Stuck at home sick today. So it seems fitting to pass the time with a little sick humor. And there isn't much in the video game world these days more sick and wrong than Saints Row: The Third (NSFW video warning).
He's not perfect, and won't be unless I decide to customize him and come up with a jacket for him, but it's striking just how close you can get using only purist parts. It's like those Brick Daddy parts were made for him.
Best character in the Saints Row series. Ever.
roughly 5.75 x 6.25 inches. This would be Uncle Cletus. I actually thought about naming him after an uncle who reminds me of this guy but decided that would not be charitable. Accurate, though. I love those random take out containers that end up tossed by the dipsticks who toss litter from their cars on to the parkway in front of my house. I use gloves and clean up the containers and they are recycled. Like here. It's probably sick and wrong but so be it. The guy has a caterpillar for a mouth so how can the rest matter anyway?

SEN. TOM HARKIN (D-Iowa): “One of the things we put in the health care bill when we designed it was the protection for consumers to keep the plan they have if they like it; thus, the term ‘grandfathered plans.’ If you have a plan you like — existing policies — you can keep them. … we said, if you like a plan, you get to keep it, and you can grandfather it in.” (Sen.

SEN. JEFF MERKLEY (D-Oreg.): “[E]nsuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it” “The HELP Committee bill sets forward a historic plan that will, for the first time in American history, give every American access to affordable health coverage, reduce costs, and increase choice, while ensuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it.” (Sen.

Shaheen, “Health Care Questions From Across New Hampshire,” Accessed 11/13/13)
SEN. DEBBIE STABENOW (D-Mich.): “As someone who has a large number of large employers in my state, one of the things I appreciate about the chairman’s mark is — is the grandfathering provisions, the fact that the people in my state, 60 percent of whom have insurance, are going to be able to keep it. And Mr. Chairman, I appreciate that. That’s a strong commitment. It’s clear in the bill … I appreciate the strong commitment on your part and the president to make sure that if you have your insurance you can keep it.

Flashback: Senate Democrats Killed 'Keep Your Plan' Enforcement Bill in 2010
Guy Benson | Nov 01, 2013
Uh oh, Mary Landrieu and friends. Your 13th-hour ass-covering maneuver is being exposed as a political sham. How did every Senate Democrat vote back in 2010, when they could have made a difference to protect millions of Americans? CNN fires up the not-so-wayback machine:
Senate Democrats voted unanimously three years ago to support the Obamacare rule that is largely responsible for some of the health insurance cancellation letters that are going out. In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it. “The District of Columbia is an island surrounded by reality. Only in the District of Columbia could you get away with telling the people if you like what you have you can keep it, and then pass regulations six months later that do just the opposite and figure that people are going to ignore it. But common sense is eventually going to prevail in this town and common sense is going to have to prevail on this piece of legislation as well,” Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley said at the time. “The administration's own regulations prove this is not the case. Under the grandfathering regulation, according to the White House's own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans,” the Iowa Republican said. On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year. Senate Democrats like Mary Landrieu, Jeanne Shaheen, Mark Pryor, Kay Hagan and Mark Begich – all of whom voted against stopping the rule from going into effect and have since supported delaying parts of Obamacare.
Merry Christmas, NRSC. Why, it's almost as if Republicans issued explicit and detailed warnings that Obama's promise wouldn't hold true for many Americans, only be willfully ignored by party-line Democrats. Landrieu's feigned surprise is transparent and cynical. Incidentally, Sen. Max Baucus -- who co-authored Obamacare, then alerted America its oncoming "trainwreck" -- is the latest Democrat to sign on to the "delay" caucus. Where were he and his colleagues just a few short weeks ago? Voting in lockstep to oppose a GOP-proposed delay, resulting in a government shutdown. Nice work, guys. Will voters accept their abrupt, "never mind!" reversal? And will Reid allow votes on Manchin and Landrieu's bills? The pressure to do so may mount as more Americans begin to realize that the Obamacare-caused maladies of changed coverage and increased premiums aren't limited to individual market consumers. We've pumped this report several times, but it bears repeating. People with employer-based insurance aren't immune to Obamacare's effects. Avik Roy explains:
Last week, I cited a CBS News report that detailed a disturbing trend in a handful of states: The overwhelming majority of (the relatively few) new Obamacare enrollees have signed on through Medicaid, rather than the exchanges. "If that trend continues, there's concern there won't be enough healthy people buying health insurance for the system to work," wrote correspondent Jan Crawford. The Washington Post's Sarah Kliff revisits this critical issue today and concludes that the trajectory isn't getting much better:
The first month of the new health law’s rollout reveals an unexpected pattern in several states: a crush of people applying for an expansion of Medicaid and a trickle of sign-ups for private insurance. This early imbalance — in some places, nine out of 10 enrollees are in Medicaid — has taken some experts by surprise. The Affordable Care Act, which expanded Medicaid to cover millions of the poorest Americans who couldn’t otherwise afford coverage, envisions a more even split with an expanded, robust private market. “When we first saw the numbers, everyone’s eyes kind of bugged out,” said Matt Salo, who runs the National Association of Medicaid Directors. “Of the people walking through the door, 90 percent are on Medicaid. We’re thinking, what planet is this happening on?” The yawning gap between public and private enrollment is handing Republicans yet another line of criticism against President Obama’s health overhaul — that the law is primarily becoming an expansion of a costly entitlement program.
Part of the reason for this disparity is that people who are newly-eligible for Medicaid don't need to use Obamacare's broken website to sign up; so that is goosing the numbers in one direction. But another big factor is pretty intuitive. Millions of Americans are now being offered "free" coverage. Millions more are being asked to overpay for private insurance. Which group is more motivated to act? As an aside, I find it interesting that Obamacare defenders are spinning the "keep your plan" lie as a good thing because people no longer have to endure their "junk" insurance plans. This updated claim doesn't excuse the original lie, and also happens to be untrue. But if the Left is so opposed to "junk" coverage, why are they such fans of Medicaid? That government program, based on the most exhaustive study ever done, is the veritable definition of junk coverage. Its beneficiaries are limited to an ever-shrinking pool of doctors and hospitals, and do not experience better health outcomes than uninsured people. Taxpayers have poured trillions down the Medicaid drain. Democrats' signature law expands this broken, costly program, while forcing millions of other off of their existing plans, resulting in higher costs for many.

