on the hunt for good art

Wirth Motor Co.

Monday, February 28, 2011 · 5 Comments

File this under artists with brilliant business ideas. Tim Wirth, who lives in the flat lands of northern Iowa with his wife and kids, recently launched Wirth Motor Co, which sells commissioned 17″ paintings of your beloved (or fantasy) car.

Wirth accepts “All makes & models. New or Old. Fast or Slow. Polished or Demolished. Good or Bad.” Once Tim finishes your painting you can keep it for yourself or relinquish it to the Used Lot for someone else to take home.

Brilliant, right?

    You wrote: I fund Police and Fire even though I haven’t cleald on them once. Lucky me. The social contract is that I pay into the system to help maintain community safety and also so that I’ll get trained, dedicated and potentially life-saving services when I need them. I think it’s similar for libraries; you pay into the system and when you need access to information the library will be there. The access to technology argument is low-hanging fruit when it comes to library advocacy, but access to information is far less specific. I’m an adult librarian and I get questions about all sorts of things: where get copies of birth certificates, student research today a couple came in and asked me to help them navigate a very confusing District Court website from across the country to find the status of their daughter’s divorce proceedings. That’s the service they’re paying into if not the library, where would these folks go?

    Great seeing Barry beat up. I’m not as famiilar with his days as a babyface jobber, though I remember him with Mike Rotunda in the WWF. I wonder if Barry took out some of his frustrations with being a rag doll when he became the heel. Windham is in the top 5 of heels I would have loved to have been dominated by. He completely knew how to destroy a jobber, from Tommy Angel to Brad Armstrong. He especially liked yanking on the trunks, something, we now know, he knew about from the other end.
