That white bird is being oppressed.

No, it's the dove of peace being pinned down by a jealous God in the form of Man.

Sucks changing meds, doesn't it? Fucks up everything for like a week.

None of the words in this post have any meaning.

#9: Wrong.

It's funny, I was thinking about Badiou's "disaster of the unlimited", and I think it might plug even better into certain overindulgences on the internets - like this here blog! hmmm...

OK, pretty off topic; the bird pic reminds me:

I was expecting to find some SLOGging on Guillermo Habacuc Vargas today, judging by the internet fury surrounding him.

Anyone know if it's true? Charles would be the man to report it.

You are one sublime motherfucker.

True, as far as I'm concerned. But I prefer to read that tone of reverence ironically.

Ugh. Makes me want to pour a drink and read Derrida.

#13: Guillermo Habacuc Vargas is a Costa Rican artist who they that country chose to represent them in a big upcoming South American exhibit.

Apparently, he recently had an exhibition in which he displayed a live, starving dog, tied in the gallery, as his installation. He prevented anyone from feeding it, and sadly no one intervened; needless to say, the dog died... I assume horribly.

I thought that was a photo of Larry Craig.

Charles Mudede may have nothing more to say than what is in that picture, but I assure you philosophy does.

Obfuscation does not prove that there is meaning to obfuscate. You can encrypt white noise, but it's still white noise.

Dougsf, that's horrible.

You know that thing people do with their hand where they make a fist and move it back and forth to simulate jerking off? How do you do that on-line? Because this post demands that simulated masturbation.

#18 Fnarf, I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, I only know of all this through and online petition/chain mail I received, so I'm naturally skeptical these events are real. ("The [insert evil company] animal testing lab is closing, send this to everyone you know, we must adopt these beagles!" bullshit is the last one I got.)

The artist I do know actually exist, and I do know he makes pretentious, douchee art. I wish someone credible would pic the story up so I can figure out whether or not this guy need to be burned at the stake. If the story is true, he really is the worst kind of human.

@10 on top of being dumb, i'm wrong, too? damn. or am i wrong about being dumb? you'll have to go a little slower for me.