l to r. bryan, who got me on flickr. me. john, who one day started calling me lynnie the pooh. and their sister susan. we all worked together at one point. and we all may work together again. only doing something we really want to do. :)
My mom saw this, and said I was sick and wrong... but she laughed, which is all that matters :3
But really, yeah, the Beast was a tad abusive to Belle.
One of those ads I just know I'm gonna end up redoing, but this is how I've spent my day heh. Available Here!
i went to thrift town last night a found a plastic bag filled with hundreds of old photographs dating from 1940 through the 1950's. i love old photos so i immediately snatched these up, but when i got home and started looking through them all i realized they were all of one family. photos of the children growing up, photos of the family dog, the husband fishing, the husband in military uniform, family vacations, the wife holding a newborn baby, etc. by the time i finished looking at every photo and reading the handwritten descriptions on the back, i felt very sick and wrong, like i was invading this family's privacy.
blah, what should i do with the pictures? i still like them, i just feel uncomfortable knowing i have the contents of an entire photo album from a family i don't even know.
i still can't believe they started before labor day.
it's sick and wrong.
View from Skyline Hospital... I moved this one forward because of the conversation going on in comments...
I had to go in recently to get a test done, and just had to grab a photo before going inside the hospital...
standing on the Skyline Hospital hill in White Salmon, Washington looking westward down the Columbia Gorge, across the Hood River Bridge and the city of Hood River, as well as the mouth of the river called Hood River. Gee, that could get comfusing... or maybe I am just comfused from the silly sedative. Oh don;t worry, just a screening, all is well... things were fine.
FInally got insurance, but if I have to work too many hours because everyone is sick, I could go over my income bracket and get kicked back off Washington Basic Health. Crazy, huh? Can't better myself or I cannot afford to live! now there is something seriously wrong in a world that allows such things.
I am babbling... but the other thing I found to be seriously wrong is how our county, if it receives 3 complaints about stuff on your property from anyone within 5 miles of your property, has the right to go in and clean up by taking EVERYTHING away, even stacks of firewood that are not stacked perfectly, and then fine you $20,000 that you have 3 years to pay off or they will foreclose and take your property away. This happened to 2 people I know of, old timers on old family property...
now THAT is sick and wrong!
I had the beef fajitas with refried beans. It was disappointing. The "fajitas" comprised sirloin stewed in some kind of spicy tomato sauce. And the beans were KIDNEY beans. Sick and wrong. Unusually poor effort from Banners.

