my girlfriend was working at the desk of this hotel in central florida when they received a call from a guest who JUST checked in that there was a GATOR in their room. She went up like "wtf?" and it was.. a gecko. Like a 5" long gecko. And the woman was freaking out going "eww! what's it do!" and my gf's like "it crawls on stuff and eats bugs n stuff" and the dad was laughing with his son while video taping my girlfriend chase it behind the couch and emerge with it hanging from her ear lobe lol
THE ULTIMATE FLORIDIAN ACCESSORY: LIVE GECKO i mean ALLIGATOR EARRINGS yes such a classic pastime
I absolutely remember hanging lizards from my ears when I would visit my family in Florida.
I’m probably very lucky that I didn’t get some sort of infection.
I did this shit all the time when I was growing up. Yay Florida.
American oil painter Donald Roller Wilson combines the polished realism of the Old Masters with a cast of eccentric anthropomophized animal characters, including dogs, cats and plenty of primates - many of whom are smokers - to create awesome pop surrealist portraits. His regular characters include Cookie the Baby Orangutan, Jane the Pug Girl, Jack the Jack Russell “Terror,” Loretta the Actress Cat, Miss DogAmerica, and Patricia the Seeing Eye Dog of Houston.
According to the New York Times, “Donald Roller Wilson’s goofy, hallucinogenic, Old Master-style painting of monkeys, dogs and cats dressed up in antique costumes may be kitsch, but it’s high-quality kitsch, like good beach reading.”
One of our favorite things about his paintings is that Donald Roller Wilson creates a brief narrative for each of them, much like Travis Louie (previously featured here) does for his own ever-expanding cast of characters.
We recommend visiting Donald Roller Wilson’s online gallery to view many more of his wonderfully strange paintings and read the stories that go with them.
