Strange times...






" Jesus My God My God" and "None"

These are pieces by 2 of my artists. As you may note they both have the same theme, but their perspectives are opposite. I am curious to hear your opinions
Fundamental Christians see these as the last days. Many people think we are entering into WWIII. Both of these artists have recently been admitted to psychiatric hospitals for brief stays. They are both obsessive about religion: its positive aspects in one case and its negative in the other. Is it possible that the brilliance of these 2 disturbed artists is a foreshadowing of what is to come?

Why is Jesus white?

I don't think this is anywhere close to the end of days...fundamentalists have thought we were in the end of days, probably since the middle ages. They were wrong 1500 years ago, and they're probably wrong now. Besides, how much sense does it really make for a dead carpenter to come down from the sky, rescue only rabid christians, and then leave everyone else to die and burn forever? Doesn't that go directly agains the kind Jesus who loves all men women and children, no matter race or religion?

I'm living proof that this is not WWIII. Why? If it was, someone would have nuked DC, and being a scant 12 miles away, I'd be bathed in radiation and die a slow painful death!

You have a great website and it is great for the community. Thanks for all the great pictures too. You should join the disscusions here as well:

New Orleans community blog

Please join in the discussions there and link people back to your blog. There are already a lot of people participating daily. It is a great place to poll the communitie and see how people realy feel about the issues. This should serve to strengthen the new orleans community and NO online commlunity as a whole.

My belief is that to get real transparency in our government and in our planning process we need to get the young folks involved and up to speed on the new paradigms. Teaching only civics in school and not smart growth and new urbanism concepts is like teaching our kids to count to ten without teaching them arithmetic, algebra and calculus and then expecting them to make it in this world.

Help us get those concepts out there! Create an account on live journal and help build a community, an educated community.

Thanks,

From one "anonymous" blogger to another. I appreciate that you are entitled to your opinion but, i think that it was unnecessary to use profanity to express yourself.

Obviously the Jesus artist must be a racist! Who ever heard of a white Jesus?

I imagine that Jesus probably looked more like Osama Bin Laden given he was Middle Eastern.

That would be "Galerie".

If you are an artist I would love for you to give me a submission to see if you can do any better.

If you are not an artist or a collector, your opinion is without merit or meaning as it does not equate to expertise or money.

if i am "an artist"? if you could spot "an artist" your gallery would not be full of such amateurish jesus paintings.

Raspootin said...

Who said my gallery was filled with Jesus paintings?

Oh - that’s what you just said.

Please try to get your facts straight.

If you think you have an opinion at least take the time to check out the site; conveniently linked on this blog.

Aren't trolls fun?

Raspootin said...

I guess they are slightly better than no comments at all.

sorry. jesus paintings, dead rock stars swathed in plastic, and look-alike storefronts of new orleans. all crap.

Raspootin said...

You still have not followed the link that is still conveniently placed on this blog.

What a shame that you can not click on a link.

But you are still going just like the little pink bunny.

Raspootin said...

Excuse me?

Oh - are you still talking about jesus and the nun?

How boring.

yes! i'm sure more bad paintings from people faking mental illness will surface. why do you play into their crap? that's the bigger question.

NO RESPECT said...

Hey-it's fucked you don't give either artist credit on your site.

I think Jesus is confused by the image on the shrimp tail, and if you went to catholic school in the 60's you would recognize that look on the nun's face. Similar to Sister Eudes face when she found out we had a boy girl party and actually slow danced together.

Zihuatanejo said...

there is a few posts about artis at the New Oleans LIvejournal blog you should check out.

One good thing about my childhood was that it did not involve Catholic schools or nuns. I have heard some pretty scary stories...
