hey, love your site. Rock on. I printed out a picture of your
Jesus Dress Up, with Jesus in a little "Devil" outfit. Yes,
I handed to a very big christian who happens to be quite a
little arrogant man. He proceeded to stomp it to the ground,
and walk off heaving.
It made my day. From the looks of everyone laughing, I say
it made theirs also.
Your site is definitely my favorite... I'm always entertained
with your humor (and artwork). A friend of mine told me about
your 'jesus dress up' page, I was very intrigued because that's
definitely my type of humor. I have such a fun time reading
the hate mail.. I don't understand why people like that would
worry so much about a website.. if they really care, they
should just move on in their bible studies and forget about
people that they would consider to be 'sinful'. I have a delicious
hatred for people that engulf themselves in things that upset
makes no sense.. if you hate or are disgusted with something,
why send emails and worry yourself about it? Although, it
is very amusing to read the emails.. much of their time could've
been saved by not letting things get to them. Although they
are just standing up for what they believe in, they have to
realize that it's only a website. I think people take life
far too seriously, and I admire those who aren't afraid to
have a good time and joke around about it. I'm all about having
fun, and not worrying about what people think about something
I like. But summing it all up.. You seem like such an interesting
person.. I wish I knew you:o)
on the kick ass web site. Personally I find the hate-mail
to be the most hilarious part of your page.
I also was once a Christian, so I get a kick out of seeing
the mentality of the group that I was once a part of. I attend
a Catholic school at the moment and as often as I can I try
to incorporate Jesus into everything I do. If I don't know
an answer on a test, the answer is Jesus. If I cannot think
of an idea for my next social project, the answer is Jesus.
Just this year I wrote a retro style sitcom for a dramatic
script in my communications class. I thought it was alright.
If you would like to take a look at it let me know. Its called
"That's My Jesus". It has all of those gimmicks like the catch
phrases that were so common on those stupid shows, like that
one with Urkel. The only difference is that it takes place
in heaven and it has a bunch of biblical characters in it.
mocking of Christ is an incredibly underrated activity. I
feel that if people could poke fun at everything that they
or anyone else find sacred, the world would be a much nicer
place. Keep up the good work man. One day when you are snickering
before "god" it will all be worth it, I guarantee it. Write
me back if you have the time :)
I love you. I know you hear this all the time and are probably
sick of it, nevertheless, it's true. While dress up jesus
is amusing and all, I think your true talent lies in movie
reviews. I couldn't even begin to produce a whole list of
movies for you to review. Every movie would be great once
you got done critiquing it. I did recently see The Replacements
with Keanu Reeves and it was an extra big helping of shit.
Perhaps you could start there. I also have included several
links for yummy stuff.
But I do enjoy your
site, and I will even more so now that I can kind of match the
person to the pages. When I have time I want to look over your
art again and see what it says to me now, just to see if my
perspective has changed since seeing you face to face. My only
regret.... we'll never know what the cleavage was worth to you.
just wanted to drop you a quick line and tell you that
I enjoyed meeting you and puttting a face to the "evil"
Bob who is out there trying to torture all those innocent
Christians by making them think for themselves. I hope
I didn't manipulate your time too much, or interfere
with your coffee time. I'm not really sure what opinions
of mine you would want about your site, so if you ask,
I'll be more than happy to answer, but off the top of
my head I'm not sure what you're looking for from me.
you Lori. It was great to meet you as well. I really did have
a pleasant time with you. I hope that your time in Chicago
|I had a wonderful
weekend in Chicago, and my roommate still can't believe I met
you but I think she's getting used to the idea that you're a
real person. *laughing* You have interesting timing.... I'm
looking at your art pages right now.
really?! And what are you thinking about the art (and me) now?
Ugh, it's hard
to do this in email... but.... Your art is good, really good.
I always thought that, and I envy your talent. The story that
you told me about your mother throwing away your art stuns
me when I look at the things you have created, and I wish
that she would have acknowledged your talent before she condemned
your subject matter. I'm almost offended on your behalf that
she didn't recognize your talent (but since you're getting
acknowledgement from all the ladies now, I can't feel too
sorry for you *grin*) I'm also amazed that you stuck with
it and glad for you that you did, because I can see the suffering
and pain you were going through, and I think it would have
been much much worse for you if you had no outlet at all.
Your pencil drawings
are still my favorites because they are incredibly personal
and show what you were trying to work through at the time,
but they are "young" and as you move along through life, your
art does mature with you, and becomes less self-conscious.
It's interesting to see how you went from one medium to the
other and to see how your techniques changed along with your
self perceptions. I wondered why you made the style progressions,
and I'm guessing you're mostly self-taught (certainly self-motivated)
because you were getting little support at home, so it makes
more sense to me now that you would make conscious decisions
to try your hand at something new.
This is definately
all uneducated opinion, based on my perceptions of you (like
we talked about) but I think your recent work isn't nearly
as personal, and you've learned to seperate yourself from
it somewhat. I can't say that for certain because I'm only
seeing things you've done for or about other people. It's
wonderful stuff, but it doesn't invoke the responses that
your earlier work does because it isn't as personally motivated.
