Gifted singer, musician and rare perceptive wit, the artist Miss Von Trapp deserves appreciation.
Here, three recent pearls from a rather grand ocean of quirk.
An exceptional talent.

After a day of scratching and scrabbling, London Dadaist Dingo yet again discovered a new species previously considered extinct by Darwinian evolutionists – the elusive Logpecker ( Picidaeous loggous), along with its fossilized chick to left picture.
In 2008 Dingo salvaged its genetic cousin, the long lost Logfish ( loggous fishous extraordinarious ), link here.

London Dada work 573; A Rubbish Christmas

This langishing, pointless nether time
betwixt Christmas and New Year

Like that forgotten little stretch of skin
between genitals and rear

Anon.

A Rubbish Christmas

c. Michael St. Mark 2012

Social commentary Work on the uber materialistic, wasteful residue of the festive season along with the now almost complete divorce from its traditional Christian association. The image, depicting business suit and cashpoint exiting stage left, leaves the rubbish collection in its uncaring wake. Landfill sites across the nation get an extra big small fir tree and present / food packaging dump, post Boxing Day.
The sewers, needless to say, are taking a hammering from oil tanker volumes of human discharge after millions of marathon alcohol quaffing and dead bird & animal-devouring sessions.
The title hints at the miserable (rubbish) time endured by many single and elderly socially isolated people from Dec 24th through to New Year, when taking to bed for the week may well appear the prefered option.

The Dada refrain ” What is becoming of us?” rears up once again.
