Praise - the well knawed pacifier of any good artist
If you don't like my art will you at least burp me?

If per chance you're new here and find yourself starving for more disease - I'm sorry, you'll have to be patient because I'm being impatient. I decided to go ahead and publish "the new look" without having all the archived pages reformatted yet (which is oh-so BORING to do) and since I'm being anal about it I won't make them accessable again until they are all in line. I DEMAND CONFORMITY WITHIN MY CHAOS!

Well, sounds like the flock has already 'forgiven' Ted Haggard. Funny how easy they forgive each other (but God help you if you don't subscribe to their particular brand of nonsense) - especially when the sinner'd still be sinnin' if someone hadn't outed him. I think I understand even more Nietzsche's contempt for "morality" now.

Remember when Pastor Oral Roberts said he saw a "900 foot Jesus" who told him that unless he raised a million dollars by such and such date that the Lord was gonna "call him home"?
Well, I've had a similar experience. While in the ruins of a major city I saw a 9 inch tall demon who told me that unless I drum up more visitors to creative disease that I'm gonna become the butt boy of meth-hitting-gay-prostitue-fucking Christian evangelists. Look, I think I can handle the meth and the gay prostitute part but PLEASE don't subject me to evangelism! Please help me snag more visitors.
I'm working on a medium-sized overhaul of the site even while I feverishly work on new content. Please help give me a reason to live. Please help me boost those monthly stats. Please help me look in the mirror in the morning free of the horrible shame spawned by weak visitor logs. Please save me from evangelism.

It's not easy for me to admit or understand why a guy like me doesn't get any responses from personal ads. Aside from doing my best to "sell myself" thru witty and catchy descriptions I always try to update my photo fairly regularly. Once again my fingers are crossed even though it's time to dust the hope chest off again!
Speaking of photos - it's that time of year when the Chaos Magicians come out of the woodwork and start sending me stuff.
Personal message to "Vast Differ-Ence" : "Bring it on, bitch!"

An Interview with Peter Cushing's Ascot.
CreDi: Hello, Peter Cushing's Ascot. So, what have you been doing since the sad demise of Mr. Cushing in 1994?
Peter Cushing's Ascot (PCA): Honestly, the old chap parted company with me around the time of his "Grand Moff Tarkin" phase. Since then I've split my time between a stuffy old oil tycoon in a smoking jacket and a dandy named Phillipe.
CreDi: You must have some wonderful stories from all those years of working on the sets of Hammer Films.
PCA: Well, I do say, Peter himself was a very gentle man and was passionately devoted to his wife Helen, but there were plenty of nights when I was left lying in the wardrobe room and was taken up by one of the ruffians from the crew or made off with by one of the bit actors.
CreDi: Anyone ever use you to tie up Ingrid Pitt?
PCA: What? Now see here old chap!
CreDi: C'mon, wink-wink-nudge-nudge!
PCA: Well, if truth be told......I was a bit smitten with Ms. Pitt but remained strictly professional in our dealings.
CreDi: Why do you think there are less tits now in horror movies than there were over 30 years ago?
Peter Cushing's Ascot: See here Sir, I don't appreciate the tone that this interview has taken. I bid you good day!
CreDi: Wait, do you have Ingrid Pitt's phone number?

Lester Joy - Snuff Film Critic
Recently I was asked my opinion on the possibility of starting an annual awards show for snuff films - tentatively titled "The Snuffies". I had to confess that I couldn't get past the name, which, I couldn't decide, either sounded like a new brand of tissue, Snuffy Smith fans or some new breed of undefined fetishists - perhaps the nickname of the very sickos who make and/or see snuff films to begin with (mind you, my role as a critic is in a strictly professional capacity).
Besides, during a 'good year' there might be a total of 5 to 10 bona fide "reality films" - hardly the stuff to bother manufacturing trophies for.
Needless to say, the industry is so fundamentally secretive that any ceremony would amount to a circle jerk at best or at worst, a mass murder scene if the typical hot-heads and 'misunderstood auters' who haunt the scene were forced under one roof.
I doubt such an event will ever take place, but I'll keep you posted.
Meanwhile, I was just handed a "brown package" by a messenger. It appears to be a DVD from one of the more colorful (and supposedly female) directors named "Nancy Drool". The title, scribbled with a red sharpie, is called "I Saw You At Saw3 Sawing Logs"......hmmmmm, we'll see. Stay tuned.

Here's some Friday the 13th music for you - Detachment (Coe, Holtek, Ison)
"Music For Entrails - Zhift" And if you're so inclined here's a page with some
general background info on the genesis of the music
"Mood shift shift back to good again. C'mon be a friend"
"It's like a discipline without the discipine of all the discipline"
"And if you wish it will still hurt as before. I can hear you breathing I know you're there."
"He who lives as children live - who does not struggle for his bread and does not believe that his actions possess any ultimate significance - remains childlike."
"karen put me in a chair fuck me and make me a drink I lost direction and I'm past my peak I'm telling you this isn't me no this isn't me Karen believe me you just haven't seen my good side yet"
"He drank panther piss and fucked the girls you're probably married to"
- Nick Cave
"The path to enlightenment is not reached by car and its landmarks will be signs on the soles of the feet."
"I'm going to do things to you that are beyond all known philosophies."
-Duran Duran (Barbarella)

"I hesitate to deposit money in a bank. I am afraid I shall never dare to take it out again. When you go to confession and entrust your sins to the safe-keeping of the priest, do you ever come back for them?"
"Merchant and pirate were for a long period one and the same person. Even today mercantile morality is really nothing but a refinement of piratical morality."
"Like a dark stripe down the center of the night, two's as good as one."
