I glanced a commotion on the far side of a tree across the street while looking out my kitchen window today. At first I thought it might be the neighbor cat "Sparky" going after something, but then I saw wings and this behemouth came into view with a squirrel in it's mouth. By the time I got my camera and went outside it had taken flight. The sun was in my eyes and I just barely got it at the top of the frame.

I'm pleased to report that "Negative Beauty" sculpture is going to be in upcoming "Venus of Willendorf" show at University of Michigan.
Apparently since it's a feminism themed show I was the only male who submitted (*giggle* I said "submitted"). I guess in any case it sure feels good to be the token white male for a change. It's about time - damn women and minorities been keeping me down long enough.
I'm banking on the fact that acceptance into the show will help counter-balance some of these vaguely misogynistic cartoons.....
Okay, now where were we.......for the one or two of you keeping score here's a very partial list of -

Definitely the best cover I've heard so far this year -

I went to the grocery today. It was really busy. Everyone was stocking up on snacks for George Bush's
State of the Union address tonight.
Hello. CreDi was down for 48 hours or so. I hope you've all come back. I hope you pass the word around about this site as we continue to pass cyber gas that alights and burns like a beacon for cold, hungry, tired travellers on the information super highway. There's zero advertising here. We exist almost solely on ego. Please make a donation to our ego by pointing people this way.

One important thing that should be accepted as early in life as possible is that there is no such thing as bad dancing. Toddlers know this but by the teens it's thrown into doubt and by adulthood it often degrades into a crisis of outright malperspective. In short, there are no bad dancers only bad conversationalists.
Maybe this is funny. Maybe it's not. But at 5:30 this morning I woke up with it in my head and I made myself repeat it 5 times so I'd remember it after I fell back asleep. So damnit, here it is.
The city dump is the opposite of the shopping mall. Death is the only sure-cure for consumerism. Silkworms make the burial shroud then later feed on it's occupant.
I saw a guy reading in the mall the other day. One should never read in the mall just like one should never cry during sex.
Most American girls are embarrassed to show up at school wearing a dress made by their mom - unless her mom's name is "Mai Lin" and works in a sweatshop in China.
In the middle of the aisles of most American malls there are now kiosks that sell everything from cellphones to bling to back massagers. They are the "carts and wagons"of modern day gypsies - minus the charm and music playing.

We interrupt our programming to deliver a message from Mr. Sanders -
"Now, I don't know what kind of outfit you all are running here but there's been reports of some 'fumes'. And the other day, coming in in the morning, well, I thought I smelled 'whacky tobaccy'. What you all do on your own time is your business but I've been paid to keep things in order around here so KEEP IT OUTSIDE!
And whoever scratched "ass-master" into my desk with a knife need only know that it's simply a matter of time.....just a matter of time. Yes Sir. Yes Siree."
Let's check in with the CreDi news ticker:
