The Beginning of the Legend

After a 30 minute sitting silence without the ability to move my face, see, and barely breath, it was well worth it to create the first step in a main piece for my thesis. So the first casting of my face is complete, and now through the amazingness of Nick Poyner the next steps of the eyes and hair are now being completed, and by April 6th a bronze Legend will emerge.


getting back in the game.

It Happened To Alexa Foundation Fundraiser

March 19, 2009

Bill O’Reilly from “The O’Reilly Factor” will speak at a luncheon in Palm Beach on Thursday March 19, at the Ritz Carlton, Manalapan, Florida

So anyway, these two girls come in from the suburbs and they get bombed, and their car is towed because they're moronic girls and, you know, they don't have a car.

Supreme Court of the State of New York County of New York


with all proceeds benefiting the “It Happened to Alexa Foundation.”


So they're standing there in the middle of the night with no car.


The purpose of the It Happened to Alexa Foundation is to help support rape survivors 

At all times mentioned here in, Defendant BILL O’REILLY has held himself as a morally right, independent political pundit.

And then they separate because they’re drunk. They separate, which you never do.

through the trauma of the criminal trial,

Throughout her employment at Defendant FOX, Plaintiff ANDREA MACKRIS has reported directly to, and been supervised by Defendant BILL O’REILLY

in the hopes that more survivors will go through with the

Defendant BILL O’REILLY, invited Plaintiff ANDREA MACKRIS out to dinner purportedly to discuss her future at FOX.

All right.

Defendant BILL O’REILLY, lavished Plaintiff ANDREA MACKRIS with unsolicited advice regarding her handling of future relationships with the opposite sex.

Now Moore, Jennifer Moore, 18, on her way to college. She was 5-foot-2, 105 pounds, wearing a miniskirt and a halter top with a bare midriff.

Within defendants FOX NEWS and WESTWOOD ONE a permissive and encouraging environment for gender discrimination and sexual harassment reigns among supervisors, managers, and employees for the companies.

prosecution in order to put these perpetrators behind bars.

Defendant BILL O’REILLY, advised Plaintiff ANDREA MACKRIS to avoid future contact with her ex-fiance, to have manicures and pedicures and “pick up 23 year-olds in bars,” to attend charity events and meet men with credentials

Also appearing with Mr. O’Reilly will be Wendy Murphy, advisory board member of It Happened to Alexa Foundation, Author of “And Justice For Some” and frequent contributor to Fox News and MSNBC.

After these words during the course of the dinner in early May 2002, Defendant BILL O’REILLY’s demeanor abruptly changed.

Now, again, there you go.

With little preamble, Defendant BILL O’REILLY launched into a vile and degrading monologue about sex.

So every predator in the world is gonna pick that up at two in the morning.

During the course of this dinner, Defendant BILL O’REILLY bragged that he had telephone sex with other women.

Established in 2003, the foundation assists rape victims’ families with travel expenses 

Defendant then stated he was going to Italy to meet the Pope, that his pregnant wife was staying home with his daughter, and implied he was looking forward to some extra-marital dalliances with the “hot” Italian women.

She's walking by herself on the West Side Highway, and she gets picked up by a thug.

Defendant O’REILLY then boasted that the woman had her first orgasm via masterbation as he spoke to her on the telephone.

All right.

O’REILLY told Plaintiff ANDREA MACKRIS she knew the woman from FOX.

Now she's out of her mind, drunk.

during the litigation process and is the only organization of its kind in the United States.

And the thug takes her over to New Jersey in the cab and kills her and rapes her and does all these terrible things to her.

O’REILLY further suggested that the women needed to be trained so that they’d be equipped and ready to go when a “real man shows up in your lives,” and offered “lessons.

And the thug is so stupid, he uses her cell phone,

Defendant O’REILLY repeatedly begged Plaintiff to have telephone sex with him that night.

and the cops trace it back to him and they -- and they arrest him and charge him with murder.

He had a prostitute girlfriend with him, and she's charged as an accessory to murder.

He suggested that Plantiff ANDREA MACKRIS purchase a vibrator and name it, and that he had "one shaped like a cock with a little battery in it” that a woman had given him. It became apparent that Defendant was masturbating as he spoke.

But Jennifer Moore is in the ground. She's dead.

Plaintiff ANDREA MACKRIS felt angry, abused and disgusted.

If any woman ever breathed a word I'll make her pay 
so dearly that she'll wish she'd never been born.  I'll 
rake her through the mud, bring up things in her life 
and make her so miserable that she'll be destroyed.  
And besides, she wouldn't be able to afford the lawyers 
I can or endure it financially as long as I can.  And 
nobody would believe her.  It'd be her word against 
mine and who are they going to believe?  Me or some 
unstable woman making outrageous accusations?  They'd 
see her as some psycho, someone unstable.  Besides, 
I'd never make the mistake of picking some unstable 
crazy girls like that.

