I love cardinals. I used to watch them endlessly. Their beauty is gaudy in a world that rewards drab colors that would let them blend in to hide from predators. They are like a bloodred beacon against a snowy background – it is the most amazing contrast in winter. It is cool to think that they were designed to be this beautiful by female cardinals over thousands of years. They are tufted finches that eat seeds. Their beak is a neon orange wedge designed for tough seeds.
Arab man with a cheek full of Khat. It is a green leafy plant that people in Africa and the Middle East chew to get a feeling of euphoria and excitement. It is a drug that the WHO does not classify as seriously problematic. It is chewed like tobacco and coca leaves. Chewers stuff so much in their cheek that they look like hamsters. And its not unlike how rednecks look when they are chewing Tobacco.
I love Spongebob. He is so chipper and high on life. He makes me want to get a job flipping burgers. There must be a zen to menial jobs that you can take pleasure in doing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over until you get it right. Lately Spongebob has been down and life has been gnawing at him. So he started taking Lexapro and sometimes he feels happy but others he feels depersonalized. He feels like he is observing himself from somewhere outside of his body. He is losing his teeth and has has dried out and sometimes small parts of his body fall off.
There is a cool bike shop in Statesboro called The Bike Shop. I bought an aluminum Trek mountain bike there and it is great. This is a caricature of the guy who owns it. He also looks a bit like my Uncle. Get rekt Dick. Cyclist cartoon.
This is an Eastern Bluebird illustration. They used to come to bird houses in my grandma’s backyard. You could sit and watch them work constantly to build a nest and then feed their young. They would work as a team – tirelessly. I once found a dead male under a feeder in the coldest part of Winter. Turns out that they can actually freeze to death. It must be brutal to survive in the wild as a tiny bird.
This is a caricature of US president Donald Trump from the Side. It amuses me how angry he makes the media with his trolling. They deserve a little trolling sometimes to be honest. I don’t trust giant corporations to tell me the truth – why would they? Mega Corps don’t pay billions for news / media conglomerates as a humanitarian gesture to help us better know what is happening in the world. It is almost certainly the opposite. Trump has the persona of a disgruntled construction worker. It seems haphazard but it is obviously carefully crafted to appeal to the angry voters he is trying to win over. He is like Adam Carolla with a little more money and way better hair. His hair is amazing. It is the best feature of any president. It is a gift for artists and caricaturists.
I love birds so much. It is cool how they were sculpted by evolution to ride the wind like some sort of scifi machine. It also made them beautiful – with graceful shapes that reflect their purpose. Male songbirds have the most bright and beautiful coloration – chosen by female birds – for no other purpose than beauty. It is crushing that people have built giant skyscrapers that that kill millions of songbirds a year – as they fly into them blindly. I hope we can figure out a way to save them.
I love Rick and Morty. It is sometimes amazing and other times meh but the best episodes are incredible. I wish I had a genius alcoholic time jumping Grandpa with a 200 IQ. ;_; It is cool to see what smart and creative people come up with when they are getting paid to have fun. This is Rick vomiting up the fabric of the cosmos after eating too much Szechuan Dipping Sauce. God I love chicken mcnuggers.
This is a green monster automaton with a fish pilot brain. The fish is called Eddie and the monster is called Chuck. Eddie uses Chuck as his big stupid body on land. He lives a normal life as a dishwasher. He has few friends. Most people think that he is his happy oafish exterior. They dont look close enough to see the depressed little ocean critter doing the driving.
This is a blue barrel eye fish. The are incredibly cool real fish that have a transparent head and false eyes on the outside and real barrel shaped eyes inside their head. They actually look through their forehead and resemble some sort of alien robot submarine.
