Following on from Paul's post last night he has updated his blog to say all is now sweet in the land of Damon, Carlton and Ronie Midfew.
He has met with Ronie and they have formed a partnership for something other than the velvet painting idea that was the main thrust of DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.com
Following the meeting with Ronie they also managed to meet with Damon and Carlton to get their blessing for this new partnership.
Paul also says that because of the partnership he may not be updating the website for some time. However he also says that the gallery we still be published at midnight tonight (PST).
What this gallery will contain is not clear if Paul is not going to be using his velvet skills anymore. Also the post says "Let the hunt begin" so what will we be hunting ?
As well as Paul's news there is an update to the Ronie Midfew Arts website
This update confirms Paul's information and answers the question we have all been asking, his name is pronounced Ro-Knee.
This complete switch around is a bit of a mystery and doesn't seem to fit in with what we have been led to believe over the last few weeks. I think there are four possibilities here -
1. Paul has been brainwashed and is being manipulated by Ronie Midfew for some, as yet unknown, nefarious purpose.
2. Paul has been kidnapped and his blog has been taken over by Ronie, the picture of Paul with Damon and Carlton could be photoshopped, or edited in some way to make it look real.
3. A slightly whacky idea, but we (and it has to be we not just Paul, unless he has a trans dimensional blog) are shifting realities where in one reality Ronie, Damon and Carlton are nice, benevolent and on Paul's side, and in the other reality they are plotting against Paul - this would be the one where Mr Clucks exists and the original painting was thrown out as we saw.
4. The fourth option is the simplest one where everything is as it seems, but I'm not inclinded to believe that at the moment.
Many thnaks to the people that let me know about the new posts - Maven, Mary Jane, Kristaps
