Seafood Safety and Politics Don't Mix: Opening of Gulf Fisheries at Odds With Evidence of Harm~Riki Ott

Feds CONFISCATE independent LSU scientists’ samples because project not approved by BP, others
~Florida Oil Spill Law

~Linda Hooper-Bui, Louisiana State University Department of Entomology Associate Professor, writes in The Scientist, “My PhD student’s ant samples were taken away by a US Fish and Wildlife officer at a publicly accessible state Wildlife Management Area because our project hadn’t been approved by Incident Command.”

~"Once it gets to this stage, it's not poisonous," Babar the Elephant said. "But if a small animal got coated enough with it, it could smother it. But if you got enough toothpaste on you, you couldn’t breathe."
~Editilla gotta axe~ Is this man this big of a clueless dumbass? Is he this stupid? Wha'happen to this guy who seemed so on the ball when Katrina ripped his state a new ass crack? Oooh that's right, we forget he is now running for President on the Elephant ticket and must think he needs to act like a totally ignorant, over- medicated, grits-for-brains fool. Silly meeses. I mean he only needs to market himself as moderately more quicker than Sarah Palin, but not actually smart, which would scare away the Tea Baggers.

Nothing like America's Wetlands/BP Chevron/Women of the Storm PR to ruin a good delta breakfast
~Editilla Crowtellas~Oh, and btw, the now infamous BigUneasy documentary is being shown to Newseum (WhateverTF that is) ad nausea tonight before New Orleans gets a look at it. So much for ONE DAY ONLY PR HORSHIT. SpaceyG: Anyone going to see @TheBigUneasy at @Newseum tonight pls Tweet some pics/vid while there.

~Oh Snap! Here's Harry Shearer doing the PR thing for The BigUneasy. Go see the movie. It really doesn't matter that he showed it to the Brits first at The Big Chill Festival and tonight is putting it into some weird place called a Newseum before showing it to NOLA under the lie that it is showing "One Night Only".
Does it really doesn't matter, since we are now under a full court 1984 BP/Federal Government PRESS with BP/Chevron (whom he supports through Women of the Storm) forcing us to believe that 75% of the oil is gone? It really doesn't matter that the Corps of Engineers will succeed in leaving the remaining floodwalls intact with their Option 1 on our outfall canals. We Just The People do not matter here.
I doubt you will find out from this movie how integrally Big Oil/BP (who is fucking our coast with this next/current "man-made disaster") works with the Corps of Engineers. But watch this movie, you may learn something that you haven't heard before. But how does this relate to BP/Ivor van Heerden/Women of the Chevron Storm? How? Go see the movie, but can you change your congressional representative in the midst of all this incredible self-aggrandizing Public Relations? Can you? Doubt it. This really wouldn't matter if Harry Shearer's PR People, Grayson Daughters, hadn't started hocking Shit Luggies about the flood to promote their own thing and blocking access to those who disagree with that. It really changed everything and you can follow my tweets about that. I mean after now 3 years of battling Corps of Engineers PR Propaganda we just don't have the patience for web links with those we thought knew what it means. (why couldn't Harry Shearer hire a local person like Humid Beings to pump this movie instead of some Atlanta Ho who does not know what it means to miss New Orleans? I still haven't gotten that one) Not all of us can afford the resiliency of a condo in the French Quarter or a fine house uptown. We don't have the luxury of Time on our side. Who are we supposed to fucking believe here? Go see this movie.
In the meantime, the Oil is gone, and South Louisiana really isn't disappearing in an oil slick. I'm so sick of people humping their thing on the back of the flood of 8/29/05 that I can't even see straight now. What focus we have worked so hard to build is getting DISPERSED all over the country before NOLA gets a shot at it.
But go see this movie. And watch the Simpsons, Spinal Tap and a Mighty MFKN Wind. Parse it with Ivor van Heerden saying for BP everything will be OK in record Time. Time may be The Revelator, but Death is the Existential Quantifier.
I mean, after enough Shock people are ready to believe anything.
Harry wants to tell us how the Corps fucked us when their bosses are fucking us again right now. So show your goddamn movie to everyone except who suffered from the Stakeholder's avarice and greed. What is the MFKN difference, Harry?
~letwits Thanx to everyone who came to DC screening of "The Big Uneasy", and stayed to ask questions. Next stop for the film: NYC?

WOW, it looks so BEEEEEAUTIFUL on your blog!!!

Editilla said...

Thanks youz! As with guitarists, songwriters, other fine artists and dogs, I'm not sure if I can have a "favorite" of one of your paintings at this point, Polly.
But that one comes close.

Editilla said...

Oh, and add novelists, and writers like Citizen K to that bunch.

Horatio Algeranon said...


Love your work.

I'm partial to the ones of the southwest (eg, Tijeras Canyon, San Juan river, enchanted highway, saguaro, Yucca, Trickster etc), and the one of "Old faithful in the moonlight".

Brings back memories of a 66 Ford pickup that I drove all over the backroads of the Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah when I lived out there.


don't recall ever seeing "dogs" included in a compliment quite that way, though it makes perfect sense!!

Editilla said...

Thanks, Ho!

Ima Wizer said...

Thanks Horatio! And I live in New Mexico.....and I had an Old Faithful!
Editilla, T and K bought this painting! It was she who took the photograph and I asked permission to paint from that! I be smilin' today!
