Meet Francesca Woodman

Francesca Woodman
 (1958-1981) was an American photographer best known for her black and white pictures featuring herself and female models. Many of her photographs show young nude women, blurred by camera movement and long exposure times, merging with their surroundings, or with their faces obscured. Her work continues to be the subject of much attention, years after she committed suicide at the age of 22.


The beauty and intelligence in her photographs are a testament to the tragedy of her loss and the depth of her sorrow. I am forever in awe of her.

Chicken Shit


So I was walking along Front Street today when I noticed a crowd of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) petitioning about boycotting KFC. I couldn't help but laugh when I saw the sign, "Broken Wings and Legs".
This seems to be a touchy subject in the news right now... so why not feel it up?

First of all, Pamela Anderson of all people is representing this case for PETA. Last time I checked big boobs loves to sport the leather.

Second, this issue is a problem in the United States right now. What the hell are you petitioning in Canada for? All the chickens used in the Canadian chains of KFC come from the same manufacturers that we buy from in the grocery stores. This is clearly another American fuck-up. I understand you're trying to spread the message, but what the hell kind of power do we have over our what our neighbours next door are frying up? Last time I checked, they lived in their own world.

And my last point (although its my opinion) is still a fact of life. They're fucking chickens. They are not endangered, nor do they serve any other purpose in the world than to breed more chickens and feed us. If you love them so much, take one home for a day... I'm sure you'll be indulging on chicken wings when you realize how dumb they really are, along with your idea to protect them.

Don't say I never warned you...
