Dolls outside the walls.


Pleased to have found a seemingly official website that represents the  dolls & photography of Katan Amano and Ryo Yoshida.   DOLL SPACE PYGMALION is added to the perma links at left/bottom.

Interestingly enough there’s a strange little youtube video of the Katan Doll photographs filmed and moving.

It does not do justice to the deep itch felt in the gut when first viewing her work in the books.  There’s much ball joint doll photo work floating about that seems to miss the immersive and somewhat distressing nature of the Amano and Yoshida work, which seem the originals in the genre and most adept and pulling it all together to both attract and repel.

Here’s the Katan Amano:

And here’s another, collected work from Katan and Ryo as well as others, such as Shimon Yotsuya (another creator I find compelling).

If you go directly to the  you tube device, then read & click the list of related videos at your own psychological jeopardy…  or tantalization…  whichever tiny little doll shoe fits.

Listen to Shizuka.

Consider Hans Bellmer.

We welcome you to 2009.

We had to recover after the election…

This will no longer focus on the world of politics solely.  That obsession is mostly over.

But this is too good.  We don’t often spend time on youtube poking around, but rather jumping in based on direct google hits.  Really, we’ve seen enough home video from iCams to last a life time, in addition to the screen captures of people playing World of Warcraft, it is little wonder why the tubes are clogged.

However, while watching the Minnesotans debate whether “Lizard People” and “Flying Spaghetti Monster” are actual people or not based upon write in votes (to determine if the votes count for that still undecided Minnesota senate seat), a little blurb caught our eye.

“PROOF THAT OBAMA IS A FREEMASON” .  We were aware of masonic conspiracy and illuminati fear but had not realized that now, Freemasonry was connected to Teh AntiChrizst.  911 Truthers have a Masonic Conspiracy vid as well.

In fact, one night of utter madness while researching a variety of conspiracy related topics on youtube was plenty to convince us to hole up in our bunkers and stay away… not because THEY are out there MAN but rather because the sheer number of people who seem to believe that the CIA has launched a disinformation campaign regarding satanic ritual abuse, involving Bob Hope (?!),  is enough to make us fear our neighbors more than we already do.

Here are not links to the videos themselves but rather to search strings on the you tube:

Obama Freemason Search

CIA  Mind Control (To include the tragic Ms. Taylor and Monarch Mind Control)

And then there was this guy.  Somehow Aspertame figures into the new world order plot along with classic rock & other nwo mashups.

Visible Light

Now that the election has stopped eating away at our insides and The Team Unicorn Fairy Dust Pixie Sparklez are ushering in a new era of glittery pink eyeshadow and puppies, we have other concerns.

Big other concerns.

Like this.  As in this is what it looks like to the naked eye while passing by in your spaceship or what have you, not some Hubble-fu telescopic distortion.

Aside from this reminding us of the Eye of Sauron, ready to beam hate down upon us…. the Hubble telescope managed to capture this ring around Formalhaut.  Oh and there’s a new wee planet somewhere in the red glowing dust named Formalhaut b which is “the real story” or so THEY would like you to believe.

Yes, we did say the star in the center of this glowing, fiery red iris is Formalhaut.

In a battle to the death, who would win?  Cathuga or Sauron or have they *gulp*… combined forces?

Note “description” indicates Cathuga appears as living ball of fire.  Pure coincidence, natch.

She Didn’t Even Blink.

Those damned liberals blink far too often .  So for once in your miserable life, don’t be such a candy ass and refrain from blinking @ around 00:48.

Hack Governor is Hacked.

Palin’s email account is hacked and we find very little information.  But that’s another story…  the point of the hacking is not this bogus red herring paste (her privacy was violated being their outcry)  coming from her base.  The point is this: Governor Palin is a public official and we the people have no access to her private email account, an account on which she carried out public business.

We don’t care if that government business is counting snowflakes for the annual Alaska Festival of Snowflakes.  A publicly elected official is doing the business of the people.  Now,  it seems we need more regulation in government due to the inability of elected officials to understand the need & legalities surrounding transparency in their actions.  A law is necessary regarding email and internet activity on government time doing government business.  Screw those who cry that  “we the people” need less of a nanny state when it comes to this single issue.  In this case, clearly legislation is needed.

We don’t want to invade anyone’s privacy, we just don’t think the business of elected officials is private.  Yes yes, public officials may have a private life but their business is not.  Hey, she bought the tanning bed on her own money – I don’t care all that much.  Well alright, we are curious if she paid for the installation and how she pays that portion of the electricity bill, but that’s another story.

Thoughts from DitW

1. No law protects the privacy of your email account, anywhere. There are laws against illegally accessing systems you have not been granted access to.

2. Palin’s use of a yahoo account circumvents the Freedom of Information Act. She was sending official correspondence as a governor from a private email account.  The moment she did that, that email account is arguably public record.

3. Related to #1, hundreds of accounts are compromised a day, just like hers. Does anyone care? Not much, just the people who experience it. The only reason anyone may take action is because she’s running for VP.

4.  Hacking personal email accounts is a cruel thing to do.  The moment of the Gotcha for the perpetrator rarely matches the humilition to the target.  We think email hacking sucks.
