during Tuesday night’s RNC, via my twitter feed:

- Do you think it’s a coincidence that the background behind the RNC speakers is an image of human sperm undulating in a cervix?

- At McDonald’s today I said hello to a table full of seniors who were talking about the RNC. One said to me, “Chris Christie’s a real firecracker!” between phlegm-clearings.

- RNC drinking game: just drink.

- The GOP base may be white, but their souls are beige.

- Idea for a new GOP issue: why light beige-colored Crayons can’t be named “flesh” again (like pre-1962?) I could see Bill O’Reilly screaming for an hour about this.

- Ann Romney is caparisoned in a lovely red dress.

Art Follies!

Back in 2009 I created a three-part comic strip called “Art Follies!” for WFMU’s Beware of the Blog. It was about 20th Century artworks coming to life and battling it out for critical supremacy… kind of like Art History 101 meets Star Wars. Anyway, I paid it a re-visit:

Art Follies! Pt. I
Art Follies! Pt. II
Art Follies! Pt. III

The bizarre child’s voice narration in Fellini’s “Temptation of Dr. Antonio” from BOCCACCIO ‘70 is identical to 80’s Christian recording artist Lil’Markie doing “Diary of an Unborn Child.” Was Mark Fox (aka ‘Lil Markie’) a secret cinephile?

You would think people with no sense of humor would have more highly-developed other senses, like an acute sense of reason or logic. Like how blind people can sometimes hear better. But, no.

I hate driving by a crowded church just letting out. When people leave filled with the glory of Christ, they suddenly become the world’s worst drivers.
