I'm interested in doubt. I've done work using the phrase 'Belief plus Doubt = Sanity.' Doubtlessness frequently results in arrogance and abuse of power and physical violence...My work is also engaged in a commentary that is frequently about parody and irony. And I believe that laughter can have both a liberating and progressive doubting effect. But it can also have a reactionary and brutal and cruel effect. It can work in many ways.

here comes a weird comment!

so i've admired your blog for a long time but never commented. i also haven't subscribed, but obviously should. i wonder why i've hesitated? girl insecurity, because you're so very cool, chic, and also hilarious and a photoshop master? in short, girl intimidation? always trying to get over that shit.

well, here's a similar post i made a while back that i wanted to show you. have you seen these b.k. pieces too?

she is a bad bitch. i love the belief plus doubt piece. i also love what you're doing over here and when i have the time to aspire to higher blogging standards in terms of visual appeal and humor, you are one of the bloggers that sets the bar.

unfortunately i talk too much.
