Charles Johnson: Unhinged


Whoa. That’s Johnson’s famous Rusty Hinge photo. The dude is an artistic savant.

We’ve seen his amazing photography before and this was one of the best of his banal and uninteresting collection. I rotated it to see if it might be more interesting, and when I did, I noticed that it’s missing some things – like fasteners, a hasp, and it’s not located on the wooden gate hinge point. That piece of hardware does nothing, and it hasn’t for years according to the rust stains because it’s been laying flat on someone’s porch deck for a while.

On the other hand, if you squint, it looks just like Charles Johnson’s brain.

LGF Calendar December

Remember when The Greatest Mind of the Blogosphere bought a camera, took pictures, and presented them as magnificent works of Prescient Art?  The LGF 2010 Calendar is still for sale, and it ships in 2 to 5 business days.

It amazes me how Charles Johnson could sketch out a photo on a PostIt Note, and then find an exact matching scenario to photograph and post on LGF as “Overnight #Rumpswab.” Pure brilliance.
