"There's an image I really want to do with that Trump orb thing."

I said earlier this morning, after starting the day with a post about the Trump orb and then a post about that statue of Karl Marx — you can see it here — that China gave to Trier, German (Marx's birthplace).

I still haven't taught myself how to photoshop 2 images together, but my complaint about how I was too lazy to learn somehow lit a fire under Rick Lee, and he made this:



Rick Lee is a professional photographer. You can see his website here.

And I know you might ask what that new image is even supposed to mean. Uh... late capitalism!

ADDED: Since Rick is a professional photographer, accepting this image made me think of something I saw yesterday that amused me: "Tired Of Being Asked To Work For Free, This Artist Started Drawing These Client Requests."

You mean Flynn.

I'm in an airport watching CNN, and reading the chiron. They showed Comey, and the Chiron said "takes the 5th".

This is how fake news propagates.

I thought it might be the Proverbial Pussy.

Actually, the photoshopped image immediately reminded me of George Soros!

Rick Lee! An amazing photographer! I used to subscribe to his blog on my RSS feed reader doohickey but I think he stopped updating. He very generously offered his readers a free photograph from those he posted on my site and I asked for, and got, a sort of naughty picture of asparagus. (His grocery night challenges was my favorite.) Glad he's still around. (Hey, Rick!)

A similar website is nospec dot com:

Why is spec work unethical?

The designers work for free and with an often falsely advertised, overinflated promise for future employment; or are given other insufficient forms of compensation. Usually these glorified prizes or “carrots” appear tantalising for designers who are just starting out, accompanied by statements such as “good for your portfolio” or “gain recognition and exposure.”

In reality, winning or losing rarely results in extra work, profit or referrals. Moreover, designers must often agree to waive ownership of their work to the people who are promoting this system.

When I was doing professional photography [film, if you can remember that far back, and before personal computers], I was asked to do a project gratis for an organization, because they were a "non-profit."

To which I replied - that is a status I am desperately avoiding.

You should have another photoshopped version with Hillary's face on Trump's body, Obama's face instead of King Salman's, and Bernie Sanders instead of President Al-Sisi's -- for your liberal readers.

Trump flew directly from SA to Israel.


Lololol. Winning!

That's not Karl Marx, that's Madeleine Albright. (Or perhaps it is George Soros - are they both the love-children of Karl Marx?)

Is that your idea reduced to practice by another? Very funny -- not.

This single still photo is already far more popular than the SJW version of "Ghostbusters".

Yes, I know. Low bar.

Oh geez Pete you're still using that profile pic! Good to see you. I quit blogging after about 5 or 6 years. The produce blogging was getting repetitive and I found that Facebook was replacing the blog since I didn't have a real national following.

Does Trump have his fingers crossed???
