Photo 1.8:  Commodus Inceptus by R. E. Nixon

Photo 1.8: Commodus Inceptus by 

I think every president of the U.S.A should have an official portrait of himself. Don’t you?

It’s been said Americans get the president they deserve. I hope the one we have now IS the one we, and others, deserve.

I honestly believe we do. For once.

I’d like to do something honoring him. (Obama, not Bush) I’d welcome suggestions as I’d like it to be something worthy of the effort.

If you desire words on Bush, those I can give: deceit, stupidity, idiocy, managed by monsters of decrepitude, foolishness, fear in the face of duty; failure in EVERYTHING he did, even embraced by his family’s money, an absolute unwillingness to admit he might have fucked up here or there, and he couldn’t even admit gas might hit 4 bucks a gallon.

WE elected him. (I didn’t. Ever.)

For shame, America.

My girlfriend will probably make me take this off tomorrow. But it is how I feel.

Sarah keeps me from self-destructing. I don’t know that I appreciate that, but it’ll get more work out of me, and that may or may not be a good thing.

I was really interested in going to sleep, but was so taken and intrigued by Quorn’s rules, I stayed up an extra 15 minutes.

Cruel. Bastards.

This is not a love song.

But I would like it to be. Soft hearted fool that I am.

    Can I comment on my own work? Why not. An idiot, controlled by monsters, with weapons of mass distortion and destruction at his fingertips. A fucking waste of time and flesh.

    I think I won’t comment on this further than to say that it seems that we agree on politics, at any rate…
    I’m glad this image is still here.
    I think I would find it very difficult to separate the aesthetics and technique from the concept here…. (I don’t really want to, anyway :)
    And – did you notice that I am currently (officially) a host of QUORN (lol)?
    PS – if talking to me more about our work will get you into trouble – then we should stop this.
