There are a few people on my friendslist who "proactively recycle discarded goods" (a.k.a., dumpster diving). This sounds all well and good, I mean they get decent furniture and some cool electronics, wtc. But the one thing that really I can't bring myself to accept is dumpster diving for food. I've been down my share of alleys. I've seen the rats and coaches going in and out of these things. I've seen how dirty they are. Eating from a dumpster just seems like asking for some rare incurable and very painful wasting disease. On top of this, these are people with jobs and might not be able to afford to eat out, but could afford to go to the store and get veggies and stuff and make food at home.But I guess that lacks the street cred of picking larvae out of your dinner.

Over the years I've gone from liking, and supporting PETA to loathing and despising them.

I agree that fur coats are evil. And I think that many means of killing animals are needlessly cruel. But that's about where our areas of agreement end.

The founder and head of PETA also feels people shouldn't have pets. PETA thinks we should all be vegans. PETA feels that giving small children graphic documentation on how animals are processed, without parents permission or knowledge, is a-okay. PETA feels that testing of medication on animals is bad. (I agree that testing house hold cleaners and make-up on animals is bad, based on it's frivolous end results. But if you think testing medication on animals is bad, you should see the human guinea pigs in Africa, used for testing AIDS medication). And I do not believe in their confrontational tactics (more on this later).

I think that groups that want to improve the world need to look the anti-smoking efforts around the nation. Smoking is on the decrease, laws are becoming tougher on smoking industries, taxes on tobacco products are steadily increasing. Smoking is going away, all without dumping red paint on people.

Going back to their tactics, particularly of dumping red paint on people. It makes me want to stoop to their level and dump animal fat on them. How would the like it there were out there waving signs (a perfectly valid tactic) and someon dumped a bucket full of soft bacon fat all over them, with the grease soaking into all their clothes? How insulted, and upset by this would they be?

I suspect they would be very upset. They would be incensed.

Not sure where I'm going with this. I just saw a PETA site looking for volunteers for in people face style protesting, and after seeing their stunts in the past, it just pisses me off and makes me wonder how they would like it if people threw their own tactics back in their face.

This is the first of three t-shirt/poster designs I'm doing. The Kinetik Skulpture Team (it's a kinetic thing to use k's instead of c's for hard c sounds) I'm affiliated with is changing their Tiki T=theme to a Running Of The Bulls theme.

The first one is a bull. The other two will be a toreador and a flamenco dancer.

This one is still a work in progress.

I'm liking that FATScap font. And The other font I just bought. It's supposed to look like bike gears.

I'm watching a DVD of The Grateful Dead (The Closing Of Winterland: December 31st 1978), and there used to be a female member of the band named Donna Godchaux, who looks a lot like synapsepi did when we were going out. A slight difference in the nose, but similar eyes, chin, and facial shape.
