Obama by Alex Grey

Alex Grey is one of my favorite artists, right up there with Shepard Fairey and Banksy.

Speaking of art, I have been recently thinking of some new projects and I resurrected an old idea I was thinking of putting forth in a new way: International Art Machine. So I bought internationalartmachine.com and intlartmachine.com. I was thinking of something like the old Defunker (which seems to have merged with BustedTees) wherein people could upload their designs – and not just for t-shirts but prints, coffee mugs, etc. And some profits to go to charity. So a user-generated art project, commerce site, good causes giver . . . if only there were a blogger.com for ‘web 2.0’? Anyone? Anyone?

. . . Thanks to Klintron of Technoccult for the Obama link. Klintron is quite the bright young entrepreneur; he just launched an online store called: The Swift Fox. Plus, he has a model for a gf named Jillian who has her own online store featuring delectable handknit goods. Plus, he puts on “crazy happenings” . . . watch out for this kid, man. He’s got cult following potential.

where is your messiah now?

Dems Agree to Expand Domestic Spying, Grant Telecoms Amnesty

All the Democrats who voted for this are absolute, complete and total fucking pieces of shit – pieces of shit who just crawled out of Joe Lieberman’s ass.

Let me just remind you, dear reader, of a few salient facts about this the nightly news will not remind you of: 1) Bush started this illegal spying as soon as he got into office, not after 9-11. 2) A former AT&T employee testified to Congress about one room in San Francisco where they copied all transmissions – ALL TRANSMISSIONS – and not just those going out of country.

And I have been bullish on Obama lately, but where is our political messiah now?
