Shakshula is so good! Haven't made since I had a vegan phase (it's over)

It turns out that others on the chatboards have been plotting boat adventures to jolly olde England. The Good Ship Ticklish Diablito has been nominated to be the flagship!
Avatar 12:21pm solo mon:

Yes! 50 foot hose!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Time for another yarn spin by Granny: my freshman core art teacher was a member of Fifty Foot Hose
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

solo mon: was Cork Marcheschi still at SFAI when you were there?
Avatar 12:21pm solo mon:

BC / Granny you both just won all the points today for 50 foot hose
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

He told a bunch of teenagers, "It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission." It took me YEARS to realize how wrong and entitled that was.
Avatar 12:22pm solo mon:

Oh I think so? I mostly only payed attention to George kuchar and Larry Jordan, that was all I cared abt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Cork was in sculpture.
Avatar 12:23pm solo mon:

I got a lot of terrible advice and some great advice from my advisors at SFAI (RIP)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Then there was the time my Performance Art teacher placed two bottles of tequila and a row of joints on the table and said, "i hope you pass your final!"
Avatar 12:25pm solo mon:

Yeah then no I was living breathing experimental film and “new genres” which we now know as time based art LOL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

wait, New Genres id now Time-Based Art? When did that happen? I feel even more decrepitated!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Back in MY day, it was P/V (performance/video)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Before that, it was the sculpture department and "Installation Pieces"
Avatar 12:27pm solo mon:

I just think that’s what the art world calls it nowadays. We just called performance art, but SFAI was the only place calling it “new genres” or as I called it “taking off your clothes and bathing in pudding.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Franco Twinkie:

Years ago when I lived in Pasadena, I found a copy of Surf Rockin' by Joe Houston at the Disabled American Veterans thrift store. For some inexplicable reason(I was high on drugs) I very carefully cut out the letters on the album cover and glued them to the wall in the dining room. I wish I hadn't done that.
Avatar 12:28pm solo mon:

There was a lot of pudding, as I recall. None of it was eaten.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

solo mon: back in MY day, it was bathing in mayonnaise!
Avatar 12:28pm solo mon:

Franco! Always w the best stories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

OMGX Franco!

Avatar 12:34pm solo mon:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm chresti:

The only thing I covered myself with was blue food coloring mixed with something, lotion? Salad oil?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

chresti: Holy Smurf! Did it come off ok?
Avatar 12:36pm solo mon:

Summer theme, haunted summer.

Avatar 12:37pm solo mon:

Chresti are you aware that some men stole your idea and made money on Broadway?!
Avatar 12:38pm solo mon:

Flutes attacked by flying flutes!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm chresti:

It was Geza X's idea, for a "Druid" party, solo, I was 16.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

This Tangerine Dream sounds perfect with the thick fog in SF today
Avatar 12:40pm solo mon:

Wow geza x that is so cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm chresti:

*SIGH* thick fog.
Avatar 12:42pm solo mon:

Wow Kaplan brothers wow
Avatar 12:43pm solo mon:

Flute check bongo check moog check whistling checcccckk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm chresti:

Geza also may have been the source of the mushrooms that inspired Franco to cut letters out of an album cover, years later.
Avatar 12:43pm solo mon:

Hahahaha chresti!