This is for the "You are the..." swap in the BBC. Yup! You guessed it! Another sick and wrong swap... (My favorite kinds!) I printed out a picture of ratatouille that I found on the web, onto fabric sheets, and fussy cut it to add my own rat... He came out pretty good and gruesome! I bet it's delicious!!! With a little extra "flavoring"... Bwahahahahahah... hahahahaha...

It is incredibly essential that a person develops, changes, + evolves mentally just as much as he does physically. It is probably twice as important for an artist as it clearly shows in his work. Artistic self expression is like a man-eating disease and, if you let it, you'll find yourself believing you've hit the mythical "writer's block".
You can look at a drawing from the early years and a sketch from the current brain weather and almost not recognize (if at all) the maker.
Who I was 5 years ago is not the person I am today (2011). People in high school year books always advise to "never change" but they couldn't be more wrong. Are they seriously asking you to stay in the same naive rutty way of thinking? Mental growth is the reason why you cannot trust anyone 100%. I'd say go for 99% with those closest to you. To evolve is to learn and expand the horizons of your mind. Sometimes this requires going back to our childlike ways of believing anything is possible.
To stay put in your seatbelt is to deny your humanity.
To be stuck in the same corner is just sick and wrong.

The world has gone horribly wrong. My entire system of working out monetary value has also broken down completely.
We will hopefully return you to your regularly scheduled creativity soon... in the meantime please enjoy this cheap joke.
I'm feeling rather jetlagged. So no creative photo tonight. This is a T-shirt I bought on my fabulous thrift store outing in Laurel with Mel. I just couldn't resist. I know. I'm sick. and wrong.
hooray! this made it into explore. it has since dropped again, but I'm happy as it is only my sixth ever photo to make it.
We are fucking sick and wrong. We had extra dough and this is what came of it. Looks a bit like a relic of an ancient civilisation.
It's sick and wrong, but there it is. This bike lane symbol is wearing headphones, and for all we know, rocking out. Seen on N. Russell Street. And look at how reflective that is!
Iz has a doll drawer that she only opens when she is gifted another doll and needs a place to put it. Leelo broke the drawer by using it as a step stool, so I had to empty it. Here are all its innards. If they disappeared Iz would never realize it.
This display is sick and wrong to me on so many levels. Not even getting into body image mental contortions or the kind of labor involved in making such complicated micro-garments on a doll that sells for $5.
This is a good example of why I ask people not to bring obligatory presents to our birthday parties. We prefer company to gifts, though sincere and thoughtful generosity is always appreciated.
Anyone who wants a Barbie, let me know.
This was my first ever hunt gift, well a version of it was, back in Feb last year for the Vain Inc valentines hunt. I've never got around to making an ad for it. As the heart sculpt I used is going to be the hunt item for the Tainted Hunt, I thought I had better pull it off of display and replace it with an ad instead...just to avoid confusion hehe.
Now if only SL would let me upload it...

