66 Clouds: Visualizing Word Frequency in the Bible

I've been working on creating a line of art pieces that are more Christian inspired, because conservative politics aren't the only thing in this life...and they certainly aren't even close the most important thing. I had a post a few months ago about how I'm not doing enough about that and I'm going to start addressing that.

So I did research on what other Christian artists are doing out there and I stumbled upon this (click on the image to see a pdf the full book):

 

This is by a Christian graphic artist named Brad Thomas, his business is Identity33. The concept is really brilliant and interesting. It takes the idea of word clouds you find on websites and blogs and applies it to every book of the Bible.

If you like his stuff you can see more of at at his website or the Identity33 blog. 

He has also been added to the list.

why He must fail (and the capital "H" doesn't mean God)

***Note: While its published today this was written before the grand announcement that Obama should be commended for his peace efforts before having a chance to actually be president, that makes this post all the more relevant***

Before he was president there were breathless reports that Obama was just too hard to make fun of....(unfortunately a subscription to The Hollywood Reporter is required to view the full article,  if you want to purchase it go for it...or maybe petition the money from congress. Surely there's cash for this clunker of an idea).

Anyone who has even had a whiff of this blog knows how flat out wrong the articles premise is without going even one syllable in to it.

Not only is it not impossible to joke about Obama, we're not even a year into his administration  and its actually becoming the punchline.

If its not that he's hard to lampoon liberals are frothing about its the notion that conservatives want him to "fail." Some conservatives shy away from this, others have candidly owned up to the notion.

I don't just want his failure to be political, I want it to be personal. As harsh as that gets its his own fault. People didn't elect a president last year, they voted for a personality, election night coverage on Fox was the first time I had ever watched American Idol.

“Honest poverty is a gem that even a king might be proud to call his own - but I wish to sell out”
- Mark Twain

One of the things artists always worry about is being judged as a "sellout" buy...by (Freudian slip) their peers. The nice thing about being on the conservative end of things is I can hock my wares without caring about whether or not I'm "selling out" (I am).

Really though I'm just taking what I love to do and see if I can spin economic gold out of it.

Ok, not gold but a few bucks may be nice.

.....maybe a few Euros, you know the way things are going...

Whoopi Clarifies "Rape Rape"

I should probably disclose that this is all fictional, even though it looks real Whoopi's head has been slightly Photoshopped and she has never said any of the following...yet.

Its probably hard to read because I had to fit it properly in the article box, so if you click on the image you'll get the full and much more legible size.

It's Not "Rape Rape" Unless You're A "Dumb Dumb"

I'm not entirely sure of the exact moment we completely turned the corner at the intersection of God Fearing Way and Moral Decay, but I have a feeling I missed it...


Because everything that comes out of her mouth sounds either funny, disgusting, or both, I can't be too shocked at what Whoopi "Cushion" Goldberg's view of child rape actually is.

Celebrity Attention 300: Marketing Molestation

When I read Mackenzie Phillips was in the news again I finally said...who?

Then I looked her up on wikipedia, and that said....who?

But that was because I kept misspelling her name, which was realized when google said "OH don't you mean..."

This is for another day, but the line between us and the machines really is blurring...between my computer/phone and google I don't know a bigger gossipmonger in my life. I mean, I've never met this woman, I never will, I can never imagine a situation where our paths will cross, and I know more about her than the people I work with thanks to the rise of the machines...but I digress.

Normally I would link my sources, but I will not dignify what I'm about to say with a link that emanates from this website.

I at first wondered why she wanted to announce that her father raping her in a drug induced haze on both their parts (the night before her wedding) lead to a ten year consensual incest-fest was hard to understand until Mr. Cynical kicked in and I realized she must be trying selling something.

Bad Things Come in Threes vol. 2

My first ever blog post for The Looking Spoon was entitled Bad Things Come in Threes...and this last week as brought us another interesting trifecta that is worth adding to series (this is my second one...its a series now...so there)

That said, either there's something in the water or certain Democratic leaders are starting to become unhinged.

Hey Mr. Wilson! Was Dennis The Menace A Metaphor For Democrats?

I want to extend my congratulations to the Democratic party for another decisive victory over evil using one of the greatest tools in its arsenal....

The RESOLUTION - UTION - UTION - UTION - UTION - UTION - UTION

That's like the ultimate weapon for liberals....a stern warning. They work like magic too! City councils issue them to condemn wars and genocides to make the point that potholes, trash collection, and sewer systems are all issues that take care of themselves.

Ooooh! Remember the U.N. Resolution leveled against North Korea's nukes that ended their ambitions and thus averted nuclear holocaust! Where were you when.................
