your it

[Sep. 24th, 2008 03:54:23 PM]

(It's a dirty job- but somebody's gotta do it)
Why don't we all strap bombs to our chests and ride our bikes to the next G-7 picnic? It seems easier with every clock tick. But whose will would that represent? Mine? Yours? The rank-and-file's? Or better yet: the Government's? But I don't want to catalyze or synthesize the second Final Solution. I don't want to be the Steve Smith of the Revolution. Do you see the analogy? We're the Oilers. The World Bank- the Flames! And just 2 minutes remain in the 7th game of the best of 7 series! Yeah, Jesus saves! Gretzky scores! The workers slave. The rich get more. One wrong move and we risk the cup. So play The Man, not the puck. Why don't we plant a mechanic virus and erase the memory of the machines that maintain this capitalist dynasty? And yes, I recognize the irony that the very system I oppose affords me the luxury of biting the hand that feeds. But that's exactly why priviledged fucks like me should feel obliged to whine and kick and scream- until everyone has everything they need.

From my day of tagging Banksy. The girl is skinny and stuffed herself in the bag. The guy is her husband. We shot in front of Banksy's artwork. No collage, no multiple images. I just edit weird...within the rules.

A 5.13??! I'm confused by that score! I found this shot entertaining and it has such cool feel with the blend of art and real people. I think you (along with the guy who used to keep his TV in that building) were ROBBED!

Yes, the graffiti is Banksy's work.

It was a banksy, but now it looks like this.. blotted

Glad to know you didn't bend the rules. I think what confused me about the person on the ground is that she appears out of proportion (too small) compared to the walking man -- which is why I thought she was added to the image digitally. Plus it's hard to tell, but it's almost as if she has a metallic mask covering her face. Anyway, intriguing image!

' simply wonderful. the woman in the bag is probably the most disturbing part of the image; it's hard to tell who or what she is.

Cool shot. Duotone was obviously a good choice here. The motion blur adds a great deal to this pic. Back to bump you up to 8.

Wow! How intriguing! I don't totally understand this, but I think it's very cool!

I keep coming back to look at this as quite frankly, it befuddles me entirely! It looks awesome though. To me, it looks like those thieves are spray painted on the wall and the walking man and the lying down person are real, though I still can't tell completely. I hope you explain what's going on in your comments! It's a fantastic shot.

I must have looked at this shot ten times! What the heck is that Person(?) lying in? Is it some kind of instrument case? It is a person right?!
This spins me out so much I'm giving you a 9.

World's smallest bum, or world's tallest man looking back at him. The guy on the sidewalk isn't as long as the walking guy's leg. Hard to tell what's going on with that. Anyway this has a cool pop-art feel to it. Not voting, just commenting. Good luck.

Not sure how you did this, but I love it.

Cool graphic. It appears to be a real person walking past a wall painting of two guys stealing a tv, with another image of a person in a bag added later, like a collage. Am I close? :-)

I am not voting on this image because I won't be able to do so with an open mind (and seems to be a few rules violations). I do not like the idea of you portraying military personnel (looks like Army) bagging someone in a seabag and looting. I don't know if you are trying to make a statement about something here but if you meant to stike a nerve (which is really the meaning of photography and art) you certainly did here. Military personnel (from all countries) are way too often seen in a bad light and don't need something like this completly unflattering image...enough said.
