Whatever’s on my mind really.

A peek at illustration inspiring celebrity sexiness, quirky news stories from inherently pornified pop culture, tips, sketchbook and work in progress, reviews and other things of interest; whatever’s on my mind really—which more fool you if you ever take that seriously.

Latest Picks is a sort of mini-blog for daily thoughts and picks. Longer articles, stories & sketches are found in the full-size blog, where indeed Latest Picks are moved when updates to a story make it too large.

Note: Both Latest Picks and Blog are to be retired at the end of September, although both will remain available indefinitely as an archived part of the site. No further updates to past stories will be made.

Hey, Twitter and Facebook: Your wild west era’s coming to an end (

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey sworn in before their testimony to the Senate intelligence committee

And ya’ know, there are many cheering to see hipster bearded outlaw Jack Dorsey being tar and feathered or madam Sandberg viscerally unfriended by all in the saloon. But isn’t this whole “west west” analogy for the internet getting older than Bonanza?

[Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey] acknowledged they were slow to recognize how their platforms could be manipulated and said they’re working to figure out solutions. But they also said there are no easy fixes and they’re still finding their way. Congress’ response to that was pretty clear.

The chair pulled out for Google by the Senate Intelligence Committee remaining empty and despite this hearing not being filled with gray haired heads asking F’book’s lip pouting nawy boy Zuk about how all this silly social media business works (Blog updated 10th Apr. 2018) and seemingly calling for Wyatt Earp to regulate it all after some sort of virtual O.K. Corral gunfight it still seems they are firing blanks or birdshot at best:

What can we expect? Lawmakers asked executives to commit to vague ideas, like an “audit by Amnesty International,” which Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette asked Dorsey to do (he agreed to it). New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone asked if Dorsey would commit to an independent third-party civil rights audit (he agreed to that too).
