My sense of humor is fully intact, it's just that I prefer to run around waving a pitchfork and ranting hysterically about the impending apocalypse.

My paranoid side is beginning to wonder...Obama visits Mexico...Felipe Solis dies a few days after shaking hands with Obama...swine flu outbreak begins...major earthquake hits Mexico today...and oh ya, while comet holmes was bursting a million times it's size who was sweeping the nation filling stadiums with frenzied record crowds...Obama. Now I know most of you will think this utter nonsense, and it quite likely is...but, it still kind of makes me wonder?

I'll check back in a week and see if everyone's caught up on their sleep AND GOT SOME SEMBLENCE OF A SENSE OF HUMOR BACK.







I'm finding this thread quite amusing actually. . .

I have an absurd-reaction-to-an-Obama-painting story -- and I'm actually (kind of) involved!

I'm the art rep for my favourite musician/singer who is also a painter. He's doing a solo exhibition (paintings with spoken word pieces over music for each painting -- it covers all his arty stuff...music, poetry, painting) at a gallery which is located in the lobby of an office building. Now this gallery isn't a commercial gallery (yes, they do sell the art, but it isn't primarily a shop), but part of an initiative by the city's technology council to promote culture in the region.

One of the paintings in this exhibition is a portrait of Obama, and this portrait, or rather the title of this portrait -- "Finally, a Good Guy" -- caused some people who work in the building to pitch a hissy fit. Several people called it "potentially offensive" to people who do not feel Obama is "finally, a good guy" and petitioned to have it removed or at least to have a big fat disclaimer plastered on it that it "does not reflect the views and opinions of all the tenants of the building."

It's a painting in a exhibition by a particular artist -- they are his views and thoughts. I don't know where these folks ever got the idea any of these paintings were supposed to reflect any other than the artist's opinion, but that's apparently what they feel (looks like they need a bit more work on that understanding culture thing ). So there was a little tempest in a teapot, but the painting is staying. With no disclaimer either.

The painting is doing it's job -- it's showing the opinion of it's creator and getting a reaction (both positive and negative) from it's viewers. It will be interesting to see if any of the offended parties show up at the opening this Friday to express their displeasure to the artist.

Obama has the power to cause earthquakes?

That's cool.

Apparently, and what's even cooler, he has the power to deliver swine flu to the masses.
