Its getting heated!

I’ve been trying to stay positive about this election, but I am indulging in a little cathartic negativity with this post. Humor helps me cope. Enjoy. -Shepard

My friend Kim who I attended RISD with and shared my love of punk, is a very progressive, talented woman, basically the antithesis of Palin. She made a shirt that states her feelings toward Palin. You may share those feelings and wish to express them… your chance to do that is a click away right here. www.fuckoffsarahpalin.com

My friend Alex made this one. Spinal Tap said there is a “a fine line between clever and stupid”. Well, there is a big divide between Obama and McCain but this graphic is clever and Palin is stupid, so there you go… the profound wisdom of Spinal Tap applies to everything.

billy, its a wrap!

We had a very fun party for Billy Idol and his tour end at our gallery the other night. I DJ’ed with Billy’s son Willem and some pretty awesome people rolled through including half of the Sex Pistols. The Sex Pistols changed my life, so it was hard for me to act like it was no big deal. If you don’t own “Never Mind the Bollocks Here’s the Sex Pistols” you should be publicly flogged. Steve Jones also played on Billy’s song “Dancin” with Myself”.

What do you think?

The real deal

Another Obama post? I know there have been many posts and articles about my support for Barack Obama, but this article is the most thorough history of my involvement. I also thought it would be good to re-post the free Obama vector art download. I don’t think I’m being overly dramatic when I say that this great country is in danger of remaining in the hands of lunatics who have shrewdly manipulated the bewildered herd into thinking the Republicans are the “populist” or “family values” party. McCain has nine houses and he calls Obama an “elitist”. I’m so disheartened that people are falling for that crap. Let’s push things forward.
