      "Something I been wondering about you," Lamont said. "You guys are coming to own the world.  You fly across the planets, Mars and that shit. What you want with crack?"
     "We seek to broaden our minds." 
      Lamont snorted. "Right. You might as well hit yourself in the head with a hammer."
     "We seek escape," the alien said.
     "I don't buy that, neither. What you got to escape from?"
     The Krel looked at him. "Nothing."

     "I lied to Colonel Zipp," it said. "We want cocaine for kicks."

The essence of Trumpism is dominance and punishment of those outside the tribal fold. It is probably even wrong to call this a policy of deterrence. It’s a policy of punishment...This isn’t a byproduct. Child separation as punishment, on display, was always a feature not a bug.

Trump Transition Team 6

Trump Transition Team 6 (2016)


This is open corruption, and it has been openly embraced.

That fills me with grief, but my grief can’t make it untrue. And if this benthic sadness has any value, it’s that clarity. There is no more equivocating to do. You don’t have to equivocate about Trump’s corruption—or Wilbur Ross’, or Scott Pruitt’s. You don’t have to parse whether a “falsehood” is really a “lie.” It is simply true that the president is corrupt and that his supporters celebrate his corruption.

Robot Drone Evolves (2017)


We have a significant human condition challenge ahead of us, so it cannot be just an economic contribution; it has to be a massive reimagining and redefinition of how to find meaning in one's life if it is not in one's job.

The Meteorologists Start Salivating Remix (2012)

The astronomer is, in some measure, independent of his fellow astronomer; he can wait in his observatory till the star he wishes to observe comes to his meridian; but the meteorologist has his observations bounded by a very limited horizon, and can do little without the aid of numerous observers furnishing him contemporaneous observations over a wide-extended area.

Still Life with Lava and Pears

Still Life with Lava and Pears (2003)

 

I could find lava. And I could certainly find pears. But rarely both.

This piece was made before I was making work large enough to print. It goes out for Karl.
