Refuge


















Perhaps this doesn't qualify.



















Oh, relax.



















Jeez, I said relax, Nazi douchebags. 



















Look at him, strutting around like he's cock of the walk. Well let me tell you, Homer Simpson is cock of nothing!



















The terrible name isn't the primary reason they're out of business, but it couldn't have helped. Or could it have? I don't understand folks, or anything, much.



















Don't mind the smudge, that's just the Duchess whose identity must remain secret if she's to continue fighting plutocrats through art & rescuing cats from trees even if she did conspire with a complete stranger to rudely & criminally enter my field of vision -- see how I deftly passed the buck? I just kind of liked the shot.



















I'm in favor of this constitutional amendment covering every square foot between borders, north & south, east & west, Euclidean & non-Euclidean space.

"Weak snark is your idea of a refuge?"



















How's this?

"Better."
























All about escape, if only temporary.



















Store sanity in a cool, dry place.
























Take that, heat, both internal & external.



















Someday I'll live in Lake Success.*

*probably not, but even a yahoo can hallucinate

I like that No Campaigning sign. TV viewing is gonna get worse and worse for the next year and a half as the ads and hit pieces get thicker and thicker.

Oh. My. Gawd.
Was that real live people I saw???

I might have exhaled .. in a way that was slightly like a "LOL".. when you said, "cock of the walk".

You so funny! (that's my best impression of Asian, to go along with the Foo Do (Poo) restaurant.)

I put some on my blog, too, Laura.

I guess I'm a bad influence on R.G.

Re: image No. 9. You can kind of gauge a city by the kind of stuff plastered on its phone and power poles. Judging by this one, Clevelandistan is a very depressed area.

Maybe the infusion of casino chic will add some la dolce vida.

What no marathon dancing or flag pole sitting yet? Then Cleavelanistan hasn't hit bottom yet.

tom, use your TV to watch Simpsons reruns and the daily viewing of Spinal Tap. You'll feel much better about the world.

laura, as I've said, Clevelandia isn't a post-apocalyptic war zone, but a pre-apocalyptic war zone.

Very Krusty of you, eh, ya hoser.

if, I'm not paying royalties, bub.

SWA, yes, Comic Sans' Space Casino will save us from ourselves.

In actuality, I'd wager the post office sticker album project looked pretty damn cool until some enterprising officer of authority gasped at the shocking disfigurement of such a beautiful slate grey hunk of metal a beacon of hope to us all, and attempted to scratch it off.

demeur, does marathon moping qualify?

"For your protection all activities on these premises all recorded by video surveillance."

Big Brother, always the concerned hyper-authoritarian tyrant.

BB, what was comical was on the way back, there was a rent-a-cop standing at the now-open gate eyeballing down the street, but I'm assuming that was because some yahoo was about to enter or exit. I can't even recall what the place was.

Image No. 1 says to me, "looking at life through a diamond prism." It feels like South Africa.

Randal Graves said...

We're not *as* bad at dismantling shanty towns & hiding the poor out of rich crackers' sight. Though give us time.

No distribution of literature beyond which point?

Randal Graves said...

That point. Is this a 21st century 'Who's on first?'