Photograph superimposed on an edited ink and bleach background
This is a photograph superimposed on an edited ink and bleach background. The photograph depicts a headless stuffed tiger which is bleeding due to having being stabbed and beheaded by a knife. I used tomato sauce to create the oozing blood effect.
This artwork represents the loss of innocence and lives in our society, but this is specifically being referenced to children in South Africa. So many children are dying such inhumane and unnecessary deaths. I thought about the child who recently died by being tied to the end of a car and was dragged across a road by hijackers. I thought about how 8 year olds are committing suicide at school. I thought about how 9 year olds are playing the ‘Rape Game’ by chasing after girls are pinning them down and then imitating the act of rape. The fact that 9 year olds know how to act rape out is sickening. The children of South Africa are losing their innocence and lives.
The toy tiger is so symbolic. It is symbolic because it is a children’s’ toy. It is something that is supposed to give a child joy . There is something sick and wrong about having a beheaded toy oozing out blood with a knife to its stomach. The splattered red ink looks like blood. The red ink on the white background represents all the innocent lives that have been cruelly taken away.
Barbie was horrified to see Ken for the first time after his six month trip to Switzerland. "How could you do this to me!" she cried. "But Barbie" Ken started to explain, but Barbie cut him off. "No!" she yelled, "This is sick and wrong, and I will not have any part of this!" Ken was aghast at Barbie's extreme response to his new lifestyle. Deep down he always thought she knew he wasn't happy being Ken. Before he could say anything to her, she continued. "You are disgusting, pairing silver boots with that sassy pink dress? Haven't I taught you anything?".
Video? Again? Sick and wrong I know, oh wait, is it still controversial?
The song is by Deaf To Van Gogh's Ear, members of which are playing a short set at Stargazy Pie tonight at Fuel in Withington. You should come.
The members are my brother Evan Wilson (www.myspace.com/hungryhahaha) who will be accompanied by Adam Stafford.
Not to be missed of course.

When I saw them sitting side by side, I had to capture it -- right or wrong.
We were also at a potluck recently. I made some sick and wrong strawberry shortcakes. (i have never made them before!) There was whipping cream in the "cake" batter, as well as butter, and then of course the whipped cream in the actual assembly of of it all. uuuuuuuh. sooooo good.
Every fiber of my being tells me it's a bad idea to post this, but I felt it was civic duty. This was way back on the 4th of July after we set off a stockpile of fireworks.
The hose was meant to douse the embers, but we obviously decided to get juvenile with it.
I hope the person who decided to make the Mickey Mouse smoothie maker gets canned. Rather phallic, no?
so for the twisted krissmuss promotion thingy, we were encouraged to create gift boxes for people to put items inside to give to their friends...I thought I'd make mine as twisted as possible...then one of my regular customers, Fledyris, said her friend has started wearing one of my pedobear boxes on her head and before you know it I had made a version with eye holes...
There is nothing about this stuff that doesn't seem either scary, disgusting, or both.

in my goddam 40$ fucking Sick and Wrong Podcast t-shirt, you bastards! I love this design more than the plain design, this one has cynical commentary on pop culture!

so i don't follow football, but sources tell me that michael vick, animal abuser, is back playing with the nfl.
now, true, i hate american football. but that's besides the point. the point is, animal abuse is wrong in whatever venue. if my favorite singer, or author, or actor engaged in dog fighting or any other anti-animal act, i would call for a boycott of their work.
i think the nfl and all the football fans fawning over him are to blame for this, not just vick. you don't prop up inhumane acts and reward their perpetrators with millions, just because you happen to love some sport.
the idolization of sports is an epidemic that needs swift eradication.
sports and religion are the twin opiates of the masses.
now i happen to like some sports myself, and don't begrudge others their love of them. but when an ANIMAL ABUSER is held up as some sort of fucking ICON and given egregious amounts of money, there is something very very sick and WRONG with society.
american society is ailing. we are a nation of perverse money-grubbing war-mongering sickos.

Our last day there, the year's first rosebud appeared on the bush outside our window. I hadn't wanted to photograph it again, hadn't even wanted to look at the bush this year. In fact, it nearly blew over in April, and it hurt me to watch it, so I stopped. And I stopped the feeling I had for it, because the pain of leaving it was becoming blinding. And just this day, when strangers were throwing our life into boxes and the entire world seemed sad and sick and wrong, this beauty appeared anew. And I couldn't keep saying no. So I said goodbye.
This is my entry in the Girl Gab Photo Challenge. Thanks for the inspiration, ladies, and Madonna.

Gosh, the colors are so sick and wrong here it's unbelievable....anyway I should be done with the whole top by class on Thursday.

Yup.
we sat in mcdonalds for two and a half hours. we just couldn't be bothered to leave. and whilst the others had a least two meals each (ross spent about a tenner) i had nothing because mcdonalds is sick and wrong and if you eat it that makes you a bad person and you don't get to be as thin and beautiful as me eating that disgusting stuff. so there.
