Obama on Fire
Fresh from his solid trouncing of Democratic opponents in the Iowa caucuses, Barack Obama seems to be a blazing phenomenon of desire for change within at least significant parts of the electorate. At the suggestion and behest of Minstrel Boy of Harp and Sword
, a graphic is herewith offered to the auld-timey ghouls whose brethren of previous generations silenced the voice of change.
Opinions, vows, or other declarations made in the graphic above do not in any way reflect an endorsement by Dark Wraith Publishing or its proprietor of a candidate or ways of showing support. In other words, for God's sake, don't blame me for this graphic: it was Minstrel Boy's idea; I just happen to be good at graphical artwork. For my own part, I am personally opposed to incendiary imagery and words (notwithstanding previous artwork like this
, and this
, among others).
The graphic depicted above is currently available on black T-shirts at The Dark Wraith Forums e-Store
sponsored by CafePress. They are obscenely over-priced there, and the rendering onto fabric of the graphic may not reflect the high quality for which Dark Wraith Publishing is known; however, unless and until a production run can be afforded through a quality silkscreening service, the T-shirts at CafePress will have to do.
The Dark Wraith should probably lie low for the rest of the day now that this graphic has been posted.
Good afternoon Dark Wraith,
That is a fine graphic sir! I am absconding with it and trying to figure out a post to go with it now..bless you for making it..
Hopefully the CIA, FBI and DOJ are busy with real terrorists, otherwise we might be sending you packages at Gitmo m'dear man ;p
Not to sound all tinfoil, but if a criminal cabal (cough)Cheneyburton(/cough) wanted to, you know, postphone an election so it couldn't be prosecuted, the ideal way to do it would be to do what their boy Musharaff just did. To somebody.
If they played their cards right, they could declare martial law, cause an even greater amount of civil unrest, and install a certain VP until things "settled down". Which of course, endless war on terror being endless, it might never do.
If they played their cards right.
Not that I would suggest conspiracy theories here or anything.
The Dark Wraith was wondering if he had the only tin foil hat with an incessant hum in it, these days.
Thank you for the fix, DW.
Good evening again, Dark Wraith.
It seems that not all of us possess buzzing tinfoil. I just wanted to re-establish that our receivers were working on the same wavelengths. The buzzing is annoying, especially since many seem to regard it as noise.
It's hard to imagine people don't see the pattern in the signal.
Good post, Phydeaux.
Although given the lack of appeal of the current Republican front runner among the monied, and the distaste in the Village for him, perhaps there might be a more tactical advantage for the Company for a hit on the right.
and just what the HECK is it with the incessent hum?
Any sign of black Suburbans circling the Wraith abode?
The hum is from too many years of very loud music. Least that is what my high-priced doctor told me.
He also told me to ditch the tinfoil hat, I might be picking up signals from my neighbor's cell phone. ;p
Thank you Phydeaux for that link..I have combined Dark Wraith's imagery and your profound thoughts into my blog post, with proper attribution of course.
good morning dark wraith and friends:
screw the tin foil hats. your doctor is right dusty, they would tend to pick up more signals than they block. think about the enhanced rabbit ears on an old tv.
during the last election arizona had just enacted a photo id at the polls law. i had visions of myself in my buckskins, toting my flintlock, and going to the polls. i wanted to just glare at them when they asked me for id. but, i figured they wouldn't understand my point, and i'd probably get tazed for my efforts.
still, with the separation that exists between governmental and civilian armaments, it's greater now than the days of peasants with pitchforks and armored, mounted knights, any armed resistance would be relegated to merely symbolic anyway.
i'm thinking, flintlocks, concord bridge. being killed like that is a far better death than running out of money part way through the course of treatment for a chonic condition, or being in a car wreck while yakking on the cell phone. at least to my jaundiced thinking anyway.
this minstrel longs for simpler times. but is skeptical enough to ponder if they ever really existed at all. the artist's palatte is heavily shaded with grey in my world.
O Dark Wraith, seeing as how you may have an extended vacation in the Caribbean, and needing some measure of solace, the answer to a question a few weeks ago is "The Legend of Boggy Creek". A terrifically bad film from all dimensions, but one I recommend simply because it is so bad.
Sometimes being awful is pretty good.
Amazngly the Woof is sawing logs under his "throw" again tonight. I might attempt to steal it later and see if I can derive similar benefits.
Goddamn it, Minstrel Boy; That's what the heck I'm talkin' 'bout!! I fear there may indeed be some type of 'shock and awe' in the works, should there be any backlash when the Dems pander to...whatever spineless deity enables them to look themselves in the mirror after passing the Telecom Immunity crapola, and letting Bush install so many radically right-leaning, Federalist flunkies that more Voter ID laws are in the works as we type, rather than less.
A la Sidebar: That's how we do things around this reputable diner.
Where...you mean over there, in that really dark corner, where the grease trap blew up all by itself? That place scares me; 'member when that priest tried to do the 'Coulter exorcism', and after only 2 minutes he threw himself, head-first into the fryer basket? (I hate to admit this, but he did smell good, kinda like turkey!)
Normally, trog, a monk might, under unusual circumstances, go from friar to priest.
It is, indeed, a sign of dangers ahead when the priest becomes a friar in the cooking oil.
"He'll be here all year, folks! Try the fried pedophilets, so good, they'll make your head spin!"
I can't believe I missed that friar joke...good one, DW!
Back to ye old Dark Wraith's HTML lessons, started them last night and apparently any word over four letters is too much for my addled cerveaux... Cest la Vie
Or, as we say in the goat locker "fuck it"
Back again, I guess that I should learn to refresh the page after doing an edit and delete....
As I tried to say, Thanks to both Dark Wraith and Minstrel for the outstanding Graphic that I shamelessly stole, and put on my blog. (not that I have more than 2 readers a year and for sure not because I blog prolifically...
Good Afternoon, Dark One,
Fantastic imagery, and I'd post it, but since Syria called me I'm a little allergic to references to violence.... Now that the powers that be have made thought into actionable "crime" and the internet where the "crime" happens. [The Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act]
Isn't it just GREAT how we are now as authoritarian as the likes of China, Russia, and North Korea?
Good afternoon, SB Gypsy. I'd been wondering where you were.
With respect to our present situation, it seems to me that the folks in China, Russia, and North Korea are probably more used to authoritarianism than we are. I suspect, too, that they're not nearly as naïve about it, either.
It would probably take a lot more than an idiot like Mr. Bush and all the mini-authoritarians saying, "Bogey Man straight ahead!" for them to jump.
My idea of protesting? Giving the finger to the cameras that are at every intersection within twenty square miles of where I live. Boy, that'll teach those authoritarians a lesson.
The Dark Wraith knows how to get totally rowdy.
SB Gypsy, as he's being marched into the Dick and Lynn Cheney Labor and Indoctrination Camp of Hope, to Trog69, already a "patient" there: "Man, you look like crap. I heard they finally got DW...is he here yet?"
"Yeah, he's in the Retraining Brigade Commander's bathroom. Th-they drilled holes in the terlet, so whenever someone goes, DW's hands are stretched out to 'catch' it all! You can tell when they do it, too, 'cause you hear DW shout out stuff like, "You're gonna have to get closer to hit the rim, PeeWee!!", and laughin' to beat the band. I can't stop cryin', 'cause I heard they're gonna have a kegger in the office tonight, and all you can eat pickled eggs for the officers. He's prolly gonna want me to help clean him up, again."
