Wally and Wanda

Day One:

Whistling windows wake Wanda

While whoozy Wally whizzes water

 

Wanda wonders

Why walruses want waxed walls?

Why wax walls when wine waits?

Walruses wait while Wally waltzes Wanda

 

Day Two:

Whirling wind wakes Wanda

While whoozy Wally whizzes water

 

Wanda wonders

Why walruses whine

When Wally winks?

Wine waits while waxed walls wane

 

Day Three:

Whittling walruses wake Wanda

While whoozy Wally whizzes water

 

Wanda wonders

Why walruses whittle waxed walls?

Why wank Wally’s willy when wine waits?

Wally wakes when Wanda wanders

 

Day Four, Five, Six, etc.?

Water will whizz

a>CLICK HERE to watch C SMASH VIOLIN on Jun 16th 2012 at 2:23pm. Video by John M Bennett.
In honor of the exact 50 year anniversary TO THE DAY of the Nam June Paik piece “One for Violin Solo,” C Mehrl Bennett smashed a violin onto a wooden table on front stoop of her home in Columbus OH USA. This event came off in collusion with the fluxus micro fest in nyc (between 2pm and 4pm, June 16; hosted by Jane Wang with special guest, Bibiana Padilla Maltos) as part of Mark Bloch’s “Öne for Violin Ensemble.”
Notice the three curlique branches of ceramic mobile echo the two F holes of the violin. C made that mobile years ago. Birds & maple leaves move in the wind which helps mark the time element. Encore involves glueing violin back together and mailing it (in it’s case with it’s bow) to Mark Bloch or Bibiana Padilla Maltos. Part II is in the works.
