Propaganda is the deliberate, systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognitions, and direct behavior to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist. - Garth S. Jowett and Victoria O'Donnell, Propaganda And Persuasion, 2006.

do you ever realize that you are being manipulated? what do you do when you do? do you ever choose to ignore and enjoy the excitement and pleasure of being a part of the progress and righteousness and the greater purpose? or do you stand out and ask to stop manipulating? or do you simply ignore and live in your small apartment? i think i live in the propaganda of my little comfy apartment in which everything is honest and simple and fine.

ps. i'm not making a commentary on any specific government or country. hm, or am i? now i'm confused. :->

love, forever

watched a movie titled Me and You and Everyone We Know, which i bought used at a near-by Blockbuster about a year ago and finally watched today. kind of liked it. well, i must have liked it very much because after watching i decided to pay a little tribute, which is this. the emoticon that represents, in the movie, love forever and, imho, art as well. ;->

the widow found a baby

Illustration Friday: Rejection
this is a drawing i did for an assignment for a class at the School of Visual Arts. the assignment topic was Small VS Big and this was my submission, a small woman carrying a big baby. then it became a little story about this old widow in the town, one day, finding a baby in the field. she decides to keep and raise it. the baby keeps growing and growing until he becomes a giant monster. so the townsfolk drive them out of the town and they become wanderers, the baby on the back of the widow. eventually the baby and the widow find the baby's family of giants and they live together happily ever after. yeah, the story needs a bit more work.

stay sane

a line from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, by Columbia about Eddie.

it has nothing to do with the print magazine. i just needed something to counter-balance.
