I STILL JUST WANT TO BE A MILLIONAIRE (SO I CAN DO GOOD THINGS AND HELP PEOPLE)

Now here is a holiday sale! Jeff Dodson, from his Novato storage space, hawks 47+ boxes of art and miscellanea (I assume it’s growing) in exchange for a small fortune. I like the title; it embodies an intrepid lemonade-stand energy tempered by an aging artist’s pathos—the impatient still. ISJWTBAM(SICDGTAHP), as the artist cheekily refers to the work, can be bought for one million dollars (naturally), but Dodson also takes donations to the (currently at zero) “tip jar,” money which will be subtracted from the purchase price. Based on the home page’s rhetoric, the project’s motive appears largely environmental, the remainder sentimental and personal. Visit the website to arrange a viewing, or more likely, just to wander the vaunted vaults of the American Consumer. Don’t forget to bask in the details:

    NO HUEVOS, DIPPED IN BRUT BY FABERGE; early JAN 2007; 3 1/2x 5 1/2x 4 1/2; plastic, upholstery thread (Mastex Corp. Style E8685 nylon BZT-18 56G nominal, scarlet 757), marker ink, masking tape, post-its, more ink (inside contents undisclosed); 178 marker spots.
