Legendary West Hartford Halloween House Features Pirate ‘Ship of State’

The annual Halloween scene on the front lawn of West Hartford resident Matt Warshauer’s North Main Street home makes another overtly political statement this year.

Even Matt Warshauer admits that he has outdone himself this year with the Halloween scene he has created on the lawn in front of his West Hartford home.

Warshauer, a professor at Central Connecticut State University and a political historian who has become known for creating elaborate and message-laden Halloween displays for well over a decade, built an elaborate and overtly-political “Trump wall” last year that garnered national and even international attention in the midst of a vitriolic election season. Past displays have included a Vietnam scene complete with a downed helicopter and the the Roman Colosseum.

It didn’t take long for Warshauer to get inspired for this year’s display.

“I got this idea earlier than I ever have – literally the day after the election,” he said. “It’s been disastrous on so many levels,” he said of the Trump presidency.

“I said to myself, ‘My God, the ship of state has gone totally off course,’” Warshauer said. “So I built a giant pirate ship.”

The ship is 50 feet long. The sides are 10 feet high, and the masts and rigging stretch 20 feet into the air. “It’s a bit of a feat of engineering – and mania,” said Warshauer.

He prefabricated the ship in pieces, crafted from cardboard attached to a lightweight wood frame, and staged the display in his backyard. It was ready to be screwed together and set up, as is his custom, on the last weekend in September. His three daughters, some of their friends, and some of his friends also helped and Warshauer estimates that he personally put in at least 80 hours this year.

Last week we published a new work about the Lee family. All the Lee’s from A to Z. Well low and behold Mr. Dickie Lee called us up and said, “Hey what about me?” “Can’t I be in the art show too?” “Well,” said Goosey Bell, “Ok,” said Mabel, “Why not,” said Richie, “Get going and look through our archives somewhere in archive land and find Dickie Lee’s work from 1994, Until We Meet Again, Kiss My Mono Print, and let’s publish it.”  Dickie was always the one who would do prints of his private parts and loved to use Portrait Pink. “You know said Emma to Moe,” I saw Dickie Lee naked once and this print does him no justice.” He must of put paint on someone else and used it as if it were his.

We hope among all of the evil going on, with all the crap coming out of DC, and with all of the drum beats for war that this piece will give some of our readers a little chuckle.

NOTE:

Back in the day Emmo O. Furbird and Cassey Role ran a mail art gallery. This work as noted was sent to them by Dickie Lee.

Or lipstick on a pig!

Well us old gals are at it again. Traveling in search of a new home. This should be our last trip. We have contacts who have contacts who are in the know of where to live and where to go. Where to stay away from and where to check out.  Someone told us Vermont is full of cows, well we said even if we don’t drink milk, eat cheese or ice cream we love cows. Bonnie said with giggles, “you should see the place during rush hour, cows here, cows there, cows everywhere.” Yeah okay we will be in the city where we are sure there are very few cows. We’ll see some cows from the train give them a moo moo and be glad we don’t have to clean the barn. We love cows even if they do a job on the ozone. “I have to wonder,” said Bessy Marie, “do cows ever escape the field and come and stand on the train tracks?” I really hope they don’t as the train has no cow catcher in the front of it and if we hit such a creature it would be all over for the cow and cause delays. ( 1 ) Let’s hope not said Olga, lets hope the cows know where they at suppose to be and if they go anywhere else they will not hear the dinner bell. Here is a little song to start us on our way.

I am Cow, by Arrogant Worms.

Rush Hour In Vermont.

 

Lots of these on our trip. No worry the train is only 5 cars long. We were happy we weren’t waiting to cross the road or go on through to the other side of the tracks in Springfield as there was a freight train with almost 75 cars passing by.

The train route

We know that by the time the train gets to us the bathrooms can be and usually are very smelly. Olga is the smart one in the bunch always brings a mask to wear when she is in the toilet. I just can’t sit there and smell that horrid smell, do my business and not have vomited all over the floor. Then the train folks would have another mess to clean up. So I get one of those masks fold it up keep in in my pocket along with a Lysol wipe or two. No telling what germs lurk around in the train. Germs are a funny thing can’t see them but if they get into you man can they do a job. Both of us gals are too old for that and thank our lucky stars we haven’t contracted anything this past winter on top of what either one of us have all ready. We take our Elderberry syrup each and every day. Getting old, now that is a whole other story. We don’t know too many old folks to sit around with and talk about getting old. I wish we did as then we would say, “Hey we don’t have it all that bad.” At the very least we would know what this getting old is all about and if this or that pain is worth complaining about. Maybe it will go away in a couple of days.

Gals like us love the train. Having never learned to drive we take it all the time. You know the things you see on the train are much different than what you see in a car whizzing by at 60 miles per hour. These highways leave a lot to be desired as far as good scenery is concerned. Trees, cars, trees, cars. We love the train we get to see the backside of the cities, usually the older part, the graffiti along the tracks is always something to marvel at, an art show caught out of the corner of our eyes and then it retreats into the distant. Last time we were amazed at all of the mullein patches along the tracks. Huge Mullein plants, skunk cabbage, and ferns, ferns, ferns all along the tracks edge and into the woods. Something we very rarely see around these parts are white birch trees. The white lines among the green and brown, lovely. We came home last year in October and what a site to see out the windows of the trees changing colors. Never saw such beauty. What will we see in the spring time wondered Bessy Marie, of course we will be north and hopefully the gardens of tulips near the State Capitol will be in bloom. (more…)

We nearly spit out our morning tea when we saw this on our facebook page. What kid of fools are these folks.

Yeah you all get the Jerks of the week prize. Keep it up and we just may give it out next week and the week after to you folks again. Get you ideas right. Here is our response on the facebook page.

This takes the cake or make it two for JERKS OF THE WEEK. Who the fuck believes that liberation can come through legislation? That is like saying Hillary Clinton is in the resistance. Stop using revolutionary words to explain away your liberal bull shit. Reform maybe but not liberation. Stop using revolutionary words and ideas to fit your liberal agenda. You are embarrassing those who have come before and causing a massive rolling over in the graves of our martyrs who fought the real fight so people all around the world would be liberated from the likes of evil systems.

To think that the word and concept of liberation would ever fit inside of a state capitol building is absurd. Foolish to say the least. Heads on backwards. Need a new hat maybe. We can tell you as a fact that if you are looking for liberation via the democrat party think again about that evil twin. They may be holding your hand now but remember how they are and can be when in power. But of course we don’t expect any of the folks in the liberal wing of the anti-trump movement to understand any of this. They just hear the words but don’t know the program.

The words of Socialist Feminist revolutionary Gloria Martin comes to my mind when she said, “We have to fight for survival issues–better pay, benefits, abortion rights, child care. But then we have to go further. We have to change the system, because as long as the system is the same, we’ll be fighting all our lives for the same thing….When people have had enough, revolution can happen suddenly.” We would think that the idea of liberation would come in along the line of ” We have to change the system” Most of our readers do not have to be reminded of what our great Black, Lesbian, warrior poet mother Audre Lorde said or what she meant when she said, “the masters tools will never dismantle the masters house.” No they won’t and when we try to use them all we will get is we are tools of the ruling class. Let’s not be fooled by fake revolutionary sayings by spouted off by liberals, let us leave it at that as I am in no mood for a war.

We wish we were going to be home on May 8th. We would go and disrupt this program.

UPDATE: They deleted my comment from their page. I guess they just don’t get it. Now what do you expect?

You deleted my comment but the truth remains. There is no liberation through legislation. Please do not continue to disrespect our Black, Brown and white martyrs in this country and all around the world who fought so people could be truly liberated. I never thought I would see the day when the democrats are considered the vanguard. How soon we forget liberation does not come from the painless activity of state capitols.
