While on reddit before Christmas I saw a couple of albums posted of some really crazy wrap jobs people did to their siblings just to be annoying, and told my sister about it because I thought it was funny. So then she decided to do that to me. This year I didn’t really ask for much, in fact I think all I asked for was for some new batteries for my SLR being I only have one left thats any good. But what I got was a pair of warm socks that would be useful for something later, this cover below and I’m currently waiting for the iPad that goes with the cover but it was ordered a little to late to be at my place for Christmas.
Hollywood Christmas Parade going on here during the evening sunday, and like every year Scientology tries to use it for recruitment reasons. But yes, it never fails, come to LA to see a parade and you’ll have religious protesters that have mad boring lives. I should also start to work on this years holiday card.
Yes, I am now posting this. So on sunday I had two plans on places to go, one was to goto downtown LA to hang with the Occupiers and see NOFX play a free show. I know I would of got some good shots there. next was go down to hollywood and crash the parade as I have before and annoy the scientologists, and piss of Moxon again because I do that. Sadly my timing got completely messed up because of one unforeseen event and I had to take a longer route to head over to downtown but by the time I would of made it would of been to late and would of needed to be in hollywood by then anyways.
So I got to the parade, found winter wonderland, took a few photos and was wondering where the rest of my group that was supposed to join me was but tried out they where over at another location getting messed with wrongfully.
So once again I went to hollywood to crash it, scientology like to take advantage of the fact it goes by one of there buildings with a big empty lot for their holiday display. where there i was handing out fliers to some people saying “Scientology: Thriving Cult of Greed” and I watching one of them take the flier out of a hand of some random person after i gave it to them.
Soon after as I was about to hand a flier to another person another one tires to take it out of my hand. I told about how wrong that was to do that and he seems to have this idea what he was doing was perfectly acceptable. This is proof scientology is against free speech. They don’t want anyone hearing anything critical about them, and are willing to attack anyone that speaks out.
Might as well post this up, I really should make more holiday involved stuff over the year. This is not the first time I’ve made stuff for this time of the year, first card I made was years ago and used the old shark. One year I made a short very crappy cartoon that I might post up later on, and last year made a card that I was rather happy with. May also post later also but for now this years.
nice little raid that went on, we went to the winder wonderland on hollywood and police made us leave because they said we were loitering in which we were protesting. It’s nice how scientology will do everything they can to stop free speech, they will block signs, attack critics and make a number bogus things. Last year when we protested at the stage they got themselves a film permit just for the reason to keep us from being in front of the display, when in realty nothing was really going on at all.
let me tell you something about cults, it is all about controlling peoples lives, do anything they can to get there way no matter how selfish it is, and are anti-government. After all scientology took part of the single largest infiltration of the United States government in history. How about Tony Alamo? a man in jail for 10 counts of Interstate Transportation of Minors for Illegal Sexual Purposes, Rape, Sexual Assault and Contributing to the Delinquency of Minors. And his followers believe that 9/11 and Pearl Harbor were just government conspiracies. Peoples Temple back in the 70’s, killed a Congressman, and soon after over 900 followers in Jonestown dead… massive suicide. And another one that rigged an election just to get its member into local offices.
I don’t care about other peoples faiths, as long as you are not causing problems and doing crap for your own selfish means. I’m not trying to save the world or anything, I’m just trying to live in it. I’m an artist, I like to crate, adventure, and share my story with the world, and if I can do something that can make a difference then I don’t see way not, just try to have fun on the way and don’t turn it in to work.
