The girl just vanished

November 4, 2013

the girl just vanishedOne of our students was knifed once in the back and twice in the chest over the weekend. He survived. Lucky kid. Some of these kids live in a much more violent world than what I grew up in. This particular kid is a big yacker. We have warned him to curtail his mouth. Its this climate of confrontation. And most often between young men (although not exclusively). Its very frightening.

Temple on the mountThe political situation in Toronto and the Mayor’s hold of a large segment of support in the city leads to only one conclusion. Torontonians are the stupidest citizens in the country.

she couldn't stop thinking about himI always thought that women were on a higher bracket than men, kinder, more ethical, sensitive, keener to see reality, honest. None of it is true. Or false. None of these qualities has anything to do with your sex.

I sort of miss it

Red Hair Green Grass2I was born with red hair. Orange actually. So was my sister. Both our parents had black hair. Which made us something like freaks. Red heads are generally not cute. They are different looking. And no red head that I know liked being a red head. As a child. Now that my hair has turned white, I sort of miss it.

Russia is spying on China. Canada is spying on Brazil. England is spying on Germany. And America is spying on everyone. But not spying. Just collecting the garbage of everything that is thrown out there. And like good anthropologists going through their findings for clues.

Underneath all of this spying are machines. They are collecting the info. Its their job. The reason for their existence. At some point they may share it… with each other.

50 years ago. Almost yesterday. The death of Kennedy. The creation of Camelot. What I recall years later, after Bobby’s and King’s murders was Jackie Kennedy remarrying. And leaving the country. To protect her children from them. Them.

She was a frightened woman. That tells you a lot of what is behind the curtain of myth, spin, and America.

No thank you, I've ..v2As I near the ending of my life I find that a great deal is being pruned. Energy, vitality, and illusions. I want to look life square in the eyes.

Mike Duffy's Pillow TalkThe Mike Duffy Two StepWe’re having quite the time over the recent scandal in the Federal Government. And at the centre of it all for awhile is always rotund Mike Duffy. These are two illustrations, ‘Mike Duffy’s Pillow Talk’ and ‘The Mike Duffy Two Step’.

 

An exact copy

October 21, 2013

Mike Duffy's Pillow TalkPhotography is only about 150 years old. But for the masses, it has only been relevant for the last 100. Painting though older has always been for a small minority of rich folks. In a thousand years or perhaps less we will have galleries of photos and will see for the first time if the human face (your face) keeps repeating itself. Someone 5 generations from now may find out that you are an exact copy.
