I love how the fine folks over in Japan always manage to remix 'Amercan' culture, for example, i've met hard core Japanese Rastafarians and pan Africans and you've seen the strange barbie looking gals. I really do love it. Well, Obama, the Japanese city has found a new American icon, Barack Obama and has decided to boost tourism by selling tees and cakes with the candidates face on them. Amazingness! Read more about it here
"This transition ought to lead to free and fair elections, and I mean free and I mean fair. Not these kinds of staged elections that the Castro brothers try to foist off as being true democracy," Bush said. Can he really speak on staged elections? Him of all people, uh hemmm, Florida?
"And we're going to help. The United States will help the people of Cuba realise the blessings of liberty."'Blessing of liberty, wow, the US could learn a lesson to two from the 99% literate, fully health covered Cubans. After those lesson, let's talk about the 'Blessings of liberty'
Can't say that Fidel was a saint, but let's keep the whole situation in perspective.
I am very intrigued with words that we give too much power to, such as Nigger. Check out what he has to say about the title of his new album. The most fascinating part of this is the reporters demeanor and reactions to his comments.
These days I've been feeling really techie. Me and the interenets have a real "intense" relationship. I absolutely love browsing and all the wonderful stuff that exists on line, love designing sites but when it comes to building sites, that part drives me a bit bonkers and I tend to hire a programmer for the dirty code stuff.
I recently completed Temporary Gallery's site (with out a programmer) and like how it turned out so that inspired me to give dookyblog.com a facelift. I always intended dookyblog to be a stand alone site but out of I guess lazyness it ended up a blogger blog. I love google as much as the next person and was super happy when they aquired blogger because it made the whole interface alot easier to use, but like all good sweaters I out grew them and am in the beta staged of dookyblog.com still attempting to export my blogger blog to this one...worpress keeps telling me it should be easy but I beg to differ 😉 It's not like I can have only one pot on the stove...so I've takin' on junkprints.com too.
Here's the goal for junkprints: Get a few items up and for sale directly through junkprints.com, while directing customers to my whole line which is showcased on etsy.com. Don't worry etsy, I'm not leaving you...just expanding. I tried OScommerce and zen cart as cart applications, and I was able to modify the CSS info to get the 'store' looking okay...but not great and I kept having strange security problems so for now I've settled on 'buy now' options for each item. (until I can find a snazzy PHP programmer who wants a bit of buisness) In the mean time These are screen shots of the site so far. Let me know yer thought...and any programmers out there, let's be friends!
Fresh off the presses! I just made this one today and it's on the site. I need to draw...just sit and draw and as part as my procrastination with drawing I've been designing these nifty huge bags. This one is already available for purchase. Think I'm just making one, so that I can keep making new ones...(and have time to draw)
I've felt the need to make bags. Lately that's all I've been inspired to do. I'm really playin with scale check out these hujormous bags...these are the types yer doctors want you about. This one is not on the site yet, but will be avaiable at Market NYC tomorrow! I'll be there selling my goodies. Stop by and say hi 😉
A friend of mine sent this to me this morning, its a paper mache float of Bin Ladin bathing in blood (doesn't he look like a chef in tomato sauce) and was used in the Düsseldorf's Rose Monday Carnival. They must think that Americans are retards, and w/ the type of leadership we currently have, who could blame them! This parade looks like fun, they have a good sense of humor, 100 times better than the Macy's Day Parade! Read more here.

as if the cloudy day wasn't enough...some bloke left these wonderful skates on the curb...was it that depressing?
When I saw these I was instantly reminded That Empire Roller skating rink had closed...the last Roller rink within the boroughs...pour out some liquor...it was home of the Roller disco for goodness sake!
