without even mentioning its affective value.
Good luck in selling your painting. I hope some collector will take a risk that it will greatly increase in value as you become even more famous.
Not your typical philologist! Putting the LOL in PhiLOLogy :-)
