last full year

Earlier today I realised that 2011 is my last full year in Australia, which made me sad and happy - no way to explain wanting to remain and leave a place simultaneously. Stay tuned...

debris project

So, I've begun working on the Debris project. I sent out a call on FB, requesting people to sweep their street debris then scan it and email it to me. Even though I've only received 4 images, I've been able to react and get something going that I'm pretty damn happy with so far. If all 20 or so people follow through, this thing has the potential to expand into something massive. Definitely one of the more ambitious pieces I've worked on in quite some time. Peter Greenaway is the obvious inspiration here.

DADT and Rev Fred Phelps

So, DADT wasn't overturned today in the Senate. That's depressing. It's like 5 year old children in charge of a really big machine. Let's call a spade a spade, it's people's religious beliefs that drive this insanity; rather, the religious beliefs of their constituents. Reid called the vote early, some of the Senators freaked out...blah, blah, blah. At the end of the day, it's cowardice, and after a while, it gets to you. I sometimes wonder, why do I give a shit?

I saw today that the Rev Fred Phelps is going to protest Elizabeth Edwards' funeral. I can't even begin to fathom what goes on in his brain. I think it is funny (and a bit sad) that people of 'faith' say he will burn in Hell. I'm like, no, he won't. Hell doesn't exist. That's the rub. However, Phelps will continue to make a lot of people's lives here on Earth, hell. I seriously can't wait for this jackass to die, so I can picket at his funeral. I think I'll carry a sign that says: FRED IS DEAD, MAY HIS BODY ROT IN THE COLD GROUND.

in case you were wondering...

One would have thought that I had forgotten how to type with all of the these images, and all...rest assured that I still have thoughts and I can communicate them textually...but seriously, who has the time?
