Kitsch in its purest form; absolutely no irony here

the opposite of irony is wrinkley

Biblioklept

odd-nerdrum-self-portrait-as-the-prophet-of-paintingFrom a hilarious profile on Odd Nerdrum, in which he discusses his 1997 work The Savior of Painting:

Almost life-size, it depicts the artist in a golden robe, armed with paintbrush and palette, against the soft Norwegian evening sky. On his palette is one single color: that of gold.

“This is kitsch in its purest form,” remarks the artist in front of the nearly finished work, gracefully saving us the embarrassment. “Mind you, there’s absolutely no irony here.”

The golden robe is for real. He had it made in New York a few years back, and it´s already a garment of international notoriety. His Self Portrait in Golden Robe, first exhibited in Stockholm last winter and now showing in a retrospective at the Astrup-Fearnley Museum in Oslo, shows him in this robe, which is lifted to reveal a markedly curved erection. Needless to say, the painting, done…

Fake News

#tweetstorm Come on you creatives, get posting #OpChemtrails

Chemtrailers

Q: How do I add #chemtrails to a photo using Photoshop?

A: You don’t need to, they are already there.

My guess would be that the word “Fake” has been used in social media and the Press much more recently than ever before.

Fake news, fake reporting, fake statistics. Some skeptics would have you believe that any picture to be found on the w.w.w. that purports to show “Chemtrails”  will be fake, because chemtrails do not exist.

Here is a test:

Google search the word “chemtrails” in the images section.

Now, if what you see is all faked, then that’s an awful lot of Photoshopping….

There is much information and misinformation out there.

I follow ( amongst others ) OpChemtrails.org as they seem tot be spearheading concerted efforts is brining this phenomena to the publics’ attention.

help me out here

Chemtrailers

I see a lot of references to geoengineering, fake news, chemtrails, contrails, ice crystals, conspiracy theories, climate change, heavy metals, global warming, etc. 

I am a skeptic.

This is why I only trust my own photos which illustrate what I see in the skies above me, on a daily basis.
