Britney Spears / Angel To The Rescue

boyfriend and manager fight over Britney Spears, who sobs on the sidewalk with her dog London

A barefoot Britney Spears sobs on the sidewalk outside her Beverly Hills home holding her dog London, as boyfriend Adnan Ghalib and manager Sam Lufti battle over influence.

Prayers for Britney this morning as the news is that yet again she's on psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical Center. Fast and furious updates can be found at TMZ.

Amy Winehouse Intervention

Angel gives British singer Amy Winehouse a good crack

Angel gives British singer Amy Winehouse a good crack.

Amy Winehouse on Crack - The Sun

The deeply gifted Amy Winehouse was recently taped smoking crack cocaine at her home in London, but the now widely viewed video may end up being the best thing to happen to the troubled singer as it may lead to incarceration and mandated treatment.

Andrew Lloyd Weber has compared the Back To Black singer to July Garland and Ella Fitzgerald, and he’s correct. However, Amy isn’t a ‘classic’ pop singer in traditional sense; her musical sensibilities are thoroughly modern, which makes her work that much more compelling.

'Gansta For Lyfe' Angel engages in a bit of forceful intervention here; how we all wish we could do the same.

ABBA And The Original Mamma Mia

ABBA, Mamma Mia and Our Lady of Guadalupe

Click above for a larger ABBA / Mamma Mia /Virgin Mary cartoon. Largest.

I'm a huge ABBA fan (largely because of Agnetha Fältskog, who wore an outfit in her younger days similar to one which Faith wears in the cartoon above, only with a heart over her tummy instead of a cross) but I cringe at what I've seen/heard of the hugely popular Mamma Mia musical, which seems ultra-hokey. Believe me, if I think something's hokey, it must be hokey.

The upcoming Meryl Streep / Pierce Brosnan adaptation however looks more promising-

Speaking of talented blondes; The Original Faithmouse appears in the following scene with Meryl Streep in the film Postcards From The Edge: watch for the exhuberant cowgirl front and center in the audience at about 3:44 onwards.

Abortion #1 killer of blacks, says Tennessee pastor - OneNewsNow

"Planned Parenthood kills more black people in three days than the Klan has killed in its entire history of existence. Yet many in the African-American community [who] don't even see Planned Parenthood as an enemy would see them as a friend. So one of the things we're using as a platform is explaining that 'you may think the Klan is your enemy -- let me show you the real enemy.'" -Pulaski, Tennessee pastor Joseph Campbell, Campbell Chapel AME

Hello, World

During the past hour this blog has seen visitors from-

Heidelberg, Germany
Calgary, Alberta
Rass, Al Qasim, Saudi Arabia
Stockholm, Sweden
Galway, Ireland
Belgrade, Srbija, Yugoslavia
Copenhagen, Kobenhavn, Denmark
Coventry, England, United Kingdom
Moscow, Moskva, Russia
London, England, United Kingdom
Paris, Ile-De-France, France
Helskini, Etela-Suomen Laani, Finland
Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany

International visitorship really stands out in my stats during the weekend. It's pretty slow for visitors from the United States on Sunday, mainly because so many people visit Faithmouse while at work during the weekdays (nice job if you can get it!) Also, the vast majority of visitors to this cartoon blog now arrive via Google Image search.

Gifts Of Faith in Rochester, Minnesota becomes the third Catholic retail outlet displaying my original oils.

Thinking about Hersel Walker; there are (I count) four variations of my cartoon: Original Faithmouse, Catholic Faithmouse, Alternative Faithmouse, and Familia Feliz. Two dimensions overlap in the cartoon below from last year, which shows Faith sharing with her children the story of a family of poor mice who live in a garbage dump in Brazil-

Seeing all these international visitors inspires me to create a few new Familia Feliz cartoons. Here's the start of the first-

Sorry I can't make it to the conference again this year. There's a chance however that very cute soul of an aborted baby Neverborn may make a personal appearance at our own March For Life which takes place at noon Tuesday outside the Minnesota State Capitol. As the anticipated air temperature may be nothing on the 22nd, I suspect Neverborn may be the only truly warm marcher in attendance....

Miley Cyrus

Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus uses body double to hide costume change transition during part of her concert appearances

Larger versions of the above Miley Cyrus cartoon.

Disney Channel Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus performs, and Faith and Timothy wonder if she'll eventually pull a Paris or a Britney (although Timothy's 'concern' is more than partially purient.) This cartoon alludes both to the fact that Miley is a self-professed born-again Christian as well as the recent 'body double' controversy where the young star briefly incorporates a look alike while she changes costume backstage. No big deal that; we used to call it 'show business.'

Don't Be A Schmuckabee...Vote For Huckabee!

A wishy-washy teddybear, a faithful mouse, a Catholic gaybear and the soul of an aborted child scat for Mike Huckabee
Faithmouse and friends scat for Mike Huckabee.

I've been a proud Freeper for years and as critical of Mr. Huckabee as anyone else... but I've become sympathetic to the Governor of Arkansas in reaction to the increasingly snarky attacks upon his faith from many within his own 'compassionate' party.

Look-if you don't like Huck because he's been weak fiscally or doesn't have foreign policy experience (neither did Reagan or Clinton), that's fair. Attacking the guy because he wears his faith up front and solely because of his faith, even though he's governed secularly...if fellow wing-nuts succeed at wounding Huck just to keep Mr. Christian social conservative from upsetting the power cart, I suspect evangelicals who helped push Bush over the top in 2004 will walk in 2008, myself included. Perhaps the Republican Party does deserve to get creamed this year as impetus for rediscovering its soul.

