{ the sweetest bee makes the thickest honey. }


Hey, come over here. Do you see all these bees? Iíve got a great idea: you take this long rope and tie it around my waist. Then Iíll pick up a stick, and rub some glue and sugar on it. Iíll climb into a tree with the stick and poke it at the beesí nest, and when the bees swarm out and settle on my stick, you pull the rope hard, and Iíll fall into the pond below. Iíll sink to the bottom, and while I hang out there, the bees will run out of air and die. Then Iíll swim to the shore and we can have a good laugh together. Thatís just one idea, Iíve got others.

Could anything bee better than the return of a familiar, good feeling that has not diminished in its absence, but instead grown stronger, and richer? Like a well-worn wooly sweater, stored away over the summer, and retrieved on the first brisk fall day? Or a lover released from prison after a long, unjust conviction? The first gulp of searing whiskey after years of tedious, numbing sobriety? Based on the newest crop of carefully recruited, thoroughly trained, and strategically deployed Beekiller content, it appears that nothing could.

A person can be an artist at many things, including pyrotechnics, rollerskating, phantomime, and food preparation. Beekiller?s art is the killing of bees, and she?s about to paint another solid mid-career piece.

Has there ever been a time in which the killing of bees seemed more urgent than now, and a place in which the quivering husks of dying bees were more welcome than here? If you answered the above question with a resounding ?No!? you may count yourself among an elite but growing number of global citizens who find their only fulfillment in life through the satisfaction of intense Bee-killing urges.




Dearest, sweetest Bee reader - Once again Beekiller arrives for you with an update from within the dark, clammy realms of New York?s most selflessly brilliant art collective. In this latest salvo, we provide an experience that is as educational and engrossing as a fragrant dish from an underdeveloped subtropical island-culture.

Beekiller.net is pleased to announce Out of Time, a puppet spectacle, by Chris Skeens and the Somnamble on October 10, 11 and 12 at chashama experimental theater.
