A Lizard and a Hinge


Not sure what inspired me to take a shot of a rusty hinge and a Western Fence Lizard, or why I was reminded of some professional quality calendar photography from years past.

Charles, you don’t read here, but your eye for balance and colour is amazing. Please post more of your artistry. Better yet, post a video of your musical compositions with images. What have you got to lose?

Judging by your Alexa stats, not much. BTW, you don’t have James Brown hair, so at least you’ve got that going for you.

And O’Reilly‘s not gonna apologize to you either, Charles. Rock on.

Largest Lizardoid Footprint Ever Found in Australia.

The largest dinosaur footprint found to date was discovered in Australia recently. This previously unknown species has been named Mannulus Cauda Johnsonia for obvious reasons.

Did Charles Johnson Help Save a Marriage?

The answer is NO.

Charles Johnson never saved anything, including his credibility, self-respect and his own blog. Almost six years ago he beclowned himself in defense of Rep. Anthony Weiner, and we all know how that turned out.

Recent reports suggest that Weiner‘s proxy wife Huma Abedinis working hard” to get them back together, now that the political heat is off. I suspect that her husband of convenience is doing the *ahem* same.

Meanwhile, Charles’ original Tweet is still functioning, unlike his neocortex.

Yeah, that classic deserves many more retweets than it’s received. Now about that dated avatar, Charles…

“Reap The Whirlwind.” – Charles Johnson


Judge Neil Gorsuch was nominated and approved to serve in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals by a unanimous vote of support. Why is his nomination to the Supreme Court any different?

Yeah, Charles. Let’s “reap the whirlwind.”

But let’s talk about this instead. You want to ‘splain your one degree of separation from convicted felons?

Johnson => Rauhauser => Kimberlin

Johnson => Schmalfeldt => Kimberlin

Johnson => Barrett Brown => ????

Yeah, this crap has been going on for a long while. You erased the entire history of your own @lizardoid Twitter account to hide it, and that means what?

It means that you’re a complete mess, Charles.

 


How to Art

A lot of things have changed in The Swamp, besides a fatter logo, new formatting flaws and floods of adware, so I put on the dumpster diving suit and decided to have a look at The New Little Green Footballs.

In years past, Diary of Daedalus could find easy fodder for new posts just by eyeballing the downdings, but those days are gone. It’s rare to find a comment with a red negative, and that means that either Charles Johnson is squelching them or  he’s finally achieved homogeneity. (For you wags who think I just called him a homo, I didn’t as far as you know.)

So here’s an offensive post that earned ONE downding:

Yeah. Downdinged for calling Kim Jong Imbecile’s reprehensible excuse for a government as “The NORKS.” I wonder who downdinged it. On the other hand, updings are up. Here’s the top one:

If you squint, it looks like a blue frog with fire coming out of its eyes. I don’t know who this innocent is, but she’s got a ways to go with artistry and composition, so I’ll try to help out. Here’s the first rule:

As for cropping, I added wider tape for the borders as requested. I don’t see a problem with what she did, but again, I’m willing to help, with virtual duct tape.

Next, let’s do something simple. Let’s put a suit and tie on it.

Now you have something to sell to the effete aficionados and it’s hella better than that screaming blue and orange garbage we started out with. Chop it down and dress it up. That’s how you art.

The first lesson is free, Charles.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Charles!

Tá sé Lá Fhéile Pádraig! Póg mo thóin!


Yeah, Charles. We noticed. BFD.

First he was like,

Now he’s like,

What a great improvement. Charles, you’re a graphic genius. Now update your gravitar from 2002 and we might stop the mockery.

Or not.
