Preliminary photos of the "Germs Lounge"...

...at the Jupiter Room*, a converted Victorian Era garage.









All of the artworks on this side of the room are by Jaime "GERMS" Zacarias.

He's on Instagram if you wanna look him up.

The other side has 11 more Germs pieces, and works by 15 or 17, not sure yet, different artists, such as Mark Ryden, Gary Baseman, JoKa, Robert Williams, myself and my son AbeK, along with others, and a tribute section to Marcel Duchamp, featuring my tiny repro of the Large Glass and a signed/numbered Jacques Villon (Marcel's brother) lithograph, plus a piece by Jean Sabrier.

I'll post pictures when I have them.

*From 1976-1977, the original "Jupiter Room" was in a sleazy studio apartment at the intersection of Hollywood Blvd & Whitley, directly across from Frederick's of Hollywood. It consisted of an easel and a giant red plastic and paper ceiling decoration called the Jupiter Spot.

1. I would love to sit on your couch and chairs

and just soak it all in. Even the colors, just by themselves are spectacular! Germs is a fantastic artist! Fascinating art!

4. One never knows, but if you made a reason to travel, maybe this could be it...

...if you came out here, I'd make sure to have Germs HIMSELF be here with a special welcome gift for you!

You could combine traveling to SoCal with something like, I don't know, visiting the L.A. County Arboretum.

That's the last place Atsuko and me went right before the trumpandemic hit, and we're thinking about going back soon.

It's like 10 minutes away from us.

Plus, who wouldn't wanna hit-up the Ronnie Reagan Presidented Libarry while in the area?!

Orrrr.........maybe not.

So, not wanting to travel much myself, I fully understand not wanting to travel.

I barely go anywhere except to the store these days.

And by "these days" I mean prolly the last five years or so.
