check out the sex doll homicide article on Aesthetic Poetic. Apparently, her wrists and ankles were tied. Funny and strange. Lucas and i watched a bbc documentary on these Real Dolls and their "partners," it was pretty eye opening. especially since i had no idea that concept existed.
the real doll site is really interesting... because it's so serious and there is an actual market for these dolls.
Sean Barber paints... mostly tattoo artists and their body art. and, he does an INCREDIBLE job.
Here's an article on Mike Giant's site, fecal face, about him. shows where to buy his book, etc. check it out for a summary.
what you should really do though is go to his art site. an amazing collection of his paintings over the last few years. Checkout the doll project- creepy!

So, periodically looking at the polaroid kidd's website (ridindirtyfaces.com) was something worth anyone's time, until the site suddenly disappeared.
mike brodie, born 1985, took a series of photos on the railways of runaways, homeless people, squatters, etc. which is incredibly intriguing...
Here are a few of his photo collection, in an exhibition in LA. And here is an interview on Mike Giant's site, fecal face. Oh, and more on fecal face, a great collection of Mike Brodie's photos.

Read this article...
well, college station didn't exactly get much of the expected 70mph winds from hurricane ike... a few power outages, broken branches, and some rain was about all. we stayed up til 4am (when the first rain hit), waiting on a roof (smart, i know), but a very anticlimactic ending it was for us. luckily.
there are 1000s of people in college station, either transferring from aTm galveston, or just waiting for their power to return in houston or the surrounding area.
the house in the photo- which stands alone on the Bolivar Peninsula- is thought to be one of the experimental "hurricane proof" houses built in the area. click on the photos for larger images.
here are some images of where the storm did its damage... the galveston area is completely devastated.
to see specific areas to check on homes/neighborhoods, look at the noaa website of flyover images on hurricane damage areas (including houston). you can really see the broader spectrum of the coast that way. just click the little squares and then zoom in on the images.
