That’s right, Thomas Kinkade, painter of light, the most important artist of this or any century, got popped for DUI Monday night outside Carmel, California. Even more amazing, George Seurat painted the shirt he wore in his mugshot. POINTILISM!
Kinkade was booked into the Monterey County Jail on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving. Kinkade did submit to a blood test; however, the CHP is not releasing his blood-alcohol level. The arresting officer reported that Kinkade was “very polite” during the exchange. [SacramentoBee]
Yeah, I’d be polite too if I’d made millions of dollars painting some sh*t that looks like it came from a Candyland box. But wait, how is this movie related? Why, I’m glad you asked, f*ckface. A couple years ago, I reported on Lionsgate’s foray into faith-based filmmaking, including an adaptation of Kinkade’s painting “The Christmas Cottage.” Yep, an adaptation of a painting. A painting called “The Christmas Cottage.” After I reported it, I sort of forgot about it for a couple years, as is my way. But as it turns out, it’s already been filmed and released on DVD. Wanna see the trailer? OF COURSE YOU DO.
