And here we have a cute Asian Softbody, half-dressed on the beach with her saxaphone because … I don’t have a clue. Given the look on her face, the model also has no clue what going on or why it is.

Absolutely extraordinary, Gentlemen! Just how I’d picture an American chapter of LOEG circa 1988.

Yeah, that’s about as iconic as one can get when it comes to how so many Americans react to any prediction of severe weather. 🙄

Painted In Blood & Irony

Posted in Art, Society on October 3rd, 2015

During the morning of Tuesday, September 29, 2015 a street artist, identified by friends as Antonio Ramos, in Oakland, CA was gunned down and killed while working on a community art project, the Oakland Superheroes Mural Project which is a project sponsored by Oakland’s Attitudinal Healing Connection.

Yes, this is sad. Indeed, it approaches the level of tragedy. It should, however, have been an expected outcome. It’s not rational to believe that one can to empower individuals to be self-aware and inspired through arts, creativity and education, making positive choices to break the cycle of violence for themselves and their communities in the ghettos and barrios. Crime and depravity are too entrenched for such efforts to work at any meaningful level and too many of the population of those zones will actively work against such efforts.

At best, such civic minded entertainments should await comprehensive law enforcement purges of the ghettos and barrios before being attempted. Otherwise, the street art ends up, as in Mr. Ramos’ sad case, painted in blood and irony.
