  • Hope that dude doesn’t see that you’ve taken a photo of his work. I took one of his Obama painting and he yelled at me. And when I apologized he continued to yell about how taking a photo of his paintings was like stealing — as if I was not buying one because I can instead just take a photo of it. It was embarrassing and he was a complete jerk (and illogical).

  • I thought he did see me when I took the photo, but he didn’t say anything. It’s totally fine to photograph people and their possessions in a public space like that, so he can’t legally stop you, but he could cover his work or pack up and leave if he wanted absolute privacy. It would only be like stealing if you used a tripod and lighting to make an exact copy of one of his paintings. I like his paintings! Here’s the direct link to my photo in case anyone wants to see the full-size version, or use it in a blog or something (with attribution and link). Happy 4th everyone!

  • “July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.
    I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations,
    as the great anniversary Festival.
    It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn
    Acts of Devotion to God Almighty.
    It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of
    this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

    -John Adams writing to his wife Abigail, July 3, 1776 from Philadelphia.

    • i think we’re still doing all that.
      maybe without the bells.

      i’d like to see the whole no taxation without representation thing too.
