Vis-a-vis Bullshit.

I thought Time was full of shit. How ironic of Visa to be "helping" struggling artists by buying mural space in Greenwich Village for them to display their work. Heartfelt, really. This is the same bait-and-switch, screw-you-in-the-fine-print Visa with the sky fucking high interest rates that greatly contribute to struggling people's struggles. Life Takes Expression? I got a couple of better headlines for this corporate hooey:
• Life Takes Misappropriation. Life Takes Visa.
• Life Takes Shills. Life Takes Visa.

I like how Visa managed to find the fluffiest, safest artistic "expression" possible. Just imagine some of the crazy shit that *could* have gone up there.

Life takes Visa? Not on the Sunset Strip at 2:00 am, that’s for sure.

Look closer. That goose only has one eye. And it looks like a monster.

The fox fast asleep after getting a piece of tail. The bunny (always a symbol) upset because she didn't O. The one-eyed "birds" looking on like extras in a gang bang.

(by this point if I need to point out how the small leaved branches by the "birds" and on the bunny look like driplets of man-berry juice you'll never get it.)

And the Ten Commandments above coming down like fire from heaven followed by a trail of smoke.

An interpretation of Sodom and Gomorrah or illustration in a children's book? Or both?

It is up to no good.
