They will be glued as one painting on poster board but the scanner I have access to is 17 inches wide, I need 18 or my horns or feet get cut off. Alternatively I can get my hands on 6x6x6 shipping boxes, create a second three-me and make a two-me die

The collateral damage of capital
"Tired of self-abuse, anesthetized by drugs and alcohol, disillusioned white males have taken permanent residence in a conflicting configuration between life as they wanted it and life as it has been. They have been lost in their desperate search for a savior who will restore their (perception of) lost dignity and self-respect, and reclaim, on their behalf, what they always considered rightfully theirs, the privilege of luck."

This shitty blog's newest Theme Song and this shitty blogger's 2022 Theme Song, yes, posted *again*


W.S. Merwin

With what stillness at last
you appear in the valley
your first sunlight reaching down
to touch the tips of a few
high leaves that do not stir
as though they had not noticed
and did not know you at all
then the voice of a dove calls
from far away in itself
to the hush of the morning

so this is the sound of you
here and now whether or not
anyone hears it this is
where we have come with our age
our knowledge such as it is
and our hopes such as they are
invisible before us
untouched and still possible