Although I do alot of work on the computer (mainly because
my drawing skills are substandard, to say the least) I really
do prefer drawings done on paper because it has a more intimate
connection to the person. But that's just me, and I think
the reason I do prefer your pencil drawings is because I can
see your hand in it. If you still are doing pencil or ink
drawings, I would be interested to see them because it's hard
to compare the different mediums to each other.
And as for you,
I think you're a good man, so if you're not too busy, I'd
like to start stalking you as soon as possible. You're in
the phone book, right?
I'm a self centered prick. I love this letter AND I look forward
to your random stalkings.
Not at all. Prick? That's a "no" too. Actually I wondered
if you would think I was talking out of my ass and analyzing
you too much, but since you enjoy it, I think I'll be a natural
for this stalking gig. Yippee!
You know, I was
I really wonder
what's going on in your head over there. I'm just kind of
curious if you're just tolerating and/or humoring me, and
since I told you my impressions of you, I think it's only
fair for you to share your impressions. I'll let you humor
me on this one.... see how giving I am?!?
Oh, and by the
way, I just finished reading your new hate mail pages....
I was crying with laughter at the Tyler
files, your response about the 'good/bad times
that you have to look out for" was too funny. Then the grumpy
jesus drawing reminded me of the time I made a Moses costume
for my brother for Halloween and he had too many gin and tonics
at the bar and passed out on the front lawn and we discovered
the next morning he had broken his commandments... ahhhh......
memories ! But thanks to you, now everyone thinks I'm insane
because I'm in the computer lab all the damn time cracking
up at the screen. Can I send my therapy bills to you?
I have no problem with this assignment. I have to admit that
upon meeting you I was happy to see that you are much prettier
in person than the original photos I'd seen on your site.
The newer photos that you recently sent me are much better
pictures of you. I also really liked talking to you. I prefer
that so much over emails (hence my short replies).
reminded me a little bit of my cousin Marty (who is a wonderful
person). The similarities are hard to pinpoint but I'm going
to try. You both have a very independent mood about you working
in conjunction with a sharp sense of humor that I bet has
caught more than a few Indiana guys off guard.
was also a realization that if you were to move to Chicago
that'd I 'd enjoy having coffee with you. Now I do have to
base this all on the fact that I enjoyed sitting with you
while you showered me with compliments. But we talked about
several other things as well and I was genuinely entertained.
been trying to map out a way in my head to properly post your
emails in the next Fan Mail page that I do. I want to show
you, and our meeting properly because I think that it is an
interesting item to say the least.
Is that enough? Hey, how's the stalking of me going?
I think I need
a break from my stalking duties, but I'm really writing to
pick your brain for a minute.... no one here really has an
answer or even gets WHY I would ask these questions, but I
think maybe you will, being the all knowing Bob. Perhaps if
you can't answer this, you can forward these on to god, seeing
as how you have a direct link to him on your site.
Have you ever wondered
if you're only allowed to be so happy for so long before it's
necessary for something to come along and kick you in the
shins and remind you that life isn't about being happy, you
have to be made to suffer (usually when you're at your happiest)
and if you refuse to play along, well then the fall will be
that much worse? Is there some rule that NO ONE can ever tell
you that they love you without some sort of expectation or
apology attached to it? And the one that I really hate...
do you believe in fate? That's there's one person out there
for you, just waiting to be found, and if you pass them up,
well then you're settling for less? Who made this shit up,
I mean that one really irritates me, I might as well believe
in fairy godmothers and a prince on a white horse, but I digress.
I know you've talked
about people abusing the word "love" and I agree with you
completely. I wonder sometimes if many people truly know what
it means, much less how to live up to it. My father, of course,
with his advice, told me to go to church and let god handle
it. My friends, meaning well, tell me I'm just going through
another one of my "phases" and I'll get over it. I dunno,
maybe I'm just being morbid and cranky, and sorry about the
vent, but there it is.
Christ Lori! This is definitely a subject that I am not experienced
in. All of my romantic relationships have ended. My eyes are
bigger than my capabilities, and my heartless Vulcan logic
does not mince well with an eternal love outlook. Not only
that, but my opinion changes depending on whatever my current
status might be at any given moment.
here's how I am at present. I am single and in love with nobody.
My mood is slightly down due to what looks to be a long Winter
of cheesy star tributes for those who were obliterated in
the terrorist attacks. And more importantly, my little world
needs some change but I'm not sure what that change should
be (I think that I need to be doing more art). So with all
of this in mind, here is my opinion.
is no such thing as fate. For fate to exist there'd have to
be things in life that are predetermined. This would take
all of the purpose and fun out of it. There is not somebody
out there for everyone. That is a line cooked up to be served
with pity. There are many people who settle for less. Some
are able to find happiness there, most are not. I think that
a lot of people don't even know what it is that makes them
happy. Finally, happiness always ends (especially in Indiana).
But then again it always returns. It just seems like predetermination
when in fact there are only 2 options.
is all my opinion. If you want the truth I suggest you emailing
God directly. He knows everything.