You are not alone.

i was supposed to write an ecopoetic poem, but i put it off to the last minute and came up with something that has nothing to do with anything.  it's not finished:


we left it was 5:30 and grey and Gray
L.A. was (approximately) 1303.61 miles
away with the stratus and snacks and gas
packed for a trip down
95, 495, 640, 40, 59, 459, 10, 610, 310, 90
South and West
with no stops except for gas
and cigarettes
and coffee
and Foam Henge
and buffets
and stretching
and Knoxville
and bathrooms / restrooms
if absolutely

we’re going to build so many houses
tomorrow! we said not now!
at night with the mechanical
bull and dancing
on bars and test tube shots
from bras and HAND GRENADES
on bourbon street with manrobots / manfemales/ with manshirt-
less and homeless(er) waiting
in the blue bayou under
an hour away.

Hi volunteers we’re so happy you made it, we hope you have a great time this week pretending to work and care about the people in need. Now, we know that you just want to get out of here as fast as possible, so we’re going to provide you with free housing and a very simple but limited workload in hopes that you don’t destroy our progress. And please don’t forget to donate your money so that we can pay professionals to correct your inevitable mistakes. Don’t worry, they’ll come after hours while you’re on our beaches eating at quasi “local” restaurants with prime snapshot opportunities that prove you are certainly not a tourist.
Thank you!

“Bon Jovi brought the crack!”
the locals say
something about destruction
and culture or environment and
not exactly the best habit-
tats for human-ity,
BUT the Jovi donated one million
Wade’s Hawaiian shirt argues—
without him this very development
wouldn’t be possible.
without him there’d be no homes
on Bon Jovi Blvd.

there’d be no trim to repaint
with tiny overused brushes—
don’t touch that circular saw,
or hammer, or wood,
or anything,
just paint and repaint and re-repaint
then shovel
dirt from this pile
to this pile,

Wow these southerners sure are
backwards we comment in
awful southern accents:
They park cars 
in rivers and roofs
kept in basements for
safekeeping, no wonder they
so desperately need our help
and overarching 

this place is beautiful
through windshields
saw Exxons and grass
and reststops and states
and gators
in stew and frogs
legs on plates from
that little known hometown restaurant
stop Dynasty Buffet
(the one with the pretty yellow
billboard above the treeline
and what may have been
a home.)

cameras ready for documenting
destruction with smiles
climbing piles of lives
for the best photo ops
cause six hours with ten breaks
makes good people
and the worst

Too busy to stop, Never too busy to be Patriotic

Just finished up my new print, not the cleanest work but for now its 100% free, these 25 or so will be posted around campus or given to people that are proud to be American, which should be everyone. Half sheet 15x20 screenprint. A layer of gloss transparent goldish text that reads AINT NO SHAME IN OUR GAME in the right light.


The Importance of going to Art School

It gives the opportunity to express my love for great things in different mediums. Todays lesson was PUPPETS, probably the best piece of school work I've ever done. This is for a level 400 art history class.


Pressing Business

So I wont trash talk too hard, but after my design being denied the first time I gave her a simple clean card that's classic but still with a sense of hand, and she had the nerve to trash it in the crit, well anyone who knows me knows her card wasn't much better. This will officially be the last time i design something for someone I havn't offered to. So these are my and her letterpressed business cards for class. Also, yes i go to art school, my artistic angles are top notch.

Now in business for well over 31 years. In June PW printed an article in which local men claimed they could buy crystal meth from dealers inside the bathhouse. Most recently two new Extra Large VIP Rooms have been added. The downstairs area is outfitted like a tropical resort. The LION ROOM and the BEAR ROOM.  Men wear only towels for the most part, though a few add baseball caps or flip-flops. Hookups happen quickly. There are over 60 rooms located on the three upper floors. Some carry tubes of lubricant with them or bottles of amyl nitrate, which they inhale to enhance their orgasms. There is NO MORE Carpeting anywhere except for the stairs. They ejaculate freely on the floor. We have stopped ALL SMOKING and NO GUM CHEWING is allowed either. You are welcome to provide you own Sling and Rope, or you can rent a sling from us! Some men lie on their stomachs, advertising themselves as "bottoms" or receivers for anal sex. A friendly, courteous and informative Staff await your visit. Others sit up in bed as an invitation to those who walk past. Bring a friend or meet one here. Getting into the bathhouse is easy.
No details provided.


B Makin Me look Bad

Self Portrait made of Self Portrait, 4'x5' screenprint, started this last semester, but I have to redo it because the faces didnt come out as crisp as i wanted, and feature like the eyes got blown out on the small faces, so i need to use a better image and better resolution.

Im also working on a postcard for my letterpress class to promote myself and my website. Its suppose to be "Baltimore inspired" so of course i do the greatest celebrity from Druid Hill, Baltimore.
