I painted those OIL spitting (vomiting) dolphins in London in 2003.
Unfortunately, what we’re witnessing now has gone far beyond that. It’s catastrophic. Catastrophic and beyond proportions. But should we ALWAYS be amazed? Are these (so called) disasters not foreseeable? Really? Will we be taken by surprise when the NYSE and so on crash again? Or a new war begins somewhere? Are we doomed to being stupid?
What I have found in all of this (around me) is an extraordinary story: hundreds of millions of dollars stolen, papers of extraordinary value, documents never before seen wrapping oil spitting Tuna and fingers pointed at top government officials. Torture, slaughter, abuse, death – and that’s just the beginning of what sounds like a best-selling thriller. But, tragically, it is actually real life.
Time for us to wake up, one day. Some day. Sunday. Sunday might be a good day to wake up.
By the way: Those fortunate enough to have watched John Waters (filmmaker) on the Craig Ferguson Show must have been DELIGHTED to have witnessed a SANE and wonderful chat.
Other than that: OIL is still gushing and the news is pretty fucking bad.
