Ken you've cracked me up :lol: :lol:

Ken, when I see your user name it reminds me of the song "Liverpool Lou"

Ok, it's not going to rhyme but I've replaced Lou in the song with Ken.

"Oh Liverpool Ken, lovely Liverpool Ken
Why don't you behave like other boys do"

Ha ha ha :lol: ~ That's too funny!

And where were the signed price lists for sale?? I'd have bought one :lol: . I guess they must be a recent addition to the collection :wink: .

I'd love to have one... where did you find that, Ken?

I’ve seen some of Bob’s paintings up close and I can assure they deserve to be in a gallery. However up to now he’s not ‘doing a Leonard’ with his work, but with Bob you never know.
Hi Liverpool,
I think its a little naive to put His Bobness on this pedestal. He's always had an eye out for money and and he's 'done a Leonard' many times over. And I am not even talking of the underwear business (which I thought was funny and cool!). But take this radio show of his....why do it for XM satellite radio and be paid big bucks (reportedly around $500K) when if he really cared about art for art's sake he could have done the same program for npr (and reached a wider audience) and be paid peanuts for his troubles. Indeed, there are highly talented classical and jazz musicians who dont have a fraction of the exposure that he does and who contribute wonderful music programs to public radio. With all due respect I sense a little tension between your love of all things Bob and your socialist leanings. They are mutually exclusive.
As for paintings I dont really know much about Bob's but among the celebrity-singer-songwriter-wannabe-artists Joni Mitchell is really talented.
Ultimately though, every man has the right to make money in anyway he chooses to - whether selling pricey doodles or woman's underwear. And perhaps it is a reflection of the pop culture that they are able to command so much money doing the above. Bill Clinton or Colin Powell can charge $50K-100K for 1 hour talks whereas academics usually get $ 200 - $ 500 for giving 1 hour talks about their research. And so it goes.
And its past midnight now. Goodnight.

I believe it is a unique piece, which is exclusively owned by ken.

Yes, its timing gave rise to that fear.

Perhaps, Ken might want to consider a career in marketing :wink: . It's brilliant :D !

I propose that an auction is held to sell ken's unique whatsit.
I am quite prepared to start the bidding in this venture and I hope and trust that those of you who do not live on the Cote D'Ivoire, and thus have plenty of collateral in reserve already, will support this auction. The proceeds will be donated by ken (I hope) to something or somebody worthy of receiving it.

I start the bidding with 3 and a half pairs of socks, nearly new: 70%wool, 29% viscose, 1% toe nail. Colours, various. Size, indeterminable. Cost when brand new, 1 shilling and sixpence three farthings.

Hmmm.

Well, my dog Sarah would like to bid ALL of her extraneous fur (she's part husky, so there is alot), her new pink neckerchief, half a rawhide bone and her extreme hate for squirrels.

fingers crossed,

I have a small place on the Cote D’Ivoire (mortgaged) and one of Lenny’s prints (nearly paid for) but in the spirit of generosity set by Byron I will bid a retraction of all I said about Bob’s singing, a franchise opportunity on my little routine and in keeping with the Art theme, an atmospheric shot of the view from my windowless room in the Britannia Hotel in Manchester.

Ah, dear sweet lady, from this day whence, I shall never hear your name mentioned without thinking of 'bricks.' Or, plastered. Probably the latter.

Can I interest you in a half used tin of magnolia emulsion paint? To go with the picture of your hotel wall.
