Comedy May Be the Ultimate Pusher of Boundaries

A reflection on art history reveals an undeniable connection between artistic expression and activism. The Wiki definition of activism is as follows: "...consists of efforts to promote, impede, or direct social, political, economic or environmental change, or stasis". Mirroring personal observations of society through art can be cathartic for the creator; but those who feel compelled to share it with others are…

Nihilism on a Lovely Morning

As I sit in bucolic retrograde

Like the Rolling Stones

“I watch the children play as tears go by”

In beauty and truth

Contemplating a world ruled by lies

Perpetrated by the elite

Prison industrial complex

Making us all willing slaves in their dystopic Hunger Games

My sweet headed baby boy eyes a colorful plastic toy Made in China

Later I watch RT news from Russia with love my Siberian sisters over the Bearing…

“Questions Concerning Art in the Age of Global Financial Gangsterism and the Death of the Nation

What is the role of the artist in a world where the rule of law has deteriorated everywhere,

where the numbers of the poor and disenfranchised across the globe grow in a geometric

progression, where a handful of individuals own the majority of the world’s wealth, where

injustice, murder, and atrocity, are sound business strategies? Is there any ethical way to make

art in the midst of what is becoming the greatest catastrophe of its own making humanity…

The False Narrative of the Hipster

The Hipster is the final form of consumer. He is the end point of the Western commercial consumer culture begun in Europe back in the 17th century. The Hipster is perfectly vapid. His mind possesses no coherent ideas, only pre-linguistic images all referring to products in an entirely commodified environment. For the hipster all is packaging and advertisement. There is no substance other than the production of images and affectations which…
