Book Of Bad Ideas 6/24/05

Around this time I read the book “Odd Girl Out” by Rachel Simmons and it inspired a whole slew of comix. As well as making me want to time travel and beat up half my seventh grade class. The comix were much rougher than what I put in my minis, but then again, the sketchbook was pretty miniscule. Anyway, they’ve been sitting there since 2005. Time I did something with them. You can see more here.

By the way, regarding the douchebag from SVA who attacked the Muslim cabbie, since when is it the arty kids who run around committing hate crimes? Is there a dearth of jock schools in this city? Like someone on WBAI just said “This is New York, not ARIZONA!” Which was incredibly weird because I was thinking that exact same sentence in my mind. Having partially grown up there and all.

  1. lets first get our facts straight…the mujahideen are and were fighting and working with the u.s.a…..
    for the record i am disturbed that in this country, the ‘melting pot’ if you will has become a place where BIGOTS run amok.
    the cabbie, and i wish i could put his name here…he is a person…just like you or i, or? he picked up the guy and did nothing more than honestly answer his questions……the students time over-seas should have opened his eyes to the evil that was perpetrated in ‘our name’…….
    its time to call this what it is: racism and classism….it sounds like you are saying it is o.k. to slash someone because they are of a path you do not understand……that is a scary time for HUMANITY!….what if he had been dis-abled, gay, christian, poor, homeless, hungry, or of any background other than yours.
    as an artist, and one who is older…i remember a time when the artists took their work to the streets for the good of all……what has happened….sounds like a real gap has happened between those who are ‘artists’ by calling or choice….and those who can AFFORD or have the INFLUENCE to go only with the hope of making it a business venture.
    last i really support the community center on the way. i hope it has a room named for the fine man who was victimized for being honest about his beliefs and working hard for his pay.

    Maybe all that time spent with American soldiers fighting the mujahideen overseas led to a manifestation of anti-jihad disorder.

    Can’t be any worse than the theory that Nidal Hasan suffered from pre-traumatic stress disorder.
