Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No by James Blagden

I remember seeing the trailer for this film online. It's a short that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival! Personally I think it's kinda funny! It doesn't matter what ya'll think! This is my blog! :) Below Dock Ellis gives a brief summary of this animated short:

"I was in Los Angeles, and the team was playing in San Diego ,but I didn't know it. I had taken LSD.....I thought it was an off-day, that's how come I had it in me. I took LSD at noon. At 1pm, his girlfriend and trip partner looked at the paper and said, "Dock, you're pitching today!"

When the Fox Hears the Rabbit Scream He Comes A Running....but, not to Help!!!

It's amazing to me how the American media will take proven facts, turn them into lies and present them back to we the people as the truth!

On January 21, 2010 Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez was stated saying that the 7.0 magnitude Haiti earthquake was caused by the testing of an experimental shock wave system that could also create floods, droughts, hurricanes and other weather anomalies. Chavez also goes on to state how the 2008 Sichuan earthquake in China may have also been caused by the experimental shock wave system. The media instantly presented Chavez's idea of such a system even existing being ludicrous and a far fetched; while at the same time telling we the people the exact name (HAARP) and location of the system and it's uses.

HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is an ionospheric research facility in Alaska, jointly funded by the US Air Force, US Navy, the University of Alaska and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). Based on the research and patents of Nikola Tesla's Teleforce weapon or Death Ray when active HAARP releases more then One Billion watts of energy into the upper ionosphere recreating the same effects of the sun. When the same One Billion watts of energy is aim into the ground, the vibration it causes is powerful enough to cause earthquakes. Chavez goes on to saying that the earthquake in Haiti was an excuse for the United States to invade and militarily occupy the nation; with the ultimate goal being the destruction of Iran through a series of earthquakes designed to topple the current Islamic regime.

Maybe I'm crazy but, I find none of Chavez's claims over the top! The fact that out of some 195 known countries the United States military occupies 156 of them, only tells me that America is nothing more then a new age Empire; using our military to achieve great territorial gains much the same as the Romans did before us. Tesla once referred to his Teleforce weapon, now (HAARP) as a superweapon; capable of ending wars. If President Chavez is right (which I wish he wasn't) HAARP might just put an end to alot more then wars.

Wake Up> Fall of The Republic

In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is more safe store of value. Gold stands as a protector of property rights. -Alan Greenspan

Paper is poverty, it is only the ghost of money and not money itself. -Thomas Jefferson

Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls energy can control whole continents; who controls money controls the world. -Henry Kissinger

Give me control of the nation's money supply and I care not who makes it's laws. -Mayer Rothchild

We the people are in control of our governments! Not the other way around! Wake Up!

Daily Inspiration 2> Artist: Greg "Craola" Simkins

While at the book store trying to find inspiration I picked up the newest issue of HI•FRUCTOSE. After flipping throw the pages I came across the work of Greg "Craola" Simkins and to my excitment, I had found the inspiration I seeked in all of 15 min. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

Artist Statment
After years of chasing the monsters under his bed, Greg “Craola” Simkins has reemerged into the everyday world to create images of what he saw in those forgotten lands. Simkins didn’t always use a paintbrush to display this mob of characters, but spent many of his early years filling sketchbooks with images that were later spray-painted on walls, and finally found their way onto canvases. It is his careful weaving of pop culture, the old masters, nature, carnival kitsch, and (most importantly) his warped imagination, that makes Greg Simkins a sought-after surrealist painter today.

Beauty comes in All Sizes!!! Curves Ahead: Photographer Sølve Sundsbø

As a culture I feel that we have grown so accustom to a certain standard of beauty; that when a different version of beauty comes along we so often don't even notice it. In every magazine all we see are the tall super (skinny) models and we accept that as what it is to be beautiful. When the truth is that's the furthest thing from the truth! When I came across these images I loved them right away. Not only do they show that beauty is not only limited to a size double 0-4 but, they also show me that true beauty comes in all sizes.

I Love Japan> Artist: Kim, Duck-Yong

I've never believed that ideas actually come from us but, rather thru us. It's funny how we can think of an idea, and then months or even days later someone else comes up with a similar idea. When I saw Kim, Duck-Yong's work I fell in love with it. Not only because of the simplicity but, more so for the fact it looked ten times better then a similar idea I once had. Seeing his work taught me that when an idea rest on you for a moment you should run with it. And other times you should just let it go and let someone else do the running!

A is for Awesome! The Noir A-Z: Photographer Julian Hibbard

It's been a little more then a year since I visited my friend Julian at his home in NYC. I remember him telling me that he wanted me to see something that would explain what his years of shooting were leading up to. He pulled out a velvet maroon bag that contained I hand made book filled with his images; and beside them one of every alphabet and word to describe each image. I was amazed when I saw what he had created and surprised when he told me he had yet to find anyone to publish it. Fast forward a year later and The Noir A-Z has been published and getting great reviews. It's funny how the universe will never give someone such an amazing gift with out the ability to share it with the world. Your vision is a true gift Jules! Thank you for sharing with me and the world!

I've added a few images for your and my own viewing pleasure. I hope they inspire you as much as they have me!

PaperCraft Couture: Photographers Alexandra Zaharova & IIya Plotnikov

I have a few photographer friends who tell me how they never look at magazines or the portfolios of others photographers work. The reason they say, is because their afraid that it may taint their own ideas and visions of what they're hoping to create. It's the idea of creating something that no one has ever seen before. Something that is totally original.

For me it's the complete opposite! I love viewing the work of other artist and photographers. However there are those times that you come across similar ideas that you want to shoot, and have shot before. When that happens I normally smile to myself when the photographers attempt falls shot of greatness but, when it looks like Alexandra and IIya's work.....lets just say I can't stop crying long enough to smile! Damn their Awesomeness!
