Do they have rehab for this sort of thing?

Oops, I did it again. (Damn you, Britney Spears, for hijacking a perfectly good phrase!)

Yoshi says that the only reason I am working Job #3 now is just to support my habit.

What habit? My Jobe Benjamin habit. It is bad. BAD!

Except for the fact that it was actually framed (bronze frame to go with the print) and matted, this is what I bought...

Enticing Marlon Brando, by Jobe Benjamin
Enticing Marlon Brando (Description: PHOTO PRINT BY JOBE BENJAMIN Photo print, entitled "Enticing Marlon Brando" by Jobe Benjamin, (American, b.1956) initialed and dated 2003, 22" x 15"; unframed. Est: $600-$800)

There's an awesome story behind (no pun intended) the print I bought. It's called "Enticing Marlon Brando" because Jobe and the model went out on Mullholland Drive (outside Brando's house) to do this shoot. Without Mr. Brando's permission, of course. That wall is right up on the property line. Imagine Jobe out there in the middle of the day on Mullholland with a naked chick, taking pictures for close to an hour, before Brando's security guards came out and chased them away.

Emily asked "so, did it entice him?"

Well, the answer to that is up to our imaginations!

At least I exercised restraint and didn't buy this one:
You Mean... Like This?, by Jobe Benjamin
You Mean... Like This? (Description: PHOTO PRINT BY JOBE BENJAMIN Photo print, entitled "You Mean.....Like This?" by Jobe Benjamin, (American, b.1956), initialed and dated 2003, 15" x 22"; unframed. Est: $600 - $800)

I can't decide if I like the Red Stripe/Blue Stripe set I bought better, or 'Enticing Marlon Brando.'

Do you like one more than the other?

Incredible. I think you should look at the pictures as an investment. They will only gain value.

Just think, in a few years, we can visit the very trendy ::jozjozjoz:: museum of addictive art and enticing poses.

(By the way, I posted the TiVo details you requested.)

Don't prefer one over the other, but I do picture framing for a living (ok, i work to support my habbits too:) ) VERY NICE! I agree about the value. Frame them right and you can't go wrong!

I like "Enticing Marlon Brando" the best.

I dunno...I hate to give my opinion on something as lofty as 'art'.
