Silly - Dirty Face

(no subject)

I noticed some lines drawn on the inside of a closet door in my new apartment. The building dates from the 1950s. The lines were the height measurements of a prior resident, a boy named Brandon. He was around 4 feet and 8 inches in 1981 and around 5 feet and 1 inch in 1983, which is the last mark with a date. The last undated mark shows him getting close to 6 feet. Somewhere out there is a tall man, just a little younger than I, who became a man in this place, my new home. Where did your life take you, dear Brandon?

Bwahahahahahaha! I love failblog. This one is just classic, so classic I wonder about a Photoshop job. It's funny anyhow, especially with the Dead End sign. These are the kinds of "slice of life" photos I love catching myself.

Wow. My friend Karissa posted this image. Provocative, evocative, captivating, disturbing. Is this the face of an innocent who cannot comprehend how catastrophic this is to some family's life? Or is this the face of the child who set the fire?

Crazy Portland Art

Click on the image to enlarge it.

Portland is an odd town full of odd artistry and funky street art. This morning I missed my bus and came in by Max, and I'd likely have missed this had I not. It's the word, "Lies" that caught my attention.

At first glance it looks like someone pounded a parking meter to death, but closer examination shows that it is actually a destroyed small TV that has been draped over the parking meter. Urban art? A protest maybe? Perhaphs it's a statement about how TV is not life but is what drains life from us. Maybe it's protesting our mayor lying about a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old? Maybe it's protesting the local media who immediately called for his resignation, but who never called for Bill Clinton's, even though Clinton was a repeat offender and was married. It could be a combination of these or a general statement about the media. Or maybe it's just street art designed to make us think.

I don't know, but it is super cool, in a small way.
