“Living in a house inside a house.
Feels like it’s a maze and I’m the mouse.
Whenever I try to run, I’m pulled back in.
Beaten and freed of pain and sin.
I scream I want out but no one heard.
Living like a rat when I want to be a bird.
Flying through the sky with no worries whatsoever.
Giving myself false hope, but the truth is:
I’m here FOREVER.”
Skizz – “Catch22” from Sociedad Gastada
Weekend Surfing Picks…
- Sociedad Gastada – Skizz had his site down for the longest time. Sociedad Gastada brings it back with a roaring vengeance. A powerful blend of sounds and images, he’s just getting better and better at what he does. The splash page has Elmo surrounded by at least a dozen hotspots revealing hidden subliminal messages. It’s possible the entire work is open to interpretation, but it stuck me that the Elmo doll took on several forms; From a corporate icon, to a hideous monster in “Kiddie Corruption“, to even a statement that we’re all puppets… trapped in this “Wasted Society“. Not since his I Am A Designer, did a piece reach out and literally speak to me somewhere in my soul. It just kicked my ass!Before you click that link, I suggest you have your resolution settings set to 1024 x 768, it’s the only way you can take it all in (and believe me, I don’t change my settings for anyone!).
- The Apple of My Eye- I’ll bet you any amount of money it’s the cutest thing you’ve ever seen! I don’t know why, but I love it. It caught me off guard.
- God’s Billboards – You know all those billboards across the highways everywhere? Duane Sorensen has them all together in this virtual highway with the theme from “Forrest Gump” playing in the background. Legend has it that those billboards are paid for anonymously in cash, and no one knows who’s behind it. (wanna bet the guy looks like George Burns?). My favorite: “What part of ‘Thou Shalt Not’ didn’t you understand????“
