Impotent Gunslinger

Impotent gunslinger ordering an impotent photographer to face the wrong way round, on one of those old fashioned buttock exercise machines (with a vibrating elastic belt), at penis-point.

Shooting Shots

You’re looking through your camera, you see an image you’ve seen before (an image from the past): shoot. Beudelaire was right: “Photographers, you will never become artists. All you are is mere copiers
Copiers, I’m thinking of erasers. The Erasers (1951) was Alain Robbe-Grillet’s debut novel - a detective story with a postmodern twist. As Ted Gioia states: “In the convoluted world of Robbe-Grillet, the same crime might even take place twice, in the identical location and with even the same victim. To reinforce this sense of doubleness, the author will sometimes repeat specific passages of dialogue or description.”
The book is nothing more than an account of the twenty-four hours that ensue between the pistol shot and the death, the time the bullet takes to travel three or four yards – twenty four hours.
Twenty-six years separate my ‘shooting shots’.

The Return of The Dulux Dog!

"Sitting on the twisted tail of the ‘Donkey’, he wakes up with a dog…"

The Dogfather of all advertising the Dulux dog is back on our screens (and pillows, it seems)! 
The Dulux dog is 50… but there’s actually been 15 dogs in all, including the latest edition.
The Dulux icon, its Old English sheepdog, has been a constant and highly effective feature of advertising since the 1960s. The dog is so solidly entrenched as a branding device that many people refer to the breed as ‘Dulux dogs’. Many different dogs have been used for television commercials, print advertisements, promotional appearances and even a ‘have your photo taken with the Dulux Dog’ promotion. One reason they all look alike is that they are mostly closely related, closely related to pillows.

Fox Dreams

And look what the fox did to the cushion... dreamed it was a chicken.

Smoking Like A Chimney

Chimneys are deep, wide fractures, usually in a vertical wall, into which you can get your whole body. To negotiate them the smoker needs to smoke inside, ‘smoke like a chimney’, using the appropriate chimney technique, that is, pushing as if he intended to thrust the two walls of rock apart.
