Damn! “This is America!”


About anyone with a pulse right now is noticing this video … And in this market of a day later is too long … I have to pass this one along anyway.

The filmmaking is amazing. The performance level is through the roof. And for me, it’s about as diametric as it gets. The joy of dance meets the violence of schools, the streets, everyday life.

It’s a mind fuck with a special twist.

And we need more artists that art like this.

Fuck.

Tina and I unboxed one of those online-order mattresses … we LOVE it.


Tina and I have been working with a mattress company lately to capture both video and stills of their product for marketing.

After about 3 weeks sleeping on this mattress, I can definitely say that it’s some of the best sleep I’ve ever had.

It took a couple weeks to get used to it, but now I find myself wanting to go to bed to enjoy the mattress. It’s more comfortable than sitting in front of our TV. ha.

 

Michelle Wolf’s Correspondents’ Dinner routine wins my vote


 

I’m hearing so many people are upset, appalled, and boo-hooing over Michelle Wolf’s standup routine at the Correspondents’ Dinner. The list includes the president, Mike Huckabee and even the snowflakes over at Fox & Friends:

“Michelle Wolf, like Stephen Colbert in front of George Bush, was wildly inappropriate and performing for a crowd that was not in attendance. That crowd, OK, many of whom were probably laughing at Colbert. Very few, I can tell you, were laughing at Michelle Wolf. Cringing, more likely. Because — because there was a victim. With comedy, the victim should be powerful people. They shouldn’t be Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And if you’re going to mock them, you have fun with it, but you don’t make fun of them.” – Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade, speaking on this morning’s show.

Cry rivers, you yahoos!

It was funny. It was sharp. And it was a woman tearing everyone in the room and some people outside … a collective new set of assholes.

In other news, Mark Rubio admits that the GOP tax cut is a bust: ‘No evidence that money’s been poured back into the American worker’. 

Unravel. Everything’s unraveling. Please unravel faster.

 

The adventures of Meady Ogre Continue!


april-portrait_0070-b.jpg

A couple of years ago, I created a character named Meady Ogre who lives in the Mad Max universe. The guy I used to photograph my idea is someone I think could live in the Mad Max universe. He’s a mechanic and super knowledgeable about the world of motorcycles and custom creations.

I asked him if he would sit for another portrait based on my 2018 Photo Challenge. April has a theme of “Unusual Angle.” So I did some plates of him wearing this scuba mask and then created a new world around him based on some Parisian photographs I took in the past.

Dip below the fold to see behind the scenes and the previous photos I did of Meady Ogre.

The First Female President


The first female president will have five children by three different men. Nobody will care. Her extramarital affairs with porn stars will be a matter of public record. She won’t be called a slut. She’ll be accused by 19 people of sexual assault. It won’t affect her political standing in the slightest. She’ll be caught on tape saying that she likes to “grab men by the dick.” It’ll pretty much blow over in a few weeks. The first female president will threaten nuclear war against an unstable adversary, fire the FBI director investigating her for treason, feud with more than one family of a dead U.S. soldier, defend white supremacists, attempt to ban Muslims from entering the U.S., encourage the public to find a sex tape belonging to a Miss Universe contestant and accuse her predecessor of literally founding ISIS, one of the largest and deadliest terrorist factions in the world.

The first female president will be rotten to her core — arguably the most selfish and incompetent person we’ve ever elected into public office. Rather than becoming an example of what happens when you elect a woman into a position of power, though, around half of the public will simply deem her a breath of fresh air and continue to elect women as U.S. presidents until the end of time.
