Creator of ‘The Wire’ says ‘There are now two Americas. My country is a horror show.’
I’m utterly committed to the idea that capitalism has to be the way we generate mass wealth in the coming century. That argument’s over. But the idea that it’s not going to be married to a social compact, that how you distribute the benefits of capitalism isn’t going to include everyone in the society to a reasonable extent, that’s astonishing to me.
I love the Vulgar Army which bills itself as the go to place for the use of Octopus in propaganda and political cartoons. I am in my own personal heaven right now. It's like someone crawled into my mind and massaged my sweet spot. EWWW. That sounds perverse. Just like Octopus love.
You can see from each and every cartoon that the octopus is not a figure of joy. It's always BAD to be represented by the octopus. They are never on the side of what's good and right. Coincidental or brilliant character analysis? You know what side of the argument I fall on. Wow, 36 pages of this stuff to go through. If you want to know more detail about any of these images go to the page. It's very well done as a resource. Once again thanks to Brother Erik for the great find.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
