http://post.ly/1JiCq John Wayne Gacy: Serial Killer Clown Christmas Recipes and Me
John Wayne Gacy « clown tueur » Christmas Dinner 1969 "Christmas at Anamosa"
Rick Staton was the first 'dealer' of the 'art' of John Wayne Gacy, prodding him to begin an endeavor which would rival Henry Ford, if Henry Ford had murdered several dozen boys and spent the last years of his life in prison painting copies of Model T's and Neon Calvin Coolidges...
Rick Staton was a nice guy. I liked the fact that he was a mortician AND was as obsessive back in the day as I have turned out to be--always flittering from one submenu of the Grindhouse or other (in fact, Rick's Mail Order Co. was the first such company to bear the name 'Grindhouse Graphics'--there have since been many imitators in his dotage).
O there are many stories I could tell.
I kinda wish I'd made the trip to visit JWG in Prison with Rick and my bandmate, Donald Spicer--if for no other reason than for the Polaroids they snapped (just think if there had been a social network back then--that would have taken the Facebook Profile Pic Prix de Prison Prize).
However, not without my own stories am I. I'm proud to say that some time in the '90s (hazy) I conceived, organized, and promoted, if not the first (Rick showed some Gacy's in Seattle with Tobias Allen the year previous), the most violent and well-attended (featuring Joe Coleman), BEST!!!
"Death Row Art Show"
right at the New Orleans, French Quarter Art Gallery for which I held tenure as director of INSANITY.
What Did the Charitable Organization say when offered 15% of the Art Show's GROSS?
What did Joe Coleman do when I attacked a would-be shoplifter of one of his books with a 12" long Hunting Knife like an overly amped kamikaze pilot as his reward?
