story of the day: mannequin mania

when I worked in a very ghetto version of a discount store (they aspired to walmart and the store really was within walking distance from two different housing projects) , the store had the oldest (at least some parts were from the 50s) and creepiest mannequins imaginable.

political video art

Ok, first off let me say that this isn’t a political journal. It’s an art journal. I have tried to very carefully keep my political views out of it, in as much as I can (although, they are there, if you look carefully). Why?