John McCain is currently in first place in the national polls and he's King Of The RINOs. If you compare the destructive power these two men have wreaked upon individual liberty, Mike Huckabee comes in a far second, yet he's receiving many times the criticism McCain deserves. If Huckabee is guilty of anything it is for being pragmatic while governing a very blue state. Stories regarding what Mike Huckabee's son once did to a dog are signs of the desperation of Republican careerists who wish to purge the platform of any serious commitment to values, as if this could be escapable for any political party. Not only that, but the argument against raising millions to improve roads and schools in Arkansas while we're spending billions for the same in Iraq and Afghanistan simply won't cut it, not this year. Hillary and Obama are leading in the national polls for exactly this reason.

So for what it is worth I've turned Huckabee. Freaked out fellow conservatives who suspect he'll turn Carter on us can mitigate the Huck Effect by electing congress persons and reps who'll keep him from selling Little Rock to the Saudis or constructing a chunnel to Brownsville, Texas. Not that I don't agree he may try.

We continue to do great in Google search results in our current 2008 games logo saturation project. One of two blogs join daily; thanks to all those who are participating. It's eight months to the opening ceremony in August, but we've established position and the search terms we've targeted will only received more and more traffic as the year progresses.

Here are the current rankings; they vary a little depending upon whether you're searching in safe mode or not. If deneutered the relevant search terms to avoid an unintended listing-

Bei**** Oly**** Logo/image search-#31

Remember that ranking are very fluid and change often; I've seen listing pop from #4 to #50 and then back again within a single day.

Anyway, great job team!

Bus Stopped

woman kicked off bus in Texas for reading bible to her children

A cartoon regarding the story from a few weeks ago about the mother kicked off a bus in Fort Worth for reading aloud from the bible to her children.

Reverend Billy Graham

Reverend Billy Graham portrait
An oil portrait of the Reverend Billy Graham, in progress.

First off let me assure you that the great Billy Graham has not died. I've been painting so many Catholic portraits as of late I felt I should balance things out with at least one nice Protestant.

I think I have Bob Ross disease. More often I catch myself thinking while painting-well, that's a happy little earlobe! or that's a happy tie! which must be because I'm painting quickly; the first application of oil in the painting above was completed in about five hours or so. The only drawback to my fast painting technique is that it requires (the smallest amount possible, because I detest the stuff) of linseed oil. It helps with paint flow, but it retards drying time like crazy, which inhibits my accustomed 'sfumato' or layering technique. For Billy I'm experimenting with a faster drying oil, so we'll see how the painting surface 'feels' in the morning.

Painting on easel in an earlier state.

Painting in the studio far from the tendrils of the internet has re-introduced me to the world of talk radio. Our own local host Jason Lewis is probably my favorite (he's filled in for Rush a few times recently over the holidays) in addition to the nationally syndicated Mark Levin, who I imagined as a Sammy Davis Jr. impersonator until the first time I heard him scream at someone. I seem to learn the most from these two, although today on Jason's show I learned that Catholic league president Bill Donohue is under the mistaken impression that our own Archbishop Flynn is a conservative. I believe the Archbishop would take that as an insult.

Speaking of our own local Catholic community, Martha the secretary at St. Agnes was good enough to procure for me a copy of the 2003-2004 St. Agnes church directory, which contains this picture of the rarely photographed (he hates it) Father Robert Altier (and, I can't mention this enough, celebrant at my and the original Faithmouses wedding a decade or two ago)-

Would make for a nice oil painting...

Beijing Olympic Logo

1/17/08 #5 Google text result
not listed in top 100 on Sunday!


Original post from Friday-

2008  Olympic games in Beijing China

Logo for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing China.
Click above for larger image. Dancing Beijing Man Olympics Logo, largest.

An earlier version of my 'Dancing Beijing' protest logo has appeared in a 杯葛pucking奧運圖像收集區! Olympic games protest cartoon compilation thread from Hong Kong, which I think is pretty nifty. I haven't found a similar variation of my 'chains' idea so it would be great to see the image spread across the net, especially in Asia itself. My original post focused on repression against the unsanctioned Catholic Church in China; but hey-this is China, where there's repression enough to go around for everyone.

I invite you to grab and post the above image(s) on your own site, with a return link to either this blog or the UWant forum. Fancy up the image with appropriate alt tags; also repeat these keywords in sentences within close proximity to the image post. Together we can drive the Beijing protest logo higher into Google and similar search engine results before the Olympics games commence in August of this year.

I know a few additional SEO tricks which I'll employ behind the scenes in this humble Googlebomb culture jamming enterprise. It may take a few months, but with persistence we should be able to achieve 1st page (warning-possible adult content) Britney Spears, Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee caliber results.








New posts are needed in order to help lift 'dancing Beijing man in chains' from #17 to #1, and to create a presence in text results as well. I see that the image link in Goggle goes to the original post from last year (we're being rewarded for both age and relevance, and also I've set Google Analytics to browse my URL more often); since people will discover that original post first that's where I'll add links to downloadable higher resolution versions of our image which people can then use as protest posters.

Our search term is good (don't want to repeat it here too often to avoid penalization) but 'Beij*** O*******' would also be effective, as would '2008 O**' 'Chinese O**.' etc. I'll keep an eye on related search term movers and shakers. Great work, team!

Christian bibles and house churches are regulated in China, and offenders jailed

China is now the world's #1 publisher of Bibles, even though private printing and distribution of bibles and underground house churches remain illegal, and many Chinese Christians, priests and pastors remain jailed for their faith.
