Interesting overlay of half-Bernank over Pavlov.  A technical expansion I've never seen before.

I like the way it looks to. I have gotten so adept at blending faces, you would not know the difference between Bernanke and Pavlov if I had done it the other way.

The Sigmund Fraud portrait I did earlier works with the blend. You know it's him but it's Freuds profile.

Don't tell him that. They he will want to monetize it and eventually move to the cheating side of town.

Tell him he's terrible so he'll stay here and keep on trying. :>)

Kudos on the O'ghandi pic, seems rather appropriate to have a shit scraper next to him.

On topic:

Bitcoin is a P2P currency that could topple governments, destabilize economies and create uncontrollable global bazaars for contraband.


anyone heard anything about this? Maybe Tyler can do a story.

Self-actualization through ponzi enlightenment. Simply brilliant. This is a concept that needs further exploration. Perhaps they will forge a new religion. We already worship the almighty FRN; lets make Bernizzle the new pope.

So much has been written about that offering. I know that site very well and I understand new issues better.

I just laugh at how little is learned by the crowd.

Probably because so little is learned by the individual. They are inseparable and codependent.

I don't think you can call it work. Freelance internship maybe. My specialty, writing the songs and doing the folding back covers in Art Class.

i am thinking about what folding back covers in Art class, means. you are on the dance floor, with all the right moves, i suppose. got a lot of talent in sooooo many areas. what do you do to relax?

Tue, 05/24/2011 - 10:08 | 1304808 williambanzai7
williambanzai7's picture

I know it is hard to believe but doing this is a form of relaxation.

I was always in special art class, and in HS I was very lucky to have an art teacher who shared the view of myself and my associates, that laughing was the most important ingredient in art.

Consequently, many girls wound up wetting their dungarees in that art room.

Tue, 05/24/2011 - 10:20 | 1304866 velobabe

no the most important ingredient in art, is music† then i will for sure wet my dungarees. why do you look in a mirror so much? are you vain? you look through a camera lens, and don't seem to be screaming in anger. i hate mirrors, they tell the physical truth only. better to just wing it. you are a weirø.

special needs, banzai, in art. i am a special needs art student. makes perfect sense. i am not a handicap need artist. well, maybe i am. you call your fellow art students, associates? damn you must of gone to private or prep school, what did you call your woman, associatettes? maybe no girls did art where you went. i was the only girl in the H.S. mechanical drawing class, but i sure would not of referenced them, being my associates. hell i don't think i have ever called any one i know my associate. what constitutes being one of your associates. maybe coggy is, just a hunch†

Well we played lots of loud music in there too. We were singing laughing, throwing pots and doodling big time.

I believe today the word used is homeboy crew or twitter gang or Friends (trademarked). But back in the Old West when I was a whipper snapper, they were associates.

i don't believe you one bit, that you threw pots in H.S. but if you did, i was probably your teacher. i got real friendly with one of my students. NO, not that friendly, just friendly. still quite friendly with him. where did you got to school in the Old West? what constitutes the old west. i think you are fibbing. what kind of clay did you throw? you think highly of yourself or your manhood.

I does not matter if you believe me, there is a tea pot sitting on my parent's mantle.

You know, I just don't feel like doing this this morning/evening. Sorry. Why does every other word have to be a provocation with you?

you two, are just plain curious to me. your relationship, actually†

We have two relationships actually. A private one that takes place via email while 12,000 miles apart that is very energetic and collaborative. A meeting of very different but creative minds as they say.

And the virtual relationship that takes place here on ZH out in the open and quite public. What you are witnessing are people who don't take themselves very seriously and are AOK with laughing at each other and ourselves.

Sounds like you are jealous.

Tue, 05/24/2011 - 10:31 | 1304904 velobabe
velobabe's picture

no i don't like to feel jealousy. if i knew what you two looked like, i might have a better sense as to your relationship with one another. i am not even sure you two speak the truth all the time. hell you really don't have to, with these kind of comments. i wonder if banzai is really 12,000 miles away from you. just haven't secured his REAL location in my mind, yet. maybe he is in HK some of the time, but i don't think all of the time. his posting time stamps just don't add up to me. and if he is half japanese why the hell isn't he in japan? and i don't think you are a CFA, and have all the clients you give advise to, like you say. all this background doesn't add up to your looooooong articles and comments. but i guess, guessing is the best part of my life right now. it keeps a girl young and motivated.

And I didn't ask if you like to feel jealousy. I said it sounds like you are jealous. Actually..........you already answered the implied question.

Anyone care to join me in some Banzai7 finger painting after recess?
