Art Against Empire

One of the best things about writing this blog has been the amazing people I have met online. Sometimes I reach out to bloggers and sometimes folks come to me. Bill Fisher is one person who serendipitously arrived at Nailing Jello to the Wall and I'm excited to tell you about what he has done.

What Bill does is beyond performance art. It's "in your face" art. It's art to make America wake up! As Bill said in an email to me:
Misrepresented and/or ignored by most media outlets, art that promotes political discussion or simple awareness is undervalued and so often side-lined.
I can't begin to do Bill Fisher's artwork justice here, so I encourage you to head over to his site, Art Against Empire. I will let this image speak for itself. Click on the image to enlarge it:

cootamundra w., glad to spread the word!

Mary Ellen -- Yay! You're back from.... wherever you disappeared to!

Sorry for the long disappearance...personal issues, you know how it can be, sometimes we have a few bumps in the road, but it all smooths out eventually.

Believe me, Mary Ellen, i know it all too well. Glad to hear things are going better now!

Thanks for the site. The "Home for Sale" yard sign hit home. The media wouldn't happen to be the agent here? Okay, I'm down on the media, but I think that I'm totally justified. Media people don't look at all reliable to me these days. I wonder - do they have consciences that keep them awake at night? I'm betting not.

Madwoman (okay, Jell-o Nailer) keep on keeping us on our toes.
