Not scared by a spider  Then maybe the view of a man in black face will send willies up your spine  If you are a creature with one  Arachnids are not racists They evolved that way for a reason  Survival

photo shop gone mad

Used to promote a TV show  -  would the devil be caught looking like this   Is creativity a matter of software choices   In days of old talent in all the arts was recognized worthy regardless of the artist's stability   A few had genuine talent and even fewer did not let that ability destroy them  In my opinion this is image apocalyptic

   Maybe viewers of this humble blog will be able to identify with the above  The twenty first century woman   Another unfortunate course of historical development   Or is it

Artificial Intelligence another oxymoron

Industrial AI  How people do work with technology  This is an add  that sells industrial technology.  Like any other large corporation the bottom line is their most important product.  This entry is here because it shows the state of  technology to date and how AI still depends on people to make the final decisions. 

Man is yet to be in control of his own intelligence (wars, famines, genocide, inept political practice...)  How is this transfer of ability to machines expected to be entirely successful  At most AI will be useful and allow complexity to manage an ever growing world population

Rubles for peace

Don't you hold a position of power with responsibilities to your own
people and the well being of others who may not be Russian
All those rubles spent on sophisticated weapons could improve university  give jobs to the unemployed   benefit the general well being of Russian citizens who are good people
56 rubles = 1 dollar

A helping hand

Truth or consequences

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”

― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Is instinct driven leadership the wise way for a man with so much potential power?  No one to listen to?  Everyone second guessing each other without incurring lack of faith, their job and moral compromise?  Or is this just politics as usual.  I don't think so.

Who lives with guns

the assault rifle has no place outside of a war zone and is an assured weapon of mass death

A 2005 law  the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act protects gun manufacturers from
being liable under almost all circumstances when crimes are committed with guns.

I have been drawing for a long time.  This charcoal was done on a 3x5" memo
pad.  The style is early Roman.  Presentation of published articles by magazine companies, my own artwork from different mediums and photography is chosen at my own discretion without regard to viewers preferences.  My blog is a record of what I like.

Narco culture is death wrapped in others tears  The good done is real  but often a diversion that can't be justified by loss of life and terror

Who served


Yes, most upper middle class males did not serve in the Vietnam War.  I enlisted anyway because I could not, at the time, read on a college level.  Therefore the draft was eminent.  After joining the service I refused to cheat by means of distributed answers to an upcoming electronics test at Kessler Air Force base. I failed the test and was removed from military electronics training.  My assignment then became 'Cook'.  The four year enlistment could never have been anticipated: one year in Biloxi Mississippi, one year in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, and two years forty miles from Seville Spain. The rest is a fairy tale for a young romantic with artistic ambitions.  

One last note.  Loudspeakers did play the popular songs of 1965 during one rainy day at basic training.  I can still hear the words sung by Aretha Franklin.
